If I'm reading this right and I think I am...I agree
USA Today has a "Test Your LOST IQ" quiz today. Check it out. I got 12/15. I'm sure most of you will do better.
14/15 - missed the book question
I think the key is that what the Losties did in '77 effects not only them, but a lot of things. It's the differences we see in the flashsideways on the plane. People are different. Some are different in a major way (Charlie), some seem minor (Jack's fear of flying).
I agree that at some point, they are going to realize there are two different realities happening and that only one can exist ("there can be only one"). It will be up to the Losties to figure out which reality "wins".
Don't know if it will happen, but I think it will be totally cool if at the last scene of the series is Jack and Locke on a beach with Sawyer looking at other and Locke saying "you know how much I want to kill you?"...
The first scene of the first season started with a close-up of Jack's eye opening.
The last scene of the finale could be Jack's eye closing. RIP.
Some guesses on what's different in the alternate reality:
-Sun doesn't speak English; Jin and Sun are not married; Jin does speak English.
-Locked became paralyzed in a different way
-Sawyer didn't kill anyone in Australia
-The numbers Hurley won the lottery with are different
-Rose doesn't have cancer
-Sayid never worked for the CIA
14/15 but I think they messed up the Unstuck question.
No, that was right.
The one about who saw the smoke monster first was a bit ambiguous...do they mean in the show or chronologically? There were two possible correct answers depending on how you interpret the question.
I remember a scene where Ben and Ethan took the baby, but I don't remember the smoke monster being there. Was it? (I bow to the 15's--I only got 10 )
The strange thing about the answer to that question was that it mentioned how Danielle saw the column of smoke when Alex was born. But I never equated the column of smoke that she saw, which appeared to come from a fire, to the Smoke Monster. Did other people think she was referring to Smoky when she made that comment?
I agree with you. The column of smoke she saw was smoke from a fire, not Smoky.
On the other hand, she did see Smokey (at the wall to the Temple), right?
Ok, right. Thanks.
Of course. I'm not saying Danielle never saw Smoky. I'm just saying that the little snippet they gave in that quiz to justify the correct answer was actually incorrect.
I just watched the season premier and read the entire thread and my head is spinning. The one thing I didn't see addressed (which probably means I'm the only one who can't wrap my head around it) is... the temple... is in the current timeline, right? 2007? Which means it was there the entire time through the first five seasons? And no one ever saw it or was kidnapped into it or... anything else? That seems like quite a big place for no one to have accidentally run across...
A few seasons ago Ben sent half his people there and we heard about it. We saw Daniel's team go up to the wall of it and Montand was sucked in. They said the wall was big enough to keep people away. It does seem like a big island.
Okay. That stuff sounds familiar. I guess I was thinking the temple was from forever ago, because I thought it was in ruins when Losties saw it from the outside - but even if that was just for show, the actual temple was so huge I'm not sure how a small set of ruins could hide the whole compound.
The only thing we ever saw before was the wall. The section of wall we saw wasn't in ruins, although it was clearly very old. There was also the opening that led down to where the French team was led by Smokey.
But the temple itself is apparently a mile or so in from the wall (I'm not sure where I got that, but it's in my brain from somewhere).
