‘No!! 'Cause That'd Be
Ridiculous!!’
LOST 6.10!!

Published at: March 31, 2010, 2:36 a.m. CST by hercules

I am – Hercules

Last week we learned Magnus Hanso, ancestor of Dharma Initiative moneyman Alvar Hanso, was the captain of the Black Rock, and that Jacob brought him (and the imprisoned Black Rock passenger Richard Alpert) to The Island. Tonight we get 6.10, the last big Jin/Sun episode. Why did Sawyer ask about the random door on Widmore’s submarine? Why is he so attuned to Penny Widmore’s scent? We should learn more about this next week. 6.15, “Across The Sea,” is rumored to deal with how Jacob and his buddy came to the island, and the secret origin of the Frozen Donkey Wheel Time Machine. 6.16 is titled “What They Died For.” I’m guessing this series ends with Total Frakking Destruction on The Island, while the Los Angeles doppelgangers live on. 6.17-18, the series finale, is titled “The End.” ABC says of tonight’s episode, titled “The Package”:
Sun and Jin desperately continue their search for one another, and Locke confronts his enemy. Guest starring are Alan Dale as Charles Widmore, Kevin Durand as Keamy, Anthony Azizi as Omar, Andrew Divoff as Mikhail Bakunin, Sheila Kelley as Zoe, Fred Koehler as Seamus, Chad Donella as desk clerk, Natalie Garcia Fryman as Ms. Kendall and Larry Joshua as Burditt. Written by Paul Zbyszewski & Graham Roland and directed by Paul Edwards.
Omar and Keamy died grisly deaths in the fourth season finale. And died grisly deaths again in this season's Sayid-centric episode. Mikhail Bakunin was the one-eyed guardian of Dharma’s communication station, The Flame. He claimed that at the age of 24, he replied to a newspaper advertisement titled "Would you like to save the world?" and was recruited by a "magnificent man." He eventually ended up arriving on the Island around 1993. He died a grisly death in the third-season finale. Seamus and Zoe, introduced two weeks ago, work for Widmore, but are less scary than Keamy and Omar. Fred Koehler appeared on 92 episodes of “Kate & Allie.” Sheila Kelley appeared on 37 episodes of “L.A. Law.” Fryman and Joshua are making their “Lost” debuts. 9 p.m. Tuesday. ABC.

    Re: "Lost" Finale

    by ArmageddonProductions

    I admit, the last half-season of BSG really makes me jumpy about how they might fuck up the ending of "Lost", but let's be honest, BSG was done shortly after the atmo-jump and sort of limped along with a couple of good episodes, a lot of hanging plot threads that were tied up by five-year-olds with some crayons and construction paper and a genuinely good spot to just end it with a big ol' knee to the nuts like we used to get from Rod Serling (the 4th season mid-season cliffhanger where they found nuked Earth -- and yes, it was supposed to be fucking Earth, Moore and Company can save that other bullshit for the tourists). Fortunately, they already answered the big question with "Lost" -- that the island is essentially either Hell or Purgatory -- and answered it in a way that doesn't cheat the rest of the series. Hell, they could leave a few things unanswered at this point and I'd be okay with it. Just don't make Walt an in-head Cylon or have it turn out that the numbers permeating the series were actually the mathematical translation to the melody of "Hair Of The Dog" and I'll be fine.

When the Earth was still flat.... <br><br> I'm surprised he claimed that last ep on the campfire, but as D&C have stresses, it's definitely Purgatory. Hell, doubt it.

    Random thought re. Widmore & Ben

    by Lone_Gunman

    Something tells me Widmore is on the same side as MiB. Remember Ben Linus banishing Widdy scene? Ben thought of himself as a Jacob disciple, and saw Widdy as bad news seeing him as the opposite side of coin (MiB disciple) So Widdy could be MiB ally.

    And it had nothing to do with subtitles. I just can't identify with such a repressed austere culture. I can't imagine any father treating his daughter the way Sun's father did, especially if he wanted her respect. Attitudes like that don't command respect. They command a smack-down, via a poisoned home-made dinner.

    by theGoldbergV

    When you consider that "The Constant" is one of the all-time best LOST episodes, its a bit odd to say the least that a character who the auidence is so attached to gets only a few scenes in season 5 and one scene so far in season 6! Whats going on Darlton?! <p><p>As for whats in the locked room seems obvious to me...its Dr Artz. He's in every other episode, might as well write him back in these last few!

    The Black Rock

    by Darryl_Revok

    Not sure if anyone else covered this. I've read most of the whining about the Black Rock before getting to see the episode just now. A few points.<P> The ship was as high as the top of the statue, the combination of wave and ship took out the statue. I don't see a problem there.<p>There is no point where the OFFICERS on the ship say they never saw the island during the day. It is a fellow prisoner that sees the island right before they crash. The officers could very well have seen the island during the day, with no intention of landing there and were driven back to the island by the storm that night.<P> As to why Richard was saved. Two possible reasons. He's praying when the smoke monster comes at him OR because he was the only one alive who was in chains and no threat.<P>Just throwing it out there. I'm sure the writers have fucked up before and will again and I hope they come through in the end. But, I don't see any reason for the complaints about the issues above.

  • March 30, 2010, 6:23 a.m. CST

    Did we see 2 "realities" last week?

    by MattInTheHat

    End of Season 5: Black Rock arrives on a sunny calm day and the MiB talks to Jacob on the beach about killing him. Season 6 "alternate reality": Black Rock arrives during a huge storm and MiB talks to Jacob in the jungle about killing him. Same 2 destined events but happening in 2 different ways. Aye brothaaaa!

  • March 30, 2010, 6:30 a.m. CST

    ...and then...

    by MattInTheHat

    This theory also implies that in one reality the statue is buggered, in the other it is not. Which means (possibly) that when they were time jumping in Season 5 and saw the statue, it could have been the "other" reality.

    by Crow3711

    I Wanted to Say Something About The Black Rock/Storm Controversy

    by Crow3711

    I don't think a lot of you have any idea how getting to shore in a massive, 1800s pirate worked. When Jacob and MiB sitting on the beach on a perfectly lovely day watching the black rock, it was still at lesat 2 or 3 miles off shore. Fairly close nautical wise, but it takes a ship with nothing but sails, that weighs that fucking much, an incredibly long time to beat the tide and actually get to shore. A long time as in, like an entire day. It became night out before they managed to break through the tide, and combine that with the islands wonderful ability to go from peaceful to batshit insane storm weather...I don't find it unrealistic at all to believe all of that happened and makes sense. I will admit it seems stupid that made such an obvious change in time and weather between the two, because they sohuld have known most people will throw a shitfit and don't really know how long a boat can take to get inland...I'm just saying, its not really a huge continuity error or anything like that. It makes sense. Just like it makes complete sense the black rock would smash that statue. Those ships weighed an ENORMOUS amount. It would have smashed that rock to pieces. If you dropped that ship on a modern day office building the thing would probably fall over for gods sake. <p> Anyway, so, in my opinion, that all makes sense, even if it wasnt done in the most elegant manner. For my money, the way they should have done is during S5 finale, after their little conversation on the beach, as MiB starts to walk away, it just starts to drizzle a little a bit, and Jacob looks up at the sky then back out at the boat. We see it just beginning to rain, effectively bridging the gap between what we saw then and what we saw last week. Just a little bit of rain would have made it perfect. WHy they didn't do this? Who the fuck knows. But it still mostly works without it. I just think that would have been an elegant and painless way to make it clearer.

  • March 30, 2010, 7:09 a.m. CST

    The side-backs pretty much nullify spoilers though...

    by rosasaks

    Yeah you might read a spoiler saying a character dies. But we're near the end of the show and that's only to be expected. But with the LA X story you can't count on folk staying dead, plus we have cameos from dearly departed cast members. So as long as you avoid spoilers for the finale itself, you could read bits and pieces on the next half dozen episodes and not really be much the wiser I shouldn't think. Because we don't yet know what death means on LOST, and we don't know where the LA X story fits in with the island, temporally speaking. Even within the flow of specific episodes, the odd filming report or script speculation might not give the proper insight into how it will play on screen. So I agree that there's plenty of spoilery stuff out there that's rather involved, yet having read a lot of it myself I don't particularly feel any the wiser what to expect - which is odd, because there's a lot of information floating around by now. The other thing I noticed is even the folk leaking seemingly detailed spoilers are being a bit cagey about revealing certain twists and secrets, so perhaps the stuff out there isn't as big as it seems. This is after all LOST in the back stretch of the final season. Some folks seem to be in denial thinking no more characters are going to die. Well they did every other year.

  • March 30, 2010, 7:12 a.m. CST

    The statue

    by theotherjosh

    One last thing that I would like to add about whether or not the ship could knock over the statue. If the Black Rock had just been thrown on its own into the base of the statue: no more ship, statue fine. But, combine the ship with a huge wave and have it hit at the top of the statue: bye, bye statue. Especially given the construction techniques they had, it's not like it was a supremely solid structure.

  • March 30, 2010, 7:20 a.m. CST

    LA X as the epilogue to the island...

    by rosasaks

    I think it will be, but I have huge reservations, and think it will be conditional. Again, why not do both. Feint that LA X is the ending, but have them act in that story to restore the island past. Because otherwise, to me it's a problem that so many of these generic flashback of the week spin-off pilots taken on their own are pretty empty and hollow and filled with cliche, owing to being farmed out to inferior writing staff. Taken as a whole they don't make a satisfying coda. So the premise must build to some action that feeds back into the island story, I think. The metaphor with the smashed bottle really seems to be confirming what folk suspect that the LA X is what happens when Locke succeeds in defeating Jacob and leaving the island, and so there has to some how be some deliberation about which time line is right or wrong, hey maybe that lighthouse could come in handy for that, do you think? I wonder if with Desmond we'll see the supernatural elements of the island bleed back into the LA X story? Because at the moment in LA X we're back to the early days of season one where nobody really has reason to believe in magic. Desmond on the plane - representing the whole oddness of the new scenario in itself and then the island reveal underwater - and Ben talking to Roger are so far the only nods that everything isn't normal, within the continuity of LA X itself.

    The Statue / Jacob

    by rosasaks

    "You pirate fucks with your pirate fucking ship fucked my cocksucking house it was three fucking thousand years old fuck fuck fuck you cuntsucking fucks better have good fucking insurance you motherless fucks or I'll fucking fuck you up you fucks." <p> Admittedly Jacob did kick Richard's ass and try and drown him, but that was only cause Richard came at him with a knife. On the whole he was quite reasonable about the whole thing. In fact, listening to him explain that he brings people to the island, I wondered if Jacob was a bit sick of the statue for some reason, and decided to do a bit of remodelling. <p> There's probably a deleted scene where MIBs all "I like what you've done with the place" and Jacob's "I got these pirates to do it on the cheap. I think they're chained up in the jungle, you should ask them to do your cave."

    About Darlton

    by theotherjosh

    I'm not gonna say, that we can't trust anything they say, however, wouldn't their best play be to lie their asses off to us? We know already that they've lied about time-travel and other mysteries. And, I'm not saying it in a bad way, like they're dicks for doing so. We asked them to tell us a story and then in the middle started asking questions that would give away the end. They kinda have to lie sometimes in the podcasts and interviews. Again, I'm not saying, all they do is lie and we can't trust anything, I just think we should take EVERYTHING they say with a grain of salt. By the way, this post is only peripherally referring to the Black Rock stuff. I think they were telling the truth with that.

    Total Lack Of Desmond...

    I may be remembering things wrong but wasn't there some sexual harrassment issues with Henry Ian Cusick which explains his cut back roll in seasons 5 & 6.

    The advertising thread

    by rosasaks

    What will LOST spend the revenue on? $900k on groceries for Hurley. $900k on shampoo for Kate. $900k on cigarettes for the Smoke Monster... I think the advertising thread is the perfect place to discuss what they'll do with their share of the cash.

Everything you can fit in the subject field will be posted as you'll be properly limited to the 64 character maximum.<br />* Set up a personal ban list, collapsing the posts of people you've had enough of. Try not to ban people over differences of opinion, that's a total pussy move.<br />* Collapses posts with keywords in it, like 'spoiler' or the names of shows you aren't caught up on. No more accidentally finding out that Hurley dies next week on Lost. ;)<br />* Expands the size of the comment area (configurable).

    by deelzbub

    last week, when MIB was giving his sales pitch to Richard, he said something to the effect of "He stole my body."<P> So, at some point did Jacob steal MIB's form? Was it just another lie, or did MIB become "the man in black" because his old buddy had stolen his skin?<P> If that's the case, what was Jacob's previous form, and where did MIB get his MIB form from?<P> I pretty much read the entire tb's and figured someone would have brought this up by now.

    deelzbub

    by rosasaks

    I was certainly talking about that last week, because what struck me is the irony that if you take what MIB says literally - he betrayed me, he took my body, my humanity - and imagine the ghost of John Locke walking around the island today... well Locke might say that the man in black betrayed him, took his body, took his humanity. <p> Throughout the episode we were asked to question competing figurative and literal interpretations of the island. But it's an intriguing notion, what if MIB once looked like the man Jacob looks like now? MIB and Jacob pass those black and white stones between them. Are we to infer that the question isn't just which is good which is bad... is it possible MIB and Jacob have at times switched places? Figuratively, or literally. <p> A question I also have is if Locke might come back into this. For instance, if he were to die, perhaps as the outcome of whatever revenge Sawyer attempts to exact on Cooper, maybe at Locke's wedding. I think being dead in both realities has consequences on the island. I even half wondered if Isabella dying in Tenerife was a side-back - Richard doesn't get what the wants, a family in the New World with Isabella, because he sides against MIB in 2007 - and in the original time line she dies on the island, thus resolving some of the quandries about alternate versions of the Black Rock arriving, and why Isabella has a presence on the island, the necklace, etc. It's preparing the groundwork for explaining things like Locke, Christian, the whispers etc. And also allows the very first scene of the season five finale to be a covert side-back, much like the season three reveal, but more of a slow burn, set in motion before we get to The Incident.

