No, no inside info. Only intuition. Locke will succeed in destroying the island via Desmond, thus "alt" timeline. Not counting on "alt" Desmond to rectify the situation. Also, Jack is going to die of a neck wound, and (my guess) Hurley will be his replacement as island guardian (if only because he said "glad it wasn't me")

so when we see the island underwater at the beginning of this season, does that mean smokey succeeded in destroying the island, or that putting it underwater somehow saved it from getting destroyed?

i like cancersticks theory that alt desmond will counter what other desmond does. speaking of alt desmon, how the hell does he all of a sudden have this grand master plan. help from eloise? faraday?

god it feels so good to finally get answers, like when jacob sits them down and says he'll answer all their questions, its like "god damn, 5 years of watching this shit is finally paying off!!"

I'm actually more convinced than ever that Ben is going to have some Sayid-esque redemptive death after this episode. I'm not buying his allegiance with Locke at all, he's just telling him what he wants to hear. Though he totally wanted to kill Charles. PS Locke slitting the librarians throat and calling her useless was fantastic!

i agree. i think ben mainly just wanted to kill charles. he might have also wanted the island for himself like locke promised him, but once locke said he planned to destroy it the island, ben will realize there is nothing in it for him anymore and redeem himself in order to save it.

Yeah he kind of blew that motivation all to hell by telling Ben that, that didn't make much sense. Regardless, I don't think Ben is interested in the island at this point. Locke has made him this offer before and he only considered it the first time because he didn't think he had a choice. Since he killed Jacob he's just been following people around trying to get his bearings, and I think he finally does here and realizes he uniquely has the ability to keep close to Locke and relay information to Miles via the walkie-talkies.

It's going to be Jack and Locke. Not Flocke. Actual Locke. It has to be. What if Jack fixing Locke in the Alt timeline is the reason Locke can walk in the Main timeline? Locke is going to wake up and do what he was brought here to do. This is Jacob's redemption.


I don't buy Kate as one of the chosen ones. She was a variable. She was used to push Jack or Sawyer to the ultimate goal. Jacob told her what she needed to hear. If not Kate would have turned all bitchy and stomped off. Hurley, Sawyer and Kate are all still needed by the Island to help Jack. Their game is not over.

I don't really care if some of the mysteries of LOST remains unsolved. As much of a pussy as this will sound I just hope that this last episode brings back all the emotions and feelings we had for the characters in the earlier seasons. Making us truly care for them using cleverly placed flashbacks and flashforwards was a large part of what made LOST so great.

THINGS I NOTICED - WHAT THEY DIED FOR

If there's one thing to be said for the writers of LOST, it's that they learn from their mistakes. In past seasons, the pre-finale episodes contained an over-abundance of setup. There were a lot of stories to be wrapped up, a lot of characters to touch on, and a whole lot of traipsing through the beautiful jungles of the island.

Not here though. Not this time.

Maybe it's because they've been putting the pieces together for a while now, but What They Died For was a fantastic non-transitional episode of LOST. With a huge monster of a series finale looming just ahead of us, our gameboard is all set to go. The last pieces are in place, and that's left are the final moves that need to be made. Things I Noticed:


Claire's Here Now? Good Thing They Picked Up the Family-Sized Box of Super Bran

The timelines are merging for our characters. Realities are coming together. In our opening scene, the wound on Jack's neck is getting bigger and redder and much more prominent. What's even scarier, is that it now exists in the off-island universe... and not just in the mirror.

During LA X, I theorized that Jack's mark existed solely in the other timeline. We saw it reflected back in the mirror of Flight 815's bathroom, but we never saw it directly. "Whatever happened to cause the wound on Jack's neck, perhaps it only happened in the one 'true' universe. It's possible the mirror is reflecting back something that happens to Jack later on, or maybe even at the end of the show."

It now looks a lot like this might happen. As Jack chows down on the gigantic spread David put out for breakfast, we see there's a definite horizontal cut on his throat. After seeing what happened to Zoe this episode, this might be really bad news for Jack. It could easily be an omen of bad (island) things to come.

After dropping mention of the upcoming concert, the writers once again tease us with the last big LAX reveal they have left: David's birth mother. At this point, the identity of this woman is almost a running joke. It would be both funny and anticlimactic if it turned out to be Sarah, but I'm rooting along with the fan who wrote me in hoping that it's Nikki. After a half season of Zoe, it would actually be good to see Nikki again.


There's Perfect Harmony - In the Rising and the Falling of the Sea

In a parallel that reaches all the way back to the pilot episode, Jack is now the one stitching Kate up. Although the wound might be different the thread is still black. Sawyer watches zombie-like as a bunch of (very red) life vests wash up on the beach. The emptiness of these vests reflect not only the loss of Sun, Jin, and Sayid, but of the many friends and loved ones our characters have lost over the past six seasons.

Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Hurley stand there looking out over the ocean - finally together, finally united and with a common goal: the destruction of John Locke. For me, this was an awesome image. It took a lot of struggle and a lot of death to get all of their interests aligned, but for once in a long while it seems that everyone is finally on the same page.

Even cooler than that, these characters finally stop blaming each other - and themselves. On their walk through the jungle, we can see the deep conflict going on behind Sawyer's eyes. He faults himself for getting their friends killed, knowing inwardly that Jack was probably right about the bomb. This is where - despite being raked over the coals for the death of Juliet - Jack lets his friend completely off the hook. "He killed them", Jack tells Sawyer in reference to Locke. Jack already knows the guilt associated with being responsible for the deaths of others, and it's noble of him to try and spare Sawyer that same type of pain.


