Ab Aeterno

March 30, 2010

By Katelyn

Despite my love for Richard, Ab Aeterno was hands down the best episode so far this season!

Before this episode aired, I compiled a list of questions I hoped would be answered about Richard.  And most of them where…

  • How old is he?
    • I’m not exactly sure how old he is but he has been on the island since 1867, which means he has been on the island for 140 years.
  • Where did he come from?
    • Ricardo originally lived on Tenerife; part of the Canary Islands
  • Why did Jacob allow for him to never age?
    • Jacob asks Richard if there is anything he can do for him and Richard says he wants his wife back.  When Jacob admits he cannot bring his wife back from the dead, Richard then asks to be absolved of his sins so he won’t go to Hell.  Jacob says he cannot do that either.  So Richard then asks to be grated an eternal life so he can never die and go to Hell.
  • Who brought him to the island?
    • Jacob brought him to the island via the Black Rock to prove to the Man in Black that people can be good by nature.
  • What is his purpose on the island?
    • Richard’s purpose on the island is to be Jacob’s representative, an intermediary to the people Jacob brings to the island.
  • Why can’t he take Jacob place and protect the island?
    • It doesn’t seem like Richard is in the running to become Jacobs successor.  He was probably meant to continue his representative role.
  • Does he really know everything?
    • According to Ilana, Richard knows what to do next because Jacob told her so.  However, Richard begs to differ.
  • What brand eyeliner does he use?

Who We Want to See (and who we don’t want to see) in the Final Season

January 31, 2010

By Annie

There are so many rumors, speculation, and announcements about which of our favorite Losties will appear (in many cases this means re-appear) in Lost’s sixth and final season. There are a few obvious favorites and some who we don’t like so much. But sometimes it can be hard to keep track of all the Lost talk. So here’s a short summary of who we want to see, don’t want to see, and who has been confirmed as appearing in the final season of Lost.

1. Charlie Pace

If you read this blog at all, you should know that we love him and obviously want to see him back in Season 6. His tragic but triumphant death scene left us wanting to see as much of Charlie as possible (and aside from a few Desmond flashbacks and Hurley hallucinations, we’ve been seriously disappointed). Luckily, we’ll be seeing more of him this year. Dominic Monaghan is scheduled to appear in four episodes in Season 6.

2. Claire Littleton

What happened to this girl? One day she was a new mother struggling to care for her son on a deserted island, and the next day she takes off to hang out in a weird cabin with her estranged (and supposedly dead) father. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of Claire, she really needs to come back this season just so we can find out where she’s been. Luckily, Emilie de Ravin will be returning to Lost in Season 6.

3. Daniel Faraday

Who doesn’t love this guy? Yep, Jeremy Davies is back, and so is our favorite physicist!

4. Boone Carlyle

Boone was “a sacrifice that the island demanded,” but that doesn’t mean that he can’t return as a weird ghost/apparition/whatever. Apparently the producers agree, since Ian Somerhalder and his eyebrows will be returning in Season 6 for several episodes.

5. Shannon Rutherford

This annoying blonde overstayed her welcome in the first two seasons if you ask me. All the whining and complaining was just a bit much for me, and I’d really rather not have to deal with it in Season 6. Luckily, Maggie Grace has a busy schedule and has not been able to confirm her appearance.

6. Charlotte Lewis

Oh Charlotte, your eyes creep me out and your accent is annoying. Furthermore, you take up way too much of Daniel Faraday’s attention. I’d rather not see you in Season 6, but unfortunately I’ll have to. Rebecca Mader has confirmed her appearance.

7. Libby Smith

One of the biggest questions I want to see answered in the final season is what happened with Libby in the mental hospital. She never had any flashback episodes, so the only time we saw her there was through Hurley. Now it’s time for some answers. And Cynthia Watros is returning to Lost, so hopefully we’ll get some backstory.

8. Michael Dawson

Michael has had a lot of ups and downs throughout the last five seasons. My feelings about him are mixed, and I’m sure many of you feel the same way. But Harold Perrineau is returning in Season 6, so we’ll be seeing more of Michael.

Status: Confirmed

9. Walt Lloyd

Walt is “special.” We don’t know why he is special or what makes him special, but I’d really like to find that out. Producers have stated that they would like to bring Walt back, but they are working on a way to overcome how much Malcolm David Kelley has grown since his last appearance.