    FlashSidways=Donnie Darko ending

    by Chowwander

    I'm sure it's been talked about. But I was thinking that the FlashSideways is going to end up being like the Donnie Darko situation, in which [probably] Jack is Donnie and makes the ultimate sacrifice. He leaves the FlashSidways world after sacrificing that life to become the new Jacob in the normal Lost timeline. Everyone in FlashSideways world is then on only one timeline, and when Jack "dies" there everyone, EVERYONE feels (just as in Donnie Darko) that something has been lost to them, though they may not know what it was. Whatcha think?

    Jesus I've seen so many ridiculous explanations for how a ship in calm water during the day could suddenly turn into a ship in a storm at night. Jacob said he brought others to the island. That's what it was.

    Rosasaks

    by deelzbub

    In agreement with you on the Locke parallel. It would be nice to see John Locke reclaim his body, maybe that could happen if MIB were to reclaim his? Don't see how he could get pushed aside otherwise.<P> But Jacob's physical body burned in the foot pyre, so that may not be an option. And since FakeLocke kicked the body into the fire, he must not have been that concerned with that vessel after all.<P> Considering the large numbers of people who were murdered and were murderers on the island, the large numbers of ghosty types present could very easily explained by their violent ends. Doesn't explain Isabella's presence. Unless her soul is tied to Richard or the necklace.

    No. It wasn't. Because Darlto said in the podcast that it was the black rock, and the storm whipped itself up over the course of the day.

Stop trying to be smarter than everyone. You are just wrong. It was the Black Rock. Everyone knows it. Sorry for any harshness.

    "They're coming!" - Jacob

    by V'Shael

    Desmond's appearance in LA X and his return

    by agentf1

    I haven't read any spoilers from other sites or anything, but it seems pretty obvious to me that Desmond's appearance in LA X is meant to parallel Faraday's appearance in the Season 5 premiere. It's basically a "What the f*ck" twist that will keep you wondering until the context later. In season 5 Faraday didn't appear until The Variable (episode 14). I think Desmond will appear sooner then that but the actual scene/explanation for his appearance in LA X may not occur until the finale....

    Speculation, not spoiler. Still.....

    by rbrog77

    Don't read if you stay away from this stuff.<P> First, lines from last week.<P> Jacob to Richard - That man who sent you to kill me believes that everyone is corruptible because it's in their very nature to sin. I bring people here to prove him wrong.<P> Hurley to Richard - You have to stop him from leaving the island because if you don't we all go to hell.<P> I looked up something on wiki, and it said "Most people on earth will die. God's anger, hatred, and wrath are poured out over humanity and the earth at this time. A series of violent events as prophesied in Daniel 9, Matthew 24, and Revelation 4-19 will occur."<P> That, of course, is Armageddon. Armageddon - where most of us will go to hell. Because it's in our very nature to sin.<P> So I'm of the opinion now that MIB/Flocke is actually the manifestation of the 2nd coming. <P> I wish I could remember the exact biblical story, but one of them tells the tale of a righteous man....and not being able to find one. As I remember it, God is about to cast down his fury and the person he's talking to keeps asking not for this to happen. His bargain is to find a number of righteous men. God agrees. The number keeps getting smaller. The morale is there are none without God. Might have been the story of Sodom and Gamoria.<P> Jacob specifically said he was not the devil. Again, Jacob said to Richard "I bring people here to prove him (MIB) wrong."<P> So if I'm right about who MIB is, and if Jacob is not the devil, could he be the protector of man's free will? <P> Did you know there was a Roman god of Freedom?<P> Actually, she was a goddess.<P> wiki - Libertas (Latin for Liberty) was the Roman goddess and embodiment of liberty.<P> I also found this.<P> The Romans always held that Liberty is a goddess who guides the hearts of men and inspires them to courage and hope for the future, she secures their freedom and fights with them to protect her blessings.<P> In the American mind "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness..." are an indistinguishable troika of the goddess of Liberty.<P> Liberty celebrates the victory of men and women over the limitations of their own life and breaks the chains that hold them in one condition (servitude) and brings them to a new condition (freedom). <P> So could it be that Jacob is..................................Lady Liberty?<P> Could it be that there's a metaphor here for the US and Religious freedom? But not only the freedom of religion but the freedom from it as well. That Jacob is protecting the world from the rapture. Because he thinks we can make the right choices even if we don't worship a deity.<P> Or maybe I should ask them to up my dosage a bit.<P> ;->

    Occam's Razor

    by Gordon Bombay

    I know it doesn't always apply to this show but sometimes it does. The ship at the beginning of the season 5 finale was supposed to be the Black Rock. It is idiotic to think they would just put another ship of the same era in there for no apparent reason. The weather obviously got worse as the day went on. Please stop overthinking yourselves people. Just like the moron who tried to claim that Jin really died in the freighter and it has been MIB since then...

    I'll agre with your about on a show like lost it isnt always the simplest answer is the best answer...but with 7 episodes left, and no hint of there ever having been another pirate ship that we've seen on the show, can anyone honestly say they expect them to reveal that it was another ship at any point? Absolutely not. There is no time to do something so pointless. Occams Razor does apply here I think. It just is what it is.

    by D.Vader

    I didn't expect there to be "answers" regarding that other ship in this season. What I saw that scene as doing was A) setting up the time period and B) showing that Jacob had been bringing people to the Island forever. Just as the dialogue revealed he had been doing so, so had the action (here's another ship now!). <p> Sure, I thought it might be The Black Rock, but I also had a feeling it was another sleight of hand from the producers, bc nothing about that scene suggested any way for the ship to end up in the middle of the jungle.

    Man Who Enjoys Thing Informed He Is Wrong <p> The Onion <p> January 25, 2010 <p> LOS ANGELES—George Himmelsbaugh, 32, was informed Tuesday that he was incorrect in enjoying a thing he had been deriving pleasure from for many years. Authorities in the field informed Himmelsbaugh that, although he believes his appreciation of the thing to be a matter of subjective personal taste, any positive feelings or satisfaction taken from this are by definition erroneous. Furthermore, sources reported, Himmelsbaugh does not in fact enjoy the thing, but has merely been convinced that he does by the influence of others who also claim to enjoy the thing but who must be insane or developmentally disabled if they actually do. Himmelsbaugh has responded to the information by endeavoring to enjoy the correct things in the future.

    An Ending that Ties it all Together

    by Itchy

    In the last scene, Jacob finally triumphs over the MIB, as the Island sinks under the weight of all the polar bears. The last scene freezes, and slowly morphs into a comic book cell. The camera pulls back from an open comic book, being finished by Paulo while sitting on the shitter at LAX. The title of the comic book ? "Stupid Fanboys Action Comics #1". Huzzah, fuckers.

    What you are referring to is actually a parable that Jesus told his disciples. A man is in hell and begs God to allow him to go and tell others and spare them the torment but God says that not one of them is righteous and will all die and go to hell, even if they're warned. So technically it didn't happen, it was just a story Jesus told, so...there you go.

    Re: Jacob / MIB = Vorlons & Shadows - I've sort of thought this before - Jacob = Vorlons, MiB = Shadows - but only in this sense: For the first few years of B5, the Vorlons were portrayed as mysterious, but in such a way that we'd assume they were good. The Shadows portrayed in a way that we'd assume they were evil. But when we finally were told what the shadows were about, and what the vorlons were about, it was pretty clear that neither was anything at all like pure good, and that neither was pure evil either, but both could be interpreted to be pretty evil. Just like on Lost - when we first learned about Jacob, he was presented to us somewhat ambiguously, but more or less as someone who is good. Although we didn't learn about MiB himself until late in the game, his manifestation, the smoke monster, has been presented as pure evil. I think we'll see its not nearly so clear cut, just like in B5.

    That's pretty funny, deelzbub, and I was actually thinking of Red Dwarf in terms of nice, crappy endings. As for Vorlons/Jacob vs. Shadows/MIB--agreed, MachThree. You have pretty much summed it up. And of course in B5 you had a time traveler who made everything "happen" (I'm not going to say who because you need to watch the whole series for that one) just like Desmond. Jacob is every bit as manipulative as the Vorlons turned out to be, by going to their past and pushing the Losties in the "right" direction just as the Vorlons made the Telepaths.

    a Tale of 2 Christians, from 2 Timelines, on 1 Island as the Nex

    by BillboeFett

    How come we've seen Christian decked out in full suit and tie, his burial clothes, and then also Christian in more casual wear? </BR> How come we've seen Christian barefoot, but then also wearing Jack's shoes? </BR> How come Christian already seemed to be deep in the jungle, alive, walking around, directing Vincent to help Jack, only a few seconds or minutes after the crash? </BR> Is Christian continually changing his wardrobe and choosing to go barefoot at times? </BR> I submit it because there's 2 Christian Shephards on the island. One from the traditional 815 timeline, one from the ALT universe timeline. </BR> Remember that if you die on the island, you are alive in the ALT. So the hint was: what does it mean if you die in the ALT? Obviously, you are alive on the island. </BR> We know Christian died in the ALT, and is missing. Where did he go? The island.</BR> When Hurley came upon Jacob's cabin in the season 4 premiere episode "Beginning of the End", people noted that Christian Shephard was rocking back and forth in the chair, with Jack's white tennis shoes on. But! Who was the mysterious person at the window peering out at Hurley? Some said it was Locke, some said it looked like Desmond's eye, even Jack's eye.</BR> I submit it was--Christian Shephard's eye. Up until the ALT, people didn't even imagine the idea that there could be 2 of something.</BR> So I'm saying both Christians from both realities were in the cabin, hashing out their differences, or possibly working out their plan, depending.</BR> This also solves the "how did Smokie get off the island to appear to Jack at the hospital, I thought Smokie was trapped on the island" mystery. It wasn't Smokie. It was Christian from the ALT. I would also submit that Charlie appearing to Hurley was from the ALT.</BR> Its one reality encroaching on another.</BR> Wet Walt? Wet Walt was from the ALT.. possibly the underwater island. Wet Walt from the ALT.</BR> Characters talking backwards? (Walt, whoever phoned Kate, Locke in the promo, etc.) from the ALT.</BR> Wet Locke from the sub? Wet Locke from the ALT.</BR> I don't know if the two Christians are both evil, both good, one evil/one good, or neither. They could be like a proxy for Jacob/MIB.</BR> Remember the deleted scene from "Shape of Things to Come" from s4? Two Bens? One lying in the desert where he landed in Tunisia, and another one already back from some mischief on a horse, finding his secret stash.</BR> Perhaps that was deleted as a "taste of things to come" because they didn't want to let the cat out of the bag that early on.</BR> There's always 2 of everything, to steal a phrase from LOST's "sister-show", Fringe.</BR> I submit that one of the two Christians (or both) was trying to influence events on the island in such a way to impact the end game. Sure, MIB may have wanted Locke to move the island to invoke time travel to prove to past-Richard that future-Locke was special and ready to lead the Others, to get him to leave the island to die so that MIB could pretend to be him and use his credentials to get close enough to Jacob to have Ben take him out. Sure, MIB may have wanted this, but I suspect Christian has an even "deeper magic" to call forth in this plan, knowing that yes, Locke may have to die, yes, MIB may have to rise to power, but this will also make certain events come into play that will ultimately put an end to all this, having it end once, and in a good way.</BR> One of the missing pieces, I believe, to the larger puzzle of LOST, is how a) some things just never made a whole lot of sense, and I'm not talking about how the writing changed, if they planned everything from the beginning, etc., but actual intentional mysteries that didn't seem to add up, and b) there seems to be a vague fog of some other unseen force/power on the island moving about, manipulating things.</BR> I again submit its because there are not only 2 Christians roaming around on the island, but other players and events from the ALT are moving about to influence the end game.</BR> I haven't completely worked out all the kinks of this, but this is to get people thinking and discussing and seeing if we can keep going somewhere interesting with this. </BR> I also wanted to say this fits perfectly in harmony with my previous theory that the ALT is not really an ALT timeline at all, but is a new karmic "incarnation" cycle. In other words, its another go-round for the reincarnated main characters of LOST. </BR> The core 815ers are the original reincarnated island gods.</BR> I used "ALT" and "timeline" to make things simpler.</BR> Canton Rainier on the side of Ben's van in s5, right?</BR> If you'd like to read that theory in full (with EXCELLENT interaction from responders), please check it out here:</BR> http://tinyurl.com/ydvcg2s</BR> Anyways, I am saying, the flash-sideways scenes we are seeing are not occuring simultaneously to the traditional 815-crash timeline. They're occuring either after, or before.</BR> What about the numbers? Locke-4, Hurley-8, Sawyer-15, Sayid-16, Jack-23, Kwon-42. I submit this is how many times they have been reincarnated and have been to the island. It always ends the same, but everything else is just progress. </BR>It may also be the number of times Jacob selected candidates and MIB took them out. Perhaps others besides Jacob and MIB selected them, and THIS time, say, Jack's 23rd time, is Jacob's selection. </BR>Some of you have cleverly noted that Jack moved from seat 23 in the 815-crash timeline to seat 24 in the ALT timeline.</BR> So how can the two reincarnation/rebirth life cycles occur one before the other, but the island events can include characters from both (2 Christians?) </BR>Because the island moves THROUGH time, and space, right? The island is independent/outside of time and space. This makes sense, as it would then be the nexus of not only those timelines/incarnations/circles of life, but the nexus of ALL of them. </BR>Like, if Jack has been reincarnated 23 or 24 times now, Jack #12, and Jack #7 could both land on the island and possibly interact with each other.</BR> I don't want to lose anybody here, so this next part will be the most complicated I'll get: </BR>about 2 years ago there was a rumor about the season 4 finale saying that older bearded Jin came out of the temple and stopped Locke from fighting with Richard Alpert over leadership of the Others. The big secret was that there were Elder Others in the temple that no one had ever seen before. </BR>Aside from people speculating recently that many parts of that rumor were true and played out in season 6 (Flocke beating up Alpert in front of the Others, or that Dogen could be mistaken for an older Jin, from an onlooker far away that didn't know any better)... </BR>aside from all that, the theory was that time travel was explaining a TON of stuff, including.. </BR>who were the mysterious Others who kidnapped the kids at night, that Eko fought off? Answer: The core 815ers did it. </BR>How come the Others had files on the 815ers that seemed to know so many things that people couldn't possibly know: answer? The 815ers wrote them themselves. </BR>How come we heard Hurley's voice repeating the numbers on the french 1988 island landing? answer: it was Hurley's voice, and he recorded it way in the past. </BR> How would all these work out chronologically? We think the present time on the show is 2007-2008, but in actuality it is more probably 2014 or something. That would've been the big shocker.. that 90% of the show took place in the past. </BR> The flashbacks were just further in the past, and the flash-forwards were just more recently set in the past. The 815ers learned their lesson from all the previous time-loops where they kept making things fail and made things worse, and this time they were manipulating certain events to ensure it all came out right in the end. </BR> They were supposed to be much older, and hiding out in the temple, and we would see them all come out and this would be a major shocker. </BR> Obviously, this theory is most surely wrong, but I think elements of it still held some truth: </BR> What if instead of it all being about time travel, and timeloops, its all about the reincarnations, the life-cycle loops, the ALT universes, where people from the other "timeline" have come to the island to secretly manipulate events to ensure a certain end-game.</BR> 2 Christian Shephards would be the easiest sneak-peek at this MAJOR reveal. In no way could you show that any other major character was doing this until possibly the final episode. </BR> Remember the original idea they had for who Hurley was going to see inside Jacob's cabin? Himself. ABC nixed it. </BR> What if that was Hurley from the "ALT"? </BR> Remember, we have to account for the TWO separate individuals Hurley saw inside the cabin, and we know one of them was Christian Shephard wearing Jack's white tennis shoes. </BR> You also can't say that was Smokie off-island at Jack's hospital because he is trapped on the island. </BR> P.S. I submitted this theory on DarkUFO and thought I would submit it here. Thanks for reading.

