Guys, I’ve KIND OF failed you. Last night, I had far too many glasses of Sauvignon Blanc with my friend Amber and made friends with some Brits only to arrive home not very prepared to watch LOST at 10pm. I did watch, but I was a bit tipsy AND didn’t have a chance to watch it twice, as I usually like to do. I plan to rewatch it tonight. That said, however, I did notice a few things:
Bella: “How long have you been 17?”
Edward: “A while.”
I think Ellie is a younger Ms. Hawking and I think (and I’m surely not alone here) that she marries Widmore and has Daniel Faraday with him.
WIDMORE is Daniel’s benefactor Great Expectations style. It’s also pretty wild that he’s an Other.
Charlie is the name of Desmond’s baby. Interesting that it’s the name of Charles Widmore (the man who went to great lengths to keep star-crossed lovers Penny and Des apart) and Charlie Pace (the man who died so that they could be together).
Thank you, LOST, for reaffirming that Latin is the “language of the enlightened.” As a Latin scholar, I’ve always thought as much.
My brother pointed out a painting of a polar bear that said “Namaste” hanging in Widmore’s office when Desmond went to speak with him. It doesn’t get more Dharma Inish than that, does it?
