Episode 6x06 / ELBA
« on: March 16, 2010, 09:05:04 PM »
sorry if this is part of another thread, but I just caught this and didn't have time to go thru them all. Ben writes this on the chalk board at the beginning of the episode.
ELBA backwards is ABLE... another Bible ref perhaps... not familiar with the whole story, but the brothers are Cane and Able, one good one bad. one kills the other I think.

Episode 6x04 / more names
« on: February 24, 2010, 12:00:50 AM »
does a list of all the numbers and names exist somewhere or has someone been keeping track of the ones we have and have not seen yet? have we seen Juliet? just wondering why some have died on the island and others have not, maybe it matters maybe not... just wondering. thanks!

Episode 6x03 / Hurley and Locke
« on: February 18, 2010, 01:52:14 PM »
for a while I've been feeling like it's destiny, that no matter what, these characters are all bound to meet up somehow, however... MIB brings up the idea of influence, that Jacob at one point intentionally entered all of the Losties lives and influenced them towards eventually ending up on the island b/c they are candidates to protect the island. he came in at one of their lowest points...
Locke had a low point in this episode, he was fired and all of a sudden, who appears in a suit coat... HURLEY! Is he the new Jacob?

Episode 6x03 / Locke paralyzed, how?
« on: February 17, 2010, 12:06:07 AM »
If we are now to assume that they never crashed on the island in 2004, Locke has a good relationship with his dad... How did he become paralyzed? That is a key moment, it's when Locke encounters Jacob and the influence is set for him to get on a plane and eventually he ends up on the island.

Episode 6x01 / Jack
« on: February 03, 2010, 02:59:16 PM »
why does it seem to me that Jack is the only person in 2004 who has any inkling that something isn't quite right... as if he remembers something?

TV & Movies / what did you see ads?
« on: May 06, 2009, 03:10:53 PM »
Did anyone else see these during the 4/29 broadcast and was there anything to them in relation to LOST? Screencaps if possible??? They were very quick ads and I have not seen them during any other ABC show this past week. They flashed some image and then the words "what did you see?"
Thanks for help!

Episode 5x08 / why Sawyer et al. do not leave in 2 weeks...
« on: March 05, 2009, 12:04:43 PM »
My theory is that something happens and the sub does not return. Any other thoughts...

Episode 5x07 / Ben and Locke and constants
« on: February 26, 2009, 01:40:02 PM »
Is Ben Locke's constant and vice versa? Ben now shows up back on the same island Locke is on... are there other constant connections besides Des and Daniel?

Episode 4x13 / walt's grandmother and miles??
« on: June 02, 2008, 11:38:25 AM »
Is it Walt's grandmother that Mile's visits in the freighter centric epi? Is Walt haunting his grandmother's house or maybe it's Michael haunting his mom's house trying to see Walt? When I saw how old Walt looked in the finale, it made me think back to this and I haven't re-watched yet. Thoughts?

Episode 3x22 / Through the Looking Glass, the story
« on: May 24, 2007, 04:14:36 PM »
OK, we all got the white rabbit hint in the Looking Glass logo... Alice in Wonderland and its sequel... through the looking glass! Here's a synops from wikipedia:

"Alice ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror, and to her surprise, is able to pass through to experience the alternate world. She discovers a book with looking-glass poetry, "Jabberwocky," which she can read only by holding it up to a mirror. Upon leaving the house, she enters a garden, where the flowers speak to her and mistake her for a flower. There, Alice also meets the Red Queen, who offers a throne to Alice if she just moves to the eighth rank in a chess match. Alice is placed as the White Queen's pawn, and begins the game by taking a train to the fourth rank, since pawns in chess can move two spaces on the first move.

She then meets Tweedledum and Tweedledee, of whom she knows from the famous nursery rhyme. After reciting to her the long poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter," the two proceed to act out the events of their own poem. Alice continues on to meet the White Queen, who is very absent-minded and later transforms into a sheep.

The following chapter details her meeting with Humpty Dumpty, who explains to her the meaning of "Jabberwocky," before his inevitable fall from the wall. This is followed by an encounter with the Lion and the Unicorn, who again proceed to act out a nursery rhyme. She is then rescued from the Red Knight by the White Knight, who many consider to be a representation of Lewis Carroll himself.

At this point, she reaches the eight rank and becomes a queen, and by capturing the Red Queen, puts the Red King (who has remained stationary throughout the book) into checkmate. She then awakes from her dream (if it had been a dream), and blames her black kitten (the white kitten was wholly innocent) for the mischief caused by the story. The two kittens are the children of Dinah, Alice's cat in the first book."


REMIND ME... who has a cat??? Was it Desmond???

Plus.. this as a summary of the themes of Alice in Wonderland... tell me just one that's not part of Lost, just one! They all fit!

Episode 3x22 / I've got a golden ticket...
« on: May 24, 2007, 02:57:27 PM »
I'm surprised that I don't see more on this board about the last convo we see between Kate and Jack. Seems like at least in this future-scene the whole Oceanic crash thing is hush hush or something. Golden ticket? Shouldn't that be a good thing? Anyways, Ben always struck me as a Willy Wonka type. lol
What do we learn in their convo:
-plane crash is covered up
-Kate is with someone, Jack knows who
-Jack regrets getting off the island and wants to get back
anything else that I missed?

General Spoiler Talk / Who dies in the finale?
« on: May 18, 2007, 02:35:57 PM »
I vote for Bernard since he's the last technical "tallie" left besides those that are with the "Others" still.

Episode 3x15 / Kate's mom/Ben's painting
« on: April 06, 2007, 03:19:28 PM »
Is it Kate's mom that we see in Ben's painting of the blond woman? This episode raised that possibility for me. We know people's parents and brothers and sisters can be brought to the island one way or another (Locke's father, Eko's brother, Claire and Jack sibs). I think there have got to be more island connections to the people that we see in the Lostie's flashbacks.

Episode 3x09 / Again, God and Jacob reference
« on: February 22, 2007, 02:23:49 PM »
OK, I could be missing something here, but has anyone brought up Jacob's ladder in this forum? Here's an OK webpage describing the story. <a href="http://www.gracecathedral.org/enrichment/brush_excerpts/brush_20031022.shtml">Ladder</a> Also, there is a plant known as Jacob's ladder, Polemonium caeruleum - here's a link to a picture of it, any connection to the mark on Juliette? <a href="http://www.dungevalley.co.uk/Polemonium%20caeruleum%20'Brise%20D'Anjou'.jpg">Plant</a>
I am a big LOST fan, but don't have much time to check into this stuff for too long. Has anyone done any investigation about this? Thanks.
Also Alex's bf tells Kate and Sawyer that God loves them like he loved Jacob. So does this just mean that even though they have done wrong, they can be forgiven like Jacob was when he was given his new name. I like the Adam and Eve, Kate and Sawyer connection too.
Is there any connection perhaps to the "promised land" that God tells Jacob will be his?
Since Locke has always seemed very spiritual and the vision I think it was that Charlie had of Claire and the angel in season 2 (correct me if I am wrong) and probably a few other things I am missing, I don't think these biblical connections are too far gone.

Specific Episodes / Question from: sillysab

Is there any significance to the number of fires that we see burning near the end of season 2?
