Lost Update – Sweet Dreams
Posted by LOTGK on March 7, 2008
Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something.
Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.
Tonight on As The World Turns, Ben is eternally in love with Juliet, who he kidnapped and is now holding her hostage. But Juliet has not returned her love for him and in fact is having an affair with one of Ben’s right hand men, Goodwin. Meanwhile, Goodwin’s wife Harper confronts Juliet about her affair and threatens that terrible consequences will occur if she continues.
Back at the compound, Juliet shows some skin in a bikini and later in a dripping wet black T-shirt. Juliet asks Jack to please trust and help her. Jack embraces Juliet and tenderly kisses Juliet.
Tune in tomorrow as Kate suspects Jack and Juliet are doing the wild thing and goes into a jealous rage even though she is sleeping with Sawyer, the “Resident bad boy,” and on the verge of being rescued but now everyone will find out about her deep dark secret that she is a murderer.
Sound like a soap opera? Hell, maybe I should change my Lost theory after all these years and go with – Lost is a glorified prime time soap opera. Or…. We could stick with my original theory.
Just what is my theory…..
Although it appears the survivors of Oceanic flight 815 are on a tropical island, they are being deceived. There is no island. The survivors are in a virtual reality laboratory. All the castaways are interconnected to one another sharing each others thoughts, memories, and feelings. While in this virtual reality laboratory, a battery of physical and mental experiments are performed on them. And who is behind all this other than the mysterious government men? Aliens of course.
Let me start off with repeating…..
Ben always lies. When he told Locke that the boat offshore was controlled by Penny’s father, Charles Whitmore, is a lie. Case in point, Penny tells Charlie that it is not her boat. Now it is possible that Whitmore is working without Penny’s knowledge on his own, but I believe it when I say Ben always lies.
We all got introduced to Harper, the “Others” resident psychiatrist and wife of Goodwin. (Goodwin was having an affair with Juliet) She meets Juliet in the jungle and informs her that Ben wants her to stop Charlotte and Daniel from releasing the gas that could kill everyone on the island. Harper then apparently vanishes.
Juliet heard the whispers and it spooks her. Jack also hears the whispers.
OK, to my theory.
Over the past four years, we witnessed an anonymous cast of characters brought together by a horrific plane crash. We watched as they pulled together, bonded with each other, formed a rudimentary rules and laws, selected a leader, built a community, learned of the castaways deep dark secrets, viewed tragic deaths, watched in awe of some amazing unbelievable healing and supernatural qualities of the island, watched romance bloom between castaways, and watched as love faded for others.
Then we were introduced to the “Others.” And then the other “Others,” (The tail section castaways) and Jacob, who is invisible, and Richard, who apparently doesn’t age, and now the freighter crew.
I have stated that the castaways are merely lab rats exposed to physical and mental tests and experiments. We have all witnessed the emergence of the alpha male and how he changes the dynamics of the group.
We have witnessed magical healing properties to John Locke and how that has changed his outlook and his opinion of his own self worth.
We have witnessed a remarkable cold turkey withdrawal from heroin by Charlie in a matter of days.
We have witnessed love triangles, Kate, Sawyer, Jack, and Ben, Jack, Juliet, and Juliet, Kate, Jack, Kate, Ana Lucia, Sawyer. (Kate’s a slut)
We have witnessed the deaths of group members and how it affected certain castaways.
We have witnessed a very pregnant woman (Claire) who was giving her unborn child up for adoption thrust into motherhood to analyze mother child bonding.
We have witnessed the battle of good verses evil and what lengths each side would go to to achieve their objective.
We have witnessed cold blooded executions and murders to examine the morality of the groups members.
We have witnessed supernatural events, (Smoke monster, stoppage of time, Locke can walk, etc.) and how each castaway processes these events.
And many more such experiments performed on the castaways.
Tonight we witnessed Locke striking a deal with his arch enemy, Ben, to help him maintain control over his group. We all know this is going to go South real fast. Ben always lies remember!
Even last week’s episode, with Daniel and Desmond in the office with the rat maze. You could easily replace the rat with Desmond.
This is why I believe the castaways are lab rats, in stasis, as a virtual reality program is generating each and every scenario possibly of human community dynamics. And why? Perhaps so that this race of aliens can save the human race from extinction? Or perhaps they are simply studying them as we humans study other animals.
I’ll end tonight’s update with this.
Perhaps the freighter crew want to secure control of the island by releasing the gas that Ben used on the original inhabitants on the island. Hence that’s why they packed gas masks. And since Daniel apparently has also traveled in the past and future, perhaps he was aware of how Ben gained control using the gas and deemed it the best chance to relinquish control.
Until next week, Get Lost!
