Okay I rewatched the episode and took notes this time so I wouldn't forget anything hehe
So in the "previously on lost" Jacob says "it only ends once, anything before that is progress". Does that mean all these alternate realities are all working towards one ultimate ending? Also, Jacob tells Not-Locke "they're coming"... Is he talking about the people in 1977 or Ilana and her team with Locke's body to expose who Not-Locke really is???
Anyone find it ironic that Rose is reading Weekly Woodsman on the plane???
In the underwater sequence, the Others village along with the sonar pylons or whatever they were that kept away Smokey are visible so it is safe to assume that Darma DID come to the island but this is the timeline where the nuke went off and the Swan station was never built therefore Desmond never caused 815 to crash. This makes me wonder... When Ben turned the wheel he set the island off on a journey through time. But what if when Locke turned it the second time, he sent it to 1977 in an alternate reality... The reality that we are now being shown where no swan = no crash and the plane lands safely? And when the nuke went off, it blasted Jack and company back to the reality they belonged in.
Hurley says he's lucky... Is this because he won lotto without the numbers that were being broadcast from the island? Also, I'm thinking that since events prior to the flight are different, maybe Locke DID go on the walkabout and he's not lying to Boone about all that. And maybe it's just me but the walkabout John described sounded A LOT like life on the island.
Something I noticed was that when Not-Locke ripped off a piece of that fabric, he wiped the knife with it and then put it into his pocket... Maybe he needs Jacob's blood to gain access to the temple? And then when Jacob talked to Hurley, how does Jacob know about Jin and the French at the temple?
Something ironic - Charlie drowned on the island, basically lack of oxygen, and that's exactly how we find him on the plane in the alternate reality... Practically dead from lack of oxygen.
I find it odd that when Sawyer first found Juliet she said the bomb DIDN'T work but then Miles tells Sawyer that when Juliet wanted to tell him was that it DID work and she apparently wanted to tell him this just before dying - what let her know it actually worked?
At the end of this episode you can clearly see Jin does NOT have a wedding ring on and in the next episode you can see that Sun doesn't have one on either.
For the second episode I didn't really notice too much but instead noticed stuff that raised some questions. Like the one armed French guy... Jin says he had his arm ripped off by the smoke monster. I thought the smoke monster's home was the temple so either that's wrong, or the underground tunnels where the French guy was isn't considered part of the temple. Also, it's not like the coffin just disappeared off the plane or disappeared as it was being unloaded. The coffin was never loaded in the first place - coincidence??? I also want to know why Sayid is so important and can't die. Is it because the people on the piece of paper that was in Hurley's case are special and picked by Jacob? Are they going to prove to be important in the fight against Not-Locke?
In the end I think they were trying to get Jack to talk privately about Christian. I think Jack is going to find out that Christian is one of the people of the temple and all other types of things.
That's it for now Please let me know if you disagree as I love to hear other theories and have anything I might have missed or forgotten pointed out to me