    It is kind of odd how the ratings have played out during this final season. But when you think about it, it's not really all that surprising.

    Ship?

    by tohn007

    I know Darlton pretty much said the ship in S5 is the Black Rock, but there is one problem I have. When Jacob and MIB are having the conversation on the shore, MIB tells Jacob "Do you know how bad i want to kill you" and Jacob tells him "I know" or something like that, but if that ship was the Black Rock, then when MIB talks Richard into trying to kill Jacob, Jacob is genuinely surprised that MIB sent somebody to try and kill him. If that ship in S5 was the Black Rock, then that would be a huge continuity error.

    Looking forward to this week after last week an 1800s wooden ship collided with a statue and ended up 10 miles inland in the Dark Territory. Somehow it managed to travel over the western mountain range after hitting the statue. Jacob is "magic" enough to create the wave but couldn't help that the ship hit the statue above his home.

    by TheApostle

    The discrepancy between the clear day and the dark stormy night can be explained because they had no idea they were going to have the ship collide with the statue when they filmed The Incident. If they did, at the end of the scene they could have easily had Jacob look into the sky and shown it getting dark. That would have shown planning. So far, I don't see any evidence of much planning on Lost.

    by TheApostle

    The only reason Jin and Sun are still on the show at this point is to die. My money is on one of them getting killed just as they're about to reunite. It's cliched but then there has been so many shitty Afterschool Special/Lifetime movie cliches on Lost this season that this seems like a lock. Besides, who gives a shit about their "reunion". It's been dragged out too long.

    by BillboeFett

    Dude, chill a bit. Do you remember when Faraday did his experiments with the rocket? There was a 15 minute time delay. </BR> Remember when the doctor washed up dead on the shore, but was still alive on the freighter? </BR> Do you remember when Desmond and Sayid left the island and it only took them a few mins to land on the freighter, but from the island's perspective they were gone a whole day? </BR> Do you remember that it was night when Lapidus on the Ajira plane was getting ready to land the plane and then all of a sudden it was daytime? </BR> This fits in PERFECTLY with the Black Rock seeing it as rainy night, and crashing into the island where its daytime and sunny.

    @daveyf

    by TheApostle

    I know there's no official map but fans have determined locations from the maps they've shown and the distances discussed on the show. A couple things... In Exodus Artz says the Black Rock must be 2 miles inland. That's where it's estimated on fan maps- 2 miles inland from the east shore. 2 miles from the west doesn't even put you over the western mountains. Besides, the Dark Territory where the BR is said to be is between the mt ranges. Also, the Blast Door map shows the Black Rock as being on the east side of the island. They obviously had no plan for this and fucked up trying to piece it together. Shocking I know.

    Bilbo - Interesting theory

    by paburrows

    It could well be true. I have felt for awile though that The Christian in his suit has been Ghost Christian and that the plain clothes one was MIB. Ghost Christian was in the Mobisode and the one that Jack followed in White Rabbit, He was also the one that appeared to Jack off island MIB was the one that appeared to Locke and Hurley in the Cabin. Not sure about down at the Donkey wheel though. But you could be right.

I'm just not sure.<br /><br />As for the rest of it, no sign that they are going to deal with the most important issues to me, like the capsule dump. Or revisit Dave. Or show some background of Kelvin in the Swan station with Radzinsky. <br /><br />All I can say is, after this is over they need to do a spin-off called "The Dharma Initiative":<br /><br />He's a peace loving hippy! He's an angry bald guy with a beard! And this little boy is the future murderer of them all!

    What this season needed - missed opportunity

    by gboybama

    Okay, maybe it's just me, but I've been waiting for years for all the factions on the island to be suddenly taken by surprise as a platoon of dudes decked out in black super-futuristic Crysis style body armor hit the beach and point some nasty looking boomsticks at all these island losers. Camera pans to the patch on one of the dudes' arms and it says, DHARMA.<p> POOM<p> Upshot of this is that Dharma has continued to be a presence throughout all seasons of the show. But, they've only been shown in the context of the 70's. Yet, their equipment has continued to function and there have even been airdrops within the Oceanic crash timeframe. Obviously, somewhere, off island, Dharma has continued to exist in some form or another. Why have they never come to check on all those fancy stations of theirs?<p> Wouldn't it be awesome to find out that all that info we've learned over the years actually had a payoff? Maybe Hanso is dead and Dharma has been bought by a weapons conglomerate for the research potential? Who knows.<p> Basically, it would have been great for a bunch of true bad asses to show up and say "Who are you people and what the Hell have you done with the members of the Dharma Initiative?" (Camera pans to Ben, now crapping his pants)<p> Of course, something like this won't happen. The show is now about Jacob and MIB instead of all that other shit we were told was so important in seasons past. All this new stuff, so recently pulled out of a writer's ass is going to be the endgame for LOST.<p> Personally, I'm disappointed in that. Now, granted, I know it will be an entertaining ride regardless, because the character work is so good. But, as a matter of taste, I prefer the mysteries from previous seasons to the new fangled ones.

    Does it bother anyone else....

    by Merlox

    how Hurley's "I can see and talk to Dead people" schtick is being used to convince everyone of the "right" path without any explanation of where said powers have come from? I love the show...so don't get me wrong...but up until late last season he was just a crazy guy right? And now his visions are real? How? He's just a plot device now instead of a character and it's starting to bother me a bit. Same with Miles. They don't have to spell it out completely but these powers are mighty convenient when they have to leave a temple, or go to a lighthouse, or follow richard and give him hope. In the end maybe Hurley will be the best candidate...or more likely in my mind, a new Richard.

  • March 30, 2010, 5:34 p.m. CST

    Merlox

    by gboybama

    I suggested last week that Hurley is being used by Jacob, who appears to Hugo already and could (I guess) change his appearance if he wanted to, in order to win folks over to his side. So, in that case, the "dead" that Hurley sees would merely be fakes set up by Jacob and he's every bit the manipulator that MIB is. The appearance of Richard's wife at the end of last week's episode takes on a whole new color if it wasn't the "real" Isabella.<p> Or, they could go the more obvious route, as you point out.

    Hurley / Isabella

    by rosasaks

    Look at that visual and it's so obviously setting up the whispers... <p> I do wonder if Richard attempting to summon MIB will have consequences. We assume Hurley pulls him back from the brink, but... and Richard being set up to stop MIB does remind me a bit of Alex telling Ben he must do what Locke says. <p> Isabella was left deliberately ambiguous - the discrepancies between what she says on the Black Rock and at the end, and between MIB and Jacob's opinions about her vis a vis both of her island appearances and each other, possible manipulations not withstanding. <p> Another thought, given the suggestion of MIB and Jacob trading places to some extent, given the ritual with the stones, and the remarks about bodies. Can Jacob now appear in multiple forms, free of his old body? Hence the boy in the jungle, Hurley seeing visions of Jacob and Isabella, etc.

  • March 30, 2010, 6:43 p.m. CST

    Billboe

    by rosasaks

    Compliments some thoughts I had in last week's talkback, so I looked them out. I'll leave out the speculation that we saw Isabella die in two time lines and that explains her island presence, as a forerunner to Locke and Christian and the whispers. But there do seem to be a lot of echoes of characters experiencing similar fates. <p> The line about Jacob taking MIBs body and humanity almost raises a question about whether Jacob and MIB have in the past switched places, or if MIB once looked as Jacob does now. And it's ironic, because it could be argued that if Jacob took MIBs body and humanity, that is exactly what MIB has now done to John Locke. <p> Most thoughts I've seen on The Last Recruit, with good reason, favour it will be about the final person selected or taking sides on the island in 2007, perhaps after a series of double bluffs and eliminations. What if that's not the right nuance of the word "last". Rather than latest, the word could mean previous. As in what happened the previous time Smokey tried recruiting? Not this time. Last time. Because presumably we're going to get to some answers about Jack and that coffin, aren't we? In LA X and on the island. Could the last recruit be about Christian? Because the eerie similarities between Christian and Locke are by design, not accident. <p> If the episode before the candidate sets up what happened the prior occasion Jacob and MIB did this, that would create some tension and stakes and ready the ground for some reversals of expectation too. I can't help thinking there's got to be some sort of Shepherd centric episode in LA X, addressing Jack, David, Christian, Claire and Aaron. So that could be The Last Recruit. And then maybe The Candidate could be Sawyer taking revenge on Cooper at Locke's wedding. And then whoever the candidate is, have their interaction in the LA X scenes reflect their interaction on the island in 2007. Because we were told quite specifically, and this wasn't a throw away line, that if MIB kills Jacob, it won't matter because someone will replace him. And MIB says well that won't matter either, because he'll kill the replacement too. So the Candidate might not just be the reveal of Jacob's replacement, it might be MIB trying to kill him. I think maybe this needs to be a Locke episode. Cause Locke seems to still be in there, somehow. I really think Locke has to die in the LA X time line, completing his symmetry with Christian being dead in both time lines. And showing Christian's story the week before would set up the consequences on the island of Locke being dead in the LA X world. I wouldn't be surprised if Claire had a miscarriage either. That blonde boy in the jungle - seemed to be setting up two realities, one in which the child is covered in blood and is a ghost, and one in which the child is alive and running around in physical form. I think we've seen other stories feeding in to the conflict inherent in this plot point too. <p> I wouldn't rule out Locke as Jacob's replacement just yet. Man in Black needing to kill Jacob's replacement... Would explain why this is all still playing out after Jacob's "death" in The Incident. It would be ironic if Jacob's response to the loophole was to somehow make MIB his replacement, through John Locke. And that would bring them full circle. MIB says Jacob took his body and his humanity. Now he has done the same to John Locke. So what if it completes by MIB taking Jacob's body and humanity. He remains trapped on the island by the absurdity of the only way he can leave being to kill himself. And maybe, just maybe, that's how all this started... looking for a loophole to escape from oneself. <p> What if Man in Black's name is... Jacob <p> The two rivals were and old and young version of the same man, caught in some time loop where they coincide? And at one time in life this man has very different fervent beliefs? And the loophole is a way to change his own destiny? When he was young he had a lot of power and did something irreversible that he later bitterly regretted in a way he couldn't possibly foresee. And he spends the rest of his life trying to correct himself. And this is his idea of heaven and hell, perhaps as Milton conceived it - The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of heaven.

    Is the island moving through time and space or just time?

    by Tall_Boy66

    this was a season 5 question, my buddy was convinced the island was moving through time and space, but I think it's just moving through time. It's position is always pretty much at the same spot, close to Fiji, but it's always moving through time so you can only find it when certain windows open up. that one right?

