ABC Lost Answers: It’s Time To Let Go Now

Posted by LOTGK on May 25, 2010

Lost Secrets Google Search Results

Of all the 24,700,000 Lost joints in all the towns in all the world, she surfs into mine. Here’s lookin at you Lost.

This is the area where I inserted a meaningful song title to tie in my Lost update to the episode that aired. Well, since there are no more episodes, I was going to skip this section until, as if by fate, as I was listening to some Motown hits this morning, I happened upon this song by Diana Ross and the Supremes. No, no, no, it wasn’t Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, or Someday We’ll Be Together, not even My World Is Empty Without You. This tune hit me square. It is titled,

Reflections by Diana Ross and the Supremes

Through the mirror of my mind
Time after time
I see reflections of you and me

Reflections of
The way life used to be
Reflections of
The love you took from me

Oh, I’m all alone now
No love to shield me
Trapped in a world
That’s a distorted reality

Happiness you took from me
And left me alone
With only memories

Through the mirror of my mind
Through these tears that I’m crying
Reflects a hurt I can’t control
Cause although you’re gone
I keep holding on
To the happy times
Oh, when you were mine

As I peer through the window
Of lost time
Looking over my yesterdays
And all the love I gave all in vain
(All the love) All the love
That I’ve waisted
(All the tears) All the tears
That I’ve tasted
All in vain

Through the hollow of my tears
I see a dream that’s lost
From the hurt
That you have caused

Everywhere I turn
Seems like everything I see
Reflects the love that used to be

In you I put
All my faith and trust
Right before my eyes
My world has turned to dust

After all the nights
I sat alone and wept
Just a handful of promises
Are all that’s left of loving you

Reflections of
The way life used to be
Reflections of
The love you took from me

In you I put
All my faith and trust
Right before my eyes
My world has turned to dust…

It was a hell of a run for the past six years as the Grassy Knoll Institute ranked consistently at the top of Google Search for key words pertaining to ABC Lost. If only one alien, one cryogenic pod, one scientist in a lab coat would have shown up in the church,… Ahh well, so shall it is.

This is the section where I would state my Lost theory, something like, No plane crash, no island, Juliets rack, Jacks a pussy, experiments, tests, aliens, government men, Rod Serling, cue the Lost music.

But anyway, as the Grassy Knoll Institute moves on and past the Lost Experience, we do have some closing remarks and questions. We understand that these questions will never be answered and just merely float around in cyber-space for all eternity but we’re asking them anyway.

Question #1: After the Lost pilot episode aired, Cuse and Lindelof stated that the castaways were not in Purgatory. Not dead. Not in Heaven or Hell.

For six years, we were exposed to multiple time travel. Pushing a silly button every 108 minutes to save the world. Alternate realities. Life. Death. Hauntings. Ghosts. People that talk to ghosts. People that don’t age. A smoke monster. Egyptian, Greek, and Roman markings and mysticism. An eternal life spring. People that are healed upon touching the island. People than are not healed upon touching the island. We saw the island disappear. We saw the island reappear. We saw flashes in the sky. We saw the hatch. Dr. Chang’s tutorial films. We were introduced to the Hanso corporation. The Dharma Institute. Juliet’s great rack. (Which we will never complain about) Space-time continuum theorems even Albert Einstein couldn’t comprehend.

And what do all these things mean? Bumphus? Absolutely nothing. Except to the advertising world that stretched Lost into six seasons. Cuse and Lindelof, for lack of a better word, lied to the viewers of Lost. In the end, the castaways were all dead. And they were in Purgatory. So we have that….

Question #2: If only what happened on the island mattered, why were we subjected to six season of flash backs, flash forwards, and finally side way flashes? For the almighty advertising dollar. It was all filler. Sort of what’s inside hot dogs. Hot dogs taste great, but you don’t want to know what they are made of. (What’s in the hatch? – What’s in the hot dog?)

Question #3: Claire Littleton was pregnant on the island. She gave birth to a healthy boy she named Aaron. If they were all dead, then Aaron was born in Purgatory, and since you have to be dead to get into Purgatory, that means Aaron was already dead when he was born and Claire already dead when giving birth. See the spin here?

However, if what happens on the island only matters, how could Aaron also be born off the island, and live with Kate off the island if he was already born on the island, and in fact, born in Purgatory? These are the kind of answers I was looking for Sunday night.

