Some More Finale Lost Spoilers

With the Lost Schedule for season 3 winding down to the Season finale a day from now, we've decided to post a few more of the Lost Spoilers or foilers ;) floating around for this episode, which is Season 3, Ep. 23 and Ep. 22 of Lost on ABC.

Here is the sharp new new UK Lost spoilers preview from SkyTV:

Remember the season finale gives tribute to Alice In Wonderland as the title suggests, going "Through the Looking Glass". Understanding what that means - as discussed in one of our earlier season finale spoilers posts - will be a key to understanding and really appreciating the impact of this clever season finale from the Lost creators. While you watch the season finale, remember that and enjoy.

For those rooting for a Sawyer-Kate relationship with a cozy house behind a white picket fence, you were destined to be disappointed. Despite disbelief, this really is not new news, as we reported it last February in the Lost Clues for Episode 9 and in January in one of the Hiatus Lost Spoilers articles. In the season finale the Lost spoilers are that Kate winds up in the same place as Jack in the end, sort of. Where? We'll definitely see that by the end of the episode, and it will give a lot of fodder for discussion later of this Jack-centric episode.

Sawyer is in a dark, but decisive space in the season 3 finale, and is not too friendly, to Mr. Friendly. And, remember, Ben aka Fake Henry Gale does lie.

A final finale Lost spoilers clip has been released. This is the scene where Sawyer decides to go back to try to assist and rescue some of the captured beach Lostaways:

Lost Spoilers: Season 1 Finale - Through The Looking Glass

This is the Lost Spoilers blog on the Lost Season 3 finale, entitled, "Through The Looking Glass" - season 3, episodes 22 and 23 of Lost on ABC TV. Well, that's mostly true. In honor of the Lost schedule making the season finale a double episode, we'll have a double Lost Spoilers blog for this episode. So, this is part 1 ...

There are a lot of rumours, foilers and theories floating around about this episode, creating the big buzz buzz buzz Lost does this time of year. So, we could say the marketing gurus atop the ABC TV tower are doing their job admirably ...

One thing we can say for sure, the longing glance Kate gives Jack in the ABC Lost spoilers sneak peak at the season finale of Lost really means something, and so does Jack's "I love you" in the preview.

In the sneak peak, the losties are getting ready for the battle of Lost island with the evil Others. Sayid and Jack go man to man with a hearty handshake, rousing music in the background, as Jack leads the masses of survivors up the beach to the radio tower. Sayid is ready to sacrifice his life shooting out the dynamite to secure a rescue:

The Canadian Lost spoilers preview from CTV shows that something went wrong with the plan. Although the Others cult commandos ran into the trap, and it worked at least partially, Rose exclaims there were supposed to be three explosions. Yet in reality there were just two.

In one of the USA Lost spoilers previews, we saw Sayid a prisoner of the Others. Ben though is apologetic, as if he needs for the first time to explain his evil actions, saying everything he did was "for the island". The Lost spoilers are that Locke and the Others are opposing Ben's hypnotic power over the Others cult and his lame excuse was not working. The Others will be surprised to learn that the Looking Glass Dharma station actually is a jamming facility that Ben had used all along to block communications with the outside world. Subverting rescue not only of the Losties, but also subverting the mobility and freedom of the Others as well. This will be a scene setter for season 3.

As discussed in the Lost Spoilers clues blog for "Greatest Hits", Charlie is captured ... and does not make it home. R.I.P. Naomi and Patchy have confrontations and do not make it off the island either.

More on the way, check back soon ...

Lost Spoilers and Clues: Season 3, Episode 21 - Charlies Greatest Hits and Season Finale spoilers

The Lost schedule is winding up to the grand finale of Lost Season 3, on ABC TV. This is the Lost Spoilers clues blog for the "Greatest Hits" episode. Greatest Hits set the stage for the season finale, entitled "Through the Looking Glass". Here are some of the main points of the Greatest Hits episode and some spoilers for the season finale next week.

Already we posted a lot of Lost spoilers for Through the Looking Glass, a two hour episode (Season 3, episodes 22 and 23)... and come back later this week for a lot more.