  • March 30, 2010, 7:28 p.m. CST

    And just to mention ..The last supper promo photo and 23 May

    by MacFaux

    23 May 2010. That is Pentecost Sunday, and as referenced above with the 'Excalibur' quote ..it is the Day the king gathers all the knights of the round table for a feast..<br><br> Zo, as in THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES 1 from the Latin Vulgate..Matthias is chosen in place of Judas...and then:<br><br> 2:1 et cum conplerentur dies pentecostes erant omnes pariter in eodem loco.<br><br> 2:2 et factus est repente de caelo sonus tamquam advenientis spiritus vehementis et replevit totam domum ubi erant sedentes<br><br> 2:3 et apparuerunt illis dispertitae linguae tamquam ignis seditque supra singulos eorum<br><br> 2:4 et repleti sunt omnes Spiritu Sancto et coeperunt loqui aliis linguis prout Spiritus Sanctus dabat eloqui illis<br><br> <br> "And when the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place: And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming: and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them parted tongues, as it were of fire: and it sat upon every one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost: and they began to speak with 'divers' tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak." <br><br><br> 2:13....."But others mocking, said: These men are full of new wine." <br><br> No happy ending for the Alt-Sideways? Jughead Hell-fire?! I will laugh my assss off if.. in the Alt-sideways TPTB have the Hurley meteor ..or meteorite, whatever dude, hit all the surviving LOSTies instead of Tricia Tanaka. Now, that would be an awesome ending.<br><br> Cut to Desmond: "The End"

    Islands location

    by Dapper Swindler

    is not on Earth. It exists in a bubble outside time and space. Near Fiji is just one of the vile vortices that can lead to the island. Others include Bermuda, Tunisia, and Antarctica. If you start thinking of the island in these terms much of the mysteries make more sense. The island never really moved, just that door to it.

The rest was pretty much filler. Sun runs into a tree, UnLocke goes back to his camp. Whaaaat?... Sun can't speak english, and we waste time trying to convince her to get her ass in gear. Huuuhhh?

    There was really nothing to suggest that Desmond was the package. We saw him being taken out of the sub but there was no interaction, that was shown, between Jin and Desmond.

    by RipleyGrady

    It's very plausible that she should forget how to speak an entire language. Thanks to Jack for clearing up the fact that separate languages are governed by entirely different parts of the brain. When she hit her head while running, she hit the "English" section of her brain. I'm glad the writers think of good explanations for times when speaking two languages becomes a detriment for plot-telling, which I'm sure will crop up next week.

    by Shakes

    Something I picked up on today so apologies if this was obvious to everyone before, but I noticed Locke attempting to persuade Sun to join him, when she ran and hit her head he theoretically could have picked her up and taken her, but he didn't thus making me think that people have to volunatarily join him/choose to leave the island. Hence why he needs Kate, since it's likely her presence would be necessary to convince jack to leave the island as well.

    Cutter's little speech comes to mind...

    by TheUmpireStrokesBach

    "Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't.<p>The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back.<p>That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige"."<p>Hope they can pull it off...I want to believe.

    I've said in an earlier talkback that the smoke detector going off was misdirection on the part of the writers. If Christian really was Smokey that would be way too corny a clue. MIB really CAN'T leave the Island in Smoke form.<br /><br />I remain firmly convinced that Christian is a third entity entirely. He doesn't work for Smokey or Jacob.<br /><br />And for the people who keep wondering if Hurley's ability to see and speak to dead people is another manipulation by Jacob or MIB or an ability granted to him by the Island: He's ALWAYS been able to do that.<br /><br /> He talked to Charlie and played Chess with Mr. Eko OFF the Island when Jacob was still alive and MIB said last night that he can't leave the Island in Smoke form. Isabel's ghost really was Isabel's ghost. And when other dead characters start showing up as ghosts ("What They Died For"?) they will really be those people as well.

    Where's the Sidedeath fallout?

    by Tocksick

    I thought it was quite obvious but I'm still trying to wrap my head around the ramifications. Once Sun died in her sideflash, her conscience INSTANTLY got transferred to her Island self. THat is why she suddenly couldn't speak English. "But Didn't she learn English well before the crash" you ask? Yes, but as you remember, after she first crashed her first instinct was to not speak English to anyone. Since she ONLY has memories of her flash-sideways, she will retain that first instinct and not speak English to anyone. Although she did write English to JAck...Damn I'm CONFUSED!

    In the side-back

    by rosasaks

    Do we know if Sun still speaks English? Let's assume she does. She's focused on not letting anyone know she speaks English, even though every one around her does in Los Angeles. So has that aspect of her state of mind some how bled back to the island? I agree about her looking at herself funny in the mirror. We're through the looking glass now it seems. <p> Another alternative is Sun doesn't speak English in the LA X, and what we're seeing is the equivalent of Marty McFly vanishing from a photograph.

    Why didn't V have a countback to Lost timer?

    by _Maltheus_

    Well, I suppose because this episode of Lost wasn't all that much better than that craptacular V. Seriously, wasn't V suppose to be better, and not worse and more boring in every way imaginable? Anyway, back to Lost.<br /><br />Last week's episode was the best of the season because it wasn't dragged down by these worthless flash sideways clips. It's been said that puns are the lowest form of humor. Well similarly, alternate realities are the lowest form of television (Sliders aside, kind of its premise). It's like a whole nuther show, that I have no interest in watching, yet I'm forced to if I want to get to the island stuff. I love Lost, but I really wish this season were less frustrating. It should be all money shot, at this point.<br /><br />Interesting that Smokey can travel over water in human form. I wonder if that's new for him since now he has a real body to work with.<br /><br />I gotta agree with RipleyGrady. Breaking Bad has cheapened just about every other show out there for me (cept classics like The Wire). It's hands down, the most brilliant show on tv right now. It's everything Dexter should have been. Hell, I haven't even started with S3 yet. I won't get the time till Thursday, but I can't wait. That is a show in desperate need of a talkback.

    A few observations from tonight’s episode....

    by ShadowVision

    1.@yourvillainbobby, I noticed the same thing about Jack. He seems to be becoming more Jacob-like. I wonder if Jacob’s essence is starting to inhabit Jack sort of in a way MIB became Locke? 2.We saw a little bit more of the devious nature of MIB. The way he hinted to Claire why he keeps Kate around and how he doesn’t care what happens to her when they are about to leave the island. In fact, I have a feeling that what Kate was contemplating about was what would happen if Claire reunites with Aaron. Maybe she is thinking about taking out Claire before that happens? I think part of MIB’s plan is to eventually have the survivors kill each other off after he no longer needs them. 3.I have read comparisons to what is going on in Lost to Stephen King’s “The Stand”, but I am also seeing comparisons to King’s “IT” in terms of a group of normal human beings who have this ability to keep a creature at bay when they are brought together. I have a feeling that the same people that can get MIB off the island are the same ones that can beat or destroy him. 4.Is Sayid becoming more and more a part of MIB body and soul? MIB mentioned previously how he use to have feelings when he was a person. Interesting that Sayid stated he no longer has any. Almost like Sayid is going through the transformation process of becoming another MIB. It is also interesting to note that we don’t see that same effect with Claire since it is her emotions that lead her to attack Kate. 5. Why didn't Widmore's people capture or kill everyone from MIB's group? I would think that if they are trying to fight a war they would minimize MIB's resources.

    by anotherdeadkitten

    Customs let Jin go, Sayid let Jin leave. Guy who thinks they showed the flash-sideways out of order, wrong. All flash-sides have begun where LA X left off, so did this one.<p>Best crazy theory of this talk-ack. a couple people rudely ragged on the guy who made the mistake about Sun's language, but think about it. Sun runs from Mr. Mib, he knocks her out with a tree and steals both her ability to speak English and her ability to speak Korean, and gives her the ability to speak Japanese even though she doesn;t realize it because she understands what she's saying. that would really be freaky.<p>The big frummage is the V-clock. Like, Tv networks have had their network logos and next show promos in the corners of the screen for twenty years and you just now niticed it? My 25" RCA is burning out so I mainly watch a cheap 13" K-mart TV and I could read her cards with only minor inconvenience. the folks who douldn;t read them at all? That's what you get for watching on your iPhone.<p>Someone asked where Jack got a pen and a pad of paper. I don't know about the pad, maybe an old prescription pad? As for the pand, don't you remember in the pilot episode when Jack asked Boone to go fetch him some pens and Bone brought back about a lifetime supply? Jack will never run out of pens.<p>Loved Ben's "I was out collecting mangos and I found her like that, why won't you believe me" line and the reply "because you're talking".<p>Great shout out to Room 23 with that revisit.<p>Of about 8 options of who or what could have been in Widmores locked private bathroom on the sub, Desmond was the most predictable and the least interesting, but at least he was too stoned out of him mind to walk unaided, so that was interesting.

    by Cheif Brody

    1. It was awesome! Here's why: <p> 2. SUN'S CANS! (Yes! I like when she unbuttons, too!). <p> 3. Someone needs to change their talkback tag to SUN'S CANS. <p> 4. You can't kill a candidate. <p> 5. You can't BE killed if you already hold the job. <p> 6. This explains why Ben couldn't just kill Charles. Or vice versa. <p> 7. This explains why Charles didn't kill Unlocke tonight at the sonic fence. <p> 8. This explains why Unlocke didn't kill Sun when she ran away from him. NOT allowed. <p> 9. What he CAN do? Rob her of speaking English to slow her down. <p> 10. Get someone ELSE to tell her to do what he wants. Hello, Jack. <p> 11. If your heart strings weren't tugged at the sight of Jin looking at his little baby girl on that camera...your heart is two sizes too small. <p> 12. Sawyer and Hurley are US!...THEY are the FAN BOY talkback trolls. <p> 13. Sawyer's line "No, Cause That Would Be Ridiculous"! line was written MONTHS ago. Long BEFORE anyone scratched their heads and complained..."why didn't Smokie just 'fly over the water' to surveil the other island"? Trust me. The writers KNOW what they are doing. They KNOW what we will complain about like whiny lil bitches. <p> 14. You really need to stop whining. <p> 15. MARTIN MUTHERFUCKIN GODDAMN KEAMY! Love the Pulp Fiction of it all...dead is NOT dead on this show and I love that. Speaking of which... <p> 16. MIKHAIL MUTHERFUCKIN BAKUNAN! NotPatchy was awesome...friend of Danny's? Hmmmm...You mean...Daniel? As in...Faraday? As in, Mikail is a friend of Daniel fricking Faraday in the sideways world? That's awesome! <p> 17. Also awesome he earned his patch again. Bummer he shot a pregnant lady! <p> 18. I have a bad feeling about sideways Aaron. Do Aaron & Sun NEED to be saved in the sideways world for it not to implode? Worse yet...are THEY the skeletons in the caves? <p> 18. Widmore gets all his Mercs killed and puts a geologist in charge of kidnappings? Ya get what ya pay for Chuck! What does Widmore want with those electromagnetic pockets of energy? Does he aim to sink it using the opposing forces against each other, or something MORE nefarious? <p> 19. Tomatoes are TOUGH to kill on Craphole Island! <p> 20. Loved that in one world Sun lost her ability to speaka da english....but Jin GAINED the ability in the sideways world when he got HIS head bumped. <p> 21. "Hey...I'm an Arab"...Not for long! <p> 22. TEAM DESMOND/SAYID REUNITED!!! And...It feels so good!! Finally... <p> 23. As in...ROOM FUCKIN 23!!!! How about THAT, Pa? Betcha never thought you'd see THAT room again!!

    The Hot Babes of Lost Island

    by anotherdeadkitten

    Gotta hand it to 'em, they really ramped up the sexploitation for this final season. Suns lingering bra shot, best gratuitous leer since Kate's bendover.<p>Honestly, Kate never did much for me. Shannon, generic. Penny and Juliet, not for me. Never understood the Ana Lucia hate here, she was a cutie.<p>This season they did what they could with the existing cast; Kate in too tight t-shirt, crazy looking baby-faced Claire, now seductive Sun. Plus beautiful Isabella, sexy Ilana and dirty Zoe.<p>Everyone on this show is always either competent or knows how to fake it. I love that Zoe is a complete fuck-up. Widdy tells her they'll need to kidnap Jin, she goes and gets him, he bitches that he wanted him three days from now. What an ass. "If you wanted a mercenary, you should have hired one." Then they give her an easy job: go get Desmond from the sub. "How much of that stuff did you give him?" "Obviously too much." At last, a villain's henchperson who totally screws up everything she's supposed to do. Love it. she'll probably shoot her face off by the time the series ends.<p>After '80s porn with Christy Canyon, Keisha and Tracey Adams, I never got the hooplah about "Juliet's cans". She's a blonde, she has breasts, so? But this season, at last, Lost is bringing the sexy. Kate, Claire and Sun have to bring their A game just to compete. Isabella, Ilana and Zoe (and Helen) - Lost is finally turning up the heat.

    Jacob can't be worse than MIB. For one, Jacob has greater influence in the outside world. He would have had the opportunity to create great harm to hummanity, but mostly reserves his actions on the island. In addition, to my knowledge Jacob has not destroyed a group of people or as many individuals like MIB has. Jacob shows hope for humanity while MIB does not. Even if MIB were not directly responsible for humanity's destruction if he were to leave the island, I don't see him preventing it from happening if he could.

    traveling over water

    by anotherdeadkitten

    Hmm... It was always assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that because we saw so many Jacob visitations off the island that he and Richard could leave the island but that Mr. Mib never could. This lead to my wacky theory that Christian at the hospital/smoke alarm meant that Jacob had a shape shifting ability and possibly a white smoke monster secret identity. Because all on Island appearances of Christian were MIbby, unless the first visit with Jack was actual GhostyChristian.<p>Now we learn that Mr. Mib cannot cross over water in Smokey form, but he can cross water when he takes human form (and a boat.)<p>So Smokey could have been the Christian at the hospital. and he could have been on the freighter talking to Michael in human form, survived the explosion in smoke form, resumed a human form in the air, fallen in the water and swam or taken a raft or some debris back to the island.<p>Try not to troll at me if you disagree, I'm not sold on the idea, just trying to put the jigsaw pieces together in a way that fits.<p>The big implication, though is, if Mr. Mib can get off the island, and that's not what he means when he ways he wants to "go home" - what is? Tunisia? The Past? LA X-verse?

