Stargate Universe Current Information

Friday, January 30, 2009 @ 10:01 AM
Abbas Karimjee[ Administrator/ Owner]

Please note that frequent visits to this site are encouraged as additional news/information is posted on a regular basis.Pieces of information on this site are kept for the period in which they are relevant.

Indeed a brand new series with new characters, a brand new ship,   and the arrival  new problems  appear as the  Stargate franchise dials up for its third series:StargateUniverse. This  post will act as a resource of current news with regards to casting, scheduling, storylines/arcs, discussion , general theme and discussion opportunities for Stargate Universe.

StargateUniverse  follows the adventures of a brand new inexperienced  team  who  accidentally  finds themselves trapped on an ancient ship called the Destiny after a routine reconnsicance  mission goes wrong.It  should be noted that the team becomes trapped shortly after the ninth chevron of the Stargate is unlocked.The  massive  Destiny was  launched by the Ancients  millions of  years prior to the  creation of the city Atlantis which was explored in the previous Stargate series, Stargate Atlantis. The Destiny was being used by the Ancients as a tool to assist them in their ongoing efforts to locate Stargates  over  various galaxies.This  effort , however, was abandoned when they revised their goals towards achieving ascension.There is indeed no means for the crew to return to Earth  as by boarding the ship they have made the ship automatically continue the journey over the various galaxies which the Ancients had started.None of the crew members are able to determine the route of the ship.Further challenges arise when the team members are unable to control the amount of time which the ship spends in  each of the stargates which the ship comes into range of.Also, as the ship is on a set route, any member who is left behind cannot be rescued , adding to the overall drama of  the difficulty of spending time on planets encounter civilizations and obtain resources for the survival of the crew.

Targeted towards a younger age demographic than that of its sister series Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe will focus more on the character dynamics ,relationships and a crew of unprepared individuals being trapped on the ship.The program is a younger and edgier version of Stargate.The idea of  the ship  being physically located in space unlike the previous Stargate series was incorporated  in order to ensure that younger audiences will  consider the show to be appealing.The program is still expected to maintain  fundamental  aspects of Stargate  such as humor and adventure which have made Stargate  a success .Although,  the premise of StargateUniverse will be firmly associated with the mythology of the previous two  Stargate series, the program  will generally have a more minimal involvement of the Ancients and other aspects of Stargate mythology. StargateUniverse  will also  be less about encounter with alien species and more to do with  the team’s ability to survive on the ship. Indeed the producers described  the series as a darker and more intense  form of Stargate and consequently the series will be more drama based than its predecessors.Lead actor, Robert Carlyle who will be playing the mysterious and questioned leader, Dr.Nicholas Rush  has illustrated the drama of the new series by indicating that  there are three deaths on  the Destiny within the crew’s first three hours of being on board.A suicide is also committed  by  sixthepisode because of the desperation of being stranded with no hope of return.Furthermore, Creators of StargateUniverse , Brad Wright and Robert Cooper who were executive producers of Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis   intend on allowing StargateUniverse to   act as   more of a stand alone series in which new  viewers can join the franchise   withminimal background knowledge with regards  to the Stargate franchise.Stargate Universe is also expected to be more arc based than the previous Stargate series.Consulting producer of the program   and former  executive producer of Stargate Atlantis, Joseph Mallozzihas indicated that while the program does have its fair share of stand alone episodes , most of the episodes will be apart of the large story arc. In fact a large portion of the first part of season 1 provides viewers with a continuous  string of episodes which follow the first story arc of  the show.

Stargate Universe  debuted  as a 2 hour movie on  October 2 2009  at 9:00pm eastern standard time on the Science Fiction Channel.

Additional News

The Movie Network on Demand has indicated   their position on broadcasting Stargate Universe.Currently the  Canadian network is only aware  that Stargate Universe is in production and a  decision has   not yet been made to air the show. It should be noted that the Movie Network on Demand   aired all five seasons of Stargate Atlantis in first run format.Canadian residents will, however,  be able to watch Stargate Universe on The Space Channel.The program airs every  10:00pm eastern standard time .This  an hour later than the 9:00pm eastern time  in which the Science Fiction Channel will be airing the program  for residents of the USA.Space Channel has also communicated that   shortly after each  weekly episode has completed its debut on television, it will appear online at http://watch.spacecast.com/ where viewers can view an episode for a period of one week  after its debut on television. Enjoy the show!

