Lost s06e01/02 (LA-X)
Written 3rd February
I don’t really know where to start!!
The whole “man in black (mib) is the black smoke-monster” thing was kinda predictable thou.. here is a cool thing.. MIB/Smokey ?
Im woundering more what does MIB stand for? It seems Jakob is “free will” and the MIB is “something” else.. Almost as if they were “Destiny” and “Chance” ? Like life on earth is decided by Destiny at this moment, and has been for a while, but now when MIB is the one left, the “real world” will be decided by Chance.. (maybe refering to their conversation, and how bitter the MIB was on “Humans”)
And does this effect the “real world“, as in when Jacob got killed, the “new time line” is a result of how life would be if MIB ruled the island?
One thing that caught me was the conversation Jack had with Rose and the Stewardess. In Season 1, Jack is the one who says “Don’t worry“, now it’s Rose who says it. And in Season 1, the stewardess gives Jack two bottles, now she gives him one? Is that an important change? Or is it just random changes to show the audience that there’s been a change?
There was kinda cool that desmond was on the plane, but that’s really bothers me, couse WHY would he be on that plane, at that time, he was in the Hatch, pushing the button? Couse if juliet changed everything with the Hydrogen bomb, why are the island on the bottom of the sea? WITH dharmaville houses left? Did the island sink in the 70s? Or did something else (that we don’t know about yet) happen, that made it sink? (remember the flying fire arrows in the time-jumps?)
As Charlie said “Iv’e should have died“, is a deep “destiny” thing, couse when Charlie died he maneged to save Desmond, now when Jack helped him, Desmond couldn’t survive, and that why he disapeard in the plane?
The way everybody met in the “new timeline” are events that no person (in that reality) could have seen, Kate & Sawyer had a attractive force, without knowing what they “may” have went through, if they crashed. The same with Frogurt and Artz, they were the same caracters in “real life” as on the Island. Locke and Jack even had a attractive force, and their objects they were missing are very important (or somehow repeating subjects through the serie) Locks knives, the knives who he choosed wrong when Alpert visited him as a kid, the knifes that Locked killed boars with, (and Naomi ^^) Knifes and Locke are one!
Jack and his Dad, the coffin, are also a very important subject to the serie, as we could see “Christian” (or smokey) guide the Losties through their way theyv’e ended up now. The fact that Jacks dad is missing makes me think that all the Losties in the new timeline can’t escape their destiny, they all are gonna feel that something is wrong sooner or later! (charlie is going to die, nomatter what he does). Jack may be finding his dad alive (couse everythings changed), or he’s getting eager to “fix” this with his dad, and founds something he did in the “alternative life” (what we’ve seen throug season 1-5), that made an effect on the “new time line“. And he will realize he had a “alternative life”
..well, Nuff said about the “New timeline”
The temple, i was relly lifted to see that, still don’t get it all, why the stewardess is there, and the children, couse from the beginning they were on Jacobs list, they got kidnaped in season 2 and we didn’t now to where, now we got the answer, but why? What does they have that the temple people have? Why does they fit in their community? Â And where do they come from? Why does he speak Japanese? Are they the people from the black rock?
And finally, Flocke says something about Alperts chains, i don’t think it’s a metaphore, maybe it has something to do with the slaves at the black rock? Some one gave him eternal life without ageing? Maybe it’s over now when Jacob is dead? Ben said that Alpert is some kind of Adviser of the island, i think Jacob, MIB and Alpert are somehow connected, those three are the “owners” of the island in some how?
Iv’e tried to be brief, hehe
Don’t forget the vendetta between Ben & Widmore, the numbers, how the statue falled and don’t forget what the prophet said about Aaron, and how he had to be raised! ^^
