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:  

Jack

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?

Ben… 
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?





Pre-Endgame Musings: Lost as Fantasy Island meets The Dark Crystal.

20 04 2010

What might happen tonight in Jack’s episode “The Last Recruit?” Who knows after all the twists and turns of last week’s episode? But, after last week, I had a few ideas about what is going on with these deja vu moments that are actually akin to the result of the brown acid that Pigpen warned everyone about at Woodstock. Have I lost you yet?

So, my friend Jordon and I were talking about why Des would run over Locke… I did consider that maybe Des remember that FLocke had tried to kill him by tossing him down a well, (How very Alice in Wonderland of you FLock!) but I was more inclined to believe that he thought Locke needed to have a near-death experience so he’d have that acid trip-like, Islandverse bleed-through moment. But why are the causes of the bleed-throughs so different? And what it is that will make Locke bleed-through?

Love seemed to be the common denominator for everyone else so far. It seemed to be what the Lostaways were missing in their comfy but empty Altiverse lives. That big, romantic love thing. But what of Locke? He has a good job and is getting hitched. What will bring his bleed through?

Then I remembered what I’ve been saying about Locke since The Substitute: how can he be happy giving up what he wanted most? And now with Locke heading to the hospital, probably where Jack works, it appears he may get his legs back if Jack (or someone) can fix him. This leads me to believe that it isn’t just LOVE that causes bleed-throughs but remembering whatever they got on the island that they were missing in their lives before they crashed. But what would that be for each of the Candidates?
Jack ~ stepping aside and giving up control.
Sawyer ~ (Not Juliet) but finding Anthony Cooper (Locke’s dad, who may just show up at the hospital!)
Kate ~ ??? Helping Claire? Aaron? Who knows.
Locke ~ His legs back.
Hurley ~ A woman to SEE him romantically.
The Kwans ~ Freedom from Sun’s Dad.
Sayid ~ To be the good man he knows he can be once and for all time.

It could also just be the biggest, most life changing moments for the Losties or perhaps something that caused them to experience a lot of adrenaline, like say, a fight of flight moment. I am sort of refusing to believe that it’s going to be love for all of them. I saw a clip from The Recruit where Sun remembers Locke. Perhaps she is remembering the fact that FLocke currently has the name she loves and is keeping them apart? Perhaps that is what will trigger to to remember life on the island as well and not just Locke the man?

Fantasy Island? Jacob = Mr. Roarke?

Wait a second! Jake didn't give the survivors of Oceanic 815 a welcome like this. What a tightwad!


I also wanted to put this out there… just in a general sense… that each of the Lostaways got what they wanted after coming to the island. And just like on Fantasy island, the things they wanted didn’t turn out like they wanted. For some these were old wishes, from childhood… but for some it seemed to be their last intention when they got on the plane that they were gifted.
Examples:
Jack: To not always be the one who was to blame (childhood)
Kate: To help her mother. (and validation that what she did was right.)
Hurley: To be seen by a Woman or anyone really (childhood)
Sawyer: Revenge against Anthony Cooper (childhood)
Locke: To Walk… to be vital again.
Sayid: To be a good man
Jin: Sun
Sun: To leave Jin (and be free of her father)
Claire: To give up her baby.
Charlie: To be profoundly important. Not just vapidly popular.
Michael: Wanted to be close to his son.

But look what happened for some of them… Sun ended up being separated from Jin for 3+ years and is now working her way back to him. Kate tried to help another mother on the island and again is being punished for it. Claire wanted to give her baby up for adoption when she got on the plane, when she disappeared Kate took it and now she is mad. Hurley was SEEN by Libby and is now stepping up to be seen by everyone. It is hard for him but good. Sawyer was able to kill Cooper on the island but he found out that it was a very unsettling, upsetting experience.

From looking at these examples I have concluded that the big tests for THE CANDIDATES is being given what they wanted and how they deal with the consequences of the experience. So far, Hurley and Jack are doing pretty good… settling into their new roles and are pretty well adjusted thus far. Claire, well… she’s a mess, Kate? Also a mess. Sawyer did pretty well… he processed the experience and went on to fall in love now that he was no longer blinded by the sole purpose of killing the man who ruined his life.