I'm Gonna Pound You Into The Next World, Brotha!

Desmond's on a mission this episode: first he prank-calls Jack, then he sets himself up to burn another set of treadmarks into Locke's back. When Ben shows up again Desmond almost kills two birds with one stone, beating the snot of of Dr. Linus in front of what seems to be a pretty resilient student body. A violent madman stalks the parking lot twice in one week, but somehow school still goes on? I wonder if they get off for snow days.

At any rate, Desmond is serving up way more than the FDA-daily recommended allowance of reality. As we later find out, he's also got plenty to go around. I'm not sure he intended to cause Ben's flash here, but he did it anyway; Ben suddenly remembers getting beaten up by Desmond back on the docks. It seems to me that although Desmond is helping things along, unknown forces are still at work trying to get these characters to remember each other. Not sure if that's an island thing or a Jacob thing.

"You want to know who I am?" - This is another often-repeated phrase within LOST, and this time it's Desmond who drops these words like the hammer of his fist on Ben's face. In the overall big picture, I've always thought this dialogue had a much deeper meaning. Now it looks almost like a metaphor for dual-identity; the characters we see in the alternate timeline aren't exactly the characters we see on the island. Not yet, anyway.

Desmond's beating puts Ben in the nurse's office rather than the police station, where he reflects upon his experience in a full-length mirror. His left arm is back in a sling, just like last time. Locke conveniently shows up so the two of them can bounce cross-timeline clues off one another, and this one last coincidence is the straw that breaks the camel's back for Locke. Time to see Jack again.


'Secreter Room'? C'mon, You Just Can't Beat That

"I lived in these houses 30 years before you did... otherwise known as last week." If anyone is wondering why the writers are still keeping Miles around, you're out of your mind. He's the one voice of reason we can count on when everyone else is accepting the most ridiculous of circumstances, and besides that, he's also funny as shit.

I thought it was cool that Richard had taken the time to bury Alex. It seemed he'd done it out of respect for Ben rather than out of necessity. As colleagues - if not friends - for so many years, it seemed something vital and necessary to the Ben/Richard relationship.

For a long time we've also wondered why burying or burning people seemed so important throughout the history of the island, as if the smoke monster couldn't take the form of those who were buried and gone. This leaves the question: did the monster appear as Alex during Dead is Dead before or after she was buried by Richard? Hard to say, but at this point it's probably not all that important.

This is very likely the last time we'll see the barracks, too. It's pretty far removed from the first time we saw it - an immaculately-groomed community where people watered their lawns. Now the swingsets are broken and the landscaping has gone all to hell. These images of desolation are shadowy echoes of what once was: people used to live and thrive here. Our island was once lushly populated with people, monsters, and mysteries. Now, in stark contrast, there are only a few souls left. The writers are slamming these images home for a reason: to let us know the end is near.

"That's where I was told I could summon the monster. That's before I realized it that was the one summoning me." Pretty cryptic, even for Ben. We'll probably never know who told Ben how to call the smoke monster, but it might've actually been the MIB himself. After Dead is Dead, Ben was smart enough to realize this little mud-toilet was put into place as a mechanism to keep tabs on him. Moving the Others to the barracks and behind the safety of the sonic fence defied the very rules of the island. The monster, constantly passing judgement, could count on Ben to call it in the case of intruders or interlopers. Maybe it even needed to be invited, in order to show up.


If You Need Miles, He'll be Running Through The Jungle. Again.

Okay, so it finally looks like Widmore's going to give us some answers. By breaking into Ben's house in broad daylight he allows their story to come full circle, mirroring Ben's midnight intrusion during The Shape of Things To Come. He brings Zoe with him presumably so she can get killed, because it's not like she's doing much of anything else. The real story here is why Charles came back to the island.

Ben seems genuinely surprised to see his old nemesis, thinking he'd banished him from the island for good. Widmore happily informs him that he was invited back by Jacob, and this may be why he was able to find the island again. They have a little pissing contest, mostly over who's the better chess player and who gets to blow up the Ajira plane first. Widmore sends Zoe out to pick up some more of the high-tech equipment that seems to have been working out so well for them lately, and that's when Flocke shows up.

Once again, I believe the dark man underestimates one of LOST's biggest characters. Here, after unceremoniously launching Richard into the jungle, he offers Ben the one thing he believes he wants more than anything else: dominion over the island. "When I'm gone you can have it all to yourself" - Locke's offer is pretty straightforward and very simple. So is Ben's answer: "Alright."

Here's where Ben betrays Widmore, and not out of his lust for power OR service to the man in black. His hatred for Charles stems back to the belief his enemy was directly responsible for the death of his daughter, Alex. Ben sells Widmore to Flocke out of pure spiteful revenge, wanting to both see and hear Widmore's screams as the monster tears him to pieces. And when it appears this might not happen? Ben takes matters directly into his own hands.

As for Zoe's death, well, I'm sure it was widely embraced. The problems with her character were similar to the problems stemming from Nikki and Paulo: she was introduced abruptly and in a very "know-it-all" type of way. She was combative and secretive, insistent and annoying. You don't get island-cred by acting like you're hot shit, or by trying to convince everyone that you're somehow important. You get it the same way Miles, Faraday, and Lapidus got it: by jumping onto the roller coaster and taking the ride along with us.

