All Things "Lost" – Hype Heading Into Tomorrow's Finale

I will do my best today (and tomorrow in the pre-EP post) to avoid the elephant in the room (i.e. the ridiculous number of significant plot spoilers already leaked for tomorrow’s finale) and stick to what I consider to be interesting analysis and rumor heading into tomorrow’s finale:

Doc Jensen’s “Who Is in the Coffin?” Odds-On Favorite is… Ben!

Ben
Jack said he was neither ”friend nor family” to the deceased: Lost’s biggest baddie fits. While it’s unlikely Ben’s passing would inspire Jack’s suicidal thoughts, the über-Other does represent McBeardy’s best shot at his dream of getting back to the Island. Sayid — Ben’s hitman for hire — would stay away lest the funeral might be a trap designed to kill him, too. 4 coffins

The big question that has been on everyone’s mind for an entire year – though Ben and Michael are probably the most plausible, I would probably lean towards Michael at this point – would definitely like to get your thoughts!

Death & Destruction – There is speculation that at least 1 and possibly 3 original characters will reach their demise tomorrow night – that is a relatively high body count even by Lost Season Finale standards – aside from Jin and the casket cadaver I am not really sure who these could be, nor do I care to speculate further. The real question is – if it were up to you, what 3 characters would you get rid of tomorrow night? Dark humor is appreciated!

Spectacular Smooches

Soooooooooo, if nothing else, tomorrow night you will see not only one, but two spectacular kisses during the finale! Who cares about smoke monsters, moving Islands and time travel anyway!

    When Hammer first asked us for the 2 we thought to be in the coffin here was my response.

    When I first saw the newsclipping over last summer, I remember seeing a JO. I first thought it was JOhn Locke. Then they introduced us to Kevin JOhnson. Again JO. I think that name was picked on purpose. So, those would be my two choices, with number 1 being Locke. I don’t think there will be anything left of Michael ( BOOM ) to bury 3 years later.

    Ben is suddenly making a strong comeback in my thinking to be the one in the coffin. We have seen him already off the island in the future. But why would Jack possibly show up at his funeral?

    AS far as the 3 characters I would get rid of they would be
    1. Michael – no more screaming “WAAAAALT” again.
    2. Claire – She looks to be eating herself to death in her “new” state.
    3. Lapidus – It’s getting to be summer time and he might have some LAWNS to MOE.

    The casket has in it, the very individual that was being hunted in FF world by Sayid & Ben.

    The casket contains “The Economist”

    AND

    ‘The Economist’ is

    Richard H. Alpert
    – – – –

    If it were my show, I’d be permanently killing off:
    1) WALT (ghost too)
    2) CLAIRE (ghost too)
    3) MICHAEL (ghost too)

  3. PJSander says:

    I really REALLY don’t want to be spoiled (and we all know I can’t just stay AWAY from here until 8pm Eastern tomorrow night!). So I really REALLY hope that no one will post any of the crap they might be hearing floating around the internet.

    There will be guessing about who is in the casket and which characters are set to die. You know what? I don’t necessarily believe it! I honestly think that D&C leak all kinds of false information to throw us off. Just like the ABC promos (which I avoid until AFTER the episode airs) almost NEVER show what really happens.

    I heard that they even shot three different versions of the coffin, just so that even the CAST and CREW didn’t know who the real inhabitant was.

    I will be interested to hear what others have to speculate, but I can’t even begin to imagine what the frozen donkey wheel is!

    : ) P

  4. Miss Kim says:

    A literal translation using my favorite definitions at the moment:

    Frozen: not permitted to be changed or incapable of being altered

    Donkey: a stupid, silly, or obstinate person

    Wheel: a rotating instrument that Fortune is represented as turning in order to bring about changes or reverses in human affairs.

    A stupid, silly, or obstinate person who is incapable of being altered is faced with a rotating instrument that Fortune is represented as turning in order to bring about changes or reverses in human affairs. Wowzers. Sounds like lots of people on the Island fit this bill. (Locke, Jack, Ben to name a few)

  5. Joy says:

    The three characters I’d LOVE to see DIE!

    Desmond
    Michael
    Kate

    I am so tired of the Desmond character and if he and Penny are the best love story out of Lost then let it please be Romeo and Juliet and may he be dead, dead, dead.

