Episode 6x16 / Re: A Summary Of 6 Years Of "Lost"
« on: June 03, 2010, 05:33:15 PM »
I read this on another site.  I think they confirmed that this person did work on Lost for like 3 years as an intern, but wasn't involved in the show at the end.

Honestly, I couldn't get past this when I tried to read it:

Enter Dharma -- which I'm not sure why John is having such a hard time grasping. Dharma, like the countless scores of people that were brought to the island before, were brought there by Jacob as part of his plan to kill the MIB. However, the MIB was aware of this plan and interferred by "corrupting" Ben. Making Ben believe he was doing the work of Jacob when in reality he was doing the work of the MIB. This carried over into all of Ben's "off-island" activities. He was the leader. He spoke for Jacob as far as they were concerned. So the "Others" killed Dharma and later were actively trying to kill Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley and all the candidates because that's what the MIB wanted. And what he couldn't do for himself.
The show never says until the end that Jacob is trying to kill MiB.  I think he was content to simply protect the island - that's just my own interpretation but I think this person is skewing things with his own interpretation.  Regardless....

MiB corrupting Ben?  Not sure I follow this.  From what I think we know, Ben was brought to the temple by Richard after Sayid shot him.  I think its safe to say Ben went for a swim in the fountain.  I don't think the fountain was linked in any way to MiB.  So how else is it that MiB corrupted Ben?  If Ben was corrupted, why wouldn't Jacob simply let it be known to The Others that someone else other than Ben was now in charge?

And when were the Others actively trying to kill the Candidates?  Seriously?  They had numerous opportunities to do so throughout the first several seasons (see the Ring of Fire episode or pretty much the entire time Jack, Sawyer and Kate were held captive - in fact, why then did the Others only have Michael bring them those three people?  Why not all the candidates?).
well the others brought jack so he could work on Ben, Kate to motivate Jack, and Sawyer to motivate Kate.

just saw that it wasn't the writers who put the wreckage in, it was abc. it was just a homage to the pilot and a time so the fans could just sit and think before the local news interrupted

things i am sick of:

1. people posting threads with millions of questions they still had after the finale- i agree that there are about 2 or 3 legitimate questions that could be asked, but when paired together with questions about small things and things that were left up to us to use are brains about... it just makes us the viewers look stupid. I understand that many people have questions and want EVERYTHING that ever happened in all of LOST to be explained, but guess what??? sorry, but its impossible. I side with the writers and what they did to finish the story. i liked what they did and i'm not going to pick apart the finale because micheal wasn't included in the freaking church...

2. people saying they died in the plane crash... this one is indefensible- the writers laid it out nice and freaking clear for us in christian's explanation to Jack. everything that happened on the island happened (what happened, happened.) the "sideways" "purgatory" "alternate" thing happened in no time period because it was OUTSIDE of time. this was also explained by christian. after they all died, they went there to remember and have one last time together before moving on to... wherever. once again, i don't think its worth it to nitpick who was in the church, why ben didn't go in, what about david blah blah blah ultimately you are ruining the ending for yourself. david wasn't real, nobody in that place was even real- it was all made up in their "place" (NOT purgatory)

3. PURGATORY- what that place was not!- is some beliefs, purgatory is where you go to pay off your sins/debts. that is in no way where the characters were at. as i said before, and as christian explained, they were there to remember together. i've heard sooooo many people complain, "the writers said they weren't in purgatory!! THEY LIED TO US!!!" first, they said the island wasn't purgatory, and second... it wasn't.

4. i for one loved the finale. i really enjoyed the way they brought a series that was so near and dear to our hearts to an amazing end. i will miss it. i was especially happy how they paid homage to many great moments in the first season with jack and locke peering down the hole. i'm not one to cry during anything, so when i say i felt chills and got a little choked up at the end, you'll know how great it was. for anyone who was dissapointed, i'm sorry. you and i and all of us here have enjoyed this show for many years, so why be mad at it? at least you had all the good times- like the characters, try to remember all those moments.

anyway, i think this will be my last post here.. of course i may be wrong, but we'll see. i've just been frustrated at all the negativeness in this forum about the finale, i literally can't read anymore bad reviews by angry fans. i'll definitely check up to see the recaps, i love those :) and maybe i'll check in every once in a while... thanks sledge for all your hard work, and thanks to all the mods and admins and others who have kept this forum going all these years... you guys are all a great bunch of people!!!!

-with much LOST love
hurley rocks dudes-- also known as Jason :D

as a christian, i'm going to say that the "sideways purgatory" (which wasn't purgatory) wasn't a christian reference. the writers did pay homage to all religions in the scene. it wasn't even purgatory because they weren't paying off their debts, they were just remembering. even if they claimed it was all a christian thing, they would have been way off base because in no way is that a "christian" belief.

ya i didn't like the word "purgatory" being used... i don't think its an apt description since they weren't paying off the debts of their sins there or anything like that. i've also been annoyed with fan's reactions that have been portrayed by the media. its so amazing to me that people who can't comprehend anything about the show or the finale think they have legitimate complaints, even though their questions would have been answered if they had just payed attention

or maybe the writers put them all in there just to screw with us? or maybe because they thought it would be cool? "hey lets have them all look into a mirror!" i mean, it could be we are trying a bit too hard here to get by what was explained to us

i don't think it was "purgatory", i was just a place to remember each other and what they went through

i don't know exactly why they showed the wreckage, but i would assume it was for old times sake

all the flashbacks happened. the sideways thing only happened when they died at different points in their lives, hence Christian's line about there being no time in the sideways universe thing

no it wasn't all in his head! everything since season 1 has happened. the sideways stuff was just everybody getting back together after they died at the various points in their lives
