But Locke and Ben seems to have a different perspective. Ben is saying that contacting the boat is the beginning of the end for all of the survivors. Well this can be corroborated by the fact that Charlie before succumbing to his death talked to Penelope herself and she confirmed that she does not know Naomi. This message he relayed to Desmond.

Many questions are waiting to be answered on this new season. Where are they? Is the island like a purgatory since Naomi told them that they were all found dead inside the plane or was it a bluff just to get their trust? How did Jack and Kate get out of the island as shown in the flashforward? Who is Jacob?
The sixteen-episode fourth season will begin airing on January 31, 2008 and will conclude (pending resolution of the Writers Guild of America strike) in May 2008.
