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 – Happily Ever After [spoilers, duh]

Thoughts:

  • So, Desmond is apparently surviving catastrophic electromagnetic event guy. Widmore needs to know if he can do it again, because it looks like there will be one more gigantic electromagnetic explosion on The Island, with Desmond having to make the sacrifice [stay on The Island and cause said explosion while everyone else is ferried via sub to The Hydra?] that Widmore spoke of
  • What exactly did that test do to Desmond? Remove him from his consciousness?
  • Written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. Of course it was. Clearly they get dibs on Desmond episodes
  • Was that painting with the black and white scales always there in Widmore’s office o_O ?
  • “Consciousness-altering love”
  • How the hell does Charlie know to “show” Desmond? Did he try and re-create that Looking Glass event, which triggered his memory?
  • WHAT was with that look Eloise gave Desmond when she first saw him?
  • Is Eloise another Constant? Some kind of time/balance/force keeper? It feels like the Eloise we saw in ‘Flashes Before Your Eyes’ is the same one, thoughts, consciousness and all, that we’re seeing in this episode
  • “Ready for what?!” Why can’t he see the list?
  • Are the other flash sideways losties going to experience visions of their alternate lives, like Charlie, Desmond and Faraday? Or will they not experience them because they were on The Island at the time of the nuke detonation?
  • Seems like Widmore pretty much re-created The Swan failsafe event, allowing Desmond’s consciousness to become dislodged again
  • Whatever Eloise thought Desmond wasn’t ready for with seeing that list, it looks like he’s going to do the same thing with the losties after he gets that manifest

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

Damon Lindelof to LOST fans on the finale: “PLEASE DON’T SPOIL YOURSELF”

I listened to TheODI’s podcast / interview with Damon Lindelof just now, and that monologue in the last minute from Damon was absolutely amazing, and every LOST fan should listen to it! I’m going to transcribe it, because that’s how much I loved it. It will have a lot less impact without Damon saying it, but, /shrug

All I will say is, especially to people who gravitate towards spoilers, you might really really really be tempted to feel you deserve to know what the ending of the show is before you watch it on May 23. And the reason that you’re probably feeling that way is, because you DON’T trust us. Because, you feel like, “I need to protect myself in case i’m disappointed”. But i will say, that, YOU, have an opportunity that no one else is going to have after May 23 once DVDs come out and it’s out there in the world, which is, to honestly and actually be part of the final episode of the show, as its broadcast in many places around the world, simultaneously, so you’ll probably be watching the show, relatively the same time as another 20 million people, and I ask you as a favour to the show, not because you owe it, PLEASE DON’T SPOIL YOURSELF. Let yourself experience the ending of the show without knowing what’s going to happen. Please.

AMEN to that.

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.

Media_httpiimgurcomoa_sawpq

Thoughts:

  • 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

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 – Dr. Linus [spoilers, duh]

Thoughts:

  • 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]

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?
