Another Lost Theory – Time Displacement | Reader Submission

Just got this comment posted in another theory post we had and I thought it deserved its own post. It’s kind of twisted and confusing but seems like it could be very likely.

I read one show reviewers theory of “Lost” arguing that there is time displacement between the island and the rest of the world, and the season finale eerily fit this theory perfectly.

What that would mean is, I think, this: the 815 survivors are living in December 2004, three months after the crash, but in the outside world it’s 2007. That transmission by Charlie to Penny was in December 2004, and at that point Penny had no idea where to look for Desmond. But off the island 3 more years have passed, and Penny sent a search party to the area based on the nearly 3-year old contact with Charlie.

So Penny DID send the boat, but in 2007, not in December 2004 when Charlie talked to her.

Confused? Yeah, it can be confusing, but the time displacement theory I read that I base this on explained itself quite well, and what I just explained would fit perfectly. I just wish I would have bookmarked the link because I haven’t been able to find it again!

If you think about it, it could explain how Ben knows everything about all the Losties and how he could manipulate them int al getting on that plane…


Why Charlie Died….According to Lindelof (Lost Producer)

Not Penny’s BoatThere is an article over on YahooTV with an interview of Damon Lindelof, and the brunt of the conversation turns to “Why Charlie had to die!” Here’s the interesting part regarding Charlie:

You’re a bastard for killing Charlie

Lindelof: [Laughs.] True.

Can we talk about that? ‘Cause, oh my god, you killed Charlie, and we fans need to know why.

Lindelof: Yes, of course. Dominic, Carlton and I, and all the writers, really felt that when Charlie threw his Virgin Mary statues into the water last year, that was the end of his addiction arc. We weren’t interested in revisiting it and having him bounce between being drunk and being sober, so we began to really struggle with the idea of what was Charlie to play now. How was he going to evolve as a character?

Lindelof:At the very same time, we were starting to think about what the effect of the second season finale was going to be, with Desmond turning the fail-safe key. And we didn’t want to kill off Desmond, but because this fail-safe key existed as sort of a last resort, we wanted there to be really severe ramifications for Desmond turning it. We didn’t want him to get a free pass. And we felt that it would be cool if it involved time travel in some way. But instead of doing sort of a traditional time travel and creating paradoxes and all that stuff, we just did [the episode] “Flashes Before Your Eyes.” When that experience ended, we wanted him to be able to see the future, and we thought it would be cool if [his visions] always kind of related to Charlie and Charlie’s death, as opposed to seeing 50 different things. That way, he would struggle all season with the idea of whether or not Charlie’s death was inevitable.

The Penelope and Naomi Connection….

PenelopeOne thing I forgot to mention in my season 3 finale post was the connection or lack of connection between Penelope (Desmonds’ Girl), Naomi, the parachute girl and the boat (if there is one).

When Charlie was talking to Penny, she said “what boat?” meaning she was not connected to Naomi’s boat like Naomi has told our losties. This raises so many questions I’m not even sure where to start, but I’ll try:

1. If Penelope doesn’t know about the boat, whose boat is it?
2. Is there really a boat? Or is Naomi lying?
3. If Penny doesn’t know Naomi, how and why does Naomi have a picture of Desmond and Penny with her?

I really am not sure what to think of the connection, but I’d love to hear what you all think about the Penny / Naomi / Boat connection in the comments below

Lost Season 3 Finale QUESTIONS and ANSWERS

Lost Season 3 finale just ended and naturally there are more questions than answers but this is what I noticed.

Jack with a Beard is after they got back from the Island. What time period we do not know.

Whose Funeral was that where no one was attending? Ben?

Jack flies a lot so he can be in a plane crash again. Why does he want back on the island?

Newspaper with funeral ad. My guess is that its Ben’s funeral

Bernard is a little punkass

Eye patch man mentions that the girls should be on assignment in Canada, what was that about? Was it the people at the end of Season 2?

The Beach Boy Good Vibations sequence, if i heard her correctly was 545876554360611

Alex meets Reaseau! We all knew she was the mom.

Charlie is a moron, why didn’t he go outside the hatch and THAN close the door?

Where is Penelope?

Who is coming to save them?

Are they REALLY off the island?

Anyone have anymore questions or comments?

ABC details final three “Lost” seasons

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – ABC has set an end date for “Lost.”

The Emmy-winning adventure series will run for 48 more episodes over three seasons. Each season will consist of 16 episodes, which will air uninterrupted.

“Lost” executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, who have been vocal about setting up an endgame for the show, have signed on to stay for the remainder of the series’ run. Their separate new eight-figure deals with “Lost” producer ABC TV Studio include their services on the show as well as multiyear development pacts set to kick in when “Lost” bows out during the 2009-10 season.

“Due to the unique nature of ‘Lost,’ we knew it would require an end date to keep the integrity and strength of the show consistent throughout and to give the audience the payoff they deserve,” ABC Entertainment president Stephen McPherson said.

Lindelof said having the end point in sight was “incredibly liberating. Like we’ve been running a marathon and we actually know where the finish line is for the first time.”

Lindelof and Cuse said they’ve had “a road map for the series with all the major mythological milestones and the ending in place” for a while.

“What we didn’t know was how long we had to play the story out,” Cuse said. “By defining the endpoint we can now really map out the rest of the series in confidence.”

There will be some puzzle play, too.

“We sort of view “Lost” as a mosaic,” Cuse said. “Now there are only 48 more tiles that go into that mosaic, and we’re figuring out, along with all the other writers, exactly where they all go.”

In January, Lindelof and Cuse said that they envisioned the endpoint for “Lost” around episode 100. The agreement with ABC will bring the total number of episodes to 120.

Lindelof wrote the pilot for “Lost” with fellow executive producer J.J. Abrams, and Cuse joined the series in October 2004 shortly after the show debuted to big numbers.

In addition to its instant commercial success and large following, “Lost” has enjoyed strong critical acclaim, capped by a best drama series Emmy in 2005 and best drama series Golden Globe in 2006.

While the show’s ratings have softened this season — it is averaging 15.1 million viewers to date — it is the most recorded show on TV, gaining 18% more viewers through DVR viewing. It is also a popular draw for streaming replays on, iTunes downloads and DVDs.