Lastly… I really enjoy the theory of my friend Jordon… who thinks that ultimately, the two timelines are going to collide by some sort of semi-cataclysmic event and that will result in the two timelines spawning a third. I like to look at it as the way the the Mythics and the Skeksis came together to form whole beings in the movie The Dark Crystal. The Dark island Lostaways melding into the Light Altiverse LAaways and forming beings, if not already, close to enlightened. Wouldn’t THAT be grand. That way we wouldn’t have to let go of all that was learned by the Lostaways on the island and we’d still get some of the better adjusted attributes from the Altiverse timeline.

When single shines the triple sun,
What was sundered and undone
Shall be whole, the two made one,
By Gelfling hand, or else by none.

So, I guess that would make Des the Gelfling? 

Looking SO forward to tonight I can’t STAND IT!!!





Lost: New Argument for Chayid.

14 02 2010

 

I know, I know… I’m in the minority with all my squawking about Charlie having come back in Sayid but come on!  There are some interesting audio and visual clues from recent episodes as well as some from episodes in the distant past.  I’m going to try to make my argument again. Part of the following, is taken from a comment I made over at John Cabrera’s Blog, that I believe are  interesting clues about this “infection” that Dogen is all atwitter about.  

So, I’m sorry but when Sayid first wakes up at the end of LAX part 2, I think he sounds exactly like Charlie when he says, “What Happened?” Especially the epmphasis on the word happened.  Again in “What Kate Did,” When Sayid asks, “Jack, what happened to me?” listen to how he says “Jack” and draws it out.  sounds just like Charlie when he’d get all bitchy and whiny about things around camp. I tried to find some video of these scenes to post here but I couldn’t. But, again… I check my recordings and they still sound like Charlie to me. Rewatch them and tell me that doesn’t sound like Charlie.  Compare it to clips of Charlie on youtube when he’s talking to Jack. Do it. I dare you.

Now… Let’s just look at a couple of photos of the two:  

Sayid just after he was drowned.

 

Charlie just before he was drowned.

 

What you’re supposed to see in the comparison I’m not sure.  But there is something similar.  To me there is anyway… but I like to read symbolism into old Captain Caveman episodes and on boxes of Fruity Pebbles so, what do I know, right?  But wait!  There’re more! 

People keep mentioning that Sayid looks as if he had been crucified because of the position he was in when he the templites took him out of the water after drowning him. I looked for a screen cap or video of this but could not find it…  I did check the episode that is still on my DVR and yes, it’s true.

Pretty statue... or Heroin? Tough choice for Charlie.

 

Well, for me, I think that if anyone would have taken over Sayid’s body… or was to be resurrected in his body in a Christlike, ‘rolled the boulder from the crypt’ style  resurrection  it would have been the Catholic raised Charlie based on all of the Christian iconography that was part of his journey on the island. Plus, his middle name is, Hieronymus which translates to Jerome and possibly making him named after Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus translated to Saint Jerome, who was the guy who translated the bible into Latin.  He was famously baptized late in life for the time circa 366 AD. He could have also been named after the patron saint of Orphans, St. Jerome Emiliani, since Claire eventually died and left Aaron an Orphan.

More importantly, however were Charlie’s signs and visions while he was on the island. There were the Virgin Mary statues filled with heroin (as seen above) and the vision he had on the beach where he saw Claire and his Mother posed as in  Verrocchio’s painting: Baptism of Christ on the beach (see left) Please note the dove flying out of the jungle.  The Dove in Christianity is the symbol for the Baptism of Jesus and his eventual resurrection and in ancient Greek mythology,  the Dove was the bird of Athena and represented the renewal of life. Then of course, interrupting Charlie from the vision of his mother and Claire…   Hurley comes out of the jungle dressed as John the Baptist. (see below, right.)

Hurley appears to Charlie as John the Baptist.

 

Yes, I’m sure all these things could be big fat Red Herrings designed to make me think that Charlie is back in an incredibly yummy Sayid package. But what about the other little things?  

Like, who was that annoying little gnome who was always following Jack like a puppy and asking him questions to the point that the slashfanfic people had to make them lovers.  Oh, yes, that was Charlie.

