LOST – The Candidate [spoilers, duh]

This… this was a weird episode, well, to summarise anyway. Theories and speculation kinda went out the window, and stuff just HAPPENED. @warlach and @marawlings were on the money with their tweets >.<


  • Wow. That first glimpse of Anthony Cooper sent chills up my spine
  • Did Locke plant that C4? Didn’t look it, but why else would Widmore rig the plane? Is he in cahoots with him? Where the hell did he get it from, otherwise?
  • Jack didn’t need that “little push” this time around to get the Apollo Bar; is that symbolic of a Jacob free world?
  • Sayid tells Jack to go save Desmond, but tells Jack that he’s “the one”; is he The Candidate? Surely.
  • *BOOM* goes Sayid 
  • Sun and Jin die together. Thank you for ending it in Korean.
  • Lapidus gone too? If not, what the hell is he still doing on that island?
  • Screw you, Sawyer!
  • Once again, Terry O’Quinn knocking that Flash Sideways scene with Jack out of the park
  • Ok, so, MiB is 99% evil, as of the end of this episode. Obviously I am now expecting a MiB/Jacob backstory that will once again flip things on its head
  • Three characters from season 1, episode 1, gone in minutes. I think it’s safe to say LOST just kicked into ending mode

    LOST – Dr. Linus [spoilers, duh]


    • Locke to Ben [off-island] : “Just sounds like you care about this place. And if the man in charge doesn’t, maybe it’s time for a change” Parallels much? Does Jacob actually care about The Island?
    • Ben and his dad still went to The Island as part of The Dharma Initiative! But why the hell did they leave…?
    • “Only six [candidates] left”, says Ilana. Who are the fifth and sixth? I count Hurley, Jack, Jin and Sun. Locke, Sawyer and Sayid are lost causes, aren’t they?
    • Jack: “Where’d you come from?” .. Alpert: “You wouldn’t believe me if I told you” What is that supposed to mean?! He can’t take some kind of Smokey form, can he? Or is he always jumping through time?
    • Confirmed: Jacob gave Alpert his eternal life
    • Confirmed: Alpert came to The Island on the Black Rock
    • Whoever’s touched by Jacob can’t die? What about Locke, then?
    • I vaguely remember a scene in season 5 where Sun brings Alpert the photo of some of the losties in the 70’s and he says he watched them all die. That scene is now confusing me for some reason.
    • Widmore = 108? Does that mean Jacob wanted him back?
    • Still no Sawyer. Is he already at The Hydra?

    LOST – Sundown [spoilers, duh]


    • 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 – Lighthouse [spoilers, duh]

    Dear god, questions, questions and more questions.


    • What’s up with the scars/bruises you can’t quite remember, Doc?
    • Was Jacob pouring his own ashes into the pool? Pre-emptive measure against Smokey going for a swim [I assume that’s who’ll be visiting The Temple]?
    • “Clairousseau” sounds about right
    • Adam and Eve still there at least, and Hurley echoing what many people have already theorised
    • Best. Lighthouse. Ever.
    • That’s one impressive mirror right there! Jacob’s “Looking-Glass“? Nice cross-promotion with Alice in Wonderland coming out next week
    • The Numbers! Again! Looks like only 360 numbers can fit on that thing, with quite a few names being crossed out already
    • I swear Kate is Number 51
    • Who’s Number 108?!
    • Who’s David’s mother? Is she Number 108?
    • Seemingly more affirmation that on-island Christian Shephard != Smokey
