LOST: Across the Sea

"You can't do that because it is against the rules. One day you will make your own rules".

SPOILER ALERT!

 If you do not want to knom then stop reading.

Here's goes with my random thoughts and musings on last night's episode.

Well Jacob has certainly done that, hasn't he? This was a fantastic episode. Even though many of my questions were answered, the episode still left me with some new questions, but you know what/ We are not going to get all of the answers we seek, so we have to accept that. Some things may just not be answered, like what is the light source? I interpreted it to be like the tree of Wisdom, and the island a sort of Garden of Eden. The Donkey Wheel does drop you in the Middle East where all of the Bible stories originate. (The exact place name is escaping me at the moment.) If I remember correctly, Island Mom said the Light is the source of good, evil, life, death, and answers to any questions. It must be protected or man will abuse it.


Which brings us to Island Mom. I do wonder where she comes from, but then again, where does the Light come from. I can deal with never learning her exact origins, because the story of Jacob and the Man in Black (MIB) explained a lot. The skeletons, how Smokey came to be, and Jacob's background. Poor MIB, never gets a name. My husband thinks his name will be a bomb dropped in the finale. Possible.


Back to crazy Island Mom. OMG! Bad enough she killed the twins birth mom, but then what she did to MIB was so sad. MIB agreed with her opinion of men, being evil, greedy, and corrupt, but he didn't care. All he wanted was off the island, any way he could. He questioned his existence, and didn't take things for granted, like Jacob did. MIB questions everything and Jacob just goes with the flow, like a sheep following the herd. I guess curiosity killed the cat. Oh and the wine that Island Mom made Jacob drink. Does that make him or contribute to his eternity? See, crazy Mom. Normal Moms don't damn their children to eternal life, regardless of what they need to protect.

Now that I think about it, you could consider this story to have religious overtones, with Island Mom being God, and Jacob and MIB being angels. There is one who never questions their god (Jacob) and the troublemaker (MIB aka Lucifer the fallen angel). Or am I making too much from it? Possible. But how about the fact that Jacob turned his brother's soul, if you want to call it that, into Smokey. Talk about guilt. And that is how Jacob's game came to be. He was responsible for unleashing Smokey, so he is now responsible for controlling it.

My girlfriend at lunch said people all over the web were angry with last night's episode, but I wasn't. What are your thoughts? Are you angry? Are you satisfied with the answers you are getting? I agree some are tied up prettily with a bow, but what did you expect?  And btw, my hubby is apparently not pleased and can't wait for it to be over.

You should put together a mini-book about the Lost Series and then have it available to download to those of us that have yet to watch one episode!!

I liked this episode but it wasn't as good as last weeks. My post will be up tomorrow.

I actually really enjoyed this episode- although I can't wait for the show to finally end. I am satisfied with it ending any way it wants now that my most pressing question (who were Adam and Eve?) has been answered. I happened to miss the Crazy Mom dying - that's what happens when you shut your eyes for 2 seconds. I liked how this episode was totally focused on them - except for the time they had to remind us about the skeltons (like we didn't remember). Otherwise I really enjoyed it.

I am not over last week's episode! LOL. This week's did answer some questions, but also raised more.

I enjoyed the episode. My boyfriend kept asking questions during it, which is such a no-no. You have to watch the whole episode, then analyze, then question. My boyfriend probably can't wait for it to end either, then I won't get so crazy watching tv! =)

I wanst angry with the episode, but I dont see how on Earth they are going to answer everything and wrap it all up. Theres just two episodes left till the finale.
I found it extremely disturbing that Jacob threw his brother into the light that way! Yes, talk about guilt!
