The Substitute - Season 6, Episode 3


In tonight's episode, Locke seeks help to support his cause.

Locke... or Flocke?

Carlton Cuse says, "Don't miss tonight's episode. A number of things are illuminated."

We'll believe it when we see it!

Looks like not much has changed.

Sayid'sgirl said...

First?

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol I spelled forst twice. It was worth a shot. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

memphish
How so?

memphish said...

So the pop-ups are totally wrong, huh? The name Joan Hart isn't on Kate's mugshot in Tabula Rasa.

memphish said...

Re change I meant the picture ML put on the post.

Ange said...

Email. Hi :). Happy watching.

maven said...

Thanks for the pop-up info! Everyone have an "illuminating" time tonight...catch ya later!

Black Swan said...

congrats on 108, maven

congrats on job interview, ML

Melissa_Lossa said...

Awesome.

Ellen said...

Hi ya'll!
Be back after the ep!...
xxoo

lost2010 said...

Helen!!!

Black Swan said...

that was cool... smokey!!!!

lost2010 said...

Yay! I'm so happy - see the ALT timeline isn't all bad - Locke has Helen!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

So far so good. Very interestinng.

memphish said...

So Locke and Helen does make me happy, even if they're both dead in some version of themselves.

Will Richard really talk? Or will he just say I could tell you, but . . .?

Melissa_Lossa said...

I love it, so far!

Black Swan said...

oh, thinking back to old theories... remember my 'that didn't go so well' list for Ben? Ha! Richard will be forced to talk! curious!

Dedjezter said...

Hello all.

Black Swan said...

i wonder who's wedding in October? thinking of Jeremy Bentham had a son?

Kat said...

I thought Locke was planning his wedding for october? maybe i missed something again.

lost2010 said...

Here we go with the candidates again. . .

Black Swan said...

Kat, you mean locke and Helen's wedding?
hmm, maybe wrong about Richard too.. LOL!

Dedjezter said...

I was thinking in this timeline it is Locke and Helens time line... Locke never met his faher, and still has his kidney.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Jacob?

lost2010 said...

Helen suggested they invite his father to the wedding. . .

Black Swan said...

Ben just can't help lying

Kat said...

"recruiting" sounds like theres going to be a war.

Black Swan said...

Sawyer's 'angry young man music?' at least that's what we call it..

memphish said...

That Old Spice commercial was awesome!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Jacob's ash!?

memphish said...

So who was the kid in the jungle?

Takes a Village said...

I like SmokieCam.

Dedjezter said...

Yes but not his real father... or maybe his mom wasn't crazy and his dad wasn't a con man... then it could be his real dad I guess.

They are reffering to his real dad only if we see Sawyer as not a con man and his dad is alive as well... maybe?

Kat said...

was the kid aaron??

Sayid'sgirl said...

In the pop ups when talking about the darkness in Sayid it talked about Locke and backgammon one side darrk one side light. P

Just Thinking said...

Yes- who did Flocke see that frightened him?

Black Swan said...

hmmm, little blond boy with blood all over his hands and arms?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Interesting that Sawyer is the first one to pick up on Flocke.

Kat said...

i agree melissa lossa!! smarttt

lost2010 said...

Whew! Sawyer's back - bitter but funny is much better than sobbing and sad.

Black Swan said...

ML, it's all in the details

Dedjezter said...

Yeah Hurley... RN is a douche... lol

Kat said...

I really liked that hurley!!

Black Swan said...

So, Sawyer and Locke can see the kid, but Richard can't

Locke broke the rules?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think the boy is Jacob. But it could be Aaron.

ObFuSc8 said...

"You know the rules. You can't kill him."

Kill who? Jacob is dead...

Melissa_Lossa said...

Also interesting that Sawyer could see the kid, when Richard couldn't.

Is Jacob not dead yet? The kid said "you can't kill him."

lost2010 said...

I thought he looked Jacob-like too. But he really reminds me of the creepy little girl in the white room on Angel - that's no kid.

Takes a Village said...

Hugo Suave. Mr.Reyes was really cool.

Ginger said...

Sawyer s#!t himself when he saw Locke walk in the room!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Maybe kill Sawyer.

Black Swan said...

