Episode 5x15 / Why I think John Locke is Jacob....
« on: May 07, 2009, 07:54:58 PM »
  On the way home from work today, my mind was wandering back to last night's episode.  I kept coming back to two different scenes--one being John walking out of the jungle with the bullet in his leg, and the other being his comment about killing Jacob.  This may be a bit confusing, but when I explained it to my husband, he got what I was trying to say.

This is my question: As far as we know, there are two John Locke's on the island right now: Past John with the bullet in his leg, and our present John as the new leader.  How do we know, though, that there are only the two?  How do we know that the John we see now is actually his 'present' self?

What if John with the bullet in his leg is the past, and so is the John we've been seeing as the new leader?  What if John's real 'present' self is the man in the cabin, what if John is Jacob?

From what little glimpse we had of Jacob so long ago, the still frame only ever looked like John Locke to me.  When John heard Jacob speak to him saying "Help Me..."..he was the only one to hear him.  Maybe Jacob/John was trying to communicate to his past self (and possibly could have done so through his thoughts)..

My thought is that the season might end with John seeing himself in the cabin, realizing who Jacob really is...(in a way that we won't see it, but it will be a shocked look on John's face...him knowing, but us left to speculate---at least until next season.)

So, to sum up---I think that our John now is a past version of himself, and that present John is Jacob.  It would explain the miraculous healing of his legs--since Jacob/the island can heal people. 


Please comment!!  Discuss!!

I just got distracted with things in it referencing "Clementine", "Pyramids", and "Ancient Egypt..."

Episode 5x09 / Aging and not aging on the island...
« on: March 20, 2009, 05:39:15 AM »
I've been thinking a lot lately about Richard not aging-- and now the whole deal concerning Ethan,wondering why the age doesn't match up to the Ethan we have all known.  A couple of weeks ago I posted a thread on how young Juliet, Sawyer, Jin etc. all looked...

So, here is my newest theory---

You DO age on the island---I know some people have speculated that you don't--but I think, if not in anyone else, we KNOW Alex grew up on the island.  People have to age.

I DO NOT think you age when you are in the wrong spot in time.  For example--I do not think that any of our Losties will be aging until they are back in the year they belong in.

I think this explains why Richard does not age.  I think he is stuck at this age.  I think he has flashed around in time, and until he can find his way back to the year he belongs in--he will never age.  Like Daniel had said (in Jughead,)---when Miles asked how long they will be stuck in that time before they flash again---he tells them "Could be five minutes. Could also be 5,000 years."

I really really think I'm on the right track here---someone, please jump on my bandwagon!

Community Lounge / The "I fan girl CastawayCayley" Thread....
« on: March 10, 2009, 05:35:55 AM »
So...it's no secret that I think CastawayCayley is the greatest thing since smoke monsters and time travel...
and I figure there needs to be an "I fan girl CastawayCayley" thread to discuss her great insights, fantastic write-ups, diligent digging, screen capturing, and positively hilarious one-liners.

You rock, Cayley....true story!

Theories & Speculation / How Ben knows so much...
« on: March 10, 2009, 01:46:18 AM »
  Even though Ben is very knowledgeable about the island...I started to wonder how he learned as much as he did.  Was it all just by experience?  I'm starting to not think so.  Now that we know that Ben was able to come back to the island with the 06--to an island in the 70's...my best guess is that we will be seeing a young Benjamin in the coming episodes.  My thought is this: Our Ben will meet his younger self and tell him all the secrets of the island and everything he knows about time travel, Widmore, Locke-

This would explain why he has always seemed to have the one-up on everyone else...and how he tricked Widmore into leaving the island.


Thoughts?

This part had me scratching my head with confusion!  ???

Richard tells Horace that the D.I. broke the truce with the Others.  With everything that Richard knows...wouldn't he know that HIS people were the ones who attacked the D.I.?  The Others broke the truce...am I right?  Not the other way around.

Look YEARS younger this episode with the D.I.?  That struck me right away....

Thoughts, please!

LOST Talk / ....You might be an 'Other'
« on: February 28, 2009, 02:51:34 AM »
I think that we are really going to start to understand things from an "Other" point of view in the next couple of episodes.  As some people on the forums have pointed out already--our Losties are becoming the 'Others' now that there are new survivors.

I think this would be helpful to our Losties right about now--so they can notice the warning signs:

1. If you've ever wandered through the jungle carrying weapons....you might be an Other.
2. If you've ever kidnapped someone and put them in a cage....you might be an Other.
3. If you've ever spoken the words "Trust me"...you might be an Other.
4. If you've ever felt the need to keep an 'Island' secret....you might be an Other.
5. If you've ever worn disguises or gone by an alias...you might be an Other.
6. If you've ever wanted to man a hatch....you might be an Other.
7. If you've ever used a grilled cheese sandwich as a peace offering...you might be an Other.
8. If you've ever dressed in a white robe and sent a body out to sea....you might be an Other.
9. If you've ever thought seeing a dead person walk around was normal...you might be an Other.
10. If you've ever thought to yourself "this is our island!"....you might be an Other.

Timeline Justification / John Locke's first meeting with Abaddon..
« on: February 26, 2009, 08:18:16 PM »
When John first meets him as an orderly in the hospital...Abaddon tells John that the next time they meet, John will owe him.  There was no mention of that at all in The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham.  I thought it was strange that Abaddon brings up their first meeting, but the whole part about owing him was left out.

Any ideas on the reason for that?
