The End… And why the Island had to be Saved.

24 05 2010

I loved the series finale of Lost.  But it was so heady and intoxicating that I need a few days to digest and process…  but, I was thinking this afternoon about how much the science people are dissatisfied with the end and the lack of explanation…

Well…  it dawned on my how very interesting it is that this series finale happened at the exact time that there is oil gushing out of a hole in the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

People are mad that we didn’t find out the island was and how Smokey would have destroyed the world had he been let off the island. But don’t we sort of know that already?  

In my mind, I am choosing to see the island as a metaphor for Earth and the smoke monster as a destructive escaped energy source. I mean, smokey looks like little else than a plume of smoke created by an oil fire.

See crazy Foster Mom and the boys put it in simple terms in this conversation:

MOTHER: Light. The warmest, brightest light you’ve ever seen or felt. And we must make sure that no one ever finds it.
BOY IN BLACK: It’s beautiful…
MOTHER: Yes it is. And that’s why they want it. Because a little bit of this very same light is inside of every man. But they always want more.
JACOB: Can they take it?
MOTHER: No. But they would try. And if they tried they could put it out. And if the light goes out here… it goes out everywhere. And so I’ve protected this place. But I can’t protect it forever.

Sort of sounds like a metephorical discussion of energy sources: oil, gas, coal, etc. At least to me. We had whole seasons centering around the electromagnetism of the island and how men wanted to dig down into the earth to get to it and try to harness it so it makes sense to me.

So, why was it important to save the island?  For the same reason that it’s important to try heal or save the planet before we die and move on. We live in such a disposable society that using something up and discarding it seems like the norm…  but just because the Oceanic Survivors were done with the island doesn’t mean that they should discard it. It’s just like we shouldn’t be using up the planet, draining her of her life’s blood, only to discard her when we are ready to move on.

So, why couldn’t the series have been about both the redemption of the human soul and the conservation of the earth?   

Maybe we should send jack down to the bottom of The Gulf to plug up the hole?


Psychic Reading for our Lost Hero Jack before The End…

21 05 2010

I mean, come on…  Could there BE  anything crazier in a Crazy Lost Theory?  So… I consulted myself…  Oh yeah, you probably don’t realize that I’m a sensitive and as such, have a fair level of psychic ability.  So, I did as I do for friends and clients…  I tuned into Jack Shepherd and in turn that connected me into his fellow islanders and this is what happened…  

The following are notes I took during the reading:  


Very grounded

Sense of purpose

He can Feel the island

He loves Kate enough to let her go… The small ache remains. 

Christian may be used as a pawn against him…
We will see more of Christian.

The island feels like an extension of himself (Jack)…
It Seems to react to his moods… Feels like a well fitting coat he is putting on.

Is Jack more connected to the Island than ever? My spirit guides think so...

I’m asking the Question: Will Jack  succeed in stopping flocke?
I see Claire as an angel helping Jack.
And perhaps hindering him. 

Brown Claire is torn. Confusion and pain.
I ask Marlo (my spirit guide) to take a look at the island. 

She was apprehensive of this imaginary place.
She said… “Island Is darker side of people…” I’m wondering if she mean it was the darker side of the human imagination?

Red red red… three times.
Ben is acting on blood… With his lizard brain.

Ben is a storm…
Ben is a bullet hole.

Altiverse Ben is a whole…

Island whole Needs to be filled.

fill the whole fix the island.

I see adversaries falling… down a well…
Could it be whole problem be fixed with the hole filled with the protector and Flocke?
Might that save the island?

Notes I made after the reading:
I’ve never felt a person so connected to a place before… to nature.
Did Jack get a download or instant hookup to the island when Jake had him drink the magic water?
Feels like Jack knows that Kate thinks she belongs with Sawyer… He wants her to be happy.
It felt like Jack would be seeing Christian again.
Sort of like an angel and devil on his shoulder though… being used against him as well as helping him.
Perhaps Jack will become confused about his father? I don’t know.

It was funny doing this reading because There wasn’t much energy to feel… only very vivid images. Like reading ghosts rather than people. 

The whole/hole thing felt like it was an automatic reading response… I didn’t mean to type whole… it was supposed to be hole but I think that the wh gives it a bigger meaning.
I think it indicates bringing the two dualities together… Bringing the monster and the protector back into one whole being as opposed to having it be split into two.
Feels like bringing flocke and jack together as one…
or at least their mystical sides… together again they will restore the balance of the island.
The joining would be unwilling on both parts… I see it happening as an accident with the two fighting each other perhaps falling down a well… or into the sparkly playboy grotto place… and somehow Des is like a conductor between the two… reconnecting the two of them… stablizing… he’s like the electrical part of a machine connecting the two like a bridge.