Why do I think of pirates seeing that kid and he's talking about some pirate code or something?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Aw, Rose.

memphish said...

So apparently in addition to not being able to kill "him" the rules also include you can't tell him.

I do not like that the X-verse apparently moved everyone to LA.

ObFuSc8 said...

TAV -- LOL at Hugo Suave!

Takes a Village said...

Steinbeck after his time?

memphish said...

I thought the kid was just behind Richard and so he didn't see him, not that he couldn't see him.

The kid looks like a young Jacob, but he could also be taller ghost Aaron.

Kat said...

im lovin the hugo suave reference! haha

Amy Lynn said...

Subscribing to comments. Holy cow. I love TOQ.

lost2010 said...

Sawyer is sharper drunk than Ben was stone-cold sober. I kind of like that. :)

Black Swan said...

Yep, Hugo suave.. love it

It seemed to me Richard turned around quick and it showed no kid there, so i'm not sure

Just Thinking said...

Points to MIB not being around for awhile- except as Smokey? He tasted the whiskey- again that hasn't had food forever way.

Just Thinking said...

Oh- MEL- everyone is going to help Locke become the unified man?

lost2010 said...

Peace and Karma - -Helen's shirt.

memphish said...

The NUMBERS!

Dedjezter said...

I so thought Sawyer was going to push the ladder... lol

What the hell was that.... numbers and names?

lost2010 said...

The ultimate list!

Sayid'sgirl said...

OK?? :)

Amy Lynn said...

Holy holy holy this is super awesome.

Best funeral ever.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Do you think MIB set up that ladder to make Sawyer trust him?

lost2010 said...

What alarms me more is that there are lines drawn through so many of them - - are those the candidates who've been ruled out?

Ginger said...

Love Helen! Love her shirt too!


What was w/all the names on the ceiling? Were those hash marks? Like someone in jail counting the days?

ObFuSc8 said...

Need a much closer look at that chamber...

Black Swan said...

Wow, the list

ML, I didn't get that impression

Melissa_Lossa said...

I saw Jarrah, Ford and Reyes - anyone catch other names?

Jarrah was 16 and both Ford and Reyes looked like 15.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think it shows how long people have been brought there.
Frank's lines are priceless

Dedjezter said...

LInus is the annoying teacher... lol

Black Swan said...

goodwin's wife? what was her name?

ObFuSc8 said...

Gotta love ME!

Ginger said...

OMG, this episode ROCKS!

Melissa_Lossa said...

23 - Shepherd

Oh, Reyes is 8

Dedjezter said...

Its both.. Sun and Jin... He touched them both.

Black Swan said...

sheppard - = 23
reyes hugo = 8
jarrah = 16
kuon = 42
locke = 4
sawyer = 14

ObFuSc8 said...

No Kate Austen on that ceiling...

Melissa_Lossa said...

Was Austen on there?

Kat said...

why is sawyer 14 instead of 15! its bothering me. maybe that means he doesnt get the job.

memphish said...

No Austen on that wall. Interesting.

Kat said...

that was a really good episode!!

ObFuSc8 said...

Wa huh? Hell yes??!

memphish said...

I thought Ford was 15. Time to hunt for screencaps.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Ford was 15

ObFuSc8 said...

15- Ford (just a typo above)

geekboypress said...

Pretty sure Locke is next in my series:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39639222

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40356843

Can't wait for next week!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Another little fib from TPTB. They said the numbers didn't mean anything in the show and would play out. They love to protect their show. :) Good for them.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Best. Episode. Ever. (except for The Constant!)

memphish said...

Still not a huge fan of the X-verse. I liked that we got to see Locke with Helen. But really didn't like the cross with Rose since she's from the Bronx. That butterfly flapped hard.

As for Ben Linus, European History. First - what middle school/high school has a dedicated European History teacher especially in California, but does this definitively demonstrate that the Island didn't sink at the time of the Incident since Ben was definitely on the Island then?

Black Swan said...

OOPS, i meant Sawyer - 15

geekboypress said...

By the way, anyone notice Gary Troupe's name on the rock?

Amy Lynn said...

That was incredible. There are no words for now incredible that was.

Just Thinking said...

So this is from MIB's point of view- but he's not telling Sawyer everything.

Black Swan said...

