LOST Thoughts ( and video) : Sawyer Nickname Origin # 30

lost-sawyer-t1 Sawyer is treking up to the caves to get his medicine ( because Jacklost-jack-t2 doesn’t trust him not to steal it) for the wound Sayidlost-sayid-t1 accidently gave him by stabbing him through the arm ( To be fair, it was only supposed to be a standard round of “fancy stuff” 😉 ) . On Sawyer’s way, he runs into “Tattoo” walt-t2 (Walt) who proceeds to tell him about claire-t Claire and lost-charlie-t1 Charlie’s kidnapping by Ethan “Not in Ontario” Rom. ( All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues, Season One)

Tattoo (played by Herve Villechaize) was the name of the diminutive “right hand man” character with the signature catch phrase of “Da plane! Da plane!”, on the hit ABC series from the late 70’s/early 80’s entitled ” Fantasy Island”. (Which was on right after “The Love Boat” . So, I bet you know where I was every Saturday night. 😉 )

The show was about Mr. Roarke (played by Ricardo Montalban i.e. Star Trek’s Khan) a very mysterious man who owned several white suits and a very exclusive hideaway island resort that would grant the guests whatever their heart desired. But it would always come with a heavy price tag ($50,000 and some sort of supernaturally induced trauma, inflicted upon the guests by Mr. Roarke with the help of Tattoo)

So, if Walt is Tattoo, who is Mr. Roarke ? Is it Mr. Locke lost-locke-t1, as he is fond of calling him? If it is, maybe this is how LOST will end? We’ll see Walt and Locke perform an equally unsettling soft shoe in the last remaining undiscovered Dharma Station. 🙂
