My last theory cos it’s the End of an Era
Now that we’re in the last week of Lost, I thought the best way for me to say my goodbyes is to give one last theory about my thoughts on the show. Usually I study my theories and actually have a solid point but this one is just a random uneducated guess and doesn’t focus on one sole point or theory just all over the place random thoughts. I’m a fan who doesn’t need all the questions answered in the show, just enough to leave me satisfied and able to comprehend at least most of what is going on. But I also don’t want to be spoon-fed and have all the answers pushed haphazardly into the finale. So I have also added a wee list (lol u can tell I’m Scottish with the ‘wee’ huh?) of questions/mysteries I have in my head and hopefully at least these ones will get answered in the last two and a half hours still to go. Fingers crossed.
PS-I’m quite emotional typing this and it’s definitely the End of an Era for me 🙁
Anyways here goes…
Having watched Across the Sea, a thing that stood out to me was when Jacob says to Mother “you always preferred ‘him’,” as in MIB, and she replies with something like ‘yes but it was you all along and I know that now’. Well I was trying to relate this somehow to our Losties, and how even though we are getting the list of candidates narrowed down to a mere few, people are believing Jack to be the candidate, especially when Sayid says ‘it’s going to be you Jack ‘. I have this feeling that there is going to be some big twist in the story that turns out that Jack is not the chosen candidate but someone else like Sawyer or Hurley turns out to be the One, or Desmond, or even Kate though she is not a candidate, and Jacob realises this at the last possible point. I have no evidence to back this up and only came up with this theory cos I rewatched Across the Sea so many times that I started to think too much into it all. Please feel free to rubbish my guess but as this is my last ever theory I’m hoping at least something I have said here or in my past theories might come true. Here’s hoping lol.
Okay so now for things I would like to be answered. I’m sure that the more important theories such as the Alternate Timeline and the Candidacy will be answered and this is why I have only theorised on the smaller things as the two big ones have been debated over and over and it’s just a little over my head. I have made a list of things I would like to see answered and have put next to them my mini theory that are really not well studied so sorry for errors on my part.
First of all Walt. Let’s face it Walt is special. Sure some of the Losties have special powers (seeing the dead etc) but Walt just had something special about him from the start. The electromagnetism thing he has I think can be related to the Islands properties and a bit like Desmond’s power. I think looking back on his backgammon conversation when Locke told him a secret, there is something definitely special about Walt and I would like to know why he is special and also what the secret Locke told him and also why he didn’t need to return to the Island. I have no guesses on this one as it’s still a freaking mystery to me.
Vincent is my fave character in Lost. After smoky turned out to be the MIB, a lot of people speculated that Vincent was spy for MIB or even one of his apparitions. I believe he is a normal dog and that dogs have the ability to sense things that are not seen/felt by humans, and that he was guided or manipulated by either the man in black or Jacob. As he was more than coincidently present at lots of major scenes in the first few seasons. I also hope that Vincent lives happily ever after, even if our Losties don’t.
Pregnancy issues may have always been a small issue but I think maybe Jughead happened to mess about with the fertility of the inhabitants after the 70’s. Or as I have theorised ever since the Incident where we saw Jacob and MIB, that the problems are in that a Woman’s immune system attacks baby, whereas guys sperm rate is increased. Could this represent the power struggle of MIB and Jacob on the Island?
I would like to find out more about Miles, Frank, Rose and Widmore and Eloise as I feel their stories have not been fully answered. I don’t have any theories about them individually but I think that they are just pawns in the in the game and when their ‘job’ is done we will see them briefly in redshirts before they go BOOM! Lol
I would like to find out what the Hurley bird was and if it was real or MIB apparition. Or maybe Jacob? Whatever it was it was a cool looking bird! And what’s with the ashes? How can they protect against Smoky, and who do they belong to? Not Jacobs ones the first ones used at the Cabin and by Illana and her team? Maybe they belonged to another protector; don’t think its Mothers though cos she is skeleton in cave. Maybe one that won’t be answered who knows? Also on this note who was Illana? I think she was just sought out by Jacob at young age to fulfil her purpose on the Island and she saw him as father figure cos he was always in her life when she was younger.
Also why is Aaron special? Why did psychic say different things to Claire? I think he was sought out by Jacob in a way to change his mind so it meant that Claire got on Oceanic flight. Just another move in the game by Jacob I believe.
Lastly, Kate and why she isn’t a candidate? This is the only one where I have went over it in my head any haven’t been able to pan out a theory as to why she is not a candidate. I hope it gets answered and I hope it was not in front of our faces all along cos then I will be kicking myself.
Anyways that’s all folks and thanks for the best Lost theory page on the Web. Would like to add that this website wouldn’t have been the same without everyone, especially A.E.S, dabiatchishere and Highbrow who remind me of the American idol judges. One is nice to everyone, one gives his knowledge of the subject in depth, and the other just hates everyone lol x not saying who is who but I love u all and u and others have made the website what it is. Thanks to Admin who has run a great site. All the best and hope u all like this x x x
