LOST, Season 6, Episodes 17&18, The End, Parts 1 & 2

Okay, let’s just get this out of the way first, because it may have caused some confusion. The Losties were not dead for all six seasons. The stuff that happened on the Island happened to them...the Oceanic 815 crash, the time jumping, the button, the freighter...all of it...happened. The Flash Sideways, however, was where the Losties went after they died, awaiting the arrival of the other important people from their lives. The hydrogen bomb that detonated at the end of last season did not trigger the Flash Sideways. All it did was destroy the station, and I guess one can assume that Jack, Kate, Sawyer, et al didn’t die in that blast because they were protected as Candidates.

And for the final time, away we go...

Desmond: His unique ability in handling large doses of electromagnetic forces somehow allows him to remove the stone that kept the Light on and prevented the Island from going dark. Once removed, the light from the underground chamber went out and the water from the stream stopped flowing. Oh, and the Island became unstable and was rocked by small quakes. Jack gets him out of the chamber so he can return home to Penny. In Purgatory, his whole mission has been to pull all of these awaiting consciousnesses (is that a word?), or souls, of the Losties. A mission he’s accomplished wonderfully, brotha, with a little help from Hurley.

Uncorking the Island: Once the Light was darkened when Desmond pulled the stone plug, the power that had been bestowed upon SMonster, the power of immortality, was gone. If you assume Jack also gained a similar power when he took over from Jacob, you can also assume he lost the power too at this time. The problem, however, is that once the Light went out, the end of the world was started. With the stone removed, the Island essentially was dying, and with it, so would everything else.

SMonster: Assists Jack in getting Desmond down the chamber to venture into the Light, but once done and the resulting quakes begin, he and Jack fight as Jack attempts to keep the SMonster on the Island. During the fight, he knifes Jack in the abdomen and also cuts him slightly on the neck. Distracted, and not knowing that his immortality no longer exists, he is shot by Kate and fall. Jack then kicks him over the cliff where he crashes to death on an outcropping of rocks above the surf line.

John Locke: In the Purgatory Flash Sideways, after getting surgery on his back by Dr Jack Shephard, he flashes back to the Island timeline, and realizes that he is about to move on to his next existence. “I hope someone does for you, what you just did for me”, Locke says, meaning that he hopes that someone triggers Jack’s memory about what is happening.

Jack: Jack took on the role of Jacob, but did hold this position long. The stab wound from SMonster was a mortal wound and Jack knew this. To ensure the Island would stay protected, he mixed up a bottle of water (didn’t say any incantation or make any magic happen) and passed the baton of Island Protector to Hurley, who drank the water. One final act existed for Dr Shephard...replacing the stone in the hole of the Chamber of Light. Once he completed this task, the Light returned, the water began flowing again, the World was saved, and the end of Jack Shephard was near. But his arc of redemption was complete: he gave his life to protect others. In the Purgatory line, seeing Kate and ultimately the empty coffin of his father triggers his memories of the Island as he accepts that it’s time to move on. This story has really always been about Jack Shephard.

Hurley: Takes over the role of Island Protector from Jack before Jack succumbs to the mortal stab wound from SMonster. Over in the Purgatory side, when the end comes he knows what’s going on as does Desmond (and so, apparently does Boone). Going back to the first episode of the season on the Oceanic 815 flight, Hurley told Sawyer “I’m the luckiest guy alive.” I think Hurley arrived on the flight having died on the Island after his stint as Protector and was no longer the loser Hurley, but the Island Protector Hurley.

Ben: Ben does not go through with his statement to the SMonster that he would kill whomever needed to be killed. Instead, Ben helps Team Jackob defeat the SMonster. Ben’s reward for this? He becomes Hurley’s right hand man, his Number One (like Richard was to Jacob). Great scene between Hurley and Dr Linus in the Purgatory timeline. Great scene between Ben and Locke as John heads into the Purgatory church. Ben apologizes for what he did to Locke on the Island. Locke forgives him. Ben does not go in, however, likely he’s waiting for Alex and Danielle Rousseau.

