The Last Battle
I read a post at L-T.com a while ago that discussed similarities between Lost and The Chronicles of Narnia. I didn’t mention this at the time because I’ve only just thought about it.
In The Last Battle there is a stable, and at the end of the book Alsan and the children and animals all enter this stable and they enter another Narnia. A much more larger Narnia. Infact, the real Narnia.
I’m comparing the stable to that of Jacob’s cabin. Now, I’m not saying that when you enter the cabin you enter another world, but I’m thinking there is something magical about it. We’ve seen the cabin appear in different places on the island, what if it has the abilities to transport you to another part of the island?
As The Last Battles stable takes you to another world, Jacobs cabin takes you to another place on the island.
Another thought about this book is, there is an ape and a donkey. (No, no, I’m not comparing them to Ben and Locke 😉 ). The donkey thinks the ape is his friend but the ape merely uses the donkey for his own needs (hmm, maybe I am? 😉 ). One day they stumble upon a dead lion and use its skin to trick the people of Narnia. The ape makes the donkey wear the skin to pretend he is Aslan (Aslan hasn’t been around for 1000s of years so no one knows what he looks like).
The prank works and the ape ends up making the people of Narnia slaves via the donkeys orders. Eventually, the donkey gets fed up with the prank and wants out, but the ape traps him in the stable and won’t let him out.
The donkey is trapped in the stable and the people on the outside think he is Aslan, the ruler of Narnia.
There is someone trapped in the cabin and the people on the outside think he is Jacob. Maybe.
Obviously, the LOST writers are unique and aren’t going to outright copy stories from other people, but the similarities were too good not to write down.
I don’t really believe that what I’ve just written will happen in the show, but I thought it would be good for discussion.
