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!

I thought I’d create a topic where you can post some funny lost parodies that you have seen.

Just post a link to the video in the  comments, with a brief description of it.

This one is about Jon Locke, who is LIKE A BOSS

Let me just start off by apologizing because I know everyone has asked this question before, but I felt the need to bring it up again for some reason…
Why do Jacob/MIB have modern American accents? They are plainly speaking English to each other in what almost seems like southern California accents! I can’t accept that the writers just got lazy or thought we would be too stupid to understand or that it would be too revealing if they spoke in (maybe Egyptian?) or with a British or Australian accent…The writers obviously have no problem with foreign languages (i.e. Dogen, Jin/Sun, Ilana/Richard…).
Am I correct in assuming that the ship they saw was the Black Rock? That was somewhere in the 1800’s, right? Those accents didn’t exist back then, and neither did their lingo. I’d like to hear everyone’s opinion on why they speak this way.

Written 16th February

OK – this is totally for fun.. but might have some value to it!

The Candidates for leadership of the island have been revealed to us through Jacob’s mad writings on the wall and through the numbers.

Jack Shepard: I believe he is nominated because he has the uncanny ability to fix things when they are irreperable. This is a trait that could be useful in helping the eager-to-be pregnant women on the island.

James ‘Sawyer’ Ford: Nominated for his ability to ‘con’ people. Lying can be a valuable asset for protecting the Island and its inhabitants. Sawyer also gets an honourable mention for being less of a pain in the ass than Jack.

Hurley ‘Hugo’ Reyes: Nominated for is general good will toward men. Hurley also has the ability to sway people’s decisions – much like Sawyer, but less deceivingly.

Sayid Jarrah: Nominated partially as an international contingent. He is good with electronics and torturing information out of people – a leader has to do what a leader has to do. And, considering who the Others are, he may fit right in!

Sun/Jin Kwon: As we are uncertain about which Kwon is alluded to on the cave wall, let’s get some attributes of both people – though I’m leading toward Jin (mostly cuz he’s male and all the candidates seem to be male… patriarchy.. figures). Jin has the ability to follow orders like a puppy dog – a good quality for one in the service of Jacob. Jin also has an uncanny ability to catch fish – I’d say this is important in taking care of the Others… gotta feed them. Sun has the gift of herbalism; she possesses the keys to healing others through herbal remedy; this is something that ties in very nicely to the nature of the Island itself.

John Locke: Nominated for his quality of faith and belief. His determination to do more than he normally can demonstrates the will to do whatever it takes to protect the Island and its people – we have already seen him try to do this. He also has mad tracking and hunting skills.

Now… there are those that are not nominated. Mainly Kate.
Kate Austen: Not nominated because she has no apparent beneficial skills to the Island, the Losties, Jacob or the rest of mankind. Sure – she can track. However, Miss Austen does the exact opposite of what she is told. She gets her friends into trouble or killed.

Anyways… those that are nominated definitely have “special” abilities – I hope that there might be some insight into this later in the series at some point. It also makes me question why Walt was not nominated. Too young? Not sure.

As far as all of mysteries on LOST are concerned, The Cabin definitely strikes me as a significant part of the story, one which we have probably been given the least bit of information on.

Lets start out by stating what we actually know about The Cabin –

1. A ring of ash surrounds it (safe to assume this is the same ash used to block the smoke monster).
2. It has the ability to change its location (the ash remains in the original spot)
3. Someone ‘else’ has been using it (according to Ilana)
4. Christian,Claire and a mysterious figure have all been seen inside

Seems to me that everything we know about The Cabin is really just another question

1. Did the ash around The Cabin keep the MIB in or out?
2. Did The Cabin move because the ash line broke? Seems to make sense considering when Locke went back he found the ash circle but no cabin! But why did it move? When Ilana went back why was The Cabin in its original spot surrounded by the ash if the line was broken?
3. Did Jacob ever really live in the Cabin? Who did Ilana mean when she said ‘he’ is not here ‘some one else’ has been using it. Who left the knife and statue picture on the wall?
4. ‘Using it’ for what? Why burn it down if it has been abandoned?

A HUGE question for me is how/what does Ben know about The Cabin? He has never met Jacob and has no idea what or who MIB is – so what has he been told. When Ben told Richard in season3 that he was taking John Locke to ‘the cabin’ to see Jacob, what did Richard think he was doing? If breaking the ash line is so dangerous, shouldn’t ignorant Ben be kept away!