Bernard & Rose & Vincent: Nice to see them, even if it was ever so briefly. And thanks for getting Desmond out of the well!

Daniel (Farraday) Widmore & Charlotte Lewis: Also nice to see them get together at Daniel’s recital, accompanied by Charlie Pace and his band Driveshaft.

Sun & Jin Kwon: In the Sideways, they meet up with Sawyer, aka James Ford, after they’ve had their revelation. Jin smiles, knowing that Ford will soon join them on their continuing journey.

Frank Lapidus & Miles Straum: Nice to see that Lapidus was not killed in the sub accident after all. With the help of Miles and Richard he is able to get the Ajira plane ready for take-off. As they are getting ready to take off, Sawyer and Kate come out of the jungle with Claire. They board the plane and take off, flying over a dying Jack as they leave the Island.

Richard: Somehow freed from his immortal life, most likely when Jacob died. Finds a grey hair on his head and smiles. Works with Lapidus and Miles to repair the plane. When he leaves the Island, it will be for the first time for a very, very, very long time, well over 100 years.

The Flash Sideways, it turns out, was a purgatory-like place that the souls, for lack of a better term, of our favorite Losties stayed in until the whole group was back together. To be together meant they had to die, but since purgatory has no sense of time, it didn’t matter how long it took for their mortal life to pass. It was a place for these friends/family, a place created by them to await the people they want to be with when the pass over to whatever happens after purgatory. Maybe something, maybe nothing. In our Losties’ in-between area, it seems that the first person who would’ve been there was Christian Shephard, and they all waited until Hurley and Ben arrived after their undisclosed length of time as Caretakers of the Island, before going into the light. They are led on this final journey by Jack’s father, Christian Shephard.

And as the series began, the final scene was that of Jack on the Island, on his back in the bamboo forest. This time, however, he’s dying from the stab wound. Vincent saunters over from the bushes and lays next to Jack. A close-up of Jack’s eye and it shuts.

Other stuff

--The themes of redemption and relying on others were central to this show and highlighted especially here in this final episode.

--Not sure why Jack would’ve had a kid in the Flash Sideways timeline as he didn’t have a kid in his real life.

--Not sure why Aaron was a baby in the Flash Sideways Purgatory. Did he die as a child, or were the Purgatory memories from the time they first met?

--Michael was not in the Church at the end with the other Losties because he already explained that he did bad things in his life that will keep him trapped on the Island, probably whispering a lot.

--It was never explained why Walt was so special, as referred to by Tom, aka Mr Friendly. The Others took Walt (for Jacob, one assumes) for some reason, but once he left the Island, we only saw him a couple of other times. Also wonder why he wouldn’t have joined them in the Flash Sideways in the Church.

--We never learned what caused healing to occur on the Island, especially in the cases of Locke and Rose.

--Knowing that the cut on Jack’s neck came from the blade of SMonster makes it seem like the first scene of this final season, with Jack and many of the other Losties on the Oceanic 815 flight, was the point when Jack had died on the Island and was now on his way to wait in the Flash Sideways Purgatory for his other friends to arrive.

--The scenes of the characters reuniting as they got closer to leaving the Purgatory were really good, I thought. My favorites were Sawyer & Juliet, and Charlie & Claire.

--With the SMonster killed, it would appear that all subsequent caretakers of the Island won’t have to worry about the eeeeevil escaping, they’ll just have to prevent Mankind from trying to take the Light from the Island.

--Nice scene with Hurley and Ben outside of the Church, when Hurley tells Ben that he was a good Number Two, and Ben replies that Hurley was a great Number One.

I’m glad the writers/producers stuck to their story lines instead of coming up with a lame final episode. It doesn’t matter that all the little detailed questions weren’t answered. I watched this show for all six seasons because the characters and how they interacted was what drove this series. The Island, the mysteries were all great additions, but the show was about these main characters. And quite honestly, knowing that in the end they found their peace made for a nice happy ending for a bunch of people who really had difficult lives.

