But Feb. 2 is Groundhog Day
Let’s understand something about the Season 6 premiere, February 2, 2009. The producers could have chosen the prime time slot from any mid-week day. The question is, did they chose to air the last season’s episodes on Tuesdays, or did they choose to air the premiere on Feb. 2?
If you haven’t seen the 1993 film Groundhog Day, read about it here . In short, Bill Murray relives the same day of his life until he gets it right.
Sound familiar? Was that not the whole purpose of detonating the bomb, to relive a particular day in the survivor’s lives? What does the idea of living the same day over and over say about the previously vented timeloop theories?
After Season 1, each premiere has delivered a reveal almost immediately.
Season 2 – There’s a person in the hatch!
Season 3 – There’s a civilized village with cookies, book clubs and indoor plumbing on the island!
Season 4 – Hurley and 5 others made it off the island!
Season 5 – Farraday was on the island during Dharma time!
My prediction is that we learn of some Groundhog Day timeloop late on Groundhog Eve.
Season 6 – Someone’s reliving a day/period of time in their lives?
So, what do you think, is it just another Tuesday, or does Groundhog Day mean something?
Pretty appropriate that the season dubbed to have all the answers begins with a small hint and a big question.