Widmore's storyline has been weak so far, and I was really expecting it to strengthen up. Instead, this once-great character is reduced to hiding like a coward in a closet. Less than one minute after being found, he's willing to sell out his whole operation on the off chance that the MIB will allow his daughter to live. The guy spends his whole life trying to get back to the island... just so he can whisper the darkest secrets of his master plan right into Flocke's ear?

And what about the end of the world? "If he gets off the island, everyone you know and love will cease to exist!" It's like all that stuff just flew right out the window the second Penny was mentioned. Ben shooting Widmore to prevent him from saving his daughter was a pretty cool scene, and I loved the line he delivers immediately afterward. But Charles Widmore? Unless there's an underlying storyline we don't know about, he went out like a total chump. His only apparent purpose - both times so far - was to get Desmond to the island.

Ever the scheming opportunist, Ben ensures his longevity by asking the monster "Did you say there were some other people to kill?" With Widmore gone and his plan revealed, Ben knows that the dark man has very little need for allies at this point. There are still some candidates Flocke can't touch directly, however, and I like to think that Ben somehow knows this. Maybe he's playing up to the monster to keep himself alive.

Ben's a character that's already seen some level of redemption. If Illana accomplished nothing else, bringing Ben back from the brink of the dark side seemed to be kind of important. I'm pretty sure he's playing the monster here, and that he'll betray it in the end. Ben's good at really playing people, and it would be great to watch him play the man in black into a very bad situation.

And no matter what, I hope that Richard is still alive! After all the trouble Hugo went through during Ab Aeterno to bring him back, I'd like to think he has some sort of ultimate purpose. It's "He who would save us all", not "He who gets his throat collapsed and flung into the jungle". Hopefully.


Oh But We Insist! Even if We Have to Kidnap You!

In the alternate timeline, Ben's place in Alex's life parallels a good many aspects of the on-island world. The one thing always missing on the island however, was a sense of family. Here, twisted and genius writing puts Ben at the very same dinner table with the woman who's child he once snatched away.

In stark contrast to her mentally-wrecked counterpart, LAX_Danielle is a well-adjusted mom who's happy to host her daughter's favorite teacher and father figure, Dr. Linus. The irony here is overwhelming. Ben is genuinely touched by the love felt for him in this household - the same household he once so violently broke apart. If and when his on-island memories come crashing home, I can see him feeling even more emotionally connected to both of these people.

You also have to remember this: Ben took Alex away to save both her and her mother's lives from Charles Widmore. After seeing his own beginnings on the island, we learned that Ben was never given the choice, or chance, for a normal life. Despite all the crazy things he's done, I find myself rooting for Ben to have a happy ending. If he ended up with both Danielle and Alex, it would fitting and cool.


There Should be a Jack / Locke Scene in Every Episode

Although the parallels are coming so fast we're getting a little numb to them by now, one thing that never gets old is watching Jack and Locke interact with each other. Here, once again in the LAX timeline, they're put together to speak about faith, hope and destiny.

It took a lot of violence and long hours in the makeup chair, but Locke is finally coming around. His mind is open to the possibility that he's being brought back to Jack, again and again, for a very specific reason. Jack tells Locke not to mistake coincidence for fate. These are Mr. Eko's words, and in my opinion, one of the best lines of the show.

I got chills when Locke said "I think I'm ready to get out of this chair." If and when this happens, it's going to bring his story full circle. Locke's paralysis was an integral part of the show's origins. If he were to finally get up and walk away on his own two feet, it would signify the end of a very long and awesome journey for both him, and for us.


C'mon Let's Face It - Your Lives All Sucked To Begin With

I've never waited six years for the answer to a question, much less one from a TV show. Yet here's the dream-scene we've all been waiting for: Jacob sitting calmly down with our characters, pushing all of the bullshit aside, and giving us solid answers to the most fundamental questions in all of LOST.

Everyone was brought to the island for a reason, and that reason was to help Jacob undo a two-thousand year old mistake. No one questions him. No one disbelieves him. There's still anger and resentment however, especially in light of all the surrounding death and destruction our heroes have been forced to endure. Sawyer even demands to know why they should help Jacob in the first place, and this is an excellent question. As we've been taught, a huge part of LOST's overall lore involves people cleaning up their own mess. Why should Jacob be any different?

We also get the answer to another long-standing mystery: why each of these characters all come from the same miserable background. Turns out Jacob plucked them from their shitty circumstances and placed them here not only because the island needed them, but because they needed the island. Hey, what can you say? The guy's all heart. He even crossed off Kate's name when she became a mother, telling her: "It's just a line of chalk in a cave, Kate. The job's yours if you want it."

This line seemed tremendously important to me. Beyond all of these apparent rules and regulations, it turns out the only thing that really matters is choice, or free will. Jacob never had it. Ben never had it either. And although it looks like all of our characters were brought here without really choosing this path, Jacob won't select any single one of them to take his place. The person who takes the job has to want to do it of their own accord. And if no one does? Well, it's still kinda obscure, but apparently everyone is screwed.

This will go down as a legendary scene, culminating in Jack volunteering with "I'll do it". On every level, Jack's made peace with the fact that this is his destiny. All his life he's done nothing but make sacrifices to help people. He's given up on a lot of things: happiness, his marriage, even a life of his own, all to help everyone else get fixed. Here, he's got the opportunity to save not only his remaining friends, but to possibly spare the entire world from destruction. For a self-sacrificing maniac like Jack? It's the mother of all possible job offers.

