LOST Season 6: What Kate Does

Warning: Spoiler Alert !

Review:

This was a Kate-centric episode and unfortunately what Kate did was the least interesting part of the whole episode. Overall it was OK, not too great. Here are some of the highlights from the episode –

1.  Sayid was NOT reincarnated as Jacob, as popularly theorized by most. My gut feeling was right about that (As proof – read my previous post). Instead he was “infected”. Now that’s the part I liked ! Here’s more on the Infection –

  • The Infection was first introduced to us in Season 1 by Danielle Rousseau, when she suspected that Sayid was infected. She warns him to watch out for the “sickness” and look out for people who start behaving differently. Then we didn’t really hear about the sickness for a long time, until Season 5, when we were shown the sickness that infected Danielle’s crew. All the infected people had gone into the hole outside the temple prior to getting infected – all except Rousseau. Apparently, the MIB or the Smoke Monster had “possessed” them and changed them to somewhat evil. Else why would Rousseau’s boyfriend / husband try to kill her ?
  • Dogan told Jack that Claire had been infected. Now that was super interesting ! That actually proved another one of my theories – that Claire died in Season 4 in the bomb blast by Keamy’s men. By the time Sawyer got to her, her body had been “claimed” by the MIB – or she had been infected in other words. The same thing happened to Christian Shephard. Jack couldn’t find his body – and that would be explained if his body too had been claimed. Then, he came to get Claire in the same episode of Season 4 and she left with him. The duo then meet Locke in Jacob’s cabin, and she definitely seemed different. Recall her face when Locke asks – “How do I save the island?” – she looked a little evil. Maybe you wouldn’t call it evil, but she looked like she knew something was going on, something not good.

So Sayid is really dead. Claire is really dead. Christian is really dead. Their bodies have been possessed by MIB. Don’t ask me why. I have no clue.

2.  Kate and Claire are together again in context of Aaron. Kate was the one who delivered Aaron and ended up being the one who raised him in the island time-line. Now, in the no-crash time-line, we see Kate and Claire together again…along with Ethan ! That was a nice surprise. Ethan, too was involved with Claire’s baby in the island time-line. Now he was Claire’s doctor in the other time-line. This is another group of people interacting the same way they did on the island. Destiny, anyone ?

3.  The most boring part was when Kate ran away from the Others.2 to go to Sawyer. Lately, I like her character less and less. Why can’t she choose between Jack and Sawyer once and for all ? Moreover, it seemed like Sawyer wanted nothing to do with her anyway. After a teary conversation with Sawyer about Juliet, she packed her bags to go back, presumably to the Temple.

4.  Somewhere in the middle we were given hints about some other person (other than the Others and Rousseau) laying the traps in the jungle. And in the end, we were introduced to a new rifle-wielding and infected Claire. Awesome ! But remember – she is dead (according to me). Lets see how that theory pans out.

I will re-watch the episode to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Next week promises to be a much more interesting and eventful episode. Looking forward…

Lost – Theory from Season 4

Season 4 – “The Shape of Things to Come”

Just a random thing I noticed yesterday while re-watching Season 4 Episode titled “The Shape of Things to Come”, which btw was a very eventful episode. Towards the end of the episode, in one of  Ben’s  flash-forwards he visits Charles Widmore. The conversation between them was  very interesting. At one point their conversation goes like this –

Charles – ” Are you here to kill me?”

Ben – “You know very well I can’t do that.”

→ Sounds familiar? For some reason (a rule?) Ben and Charles can’t kill each other, in much the same way that anti-Jacob cannot kill Jacob and needs a loophole in order to do so. I’m guessing that the same “rules” apply to both couples. What are these rules?

According to Ben, Charles changed the “rules” when he killed his daughter. So what they can kill all the other people on the island, but not each other and their families? That doesn’t sound right.

If Ben and Charles are followers of either Jacob or anti-Jacob, I cannot decide which one of them follows whom? One of them is the good side and the other is the bad one, but which is which? Ben has said on a number of occasions – “We are the good guys”. But are they? Since in the same conversation between Ben and Charles, Charles says – “Everything you have, you have taken from me” and “You very well know that island is mine”. Moreover, in the Season 5 finale, Ilana (who I guess is working for Charles) is pro-Jacob. So is Charles on Jacob’s side? Which would mean that Ben is anti-Jacob. Now I also believe that the smoke monster is working for anti-Jacob. And Ben calls the smoke monster to kill the people from Widmore’s boat (the guys who killed Alex) – which also proves that Ben is on anti-Jacob’s side. Does that make sense?

But I really want to know what the “rules” are and who made them in the first place?

I also think that Claire might have died when her house exploded. To prove this –

  1. How can anyone survive a blast that transforms a house into rubble?
  2. She was feeling “woozy” for quite a long time after the blast and was apparently “seeing things” that were not there.

This was my biggest clue – when she admitted to seeing things. Because right afterwards she disappears. So maybe she simply died in the blast and what everyone was seeing as Claire was an apparition or something just like everyone saw John Locke after he died. Make sense ?