    Smokey can't travel over large expanses of water- BOOYAH

    by D.Vader

    I called it. Also, Smokey can't leave the Island. So Christian in Jack's hospital was NOT Smokey. <p> I still maintain there are TWO Christians. The good, real Christian that shows up in the suit he was wearing in the coffin... And Smokey as Christian, which wears a dark buttonup shirt and has appeared to Locke, Claire, and Sun and Lapidus.

    Jay Jay Jay... I happen to hold this show to higher

    by GQtaste

    ground or quality and when it doesn't live up to it I get frustrated. My thoughts are that when you have only a short time to rap everything up as best you can and you dick around and waste our time it's upsetting. I hope I've already made my piece w/ the fact that there will be quite a number of loose ends that simply don't and will not add up to my viewing pleasure and yours. It makes my blood boil when they wastes precious segments time after time when it could be badass nonstop, ballstothewall adventure et al.

    Jay --- what are you talking about

    by jimbojones123

    If you are upset because I think Jacob might be a DICK, get your facts straight. He tells everybody MiB is bad and Vice Versa. I haven't really seen any proof that one is "gooder" than the other beyond the symbolic black and white rocks. Any light student of symbolism knows that white also symbolizes mystery and in some cases evil beyond the simple black. I do look at this show objectivally and sure as hell wouldn't want some half assed barely involved goodie like Jacob in charge of securing evil is kept away. Look at the pointless carnage when all ge would have had to do was say "Look, This is a force of evil, don't let it on a plane and keep at least 12 feet of gray powder trapping it at all times.

    Seriously, MacFaux? You're equating marrying your 18 year old step daughter to pedophilia? You must be a saint.<p>I don't know if you've ever seen one of those Liquid Television "Who'd You Rather" side by side comparisons, but picture it: you're been married for what seems like a decade to Mia Farrow, who's looking like something out of a Mummy movie with lipstick on the one hand, and an Asian teenager constantly imploring you to poppa woody on the other. You sir, would do the right thing, and I praise you for it. Some of us would error on the side of love and not care who calls it lust. Not saying it or I would be right, only human.

    by D.Vader

    Something regarding Kate? A commercial of some sort? The timing doesn't make sense... It was tweeted an hour ago which would have been during LOST on the west coast, actually. So something happened right before the midpoint of the show (if he cries himself to sleep 34 minutes later, when it ends). <p> What could it have been?

    Jay-- saying Jacob is a shitty deity, demigod or prophet

    by jimbojones123

    From what we have seen over six seasons is FACT! We didn't even get settled on the beach before Smokie offed the Pilot. At leas 2-3 dozen others died since the Losties arrived. Everybody from the tail section. Charlie. A few from the front of the plane. Tons of people in fights with the freighter. Whoever was on the island when it SANK. Parents are seperated. Kids esentally orphaned. All cause Jacob didn't want to be "too involved". I call Bullshit on him being a good guy. This is not bitching, it is observing what has taken place and evaluating it. I don't call you out because you don't agree. That would make me looke like a self important ass

  • March 31, 2010, 12:54 a.m. CST

    Actually, GQTaste, it looked like a different sword

    by D.Vader

    I think that's obvious. I meant, I don't think Smokey can drift across the water to kill the Ajira pple. He's been flying all over the Island, but I don't think he had time for that. I maintain he didn't kill them.

    !@#$% - man who was born to much

    by anotherdeadkitten

    To answer your question, yes. really. I really do think that with tight Kate, frazzled Claire, seductive Sun, beauteous Isabella, supersexy Ilana, loving Helen and dirty, smart-but-incompetent at what she's being asked to do Zoe that Lost is definitely into it's sexiest year ever. Or were you referring to the fact that Richard wore guy-liner because he was sold to be a sex slave? He's a pretty boy but he's not my type. I'm retired now, but in my youth I was mostly into the ladies.<p>Oh, Mac, ten years or so ago I rented a room out to an 18 year old. Never touched her, never even looked. Best friends daughter, and she was... not smart. There are rules. Okay, there were times she had a friend over and I heard a bit between songs. Not sure who was spanking who, though.<p>Man who was born too much, just a hypothetical question: if I was teh ghey, how would that change what I write here or how we hate each other? Are you a heteronormative; a person who feels there is one vanilla option that qualifies as "normal" and everything else is unacceptable, or are you a homophobe; a person with a phobia or fear, usually either a fear of his own latent homosexuality or an unhealthy obsession or fascination concerning homosexual rape? Because I really didn't think I could have a lower opinion of you, but if you're going the "calling someone gay as an insult" route, then you're exactly the same as lostboytexass and OtherJosh's Bizarro otherjosh witty but overdone parody of LBT.<p>Seriously, 2517boy, you know I have a very low opinion of you but I never thought you were that subhuman. Shape up, fuckstick; pretend to be civilized.

    "Cause That'd Be Ridiculous"

    by AsimovLives

    Ladies and gentleman, that would be 99% of the plot of LOST. And i'm not even talking about the supernatural shit.

  • March 31, 2010, 2:48 a.m. CST

    Like all Jin/Sun episodes, that wasn't particularly good.

    by V'Shael

    As much as I enjoy LOST, it does seem like they are stalling for time rather than advancing the plot in every episode.<br />A good analogy, for those who watched it, would be Babylon 5. We divided the show into "arc" episodes, which were about the Shadow war, and the non-arc episodes. By the time season 3 rolled around, all the episodes were "arc" episodes. <br /><br />Lost never seems to have reached that point, but if there was ever a time it should have reached it, it was in the final run down of the last few episodes.<br /><br />Instead we got another flashback (this time in a flash sideways) and contractually mandated 1-2 lines for Frank, Miles, Kate, etc... just to remind us all that they are still there.<br /><br />And the aphasia had BETTER be very significant, because if it's not, it is one of the dumbest plot developments since Terri Bauer got amnesia.<br /><br />Now that the show is almost over, the Jin/Sun episodes stand out to me as the weakest and least interesting of the lot. (Slightly edging out Michael's and his perpetual searching for WAAAAAAAAAAAALT!!!)

    BillboeFett: Oh my.

    by VikkiMarsdale

    As The Scared Crow said in The Wozard of Iz "that would have blown my mind if I had a mind."<p>Before I get to it, two digressions:<p>1. If you want someone to go up and find something in a 700 post talkback, using the date/time stamp of when it was posted is convenient. "A Tale of Two Christians - 3/30-13:58".<o> Second, you may have heard this before but "paragraph breaks are your friend" Use the < p > and remove the spaces.<p>Okay, third - wow, length. I made my browser full screen and your post was the full height and more.<p>Okay, I admire that you state flat out that it's probably a wrong theory and you're just trying to get some discussion going. That's what I try with most of my crackpot theories here, too.<p>I'm not comfortable with the term ALT. Not because of the capslock. The Darlton has stated "It's not an alternate reality". Now, the Darlton lie to us all the time. but I'd prefer to restrict my theorizing to not including alternate realities and two-of-everything.<p>Even though they used an anagram for "reincarnation" for a business name, I'm not sure what that has to do with Lost anyway.<p>As I've mentioned plenty of times, I'm always the last Lost fan to embrace new directions. Theories about nanobyte smoke defense systems, introducing guys who get unstuck in time, a button that saves the world, Jacob and Mr. Mib? Every step of the journey I've felt like it was one more step too far into the twilight zone and a dozen more questions added to a show that already had plenty of weird and plenty of questions.<p>Is it possible that the note JJ handed to The Darlton just read "it just keeps getting weirder and weirder"?<p>I don't have answers or a counter-theory to yours. The idea of alternate versions of the same characters meeting Mirror Mirror style, the idea that there are 23 alternate Jack's, then your tossing in the non sequitur concept "maybe the show is set in 2014 and everything is a flashback"? I think you have an idea for a 650 page science fiction novel and some ideas way too complicated and complex to be played out over six more episodes of Lost, especially at the pace it's moving.<p>My old idea was that if Smokey can't move over water, Jacob can leave the island and Christian was seen in Jack's hospital and on the freighter, then maybe Jacob or a third Island entity was posing as Christian. But all the stuff with Hurley and Miles as Melinda and Eli has me considering the existence of Ghosts with no other explanation than "they're ghosts." Even Pa mentioned that Hospital Christian might be GhostyChristian. A Ghost Christian and a Mibby posing as Christian are all the two Christians I need.<p>I like to try cobbling together theories based on what we know and trying to fit the pieces together. You seem to have pieces here from two or three different puzzles. Well, did you ever take old spare parts from model kits and put them together to see what kind of spaceship you could make? I tried that a few times and enjoyed the results. It was fun.<p>The new Playboy had a interesting article about the therapeutic use of various psychedelic sacraments. Me, I stopped doing that over thirty years ago, otherwise I'd ask what you were using when you wrote that piece.<p>Bill, sorry I haven't sounded too positive here. Wish I could say "Oh I liked this bit, I agree with this part, I find this intriguing". Your piece pretty much made my head spin and think "What the? What's he on about?" But I don't want you to think of anything I said as overly negative, either. I like far out theories, I like psychedelic divergences, I like creative theorizing and, as I call it, talking the pieces of the puzzle of Lost and trying to see how they fit together. Yours felt like you had some of the pieces face down and some of the straight edged border pieces in the middle. But I certainly can't fault you for creativity and originality.<p>Go, write that novel. Peace.

    "flashback (this time in a flash sideways)"

    by VikkiMarsdale

    Um, no. This episodes side-flashes picked up from the cliffhanger from LA X with the Kwons stopped by customs over the package of money and then proceeded chronologically forward from there.<p>I can see three possible reasons you might think this was a flashback episode, V'Shael, let me know if I'm close.<p>Darlton said "no more flashbacks this season" but obviously nearly all of the Richard Alpert episode as a flashback,so that's a lie.<p>2 The Island stuff is set in 2007 and all of the sideways flashes are set in 2004, so therefore they are all flashbacks.<p>3 or, because Keamy was killed in the Sayid sideflash episode, in events recapped off screen here, and those events occur at the same time, it seems that seeing Keamy alive in Jin's story after we saw him killed in Sayids story makes his appearances here a flashback rather than a retelling of the same events from a different POV.<p>But that wold suggest that you think that all of the sideflash stories are taking place in chronological order. that the Kate story took place after the LA X story - which I think is true, then everything in the Locke episode, the Jack episode, the Sayid episode and the Ben episode happened, not simultaneously in the days following LA X but one, after the other. I do not think this is correct. To cite one example, Locke was a substitute teacher, they usually only tay with a class for a few days until the regular teacher returns. Locke is assigned to a school in episode 6.3 The Substitute and is still at the same school in 6.6 Dr. Linus. If all of the events of episodes 4 and 5 had to take place between 3 and 6, then the substitute teacher would have been there for some time. I think most of the events of The Substitute and Dr. Linus could have happened on the same day(s). Same with Sundown (Sayid kills Keamy and Omar) and The Package (Jin hears Sayid kill Keamy and Omar. If I wanted to be sarcastic I'd ask if you thought that was a flashback to the previous time Sayid killed them. but I think I understand what you mean: that we saw a live Keamy and Omar even though they died in a previous episode. But relating the same events from different points of view is a common storytelling device, and with all due respect, I don't think that technically it is a "flashback". Of course, your opinion may differ.

  • March 31, 2010, 4:03 a.m. CST

    @VikkiMarsdale

    by V'Shael

    You are correct, in that we're splitting semantic hairs over whether I choose to call it a flashback and you don't.<br />However, I do think that the flash-sideways have been taking place chronologically.<br />The counter-example you cite, concerning Locke as a substitute, is invalid IMO. Locke was looking for work. Not 3 days work, or a weeks work. So I don't buy your "a few days" rationale. He could have been substituting for someone on maternity leave, for example. I never got the impression he was there for a few days only. I got the impression that he was going to be there for a while.<br />

    V'shael - semantic hares

    by VikkiMarsdale

    Except that in this case the Package does not entirely take place after Sundown. The Kwon story picks up at the airport with the LA X cliff hanger and the scene where he hears the gunshots runs parallel to the Sayid story.<p>I agree. The Substitute and Dr. Linus could have happened on the one day Locke was at that school, or he might have been there for a month, or subbing in different classes. That example proves nothing. And the events in Sawyers ep had to happen after What Kate does because in WKD she wasn't yet caught by Officer Ford, so that's a point in favor of them being chronological.<p>But the term 'splitting semantic hairs' implies "different name for the same thing".<p>Showing the same chain of events from different points of view (Sayid kills Keamy and Omar, Jin hears the gunshots) is a different storytelling device than a conventional "flashback".<p>I might call Pulp Fiction" non chronological story-telling". You might say that most of that movie was flashbacks. I dunno, maybe we'd both be right.<p>But The Package told Sun & Jin's story in a direct, chronological and consecutive manner. At no point did they look back as something that happened previously to them. Instead the story Intersected with the Sayid episode. Keamy taking Jin to the restaurant happened before Sayid killed Keamy. But the stuff at Nadia's house happened before Keamy got to Sun's hotel room. But the Kwon's being released at the airport happened before the taxi arrived and Nadia's. They were two stories happening during the same time frames, unless you consider both episodes to be flashbacks to each other. Just doesn't fit my definition of a flashback.<p>I should just flashback to when I read the first three words of your reply, "you are correct" and leave it there. Instead I'm going to hit Post.

