LOST – LA X – Thoughts and Theories, Part 1

 (You must be a member to view the LOST threads!)

 It’s over. The Season 6 Premiere of LOST. LA X, parts 1 & 2.

Did you see that? 


Something’s missing. There’s a space between “LA” and “X”. 

Let’s call it a Variable… 

The first hour clearly established two (for lack of a better word) realities. 

The island 2007 Post-Jughead and 2004 Post-Jughead. 

Both with subtle, yet significant, differences between what we saw in the Pilot episode of LOST and what we saw in Seasons 1 through 5 of LOST. 

Here’s some of my thoughts and theories: 

In 2004, Rose and Bernard are happy. Content. As if their trip to Uluru in Australia cured Rose’s cancer. 

Boone, returning without Shannon, unable to convince her to leave an unhealthy relationship but happy to have finally left the unhealthy relationship he had with her. 

Hurley is lucky. He never has bad luck. His Mr. Clucks franchise is successful. Kate is still in custody. Except not for what we thought. Remember the videos from ComicCon last summer? 

Jin and Sun haven’t changed much. Except Sun didn’t have an affair. Or, if she did, the guy didn’t teach her English. 

John Locke claims to have gone on a Walkabout. 

Jack is no longer a Man of Science…he’s not a Man of Faith, either. He is, however, confident…and relieved. 

Who, or what, is The Candidate? 

In the Season 5 finale, The Incident, Bram asks if Frank is “A Candidate”. 

Theory: There are six candidates. Each with a separate purpose, represented by a quality. Each with a Destiny

Jack – The Healer. 

Kate – Passion. 

Sawyer – Revenge. 

Hurley – Integrity. 

Sayid – The redeemed warrior. 

Sun and Jin – Love. 

The same people Jacob made sure to “touch” in his visits to them during various, formulative stages of their lives. Why? 

Jacob knew the Man in Black would someday find a loophole allowing his death. So he chose these people – one of whom, through their actions on and off the island – would be A Candidate. To fight the war between Good and Evil. 

One Candidate, would die, the first step allowing Jacob a body to take over to fight the War. 


In later episodes, I’m sure we’ll discover the role of each Candidate. 

But let’s go back to The Variable. What is the variable? The variable is that point – in time – where two separate incidents, on the island in 2007 and off the island in 2004, merge the two timelines into one. Represented by LA X

One of those is the successful spinal surgery Jack performs on Locke in 2004. 

The second is Jacob, as Sayid, once again banishing the Man in Black. 

In the foot of Tawaret deep, deep down on the ocean floor. Surrounded by a circle of volcanic ash – the remains of the island.





Here’s another fearless prediction: The final scene of LOST? The same scene we saw last night…with one, important change: Oceanic Flight 815 landing at LAX.


To Be Continued…

Was LOST Stolen?

A TV producer by the name of Anthony Barrett has filed a lawsuit against ABC and Touchstone Television, alleging they stole the concept of LOST from him.

Barrett, who was previously a producer on Baretta and Babes in Toylandlost tmz claims he wrote a 130 page script and submitted it to ABC in 1977 (hmmm…did he travel through time with LaFleur [Sawyer] and the gang?), and again several years later.

In papers submitted to the court, Barrett lists the similarities between the two programs.

I’m always wary of things like this when they occur. Although Barrett states he filed the lawsuit in 2004 and it was thrown out for a “techniciality”, why are we just now hearing about it?

Why wasn’t he raising hell when word of LOST went out in 2003? Considering the billions of dollars the shows made, I find his claim about as feasible as polar bears on a tropical island.


Meanwhile, word on the streets is that Barrett is being sued by Sherwood Schwartz for ripping off Gilligan’s Island.
