Course correction ahead

Lost Theories | By Walter L. Newton
Course correction ahead

“The universe, unfortunately, has a way of course correcting.” Those words uttered by Mrs. Hawking in the episode “Flashes Before Your Eyes” to Desmond, may be the key to the events we now see unfolding in the Season 4 finale.   Is the “universe” reconfiguring the major players who are associated with The Island? And  … Read more

Solaris…Hidden “Lost” Influence?

Lost Theories | By SonyaLynn
Solaris…Hidden “Lost” Influence?

Lost is a show that tends to wear its influences on its sleeve. It gives its shout-outs using character names (John Locke, CS Lewis, etc.), episode names (Through the Looking Glass, The Shape of Things to Come, etc.), books that are seen being read or on bookshelves (Valis, Our Mutual Friend, etc.), quotations (Ben quotes  … Read more

Lost Theory – Veiled Prophecy

This is a follow-up from a previous post back after ‘Cabin Fever:’ http://www.docarzt.com/lost-recaps/lost-411-prophets-prodigies-an.php   Others have raised a great deal questions about the paternity of both Locke and Ben.  We know that the producers like to obscure certain truths in the show.  There is alot of story left, and some reveals need to wait.  However, if  … Read more

Looking at the Little Things — 4.11 “Cabin Fever”

Lost Theories | By SonyaLynn
Looking at the Little Things — 4.11 “Cabin Fever”

Another week, another mind-melting episode. And, just when you thought it was safe to go back into flashback-land, too. Have I mentioned that I love this show? Horace in Locke’s dream! Claire with Christian in the cabin! Alpert and Abaddon try to recruit Locke in the past, going all the way back to his “miraculous”  … Read more

Michael gets his redemption

Lost Theories | By Walter L. Newton
Michael gets his redemption

Just a “drive by” posting, short and sweet. The 3 hour season closer is coming up and I think one of our plot arcs will be solved. Michael is going to get his chance at redemption for killing Libby and Ana. “Not yet” will become “NOW” and he will get his opportunity to blow up the freighter.  … Read more

Where does Matthew Abaddon’s Allegiance Lie?

Lost Theories | By Walter L. Newton
Where does Matthew Abaddon’s Allegiance Lie?

Who does Matthew Abaddon work for? Who’s side is he on? Just like Ben and Widmore, once again we have a character who is probably not as black and white as he appears (no pun intended).   He is evidently not who he portrays himself to be. In the Santa Rosa Mental Health Institute, he  … Read more

Who’s your daddy?

Lost Theories | By Cat
Who’s your daddy?

We all know that “Lost” has done its fair share of covering issues with family; siblings not knowing their siblings, mothers who would rather love an abusive husband than their own daughter and of course, father problems. These daddy issues outnumber the other family problems by a larger margin; to the point where they even  … Read more

All together now… let’s move The Island

Lost Theories | By Walter L. Newton
All together now… let’s move The Island

We know the LOST writer’s propensity for literary and historical references, I quickly scanned my brain for anything I remember reading about relocatable islands, cities or societies. And then with a little help from Wiki, here’s what I came up with.   1) Laputa (the book Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift) is a fictional flying  … Read more

…and Miles, why are you here?

Lost Theories | By Walter L. Newton
…and Miles, why are you here?

Why was our flippant little ghostbuster selected for this mission to the Island? Maybe Jacob’s cabin needed a little housekeeping performed with that ethereal lookin dustbuster. Or perhaps Miles was just trying to collect a bill from Ben.   Nah… I don’t think so. I know it’s going to sound hackneyed, but he sees dead people.  … Read more

Ding Dong which is dead?

Lost Theories | By Walter L. Newton
Ding Dong which is dead?

It was nice to see Christian walking around and looking so… well… undead. And this got me to thinking. Why did the writers bring him back into the story at this point? I won’t give anything away here, but if you watched the promo for “Cabin Fever,” it seemed to indicate that we are going  … Read more

Lost Theories – The Rules of the Game

Lost Theories – The Rules of the Game

What I am presenting here is merely a theory on the rules.  This is only speculation.  Maybe we can come up with a more complete list rules as we theorize about this together.    What have we seen so far…   An Other has never killed anyone directly that was on ‘the List.’  ‘An Other’  … Read more

Lost Theories – Speculating the Frozen Donkey Wheel

Lost Theories – Speculating the Frozen Donkey Wheel

In the enormous, indepth, and astoundingly informative Doc Jensen on-set expose at Entertainment Weekly (which you must read NOW!), Damon Lindelof gives his strongest, and strangest, clues yet on the “Frozen Donkey Wheel” twist, confirming that it is – as I asked Darlton a few months back – a change that will impact the way  … Read more
