How “Lost” Will End (My Theory)

This is what we will discover during the last half-hour of the very last episode:

The Losties are the original Others. The Others we’ve been wondering about since Season 1 are their descendants.

I have nothing to back this up, except the time travel concept.  It’s just a hunch.


Now that I’ve finally seen the episode, a few Random Thoughts:

  • Watching the stream from wasn’t half bad. HD quality picture, 30-second commercial breaks…if I didn’t have to wait until Thursdays, I might watch Lost this way every week.
  • I have such a crush on Elizabeth Mitchell.
  • Does Faraday really love Charlotte, or is he just trying to distract her from what he knows is going to happen to her shortly?
  • The woman on the island that Faraday says looks familiar – I’ve seen some hypothesize that it’s his mother, but I must say that if I ran into my own mother 50 years ago, I’m pretty sure I’d recognize her. Of course, much has been made of Faraday’s memory problems. Still, it seems a stretch.
  • Faraday doesn’t seem the type to me to put a girl in a time-traveling coma and skip to the States.
  • Des and Penny named their baby after Charlie. Aww.
  • Speaking of Charlies: young Charlie Widmore on the island! Quite a revelation. How does he know the island better than anyone else, as he claimed? Where did he – as well as Alpert and the rest –  come from?
  • Faraday’s plan is to bury Jughead. Could this somehow be tied to the fertility problems in the island’s future? Could that be the reason for the radiation suits worn around the Swan? Was entering the numbers into the computer every 108 minutes resetting the bomb’s trigger in some way?
  • Now we know why Alpert visited the hospital when Locke was born. When will we find out the meaning of the objects he showed him later in his childhood, and why he was so disappointed when John picked up the knife?

Man, I love this stuff!

Don’t You Hate It…

…when you tell your TiVo to Season Pass Lost, and you check the settings to make sure that it only records first-run episodes, and ignore that the default setting is to only keep three episodes at a time, and you neglect to delete the three hours from the week before, and ABC calls the premiere “Because You Left/The Lie” so tonight when they broadcast “The Lie” before “Jughead”, your TiVo thinks it’s a new episode so it records it, and now you have “Destiny Calls”, “Because You Left/The Lie” and “The Lie” recorded and that’s your three episodes, so “Jughead” isn’t recorded? Don’t you just hate that?

Kate and Ben?

So I’m into the Season 4 DVD set of Lost, and I’ve made it as far as the Bonus Features. One that I just finished is called “The Ultimate Flash Forward”, which is a generous sampling of the FF from last season (and the Season 3 Finale) presented in chronological order.

Something that jumped out at me: when Jack and Kate met at the airport, he told her that he’d been using the Golden Passes they’d been given. He’d jump on a flight, have a meal at the destination, then fly home. Kate asked him why. He said because he was hoping the plane would crash.

FF a couple of days to Ben and Jack in the funeral parlor. Ben says tells Jack he hears that Jack has been flying a lot lately, hoping his plane would crash. Huh? Who told him that?

And when Ben tells him they all have to go back to the island, and Jack says “Sayid–I don’t even know where Sayid is.” (Pause) “Hurley… is insane.” (Pause) “Sun blames me for…” (Pause) “and then Kate…She won’t even talk to me anymore,” Ben quickly assures him, “Perhaps I can help you with that.”

Am I looking too close at things that aren’t there? It’s easy to do…

My Faraday Theory

(This entry requires a basic knowledge of the ABC television show Lost. If you’re not familiar with it, keep moving, because you won’t know what or who I’m talking about!)

OK, so I’ve been thinking about this, and I had an “Aha!” moment earlier today while discussing last night’s episodes with an online friend.

If you watch, then you know that an episode last season opened with Faraday weeping while watching a news report about the discovery of the fake 815 (the so-far unidentified woman with him is referred to on several forums and wiki sites I’ve seen as his “caretaker”). What would cause such an emotional reaction? He said he didn’t know why he was crying, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t know.

Anyway, something I have yet to see any comments on occurred during “The Constant“. When Faraday was explaining to Desmond what a constant is, he says (this is a direct quote, found on a Lost transcript site), “When you go to the future, nothing there is familiar. So if you want to stop this, then you need to find something there…something that you really, really care about….that also exists back here, in 1996.”

At the end of the episode we see Faraday open his journal to the following page:

If Desmond is Faraday’s constant, Daniel must really, really care about him. What’s up with that?

My guess: we’ll learn that Faraday is either Desmond’s father, or his son. With all the time traveling he does, I don’t know for sure which it is, but if he can show up at the Orchid when it’s under construction in the ’70s, then he certainly could have fathered a son of Desmond’s age.
