LOST – The Last Recruit [spoilers, duh]

Thoughts:

  • Confirmed: MiB can take on the appearance of only those that are dead, and on The Island
  • Confirmed: Flocke = Christian Shephard. WHAT THE FRAK? NO. CHRISTIAN SHEPHARD != FLOCKE. HOW CAN THAT BE? >.< See my theory on why this can’t be. Reading this again, an additional argument in my favour was the scene when “Christian Shephard’ appears on the freighter to Michael; how could that be, if Flocke cannot leave The Island?
  • “Because Jacob chose you, you were trapped on this island, before you even got here”
  • Does Flocke actually need The Candidates to get off The Island? Why? All he seemingly needs to do is kill them
  • “John Locke was not a believer, Jack. He was a sucker”. Wow, way to devalue Locke’s 4.5 seasons of faith in The Island and Jacob
  • Sun recognised Flocke in the flash sideways, I assume
  • Sayid can’t have killed Desmond. What does that mean though? Did Desmond tell him something to stop him from killing him, or is Sayid not as evil as Flocke thinks he is?
  • I’m impressed on the casting of mini Jack Shephard¬†
  • “We’re done going back, Kate” Yeh, haven’t heard that before! See you there in two eps, Sawyer
  • Jack Shephard. The last recruit
  • Am I the only one that expected Shannon to show up? @marawlings has pretty much convinced me that he’ll choose Shannon, and not Nadia, for whatever reason. She’ll be in the next episode
  • And speaking of the next episode, according to DarkUFO, there’s a hiatus next week

LOST – Everybody Loves Hugo [spoilers, duh]

Thoughts:

  • Michael! I’ve missed you!
  • Hugo gets his first date. Awww. “you don’t remember me do you?… Island… Plane crash.” What the frak? Is there really some connection with dead people being aware of what happened on The Island in the flash sideways?
  • Oh snap! *boom* goes Ilana. Guess she wasn’t important then… Seems like a lot of time invested in her for no reason
  • What’s with the smug look, kid? This kid must be the higher power that “cast” Jacob and/or MiB in their roles on The Island.
  • The Whispers. Explained. Tick that off the list. People stuck on The Island because of what they did/their “sins”. “The ones who can’t move on”. Feels like I need to revisit every ep with The Whispers and look for appearances which i previously thought were Smokey
  • Really? “love” is the trigger? Feels like a bit of a cop out… Ok, love and car crashes! Or any sort of, what, trauma?
  • So, Locke’s facial expression changed, and it felt like he had that moment of realisation, but did his eyes change colour? @marawlings has been going on about this eye colour thing for the whole season. Will need to re-watch.
  • There was NO mirror scene in this ep as far as I can tell

LOST – The Package [spoilers, duh]

Was this episode going to be anything but a disappointment compared to ‘Ab Aeterno’? Sadly, it lived up to its expectations.

Thoughts:

  • “The only way we can leave The Island, is if all the names that haven’t been crossed off, go together” Is this just BS by MiB, or does he actually not need to kill them?
  • The Sickness leads to your emotions disappearing?
  • Why aren’t they married in the sideways? It’s freaking me out more and more that nearly all of the original Oceanic 815 losties ended up on that plane in the Flash Sideways only to not crash on The Island, when seemingly, the only reason they were on that plane in the first place was because Jacob wanted them on there, to crash on The Island
  • Does the fact that Jin seemed to make it extremely clear that he was a Kwon and Sun was a Paik influence on-island events, re: the Kwon candidate?
  • And there we go again, with the frakn long stare into the mirror by Sun. I’m going to screenshot every one of these from the season soon.
  • Room 23!
  • Why are Zoe and co. looking for the pockets of energy? Is that how they’re going to destroy MiB? Or will there be another Frozen Donkey Wheel reset? Or maybe they’ll just destroy the thing.
  • Poor Mikhail, destiny’s a real bitch
  • “A wise man once said that war is coming to this island. I think it just got here” Is Flocke just playing back what Widmore told him, or did someone else actually say that?
  • What did Widmore’s team do while everyone was tranquilised?
  • Ok, The Package is a person, but again, not sure how Desmond comes into play >.< Maybe it’s the fact that he seemingly operates around the normal rules that apply on The Island

LOST – Recon [spoilers, duh]

I’m frankly shocked by the reaction over at DarkUFO to this week’s ep; it’s my favourite of the season.

