Wow, it’s finally here and I almost can’t believe it. For a
while there it seemed like this day would never come, but it finally has and I couldn’t
be more excited! This one is for all the marbles and the hype surrounding this
season of Lost has to be the biggest ever. The reason: We expect to get plenty
of answers in this season because we know that it is the last one. That being
said, the show is so dense and filled with detail and mystery that there is no
way that all of our questions can be
answered. So in preparation for season 6, I have re-watched the entire series rapid-fire
style. Many thought it couldn’t be done, but a few episodes each night was
hardly a chore and I finished re-watching the season 5 finale last night, just
So, like an observant Lostee I took down a few notes,
observations, questions and predictions. I am sure there are plenty of areas I am
forgetting to cover as well but the following is my random list for your
enjoyment, for your recollection and for my sanity because if I didn’t write
these things down, they’d be floating around in my head trying to distract me
from real life. ** By the way here is your SPOILER ALERT! If you are not caught up to
season 6 of Lost yet, you may not want to read on. **
*QUESTIONS THAT MAY NEVER BE ANSWERED (in no particular
order) – with some predictions attached
-Who are the corpses known as ‘Adam and Eve’? maybe Rose and Bernard?
- What or Who is Vincent? I know it’s the dog, but I am not convinced that he is just a dog.
- What is Walt’s connection to the island? How is he
- Will Aaron grow to be evil without Claire raising him?
Does he have a special connection with the island?
- Is Claire actually dead? If so, could she have died when
the freighter people blew up her house?
- Was it really Walt typing to Michael via the Swan Station
- What is the Hurley bird?
- What knocked down the huge statue?
- How did the Black Rock get into the center of the island?
Who was on it? – maybe Richard was on it,
but perhaps Smokey dragged or threw the ship into the center of the island. Could
that even be how the statue came down?
- Does the statue have anything to do with the island’s
fertility problems? If not, what does?
- Aside from sponsoring the race, did Widmore have something
to do with Desmond’s arrival on the island? – Perhaps a long con intended to result in the exiling of Desmond to keep
him away from Penny
- Is Malkin (the psychic) a fraud as he claims he is to Mr.
Eko? Or is he legit as per his visions / instructions for Claire and her baby?
- The Smoke monster is a judge of some kind, but what is the
criteria for letting someone live or die? Is the criteria whether or not said
someone has or will have the island’s best interests in mind? Was Smokey taking
pictures of Juliet when she was hiding from it with Kate in season 3? Does Ben
know how to control it or can he just summon it? How come Smokey cannot rise
above the Sonic fence surrounding the barracks?
- Was the DHARMA food drop from another time or does DHARMA
continue to get food drops in present day?
- Did Radsinsky really kill himself in the Swan Station or
was he murdered?
-What were ‘the others’ watching, when Cindy told Jack that
everyone had gathered outside of his cage to watch?
-Will we ever find out who programmed the jamming device in
the Looking Glass station? (supposedly a musician)
-Who asks Locke for help from within Jacob’s cabin when he
first visits it with Ben?
-Who is in Jacob’s cabin when Hurley finds it? There are two
people. One appears likely to be Christian, the other comes to the window and
shows only his eye.
-What will come of Desmond being Farraday’s constant?
-Why is Richard mad at young Locke for choosing the knife as
one of his possessions when he visits him as a child?
- Richard said to Sun that he remembered meeting the DHARMA crew from the 70’s
because he watched them all die. Not simply that he watched them, but met them. I wonder what/if there is any
significance to that statement?
-According to ‘the others’, Jack and Kate were not on
Jacob’s list. Who is on Jacob’s list? Are the lists lies to help Jacob
manipulate the islands leader? If the lists are real, why did he interact with those
people off the island if they were not on his list? Are the people he touched
off the island the people he wants on his side for the war or was he just
setting everyone’s course in motion?
-Who was the ‘smart man’ that Hawking refers to that figured
out that the island was always moving?
-Will the war involve living vs. the dead?
-Why were all the DHARMA notebooks from the Pearl Station unclaimed?
-Why can dead people appear as living people? - Is
this the ‘Man in Black’ posing as other dead people? for example the version of
Yemi that speaks to Eko on the island says ‘you talk to me as if I am your
brother!’ (indicating that he is in fact not) – How does the new inhabitant
of the dead have knowledge of all of their memories and personality?
- What is Lapidus a candidate for?
-Why is the 815 survivors’ former camp wrecked when it is
found during the time jumping?
-Why do the barracks in ‘present day’ (after Ajira 316
crashed) look like the DHARMA Initiative was just recently eliminated?
*SOME SMALL PREDICTIONS and
a few BOLD FACED BIG PREDICTIONS
-Hurley is the origin of the first transmission to be heard
with the numbers in it.
-Libby is in the psych ward because she was dealing with her
-We will find out who was in the car(s) that crashed on the
bridge when Jack was about to commit suicide in season 3. Perhaps Ilana and
Bram from Ajira 316.
- The series will end with Jack’s eye.
-Kate is pregnant – There had to be a pregnant woman on flight 316 as a
proxy for Claire
-Oceanic Characters involved in the incident will get to see/live their
lives over again in an alternate or parallel universe, ala Desmond after he
turned the failsafe key on the hatch.(Much like the episode ‘Flashes Before
Your Eyes’) – this alternate or parallel universe may be the new narrative
device instead of flash forwards and flashbacks.
-Somehow Penny or young Charlie dies (perhaps because of Ben) and
Desmond will be able to travel back in time and change the past.
*Jacob is the villain, MIB is the hero. Jacob enjoys the fighting, the
killing, the chaos, corruption, etc. – He brings people to the island to
manipulate them into these bad situations.*
