Jacob appears to Hurley and tells him to get
a pen, and bring Jack - they're going to break out of The Temple.
In the process, Mr Samurai attempts to stop Hurley
but Jacob (who only Hurley can see) tells him to tell Mr Samurai
that he's a "candidate" and he can do what he
wants. This works. Running in to Kate along the way - who is on a mission
to find Claire, they end up at the Old Magic
Lighthouse (that no one has seen up until now) where everyone's names are
at certain degree bearings - most have been crossed
out - and at each of these degrees the mirrors in the tower reflect
certain locations (not the vast Pacific Ocean
you'd think it would if this were "just a damned island.") Jacob tells
that "someone's coming to The Island" and to
change the Lighthouse's reflection to 108 degrees. As he does this Jack
sees the names, sees that at 23 degrees is the
name SHEPHARD so he yells at Hurley to change it to 23 - it reflects
Jack's childhood home - where is mother still
lives. He gets pissy, demands to see Jacob. Hurley tells him dead people
do what they want, so Jack smashes the mirrors
- no more Magic Lighthouse. At 108 degrees is the name WALLACE crossed
Claire has gone completely Rousseau, goes Lizzy
Borden on an Other, sews up Jin's leg from being in a bear trap,
and says if Kate has been raising Aaron for the
last three years, she's going to kill her. She has a gun, so Jin plays
instead of saying - "YOU LEFT AARON AND DISAPPEARED
INTO THE JUNGLE BITCH. WTF? You're lucky
a polar bear didn't eat him!!"
Oh yeah - MIB/FLocke is now Claire's "Friend."
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!
Christian Shephard's body is still missing, but
they have the funeral anyway. We meet Jack's son David (who has
extraordinary blue eyes - who is his mother that
Jack is divorced from? Juliet?) and find out they have a strained
relationship. Mom can't find Christian's will,
so Jack comes over to help. They find it, and Mom says, "Jack have you
ever heard of a Claire Littleton?" So Dad was
an international womanizer in Atlantis Timeline as well. David goes missing,
and Jack discovers that he's at an audition for
a the Williams Music Academy, so he races and just makes it to hear David's
amazing performance. Mr Samurai is also there
with his son and says to Jack, "Your son has a gift." Jack and David have
a nice moment that jack and Christian never had.
Interesting that Jack in Atlantis Timeline had
his appendix out when he was "7 or 8 years old" - if they're playing Jack
around 40 yrs old in 2004 (Mathew Fox was born
in 1966 - going into my theory that they're playing the characters around
the same age as the actors portraying them),
that would mean he "collapsed" at about the same time the bomb was detonated
in 1977 in Timeline A.
ALSO - KWAN = 42 = The ANSWER to Life, the Universe,
and EVERYTHING. (I miss Douglas Adams.)
Thought: The island didn't necessarily sink in
1977 (although I think that's the easiest choice for the sake of the script),
but could have sunk before or after that. Hopefully
we'll find out.
What we do know (so far) is, in Atlantis Timeline
the following is true:
The island is underwater, (and could have sunk
any time up until Desmond is in a position to board Oceanic 815),
therefore Desmond isn't in the Swan station to
push the button, resulting in Oceanic 815 landing safely in 2004 at LAX.
The result of that is:
- Rose has cancer because she never made it to
the island to heal. (I called this!)
- Charlie is alive because he was never on the
island to drown.
- Widmore's freighter never goes to the island
(that isn't there) delivering Daniel, Charlotte, Miles, and Frank. Desmond
has his time skipping episode talking to Eloise,
or calling Penny, or meeting Charlie in London... Daniel AND Locke are
on the island to start time skipping when Ben
moves the Magic Donkey Wheel that ends up killing Charlotte. Daniel therefore
never meets his mother in the past, nor finds
the nuke and never tells The Others to bury it. (That doesn't mean they
in Atlantis Timeline - it just means that Daniel
never told them to, therefore it could have sunk the island anytime after
underwater) Dharmaville was built.) Locke never
skips to the past meeting Richard and giving him back his compass that
had given him in the present when he dug out
the bullet out of John's leg during the Time Skipping. So Richard never
and never went to the mainland three times to
see if he was "special."
If the island sunk in 1977 the following is also
- Jacob likely never met with any of the "Candidates"
on the mainland - because he is either dead - or there is no reason to
protect the island as it's at the bottom of the
- The numbers weren't broadcasting in 1988 when
Rousseau's team heard them causing their shipwreck - they could all be
live and well. And Leonard (at Santa Rosa Mental
Hospital) never heard them either when he was in the Navy, so Hurley
never developed a fear of them.
- It also likely killed everyone on the island.
Meaning Widmore, Eloise, etc..... including Ben unless for some reason
back at Dharma camp in time to get on the evacuating
If the island sunk after 1977:
- (Perhaps as a result of The Incident making
it worse than in Timeline A where they just built the Swan Hatch, there
possibility everyone might have been evacuated
off in time and might be still alive if the bomb got buried by someone
and was found, and was detonated on purpose.
OR - if the island sank before 11977 as a result
of Daniel never time skipping and finding the nuke (sort of creating a
2nd time fork perhaps...):
- There is a possibility the island was evacuated
before the nuke went off/was detonated and almost everyone who might have
killed if the island sunk in 1977, might still
The point is, the most casualties come from the
sinking of the island at the time of detonation in 1977
- which could be important to who we actually
get to see in Atlantis Timeline.
I just realized something!!! 108 degrees in the
lighthouse/108 = Wallace/ PUSHING THE BUTTON EVERY 108 MINUTES!
Not sure if that matters but thought I would
point that out. Oh, and don't forget that the numbers added up = 108.
- Who is Wallace?
- What did Eloise mean when she said to Desmond,
"The Island isn't finished with you." ?
- What is up with The Dharma Initiative??? I'd
like to know in both timelines - in Timeline A - they were still air-dropping
for the Swan hatch until Desmond turned the failsafe
key nuking the Swan station, and Locke pressed 77 blowing up the Flame
So, did they just close up shop on the
mainland? And in Atlantis Timeline, do they simply not exist?