We have 4 significant visits to the ‘The Cabin’ – each visit tells a different more confusing story!

1. Ben & Locke go in, Locke notices the ash, Ben notably steps over it! Ben puts on a show for Locke to pretend he knows Jacob, but they are both suprised by the mysterious figure. I really have no clue what/who this could be other then the ghost of MIB. Shown here – http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/File:3x20_Jacob_portrait.jpg

2. Hurley stumbles upon The Cabin and takes a gander inside, only to see something very confusing. Christian Shephard is sitting in the rocking chair and then a mysterious eye pops up which scares the crap out of him. Shown here – http://lost.cubit.net/assets_c/2008/02/4x01_cabinCloserLook-thumb-470×771.jpg

In my opinion (and what is compared in that picture^) That is the eye of John Locke.

Hurley is very scared and sort of tumbles/runs away. I think Hurley is responsible for breaking the ash ring for a number of reasons

– He fails to notice the ash ring on his way up to the cabin.
– His tumble/fall/crawl away from The Cabin was a horrible exit strategy, definitely would disrupt the ring of ash
– Immediately after Hurley runs away, The Cabin moves and is now infront of him.
– When Locke tries to find it again, The Cabin is gone but the ash ring is still in place.

3. Locke goes in alone to find Christian and Claire. Claire is obviously not herself and apparently Christian can speak on behalf of Jacob. Hmmmm?

4. Ilana finds the cabin in its original spot (where Ben knew too look, where the ash surrounds it). She finds a message on the wall, a picture of the statue and she knows where to go next. Who put that picture of the statue up for her?

She says “HE is not here, SOME ONE ELSE has been using it”

Who is he? Who is some one else? Who left the message?

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THAT DAMN CABIN!!!!!!!!!!

I need an episode with a cabin flashback, I want to see everything that has ever gone down with that cabin!

Well, one of the next episodes will surely be totally focused on Richard’s background. Ricardus, right? was that what someone called him once? ie portuguese or spanish. Portugal and Spain had some of the best sailors in the history of mankind where ships such as the one seen in the incident were discovering the world.

I believe there was a mutiny on his ship and he was the captain and when the ship reaches the island, we will see him there in chains.

The Wait is Over

It was a long time coming, but February 2nd finally arrived, and we the audience were treated to genius writing, brilliant acting, breathtaking special effects and plot twists we never saw coming. Of course I’m referring to the latest “Movie Maven — Special LOST episode,” starring the lovely Tara Perry and myself. http://www.mania.com/video_27_4-lost-theories/

Here are a few emailed thoughts from Ms. Perry:

“ …good to see Sawyer/Jack hatred again. But so help me god if they force another love triangle between Jack/Kate/Sawyer again so soon after Juliet I will hurt somebody.”

“I wish Juliet and Sawyer could have had a little more time. Their goodbye seemed rushed.”

AND… “I liked the “sliding doors” flash sideways. I mean we did flash forwards, and flashbacks, I mean the next logical one was flash sideways. Right!?”

Oh Yeah, LOST Was Back Too.

Coincidentally, February 2nd was also the premiere of the sixth and final season of LOST, and that was pretty good too.

I have to admit I do feel a bit intimidated trying to make sense of what we just watched after an 8 month hiatus in which I somehow, for some reason managed to avoid most things LOST. I really didn’t watch any re-reuns, I didn’t even ask for Season 5 for Christmas so there was no long post Christmas weekend of laying in bed with my girlfriend as we caught up on the entire season. I think I’m just saying this because I normally feel I have a strong grasp on what I’ve seen, and what’s coming next, but after last night’s two-hour stake-raising mindfuck, while I’m not quite as confused as Benjamin Linus, I can at least empathize with the poor little bug-eyed guy.

So let’s get to it, shall we (he said with a mixture of both hesitance and desire.)

We opened last night where we ended last season; Juliet, bloodied and near death hammering the detonator with a nearby rock, and finally setting it off the bomb with one last Sheriff Brody-esque “come on you son of a bitch!”

