I don't usually blog about television, but last night's LOST episode had me replaying scenes and freeze-framing spots to try to figure things out. This morning, I have some thoughts and I just had to join in the conversation.
1. Love me some Hurley. How cool was he this week? Some personal favorite lines: "I'm a Candidate. Why don't YOU go back to the courtyard?" "Very old school, man." "I just lied to a samurai."
2. Claire. It's clear to me that we're supposed to see her the same way we saw Rousseau. Yeah, I get that. But does anyone else find her hard to believe as the craziest one on the island? I'm not sure if it's the British accent or her minuscule size, but yeah, I'm not buying it. That is, until she threw an axe into an innocent guy's heart. And who taught her to stitch up a wound like that? (perhaps her father?)
3. Reflections. Did you notice how many there were this time? Jack in the mirror at home, Jacob gazing into the Siloam-like pool, David's pictures on the mirror, the lighthouse wheel.
4. WHO THE HECK IS COMING TO THE ISLAND? I have some options:
Desmond (though I can't figure out why he would be),
Widmore (because he hasn't shown up in a while and we don't really have any resolve of his story line),
Eloise (this is my guess because the lighthouse wheel looks so much like the image on the floor of her lab/house/study/chambers/lair.
The only problem with Eloise is that Jacob says, "HE'LL find another way to get here." One other option I've considered is that perhaps Walt is on his way. How many times in his tenure on the show did people mention that he was special? Or that he had a gift? (Hmmm.... sort of like Dagon says of Jack's son.)
Ok, and here's the icing on my LOST cupcake for the week.
On the lighthouse wheel, we see"Kwon" (a bunch of crossed out names) "15 Ford" "16 Jarrah" (a bunch of crossed out names) "23 Shepard". Jack is 23. It's his number.
4,8,15,16,23,42. Six numbers, Oceanic Six. Including Sayid, Jack, and Kwon. If that's the case "Kwon" isn't Jin; it's Sun. The only problem with my theory is that Sawyer wasn't a part of the Oceanic Six. Any thoughts on this?
The other question it begs is "who will be left?" If these are candidates, which of the numbers will become whatever/whoever they are candidates "for"? I foresee a lot of death this season.
