Ben Linus Returns

Access Hollywood has released about a minute of the extra Lost footage that will be on the season 6 DVD and bluray release. It seems to answer the question of who was responsible for the Dharma food supply drops. Ben says he’s going to, “tie up a few loose ends.”

Lost Season Five Review: Important Episodes

Episode: (501) Because You Left

Why it’s important: We find out that the islander losties are traveling through time while off island, Ben is trying to get the Oceanic six to return.  The first scene with Daniel in Dharma times, is a flash forward of when the castaways travel back in time in the future, how confusing is that?

Unanswered questions: Why don’t the rules of time travel apply to Desmond? Is it because of the massive amounts of radiation he was exposed to after the hatch imploded?

Episode: (502) The Lie

Why it’s important: The island losties meet the young Charles Widmore, Ben continues to gather the Oceanic six, and Frogurt dies an ironic and firy death.

Unanswered questions: Who are Gabriel, Jeffrey, and Jill the butcher? Who do they work for and what is their relation to Ben? What is in the bag that Ben takes from the vent in the hotel?

Episode: (504) The Little Prince

Why it’s important: Jack and Kate find out who was trying to take Aaron away, while the islanders revisit Aaron’s birth and Jin finds a younger Danielle Rousseau.

Unanswered questions: Who were the people in the outrigger that attacked the islanders?

Episode: (507) The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham

Why it’s important: Locke tries to convince the Oceanic Six to return and what I am now pretty sure was his death scene.

Unanswered questions: What is the coming war that Widmore refers to? What are Widmore and Ben’s differences in their wants in regards to the island?

Episode: (512) Dead is Dead

Why it’s important: Ben is judged by the monster and we see the beginning of Ben and Widmore’s relationship in flashbacks.

Unanswered questions: Why did the monster tell Ben to follow Locke and how did Locke know where the monster was? I thought Ben used to be able to “summon” the monster in his secret room. It looks like the man-in-black now controls smokey.

Episode: (516) The Incident

Why it’s important: Jack puts in to action his plan to detonate the hydrogen bomb while someone we think is Locke recruits Ben to kill Jacob.

Unanswered questions: What will the bomb detonation mean for the show? Will the passengers of flight 815 land safely in LA? Will it cause an alternate reality like I have speculated? What does Jacob mean when he says: “They’re coming”? How is Locke appear to be alive and dead and in two places at once?

Lost Season Four Review: Important Episodes

Episode: (401) The Beginning of the End

Why it’s important: The fourth season is set up, and we are introduced to the idea of the Oceanic Six.

Unanswered questions: How can Hurley and Lenny see Charlie at Santa Rosa? Who’s eye does Hurley see in Jacob’s Cabin with Christian?

Episode: (402) Confirmed Dead

Why it’s important: We meet Charlotte, Miles, and Frank for the first time and get a glimpse of their past through flashbacks.

Unanswered questions: How can Miles talk to dead people? Why were the Dharma polar bear remains in Tunisia? Why was Frank replaced as the pilot of Oceanic 815?

Episode: (403) The Economist

Why it’s important: We learn that Sayid works for Ben off the island, and Daniel finds out that the island does something weird to time.

Unanswered questions: Why do Naomi and Elsa have similar bracelets? Who is the Economist?

Episode: (409) The Shape of  Things to Come

Why it’s important: Ben timetravels and when the Barracks are attacked by the freighters, Alex is one of the casualties.

Unanswered questions: Did Claire become an island ghost like Christian after the house she was in blew up? What are the rules that Ben and Widmore discuss at the end of this episode and who put them in place?

Episode: (411) Cabin Fever

Why it’s important: We learn about important times in Locke’s past, and we find out that Locke has to move the island.

Unanswered questions: To whom did the objects that Ricard Alpert showed the young John Locke belong?

Episode: (412/413) There’s No Place Like Home

Why it’s important: We see the arrival of the Oceanic Six, and the freighter blow up, the island move, and we find out who was in the coffin.

Unanswered questions: Who built the frozen donkey wheel? Why did Ben say that whoever turned it could not return to the island?

Lost Season Three Review: Important Episodes

Episode: (301) A Tale of Two Cities

Why it’s important: In the premiere of season three we learn a lot about the others when Jack, Kate, and Sawyer find themselves being held by them in cages.

Unanswered questions: What is in the envelope that Juliet was going to show Amelia in the deleted scene?

Episode: (305) The Cost of Living

Why it’s important: Eko dies (spoiler!), we see Michail on one of the Pearl station tv’s, and Jack, Kate, and Sawyer are stuck in cages…still.

Unanswered questions: Can the monster take the shape of people, and if so, who?

Episode: (308) Flashes Before Your Eyes

Why it’s important: We learn that Desmond is special, and this episode is kind of like a toned down version of the Constant.

Unanswered questions: Why does Ms. Hawking tell Desmond that everyone will die if he doesn’t do certain things. Does the course-correction thing apply to the time travel in season 5? If it does apply to everything that the losties did in the past in season 5, then that would mean that detonating the bomb would do nothing to change the past.

Episode: (309) Stranger in a Strange Land

Why it’s important: We learn about Jack’s tatoo! This is probably tied for the worst episode of lost with the Nikki/Paulo episode later this season.

Unanswered questions: Why are Cindy and the kids with the others and what are the planning on watching? What is Isabel’s job?

Episode: (320) The Man Behind the Curtain

Why it’s important: This is one of the best episodes of Lost. It’s the first Ben flashback. We see Jacob in his cabin and we see Ben kill most of the Dharma Initiative, and then nearly kill Locke.

Unanswered questions: Why does Jacob say “Help me”? The ash around his cabin makes me think a curse was put on him to keep him contained in the cabin. Perhaps the man-in-black made this happen?