Or did we? It seems to me that the white light we witnessed after the bomb theoretically went off could have only been just a time travel jump, or it could have been the time travel jump plus the explosion, or it could have been just the bomb. And since we can all agree the still island dwelling Losties did experience a time jump (because Jin told us and Miles suggested so) we now have to guess what year we jumped to.

What Juliet Did (or didn’t do)

Whatever Juliet did, or didn’t do when she did what she did seems to have set events in at least one timeline considerably different than the original timeline we have been accustomed to being confused by… now, it seems, we have at least one other entirely different story stream to try to comprehend. As if one alternating flash forwarding and flash backwarding, time-jumping universe wasn’t enough to wrap our minds around.

It could be 2004, but it could also be 2007, or it could be 2010. Whatever did happen, whether it was by Juliet’s hand or not seemed to have a long reaching effect in at least one parallel timeline. (Apparently the producers aren’t comfortable with the word “alternate” when describing the different story streams, so I’ll heed their wishes and go with “parallel” as well.) Personally I’d prefer if the year was 2010, because this way if they ever do decide to revisit the Walt character, even if just in a brief cameo, we’ll all understand why he’s 6 foot four and has three kids of his own now.

Whatever year it is, obviously altered history to the point where Desmond is now an Oceanic passenger, but Shannon, Michael and Walt are not. That means, from my way of thinking, the core group (Jack, Locke, Sawyer, Hurley, Sayid, Jin, Sun, Charlie, and possibly Boone if we consider him core) could have still met up for the first time on an Oceanic plane from Sydney to L.A. in 2010.

Just from Jack’s hairstyle that makes sense, but also he looks older now than he did in 2004. As does Sawyer, Bernard, Charlie, and especially Kate’s marshal buddy, Eddie Mars. They all look around 6 years older, but maybe I’m just not suspending enough disbelief.

Anyway, we open on Oceanic flight 815 from Sydney to Los Angeles, and things are at once familiar and different. There’s Jack getting a free vodka bottle from the mysterious flight attendant, Cindy Chandler, except this time when the plane bounces around, it’s Rose who comforts Jack, just before she is (kind of) unexpectedly greeted by her lovin’ hubby Bernard from his harrowing experience of making a turbulent number two at 35,000 feet.

I have to say, much like Sun, I was touched by the old person love between these characters. I’d like to think no matter what universe you place Rose and Bernard; their genuine love for each other will always keep them safe from harm. Clearly this will not be case with many of the other passengers.

Mirror Mirror.

One thing that may have gotten lost (pardon the pun) in the two hours of information overload is the (probable) shaving nick on Jack’s neck as he bewilderedly gazed at himself in… THE MIRROR.

Hey I’ve been hawking my mirror theories since Charlie’s left-handed sign of the cross, and later after Ben’s reverse bullet wounds. You think I’m not going to mention a mirror in an episode where we are potentially observing mirror universes? Maybe Other Side of the Mirror Joe wouldn’t mention it, but This Side of the Mirror Joe doesn’t want to stop talking about it.

Ok, enough gazing at my own potential brilliance, and let’s look at Jack’s new airplane neighbor, Desmond — or more specifically, let’s check out what ol’ Des is reading these days. A quick Tivo freeze frame shows us the author is none other than the famed novelist and Muslim target, Slammin’ Salman Rushdie — he of the Satanic Verses controversy. The book in question happens to be a children’s story entitled “Haroun and the Sea of Stories.”

Let’s Let Wiki Do Some Work

I’m just grabbing from Wikipedia, because I’ve never read this book (though now my interest is certainly piqued.)

“The larger part of the plot occurs on a fictional satellite of the Earth’s, named Kahani, whose orbit is controlled by “Processes Too Complicated To Explain”. These processes enable it to fly over every single point on Earth. Kahani itself consists of a massive Ocean which itself is composed of an infinity of stories, each story taking the form of a current or stream of a unique color. The colors, therefore, encompass the whole visible spectrum and extend beyond into spectra that are not known to exist. Various islands and a continent are also shown on the moon. The name “Kahani” itself means “Story” in Urdu and Hindi, and is ultimately revealed to be the name of the sad city; a revelation that removes the sadness from the city’s people.”

Earth One, Earth Two, Earth Infinity

Multiple story streams. Well that explains everything and nothing at once, but allow me to use this Ocean(ianic) segway to delve into what’s at rest below the Pacific…. Why it’s the island, Dharma logo sharks and all.

