LOST QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED?

As we reach the end of the TV series Lost, like any other show, we want it to be resolved in our own perfect way.  Unlike many other shows, Lost made a deal with ABC to have an end date.  Most shows get cancelled prematurely and they just end with no series finale (Journeyman, Kidnapped, Day Break).   Then you get your shows that think they are coming back for one season but then get cancelled the summer before the new season would have begun (ie. Without A Trace, Veronica Mars). 

Recently we got kind of a cool thing when the ABC show Life on Mars was cancelled, although in its’ first season but they wrapped it up the show with the last episode.   And not to mention shows that have been on for a long run and the network allows them to make the annoucement that it is their last (ER, Cheers, Seinfeld).

During Lost’s third season, they negociated an end date.  The network wanted 6 full seasons of 22 episodes per, the Lost creators wanted 5 seasons.  They came up with a compromise for 6 seasons just with trimming the alloted hours for the last 3 seasons.  But having an endate has had it’s share of the good, the bad and the ugly.  Lost has had more good than bad, thus the huge devoted following.  But with so many people addicted to this show, you get your abundant folk of lost haters too.  Whether it’s love or hate, we should come to the easy compromise that we have enjoyed the journey. 

They have answered a lot of questions, but with every answer you get those who don’t like the answer.  So it we should know that not everyone will be happy.  We have longtime questions we want answered and we have some that there is no way they answering.   There are some questions that they have answered but not in the way some fans wanted them to be answered.  And yes, there are some questions we are holding out hope to be answered. 

There are five hours left.  So I put together a list of questions/answers.  I’m sure I could come up with a hundred and eight, but these are the ones that are on my mind : SHORT TERM QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS THAT HAVE COME UP IN SEASON 5 AND SEASON 6, and LONGTIME QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FROM SEASON 1-4.

LOST SHORT TERM QUESTIONS/ANSWERS :

 1.  Juliet set off the bomb, and the Losties did land in LAX.   However we see two timelines now.  It didn’t quit reset because it affected everyone before the flight.  I was expecting if the plan works, it would just reset.  But it seems to have affected everyone before flight 815.  So now it brings up the question :

 2.  What is the purpose of this other timeline and what does it have to do with our island timeline?  We’ve seen this other timeline through the term, flashsideways.  Jack has a son, Sawyer is a cop (but his parents still died in the same manner), Kate is still on the run but maybe for different reasons, Jin and Sun are not married, etc.  Ben and Roger Linus where on the island but left and started a life off island.  So what is the purpose of these flashsideways?  Character growth?  Different choices?  Is this to show us that this timeline is not Jacob or island influenced because of what we saw in the season 6 premiere LA_X :

 3.  How did the island sink?  Tons of fans think it happened after Juliet set off the nuke.  But could that have really sunk a large land mass?  With Roger Linus talking about Dharma and leaving, are we too assume he left before the nuke went off?  Or if this timeline is not island influenced, does  that means Juliet, Sawyer, Jack et all never came to the island (plus they landed in LAX) in the first place?  So that means they never travel to the 1970’s.  Ben doesn’t get shot by Sayeed, they don’t set the nuke off, etc.  Which leads us to :

 4.  Has this Flashsideways timeline always existed?  Is it Real?  Will these two timelines merge?  I’m sure we will find out by the end.

 5.  Who did Juliet shoot in the other outrigger?  In the season 5 episode, “The Little Prince“, our Losties were flashing through time.  Juliet shot someone in the other outrigger (that shot at them first).  Is it safe to say that Myles, Richard and Ben will be in the outrigger, so one of them get shot?  I hope it will all play out.

 6.  What is in the guitar case?  Answered, it was a huge Ankh with a list from Jacob with the names of candidates.  Kudos to the Nancy drew shoutout!

 7.  Did Sayeed kill Desmond?  I don’t think so but it will be fun to see if Desmond is still in the well or out.

 8.  Who is the candidate?  Is Jack the final candidate?  Is it all of them?  and why?

 9.  Is John Locke the man in black and/or smokey?  Yes and yes.

10.  Was Richard on the Black rock and how does he not age?  In the epic episode Ab Aeterno we get our answers.  Well, the Richard origin.  Richard was a prisoner/slave on the Black Rock and was given the gift (or curse) of  being able to live forever.

