Usually I watch the polls and silently enjoy watching all of your weird choices. But last week had some very interesting debates so I thought I’d publicize the results. This is also another chance to vote.
I discuss the results below, but the polls are still open and will be open until the mysteries are solved. So things could change.
Who is David’s Mother?
The real fight is between Juliet and Sarah for the maternity of David. I still think it’s going to be Juliet. Sarah is great, but with such a small amount of episode left I find it hard to believe that we have time left for Sarah. From a logistic point of view it would be pretty crazy if either of these actresses had enough time to play this role. Elizabeth Mitchell is filming the surprisingly not canceled V and Julie Bowen is starring in the surprisingly acclaimed Modern Family (no I haven’t watched either yet).
I found that a lot of people are trying to choose a less blond mother for David. Sure the kid has perfectly black hair, but if they got a blond kid then it would have been weird. I don’t think the kids coloring is a huge hint.
A friend of mine and a commenter even said that they think the mother might be Ilana. I scoffed a little at that. I think the writers are aware that many people aren’t Ilana fans. I wouldn’t mind if Ilana was thrust into the main story like that, but it seems unlikely. Besides if we ever had an Ilana episode I don’t think it would be about how she was knocked up by Jack. Hopefully she’ll have an episode that explains a little bit about her relationship with Jacob.
I’m quite disappointed that three people chose Kate. Come on.
On the other hand I’m grateful to the weirdos who think that Ana Lucia stands a chance.
Who’s Coming to the Island?
I don’t buy the theory that 108 Wallace was misdirection, or a red herring. Someone is still coming to the Island and I think this episode is supposed to make us excited about who it is.
And I’m definitely leaning more towards Desmond now and not Mr. Widmore. It was a toss-up for me when I was writing the Revlysis, but now I’m willing to say that I think it’s Desmond. And it looks like most people agree with me.
I’m disappointed that very few people voted for Walt. I think I may be sitting on a very empty boat still hoping the kid comes back.
(Look at that tiny little post.)
