LOST Thoughts : The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham ( Or Whatever Happened to Johnny Locke?)

mswendygravitar2

The war is on. And it sounds like lost-locke-t1Locke is ” The General”. Except he (and we) don’t know what side he’s fighting for.

Some Questions :

Who is telling the truth?
Who is evil?
Who is dead?
Who are those people Walt dreamed about who want to hurt Locke?
Who was taken in “the flash” and who wasn’t (and did it divide them into “sides”) ?
Who is that woman that took off with franklapidus-tFrank?
Who is Ms. Hawking… really?

Some Repeats :

Locke and lost-sawyer-t1Sawyer having to bite down of the same stick and twine contraption, then passing out( Locke for his leg/ Sawyer for the needle in ” Every Man for Himself” / Season 3)

Children playing football/soccer in village, reminiscent of the day lost-eko-tMr. Eko was taken by the warlords in ” 23rd Psalm”/ Season 2 ( I wonder if that is telling of what “side” Widmore is on?)

Both Locke and ben-t13Ben vomited when they reached Tunisia after turning the frozen donkey wheel ( There’s No Place Like Home/ Season 4)

Locke strangled by Ben, just like his father, Anthony Cooper, was strangled by Sawyer (The Brig/Season 3).

lost-hurley-tHurley seeing Locke by the same tree as lost-charlie-t1Charlie ( I wonder if “Mr. Eko” first showed up there too….and possibly even more “people” and if it is some sort of “hot spot”)

We’ve heard rumblings of war and lost-jack-t2Jack wondering “How long would it take to train an army” ( The Hunting Party/Season Two)

Same graveyard that Helen is in is the same one that Anthony Cooper was “buried” in ( Lockdown/Season 2) Could this be another “fake” death/marker, like Cooper or Jin or will Helen actually RIP ?

Jack and people in car accidents ( Locke/ TLADOJB, shannon-tShannon’s father, Adam Rutherford and Sarah ( Man of Science, Man of Faith/Season 2, Mrs. Arlen and son, Through the Looking Glass/ Season 3, Beth (with child) All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues/ Season 1)

Some Clues :

Hurley painting The Great Sphinx of Giza. The Sphinx has much lore behind in, in both history and mythology. But it is also a symbol of Army Intelligence. Could this also be a place where one of those “pockets” are that Ms. Hawking spoke about in “316”?

Copy of 1954 LIFE Magazine ( April 19, 1954) The Awesome Fireball hydrogen testing cover and inside picture of 1954 monster movie “Creature From the Black Lagoon” , which also had the mysterious deaths of an entire science team.

Two more of those rectangular boxes are on the desk in the Hydra Station. What are they? ( See Nancy Drew’s article for more info. πŸ™‚ )

LOST Poll : Goober’s Disappearing Act

I know Katelost-kate-t1 told lost-jack-t2Jack that he should never ask about what happened to him…but she never said I can’t ask you. πŸ™‚

LOST Video : Desmond Contacts … Sesame Street?!

mswendygravitar8 I think this was a deleted scene of Desmond’s mis-dial before he reached Penny.
I still say they should have tried to shimmy it into ” The Constant”. πŸ˜‰

LOST Thoughts : 316 (or What’s Old is New Again)

mswendygravitar8

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 KJV)

Sacrifice…substitution…surrender…

This seemed to be the theme of this past episode ” 316″ .

lost-locke-t1Locke : Surrendered himself to the Island’s “expectations”
Substituted christianshephard-tChristian Shephard with himself
Sacrificed his life as a means of doing that

lost-jack-t2Jack : Surrendered his need for “proof”
Substituted the “ridiculous” with ” will it work”
Sacrificed his pride , changed the shoes and read the letter