 11.  Why did Smokey/MIB become John Locke?  Well it’s a loaded question, but here are some facts : Jack bringing Locke’s body back to the island helped the cause.  Maybe that’s why Richard instructed many to bury the dead.  MIB claims that becoming John Locke helped in finally being brought to see Jacob.   Therefore he could have Ben kill him, finding his “loop hole”.

12.  MIB wants to go home, where is his home?  Is it back in time?  Is it to the world of the flashsideways?  Is it to 2007?  The future? What will happen if MIB does leave?

13.  Who is the boy who MIB is frustrated in seeing?  It could be Jacob?  MIB as a boy?  Who knows….

14.  How did MIB become Smokey?

15. When Sayeed got shot in the season 5 finale, is he going to die?  ANSWERED. Well he did die for two hours but was resurrected.  But he was claimed by evil.

16.  Will we see the temple?  Answered. We did and it was pretty cool.  We got to see the tunnel in which Rousseau’s team walked into in the episode This Place Is Death.  (That scene when Jack et. all went in carrying Sayeed is one of my faves of the season).  Then after being captured by The Others, we finally saw they amazing temple that we heard of first in season 4.  And 5 episodes later, smokey took it out.  We still think its standing but will we ever see it again?

17. Will we see Charles Widmore on the island?  ANSWERED.  Yes and we see him return to the island.

18.  What is the war that is coming?  Yes, we’ve seen the start and it looks like it’s between MIB, Widmore and The Losties.  “A wise man once told me…”

19.  Will we see Claire ever again?  ANSWERED, yes.  She was on the island for 3 years as a Rousseau look-a-like,  but we still need to know if she died in the explosion and then just got claimed?  Or did she get claimed by going with Christian aka MIB.

20.  Will we ever find out why some Losties flashed off Ajira in 1977 and some in 2007?

21.   What is Frank Lapidus a candidate for?  ANSWERED? Yes sort-of  but we really don’t know if he is a candidate for Jacob replacement. Illana blew up!  We could of used that freakin’ answer!

22.  Who is Illana, how does Jacob know her?  What happened to her to wind up in that hospital?  We find out her job is to protect Jacob…Then to protect the candidates…but then she blew up.  Backstory?  Probably not, but it would be very nice.

23.  Will we ever see Desmond again?  ANSWERED YES YES YES!!!!!

24.  Juliet told Myles it worked.  What work? and how did it work?

25.  Will we see if MIB was truly a man?  How did MIB and Jacob come to the island?  Where They were born on the island?

26.  (From Cutepoison10)  What are the rules the boy spoke of?

 

LOST LONGTIME QUESTIONS/ANSWERS

 1.  Who is Adam and Eve?  If they are not Rose and Bernard the Losties would most likely have to time travel again, right?  I feel they are Jack and Kate, they’ve been setting it up since the beginning and they did discover them in the cave and Locke said, “Our very own Adam and Eve.”

 2. What are the whispers?  So we found out through Michael they are lost souls who have died that are stuck on the island and they can’t move on.  So every time we heard the whispers does it mean that trouble is coming?  We hear the whispers when others pop out or smokey appears.   Is that why Ben told Rousseau to run when you hear them?  But nothing happened bad happened when Hurley heard them when Michael popped out.  Or did it?  Oh boy.  

 3. Was Christian Shepard  Smokey or himself?  Sort of answered.  MIB told Jack he was Christian.  Was he Christian on the freighter and off island?  Who was he when he told Michael he could go now?  Was it the island?  Smokey? 

 4. Will we get closure on Fertility problems on the island?  We know  that Jughead was under Dharmaville leaking radiation, did that cause the problem?   We don’t think it affected The Others because Eloise gave birth to Daniel.  But did affect the Ben others when they moved in to New Otherton?

