LOST Thoughts: "Final Chapter" and "LAX"
I am so glad this show is back! Except for the commercials...my goodness ABC! I know you have to pay the bills but come on. Oh don't you worry, I'll be Tivoing this in the future.
So here are my random thoughts and observations from last night:
The ultimate story line is good versus evil, with Jacob being good. Whether he and the smoke monster (Evil) are fallen angels, God and the Devil, or just plain old good versus evil thing, Evil needed the body of someone who died off the island, in order to leave the island, a la John Locke. Convoluted, I know, but that's the only way it works out for me. That makes Sayid the new Jacob. (The Last Supper photo is starting to make sense now)
Ben is pooping his pants and freaking out. He has just realized he has been had by Evil, and I think will try to atone for his actions.
I think if you are able to leave the island, you should, because that's it. There is no return to civilization and then come back to rescue your friends. Our Losties are all stuck there now. The island travels through different dimensions or realities. I attribute these thoughts to my good friend Dr. Who. His theory of time not being linear, but happening all at once, and the theory of other dimensions or realities makes these scenarios plausible.
Yes, it worked, according to poor Juliet. (Who I did not need to see die again. Poor Sawyer!) Their original selves, because remember when they were time traveling they almost ran into them, never crashed on the island and were able to land in LAX. That's why they showed the island submerged under water, like Atlantis. No, I can't even begin to think on that theory. In another reality the plane never crashed.
So, what's up with the island? It's meant to be a sort of prison for Evil, with Jacob guarding him and having occasional assistants, like the survivors of the crash or the Temple people. (What? More mysterious people?) People who stumbled upon the island, either learn how to manipulate it, like Dharma, or get stuck there, like our returning Losties.
Now I could be completely off base, but that's how I make it make sense to me. I'm sure next week it will be something completely different, but it sure is a hell of ride, isn't it? One more thing, what's up with the Egyptian angle? I am dying to know what that is all about.