    The man who was born too much wrote: "guess I should have typed ***SARCASM*** in my post.... huh Kitten??? it was a SEMI-JOKE DUMFUK!!!if u dont likey the ladies---I DONT CARE OK!!! but, in my defense-- u COMPLAINING of the ladies on Lost DOES make a REAL MAN *****SARCASM****** WONDER brotha.... sheesh. everything ook now honey???"<p>See you're still diggin that '90s leet" language, that's always fun. See you're still having trouble with your sticky capslock key. See you still can't spell fuck. And not that it's any of your business, but my ladies and I likey each other just fine.<p>So let's see, I posted that I was glad Lost finally had some sexy women in the cast this year, like Ilana, Zoe, Helen and Isabella. Somehow you decided the proper response to that would be to call me gay. I replied offering you a chance to step away from that tactic. Your choice is do defend it as "sarcasm" and a "semi joke". Meaning that you only half meant it. No, sorry, that doesn't make it ook, monkey boy.<p>Although I did enjoy this post from you, because I do know how to diagram a sentence. You say my complaining about (and I wasn't, I was praising) the women of Lost makes a real man [sarcasm] wonder. Now that's good, you're calling yourself a real man but pointing out that you're being sarcastic about it. Very modest and self effecing. Oops, typo. I meant to write "self effacing". I think "self effecing" would mean you shit on yourself. I'll just leave it like that, ook?<p>By the way, calling you a fuckstick was not an insult. It's just another word for penis. You don't mind being called a slang term for penis, do you? Over 48% of the people in the world have one. It's like being called a dink, a dick, a prick or a schmuck. Ook?<p>Now you being called "the man who was born to much" - that's an insult. How is it even possible to be born to much? Simple: One too many times. If you had only been born one less time, the world - and your family's lives, and those of everyone you've ever come in contact with - would have been so much better off. See, that's how you construct an insult, you homophobic little asswiper.<p>Come on,deny that one. Brag to the internet about how you never wipe your ass, you shit-slinging little monkey.

    Re: Damon's tweet

    by Dr. Ironfist

    It could be because sometime during V, the actress who played Juliet said, "Don't tell me what I can't do." Yes, that happened. <P>Also, Damon tweeted, "A week from now, the conversation will be different." One would imagine he is getting people complaining about how the alt timeline doesn't seem to mean anything, and that this would change during the Desmond episode. <P>I, however, think the conversation he will have with ABC will be different, where he will ream them for showing that V countdown clock during LOST and he will compel them to never do that again to his baby. Nobody puts Baby in a corner. <P>Of course, they only did that because it was the first episode of V after a hiatus. Still, the conversation will be different...

    The Aphasia

    by _Maltheus_

    Someone probably noted this earlier, but it was quite clear that the reason for the aphasia was tied to the fact that she couldn't speak English in the flashes. I'm not sure if that is relevant to the meaning of the flashes (realities converging, as I once heard suggested), or if it's just "clever" storytelling, but either way, it feels like a waste of time.<br /><br />I was one of the few here who wasn't a big fan of the S3 finale because nothing really happened (we knew Charlie was gonna die all season and that Penny was heading to the island), aside from the gimmick of the flash forwards. It was a shocking moment, that didn't advance the story. I feel like we're being set up for the same thing here. Everyone will go "wow" and then look back and realize that all we got was surprise, but very little substance. I hope I'm wrong though.<br /><br />Oh yeah, thanks for the review V'Shael!

    Season 6

    by snaps_provolone

    Well....this season has definitely been interesting. I remain 100% confident that it all will tie together beautifully, and the flash-sideways are going to be very important..... However.... I'm also in the camp of people who are getting pissed with this season. It's not as if it's a "bad" season, it's just....a lot of stalling. Think about it: SEASON 6 ON-ISLAND CURRENT STORY: -The Smoke Monster is recruiting people to get him off the island -Jacob is communicating with Hurley to recruit people and protect the island ....and, well.....that's kind of been it. I can write a bunch of little things, but they all can be summarized with those 2 sentences. We're 10 episodes in, and all we've been doing is spending time with both camps, just kind of waitin' 'er out. No deaths, no giant revalations, nothing. Just kind of dancing around the inevitable: A confrontation. In terms of the flash-sideways, I do enjoy them. I've also recognized that we're probably done with seeing the new ones (all that's left is Hurley, and maybe Desmond). At first, I liked the idea of seeing how all these characters' lives would've been different if the plane hadn't crashed. The idea of seeing a life go right when it could've gone left is interesting. But I agree they've gotten repetetive, even if the concept remains interesting. As I said before, I still maintain these are all very much going to lead to something big. There's no way Lindelof & Cuse are just going to say, "Well, we have to kill some time...I know! Let's just tell a what if? story that won't go anywhere!" No way they're that dumb. The one thing that I've noticed about this season, more than the others, is the dialogue and interaction has gotten a little too hokey. In past seasons, even though we complained about it, stale scenes involved genuine character interaction (Sawyer stealing the meds, Hurley & co. fixing the car, etc.) Those scenes were at least characters talking in normal dialogue. Now, every conversation is extremeley plot-driven, and a bit over-the-top. We've gone from Locke & Jack quietly interacting in the Hatch, to a cloaked-Japanese guy using an interpreter in a building we haven't seen in 5 seasons? Come one now. It feels more like the dialogue is solely there to move the plot forward, rather than simply interaction. I don't know if that makes any sense, but hopefully you see my point. If I hear "Why are you telling me this?" one more time, my head will explode. But I still love the show, and I know the ending won't disappoint. Heads will role, big things are about to happen, and I remain optimistic that the season will be regarded at a higher level when all is said and done..........we just have to GET there....

    Lost is Like a Poem

    by kevinwillis.net

    Or a work of art. It's meant to be enjoyed for how it is constructed, for the ingenious rhymes and recurring themes and how light and shadow make objects out of negative spaces. <br /><br />That's why it works best watching in sequence, preferable 5 or 8 episodes at a time. It's a leviathan, like Paradise Lost (or the Stand), best experienced with as little interruption as possible.<br /><br />That's why the "all we got was surprise, but very little substance" doesn't bother me at all. It's like admiring beautiful architecture. Story? What story? It's a beautiful cathedral! That's what has me hypnotized. <br /><br />When I reflect on what a monumental achievement Lost has been--I would never have imagined such for a serial television show--I'm just blown away. It would be hard for anything to disappoint me now.<br /><br />Although I still really favor the "Patrick Duffy getting out of the shower" end to the show. At least put it as an extra on the DVD!<br /><br />And, thanks again, Maltheus.

    Coughlins, It's a Tone Poem

    by kevinwillis.net

    Not a linear plot type of story. In the tone poem, characters loop and rhyme. Locke is the man of faith, Jack the man of science. Then Locke loses faith and then Jack becomes faithful. Jacob seems good then bad, MIB seems bad then good. Locke follows, Ben leads, then Locke leads and Ben follows. Kate stays then goes, incites and then resists the things she incited. And so did Juliette. <br /><br />The Island cures cancer, then causes cancer. It's a Yin/Yang, snake eating it's tail, palindrome form of poetry. Ben knew everything, now he knows nothing. <br /><br />Just chill and let the experience of it wash over you.

    by D.Vader

    David19- the Flash Sideways are when Smokey leaves the Island

    by D.Vader

    My friend, immediately after this episode ended, said "So the Flash Sideways are what happened when Smokey leaves the Island, huh." <p> Which makes sense, from a certain pov, considering everyone says if he gets off, you'll lose everyone you've ever cared about, etc etc. As in, the present is erased completely.

    Some People Just NEVER Give Up

    by cymbalta4thedevil

    No matter how many times we point out that Darlton said Jacob has NEVER appeared as someone else, some of you keep assuming he has. Despite the fact he was still alive and in corporeal form during many of those appearances?<br /><br />No matter how many times MIB says he's been trapped on this Island and can't float off of it in smoke form, some of you are going to keep suggesting he was Christian in the Hospital or on the Freighter?<br /><br />I'm starting to think LOST Fans are suffering from X-Files Syndrome. You've been jerked around so many times that even when the show gives you explicitly stated answers in the final season, you don't believe them. Your theories have become more important to you than actually paying attention to the show itself.<br /><br />As irritating and trollish as Oliver Hague is, you have to grant him one thing. He pays attention to the show. He may dislike what's happening on it, but he's not closing his eyes and putting his fingers in his ears and saying LALALALALA anytime the show or the show's creators or another talkbacker points out things that contradict his pet theories.<br /><br />The rest of you wasted a fucking week arguing over whether or not The Black Rock and a Tidal Wave could knock over a Statue. It Can on LOST. It Did on LOST. Deal with it and Move On.

    Sun Obviously Not a Candidate: not a Kwon

    by Chowwander

    Because in FlashSideways, she is NOT a Kwon. Maybe a stupid theory. But I think Jin is the only Kwon candidate as a result. And I absolutely for several episodes have thought the LA X world is the one in which MIB is loose. But Jack's son, I predicted was a "once and future son" and maybe Jack and Kate have an island romance, she goes back to the real world, pregnant. And names the child David. But who knows. Desmond is obviously needed for the electromagnetic pockets. Maybe that is how they catch MIB. After all, what happened to Desmond after he switched the Hatch key? He showed up naked, ala Terminator, and so methinks he'd been bouncing around in time.

    McGooCain: On Ollie Hague

    by kevinwillis.net

    "Hopefully Ollie Hague won’t come over to this talkback to distract from all the fun and camaraderie, and yeah, the fighting too"<br /><br />If he does, I'll just add him to my list of blocked people using Maltheus's script, then I'll never see what he posts, and won't worry about it.<br /><br />That script is totally awesome. Which I may have mentioned before.<br /><br />That being said, my only problem with watching season 6 is that the week-to-week episode thing breaks up the rhythm. I look forward to being able to sit down and watch all of season 6, one after the other, over a couple of days. <br /><br />I originally got into Lost watching season 1-4 and the first part of season 5 all in a row. And I have just recently re-watched everything, including season 5, in a row. It's a great way to absorb the show, and when you do it that way, it comes across as epic, and I don't worry that Jack and Locke basically switch personalities, or that Eko and Locke switch personalities about the Swan hatch, or that Hurley never loses any weight. It's just epic. Like running across a 2000 year old Grecian sky-scraper emblazoned with the finest filigree. <br /><br />I also listened to all the Harry Potter novels on audio that way, over a period of a week-and-a-half, and enjoyed a similar effect. Some things are best enjoyed when you immerse yourself in them. I've frequently done the same thing with Cerebus the Aardvark and Lord of the Rings. I just jump in with both feet, and take big bites, and try and engage them completely as they are, not as I wish to complain about them being, and I usually have a great experience. Even if I've been through them several times before.

    Well in his defense, I think Ollie Plague actually watches the show AND refers to other sources. But I really don't want to defend him. Hahaha.<br /><br />I'm just trying to figure out when these talkbacks became a competition to come up with the least likely crackpot theory. When people start suggesting that Jacob and MIB are time or reality displaced versions of the same person, or that the numbers represent how many times each Candidate has been reincarnated, it's time to consider calling in Nurse Ratched and the guys in the white uniforms.<br /><br />KWON-42. Somebody do the math. How many Centuries ago would this thing have to have started for Kwon to be on their 42nd incarnation? Did Kwon-1 design Jacob's statue? Yeah, that's what happened.<br /><br /> And Jacob is Aaron. And MIB is Charlie Hume. And his Daddy Desmond has come back to the Island to spank him for accidentally turning himself into a Black Nanobot Smoke Monster and knocking himself and Aaron into Grandpa Widmore's experimental machine which turns you immortal and sends you back in time simultaneously during one of his and Aaron's playdates. Why Not?

    Does Widmore give a shit about Smokey?

    by Pizza The Hut

    Widmore's crew didn't seem to care much about killing UnLocke's team, or doing much to UnLocke when he paid a visit. They seem more concerned with the map and some shit Jin did back in the Dharma days. They're up to something having to do with Donkey Wheel / energy pocket, and need Desmond's help to do whatever. Getting rid of Smokey is probably not their primary objective, imo, maybe secondary, but who knows.

    "In one week, the conversation is going to change." I'm calling it right now. Damon's referring to an actual conversation that occurs in the show. Specifically, one between Alt James Ford and Alt Juliet. At some point during their meet cute, Juliet will suddenly start talking as if she was trapped under a pile of debris, about to die. We'll finally get to hear what Island Juliet was trying to say to Island Sawyer in her past moments, instead of the presumed bleed-through from Alt-verse. That could be cool.

    Yeah cymbalta, but LOST has *always* been like that

    by D.Vader

    Crackpot theories I mean. Even way back in Season 1, pple didn't want to believe tht Locke had been healed by the Island. I remember reading theories that Locke, whatever his accident was, had mentally convinced himself that he was disabled, and it took the plane crash to dislodge that thought from his head, as if his willpower was all that kept him from walking. <p> And Jacob and MiB as time-displaced entities, while I don't believe it, isn't that crazy considering all the time-traveling in the past, and bc of the Island's crazy nature. Remember when pple claimed Ben and Widmore were time travelers too? And the rules had something to do with killing someone in the past when they weren't supposed to die and whatnot? <p> Yeah a lot of it is ridiculous, but sometimes I enjoy reading what crazy new theory someone has come up with now. <p> BUT, on the Jacob appearing as someone else point- I didn't know the producers said he had never done that. I don't believe good Christian was ever Jacob. But I DO think there is something else that Locke saw, the bright white light, and I hope we get an answer there.