(and then I started having psychic flashes again as I was writing…. )
I see Desmond standing there like a neutral ground…
but painted red and blue.
that is the image.
his arms are out like that daVinci drawing… the sketch?

Desmond the Vitruvian Man

one arm connected to locke the other to jack.
blue and red… like veins and arteries.
veins and arteries that connect the three together… and into the island as well. All connected. The whole.

man… being psychic is weird.

Because Kate Became a Mother? Let’s talk stupid from “What They Died For.”

20 05 2010

Are you freakin’ kidding me Jake?  You crossed Kate’s name off the list because she became a Mother?  That has got to be the lamest bit of writing ever… 

I never thought we'd see such blatant workplace discrimination on the island.

I understand that yes, it needed to be shown that Jacob didn’t have a choice when he was made island protector.  His mother out and out said, “you don’t really have a choice…Please, take the cup and drink.” and that this was the reason for his interest in choice and free will…  

To quote WB Cartoon's Witch Hazel, "Come on Come on! Drink it Drink it!"


but come on. If becoming a mother was reason enough to have one’s candidacy cancelled, then why did he bring Claire Littleton to the island knowing full well she’d become a mother? 

Was Jake so poorly raised to not be able to realize that this woman is TOTALLY PREGNANT?


Sure,  you could say that it was Aaron who was the candidate but by just exposing a woman who was 9 months pregnant to the island, with it’s Others, Monsters and really bad fashion line, makes me think that explanation was lame. 

But wait…  could it be that Kate became a Foster Mom that made Jake hesitant to let her remain a candidate? Perhaps being the Foster Kid of an Island Protector colored his decision in the matter?  Maybe he thought that if his Foster Mom hadn’t been a Protector, she would have been a better mom?  The mistake in that line of thought is that Jake was assuming that Kate would give a crap about the island enough to want to be its protector and to put that above Claire’s kid like his Mother had.  

And Speaking of Jake's Mother... this woman should have been in Deliverance! Scary.

The difference between these two Foster Mothers however, is that Mother was the island protector before she became a Foster and Kate knew nothing about Candidacy, Island Protectors or any of this island crap.  The only thing that Kate knew is that she had to love Aaron until she could get back to the island and get that kid his mother back.  But I guess I need to remember, before making assumptions and judgments about Jake’s thought process is that his world view is quite limited and largely shaped by his Foster Mother who was quite, how shall I say, Off? 

Jacob chooses to widen his world view by reading Flannery O’Connor, an author who repeatedly depicts families that are dominated by the Mother who is eventually brought to a violent, often a sexually violent, end as punishment for a surviving despite a missing patriarch. These households often depict a rebellious but physically flawed daughter. Hmmmm… sounds a lot like a mix of both Jake and Kate’s experience.  Perhaps those two should seek some group counseling?

Wow…  I’ve wound myself to nowhere again with my argument haven’t I? I mean, how can I fault an island bumpkin for having flawed reasoning skills?  Just because he is super old doesn’t mean he can grasp the concept of healthy familial relationships when his own childhood experience blinds him from seeing anything beyond.  He’s made a career out of populating the island with the adults of broken families.  He knows little more.  Maybe instead of the Lighthouse he should have just gotten a television and watched a lot of Oprah and Brady Bunch?  

Perhaps if Jacob had seen Mrs. Brady in action as she mothered Greg, Peter and Bobby he would have had a better understanding of what a healthy maternal relationship looked like?


So, I guess in the end, I can forgive Jacob for his shortsightedness in uttering such a stupid excuse in his final Lost scenes…  but the question remains, can I forgive the writers?

Mother Was Also Smokey… I’m Going to Spell it Out For Everyone… With Pictures AND Video!

18 05 2010

So, there has been a lot of talk in the wake of the tsunami of information that “Across the Sea” brought us.  Mostly I’ve seen people arguing about whether or not the twins’ Foster Mother was both the island protector and the Smoke Monster.  It’s clear that she was the protector but the big debate is on the whole Smokey thing.  I just wanted to put some ideas out there that I haven’t seen covered yet.  