Am i the only one to see Harper sitting there when we saw Ben?

Melissa_Lossa said...

memphish - good point on the island sinking...

Melissa_Lossa said...

Black Swan - I didn't notice her, I'll have to check.

lost2010 said...

All the candidates left the island except Sawyer.

Kate was touched by Jacob but isn't a candidate. . .

Interesting.

Amy Lynn said...

I think I need to see that again.

memphish said...

So was that the psychic Hurley's dad took him too who asked Locke what kind of animal he was?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Maybe Kate's 108. :)

Black Swan said...

Black Swan - I didn't notice her, I'll have to check.

lost2010 said...
All the candidates left the island except Sawyer.
Kate was touched by Jacob but isn't a candidate. . .
Interesting.

yes, very!


I'm re-watching already and will make sure that was Harper

Melissa_Lossa said...

memphish - I KNEW she looked familiar - you're right!

Ginger said...

@ Just Thinking - Exactly! The war is for the Island. What is MIB leaving out? Just saving the world? Keeping MIB imprisoned on his own little Alcatraz.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Memphish
Yes! I couldn't place her.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah it look's like they are choosing sides or eliminating them.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Maybe MIB can't leave the island unless Jacob's equivalent also leaves?

Maybe that's what the kid meant - that he couldn't kill Sawyer.

Just Thinking said...

He needs someone to come- first tried with Richard.

memphish said...

Here's the other thing about those numbers on the wall. First off all but possibly Kwon are men. I'll bet it's Jin not Sun despite the touching. We've also seen that Miles and Frank may be candidates per Bram and Ilana, but they weren't on the wall either. I'm sure the wall will be endlessly nitpicked. I'd love to see Ben's name marked through. Do they get marked through when they die or when they fail to prove to be a candidate?

memphish said...

Good point JT. You're right about that. How do you think he'll leave?

Also, do you think he's stuck in Locke's body because of Jacob's death? Does that "freeze" him so to speak?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Right what does MIB need to do to leave the island? And what happens if/when he does?

Just Thinking said...

So - the ash. If it is the remains of someone burned- who was burned before? MIB?

ObFuSc8 said...

Yes memphish about the psychic/job placement lady.

I don't think that was Harper in the PTL teacher's lounge.

JT -- MIB/Flocke's definitely not telling Sawyer everything -- "What boy?"

I thought I saw 20- ROUP (but that could have been TROUPE).

Other crossed ou names:
10- MATTINGLEY
22- ????OLT
49- ???
291- ???
?96- GRANT
291- DOMINGO (not sure about that one)

then end of one was ...ERSEN

LostIt said...

Well if the island needed to be protected from the MIB, it stands to reason that the MIB would tell Sawyer that it's all a bunch of hooey.

I noticed that it was the white rock that he threw into the water.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think they get marked off when they die. I also noticed there weren't any women except maybe Sun. Maybe their meant to rule together.

LostIt said...

And of course there are more questions, too.

- It sounds like Locke has a relationship with his father.
- Why is it that Helen didn't die in this universe?
- Who was that boy? And who can't FLocke kill? Jacob's already dead. Or is he?
- Why is FLocke stuck that way?

Amy Lynn said...

We don't know that Helen necessarily died in the main timeline, just that Abbadon said she did.

My money is on that child being a giant version of Aaron.

memphish said...

How's Jacob going to get an heir when he's dead? Why aren't those Temple people candidates?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Maybe the body that was burned was the MIB.
The rocks were on a scale now there isn't any balance with Jacob gone.

Takes a Village said...

This may be the first episode I will watch again,and again.
Awesome.

ObFuSc8 said...

Also Ilana knows all about the Temple and Jin. Just more to show us she's an Other from some other time?

And MIB is now "stuck" as Flocke (at least his human appearing form). Why is he stuck? Does that show us that other Smokey appearances such as Yemi were only apparitions. What about Christian?

I guess the sequence with the Smokey sounds first headed toward New Otherton and Sawyer, then back out to the jungle where Flocke then appears represented Smokey changing between forms, without the actual visual.

memphish said...

I have some questions about the X-verse but once again I have no reason for really caring about it what with Locke in a hole and all.

RamHatter said...

Wondering if Eko was a candidate at some point, or if MIB was trying to recruit him as well back in S3 when he posed as Yemi.

