After watching episode 17 “In Translation” form season 1, where it is revealed to Jin that Sun can speak English and has been hiding it from him, I’m wondering what chance there is that Jin will learn English too. As we have now seen , up to the end of season 3, he has started to learn a few basic words, and seems to be able to communicate on a relatively basic level with the rest of the losties. But what about in the future. I would say there is a pretty good chance that we will see a Jin/Sun flash-forward early in season 4, so its not too far fetched to believe that Jin will have learnt English since getting off the island, especially if they move to America to “start over”.
“There’s really one significant missing piece to Libby’s story. How did she get from A to B — from Desmond to the mental institution? We know the answer to that question, but the only way to tell that story is through another character’s flashback, and that character would have to be another character on the show who is not among the beach dwellers.” – Damon Lindelof.
My thought is that this character could be Penny. And that Libby ends up in the mental institute after having a break down when Desmond goes missing in the boat that she gave him. If that alone doesn’t tip her over the edge then maybe Penny seeks out Libby and blames her for Desmond’s disappearance. Hopefully this is something that we will find out in season 4, which Carlton Cuse has hinted at.
My craving for LOST has gotten the better of me, I know that Season 4 is only about 7 weeks away, but I need my fix of weirdness. For this reason I’ve started right back at the start, season 1 episode 1, and I’m going to try and get through all of the first three season before the 4th of February rolls around.
In the process of re-watching I’m going to make note of somethings I have noticed, things that go unanswered and generally just some theories. Since the end of season 1 I have wanted to try and put together a resource on LOST which would all the bits that I find interesting but due to time (or lack of) I’d never managed to get it any further than just being an idea. While this log isn’t really the ‘resource’ that I had originally wanted to build it should be enough to satisfy my needs…for the moment.
It is possible that once season 4 starts I might start to go into greater detail than just posting tidbits here and there. Its probably fair to say as well that there won’t be much from the first season which is still completely unanswered and as I progress through the episodes the number of “points of interest” will become greater as will the theories.
Very little is know about season 4 with the producers going into radio silence about what we might expect. However as always the internet is rife with rumours and theories. Things like there will be flashbacks and flashforwards, characters will return, characters will die. In other words nothing ground breaking, but enough to keep me interested. As a result of the writers strike it is also looking like the whole 16 episodes won’t run in one continuous run as promised and more likely the initial run may just be 8 episodes. What this means for the remaining 8 I don’t know, maybe they will just show them later in the year or possibly they could extend seasons 5 and 6 to be 20 episodes each. I don’t really mind so long as we don’t get short changed 8 episodes.
