It is Taweret

Taweret

In case anyone was still confused about this, The Statue is definitely Taweret.  Michael, in a comment after the finale, linked us to The Official Recap, which named Taweret.  But I know many people still doubted the Statue’s identity.  I say that the mystery is solved now because Doc Jensen posted the same link.  Therefore, if it was a typo or a mistake on ABC’s end then it should have been caught that that point.

There you have it.

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.

Taweret Statue four toed223-four-toed-foot-01

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.

516 - Black Rock 02the-black-rock-02

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?

516 (& 517) – The Incident

516 - Jacob 01516 - Taweret statue 01516 - Esau 02
516 - Jack 01516 - Inverted Lost 01516 - Locke 01
516 - Kate 01516 - Sawyer 01516 - Juliet 01

Review:

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.)

508 – LaFleur

508-statue-four-toed-01

Review:

Anybody surprised by Sawliet?  It’s not the couple that shocks me, it was the whole “I love you” thing.  I didn’t expect them to be so serious.  And it’s nice that Sawyer swore off Kate, but I think that might have just been a setup for some internal struggle.  [sigh..]

So they’re stuck in Dharma times.  1974-1977, I hope we get flashbacks during that large gap.  What we got tonight was a great setup for a fun little era.  The Dharma era on the island isn’t the most unknown of the islands mysteries, but it’s a large span and we can be sure that a lot will happen.  A lot already did happen, we got to see the dynamic between Dharma and the Hostiles, we saw a few of the Dharma crew at work, and any parts with Horace are fun.  I can’t say that I like the new girl, Amy, but maybe when she stops crying I’ll like her more (it’s very unusual that I’m not liking a new character).

But who really cares about Dharma when we got to see the four toed statue in all it’s glory.  I don’t want to go too deeply into my theories about it here, skip to the end if that’s all you care about.

This episode was a great example of a setup episode.  There have been a lot of setup episodes over the course of the show, and not all of them are good.  They seem to postpone the action and excitement until the next episode.  This episode has a balanced amount of both setup and story development. 7.5/10.0

Foreign Theories: Top 11 Time Travel Pitstops

It might be a stretch to call this a theory.  Doc Arzt has created a little list of some of the fun historical moments of the islan that he looks forward to seeing this season.  It’s something that I was thinking about recently but I didn’t want to blog about.  He gets all the important points and I encourage you to check it out here.  Although if it was my list I’d put Rousseau first, and I wouldn’t list the Real Henry Gale, I couldn’t care less about him.

409 – The Shape of Things to Come

409-alex-keamy-01409-ben-03Review:

This episode is insano.  This only the second Ben episode and already his episodes are the best.  No one else has such informative flashbacks/forwards, and no one is in the middle of things like Ben.  It’s hard to believe that he is just a supporting character.

On to the episode.  This episode has completely different interpretations now that season 4 is done.  Ben’s flashback is suddenly logical and understandable.  Now that we know exactly what preceded this flashforward we can understand his actions.

As for the actions on the island…well there is too much to say.  Ben controlling Smokey, Alex dying, Claire “dying”, Sayid coming under Ben’s control, Daniel lying, Jack nearly “dying”, Ben conversing with Mr. Whidmore; it was so much insanity that it’s hard to keep track of it all.  I don’t want to go too deeply into it here (keep reading if you want to see me go too deeply into it) but I just want to say that this episode will likely be the basis for many more storylines in the future.

10.0/10.0

223 – Live Together, Die Alone (part 1)


Review:

Note: I split this episode in half at the point when Michael admits to working for the Others.  The next part starts with Sayid praying.

Another one of my favorite episodes. 

Desmond comes back out of no where.  It’s always great to see him, and this episode is the start of his run as a real cast member.

Locke finds out he was wasting his time in the Swan and he takes things way too far.  Nothing really happens in this half of the episode.  He gets into the Hatch and Desmond closes the blast doors.

Sayid, Sun, and Jin take the sailboat on a pleasant cruise and see a certain statue.  This part of the story goes no where, it’s mostly just to ge the characters out and about.

And Michael leads Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and Hurley across the island.  Hurley meets his bird and he also find out that Michael is a monster.

We also get to see the beautiful and mostly tragic story of Desmond.  He meets with two of my favorite female characters Libby and Penny.  He also meets Charles Whidmore, possibly the evil man behind… well most things in Lost.  But mostly we see that Desmond’s life has been significant;y more exciting than most of the Oceanic survivors. 

Awesome characters, terrific flashbacks, excellent mysteries, and a glorious set up.  10.0/10.0  and the episode isn’t even over yet!
