For my Lost friends. A very cool snippet about TV trivia. Not sure if you’ve seen this. If not prepare yourself 🙂

The Show that Ruined Television

And for folks that wished to be in this reality. Cant tell if we’re from the TV gen?

Obviously not a unique subject matter and having been beaten to death, questions remain about what exactly happened at the end.

However, i will not try to be another flogger of that poor horse. My target is one or singular in goal. It is to do with the Losties or should i say Lostie. The Lostie I refer to is of course, Jack who i would interpret as the main Lostie.

Now, having said what i said i wont rant (i hope) insanely on in my usual manner (as my buddies probably know about). This is to do with not only the end but beginning, which are inseparably linked if one believes the following.

The famous opening scene of Jack’s eye opening serves the purpose of the series beginning and his awaking after being put unconscious in the air crash. The end was dramatically and inversely the same, which in all I very much thought was a well thought out portrayal of the start/end concept.

The one theory many of you folks may believe about the Losties being dead all along seems to fit the model, I just tried to paint. However, would we not be talking Losties, as opposed to Lostie? I wonder how may people believe the adventures of Lost were played out in the theater of Jack’s mind between his eye opening and closing? Elaborate as it is. Or was the series, his life flashing before his eyes as it were, before he died, which may be a one and the same. The whole series in a split second…

I’m not sure if/how this could be debated but I’ve been wrong before, once….maybe…..okay, let’s pretend for the sake of argument..or not 🙂

PS: hopefully this is not a or one of a last entry given the Mayan calendar end’s on Friday, to speak of ends. said in a cautious joking manner.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch, just to say I think that it is very admirable the remaining dedicated ‘Losties’ have kept writing here and many others are participating in some fashion.

The series was outstanding; it was one of the most interesting and certainly one of the most addictive. Obviously I haven’t kicked mine! Too bad the producers (thus far) have not proven themselves to have any more substance save that 12 minute video entitled “The New Man”. The producers may be (in my thoughts) stars but just ordinary ones. They did not go that extra mile which may have propelled them to the higher ranks. 12 minutes makes not a mile unless you are walking really fast (ha) And if you want some proof of what were saying just check the 2010 Emmys results. Zero awards for Lost and associates.
However, complaining about the end is not in intent of this essay although anytime I can I will take a few swipes. We can now apparently answer a great many of the mysteries ourselves which is precisely why the true super stars are the folks that have contributed to this site and others like it. Thanks to this site, I’ve been gratified by reading other members supplemental stories, thoughts and feelings about the series. They (the TOL contributors) have had the talent and capacity to write version sets that represent to me, more than missing puzzle pieces but entire quadrants of it. These folks have a zillion times more imagination than the Lost producers ever had. If the folks on this site had written for the series it would be either still be airing entertaining the masses or it would have ended with nothing to complain about wrt satisfactory answers to the mysteries.
But…back to reality and off my soap box, we are just talking about TV. Or should I shall I approach entertainment in general. To take one more jab, I’d say the Lost ending was as satisfactory as the ending for the Oscar winning movie entitled “No Country for Old Men”. I felt spiritually gratified with that ending…NOT! Were these two shows written by the same people? However, it was a good movie — I see a comparison. Could these be examples of what is becoming a signpost for our contribution to this virtual world? Hold that thought (sudden shift) – I think…this brings to mind a past show…a show that represented a future Utopian..the…a…The Next Generation. I think we’re on that Donkey wheel (going round and round). Such as life! The fact TNG was a previous generation’s product is irrelevant; I’m just lookin’ at past examples of TV fan abandonment that ended in long term success.

Ok then, let’s revisit that spin off argument. This time there’s Monopoly money where my mouth is – empirical proof, for your consideration;

Trekie$ = Lostie$ 2

-> (the following is pronounced like the star of the TV series, Paranormal State, while he’s narrating or maybe more like Stephen Hawking while he’s just talking) – Math is in theory a subjective expression medium but at the same time a universally accepted method of (end of sounding like those guys)….Got to go, The Event is about to come on the tele in this time zone!

