The Lesson Learned is Never Give Up on Your Theories

Wow, we may have actually gotten something right!

**Be warned, this entry makes reference to the episode of LOST which aired Tues, April 6 in the USA **

Spoilers for that April 6 episode follow…

If you’re a fan of our ReThinking LOST podcast, and you listened to our preseason 6 prediction show, (I think that’s where it was) then you heard Elton and I discuss the possibility that our Losties might be living in an Alternate Reality post-incident and that it might unravel as one by one they found themselves with the sneaking suspicioin it just didn’t feel right.

Well, that’s starting to look like that might be the case with the Flash Sideways.

(admittedly, I did bail on this theory about 4 episodes ago, but I will happily point out that we did think this was the route it might go back before the season started)

I will also posit that the Flash Sideways are the result of the incident AND consequently the MIB getting set free. I find it interesting that when Desmond touched Penny’s hand, he snapped back to the island. And when he followed Sayid, the was back in the Flash Sideways.

So, when Widmore says all that Desmond and Jin love will be gone, it’s because the Flash Sideways life will result. The MIB is indeed planning to fulfill his promises, by bringing about the Flash Sideways timeline.

Good stuff… my question is “why does Hawking say that Desmond isn’t ready to look for Penny yet?”
