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?





Damon & Carlton, I’m not stupid so stop talking down to me… Actually, just stop talking at all!

5 05 2010

Okay… so this blog is going to be light on the theories and heavy on the annoyed rants. And I’d like to preface what I’m about to write with:  I really did love last night’s episode.  I like what is happening on the show but I don’t like the why’s that Team Darlton are spewing.  But I digress… 

So, last night we got to experience the death of some beloved characters and my favorite Old Spice Commercial Star said his last one-liner. Some were redeemed, some were just killed (Chip Lowell* aka dude with Machine Gun who also knew a few things about science-y stuff.  I was sad when you died even if the rest of the audience didn’t give a crap! Long Live CHIP!)

They were all casualties of FLocke’s “Long con” and more-so, I like to think that they’d each fullfilled their destiny. You know, cause when the island is done with you… it’s DONE with you. But no. That is not why these characters died. Why did they die? Let Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse tell you… (from THIS interview)…
Cuse: “There is no ambiguity. He is evil and he has to be stopped.” … “There will be very little debate at the end of this episode that [Fake Locke] is evil and bad and has to be stopped. The main narrative reason for him killing our main characters is to establish how much of a bad guy he is and to clearly identify him as the antagonist rolling into the end of the series.”

Lindelof: “In many ways, the season was structured as a long con on behalf of the Man In Black. Once we revealed that Locke was the Monster, we knew the audience would immediately mistrust him, and we would have to spend at least a dozen episodes of Locke trying to convince the audience that he did not have malevolent intention, that all he wanted to do was get off The Island. But everything he was doing was leading up to one moment, which was [trying to] get the candidates in one fell swoop. He knew if he killed just one of them, everyone would know what he was up to.’”

OMGosh… where to even start.  First, I’d just like to say that ever since we met The Man in Black I have given him the benefit of the doubt, going so far to wonder if he and Jacob had some point switched bodies and that Jacob was trapped in the MIB via my Tezcatlipoca theory. So finding out what I think we all suspected, that MIB was in fact the smoke monster, did little to change our opinion of who or what he was at his core. And I don’t think that I’m in the minority when I say that possibly everything that came out of FLocke’s mouth this season was not to be believed. All of this makes me feel like Darlon thinks I’m an idiot who needs to be beat over the head with stuff so I’ll “get it.”  Oh well… What happened, happened…  right? 

And speaking about what happened, specifically on this blog and in the comments of other’s blogs, I know there are people who find me INSANE to think that the MIB is a character that I have felt sympathy for.  But hear me out; What is Lost but a show that introduced us to characters who have dozens of layers.  Complicated people who are neither good nor evil, who take the punches that life throws them and make their decisions the best that they can. For 5.75 seasons we’ve seen flashback after flashback then flashforward after flashforward then flashsideways after flashsideways about all the reasons that our Lostaways are the way they are.  The good or shitty things that shaped their world views and informed their actions. And then for Darlton to decide in what feels like the 11th hour that MIB is only one shade, one big bad evil mess of rancid smelling smoke?  Wow… what a let down.  I can only hope that in next week’s episode, “Across the Sea,” that we get to see the real stuff, the heartache and confusion that this man is made of and it isn’t one big love letter to Jacob and how MIB screwed him throughout their lives because he is a bad bad man. Pffffft. 

Then there was this comment about Sayid: 

Lindelof explains: “Sayid’s entire season-long arc has basically been, if you tell him that he is evil, you can convince him he is evil. But if you tell him he is good, maybe you can convince him he is good. We basically decided that in a moment of pure instinct, if he did something, if he sacrificed his own life in favor of saving the other people’s lives, that would convey to the audience, ‘This guy was actually a good guy.’”

Dude… do you even watch your own show?  From the beginning of the series Sayid has known two things about himself; that he had done horrible, reprehensible things AND that he was good a good man at heart. Here was a man who had often been forced into making impossible choices and carry out heinous acts, usually in order to save someone or spare someone from pain. Remember Sayid as an adorable child in Tikrit when he stepped up a killed a chicken for his older brother who couldn’t do it himself when asked by his father?

This kid doesn't hate chickens!