Lost Spoilers - Charlie - Greatest Hits Spoilers
It was fun, Charlie

As readers of this blog knew from the earlier article, Charlie does not die, but Desmond does not lie. How do you reconcile those two contradictory statements. After all, Greatest Hits opens with Desmond predicting that Charlie must die. Yet, he doesn't. When he gets down to the Looking Glass Hatch, it was not flooded as expected. Instead it definitely was habitable, and fully inhabited at that ... by hostile Others with guns. The episode ends with that stunning revelation. So does that mean that Charlie lives, and Desmond lies? No.

Greatest Hits was a fitting tribute to Charlie and what he contributed to the development of the Lost mythology. Five of the greatest moments of Charlie's life in the Charlie flashback - his greatest hits. But Charlie's contract has not been renewed. Greatest Hits was but a stage setter for the Lost season finale in Through the Looking Glass. The Lost spoilers are that Charlie does not make it to the end. Sorry Charlie.

Captain Jack has another of his unrealistic plans. He trusts Juliet completely and persuades the other Losties to follow along. Sayid also has developed a rescue plan. So the two plans are set in motion, Sayid's over Jack's initial opposition. Jack devises the battle plan, with the stunning reappearance of Bernard and Rose, who have been lost in Lost season 3. As we saw coming attractions, Jack's plan does not work as he expected. A lot of Losties are captured. But does Ben really have the unqualified support of his Others cult? No.

It turns out Jack already had brought in Danielle Rousseau for backup, and she has been retrieving dynamite from the wreck of the Black Rock. That is the same place Locke held Sawyer and his still-alive father in "The Brig", season 3, episode 19. Remember the surreal scene when Rousseau walked in on Locke, said Hi, and then turned around and walked out with a box of dynamite? She was bringing it for the ambush plotted by Jack. Unfortunately, Jack did not help her carry the dynamite, and when Karl comes to warn that the attack is a day earlier than Juliet believed, Jack's plan is in tatters. No way to detonate the dynamite, except by using sharpshooters.

Hi, just here for a box of dynamite.

They plant the explosives in three tents marked as containing women to be kidnapped by Ben and his not-so-merry band of Others marauders. A lot of Others will be lost, even though not all explode. The battle is on.

As for Sayid's plan, the key is to get the radio brought by Naomi the parachutist working. However, Ben is jamming transmissions via the Looking Glass Dharma station underwater. Desmond and Sayid know how to find it - using the beached cable. Finally we learn its significance. Charlie and Desmond head out to disable the interference. Of course that is when Charlie is surprised to find both air and hostile others. He leaves his legacy in Desmond's pocket.

Here is the short ABC TV trailer for the season finale. Not much in the way of spoilers in it, except to confirm the scene is set for the battle of Lost island between the Others and the Jack-led beach Lostaways:

Lost Spoilers: "Greatest Hits" and the Grand Finale

This is the Lost Spoilers blog for Lost, episode 21, season 3, on ABC TV. Some grand finale - episode 22 and 23 Lost spoilers mixed in too.

The Lost schedule now is catapulting its way to to the grand finale for Season 3, in "Through the Looking Glass" - which is a two hour extravaganza, making it Season 3, episodes 22 and 23. Greatest Hits and Through the Looking Glass are the three pieces of the grand finale. Greatest Hits set the stage and Through the Looking Glass brings the rousing conclusion. The Lost spoilers here - in a season that had some ups and downs, the finale actually is rousing, and will leave us anxious for the return of the sixteen episode season 4.

All the pieces are in place for the climactic battle between the good beach Losties, and the evil Others. And what is the Looking Glass? ... read on. Spoilers ahead, of course, after all this is the Lost Spoilers Blog.

Alice and the Red Queen, Lost inspiration:

'I don't understand you,' said Alice. 'It's dreadfully

'That's the effect of living backwards,' the Queen said kindly:
'it always makes one a little giddy at first--'

'Living backwards!' Alice repeated in great astonishment. 'I
never heard of such a thing!'

'--but there's one great advantage in it, that one's memory
works both ways.'