So now we know we have at least two distinct possible timelines. That or it’s still possible that the Oceanic flight that lands safely is actually a flashforward from the island dwelling reality. Would it be interesting or unsatisfying if plane landing we saw last night happened in the future for the island bound Losties? (I say the middle, because we’d still have to pay off Kate’s escape and her fateful meeting with the pregnant or not pregnant Claire.)

Holy Haroun! I’ve already written more than two word doc pages, and I really haven’t even discussed Jacob vs. the Man in Black — and let’s be serious, this is after all, and has always been their show. Jack, Kate, Ben, Locke, Sawyer et al, are really just extras.

Let me write up a few important details from last night so we can discuss them in the comment boxes below, before we move on to the real stars of the night.

Talking Points

– Kate lifts Jack’s pen in her brief bathroom encounter. Uses it later to escape from the always escapable Eddie Mars. Man, even in a quick meeting in another plane of existence Kate uses Jack for her own needs.

– Arzt can’t get over how weird it is that the owner of the Mr. Cluck’s Chicken franchise sits in the back with the rest of the schlubs. Meanwhile I can’t get over how roomy Oceaniac’s coach seating is. Hurley is huge, but he seems more than comfortable. If it weren’t for their well-deserved reputation for losing passengers on mysterious islands, I’d consider Oceanic for my own air travel needs.

– This version of Hurley (the “Mirror” version, screams This Side of the Mirror Joe) proclaims himself to be the luckiest guy alive. Quite a difference from the wealthy but tortured Hugo Reyes who in another world went to Australia to figure out why those damned numbers kept popping up in his life. This leads us to wonder, did Hurley play the same numbers to win the lottery?

– Sun and Jin: It’s hard to tell if these two are a happily married couple in this universe. My guess is no. My guess is Sun really thought about abandoning her controlling husband at the airport just as she did in Season One, and she did cheat on him, and she does speak English, despite of what she told airport security. The real question for them becomes, will they ever find the happily ever after that seems to await Rose and Bernard at every turn, or because of Jin’s inability to have children, will Korea’s sweethearts never have the chance to rediscover their love.

– How ‘bout that Frogurt, huh? I really don’t even remember why we all call him Frogurt, but glad to see whatever world he’s in, the guy is always a low-level prick.

– Charlie. He is not happy to be alive in this other place. He died a hero’s death, and atoned for his sins, now he’s just a washed up ex rock star with a mountain of remorse and a serious horse problem. Love his lines; “Am I alive?” and “I was supposed to die.”

– Sawyer and Juliet: Man, Josh Holloway ripped my heart out again. That guy plays agonized lover as well as anyone. I was really hoping for Juliet to get better, but we all knew that wasn’t going to happen even if she didn’t already have the starring role in “V.”

– Sawyer thinks it’s Jack’s fault and wants to kill him, but given time Sawyer realizes he’s just as culpable as Jack by allowing Jack to make the decision to explode the bomb in the first place. Sawyer showed what a hero he was back in the glory days of the 70’s. All of his plans worked out back then. The guy is a born leader who got dealt a shitty deck as a boy, and made all of his bad career choices while he was an inconsolable grieving 8-year old child. Let’s cut a murdering conman some slack.

– Poor Jack. Wow, never thought I’d actually write that and feel it at the same time, but speaking of the “same time,” poor Jack has managed to get blamed for dooming the life of one person in one timeline (Juliet) while simultaneously getting blamed for rescuing another person in a different timeline (Charlie.)

– So if Charlie really died in the original timeline we’re all familiar with, but was also able to physically strike Hurley at the Santa Rosa Looney Bin after he drowned, is it possible that this very much alive parallel Charlie is actually the guy who dropped the smackdown on our favorite mental patient last season? That said, will these two worlds, eventually collide at some point during this season? Smart money says yes. Place your bets in the comment boxes below.

– Speaking of smackdowns, did FLocke, aka the Man in Black, aka The Smoke Monster lay down a beating on Bram and the rest of Jacob’s bodyguards or what? I haven’t seen that much skull clunking since Moe in a recent Three Stooges marathon. Loved that Bram thought that silly ash was going to protect him. It seems the ash does have a function, but it’s hardly a foolproof fail safe.

