Random Lost Thoughts

  • What’s up with Jack and mirrors?  He looks in a mirror on the plane and finds a mark on his neck, in last night’s episode he found an appendix scare while looking in the mirror, and then he smashed all those mirrors in the lighthouse.  I think he now has about 28 years of bad luck.  Also, he was staring at his reflection while outside of the temple.
  • But let’s take it a step further, his son was a mirror image of himself albeit a younger version.
  • I think that was the first time I ever used albeit in a sentence.  I saw the opportunity and decided to take it.
  • Lets go back to the appendix for a moment . . . you may recall that Jack supervised his own appendix removal on The Island back in season four with the help of Bernard, Kate, and Juliet.
  • Jack sure does like Alice in Wonderland, he read it to both David and Aaron.  But did you catch another hat-tip to the book when Jack went to David’s house and found the key to the front door underneath the rabbit lawn ornament?
  • Interesting pictures of the lighthouse mirrors.
  • Lostpedia states that Dogen said the following to Hurley in Japanese, “You’re lucky that I have to protect you. Otherwise I’d have cut your head off.
  • It was hard for me to accept Claire being tough and all, perhaps it was bad acting.
  • Most interesting words spoke by Claire, “If there’s one thing that’ll kill you around here it’s infection.”  She’s definitely the new Rousseau.
  • Jack and his son’s relationship seemed to be similar to Michael and Walt’s.
  • I wouldn’t be surprised to see the mother of Jack’s son actually be Juliet.  And I wouldn’t be surprised to see Juliet and Sawyer actually date in a sideways storyline.
  • The word “candidate” and its variations seem to carry a lot of weight.  Did you notice the “Welcome All Candidates!” sign as Jack walked into the audition?  And that word seems to be tied to Dogen who was also at the audition.
  • The piece that David Shepard was playing at the recital was also played by a young Daniel Faraday.

    They can't end this like G.K. Rowling did with Harry Potter… you know, Voldemort conquered and then the epilogue tells us about Hermione and Ron and Harry and Ginny.

    I think that these "flash sideways" we are seeing are actually the epilogue of the story. That is, we see everyone living differently than we saw them before (Jack repairs relationship with son, Locke accepts paralysis and has relationship with his dad, Rose accepts cancer diagnosis, Hurley is confident and competent, etc.) Instead of an "alternate reality" I think that the final episode will culminate in an event which makes the "sideways stories" be the "happy ending". I could be wrong… but it would be a cool device to tell the story.