Other “surrenders” …

lost-sayid-t1Sayid : Surrendered to the Marshall (which got him on the plane)
lost-kate-t1Kate: Surrendered Aaron to something/someone unknown
sun-tSun: Surrendered her thirst for revenge
lost-hurley-tHurley: Surrendered to the idea of having Ben around
ben-t13Ben: Surrendering to the fact that he can legitimately get beat at his own game ( as well as just beat πŸ™‚ )
franklapidus-tFrank : Surrendering to the knowledge that ” We aren’t going to Guam, are we?” 8)

And there were substitutions galore in the flight 815 reenactment:

Jack for Locke in his “faith journey”
Kate for Jack in the “skeptic” role
Hurley carrying a guitar case like lost-charlie-t1Charlie
Kate with the Marshall is now Sayid with the Marshall
Kate may possibly be “The pregnant girl” like claire-tClaire ( and in turn, may prove perilous)
Ben was late like Hurley
Jack with letter/ lost-sawyer-t1Sawyer with letter
Frank for Seth , as the pilot
Man in line at airport lending sympathy to Jack for his loss… standing in for Ana Lucia
Sun with ring, hopeful about husband, lost-jin-tJin, being alive … Rose/Bernard
Jack and Claire half/brother & sister, boone-t1Boone and shannon-tShannon step brother and sister
Kate with issue with not being with her “son” Aaron / Michaellost-michael-t1 and walt-t2Walt
Jack with substance abuse problem/ Charlie with substance abuse problem
Jack’s letter “reappearing”/ Sayid’s picture of Nadia “reappearing”
Ben and Walt possibly having the same “specialness” , discovered in childhood (?)
Jack and Kate in estranged relationship/Jin and Sun
(IMO) Awkward “moment” between Jack and Kate, prior to flight, reminiscent of Boone/Shannon (different context, though)
Jack saving others through burning wreckage… now jumping off of waterfall to rescue ( Fire + Water {?} )

And in the end, they all sacrificed what they thought they wanted, finally being “home”, to what was “supposed” to happen, being on the Island.

But desmond-t1Desmond… he’s through with the Island, brotha! At least, for now anyways. πŸ˜‰

LOST Thoughts : Daniel’s Post Nasal Skip ?

mswendygravitar8

So far, who among our Losties has had nosebleeds on the Island that haven’t been blown up or shot with a flaming arrow? ( Rose and Bernard, still in question πŸ™‚ )

charlotte-tCharlotte
miles-tMiles
juliet-tJuliet
lost-sawyer-t1Sawyer

If Daniel danielfaraday-t is correct in his theory about time being a factor in that the further in the past and/ or longevity on the Island, the sooner and more severely the symptoms would occur. But where does this place lost-locke-t1Locke and Daniel? Maybe Locke was somehow “blocked” from the affects by being down near the donkey wheel and has now, returned “home”. But that doesn’t explain Daniel.

As we know from this season’s first episode ” Because You Left”, Daniel was on the Island when the Dharma Initiative were constructing the Orchid and filming the Arrow Station video ( Starring Dr. Marvin Candle aka Pierre Chang) . That was in the early 80’s, roughly thirty years ago. And from all indications, Daniel was that crazy man Charlotte saw during her childhood , warning her to never return. My best guess, is that this might have occurred just prior to The Purge, twelve years, now almost thirteen years earlier ( according to Horace Goodspeed).
Daniel was also exposed to heavy doses of electromagnetism/radiation, in both his lab and now, being near “Jughead”, the leaking H bomb in 1954. And yet, he didn’t experience what desmond-tDesmond, Minkowski, etc did on the Freighter ( at least that we’re aware of) .

Is it because he is Ms. Hawking’s son? Is this another form of being “special”? Is Faraday, like some are speculating, similar to richard-t7Richard in being originally even further in the future than even present Island time? Therefore, Daniel is not affected, age-wise or symptom-wise because all this hasn’t “happened” yet for him? Is it because of the “work” he still might have to do?

Hey, who knows? This could all be straightened out after tonight’s episode.

Until then… Daniel should really consider keeping a Little (Time) Travelers Tissue Pack close by. πŸ™‚