– How ‘bout that Boone? Nice to see Boonie again. I was never a big fan of the pussy-whipped brother/lover, but I’m just happy that he didn’t have to spend a day on the set of that lame ass Vampire Diaries show. So was Locke actually “pulling Boone’s leg?” Did the walkless Locke somehow go on his walkabout in this other life? Or was he just too ashamed of his handicap that he couldn’t bring himself to tell Boone the truth?

– Does Safe Landing Rose still have cancer? If Safe Landing Locke is still wheelchair bound, maybe Rose still has cancer. Then again, if time was reset back in 1977, maybe Rose never smoked, or inhaled asbestos, or hung out at a wi-fi infested Starbucks, and in turn, never was claimed by the deadly disease.

– Red shirts. Yeah, we all know Juliet wore a red shirt in last season’s finale and look where it got her. This saddens me to type it, but everyone’s favorite bit of comedy relief, Hurley, was wearing a red shirt, albeit a red shirt that would have covered up a half a dozen or so Juliet’s. Does this fashion choice foretell Hurley’s inevitable fate as one of the next casualties of the island, or will the “luckiest guy alive” (even though that’s what the other Hurley claims) be able to avoid certain crimson-clothed death?

– Bitter adversaries in one life, possible lifelong friends in another; I’m hoping Jack cures Locke’s disability and the two go on to have a mutually respectful relationship. We’ve always seen them as two sides of the same coin, but we’ve also always suspected they might enjoy each other’s company if both weren’t busy clashing over which way is right while so much was hanging in the balance. I enjoyed Locke soothing of Jack’s troubled soul with talk of Christian’s own immortal soul being now safe from mortal interference.

– Why did Marshal Ed let Kate have a potty break. I wonder if there’s a single universe in all the infinite story streams where Ed doesn’t wind up getting owned by Kate. Seriously Ed, maybe you should have just let the girl mess herself. I guess the only problem with that is on one of the myriad of timelines Kate probably beats up Marshal Ed with her own soiled panties Perhaps a delight for some of the readers on this site, but I’ll take a pass on that particular fetish.

– Jack presents his card to Locke and offers him a free consultation. The hospital Jack works at is St. Sebastian. St. Sebastian is a martyred saint and perhaps best known in religious paintings as that guy who is also shown tied up with arrows piercing him. By the way, he died twice.

– Sawyer doesn’t seem all that “conny” to me on the Safe Landing Universe. He could have been sizing Hurley up for a long con after the mention of his lottery winnings, but I’d prefer to think that this particular version of the hero/anti-hero never had to take up the nom de plume, “Sawyer,” because in this separate reality, his parents never got scammed. He has been and will always be “James Ford.” Sure he’s a bit of a harmless flirt, but ol’ charming Jimmy Ford had some business down under, but he’s flying back to be with the love of his life, his darling wife, Juliet. (I really like this idea.)

– Boy that Jacob loves to write lists. I guess he’s just old school…. Thousands of years old school, because everyone else nowadays emails their lists. Nice to see the ankh was just a Trojan horse inside the Trojan guitar case. (And conversely too bad Charlie swallowed Trojans filled with heroin.)

– Who’s Jin delivering this watch to, and could there be a more obvious metaphor for time?

– Sayid seems pretty happy to get off that plane in Safe Landing Universe. I’m pretty sure he’s dead in Island Bound World.

Lets’s Hear it For the Stars of Our Show…

And now ladies and gentlemen, you’ve waited long enough. It’s time for the stars of the show. Allow me to introduce a man who bears a striking resemblance to a certain bald, sad, pathetic, confused and deceased former island-communing hero, and now a lifeless corpse. He’s vengeful, he’s powerful, and he’s got Ben Linus shitting enough bricks to build another temple, he’s the man without a name….. The Smoke Monster, aka the Man in Black.

Our next guest hardly needs any introduction. He’s dead, and yet he’s not. Outwardly he’s a peaceful fisherman, but below the surface he has a few secrets. He wears a lot of white, and seems like a very nice guy, except when the storytellers want to confuse us, and then he appears capable of very bad things. Here he is, the one and only Jacob…. Jacob and Smokey ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Jacob and Smokey.

