It was storming last night and everything was going great. I had just finished gaming with 2 of my best friends and was about to lay my head down to sleep for the night. Suddenly, I heard a lot of rustling going on in the ceiling above me. It kind of startled me at first because it was loud and I had only ever heard that sound once before, but I had previously thought that it was just people above me walking around. I became fully aware that this was a mouse roaming around…and I intended to kill it.
Did I not say that Desmond Hume was in the locked door on the sub?! Yeah I did, YEAAAAHHHH!! I got money that says he can control his abilities to time travel and time warp. That’s why they had him on drugs and unconscious because if they didn’t he would just warp outta there. I am so happy.
I literally just watched the episode so everyone please bear with me here. It is fresh in my mind and I don’t have much time before I have to quickly leave and head home to catch the next episode. Which by the way, is called Recon and will feature Sawyer doing some ‘things’ for Man in Black (Smokey).
Anywhoodle, I really loved this episode. A LOT. I think that episodes this season just keep getting better and better. The actor that play Benjamin Linus is phenomenal! I felt like it revealed a lot of information for the viewer regarding some big questions that you may have already known and may have not known.
I just want to touch on some things that I noticed and really put some thought into. Let’s start off with talking about Richard. I always knew that he must have been given the ability to live a long life due to Jacob, that much was known. However, I was not aware that he unable to kill himself. He said that this gift was given to him simply by Jacob touching him. This means that every person that Jacob has touched, has this ability until it is released from them! Remember when Michael was trying to kill himself a few seasons back but was completely unsuccessful? Yeah, no good, his own gun wouldn’t go off because he couldn’t die! I had also thought that Richard must have been a slave of the black rock but after thinking about I realized that maybe he wasn’t and really was a slave driver instead. I think this because of all the remorse he seems to have for one, and for 2, since when were whites ever transported as slaves? (not racial).
Alright, another VERY cool thing I think is about to happen is the return of Desmond. We know for sure that he is called to the island that he has yet to come back again. I think that he is on the sub with Widmore. How he got on the sub? I’m not entirely sure, but it could have been by force. Maybe even Penny and their boy Charlie are on it with them. Can’t wait to see what happens with that.
Is Charles Widmore just a selfish man or is he actually a good guy in disguise? Jacob told MIB that ‘they were coming’ a while episodes back. It made you think that the others were coming, when in reality, maybe he meant Widmore. This would explain why Widmore didn’t want to dock the sub at the end of this last episode and talk to everyone on the shore. He is heading to the Hydra Station and plans on attacking MIB. What do you think?!
Lastly, let’s talk about the candidates. We know now as told by Ava that there are 6 candidates. Who are these candidates? Well, we know of some - Jack Sheperd, Hugo Reyes, Sawyer and Kwon (which Kwon we don’t yet know). This leaves 2 more open spots! Maybe it’s Desmond? Hopefully we will know soon.
Jack sure did step it up this last episode, he jumped back into his ‘destiny’ role and really showed what he was made of when he faced the dynamite. Is he the new Jacob? At any rate, someone is destined to become the new Jacob and I’m very excited to see who it may be.
More on the Man in Black’s intention’s in the next blog when I have more time. I promise! Hope you enjoyed my thoughts and questions! Comments appreciated!
