Needless to say, since we realized that he has this shirt, he's been wearing it a lot more! And I'll be sure to post his first theory... as soon as he learns to talk.
This is known as the "Who Shot Mr. Burns" cliffhanger. Was it the Freighter Folk? Was it the Others? My guess is that it's the Freighties. We saw them doing some skeet shooting over the ocean, so we know they've got some pretty heavy arsenal (and good aim too). And remember, the helicopter was missing for a couple days. It's possible that Frank took a few of their soldiers over to the island to start picking the people off one-by-one. It'd certainly be in their favor if they were to capture Alex and trade her life for Ben's..... then again, I don't know that Ben would make that trade. I mean, he "loves" Juliet, and nearly let her drown when Jack opened the door in the Hydra. It appears he's only looking out for numero uno. So, who do you think is the shooter?
Choose a Side
Put yourself in the place of the Losties, and choose a side. Charles Widmore or Benjamin Linus? Who's good, and who's bad? Who staged the crash? I'm going to be the first to go on record as saying that I would side with Ben. I think that Charles Widmore is the bad guy here, and he is the one that staged the plane crash. He obviously knows about Flight 815, and he was the one to purchase the journal of Magnus Hanso, captain of the Black Rock (which, as we all know, is on that same island). I'd love to hear theories on who we can trust and why. If you've got any, please don't hesitate to e-mail me. But if you don't have time for an email, be sure to at least respond to the poll that I posted.
Sorry for the huge delay on this recap. It's been a crazy Easter weekend. The recap isn't totally complete yet, but I figured I'd post what I have done so far. Look for a continued recap later in the week.
Until next time!
Don't forget Jin & Sun!
Do you see it? Jin's date of death is September 22, 2004... also known as the day Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 crashed. So he is NOT one of the Oceanic 6... which means that he NEVER got off the island... which means that he could still be alive, living on the island. I have a feeling that people were being taken to the freighter in shipments of only a few at a time... and before they could get everyone off the island, the freighter had to leave, resulting in only 7 being rescued (Desmond wasn't on the plane, and wouldn't be on of the Oceanic 6.... I think). Also an interesting note... according to the date on the left (Sun's birthdate), she is only 24 on the show. That's strange, since she is actually 34 in real life.
Just a Few More Things...
So, is this the first time that Daniel Faraday is reading this entry? Or has it been there the whole time? Is he now just realizing who Desmond Hume is? Reading this journal entry also made me realize that Daniel could've just as well told Desmond about finding a constant over the phone. Instead, he sent Desmond to meet up with him in the past...as if he were using Desmond so that he could have a constant, just in case something goes wrong.