Before the last of his ash is consumed in the fire Jacob, symbolically passes the torch to Jack - just as his mother did to him. He also tells Jack where the heart of the island is. Turns out it's on the other side of the bamboo field, right near where Jack fell from the sky. This is a big clue for many reasons. For starters, it seems to indicate that Jack was the chosen one all along. He was the one who fell closest to the heart of the island, and the one most suited to be its next guardian.

More importantly, don't forget we saw someone else in that bamboo field: Christian Shephard. In the mobisode that takes place before Jack even opens his eye in the pilot, Christian tells Vincent: "Go wake up my son. He has work to do." As far as I'm concerned, this solidifies the idea that every iteration of Christian Shephard was NOT the man in black. In this case, it's a pretty good guess we were looking at Jacob here.

In what could possibly be Jack's last moments as a mortal man, Jacob washes his hands of the island. He asks for a cup, fills it, and chants the same ceremonial bullshit his mother did. What words does he use? Nonsense words, of course. Jacob could be reciting a complete list of the stuff he plans to do once he gets off this rock - it makes no difference, really. The only thing that matters is that Jack believes in this ceremony. It's faith and belief that will allow him to guard the island. These are also the same things Jack will need to do battle with the man in black, and ultimately defeat him.


It Sure Ain't the Bon Jovi Concert

Of all the incredible scenes this week, my favorite one was the prison break. Desmond's knowing smile while turning himself in at the police station could've easily been taken for mild insanity. By the time Ana Lucia opened the doors and set everyone free however, I had a big shit-eating grin of my own. Desmond didn't just 'know' anymore... he knew.

The Hugo and Desmond we see here are fully-aware, fully-informed, full-fledged versions of their island counterparts. The casual way they address each other and Hurley's immediate recognition of Ana Lucia paints a vivid portrait of just how much these characters are in the know. Desmond's assertion of "She's not ready yet" also gives us hope that eventually, all of our heroes will make the same transformation as them.

As many of us have speculated for weeks now, these people now exist in the LAX timeline with full knowledge of their island lives. They've become aware of both universes. This is awesome news, because if the majority of LOST's ending takes place in the LAX timeline, at least we'll get back all of the characters we've known and loved for so long. The show can end with the original characters being thrust into a different setting, without really losing anything. It can also allow additional closure and endings for even those characters who've died. In short, this IS the other side.

I also loved the music in this scene. It was playful, cool, and it gave an accelerated sense of a rapidly progressing storyline. Somewhere along the line, Desmond came up with a plan. And judging from the fact that everyone's all headed to what's probably Widmore and Hawking's concert, I'll bet Daniel Faraday is involved in that plan too.


You Can Have The Island. . . Right After I Destroy It

Alongside the mystery of who let Desmond out of the well (my vote is for Sayid or Miles), we have to ask ourselves this: isn't telling Ben he plans to destroy the island in direct conflict with Flocke's promise to leave it for him?

If you're not sure exactly how Desmond acts as a failsafe for the island, neither am I. Maybe it has something to do with the cases of electromagnetic crap Zoe and Widmore brought with them in their canoe. Maybe he's supercharged with some of the island's inner glow. Whatever it is, we have to remember that the writers went out of their way to show us how immune Desmond was to gigantic magnetic fields. Not sure I want to see the island go out in a blast of energy, or even see the island go out at all.

Whew. We're almost done. It's crazy to think that in less than a week, I'll know exactly how LOST ends.

I want to wish everyone a happy series finale! See you on that other side...

Vozz

Possible spoiler . . . On Jorge Garcia's podcast he talked about a scene with Locke and Claire that was cut out of the episode for time.








Locke asked Claire to kill people for him just like Ben, but she turns him down. This at the beginning of the episode, we will see it in the DVD most likely.

CUSE On the other hand, we had all these fantastic intentions for this character Mr. Eko, played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. But the guy got down to Hawaii, his whole crew that he rolled with was in London, he was 8,000 miles away, and he hated being there. So we were forced to completely cut bait on Mr. Eko. It’s not like J. K. Rowling; we don’t control every aspect of our world. We work and collaborate with many other artists, and he didn’t want to be on the show. Now, by pruning that branch, that ended up giving us room and space to do more with Michael Emerson’s character, and so suddenly Ben sort of blossomed forth, perhaps sooner and maybe to a greater degree than he would have had we been servicing Mr. Eko.

THANK YOU, ADEWALE!!!!!

Here's Why I'm Not Approaching The 'Lost' Finale With A List Of Demands
Categories: Television

10:51 am

May 20, 2010
by Linda Holmes


Mario Perez/ABC Hurley (Jorge Garcia), Jacob (Mark Pellegrino), Kate (Evangeline Lilly), Jack (Matthew Fox), and Sawyer (Josh Holloway) had a few things to discuss on last week's Lost.

Back when I wrote about the marvelously daunting task that had been taken on by the producers of Lost — who had spun such a complex story with so many mysteries that it was literally not possible that they could resolve all of them — one of the things I was dreading was the inevitable outbreak of lists of all the things that had never been resolved. It was clear from the beginning that those who specialize in being perpetually unsatisfied with absolutely everything would find the end of Lost to be their 32-ounce porterhouse steak; it would be a feast of "Well, that was a disappointment," and "Well, there's six years of my life I'll never get back," and "Well, that certainly made sense, NOT."