Question #4: Jack made Hurley the new protector of the island. Made him drink from the river of life or whatever and told Hurley, “Now you are like me!” As in what Jacob told Jack. If they are like Jacob, and Jacob has been around for at least 2000 years, wouldn’t that denote that Hurley would have the same type of life span? Especially with the smoke monster eliminated, and no natural enemies, Hurley should have lived for thousands of years just like Jacob. How did Hurley die? Did he eat himself into oblivion?

If Hurley was like Jacob, and did live for several thousand years, then all those people who were already dead had a very long time to wait in the church. I know, I know, time doesn’t matter where they are, (Thanks Christian for that cherub) but he certainly would have outlasted Jack. Right? Right? Why was everyone waiting for Jack and not Hurley?

Question #5: Is Purgatory by invitation only? Not that anyone wants to be invited to that party, but where was Mr. Eko? Arguably the man with the most faith out of all the castaways. And school teacher Artz. All he wanted to do was protect and help. Where’s his happy ending? And what about Walt? Where’s his happy ending? Where’s his anything ending? Some would say Michael, since he murdered two people, wasn’t permitted to enter the church. If that were true, why was Sawyer there, who murdered a man on and off the island? And Kate, who murdered a man off the island? Niki and Paulo anyone?

Question #6: For years, all we heard was the love Desmond had for Penny. In the finale, he never even knew who Penny was. He was never with Penny o the island. If what happened on the island was the only thing that mattered, why was Desmond and Penny together in the church?

So, that’s six questions for six seasons. As a bonus, there’s always a bonus, perhaps one last Tidbit from tonight’s episode section: Will there be a post Lost spin-off movie or series? Exploring the lives of the purgatory they now live (Die) in. Fleshing out the years of Sawyer and Juliet and her magnificent rack. Jack and Kate? Sayid and Shannon. Hurley, king of the jungle. Charlie and Claire. And when Ben finally has the courage to step through the church doors. Perhaps then we will see a Twilight Zone twist of fate or even aliens experimenting on the castaways in a cryogenic chamber. Perhaps not!

Thank you to everyone who supported my humble Lost blog, visited my site on a regular basis, commented, and put up with my outlandish theory and updates the past six years. You have all made the Lost experience that much more entertaining. Without you, I probably would not have continued the updates. (Some may think that would have been a good thing) And with that,…

It's Time To Let Go Now

See You In Another Life Brother

Lost Update – Series Finale – The Long And Winding Road

Posted by LOTGK on May 24, 2010

lost secrets revealed

ABC Lost Secrets – Virtual Reality – Alternate Reality

Lost Update – Series Finale – 05/23/2010

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I’ve seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to you door

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day
Why leave me standing here
Let me know the way

Many times I’ve been alone
And many times I’ve cried
Any way you’ll never know
The many ways I’ve tried

And still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don’t leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don’t keep me waiting here
Lead me to your door
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah…

I chose the Beatles song The Long And Winding Road as the Lost series finale title for several reasons. In 1969 and 1970, the Beatles imploded, the band split up and their final two albums were in peril of not getting completed. (Some speculate that Yoko Ono was a main conduit in their demise much like MIB was to the Lost candidates) The original code name for the follow up to the White Album was “Get Back.” However, the project fizzled after several tracks were laid down and the Beatles were close to folding.

In the end, the Fab Four pulled it together, (Much like the Lost candidates) and released the Abbey Road album in 1969 and the Let it Be album in 1970. It was released in May of 1970, perhaps the same time the Dharma Institute first landed on the Lost island and set up camp. Let It Be was supposed to be released before Abbey road but as discussed above, it was part of the Get Back project and was shelved for a time. Almost as if the album time traveled to the future.

The lyrics itself of The Long And Winding Road speak of a love story with heartache always leading back to the beginning. And like my Lost theory, it began with the pilot episode and after a long and winding six seasons, we’re finally at the end of our journey.

Just what was the Grassy Knoll Institutes Lost theory….It’s finally time to reveal all…
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 at the season three finale, the Aliens of course.

Wow, what a finale. This is going to be a short and sweet update. I am only going to state a few things here and pretty much like the Lost writers did, let you decide what just happened. Maybe Kimmel live will be able to shed more light (Pun intended) on what really happened on Lost.

