LOST notes

Well it is just a few weeks  to go until the next season of Lost. I wanted to refresh your memory (and mine) on what has happened up to now on the show and what we may have to look forward to.

However, I must admit right now I am not quite as jazzed as usual looking forward to the new season probably because the story arc (for once) seems pretty predictable.

1. Jack wants to get back to the island and Ben has some ideas to help him
2. We saw a clip of Kate and Aaron being forced out of their home by a paternity warrant (but we don’t know who sent it yet). I have a guess (see item 1 above).

 

The plan to Return to the Island

The plan to Return to the Island

 

 

3. We know that all of the O6 + Locke must return to the island
– Hurley is ready to go prompted by his visions of Charlie saying they need you Hurley.
– Sun wants to go back to see if Jin might be alive while she plots to take down Widmore and Paik industries
– Sayid works for Ben, so if Ben wants to go back you know Sayid has to follow Ben’s orders.
– Jack and Kate were the most reluctant to return but Jack is driven by guilt and Kate is driven by her fear of capture and her loyalty to Jack and Sawyer.

4. The only real wild card to me is Locke. We know he is still alive on the island (from the preview clip with him holding the bloody compass). So how do they get him back there? For that matter how can they find the island? Even Ben said before he turned that Frozen Donkey Wheel that no one knows what will happen (to the island). And don’t forget that Ben and Widmore both want to find the island but neither is sure how to get there.

5. And what is Widmore’s motivation? Ben said he is going to kill Wid’s daughter Penny but the O6 aren’t going to let that happen if they can help it since Penny is the girlfriend of Desmond fellow island castway. Widmore said he will kill Ben if that happens so maybe the play will be Sun helping Widmore find Ben while she prepares her double-cross.

Okay now I am getting a little bit more jazzed for Season 5. I’ld like to hear your thoughts on what might happen.