Thanks for reading everybody!



Did You Know Tuesday

Did you know that W.A. Bean & Sons in Bangor, Maine have been selling quality meats and products for 150 years? Probably best known for the red hot dogs (‘red hots’), W.A. Bean also has pork products, chicken, pepperoni, roast beef and tuna, as well as breads, cheeses, deli meats and rolls, just to name some of their extensive product line.

Want to know how a hot dog is made? Well, okay, maybe not. But if you do, local Bangor newswoman Sharon Pelletier went to W.A. Bean and learned the process back in January 2010 and has the story here. (Note: Link available and working as of this post)

So the next time you’re in Maine, be sure to grab a Beans red hot dog or visit their shop on the Bomarc Road.

Congrats, W.A. Bean on your longevity in business in Maine! Here's hoping you have another 150 to go.

LOST Season 6 Episode 16 What They Died For

“We’re very close to the end, Hugo” - Jacob

No kidding.

Jacob: Jacob selected Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, Sayid, the Kwons, etc. from their banal, going-nowhere lives as the Candidates to take over for him. One would need to take over his role as Island Protector. With Jacob’s ashes slowly burning away in the fire, someone would have to step up. After admitting that it was he who created the SMonster (by hucking his dead brother’s body down into the Stream of Light), and it would now be the responsibility of one of the Candidates to keep SMonster on the Island. To let him leave would mean that the secret of the Stream of Light would get out and presumably, all of mankind would fall. Jacob picked people who were like him, flawed, alone, but trying to correct past wrongs, people who were like the show’s title, lost. Jacob, unlike when the role was put upon him, allows the four remaining Candidates (Kate, Hurley, Sawyer, and Jack), whom can all see Jacob now, free-will to take over the role. He tells Kate she was crossed off the list because she became a mother. Does he mean to Aaron, or is she really now pregnant (with Jack’s kid)?

Jack: Accepts the role of the Candidate, drinks the magic water-to-wine given to him by Jacob (in the same way Eve gave the wine to Jacob) and in drinking it, Jack accepts the role. Call him Jackob. Jack has been a complete a-hole for so much of the show in his always wanting to be in charge, even when his decisions proved wrong over and over again. In his return to the Island on the Ajira flight (only three weeks ago, Island time), he has humbled himself and stepped back, allowing others the right to make decisions without Jack always overriding them. He has come full circle and hit some redemption. Flash-Sideways Jack is going to a concert that his son (David) is part of, and expects to see David’s mother there. As we have yet seen who the mother of Jack’s son is, it’s safe to assume we’ll see her at the concert. most likely the one being held at the museum where Miles’ father works (as does Charlotte). Likely this will be the same concert that Desmond is bringing Hurley, et al to also. A Driveshaft concert, perhaps?

Adam/SMonster/FLocke: Getting ready for the final battle to get off the Island. He offs Zoey by slitting her throat. He gets Ben to join him, asking him to kill some people. Ben agrees, but this could be subterfuge on Ben’s part. Regardless, Adam’s agenda is to destroy the Island. Flash Sideways Locke returns to see Jack and talks about his experience being hit by Desmond, what Dr Linus told him about his encounter with Desmond, and that he believes destiny is bringing them together.

Charles Widmore: Claims he returned to the Island after Jacob visited him and invited him back.....? Before being shot and killed by Ben, Charles tells Adam/SMonster/FLocke that he came back to get Desmond back on the Island because of his unique resistance to electromagnetism, making him a measure of last resort, a fail safe to ensure that SMonster does not get off the Island. But how?

Ben: Kills Widmore after Adam talks to him, ensuring that Widmore will not be able to save Penny if Adam does leave the Island. Agrees also to kill some people for Adam, but ‘who’ has yet to be revealed. Flash Sideways Ben gets beat up by Desmond as Des continues his trek to merge the timelines by using violence to flash the other timeline into the memories of the Flash Sideways characters. The scene between Mr Locke and Dr Linus in the hospital was interesting, as Ben describes his experience with Desmond, unbeknownst to Ben is that Mr Locke also had the same experience.

