I’m not going to say I understand Lost, because I’m not sure if I do. I have also learned that everytime I think I know what is going on, I realize I don’t.
If you haven’t seen this week’s episode, don’t bother to continue reading.
Last night, we find out John has to move the island. But we don’t find out how. I think he’s not going to move the island physically, but is going to move it in time.
If you watch the show, you know time travel exists here. It explains how some people move back and forth. And we know people can’t find the island in the future. Maybe it’s because the island doesn’t exist in the future. It’s either in the past, or in the far future.
Does it make sense? No. But a lot of things on Lost doesn’t make sense. I still don’t understand the smoke monster, or why Claire is so happy to not be with her baby. Or the point of the people in the tail end of the plane because they’re all dead now but one person. Or what happened to the rest of the others. Or what the disease is that was prominent in the first season but hasn’t been mentioned since (remember it was the reason Danielle killed her shipmates).
But I’m sure it will all be explained slowly. Very slowly.