Ange said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
LostIt said...

More questions

- Why are the candidates assigned numbers?
- Why were THOSE numbers the ones that were being annuonced from the tower and used all over the place. Are they the only candidates left?
- Is the MIB right about Jacob pushing Sawyer to make the choices he made that caused him to end up on the island? Like being a conman and seeking revenge?
- In the alternate timeline, is it possible that Locke's Dad didn't con Sawyer's parents?

ObFuSc8 said...

Yeah LostIt -- Flocke tossed the white stone and left the scales unbalanced with the black stone (tee hee black rock) remaining.

Amy Lynn said...

313 - Littleton 125 - Pace

Melissa_Lossa said...

And all we know is that Helen supposedly died before 2007 - in the ATL, it's still 2004.

Did we see a shot of Locke sitting at his desk, with a photo of him and his dad pinned up on the wall? Because that was in one of the promo shots.

RamHatter said...

"That butterfly flapped hard." (via Memphish) That made me laugh. Locke meeting all the characters in the X-verse is almost too convenient, but I guess its destiny.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hurley and Sayid were touched by Jacob after the O6 left. Does that mean there were other candidates that they replaced?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Locke's not a man of faith in the other time line.

lost2010 said...

Maybe you aren't seeing what their lives would have been like 'if their plane didn't crash'. Maybe you're seeing what their lives would have been like 'if Jacob didn't touch them'.

memphish said...

I'm wondering if Jacob touched anyone if the alt-verse.

Cool Amy Lynn.

It almost seems as if everyone's on Jacob's "team" or is a candidate until they die. Which begs the question, how do you take over for Jacob?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Nice thought lost2010.

memphish said...

I think you may be on the right track Lost2010. But that would put the reset back before 1976 which is when Sawyer's parents died.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ben had said he broke the rules (Widmore) when Alex was killed. I wonder if she was a candidate?

ObFuSc8 said...

233- JONES

Amy Lynn -- which part of the ceiling did you see PACE AND LITTLETON written on?

Amy Lynn said...

@Ob, I'm copy/pasting from another friend on Twitter... http://twitter.com/adamlunceford

LostIt said...

Maybe the reset that resulted in the X-verse hasn't happened yet. Maybe the bomb just sent them back to 2007 and the reset is what will happen at the end of the series. What we're seeing in the X-verse is when all of that is over.

So if the island is underwater, I guess it doesn't need to be protected anymore, huh?

Sayid'sgirl said...

So maybe Kate is on there we just haven't seen her name because it's not one of the numbers.

memphish said...

So the pantsless Sawyer was a shoutout to Damon and his OLP broadcasts, right?

lost2010 said...

I'm thinking that if you tear apart the space time continuum, that it would cause ripples. . .that would reach forward and back. . .

They tossed a really big boulder into the timestream - seems logical it would have splashed backward a little bit too. . .Sawyer's touch was just barely in the past. . .maybe it got splashed over.

LOL - Ahhhhh, great episode - love to theorize. . .

LostIt said...

LOL! Memphish, I hadn't thought of that! He should have had a sombrero too!

ObFuSc8 said...

Thanks Amy Lynn, haven't checked twitterfeed yet.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Memphish
could be

Just Thinking said...

Eyes tired- have to watch again tomorrow- thanks Locos- will catch up then.

Sayid'sgirl said...

See you later JT.

memphish said...

Showing us Jacob touching everyone like we are too stupid to remember it really annoys me just like that stupid dock scene they showed 23 times last season.

lost2010 said...

G-nite all! Thanks for letting me watch with you guys! It's always so much fun to see what everybody thinks.

Amy Lynn said...

@memphis... well, to be fair, the dock scene was different every time they showed it.

If there are any brand new viewers, they'd be more likely to appreciate stuff like seeing Jacob touch every one of our um, candidates and non-candidates

RamHatter said...

Memphish, I'm guessing showing the scenes with Jacob (again) were for people who started watching (or picked it back up) at the premiere.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol memphish
night lost2010

ObFuSc8 said...

And per CC's tweet, a number of things were illuminated -- literally!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Okay - chatting with another friend and she says Desmond's photo was on the wall in the temp agency. Can anyone confirm?

