    [–] Who is your least favorite character and why? Dpate10 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 hours ago) in lost

    Because of her constantly switching between Jack and Sawyer and/or because she always has to join in on missions?

    If so, there's a reason for both those things. In many ways Lost is about self-judgment. In the beginning of the series, because of what she's done in her past, Kate doesn't believe she deserves someone like Jack. She likes Jack, but she thinks Sawyer, who is an asshole in the beginning of the series, is more in line with what she deserves. At least that was the motivation in the beginning. She does end up genuinely caring about Sawyer.

    Kate has to learn to forgive herself for her past actions.

    As for her constantly joining in on missions, she does it because she always has to "run." She has difficulty staying in one place due to what her life was like before arriving on the Island.

    >In that timeframe Ben simply didn't exist. That's his subjective experience.

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by this?

    In order for a line to be a line doesn't it have to be linear?

    [–] Time travel Dpate10 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in lost

    Time travel is confusing as hell, so I might be wrong here, but here's what I mean:

    A straight line would be past, present, and future. In Lost, the characters start out in the present, but when they time travel they end up in the past. Now, this would be standard stuff if Lost's time travel occurred in a closed loop, but it doesn't. The characters start out in a straight line, but then that line has to backtrack to the past, and then back to the present. That's not a straight line, it's something like this:

    About what? Do you see the dashes?

    What I mean by it not being a straight line is that it doesn't look like this: ----------

    Yes, but it's not a straight line. I edited out some mistakes I made on my previous comment.

    In fiction, time travel can work in different ways. With a closed loop, doing something in the past can affect the future. However, in Lost, time travel doesn't work that way. The past and present timelines are not connected by both of their two ends, so one cannot affect the other.

    [–] Time travel Dpate10 2 points ago in lost

    The past is his present, and the future is his past.

    In Lost, time travel does not occur in a closed loop.

    [–] A flashback look at S1E12 "Whatever the Case May Be", my least favorite episode of season 1. Dpate10 3 points ago * (lasted edited 20 hours ago) in lost

    For some reason, when I first watched the episode, I remember thinking the toy plane was some sort of sick joke. I thought whoever had placed it inside the case knew, somehow, that Oceanic 815 would crash in the future (and I thought Kate was in on it). That's why I enjoyed this episode so much. Watching it now, though, it's definitely one of the weakest episodes.

    Kate: Sawyer or Jack

    [–] Possible minor plot hole concerning season 4 ending Dpate10 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in lost

    Think of the area surrounding the Island as a dome. Jin was blasted off the ship, resulting in him being thrown within the dome's area. The helicopter, given its altitude, was outside the dome. Everything within the dome's area was moved.

    [–] Who do you think is the best actor/actress is on the show? Not favorite, just the best. Dpate10 10 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in lost

    Matthew Fox. I think he's just as good as Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson, but people rarely give him recognition. Look at his performance in "White Rabbit," "All the Best Cowboys have Daddy Issues," and "Through the Looking glass," to name a few. Great actor

    [–] Top 5 contributors in the Lost reddit. Dpate10 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in lost

    What I like about your comments is that you make lots of great connections to literary works, cultures, religions, etc. Most people simply use the information presented in the show when crafting their responses, but you dig much deeper.

    [–] Was there a solid reason for Charlie to die? Dpate10 5 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in lost

    Charlie accepted his fate. He knew he was going to die no matter what, so instead of always being scared, he came to terms with it. He accepted his mortality. In addition, I think he still believed that sacrificing himself would lead to Claire being rescued.

    As for the structure, it's called the "Looking Glass." It was used by the Dharma Initiative as a beacon to help guide submarines approaching the Island. Later, it was used by the Others to jam transmissions being broadcast to or from the Island.

    Aaron suddenly becomes the main character and the remainder of the story focuses on him? Hell no!