Richard: Gets lifted up and chucked by the SMonster, but we don’t see if he is actually killed or not.

Hurley: Working with Desmond in the Flash Sideways, he recognizes Ana Lucia, but she does not know him.

Danielle Rousseau: **va va vooom!** She pulls up to the school to pick up Alex and also meets Dr Ben Linus for the first time. She tells him that he has been like a father to her and suggests that they will be dining together often.

Desmond: Someone has gotten him out of the well (Sayid, perhaps?)? Jacob? Flash Sideways Desmond continues to bring the memories of the Island timeline into the minds of the Flash Sideways folks. He starts by beating up Dr Linus. After doing this, he turns himself into the police, who by no coincidence happen to be Sawyer/Ford and Miles Straume. They proceed to place him in a jail cell with Sayid (arrested for killing Keamey and his team), with Kate (arrested for stealing the car and being the fugitive on the run) in an adjoining cell. No coincidence there. Later meets up with Hurley, who brings money to pay-off corrupt cop Ana Lucia (hello, Ana!) who lets Kate and Sayid go. She takes some hush-hush money delivered by Hurley and leaves (“She’s not ready” according to Desmond) and they all leave to go to the concert (Kate with Desmond, and Sayid with Hurley). It’s doubtful this can be any concert but the one being attended to by Jack, his son and the as-yet-unknown-mother-of-Jack’s-kid-but-is-likely-someone-we-know.


--”If you want me I’ll be running through the forest”, Miles to Ben when learning that the SMonster was on his way.

--”I thought that guy had a God-complex before”, Sawyer to Kate after Jack accepts the role of Jacob to protect the Island

Yeah, I got this wrap-up out late, only hours before the final episode. I’ll put together a final wrap-up at some point over the next week. May take a while to write that one up.

Tune in tonight, Sunday, at 9pm EST for the final episodes of LOST. Although it’s being shown as a two-and-a-half hour finale, they actually have the episodes titled The End, Part 1 (episode 17), and The End, Part 2 (episode 18).

LOST Season 6 Episode 15 Across The Sea

Jacob and Man in Black are brothers? I didn’t see that coming.

“Every question I answer will simply lead to another question” - Eve

And that, my friends, is the writers and producers way of letting you know that they will clear up some of the questions this show has created, but not all of them. So, have fun with your theories and ides because that’s an underlying thing with this show...the people who watch are actively involved with it.

On we go.

Murdering Mom, who we can refer to as Eve, I suppose, was on the Island. It’s obvious someone/thing was there before her, but for our story, it starts with her. Oh, and she’s a murderer. Claudia was the victim of a shipwreck on the Island (probably not coincidence) and it was Murdering Mom (Eve) who knocked her with the rock and stole her just-born twins, Jacob and No-Name. It would appear to be set back in Roman times...? Anyway, raising these kids as her own, she has essentially been testing them to see who would be the one to protect the Island when she was gone. In end, it seems as though she knew it was her time to go, sending Jacob off to get firewood as Adam would come into the cave and kill her. Her “thank you” at the end would indicate that things went exactly as she planned them.Bold

Jacob: The good boy, wrapped in a white blanked after he was born. But his dark side would come through on two occassions. The first was when the teenage Adam wants to leave him and Eve to go join the “Others” on the Island, people who were part of the ship that crashed with their Mother - their real mother - on it. The second time when Adam killed Eve and he would take him down to the Stream of Light. Jacob would also face his own trials, including his short temper regarding Adam, and also his murder of Adam. (Biblical alert: this episode mirrors the story of Esau, brother of Jacob. Esau being the brother entitled to inherit the wealth of their father, but it was Jacob who would get it when Esau sold his rights away to Jacob.)