First of all, I have to remind everyone here that we still can’t automatically assume that Jacob is good and Smokey is evil, or even vice versa. I believe we’re talking about a more nuanced idea than simple plain good and evil, and with that said, man I just want Jacob to be good. At this point I want to know whom I’m supposed to be rooting for. I know it seems obvious, but these brilliant little fuckers love to mess with us, and I refuse to believe anything until it’s proven to me beyond a shadow of a doubt at the base of an ancient statue.

O’Quinn. Oh Yeah.

Hard to believe it has taken this long to mention this, but Sweet Baby Aaron, how freaking good was Terry O’Quinn in his dual role as the frustrated and raging demigod and the insecure and damaged human? Terry O’Quinn won’t need Jacob to include his name on any lists after this show runs it’s course, O’Quinn is going to be writing his own ticket in Hollywood for years to come.

Here’s another two-word phrase I never expected to string together, but, poor Ben. That guy hasn’t had many breaks his whole life. Mom dies giving birth to him, dad resents him for the death. Moves to an island as a young boy, takes a bullet in the heart, or in the exact opposite side of his heart, depending on the week, commits genocide on a small neighborhood, and personally murders his own father, and now it looks like he’s been reduced from detested leader of the Jacob-loving Others to Smokey’s frightened lackey. And yikes did he bitchslap Richard! Chains? Slave ship? Egyptian slave… how old is this Richard anyway?

And where is Jacob all this time? When last we saw him, he was dead and chatting it up with Hurley and informing the always rotund but recently turned man of action to bring Sayid to the Temple. (Which reminded me a whole lot of the Planet of the Apes — the set, the clothing, the background music.)

I Hope This Nickname Sticks

Here at the Temple we get to meet the Other Others. The ones who likely healed and forever changed young Ben Linus. Into what, we’re not sure, but I have a sneaking suspicion along with many of you, that after retrieving Sayid’s lifeless corpse from the healing/drowning/healing waters of the murky and malfunctioning water of life like Jesus removed from the cross, the man that rose from the dead was not completely Sayid and not completely Jacob. Let’s, for the simple sake of article writing call him, Saycob. (Because I prefer that to Jacyid.)

Will Saycob, with the help of the others, and the Other Others be enough to eventually take down the ostensibly all-powerful Man in Black? Only time(lines) will tell.

Until Next Week

So until next week, fire up your Hi-Def TV, (Imperative if you’re expecting to make out Dharma logos on cheesy yet cool underwater CG graphics.) make sure you hit the record function on your TiVo, (For multiple viewings, purposes immediately after watching the show the first time.) keep your laptop nearby, (You’ll never know when you might need to Google the philosophical works of Soren Kierkegaard. Seriously, Google Fear and Trembling. It’ll help you out if you’re trying to solve this mystery.) load up that bong, (For some of us, LOST isn’t our only drug of choice.) and get ready to get LOST.

Sept. 22, 2004 +101 days=January 02, 2005 + the time they faked getting to another island and being rescued from it.
If they are off the island for three years, then shouldn’t flight 316 have taken place in 2008?
Or is it because of the special island properties that the dates don’t add up

When Ms. Hawking said “for the first time I don’t know what’s going to happen” or something like that, it was quite a clue to me. If she knows for sure that no matter what you can do to change things to happen, still the man in the red shoes is going to die because the universe has its ways to course correcting, the why is she so fearful and “may god help us all”?Maybe she knows our losties have changed something in the past and now who knows the consequences? In my opinion Sajid did change the future shooting Ben because as we saw in the past Ben lived with his father and the D.I. until he became a young adult and then killed his father and all the Dharma people during the purge. Now in this new past he was shot when he was a little boy, taken the to the Others to be saved and probably stayed with them since then. How did Ethan end up to be one of the others and why did her mother Amy have a necklace with the same symbol hold in the hands of the statue? Was she one of the others from the beginning? What are your opinions, comments or answer about these ideas?

They played it this weekend and it made me think …

Is there something impt. about those who met Christian pre-815? Lots seem to be removed from the island.

Ana Lucia – his bodyguard. A good person wanted by the Others, per Ben (yeah, I know) – bam. Dead.

Was Michael sent specifically to get her? (Michael clearly had a plan to get a gun, learn how to shoot it, and then use it on some losties – but not Hurley’s girl*)

Desmond was sent away, too. (but got to live).