The Looking Glass is a new undersea Dharma station, which will be introduced. And the final episode is aptly named "Through The Looking Glass", meaning going through the new Looking Glass Station - with inspiration by Lewis Carroll's children's classic sequel to Alice in Wonderland, namely, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. Here, in the Lost universe, we will go through the looking glass and see what is there - different rules and the unexpected. In Lewis Carroll's classic, time runs backwards ... makes you think, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

The Lost Spoilers are that everyone's perspective on Lost will change after the end of the Through the Looking Glass finale. It will be game changing - as the inner sanctum at ABC tells us. We know it, and are going to limit some of the details ... maybe ... you'll see.

Now on to some more Lost Spoilers for "Greatest Hits". This episode has a Charlie flashback. Charlie is a musician, hence his Greatest Hits. Does Charlie die? Desmond uses his crystal ball and says definitely Charlie will die exploring the flooded Looking Glass hatch. The Lost spoilers are that Desmond does not lie, but it does not happen in Greatest Hits.

Do you remember the Desmond flashback in "Flashes Before Your Eyes", season 3, episode 8 - in February? Desmond runs into Charlie in London. Charlie is a street performer, and Desmond confronts him. The Lost spoilers are that we will be back to that time again, but from Charlie's perspective.

A lot of clips are floating around the Internet for the Greatest Hits episode. First, here is ABC's Lost Spoilers promo clip for the episode. The battle lines are drawn and Ben is leading the Others into battle, and Jack, Kate's love, is leading the Losties:

A sneak peak of the Losties trekking across the island. Juliet confesses she has been a spy, and the Others are coming back for the pregnant women. Jack formulates a plan for a Losties counter-attack - "We're gonna blow them all to hell".

ABC TV has its usual cryptic Lost Spoilers press release for Greatest Hits:

While Jack devises a plan to do away with the Others once and for all, Sayid uncovers a flaw in the Others' system that could lead to everyone's rescue. But it requires Charlie to take on a dangerous task that may make Desmond's premonition come true.

Jack devises the counter-attack, and Charlie goes on the mission.

Lost Spoilers Blog Clues: The Man Behind the Curtain, Season 3, Episode 20

This is the Lost Spoilers clues blog for Lost Season 3, Ep. 20 - The Man Behind the Curtain. What is behind the title, of course the Wizard of Oz. Lost, being Lost it is not so straightforward, giving us lots to ponder for the future.

We know the future of course and it has 48 episodes spread over seasons 4, 5, and 6 of Lost TV on ABC. The ABC top echelon wanted to run Lost for as long as possible. After all, as one of the world's most watched TV shows, the Lost series is very valuable. The creators on the other hand only wanted two more seasons to spin their tale, the Lost tale. The compromise? Two seasons of episodes (48), but spread out over three mini-seasons. Lost now will be an "event" program, like a long mini-series.

Don't call me Jacob

As for The Man Behind the Curtain, the Lost spoilers clue is it is Ben not "Jacob". Locke showed he was bad on Mikhail the Russian soldier, beating him to a pulp. However, Ben was badder. You would think Locke would know not to turn his back on Ben, but he did and it was all over, almost. The Lost spoilers say, Locke will be back because the island, and Jacob, love him. Or is it Ben's other Other personality ;) Here is Bonnie Covel's Ben / Jacob Lost Theory.

Actually, the Lost Spoilers blog clue here is, Jacob is and was very real, and very powerful. He also is in some ways controlled or limited Ben. After all, when Jacob was having his tantrum over Locke's bright flashlight (it is dark in that house), Ben, like a jailer or a parent admonished Jacob that he had "enough fun". Ben has some control, but not total control. Ben desperately needed to know the message Jacob got to Locke, "Help me". Not total control.

Locke is a dire threat to Ben's control over the Others cult. Locke challenged Ben in front of all the other Others, and they simply looked on, if not silently rooting for Locke, who they know is very special.

Alternatively of course, Ben could really is the psycho he appears to be - with a dual personality disorder.

Readers of this blog have known forever that Ben lies. Now we know he murdered his own father in cold blood (meet Roger Work Man, the partying skeleton in Hurley's hippie bus), murdered his Dharma teachers, and murdered all the people he grew up with. The hostiles - they took over the Dharma camp.

Penny Widmore spoilers, Lost thories: Penny returns and is aligned with the murdered Dharma-ites.

Kate of course still loves Jack, and cannot keep a secret from him, even with Juliet on the scene. Poor Sawyer.