    Never liked Michael and all his yelling, “WWWWWWAAAAAALLLLT, where’s my boy?”

    The character of Kate is just weak as if the writers have no clue what do do.

    HHHMMMMMM…..This is my very first post here, but I have been reading info on here for months. As my name states, I am completely confused!! I am stunned by how in depth a lot of you Lost Addicts are!! You all search very deep into all the storylines and Hammer is fab at ‘speculating’ (although is nearly always spot on!). I have got a MASSIVE 3 days 6 hours to wait before I get the season finale so will probably have to walk round with my hands tied behind my back to stop me peeking on here for answers!!! If we get any!

    All I can say is…RE the speculation of who is in the coffin….I think it is Ben…It would explain why nobody was at the funeral as all his fam and friends were on the island with him. I hope Desmond gets off the freighter in case it does blow up because I think he is a vital character. Not sure about Aaron is the key….Desmond is the key!!

    *****

    I like that guess. However, why would Ben be after Alpert? Maybe because Alpert help Locke rise to become the new “leader?” (example – when he gave Locke Sawyer’s file for Locke to read and have Sawyer kill his father so he could be accepted into the Others.)
    I’m thinking the Economist could be Jacob or Locke because of the whole mention to not liking technology.
    As for who is in the coffin, I think it could be anyone! I want to be surprised though. When we found out that Michael was Ben’s guy on the freighter I was so dissappointed because that’s who everyone thought it was. So I’m trying not to think too much about the coffin.

    Ten more hours!!

  8. Rita says:

    DocH had a good theory about what the frozen donkey wheel might be. Doc? I like Miss Kim’s idea too, pretty plausible. In the end, as with most of the titles, they mean more than one thing. I think we are in for a real treat tonight! I’m not sure who will be in the coffin though, could be just about ANYONE. If I had to guess, I would probably go with Michael or Ben, for the same reasons everyone else thinks so.

  9. erindreg says:

    I always thought that Michael was the one in the casket, but that was before we knew he was on the freighter. The reasoning is that he was off the island, he was hated by the other losties and had little family (plus, going by an alias, his old friends wouldn’t know if was him). Of course, I’ll probably be proven wrong and it’ll be someone none of us ever thought of!
    The three I’d kill off:
    1. Kate
    2. Jack
    3. Michael
    Kate and Jack centric shows are always the worst ones. I’m really getting bored with these two characters, but I know they’ll never die.

    Thanks, if you’re going to be that nice to me…don’t be such a stanger!

  11. At the end of each season, in order to identify the individual that has consistently persona-fide the cheerful community spirit that is shared here, quotes are tastefully compiled from the past twelve months for review. Once reviewed for adherence to weblog guidelines and overall political correctness, judges vote on a weighted-scale, ensuring no single commenter receives preferential bias.

    Here is a sample of the winning entries from the Season 4 “HAGS” Award.

    … Hugo musta spent all that money because if he still had it, why in the hell would he be (in) such a cheap a$$ Asylum.

    … The coffin is filled with a bunch of smuggled abalone. It’s how Widmore makes all that dough.

    … Maybe they just needed some filler bodies to get to the freighter so they would have a few extra people to blow up later…

    … maybe he (Michael) will get blown up and get all scarred up with terrible burns but still live. I’d like that!

    … I want more Charlotte… what a babe, but maybe an evil babe.

    … The spokeslady sure did play a prissy corporate bitch well.

    … I don’t care how bad the Aussie accents get as long as I never hear Charlie sing again. All Aussie accents sound bad to me… like nails on a chalkboard.

    … Hurley stays fat, well, I bet the producers are BEGGING him to lose weight but he’s probably saying, f^#* off, how ya gonna replace me…

    … I happen to think there’s far too much geek talk on here (LostBlog) but I’d never really say it.

    … And the Mother smoking a cigarette in Intensive Care? WTF? What sort of B!tch from Hell is she?

    … Michael just seems to be an idiot all the way around.

    … I love the villains, especially the scary mercenary dude with the armband device…

    … My fantasy scene, mercenary dude meets up in the jungle with Patchy…

    … (Locke) was on his way to being an educated scientist but ran from it because he hated being a nerd in school? Very creative of the writers to add this complexity!

    … Maybe Smokey goes under the island and picks it up and moves it?

