Losties Only: Help Me Understand!

I don't mean the WHOLE thing--good lord, that will take a lot of time and, hopefully, I will have a blog out soon giving you my take on what they did and didn't do and should have done and so on and so forth. But there is one glaring loose end/problem that is screaming in my mind and I need to know if someone has the answer:

We know that the plane (Ajira something or other), was wired with explosives. Widmore tells us this in the penultimate episode, and we also see MIB/Smoke monster/Un-Lock/Esau walk onto the plane and see all the wiring for the explosives.

So with this all being the case, my question is WHAT THE HELL??

And the thing is that I've been reading and listening to A LOT OF thoughts and opinions since Sunday and NO ONE has addressed this GIANT PLOT HOLE. In fact it's so glaring to me that I'm worried I must have missed something, which is why I'm asking you: Did we find out that a) it was somehow a fake and it wasn't actually wired to explode, or b) did they somehow address disarming the explosives?

If I'm right about this then every writer for Lost needs to be booted from the Screen Writer's Guild and then sumarily deported (which is more for their safety than anything because, if not, I'm Coming After Them).

Wish I had an answer for you love. :(

I thought we were to conclude that the bomb UnLocke planted in Jack's knapsack was the bomb that had been on the plane.

Oh man you're so right, I can't believe I missed that! I feel like an ass and I'm deleting this blog post and will now attempt to delete from everyone's memory as well.

Yeah I'm sorry to tell you but Smoky took the explosives off the plane and gave them to Jack. So... Yeah...