That's why it's been depressing to read things like the io9 list of 50 Questions Lost Really Does Have To Answer. Now, I like io9 a lot (they are not the perpetually unsatisfied, to be clear), and I know that they come from a purer geek place (in the good way) than I do. But on this list, you will find things like:

What was with those Egyptian symbols that appeared in the Hatch when the countdown went past 108 minutes? That didn't seem like the Dharma Initiative's style.

And:

It seems like everyone who was a passenger on Oceanic 815 has numerous connections that they don't even know about. Like Jack and Claire being half-siblings, and Sawyer's ex-girlfriend helping Kate confront her mom. What caused this excessive degree of synchronicity?

These are exactly the questions I don't care about and I don't need answers to. The Egyptian symbols? Whatever. Maybe there's a meaningful reason, but maybe there isn't.
Here's one of the things about mysteries: not everything is a clue. If you went to the headquarters of a company and you were trying to solve a murder, you would find a few things related to the murder, but you would also find lots of isolated, noteworthy things that aren't related to the murder. That's because the building exists outside the murder occurring. The building wasn't built just to house the murder.

To me, some of the trick of Lost has been that some things are important and some things aren't. Not everything they dropped in there is a key element to the ultimate solution of the mystery. And that doesn't bother me at all, because that's part of constructing a convincing universe. It would be utterly phony to portray a Dharma Initiative that managed to exist for years as a functioning business/community/conspiracy with a large population of participants, but left behind nothing that wasn't directly related to Oceanic 815 and its journey.

Does this approach allow the people who write the show a little bit of wiggle room, and allow them to get out of things that might originally have been envisioned as meaningful, but now just turn out to be blind alleys? Of course. But it also respects the fact that when you solve a real mystery, there are blind alleys. There are things that don't mean anything. Haven't you ever watched Law & Order?

And then there's the "synchronicity" question. How would that synchronicity possibly be explained in a way that would be satisfying? Isn't it clear by now that in the presence of whatever that power source on the island is, things kinda happen? Isn't that what makes it a power source? Isn't that what makes it relevant? Why would it be helpful, or enjoyable, or a better story, if you had a technical explanation of exactly how that power operates to pull people to each other?

There comes a point where you are asking for the midichlorians, is what I'm saying.

If you weren't ready for some things to be inconsistent with the world you know — if you weren't ready for the idea that synchronicity might just be — then I cannot understand how you stayed on board after they introduced a sentient monster made from smoke. Yes, they eventually explained "who" the smoke monster is, but does that qualify as an explanation? "He can turn himself into smoke that can grab things and kill people." So we're done now? That's an adequate explanation? Why isn't the next question, "Why can he transform himself into smoke?"

Does the way I'm approaching this show require the acceptance of unanswered questions? Of course. But so does every other story.

What would draw Rhett Butler to Scarlett O'Hara when she's so spoiled and insufferable?

How exactly did Jay Gatsby's psyche work?

How likely is it, really, that Ahab would have found Moby Dick?

Why was Cinderella's stepmother so mean?

Every story builds in elements that are unknowable. Every story constructs a world in which certain truths exist without explanation. Not to get too sweeping-orchestral-theme-music about it, but truly, this is the frailty of the human condition, isn't it? Do you consistently understand why your boss or your spouse or your ex or your parents behave as they do? Of course not; you can gain understanding, but at some point, your universe contains mysteries.

And that's the sense in which Lost works allegorically, for me. I'm interested in bafflement and struggle and confusion about what's the right thing to do. I'm interested in sacrifice and loss. I'm interested in devotion and loyalty and pondering other ways things might have worked out. All those elements of the storytelling work fine as a sort of grander mythology, because obstacles exist, whether or not I understand why or how those obstacles got there. As long as those obstacles are demonstrated to be there, and as long as they stand between a character I care about and an comprehensible goal, I really don't have to have the details.

To use another analogy, I get Sisyphus — I understand the point of that story — without knowing exactly how high the mountain was or exactly how heavy the rock was, and without a better explanation for his plight than "the gods made him do it." If I can posit that all-powerful gods exist as the backdrop of a story, I can posit a pool of light.

That's why the most important thing to me, by far, is the human beings who are involved in this story. My heavens, if they could have spent the last season wrapping up explanations for things like the Egyptian symbols or demonstrating how all this is affecting the people in the story, I am enormously glad they are spending so much of it on character.

I don't know exactly why drinking a cup of water would make Jack be like Jacob, but I have been watching Jack for six seasons, and his resignation to that fate — and his awe at his own transformation — was adequately affecting anyway, because it's Jack, and I get Jack.

Similarly: how, exactly, the bomb did or did not bring about changes in the timeline was far less important to me than the changes in Sawyer after Juliet died. Or "died," or half-died, or partially died, or died in one version of events, I do not care, because to Sawyer, she died, and it was a character story.

I certainly hope that people who have enjoyed this show for six seasons aren't going to retroactively decide that all their time was wasted because the finale didn't satisfy them by answering an adequate number of questions. It was interesting that Damon Lindelof happened upon the same metaphor in an interview yesterday that I once used to describe showrunners myself: they are driving the bus, and you've got to give them the benefit of the doubt and at least give them a shot at showing you where they've been going all this time.

And that's how I'm heading into Sunday's finale. I'm leaning back in my seat, I'm relaxing, and I'm assuming that I'm in good hands, because I have been so far.