Meanwhile  Sky  One  has purchased broadcasting  rights for Stargate  Universe.The network has unconditional rights for the first season including applying on video on demand and available for downloading on their website.The UK network  previously aired  Stargate SG1  and Stargate Atlantis   in first run format.UK viewers  were able to watch the debut on October 6 2009 and weekly episodes will continue to  air every  Tuesday[see precise schedule information further below in  the SGU International Schedule Table]

As communicated further above, Stargate Universe will have  homosexual characters.The character of Camille Wray who is played  by Ming Na is indeed a homosexual and as previously suggested, Camille’s lifetime parter, Sharon will be seen in the ninth episode, Life. There is also at least one other gay character in the program. Further details on exactly which other character is a homosexual has not yet been disclosed. Co creator, Brad Wright indicated that the decision to include  homosexuals in the program was in order to  create issues and differences in terms of character relationships and to connect  with more groups of people including homosexuals. Cooper indicated that   widening the range of audience was not only done for the sake of ratings, but also to provide an accurate and realistic depiction of the current state of  humanity  .Consulting producer of Stargate Universe and former executive producer of Stargate Atlantis,Joseph Mallozzi indicated that Stargate Atlantis had a couple of homosexual characters. Captain Alica Vega   who was played by actress Leela Savasta, was also homosexual, according to Mallozzi.Vega was introduced to viewers in the season 5 premiere , Search and Rescue. Mallozzi also indicated that Atlantis had a male  gay character , however  viewers never had the chance to find out who exactly this was.While, the series did have   the presence of homosexual characters, unlike Stargate Universe , these Atlantis characters were not involved in  situations which gave them the opportunity to  reveal their difference.

Co producers of StargateUniverse, Brad Wright and Robert C Cooper have provided further details on the  developing series .The producers conveyed that Stargate Universe will have aliens .Unlike the aliens of the previous two series, these  species will   be  quite distinguishable from human appearance, characteristic and behavior.Stargate Universe will also have more stories told on earth as characters will have the opportunity to utilize and ancient device known as a long range communicator to talk to family members . This will allow for characters to relate/recall their past and  for  stories to be told on Earth in flashback format. Viewers will therefore see the lifestyles of various characters before they became trapped on the ancient ship of Destiny .StargateUniverse will also  be less staged and more like a documentary and reality according to Cooper.This has been done in order for the audience to embrace the science fiction elements and characters.The  producers anticipate that the documentary shooting style will allow for the adventures to seem less staged and thus more realistic so viewers feel as if they are joining the characters in their journey on the ship.By having this feeling, the producers anticipate that viewers can further their connection with the characters in  a way that could perhaps not  have been done in  the previous Stargateseries.Cooper  indicated that this concept is quite similar to the production methods  used in the science fiction series Firefly,  which both co producers greatly enjoy.

Consulting producer of Stargate Universe and former executive producer of Stargate Atlantis  and Stargate SG1 , Joseph Mallozzi is now having Stargate related postsof his blog syndicated on the Science Fiction Channel’s new Stargate Universe site.Mallozzi  admits that determining which posts are to be classified as Stargate orientated is a difficult challenge  as many of  his posts focus on other topics of personal interest while having a small part [usually Mallozzi's daily mailbag where  he answers  fan questions]dedicated towards Stargate.It was also conveyed that  the approval process  from Sci Fi for behind the scene pictures and stage photos of Stargate Universe will be  quickened .While this will promote Mallozzi’sonline work and Universe,it should be noted that unlike the original blog, the Science Fiction Channel does not have a comment feature on posts and there is  also no avenue to  directly  contact Mallozzi.Check out the syndicated blog today athttp://mt-showblogs.scifi.com/stargate/index.phpor visit the original blog at www.josephmallozzi.wordpress.com.

