Your web filter won't let you on my site, but they'll let you on XKCD? That's weird.

Anyway, the strip is too wide to post in it's usual format, so I've cut up part one for your enjoyment. But if you want to solve the mystery of what's in the box, you'll have to find a way around the filter.

How did Miles recognize Claire? Didn't she go AWOL well before Miles ever came to the Island?

No I'm pretty sure they met. She was definitely with the group that went to the radio tower to call the boat, and that was at the end of one of the seasons. Claire didn't go loopy and run off until near the end of the next one, and Miles was definitely among them by then.

Who was that loan shark cooking eggs? I'm sure I've seen his face and heard his voice before, and judging by the dramatic chords when he showed up, I know I'm supposed to recognise him from somewhere. Was he one of Ben's Others?

But he still radiates douchebag-waves.

Do you guys have any theories as to what the purpose of showing the off-island alt timeline is? In some (most?all?) they show that the people are not that different in the two timelines - Sayid didn't want to do the thing, but finally did it; Locke didn't want to be told what he can and can't do; etc. Their actions are similar but in different contexts.
However, there are some interesting differences - in the alt timeline, Jack has his appendix removed at age 7-8, while in normal timeline Juliet removes it somewhere in season 3 or 4. This means that there is something else that caused the divergence of the timelines, and not the plane crash.
Man, the alt. timeline will have some major mindscrew at the end. I can feel it!

At the end of this article:
http://io9.com/5484373/spoiler-onslaugh ... 3-and-lost
there are some interesting spoilers. (More like teasers, actually, but still interesting.)

Well if the island is gone then Jacob has no reason to interfere with their lives, that's my theory as to why their alt lives are so different anyway.

Yup, that's what I was thinking too.
It seems that the characters are all having slight glitch in the matrix moments in the alt universe. Like when Jack couldn't remember having his appendix out as a kid, and how some of them look a bit confused when they meet for the first time, as if they've seen the other person before but can't remember where.

I was also wondering if the alt universe is a trick by Jacob or the Locke monster to show what their lives would have been like without Jacob/the island. So I suspect all their lives in the alt universe will all go to crap, coinciding with the Big Final Battle on the island.

I'm about to watch this week's.

Before I watched Locke's recent episode, I just happened to have watched season 1 episode 4 after doing a rerun of season 1.

Guys, watch the corresponding season 1 episodes before the new season 6 ones. They appear to be connected.

They were paralleling the same character-focus in the flashbacks/flashsideways, up until the most recent episode. They probably wouldn't have been able to for ep 7, anyway, since that character died in the main timeline. Granted, that might not necessarily stop the writers from trying.

According to some spoilers/teasers from io9.com, episodes 9 will be Richard-centric episode.

Definitely not the best line, but maybe the best-delivered line in LOST came from last night's episode:
Spoiler:
Miles: Uh oh!
(Right before the title animation, in reference to Ilana saying Jacob was the closest thing she'd had to a father, after it was revealed that Ben had killed him.)

Personally, I thought it was hilarious. Your mileage may vary.

Spoiler:
To be fair, he said he'd already guessed it. I just want some explanation as to how the Man in Black became a smoke monster and such. I feel like they'll just gloss over it and say "he turned evil" though. That'd be upsetting.

I thought it was a really telling contrast to the end of the previous episode, which had a different group of coming together, just with less hugging. Which leads me to think that what I was hoping for will not come to pass.

I was theorizing, and do you remember the shark-like submarine that charles used? The island is said to travel in time and never physically be there. What if Charles Widmore who knew about it in both time lines. What if he was traveling to the main time line in the submarine because he knew the science behind it. This could explain the converging of universes. If they are going to converge.

I don't think they're going to converge anymore. The flash-sidewayses have all been a "what if" side-story for the main characters, and none have had any connection to the "main" storyline. If there was going to be a link they'd have had to start making motions towards a convergence already.

The characters are interconnecting again and the situations they had on the island and the choices, they're sort of happening back civilization. I think the similarities of it are them converging. Like take claire, if the island did not exist, the physic would of never told claire what was what and she would of never went on the plane. She did go on the plane. Bad example actually.

The MIB ends up being right (or perhaps, more right than wrong), and the fight between him and Jacob will end up akin to Vorlons vs. Shadows, where neither side neatly fits into good or evil pidgin holes. Hurley will end up taking leadership of the Island, just because that would be the biggest mind-frack the show could give us.

I think the biggest mind-shit would be saywer taking control of the island.


We can assume Sawyer is out and Sayid is out.




So we have the Kwons, Hurly, and Jack. I think Jack is too unstable so he won't be it. Which would leave Kwon and Hurly. I am going out on a limb and say Kwons are together on the candidacy. Richard said "The greatest gift is being touched by Jacob." Jin and Sun were both touched by Jacob at the same time.

The episode where Evil Locke takes Sawyer to Jacob's cave and shows him the ceiling has a line of dialogue something along the lines of "only one of the Kwon's is a candidate." Locke didn't know which one.

I could see it being Hurley. I have an essay around here somewhere that had a really good explanation for why Hurley could always have been considered the real leader on the island, so I could definitely see them going that route with it.

I wonder how much nerd rage would ensue if Lost turned out to be one epic shaggy dog story? It's just Hurley's imagination, and he's been in the asylum the whole time. Seriously, the Nate The Snake joke would have nothing on Lost if they did that.
