kinda like metal to a magnet. maybe that's the way ben hopes to get back. locke dead and jack or ben or hell aaron could be leaders. just a thought I'm driving on the highway doing this so if it doesn't make sense sorry
Could be onto something with your line of thinking. There is definitely something to be said that Flight 815 crashed on the island when it was carrying a dead body and Ben needs Locke's dead body to return to get back to the island.
However. This also made me think of Danielle finding the island, the real Henry Gale, etc. As far as we know, none of those groups had someone who was on the island before, so we can't say it's a requirement to find the island.