 

You may want to call him a chicken hating killer but IMO he was trying to save his brother from humiliation at the hands of their father, who found out anyway that Sayid had done the killing.  Then, in adulthood, he only became a torturer after seeing a video of his home villiage attacked with nerve gas.  Not sure of his motivations after that during the remainder of his stint in the Iraqi Republic Guard but men are asked to do the unimaginable during war.  It does not mean they are evil.  They are serving their country and even though I am a peace loving hippie, I believe that he did his duty.  And then we saw that from the time he ran into Nadia he struggled to get on a better path. 

Throughout the show, the writers were constantly throwing Sayid into situations where he had these really heavy moral decisions to make.  Out of every person on the island, I believe his path was the hardest and it is so unfair that in the final season they turn him into a zombie, a pawn of evil (whose light we could still see occasionally glint from his dark vacant gaze) and then verbally dismiss him after the fact as a person who is either good or bad based on what he is told he is.  I call bullshit.  I say that despite the writers intentions about Sayid’s heroic actions last night, Sayid was doing what Sayid had always done… put everyone else’s needs ahead of his and taking one for the team because at heart… Sayid is and always was, a good man. period. 

So far as Sun and Jin…  I don’t understand why people are so shocked that they didn’t discuss their kid when facing certain death. It’s been well established that Sun is selfish and that they always put each other over every one else. I mean, she left her kid with her mother to go back to death island! Come on people!  Get with the program. I do think it was a very sweet ending for them.  The island was done with them… they had served their purpose… that is what I am telling myself and not all this hoo haw about them dying to prove that FLocke is evil.  Yeah… we know… he’s EVIL.  Whatever.  Daniel Dae Kim has never looked so sexy so it was a nice teary thumbs up for me.  

But back to Darlton… I understand the necessity of killing off beloved characters, of turning people evil, etc…  but I would appreciate it if the reasons you were doing so was because that is what the story dictated for the sake of the story and NOT the audience.  So we’ve been chatting, tweeting, blogging, commenting, watercoolering, texting and Lostpediaing our opinions about the MIB… so what?  You don’t see JK Rowling making decisions based on what she feels her readers aren’t following or understanding in the story.  She makes her decisions based on what her heart and mind tell her about her story and characters. Take a lesson from her… stop reading the message boards and rewatch your own show to remember what this show is; a story about people, their complexities, the moral dilemma’s that they face and how people can rise through adversity and surprise us or sink and disappoint us. (I realize this plea is too late but I just needed to say it…  if only I’d seen all this Season 6 silliness coming.) 

But again, I digress…  Yes Darlton, it was you who set us up from the beginning to believe it was a story about good vs. evil via John Locke’s Backgammon speech but then it was you again who proved over and over again that the show was so much more than that…  Lost became a painter’s palate of various shades of grey that bled and transformed into every other color imaginable.  Nothing was black and white…  and now, here we are, you want us to believe that MIB is Lord Voldemort and that is that.  Again… Pffffft!  Again, you may be able to redeem yourselves with “Across The Sea” so there is hope…  but at this point it is a dim gray, barely visible slice hope for me. 

Devil in a Black Dress...

 

So now, please remember, it wasn’t the episode I didn’t like, it was the asinine comments made by the show runners that made my blood start to percolate.  It was a great hour full of amazing moments. The Kwons death, Hurley bursting into tears, Lapidus kicking down a bear cage gate, Kate getting shot (what?)…  but the Altiverse story did however leave me flat.  Things had been cookin’ over there for a while and now it’s all slow moving and WTF?  Jack is mucking around at a dentist’s office?  Bernard is acting like the dude with the bird hat in Labyrinth, finding out Locke TBI’d his beloved father in a plane crash and was letting guilt keep him in his chair?  Jack being hyper fix it guy… again? I need to rethink all my Altiverse theories over the next couple weeks.  

Oh… this is driving me crazy!  I have a few more shots to fire at Darlton but I cannot remember them! I guess I’ll just finish with a few pleas: 

Please don’t have stripped Kate from Candidate status in order to keep her around as Daphne for Fred the Final Candidate who may just turn out to be Jack. I’m hoping that Claire kills her but if she gets stayed alive for Jack I’ll stab myself in the eyes with a rusty old spoon. 

Please explain why Jacob is such a prick next week. Tell where and why he got the god complex. 

Please  don’t make the final candidate one of the children.  Pretty Please with sugar on it?  

"Flower of Wisdom" the Once and Future Queen of Doom Island? NOOOOO!