Actor Michael Shanks will  the  appear in the  second half of Stargate Universe.Shanks, who played the main cast role of the archaeologist , Dr.Daniel Jackson in all ten seasons of Stargate SG1  will  reoccur in the fourteenth episode of the  Stargate Universe, titled Human.Shanks rolein the episode will be more significant than that  in the series premiere, AirPart 1 in which he appeared for a cameo role.The episode will feature Daniel and Stargate Universe  lead actor, Robert Carlyle  character’s , Dr.Nicholas Rush working together.Human will debut during early 2010.We look forward to seeing Daniel have  a significant role in the storyline of the episode.

Stargate Universe will receive an additional supplement which viewers of the previous Stargate series never had the pleasure of.The first season will be accompanied with 30 webepisodes.Each episode will have a direct association and revelance to the episodes produced for television.Episodes will be presented through the use of a Kino, a sphere shaped device which moves around the ship and spies  on characters  aboard in order to  enhance the audience perspective of habitual lifestyle of the program’s characters.Residents of the USA    are able to view episodes at the Science Fiction Channel’s Stargate Universe site at http://www.syfy.com/universe/  .Meanwhile, Canadians residents can  view the episodes on Space Channel’s website. An entire production unit has been assigned the task of generating these  two minute episodes.We look forward to this new installment within the Stargate franchise.

Stargate Universe will be available online for free of charge on Hulu.The episodes will appear on the site   on the day subsequent to its debut on The Science  Fiction  Channel[USA] and The Space [Canada].As Hulu does with other current series  which it streams  , viewers will have the opportunity to  view  an episode for up to five weeks, after which point episodes will individually be replaced with a  more recent one. Although Stargate SG1 and Stargate  Atlantis are  now available for free on Hulu, the website did not stream the episodes in the same week as they made a first run broadcast.Readers should note that  episodes at www.hulu.com can only be viewed by residents  of the USA.Enjoy the show!

 Actress Rhona  Mitra has been casted for a guest role in thefinal three episodes of Stargate Universe’s inaugaral season.The three episode story arc includes the  eighteenth episode, Submersion along with Incursion Part 1 amd the season finale, Incursion Part 2.Mitra will play the role of   a   character named Kiva, who is  described as a strong willed leader  of the  Lucian alliance  incursion force  aboard the Destiny.Readers may recall that  the Lucian Alliance is the alien species responsible for the  attack on Icarus Base which caused those on the base to travel  to the Destiny in the first place. SyFy also described the character of Kiva  as an individual who “will do whatever it takes to safeguard her people even if it is at the ultimate expense of the Destiny crew.”Mitra  is a 33 year old actress bornin London, England.She has  played main cast roles in  various  series including The Practice and Boston Legal.Mitra’s recurring roles on television include appearances on series such as  Gideon’s Crossing and Party  of Five.We look forward toobserving the suspense and  drama associated with the presence of Kiva’s incursion force on board the ancient Destiny.

Stargate Universe lead actor, Robert Carlyle has   appeared in  a recent episode in the  CBS television program entitled The Late Late Show  which was broadcasted  on  Wednesday , October 14 2009 .In the episode, Carlyle  talked  with the program’s host, Scotsman Craig Ferguson.Carlyle and Ferguson  spent time discussing  life  in Scottland  ,how Carlyle’s transtion to Canada went, and  about the new Stargate Universe.The halarious segment has been posted directly below and lasts for about 8 minutes in length.Enjoy!