 5. Will we see Walt or any of the kids again?  And what role, if any, will they play?

 6.  Food drop, will we get an answer of why it arrived in 2004 when Dharma had been shutdown for over ten years?

 7.  Will we see anymore Dharma?  The 80’s to the purge?  What happened after the incident?  Inman and Radsinsky in the hatch?

 8.  Will we see anything about the orchid and donkey wheel?

 9.  Will we see the Degruts and any goings on in Ann Harbor?

10.  Will we ever see Mr. Eko again?

11.   Will we ever find out if Claire and Aaron will leave on the helicopter?  Did Desmond change it or did he mistaken Claire for Kate holding Goober on the helicopter?…

12.  Will Widmore and Ben ever meet face to face again?

13.  Why did Widmore have nightmares when he was off island?

14.  Did Walt know Locke would die?

15.  The eye in the Arrow Station, who did it belong too?  Donald?

16.  Why did Radsinsky make edits to the orientation film?

17.  Will we ever find out if Mr. Paik has anything to do with Dharma or the end game?

18.  Will we find out who Desmond’s parents are?

19.  Is this whole world of Lost on a loop?

20.  Will we get the origin of the island?  The origin of Jacob?  Origin of the Smoke Monster?

21.  (From Cutepoison10)  What are the rules Ben mentions to Widmore?

 

Please let me know if there is anything  that you want added to the list.

‘LOST’ THEME PARK

My good friend Mike, who currently works at Disney, sent me a link from the Glendale Examiner, an article written by Kristy Stevenson.  It’s a great read and a great idea that all Lost fans would go crazy for : A Lost Theme Park Attraction!  There is some great quotes from Jon Stueve and Jeff Jenson.    Got to give props to our Lost community, it is a powerful one!

I read it and had to share it with you all.  My dream may come true :

Proposed LOST-themed Disney attraction  by Kristy Stevenson

Finally, a brilliant idea on how to make LOST live on after the end of Season 6. Darlton said it, themselves (actually, this is a Carlton Cuse quote, but you get the idea): 

LOST is a powerful franchise, and Disney (the parent-company of ABC) would be crazy not to continue it in some way.

The writers have confirmed that they will not be involved once their story is finished, and Darlton has said more than once that they will not take the path of Twin Peaks and the X-Files and create a LOST movie.

So where do fans go from here? To create a huge buzz for a LOST-themed Disney attraction, of course!

Jon Stueve, a LOST fan since the very beginning, has watched every episode as it aired and re-watched several the day after. Like most junkies (no offense intended here as I include myself among the addicted), he spent many a “morning after” kibitzing LOST theories at the office. Jon grew up in Southern California, visiting Disneyland many times and exploring Tom Sawyer Island as a kid. Although beloved, that island is outdated – and as is often the case at Disney parks: it’s out with the old and in with the new!

Currently part of Frontierland at both Disneyland (in California) and Walt Disney World (in Florida), Tom Sawyer Island is a prime choice to be transformed into the LOST island and a full-blown LOST experience. At least if Stueve gets his way.

Near the end of Season 5 of LOST, Stueve became active on Twitter (@LOST_WFTB, which stands for LOST: Watch From The Beginning), started following other LOST fans, and hatched the idea of a Twitter-based re-watch of all previous episodes as a way to keep the LOST fires burning during the excessively long hiatus. His efforts got noticed by Jeff “Doc” Jensen (@EWDocJensen) who writes LOST articles for Entertainment Weekly.

In a random tweeted conversation between Stueve and someone he follows, photos of Disneyland led to the statement, “Let me know when they’ve made Tom Sawyer Island into Dharma Island.” Having it out there, Stueve thought the idea was 1) humorous, and 2) had potential, so he made another public tweet. He was flabbergasted when Doc Jensen tweeted back, “I TOTALLY SECOND LOST_WFTB’s CALL FOR TURNING TOM SAWYER ISLAND AT DISNEYLAND INTO #LOST ISLAND! GET ON THAT, DISNEY!”

