If LOST was on ABC’s TGIFriday lineup. (Not only can he break your neck with his ankles, I hear Sayid does an uncanny impression of Bullwinkle as well. So, look out , Uncle Joey! 😉 ) ( Made for youtube by CinematicESP)

It was bugging me that Juliet knew that Sawyer killed Frank the Shrimp Guy in Australia (as well as Sayid’s past “indiscretions” in his homeland) when I was watching it live back in Season Three.(One of Us). Someone was discussing it recently ( I can’t remember if it was a podcast or a blog. I apologize. Let me know if it was you 🙂 ) about that they had a lot of info on Jack . Ben had Patchy in the Flame Hatch being able to monitor Juliet’s sister Rachel and her son, Julian (and probably how they got the Red Sox game too 😉 ) But no one knew that Sawyer killed Frank, not even the Australian police. So how could anyone possibly know that he did it?
Then it hit me. Hibbs knew.
Hibbs (played by Robert Patrick) was the conman that Sawyer was set up by in “Outlaws”, Season One. (In fact, I had my theory that he was the real Sawyer. Would have fit too. Oh, well! 🙂 ) He used James’ thirst for revenge, to “settle a score” with Frank for not paying up ,by telling him the Shrimp Man was the real Sawyer.
Who is Hibbs? What was ” The Tampa Job” ? My guess is that you’ll probably find his name next to Anthony Cooper’s (subset: Florida) in Ben’s rolodex that he keeps in his secret hieroglyphic closet. (Maybe this is some of the stuff he and Juliet would discuss over ham? 😉 )
Now…who’s their “man” in Bozrah?
I’ve been contemplating, from fairly early in the series , how Vincent and Smokey haven’t been seen sniffing around the same Dharma food drop together. Why is that? Is this because they are one in the same? Or of similar “make up” but from different sides?
Locke spent the episode “Tabula Rasa” (Season One) fashioning what turns out to be a dog whistle to summon a “lost” Vincent. Whistles of this kind are known for emitting a pitch that is heard by a dog but not humans. In contrast, a loud whistle blares, much like one that is heard at a factory, alerting the Losties of the “monster” when it makes its first appearance in the Pilot episode. (Rose said later that it sounded familiar and that she was from the Bronx, NY). Is a person/thing “calling” the smoke monster?
Who/what is doing that?
Some have claimed that when you look in the pupil of Jack’s eye in the beginning of the Pilot episode, you can see a reflection of Smokey. Now if this is true, who do we see that is supposed to wake up Jack “because he’s got work to do” according to Christian? It’s Vincent. In that line of thinking, does Smokey appear first, then Vincent later? Or is Vincent in “monster” form first, then back to a dog, when he approaches Jack?
Then there’s, as Locke calls it, “a sonic weapons fence”. Smokey seems to be adverse to whatever is coursing between the pylons. Is this like one of those invisible pet fences meant to keep the dog/cat from roaming to and from the yard? Does the Island just have a “Super Size Me” one? However,was Patchy’s zapfest just an Others theatrical production? Fake beards..why not fake blood (and with a “Thank You” no less) Was this much like Ben knowing that Locke would inevitably blow up the sub? (But there is always the option that the fence is lethal and Patchy was “on the clock” for the Island, considering the harpoon to the chest/grenade in TTLG, Season Three finale. Oh, LOST….how you taunt us so. *hug*)
And then there is Danielle’s term of Smokey being the ” Island’s security system”. I bet if you hunt around long enough…. you’ll probably find a “Beware of Dog” sign nailed to a coconut tree that got torched during the hatch implosion. 😉
What did Locke see the first time he met up with “what is knocking down the trees” ? Something beautiful. The second time? Horrifying. But he still wanted to go with it. Makes me wonder about that story he told about his sister Jeannie that “turned” into a dog. A yellow dog. ( Outlaws, Season One) It was a “sign”, or representation, of the afterlife (at least his foster mother thought so). He said ” Well, that would be silly” when asked if he thought the dog was his sister. But he was with, assumably, less receptive listeners (Kate and Sawyer) to his brand of “belief”. Did he just pretend to not believe ? Was the finding of Vincent a two fold task: Get in good with Michael and his “special” son, Walt and reinforce his now energized “faith” in his understanding of the supernatural? Or did John “find” Vincent because he wanted to “keep his enemies closer”? Does the Blast Door map just solidify this?
That’s right…happy, cute puppy = Cerubus. Or is Vincent the anti-Devil Dog, i.e. the Island’s Twinkie? And as we know…Twinkies…live …forever. 8)
Vincent (played by Madison)
Is he “dark” or is he “light” . Say, gang! Maybe we can get him to “solve the mystery” with a Dharma Initiative Vinnie Snack? (Ehheeheeheeheehee)
Happy LOST Thought of the Day : Michael telling Walt he’ll look for Vincent as soon as it stops raining.
A little bit ago, I wrote about the options of who could be Adam and Eve in a past LOST Thought , “Locke Nickname Origin #1” . On The Tailsection, it was being discussed about the possibilities of who the cave’s original occupants could be. Someone mentioned (at least that is what context I think it was being mentioned. Sorry if I misread) that it could be Christian Shepard and Claire Littleton . This got me thinking that these could be very likely candidates for the “job”. (And that that on most “typical” shows, the two people would be a “romantic” couple. LOST, typically, is anything but. 🙂 )
After Season 4’s “Cabin Fever” we learn, that for whatever reason, Claire and Christian are “hanging out”. So much so, that she abandons Aaron, leaving him behind with Sawyer and Miles (“Where he’s supposed to be”?) Will she forever be Christian’s “sidekick” in weirdness? And if that is the case, going back to Season One’s “White Rabbit”, Christian (or a very good simulation) is the one who shows Jack where the caves are , along with the water. In the next episode “House of the Rising Sun”, when they go back, they discover “Adam and Eve”. Is this a clue, as well as the empty coffin, that this is Christian’s (and Claire’s ) true “final resting place”?
I don’t know, though. Something’s telling me to keep my money on Frogurt and blue stripped half shirt girl. 😉
Walter Lloyd (played by Malcolm David Kelly) : If you were thinking about letting him take care of your pet parakeet while you’re away….you might want to call somebody else.
