Recap 6:10 (The Package) and Tonight's Episode

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

Last week we finally got the answer to how Jin got stuck in the refridgerator.  Also, we learned that Sun and Jin are not married in the flash-sideways, and the watch Keamy was wearing was from Jin. Desmond made a reappearance, but other than that, we didn't learn much.

So what's on the docket for tonight?  The episode is titled (highlight for answer) Happily Ever After with a brief discription, "Desmond wakes up to discover he's back on the island", with some major guest stars including Eloise Hawkings, Charlie Pace, Charles Widmore, and Penny. It was written by Carlton and Damon, so it promises to be a top-notch episode.

What will we learn tonight?  Here's my wish list.

12. Is Charlie “The Musician”? – In Season 3, Episode22 (Through the Looking Glass) everyone’s favorite British musician, Charlie Pace meets his destiny below the Lost Sea in the dharma station, The Looking Glass. Charlie has traveled to this station to turn off a signal that is jamming the islands communication equipment. Bonnie, an Other, tells Charlie that the code to turn off the jamming equipment is the tune of “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys. Before she dies, she reports “It was programmed by a musician”. Could Charlie be this musician? For all of you shaking your head at me, I remind you that nothing is impossible on LOST.

18. Why can’t Ben kill Widmore? – In Season 4, Episode 9 (The Shape of Things to Come), Ben travels off the island Ben visits Widmore in his bedroom in the middle of the night. Widmore asks Ben if he’s come to kill him and Ben replies “we both know I can’t do that.” Why would this be? What is the relationship between these two characters and how will it end? Is one man good and the other man bad? Does the Widmore/Ben relationship shadow the Jacob/Man in Black relationship? I’m sure we’ll learn more about this relationship in Season 6.
34. Why isn’t the island done with Desmond yet? – My favorite Scotsman, Desmond has a unique gift that makes him a central character in the story of the island. We know that Desmond spent time as a monk, in the Royal Scottish Regiment, and as a set designer for the Royal Shakespeare Company, but he’s one of the only main character’s whose childhood is still a mystery to loyal viewers. Are there clues to Desmond’s special powers hidden in his childhood? In Season 5, Episode 6 (316) Eloise Hawking tells Desmond that the island isn’t done with him yet. So what does the island have in store for Desmond and will it take him away from Penny again (I’m just not sure I can bare that pain again!).

35. Eloise Hawking – The character of Eloise Hawking really embodies what is so fabulous about LOST. A character with a brief appearance in Season 3, Episode 8 when she encounters Desmond and lectures him about destiny, Eloise then appears again in Season 5 and plays a central role in the island’s story. There are still many questions surrounding the woman who spent the 1950’s as the leader of the Others on the island. We know that she was on the island, where she was pregnant with Charles Widmore’s child. We know that she must have left the island at some point, but we have no idea why or when. We know her child is Daniel Faraday, but we don’t know why his last name is Faraday or why she hid Charles Widmore as his father. We know she pushed Daniel to the island, but did she know that a younger version of herself would kill him once he’s on the island? Why does she continue to meddle in the affairs of the island? Does she work for Widmore or for someone else connected to the island?

37. Why does the island whisper? – The whispers are one of the original island mysteries. Many have speculated that the voices are the island’s dead trying to communicate with the living. Others think that the voices may be in a parallel reality and the island is the point where these two worlds meet. Other theories include the Others and Smokey. Who knows? Not me! What I do know is that the whispers have occurred in every season, so I wouldn’t be surprised to hear more whispers in Season 6.