Adam: The evil one, wrapped in a dark blanket after he was born, a surprise to his real mother who didn’t even have a name picked out for him. His desire to leave the Island, to go across the sea, is what drives him. He’s only known the Island and wants to know what else is out there. After learning that his real mother was killed by Eve, he joins the Others and ends up manipulating them to dig the wells used to look for the electromagnetic anomaly which Adam hoped would lead him to the Stream of Light. It turns out that Adam becomes the SMonster after being killed by Jacob and thrown into the stream.

The Rules: Whatever powers these beings have as part of the Island-protecting they do, they are governed somewhat by Eve’s statement that she made it so that Jacob and Adam wouldn’t be able to hurt each other. (I guess the two beatings and the fact that Jacob killed Adam, albeit accidently before throwing him into the Stream of Light, don’t count.) This is why Adam/SMonster, in the shape of Locke, had Ben kill Jacob. That was his way around The Rules.

The Stream: The magic - or whatever you want to call it - of the Island has to do with the light that comes up from a stream running under the rocks. According to Eve, there is a little of this light in every living person. The warmest, brightest light you’ve ever seen or felt. But, it must be kept from humans because they will always want more and they will try to take the light. If they take the light it will go out, everywhere. Jacob and Adam have been groomed all of their life to protect this light from being found by Man. However, when Jacob beats Adam to a pulp for killing Eve, when he throws him into the stream, Adam’s head hits a rock and it kills him. It’s Adam’s dead body that is pulled down into the stream. Moments later, as the light dims, the SMonster comes roaring up and out of the stream entrance. It’s possible Eve was right when she told Jacob that if you go down into the Light, it’s worse than death.

The Island Wheel: First created by Adam. When he and the other Island people found the electromagnetic anomalies, they would dig deep wells trying to find the source. The Wheel was created by Adam to somehow manipulate the electromagnetic source and the water to move off of the Island. (Apparently they only end up in Tunisia, though.)

Adam & Eve: First found by Jack in the caves when he went looking for his father’s body, they end up being the lady who killed Jacob’s/Adam’s mother, and Adam himself. The black and white stones that Jack found in the leather sack in Adam’s hand were put there by Jacob and were from the board game that Adam played as a kid.


--When Claudia appeared to her son, Adam, and told him that she was his real Mother, do you think that was the SMonster in the shape of Claudia? Since Claudia’s dead body was on the Island, it would’ve been able to assume her shape.

--The young blond haired boy that FLocke/Adam/SMonster has been seeing is Jacob from when he was a teenager.

--Eve was able to wipe out the Other men that Adam was with, and fill in the well? All by herself? Maybe she was also the SMonster...

--Eve killed all of Adam’s men because they had seen the Light and had ideas of what to do with it. She had to kill them and fill in the well so Adam wouldn’t be able to do anything with the Light. She could allow them to leave the Island with knowledge of the Light.

--Adam was called special by Eve when he was younger. Walt was also called special and so was Aaron. Maybe kids are considered special because they haven’t been corrupted by being an adult.


--They are selecting a Candidate to take over for Jacob, to protect the Island from being used by outside men. Adam/SMonster wants to leave because he’s never been off the Island.

--It must be kids who are selected to be Candidates. Jacob and his brother were taken as kids. Also, The Others took the kids from Oceanic 815, and since The Others were working for Jacob, it would make sense they would take the kids.

Reminder: all of this season’s stories have been taking place in the Lost timeline over the course of about two weeks. It’s only been about two weeks since the Ajira plane that Lapidus was flying landed back on the Island with Jack, Hurley, Kate, Sun, Sawyer, etc. The night before that flight, Jack and Kate hooked up, remember? Is there a possibility that Kate is pregnant with Jack’s kids and they will both stay on the Island to prepare the next Candidates...their kids? Booyah!

Also, I’m guessing that Desmond is going to end up going into the Stream of Light, but because he is protected from these electromagnetic anomalies, he’ll be safe to enter the light...for whatever purpose he’ll need to this for.

The final regular season episode of Lost will air Tuesday night, May 17 at 9pm. This is Episode 16, titled What They Died For.

The final episode of Lost will be Sunday night, May 23rd. It is titled The End, and will be a two-and-a-half hours long, starting at 9pm EST.

