FI hadn't seen last weeks so we also watch all three hours.... SO GOOD!! OMG I can't believe it...I felt really bad for Sun too. Do you think next season is going to be them back at the island?!

I'm gonna start discussing...LOL. Sun's reaction made me go nuts, I can't deal with hearing a woman scream like that. I felt so awful for her. Desmond-Penny and Jin-Sun are my favorite couples. I love them and always want them to be together and happy. LOL.

 

Okay so when I heard the name Jeremy Benthem I thought back to college (I was a philosophy, politics major) and he was the guy who invented utilitarianism. The greatest good for the greatest amount of people. He was the guy who believed that it was okay to sacrifice an innocent life as long as more people would be saved. Def makes sense to me. But now my question is which is his real name and which is the alias?

 

When does Lost come back on next season? Sept? Oct?

I want to know who those people are on the island that don't age. Also, what happened to the raft that had that scientist on it?

 

I am excited about the next season.

 

Poor Jack, I felt so bad when he said Sun blamed him for Jim's death.

I am so happy for Desmond and Penny... but I worry about next season because Ben will likely go after Penny because she's Mr. Whidmore's daughter!

 

I am worried about at the end that Sun tipped Mr. Whidmore off to there being more survivors... eeek...

 

How awesome was the chemistry between Kate and Sawyer as he gave her that kiss before jumping out of the helicopter?

 

I can't wait until next season!

Those first 10 minutes of last nights episode were awesome and the entire episode got me so anxious for next season. WOW!

 

What worries me is that Ben said ALL of them must go back. Do you think this is a ploy to find out where Desmond is and therefore seek out Penny? AHH that would be horrible.

 

I need to read up on some spoilers and theories i feel as if there was too much info to process last night. My Dh thinks I'm way too obsessed with this show. i am wink.gif

Guys I just wanted to post this. Its not a lost theory its just a small biography of Jeremy Bentham for those of you that are interested.

 

Also, Bentham who believed in the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of people was later on criticized b/c Darwinism kind of made his theories obsolete.

 

Another interesting this is that this commentary states that Bentham can be compared to William Goodwin another philospher. Remember there was an other named Goodwin? The one that Juliette fell in love with? I think that's interesting. William Goodwin (the philsopher) and Jeremy Bentham (the philosopher) believed in the good of the people. If you recall Goodwin (the character) wanted Ana Lucia to become part of the others. He had faith but Ben didn't. John Locke also believes in the good of people. Locke the philosopher was the one who believed in "tabula rasa" the clean slate. People are born with a clean slate and can change their actions.

 

 

I found this quote about Jeremy Bentham (the philsopher) which I thought was interesting:

 

"There have been many, through the years, that envisaged a perfect and well ordered society;Bentham was one, and he felt it might be achieved through legislation. Jeremy Bentham like many had an optimistic view that the nature of man might be changed. As Hazlitt observed, "Miracles never cease, to be sure; but they are not to be had wholesale, or to order."

 

*Btw sorry if I'm boring people with philosphy but I like the nerdy aspect of the show.

A couple of other things:

 

1. If they all need to go back that means Aaron needs to go back as well. But in Kate's dream Claire told her to never take Aaron back. I don't get the whole Aaron thing. If Aaron is to be raised by no one but Claire, and claire is dead then now what? And why wouldn't they want Aaron on the island? If he is related to Christian Shepard (grandson) then wouldn't they want him on the island to keep whatever it is that their doing there going?

 

2. When Christian Shepard appeared to Michael and said "You can go now" did he mean go as in "die"? As in your work here is done (meaning your work here on earth?)

 

3. Daniel (the mathematician) tried to get Charlotte to leave with him. She told him "Would you believe me if I told you I was looking for the place I was born?" I think Charlotte was born on the island. I think its possible she was the little girl that played with Ben in school. Remember the little girl from the Dharma Initiative school? Hmmm I'm trying to remember if she had red hair.

 

4. Do you think dead characters really appear to Hurley and he has some special power and only he can see them or do you think he is just crazy? Remember he was able to see Jacob's cabin which means he must have some kind of special power.

 

5. Where did Daniel (the mathematician) and the other people on the raft go?Also, Daniel had made a couple of trips and brought some people back to the freighter. What happened to all those people on the freighter did they just die?

 

6. How did Miles know that Charlotte had been on the island before? I know he can hear dead people but can he also hear living people's thoughts? Why did Miles want to stay on the island?

I like the nerdy aspect too Glenda, no worries.

 

That whole Claire appearing in Kate's dream FREAKED ME OUT. I loved it and in some sick way i wish it wasn't a dream. For some reason I don't think Claire is dead. If she was dead wouldn't they have shown her death? Just makes me suspicious.

 

I wonder how Charlotte, Miles and Dan all got off the island too Glenda. Those were flash forwards previously shown on the 3 of them, right? Therefore they left the island. I like your theory about Ben & Charlotte being childhood friends. Very interesting.

 

After watching last nights episode i am convinced JIN is ALIVE! He was way to smart to stay on that damn boat knowing it was about to blow up. I just wonder where he went?

 

In a weird sense I do think Christian is Jacob. I think Jacob, Ben & Richard all used the time machine to go back and forth from the island and somehow Jacob/Christian got killed off the island. He was then brought back to the island via Oceanic 8165(?) in the casket along with the rest of the gang. Meh- perhaps it's too far fetched but my brain goes into overdrive when it comes to this show.

I also think Jin is alive. I am never giving up hope on him. He just seems like a survivor. He is street smart so I truly believe that if anyone would survive it would be him.

 

I don't know if those scenes of the three of them (Daniel, Charlotte & Miles) were flash forwards. Are you referring to the scenes where we see their background? B/c I think those scenes were flashbacks. I don't remember seeing any flashforward scenes of them.
