Lost rant

Ok, we're about to have some spoilery like stuff so here comes the cut.

So ya'll know that that entire first three seasons consisted of flashbacks where we got to know the survivors prior to the crash. Season three was us getting to know the Others and the season finale was a flash forward. Season four has been nothing but flash forwards but they all seem to go backwards in time from the point of the flash forward at the end of season three. That's how we know who gets off the island and who doesn't. All this has been making sense up until the last two eps that they've aired so far in season four. In the one where Jack and Kate are all shacked up Jack tells Hurley that after the trial he decided that being with Kate and Aaron was what he wanted. This makes no sense according to the pattern that the flash forwards have been following because it isn't going backwards. Then this ep that I'm watching now (I love the thing that the new Windows does where you can have the little screen showing while on something else. So cool!) Cabin Fever is all about John Locke from birth and onward and how people from the Island have been stalking him his entire life.

I'm all scatter brained fucked about the unorder of the flash forwards. The ep where Sun took her and Jin's daughter to his grave had Hurley in it clearly not mental institution bound. I took this to mean that this was before he was admitted. But now I don't know.


I'm completely caught up now.

The Jack/Kate episode actually makes sense-remember when we had the Kate episode with the trial where it was revealed that she had Aaron? Well, after that, Jack and Kate obvo hooked up and wanted to get married, and obvo, Jack started going down his downward spiral into alcoholism and becoming a wreck. Especially once Kate dropped the S-Bomb. Whoooo boy.

Anyway, then we're brought to the season three finale. Bearded Jack, stumbling around, who wants to get back to the island.

Regarding Jin and Sun, I'm thinking that since there will be a season five, Sun will be a bit more preggers then, and maybe we'll have seen Jin die (WHY LOST, WHY??). Then, the 'Oceanic Six' gets off the island, and Hurley is obvs still feeling fine enough to wander around the world to see Sun with the new baby and to visit Jin's grave (with the date of death the date of the crash).

I loved that episode, actually. It blew my mind, made me want to throw something at the television, and want to cry at the same time.

Basically, the flashforwards are as mis-jointed as the flashbacks. In any given episode, they don't tend to tell the whole story. Like when we saw the second Sayid episode, remember? The first one was when he was all Spy-ish, and working for Ben, the second, how he became Ben's killing machine. Hopefully we'll have a Ben ff episode going into more detail with him and Widmore and his interactions with the rest of the survivors (if there is any to begin with).

OH OH OH! ALSO, I forgot to add, something to ponder:

Young Emily Locke gave birth early and wailed 'name him Joohhnnn!'

Older Emily Linus gave birth early and wailed 'name him Bennn!'

Um, are they the same Emily? Possibly? I know we've apparently met Locke's mum, but you know those Lost producers/writers-always fucking with our minds!

But she dies! Maybe it's the connection? Idk, they are like peas in a pod. I really liked the part in Cabin Fever when Hurley shared his candy bar with Ben. So cute!
May. 10th, 2008 07:22 am (UTC)
...no she doesn't. Does she? No, she doesn't. Wait, who are we talking about?

Emily Linus dies, yes, right after popping out Ben. Younger!Emily Locke doesn't die after the car hits her, but her mother obviously didn't want her to bring up baby by herself out of wedlock (ooh, I just said 'wedlock' I feel so 50's right now), AND she kinda got cold feet about it all and ran out of the hospital of her own accord.

The older Emily Locke we see in season one could be a complete stranger for all we know, just working with Anthony Cooper to get a kidney and some cash.

True! Hum, I want to put that ep up now and I just loaned out my dvds of seasons 2 and 3. Drat.

I'm watching DW ep 4x4.... I love Donna. I can't say this enough. She is awesome!

I need a Donna icon. I need a lot of new icons. :(
May. 10th, 2008 07:28 am (UTC)
Donna really rocks my world right now. She's such a good companion, I can't believe I had my doubts to begin with.

And Martha is engaged? Thank god, she needed a man.
May. 10th, 2008 07:39 am (UTC)
I know, right? I'm so glad she's 'over' the Doctor. I mean, I'm sure there will always be a teeny tiny part of her that goes 'aww' (mainly because it's a tv show, and we need tension between companions, etc, yada yada), but no, we're good for now. : D

but up until the kate/jack ep they weren't disjointed. It makes perfect sense and I have a feeling what Kate is doing for Sawyer is checking up on his kid. I still want to know who was in the coffin that Jack went to visit.

I don't think Jin is dead, I think he stayed on the island. As for Sayid that ep fell in line with everything too. Have you read the theory that the island is actually a place stuck in time that never moves? That expalins a lot, even Ben asking what year it was. Like everything else ages and moves forward but the island (and everyone on it) stays completely still.

I'm catchin up on my DW right now and after this I plan on dling all of season 2 of Torchwood and seeing that. I'm siriusly behind.

Yeah, I know it wasn't disjointed, but the same thing goes with the flashbacks.

And yeah, Kate is totally checking up on Sawyer's baby mama and kidlet for him, and Jack CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!


No, I kinda think Jin is dead. I might be proved wrong when at the end of season five we see him giving up his seat on the helicopter (or whatever it'll be) for Sun, but I really think he died. Dies. I mean.
May. 10th, 2008 07:28 am (UTC)
another thing that bothers me is that Desmond said he saw Claire getting on the helicopter and leaving the island but when know she doesn't because of the whole Aaron thing and, well, if she's in Jacob's cabin I think it's safe to assume that she's appart of the island now.
May. 10th, 2008 07:29 am (UTC)
Ooooooh yeah...well fuck me sideways.

...seriously, I'm speechless.
May. 10th, 2008 07:18 am (UTC)

May. 10th, 2008 07:27 am (UTC)
But you did say you're catching up on DW, so...yeah. *grins* Keep your eyes peeled during 'The Poison Sky' mmkay?
May. 10th, 2008 07:28 am (UTC)