Episode: (322) Through the Looking Glass

Why it’s important: The mind-blowing introduction of flash forward, the death of a fan favorite, the losties are getting rescued!?!?, but Jack says they “have to go baaaaaaack!”

Unanswered questions: How does “taller-ghost-Walt” appear to Locke? What is the temple?

Sign This!

Some genius named Jon Stueve created a petition online, sometime last year. It’s for a Lost themed Disney attraction. Think of all the possibilities! There could be a Dharma van ride where you get to ride around in the barracks, run away from the smoke monster and polar bears, maybe even travel through time! There are currently 2164 signatures. And u can be number 2165! Probably not because someone else probably already signed by now, but what I am trying to say is YOU MUST SIGN IT!

Lost In Another Dimension

Back in season 3 I had a theory. I think that Lost is gonna be getting into parallel dimensions. Remember when the Losties found the Doctor from the freighter wash up on the beach dead? And remember when Doctor Ray seemed to be alive back at the freighter at the same time?

O.K. Remember this video from Comic Con in the season 3 hiatus?:

Now think about the season 5 finale. Remember how at the end Locke was like this?:


And he was also here at the same time:

I think that maybe the John Locke in this scene is from an other dimension. Like the bunny that appeared in the orchid with the same number as the bunny that was already there.
I’m gonna take this one step further and predict something even crazier. You know how we are told that Widmore dug up graves to create a fake crash site, what if that’s not the case? People have lied before on this show. Lapidus thinks that the wreckage is fake because the pilot doesn’t have his ring on:
Its likely that the ring fell off sometime during the plane crash or something. What if it was the same man? Maybe, like the doctor and John Locke, the survivors of the plane could be dead and alive at the same time. Maybe the passengers of the fake plane crash site are actually the survivors of 815 from an other dimension or from another time. Maybe at the end of the show we will find out that the final fate of the passengers of 815 is for their bodies to rot forever in the bottom of the Sudan trench. I’m not so sure about this idea though, that would be a sad ending.

But I do feel that the final season will deal with alternate realities. Darlton have said that the sixth season will deal with a new timeline structure. And, I mean where else could it go? Time travel, flashbacks, and flashforwards are taken and there is supposed to be a new type of storyline this year. I know J. J. Abrams doesn’t have a lot of say in what goes on in Lost anymore, but his movie, Star Trek and another show he created, Fringe, both had parallel universes, so why not lost? Maybe the book that young Ben gives to Sayid in He’s Our You, “A Separate Reality”, was a little hint to the path Lost is traveling.
These videos from comic con also point towards a parallel universe:

What? Hurley went on a trip to Australia and made it back safely?

They don’t have a perfect safety record…unless this is Oceanic Airlines from another dimension.

But, we know this is not what happened, we saw Kate kill the man she thought was her step-father (We find out later that he was actually her real father) back in season 2 in “What Kate Did”. I don’t know about you but these videos seem to make it really obvious that we are going to be dealing with alternate realities in season 5.

Maybe the bomb caused a parallel universe in which the plane lands safely. The title of the premiere is LAX after all. And, maybe some of the survivors remember what happened on the island and some don’t. Or maybe they are in separate realities.

I like to theorize about Lost but I don’t necessarily want my theories to be right, because I feel that part of what makes Lost so amazing is the unpredictable nature of it. I just cannot wait until February 2nd!

Lost Season 5 Dharma Intiative Special Edition

It finally came today! My Lost Dharma Initiative Season 5 Blu-ray set! The Dharma pamphlets are kind of cool but what was really cool was the secret letter that came with the set. The letter details the agreements between the Hostiles and the Dharma Initiative. Richard Alpert wrote a couple of interesting comments on the truce, but I don’t want to share them online, because they are confidential. I completed my first five classes on Lost University on Blu-ray live. Each subject has one or two classes, a homework assignment, and a final exam. Online at lostuniversity.org you can look at class notes and homework assignments for your project. The Dharma Initiative set is a lot of fun for a major Lost nerd like me and I feel that the extra money spent for it over the basic set is well worth it.

My First Lost Post


The main reason I started this blog was so I could write posts about Lost. Not too long ago ABC announced that Lost is returning on February 2nd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It seems like a very long time from now. There are still thinks gong on in the Lost universe though.

For about four months Lost inspired posters have been released on damoncarltonandapolarbear.com. I have tried to buy the last six posters and failed every time because they sell out in a matter of seconds. There is one more poster left to be released but its not going to be released the same way as the others. I have no clue how its going to be released or what it is will be, all I know is that I want it.

ABC has released the first five parts of a documentary about the Dharma Initiative at this site. The last part is only available on the season 5 DVD or Blu-ray. The documentary covers things like information about Dharma recruitment and there is an interview with Olivia Goodspeed, the wife of Horace.

You can also enroll at Lost University. If you buy the Lost Season 5 Blu-ray set you will be able to go online and take classes designed to teach you about important Lost things like the study of time travel, foriegn languages. The classes are taught by real people from the field and Lost cast members will teach a course in Jungle survival. For those of you that don’t want to buy the blu-rays, at the Lost University site you will be able to watch a couple of videos that recap important Lost themes in the Tutoring Center but thats about all you can do without the blu-rays.

I kind of wish I hadn’t preorderd my Lost blu-ray season 5 special Dharma Initiative set back in July because I am gonna be getting it two days late because of delievery. (I know that last sentance made me sound like a huge nerd. I am a huge nerd and I am proud to be a huge nerd.) The Dharma Special Edition is supposed to be a kit that new Dharma recruits recieve when they begin. It has a cafeteria menu, and other Dharma pamphlets, a Geranimo Jackson CD, an orientation VHS, Dharma patches, and a secret package. I am so excited to get this! You only have two more months to start or finish rewatching the first five seasons!