    … I don’t mind so much if Charlie is still showing up as long as he does not sing and play that awful Ovation guitar anymore… Who got the guitar? Mercenary Dude would probably rip the string off and use them to strangle someone…

    … And no, orgies are better in the day there because of the mosquitos at night.

    … I don’t remember anyone complaining about mosquitos. I’m the sort of person who always likes the small touches that underline reality.

    … Nice to hear your agreement with me… but I’d have to disagree with you on the idea of watching the women shave their legs. Sun shaving her legs… my idea of a little peek of sensuous heaven. Not true of Freckles, she’s just too macho for me.

    … I may be nit picking over minor plot holes but this Keamy guy has become a real favorite of mine because I love the crazy villains… A Bada$$ on steroids.

    … Run Desmond, run! Even Forrest Gump would know better.

    … The producers should get one of the actors still alive from Gilligan’s Island to do a cameo. Maybe Ginger.

    … Jack is proving to be a first Class a$$hole (as I thought).

    … HELLO PEOPLE, the coffin is child size, thus….not an adult!… but I’m still thinking it could be a baby Polar Bear…

    … I was starting to hate on Hurley…grow some BALLS dude.

    … I think the request to be kind and helpful comes first! … chill out — you are taking yourselves way too seriously and also this show. Don’t take the fun out of it by acting like it’s something Holy. If you don’t like a comment, move on.

  12. (cont.)

    … If you have time to read every comment in detail and retain all of it… then you probably need to get a life. Don’t get thine panties in a twist and scroll forward.

    … Unless there’s some pretty fancy lens work, the casket is not full size, so is the body a little person? I’m all for inclusion so maybe a Little Person will show up soon. Otherwise there’s a real contradiction in the show.

    … Dumba$$ Jack can’t even kill himself without screwing up someone else’s life. Any intelligent Doctor knows how to off themselves with a syringe, they don’t need to make a mess jumping off a bridge. It’s just not kind or helpful to the ambulance staff.

    … Have you ever been to Oxford? I’m sure they care a lot more about brains than haircuts… I’ve seen plenty of freaks at big colleges.

    … Charlotte is one super b!tch, condescending and catty. I would have slapped her silly when she started telling Daniel to shut up. I’d bet she and Miles are a couple as they both have smart mouths and keep secrets. I’d keep her a$$ tied up, she can’t be trusted at all and she is sure to cause trouble.

    … Where in the hell did the French lady go? And how the hell did she survive so long sans cigarettes and Baguettes?

    … there are conversations missing about food and sex. People on an island would be thinking about food all the time like Prisoners in a camp did. And there’s got to be some more sex, Why not a scene where (deleted) gets walked in on?

    … we can have at least a fraction of real life situations on LOST re sex. It’s just that it gets so many other things just right. Less Polar bear and more (bare) asses? Just not Hurley…

    … I thought this was a great episode! Can’t believe so many didn’t like it. Infidels!

    … Goodwin’s wife sure is a harpy, she looks part Klingon. Like too much plastic surgery or pineapple astringent.

    … I WISH People knew the difference between a boat and a SHIP – the Freighter is a SHIP, and Des should know that being in the Military… but maybe the Scots get that backwards the way Brits seem to delight in mispronouncing foreign words…

    … The SPY on the Boat is… Vincent! Remember, you heard it from me first.

    … I TOO would be unhappy to see Michael as Ben’s man on the SHIP… I’d Like to see Michael used as chum instead of chummy to Ben.

    … there’s no real evidence that Juliett is bad… not yet! Except for her taste in men… that was one lame kiss with Jack.

    … they do what they do FOR the island… to protect it and those on it (on their team) including the Polar Bears?

    … All parents are not alike, not all of them would commit 2 ruthless murders of innocent people just for the chance… the CHANCE… that they might get their boy back like Michael did… so quit this idea that he did something noble. Consider that he killed your child to “save” his.

    … posters who want to think that there is no good or bad absolutes are silly…

    … I’m fighting just as dirty as the enemy. But then Sawyer knows the score from being in Prison, you often don’t get a second chance to be wrong in a war…

    … Put a gun to Miles head and tell Frank if he doesn’t talk… Miles brains will be recycled.

    … Your analysis is brilliant. Now, if you can only explain the Polar bear. By “explain the POLAR BEARS”… I meant, WHY is it so FAKE looking…ha. The one that attacked Walt was like shag carpet.