Could they be involved someway in MIB/Jacob plans and removed to interfere with same plans?

Kinda’ like Locke exchanges, and him defying ‘don’t open the hatch’ type stuff.

Cool note – CS argues w/an Australian woman about seeing his daughter – but this episode isn’t mentioned wrt to Clare Littleton.

*Don’t bring a girl you meet on ‘the island’ to a beach picnic. Just as Sayid & Hurley.

From the last episode of season 4 and the first episode of season 5 the “present time” moved ahead three years? All we know about that time is from future flashes in season 4? Can anyone give a breif summary of the important things that happened? I haven’t watched season five yet, i just started the first episode and i’m so confused because it’s like now the flash forward is the present.

Thank you! Your help is much appreciated 🙂

ive been wacthing the first episodes again, as i havent watched them since they first hit the oggle box.

and it was rally god to watch it, the hindsight aspect was very intriguing!

but to my point. when claire visits the palm reading and he gets spooked and cannot carry one. we later find out that he saw something that meant claire had to protect her baby and so on and soforth

my only quam with it all, was when he told claire he had got a suitable couple in america to take her baby, and that she HAD to get the flight, ” it must be that flight!” (816)
this leads me to think say for instance, the palm reader did have a suitable couple, why would she HAVE to get THAT flight? its not as if they were only going to meet her off that flight or they were going to spontaneaously combust or anything.

so, we can assume the palm reader perhaps knew that she had to get on that flight, for some reason. did he know about the plane crash?

hark back to the newest series, and elouis hawking said to the lost crew, “it must be that flight”, which is the same thing the palm reader suggested.
now, moving onto jacob, we saw him visit the lost crew as youngsters and in present.

is it possible, jacob was grooming claire as well, did jacob pay any amount of money to claries boyfriend to leave claire, inturn making her go back to the palm reader and take the flight?

the mind boggles…..(agaain)

ps. thank you teresa you made me think of ths with your ‘grooming’ phrase!

Here is my theory. At first you may say the time frames don’t add up, but from what we have seen this year, i dont think time is a big issue as with all the jumping about thats being going on.

I am really intereted in the guy dressed in balck at the start of the season 5 finale. And several things stood out for me.

1. The black and white theme coming back into play – light versus dark
2. The fact that this guy wants to kill Jacob so badly – what pushes someone to want to do that?
3. The obvious way jacob did not call him by his name when he called Jacob by his name – why do this? i think to hide the fact we may already know this person – biggest clue for me!

So, then my brain starts to think about who do we already know who this person could potentially be?

My thoughts led me to Aaron, and this is why:

Right from the start Claire was told that SHE must raise Aaron and no one else, that the ramification for her not bringing up Aaron would be a disaster! If you look back at that episode we know that the clairvoyant was a fake, but who would tell him to convince claire of this? Jacob perhaps?? To ensure that she stays on the “right path” as he did with all the other losties we saw in the finale, she keeps Aaron, Jacob orchestrates her to be on flight 815, get to the island, where he can maniupate and keep an eye on her to ensure she does indeed raise Aaron. Because, if Aaron doesnt have Claires “goodness” then he would turn bad – possible like our black shirted friend. However, the events of season 4 transpire, and the guy in the black shirt, taking on the form of Christian amongst others manipulates the situation so Aaron and Claire are seperated so he, Aaron can become the black shirted man in the futrure and then return to the past, how or why i havent thought of yet. Confused yet?

In season 1, where Locke appears to claire in her dream, the one where he has a black and a white eye, he says “we all pay the price now” Now, i take 2 things from this. One is the black and white eye, that Locke see’s things from Jacobs view but also pre empts the evil side as his body will evetually be used by Aaron/ black shirted man. I also think this is the work of jacob, using Locke again to reinforce a point to Claire through the medium of dreams.

I cant type anymore but would like o hear thought on the general idea that aaron is the black shirted man.

Cheers

Was it just me or did the cab driver for Hurley and Jacob look familiar?

hello guys, I am new at this website with lost theories. You should know that i am a physicist, and that i know a lot of things about time travel and all other goofy stuff. So read what i wrote, because it gets interesting.