Jensen tweeted again, “LOST_WFTB: Seriously, dude. Start a petition. I’ll help promote it. We’ll get this done. I have no doubt Mighty Disney will bow to our will.” Stueve was floored that Jensen was not only reading his tweets, but replying. With a little online help, the LOST Themed Disney Attraction petition was born, and is now awaiting your signature!

http://www.petitiononline.com/lostdisn/petition.html

Damon Lindelof mentioned the petition effort at the LOST Underground Art Project event. He is signing it – you should too. Lindelof (@DamonLindelof) even tweeted back to Jensen with, “@EWDocJensen — Carlton and I have been pushing to get a damn polar bear on Tom Sawyer Island for YEARS!!!!”

Write your congressman … nah, that won’t work. Write to Disney and let them know that millions of rabid LOST fans who watch the ABC network every week could one day be pouring their money into Disney parks to live the LOST experience. When the final season is over, and the LOST Auction has come and gone, viewers will flock to Disney to get their LOST “fix.” Imagine taking your family to the beach site of the Oceanic crash or the caves where many survivors moved; into the Hatch to visit the Swan Station; through the Dharma barracks; up close and personal with the Smoke Monster; through the island ruins, Jacob’s cabin, and the statue of Tawaret; on a submarine ride to Pala Ferry; and directly to the Frozen Donkey Wheel beneath the Orchid Station.

Sign the petition, brutha.  Make your voice heard.  And when the attraction is built, I’ll see you there.

LIBBY : ONE FOR THE ROAD

My guess is we will not see Libby in season 6 of Lost.  Just a hunch.  She made her cameo in season 4 in “Meet Kevin Johnson.”  Yes, it was a waste.  We didn’t get enough.  A couple of weird moments with Michael, it would have been nice to see Cynthia as Libby in action.  But who knows, maybe it is a secret and she will agree to come back for an episode.  I got my fingers crossed.  If not, she could always go back to “Guiding Light.”  Oh wait, that soap was cancelled.  I just wish some of these guest star actors would just realize how lucky they were and are to be a part of the greatest network show of our time.

 ARTICLE ON LIBBY, ONE OF THOSE TAILIES THAT WE LOST…

Elizabeth “Libby” Smith was one of the tail-section survivors of Flight 815. She claimed to be a clinical psychologist before the crash, apparently dropping out of medical school sometime during her first year. After reuniting with the middle section survivors, she had short-lived relationship with Hurley. Michael shot and killed her out of shock, as she walked in on him fatally shooting Ana Lucia. (more…)

The Final Season Sweepstakes

By CTS, Lostpedia staff / ABC
ABC is presenting an opportunity to be among the first to see exclusive footage of the opening of Season 6. 815 winners will receive an exclusive message in a bottle with the opening scene to the final season premiere… days before it premieres. This is a great way for ABC to stimulate excitement for what will be an epic premiere of Season 6. Although, if I was one of the 815 winners, I’m not sure I’d want to read the opening prior to watching it on TV. I think part of the excitement and shock is going to be watching the opening on TV come February, 2nd 2010. Either way, it would be pretty cool to be among the first to get the exclusive opening scene prior to February 2nd. Read More Sweepstakes

iTunes Gives Away LOST Content

By Sam McPherson, Lostpedia staff / TVOvermind
The sixth season of LOST draws nearer. Come the new year, there will be thirty-three days until the two-hour sixth season premiere airs on ABC. While it’s certainly going to be the most memorable episode of LOST yet, iTunes wants to make sure that you don’t forget the rest of what’s gone on in the Lostiverse. That’s why, for a limited time, they’ve added some free downloadable LOST content to their store. Read more…

A NICE LOOK AT THAT NEW PROMOTIONAL PICTURE FOR SEASON 6 OF lOST. : THE LOST CASTS LAST SUPPER!

2010 GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS!

I’m a big Golden Globe fan, love that Hollywood Foreign press.  But no Lost as best drama!  No Terry O’Quinn?  No Josh Holloway?  Come on foreign press.  Michael Emerson did get a nomination, as he should.  But I’m a bit bitter that the rest of the cast didn’t get nods.

