Season 6 Hieroglyphics Decoded

A new poster promoting Lost’s sixth and final season recently surfaced on the Internet—and in addition to a line up of the cast, both past and present, it contains some hieroglyphics to consider. Popular Mechanics sent the poster to Dr. James Allen, Wilbour Professor of Egyptology and Chair of Egyptology and Ancient Western Asian Studies at Brown University—the man who gave the first indication that the mysterious four-toed statue was not Anubis, as many had assumed, but Taweret, the half-hippo, half-croc Egyptian goddess who protected mothers and infants. Allen had this to say about the poster: The hieroglyphs spell out two Egyptian words, meaning ‘Who is the guide?’ or ‘Who is the leader?

I think this is an interesting find because I feel like this is the season in which all the Losties will come together for one common purpose.  What is this common purpose?  To save the island?  To save the lives that have already been lost?  Who knows.  But it is clear that they are in desperate need of a true leader.

Early on, Jack became the de facto leader.  But as the seasons progressed, Jack’s role as leader faded away and Locke began to gather more followers.  Now that Locke is “dead” and Jack is a little off his rocker who do you think will take the role as the leader? Who do you think will bring salvation to the island and its inhabitants? Take the poll!
