I’m still reeling from everything that happened in this episode. I had to wait a day to write this post in the hopes that I would calm down a little (it didn’t work).
So Ilana’s dead. I didn’t see that coming. In fact seconds before she died I assured my friends that she wouldn’t die. It felt odd having the rug pulled out from under me like that. For the rest of the episode I was paranoid. I think the floodgates are opening, people are going to start dying, and quickly. It’s a scary thought. As I said a few times during the episode, every thing’s changed.
Back to the story. On the Island Hurley was struggling through leadership problems. He has no actual authority or even much of a plan, but he has unwarranted conviction. So far that’s worked for him. Who knows where it’s going to get him.
Desmond had a little fun with Locke on the Island. He was thrown down a well at the end of the episode, but I don’t think many of us believe that he’s actually dead. Vincent will find him and go get help.
Then there’s that final scene. I don’t even know what to say about that. It’ll be up there as one of the most shocking moments in Lost history. It’s one of those endings that causes a room to stay silent for minutes after the shows has ended.
I can see no reason why this episode shouldn’t get a ten. We got a heartfelt apology from Michael, an answer to the Whispers mystery, Hurley and Libby got together, Hurley crossed over between timelines, Ilana died, “Locke” tried to kill Desmond and Desmond tried to kill Locke. I have a feeling that these episodes are just going to get more and more intense. If you were worried that the episodes weren’t feeling “final” enough, well I think that’s changed now. 10.0/10.0
The more I think about this theory, the more likely it seems.
I have an old theory regarding The Whispers, it’s old and not terribly exciting. After the last two episodes I want to create a new theory about The Whispers. I now believe that The Whispers are the group of time travelling Oceanic survivors and co. Daniel says that they will fail if they try to communicate with themselves or people that they know, perhaps The Whispers is them trying. Or maybe it’s not them, but it’s other people in the same time travelling loop.
Anywho, I’m going to write this up on my theories page soon, hopefully it will make more sense there. Stay tuned.