I am excited for George Clooney and Matt Damon, well deserved.  Plus Sandra Bullock  getting 2 nominations for The Proposal  and The Blindside, I love her.  But who I expect for to win and also take home oscar gold in February : QUENTIN TARANTINO (Picture/Director and CHRISTOPH WALTZ (Actor) – INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS.

Harold on Lost….

Below is the latest article that TV Guide did on whether Harold Perrineau would return to Lost in the final season.  Take part in the pole below, would you like to see Michael Dawson return to Lost?  I would.  Especially if he would return with that little boy, I mean, the growing teenager Walt.

Rumors are swirling that just about every past Lost cast member may be journeying back to the island – where death apparently isn’t always the end – as the series heads into its final season. But Harold Perrineau’s not packing his bags for Hawaii just yet. “I can only deny,” original cast member Perrineau told TV Guide Magazine about a possible return engagement as the seemingly deceased Michael Dawson – though a resurrection may be just a phone call away. “Nobody’s said anything to me and I haven’t asked,” said Perrineau. “One of the great things I always thought about Lost is I back up and I let them do the thing that they’re really great at doing. They’re really great and creating drama and creating their show. And this way I don’t have to ask ‘Hey, what’s this? What’s that?’ I don’t ask any questions, I just show up and I let them do what they do. They’re good at it.” That said, if the producers ring him up, Perrineau’s on the first flight to Oahu. “Of course I would show up! Are you kidding me? That’s my people!” He said he wasn’t sure if Michael could return organically back into the mythology, however. “Only if there’s some way that they’re getting back to all of those original characters that we started the journey with, and if that’s so then that makes sense to me. I don’t know other than that how it makes sense.” “But then nothing makes sense on the show, so why am I even saying this?” he laughed. Whatever happens, Perrineau is just as eager as any longtime viewer to find out the answers to the many mysteries Lost has posed over the years. “I still have questions – a ton of questions,” he explained. “I’m curious about how all that’s going to wrap up. There are just tons of things from when we first started that I’m still curious about.”

Who is Josh Holloway?

– I was lucky enough to be a guest at Josh Holloway’s appearance with acting coach Tom Ardavany in Santa Monica, Ca on Tuesday night ( July 28th, 2009).

And what a cool 2 hour event it was.  I was about 25 feet from Josh himself (At one point he did walk by me to use the facilities).  But it hit me more when I got home that I actually was able to see up close my favorite actor and character on Lost.  His entrance was that of man who is proud and more than excited to share his insight with up and coming actors.  He wasn’t like a celebrity who thought he was doing us a favor for being there.  He wasn’t like let’s get this over with.  Josh would have stayed another hour if it was up to him.  He was exceptional.  One of the nicest actors I have ever met.  And yes ladies, he is as sexy in person as you would believe.  but from a guy’s perspective, he’s a mans man, cooler than the other side of the pillow.

 

Josh set the tone and was a joy to hear speak.  He comes off as very thankful for success.  He is very humble.  Before Josh came out, they played the final piece of the “Incident” scene before and after Jack drop the nuke into the swan tunnel.  Josh came out soon after.  His entrance was just that : a presence of stardom.  He took over the room without effort.  He pointed in the crowd to some old friends that he hadn’t seen since his early days of acting class.   Josh talked about his acting appraoch in doing intense  scenes,  what the Lost set is like (laughter, scrabble and farts),  he explained in detail his scene with Elisabeth Mitchell, talked about what to expect if you are a guest star on Lost, lack of rehearsal time, protecting yourself on the set, responsibility of Jack Bender as a director, his new baby, life after Lost, and much much more.

Listen to my podcast as I give my recount the evening and answer the question,  Who is Josh Holloway? :

 I was so eager to talk about Josh in my podcast that I edited some great comments out about actor/coach Tom Ardavany.  After listening to the podcast,  I realized that I totally left out some important stuff about Tom.  Coming tomorrow will be my write up on what I learned. I suggest you attend one of Tom’s actor series specials as you can learn so much about the world of being an actor.  Tom, thank you so much for the opportunity.
