HOWEVER... just in case you didn't notice:
.....that stuffed whale in the bag that Claire had with her, the one that Kate stole thinking there would be clothes she could change into....
It's the EXACT SAME WHALE that Kate had given Aaron....
wacky eh? :)
Next bit of randomness... 'cause you know everything that seems like a clue is usually just a mindfuck... but just for the sake of pointing it out... You know the weird Japanese guy, Dogen? Remember that baseball he was playing with...
there are .... (*insert dramatic music that means something super duper awesome is about to happen*).... 108 double stitches on a baseball!... (ok, go ahead & insert your own waa waa waaaaa ''let down'' sound. )
Seriously though... there is bound to be something to it. The damn camera focused on it REPEATEDLY. Maybe it was just a "hey Jack, ol' freaky Dogen is about to start throwing curve balls at ya"..... OR, maybe... just maybe... LOST is all about an anciect game of baseball, and Jacob & The Man in Black are oppposing team Captains trying to put together an amazing all star team... the numbers ( 4 8 15 16 23 42) are just the jersey numbers of the key players... 4= 1st base, 8= 2nd base, 15= 3rd base, 16=catcher/homeplate, 23= pitcher, 42=outfield.... yeah, that makes total sense! There you go, the mystery of LOST is SOLVED!! You can thank me later.
Clearly I'm kidding....well... I was serious about the whole baseball Dogen was playing with. If there hasn't been massive amounts of speculation about that thing I'd be shocked. One could even draw a correlation between the baseball and that "test" Creepy Richard gave young Locke... there was a baseball glove involved.... (look to the lower right of the picture...).... I'm tellin' you, there is a damn clue in there! (And what do you wanna bet that vial contains the ash we've seen sprinkled about? We already know how the pocket watch comes into play.)
Lets just skip ahead to ol'Claire shall we? ... WTF? She's all feral now... heehee... she could be a Garbage Pail Kid! "Feral Claire"... It's like she sorta took over Roussou's crazy place. Which then makes one wonder... is THAT why Roussou was all bonkers? "The Sickness"? Roussou killed off all her buddies when she was young 'cause she thought THEY were sick, when really it was her? Maybe?
All I know is Claire looks like doo doo...
Guess that's what happens when you kinda die when a bomb explodes, but no one realizes it... and you get to become a body host to the likes of Jacob or the Man in Black.... 'cause I don't know about you... but I don't think she's totally dead....
Remember this scene?... and then remember how Miles gave that really weird look (same weird look he was giving Sayid after the whole dunking in the pool of awesome) ...and continued to... right up until she was in the jungle and abandoned Aaron to go hang with her Dad (you know, zombie Christian)
I really don't think she's totally dead. At least I'm not convinced of it yet.
There is that whole thing that no one really talks about in regards to making sure bodies are totally buried. I think if a body isn't buried... there's a chance they'll "come back." AND maybe if they get possessed (for lack of better word) before they are totally dead... when/if they come back... THEN they have that "sickness"??? Maybe?
Anyway.. it's worth noting that the creepy as fuck Ethan is back... We knew him as Ethan Rom, but came to find out he was the son of Horace & Amy Goodspeed... either way, still totally creepy.
(seriously, ewwweeee!!! blech!!)
AND... anyone else catch the date on this print out?....
This was the give away....
and then there was the throw away........
.......and since I'm talking about rings... you all should have noticed by now that Desmond was wearing a wedding ring on the plane with Jack in Episode 1.
I've got 1001 theories and ideas running through my head... and more than half of them (shockingly!) are not totally far fetched... well... not in regards to LOST at least.... but to try to get them out is damn near impossible. I'm gonna try, but not tonight. :) Episode #4 is here in 2 days.... and I, personally, can barely wait!
Before I go... just a few thoughts to think about:
Desmond apparently has some "abilities" that can supersede the time-space continuum. Soooo was he really on that plane?
Dogen had stated that it was very important that Sawyer return to the temple unharmed.... clearly there is a plan for our Losties.
Jack's tattoo... remember what it translates to?...."He walks amongst us, but he is not one of us."
I think that the whole thing about people having those deja vu moments... "do i know you" kinda things... or at least feel a sort of draw to certain people... it only happens in the new 2004 time line once they have interacted in the old 2004 timeline.
Like how Jack thought he knew Desmond on the plane... he HAD met Desmond before, at least in the old2004, when jogging at that stadium. (Now would be a good time to recall Des's line "See you in another life, brother.") So... when Kate bumped into Jack on the plane and stole his pen... he was just a dude with a pen she stole in new2004... but by the time she was in the cab... she was vaguely aware of him at least in old2004.
Same with Claire... as time progressed... you get what I'm saying right?
Like that time that Faraday went to go see Desmond when he was in the hatch and told him he had to go find his mother... then suuddenly Desmond wakes up in bed with Penny and is all "I gotta go do shit, peace out!" (ok, I paraphrased...)......
Ok.. really done... for now.
Have anything to add? PLEASE DO!!!