Oh, and one more thing Ma’am – The best of the season to all and to all a good night 🙂

Unfortunate that October/November 2010 has been so thin on theories thus far. AND The Cabin was a great subject for discussion. Have we lost LOST or have we lost the Others and Losties? Hopefully it is/was just a blip wrt trend.
In any event, I shall not be stopped from asking if the idea I’m about to propose, if not as good as The Cabin, be considered for upcoming Theories of the Month…
That said, if we could discuss Season 5, the Hatch and the Losties. For example, what do we suppose happened when and if Jughead detonated or not?
Did nothing happen? How did the Hatch return to its post Desmond state in Season 6 E1, if indeed it did? Was this a case of what happened, happened? Would things have been different, if during the 1970s something had happened differently? Could something have happened differently? Could the 70’s be to blame? Could this confusion have been averted if it wasn’t for the 70s?
I’m certain some of this had been discussed at an earlier point, however since Lost ended, I don’t believe it has extensively.
It may be interesting to play with a full hand as it were, now we have the series behind us. Just to mention; having a full hand is by no means the same as having a full deck (to speak of the 70s).
IF the admin and community (as it is) likes the idea, nice people could spend time on Facebook while the debate flares on 🙂

Admin, because there were so few entries for Oct 2010, perhaps the contest period could be extended for those who did not get the opportunity to submit a theory in time? It could be called the “Oct/Nov ’10 Contest”.
I (for one) was looking forward to reading a variety of thoughts about The Cabin! It was an excellent basis for discussion. Perhaps the theme is so intriging, more time to ponder it is required.

The Island was an elusive creature that no one could just visit because it was always moving. They would either be invited by an inhabitant or were un/fortunate depending on your perspective, to land there.
The cabin a child of the Island, like its parent also moved constantly. If The Island moved thru space/time so did the offspring but in its own independent fashion.

To understand desperation is not the intent of this submission. To understand the event sequences given the emotional driver, is.

The Cabin being vulnerable as any other living thing was inevitably expropriated by MIB with the intent of using it to escape the Island. Paterned after his Donkey Wheel, MIB over the millennia, had developed a mobile Donkey Wheel technology, however he lacked the physical ‘hardware’, a device or even better described, a vehicle. This vehicle had to be composed of particular elements. For example all parts needed to come from the Island; wood branches, grass, sugar cane, a cloth hosting the embroidered picture of the statue made by Jacob for decoration and so on. Symbolically it was to be born of the Island.
The problem was he could not build such a structure himself, it had to come into a natural existence. MIB had to patiently bide his time awaiting the opportunity to present itself. When Horace Godspeed decided he needed a getaway from his pressures of being the Dharma lead, MIB saw great opportunity. Before The Cabin was finished he planned the Dharma Purge and when it was complete he orchestrated it. Thus ridding the Island of those who came to corrupt and destroy but firstly to get the Godspeeds the hell out of the cabin. Unknowingly, Richard, young Ben and the Others carry out the grand plan believing the instruction has originated with Jacob.
Note: The Dharma Purge to be discussed in detail in another venue.

The cabin was perfect. It was made above ground, made of the island and in an area that was remote and easy for MIB to access. His work then begins. He assembles the elements required including elements from the Island’s power source that emit high levels of EMR (Electro-magnetic Radiation) which was stored in jars. Energy required for time/space travel. The Cabin is developed to the point where it can now move thru space/time but for some reason it is confined to the Island geographically. Having it work like the Donkey Wheel will require much more work.
Fortunately this setback gives Jacob and team time to discover The Cabin’s existence and reason d’etre before MIB can complete the work.

