Re: Lost 5x10: "He's Our You"

My take is that the opening scene of the season is a flash-forward to the season finale, when they will use the Swan/Orchid to travel back to the future and thus create "The Incident". So in 1977 the Swan is just being planned, and the Orchid will be made after the Swan (we see them constructing it in the scene after all). Hell, it's very likely that it's BECAUSE of our time traveling characters that Chang/Dharma will learn of the possibility of time travel and thus construct the Orchid, creating a chicken/egg scenario.