Firstly, this notion that adversaries of this theory have about how quickly it would take a woman of Mother’s stature to fill in that well are absurd.  I do my fair share of dirt shoveling…  I’m a gardener…  and to be able to fill in a well of that size  (even during my strongest period in physical life ~ and yup, I used to be brawny) would take me days. Also… it wasn’t just dirt… there were huge rocks all mixed in with the dirt.  You can also see there where one side of the well has been reduced to rubble, presumably explaining those large chunks of stone there in the dirt. There is no way she could have done that in less than 24 hours.

I don't know about you but I doubt I could have reduced half of that well to rubble and then filled it in.


And let’s not forget that she  also had to kill the villagers.  People say that she burned them and that is how she was able to kill everyone. I just looked at that scene again and those people were not burned… they were all just lying there dead, bludgeoned perhaps and only the huts were burned out. Okay, from what I could see there was actually one burned guy  who was probably the reason the MIB “she burned them…”  but they were clearly not burned.  A little smokey… but not burned.) See? 

I don't see any charred bodies. Okay, there is one in the next photo... but only one! And these huts were too small to chalk it up to smoke inhalation (unless they all took Ambien before bed.) .


And you can compare it to the Smokey attack on the Temple from the Sundown Episode: 

Dead bodies and some flames... VERY similar.


And this guy…  clearly he was the victim of a surprise attack…. see there?  He dropped his onion! 

Poor guy on the right was either surprised or was trying to escape with a prized onion! The unlucky fellow on the left there was clearly burned... but out of all the screencaps and rewatching the scene, he was the only burned guy I could see.


How could one woman have done all that in such a short time?

Some people like to point out that Smokey that fire has never been his M.O. but it was FLocke who tossed Jacob into the fire ring only after Ben killed him.  And of course, you see all the flames around the photo from Sundown as well. 

Now I’d like to look at a couple of interesting phrases that have come up in the show.  By doing this I hope to point the finger toward smokey origins.  

When Mother is passing on protectorship to Jacob she says, “It’s going to be you.”  This is exactly what Sayid, after his transformation into agent of Smokey, said to Jack just before he sacrificed himself to save his friends on the submarine.  

Mother told Claudia, “Just be grateful you are alive.”  When Ben stole Alex from Rousseau he told her, “Just be grateful you are alive.” Ben…  Ben who had been manipulated by FLocke to kill Jacob. Ben who had been put into the corrupted temple water as a boy making him, as Richard put it.. Never the same.  

And lastly there are these two video clips.  One is of Jacob using a spinning wheel, and we know that he learned to weave from Mother… 

The other is of the sounds of the Smoke Monster.  

I’ve posted both of these before in another post but they are particularly compelling if one is thinking about why the smoke monster would sound so much like the spinning wheel.  It didn’t make much sense when we thought that Jake was the only weaver in the family but now that we knew his mother taught him to weave (and apparently not BIB) then it would lead me to believe that the reason the smoke monster makes these sounds is because they were sounds also made by Mother’s human form.  

You might say that perhaps Mother just controlled the Smoke Monster because it obviously did what she wanted to do by killing the villagers… but then wouldn’t Jacob have had more control over MIB/Smokey?  It was when the two roles were split that the shit hit the fan and the source turned to ick.  And from the sounds of it…  Mother also knew what it was like to have gone down into the Playboy Grotto…  worse than death.  Could be something that was told to her…  but to me, I think it was experience. 

Interesting side note… why do you think Jake was so into choices and free will?  I suspect because of this exchange when Mother was passing the protector torch to him: 

MOTHER: It has to be you, Jacob.

JACOB: No, it doesn’t. You wanted it to be him…But now I’m all you have.

MOTHER: It was always supposed to be you, Jacob. I see that now. And one day, you’ll see it, too; but, until then…you don’t really have a choice…Please, take the cup and drink.

Okay…  until next time …   Here is a little Humble Pie for you… something all we Lost Theorists will all be eating come Sunday night at 11:30 PM.

Guest Blog in Which Jordon Looks at Lost as a Parable About Duality & Unity & Finds That Everything, in The End, is Redeemable.

17 05 2010

This episode of MyCrazyLostTheory is being brought to you by the great despoiler, who shattered your regular author’s hopes in relation to a very important theory regarding Smokey’s long con, Hurley’s Ghosts, and a jar of peanut butter.  Even though I’ve apologized, apparently I still have to do my penance, which is to guest host the column this week. 

Hey Jordon... So not mock the Peanut Butter. Charlie imagined it with Claire, then it was there. That is IMO, way more magical than that stupid My Little Pony cave!


