LOST Thoughts: What I’d Like to See in Seasons 5 & 6

In a few months, we’ll be delving into the final third of LOST. To know it is ending soon is both exhilarating and heartbreaking.

I’m fairly certain that we’ll get the answers to questions like ” What is the Island?”, “What is the Smoke Monster?” and ” What went wrong after the O6 left?” But before LOST “closes its doors forever”, here is a “shopping list” of some goodies ( in various levels of “importance”) I hope I can pick up on the way out. (These are in no particular order.)

1. The Red Shirt Episode : Not “Nikki and Paulo” but actual extras , folks like “Log Carrying Guy”, “Blue Stripped Half-Shirt Girl” and “Bald Guy That Looks Like Lance Kerwin“. They crashed on the Island as well, and as Arzt said “We’re people too”. I think it would be cool to see some humorous, but significant, connections to the other Losties and the Island that would explain their “longevity” .

2. The Vincent episode : If this one actually sees the light of day, I suspect it will be near, if not THE, very end. That dog’s up to something…I can FEEL it! 🙂

3. The Black Rock Episode: Big ship in the middle of the Island that is of interest to Widmore…Yeah, needs some airtime.

    That is an insanely good list. Wow.. where to start.
    Here are the ones I really care about:
    1 3 5 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 21 22 23 24 25 26 28 29 31 33 35 37 38 39 41 42 44 45 47 48 49 50 52 53 54 55 57 58 59 60 62 63 64 65 66 67 69 70 71 72 73 74 76 83 84 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 95 96 97 98 100 102 103 104 107
    That’s most of them.
    You know what would be really fun, trying to answer (in other qords quess at) these questions before season 5 started. That’s where I get most of my theories, I force myself to think of tough questions and keep on thinking about them until I answer them.

    Hi Izi,
    That does sound like fun. See how close we are to the “real” answers. 🙂

    Reading your “The Whole Truth” review today reminded me of something I forgot to add to #38, so I revised it a bit. Thanks!

    And thanks for the link too, Izi. 8)

    […] My fellow WordPress, Lost blogger (or Lost, WordPress blogger, whichever you prefer) recently put up a list of questions/mysteries she would like answered before the end of the show.  She did an amazing job collecting all of the best mysteries together, I suggest you take a look here. […]

    I think #53 was answered in the DVD extras or in the voiceover narration.
    It was a binding spell – the type used to prevent a dangerous person from doing harm to others.

    Interesting, I never knew that. Someday I should watch those commentaries.

    In #82, I thought that the man who was fall was Locke when he was pushed out the window by his father.

    Hi Miss Scarlet,
    Do you mean “narration” in one of the recap specials? I’ll have to recheck the Season 3 again to see if it’s there. Thanks!
    And thanks for your comment. 🙂

    * Update: Just checked Season 3 Commentary of ” Man Behind the Curtain” and Carlton was saying that it was kind of a “containment circle” and that Ben & Jacob both have “power” over each other.
    So,it got me thinking of a new question that is related and will “replace” it (sort of 😉 ). Thank you again, Miss Scarlett 🙂

    Hi lvgirl,

    I believe that ,according to the story’s timeline, Locke was already paralyzed before Hurley won the lottery.

    But a nice observation, lvgirl. Thought the same thing when I first saw it.

    Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    For#60, what other places besides the caves were there dolls on the island?

  12. 12

    mswendy said,

    Hi Kyle,
    There are several dolls inside/outside the cave from the wreckage. Kate grabs a doll and she and Jack get “caught in a net” (Season Two, SOS). Sawyer is almost ready to pick up a doll on another occasion, but Kate stops him, admitting that she picked one up and got caught in a net with Jack. Sawyer learns it’s an actual net 🙂 (Season Two finale). Danielle seems to be the one that is using them for some of her booby traps. (Interestingly, she used a log wrapped in a blanket when Charlie picked up what he thought was Aaron, instead of a doll, in the Season One finale.) But Charlie finds a hula doll in the jungle in Season Three (Catch 22).

    And there are other dolls of signifigance: Ben and Annie’s dolls, Nikki and Paulo’s diamonds were hidden inside a doll. The Room 23 film had pictures of doll faces in it. Charlie’s dad chopping off dolls’ heads in one of his visions. (If there are others I missed, let me know.)

    Just wondering what’s up with all the dolls 😉 .

    Thanks, Kyle for the comment. 🙂

    Kyle said,

    Okay I remember all those now. I think the Rousseau trap dolls were supposed to lure back her child for capture, in case she was still out there.

    It gets increasingly more difficult to remember all the little side stuff as the mythology grows each season. That was part of the reason that I wrote the list…”kick start” my brain a bit during the hiatus…lol. I appreciate any help. So, thanks, Kyle ! 🙂 Also, excellent thought about Danielle using the dolls to “catch” Alex.

    That’s what so great about all the LOST fans. Helping each other out in our mutual “obessession” . 8)

    great list..hope they answer all of’em. i aslo wanted to add something to your list.who is the peson that Elsa was working for in ‘the economist’!

  16. 16

    mswendy said,

    Thanks, Kasra! 🙂

    I hope they answer them all too. But even if they do, I’m still probably going to have other questions that I’ll think of that they never got around to…lol. Such is LOST…and one of the many reasons why I enjoy it so much.

    Excellent question about “The Economist”! I’ll see if I can shimmy it in the list somewhere. I’m trying to see if I can keep it at 108. If I don’t, oh well! The question you raised is too notable not to add.

    Thanks for the comment. 🙂