Ep 17 The End (pt 1) will be shown as part of 2 1/2 hour series finale (Sunday, May 23)

Ep 18 The End (pt 2) will be shown as part of 2 1/2 hour series finale

Until next week, I gotta go fix my loom.

Lost, Season 6, Episode 14, The Candidate
Okay okay. I'm lame. At this point, though, it seems like it's just time to site back and enjoy the rest of the ride. The series is definitely moving towards some closure, as indicated by the ever increasing body count, and indicated by the fact that the two timelines are merging at such at rapid rate. (Though to be honest, the body has been rising all season, it's just been mostly with bit players who spend their time in the background of the show.)
See, once the Flash Sideways "collapses" (for lack of a better word), the Man in Black (FLocke) will no longer have another timeline to use as a way to show the Losties how things 'could've been'. That timeline will soon be no more, I think. But I've said this before.
Jin and Sun? RIP. Bummer to see you go (though we may see you a couple more times in the Flash Sideways), but it's not a shock to see characters dropping to the wayside. Though to be honest, I didn't think they'd be casualties of the Jacob/Man in Black game. I had hoped that they'd get home to Ji Yeon. But that won't be. She'll have one helluva trust fund, I imagine.
Lapidus? Yeah, bummed to see him go, assuming of course that he also died in the sub. Though this was not visually confirmed, it seems likely: knocked out by iron door, unable to escape from sub = drowned.
Sayid? It was obvious you would be part of the death toll, but at least you went out as the cool Sayid. And yes, it's obvious that Desmond convinced you that working for FLocke was not a good idea.
FLocke? His con to get them on the sub to wipe out as many candidates as possible failed (thanks Sayid!), but he'll keep trying.
Kate? Still the one candidate that nobody seems to know is available. FLocke thinks she's not one because her name was crossed off in the cave, but he doesn't know that she was still active on the Lighthouse list.
More losses will be on the way, but thus far the survival of Kate, Jack and Hurley still goes a long way towards my previously prediction that they'll be three that remain on the Island when Team Jacob beats down on FLocke and his flock. The sad part of that is that it's likely that Cindy and the kids could be cannon-fodder in the final upcoming battle.
I still believe Charles Widmore is working with Jacob and his reason for putting Sawyer, Kate, et al into the Hydra cages was to protect them. Widmore likely did not expect Jack to break them out, but what's done is done. But unless there's another of these rules we don't know about, why didn't Widmore just tell them "Hey, I'm here to protect you. Get in the cage", or something like that.
Sawyer: you idiot. If you hadn't pulled the wires out of the C4, it wouldn't have blown up. But his history with Jack is well known, and there was (is?) no way he'll follow Jack. Could Sawyer end up in the body pile when all is said and done? It seems likely.
The fate of Desmond? Hmmm...good question. I'm not sure. He'll obviously play a pivotal role in how this all shakes out, but whether he lives or dies is beyond me at this point. I hope he lives. We also have to see what parts Richard, Ben and Miles will play in the coming resolution.
I'd be okay with Widmore biting it, though. Zoey will be part of the grand solution along with Desmond. I may even have a sense that nobody else will be leaving the Island. We'll see.
As the Flash Sideways players continue to "see" (is that the right word?) what's going on in the Island timeline, it continues the merge of the two that we have also been seeing all season. Only one timeline will exist in the end, and it will be the Island timeline.
And Man In Black will lose and remain trapped on the Island. I think.
With this week's second to the last regular season episode, Across the Sea, the preview teased that it will be story about how Jacob and Man in Black came to be. That'll be a good one.
The following Tuesday we'll see the episode Why They Died and this will wrap up the regular weekly series episodes. Sunday night, May 23rd, the 2 1/2 hour season finale, The End (parts 1 & 2) will present the end as the writers and producers have been setting it up.
Will it meet your expectations? Who knows? The one thing I still want to know, however, is: what was in the bag that Hurley found in beach camp?
Until next time, I have to go and take a long, long look into my mirror.
