Lost Update – Season V – 03/04/2009
Why can’t you just get it through your head,
It’s over, it’s over now.
Yes, you heard me clearly now I said,
It’s over, it’s over now.
I’m not really over you,
You might say that
I can’t take it, I can’t take it,
Lord, I swear I just can’t take it no more.
(Go away) go away,
(Far away) so far away.
It’s too late to turn back now,
And it don’t matter anyhow.
Is it just me, or did Sawyer, AKA Jim Lafluer, look like Kid Rock when he was back in time in 1974? Seriously, I was expecting Pamela Anderson to walk through one of those cabin doors.
Tonight’s episode was all about time with a few tidbits of the main story thrown in to entertain. The castaways kept jumping from time to time until it was finally over. The headaches were gone, the flashing had stopped, the nose bleeds dried up, and time travel was over. Whatever happened happened. (Daniel Faraday) The castaways are trapped in 1974, (Oh the horror, the height of monster bell bottom blue jeans) and separated from Jack, Hurley, Kate, Sayid, Ben, Locke and the rest of the castaways.
However, Sawyer, or Lafluer, moved on from Kate and is getting his groove on with Juliet. At one point tonight, I thought I was watching a classic Leave It To Beaver episode. (Ward, You were pretty hard on the Beaver last night!) Sawyer comes home from a hard day at work. Stops by the garden outside his cottage and picks a flower. Walks in and sees dinner on the table and his main squeeze Juliet, in the kitchen cooking dinner. They embrace, kiss, and exchange “I love you’s” to each other.
It’s to bad that Sawyer and Juliet have fallen smack dab in the middle of my Lost theory.
Just what is the Grassy Knoll Institutes Lost theory….I’ve been waiting since 1974 to tell you…
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 running these experiments? As Juliet stated, the Aliens of course.
Let’s take a closer look at tonight’s episode. We see Sawyer and Juliet working together like a well oiled machine. She has his back, kills for him, watches over him, listens to him, and allows him to take command. Sawyer slowly integrates into the Dharma Initiative, he even wears the jump suit. Sawyer and Juliet are living the simple life on the Lost island.
Until the end of tonight’s show when Jack, Hurley, and Kate show up. Kate looks longingly at Sawyer, and Sawyer looks at Kate. We all thought the same thing at the same time. (Love triangle) Hey, it’s the 70’s, a little Ménage à Trois could spice up Lost.
Are you following along here? OK, in a nutshell, Boy meets girl, rolls in the sand, girl meets another boy, rolls in sand with him, boy meets another girl, girl already rolled in sand with the other boy, but girl rolls in the sand with him anyway, boy and girl fall in love, set up house, boy picks flowers, girl cooks dinner, boy and girl roll in the sand, boy and girl believe life is grand. Boy gets phone call after rolling in sand with girl. Boy meets up with girl three years later. Both boy and girl think about the roll in the sand they had previously. And it starts all over again.
Sawyer and Juliet are unknowing subjects in a virtual reality experiment to study the dynamics of human love and relationships. Sawyer and Juliet are put in many different situations and time frames. They are then observed to see how they both adapt and develop. Notice how Sawyer and Juliet are ruthless killers in one scenario, and Ward and June Cleaver in another. Each scenario, they had each other’s back, were together, bonded. (And not in the armored car security guard bonded type)
You see folks, my virtual reality theory is real, viable, feasible. The castaways are not on an island, but in a lab, being studied by mysterious men supposedly government type men but in reality, are aliens.
Tidbits From Tonight’s Episode:
* Horace Goodspeed. Town drunk, village idiot, and large and in charge.
* Thanks anyway Plato.
* The statue returns. You remember, the four toed statue that was in total disrepair, during one of the flashes, the statue was erect. (Must of got a glimpse of Juliet’s cleavage)
* Amy was pregnant, Amy gave birth to a baby boy. Horace is the daddy.
* What the hell is the truce?
* Richard Alpert shows up, defeats the sonic fence defenses, and looks exactly how he did in the future, or the past, or whatever.
* Daniel sees a very young Charlotte in the camp. She waves to him.
* Amy was quite upset when Horace told her Richard wanted Paul’s body. What is Richard, some sort of evil gardener that plants dead bodies and watches them grow again?
With Lost not airing a new episode next week, expect to see a special Lost Update shining a light on time travel and what it means to Lost.
About tonight’s lyrics, by Boz Scaggs, pegs the episode perfectly, from beginning to the final scene of Kate and Sawyer starring into each others eyes.
Until next week, Get Lost!