    KFP - Mighty Morphin

    by VikkiMarsdale

    Last week in the hold the smoke entered and formed a vaguely humanoid shaped pillar and I thought they were going to show the morph. Turned out to be a tease.<p>I don't know how expensive that particular CGI SFX stunt is. It was impressive in T@, just cute in that Michael Jackson Black and White video. a year later it was turning up in a local used car lot commercial. If they just show a waist up 3/4 view of NonLocke just standing still and talking or pointing for five seconds, then pixelate it, convert him to smoke and have it drift away, then reverse it so the smoke comes in and turns to Locke, then quick cut to whoever he's talking to with a reaction shot expression on their face, that would probably be do-able on the shows budget.<p>Someone in a previous talkback pointed out and listed examples of times when they could have shown Island Magick and didn't. The Island moving. "He vanished before my eyes" and so on. Seems like it's not a question of budget, though some of the Lost sfx have been sub-par, hand you that. It's more like they just don't want to turn the show into Sabrina and have the silly special effects distract from the drama. Or as someone else said, the best special effects are in your head, because that way you see exactly what you want to see.

    Did anyone notice the difference with Jin and Sun?

    by SithMenace

    In the flashbacks, Jin met Sun and the only way he could marry her was to go work for her father. In the sideways flashes, they're not married, and Keamy made it clear that Jin worked for Mr. Paik and started doing his daughter, then Mr. Paik found out. I don't know the signifigance, but it's an interesting difference.

    Theory

    by paburrows

    Widmore asked Jin about the electromagnetic pockets that he had signed off on on the map. Im wondering if the energy has somewhat the same effect of the sonar fences on MIB? Will it kill or further trap MIB. Or does Widmore want to use it to give others the same time/space jumping ability? Or to use it to connect the island with LA X?

  • March 31, 2010, 2:30 p.m. CST

    But if there's no candidates in the side world Coughlin

    by SithMenace

    it wouldn't really prove anything. For example, if there were candidates in the side world, we haven't found out about them, so the list could just as easily read Paik instead of Kwon. In the normal world we have seen the list, but they're married, so it says Kwon. <p>Although the fact that she was shot might mean something, since if there were candidates in the side world she technically wouldn't be able to get shot.

  • March 31, 2010, 2:33 p.m. CST

    Sort of Okay Episode.

    by 2LeggedFreak

    I understand people saying that not a lot is happening but conversely, as we move towards an endgame, the characters don't appear to be doing too much that is out and out ridiculous or time wasting. This means the likes of Jack (who isn't being an illogical twat to further the story) is coming across rather better.<P> <P> Agree it was obvious that Locke could have had the sonic fences down in a second - not sure what he was waiting for ?<P> <P> The Kwons story was difficult. Because we don't see some characters do anything meaningful for vast wedges of time its hard to re-engage with them. Jin being sidelined for so long made it seem odd that he should suddenly be so pivotal for Widmore.<P> <P> If they are simply not just being clever and the synchronicities between the two realities mean something then that is one decent thing from the episode.<P> <P> The other interesting aspect is that Jacob has previously talked of MIB being corruption loosed on the world but Widmore talks of a reality ceasing to exist. Makes for a confusing but interesting slew of possibilities.<P> <P> Quibbles :<P> <P> Keamy's teeth always bother me.<P> <P> Its Tom Mart Oh - not Tom Mate Oh ! Bloody Americans - That one annoys me only marginally less than exscape.<P> <P> Sayid soulless is a boring unentertaining fucker.<P>

    Paradox

    by david19

    I think the Alternate world is simply a result of the universe course correcting because when the bomb went off, it would have created a paradox. But its still not perfect. Something must be done to bring the two realities together or the universe will fall apart. Desmond is the key.

  • March 31, 2010, 2:38 p.m. CST

    You're right, sithmenace, it could mean nothing. But

    by Coughlins Laws

    you would have to think they're showing us some kind of significance and leaving us clues in this flash-sideways that we can look back on later and say, "Oh, yeah! X makes sense now..." Who knows I choose to stay out of most of the speculation but it just seems to me that they weren't just showing us random events. They seem to have to be tied together somehow...

  • March 31, 2010, 2:42 p.m. CST

    As far as you, McGoo, choose to live your life with your

    by Coughlins Laws

    head in the sand. I don't care. You seem to lack the ability of critical thinking. Not everything is static and in a vacuum. Sometimes you have to read between the lines. You see, there's a reason that the vast majority of Americans are against this Health Care Boondoggle and are mad that the Democrat Majority and this President just "spit in the face" of the American people by passing this, even though poll after poll for almost a year showed that the majority of Americans DID NOT WANT IT...

    Just a thought...

    by Equinity

    ...in the flash sideways, every time one of candidates looks into the mirror e.g. Jack in LAX, Sun in latest episode, they seem to experiencing something. Déjà vu possibly? Well it got me thinking… what if the flash sideways is the original version of events, as it has always been since day 1. What if the events on the island are a lost version of reality? What if the flash sideways world ends with them discovering this lost world or maybe even generating a cataclysmic event that creates this lost reality (not the other way round). Maybe LOST has always been about what could have happened to us but was lost through the choices we made.

  • March 31, 2010, 2:54 p.m. CST

    Coughlin, I agree

    by SithMenace

    But I've been chalking the differences in their lives up to the butterfly effect. But it doesn't really make sense because things would have evolved radically different with just minor changes in their lives. So I think what it's going to end up being is fate. People have free will and can do things differently, but their lives are still going to take the same basic paths. <p>Maybe the choices we make are going to be similar regardless of what situation we're in, so the consequences of our actions force us to repeat our decisions. For example, in the flash sideways Sayid tries to forget his past, but because of who he is, his past finds him and he's forced to kill again. I think part of the message is that we are responsible for our fate, even though our fate is a consequence of our individual nature. Plus maybe I'm just talking out of my ass.

    by HoboCode

    Your claim that $500 billion is going to be cut from Medicare and that our elderly will die prematurely from it is a gross misrepresentation of the facts and unabashed fear mongering.<p> That $500 billion is a cut in GROWTH of spending. It would cut inefficiencies and strengthen the core services of Medicare. Now there might be payment adjustments, meaning medical workers providing for the elderly may not see continued salary increases but their services would not be reduced. Making it more efficient. You know? CONSERVATIVE stuff?<p> It will also cut out the benefits that go beyond traditional Medicare like Medicare "Advantage" that are nothing more than money grabs for unscrupulous insurance companies who would have probably denied seniors certain benefits for pre-existing conditions anyway. Tu take your ignorant, misleading rhetoric to your next teabagging milita meeting. Kay?

    Pockets of energy

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    think we will be heading back to the wheel, down the well. <p> Still hoping that its thought that using the energy of the island it can destroy Smokey, destroy the evil. What I think they will find out is that it will destroy this reality and create a new one. Jack being the one to cause it to happen . <p> Widmore, agree with others, can't be trusted, for him I think he just wants to control the island. <p>

    by DougMcKenzie

    by paburrows

    Aren't most of the actors who play Klingons darker skinned? I know that Worf was African American. How could Keemy play a Klingon? Again not trying to be racist, just a stupid question.

    I'm sure there's more than a couple light-skinned actors that have done so...Christopher Lloyd comes to mind. I imagine it's all about their build and a good make-up team.

    I saw that and one on the ABC Advisory Panel. But Im a bit leary about that. I know that Cafe Press said that Darlton/ABC is allowing fans to create their own Lost products and make money off of them. But just in case I don't want to paint a target on my back for the ABC lawyers. Yours and the Desmond cartoon in the middle are the best ones there. I checked about 5 pages worth.

  • Is both a creation and destruction myth. Not just for souls or people or the world ..for the universe. There are two sides..one light and one dark. Good and evil in assignment are irrelevant. Religious systems, belief systems, science systems all irrelevant. <br><br> It just is ...what it is. Metaphor for experience. Entropy and the other thing. Chaos and the other thing... Contraction...and the other thing.<br><br> When I wrote the 'bloody finger post' a long time ago, in a talk back far far away, it was a two dimensional representation of the LOST game-board; an 8 drawn large on a piece of paper. One circle has a 'plus' sign in the middle, and one circle has 'minus' sign in the middle. Positive and Negative states of the same existence in opposition; two sides..one light and one dark..Some (I am lookin at you Cheif) forgot the instruction to fold the paper in half so that there were two circles, two realities, on top of each other occupying the same space..with the island as junction point orbiting in and out of each reality.<br><br> Try imagining it this way. Temporally. On a piece of 8x11 paper you draw one circle as big as you can. Inside of that circle you draw another as close as you can to the other with out them touching. One circle rotates clockwise, one counter-clockwise. These are the directions of universal time. But in each existence, reality, whatever dude, people experience the flow, the passing of time, the same. Forward. Most of the major events in History occur (Korean War.."Uh, there's no such thing) in each and all..There is the same Human progress of a kind.. It is all remarkably similar. Unless you cross the void. The space in between. That is existence on the island and a backward talking Walt.<br><br> So, you have a circle within a circle. Now do this. Imagine, or if you are Cheif prick your finger again..and draw a small 8 where the intersect of the 8 resides in the small space in between the contra-rotating circles. The Island 'moves' along the course of that 8. Balloon Knot theory. It is a Junction, but it also a Switch.<br><br> So, back to the Map.. I think, some think, that Dharma-verse and Other-verse are the same. I think not. That some believe that Ann Arbor in Dharma-verse is where it is in Other-verse. I think not. In a simultaneous reality of counter flowing time.. imagine this world as such. One where the continents drifted apart. One where the continents are drifting together. An existence where the Universe is expanding with plenty of time to do things, I don't know, have a picnic. ANd, one where the Universe is coming to an end. Soon. Imagine if the Dharma-verse world looks like this: <br><br> http://tinyurl.com/ycn5lkl <br><br> And 'time' is running out for one of the sides.. Light or Dark. The scale is creaking towards one side.<br><br> Well, that was what I was thinkin ..cymbalta won't like this kind of irrational thinking ..but I had fun doin it. so. pfffft.<br><br> I lurv this show and 84.2% of the talk backers here. How did no one mention that 8'42' was Jin's hotel room ...ah, what the hell.

    Keamy and the watch

    by VikkiMarsdale

    On second view... The Watch Jin was supposed to deliver has been a Lost plot element since what, season one? We finally get resolution: Mr. Paik meant Jin to deliver it as a gift to the hitman he hired to kill him. That's cold.<p>The funny comes from Durand playing Keamy as Walken. You know, Walken in Pulp Fiction and the watch story. Like Paik was telling him "Here take this watch and..." well, you know. Struck me as funny.<p>Good: Sun not falling for NonLocke's bull and running from her. Bad: her raising her arm to block when she's supposedly hitting her head on the tree hard enough to knock herself out. If you can't do the stunt convincingly, just cut away. Great: Sun's entire rant to Richard. Classic: Wet completely emotionally shut down Sayid face to face with stoned out of his gourd Desmond. Those were both me in the late '70s.<p>Awesome entertainment center: Room 23. Wall mounted wide screen and what a sound system!<p>I saw Mystery, Alaska years ago but don't remember much other than that I liked it. So Martin Keamy is really my first experience with noticing Kevin Durand. After the way he capped Alex I don't know if I can ever not see him as Keamy. I don't know which of the talkback images seems weirder: Keamy as a stand up comic or Keamy as a Klingon.

    Klingons

    by VikkiMarsdale

    Klingon's on Star Trek (the original series) usually had Ming the Merciless mustaches and were given a Mongolian appearance since at that time the big bad was "Red China". Although they were played by actors of various ethnicities. I think the first Star Trek movie introduced the brown Klingons with ridged brows. Again, Christopher Lloyd, David Warner, Michael Dorn as Worf - various ethnicities though usually made up brown.<p>DS9 address the question of how the ridged Klingons "took over" from the earlier species. Worf's reply was "It is something we do not talk about." and that was accepted. Trekkies know better than to go all mitochlorian with the details. But when so many fans hated Enterprise tptb on that show, as an fu to the critical fans, went ahead and gave the answer: a plague would have wiped out the entire Klingon population if they weren't radically genetically redesigned to be resistant.<p>So, sure, if JJ wants Klingons in one of his Trek movies, Keamy would be possible.<p>But Asihoallives ain't gonna like it... 8)

  • April 1, 2010, 1:54 a.m. CST

    @Vikki ...and here is the rub about the Watch..

    by MacFaux

    Was Jin supposed to get whacked in both realities? Was the watch the same 'totem'? Was Paik gonna have his son-in-law done in the first go around...and if so who was supposed to do it? still Keamey? wooo-woooo-woooo.."ahhhh, what's reallly gonna blow your mind later on is would you still have broken the vase if I hadn't said anything"<br><br> Mind-bendy awesome fun.

    by ToughGuyRizzo

    Good point about the Whidmore gang not killing FLockes gang. <br><br> Just wonder who killed the rest of Ajiras survivors then. <br><br> Just sayin cause if Whidmores team had the chance to take out MIB's army and not cripple them, why not kill them? Makes you think they left Ajiira's survivors alive. <br><br> I slo-moed my dvr last week and saw no gunshot wounds on the Ajira ppl. If MIB killed them, he would have had to take a boat. <br><br> So....who knows wtf is up?

