Random Lost Thoughts

  • In the opening scene I thought we were going to have a flashback to the 90’s because I saw a shiny looking red Geo Storm in a driveway but I was wrong.
  • When Ilana was in the foot statue and gathered the ash in the fire pit, my immediate thought was of the episode Cabin Fever back in season four when Richard Alpert visited a young John Locke and presented six object to him, one of which was a container of white ash.
  • It seems that Sawyer is more observant when he’s wasted.
  • I’m glad the real John Locke was buried instead of being left to rot.
  • I’m not sure why NotLocke couldn’t turn into Smokey to chase the kid or to climb down the cliff.  Perhaps he’s limited, and I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the real Locke being buried.
  • “Don’t tell me what I can’t do!” – That was said by both Locke and NotLocke.
  • Sideways Locke was very Job like.  He didn’t seem to get frustrated or as mad as I would have thought.  After falling onto his lawn and the sprinklers going off, he just seemed to laugh instead of getting angry, but then again he did get a bit angry at Hugo who can’t park his Hummer correctly.  Speaking of flash-sideways Hurley, he seems more confident and in charge of things than the other Hurley.
  • I have a feeling this Sideways story is going to show that Locke and his father still have a good relationship, and perhaps his father wasn’t the one that crippled him.  Why do I think this?  Because Locke has a picture of himself with his father in his cube.  And in those pictures, Locke appeared to be standing.  Sidenote: those cubes looked like the ones I use to work out of at Fidelity.
  • I really don’t like the story Of Mice and Men, just hearing the title of that book makes me sad.  But it has been referenced several times in Lost.
  • Locke’s words about not being able to walk Helen down the aisle sure was touching.  I can’t help but think their wedding is going to play a plot in this sideways world.  And I also think we’ll see Boone again, since he’s the Chief Operating Officer of the largest wedding business of the United States.
  • I thought Helen was suppose to be dead, so I had to do a little research.  The flash-sideways occurs in 2004, but Helen actually dies of an aneurysm in 2006.  She may still die in 2006, but for now she’s alive and well.  But I’m still a bit confused because I thought Locke and her broke up before his trip to Australia.
  • If you really liked Helen’s peace and karma shirt in this episode, you can buy it here.
  • There’s nothing like being a substitute and teaching about the human reproductive system.  Man, that guy has nothing but bad luck, I couldn’t help but feel for him everytime he couldn’t get in our out of his van, especially that one time when he fell onto his lawn and the sprinklers came on.  Speaking of sprinklers, I thought it was weird for a sprinkler system control box to be located near the front door.
  • I wonder if there is something symbolic of Locke teaching a biology class and PE?  Maybe the show is trying to show that this Locke is a man of science?
  • In case you missed it: 4-Locke, 8-Reyes, 15-Ford, 16-Jarrah, 23-Shephard, 42-Kwon
  • The cave was interesting, and it made me think of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave.
  • I wonder if NotLocke was trying to kill Sawyer with that whole ladder thing.  And I wonder if that ladder can be called Jacob’s Ladder?
  • Next week’s preview caught my attention, it looked like Jack was swinging a sword into a mirror while inside some fancy palace.

    My question is…..was Kate already crossed out?

  2. Steve says:

    MY guess is the boy is Jacob re-encarnated

  3. gork says:

    Reading this wore me out more than that ridiculous show.

  4. I also believe that the boy is Jacob reincarnated.

    I think the ashes that have been used through out the show (around Jacob's cabin, the temple and around Bram in the statue) are ashes of previous Jacobs. Even in death Jacob "protects" the island, that is why Llana collected his ashes, for protection from Flocke.

    Also young Locke was presented with those 6 objects, one being the ashes of a previous Jacob to find out if he is the new Jacob. Just like one of the test that is preformed to pick the new Dalai Lama.

    When Sayid is being tortured by Dogen he puts ashes on his body as well. He then hooks him up to that machine and shocks him. This part confuses me bc even though he was told he passed the test he really failed and is now infected. I'm thinking Dogan was hoping Sayid would come back as Jacob and the ash test was to see if he was immune to them. Since Sayid screamed in pain he was not immune and is now infected like Smokie, Claire, and Christian. (This is just my theory)

    The numbers in the cave were assigned to certain people,4-Locke, 8-Reyes, 15-Ford, 16-Jarrah, 23-Shephard, 42-Kwon. 8,15,16,23,42 all flashed back in time except 4. I think that somehow 4 and Kate are connected. I believe that the cave Flocke took Sawyer to is not Jacob's but his.

    I have so many more theories on this crazy show but I guess I wont find until more shows air.
    Would love to hear what your theories are!

    I appreciate your thoughtful insight into the show! It prompts a lot of discussion in my house.
