LOST: What they Died For  
First of all, no matter what you thought about "Across the Sea", the newest Totally Lost, with Mark Pellegrino and Titus Welliver as the 'special guests' is just completely awesome. Both hilarious Jacob-Smokey sitcom and a good serious interview with the actors.

In six parts, over here, at EW.com .




So, we have the set up for Sunday:


Sideways:
Desmond, Kate, Hurley, Sayid, Jack, David, David's mom (Juliet), Daniel, Penny, Miles, Sawyer (who doesn't want to go, but clearly will get there somehow), Charlotte, Widmore and Eloise, Charlie?, and Pierre Chang will be at the concert. I think I got everyone?

The only ones unaccounted for at the concert: Locke, Ben, Jin and Sun, and Claire. Sun is still in the hospital. And Locke could easily be there now that he's said yes to Jack's treatment. Claire could go to the concert maybe, since Jack's going.

And it was fun seeing Ana-Lucia and Danielle again. SO WRONG to ship Ben and Danielle a little, but ... awwwwww.

So the question of the hour: what the hell is Desmond going to do to wake all these people up to remember their alterna-selves? Is it just going to be Daniel's music? Is Desmond going to set off a bomb? It's gotta be some reason he's trying to pull them together.

But Desmond's smirk when he saw Sayid--- PRICELESS. "I love it when a plan comes together" indeed.


On Island:
Ben is working Smokey (I think), playing for time, trying to figure out what's going on and if there's a way to stop him. Smokey wants Ben to kill the other candidates and destroy the Island.

Widmore is dead. Probably.
Richard is not. I hope.

Desmond, Miles, and Claire are at large.

Jack has volunteered to be the new Island Protector. But Jacob's "as long as you can" was a bit ominous, so there's something else coming there. Either Jack doesn't last long, or the job doesn't last long.

Sawyer and Kate have now also seen and talked to Jacob and learned a little bit more about what the Island is.

Jacob: I picked you cuz you were all losers.
Losties: NO WAI
Jacob: Think about it.
Losties: oh. yeah. good point.

Jacob is now gone, or nearly so. *sigh*


So -- is Desmond working to erase the Sideways Reality? Or just change it? and if he's merrily trying to restore the timeline to the other one, or just destroy that one, then is that going to collide with MIB's plan to destroy it. Unless, of course, now that Desmond is all zen, maybe that's exactly what he's trying to do -- let the Island sink, trapping the Light and Smokey inside it so it doesn't need a Protector anymore since it's GONE. And meanwhile everyone in the Sideways will now be 'awake' and 'themselves' again, having learned from their Island experience but still alive.



And, damn, I really hope Pellegrino is on something else I watch next year. It's been really fun having him on two shows this season.

Dear Julie Plec - he would be an awesome supernatural creature on Vampire Diaries. Master vampire. Werewolf pack leader. Vampire slayer. Alaric's brother. SOMETHING. Please don't let him fall back into boring roles as 'the heavy'. He can do so much more. Plus, he appears to be a fun, cool guy.

I AM GOING TO MISS THIS SHOW Y'ALL. SO HARD.

For all that they stumble, I still can't imagine any show TRYING half the things they've done. Really, no matter what the finale brings, it'll still be an impressive achievement.

Wow, now that you say it, MP would make a great brother for Alaric. Just enough of a resemblance...

Lost makes my brain fuzzy. I'm not even attempting to speculate about the finale. I'll do all my meta after everything's aired.

As of right now the depth of my thoughts goes right about to "Kate leaning on Sawyer, awwwwwwwwww" levels, and that's it.

Wouldn't he be an awesome Alaric relative? Brother or ancestor or something.

I like all the Desmond theorys here better than what I think they are setting up. SO I'm going to adopt these.

I assumed Desmond and Kate are going to get Charlie.
Hurley and Sayid...well I guess I'll be on the side of the majority of my flist and hope they are going to find Shannon...after all Sayid needs his 'true love' to see right? Although I could careless if Shannon shows up again or not.

I think Richard's dead. I was a bit stunned with that scene. It was just like a punch in the gut with how fast it was.

And although I hated him for SEASONS and Seasons - I really like having Ben back! I like this controlling Ben better than the whiney Ben we've seen all season.



Regardless of how it ends, I've loved this ride and I'm SO going to miss being on it.
lizardbeth: Jacoblizardbeth_j on May 20th, 2010 05:13 am (UTC)
I don't think it's really a true love connection - it's just some powerful emotion connected to the Island. Sayid's True Love is clearly Nadia, IMO, but I think Shannon is the connection because she died on the Island.

I don't want Richard to be dead. Not yet. :( We got no crumpled body, so he might still be okay.... right? please don't be dead like that, Richard...

This is what I'm hoping for. Now that we've seen just how awake people can be in the sideways world (Hurley knowing who Ana was even though they really didn't have much of an island connection), I'm hoping all of our people will be 'reborn' in the sideways world and the island will be destroyed so no one else has to be trapped on it. Either that or Jack is the one left standing and he makes some sort of sacrifice so everyone else can survive in the other reality.

I'd love something where Jack or whoever's left has to choose between the two worlds. And Not!Locke asks that person how they know the other world is any better and they're just like 'I have faith' or something...:)

oh, yes, that'd be awesome! I like that.

Because ultimately I think Jack (and the other losties) are proving Jacob right - that humans are not innately corruptible. Which means that at least some people must refuse to be corrupted, or like Sayid,come back from it to do something heroic.

IN a way, I think it kind of hinges on James. Jack's always been heroic, at least in intent. So him stepping up to do take up the burden is expected. And I'm pretty sure Jacob always figured Jack would be his back-pocket fail-safe. So I figure he's going to have to do something not selfish (and not reckless, James!). And THEN, he'll get to meet Juliet again.

And then PLEASE DARLTON, we will see their Other Lives cascade through their brains and they'll fall into each other and... Or at least coffee.

I kinda love the idea of everything falling on James doing the selfless/heroic thing :)


And then PLEASE DARLTON, we will see their Other Lives cascade through their brains and they'll fall into each other and... Or at least coffee.

I'm almost afraid now that my expectations for their reunion are too high. Now that we've seen other people 'wake up' in the sideways!verse, I'm assuming that will happen with these two and they'll remember each other and it'll be epic and beautiful and...if it's JUST coffee, I may be disappointed:(
lizardbeth: Julietlizardbeth_j on May 20th, 2010 07:44 am (UTC)
I, uh, see you got the intent there, even though I must have dropped a sentence at some point and forgotten to transition from Jack to James. Coherency, what? ;)

oh yes, the coffee is sort of my way to manage my own expectations. After all,Juliet didn't say, "We can go have hot monkey sex at my place." Unfortunately. *g* So I don't really think it'll be super epic. But heck after all this WAITING, I think it's about time we get to see her at all!

Okay, so I'm not reading most of the post because theoretically I will someday get caught up with all the Lost eps I haven't seen yet (which would be, well, at least 3 full seasons) and I don't want to be utterly spoiled (yes, I am a delusional dork, but you already knew that), but I just had to say...

OMG MARK PELLEGRINO AS ALARIC'S SARDONIC, SNARKY, SEXY BROTHER WOULD BE BEYOND PERFECT.

I KNOW RIGHT? I want it SO BADLY now that I've thought about it.

Or his ancestor. Who's a vampire now, because he'd rock at that, as some Elder type coming in to smack some sense into the Salvatores. I don't know, he just needs to be on my tv as something cool again.