 

Otherwise, I’m ready to buckle up and get ready for the ride where I’m anticipating a blood bath where everybody dies. And what is more fun than that?  Next Monday Watch this space! I’ll be unveiling my Q and A with Dr. Francesca Tronchin, professor of Archaeology. I approached her about an interview when I first found out about a Jacob/MIB-centric episode and lucky me, she accepted.  Now, I think you all should do a little homework this week as we approach this “Across the Sea” episode.  The keyword is: Alexandria. 

Until next time: I’ve seen Xanadu about three times…  and I STILL have no idea what it’s about.

* If you don’t know who Chip Lowell is…  look him up for goodness sake!  This is TV 101!





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!!!





Looney Lost Tunes: A Longwinded & Perhaps Preposterous Explanation of David’s Mother.

28 03 2010

Yes, it happened again.  I was merely writing a little blog post about Lost’s Jacob and MIB vs. Looney Tunes’ Ralph and Sam when I was hit with coincidence after coincidence over and over again.  Or are they coincidences? 

I ask that you please bear with me while I wind this big train down the line to its tasty destination. There are a few tangents but I assure you, my final conclusion is pretty cool and very flipfloppy.

Conveniently, for my purposes here anyway, in the Lost episode, “Every Man for Himself,” Jack was being held captive by the others and during his capture he is kept in a cell in the Aquarium.  At one point he complains about the cartoons being played on a television monitor in his cell.  These cartoons are Merrie Melodies which are basically interchangeable with Looney Tunes, both being in the Warner Brothers Cartoon Division and starring many of the same characters. This Lost episode is #53 in the series curiously enough, The Ralph and Sam cartoon from my last post was first aired in 1953. 

The particular cartoon that Jack is being shown in episode #53 is called “A Corny Concerto” which is a two-part  parody of both Disney’s “Fantasia” and “The Ugly Duckling.”

The second part (the Ugly Duckling parody) is onscreen when Juliet comes into the cell to bring Jack food. It features the story of a family of Swans who is being  systematically picked off by a vulture.  The hero of the tale turns out to be the lonely black duckling who tries to join the family but is rejected. Even the Vulture rejects him when he starts picking off the baby swans one by one to take away for later meals. The baby duck ends up defeating the vulture, saving all of the baby swans. Then the family adopts him and they all live happily ever after.  

Could this mean that one of Lost’s less savory characters, say Sayid or Ben might become the ultimate hero?  Or could this heroic black duck turned swan turn out to be none other than the Man in Black, saving all the Lostaways from the misguided intentions of Jacob?  

Oh, yes… sorry. Moving on to Jack’s Baby Mama.

Episode #53 is also the one in which Kate chooses Sawyer temporarily ending island love triangle. She makes the hot jungle love to him in the Bear cages as Jack watches on a video monitor. Then she’s forced by Others’ guard Pickett, who is beating the crap out of the blonde side of the love triangle, to admit that she loves Sawyer. There is actually a Merrie Melody cartoon called “The Stupid Cupid,” where Daffy Duck is involved in a love triangle between himself, a white chicken and a brown Rooster wherein he sings a song called “Don’t Sweetheart Me.”  In this song is the following verse:  

Don’t sweetheart me if you don’t mean it
Don’t talk sweet words if they’re not true
Don’t tear my heart like it was paper
Because my heart loves only you

You can’t go round sweethearting others
And then pretend that I’m yours exclusively
Love must be true, mean what you’re saying
Unless you do, don’t sweetheart me

Also in episode #53, it is revealed that Sawyer has a daughter named Clementine.  There is an old folk song called “Oh My Darling Clementine” that is sung several times by Bugs Bunny and Co. It that tells the tale of a miner’s daughter who drowned one day when she tripped while taking her ducklings down to the water to swim. The lyrics were written around sometime between 1863 and 1884 but the music is said to be based on a Spanish Tune that Mexican Miners were often humming in the mines during the 1849 gold rush. Interestingly, the first version of the song written in 1863 was written just 4 years before Richard set out on the Black Rock in search of a new life in the New World just like many of the miners who came to the New World seeking new beginnings. (Yeah… that one is a stretch, but still… ) 

Some of the lyrics to the creepy tune:

In a cavern, in a canyon, (kinda like the lost caves, no?)
Excavating for a mine
Dwelt a miner forty niner,
And his daughter Clementine

Light she was and like a fairy,
And her shoes were number nine,
Herring boxes, without topses,
Sandals were for Clementine.

