Questions. Television. Popular Culture. LOST.


I thought it would be acceptable to take a break from all things Michaelmatician and talk a little bit about the final season of our favourite TV show: LOST.

I certainly will not be recapping the latest epsiode, but instead I will be posing questions the entire show has raised. Hopefully this will generate some discussion about the show as a whole and what we all hope it will reveal this finale season.

Questions:

1. How/why are The Others on the Island? How long have they been there? Why do they all speak english and claim to have been brought to the Island?

2. Who built all of the ancient things on the Island? (The Temple, the underground tunnels, the Frozen Donkey Wheel, the giant statue w/ 4 toes) When were they made?

3. Why can people die and still be physically present on/off the Island? (Christian Shephard, Charlie Pace, Jacob)

4. Why did The Others allow the Dharma Initiative to be on the Island for so long? Why did they kill them all off?

5. Why is it that when a child is conceived on the Island the mother dies during childbirth? How long has that been happening?

We all hope we will get answers to these questions. However, maybe the answers will be implied by other information given. Only Time will tell…..

    #3 – I think it’s becoming increasingly obvious that both Jacob and his nemesis can “claim” bodies of the dead.