First and foremost, I want to thank all those who have followed my blog during the past six seasons. I hope you have enjoyed the past six years as much as I did. From the get go, I announced my theory, virtual reality, and proceeded to prove the theory week in and week out. In the same breath, I also stated that I had a one in a million chance of being correct. At least I was correct on that.😀

When I started writing this, I was going to point out what Christian said to his son, “This is a place you all made together so you could find one another.” I think I could make the argument that they all had the same shared experience, all experiencing the same scenario at the same time, and perhaps that would explain my virtual reality theory. However, I don’t think so. The way the show ended, all in the church, all reunited and happy, with the good Shepherd (Christian) leading them into the light, it was all about redemption and love.

Before I turn this over to the commenters just waiting to say, YOU’RE WRONG DUDE, I TOLD YOU SO. ETC. I’ll leave you all with a line from my favorite band, the Beatles, that sums up the entire Lost series in one simple line.

And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love, you make…

Lost Update: Mother

Posted by LOTGK on May 11, 2010

lost secrets revealed

Lost Update – Season Six – 05/11/2010

Mother, do you think they’ll drop the bomb?
Mother, do you think they’ll like this song?
Mother, do you think they’ll try to break my balls?
Ooh ah, Mother, should I build the wall?

Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Ooh ah, Is it just a waste of time.

Hush now baby, baby, don’t you cry.
Mama’s gonna make all of your nightmares come true,
Mama’s gonna put all of her fears into you,
Mama’s gonna keep you right here, under her wing.
She won’t let you fly, but she might let you sing,
Mama’s gonna keep baby cozy and warm.
Oooh babe, Oooh babe, Oooh babe,
Of course Mama’s gonna help build the wall.

Mother, do you think she’s good enough, for me?
Mother, do you think she’s dangerous, to me?
Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
Ooh ah, Mother, will she break my heart?

Hush now baby, baby, don’t you cry.
Mama’s going to check out all your girlfriends for you,
Mama won’t let anyone dirty get through,
Mama’s gonna wait up until you get in.
Mama will always find out where you’ve been,
Mama’s gonna keep baby healthy and clean.
Oooh babe, Oooh babe, Oooh babe,
You’ll always be baby to me.

Mother, did it need to be so high?

Pink Floyd’s song Mother, is tonight’s Lost Update Title. How very odd that just today in my office I was listening to this very song and to my amazement, tonight’s episode fits this song and my Lost theory just like another brick in the wall.

Just what is the Grassy Knoll Institutes Lost theory….I’ve been waiting six years 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.

As promised, ABC Lost delivered tonight’s episode with no regular cast members on film. Only Jacob and the Man In Black were familiar characters. We were all witness to not only the birth of Jacob and MIB, but to the island mystique and to the successor process of the island protector.

A story has to begin somewhere, even Lost. It didn’t start with a horrific plane crash on a deserted island. It started almost 2000 years ago. With a very pregnant Claudia washing up onshore. She struggles to a fresh water stream where “Conch Cone” woman, (Did you see the conch shells in here hair) helps Claudia give birth to twin boys, Jacob and MIB. Claudia only had one name picked out, Jacob. Jacob wrapped in white cloth, and MIB wrapped in black. Conch woman kills Claudia and assumes the role of mother and protector to Jacob and MIB. (Perhaps significant, only two children born on the island, until Aaron.)

Tonight’s episode continues with the mythology of the island, it’s secret powers, who the “Others” are, who Jacob and MIB are, how the Smoke Monster came to be, Who Adam and Eve are, what the wheel at the bottom of the well is for, the significance of the wine bottle and the cork, dead people coming to people in wide awake dreams, and everything that happened to our current castaways some 2000 years later. And most importantly, how it always ends. As MIB stated in the season five finale, “They come, fight, they destroy, they corrupt. It always ends the same.”

The cycle repeats itself. As if an experiment is being conducted over and over and over again. Hoping for a different outcome, a new set of results. A redeeming quality that may spare the lives of the human race. Using countless thousands of test subjects, from all walks of life, put into bizarre circumstances, using a disaster such as a plane crash as a catalyst to bring humanity together, to work as one, toward a common goal. And when the experiment fails, the test subjects turn on one another, they are all replaced, with a fresh set to start once again. Or as Jacob replied to MIB, “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that, it’s just progress.”

Wait a dog gone minute mister Grassy Knoll Institute. Do you mean to tell me that the experiment has been going on for 2000 years? How in the world can that be possible?

