Horace seems a little creepy, even for a guy who’s been dead 12 years.
So, the Ageless Wonder (Richard Alpert) was around at John Locke’s birth, huh?
Alpert visits John when John’s 6 or7 years old a asks him to think about these things (baseball mitt, old Book of Laws, vial of sand, a compass, a comic book, and a knife) and figure out which of those belong to him already. John chooses the sand, the compass and the knife. Alpert tells him that the knife really doesn’t belong to him, he packs up all his toys and leaves.
We saw the birth of the Man of Science/Man of Faith struggle within Locke.
Sayid’s on the case to rescue some Losties.
Matthew Abbadon was Locke’s physical therapist/orderly and also, the one to inspire John’s Australian walkabout.
Abbadon says that when Locke sees him again (after his outback trip) John will “owe him one.”
So Christian Shephard is a mouthpiece for Jacob?
QUESTIONS & THOUGHTS:
Okay, the doctor’s body washed ashore but in the scenes we watched tonight, Sayid leaves before the doctor’s throat is slit and he’s in a motorboat (rather than the less fast method of travel – waiting fur the current to drag your dead body ashore). So why hadn’t Sayid arrived last episode??
When will Locke run into Abbadon again? And what will Abbadon ask him to do? At this point we gotta believe that as a man of faith, John will do anything this man asks him (in the name of destiny – that fickle bitch).
Coincidentally, it seems that both Ben’s mom and Locke’s mothers were both named Emily. Both Locke and Ben were premies. And both mothers were removed from their sons’ lives near birth.
The captain of the ship ostensibly works (worked) for Widmore. Who is Keamy working for and what is his agenda?
So Keamy’s Plan B has a Dharma logo on it. Hunh.
We speculated Claire might have died when Keamy exploded her house a few weeks ago. And we could understand Miles seeing her (before she went off into the woods with Daddy) but would Sawyer have been able to? Would that be the first time Sawyer could see a dead person?
I don’t think Claire’s dead. But, something is definitely different about her. What happened?
Do you think Alpert was on the Black Rock? Does he just not age because he flits about through time?
How the heck do you move an island? My bet is that it’s gonna be the Orchid Station and some sort of wormhole type deal. We’re moving the island to Tunisia. Or the arctic. Pack your parkas, people!
Are we ever gonna see or find out anything more about ‘the real’ Jacob?
When Emily’s mom (Locke’s grandma) first sees Richard Alpert she seems to recognize him. Maybe she saw him before years ago but hasn’t aged?
Are the writers bringing in the idea of reincarnation now? The test that Alpert gave Locke is surprisingly similar to how they find the succeeding dalai lama. (Showing him personal items from the previous dalai lama and random items and having the toddler choose which one was his).
Is Locke going to have been on the Black Rock or…Jacob himself?
