ABC Lost In Virtual Reality Update – 01/15/2005
‘Cause baby there
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you babe
The Grassy Knoll Institute believes the survivors are in a virtual reality laboratory connected together as a battery of tests and experiments are performed on them. Not by the Dharma initiative, but by aliens. In this update, we look at John Locke, the wheelchair bound man who was miraculously cured and became a master of survival. While out looking for Claire, the blond pregnant girl, he stumbles upon a metal trap door in the side of the mountain. Locke is pondering on how to open it.
Meanwhile, Sayid is trying to read the maps from the French woman and Locke gives him his compass saying he doesn’t need it anymore. Sayid discovers that the compass is off, that it doesn’t point true North. Or, the island doesn’t conform to the Earths magnetic field. Perhaps because its not on Earth.
Noticed another thing. This island is huge. It has mountains, tall mountains, waterfalls, miles and miles of land, and an endless coastline. Yet they are the only people on the island. This island is as big as Hawaii, the big island of Hawaii. In reality, the island would be heavily populated since it is the tropical region conducive to year round warm weather and would at least be a huge tourist trap. Why don’t these “Lost” survivors realize this?
This episode was really a lot about nothing except to foreshadow what was to become next. I guarantee Claire returns without the baby.
Until next week.
