Lost Finale Alternate Endings

Lost Final Season Finale Alternate endings from Jimmy Kimmel show:

What Lost Season Finale Meant

The meaning of the Lost finale was that the entire show had been a demonstration of a test of Jack's life for him to prove his bravery and get into heaven.

Like the movie Defending Your Life

That's just one theory.

Desmond is Jacob's Brother

We just posted this video in the previous post What They Died For - New Episode May 18 and our revised thought is that it deserves it's own post for speculation and thought.

Spend a few minutes watching this video and think about if there's anyway that Desmond is the reincarnation of Jacob's brother or something else to that effect. They're both special.

What They Died For - New Episdoe May 18

What They Died For is the last new episode (airing May 18) of Lost before the two hour finale Sunday. That's right, in less than a week all of your Lost questions will be answers ... well sort of. Secretly we're hopefully there will be plenty of piecing together to do.

In terms of interesting reading to prep for tonight's new episode of Lost here's some suggested articles by writers with insights far superior to ours:

Finally, I have to thank Peter for his comment last week that suggested readers check out this youtube video with a unique theory ... that Desmond is Jacob's brother. I'm not sure if that means reincarnated or what ... see you in another life brother!

What Happened in Lost Last Night? Across the Sea

If you're wondering what happened in lost last night in the episode Across the Sea you're not the only one.

Viewers for the most part were pleasantly surprised to see an entire flashback episode that flashed very far back. There were no real times scenes at all (flash sideways or otherwise).

Let's recap what we learned: how Jacob became the protector of the island, the origins of the Adam and Eve skeletons from season one, how the man in black became the monster (at least for a while in that form, and to some extent the origin of the donkey wheel concept.

Let's address some questions and answers now:

Question: What year was it when the man in black and Jacob were born?
Reports say it was the year 23 A.D. Other reports say between 450 BC and 900 AD.

Question: What game were Jacob and the Man in Black playing?
Answer: The game is called Senet. (Wikipedia link right there.) It's said to be an old Egyptian game. Senet may be the oldest board game in history (at least documented) and was placed in the tombs of some ancient Egyptian graves for the afterlife travels. Interesting the Man in Black character knows how to play this game immediately without ever having been taught. This might be a hint to his reincarnation or much longer spiritual existence. Maybe the concept is that every person has this historically rooted spirituality but the Man in Black can tap into it because he is special.

Question: What language were the mother of Jacob and the Man in Black and the women who killed her speaking at the beginning of the Across the Sea episode?
Answer: Claudia speaks Latin.

Question: What does the Dharma group call the Smoke Monster?
Answer: Cerebus.

Question: Why did the woman who took care of Jacob and the Man in Black kill their real mother?
Answer: She was doing what she thought was best for the island.

Question: Was the crazy women who took care of Jacob and the Man in Black growing up the Smoke Monster before the Man in Black?
Answer: Possible. She claimed to be island protector but maybe she a victim of the smoke monster curse and that's why she did some of the evil things that she did.

Question: What was the name of Jacob and his Nemesis' real mother?
Answer: Claudia.

Question: What line really stood out in this episode?
Answer: "they come, they fight, they destroy, they corrupt and it always ends the same." The same words spoken in the Lost season five finale as the Black Rock was approaching.

Also, "It's going to be you" which the woman who raised Jacob said to Jacob about protecting the island and is the same thing that Sayid said to Jack before killing himself in the previous episode the Candidate.

Question: What is inside the mystical light cave?
Answer: "Life, death, rebirth, it's the source, the heart of the island."

Question: How was the well that the Man in Black and the roman type natives were building filled up?
Answer: The woman who raised Jacob and the Man in Black was the previous Smoke Monster and she was able to do it.

Question: Why didn't the woman who raised Jacob want the Man in Black to leave the island?
Answer: Her response, "Because I love you... thank you."

Question: Did the characters really speak English or Latin?
Answer: They probably spoke Latin during the time of this episode but for simplicity English was used for the sake of the audience.

Question: Who will take the Smoke Monster's place on the island and be the next Smoke Monster?
Answer: Desmond because like the Man in Black he is also special.

Final thought

When we saw the Man in Black in the Lost season 5 finale it really wasn't Jacob's brother. Ever since Jacob pushed his brother into the light his actual brother has been dead [he laid him to rest with their "mother" and the bones were found in season 1 of Lost (Adam and Eve)].

In the season 5 finale it was smokey sitting next to Jacob. Smokey took over the deceased body of Jacob's brother before later taking over the body of Christian Shepard when it came to the island and eventually the dead body of John Locke when it came to the island. There may have been other dead bodies that washed up onto the island that Smokey took the form of between having the form of Jacob's brother and Jack's father.

The Candidate Recap Questions and Answers

The Candidate Recap Questions and Answers

Question: What song was playing in Claire's music box?
Answer: Catch a Falling Star.

Question: What candy bar did Jack get from the vending machine?
Answer: An Apollo Bar.

Question: Were Jin and Sun both candidates or just Sun?
Answer: Sun was a candidate and Jin was not. Candidates can't die by choice. Jin died by choice and Sun did not.

Question: Is Frank Lapidus still alive?
Answer: The easy answer is that with only three episodes left he's probably dead. On the other hand though even with deaths to Sayid, Jin, and Sun it seems like the show would at least make a point of Frank Lapidus dying.

Question: Why did Christian Shepard leave the music box for Claire?
Answer: In the hopes that the song Catch a Falling Star would jog Claire and/or Jack's memories about the island world.

Question: Can the Oceanic survivors / candidates leave the island by using the frozen donkey wheel?
Answer: Yes.

Question: Can anyone else left on the island fly a plane beside Frank Lapidus?
Answer: In the pilot episode Jack mentions that he took flying lessons.

Question: How does fake Locke know there are survivors from the submarine explosion?
Answer: Because he's still unable to leave.

Question: Would the bomb have gone off in the submarine if Sawyer had left it alone?
Answer: No.

Question: What did Locke mumble while he was unconscious in the hospital?
Answer: Push the button.

Question: Where did Locke get the timer for the bomb he put in Jack's backpack that he took in the submarine?
Answer: From the digital watch that he took off of one of the guys that he killed who was guarding the airplane.

Question: Did the Oceanic crew begin their submarine trip / dive during the afternoon and wash ashore in the middle of the night?
Answer: Yes. That's a continuity mistake.

What Happens Tonight In Lost?

What Happens in tonight's episode of Lost titled The Candidate? Hopefully some questions finally get answered. We're hoping we get some more Daniel Faraday since he seems to be the only character interested in trying to explain anything to the viewing audience.

For a brief preview that won't ruin anything take a look at this Dan Snierson article from

There are three video previews that you can see by going through this entertainment weekly link that are worth watching for a preview of tonight's episode of Lost.

What happens in Lost tomorrow?

The name of the new Lost episode coming on for the first time on Tuesday May 4, 2010 is "The Candidate."

Although not much is known about this episode it's a pretty safe guess that with only four episodes left some serious developments will have to be made with some key characters.

So, who is the candidate that is being referred to in the title "The Candidate"? Our guess is Jack.

As an aside, can anyone else believe that three weeks from today Lost will officially be over? It seems hard to imagine that in less than three weeks ever major question about the show will (should) finally be answered.

This storyline has come a long way since the pilot episode first aired on September 22, 2004.