After the Purge, Jacob had thought hard about the significance of the act and about its implications. He knew he had to work quickly to determine what MIB was doing. Knowing MIB as he did helped motivate in that quest. Given the gravity of the situation, all of the Others were asked upon to help find the source of recent reported temporal distortions. There was no question in Jacob’s mind it was the work of MIB.
The campaign would later explain how Ben knew how to find The Cabin, although he didn’t know quite what it was. Once The Cabin was found they postulated, dreamt and hoped they had discovered the source of the disturbances. Soon afterward is was conformed The Cabin was indeed the center of the disturbances and a circle of ash was laid down by the Temple leader – not to keep MIB or any one else imprisoned or safe inside but rather to keep MIB out in order to prevent him from possibly finishing the project and escaping the Island.
In essence the cabin represented another failed loophole for MIB. This among dozens of other failed attempts throughout the millennia. This time however, one could sense this failure was not absolute.

The question then becomes; why did MIB not use the original Donkey Wheel, directly, to escape? The answer is plain; he was not allowed (another rule) or able to for some reason. Perhaps the Island itself was preventing that action. The proof of this is presented when Locke falls into the well that leads to both an underground tunnel and the wheel. There he encounters Christian aka MIB. Having broken his leg in the fall he asks Christian for help in which Christian says he can’t thus implying MIB cannot directly move the wheel.

Sometime between 2004 and 2007 the ash circle gets broken; by who may not be of importance. What is important is The Cabin is accessible again. MIB of course returns to resume his work. But he cannot spend as much time on this project because he is working on the time loop one involving Locke and the compass. Now that he has his vehicle, his home base (The Cabin) returned to his possession, he can proceed. The project often keeps MIB up late at night and out of space/time. This latest loophole project, seemingly having a better or more accelerated chance to succeed, MIB invests most of his energy. Killing Jacob would certainly make the job easier wrt his ultimate goal of leaving the Island. Now, The Cabin’s purpose slightly changed. He uses it for several purposes actually;

1) A conference room for meetings for example with Locke and Claire.
2) An office and command post for planning.
3) MIB also uses it to follow Locke and the Losties thru time in S5.
4) He rents it out on occasion for some extra cash (I added this for fun)

In the meantime Jacob discovers further temporal disturbances are occurring. He surmises desperately, the cabin must be accessible to MIB again. If he is right the fate of the world is in the balance. He then enlists Alana to come to the Island to find and destroy or more accurately, burn it to the ground. But by then, of course, it is too late. The Cabin is no longer an issue. In the borough of an event so potentially horrible, Jacob retreats to the statue’s foot, his home, to contemplate alternatives as well as prepare for the unthinkable. MIB appears to be one step ahead of Jacob.
The Cabin originally slated as an escape pod has now served a very different purpose, an unfathomable purpose. In its smoldering aftermath is a shrine to MIB’s apparent victory over Jacob. The Cabin is now dead and soon to be accompanied by Jacob.
Is this the beginning of the End of the World?

I had not looked at other people submissions prior to posting this. I tried is keep this theory as isolated as possible. Not to say others cannot use any of these ideas if indeed unique. I encourage the practice. Together we will figure this thing out; this thing being what we fondly refer to as Lost!

I would like to comment that the theories presented in this round were as valid as any other, in my opinion. Great stuff all. I don’t think one could pick and choose a theory just because it is the one (sounds sort of Matrix like doesn’t it?) as opposed to; it feels like it’s a better fit for me. The latter thought probably reflecting an essence of the Lost drama…interpretation, perception and democracy. Why I’m here! No…I am not pushing the Democrats.
Now on a business note, I would like to request my submission be declared void http://www.theoriesonlost.com/2010/09/who-is-the-good-guy-anyway-theories-contest/ wrt this month’s gala as stated in my theory string, not to be confused with String Theory or Big Bang Theory, the TV show not…OK, I stop rambling now. If you want more TV WEB discussion maybe Admin knows where, admins know stuff. In addition, it would be less than honest if I were to say I was worried there was a chance to prevail.
Although, I believe the theory to be valid, it flounders by attacking one of the show’s fundamentals wrt the idea of Good vs Evil. The theory basically says, Good and Evil are interchangeable. And it goes on to say; Good and Evil being unnecessary discrete states why shall they be considered apart. At least that’s what I say now ha..ha. Unintentional as it was, it was an off-the-cuff thought and based on opinion of real reality (can that be said?) inversely related to .. what else, Lost, but in retrospect — morbidly boring TV commentary indeed. Elaborating, ‘not what you call a prime time winning composition’. Yes, I do owe you one after this!.
Besides, not that it is important, I don’t think the producers were on that track. Their version would have been more like Good and Evil are distinct states arrived at by situational events as opposed to preexisting states that require occupancy; a chicken and egg thing, this of course debatable as well.
I will say submissions from this camp for the competition of the month future, will not be consistent with this one’s. ie I intend not to revoke any future offerings (that’s what I say now ha…ha). Didn’t think it was ‘proper’ to ask to delete the particular entry after the amount of elapsed time since submission. There is such a thing called IT Etiquette, you know.
Thanks to Admin for this and the idea of hosting this debate as well as allowing thoughts to be shared, or if you wish me to speak for myself…mine.
Without the series airing anymore, this forum has been a great continuance. Good fun! Hope it goes on and on.
Looking forward to the next Theory of the Month!

