Glad to know I wasn't the only one who thought this was weak.
As far as his knowledge, I'm sure Jacob could have made him aware of the donkey wheel- he didn't necessarily have to have been down there before. Or maybe there's a whole other set of videos. ;-)
And I suppose someone could have patched the hole from the last moving, or perhaps this was the first time that it was used- meaning that there was another way to move the island. Maybe that's what the button-pushing was all about? I know the colors were different and all that, but it was the same type of occurrence as when Desmond hit the failsafe.
Maybe when Desmond turned the key the island moved which is what caused the electromagnetic anomaly and the men at the listening station to declare that they had 'found it'....?
4 down 2 to go...
