LOST 6.05: The Lighthouse

I’ll be brief: This episode was pretty saucy, Claire needs a brush, Jin is sneakier in English, and Jack is still a fool. Also, I unearthed something awesome.

Spoiler after the jump

Jack’s son was playing Fantasie Impromptu by Chopin. It’s a famous piece of music that employs a unique time signature and a lot of tricky hand work (the right and left hands operate on their own agendas or in competition, if you will). The progression includes some unexpected repetition from earlier movements AND it ends ambiguously–like a fantasy, it’s both ominous and mysterious–a gentle resolution.

Think Damon and Carlton are trying to tell us something about how they intend to wrap up the show? Perhaps the two hands are Jacob and Smokey?

    I love that you do all my Lost mythology research and thinking for me, gives me more time to focus on Fringe! When did you major in music theory btw? 🙂

    I’m really glad they had Emilie go to the gym and do some weight lifting. If all they had given us was that wig for proof she’s been self sufficient on an island with just her “friend” I would’ve had some issues. I wonder what kind of hair care she was using on the island prior to every one disappearing for her golden locks to have lasted so long those first few months on the island…

    Also, why is she not surprised that Jin speaks english?

    Jezebel’s post also pointed out that it’s the same song little Farraday is playing when Eloise tells him he can’t play piano and has to focus on physics

      Ehhhhxcellent. I love it! I didn’t even touch on the awesome Alice in Wonderland tidbits from that episode (beyond the actual book showing up)! Like Jack getting the key from underneath a white rabbit or reminiscing about reading “Kitty and Snowdrop” (black & white cats from Alice) to David. (!)
      I love this show!
