First off, I liked Across the Sea. To all you haters out there who want answers to everything, might I suggest you watch one of those half hour sitcoms where everything is resolved in the running time. I think that one of the best things about Lost is that, when it's all said and done, there will still be unanswered questions. By doing that, it ensures its own legacy, as well as giving us more to speculate about. That's right, Lost is the gift that keeps on giving.
Anyway, back to what I wanted to say, learning more about Jacob and MIB made me want to go back and rewatch the scene when we first met them in The Incident. The main thing that I focused on was the whole exchange between Jacob and his brother regarding whether people would alway…Read more >
Although it was sad, is anybody else really pleased that Sun and Jin met their end in this manner? Their entire ordeal had been so complex and full of difficulties that I think it was better for them to die together than to somehow be separated again. Also, Jin has become one of my favorite characters over the last season or so, and I thought that his deciding to stay with Sun and willingly die may be the most touching thing Lost has shown us. It was even better than Charlie's, in my opinion, because it was more thoughtful and not just a reaction.Read more >

The lyrics of the song start like this: "Those who are dead are not dead, they're just living in my head, and since I fell for that spell I am living thee as well". This reminded me of Hurley's visions of dead people, and how these dead people are in his head in the same way that he was at one point crazilly stuck in his own head.

You didnt get to heaven but you made it close, you didnt get to heaven but you made it close". After last night's explanation of the…Read more >
So, after all of the stuff that Charlie said about love and the such with the near-death experiences, I had this idea that maybe there can only be one version of each person in the timelines in order for things to work out. I mean that only whenever there is only one version of each character in the respective timelines can the "true" reality be reconciled, with an amalgamation of the best, most redeemed versions of the characters we have come to know and love.
Maybe that is why Charlie said to Jack, back in LA X, that he should have dide. He understands that he had to die in order to reach this shangri la of redemption.Read more >
Just wondering what you think. In the caves ad lighthouse, should Kate's last name be Austen, or her biological father's, Janssen? If it differs, was her name in the lists Austen? Does this even matter? Why am I talking about Kate?Read more >
