Corridor under Ben's house

We see that Locke is keeping Ben in a room under his own house which appears to be the same room where Ben was keeping Anthony Cooper. Here's the stairs that lead down to the room.

Ben's book - Valis

The book that Locke brings Ben from his own bookshelf is Valis by Philip K. Dick. Check out the wikipedia page for more info.

Dharma spiced pork and coffee mug

Here we see a few new Dharma items including Spiced Pork and a coffee mug. If you look at the bottom of the mug you can see the brand which is Mainstays (an exclusive Wal-Mart brand). Apparently the Dharma Initiative shopped at Wal-Mart.

Ben in the future

Here's a shot of Ben in the future just for the hell of it. He's looking dapper as always.

The veterinarian office

Here's the veterinarian office where Sayid meets Ben in the future. We see a dog, which some speculate looks like a younger version of the one in Jacob's painting. You be the judge.

Ben's (or should I say Dean Moriarty's) passports and money

Sayid finds a lot of foreign currency and a number of passports in Ben's secret room.

The currency that stands out is an English 20 pound note that has Michael Faraday on it (an English chemist and physicist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry). This particular bill is no longer in circulation. It was used between 1991 and 2001.

The passports include ones from Brazil, New Zealand, Japan and Switzerland. In Switzerland, Ben goes by the name Dean Moriarty (a character from the Jack Kerouac novel On the Road).

Ben's secret room

Here is Ben's secret room behind the bookshelf in his house. You can see that he has plenty of clothing, suitcases, briefcases and other things he would need for travel. Why is he traveling and why is it a secret?

Another Ben book - The Holy Qur'an

When Sayid is examining Ben's bookshelf, we can clearly see The Holy Qur'ân. It is sometimes transliterated as the Qur'an, Koran or Al-Qur’ān. It is the central religious text of Islam. It seems fitting that Sayid would see it.

The payload - 31 minutes lost

Daniel finally receives the payload that Regina fired from the freighter. What happened to the 31 minutes?

Daniel's experiment equipment

Here's the equipment that Daniel Faraday used to do his experiment and receive the payload from Regina on the freighter. These are official ABC promotional pictures.

Locke finds Jacob's volcanic ash, but no cabin

Locke finds the volcanic ash that surrounded his cabin in "The Man Behind the Curtain," but the cabin is nowhere to be found.

Meet Elsa

Sayid meets Elsa (not by chance), who works for an "economist." In the end, she shoots Sayid which leads Sayid to shooting her in a way very similar to the way Shannon was killed by Ana-Lucia (two shots in the abdomen).
