does it necessarily follow that anyone who died in the original timeline must die in the alt-timeline? if both timelines merge and that remaining timeline is the only reality, then it does follows that if you were dead once, you’ll probably be dead again. but what if the characters can continue living in the alt timeline with their memories of the original timeline but not necessarily the ultimate fate of their deaths? i guess this would mean they couldn’t remember every single detail (like the small and minor point of them dying), or that if they did, that their futures are not absolutely tied to what happened in the original timeline.
@ lycan – one small favor….Do you think you could switch your icon after the show, since I like going into the show totally blind (I don’t watch the previews, commercials, etc…) If you could for the final month+ that’s be great! Thanks buddy.
Thanx, i think i get it now. All the dead from the original timeline are helping the living in the alternate time line become aware of the ORG timeline. Locke when he was hit looked as if that caused his realization. And when he is sent to Jack……. so true love or near death is the catalist.
the org-timeline dead as messengers/helpers in the alt-timeline makes great sense. i wonder what their role will be once they open the eyes of the living to the org-timeline. will they do their job and then cease to be or do they get to carry on?
but I had the thought that potentially the MiB has been the John Locke in the ALT universe and that the John Locke that is in the original universe is ACTUALLY John Locke just pretending to be the MiB..
When he asked Desmond if he knew who he was and Desmond responded, “Of course, your John Locke.” Locke’s face made a very strange and startled expression..
So, I’m sure everyone noticed that Desmond’s #at Mr Cluck was 42. I’m sitting here watching baseball, and it ocurred to me that not only is 42 the last # in the famed LOST sequence, but is the only universally retired nuber in all of sports (thank you, Jackie Robinson)
Purposefully? Who knows? But as a coincidence, it’s pretty cool!!
^he makes a strange face because he is realizing desmond has no idea who he is.
– definitely appreciate the connection between the dead from original timeline ‘opening the eyes’ of the living in the sideways timeline to their existence in the original timeline. a funny distortion or twist to a part of the show i had grown to hate- the living from the original timeline closing the eyes of the dead. everything has gone through the looking glass…
