So you watched the season premiere, eh? This is how I feel watching Lost most of the time, but especially since my P.I.C. Crozz left our sunny climes for the Bay Area:
So what are my questions/thoughts after last night’s ep:
What are Jacob and Smoke Monster Man’s origins? Clearly they are God-like in some way, or at least in relation to the Island. (And BTW, how epic was Ben’s confrontation with Jacob at the end of last season? Man meets God and kills him because he feels neglected? Tragic! Awesome!)
Why is the Island sunk now? Did the bomb submerge it? Dharma shark swimming around. Love that guy.
Clearly we’re now dealing with two competing realities (cue Doc Brown and his chalkboard explanation from Back to the Future II). Anyone notice any changes in the altered reality? I notice that Shannon didn’t get on the plane with Boone. Hurley seems to have good luck (did the numbers not get relayed to him? Was he destined to win the lottery anyway?). Jack only gets a single bottle of booze from the stewardess (he’s not as sexy?). Desmond is on the plane. What else?
How are they going to reconcile the two realities? Here’s an idea: These aren’t competing realities. What if everyone on board the successful Flight 815 actually ends up back on the island near that crater and this “alternate” reality is just a flashback? Just throwing that out there. Although they all seem to refer to the events immediately surround Juliet and the nuke, so I guess this isn’t likely.
I either forgot or never caught on that Locke wasn’t Locke at all last season. Anyone else bummed? I liked that character. Will the “real” Locke resurrect?
Where the F did Jack’s dad’s body/casket get to? Are these realities intertwined and able to cross over with each other?
Smoke Monster is the anti-Jacob. Kind of a let-down really. I definitely prefer the Dharma science stuff to the Lost spiritualism.
Who are the people at the Temple? OG Others? Black Rock survivors?
I had a Jacuzzi once. It could not revive dead people.
Is Jake starting to have a little faith? Ultimately I hope he’s the hero of the show.
Will the people in the new reality start to suffer from split personalities and visions of their other life? Will they be drawn to the island? Where’s Daniel Faraday when you need him?
Everyone on the island that WASN’T from the future, were they nuked? Richard, Ben, Widmore, Eloise, etc.
That’s all I got for now. Let’s discuss in the comments section. What questions did you have after the episode. More importantly, what answers can you give me RE: the above?
