Now that I’m almost completely out of time I thought I’d float out a new thought. I was rewatching the Season 5 premiere again and I noticed something interesting. Sawyer, Juliet, Daniel, Miles and Charlotte go for a jaunt into the jungle. They go searching for The Swan to verify what year it is (a useless idea since they have a flash once before they get there and another while they’re leaving). Through Locke’s story we know that at the point when they get to the Swan it is 2007, after Ajira crashes on the Island. Richard met him in that episode under “Locke”‘s direction. What caught my eye was the condition of The Swan.
Unfortunately I couldn’t embed this one like I did with the two previous parts.
ABC just posted another Mysteries of the Universe segment. This one is far more interesting than the last one.
DarkUFO recently posted a link to this video from abc.com. It’s a fake documentary program about the Dharma Initiative. So far it is mostly just stock footage with a foreboding voice-over but there are still four more videos that are going to be posted over the next few months.
Exactly six months ago Anon, a frequent commenter, posted a large-ish Annie theory on my blog. In the last six months many things have changed, so she revised here theory and sent it to me again.
Hold on to your hats everyone, this theory is a doozy (it’s actually more like a screenplay):
Tags: Ben, Bernard, Bram, Christian, Claire, Dharma, Esau, Frank, Hurley, Ilana, Jack, Jacob, Jin, Juliet, Kate, Libby, Locke, LOST, Miles, Ms. Hawking, Nadia, Phil, Pierre, Radzinsky, Richard, Rose, Sawyer, Sayid, Sun, The Black Rock, The Others, The Statue, The Swan, The Third Party, Vincent
So that was fun(ish).
I’ll try to start on a positive note. Jacob was awesome! Who knew he would be so likable. I kinda expected him to be quite distant and cold. But he was great. And that storyline that they started with Jacob and his nemesis was pretty epic. It’ll make for some great conflict next year (provided history isn’t erased, hahaha). New “Locke” is going to make for a very interesting villain.
That was a pretty epic reveal. It was all for shock value, it didn’t serve any real purpose except to confirm our suspicions about this new “Locke”. But really, it surprised me, and really raised the bar.
Uh oh I’m running out of nice things to say. Damnit, why did Juliet have to die? I’m back to having no one left to like anymore. This is going to be season 1 all over again. The only people I like are guest stars.
The flashbacks in this episode were slightly interesting, but they didn’t really hold my attention. The two good ones were Hurley’s and Ilana’s. The other ones were just filler. (Especially Juliet’s, what the hell was that?)
The one thing about this episode that I liked was the discovery of this new part of the story with Jacob, his nemesis and that new world. That will give me a lot of fodder for theorizing over the break. I could live without the rest of the episode. So where does that leave us? How much should I give the finale that I was almost completely unimpressed with? It can’t be less that 5, that’s not giving Jacob enough credit. but it’s definitely not more that 8.0. I’d say 7.0/10.0 A disappointing end to an epic season. (Jump to the bottom for more discussion on the score, I know many of you will be surprised/pissed about the score.)
