Episode 6x02 / Claire=Rousseau
« on: February 09, 2010, 11:34:22 PM »
At the end of "What Kate Does", we see Claire holding Jin at gunpoint. This combined with Kate and Jin's previous conversation with their two guards about Rousseau's traps made me realize that Claire has essentially become exactly like Rousseau. She gave birth on the island, she lost the one she loved, she loses her baby, and the she disappears. Now Claire reappears after potentially living alone in the jungle for a long period of time looking kind of crazy. She even has Rousseau-looking hair. In addition, if the two guards are sure that Rousseau's traps are no longer a threat, then one might assume that Claire set them. One could assume that the 2nd Other tried to hush up the existence of Claire.

Any thoughts?

Episode 5x16 / Walt
« on: May 22, 2009, 12:59:19 PM »
Walt's significance was never fully explored. He has some sort of talent, something along the lines of when he sees an animal in a book (rare bird or polar bear) and they appear soon after (bird hits window, bear attacks him). I assume he will return to the Island, but what is his power's significance/connection to the Island?

Episode 5x16 / Dharma Food Drop

Timeout. I completely forgot about it in all the excitement of the current season, but why the hell was there a Dharma food drop in present day?

Episode 5x16 / Biblical References
« on: May 19, 2009, 03:17:31 AM »
I feel like this whole Black Shirt Vs. Jacob directly mirrors the Passion of Christ.

In Lost's recreation, Jacob is Jesus and Ben is Judas. Jacob was well aware of Evil Locke & Ben's intent to kill him. He clearly has some serious supernatural powers, and probably could have stopped Ben from stabbing him, but he didn't. I think that by allowing himself to die, he "frees us from sin", which in context has something to do with maybe freeing/uniting the Losties. I also think, if we're following this Christ idea, that Jacob will somehow rise, perhaps embodied in someone else. Richard's response to Ilana's question translates to "He who will save us all." There is no way that doesn't refer to Jesus. Any thoughts?

Episode 5x13 / Radzinsky & the Hatch
« on: April 15, 2009, 11:28:23 PM »
It just occured to me this episode, but we've heard of Radzinsky before. He was the partner of Kelvin, Desmond's Hatch-dwelling predecessor. If I remember correctly, we heard of him in this exchange between the two:

Desmond: Who's Radzinsky?
Kelvin (Pointing to blood splatter): That's Radzinsky.

I'm very interested in Radzinsky, and how he ended up in the Hatch. Also, if he knew all about Dharma and the building of the Swan, why did he have a detailed map of the Island and its facilities on the wall?

Also, did Radzinsky know that Dharma was destroyed?

Any ideas or thoughts?

Episode 5x13 / What lies in the shadow of the Statue?
« on: April 15, 2009, 11:21:35 PM »
Alright, in Some Like it Hoth (which could be the best episode title yet), Miles is kidnapped by a group of people, and they tell him that he does not know what lies in the shadow of the statue. In Dead is Dead, Lapedis is asked by Sayid's kidnapper "what lies in the shadow of the statue?"

It seems like Widmore's freighter crew had a rival gang. Their intentions remain unknown, but the girl, and probably other Crash 2 survivors, got on that plane expecting to be sent to the Island. I can't conceive of who has sent her, but she's definitely there for a reason.

My guess is that the Shadow of the Statue gang has serious Island connections, perhaps with a previous member of Dharma. Any ideas?

Episode 5x12 / The Will of Jacob
« on: April 09, 2009, 12:40:38 AM »
It seems like Jacob is not just a man or a single being, but a combination of things. "this is some crazy stuff" has JACOB written as a combination of all the leaders of the island in all of his posts:

J - John Locke
A - Aaron Little (The future leader of the Others)
C - Charles Widmore
O - Past leader (Whoever was the leader during "Jughead")
B - Ben Linus

This cannot be a coincidence, and if it isn't, then it expresses the significant connection between Jacob, the Island, and the leader of the Others.

Another aspect of Jacob is Richard Alpert. He seems to do the will of Jacob. He answers only to Jacob; he is above the leaders of the Others.

There is also Christian, who I think is the voice of Jacob. Any instructions are relayed through Christian to the leader of the Others. In  "Dead is Dead", Alex seems to take up a similar role.

Finally, there is Smokey, who can be summoned by the leader of the Others, but cannot be controlled. He judges everyone, and lives in the Temple. In light of Ben's encounter with Smokey in "Dead is Dead", it seems like he can morph into any person. For Ben, he takes the form of Alex, for Echo, he takes the form of his brother, and for Locke and a few other people, he is Christian. If Smokey is part of Jacob, then it is Smokey that expresses Jacob's will, in the form of whatever he chooses.

I dunno, Jacob has always been a mystery, I'm just throwing these ideas out there.  Anyone else have good ideas?

Episode 5x11 / Ben Remembers Everything
« on: April 06, 2009, 10:46:22 PM »
Richard Alpert states that Ben won't remember any of the events we've seen in the past few episodes if he goes in the Temple.

FALSE.

Ben remembers all of the people who joined Dharma who time travelled (our main characters). That's how the 50 year old Ben knows how to find them.

He convinces Juliet to come to the Island.

When Michael is given a list of people by Tom to bring to the Others' campsite in exchange for Walt, the list is exactly every person who don't belong in Dharma:

Sawyer
Jack
Kate
Hurley
etc.