Pauline (of MyCrazyLostTheory) and I regularly check in on Wed mornings to ecstatically exchange our theories and views on the previous nights info dump that is lost.  Last Wednesday was no exception…although we both started the conversation with a great deal more trepidation than normal.  I’ll sum up my initial feelings thusly:  Watching that episode was kinda like choking back a spoonful of REALLY awful tasting medicine, and slowly finding that the aftertaste is divine and sort of warms the guts.  Reading through various blogs and comments ’round the ol’ net, it appears this is one of the most divisive episodes yet.  I think that is completely understandable.  In a way, viewers are now going to be divided into the old Locke/Jack dichotomy.  Some are happy with a general mystic underpinning, and some need concrete answers.  Until the following theory occurred to me, I was a little bit on the ” oh come ON Lost!” side of the fence.  Now, I think I see the writers long con, and I think I’m in love. 

Or, in other words:  How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love Lost as Star Wars Remake.  Ok, what?  Awkward.  My entirely revamped view of this show is that it’s Star Wars.  Well, at least partly.  In one big way.  At first we thought Star Wars was gonna be about Jack…I mean Luke. But as the series continued, and especially after the crappy prequels, we realized it had been about the MIB, oh crap, I mean Darth Vader, all along.  So this series is about the MIB.  And Jacob.  Of course.  But mostly the MIB.  And his redemption.  How can he be redeemed?  How can such a force of evil get redemption?  Well, Darth Vader blew up a whole fucking planet and somehow we forgave him at the end, right?  Seriously folks, stay with me, I swear this is going somewhere (it’s about now that Pauline is regretting asking me to guest host I imagine…). 

No Jordon, not at all. Keep going... this all sounds quite intriguing.


Before this episode, I had a series of huge questions:  What was the smoke monster, what was Jacob, what is the purpose of the Island, and why are these people candidates?  What is the sideways world, why can Hurly see Dead People, etc. etc.  We don’t have many more answers to those questions, but, as the episode pointed out in the cheekiest bit of meta-narrative yet, with each answer there are more questions. 

However, I think we’ve been played.  Here is my big gambit:  There is no Candidate.  Jacob’s entire ‘plot’ has been to redeem the MIB, and get him to accept guardianship of the Island.  No, seriously.  To begin to understand this we have to go back to this Episode, and Mommy Dearest. 

Once upon a time there was a lady who guarded a sparkly cave full of Care Bear magic, which she protected from big bad evil men who wanted to steal its power.  She had probably been doing this for centuries, and was waiting for someone to show up who could take her place.  Hunting boar and looking for poultices can get awfully boring after hundreds of years.  So can killing entire colonies as the smoke monster.  Wait, what?  That’s right.  I think Dear Old Mom was both Guardian AND Smoke Monster.  My evidence for this is direct and indirect.  First off, when she found out that Unnamed Brother had found a way to tap into the energy of the Island, she clearly got that sad look in her eyes of ‘here we go again, I’ve got to wipe out another batch of folks from the Island,’ and next thing we know, the entire village is wiped out…with prejudice.  Everyone is burned, maimed and otherwise indisposed, and also, guess what, the well has been filled in and destroyed.  Could little old Mom have done that?  Could she have thrown the MIB over her shoulder and hauled him out of the well?  Don’t think so.  I think only the Smoke monster could have done that.  Which leads me to wonder if the smoke monster was there in some other form (was the vision of MIB’s real mother the old Smokey showing his hand?  I don’t think so) or that MOM had that power…a decidedly smoke monster like destructive power.  The reason I think she was both, and not that there was another entity already extant on the Island in the role of smoke monster is because of what apparently happened to the source after MIB was sucked down that mystical water slide.  It went black folks, and we never saw it go light again.  Whatever caused THIS smoke monster to manifest caused a very very bad thing.  It was at this point that the Island ceased being the repository for the “source” of all warm and fuzzy (Mom’s explanation of the source and how each person in the world holds a spark of it inside of them is highly Cabalistic/Gnostic) and became instead a cork holding in the evil that was Smokey.   

