Episode 6x16 / Plane Flying Over Jack
« on: May 24, 2010, 02:41:05 PM »
So, i'm trying to figure out one thing... As jack is laying down in the bamboo, about to die, he sees the Ajira plane fly overhead. On this plane is Frank, Richard, Miles, James, Kate, and Claire.

So, this is the real, live reality. They are alive and making their way off the island. Did they live the rest of their lives in reality (say 30-40 years more, at best) before they died and then met up with everyone else in the ALT timeline /purgatory/meeting place?

What do you guys think? I think it's safe to say the island was reality and they were alive. And they definitely made it off the island. When those characters actually died is what I'm trying to put together with what is possible.

Episode 5x16 / Possible "Esau" Theory Flaw
« on: May 14, 2009, 11:55:13 PM »
One thing that is troubling me about this whole "'Esau' dude having control of Locke's body theory" is when Richard, Locke, and the others finally reach the statue of the foot. I forget the exact dialogue, but Locke sees the statue of the foot and says "So what, it's a statue of a foot." Richard says, "This is it, Jacob lives here." The expression on John Locke's face, after hearing this, is huge. He is totally surprised and blown away by this information.

Now, we know the 'Esau' dude knew about the location of the statue of the foot, it's significance, AND that Jacob lived there. If this resurrected Locke were really a disguised 'Esau'...

1) Why did he need Richard to take him to Jacob? Richard said numerous times that they should wait to go to Jacob. If this were 'Esau', wouldn't he have just said "Fine, whatever. I know where to find Jacob anyway. See you later!" Why did he HAVE to have Richard lead the way? Don't you think this new confident John Locke claiming to have all this new information (having been told by the island itself, as he said) would have said "I don't need you to show me to Jacob, I know exactly where he is. The island told me!" In my opinion, that would definitely spark a lot more confidence from everyone else that Locke is a true leader and knows everything. If this were 'Esau' in a Locke disguise, he would've known how to get to Jacob. Why have Richard lead the way?...

2) Why was he so surprised to find out this is where Jacob lived? He was genuinely surprised to learn that Jacob lived in the foot of the statue. But 'Esau' knew this is where Jacob lived. So, why so surprised? Could this just be acting on 'Esau''s part? Playing the part of a dumbfounded John Locke so that he wouldn't seem like he knew too much to actually be John Locke? But, if that's the case, why just act here? This entire time, he's been claiming to know all new information concerning a wide variety of things, because "the island told him." I don't know, it's hard to imagine him having to put on an act here, especially after having Richard and Ben follow him into the jungle to run an "errand," in which Locke knew the exact year and time that he was going to show up with a bullet in his leg.'

I love the idea of this 'Esau' character disguising himself as people who are dead on the island; it seems to fit and tie in so well with what's going on right now. But, these two questions are going through my mind, and I'm having a hard time putting my finger on why this supposed 'Esau' character would have done these things, if he were actually the real face behind the John Locke mask. He knew Jacob's location, why did he HAVE to have Richard lead the way? And why was he surprised to hear that this is where Jacob lived?

Episode 5x16 / The "Good Guys"
« on: May 14, 2009, 04:02:41 AM »
You know... Illana and her gang carrying the metal box with Locke's body in it... The whole time leading up to this episode, they were saying they were "the good guys" and when they visited Miles before he left on the freighter, they said they were "the side that is going to win."

After I saw Jacob visiting Illana (when she was all bandaged up, which is one thing I can't wait to figure out why) and asked for her help, and Illana agreed, I immediately accepted the idea that, Illana and her gang of thugs just might actually be "the good guys"! Very cool!

Episode 5x15 / Eloise Hawking's knowledge of the future
« on: May 07, 2009, 10:47:54 PM »
So far, Eloise seems to somehow always know what's going to happen in the future.

Is this because she acquired Daniel's journal in 1977, which has all of his notations and personal entries concerning the next 30 years? Or is it because Eloise, herself, partook in some time travelling? Hmm...

Episode 5x11 / Jacob's Cabin in the previews?

Was it just me, or did the previews for this episode show Kate walking in front of Jacob's cabin?

Watch at 11 seconds.

Episode 5x10 / What Sawyer should have done...
« on: March 29, 2009, 11:13:24 PM »
In my opinion, when they found Sayid running through the jungle in handcuffs, Sawyer and Jin should have said he was one of their friends that they lost in their boatwreck accident 3 years ago. Why didn't they find him until now, and why was he handcuffed? Because the hostiles captured him and held him prisoner this whole time... The second I saw Sayid running, I thought that was what Sawyer was going to say. But nooo! Come on, Sawyer! You're supposed to be a good con-artist. I was kind of upset that he couldn't think of anything better to do with Sayid than say he was a hostile double-agent.

Oh well... It was a good episode and I'm looking forward to the end of this season when we get to see what "the incident" was. :D

Episode 5x08 / A theory on what happened to the statue
« on: March 05, 2009, 11:03:25 PM »
Now we know that the entire statue existed at one point; it wasn't just a sculpture of a four-toed foot.

What caused the destruction of the statue, leaving just the foot? Remember Daniel Faraday telling Ellie Hawking, back in 1954, to bury the bomb to avoid destroying the island. He specifically said to bury it in concrete or something similar. What if the Jughead bomb was placed inside the middle of the Egyptian statue, and a few decades later it detonated, destroying all of the statue but the foot?

Episode 5x06 / The Bar Scene
« on: February 20, 2009, 06:01:53 PM »
So, just after Jack leaves the church at the beginning of the episode, he goes to a bar, where he has a drink in front of him, but he doesn't touch it. What is the significance of this scene?

Also, there was a woman also sitting at the bar. Jack's phone rings, and when he goes to answer it, the camera angle shifts to a view where both Jack and the woman at the bar are shown. If you pay close attention, for a second the camera is focused on the girl sitting a few chairs down from Jack, and then the focus is switched over to him. Not sure if there is much significance to this, but I can't figure out why they would have the camera focus on her for a moment. Does this woman have a role in the story?

Episode 5x06 / 46 hours. 36 hours.
« on: February 19, 2009, 03:10:44 AM »
Did anyone else notice that after the small flash forward of them landing on the island (at the start of the episode), it showed on the bottom of the screen, "46 hours earlier" and then went back to where we left off last week. But when they were back at the church, Eloise Hawking said their "window" in time to get to the island on that latitude and longitude was only open for another 36 hours. That leaves 10 hours unaccounted for after the plane crash/turbulance and when Jack saved Hurley from drowning.

Were the Oceanic 6 just unconscious for 10 hours on the island after they got there?
