Foreign Theories: When the Statue Fell

505-locke-frozen-donkey-wheel-01

This theory isn’t actually very foreign.  It was proposed by a reader of this blog, Parisa.  You can read her comment here.

What she proposes is that when Locke turned the Frozen Donkey Wheel in episode 505 – This Place is Death, that caused an earthquake.  Miles actually mentioned an earthquake, I had completely forgotten about that.  If you’ll recall when Locke turns the wheel, our group is on the Island at a time when the Statue is still standing.  The only other time we’ve seen that statue standing is in the opening scene of 516 – The Incident.  It’s very possible that those two scenes happened at the exact same time.  And let’s all suspend our disbelief for a second and remind ourselves that this is Lost, that kind of coincidence isn’t out of the ordinary.

So the point of all that was to show that Locke turning the Wheel was likely the cause of the statue to fall.

But the theories not over yet.  Parisa next says that turning the Wheel also caused the Island to move and possibly scoop up a certain ship that we saw floating in the water near the Island.  The next time we see the Black Rock (assuming that the ship is the Black Rock) it was in the middle of the jungle.

That’s a very tidy little theory, and I found it extremely convincing.

What do you think?

    Tidy indeed! I like how it answers the Black Rock location question more than how it answers the statue question.
    There is a theory out there that Jacob or the Other Man controlled the time jumps to some extent, like maybe the Other Man made sure Locke met Richard in 1954. These two theories would make sense if one of them wanted the ship in the middle of the island.
    Brilliant!
