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

Executive Producers Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse discuss the rules & why Sawyer didn’t know who Anakin was.

    LOST – The Last Recruit [spoilers, duh]


    • 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 – 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 – What Kate Does [spoilers, duh]

    Another 42 minutes of mind frakking courtesy of LOST.


    • Nice shout out to season 2’s ‘What Kate Did’
    • Was that Smokey repellent, Dojen [the Japanese dude] blew over Sayid?
    • Damon and Carlton don’t want to use “alternate”, but there are two timelines, and they will somehow come together… or so THEY claim
    • “Because it happened to your sister” *boom* … I guess Jacob didn’t take over Sayid, but this is the start of an explanation of what happened to Claire, and at least the evolution of it will be shown through Sayid; two birds, fine with me
    • Doubts in my mind about whether it’s Jacob or the Man in Black that’s actually evil
    • I don’t even know what’s happened to the real Aaron anymore… He’s staying with Clementine? Or Claire’s mum? So confusing >.<
    • Felt a tad like The Matrix with the whole pill thing
    • Dojen was “brought here (The Island) like everyone else” … they sure as hell better explain this!
    • What’s up with all the weirdness around Ajira and Rousseau? That was unsettling.

    I’ll continue to update with DarkUFO and podcast spam as the week goes on.
