Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Why has nobody mentioned Sayid wearing Horace's jumpsuit? They seemed to make a big point of it?

Wasn't "Horace" the skeleton guy Hurley found in the van? Or am I misremembering that?

No, the guy in the van was Roger Workman aka Roger Linus aka Ben's Jerkass Dad.

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

Ah... thanks. Then I wonder what the point was of Sayid taking Horace's jumpsuit. It could have been anybody's for going undercover. In fact it SHOULD have been anybody's instead of such a prominent person's.

Isn't everything on the show about 6 degrees of seperation?

Since the cast is unlikely to be all killed, I'd say that they've time-travelled somewhere. And since the entire drama of Jack's actions revolve around the idea that time travel will neutralize everything they've been through, their bodies won't go along for the ride - they will travel into their bodies whenever they happen to be. The question is whether their memories will also be zapped.

If their bodies time travel then their memories will also travel, and then what was the fuss about Jack wiping out everyone's memories and destroying their history together so that they all become strangers? That could work w/n the established logic - to the extent that any logic has been established - but it wouldn't work dramatically at all.
If the 815 passengers get returned to their plane and wind up @Lax, would life in Dharmaville have gone back to it's original setting (bookclub brunches with Ben & Juliet?) as well?

I figured they were trying to show that the tunnel entrance to the Other's catacombs was in the basement of Horace's house, which turns out to also be Ben's house in 2004. We know this because in the future(present) we have seen Ben use the basement to enter the catacombs.

I assume showing us this was just to tie up loose ends for earlier episodes, like where Ben went when he summoned Smokey.

Re: Lost Fifth Season Finale: "The Incident"

This is another thought I just had.

We still haven't seen the stealing of the other raft (by Sawyer & co.) from the new crashies point of view. That means at some point they have to leave the "foot" and return to the beach and see Sawyer & Co. paddling away and then give chase. Then Juliet will shoot one of them. I wonder who gets hit?

I thought we'd get this scene this season, but I guess it is still to come next year.


...Unless the future has been changed and it now never happens...

Oh. My. God. That was just excellent! Watching that episode was one of the most gripping TV experiences I ever had. I don't know why I didn't start to follow this show earlier. It amazes me how the writers, directors and actors constantly manage to produce such wonderful episodes. I love this show! How the fuck am I supposed survive the next nine months?

About the statue, where is the rest of it? If it was destroyed, where is the rubble left from it? It's like the rest just... disappeared.
I always figured it's lying in the water. Is that improbable?

The same way the rest of us managed it for the last two years.

One good thing about season 6 being the final season; this is the last time those bastards can do this to us and expect us to wait almost a year to find out what happens. And if the series finale ends on a shocking twist with no explanation then I am going to kill Damon and Carlton. Slowly.

Wow! The ending was a direct rip-off of Beneath the Planet of the Apes.

Yeah, I know. I, on the other hand, watched the whole series in one long session in the course of a little over a week. So I never really had to wait up until now. Oh boy, I'm not accustomed to wait so long.

Screw the journey! I have invested over four years into this show and this finale made me realise that I still don't have a clue as to what the frak is going on!

Wow. That season finale was either the BEST episode ever or the WORSE episode ever. I still haven't made up my mind.
