Recently - and not so recently - there has been a lot of talk about whether or not team Darlton is going to make good on answering those pesky questions we nuts love to sit around and theorize about. Obviously, not everything will be answered, and many of the questions that will be or have been answered come from the viewer's own inferrence. So, do you think that Darlton, Abrams, the writers, etc. should release a book? I mean, they're never going to get to all of those things we want to know. But after LOST is over, they could release something explaining the process behind coming up with the major story arcs, mysteries, and mythologies.
Of course, there has been no indication that they would do something like this. I was just curious…Read more >
I was hoping someone could clear up my confusion on this issue. Ben admitted to Locke (or UnLocke at the time) that he had never seen Jacob. His contact with him came only through Richard. Now, when UnLocke asks Richard to take him to Jacob, they go directly to the statue. This makes sense because Richard and UnLocke know that is where Jacob is going to be.
What I want to know is why in season 3 Ben takes Locke to the cabin. Obviously, he expected to put on his little charade and fool Locke. But how did he know about the cabin and not to use flashlights? He couldn't have expected Jacob to be there because if he did he wouldn't have taken Locke there. Then, in season 4 he continues to allow Locke to chase after the cabin and expects …Read more >
I guess I should have entitled this "Things to Read..." Since Season 3 and these ridiculously long hiatuses(plural for hiatus?) I've entertained myself with the many literary works referenced on Lost. So, here are a few suggestions I hope you will enjoy.
1. The Dark Tower series by Stephen King - A SEVEN BOOK series. I don't believe that it has ever been referenced on the show, but the producers have said what an influence the series and other King works (THE STAND) have been on them. The first four books I found amazing. The last three fell short of my expectations. Regardless, it is a long series that blends action, western, fantasy, and sci-fi.
2. VALIS by Philip K. Dick - First referenced in season 4, it is the first book in Dick…Read more >
Hi, long time reader. First time poster. After rewatching seasons 1-4 and selected episodes of 5, I began to really see a connection to all the "undead" activities and Jacob's Nemesis, specifically in seasons 3-5. Mainly, I think that the Nemesis hasn't been just masquerading as John Locke for half of season 5. I think that he's been taking the form of people whose bodies have wound up on the Island. It was Christian who Locke found in Jacob's cabin (if it did indeed belong to Jacob). Christian also confirmed that Locke would have to die (after UnLocke told Richard to tell real Locke that he must die). Alex told Ben to do exactly what UnLocke told him to do (i.e., kill Jacob). The only apparition that isn't explained by this is Walt…Read more >
