I've been rewatching the series in anticipaton of this, and I'm almost to the middle of Season 5. I'm reliving the "What happened, happened" debate at this point, and I still don't have a good definitive idea about Christian, Richard Alpert, or The Smoke Monster. There is SO much I'd forgotten, and even trying to think ahead to Jacob/anti-Jacob and the mysterious resistance cult, I can't remember some of the important details of what's about to happen in each episode, so there're still surprises in a way. I think it'll be fun to see if I still agree with what 2009-me thought.

i really hope this show comes through...it's either going to end up being the best ever, or the biggest let down ever.

It looks like there is going to be some sort of recap thing this Saturday, Jan 9 at 2:30 PM on ABC.

"Episode Synopsis: A "Lost" primer unreels highlights from the acclaimed drama's first five seasons and explores its impact on popular culture. The final season of "Lost" is scheduled to begin Feb. 2, 2010. Original Air Date: Jan 9, 2010"

I'm down to the last couple of episodes in Season 5, and I think I figured something out. This is not a confirmed spoiler about the upcoming season, but if you have yet to watch up to this point, it could spoil plenty and will probably make very little sense. Also, why would you be interested in this thread? Anyway, here goes: I think the reason Sun didn't go back in time is because she's the only one that was "supposed to" leave the island. If she'd stayed for the rest of her pregnancy, she would've died, and therefore she wouldn't have had any role in the island's events. The rest of the Oceanic 6 were sent back in time to join the other Losties because it's where they would've been if they hadn't left the island. This reinforces the "What Happened, Happened" Theory, in that they had always played a pivotal role in the Dharma incidents, though they wouldn't have realized it.
It would've been crucial for all of the players to arrive when they did to ensure that certain events played out the way they already had once before. We're led to assume that this is to avoid a destructive paradox, but Farraday realized at the last moment that this wasn't the case. In the episode where Little Ben was dying, we saw several of the Oceanic 6 make pivotal decisions that would inadvertently and inexorably lead to cementing Ben's corruption. Their free will, ironically, was being influenced by what they thought they knew of what was going to (or had already) happened.

We would eventually see that the seemingly-resurrected John Locke was really the one responsible for convincing everyone that it was necessary for all the players to return and ensure that certain events would happen, and he even told the Old John Locke (by way of Richard) that he had to die, so that he could replace him. It's not destiny, but his agenda.

Interesting idea, I just always thought that Sun did not go back in time because she was the only one that Lock did not visit, as he did Jack, Hurly, Kate and Sayid. I guess Lock did see Ben but he did not seek him out, so I'm not sure about that. more will be revealed :think:

It's too hard for me to make that distinction, since both times through now, I've essentially watched the seasons back-to-back. Season 1 is the most tedious to get through the second time around, by far, but I still consider it absolutely necessary to capture the perspective properly. I like the later seasons better, but they wouldn't have been able to work as well without a thorough familiarity with the earlier (the heavy-handed "cameos" of dead characters wouldn't have been as funny, for example).

There is a potential hole in my theory, given the fact that women were able to give birth in the era where they eventually settled. I think the real confirmation, however, will be whatever role Sun has to play in "the present." I still have to rewatch the Season 5 finale to refresh my memory on what exactly she did near the end. I'm pretty sure about the rest, though. I think I know the endgame too, and why the accident would've been necessary, but I'm going to wait a while before rehashing all of that.

Thank God. I was going to have to join the teabaggers. :pray:

Seriously, though, I know I've Lost it (LOLOLOLOMG) because it actually took this comment to make me realize a fairly basic error in my thinking:

Give it a rest. ABC certainly knows when this address is given and they are the ones to be blamed for scheduling their show at this time. … Almost like they want controversy. Could they be the enemy?......
:wall: :doh: :oops:

Having watched the Season 5 Finale again, I'm pretty sure that the bomb will have changed the incident, thus thwarting Anti-Jacob's plot to kill Jacob until the next iteration. They'll probably jump to a view of the main characters' lives as they would've been happening if the plane had reached its destination safely. The plot "camera" will zoom out even further so that we're given a clearer view of Jacob and Anti-Jacob pulling strings. That's my best guess, anyway.
