Lost... Need I Say More?
Raise your hand if you watched the Lost marathon last night.
I know I did... with an empty suitcase waiting to be packed for a business trip, I sat and watched Lost get its big send off with two friends.
When it was over, there was silence. Thoughtful silence of trying to figure out if we were fans of the ending... if the holes we thought were holes were really holes, or if we just weren't thinking it through enough.
In truth, I'm still thinking... as I pack, of course. And while today's trivia needs to be Lost themed, I know there is no trivia I could come up with that a Lost fanatic wouldn't get off the top of their heads. No, the true fan of Lost needs more of a challenge than trivia. A true fan of Lost needs to be able to explain the series... concisely.
Jimmy Kimmel actually shocked me a bit with his insight (did his writers write it for him?) that he thinks the entire show was Jack's journey/test--and that Jack passed. (Also, did any of you see the Debby Gibson video he made as a tribute? That's going to have about 1,000,000 hits in 24 hours!)
So this 2-part question is posed by me, but the winner will be chosen by concesus (as in the first one to post the theory that is most agreed upon). It will focus on two attached characters because they are, in turn, attached to the stories of the other surviving characters:
#1- At what point in the series do you think Jack acutally died?
#2- When did Kate die?
The popular theory in season 1 is that all the passengers died in the crash, but that the "survivors" were simply the people who didn't cross over. Do you still believe that, or something else?
Most popular answer wins!!!
