The first four minutes of the last season of Lost
Lost finale: 10 lingering questions, answered (sorta)!
Who was that guy on the beach? Did the bomb go off? What’s in store for season six?
Last night’s season-five finale of Lost answered many questions in typical Lost fashion–by bringing up more questions at the same time. We take a look at some of the lingering mysteries and do our best to make sense of it all.
1. Who is Jacob’s nemesis?
What a great intro to the show–two men on a beach looking at what appears to be the S.S. Black Rock coming to their island. Our attention is too concerned with the “it’s Jacob!” bombshell to realize the big mystery here: who is the other dude? All we know is he wants Jacob dead, and he can assume the identities of the dead on the island. Some theorize he’s the Smoke Monster, but I’m not so sure. I still think Smokey is a security system, as previously revealed.
Looking at Lost through Bible-colored glasses, we’re inclined to think Jacob’s nemesis is actually his brother, as dictated by the tale of Jacob, Esau, and their mother Rebekah. We’ll refer to him as “Esau” until proven wrong. Other theories on the two include a God-Satan relationship, Jesus-not-Jesus opposites, and your basic good-versus-evil dynamic. But that almost seems too simple for Lost. (more…)
I’m a bit speechless after watching the season finale of Lost last night. I just hate when the writers instead of answering some questions they simply give you more questions to be answered and let you imagining lots of things. Now we have to wait for 9 months until season 6 starts, which will be the last and hopefully all answers will be answered.
The Incident started with two men (supposedly friends) talking on the beach. One of them is Jacob (it’s nice to finally have a face for the name) and the other one is still a mystery for me. Who is he? What the hell happened to him? Why haven’t we heard of him before? Not sure if any of these questions will be answered. Anyway, in the end of this first scene we finally have a full and nice view of the statue. Yeah!
So, one more fact about Jacob: He actually met every single lostie at some time of their lives and in each situation he gave them one object: for Kate a lunchbox, for Jack a chocolate bar, for Hurley a guitar case, for Locke his own life back, for Sawyer a pen etc…
Who is FakeLoke? We all saw the real Locke dead in the box! So, who is he? I’m pretty sure he is the mystery man from the first scene. And you?
As for the last scene, I have a feeling that the flash we briefly saw, wasn’t a proper bomb explosion, but in fact it was the flash that makes them travel in time. Am I too lost here?
Oh, what about Richard Alpert? I bet he arrived on the island on that boat we saw sailing on the shore. But the question here is, what was the boat doing on the island? How did it find the island in first place? And what the hell is that language he spoke when Illana asked him what lays in the shadow of the statue? Is that Latin, Egyptian?
Do you know what I didn’t like? I really didn’t like the answer Jack gave Sawyer when asked about why he was going to detonate the bomb. Come on! I’m a romantic guy, but blow everything up because he had lost Kate? Oh, and the same goes for Juliet! I simply don’t bite it!
