Hey guys, Tapdawg here!
So I’ve been stuck on one comment from Damon and Carlton at Comic Con. They said that for this season both flashbacks and flash-forwards would be used for story telling purposes but they also alluded to a third time of story-telling device which we haven’t seen really. They gave us an example of the Jin-Sun centric episode in season 4 in which Jin’s portion is a flashback and Sun’s portion is a flash-forward. This got me thinking about what exactly the new format will look like… and then it hit me!
I believe the new story telling device will be episodes with no flashes at all… and the audience will have to figure out when and where in the grand story scheme the story is taking place. Similar to how we were unsure what was going on with Jack in the season 3 finale until the end when we found out it was the future… but in these episodes we might not find out the timing of the episodes until the season finale or when the DVD comes out.
What do you guys think? Agree, disagree, have an idea of your own? Post your thoughts in the comments below and if I like you’re idea I might just ask you to write and article for us on your theory!
