Christians sudden appearance in the FS reality really boggles me. It was quite abrupt, let alone the shocking things he had to tell Jack. I'm confused to whether or not Christian Sheperd is actually dead or not in the FS reality. I mean, he must be because many of our characters make the distinction that he's dead but in the final scenes, he seemingly seems to be alive and visible by all and in addition, still missing his body. At first, I thought perhaps Christian being dead in the FS reality was because of Jack's consciousness but as I said, other characters noted it too. So what is he? Does the FS reality also have ghosts, seems a bit peculiar that even in this existence, one not even within the realm of time, that further apparitions …Read more >
If we are left to believe that the Flash Sideways narrative is nothing more then a result of some sort of unifying consciousness coming together from our various actors post-death, then what/who is David? I'm not exactly sure what I take from this episode. It seems that the events that happened in the "The Incident" was nothing more than a red herring? It seems the FST has no timeline and is suspended in some higher state of being and was either created purposely or subconsciously by our characters. I thought perhaps the bomb did work in "The Incident" and that it sunk the island and killed everyone, which brought them to the FS. However, this cannot be since we know that the FS memories involve events that occurred after "The Incident", m…Read more >
Look, I'm an in unfortunate position where I simply do not have the time to indulge in the many thought provoking discussions, blogs and theories my fellow peers humor me with. While I do come on to LP these days before the end, it's in a surprisingly limited fashion. For once, I feel like I'm missing something. What the hell just happened to Ben after Richard went flying, how was MiB seemingly so easily able to manipulate Ben and get him what he wants to do, again!? Or had Ben realized, post Richard's flying, that the only way to "survive" was to join them (can't beat them, join them rhetoric). I don't know if the producers are going to elaborate on what exactly is going through Ben's mind at this point, but I would love to hear some ide…Read more >
As some may know, I just finished reading the Watchmen series which I enjoyed thoroughly. Shortly after watching last nights episode, I thought about the similarities between what happens to Dr. Osterman and Adam. Dr. Osterman gets locked in the machine that removes objects from their intrinsic fields. Adam gets thrown into the well of massive amounts of electro magnetic energy. Dr. Osterman becomes Dr. Manhattan and is a completely different entity, neither dead nor really alive, certainly not human, and has an array of abilities. Adam becomes Smokey, also an entirely different entity from human, neither living nor dead, certainly not human in the conventional sense and also has an array of abilities.
What do you guys think? Am I fishi…Read more >
I could say Mother is a fusion of both MiB and Jacob, or MiB and Jacob are both by-products of Mother. I just wanted to point out something that I found really interesting about the Mother character. The Mother, in terms of character, is actually the ancient form of character that we see in modern day Lost with Jacob and MiB. She embodies both ideologies followed by Jacob and MiB while simultaneously opposing. She is truly the perfect example of both good (Jacob) and evil (MiB).
- She protects the island - Jacob
- She lives forever and can't die by her own hands - Jacob
- She does not want the boys to leave the island - Jacob
- She might be able to tell when someone is lying to her - Jacob
- She considers human nature evil, corruptible - Mi…
