LOST Thoughts: “What I Want To See” List Revised

Heath and I, along with Axel and Aaron from The LOST Mythos Theorycast, went over a post I wrote back in Oct. 2008 about what ” What I Want To See In Seasons 5 & 6″ prior to the start of last season. We discussed how some of them were answered and how some of the others could be… or if they ever will be. If you would like to hear the episode, click here ( LRNow, Episode # 78 108 Questions for Season 6) Many of these are still on the list but I will be replacing the ones that have been answered ( or somewhat answered…lol) with some new things that were raised this last season. But mostly, for good or bad, stuff I just want resolved before the final LOST thud. 😉

Again, these are in random order of “importance” ( and Heath added some too)

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.

LOST Video : Careful Observations

Saw this video a while back…. then forgot where I saw it… then remembered again. And here it IS! 🙂 It contains some peculiar inverted images that have appeared on the show. According to the maker of this video, they were not altered. These are ” AS IS” from the original episodes. Discuss… 8)

LOST Thoughts : An Economic Analysis

More and more, I am moving away from the idea of Charles Widmore being ” The Economist”. From what little we know of him, he is a man who doesn’t like technology and is ( according to Ben) the one who is behind Nadia’s death. From ” The Incident”, we know that there was another person there… and they weren’t driving the SUV.

In ” The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham”, Charles gives Locke a phone that he only needs to dial “23” to contact him. Sounds like pretty advanced technology to me!

In ” He’s Our You”, when Ilana captured Sayid, she claimed that she was working for the family of Peter Avalina, the man Sayid was sent, by Ben, to kill on the golf course. Was bringing Sayid back the favor that was asked of her by a certain someone, while she was in the hospital?

Hmm… doesn’t like technology… behind Nadia’s death… knows Ilana. Could The Economist be …. Jacob?

We know that Ben wanted to have all those who worked for The Economist “picked off ” ? Where these hits Ben’s doing or were these orders that were given to him, like assumedly, with The Purge?

The cabin has been in question of who has been in there, as of late. Ilana said Jacob hadn’t been there in a while. And we know that she did know him. She and Jacob had a face to face meeting at least one. So, is whoever was staying in the cabin, actually giving the orders for those assassinations? Is this the same one who needed “help” from Locke the one who wanted to “take care” of the people from Ajira? Was this the “Longest Con” of them all?

So, in the end, is The Economist actually going to turn out to be…this guy?

LOST Parody: Kiss Me ( aka The Triangle Song)

Personally, the shipper stuff in LOST doesn’t really bother me. I just consider it all part of the story and character motivation. Just felt like having a little fun with the one that started it all. 🙂

(If you would like to listen to more LOST parodies, click here). 🙂

KISS ME ( aka The Triangle Song)

Kiss me
Out in The Jungle of Mystery
Nicely, and you’ll get that inhaler
Quickly… Shannon is getting worse
You should be glad that I’m not greedy

Oh, kiss me
Been tortured by an Iraqi
He beat me alongside Dr. Jack
Shoots are in my hands
Under my nails, threats to poke out my eye
Silver blade sparkling
So, kiss me

Kiss me
Blew up my family’s farmhouse
Oopsie! Just set my dad on fire
Treating Sawyer with mashed up fruit
He’s passed out but speaks in my father’s voice

Oh, kiss me
Cuz I just saw my horsie
Quickly… I think I’m crackin’ up
Hallucinating now
Strikes me that I’m not really the best judge
Daddy Issues happening
So, kiss me

Kiss me
Cuz we’re caged up like bunnies
No, me.. cuz I gave you a ring
Listen here, you three
Strikes me as you might be needing special help
Psych profiles pending
Therapy… therapy….
(Spoken: Please, for me? No? How about for Aaron? Clementine? No? Um…ok. )
Kiss me

(Parody of the song “Kiss Me ” by Sixpence None the Richer, Written by Matt Slocum, 1999, Album: Sixpence None the Richer, Squint Entertainment . New lyrics by Wendy Lincoln, 2008)

LOST Thoughts : Some Pre Season 6 Wacky Theories

Part of the fun of LOST is making theories: Large and small, serious and silly, and sharing them with each other. I had one of these exchanges a couple days ago with other fellow fans/podcasters. And I thought I’d post some ideas that I wrote here too. Some of these thoughts are built off of old theories. Some things just occurred to me now.

Locke’s Death

I’m still sticking with the Locke was strangled like his dad and was dead. Like “Dead is Dead” dead. My crackpot theory ( or just wishful thinking…lol) is just like he was healed before when he touched the Island, he will be again. But then we’d have two “Lockes” running around…kinda cheesy. But if this happens, somehow the writers will defy logic and make it cool…lol.

But then I came up with how they could do it. Locke falls out of the box. He touches the Island and is “healed”. Jacob’s Nemesis seems to need a dead body to do whatever it is to appear as John Locke. Once Locke is alive again, Nemesis’ actual identity is revealed ( and we might have Titus Welliver too for the rest of Season Six. Yay! 🙂 ) But it won’t happen until Walt’s ” You- were- standing- on- the- beach,- in- a -suit,- with- people- all- around- you, -wanting -to -hurt -you” Dream comes true… by way of Flock.

Christian’s Death and Recreation of Circumstances

However, I have always thought that Christian Shephard’s death was suspect.

When Christian saw Claire and told her that he had “ways” to help her mother die ( at least, that seemed to be the implication) , I’m guessing that he also had “ways” to appear dead and “come back to life”. And it might be through a method similar to the Medusa spider venom or a modification of it that he was able to create ( Seeing that he had most likely been on the Island before) .

He supposedly died from a massive heart attack brought on by drinking/getting in a fight with someone. But no autopsy scars?! ( Juliet’s ex husband got hit by a bus and they gave him an autopsy! 🙂 ) Also the guy who showed Jack his father dead body in the morgue …was also at the crash site. See man with white hair holding his arm, shouting ” Move away from the gas! ” ( Actor Geoff Heise) Hmmm… Wonder why he’d be there? I’m guessing it wasn’t for budgetary reasons. He had lines and wasn’t just someone in the background. Was this man an accomplice? Dr. FrankenShephard’s Igor? One can only hope. 😉

How about this : What if he was playing the role of “the dead guy” that needed to be on Flight 815 to get back to the Island just like Locke was playing his “role”? That Ajira 316 was not the first time “the circumstances of a flight having to be recreated as best as you can” ?

Ben’s Box

I’ve been thinking that the box was the box of chocolate with the gun that Sun received , along with the papers/ pictures of Jack and Ben near the van. Just like he did with the whole Kate & Aaron “lawsuit”, I think Ben gave them to Sun so she would come to him. Then Ben could show her Jin’s ring and get her back to the Island. And where did that gun go after Sun decided to go with Ben and Jack to see Ms. Hawking? Why into Ben’s pocket, of course, so he could go and take care of that promise he had made to a friend ( i.e. killing Penny…or at least he thought he was going to ) .

As mentioned above, these are wacky. Do with them what you will. 😉
