"I didn’t pluck any of you out of a happy existence. You were all flawed. I chose you because you were like me. You were all alone. You were all looking for something that you couldn’t find out there. I chose you because you needed this place as much as it needed you."

I’ve thought about this too, whether or not history would repeat itself and whether that would be a bad thing or not. I’m assuming they never went back though because them getting off the island was part of the happy ending, the final victory that made Jack smile as he died, and their going back would negate that.
It’s an interesting idea though. Will they be able to live normal lives? Especially the likes of Richard and Claire. Presumably she wouldn’t want to leave her mother even if she could take Aaron back to the island. Sawyer might go and see his daughter.
Plus there’s nothing drawing them back now. They ended up on the island because of Jacob’s manipulations and presumably he had a hand in bringing the Oceanic Six back. He can’t do that any more and Hurley and Ben have recruited Walt to be the next leader after Hurley so there’s no need for any of them to do it.
I don’t think they go back but I guess if they wanted to all they’d have to do is go and see Eloise at the church.
Reblogging this not because I was a big Sawyer/Kate fan, although there were certainly times, but because I loved how Sawyer’s “You and me ain’t done, Zeke” line was paid off a season and a half later when he killed Tom/Mr. Friendly in Through the Looking Glass (and because I can’t find any gifs of that scene).
"That’s for taking the kid off the raft."
In an episode full of badass, that might be the most badass. Anyway, it’s a great little storyline, Sawyer and Tom, and especially impressive when you consider that we only saw them together in four or five scenes spread over three seasons. It ties in so nicely to Sawyer’s storyline and character development too, how he’s protective of children because of his past and loyal to his people but also willing to kill. Great stuff. I need to rewatch Lost.
