There's No Place Like Home
What we Learned
Wow. Time travel, space relocation, dead people, dramatic rescue, dramatic reunion, dramatic death and seeing a brother in another life. It all happened. With 2 seasons left until LOST is found, we're starting to see the finish line -- with a few loose ends that may not be that significant -- and Season 4 ended as it bang, astoundingly, breath-takingly confusing, mind-numbing and addictively awesome. So, I'm trying to formulate a theory, but I think I'll just look at the new viral site.
- Locke is the rightful heir of the island (Ben was merely his placeholder -- his brothers keeper if you will). There's a very Jacob and Esau, birthright feel to Ben and John.
- Richard never ages, though, seems to have no real power
- Penny reunites with Desmond -- obviously she's battling her father
- The island can move -- between space and time. Though ... what did Ben do (he didn't follow the directions; he seems to have manually overrode the mechanism that moved/transported objects)
- Sun, with her newfound power, finds Widmore and seems to want to partner with him (to do what?)
What we don't know
- What did you all think?
- Was Hurely really playing chess with Mr. Eko?
- Why did Claire warn Kate not to go back?
- Why was Locke finding the survivors, and pleading with them to go back (and why did he leave, and how did he die?)
- Is Christian Shepherd a literal "shepherd" -- taking people back to their "true' time and place?
- Is Jin really dead?
- Where did the island go!?
- Will Ben be able to lead them back?
I know I missed a ton, but -- any thoughts out there?