    … I bet Charlie buys it but Desmond snuffs the Looking Glass babes. Maybe they hesitate to shoot Des because he’s so dreamy but don’t falter in shooting Charlie after they heard him singing.

    … that rat Michael who I consider worse than Ben, as he betrayed his own tribe to help the evil Others. Even Forrest Gump knows, Evil is as Evil does. Duh.

    … Still, the beating was good. Wiped the smirk off… but what sort of Surgeon messes up his hands to flail the bad guy? I put my thumbs in to eyes and blind him then stomp him.

    … Bernard sure turned out to be an a$$hole. A dumb one too.

    … but I would have interrogated first. You can always go all Rambo later.

    … And Bernard, had NO WAY to know things were going to turn out ok after his cofession. His spilling the beans could have just as easily led to more Losties getting shot. Weak a$$hole. All he had to do was act like a man.

    … Me thinks there are bigger fish to fry someplace on the crazy island. Hopefully a better band than DriveShaft too.

  13. (cont.)

    … The 4 toed statue is an animal not a human.

    … I was thinking that the diamond stealing couple were going to rise again but I guess not? Too bad, that bad girl might be a good mate for Ben… they deserve each other.

    … Maybe the Slave Ship had practicioners of VooDoo and this is going to turn out to be a Zombie story? Ok, Now I’ve figured it out, The Rescue Ship is really just the Dharma people coming back to clean house!

    … I wish people would stop calling Charlie a musician. Strumming a guitar and singing badly does not make a musician, even with airplay. If I drive my car fast it does not make me a race car driver. If I put on a band-aide, I’m not a Doctor…

    … This show could use a little more romance! One piddly sex scene with Sawyer and Kate… how about some forbidden love? Sayid and Juliet! Albert and Sun! Sun and Claire!

    … The camera work amazes me on this show. How they get so many great shots, and all the more so, as they must have a limited space to shoot on Oahu.

    … I for one do think Juliet is with the Losties for good… I wonder why the hell they gave her the Ho Tag above her a$$…

    … And no, he’s (Jack) not a musician either (get real folks—banging on a piano is just farting around).

    … And boo hoo (not really), poor Charlie is now sleeping with Charlie Tuna. It’s his own fault, never shudda just left Patchy for dead. Bye Bye.

    … heuristics… Geez, you’re on the internet and have to ask what a word means? Don’t be so lazy. And I’m sorry you don’t have a boyfriend (or gf) now but why discourage romance on the island… Stop adopting all those stray cats and go on a date with a person for a change.

    … Maybe Charlie didn’t try to have sex with Claire because he has herpes or worse and didn’t want to spread it. If he’s having sex with groupies from town to town you know he has something. His goofy expressions could indicate many problems.

    … If I were on that island with few distractions and many beautiful women, I’d be thinking about sex all the time. Is there something in the water? MOST people get horny from time to time. Is Sawyer the only one with balls that work?

    … Is there not one SINGLE Gay person on the Island? I’m sure not pushing for some Political Correctness here, but come on, they have almost every other sort of variation. I just hope the Gay person is not a baddie. Also hopefully not a nut like Rosie from The View.

    … About Rosie O’Dumbbell: I was actually rooting for her in the Trump thing, but then she started up with her World Trade Center Conspiracy thing and calling our troops terrorists…

    … Hunting is fun? Never done it, but on the island I’d feel hunted and try to turn it back around. I’d be making my own secret place like Rousseau with booby traps so I could kick back and play with other boobies.

    … As far as Jack swinging, who would he be looking? Tom? Albert? Michael?… uuugh.

    … you seem to take thyself too seriously, it’s a T.V. Show not something Holy. And I might take YOU seroiusly if you could avoid spelling errors…

    … if there be polar bears and black horses and 4 toed, there might as well be Oompas… bring it on.

    … Ok, I’ll stop discussing previews, I do agree they sometimes trick us. I will now go back to being my usual kind and helpful self. My bad.

    Congratulations Bobola.

    In the preview Sawyer is about to kiss Kate in the helicopter. They are losing altitude. I am guessing he jumps out to lessen the weight and save the others, perhaps?

    So we could talk about the show WITHOUT the previews becoming a part of the discussion, OR spoilers for that matter.
