Written 7th April
If you are a hardcore fan then you definitely love easter eggs as much as I do, the last couple of episodes haven’t had that many but this one sure does (and I will omit the glaring fact that desmond isnt wearing a wedding ring, now even though he was in LAX, b/c that is being done to death, but I will say I personally dont think it is a contunity error and leave it at that).
1. The numbers strike again, twice, the flight arrived at 10:42 at gate 8 and the lugguage was on carousel 4 (well if you want to get technical that makes thrice but like whom, only jerks use thrice)
2. Now what I find strange is desmond gets to ponder his reflection in a mirror twice in this epsiode, once at arrival screen and again airport courthouse
3.Widmore had a paining of scale with one black stone and one white stone in his office
4. Also note a the sailboat in Widmore’s office (quick aside isn’t it weird that they killed off Libby like right before Desmond returned, if the actress had decided to stay that reveal would have been AWESOME in my opinion)
5. This is for ADayAFar, I definitely think that they gave Penny the last name of Milton as a shout out to John Milton, the author of Paradise Lost
6. Daniel says he took the physics equations he wrote to a friend who was a math whiz at Cal Tech. In the online experience of Lost, it was revealed that Thomas Mittelwerk, a chief of technology for the Hanso Foundation who overthrew Alvar Hanso to take over the group that helped create the DHARMA Initiative, went to Cal Tech.
7. Daniel thinks HE already denoted a bomb, half right, huh, is that really the cause of the ALT, are they just going to leave it at that? (They better not!!)
8. Widmore’s team planned to test their machine on a bunny rabbit named Angstrom. Bunnies are frequently seen on Lost, and Dr. Marvin Candle used one in his experiments from the DHARMA videos. Also, “Rabbit” Angstrom is the name of the main character in four novels by John Updike: Rabbit, Run, Rabbit Redux, Rabbit Is Rich, Rabbit at Rest.
I could give you a few more obvious ones but I wont bore you to death. So as always a little food for thought.
I have a few more things to note though:
1. How come Daniel gets a happy family and can play his beloved piano (did he finally get to MAKE time for it?) and Penny is the step/half child, Penny was put through hell between having daddy issues and Desmond breaking her heart and all? Daniel unethically experimented on a human (his girlfriend at that, I know, Juilette experimented on her sister but her sister did have cancer and had looked death in the eye). I guess maybe having your parents conspire to knowingly kill you outranks absenteeism and obsessive control issues.

I dedicate this post to Chief, I am in one of your moods….
I feel let down by the writers after watching Ab Aeterno. I feel like they placated the fans by simply regurgitated the most popular fan theory about Richard’s orgins. At least they didnt do the ancient egyptian pharoh thing.
I also feel like that is the reason they decided to go with flash sideways, to split the difference between those that wanted an ALT and those who didnt. I mean come on these are the genuises who thought Nikki and Paulo would be awesome only to write them out seven episodes later, what a waste (and total bs that Sawyer kept saying, ‘Who are you?’).
I mean they waste space with charcters like Charlotte, but kill off Mr, Ecko (they could have come to an arrangement) and dropped the Walt story ( I mean the island does travel through time and space and even Locke said he saw Walt, only taller, it could have worked ) and now we have allowed them to make John Locke (the only hope I had left) into the smoke monster/MIB (they didnt even tell the actor until he was filming his scene after they dumped him out of the box and into the sand).
I thought that Sayid would be long dead after he rigged the bomb (there was nothing else electronic to fix and no one else to torture). Hurley (although he is loved by many, his episodes are notorious for simply being filler or maybe comic relief). I think they had planned to kill him off which is why they introduced us to Miles, whose abilities have DECREASED since we first met him (think about it). They also (although I can not prove it for sure, stole the whole Juliet/Sawyer thing from some fan fiction that got a little buzz over on Dark UFO).
I dont feel this season has been on par with stimulating intellectual debates either. I just needed to hrt this off my chest.
Feel free to disagree or comiserate.

I don’t like to call people out, but yes this a direct reference to the post, “Ttitles Tell the Tale”. If you dont want to be spoiled then please dont read it.
During seasons 4 and 5 I lived for all things spoiler related. But then I decided that I would try my hand at theories and felt that spoilers in a way would be cheating, and as of season 6 I have avoided them like the plague. I dont even watch the stupid little preview clips at the end of the show anymore. I dont want to know the titles and I dont want to know the centric character. I like to be surprised so I can enjoy this final ride.
I mean if you are a true Lost fan, then you have always known that the titles tell the tale, they give you clues and subtle meanings and even enforce a lot the themes that occur in Lost. Take for instance, White Rabbit, if one has read Alice in Wonderland, then one would think, maybe someone is chasing something that really isnt there but that something helps a person to find the starting point on the journey of self-discovery.
As for duality, meany titles have also had the reciprocal such as:
One of them v. One of us or The Constant v. The Variable.
Some titles give away centric info such as:
Everybody Hates Hugo
Born to Run (Kate runs)
The Long Con (Sawyer cons)
Another thing, this isnt a spoiler site at all, there is no easter egg section or a spoiler section, just theories, debate, questions and general chat, so what would possess someone to post something like that on here I have no idea but I guess the admin who runs this site didnt have a porblem with but I do and this is my little rant
So my question to you is this,
as the title states: What does spoiler mean to you?

