Lost - Lighthouse

Ever since the Lost panel at Comic Con, I suspected we'd see Shannon's inhaler again... Damon and Carlton love to throw bones to the fans like that ;)

There was lots of cool stuff in this episode and I have many random thoughts.

Claire is the new Rousseau. Both had babies on the island that got taken. Kate took Aaron because Claire had disappeared and I'm now wondering if there was some similar set of circumstances that caused Ben to end up raising Alex. It's interesting that Claire seems to have gone crazy even though she was the only one of the Losties who was ever inoculated. Oh and it's interesting that not!Locke has apparently been Claire's friend for a while

Hurley's comment about the Adam and Eve bones maybe being one of them from an alternate timeline was something I'd wondered about for a long time. I think there was a lot of speculation way back in season 1 that it was Jack and Kate.

Jacob must not be in Sayid since Jacob is now appearing (like dead people tend to) to Hurley. So then who/what is in Sayid? Or maybe Sayid is just Sayid and the temple people are nuts. I wonder if the bad person Jacob said was heading to the temple was not!Locke... or Claire?

New number! We've seen 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. But now the number 51 is in the mix, corresponding to Kate. The hieroglyphics on the upper wall of the lighthouse (seen behind Jack) were the same as the heiroglyphics that appeared when the numbers would flip in the Swan hatch after pressing the button. The places Jack saw in the lighthouse mirror seemed to be places where Jacob had visited/touched people: the building where Sun and Jin had their wedding, the church where young Sawyer wrote the letter after the funeral. But then there was Jack's childhood house, which doesn't fit (didn't Jacob touch Jack at the hospital at a vending machine?). So what's up with that?

And what's up with alternate universe Jack not remembering having his appendix out? I'm suspicious of the non-reveal of Jack's ex-wife. I would expect it to be the same woman who was his ex-wife in the original back-story, but the fact that they haven't showed her leads me to believe it's going to be someone else (I'm thinking maybe Juliet?). Oh and the fact that Jack's life turned out so very different means the island vanishing in 1977 had a significant impact on his life. I would assume that's because Christian Shepherd's life would've turned out much different, which would've affected Jack's life.

I thought it was odd that Kate was going to look for Claire, but Jack (who knows Claire is his half-sister now) didn't really seem to care. It dawned on me that he really should've been wanting to find Claire ever since he got back to the island.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Ha, cute.

I don't think so. Didn't we see what happened? He totally stole her kid, if I recall.

Wait, what now?? I didn't catch that.

(I'm thinking maybe Juliet?)
That was my guess too.

Did we? I'm slipping... forgetting my Lost details!

It was the numbers on the lighthouse dial thingy. There were names around it next to various numbers and it appeared that the only names not crossed out were the Losties (just like on the cave ceiling). But this time we also saw the name Austin next to the number 51 (not crossed out). So I guess that makes her a "candidate" as well and also makes it unclear as to whether "Kwon" refers to Sun or Jin. When we saw names on the cave ceiling, they were all male names, so I assumed Kwon referred to Jin. But if Kate is a candidate, then Sun could be too. Sun wasn't poofed off the plane when they returned to the island, though, so maybe she's not a candidate?

Hmmm. I don't like a new Number that hasn't been hilariously and ridiculously omnipresent throughout the series already.

Yeah, I wasn't so happy about new temple dude being introduced in the final season either. How could they possibly have needed new characters to finish this story? You know what, though? I don't even care. I'm having fun with it :)

Okay, so the smoke monster has been discovered to be the opposite guy of Jacob from the beach. I'm thinking both Jacob and the black shirt guy have smoke monster abilities. I've been trying to come up with which smokie seen in which episodes are black shirt guy or Jacob. I'm almost certain that Jacob prefers to take the physical appearance of someone a person knows he appears to. For instance, Smokey-Jacob was likely Christian in the first season but not Christian in the cabin with Claire in..uh, season 3.

I wonder which it was that appeared to Kate as the horse, to Echo as his brother, Shannon, and so on and so on.

Also, I'm pretty sure Ben stole Alex from Rousseau's tent in the 4th or 3rd season in a flash back. Young-Ethan was with him when he did it.

I'm still confused on this sickness business. Does having the sickness foretell your eventual 'recruitment' to black shirt guy/not!locke? Sawyer, I don't think, is sick. I think he's feeling out this not!locke guy and will eventually pull through as the BDH --but! what else...is Ben sick?

Ugh, this comment has gone too long with my Lost ramblings

Yeah spectralbovine pointed that out too. I'm ashamed that I forgot about that *hangsheadinshame*

Interesting. I hadn't considered dual smokies! Maybe that could explain why smokie let some live, like Locke, Kate and Juliet, while killing others... different smokies. I'm not sure if that works with what we've learned about the ash, though. I just hope everything makes sense by the time we get to the end of this season :P
