Stupid Ryan Scott watched it and almost spoiled it for me. I would have punched him in the face if he did. I refuse to watch/read anything about Season 6 at this point.

Seriously, it's bad when even the thieving pirates are only releasing an episode three minutes at a time. Lost might be the most blue-balling TV show in the history of TV.

I just finished re-watching season 5 on Hulu.

One of the things I'm left wondering about. Why would the MiB (man in black) need Richard to show him where Jacob was. Shouldn't he, of all people, know where to find him? That's assuming fake Locke really is him in disguise, though.

I actually just watched it just so I could finish this week's podcast before the show comes up and I don't really regret it. There was nothing major, except for more speculation fuel.

Can't wait for the premiere. I haven't watched anything on "live" TV aside from sports in a very long time, but I'm making an except for Lost this season.

I'm surprised that nobody has said this, especially considering the season 6 premier. I'm willing to bet that The Island is Atlantis. I mean, comeon. Mystical island, lost civilizations that lived there, it's now sunken under the sea. It's so obvious that it hurts!

I guess, but the Egyptian motif kind of clashes with that, and that seems too easy for Lost.

In antiquity, Egyptian culture was not limited to just Egypt, and they historically dominated the cultures of other peoples and places in the Mediterranean like the Phoenicians. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Phoenicians, the Etruscans, the Celtics, etc. all had trading posts and colonies throughout the entire Mediterranean as well. It's a definite possibility, and I'm from the Ryan Scott school of thought that says Lost will have a logical, reasonable, and easy to understand conclusion.

I figured out lost.
I was talking to my mother who is a lost fan and fellow sci-fi geek.
We though it had to do something with good and evil.
Like the devil and GOD
they need each other but they can't get rid of each other.
That has to be what the island is about.
Like one example would be how locke what to commit suicide to get people back on the island.
But Ben wouldn't let him. So Ben killed locke. like in Christianity its a sin to commit suicide.
Just a idea guys

Well you have to figure that there's something deity-like about Jacob and his nemesis considering they don't age and can "bring" people to the island. Plus, the fact that there are rules apparently forbidding them from killing each other outright and have to use humans to do what they want is a pretty classic story for fighting gods.

Co-Showrunner Carlton Cuse told the audience that they do not plan to comment on the finale once it's been broadcast. While we wait for them to reconsider that attitude, they also teased a lot about questions we're still waiting on answers to; Entertainment Weekly helpfully broke it down for us:


Spoiler: show
The answer is "yes" to the following: Will Richard and Ilana exchange some words soon? Will we see another painting by Bender? Do some of the characters' last names have significance, particularly Jack's? Is Jack married to someone we've met before? Was Jacob telling the truth when he said someone was coming to the island? Will we learn more about Hurley and Libby's connection? Will we see Vincent and Charlie again? Will we learn if Desmond was really on the plane?

The answer is "no" to the following: Will we get a conclusion to the story of Ben's love, Annie? Do the purple circles in Bender's mural mean anything? Did Juliet's ex-husband get killed by a smoke bus? Will there be a DVD release of the show in chronological order?

The answer is "maybe" to the following: Will the Hurley bird be explained? Will we see Walt again?

The answer is "no comment" to the following: Will we learn why women can't have babies on the island?

What's so special about the island?
-Unfortunately, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have said this will never be explained.

Who are the two skeletons in the cave ("Adam and Eve")?
-I think it's Jacob and "UnLocke".

Cindy mentions that Jack's group is "from the first plane." Were there other planes?
-Uh...remember the second plane that got them back on the island?

What's the story with the "chains" that the Man in Black mentions to Richard?
-The Black Rock was a slave ship and Alpert was in chains the last time UnLocke saw him.

How did Claire survive the explosion when the mercenaries attacked the Others' town?
-The same way Sayid survived, which is why they're both "claimed".


SECONDARY PLOT POINTS
What caused the food drop?
-Time travel.

Series finale episode title (as revealed by Damon and Carlton on the Official Lost Podcast):

Spoiler: show
The End

It's so revealing and informative, I hesitated to post it here, even with the spoiler tag.

Or not.

What? Oh man, that would be way awesome, and exactly the kind of thing I would need to get me out of bed. Make me actively involved in something from the second of waking up. If they could put some hydraulic lifts under my floorboards to simulate intense magnetic pull that would be even better.

Well, the Tauntaun sleeping bag from ThinkGeek started as an April Fool's Day gag and eventually became a real product, so you never know.

Rydog wrote:Why is pregnancy such a major issue on the island?

I'm pretty sure it's because of the radiation from the incident.

Rydog wrote:What special significance does the resurrected Christian have? Is he the Man in Black, too?

Black Locke (the Man in Black) has clearly been every dead person on the island ever. The pop-up episodes specifically stated this, that he was Christian, and he was Alex when Alex told Ben to follow Locke. Plus, Claire refers to Black Locke as her "firend," inferring that she's known him for a long time. She started hanging out with him in the cabin when he was Christian.

Rydog wrote:Who is the mysterious boy that appeared to the Man in Black and Sawyer?

It was a young Jacob. You haven't watched any of the pop-up episodes, have you? ;)

Rydog wrote:What was Dogen's significance in preventing the Man in Black's entry to the Temple?

Again, the pop-up episodes (watch those!) said that his power was keeping Black Locke out.

Rydog wrote:What's with Jack-X's hazy memory with regard to his appendectomy?

This is just an early indicator of the bleed-through effect that was confirmed with Charlie and Desmond in this recent episode.

Rydog wrote:Who is the mother of Jack-X's son?

My guess is Juliette



Also, the title of the last episode is extremely meaningful:

Spoiler: show
Because Jacob said in the season 5 finale that "it only ends once. Everything that happens before that is just progress."

Charlie drowned, Boone fell, Shannon was shot, Jin, Sun, and Frank drowned, Ana Lucia and Libby were shot. Regardless, I understand what you're saying. Maybe fireballs are just so damn easy and cheap to produce that the producers choose that method to kill people.

Choked, umm...bashed?, stabbed and burned, ripped open, I actually forget how Tom died, shot, and shot.

I'm not really forgetting them (except for Tom, sorry guy), those are just the ones I could think of off the top of my head.