Ivy, I am not going to write up a huge thing on why I think that article is absolutely ridiculous, except to say that the things that the writer is championing is the same reason that I stopped watching the show. The writing became extremely sloppy. My parents would try to convince me to start watching again and almost try to explain what was going on, and it just sounded absolutely retarded. I like lots of characters and I like big story arcs and the mysteries were fun, but once it was all compounded on itself and there was really no hope for any explanations in sight, I refused to give it any more time. Now that I am finding out what some of that shit was, 3 to 4 years later mind you, I am glad I stopped watching. I hope you guys enjoy the finale. I have a feeling a lot of fans are going to be pissed.

05-20-2010, 03:26 PM
i think you're talking about the article i posted? i'm sure it's confusing with all the new avatars :)

i see what you're saying brandon. i just think that if we got an explanation for why people have 4 toes, what every single hyroglyphic meant and why everyone's lives were so intertwined, we would just complain that the answers weren't good enough like a lot of people are doing with some of the answers we get now, such as the source.

i like the writer's take that we don't need every single question answered because it makes things less realistic. even though i know this most certainly isn't a realistic show, i kinda like the video game approach of all of us getting thrown in the mix and only understanding what we see while getting explanations later. this show for me has always been the ultimate cliffhanger show. there's always another question to answer and i love it.

while i do agree that some of the explanations have been strange or simply poor writing, i just hope that for that reason they don't try to explain EVERYTHING. i really don't care about the psychic and claire. i didn't care about who adam and eve were. and i've already forgotten about the statue. i cared when sun & jin died, when jack finally started having faith and when ben acted out to avenge alex.

you are right that a lot of people are going to be pissed. but since i've started watching, i don't think i've ever thought there was a way for them to answer all our questions AND make everyone happy.

i think a lot of people stopped watching in seasons 2-3 which is understandable. it was like all character development and beating around the bush with no answers to anything, just more questions, which was pretty annoying to a lot of viewers (including me). in that nytimes interview (which was a really great read btw), the writers themselves practically admitted that those seasons sucked:


Q. The question I get most from readers and friends, beyond what it all means, is: How much did the writers and the creators know going in about how things were going to end?

LINDELOF: In answering that question you have to bifurcate the creative construct of the mythology of the show and the series as a whole into two periods. The first period is where we didnít know how long the show was going to go for. So thereís a certain degree of wheel spinning that Carlton and I have talked about ad nauseam in the Season 2, Season 3 period, where you could only do middle. We did have extensive conversations about certain mythological elements of the island: why these people couldnít be discovered; that we would do time-travel-related storytelling; and, most importantly, the Others on the island and their relationship with this character named Jacob and who he might be and what his relationship was with the island. Who would end up with who, who would live, who would die, who would make sacrifices. But none of those things could be implemented or talked about in any real way until we negotiated an end date.

there are a bunch of these types of stories that they abandoned which is annoying to me as well. but like they said in that same interview, some actor related things are out of their control and they need to roll with the punches and improvise sometimes.

We have to remember that this is an ABC show. Ratings and broad entertainment are top priority. That and negotiating a definitive date for an ending must have had an impact on direction.

The X Files is different in that they could actually do stand alone stories and so shoe-horned in some alien plot crap that they couldn't really keep track of.

Lost can't do stand alone stories but still had to bide its time, so you get wheel-spinning arcs that don't really go anywhere, as well as things they established and then couldn't follow up on. And yeah, that sucks.

But I gave the show an ultimatum: kill everyone I care about and see if I tune in next week. So far that hasn't happened and lo, here I am still.

Keep in mind that the television I watch is all about characters I enjoy and almost never about the script. I can watch some ridiculous plot about old people inhabited by aliens that kill by turning you to dust if I care about the characters enough.

So, confession time. I have never watched an episode of Lost. Till about 45 minutes ago. I found a site online the streams all the episodes for free. I just watched episode 1 and I now I want to watch all the episodes.

However, the site I found (watchloststreaming.com) is extremely shitty quality. Whenever the camera moves fast, all I see pixels. Anyone know of any sites that stream it for free... that is not shittying quality?

quicksilverscreen.com go to the fourms they have varying quality links ranging from HD to smaller flash that is still good quality. They also have pretty much every show there as well.

Why did you guys wait so long to start, the journey was half the fun.

And thanks for the tip. Gonna try that now.

Yay Josh. Come in here and talk about it as you watch the show. It'll keep us interested. I think you're gonna love it.



I just got back from Jimmy Kimmel. Josh Holloway was on, as well as some BBQ cook, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Slayer. Josh was super cute, just so enthusiastic about the show. You can tell he had so much fun being on it and isn't jaded one ounce. He talked about how his wife always tries to read his scripts before he can. She's crazy into the show. They also showed us a short clip from the finale with... SPOILER ALERT... Sawyer and Jack talking in the jungle!!!! OMG OMG OMG. I didn't really watch it, partly because I didn't want to watch it, but mainly because I was watching Josh watch it. There's also a really funny pre-taped segment between Jimmy and Jacob/Mark Pellegrino. I was laughing out loud watching it. It might not be as funny on tv as it was in the studio. But still, good. Slayer was ridiculous. Instant hardcore moshpit, tons of fans out on the street who couldn't get tix, trying to break down the fences and screaming and pretty much interrupting the show. It was awesome. So excited for Damon and Carlton tomorrow!!!