After destroying the villagers and pissing off MIB, Mommy knew she had to make a choice…she had to pass the torch (which she literally did, by the way!) to Jacob.  Clearly Jacob wasn’t her first choice, but he was all that was left.  The other son had proven that he wouldn’t have any interest in that job, and would most likely just fuck it up.  My guess is that what she passed to Jacob was sort of incomplete, and that she was rushed into doing so.  She couldn’t pass on her full nature.  I don’t have the back up for that right now, although maybe it will come to me.  Basically, Jacob got all of the Guardianship without any of the Smokey aftertaste.  Now mom has become mortal, has passed that torch, and can die and be at peace.  She kinda wants this.  It’s pretty clear. Thankfully MIB is happy to oblige.  That dagger we’ve seen so much of this season finally ends up killing one of the supernatural characters after all…it just happens to have happened a long long time ago.  Jacob is super pissed, and decides to work out his feelings of inadequacy by throwing brother into the Care Bear cave.  Now, Mommy warned them about this, explicitly, saying it would result in a fate worse than death.  Clearly she knew about it in detail, and probably from experience.  I think it’s important to note, at least for my theory, that the MIB was mortal when he was cast in.  It was Jacob who had been given the gift of immortality by drinking the wine (the same wine by the way that he gave to Richard to drink…Richard, who became…IMMORTAL!).  So when a mortal man is cast into the Care Bear cave, all hell breaks loose, literally.  His soul is stripped from his body, and transformed into the smoke monster…or the other side of Mom’s split personality.  In mythic terms, this is the separation of the unity into duality.  And what do dualities always long for?  Return to the source, to be rejoined, to make sweet sweet love.  Ok, well, a bit too far there.  What used to be a singular role of protector is now split into two beings. And one of those beings is corrupted, pissed, and wants the hell off the Island.  And yet if we really look at the smoke monster over the course of the show, it has served as a sort of Island Security System for much of the time.  Hell, many people overtly called it that for much of the show.  So it seems that MIB can’t escape his guard duties entirely.  Maybe that’s part of his nature…but without the other side of his nature, represented by Jacob, he’s a much darker and more menacing force than he should be, and potentially deadly for the world at large. 

What if it’s more straightforward than I’m making it?  What if Jacob really does just want someone to come along and replace him, and take up his role as protector of the Island, someone to keep Smokey in check.  Isn’t the biggest risk there that Smokey will eventually find a way to loophole the next sorry sap into getting shived, and escape anyway?  The game won’t end, it will just be extended.  The only way to win the game, say it with me Mathew Broderick Fans, is Not To Play.  

Never trust a computer screen bearing greetings from Professor Falken or random dudes in the jungle of a mysterious island offering magic wine or daggers.



Now, this got me to thinking:  If my theory is correct, then why did Jacob choose these people?  I’m certain there is more to that to come in the last 3 ½ hours, but here is something to chew on:  We know that Smokey has been executing a long con throughout the show, manipulating events to get into Locke’s bod, and kill Jacob to eventuate his escape from Fantasy Island.  But what if Jacob has an even longer con going on.  What if he brought certain people to the Island whom he KNEW would compliment each other in such a way that when the MIB eventually found a way to inhabit one of them, there would be someone amongst the group who would be the perfect foil for the MIB avatar, someone who could bring him back from the Dark Side.  That’s why Kate isn’t a Candidate anymore…because MIB chose Locke…and the only true foil for Locke is Jack.  So, it is the MIB’s choice that solidifies Jacob’s choice of Candidate.  Although by Candidate here, I’m not talking anymore about who will take Jacob’s role, but the one who will be the catalyst for convincing the MIB to accept the role.  WHOAH!  What did I just do there?  Seriously.  I feel like this opens up so much, and lets so much fall into place, I’m literally reeling from it.  Why Jack?  Because of Locke!  If Sawyer had been chosen by MIB, then it would have been Kate!  If Jin had been chosen by the MIB, then Sun, etc. etc.

Which leaves Desmond.  I have no idea. Don’t get cute with me, damnit.  We still have 3 ½ hours left for that to play out. 

But this idea of the merging or healing of dualities can play into the sideways world mystery also.  For here again we see a reflection of a fractured world, two realities, which need to be merged into a single reality.  Sideways world/Island world, Jacob/MIB, Locke/Jack.  Things will come together.  And they won’t come together in a way which just perpetuates the game, a simple exchange of actors…they will come together in a way which redeems.  And Locke will have his redemption too.  He was a man of faith, a man whose faith was tested sorely, who got played by a cynical being intent to destroying meaning.  Jack, a man who refused to see meaning in anything, who clung to the pragmatic even in the face of the miraculous.  Now, their roles are reversed, and the two are inexorably being drawn into a singular orbit.  What will come of their collision?  What will this new unity be? 

