LOST Theories - DarkUFO


Lots of people think we’re watching the epilogue world in the flash sideways to wrap the show up into a neat little ball and make us come away feeling all nice and cozy.

Free your mind.

Little Diddy About Jack and David

Last episode—Jack’s son David. Was it just my imagination or was there a fairy-talish quality to this? “Mom, when did I get my appendix out?” Who would forget this? Jack refusing a drink. Dogen as his spirit guide saying exactly the right thing at exactly the right time. Jack says exactly everything he wished his dad would have said to him? Lots of black and white … the primary colors in our dreams. Black and white pictures of Jack and David making goofy faces. Question…if their relationship has been so strained, when did they take these happy pictures together? As Jack told Hurley, his fear is that he would make a horrible father (like he had started to be to Aaron). Is David his idealistic vision of what he wishes he could be? “I love you, son.” “I love you too, dad.” Aw, shucks.

Locke - No Al Bundy Here

The same thing went for Locke’s episode. When Locke is down, people pick him up. “You’re fired!” But here comes happy Hurley to save the day. “You just yelled at me for parking to close, but I’m going to offer you any job you want?” Rose says exactly the right thing. He lands the perfect Locke job (and how could this happen with absolutely no teaching background?) Helen accepts him for what he is. Locke and his dad have a great relationship. From facedown in the grass and fired to the perfect fiancé and a great job. Aw, shucks.

Two Women and a Baby (Orca)

Kate and Claire. More black and white in the Orca. Claire is pregnant and alone; she even gets in the middle of Kate’s great escape. Kate is on the run (man she was magically quick at slipping those cuffs). She (impossibly) evades the po-po. Yeah, because since 911 airport security is pretty lax. Even the mechanic (and we know nobody trusts a mechanic) is willing to aid a felon. Then Kate looks at herself in the mirror and returns to Claire. Ethan is the good doc now who delivers a healthy baby with Claire and Kate holding hands. And when the cops show, there’s no need to check that back room. Kate magically evades again. What a transformation—Kate is busting heads and carjacking, but by the end of the episode she is saving babies. Claire goes from pregnant, abandoned, and carjacked, to delivering a healthy baby boy. “No hard feelings about the carjacking with you pregnant, right?” “None at all. In fact, take my credit cards and buy yourself something nice. For s! ome reason, I think you’d look good in khakis. ” Aw, shucks.

The point is that there the characters keeping morphing from the reality of who they were into their own idealistic version of who they wish they could be. Isn’t that dreamlike?

Isn’t that UNREAL?

Don’t buy it. There is no spoon.