Stargate Universe main cast member ,  Alaina Huffman who plays the main cast role  of  the medic , Tamara Johansen revealed that she is pregnant  during a recent interview  with Australia’s Science Fiction Channel’s  blog. Huffman later   provided further details on Twitter indicating that she is currently seven  and a half months into her pregnancy. With this announcement, many viewers have begun to wonder how the pregnancy will  affect her character’s storyline  and degree of involvement  within  the series,  should the program  be renewed for a second  season  . One possibility is that Johansen ’s pregnancy could be incorporated into the storyline of   the series similar to the way in which     Rachel  Luthrell’s  [Teyla Emmagan] pregnancy was  incorporated into an ongoing storyline  of Stargate Atlantis’   fourth and final fifth seasons  .Another  possibility  is  that  the actor will  play the character in a reduced capacity for a temporary period or  take a leave of absence just as Stargate SG1 co star, Amanda Tapping [Colonel Samantha Carter]did for the first five episodes of the series ninth season  .Readers should note that if  Stargate Universe is renewed for a second season,  the production for  the show’s second year will commence February 2010 - only about  2 months after the actress’ delivery date . When asked  how  her  pregnancy will impact of her character, Huffman simply    stated  that “You have to watch,”Huffman exclaimed   happily  “I think every actor on the Stargate franchise has had one or more kids.  [The writers] know what they are doing, and they know how to deal with it.  I can’t give away spoilers whether we are or are not going to entertain that possibility.  You’ve just got to keep watching.

The   actress, who is married with two children, also commented on  how the Stargate Universe production was one which permitted  actors to strike a career/personal life balance, communicating that  the position offers felxible hours thanks to the ensemble  nature of the cast.Huffman is therefore often able to spend time with her children and play a part in their daily routine by  having the opportunity to atleast drop them to school if not also having the chance to pick them up.The actress also added her post allows her to  still also have   great deal of time in the year off.The complete first part of Huffman’s   interview with  the network , in which she also  discusses  her integration into  her new post  as playing the character of Tamara Johansen along with her interaction with colleagues  can be viewed at http://www.scifitv.com.au/Blog/2009/10/alaina-huffman-on-skype-sgus-blonde-star-is-pregnant/.  Enjoy!Best wishes are extended towards Huffman for a  successful delivery.

Indeed actress Amanda Tapping  will return to the screens as the astrophysicist, Colonel Samantha Carter one more  time before the finalization of Stargate Universe’s inaugural season .The actress, of course, played the character  as main cast role   for  all ten seasons of Stargate SG1 and in the fourth season of  Stargate Atlantis.In a recent interview with The Huffingman post, Tapping indicated that she would guest star towards the end of the season. In the interview,Tapping  briefly outlined her  recent experience in  shooting  Stargate Univcerse  communicating to the site   that “I’ve done two episodes,” “I did their first two-parter and I’m at the very end of their season. And I just shot that a few weeks ago. So I started their season and I’m ending their season, which was very cool. But I didn’t get to play with anyone. If they were ever to have me come back, I’d want to be with people. I’m kind of off on my ship, which I think is awesome.Tapping’s  previous  appearance in  Stargate Universe was  in the series premiere , Air Part 1 in which Carter is the commander of  of the new earth ship , Hmmond named after the   character  of the deceased actor,  Don S Davis, General George Hammond.The complete interview can be viewed  online at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jenna-busch/amanda-tapping-launches-c_b_350257.html. Readers should note that the exact episode in which Carter will be seen  has yet to be revealed.Further details will be posted as they are obtained. We look forward to seeing Carter in Stargate Universe again and we  anticipate that her latest  appearance   will  be  of a greater capacity than that of her  appearance in the premeire of this exciting new series.

The first half of Stargate Universe’s first season will be released on DVD and Blu Ray on February 9 2010.SGU 1.0 currently has a suggested price  of 49.98 dollars US  amounting to a price of 59.98 for Canadian residents.Meannwhile the Bklu Ray edition will cost 69:99 [US]and 89:99 [Canada].The idea of splitting the first season into two halfves was done  as aresult of the fact that  there is  a   breakof four months between the mid season finale and the commencement of the second  half of the season.Fans will therefore  be able to have the chance to  catch upon viewing the series .The first half of the season being released earlier on also benefits the promotional  health of the series as allows foran increase in awareness of te program in the months leading up to  the  finalization of the break  and into the second half of the inaugural season.Readers should also note that Stargate Universe’s first season is the first season ever, in the Stargate franchise, to be released on Blu Ray.The DVD edition will also include a variety of features such as actor/producer commentary on episodes, Kino Video Diaries, and  the Stargate 101 Videos, which  pertain to Dr.Danie’l Jackson’s explanation of the Stargate program to the unmotivated yet  brilliant , Eli Wallace.Eli is seen  viewing the explanation in the series premiere, Air Part 1.

