You can let go now. For years I have imagined LOST’s future and its resolutions. I have greatly anticipated “The End”. Some of my ideas were good, some were not. Some of my hopes were justified, others were, frankly, pretty unreasonable. I can guarantee you that my version of the ending would not be as … Read more

The finale begins this week and there seems little point posting a ‘recap’ style summary of what occurred in it and how it links in with other episodes etc… instead I am going to do two separate posts – this one, a preview of the finale and then a post-finale musing on the ending, the … Read more
It thrilled me. It frustrated me. It thrilled me in frustrating me. I love this show – now as much as ever. I understand why some of my friends and fellow fans struggle, but I am a believer and I’ll try and convince anyone who’ll listen just how important and brilliant LOST is – ‘Across … Read more
None of us thought that all the characters would have happy endings. And we certainly didn’t think that they would all survive. But even with those expectations, watching it hurt nonetheless. Saying goodbye to Sayid, Jin & Sun and, in all probability Frank, was painful but essential. It was beautiful, moving and entirely appropriate to … Read more
The producers acknowledged the significance of the Backgammon reference in the season 1 pilot… So ponder this…. In the first few seasons we had several references to Alice and Wonderland…. In “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” the story was meant to symbolize a game of cards, different scenes signifying different cards in a deck…. In “Through … Read more
Wow, the ending of the premier with Flocke taking out Richard was awesome. Richard is obviously panicked about who it is inhabiting the body of John Locke. And when he finally sees Flocke emerge from the statue his fear is apparent. “Hello Richard, it’s good to see you out of those chains” “you” “me!” “I … Read more
The season premier of LOST started us off with a bang and this season is unlikely to slow down. Over the course of two hours LOST fans were treated to tons of answers but in the end were still left wondering “What the heck is going on”? As season 6 fades in from white we … Read more

As we approach Season 6, I thought we should review the many, many, many, questions that Lost has given us that have still not been answered. In a recent interview, when asked what central question Lost must resolve, Damon Lindelof said, “The only question that’s ever mattered to us is
NOTE: In accordance with site policy, this theory is completely spoiler-free.
Back in the second season of our favorite show, we were introduced to a character who would quickly become one of our most beloved. The scraggly-haired Scotsman was responsible for “saving the world” by pushing a button every 108 minutes. Throughout the years, we’ve seen many great Desmond moments, but like many elements of Lost, the true purpose of his character remains shrouded in mystery. Let’s take a little bit of a deeper look into Desmond, and see if we can come up with some good theories as to how he’ll end up fitting into the show’s end-game.
In the spirit of the approaching beginning of the end, I have posted seven (relatively) spoiler-free theories for Season Six along with what I feel are their pros and cons. There are no episode title names or smuggled-spoiler info in these theories, but I do reference Comic Con a tiny bit and have a vague reference to some of the supposed cast members without giving specifics. If this is too spoilery for you, move along.
While we are pulling the podcast together, I thought I would stop procrastinating and post a well overdue theory article. It should be a little taste of what Doc and I have in store for you in the next podcast (which should be really really soon). When we found out that Jacob had an enemy, … Read more
This question seems to be cause for a lot of debate lately, particularly since Terry O’Quinn himself weighed in with his take on the situation. Terry believes that Locke is gone forever, dead is dead. My good friend Erased Slate gave us an artful tour of the writing on the wall with his piece right … Read more
For every question that the season five finale answered, several more were asked. Fortunately (or not,) we have several months to ponder them – and we can begin here!
It struck me after multiple viewings of the Lost Season 5 finale that (unlike the off-island visits to Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke, Hurley, Sayid, Sun and Jin) when Jacob visits Ilana in the hospital, he is wearing black gloves and does not touch her. My theory is that Ilana is a character intended to represent … Read more
“It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.” Jacob Super-Duper Brief Recap Season 5 Finale- “The Incident” Parts One and Two: For the Season 5 finale, the LOST cast rallied and decided to act out the Bible in roughly 84 minutes. Technically, they did it in about 72 minutes, when accounting … Read more
The lead-in to the season five finale answered few questions but left many, many doors open for our island friends, both past and present. What might happen and just what could it all mean? Speculation is more-or-less futile, but a lot of fun!
There’s an old truism among Londoners that I always used to hear exploited by comedians when I lived there that the way their buses ran, you’d wait 45 minutes, and then three would come at once. I’m terribly sorry about doing my very best imitation of a batch of errant double-deckers, but sometimes life gets … Read more
