"Now who would have thought that both Locke and Rose had been cured by the island, therefore both don't want to leave."

I think the "healing" aspect is becoming a major focus of this season. There's also Jin, whose infertility has apparently been cured--presumably by the island. Do he & Sun not want to leave? It's actually unclear--Jin is the last to quit Bernard's sign-on-the-beach project, but he does quit. Sun doesn't exactly look happy in the brief shot of the 2 of them at the end. We don't know if the couple connects Sun's pregnancy w/their being on the island. And of course, each one thinks it's the other one who's been cured.

Rose's assumption that Locke's injury will also be healed unusually fast is interesting. Is there a difference btwn. healing a preexisting disease & healing an injury that occurs on the island? What's the limit to the severity of injuries that can be healed? The island's healing ability didn't do Boone & Shannon any good, so maybe more severe/acute injuries still end up being fatal. I'm guessing a limb that got cut off wouldn't grow back either. Or maybe the island just wasn't the right geological healing spot for them, as the one in Australia wasn't for Rose.

I also wonder why Rose thinks the healing will be reversed if they leave the island. There was no implication that if Isaac's treatment had worked in Australia, it wouldn't have lasted once she left, so why would that be the case here?

Another thing I wonder is why Sam doesn't think the 1st people to notice his sign would be the Dharma people--y'know, the ones who dropped the food?--& that they'd show up to do something about it. Which would not be to rescue them.

The food drop also implies the Others are getting outside support. And the island's "healing power" has me speculating that their hostility & subterfuges are in large part to protect their very own "fountain of youthhealing." In fact, is that the focus (or 1 of them) of the Dharma project?

Oh, & I found myself thinking, "Too bad the island isn't healing people's psychological problems"--like Sawyer's craziness & various other people's obsessions, not to mention that the Others don't seem exactly mentally healthy--but then I realized, didn't we see Hurley overcome some mental problems last week? Hmm....
