Someone had written in another blog that they felt like Flocke lied to Jack about appearing as Christian. They made a good point, because if you re-watch The Last Recruit, Jack is the one who introduces this question to Flocke, and then there is a pause before Flocke responds. At first, it appears that this may be news to Flocke, but he abuses the fact that Jack has seemingly already convinced himself that it was a case of Flocke appearing as Christian so he just roles with it.
However, if you watch further, Flocke CLEARLY was telling the truth, at least to a certain extent when he says, "You needed to find water, Jack, so I led you to it." I think that this line of dialogue supports the fact that Flocke appeared as Christian, because I can…Read more >
I'd like to know what everyone thinks about this theory. I haven't really thought it all the way through yet, and there is still once aspect of it that doesn't really fit, but hear me out:
I'm theorizing that the FST is the end result of the Losties' experience on the island. The candidates are all brought to the island and given the chance (although they don't know this inherently) to correct whatever 'issues' they may have. Jacob explains this much when he explains what he is doing on the island. This part gets to be a little hazy, but I believe that either overcoming these issues or obstacles, OR 'joining' Jacob in this 'war' will ultimately lead to you getting what you wanted in the FST (I know 'getting what you wanted' sounds dumb, but…Read more >
I'll admit: Immediately upon hearing the explanation about the whispers, I thought that it was a bit of a cop-out. I feel like it was more a matter of the relative ease in which Hurley solved the mystery that made the unveiling so anticlimatic. The carefree nature of Hurley's discovery and his 'not-so-surprised' reaction to Michael's confirmation of the whispers made the audience also feel like it was not an important revelation. I think that the mystery was turned over in such a way that made the audience feel like it was an obvious reveal.
I feel like the whispers were never entirely thought out by the producers, but were moreso introduced to add a mysterious aura to the show with the intention of writing in an explanation later on. I…Read more >
I know it's mentioned alot on here, but I don't think that anyone has ever really FOCUSED on the fact that we never see Christian's body on the island. Yes, we all assume that the smoke monster can re-animate dead bodies, like it did with Yemi, but I think that it's interesting that the producers have almost forced us to assume that this is what happened with Christian's body by never showing the dead body to us on the island. I think they are setting us up for something...
To dive further into the mystery, it is important to explore the time traveling season on the island. Many viewers have asked the question why the Losties were the only ones traveling through time, and why the Others didn't seem to. Myself, as well as many others, bel…Read more >
Just thought it was interesting that the character of Bram, whose name could possibly be a reference to Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula (a vampire), was impaled on a wooden stake. Hehe, just saying...Read more >