So full disclosure, I know NOTHING of what happens in this series. While I was searching for episodes, I saw in season 6 they are off the island, than back on the island and now I am thoroughly confused. I don't think it has spoiled anything for me though, in fact it has made me even more interested in the show.

I loved the first three episodes. I am definitely going to have to keep tracking them down. Question: Is there a reason the character John Locke is named after the philosopher? Or is that a spoiler? Either way, I found that interesting.

I think I am starting to get why you all love this show so much.

I admit, I just got a little teary (a post from Jorge Garcia)


At 5 a.m. on April 24, I became unemployed.

I just wrapped my six-season run on "Lost." The job that went above and beyond anything I could have imagined was over.

When I auditioned for "Lost," I was just another out-of-work actor struggling to land a pilot. When I first went in to meet the producers, there wasn't any material for me, except a few sides they had for the character Sawyer.

I felt great about the audition; so great, in fact, that getting the part wasn't important because I knew I couldn't have done any better. Then I got the call that I was going to test, and that they were going to write scenes specifically for me. I remember noticing I was the only Hurley in the room waiting to test. I called my agent from the parking lot afterward and said, "I don't know what it meant but it felt like a good thing."

When I got hired I hadn't even seen the pilot script. All I knew was that it was a J.J. Abrams show and that it would shoot in Hawaii. I figured, if anything, I had just scored an extended Hawaiian vacation.

Moving to Hawaii was a dream come true. When I worked the magazine stand at Borders in Westwood, I remember seeing a picture of Kelsey Grammer in his Hawaiian home on the cover of Architectural Digest and thinking that having a home in Hawaii was a good benchmark for success. Not two months in my new apartment in L.A., I was trying to figure out what to pack for a show that I had no idea how long would last. Now six years later, I walk around my house trying to figure out what to pack from all of the stuff I have amassed in Hawaii over the show's run.

During the pilot and the first summer of shooting we bonded quickly as a cast. After all, not unlike the show's premise, we literally found ourselves on an island with one another. We'd go to each other's houses on the weekends and nights when we weren't shooting. When the shows started airing, we would usually gather at the house of whomever the show was going to feature that week to watch and congratulate each other.

We had no information about what was going on beyond what we read in the script each week. We knew we were making TV that was not like anything seen before and crossed our fingers hoping we would find an audience who liked what we were doing.

The series premiere brought in better numbers than we anticipated and I remember saying to the other actors the next day, "I hope you like it in Hawaii because we may be here for a while."

As the seasons progressed, moments of being recognized on the street grew exponentially. There was a time during season one when all I had to do was tie my hair back to become invisible. Obviously, that does nothing for me now; neither does wearing a hat and sunglasses. At times both Daniel Dae Kim and Terry O'Quinn remarked how they enjoyed disappearing when they were around me as I would be the only one getting recognized.

Hawaii has been a wonderful place to hide for six years. Sometimes I could almost convince myself that "Lost" was a just a little show I did with friends in the jungle. I always liked to think of us as the tinkers in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" until something would shake that fantasy and I'd be forced to recognize how huge the show was becoming, like getting nominated for a Golden Globe. J.J., always the consummate mensch, wanted my experience to be enjoyable and easy at the awards, so he gifted me my first custom-tailored tuxedo.

I think the time spent under the cast tent on set will be what I'll miss the most. We sang songs to Terry and Naveen's guitar playing, made valiant group efforts to complete a Friday edition of the New York Times crossword puzzle and played a lot of Scrabble.

My last day on "Lost" was also my longest: 20 hours. Without going into details, I can say the shoot was dangerous, physical and wet. But what could be more appropriate? How else could we end this epic show without an epic marathon night of shooting? At the end of it all we all remarked how we expected the end to be more emotional for us, but we were too tired to cry.

I'll admit I got a little teary with Matthew Fox. I thanked him for everything he taught me, including taking me on his trip to Japan to see Green Day that first summer of shooting. At the time, flying at the last minute to a foreign country was way out of my comfort zone, but then again nothing on "Lost" was ever in my comfort zone.

I stuck around after even after I wrapped to see the martini shot of the entire show. I could feel director Jack Bender's resistance to call "print" on that last take. In fact I'm pretty sure he asked for one more take to delay the inevitable.

I still don't think the end of it all has hit me yet. Maybe I'll feel it when the finale finally airs Sunday. Or maybe it will hit me when I board the plane at Honolulu Airport for the last time as a Hawaiian resident.

I have no clue what my next adventure is going to be, I just know this job is going to be a hard one to follow.

chairmenmeow47
05-21-2010, 03:03 PM
that makes me teary-eyed too. especially the thought of a billie joe & matthew fox sandwich :p

i can't imagine though how awesome it would be to get cast on a show like this. not just that the show itself is so cool, but rarely do you get to be on such a large ensemble cast where most of you get similar amounts of screen time. it must be a lot of fun to work with such a large cast & crew and be secluded on an island like that.

Blinken
05-21-2010, 03:08 PM
Basically if you think of time as linear then what I am supposing is that sideways 2004 is actually the real 2008. I can't fully explain how but it was probably caused by something happening to the light cave.

Remember the other times Desmond was hit with massive electromagnetic energy his consciousness traveled through time not alternate worlds. So I think there are only ways that Desmond can connect with the other mind. The first is that the real 2004 has been replaced by the alt 2004, that way his mind is just moving back in time. I don't think that works at all for a number of reasons, the biggest being that the others wouldn't be able to Remember the future. This is why the future works for me. We see lots of recognition in the sideways of the island but not the other way(except for Desmond). Even Hurley who seems to be fully enlightened in the sideways is not enlightened like Desmond on the Island. The reason is that Island Desmond has seen the future and Hurley just can't.

