LOST – Ab Aeterno [spoilers, duh]

“Ab Aeterno”. Since the beginning of time. I googled it just now, and clearly others have been doing so recently.



  • A LOT of mythology, and one ep that will take several viewings to understand properly
  • The Black Rock destroyed the four-toed statue!
  • If the Black Rock crashed onto The Island, what was that ship we [Jacob & MiB] saw at the end of Season 5?
  • Why did MiB “judge” Richard and let him go? Why does he “judge” people? Does he see them as potential successors? Did he see that Richard had killed someone and wanted him to kill Jacob. Why not use the captain that had just killed four others? Can he only use Jacob’s candidates?
  • “Don’t let him speak…if you do it’s already too late” sounds exactly like Dogen
  • “The Devil took my body” – MiB. What the?
  • The cork / wine bottle analogy was simple enough, and explained things well
  • WHO is Hurley talking to [when he’s talking to Isabella]? I’m going to say that he’s talking to the same thing that’s on-island Christian Shephard. I don’t think it was MiB [I’ve ranted before about how I think they’re two different people]. Surely MiB can’t be there, talking as “Isabella”, and also at the same time project that Smokey sound
  • Twas great seeing Titus Welliver again

St. Luke

Richard was reading chapter 4.


4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

4:7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

The rest of that chapter can be found here, and probably contains loads more info, but I’ll just wait for someone to do all that work for me.


The Official LOST Audio Podcast: March 25th, 2010 (23:26)

Executive Producers Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse discuss “Ab Aeterno” & reveal the title of the finale.

  • Nestor Carbonell will be the spokesperson after the show for an ab-machine called ‘Ab Aeterno: Eternal abs’
    “Are you tired of ageing? Get great abs in six weeks. Act now and get free eyeliner!”
  • The ship we saw at the end of season 5 was the Black Rock
  • Jacob can possibly take other forms
  • Title of the finale: “The End”. Lame, but if it truly does bring the story to a fitting conclusion, I’ll live with it

Lost Slapdown, Part 8

Nestor has an interesting request for Damon and Carlton. Alpert apparently made love to Smokey!

Seriously though, it seems like they’re inferring that on-island Isabelle was Smokey.

    Well, THAT would be an interesting sub-plot too! Smokey in labour, Juliet comes back from the dead to deliver the baby!But yes, I’m having a hard time believing that Isabella was Smokey, due to that sound projection issue. Although, maybe two different forms of Isabella were in that episode. The one at the end telling Richard that he had to destroy the MiB or whatever couldn’t have been Smokey.
