What lies in the Shadow of The Statue? – The LOST season finale

WOW!!! This was an awesome finale. I’m not sure what to write about it. So many cool things were revealed and. I did think it was pretty cool that we finally got to see Jacob and how he was showed up in the lives of the various people on the island long before they ever came to the island. Well, accept for Hurley and Sayid; they didn’t meet Jacob until later.So, who was the guy hanging out on the beach with Jacob at the beginning? Was the ship off in the distance the Black Rock? If it was that would put the scene some time in the 1850’s if I remember right. Who are Ilana and her people and what is their role in this whole thing?
This ended with the mother of all cliffhangers. All the various storylines have reached a point where you’re just dying to know what is going to happen next and they could go just about any direction. I think we can rule out the idea that the “dropping the bomb down the shaft” plan worked because if they managed to change the past such that they never crashed than there’s really nowhere to go next season. But that still doesn’t leave any clues as to what actually will happen? Did the bomb actually go off when Juliet whacked it with the rock? So many questions!

We now seem to have three immortal or seemingly immortal characters on this island. Richard (or Richardus), Jacob and Jacob’s unnamed companion we saw at the beginning of the episode who seemingly has been walking around as Locke this whole time. But, so far we have virtually no background on any of these characters. They have seemingly all been on the island for a very, very long time but nobody knows how long. I have no theories about Richard but I think that perhaps Mr. NoName may be the smoke monster and he and Jacob have been slugging it out for control of the island for freakin’ ever. This would fit if you consider that NoName seems to be able to take on the form of other people just like the smoke monster. Also, when Locke and Ben went in the see the ruins Locke was nowhere to be found during Ben’s little conversation with Mr. Smokey. Anyway, I guess we’ll find out in 2010. Since it’s gonna be the last season I guess any answers will have to come then. I just hope there isn’t another freakin’ writer’s strike.

Melissa, Jeff and Heather. If any of you are reading this I want your thoughts.

  1. Dude all I can say is this was the best Lost episode of the entire series. Crazy crazy crazy!!!!. My thoughts are along yours but I don't think we can rule out the idea of going back in time because you know they can do something. Give me a call to chat more.
