Let me start by saying that I am the type of gal that will read the first chapter of a book, then flip to the back and read the ending. I will then try to figure out how the story gets from point A at the beginning to point B at the end. Now, with that said, once we have the story of LOST all wrapped up nice and neat (you hear me LOST writers….nice and neat!!!!!) I will need to watch it all again beginning to end.
I liked tonight's episode. I do not think too many new questions were raised and we were given some answers. We have the Oceanic Six arriving back home to friends and family (except for poor Kate). They try to get back to some type of normalcy. Sun seeks revenge on her father by taking over his business. Do you think the second person who is responsible for Jin’s death is the bald man she had an affair with? Or do you think she blames herself? Jack holds a service for his father where he learns Claire is his sister and therefore Aaron is his nephew. Hurley’s family throw a surprise island themed party and his father gives Hurley his old car back. Then he sees the numbers again!!! Ahhhhh….I can understand why he ran away!
This is my wish list for the season finale:
1. Who is in the coffin? The survivors said 8 people survived the crash but there is only six…..who are the two they are missing? And is one of them in the coffin? I think it is Michael in the coffin and that makes me so sad. I really need Walt to forgive Michael. I loved those early scenes of Walt and Michael really bonding.
2. What is going to happen to the people who are on the island once Locke does something with the orchid? Right now, I think it is interesting the way people are paired up…..Jack is with Sawyer; we know Jack gets off the island and Sawyer does not…..same with Jin, Sun, Desmond, and Michael. See….this is where I would flip to the end of the book!!
3. I need the, well for lack of a better term, ‘teams’ explained to me. In simple terms please. We have the survivors of the crash, the people with works for Mr. Whitmore (who are all a bit angry and wear way too much eyeliner), the others…Ben, the man who never ages, etc. But then who does the ‘whispering’ in the jungle. I would like that cleared up too.
There seems to be this cyclic theme and I think everything is going to repeat itself. This is an interesting theory I found on a message board:
They say something happens in the first 10 seconds of the pilot episode...well this may be it..
all episodes have been given a title..usually about the character(s) the show is focusing on...well the first episode was titled "pilot"...now at first many of us thought it was just named this because it was the first episode of a series...aka the "pilot episode"...however it was named this for another reason....because the episode was about the pilot...mr. jack shepherd...
now this is where it gets fun...
if you rewatch the first episode of lost on season one..the "pilot" episode...you see jack,running through the jungle....he gets the beach...the camera spins around him once...and you see nothing but beach....the camera does another half-a-spin around him...and poof...there is the plane wreckage and survivors...
interested yet?keep reading..
when you camera does the half-a-spin move..the audience thinks it is still jack shepherd in present time...however it is jack shepherd the passenger on oceanic flight 815...not the pilot jack shepherd?
confused?let me try to clear it up...
in one episode jack said he wanted to take some flying lessons after he got off the island...which is what he did..and in the "pilot" episode it was actually showing jack shepherd...crashing back on the island a second time...running back to the beach to see if everyone was still there...which they werent...maybe they went off into the jungle?maybe they all died?who knows...
Update: I found this on youtube.com:
I mean, is Jack who is waking up in the jungle, the Jack from the future??
So, what did you think?
What is your wish list for the season finale??
There are many others (pardon the pun) who have thoughts on LOST...check them out at Rocks in my Dryer.
Update: Trent from Pink is the New Blog has his recap up. He has a fuzzy screen cap of someone else sitting on the plane. I thought I saw someone next to Jack!! Hmmmmm, who could it be??
