LT141: Whose That Man?


Yes, I keep finding these. Ok, the following picture is when Sun is kidnapped from behind by Charlie to make it appear the Others are still a threat.

But that’s not Charlie!


As we struggle to figure out the rules of time on LOST, let me share something that came to mind. When Ben turns the wheel the island’s calendar is late December 2004. He then jumps to October 2005.

How do we know he jumped forward? Because he asked the hotel clerk to confirm it was 2005. This means Ben knew he was jumping ahead in time.

Meanwhile, Sayid has aged about 300 days which includes time enough to get married and see his new bride get killed.

Let’s get this straight…late December 2004 and on this day the island disappears, Ben is in the desert and Sayid is on his way back to the mainland. Yet, Ben is now ten months ahead. Huh? But his arm is still cut and bleeding from an accident just minutes earlier. His body is thus Dec 04, but his environment is not Oct 05.

If that helps you put two and two together, please…let me know!


I see the two producers chatting during an interview where they have been asked, “Who is Jacob?” Cuse is shaking his head saying, “Stop, say no more”, while Lindelof is mumbling a bunch of worthless things like, “He is some mysterious force”. But then I re-watch it and hear something new. Lindelof says, “…in the center of the island…”

If you think back to the Blast Door Map, the question mark was in the center. Someone needs to get back to the Pearl station and have another look around. Find out who was smoking those cigarettes.

LT140: Another Oddity, Theory and Video


Last post I offered an oddity in that Libby tried to direct Hurley’s nagging mental puzzle by saying he had stepped on her toe even though Hurley was the last to board and Libby was in the tail section.

This post my oddity is Sawyer’s real name. Remember back when Hurley was taking the census. It was soon after the crash and was great idea. The census taking ended up revealing Ethan as a mole. Why then weren’t we shown Hurley struggling with Sawyer’s name? It’s one thing to have a nickname, but with flight security he should have been forced to use his real name, James Ford, that matched his ID.

It’s possible Sawyer explained things to him and told him to keep it secret…but it is an oddity we weren’t shown that conversation as it has a lot of potential as a key component. But if Hurley was not told – and Sawyer was very private at that point of the LOST vacation – then Jack should have been alerted to two names not on the list: Ethan and Sawyer.

When Locke brings up Sawyer’s real name it is interesting that Sawyer didn’t ask, “Did Hugo tell you that?” That would allude to how the manifest and census were able to be completed accurately.


Someone was watching past episodes including the one where named “Expose”. In it Hurley and Sawyer find the script to the episode and it reads:

Hurley: No way, Mr Lushard was the Cobra!Charlie: Is that supposed to mean something?Hurley: Dude, the Cobra's this big, bad guy who's identity has been shrouded in mystery for four seasons.

Knowing the writers of LOST like we do, this could be a hint to the identity of Jacob who has been a mystery for four seasons of LOST.

It is a bit of reach but we constantly reminded that there are tons of clues we haven’t picked up on. The missing clues may not be revelations as much as tiny nuggets, so this could be one of those clues.

We could reached a bit further and suggest that Cobra is sort of an acronym for Jacob. The “r” needs to be a “j” to fit, but we could stretch just a little more and note that an upside “r” is a “j” sort of.

Continued brainstorm includes the observation that Lushard might be suggesting a drunk…like Christian.

If this is being interpreted correctly then it might indicate Jacob will be exposed next season!


We know Locke is fond of saying “Don’t tell me what I can’t do”.

Hurley goes for the “Dude” thing.

So what’s Kate’s catch phrase? Kate tells the Australian Farmer, “My name’s not Annie”. In the episode, “Whatever the Case May Be”, she tells the bank robbers, “My name’s not Maggie”. In “I Do” she tells her husband, “My name’s not Monica”. Finally, when she meets Cassidy and helps her with a bit of revenge she say’s, “My name’s not Lucy”.