Thoughts:

  • Sawyer as a cop, ey? There is some event that is acting like a tipping point for all the losties in these flash sideways. Is it the NON-involvement of Jacob, due to him being dead at the time of the “reset”?
  • “LaFleur” ?! Surely not a coincidence…
  • Pierre Chang works at a museum!
  • “They think they’re protecting The Island from me when all I want to do is leave” – Flocke. Still don’t understand the endgame
  • Flocke sounded exactly like Ben re: recon instructions
  • Take THAT, Claire! *cheers at Flocke*
  • Who told The Others to build that runway? Was it MiB, so he could return as Flocke and have the plane land on something so that it could be used to get off The Island, or Jacob, so the candidates could return?
  • Ok, ANOTHER LONG STARE into a mirror by the character involved in the main flash sideways story? Answering why this is happening will probably answer why the two timelines exist
  • MiB has mommy issues. A “crazy mother” like Aaron has. Was MiB was born here?
  • What’s behind that padlocked door? Aaron? Desmond? Bring-back-Jacob-to-life kit?
  • So is Widmore on Jacob’s side, since he wants to kill MiB?
  • Damon and Carlton must have heard about Azaria Chamberlain and replaced “Dingo” with “The Others” re: Claire

LOST – Sundown [spoilers, duh]

Thoughts:

  • First impressions. Almost seems like this should’ve been aired consecutively with the next one as a two part episode
  • After The Cliffside Cave and The Lighthouse, this ep was relatively light on mythology
  • Where the hell is / what the frak happened to Sawyer?
  • MiB has Sayid, Sawyer and Claire. Possibly Kate, considering where she ended up at the end of the ep
  • Jacob has Hurley… and Jack?
  • What’s the deal with what / who can keep Smokey out? I thought it was the ash, but I doubt there was any surrounding The Temple, and it was instead Dogen.
  • Do Jacob and MiB have certain parts of The Island they can inhabit?
  • MiB is now “free”, so why’s he taking people along for the ride? Does he need another proxy [living], to leave The Island? Or is he just plain evil? That killing spree at The Temple did seem excessive.
  • What’s MiB going to do with all those suckers people?
  • Keamy makes some mean eggs
  • MiB details confirmed: takes the form of someone dead [on-island]  that you know
  • Would Sayid actually have killed him if he didn’t let Flocke blurt out that greeting?
  • I don’t get why Lapidus is there
  • What are the chances we’ll get an Ilana backstory, because she sure as hell knows a lot?

LOST – On-Island Christian Shephard != Smokey/Flocke

This thought has been whirling around in my mind ever since I re-watched seasons 4 & 5 of LOST, and last week’s ep [Lighthouse] seemingly added another layer of affirmation. Since I wrote out my theory in a rant-worthy fashion on Google Buzz, during a discussion with @snarkle, I thought I may as well regurgitate it here.

Note: Smokey = Smoke Monster = MiB = Fake Locke = Flocke

Jacob’s Cabin/Circle of ash¬†
The cicle of ash around Jacob’s Cabin is an anti-Smokey mechanism. So, if Smokey’s roaming around the island, the on-island Christian Shephard inside that cabin John Locke sees surely cannot be Smokey.¬†

Claire/Lighthouse

Two quotes from “Lighthouse” sum things up, where Claire seems to make a clear distinction between her father [on-island Christian Shephard] and her friend.

“First my father told me, and then my friend told me” – Claire, when explaining to Jin how she’s so sure The Others have her baby

“That’s not John. This is my friend” – Claire, at the end of the episode when Flocke walks into her camp

What ruins the theory

There’s just one scene that’s stuck with me that ruins this theory. In “Something Nice Back Home”, Jack, working at St. Sebastian hospital hears the smoke alarm beeping and then sees Christian Shephard. At the time, that smoke alarm going off meant only one thing to me, which sort of ruins the theory that they’re separate entities. Unless… there are two Smoke Monsters…

Smokey Candidates

If the two are separate entites, what does it mean? It’s only fair that if Jacob has his candidates, Smokey should be allowed to have some of his own too. Is this what Christian Shephard and Claire Littleton are?

We haven’t seen Claire doing too much for Smokey, but Christian certainly has:

  • Led Claire away from Aaron [to Smokey?]
  • Seen sitting with Claire in Jacob’s Cabin
  • Crucial in making John Locke believe he had to sacrifice himself, off-island, which I believe was needed for Smokey to take his form when he returned in the coffin
  • Told Sun to wait for John Locke [who was Flocke at this point]

UPDATE:

In retrospect, all I needed to say was, Smokey cannot leave The Island. Jack seeing Christian Shephard in “Something Nice Back Home” either disproves this fact [of which a 0% chance exists], or this is a plot hole.