This is a ridiculously fleeting thought I had during the Lighthouse ep, I’m sharing it here even though I’ve been told it’s crazy, JUST in case someone out there has the same thought… 😀
I think the Lighthouse ep was very important in terms of foreshadowing, though we didn’t get a huge pile of answers. I was paying attention to Hurley the most, not only because Jacob is in contact with him, but also because writers tend to give important lines to comic characters. But then I also noticed something Kate said that stood out.
The scene I’m thinking about is when Hugo is taking Jack to the Lighthouse and they run into Kate by the river. Kate immediately puts up her gun and Jack puts up his hands. She says something along the lines of, “Jack… I almost killed you”. And they both laugh it off. It’s kind of a throwaway line, but it’s the kind of thing that stuck with me. In a minor way, I saw it foreshadowed her joining the side opposite to Jack and possibly killing/hurting him. Now we see in Sundown that Kate is tagging along with MIB’s team, and presumably Jack is on Jacob’s team.
I try my best not to pay attention to stuff Lindelof/Cuse during any kind of hiatus because 1) obviously they’re careful not to reveal anything and 2) they tend to lie. 🙂 But someone sent me one of those articles where they were talking about the finale and Lindelof/Cuse said that Lost fans will be angry, things won’t end happily ever after for the Losties (though that was a given), and there will be “how could you do that” reactions. Plus, it’s been revealed that Matthew Fox is privy to the final image.
This could mean a lot of things, but I’ve thought for awhile one of our more beloved, long-standing Losties needs to be killed off, someone like Jack (yes Locke is “dead” but he’s still around per se, hehe). What more shocking way to kill off Jack than Kate killing him?

Lost fans with tons of disposable cash and some free time January 30th, take note: Lost season six will premiere at Sunset on The Beach’s 30 foot screen in Waikiki, a source at ABC confirmed to me just hours ago. This will not be the first time Lost has kicked off at the outdoor theater — in fact, island bound Lost fans got an early peek through seasons 1, 2, and 3, but the season 4 event was eventually canceled, and a season 5 event became the victim of the tremendous reach of that whole economic nosedive. Happy days are here again.
Past events have seen the entire cast and several key crew members appearing live to chit chat with fans prior to the showing. Typically, the event starts around 4pm with some food and entertainment, leading up to the presentation of Lost shortly after dusk. So far, there has been no official information from the Sunset at The Beach folk.

What about the kids role in Season 6?
Aaron, Charlie, Ji Yeon, Walt, possibly Clementine and a long shot in Julian.
Parents want to give their children a better life than their own – via the lessons they’ve learned from the mistakes they’ve made, the wisdom acquired from simply living. Children = PROGRESS, at least in an ideal world.
If Flight 815 doesn’t crash – Aaron gets adopted (without the potential “specialness” from being born on the island) – Charlie, Ji Yeon, and potentially Julian are never born – Walt might not develop his “specialness” – and I’m not for sure of the implications for Clementine…
So if Flight 815 does land at LAX – the only kids who would exist would be:
Aaron, Walt, and Clementine.
What do you think it means? How do all the kids fit into the bigger picture? Have at it…

I don’t believe the “Incident” was the detonation of Jughead.

After John Locke (who some believe is actually possessed by the smoke monster/ the man in black) convinces Ben to actually kill Jacob, before Jacob is kicked into the fire he whispers “they’re coming.” Who’s actually coming and if they are coming, will we find out in Season 6? Anyway does anyone have any theories as to who

What Time period do you want to/think we will see more of next season?
Personally, I want to see more about the island when it was just the natives… of course I don’t know when exactly that was. The last two seasons have been about Scientists, so we’re due for
an Others centric season.

Just a fun “what if….”
On the assumption that Anti-Jacob can assume the identity of any dead person…..
What if (in Season 6) we see a circa 1977 segment in which Whitmore dies…. That would leave the door open for Anti-Jacob to have been representing him for almost the entire series.
I guess this is less of a theory, and more of a “What if” designed to promote Conversation and interesting discussion 🙂

Alright, I have a theory I kind of randomly came up with. It’s not one of my expected theories, just an idea I had. Tell me what you think.
OK, first there’s Jacob and Rival. Obviously, they aren’t normal. Instead, they are part of some superior race that live on the Island, somewhat akin to the elves in LOTR. Like the elves, they never age, and are incredibly wise. However, these people have slight telepathic powers; they can subtly influence people’s thoughts. Also, their immorality has a condition; you can’t take the life of another one of them. Finally, also like the elves, they look down on humans. Most of them despise humans, and don’t want them on the Island. Jacob, however, if different. He believes that humans do have good, and if he brings people to the Island they will eventually show it. The first few times, they attack. This is the reason for Rival’s comment about coming and destroying. Then comes the Black Rock. Somehow, either on purpose or accident, the dynamite from the Black Rock destroys all of this race except for Jacob and Rival, who is critically injured. When Rival passes out, Jacob takes him and discovers he came never survive in the same form. So Jacob turns Rival into the Smoke Monster. When Rival regains consciousness and sees himself, he becomes even more enraged at Jacob. However, he knows he still can’t kill him.
Years upon years later, John Locke comes onto the scene. When Smokie (Rival) sees him, he realizes that he is special (which Jacob had already realized a few years before). Taking advantage of that, he disguises as Christian and causes Locke to turn the FDW. Once he’s done that, he uses his telepathy to make Ben kill Locke and bring him back to the Island. Finally, he takes the form of Locke to visit Jacob and have Ben kill him.
This brings us to the Incident. Jack drops the bomb, and Juliet detonates it, shoving the electromagnetism back down for 108 minutes and rocketing the Pasties back to the future, where they meet Rival, Ben, and dying Jacob. Then Jack gets into a big argument w/ Rival for killing Jacob, and Rival tells Ben to kill Jack. Ben fails, and Jack begins treating Jacob’s wounds. Beyond that, I don’t know, but I think Locke will be really resurrected at some point, and Rival will die.
