So, as we all know, tonight’s episode is centered about my beloved, Richard Alpert.
I find Richard to be such a fascinating character (and a gorgeous one) and there is just so much I wish to know about him! These are the questions I would love to see answered:
- How old is he?
- Where did he come from?
- Why did Jacob allow for him to never age?
- What is the point of him never aging?
- Who brought him to the island?
- What is his purpose on the island?
- Why can’t he take Jacob place and protect the island?
- Does he really know everything?
- What brand eyeliner does he use?
I would also like to point out that the name of tonight’s episode is Ab Aeterno, which is Latin for “since the beginning of time.” Perhaps, Richard has been on the island since the beginning of time… or at least since the beginning of this time of “war” on the island?
I’m really hoping these questions, as well as all the rest, will really begin to get answered! We’re running out of time!