Good question. To answer, we need to look at the Holy Bible, in particular to Genesis, to the creation of the universe, the Earth, and humankind. The bible states that God created everything in six days, and on the seventh day, he rested. But we as educated people, realize that the universe is billions of years old, and it took a lot longer than six days for God to create it. Or did it?

The first question you need to ask is, how long exactly is one day to God? Since God always was and always will be, time is irrelevant. Perhaps to God, a day is a billion years. And so it took 6 billion years to create the universe in humankind perspective.

To an alien, perhaps 2000 years is a mere few years time. Just by observing our own solar system and noticing that each planet has it’s own length of time for day, some far longer than that on Earth, and some far shorter, months measured in years is in the realm of reality.

To sum up, for 2000 years, countless ships have run aground stranding the survivors on the Lost island. They became test subjects, unwilling participants in an elaborate experiment testing human nature and whether we, (Humanity) are worthy of survival. Candidates were selected and steered toward the path of righteousness. Roadblocks were put in their paths. However, as MIB stated, it always ended the same. Until perhaps this bunch of candidates on the Lost island at present. Does Desmond, Hurley, and Jack have it in them to overcome the roadblocks, or will Lost end with a new set of test subjects, crashing on the island resetting the experiment once again? We’ll find out in a few weeks.

Tidbits From Tonight’s Episode:

* Jacob and MIB were the first known candidates.
* Jacon and MIB are twins.
* You learn from your parents. Jacob and MIB learned that people were inherently bad, and not to be trusted.
* When Jacob was offered the cup of wine from the bottle and told to drink it, it reminded me of Jesus and the last supper.
* Claudia asked how did you get here. Answered, by accident, just like everyone else.
* MIB’s mother comes to him in a dream, jacob cannot see her, tells MIB everything.
* Smoke monster is not MIB. Just took on his appearance.
* If the light goes out in the stream, it goes out everywhere.
* How does putting a wooden wheel in the light guarantee that you can go home.
* Speaking of home, MIB has been wanting to do that for a long time.
* Speaking of MIB staring out at the ocean, John Locke had the same habit. Just saying.
* I miss Juliet and her amazing rack.
* The light in the stream is the life, death, rebirth, and the source of all the power of the island.
* Adam and Eve is MIB and Conch Cone woman.

Sorry to get all medieval on religion and the bible on you there, but an explanation on the perception was necessary to support and explain tonight’s episode. Only two more episodes left Lost fans. What do you think?

How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat.,,

Lost Update – A Matter Of Trust

Posted by LOTGK on May 4, 2010

lost secrets revealed

Lost Update – Season Six – 05/04/2010

This time you’ve got nothing to lose
You can take it, you can leave it
Whatever you choose
I won’t hold back anything
And I’ll walk away a fool or a king
Some love is just a lie of the mind
It’s make-believe until its only a matter of time
And some might have learned to adjust
But then it never was a matter of trust

I’m sure you’re aware love
We’ve both had our share of
Believing too long
When the whole situation was wrong

Some love is just a lie of the soul
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control
After you’ve heard lie upon lie
There can hardly be a question of why
Some love is just a lie of the heart
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
But that can’t happen to us
Because it’s always been a matter of trust

As Lost steam rolls to its finale May 23rd, the show reveals that it has always been about a matter of trust and faith. Just as Billy Joel’s lyrics above say, It’s always been a matter of trust. And tonight, the castaways must trust each other or die. And this my Lost friends, is exactly what I’ve been talking about for years. Tonight’s episode supports my Lost theory. Trust me.

Just what is the Grassy Knoll Institutes Lost theory…. I’ve been waiting six years 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.

Before we get into the crux of tonight’s update, let’s all take a moment of silence for the loss of Sayid, Lapedius, Sun and Jin. They didn’t make it out of the sub. Sayid does a 180 and saves the castaways. Sun being pinned and Jin refusing to leave her. And when Lapedius saw the leak on the submarine door, it reminded me of the comedy movie, Airport, when the captain said, “I picked a hell of a day to quit drinking!” (There’s your comedy relief to lighten the mood. Dry your eyes and lets press on through this update)

Fret not Lost fans. They didn’t die. None of them died. Not really. Remember, its virtual reality, and each and every person is interconnected which explains the familiarity amongst them. Tonight was more than just about death, sorrow, sadness, it was also about trust. And convergence. Let’s start with Jack.