And what I like best about this idea is that it brings the Island back in as a character.  Behind these ideas is one in which the Island itself is wounded…wounded by Jacob’s violent sin.  The source has been tainted.  If Flocke is redeemed, and accepts the guardianship from Jacob and his smokey nature, then perhaps the Island gets healed, redeemed as well. 

Stay tuned.  We have 3 ½ glorious hours left to find out.  And I for one can not wait.

Can We Just Fracking Call Him Adam? Oh, And Jacob’s Water Testing. Also, a Guest Blogger Next Week!

12 05 2010

I’d like to appologize for my earlier post.  I’m not so mad anymore.  In fact, I loved this episode because it is making me take another look at the entire series and question everything I thought I knew.  So…  well just, Yay. 

One of the things I’m thinking about is what can only be, as far as I can figure, the entrance to the Secret World of Og:

This wonderful opening in the earth where water flows that holds the essence of life… the light in every human bla bla bla. But what is the deal with this place?  How did it go from being the place where you’d sure to be able to find the last unicorn to the Bog of Eternal Stench? When they were boys, Eve (evil Allison Janney the Foster Mom) told the boys how wonderful and important it was but then as an adult she turns around and tells Jake that going down into it would be a fate worse than death! 

Then, in a bizarre twist on the rule that he and Adam (formerly the MIB)
inflict harm on each other, Jacob chokes Adam, Bashes his head and throat into the river rocks and then throws him down into the glowing pit where the water transforms him somehow into the smoke monster. Okay… it would seem that the water was bad…   got it… that water is BAD! Bad water!  Bad Bad Water!  And for the purposes of this blog, I must presume that the temple was built over this BADBAD Water.  

So then… When Sayid is mortally wounded, why is it that the ghost of Jacob, (since it has been established by Darlton that those are indeed actual ghosts that Hurley is seeing) tells Hurley to bring dying Sayid to the temple?  Again presuming that Jacob’s instructions for Dogen is that he should put Candidates into the water if they are injured, the question to be begged is why!?  WHYWHYWHY?! Why would Jakey Boy do this?  

Was this just a special punishment for Sayid since he was the person who shot Ben making it so Ben was put in the water and turned into bad Ben?  Or was he trying to test what happens when anyone in general gets put in the water to see if it was just that his brother had already been corrupted by his time spent living amongst the men in the village?  Why?  Why turn Sayid into a vessel of nothing?  What is the deal with Jacob?  What is his point?  

I have an idea…  but I can’t go into it because my Lostbuddy Jordon has an amazing theory he will be unveiling here on My Crazy Lost Theory next Monday… and boy is it a doozy! And my idea ties in with what I know of Jordon’s theory of awesomesause… so I must stop here…  

But, I will leave you with this…  who out there isn’t now questioning the motives of every single move that Jacob made?  And also… was it just me or was one of the men that killed the Boar played by Clancy Brown who played Kelvin Inman?  That character has been all over Lost and it would be an interesting twist of he was a survivor of the massacre of Adam’s village.  

So… Okay.  Watch this space: Monday. HUGE THEORY!  by Jordon Flato!  

oh… and water.  It’s bad… by why?  And why does Jake seem to be testing it?

Lost “Across the Sea” Theory-less.

12 05 2010

Okay so…  there may be an expanded post coming this week but after last night’s episode, I don’t have much to say.  I mean…  crazy Allison Janney said it, “”Every question I answer is only going to lead to another question. You should rest, and just be grateful you’re alive.”  (How annoying was that moment?)I will probably write something about how frustrated I am that I’m supposed to think the MIB is pure evil. I mean, that would be like hating a foster kid whose foster mom mentally abused him before handing him over to an even harsher system.

How many times does MIB have to get beat up, bashed in the head with a rock & turned into a smoke monster before I can sympathize with him? See the look of terror on his face?


Okay, that is a little extreme but seriously… these two boys were victims of a crazy woman and now all of the people who have been brought to the island have been victimized by her sons. So I suppose I can assume that all the evils in the world are caused by women huh?  Is that what you are telling me Darlton? Really?  

Oh man do the writers have some explaining to do.  Like, one minute Jake and MIB’s real mom and their adopted mom via rock bludgeoning are speaking two different languages and the next minute it’s like the island has a universal translator! WTF? 

I feel like maybe I am stupid? Did I miss something or did this only REALLY show us who Adam and Eve were?  I’m going to post something that really sums up how I feel about television and life really…  and how Lost defies this world view of mine.  Thanks Lost… and yes… I’m still mad at you, ven if there might be a theory brewing in my brain that connects MamaJake with Danielle Rousseau. Still mad.
