The Lost Incident
Just tell me one thing, we will see Juliet again, right? Please? You have to love the way she went out though. But I’ll get to the ending in a bit.
I guess my big prediction about Jacob got blown out quickly. Jacob does in fact exist. Oops, my bad. But not really, turns out that I was actually half-right. Ben had never seen Jacob. He was faking his relationship with Jacob (a bit like a teen boy inventing a long-distance girlfriend) and there’s a price to ignoring Ben’s affections.
I had posted some time ago that I wondered if Jacob had anything to do with the biblical Jacob. Well, it seems that may have been accurate. This is especally true if the rumors I’ve been reading online that the other guy in the opening scene (and new occupant of Locke’s….errr…form) is Esau. It would make sense to me.
Once more, Lost goes back to the us against them story line. Good vs Evil or… well, it’s been more grey than black and white but that’s what makes it so good.
It’s really all about perspective. If someone blindly follow someone and doing evil while you think you are doing the right thing is it then good or bad? We’ll get more of that now that we know that Locke (or the person acting as Locke) now Jacob’s rival.
The dark man is annoyed at Jacob’s attempts to keep bringing new players, or pieces, onto their chessboard. “They come, they fight, they destroy, they corrupt”… these are the points he makes to indicate once again that Jacob will fail to prove him wrong. He seems to suggest that the darker sides of human nature won’t allow the circle to be broken. No matter who’s on the ship, or the next ship, (or the airplane…) “It always ends the same”. Jacob’s response: “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that? It’s just progress”.
Was Christian Sheppard really alive on the island, or was he…like Lock is now.
I still wanna know how Jacob, Richard and even Tom manage to leave the island and return more or less at will.
How strange was it for the baby Ellie is carrying in her womb is the person who wrote the instructions in the notebook she gave him to disable the bomb?
How is it that Dharma can build their village on top of catacombs and even have a shared wall in one of the basements (Horase’s villa) which leads to a room w/ a live, undetonated hydrogen bomb and they not know about it?
This leaves us with, what’s next? One of two things I guess.
- There’s a course correction and 815 still crashes
- There isn’t and, well the game is going to finish–which I assume it must as we only have one more season.
I’ve been thinking this for a while now…I wish they had decided to keep Lost going a couple more seasons and built up more of the story…but I’ll get over it.