Mr. Mel has commandeered the TV for video games...

RamHatter said...

Tyler Stout's Lost ARG poster is even more interesting now, with Sawyer next to Locke.

Capcom said...

Great ep, wow! Very satisfying.

A couple years ago Wayne Allen Sallee on EyeMSick guessed that each Lostie had a VE number and might even be an aspect of the VE itself.

I wonder why the kid was bloody the one time and then not the next. Dead and a ghost the first time? Ot time traveling from the FDW? Who knows.

ML said: "Maybe MIB can't leave the island unless Jacob's equivalent also leaves?" - that's what I was wondering on my blog last week too. link

I sure would have taken a heck of a lot more ash than Ilana took, sheesh.

That poster behind Locke in Hurley's agency had a guy on it that looked an awful lot like Desmond. The guy is with some chick with dark hair. It seemd as if the camera made a point of lingering back and forth on a shot of the Des-like guy over Locke's shoulder. Can anyone get a cap of it?

Black Swan said...

No, I don't think it was Harper, but a resemblance. sorry

ObFuSc8 said...

Not Harper. Will go back and look at temp agency, but I doubt I can get screencap.

Just Thinking said...

Oh -back for one more thought-

Flocke saying their was nothing to protect in the island is like John saying that button didn't need to be pushed. I wonder if Flocke really believes that?

Capcom said...

It's sort of a monocolored poster type thing Ob, over Locke's shoulder on the cubicle wall behind him. Thanks for trying!

Capcom said...

Interesting JT. I kind of got the impression that he was just lying to James about the island to trick him, but I could be wrong of course.

Sayid'sgirl said...

JT
Yeah and we know how that worked out. :)

RamHatter said...

MIB told the kid, who may or may not be a young Jacob, "Don't tell me what I can't do!" Yet, he had to find a loophole to kill Jacob.

Just Thinking said...

Or Flocke could be wrong- like John was.

Ok -really off to be now- night all.

ObFuSc8 said...

Yeah, looked at that post. It's sepia-toned, or something like that. Hard to make out features on the in it. He has a Des-like haircut, but I don't think that's Des. TPTB have been a bit more obvious about character connections in the PTL.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hmmm, but then who knows. That poster does appear to be on a boat of some sort, there seems to be an old circular life preserver in the foreground.

Capcom said...

Thanks Ob. No one else has any caps up yet, Lostmedia has a few, but not many. TPTB should just have an ABC page that they can release after the show with all the screencaps of the ep for us, haha!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Capcom
Yeah in crystal clear HD. We should send them a request

RamHatter said...

In tonight's ep, MIB was somewhat reminding me of Agent Smith in the 2nd and 3rd Matrix films. Trying to live outside of the rules and boundaries. He's the anomaly that threatens life (island). He's putting things out of balance. (Picking up the white rock off the scale.)

Thinking out loud...

Melissa_Lossa said...

All right - I'm off to bed. Good night, all!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good Night Melissa.

Takes a Village said...

Melissa_Lossa;
Sorry that your TV was claimed by Mr.Mel. I hope you get that job.
I'm going to bed now fellow candidates;
I've got to rest my weary eyes for the many comments to come.
Good night Loco's.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Night TAV.

Capcom said...

Neat idea Ramhatter.

Good luck on the job ML!

Black Swan said...

RamHatter, interesting thoughts "He's the anomaly that threatens life (island). (Picking up the white rock off the scale.)"

So the big question is, should the Island have humans on it in the first place? AND there are two ways to balance that scale
1. by putting the white stone back on
2. by also taking off the black stone

I noticed when Flocke says to Sawyer, "I am dead." It reminds me of Hurley seeing Charlie who said, "I'm dead, but I'm also here." just thinking out loud.. we've seen Jacob off island, have we also 'seen' MIB off island?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Randy says to Locke, I thought you wanted your vacation week on Oct. Claire's sonagram was 10/22/04. So maybe if was a mistake or the FS are at different times.

Amy Lynn said...

Ooh, SG, fantastic point. What the heck. Even if the Flash sideways were in September, and the due date was October, Randy would most probably refer to October as "next month" and not October.

Black Swan said...

