During the hiatus, I put up a post about the pictures of characters that is displayed in the writer's room where Lost is put together, specifically one photo that was blurred out when the wall was shown in the season 5 DVD extras. If you would like to read that post, here it is:
What was really puzzling to me was that this photo can be seen on the wall at an earlier time, but the actor in the picture doesn't look (to me, anyway) like anyone who has appeared on the show. And then last night watching Lighthouse (episode), I wondered- "Could this guy, be this guy?"Read more >
As I was watching the bonus features on the Season 5 DVD, I noticed some things that I would like to share and get some opinions on.
First of all, you may remember that during the hiatus between seasons 4 and 5, Damon and Carlton released a series of short videos on ABC.com called Dharma Special Access. One of these videos included a short tour of the writer's room where they showcased the walls of cast photos catagorized into living, undead and dead. If you have not seen this video, here it is:
I took some screen caps from this video, composited them together and added labels where I could. There are some holes, but here is what I came up with (see photos on the right):
Now, on the season 5 DVD bonus features, there is a segmanet called Buil…

We know very little about the Temple, but we will presumably see it in the coming season. So I was thinking, what if the Temple is not at all what we expect it to be.
When we see things on the Island like the statue, the ruins and even the wall that encircles the Temple, they all look very ancient as if they were put there in another time by another civilization. The name "The Temple" and the way the Others talk about it would make us believe that it is an ancient, sacred place. But in Dead is Dead when Ben, Flocke and Sun arrive at the wall, Ben tells them that "we built this [the wall] to keep people like you from ever seeing it [the Temple]." Now, of course, this was before Ben had his frightening encounter with Smokey and Alex and seeme…Read more >
I was re watching The Brig and heard Ben say something interesting. He is telling Locke how he doesn't think Locke is ready to learn the secrets of the Island because he wasn't "one of us" yet. Ben say to Locke, "When people join us here on this Island, they need to make a gesture of free will, of commitment. That's why you're going to have kill your father." I think the "gesture of free will" seems to be a very Jacob-esque idea (if indeed Jacob is the leader of the free will gang), but I think it's all Ben who asks Locke to kill his father because he knows Locke won't do it.
So this made me think, what might other "Other" leaders have asked people to do in order to be inducted into the group? What if Widmore told Ben he would have to take …Read more >
I re watched a bit of Dead is Dead last night and I had a thought about Ben's encounter in the chamber beneath the Temple. Obviously when Ben is surrounded by black smoke and sees images from his past he is with the Monster. Then after the smoke disappears back into the vent it came from, Ben turns around to see Alex. Everyone seemed to assume at the time that Alex was also the smoke monster, but this was before The Incident and the known existence of Jacob's Nemesis. So what if, the smoke was the Monster and Alex was the Nemesis? I know many people think the Monster and the Nemesis are one and the same, but I don't think so. They may work together, but I do not believe they are the same entity. Thoughts?Read more >