Your Online Stargate Universe Ratings Reference

 How well did that episode do?....... 

Stargate Universe has  scored considerably solid, ratings for its  2  hour series premiere, Air Part 1 and Air Part 2 which debuted on October 2 2009.According to  a report released by the Science Fiction Channel, the two hour premiere attracted over 2.35 million viewers equating to a  1.7 million average per household rating.The report communicates that 1.32 million   of the viewers were  in the 25-54  demographic while 1.12 million viewers were in the 18-49 age demographic.The 1.12 million rating for the latter  age group  was the biggest rating for that demographic for  a Friday night series since the debut of  the science fiction series, Battlestar Gallactica in January 2005.While the 1.7 million rating many not be as high as anticipated  by both producers and many fans of the Stargate franchise,  the Science Fiction  Channnel remains  very positive, indicating that   the ratings have defined the Stargate Universe primiere as the Stargate Franchise's biggest premiere in four years[since the July 2005  debut of Stargate Atlantis' second season.]Accordingly,the cast and crew of Stargate Universe are congratulated for  their  exceptional work  towards the series which  has most definitely  contributed to the accumulation of such a notable rating.

Indeed the final hour of  the Stargate Universe premiere , Air Part 3  scored better than the previous week’s Air Part 1 and Air Part 2 ,  attracting a total of 2.4 million viewers to the screen.This equates to a rating of 1.8  million per household average. The 18-49 age group had a 22 percent increase in viewership than the  first two parts of the premiere while the 25-49 demographic acheived a 13 percent increase. This is quite a notable rating as usually ratings begin to fall  starting the week after  a season/series debuts.This opposite reaction is a positive indicator of the growing interest towards this new exciting series.Senior VP of Syfy Digital , Craig Engler echos our reaction on this exceptional rating.   “I can’t emphasize enough how impressive it is for a show to grow from its premiere,” Engler said. “That’s pretty rare.”This is indeed an outstanding result  for which  the Stargate Universe production is congratulated.

MGM has released a  trailer for the second half of Stargate Universe’s inaugural  season which is scheduled to begin on Friday, April 2 . The trailer includes parts from the  conclusion to the mid season parter, Space which  bring forth the series  first intelligent  alien species.Readers will also  have opportunity to  view   actress Rhona Mitra  as the Lucian  Alliance leader, Kiva and obtain  brief insight to an additional threat  which will  be present in the backhalf of the series’ freshman season.Be sure to take a look at the trailer directly below and share your thoughts on it in the comments segment further below.Enjoy!

 Thanks to a swift change on  Emmy Submission policies made  by the TV academy,  LOST will eligible for being considered for the Emmy award.The vote which  the academy held recently onMay 19 2010,   brought forth  change in rules which now allow for the 2 1 /2 hour finale to be submitted for  consideration. Prior to  the vote, finales exceeding twice the time of  a regular  episode were not allowed to be considered. Indeed we are pleased that  LOST can  be considered  for the EmmyAwards and hope that the show will receive recognition  for its excellence!

Indeed  there has been a great deal of confusion regarding the LOST series finale entitled, The End. In  addition to the  mind bending  yet conclusive series finale which gave viewers plenty to process,    scenes were shown during the closing credits which depicted the oceanic plane having crashed. Many viewers  confused this to mean that  the characters had indeed all been dead during the  entire  six seasons of the finale . ABC  issued a statement which clarified the issue  indicating that “The images shown during the end credits of the Lost finale, which included shots of Oceanic 815 on a deserted beach, were not part of the episode but were a visual aid to allow the viewer to decompress before heading into the news,” Readers can therefore be assured that the island life was indeed  apart of the character’s real life. Were  you confused by the scenes? Does this give you some clear insight on the finale? Drop us a line in the comments section further below.