I can go more in depth later when I am home and not typing on my blackberry.

Tonight's Kimmel was pretty cool. Spoiler alert for all the following:














Jimmy has this piece where he unnecessarily blurs and bleeps stuff on tv. He did a special Lost edition tonight and it was HILARIOUS. You gotta watch it. He also had Pierre Chang do one final dharma video. Then he did a portion where audience members can ask Damon and Carlton questions. There were two pre-selected people, and then motherfucking ROSE AND BERNARD stood up in the audience and asks "we want to know what happens to US!" we all went crazy with surprise. They stayed in the audience for the rest of the show. So awesome. Then jimmy read their first ABC pitch for the show.back in 04. It was really funny. For being Damon and Carlton's last interview, it sure was pointless. They answered again why Walt wasn't on the show anymore. I.don't.remember any other questions. And they showed a short clip of Sawyer going to the well to find Desmond and stumbling onto Ben and MIB.

I didn't start watching LOST until around the end of season 2, but like most of us, from the very first episode I saw I was hooked. So much so, that I watched the whole first season in about 30 hrs. All this while in the middle of the Pacific Ocean aboard my Coast Guard Cutter. Luckily, my friend also had the first 5 episodes of Season 2 too, so I wasn't completely screwed by the season 1 finale cliffhanger ;)

these are pretty funny. jacob is MUCH funnier when he's with dr. smoke.

I'm actually so glad Ben is back to his badass self. He's been such a throwaway character this past handful of episodes. I'm hoping he's conning MIB, but even if he's not, at least he's going out in flames.

Has anyone heard of the Mobisodes they did in between season 3 and 4. I somehow missed all of them, they are short 2-3 minute scenes that fill in missing pieces. There is about a dozen or so of them. Some amazing things like Juliet making the deal with Michael to free Ben. They are all on youtube if anyone is interested.

If any of you still have Kimmel taped from last night, my friend said he saw me on it. When Jimmy asks if any of the audience have questions for Damon and Carlton, while the second guy asks his question, up in the top right hand corner you'll see my head peak out from behind some chick with long brown hair. I'm wearing green.



Blinken I saw a few of them when they put em up on the site, but I kept forgetting to check them regularly.

From Entertainment Weekly's letters section:

In honor of Lost's final episode, we are hosting a party with an Island-themed menu. We're starting with Jin and tonics, followed by chicken Dhama-giana, Jack Shephard's pie, and Sayid dishes like Hurley fries and corn on the Ja-cob. For dessert, we'll enjoy cup-Kates, Sun-daes, and e-Claires and split a Charlotte Rousseau. Benjamint, anyone?

Just watched the last episode before the finale last night... Whoa... But reading Blinken's theories about the "flash sideways" made me realize that at some point I stopped trying to follow the story, and just enjoyed the craziness of it all. Is there on anywhere on the internet that recaps all stuff that's important to know to really appreciate the ending? If any of you obsessed Lost fans know, it would be really helpful.

For arguments sake, lets say heaven exists. Do you really think people who go there die, and then have to wait for the rest of their friends and relatives to die? If something like that is real, it WOULD exist outside of time. everything that happened would always be happening.

But it's not real, and we are talking about a tv show

The ALT was the afterlife-so they could find the ones who mattered most to them. There is no sense of time in the afterlife...we just followed Jack there at the end. In "our time" Boone, Shannon, etc, would have been there for a while. After Jack corked the island, everyone went on living their lives, Hurley and Ben watching over the island dies after Jack. Ben didn't join them because they weren't the most important things in his life, his most important time.

....

This goes for Eloise almost asking Desmond not to take faraday because it wasnt his time.

The mirrors all make sense so do the loops in time and space. Beautifully executed show.

After watching it again, I will say I'm guilty of this. The ending was good, just not what I personally wanted. I guess I was always one of those more interested with the island than the characters, hence my initial disappointment. I was also very confused/buzzed upon first viewing.

Never seen the show before or this last episode..

But what I'm gathering is that the island is real..

So like the plane crash that started this show, happened..

and so random things like polar bears, that smoke monster thing and time travel story were all grounded in the shows 'reality'

and then late in the seasons, they started having alt. storylines, that would later just become a 'creation' that (the people on the island created?) to meet up when they die?

i'm just asking because A: I don't want to lose 6 years of my life to a show and B: if that's all true then, it sounds like the first couple of seasons of made up crazy stuff on the island never really mattered and was just for dramatic tv..

i guess, if i was a fan, or knew more about it, it sounds like i would want something with that time travel thing to explain the ending better, weren't they all apart of that dharma thing?

just sounds better to do time travel than heaven stuff.. but that's just the atheist in me talking.

I loved, not what I expected or wanted but I think it works great.

The way I see it the Island is where the afterlife is and the guardian is responsible for keeping the afterlife safe. Without afterlife there would be now life, everything needs to be in balance. Hurley, Ben, Frank, Miles, Desmond, Richard all lived full lives after the finale and before the afterlife. There was no waiting for anyone in heaven they just all start together on the flight it is their boat across the river styxx. In fact Hurley and Ben lived for a very long time, just like Jacob and Richard.
