If you haven't seen the newest episode, The Candidate, don't read any further. If you don't want to risk my crazy idea of how the show ends being true, don't read any further. Really. Even if only part of it is correct, it could spoil things for you if you haven't been giving a huge amount of thought into what happens from here.
We've seen that everyone who previously died, is alive at the beginning of the flash-sideways. We've recently seen 4 characters die on a submarine, all of which are alive in the flash-sideways. We've seen theories that the flash-sideways is going to actually start at the end of the series and be an epilogue of sorts.
I'm starting to think that this is true.
There are characters in the FS that have experienced strange…

Sean Sheep's recent post MiB: The ultimate Knaves & Knights scenario, which discusses our inability to trust either Jacob or the MIB without knowing their motivations, got me thinking. Assuming that the conversation, on the beach, between Jacob and Richard can be believed, if Jacob considers the MIB as "evil", has trapped him on the Island, and directly opposed the MIB's view that "man in inherently sinful", then Jacob must view himself and his actions as "good" or "for the good" and that the cost of these actions (deaths, despair, and all) are worth the chance of success.
If we go by events that we've seen, Jacob and the MIB have been at odds for at least 140 years, as seen during the landing of the Black Rock. If we go by what Jacob and t…Read more >
I've put "Finale" in the blog title. Those that would prefer to not read anything that could potentially diminish their enjoyment of Wednesday's show should not read this.
As of the ending of "Follow the Leader", Jin, Miles, and Hurley are armed and heading for the beach. Beyond getting there, and possibly hooking up with the missing survivors (Bernard and Rose), there isn't much story for their characters during the 82 minutes of the finale. My feeling is that, either by their own decision or simply by the course of events, they'll be sidetracked. Hurley knows about the Cabin and that Locke went there and learned that he had to move the Island. Hurley could decide that they should go there and try to get help. Or, the Cabin could find …Read more >
This crazy theory is based on Michael Emerson's statement that we've already seen Jacob in a non-speaking role. This isn't an attempt to say who Jacob is, it's more wild than that.
In the Biblical story of Jacob, God said to him "I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land."
Could Jacob have been out in the world, doing his Jacob stuff, and knowing that God would "bring him back to the land", been return…Read more >
Strange thing about the Incident-
Faraday explains the event to Jack and Kate. He says that it will take place in 4 hours. At least an hour later, when Chang busts into the room where Juliet and Sawyer are being interrogated, saying that the construction of the Swan has to stop, the dude (?) who has taken charge says that the construction will continue in 20 hours.
We've been under the assumption that it's the construction, the drilling, that causes the Incident but this shows that it happens about 16-17 hours earlier. Isn't this evidence that the Incident is going to be caused by the actions of the Losties?Read more >