Also, did Sayid ever trust anyone enough to say…  ‘Hey Jack, if you think I should take that black capsule filled with something that will probably kill me… that’s cool.  I’ll take it… whatevs.’  No.  That sounds, again, like something Charlie would do.  So yes… I’m officially in camp Chayid until I find out otherwise. Anyone with me?  Oh come on now!  I thought I presented a well researched and reasonable argument. Oh well… If you want to think it’s Jacob or Smokey or some sort of virus…  that’s fine… But what if the infection isn’t something that’s not supposed to be there but someone who’s not? Think about Rousseau and now Claire.  Our sweet Claire Bear looked awfully Rousseau-like when last we saw her, didn’t she? Could the infection be just the presence of someone who was supposed to die but somehow came back? And while in the eyes of the temple people this is BAD. Jacob seems to be down with it…

 Sure, it’s all just baseless conjecture on my part but hey, what else have I got to do?  Live a life?  Nah. It’s cold outside. 

Oh, but hey… doesn’t the healing pool at the temple (see below) kinda look like, say…

Healing pool looking a tad murky.

 

a fancy version of, this baptismal pool? (below) British archaeologist Shimon Gibson believes this large cistern in a cave found near KIBBUTZ TZUBA, Israel was where John the Baptist anointed many of his disciples. Sure, it’s not as fancy as the Lost Temple but hey… it’s old.

Again, thanks for your attention… now let the stoning begin.  (I hope you all have bad aim.)   

Until Next Time, “That douche is my dad,”





Dear Lost, I know what could have happened to Claire. Please?

11 02 2010

Please, please, please won’t you extend Jeff Kober’s role?  Yes, he was great as a mechanic who was sympathetic to Kate’s handcuffed plight…

Kober as the cool mechanic who helped Kate out of handcuffs in the alternate timeline.

 

but now imagine what he could do with a bigger role. A role perhaps on the island…  as a rogue Other who has been living with Claire all this time, watching over her, showing her how to hunt and set traps. A bad ass with a heart of gold. (Not to say that Claire couldn’t survive on her own but I just really enjoy Jeff Kober in every role I’ve seen him in.  He brings a special something, you know?) 

Or what if I went so far as to say that perhaps Rousseau wasn’t the one who set those traps but used them?  Same with Claire.  What if this they were created by this rogue Other?  What is he split from the Others a long time ago? Before Rousseau ever got to the island? Hey TPtB!  There’s time right?  I looked at Kober’s IMDB page and it looks like he’s available for work.  

Kober as China Beach's Sgt. Evan 'Dodger' Winslow which aired on ABC from 1988 to 1991.

 

Remember Dodger from China Beach? Dodger was a Marine who went a bit rogue in Vietnam after a traumatic fire fight where he lost a lot of men. He goes back out in the field with his platoon though but only to keep his mates alive. A rogue Dodger would be an excellent addition on island crazypants don’t you think? 

Come on producers, add some years, exchange the military issue for some “Other’s” gear and bing bam boom… the most badass other the island has ever seen.  Do it! Do it!  

Until Next Time:  “That douche is my dad.”





Just Turned on Lost… Is that Charlie?

9 02 2010

Is that Charlie in Sayid? Really sounds just like him… especially when he said “Jack.”

Edited to say: 

Charlie did visit Hurley a bunch. He seemed to be flesh and bone. You could say that perhaps he’d been smokified like Locke, but we’ve never seen Smoke off the island. Also, I just am not sure about the idea that there is going to be an army of smoke men vs. the Others as the final season. Charlie and Claire went through so much and Charlie’s story of redemption was perhaps the most powerful on the island and for him to have been possessed by badness and then popped into Sayid who has had a similar journey toward redemption. Hmmmm…

So, how great to see Claire.  She went all rogue like Rousseau.  I reckon those were all her traps.  Must have been what Justin was going to tell Kate… that it was Claire who set the traps.  And wasn’t that Justin guy pretty cool?

OH! And how awesome is Hiroyuki Sanada as Dogen? Apparently the role was written especially for him… according to TPtB. 

Until next time: “That douche is my Dad.”
