As with the last post on "The Substitute", I'm just going to highlight my main thoughts/questions. I'm sure I've missed some things, but that's what all you Sussers are for, right?
Let's begin with the Alterna-Lost timeline:
- What is the deal with Jack not remembering when he had his appendix removed?!
(I also want to know about the cut on Jack's neck from "LA X: Part 1... remember when he went to the bathroom on the plane?)
I don't know what to make of this. After the first episode, I read somewhere that if you follow the original timeline of 815's crash, maybe the time Jack noticed the cut was about the time he was getting stitched up by Kate. However, if this is true... then the same can't be said about his appendix. In this Alterna-Lost timeline, it's been a few days since the plane landed. Juliet removed Jack's appendix much later in the original timeline.
Then again, we are dealing with time travel. So, who knows...
- Jack has a SON?!
This was the part where I had to pause and rewind the DVR... 'cause my first reaction was, "Wait... did that boy just say 'DAD'?!"
So now the obvious question: WHO IS DAVID'S MOM?
While watching the show last week, Lula had some interesting guesses... which included Libby and Shannon. Both of us agreed David's mom is probably not Sarah (Jack's ex-wife according to the original timeline).
The next day Lula and I chatted on the phone... and her new theory as to who could be the mystery mom is one I most agree with:
And Doc Jensen thinks so, too! From his "Lighthouse" recap (BTW, Doc's recaps should be required reading for every "LOST" fan):
BURNING QUESTION: Who's David's Mom? Who's the female participant in the creation of this inexplicably conceived Sideways child? Who's this phantom woman that Sideways Jack was once with and now isn't? Wouldn't if be totally ironic and fitting if she was the Sideways iteration of Lost's resident fertility doc/Jack dumpette, better known to us as Juliet? And you wanna know why she wasn't home last night? That's right, kids: Going dutch on coffee with new boyfriend Sawyer. (Your goosebumps? That's right, I did that.)
Anyone disagree to the theory that Juliet is David's mom?
Now for on the Island:
- I didn't notice this until my 2nd viewing of this episode... but Jacob poured something into the Temple's spring... what was it and why?
- Still wondering about the identities of "Adam & Eve"
Of course, Hurley (in the way only Hurley can) theorizes maybe the skeletons are one of the original 815 survivors. My sister thinks "Adam" and "Eve" are going to turn out to be Kate and Sawyer... the two people who are "meant to be alone" end up dying together. Hmmmm...
- Claire has done lost her mind.
Out of all the scenes with Claire and Jin... here's what I noticed most:
Her "friend". Since the MIB has only been inhabiting Locke's body (or whatever you want to call it) for a few days, and Claire has been living in the jungle for the past 3 years,
- Who does Claire "see" when she looks at her "friend"?
So, what say you, Sussers? What are your thoughts and theories about this episode?
