Lost: The Final Season

On February 2nd, which should be a national holiday of some kind, I will be the happiest guy alive. Why is that you ask? The final season of Lost premieres. I know some of you have stopped watching (or continue to watch, but say you stopped watching), but I have no clue how you could not want to check this out.

I recently watched the final episode of last season again and was still blown away by how awesome it was. Here are some thoughts from my post about that episode and some of my predictions…

The statue is apparently not Set or Sobek, instead it was of Taweret, which is kind of interesting since she has something to do with pregnancy and as we know, the island is weird about pregnant chicks.

Who do Jacob and his friend represent? Well I guess we should call him Locke2. What will happen now that Jacob is dead? Will Richard die? After looking at Nick’s comment, I wonder if Richard was on the Black Rock and somehow came to be involved in some “cult” of Jacob.

Jacob was reading a book when Locke fell out the window. It was a collection of short stories by Flannery O’Connor called Everything That Rises Must Converge. Interesting. Apparently the stories are about people learning moral lessons. Have the characters learned lessons about their own lives? I would say yes.

More interesting Jacob stuff. Apparently he touches all the people in the flashbacks and says sorry in some way to most. What does all that mean? I have no clue. Also, if you read plenty of other sites about this, there is a question about the guitar that he leaves in the cab with Hurley. I believe the guitar is Charlie’s. In fact, I would not be surprised if Charlie is brought back somehow.

Many people think this is impossible since Charlie and Juliet both appear on new shows (both on ABC, and most likely, both with different filming schedules than Lost). I would be fairly shocked if they both did not make an appearance this season.

Anyways, let me know what your thoughts are on the upcoming season.
