Abbey Road all over again, but this time it’s Locke.
Well now we have the Official Season 6 poster.
On it we see 12 characters who we know are either dead (Faraday, Eko etc) or possibly dead (Locke, Claire and Juliet). This surely means that all these characters will make important appearances in the last series but to what effect? On the poster we see Shannon and Boone and also Libby and all three weren’t really major characters in the main storyline of Lost. As these people have made it onto the poster they must have important roles to play in the series’ conclusion because there surely won’t be any small storylines in Season 6 (such as the Nicky and Paulo episode).
What roles could these characters possibly play? Does the fact they are on there mean that time has been reset as many people theorise and we will end up back on flight 815?
The next observation is that none of the very new characters from S5 are on the poster. Ilana, Bram, Jacob and Nemesis have all failed to make it onto the poster for whatever reason. Has our relationship with these 4 characters just been a brief one and they have already played their parts in the storyline? Personally I don’t think so but who knows. Once again, maybe the time line has reset and we end up at a time before we met these people?
The final observation is possibly the most important one, John Locke. As every other Lostie stands facing towards us, Locke stands in the centre, back turned and looking over his shoulder. This image of Locke is obviously completely intentional but once again the question is why? Is it as simple as he has finally turned his back on his fellow Losties and he is now the bad guy (or however you want to put it)? Whichever way you look at it though, you cannot deny it is very unnerving!
What are everybody else’s thoughts on this very interesting image?