Lets start at the begining. We know the answer, why the oceanic 815 crashed on the island. it was Desmonds fault. But do we really know what has happened there. What has changed. I am thinking time has changed its ways. We all saw Daniel Faraday going out of the submarine last episode. The theories that i heard are next. he was time traveling, he was away and returned 3 years later. Lets explain the first option. We all saw ceasar holdin a time line map. The map was showing the time bariers on the island. If Daniel wanted to travel in time he had to go right in the middle of all time bariers. And search for a portal. That would be possible if Desmond changed the time on the island when he crashed the oceanic 815, and didnt type those numbers in the computer. If Daniel was time traveling this would be the only option. But how would he know about that. Were the nose bleeds somehow connected? I am thinking that he was away of the island because he needed to get over Charlottes death. I really hope, that i helped clarify my theory. Its hard for you, but very easy for me:)

Greetings fellow LOST junkies. I wondered all week how ‘Some Like it Hoth’ was going to compare to last week’s Ben-centric masterpiece, ‘Dead is Dead.’ I admit it didn’t wow me as much, but it was still a very enjoyable hour, and we finally got a little back story on Miles.
While last week gave us struggles for political power, religion vs. government, the new improved John Locke, the new but somehow slightly used Benjamin Linus, a fresh riddle to ponder and a peek at Smokie’s crib, this week provided us a look inside a character we knew next to nothing about, and we got to explore some of his Daddy Issues.
Of course we can’t fairly compare an episode like ‘Some Like it Hoth’ with ‘Dead is Dead.’ It’s like comparing apples to oranges, or to take a cue from the last night’s title, it would be like comparing the blue milk Luke Skywalker drank on Tatooine with that granola bar/taquito thing Luke Skywalker ate on Dagobah. They’re both tasty in their way, but found on entirely different grocery aisles.

The Real Housewives Of Orange County Wouldn’t Settle For This
For the ex-wife of a doctor, Mrs. Chang didn’t get much in the way of alimony, although the place did come with it’s own microwave oven. The apartment manager isn’t supposed to let kids in, but for two months in advance, Mr. Crotchety is willing to look the other way. Perhaps Lil Miles learned his code of questionable ethics from this crusty complex chief.
No sooner has the bargain been struck than the precocious child is making friends with the neighbors ‘ well the dead ones anyway.
Lil Miles is ‘called’ to apartment number 4 (as in the first of the mysterious numbers) and finds a hidden key beneath the white rabbit (as in Alice in Wonderland and the famous experimental white bunnies) and he lets himself into the late Mr. Vonner’s sad pad. Now, I know this episode was supposed to target Miles’ problems with the fact his father abandoned him as an infant, but I’m telling you right now, his mom ain’t gonna win to many Mother of the Year trophies either. The woman finds her impressionable son conversing with a lifeless corpse inside this squalid residence – and then she signs the rental agreement? Surely there’s an apartment complex somewhere in the Los Angeles Valley area with less dead bodies for young boys to play with’. Eh, scratch that. I guess that place is as good as any other.

Can You Get Milk From My Nipples Miles?
Sawyer/LaFleur no sooner talks Miles into erasing the surveillance tapes than Horace busts into the room before Miles had a chance to comply with SawFleur’s request. Now Miles has joined Gaylord Focker inside Dharma’s Circle of Trust. I sure hope he doesn’t try to get milk from Horace’s nipples.
Man that Radzinsky is wound tight. I mean, I know he’s in a forbidden part of the island, but the guy is just itching to shoot someone, and I get the sense he may get his chance soon. Anyway, Miles shows up, and Radzinsky has a couple goons bring out the body of a freshly dead Dharmite named, Alvarez. They load him in the back of the van. Miles is confused as to how a man can die from an internally punctured skull, while digging a ditch and since Radzinsky is not giving up any secrets, Miles goes straight to the source. He finds dead ditch-diggers are way less anal than the living breathing Heads of Research.

Okay so is it me, or has anyone else thought that it is possible that Stuart Radzinsky and Mikhail Bakunin (the patch guy that died in the looking glass) could possibly be the same person?

Written on 11th April

Don’t know if this was already confirmed, or anyone has ever said anything about it, but does anyone think that the “Adam and Eve” skeletons from S1 were Bernard and Rose? After the flaming arrow attack they took shelter in the caves, and after so many time travels they just couldn’t take it like Charlotte, and after time their bodies just decomposed.

Any thoughts?