I think the Oceanic 815 Pilot was killed by Jacob although it was MIB that appeared to have performed the evil deed simply because Jacob didn’t want the candidates to have exit capabilities off the Island once they became captives.
Jacob was also responsible for blowing up the freighter in S4 (I think) and well as killing the Ajira flight pilot in 5 for similar reason. I believe Christian; who appeared to Michael before he died or got blown to pieces to be precise, while on the freightor, was Jacob because we now know the MIB could not “fly” over water. And who else had that supernatural ability to perform as such at that time?
Also I think Jacob and MIB did not kill Frank because he was a candidate. Remember, Frank was originally to be the 815 pilot but was replaced suspiciously beforehand.
My theory folks!

By virtue of the fact the debate about the series wrap up carries on is an indication of something. And that something is not a desirable something. It is either a desirable nothing or undesirable something. An abbreviated overview would most likely say bluntly – great series lousy ending.
It was one thing for Bob Newhart to end his series (during the 80s) by parodying other TV series that copped out on seasons and whole series by saying things like; the season was a dream, the series was all in the imagination of a mentally challenged young mind or aliens exist and are responsible for the building of the Pyramids, etc and it is another to do it seriously. Oh I get it now…they were trying to be funny too.
In a way these endings were better than Lost’s because although they fell short, they dealt with the issue(s). I couldn’t fully say that about Lost in terms of the mythology. On the other hand, I think it’s agreed they did considerably better with character resolutions. Maybe that’s where they pull up even with or surpass these past series endings, who knows.
Not to knock Lost’s writers (who I think did a stellar job through most of the series) but instead of doing comedy skids for Jimmi Kimmel about alt endings, writing about alt universes or sideway worlds they probably should have spent time tying up more loose ends. And, should have cared less about who (in the blogs) as theorized by many, might have guessed and often did for that matter, what was going to happen next. In any event their product was proven and many had said that they didn’t care about the audience anyway, Then I say; so go for what you think makes most sense. I don’t agree they didn’t care but I would say they had nothing to lose at that point because it was after all, the end.
Would it have been better if the island turned out to be an alien spacecraft instead of a?…just a minute, they didn’t explain that one either! Well, they sort of explained it. They related The Force in Star Wars to the Island. ie there is no explanation. You know, I’m beginning to like this stuff!
Acknowledgement : There was a welcomed post-ending short video just released that has addressed some of the previously unanswered questions. Approx date 10/8/6.

I think Jack is still alive. Proof: I rewatched the finale the other night and I saw his eye open after it closed for a spilt second at the end of the last episode. After noticing this (I have it PVRed) I went back to the critical point and slowed it down to approx 1000 frames per second and you could see it reopen briefly (very) just before going the end Lost screen. Does anyone know if there are sites or whatever out there where I could get away with this kind of stuff? wolfx get a life? Agreed.

But seriously, wouldn’t one logically believe if Jack were lying out in the bamboo field (dead or alive), he would have been found by Hurley and Ben who would have brought his body back to the revival pool? Jack would regain his title as protector, provided Hurley didn’t want to keep the job..hmmm. Also supporting this argument would be Jack’s late arrival at the church at the end which would have been the case if he were the island protector. He could have theorically lived for centuries/millennia after the others. There’s the spinoff series! I have an original idea, the series should start with his eye closing in the very first scene.

