I'm confused about the Oceanic-6 lie, can someone help?
After Jack helped at the crash that he caused on the bridge (due to island intervention, we are now told), he was called a hero twice-over back at the hospital. So at that point I assumed that meant: first time a hero at the 815 crash, second time a hero at the car crash on the bridge. Then during Kate's trial, the lie is told that Kate saved everyone after the 815 crash all by her widdle-self, meaning that apparently Dr.Jack did nothing but stand around in awe watching Kate wield her superhuman powers to save, feed, and minister to, the survivors on her own.
So, if Jack supposedly didn't lift a finger to help after the plane crash, why did they tell him that he was a hero twice? Have I missed something, or is my brain so muddled by this gigantic puzzle that I can't see the obvious? I just don't get it. Thanks in advance to anyone who can clarify this for me. BTW, it's very funny to think about how resentful Dr.Moralpoopypants could get watching Kate receive the glory for all the hard work that he did on the beach saving people. Especially after he was elected to the job of island leader against his wishes, and all the gut-wrenching decisions he had to make by himself on their behalf. I wish that TPTB would work that into the story, it would be fun.