Jack in the side flash, interacts with John Locke, saves his life, and wants to continue with another procedure to help him walk again. Locke while recovering, is in twilight sleep and Jack overhears him muttering, “Have to push the button, I wish you would have believed me!” All these things were happening on the island. Remember the hatch and pushing the button and when Locke was disappointed in Jack for not having faith in him and the island.

To top it off, Jack tells Locke, what ever happened, happened. And just as Locke was wheeling himself away, Jack says, “I wish you believed in me!” All happened on and off the island. Jack had similar interactions with other castaways in previous side ways flashes. In all of them, he and the castaways became aware of their double life. Coincidence that everyone was on the same plane, flight 815. Coincidence that they all interact in the side ways flash! I think not!

As I stated before, the castaways are living in a virtual reality laboratory unbeknownst to them. Being experimented on. Being tested. Forced without knowledge to act out many scenario’s. Some in the past, present, and future. Some on the island, some on the mainland. The subconscious mind is creating a deJa Vu in an attempt to cope with the over lapping scenario’s. Hence, the castaways are beginning to wake up, become aware, and like Desmond, attempting to master their domain.

Part Two: A brutal experiment involving Jin and Sun.
Love is a strong emotion. Jin and sun were put into a no win situation. Sun was pinned and the sub was taking on water. Jin was powerless to free her. Sun tells Jin to leave him, to save himself. Jin professes his love to Sun and vows that he will not leave her ever again. They kiss, cry, and embrace their destiny together, never to be apart again.

Jin was given the permission to leave from sun. She begged him to save himself.. His very life was hanging in the balance. Does he stay with Sun and drown or save himself. How many people could make that kind of choice? Perhaps that is why Jacob told MIB that he was going to continue the experiments until they got it right. Perhaps Jin and Sun played this scenario out hundreds of times. Perhaps they both made it safely out. Perhaps Jin left Sun. What is the right answer? We’ll know May 23rd.

Tidbits From Tonight’s Episode:

* Bernard in the sideways flash is pretty much the same as he is on the island.
* Sawyer returns to the cages.
* Why didn’t Smoky take the lead in the charge on the heavily guarded submarine. Turn into Smoky and kill them all. Why did he hold back?
* Bernard tells Jack its weird that they were both on flight 815 along with John Locke.
* The castaways once again leave Claire behind when they board the sub. She looked pissed.
* Sayid still had an ounce of good left in him. Tells Jack about the Desmond situation and takes the bomb and saves everyone.
* Widmore tells Sawyer who is locked in the cage, “Trust me, it’s for your own good.” There’s that word “Trust” again!
* Kate is shot. Is it lethal? I doubt it.
* Jack says to Locke, You’re a candidate, but Locke declines. As if he knew in the alternate reality that he would not be worthy.
* Locke is responsible for his fathers vegetative condition. Just the opposite in the flash back, when Lockes father was the reason for him being confined to the wheelchair.
* When Jack frees the castaways from the cages, he says, He’s with him, meaning the Smoke Monster.
* Finally, tonight’s lyrics, read them again. What’s your take on them?

Can you believe it. May 23rd is the Lost series finale. I hope to see everyone here in the next few short weeks celebrating what a fantastic program Lost has turned out to be. And you still have time, tell us all your Lost theory. There is still time. Trust me!

Lost Update: Wondrous Boat Ride

Posted by LOTGK on April 20, 2010

lost secrets revealed

Lost Update – Season Six – 04/20/2010

Round the world and home again
That’s the sailor’s way
Faster faster, faster faster

There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing

Is it raining, is it snowing
Is a hurricane a-blowing

Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of Hell a-glowing
Is the grisly reaper mowing

Yes, the danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing

The song above is titled, Wondrous Boat Ride and can be heard in the episode preview for tonight’s program. The song is from the movie, Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. And this is significant folks. One particular line in the song, (There’s no earthly way of knowing Which direction we are going) touches on exactly what is happening to the island castaways and sums up my Lost theory.

Just what is the Grassy Knoll Institutes Lost theory….I’ve been waiting six years 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.

So it finally comes down to this. Willy Wonka! I was waiting for the Oompa Loompa’s to throw down a song about why its bad to leave the island. Alas, no Oompa’s break dancing but tonight’s episode still had a Wonka feel to it.