Drove she ducklings to the water
Ev’ry morning just at nine,

Hit her foot against a splinter, (like Sawyer in the jungle?)
Fell into the foaming brine.

Ruby lips above the water,
Blowing bubbles, soft and fine,
But, alas, I was no swimmer,
(Like Charlie?)
So I lost my Clementine.

(with the chorus between each verse)
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Okay, sure… I’m stretching it again but here is where the Clementine thing gets good!
There is an American actress named Clementine Ford who was most notably on The L Word as Molly Krawl.  BUT, her first television appearance was on her mother, Cybill Shepherd’s  show “Cybill” in 1998 where she was credited under the name, “Clementine Shepherd-Ford.”


This has given me an idea about another child on the show… only in the Alt World! I’m talking David, son of Alt Jack. Might the mother of Jack’s son be Cassidy Phillips, the mother of Sawyer’s Clementine?

Alt Jack plus

Alt Cassidy Phillips could equal

Alt David?

And if this is so, does that make the original timeline’s Clementine non-existent?

Oh wait! Before you tell me that it’s impossible because Jack has brown eyes and Cassidy has Hazel eyes and Daniel has blue eyes… Christian also has blue eyes, therefore Jack has a recessive blue gene… and if Cassidy does also, they could bear blue-eyed offspring. And do we really want Juliet to be David’s mother? I know I don’t, as a fan of Suliet.

And there you have it… my latest, insanely drawn, crazy lost theory. Hope you like it. I’d like to give a little shout out to Mandy, who mentioned on John Cabrera’s blog a comment made about Jack in episode #53 that sent me down this Bugs Bunny hole. So, Thanks Mandy! That was fun.





My Craziest Lost Theories: Numbers, Chess, Ping Pong Tables & Baby Daddies.

17 02 2010

Okay…  so last night we found out what the lost numbers meant.  This has given me a few more directions to go in toward finally coming up with the wackiest theories I can that are in fact theories based on facts instead of just being wild speculation. Okay… so, maybe these are just wild speculation but they are based on some key items from last night’s episodes.

Okay. so, the numbers.  They are literally on the ceiling of a cave next to the names of six of the Lostaways… the one’s I’ve come to call the All Star Team. We’ve got #4 ~ Locke, #8 ~ Reyes, #15 ~ Ford, #16 ~ Jarrah, #23 ~ Shepperd and # 42 ~ Kwon. But wait… where is Kate?  She is a member of the All Star Team!  She got touched by Jacob when he visited her!  Where is her number? Hold on there self… that is exciting all all but I’ll just have to get to that a little later in the post.  

We found out via the FLocke that Jacob had “a thing” for numbers but most importantly we found that these numbers were used in his list of candidates for who would become protector of the island. This word “Candidate” got me thinking that I should do some googling.  I always come up with the craziest theories based on random googles… but I really like this one, however crazy it is.  

So… I typed in “The Candidate” and then looked at the disambiguation page.  Instantly my eyes went to the chess entry since I had already written a post called Picking Teams where I talked about the island being a giant chess board. On this page I found out that the semi-final tournament that precedes the Wrld Championship game of Chess is called the “Candidates Tournament.” And while that alone is somewhat interesting to me since it supports ever so slightly my opinion that the island is just a giant chess board, but I noticed that the number of participants is always between the numbers 8 and 15. TWO of the Lost numbers, specifically Hurley and Sawyer’s. 

While it would have been cool if Sawyer and Hurley had played a game of chess on the island instead of just ping pong, it is interesting (at least to me) to note that Locke did play a bunch of matches of chess against the computer program at the Flame Station in the episode Enter 77. Something I find doubly interesting is that he eventually beat the computer and now, Locke is dead, his image however lives on as MIB. 

In the same episode, the previously mentioned ping pong table got a bit of use. Hurley beat Sawyer three times and then Sawyer beat Jack. Does that mean Hurley will become King of the island?  Meh… that is a pretty sandy cliff to build a house of cards on… but I will say that the idea of having to play ping pong every 108 minutes or the world will end, as Sawyer joked to Jack is an interesting idea.  Maybe this game of Chess has to keep going?  Why? Because the world might end in Global Thermonuclear War just like in War Games? I don’t know.  I said these ideas were crazy. 