Hopefully no one at the alt ending site or elsewhere had this one and if so, apologies.

A question I have about Lost and its endings; Why did it end? It was rich with all elements that make a show interesting. If it was ratings, then why does Star Trek endure (not to knock ST for I am a mild Trekie myself)? I believe Lost could have gone on for years entertaining us. Slowly creating more mystery, answering existing mysteries without giving the whole show away – eg MIB’s real name, introducing new characters and reintroducing old characters and so on. What’s 16 hours a year in a life when we’re being entertained?
TV shows often attempt to go out on good footing. Seinfeld, Cheers and MASH are good examples; however these shows had run the course. Lost appeared to be in its prime. Was the idea to kill it before it got old? There seemed to be so much more to explore whether it be science fiction, the mythology or the characters; People can grow even when they’re old.
I understand as it is argued, the answers to many of the mysteries were presented directly or indirectly. The ones that were answered directly ALWAYS created more mystery and the indirectly answered ones are obviously debatable. The argument to me, boils down to — was/is the production genius or bulls–t? A dichotomy..imagine that, the essence of the show! Even in summation the argument can lead to more conjecture.
We had a good thing here and now it’s gone; now time will be the ultimate judge as to whether the show was really that good. I think it will say it was, but there is always room for improvement,
There is a concept called synergy and in the TV program called Lost, I think the concept found an application. What’s wrong with thought provoking TV when it’s well presented, anyway? I say absolutely…..nothing!
The adventure continues…

I wonder what the Lost spinoff series will be called, given there is one. The popularity of this show indicates there must be something that’s being considered. Wishful thinking, I dare not postulate for my prime time sanity is at stake. The show could include any or all of the characters possibly illustrated from different perspective. I think it would be delightful!
I REALLY NEED MY REGULAR FIX OF LOST OR SOME SUBSTITUTE THEREOF OR…. OK,OK I’ll watch most (OK all) of the commercials even if I record episodes and watch them later.
Uncle already!

Most if not everyone would agree a large number of questions were not answered by THE End. My main confusion stems from the idea that the question is simple. Why couldn’t all or most of answers be made available in straight forward fashion? It is that difficult to provide simple answers such as; MIB’s real name was Jack too; The Island was actually Neverland and Mother was Peter Pan and the rest of the cast was the Lost Boys (and Girls); Jacob extorted the Lottery Corporation and made sure Hurley won, then manipulated the Dharma I into using these same numbers for their purposes because as a group they seemed rather uncreative; The Smoke Monster was actually worked as the Cookie Monster from 9 to 5 because he had a wife and little fires to take care of. And the ultimate secret….(drum roll please) LOST spells TSOL backwards. Thoroughly Sweet Out of Luck.
I jest (maybe).

Thanks for your patience and time. See you at the new site.

After having read a ton and a half of comments wrt how Lost ended. I get the frustration many of the fans are experiencing. Can’t say I blame them. I always believed (perhaps naively) that the production would come through with answers of sorts but it appears those answers are holidaying in Hawaii indefinitely. They went for emotion/sentimentality as a main weapon without effectively addressing the mystery and the mythology.
In their defense they marginally answered some questions. But the ones that were answered were answered too simply “The names of the candidates are just written in chalk on a cave wall” with others (not the Others) left to interpretation. What the heck is a Jacob?
I think the problem was the show had locked (not Locke) itself in given its linear prime time soap opera format. You either watched LOST or you didn’t. The audience was a captive one. It may have been thought these guys (the fans) will accept whatever we hand them given it is delivered in emotional wrappings in perceived intelligent fashion. And if we align some of the ducks and make the closer as gut wrenching as possible then maybe they’ll forget about the rest. No question, they are experts at this stuff. The formula works but there are some variables missing (I SAID VARIABLES) if you want to balance the equation.
But seriously let’s not bite the hand that fed us, they are great producers/writers otherwise we would not be in debate. Guess some of us just wanted a little more.