With the end  of LOST having passed,  many viewers   have been pondering  about how those who  survived  the finale lived out  the rest of their lives. According to actor  Michael Emerson,   there  will be further  conclusion to this unknown factor. The conclusion will be seen in  a  special feature in the entire LOST   DVD collection entitled, ‘The New Man in Charge’, which gives  viewers a look into exactly how  Hurley and Ben went about performing their duties towards the island.

For those people that want to pony up and buy the complete Lost series, there is a bonus feature, which is… you could call it an epilogue,” Emerson said. “A lost scene. It’s a lot. It’s 12 or 14minues  that opens a window onto that gap of unknown time between Hurley becoming number one and the end of the series. It’s self-contained, although it’s a rich period in the show’s mythology that’s never been explored, so who knows.

Readers should also note that this special clip will also a be a special  feature  of the season 6 DVD set.

Be  sure to find out how   Hurley and Ben spent the rest of their days by  purchasing your copy of the complete   series DVD of  LOST on August 24  2010. Will you be  purchasing the collection? Do you look  forward to seeing more on   the island’s new leadership? What are your predictions on how Hugo and  Ben ran the island? Sound off in the comments section  below!

The Scene of the Week section is our newest feature where we post the most memorable or significant photo in   each week’s episode , discuss  the reason for our choice and the pros and cons of the scene.  Take a look  at what we have to say and   then  share your thoughts in the comments section below.

LOST - "The End" - One of the most critically-acclaimed and groundbreaking shows of the past decade concludes in this "Lost" Series Finale Event. The battle lines are drawn as Locke puts his plan into action, which could finally liberate him from the island, on "Lost," SUNDAY, MAY 23 (9:00-11:30 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/MARIO PEREZ)JOHN TERRY

Scene : Christian leads the losties into the  next level  of existence.

Significance – This is scene  is well done as  it   clearly explains what the sideways world is - a sort of purgatory  in which  the Losties had moved on to after death. This after life was a place they had created had to find each other  and live the lives  they were unable to keep when they were alive. The scene of Jack leaving is touching because although we know that he had to sacrifice  everything for the island , he  got what he wanted in this after life, just as all of  the other Losties did. We can be pleased to see that now they  have rediscovered each other they are moving on  to another plane of existence where they are united! Although many mysteries  of the island remain  unanswered, we can atleast be pleased that the ultimate fate of the  characters was discovered.   A  beautiful conclusion!

Sayid’s shooting  of Widmore’s men   and informing them of the danger- Can he still be trusted?  Zoe remains.

Desmond   wanting  the list  of  the passengers- Does he want them to tap  with their subconscious to connect in some  way  with the island time line?  Is he essentially bringing aspects of the timeline  to the passangers in their offline reality? Will he be the one who will help the passengers  merge with the island time line? What will be the consquence of this?

- Michael’s reappearance -  atte,pt for redemption and explanation of Whispers- further adds to how the Island is the place which contains  all which  is / was evil- smoke monster and sinners, touching moment towards the end of the episode when Michael extends his apology to  Libby

-  The division between Richard and Hurley, . Which side’s plan will prevail? Will they both end up in battle with each other to execute their way of defeating the MIB?

- Locke pushing Desmond in the well as a way of  preventing Widmore from defeating him. Why did  Desomd reveal his advantage? Is he so fearless/ confident that the MIB will be defeated that he is willing to reveal how he will be defeated?

What will be Desmond’s fate?

Why did Desmond  run into Locke?- something to do with reuniting with Jack to   establish  his awareness of the other reality. Or is  Desmond able to see [ from 2004], the fate  of Locke in 2007 and how he has been taken over by MIB? Has Desmond misconceived him in the off island reality to be  the  MIB because of his vision of the MIB as Locke in the island time line.

The Last  Recruit

Island Reality

Locke’s statement about  how he  was in the body of Jack’s father on the third day of the island- another mystery revealed. However, Christian was not in the coffin meaning that  MIB took  over his body,  but why did he  not do  the same  with Locke? Why did he have to be in another body that looked like Locke when he could take over the original in Christian Sheppard?