Case in point, the lyrics focus on the boat ride the guests took with Wonka. Wonka started chanting strange lines, (Read the lyrics at the top of the post again) and a key line was “There’s no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going.” As in, is Sawyer and the renegade gang going in the right direction? Should they have left the Smoky group? Should they have allowed Claire on board? Should Sawyer have let Jack jump off the boat? All good questions, all with answers to follow.

But enough with Willy and his chocolate factory for now. We need to focus on Jack, Sawyer, and Sayid. Some very significant things happened to them tonight. Jack was broken, Sawyer was a leader, and Sayid reverted back to the good side.

Waaaaayyyyy back in season one, Jack was the hero, the leader, the man with the plan, the man everyone listened to. A man that wanted nothing more than to get the Hell off the island. Tonight, Jack was a broken man, a man taking orders from Hurley, and from Sawyer. Jack became a follower. And his point of view was a complete 180. He believed he was supposed to stay on the island. Notice how he didn’t argue with Sawyer on the boat, and just jumped off the boat into the water?

Some of you are asking So what? Let me explain. As my theory states, the castaways are being experimented on. Jack was the Alpha male in the beginning. After being exposed to a variety of stimuli, Jack became docile, let me say, domesticated. That was Jack’s test. What would it take to break him? He is now pliable, open to suggestion. Ready to accept his fate. Whatever it may be.

Next is Sawyer. If you remember, he was a loner, out for himself. Tonight, he was the man with the plan and instead of staking out on his own, he brought the group along to safety. He tells Jack on the boat, you’re either with us, or against us. Us being the key word. He was part of the group. Sawyer also did a complete 180 in personality. He was given the means to achieve and do the right thing, and he took it.

Sayid is last. Sayid was the good guy with the Iraqi past. He was always helping, fixing, protecting. Tonight, he is soul less. He made a pact with the devil, sold his soul, for a promise to be with Nadia, the love of his life. A promise that will never be fulfilled. Remember, dead is dead. And Nadia is dead. However, Sayid pulled a 360 tonight. First he was good, then bad, than good again as he lied to Smoky and I’m betting he did not kill Desmond.

All three men have been manipulated to the extreme. All three have felt love, hatred, heartache, and lost the love of their life. All three men traveled the psychological spectrum in approximately 115 days of living on the island. These three men, as all the other castaways, are being tested, manipulated, molded into different people. For what purpose is yet an unknown. To save the world? Perhaps! Or perhaps a more sinister ending. Like the one I have foreseen. (I sound like the Emperor on Star Ward now) I have foreseen it. It is your destiny.)

One last point and then we’ll get to the tidbits. The castaways are once again reunited. Jack states that we’re all different now. Sort of like a reset to a video game. Changing the skill level, the players, the parameters. Perhaps this is the final level of the game and its time to use what you have learned to win. And sometimes, the only way to win the game, is not to play.

Tidbits From Tonight’s Show:

* Smoky admits he took the form of Christian Shepard. Can you believe him? Yea, I sort of do.
* In the side flash, Sun recognized Locke as both were being wheeled in to emergency.
* Claire tells Jack that he already decided to go with Smoky the moment he allowed him to talk. Like it or not, you’re with him now.
* Sounds like Satan doesn’t it? There’s your shout out to all the religion theory folks.
* After the bomb goes off, Smoky says, well, here we go. He is ready for battle as Zoe demands Desmond be released.
* Desmond is at it again in the side flash. This time helping Claire and Ilana. And perhaps Jack as well. Could be the new Jacob huh?
* I thought Claire was going to shoot Kate at the boat. I really did. However, she will get hers later. They all will. Oops!
* In the side flash, Jin tells Sun its OK, we’re all going to be fine now.
* Jin and Sun reunited. Touching moment. But it won’t last long.
* Zoe captures the Sawyer gang, tells him the deal is off, and they are prisoners.
* Jack swims to the island. Meets Smoky. Nice day for a swim. Bomb explodes. Jack is knocked down. Smoky carries him to safety. Tells Jack, don’t worry, you’re with me now.
* Jack ready to operate on Locke in the side flash. So Desmond wasn’t crazy after all. Jack will heal Locke.

May 23rd is just over a month away for the series finale. What a hell of a boat ride its been. And after six years of episodes and speculation, Willy Wonka stays true to his words when he sings,
There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing

Until next week. Get Lost.
