LOST – Across The Sea [spoilers, duh]

Can you say “mythology overload”? Then, add one, multiply it by infinity and square it. Good. Lord.

Thoughts:

  • Jacob and MiB are Twins!
  • Allison Janney as Jacob and MiB’s “mother”? Inspired casting. She was amazing, and ever so creepy at first.
  • So that kid MiB saw in the jungle WAS a young Jacob
  • “They come, they fight, they destroy, they corrupt, and it always ends the same” This was Janney’s reasoning for killing those that came to The Island. This would imply that she WOULDN’T want others coming to The Island, and she made that clear to Jacob and MiB, so why is Jacob bringing people to The Island? Purely to find a successor? Isn’t he jeopardising The Island by giving MiB the chance to leave? Not like he can die or anything.
  • “Because a little bit of this same light is inside of every Man, but they always wan’t more…and if the light goes out here, it goes out everywhere” So what is this “light”? “Goodness”? Jacob? The Guardian, whoever that may be? We’ve heard the other side of this story already,with the wine/cork analogy, which was all about “The Darkness” [MiB] being contained within The Island, and if that gets out, it spreads
  • everywhere
  • “One day, you can make up your own game, and everyone else will have to follow the rules” He sure did take that to heart
  • MiB created the Frozen Donkey Wheel! Although it wasn’t so frozen back in the day
  • “It’s a wheel. We’re going to attach that wheel to a system, a system that channels the water and the light, and then I’m going to turn it, and when I do, I’ll finally be able to leave this place” Why can’t MiB turn it in present day? Obviously someone finished building The Wheel, no doubt due to him, so why not use it? Why did he have to get Locke to turn it? Is it because he isn’t inhabiting a real body?
  • “life, death, rebirth, it’s the source, the heart of the island…promise me you won’t go down there…it’d be worse than dying Jacob, much worse” Does that mean MiB is bound to The Island?
  • What was in that cup? MiB’s blood? Janney’s blood? Water from that pool in The Temple?
  • Who woulda thunk that Backgammon scene in season 1 between Locke and Walt would be replayed over and over in so many different ways? Jacob and MiB were playing Senet apparently , an old Egyptian board game, possibly the oldest board game in the world. The name means “game of passing”
  • Where did Janney come from? That I don’t think we’ll ever find out, due to the whole, “you’ll only find out what mysteries are important to the characters on the show” I think I’ve come to accept this
  • SHE caused that massacre at MiB’s camp?! o_O
  • *sound of knife into flesh* *jumps from chair*
  • ADAM AND EVE = MiB and his mother! NO ONE would’ve picked that!
  • And so Smokey was born, via Jacob of all people. What happened when MiB was thrown in there? Did the “light” get corrupted and turn into “darkness”?
  • Damon and Carlton made it unequivocally clear last week that MiB was the evil one, but you can’t say MiB was wrong with his “my mother was a terrible person” line a few eps ago
  • I just asked a lot of questions…

The LOST Underground Art Project

I remember seeing Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear a while ago and wanting to buy every single piece on there, but what I didn’t realise was that Gallery1988 actually had an exhibition, and the multitude of other artwork that was on show, with the overarching name for all of this being The LOST Underground Art Project.

Thank you so much to The LOST Underground Art Show for providing an exhaustive gallery [with info on each piece], which has resulted in a cheesy grin being plastered all over my face for the last 20 minutes while I scrolled through it all slowly.

Here are some of my favourites [click each image to embiggen]…