I would imagine it is extremely difficult for writers to fully reconcile all events contiguously or seamlessly within a show of such complexity. In terms of the number of players, multi layered storylines, scenes coordination, interpretations of theories of space, time and electromagnetism, special effects editing and so on, I think it may be more difficult to produce this type of entertainment than say, a movie, much of the time. All this capped by trying to keep the mystery from millions of people for 6 years. And there is probably a lot more to it as well. What a collaboration.
This assumption, however, will not stop me from trying to summarize Lost into a known one line saying or song title. These by no means, refer to the last episode’s content for example; the near to last scene in the Church and where you see the Losties heading into the afterlife. Nor am I implying reference to anything specific at any given time throughout the series.
I am going for the “whole enchilada” as it were!
What do you think? “Back Jack, do it again”, “All that glitters is not gold”, the classic “Burnin’ for you” and most notably “The road to Hell is paved with good intensions” to name a few.
So, on that note (pun intended) we bid a due and the best to all. Now it’s time to add my contribution and creation…”Please, don’t let that stop you”.

Did the Island exist or were the Losties dead all along (since the crash)? I say NO. Proof: Desmond, Penny and Juliet were in the church and Ben was outside at the end. Unless they were also in the 815 plane crash then Jack (and/or the rest) would not have known them. Therefore the Island was ‘real’ and so were the adventures.
Granted there were many little holes, unresolved issues and mysteries in the storyline which could render this logic inapplicable. But these characters were major and if you accept the Island was Purgatory, then the architectural foundation of the story is compromised. Not to mention this theory was denied by the writers from my readings.
Secondly, it appears the flight did make it off the island in which the people onboard (Kate, James etc) may have lived for some time afterward. Proof: Kate says to Jack “I missed you for so long”. Did she die of old age? Possibly, remember Christian told Jack the Island adventure was the most significant event in all their lives. Hurley and Ben’s discussion about their being a great #1 and #2 respectively, inferring they lived for some time after Jack died as protectors of the Island.
The only other explanation (also dismissed by the writers): All events occurred in the theatre of Jack’s mind as he was dying. I think from the reviews, most believe the sideways world was more likely being played out in Jack final moment of life if anything. This would parallel the sideways world being Purgatory as opposed to the island. Somehow I prefer to think it was the cast’s waiting area before moving on to the afterlife or new jobs. Why some people were not in the church? Perhaps they were not dead yet or already moved on (eg Frank, Miles etc).

Speaking of new jobs, who knows Jack, may not even be dead. Maybe he became the new Smoke Monster (I stole this from another contributor), which would have given Hurley and Ben something to do right away in a spinoff series serving as the plot for the 1st episode.

Sorry of these ideas have already been theorized. If so, now I’m like you!
Aloha Lost

‘The end’ is near. 2 episodes remain. We’ve read more theories we care to admit about this provocative series. It is fairly certain; ‘the answers’ will not be fully satisfactory in many cases.
Detail is impossible to account for; even the most avid fan will miss them. Don’t expect the writers to be able to reconcile events as evidenced in the episode “Across the Sea”. In the last scenes where Jack and Kate find Adam and Eve’, apparently Jack said originally (in Season 1) the corpses looked to be 40 years old. I don’t feel like verifying this but tend to believe the fans in the blogs, who have the DVD sets or recorded media.
However, there is a way but it will take time. Possibly the show’s company would like the series to spin off into other series and/or movies. Not an original thought but it is a means to ‘the end’.
If the show’s creators, writers, producers and so on can do a better than the X-Files crew did; all the power to them.
The real mystery is; should be trust them with our money? Why not, seriously what else do you have to do?
Here’s to a great series. I was personally gratified. With my obsession/addiction, I learned things. Whether it be a Hollywoodized ancient history lesson or what’s to be said about the dichotomies of black and white, good and evil and so on; most things to not come in neat packages. The reality is the world is grey, ambiguous and left to interpretation.
Entertainment is one of the colorizers. And this is exactly what Lost was.
Thank you Lost.
