I’m not much of a live blogger. I like to experience something, sit with it, stir around with it, before commenting on it. Still, I figured I’d give it a go, and with what else but LOST.
–Opening with Jack’s eye. I’ve seen this before. Where’s the dog with the white tennis shoe? The whole series began this way.. No "I wish…" note though. Is that Hurley we hear?
Hurley with Charlie’s guitar case? Like that’d keep the man afloat? This is the river where Sawyer and Kate dove for the suitcase with the pistol. Of course she’s alive. Silly.
Aww. The lovely Miss Hawkings. She’s ready to get started, no Kate, no Aaron, no Hurley, no Sayid. Just Sun, Desmond, Jack, and Ben. Ben looks as if he’s never been here before, at "The Lampost." Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but Ben told Locke that the person who moves the island can never go back. So Ben’s not going to the island? Just coercing them all into going back?
"This man" determined equations to figure out where the island was going to be. Who was "this man?" Daniel?
Jack has a binder that tells him Nagira Airlines. I’ve heard that name before. Flight 316. That was the airline Juliet mentioned two episodes ago, the one with the funky water bottle washed up with the old-school boats. So when Sawyer and crew were being shot at for stealing the boats, it was in the future, and the people shooting at him were quite possibly Jack and co. But why wouldn’t they all time jump together?
John Locke… "I wish" note from the dead. Why would Jack buy it? I thought the island wouldn’t let you kill yourself? Ms. Hawkings tells Jack to give something of his father’s to John Locke’s corpse. "Leap of faith…" thrown around again.
Who’s Ben lighting a candle for? Alex? Oh good, some Jesus talk. I should wake the kids for this. "We’re all convinced sooner or later," anyway. A promise to an old friend… hmm. To try to kill Penelope Widmore? A promise to Charles to get him back? Obviously he can’t kill Charles, as he’s his constant.
Jack, when the phone rings, you say, "This is he," not "This is him."
Ray, huh? Grand-dad. Who says the word Grand-dad? Oooh, cue the music. It’s your father’s shoes. That could drive a Jack to drink… well, what do you say?…
Who will be that noise coming from somewhere in his house? Someone’s alseep. Is it gold-i-locks? Are you two gonna smooch? Ugh, Kate, WTF? Seriously? Never ask me about your own nephew ever again if you expect me to return to the island with you? Come on.
Hot damn, Jack just mentioned the white tennis shoes, the ones he put on his father, the one in the dog’s mouth at the opening scene of the PILOT episode of Lost. Just a guess here.
Who doesn’t read someone else’s suicide note? Come on.
Oh, no you didn’t. "Condolences on your friend." Who are you? The bad dudes who are shooting bullets at Sawyer, Juliet, and co., in the flash forward? Oh, look, Sayid in handcuffs, just as Kate was.
Obviously Charlie must have visited Hurley telling him to go back, why else the guitar case? Notice Desmond is not on the plane? Oh for the love of smoke monsters will you read the letter Jack!!! Woo hoo. Frank Lapedis. "We’re not going to Guam are we?" FUCKING LOVE IT.
Ben’s reading Joyce’s Ulysses. Ben’s going to rip that letter out of Jack’s hand. He’ll never read the thing. Ben, you’re not going to let Jack read that. You’re going to plant doubt in his mind and trick him into not reading it, while you send the plane down. Cause that’s what you do.
Okay, so you read it, and it was short. I wish you had believed me.
And just like that, you can’t remember anything, same as in Narnia.
