I just noticed the poetic irony of the final line of Lost. When Locke says "We've been waiting for you" to Jack in the church, he's not only referring to them waiting for Jack to 'awake', but that Locke's been waiting for Jack to believe him. Looking across the series, one of the overlying storylines that is present the entire series is Locke's faith in the island and Jack's journey to the same sense of purpose. The whole circle of destiny comes together. It's nice to know the two of them finally had closure.Read more >
A possible realization: was Michael's 'afterlife' not in the limbo of the FST because he was trapped on the island? I always wondered why it was randomly Michael who appeared in Everyone Loves Hugo, and why he didn't appear in the FST on the plane. The FST and the whispers may be seperate entities, but what if those who were trapped on the island for what they did, like Michael, weren't able to ever exist in the FST? Perhaps those who didn't deserve to 'move on' stay stuck on the island, unable to go back to the FST and move on with the group?
That could explain the missing people in the church reunion: Michael (and therefore Walt), Nikki, Paulo, and Eko weren't in the FST because they should've been stuck on the island as whisperers becaus…Read more >
Across the Sea, in opinion, was a very good episode but not my favorite. A bit like The Other 48 Days, but with 2 badass immortals. I liked it, I enjoyed the backstory of Jacob and MIB, but the episode from beginning to end was only a 'pretty good' story, considering the hype it got as the 3rd last episode that will reveal all about the island. The reason I absolutely loved it in the scheme of the entire season, however, is because it's completely changed my viewpoint of all of the Jacob/MIB dynamics. I have a feeling that going back and watching from the Incident on, I'll have a very different perspective, knowing how Jacob and MIB came to be enemies. From 'it always ends the same', to 'I want to go home', to 'The devil took my body' (Th…Read more >

These thoughts occured to be after 'Across the Sea', after we learned that MIB was turned to smoke monster because of the Source.
- What if Jacob's last words, "They're coming", refers to Desmond? Yes, it may have referred to the candidates jumping through time. To me, either seems possible: the people who prevent MIB from leaving the island, the person who is apparently dangerous to him.
- As Sayid says, Desmond is important because MIB wants him dead. Is Desmond important because the Swan Discharge was the closest thing possible to what MIB went through?
- Ben and Locke both must have went through similar things when they turned the wheel, so close to the light. Right? On an unrelated note, did the Others know much about the Source? Ben kn…
