LOST in Translation: Major Season 6 Spoilers

HERE BE SPOILERS
READ AT YOUR OWN RISK

The premiere LOST Fan Site is a little place called DarkUFO. Dark has access to some terrific insider information and his confidential informants never cease to thrill and entertain the LOST devoted with insights, snippets, and spoilers often parceled out throughout the various seasons we find ourselves in.

As a sort of Christmas present to the LOST Faithful a game of Hangman was offered up with a slow procession of letters revealed at calculated intervals. Now that the puzzle has been revealed in full, it’s time to give it a closer look.

A CHESS GAME IS AN APT ANALOGY AS WHITE AND BLACK MANIPULATE THE PAWNS. THE EYELINED ONE IS TORN, AS “SAMUEL” AIDS HIM, BUT FOR A PRICE.

White and Black are obviously Jacob and MIB, two men locked in some kind of philosophical conflict and their weapons are the survivors of Flight 815, among others. “Samuel” is code for MIB and it appears based on this spoiler that he and Richard have a connection. Other spoilers have placed them both on the Black Rock, so it will be interesting to see what dilemma befalls our unaging and enigmatic friend that he would be forced to turn to MIB for aid.

ALDO, DOGEN, MARTIN, LENNON, AND OMAR ARE NOT LONG FOR THIS WORLD. SOME FALL TO A TRAINED SOLDIER WHILE OTHERS DISCOVER THEIR DARK SIDES FOR THE FIRST TIME.

The “trained soldier” is a reference to Sayid. Nice to know that he’ll be returning true-to form in season 6. As to the “others discovering their dark sides”, I believe this is a reference to the survivors being drawn into the conflict and taking sides in the Jacob/MIB conflict.

OTHERS THOUGHT GONE REAPPEAR, INCLUDING AN ATTENDANT AND TWO YOUNGSTERS.

Ah, the return of Cindy the Flight Attendant and the two kids, Zach and Emma.

DISCOVERIES ARE MADE. JONATHAN ACCOMPANIED BY JIM FORD READ THE CRUCIAL WRITING ON THE WALL, LITERALLY. THE LATTER FROM ABOVE STUMBLES ONTO A MACABRE PILE, “KENDALL” AND A TRAP SPRUNG SEVERAL TIMES.

John Locke and Sawyer, together again… and they are to discover the heart of the matter. I assume the “macabre pile” to be a reference to the Dharma Massacre pit, filled with the remains of Sawyers’ old friends.  The “writing on the wall” will reveal the “trap”, which is that Jacob and MIB’s conflict has brought people to this island for centuries to take part in their little war. Could “Kendall” be the missing part of the Trimurti? Is she the Creator? Is she the “mother” to these two warring “brothers”? Could she be the physical embodiment of Tawaret herself?

LANDING BRINGS MIXED BLESSINGS. CHRISTIAN’S A GRANDFATHER, A CHANCE ROMANTIC DATE ISN’T REALLY BY CHANCE AT ALL, AND ALTHOUGH MANY OLD FRIENDS CROSS PATHS, NORWOOD IS NOT TO BE A LOCKE NOR JAZEEM A JARRAH.

As expected, the Alternate Reality in which the Survivors of 815 actually make it to LAX does not exactly mean that they all live happily ever after. Helen and John Locke do not get their happy ending, and neither do Nadia and Sayid. The more interesting part of the above spoiler pertains to Christian Sheppard. We already know he’s a grandfather via Claire and Aaron, but this seems to refer to Jack becoming a father. As has been hinted at in other spoilers, the AltReality Jack seems to have a kid that he will visit, but I think it goes deeper than that. I believe that Kate was pregnant when they returned to the Island by way of Ajira 316, that she was Claire’s proxy on that flight. It makes one wonder what the ramifications of this will be.

AND SOMEWHERE, LITTLETON KILLS KATE… ALMOST.

Looks like Claire and Kate are destined to have a serious misunderstanding.

BUT WHOSE SIDE IS ANYONE REALLY ON?

Good question. AltReality aside, the Jacob/MIB conflict is going to heat up and the Survivors are going to choose sides and be at war with one another. Does anyone doubt that this is going to be one epic endgame? In 40 days from now we’ll find out…