Claire’s comment about how Jack will submit and Jack’s reconsideration of supporting Jacob’s cause or joining MIB?

Locke’s instructions to Sayid about killing Desmond . Sayid’s realization that Nadia would not  approve of his method in runiting with her and how he  would not be the same man she fell in love with. How he lied to Locke.   Has Desmond [ theweapon against MIB] found a way of turning against him by   brining  purity into those  who have been influenced by evil ? Is Desmond able to do this because of how he has become enlightened? Is there still hope for Sayid after all?

Jack ‘s discussion with Sawyer- hgow it does not feel right . His valid reason of  going back to the island   as   the survivors were something MIB  was scared of  and hence wanted to  use to leave  with the  island. Did he go back to take the place of a candidateor did he, as Claire, predicted  submit to the will of MIB  ?Is Jack really with him?

Sun and Jin reunion – touching and heartfelt moment- What we have always been waiting for. However, was it less emotional and dramatic then anticipated for their three year seoeration and  longlasting search?’Discuss our Scene of The Week comments and weigh in  your thoughts. Also,   feel free to comment on this new feature.

Charles Widmore’s betrayal  and the start of the war with the  bomb attack

Alternate Reality

- Sun and Locke’s hospital  visits

Note how Sun  shows fear of Locke as if she recognizes he is the MIB  from the island reality.

Jack operating on Locke – Was this apart of  Desmond’s plan or was  it to kill him because he  noticed the evil he was in the alternate reality just like Sun appeared to. When Jack looked at Locke, did he only remember him from their encounter on the airport or  did he feel like he remembered him from somewhere – a.k.a – the island!

Claire and Jack’s  encounter thanks to Desmond- the discovery of how  they are siblings

Note how Jack’s relationship with his son has really improved- His son wanted to eat dinnner with him, wished him luck for surgery ,  felt sad for  his father having to listen to the will, engaging in  friendly humour with his dad before the surgery

Ilana in the alternate reality – as an attorney

Sawyer arresting Kate and  Sayid-note how Sayid ’s fear in the island reality becomes a truth in the alternate one when he seperates from Nadia

Kate’s theory on why  Sawyer  did not arrest her at the airport –  to avoid  the acknowledgement  of how he was at Australia .What  do you think about this?

The Candidate

Island Reality

Why is Kate not a candidate? Theories?

- Locke”s deception of the  bomb -  how he  portays  Widmor as attacker

- Jacke’s   theory that  MIB wanted them to fight amongst themselves

- Sawyer’s interference and  how he got them killed

- Sun and  Jin’s heartbreaking and sorrwful moment – In our opinion this was the most tragic   loss in the series. They had struggled so long withbeing apart and trying to reunite only tohave a short reunion. Although  it was fitting that thrydied together , Ji Yeon is now an orphan  because of Jin’s decision to stay behind. She will now be raised  under the same trauma in which   Sun went through with her parents

Sayid’s   slight return and effort for redemption  by informing them of  Desmond’s wehereabouts and  thus significance-  noble sacrifice – Did Desmond heal him to a certain extent?

Frank –   What happened to him. Although it seems logical to assume he is dead , we did not see what happened to him. Do you think he could still be alive?

Claire- Will she rejoin the  losties when  she discover’s what MIB did?

MIB’s next course of action -

What will  the remaining survivors do next? Will  they touch base with Desmond?Will  we see Alpert’s team shortly? Will widmore help? Who will be the candidate?

Alternate Reality

-  Lockes succesful operation ,  he is a candidate for surgery

-   Anthony Copper ‘s paralysis ,  the plane crash which Locke tells Jack about and how essentially Locke believes that he should suffer for he was responsible for his  father’s  paralysis  in speaking and movement

Locke’s  talking about the hatch  in his deep sleep –  he had just been through a life threatening incident- Note how all those who have had vivid memories are either struck by love or death

- Claire -  What was the significance of the box she was holding? Also, note how she and Jack will have the chance to develop their relationship –  do you think by spending  time together they will  remember their  island  life?

