This episode is gonna be awesome because 1.) Its the first ever Richard Alpert episode! and 2.) It’s six minutes longer then usual! Judging by this promo, it looks like this episode will give a couple answers. I have a feeling that this could be the episode where we start to learn about the flash-sideways and how it relates to the island storyline.
We should learn about Ricard’s backstory, maybe we will even get to see him arrive on the black rock! If Ricard Alpert has a flash-sideways storyline my head might explode.
According to Wiki Ab Aeterno is a Latin phrase that translates to “Literally, “from the everlasting” or “from eternity”. Thus, “from time immemorial”, “since the beginning of time” or “from an infinitely remote time in the past”. In theology, often indicates something, such as the universe, that was created outside of time.” So, I guess we should find out some pretty big details about the show’s mythology. This should be good.
