    If his name is Montand and he says that his name is Doctor Marvin Candle, why wouldn't he just add liar and cover to it?

    Why would "Henry Gale" say that he had the name of a Wizard of Oz character and say he arrived in a hot air balloon?

    No idea, and it's up to the writers to come up with a good explanation, if in fact he is lying. If you were one of the others, why the hell would you have to lie about your name to these jerkwad's camping out on your beach? It could just as easily be the writer's having some fun with the audience.

    Regardles, Henry Gale at least makes some sense in terms of consistency. If we assume that he is lying, it could well be that he was being too clever by half (perhaps purloining from a favorite book or movie), and that could be what gets him nailed.

    Liar Montand Cover doesn't make all that much sense. Why chose an anagram that specifically points oneself as a liar, or the name as a cover?

    Why would the others come out at all and pretend to be someone else? Here's my theory. Henry Gale is an other. He was following Danielle for awhile and saw that she had built a trap. He falls into thinking that the only person she will show this too is Sayid. The others know about Sayids background and wanted to bring some of that out of him, hence Henry being tortured. This will also explain why Henry gave him a look at the end like, Ha, my plan is working. That and it also starts to make the people more scared that there is someone else. It will divide the group into people who believe Henry and those who don't.

    Maybe the others were born on the island and don't have names and took their names from characters in the books that were on the island.
