Epiphany

I know, I know, I promised not to blog about “Lost” for a while, but as I was having my favorite dinner tonight (seafood-bean salad), I got an epiphany: I think I know where the producers are going for the last episode of Lost, in 3 years from now.

So, I think that at the end of season 6, everyone on the island or near it, dies. Each and every one of them.

There are several clues leading to this theory, but also that’s how it feels when thinking the series as a whole. Some of the clues are:
* The premonition of Charlie’s death is a clue in itself about the nature of the show. Every one of the survivors is living on borrowed time (a’la “Final Destination”). When the plane went down, they should all have died. But they didn’t, because fate needed them alive for some more time, to clean up some mess. They get integrated into this grand plan to “save the world” — they will obviously team up with the Others and we will learn more about it in the next seasons. At the very end, in order to save the world, it would mean to blow up the island with everyone on it, perhaps by using some sort of nuclear device (maybe Rousseau’s old hidden ship can provide such a bomb, the French are still doing nuclear tests in the region). Thinking more of it, maybe causing a local volcano to erupt is easier in terms of plot. And in fact, we already had a “clue” about the island being volcanic, in Ben’s flashback episode.
* Naomi saying that they found the plane at the bottom of the ocean, and that’s nothing but viewer preparation for what’s coming.
* Carlton Cuse recently said that after the end of the series it will become apparent why there can’t be any spin off series.
* Damon Lindelof recently said that it is very possible that the very last episode of Lost might feel “sucky” to some viewers and might cause them to look back at the series in a bad light. You could only say something like this if you are going to kill off everyone at the end.
* Lost is all about surprises. It will have to go down with a boom, and that’s a good way to do an exploding series finale.

Regarding the mysteries of the island read this and this theory. I only provided a theory on a possible ending based on few clues and the characteristics of storyline the producers have employed so far.

Lost-related blogging, out.

It’s all a dream in Crazy Hurley’s head, that’s while it will suck.

I’m serious.

I doubt it… There is some talk about being in a “time loop” and such, but I don’t see it happening either. I think the finale will be more down to earth than we think.