There was another thing from Enter 77 that to me seemed like a possible clue to the nature of my hyp0thysized “crazy island chess match.”  It occurs to me that when Desmond and and Locke had decided to let the station’s counter run down to zero to see if anything would happen but Desmond changed his mind because he thought it might kill everyone on the island… He found the island’s Failsafe Key hidden in his copy of Our Mutual Friend, behind the ping-pong table. Could it be possible that the entire island or perhaps the game of the island has a giant failsafe key?  And if so, is that failsafe key Desmond since he is the Constant and not a Candidate. Crazy, I know. 

From this, I wonder if perhaps the island, to get this game to stop repeating itself through time, must play itself and come up in a tie just like the checkers match in War Games?  Well… it’s a thought.  But how would the island play itself?  Perhaps if everyone ended up on the same side?  Most people are headed toward The Temple aren’t they.  But that’s just dumb… moving on.  But first… just check out the number of times that Chess has been played on the island: Lostpedia Game Page: Scroll down to Chess. 

The Triangle of Skack. Okay… so, one last thought on the numbers. As we saw above, Kate was the only member of the All Star Team that did not get a number.  I started thinking about why this could be.  Afterall, Jacob visited her and touched her but failed to give her a number. Did he bring her to the island to be part of the conflict between Sawyer and Jack?  I really hope not.  I’d hate to think that I endured the annoyance of Kate for that long just to have her be the third spoke of a love triangle. But what did she have in common with Jack and Sawyer?  

Then it came to me…  Daddy Issues!  Come on, she blew up her step dad and we never did find out who her father was.  That got me thinking about the rival archetypes on the island.  We have Jacob vs. MIB as our prototypes followed by Widmore and Ben followed by Jack and Sawyer. Let’s take a closer look at this Widmore/Ben feud shall we?  

Well, it’s pretty clear that Ben is on Team MIB so that would make Widmore part of Team Jacob.  We know that the two men have similar rules, can’t kill each other is the big one.  But then Ben had Widmore kicked off the island partly based on the fact that he had a baby with a woman off the island. This baby was Penny, Desmond’s true love. 

What I am proposing is that… what if Jacob did the same thing but no one had found out about it?  What if Jacob had met Kate’s mother during a scouting trip off the island during a time when Diane Austen’s husband was overseas in the military and had relations with her of the sexual nature?  And what if Kate was born 9 months later?  Perhaps what we saw when Jacob visited Kate was just a Dad checking up on his daughter.  When he says goodbye, he touches her nose so familiarly and warmly says to her, “Be Good, Katy” just like my parents have said to me a million times in my life. What if….Watch the interaction: 

If I recall correctly, I think it was Cabrera who came up with the idea that Jacob was actually Jack’s grandfather Ray Shephard and he was actually Jack’s father or some such notion I don’t remember… I couldn’t find the exactBefeloel the triangle...  post…  but sure… Jack could somehow be a child of Jacob in some kid of twisted time travely sort of way. I’m not explaining it right though… John did a convincing job if I could only find the thing.  So… I’ll just have to stick with my insane idea because it will give Kate more purpose in life than just being the Felicity to Sawyer’s Ben and Jack’s Noel. And man!  Did that Felicity have daddy problems… he didn’t want that girl with either Ben OR Noel…  oh crap… I’m off point. Sorry.

I know people will argue that we know that Sam Austen is not her real father because we found out that Wayne Jannsen, the man Kate believed was her step dad but found out was her biological father because Sam was out of the country when she was conceived…  but no one has ever actually SAID that.  Why wouldn’t her mother, who was so upset with Kate for killing Wayne have rubbed that in her face?  Something like… “Jesus Kate!  You killed your own father you stupid jerk!”  But no one has ever said it.  And that my friends, isthe perfect  opportunity for me to say… I think that Jacob could be her daddy. Go ahead… watch that video again and tell me it isn’t dripping with fatherly love. Do it!  I dare you!  My final thought on this…  If Diane Austen cheated on Sam, then why wouldn’t she have cheated on Wayne with Jacob? Once a cheater, I always say. 

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





Lost: The Fate of Sawyer in the Alternate Reality…

10 02 2010

Based on compelling evidence… I believe I know what the fate of Sawyer will be in the alternate timeline.

He permanently relocates in LA and becomes an uber successful eye wear model. And like Madonna and Cher, he uses just the one name: Sawyer.