    Looking forward to the Des episode next week.

    by TheManWhoCan

    It seems Jim Robinson is going to force Desmond into controlling his time jumping abilities, instead of just skipping back and forward against his will like he was in the Flashes before your eyes, The Constant and The Variable episodes. For what purpose? To stop Locke from getting off the island most likely. But how time travel and (hopefully) reality sliding can help Jacobs cause will be very interesting to see.<br> Its funny how all 3 groups of people on the island are against Locke now and yet are still against each other. Even Lockes “people” are just biding there time. Only Sayid is helping Locke out. Claires too nuts! Sawyer and Kate are on their own buzz and lets face it Cindy, the kids and the rest of the Temple turncoats are so expendable it hurts!.

    I was hugely annoyed with Sun this episode

    by Maniaq

    despite the nice shot of her cans<br /><br />actually she's pretty much always annoyed me<br /><br />quick lesson - Aphasia is when you lose language COMPLETELY, not just one particular language - as a doctor Jack should'a damn well known better - it is NOT "usually temporary" - THERE IS NO KNOWN TREATMENT. The Cognitive Scientist in me tells me this is something similar, but not Aphasia - it's important to note that English was a language Sun only recently acquired...<br /><br />when you reach "maturity" - at around 12 on average - your brain undergoes a change in what's called "plasticity" - any language you acquire BEFORE this has happened, you will speak it like a native, but you learn the language AFTER you've hit puberty and you will ALWAYS have an accent. this is because you are actually accessing different parts of your brain in processing your new language once that "plasticity" is gone - you THINK in your "native" language and then TRANSLATE... Jack was right about one thing - Aphasics have really only lost (permanently) the CONNECTION to their language centres, so they can still read or write, for example, even though they can't speak, because the connection to the visual centres or motor cortex is still intact<br /><br />but the damage is PERMANENT<br /><br />I used to know someone who can write ok but not read - football injury - ask him to read back what he just wrote and he can't do it. Ask him to TRACE what he just wrote with his finger and he gets it.<br /><br />anyway, I digress...<br /><br />point bein noname may have temporarily taken away Sun's English but if it's because of the bump on the head, then it SHOULD NOT come back to her<br /><br />then again, this is a Magical island that heals people...<br /><br />what bothered me the most about Sun is that Darlton seem to have broken their own "rules" (not the first time, I know) with this whole bit. Didn't they say, once upon a time, that subtitles were only supposed to be used when the CHARACTERS on screen actually understood what was being said - far as I know they have not broken this rule before - but the Kwons in particular (most recently Dogen) have spoken a LOT of dialogue that was NOT subtitled - specifically when the other characters did NOT know what they were saying - the reason being IIRC that Darlton wanted to put us, the audience, their fans, in the shoes of the poor characters not understanding a damn word that was being said<br /><br />-and yet...<br /><br />did we really need to know what all that jibber jabber actually MEANT? if there was ever a time to use your above device, guys, wasn't THIS the perfect time to have someone screaming bloody murder at everyone in a foreign language and NOT have it subtitled - and STILL get the point across?

    So what happens if cork sinks in the bottle?

    by Apollonia

    I wonder, if the island = cork which holds the evil from spreading in the world, then when the island sinks in the water all evil will come out. Right? However, in the flash side-ways where the island did sank, the world seems quite normal... so what does this mean? a) is Jacob lying about the island and MIB? or b) it turns out Jacob is actually right on his beliefs about people, and free will, and choosing to be good or evil on their own. Meaning: Evil spread to the world but people confronted it and now they continue their lives. Nevertheless, if it's (b) the answer, then why Jacob keeps MIB on the island? If he wants to prove him that people are good why he has to bring people to the island instead of setting MIB free in the first place? Doesn't he really believe what he says about people and he has doubts? Moreover, Jacob is all talking about "free will" but I don't see him letting things go on their own... I mean we saw him manipulating all losties' lives in the past and we hear him say bringing people to the island... so where's free will to that?

    interesting topic there with the whole language thing. one thing popped out to me, the "thinking in your native tongue" comment. as much as i dislike it, i'm french (canadian french)...i was raised french, went to french schools, we speak it at home. but english has always been in my life as well, i have no accent when speaking it, many people tend to be shocked when they hear me speak french if they didnt know. i'm also much more comfortable using english and prefer it and outside of family i dont use french unless someone speaks it to me first. but i have to say despite french being my native tongue, i always use english for things like notes i may leave for people, i even use it online. i speak french to my brother but whenever we speak online, whether its chatting or emails, we use english. and to come back to your point, i actually think in english as well. so am i just weird? lol

I mean as long as he can remain anonymous and hidden behind the intertubes... but.. well..and then I remembered bullies are obsessive compulsive, can't help their need to, can't survive without a target on to whom they can project their OWN inadequacy and incompetence allll the while puttin the blame back on the target for their own failings in life... <br><br> Welll... anyway. Then I remembered... I remembered: <br><br> "audistis quia dictum est oculum pro oculo et dentem pro dente, ego autem dico vobis non resistere malo sed si quis te percusserit in dextera maxilla tua praebe illi et alteram..." <br><br> And so that is what I will do. If he want's my coat I will give it to him. If he demands I walk a mile, I will walk two. I will meet evil with good. I will offer love when he offers hate... Because, I am blessed with the best God in the league. And my crazy God always comes to play. <br><br> So, thank you .um. Rarryl Devok... nothin but love. Nothin but love, brother.

    by kevinwillis.net

    Kate's gone after Jack *and* gone after Sawyer. But she never went after Hurley, who is the best human being on the island.<br /><br />She's a shallow little tart, that's why I don't care for her. Juliette just always looked weird to me. Shannon was too shallow, Ana Lucia always too angry. Yet, for some reason, I really dug 70s Eloise and 50s Eloise. Both of 'em. And I kinda like Charlotte.

Well, if he's trying to be a good guy, he's very bad at it.<p>Imagine a '60s sit-com with either Tim Conway or Tommy Smothers as a genie who screws up every wish he tried to fulfill. The old deal with the devil bit where you have to be careful what you ask for, except here it's not the genies fault, he's just a screw-up.<p>Mib tells Sun "I would never make you do anything you don't want to do." Well, I'm almost certain that when Bram poured himself out his little gray ash circle of protection that was a pretty clear "I don;t want you to kill me" request, and yet Mib clearly interpreted it as a "Drop the roof on me and death me up" request.<p>So if Mr. Mib isn't "bad" as in evil he certainly is "bad" as in inept. Though the way O'Quinn plays him he's also "bad" in the funky "bad means cool" way (as opposed to the campy "so bad it's good" way).

    Not discussing Pa's spoilers

    by VikkiMarsdale

    except to say I was surprised to see him do that. I thought Room 23 was meant to be the troll free zone where spoilers were kept in a magic box.<p>For anyone afraid to even glance that way with their peripheral vision, it really wasn't much of anything we didn't already "kinda" know. Still, lets not see much more of that, I hope.

    No spoilers please!

    by Dapper Swindler

    No spoilers, no spoilers surrounded by the word spoilers, no impressions ir reactions to spoilers, no theories based around spoilers.

  • April 1, 2010, 3:02 p.m. CST

    Also no joke spoilers

    by Dapper Swindler

    Such as "spoiler! hurley is still fat" Because it dillutes the meaning of the spoiler tag that may cause us to read a real spoiler thinking its a joke. Also, they are not funny.

    free choice...

    by maxwell's hammer

    There seems to be a set of rules concerning who gets to make choices on their own and who doesn't. I have no idea what those rules are, but MIB pretty blatently killed Eko, Nikki, Paulo, the Pilot, Bram, etc, but is very specific in allowing the various candidates to act on their own. He manipulates them, to be sure, but he hasn't hurt any of them.<BR> <BR> The game seems to be: MIB and Jacob select some players (a la Job) then put them through hell and see how they react. Jacob thinks they'll remain 'good' and do the right thing. MIB thinks people are inherently bad and that he can get them to do whatever he wants them to. The catch is, they have to willingly do those things and can't be forced.<BR> <BR> See also: Ben getting Jack to perform the surgery; getting Juliet to stay as an Other; Locke getting Sawyer to kill his dad; etc...

    (very) Thinly veiled death threat

    by VikkiMarsdale

    NonLocke to Sun: "Those people were confused. They were lied to. I didn't want to hurt them. Any one of them could have chosen to come with me. And I'm giving you that choice, Sun... right now."<p>Whoa, sounds like a very thinly veiled death threat to me. "I gave them a choice, they said no, I kilt 'em. I'm giving you the same choice." No wonder she ran like a squirrel straight into a tree branch.<br />Of course if Mib needs a Kwon but doesn't now which one he couldn't take her by force or kill her; she might be the one, and if not he'll need her to get Jin.<br />

    What exactly is Jack turning into?

    by VikkiMarsdale

    Six years ago Lost was praised for having an exceptionally racially and ethnically diverse cast of characters. One point singled out was that they depicted an Iraqi soldier (at a time we were at war with Iraq) as someone who wasn't necessarily a soulless monster bad guy. Six years later and, surprisingly, look what Sayid's turning nto: a soulless monster on the Island and someone who can't escape his past as a killing machine even in the LA 10 divergent reality stream.<p>But after his experience at The Lighthouse, exactly what is Jack turning into?<p>NonLocke (to Sun): "I promised you I would reunite you two... he's with my people, back at my camp across the island. I can take you to him right now. I'm asking you. Please. Come with me." [Reaches his hand out, offers it to Sun, she runs away]<p>Jack (to Sun): "Do you trust me?" (they nod) "Sun, come with us and I'll help you find Jin. I'll get you both onto that plane and as far away from this Island as possible, I promise." (reaches out his hand, offers it to Sun, she takes it.)<p>NonLocke and Jack are both pretty free with making the same promises and the same moves. Why am I finding that creepy?<p><p>By the way, remember when Sawyer told Kate they'd take the sub and we discussed the condition of that plane? Smashed cockpit windows, nose in the trees, wheels half buried in sand, vines in the turbines, components strewn on the ground. The general consensus was that plane ain't goin' nowhere. Are both MIB and Jack making promises they can't keep?<br />

  • April 1, 2010, 3:30 p.m. CST

    the plane

    by maxwell's hammer

    Jack hasn't seen the plane and its unflyable condition. He's just giving everybody a goal to work toward to keep them alive. Locke has seen the plane, and knows damn well it aint going anywhere.

    Did anyone else realize how awesome it is

    by Dapper Swindler

    That after years of bizarre speculation about what the smoke monster is, everything from nanomachines to an alien beast, that it turned out to be something so awesomely simple? Just a guy. I can’t even recall any previous theory that suggested this – I guess “security system” threw us off. I remember one theory I read, several pages, about how the smoke monster was light from a submarine searching for the wreckage of Oceanic 815 in the real world where the island did not exist – and this light was reflected to appear like black smoke in the dimension where the island does exist … something like that. <p> I love how every answer on this show has always been something so extremely simple yet totally unexpected.

    How is it that Ben can summon Smokey?

    by Pizza The Hut

    ...by pulling a plug and having water go down the drain under the Dharma camp? ...and how does Smokey know when this event happens (especially if he's not at home)? Does it live under the plugged water hole, under Dharma camp? Does a splash of water make it angry?? I thought it lived under the wall surrounding the temple. LOL, I give up.

  • April 1, 2010, 3:58 p.m. CST

    i don't know if 'simple' is the right word...

    by maxwell's hammer

    ...but pair Unexpected with Obvious in Hingsight works pretty well.

    so The Wid ISN'T there to destroy Smokey?

    by Maniaq

    seems like he on some other kind of mission - something to do with geophysics and maybe all that research he paid Danny Boy to do.. <br /><br />but then he KNEW there was a War coming and yet somehow he seemed to CAUSE it, without meaning to - or at least that was the way it played out?<br /><br />does his mission have anything to do with the Casimir Effect? 15 bunny rabbits? possibly the same number of Food Drops? his great granddaddy Whitfield's journal?<br /><br />also, does ALT-Keamy have anything to do with ALT-Wid? Is it safe to assume he's still a big industrial player? He was doing a job for ALT-Paik - is ALT-Paik in bed with ALT-Wid?<br /><br />what about ALT-Avellino - I guess ALT-Ben doesn't want him dead, but is his connection to everything less... tenuous this go-round? and the ALT-Economist - does he have anything to do with anything??<br /><br />did he EVER?

    In my defence

    by paburrows

    I was actually just trying to respond to a few questions that were asked and do it in a way for those who didn't want to be spoiled to not be. This is actually something thats been done on this site by many individuals on many occations. As Vikki would say at by planetran_fan on Apr 1st, 2010 at 12:50:31 PM asked "Is Farady done?" I responded to his question. Earlyer a number of individuals were speculating about weither Paik wanted Jin dead on the first go round. I used that opportunity to speculate about another character who is coming back. I did my best to hide it in all of those spoilers, I guess that I should have done more. I do my best to not reveal spoilers to those who don't want them. I'd say sorry to those who left, but Im not really in the mood because of the day Im having. Plus if they are really gone they aren't going to read it anyways. Im glad though that no one read it that didn't want to be spoiled though.

    Smoke Monster Toilet Drain Summons

    by maxwell's hammer

    Not that there is any specifically referenced evidence in an episode to prove this, but:<BR> <BR> It seems like MIB allowed Ben to think he could exert some control over the Smoke Monster to inflate his ego to make him more manipulatable. That whole bizarre ritual with the drain and the water feels, in hindsight, like some elaborate nonsense cooked up by MIB to make summoning the monster more momentous. I imagine MIB rolling his eyes and laughing his ass off every time Ben went into that little room for a summoning, saying to himself, "What an idiot. This dumbass will believe anything..." Then he evaporates into smoke and goes off to flash and crank and howl and scare the villagers.