Just Thinking said...
Oh -back for one more thought-
Flocke saying their was nothing to protect in the island is like John saying that button didn't need to be pushed. I wonder if Flocke really believes that

I don't think he was telling the truth here.

And good-night, TAV, Mel, & all those going to bed now.

Amy Lynn said...

DarkUFO has the screencaps!

http://losteastereggs.blogspot.com/2010/02/episode-6x04-substitute-candidates.html

RamHatter said...

Black Swan, I wondered if MIB could leave as well, but it seems like he can't on his own. He mentioned before that he wants to "go home". It also seems he needs Sawyer to leave as well.

RamHatter said...

Amy Lynn, thanks for the link!

Amy Lynn said...

Possible that Austen isn't a candidate because she didn't do what Jacob asked of her (to stop stealing/stay out of trouble). Everyone else either did what he asked (Hurley, Sawyer, Ilana, Sayid) or took what he offered (Jack and the candy bar, Locke and the gift of life, Jin/Sun and his blessing). Kate was the only one who disobeyed.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Amy Lynn
It's possible Randy would say next month but events are usually refered to by the month they occur in. But who knows. :)

Amy Lynn said...

Also, I agree with a poster on TWoP that as interesting as the island stuff might be, if the last 14 hours of LOST were about Locke and Ben as teachers, I'd be thrilled.

Black Swan said...

Amy Lynn, thanks for that link. And that's an interesting idea about Kate. She couldn't be manipulated, hmmm.

Just curious, Do we know Flock's definition of 'home'?

Sawyer was only partly right that Flock isn't scared. I see fear in his face when he sees little blond boy.

LostIt said...

I wonder if Desmond is a candidate. The island probably doesn't need protecting if it's underwater (or does it?), but the way Des appeared and disappeared on the plane was a bit odd. And Hawkings told him that the island wasn't done with him yet.

I have to wonder as well, why was Jacob looking for a replacement? Was it just because he knew it was a matter of time before MIB found his loophole? Or was he looking for a way out as well and couldn't leave until his replacement was found?

Maybe Eko was judged to be an unsuitable candidate after his repsonses to Yemi/Smokey. But then if MIB is smokey how does that make sense.

I'm really starting to ramble. I better get some sleep.

Scoutpost said...

Holy Mother of TV shows! Gotta go catch up on comments.

Amy Lynn said...

Welcome, West Coast :)

Amy Lynn said...

Listen, you guys. Jacob is not stupid enough to leave the island to Kate. She probably wouldn't be able to choose between the main island and Hydra island, anyway.

Black Swan said...

Lostit, those are really interesting things you brought up. I think you're right, the Island doesn't need protecting if it's underwater anymore. I personally think people were never supposed to be on the Island in the first place. Just IMHO.. but Jacob has been bringing people to the Island for so long, now they are 'the others' and their numbers are pretty well built up. So, for whatever Flocke needs Sawyer, I would guess he has to show Sawyer that he's fooling himself that the Island is his 'home', that the Dharma house was 'his', that anything going on with the Island should be looked at as real life. Sawyer has always been the one to look at the Island more as a viable place to live. He had nothing to go back to the 'real world' and actually did find a better life there. idk, getting late and starting to ramble now.. LOL!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Lostit
Good point. Why was Jacob looking for a replacement?

Black Swan
We really don't know what MIB considers home. He was definitely afraid of the boy.
Richard is a little disappointing. He's really terrified of MIB.

Time for bed. Night all.

Black Swan said...

Goodnight, Sayid'sgirl

Yeah, seeing Richard that way is disappointing. I suppose he's terrified because he said Jacob keeps him young and well, no more Jacob at the moment.

I'm thinking the boy is Jacob younger.

Scoutpost said...

Yes- seeing Richard dissheveled and frightened was...disturbing. He lost all his cool.

Such good questions. I'm so tired I can hardly think.

I haven't looked the second time, but I thought that was Harper in the teacher's lounge too...are we sure it wasn't?

lost2010 said...
Maybe you aren't seeing what their lives would have been like 'if their plane didn't crash'. Maybe you're seeing what their lives would have been like 'if Jacob didn't touch them'.


I think you're onto something there. I think that what we're seeing is not necessarily what would've happened, but something else. Whether it has to do with Jacob's touch, I don't know, but good thought.
