Every episode this season Lost has given us more pieces to the puzzle. Eggtown was definitely one of them. Even though future-Kate was a little dry, they still provided a good episode. By the way, I discuss spoilers because the “mystery” spoilers don’t bother me.
We know that the “Oceanic 6” are Jack, Kate, Hugo, Sayid, Jin and Sun. Also, that the Aaron, and possibly Desmond, also make it off the island but are not part of the “6” (for obvious reasons). In this episode, they tried to misdirect us and indicate that the baby was Kate and Sawyer’s child. There will be those fans who insist this is still true, but of course it is not. It is Aaron, Clare’s son. The reason Jack has problems with the child must have something to do with the circumstances in which Kate gets the baby.
The only new mystery that has me curious is who came up with the cover story (Jack retells during the trial), and why they need to cover it up. To me, that it the important question this season. There must be a strong reason that they keep the secret. We’ve seen that keeping the secret ruins Hugo and Jack. Even in all their despair they still keep the secret. Why?
It was nice to hear in the official podcast a slight confirmation to my theory about the island. If you’ve ever read the “Narnia” books by C.S. Lewis, you’ll know what I mean. Since the beginning of the show, there have been themes and events in Lost that related to Narnia, how it was created, how you travel between realms, and the differences in the passage of time. The producers have already admitted they name new characters as homage to themes in the story. With the new character, Charlotte S. Lewis, and discussions in the official podcast, this parallel is becoming more real.
I really enjoy Lost, and I hope that the show-runners don’t get too generous and start pandering to the fans with too many reveals. I don’t want ‘the journey’ to be ruined.
