Episode 2x23 / Re: Desmond's Boat Race
« on: May 25, 2006, 06:10:50 PM »
I really don't think that the conversation between Libby and Desmond took place before her stint in the Mental Hospital.  Since the events of the show are taking place in late 2004 their conversation would have happened around early to mid-2001.  I get the impression that Hurley was in the Psych Ward around twelve months to two years prior to the plane crash.

So then, based on your premises:

2004 = plane crash / begin real-time on the island

2003-2002 = Hurley's hospitalization

2001 = Libby & Desmond's meeting

Please correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't this validate the possibility that Libby & Desmond met before she (or Hurley) was in the mental hospital? 

In terms of timeline certainty - after last night we now know the exact date of the plane crash (Sept-2004), and we know that Desmond has been on the island for 3+ years (which would more or less make 2001 the latest that he could have still been preparing for the race / trip).  That makes the speculated hospital stint fall nicely between those two events, no?

Theories & Speculation / Re: CHARLIE NOT A CLONE

4) Happy go lucky isn't a typical reaction from lethal electromagnetic disturbances

I'm not so sure what happened at the Swan hatch was lethal or even necessarily violent.  In fact, Charlie's emergence from the jungle leads me to believe just the opposite.  All we know about the shut-off switch that Desmond flipped is that:

 - It made an awful noise (that did not sound like an explosion)
 - It cast a bright light & violet tint across the sky
 - It ended the "System Failure"

We also know that Kelvin lied to Desmond about a lot of significant points so what he told him about the consequences of using the key to trigger the emergency shut-off "thing" could also have been a lie.  I expect next season will begin to reveal much more about Kelvin's/Dharma's/Hanso's/The Other's motives which will explain a lot.  Also, I remain entrenched in denial that those two characters (Locke & Eko) would be killed off at thi point in the show.

Episode 2x23 / Re: What did one snowman say to the other snowman?

Locke didn't know the answer to the snowman question.  He was asking Desmond to tell him the answer.

This is an AWESOME theory and could explain a lot of things.  Specifically, it would tie Libby in in a way that would make a lot more sense.  First off, it would explain why she GAVE her boat to Desmond. 

I agree to the extent that we've seen a lot of "cons" on Lost so far.  I would go further to entertain the possibility that it could be (the other way around) that Des was conning Libby - setting up their "chance" encounter at the coffee shop (already knowing her circumstances in advance) with the sole purpose of playing on her emotional state to "obtain" her boat.

Also, I assume this meeting took place after Libby's stretch in the mental hospital but I haven't seen anything that definitively proves it one way or the other.  I think this could be siginificant if it winds up that either the death of her husband, or (potentially) learning she was conned by Des was the trigger that led to her mental dissarray.

A rational person doesn't do such a thing, especially when you've just met someone over coffee.  It would also allow the writers to continue to unfold Libby's backstory.  When she died her backstory was left hanging while Ana Lucia's was pretty much finished and more or less understood.  With Libby though, we didn't know who she really was or what the circumstances were surrounding her presence in the Psychiatric Hospital with Hurley.  Perhaps she has been working for Hanso/Widmore all along and is instrumental in nudging some of these people in different directions.  It would also explain Kelvin's presence at just the right time on the beach.

On the other hand, maybe the writers just wanted to kill off Libby because of her DUI.  And Kelvin did mention to Desmond that he had been out there "for some time" before he was found.  Who knows.  Still, I like the theory.

I'm pretty certain when the new cast members for season two were announced that both Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros' (Libby) contracts were only for one season so I think Lindehoff & Cuse were planning on killing them both off all along.

Spoiler Theories and Speculation / Re: Another plane crash?
« on: May 25, 2006, 04:24:28 PM »
I was reading another LOST forum this morning and some people were talking about seeing Promos of a plane crash.  Another person mentioned that there might possibly be another plane crash by next season due to the System Failure, like Desmond was mentioning he might have caused Flight 815..................... it's possible that this could happen!

What do you think? Anyway catch anything about another plane?

I don't know if that all is true or not, but I don't think it's appropriate discussion for one of the Spoiler-Free boards.

Thanks!