Jack  unknowingly repeating Locke’s  suicide note to him in the alternate reality when trying to convince him to take the surgery

Across the Sea

Foster mom of Jacob and MIB-   her reason for killing the mom – to prevent bthem from being raised in a corrupt society

Why wasMIB special? Was it to do with his unique abiity to see the dead or was it because she sensed how he would be a significant  aspect of the island?

Who is this lady?How was she given the responsibility of protecting the light? How long had she been alive for? How was she given powers?

Why  did she  prevent MIB from leaving the island but not Jacob? Was it truly just because of her excessive love for him or  did she know what he would become?

What was the light? How did it come to be? Is the  source  of  goodness or evil? The mother  indicates that everyone wants it and if  it  goes out in the island it goes  out everywhere. But, how can  it be  the source of goodness if  it is the place from where the smoke monster came? Could it be a combination of both. After all the  foster mother says  it  is a place  of “life, death, rebirth”.

Note how she prevnted them from harming each other.- note MIB’S  immortality

MIB’s ability to see  the dead- his mother’ information about the truth-  how  he leaves

Jacob’s  willingness to trust his mother -  how he believes in the reason, yet  he shows reluctancy   in taking her place

MIB’S murder of the foster mother -

Jacob  created the smoke monster and unleased the ultimate evil of the world.

Is his brother still apart of the evil incarnate or  is  the evil incarnate a separate identity which just took  the brother’s body because of how went in the light.  We think MIB  is still in Smokey.   This is why he  tells Kate that his mother  was crazy and goes on about how  issues  which could have easily been prevented brought him in these unfortunate circumstances.

Either way, who is Smokey? How did he come to be? Who created him? We have still not received answers to these questions.

Also, note  the wheel. MIB was going to use it to escape until his mom came and attacked him. However, we learn that the past others created the wheel and were using as a way to leave, thanks to the energy from the light.

Adam and Eve skeletons. We learn that the skeletons were that of   the foster mom [ whom   the MIB killed] and   MIB [ who Jacob inadvertently killed] , whom Jacob buried.

What They Died For

Island Reality -

The candidate’s discussion with Jacob -

Jacob’s  reason for why each of the people on Oceanic 815 were brought to the island – because they needed the island just as much as the island needed them- they had flawed lives in which they could not find what they needed, each of them were lonely

Note the reason for why Kate is not a candidate – since she became  mother to Aron

- Jack volunteers to be the new candidate- how will he kill the MIB? Will he discover the use of the  light? Does Jacob tell him anythingelse?  -

Richard-  Will we  see him again? What exactly happened?Could he have died by the hands of MIB?

Myles -  leaving  for the jungle  Ben’ willingness to  lead the island and how he will kill the candidates  Charles Widmoe and Zoe-     Ben’s betrayal,  Charles Widmore’s  secret about  how Desmond is the failsafe for the islnd – the last resort.

Note how Ben kills Widmore because he does not get to  save his daughter  Alternate Reality</strong>  -  Desmond’s  goal to get Locke  to  let go so he can achieve what he did in the island reality. The evil Ben is back!

Alternate Reality

-Ben’s encounter with Desmond , his  flashback to the island  time line and how Ben is  now a believer  – John is ready to  get off the chair!

Jack’s response to  Locke’s belief bout fate  -

Ben and Rousseau- romantic attraction between the two,  note how both were essentially parents in the island reality  to  Alex and how she views him as a father figure in the alternate reality  – her father’s demise when she was 2

Claire becoming apart of Jack and David’s life  – the concert -  Who do you think is the mother of David? We are betting that it is Juliet!Share your thoughts with us.

Desmond connecting with Sayid and Kate- the promise he  asked them to make-Is he trying to merge the two timelines by  uniting them all together where they will remember the island timeline completely and the full context in which they all knew each other?  -

The return of Ana Lousia – How did you feel to see her again?Why is she not ready for Desmond’s plan ?  -

note how all in the alternate reality seem to be heading towards the concert- Jack, David’mom, Kate, Myles, Sayid,Hurley, Charolette,  and hopefully more!
