Just some rumblings from the peanut gallery. Lots of chatter out there about the finale, including these interesting theories and questions:
The island is located in/within the south pole.
This is obviously due to the final scenes with the cold weather scientists who monitored the new incident (for lack of a better description) and sometimes supported by a polar bear or two. It's being followed up with theories about the island being in a glass sphere, outer space, and my sock drawer.
The latter seems unlikely simply because it possibly violates the producer's statement that everything is scientifically plausible (which a cloaked biodome seems a bit much). The first seems unlikely because were they in the south pole, I think they'd have really long days. Part of me likes the idea of it all being on an asteroid though ... very Phillip Jose Farmer.
One of the scientists is Jack's "Bad Twin"
It's just a couple actors who happen to look alike.
The statue indicates that the Others are aliens or Homer Simpson
I'm guessing the statue is either a red herring or indication of something pre-existing the Others/Dharma. Too soo to tell.
Why those Four?
Lost And Gone Forever pondered the same:
Jack, Kate, and Sawyer might be genetically "chosen" based on their physiques - but not Hurley (and what about Sayid, Jin, etc.?)
Jack, Kate, and Sawyer all had "Daddy Issues" - but Hurley didn't (and what about Sun, Jin, etc.?)
Jack, Kate, and Sawyer might be seen as "leaders" - but not Hurley (and what about Sayid, Locke, etc.?)
Jack, Kate, and Sawyer all met "Zeke" - but Hurley didn't (and Locke did)
Jack, Kate, and Hurley all went to the "Black Rock" - but Sawyer didn't (and Locke did)
My only guess ... they've all had encounters with "spirit" animals or people. Jack's dad. Kate's horse. Hurley's Dave (and a bird?). Sawyer's boar (and later ... tree frog). We should also remember Hurley was released, so maybe he wasn't part of the equation. Perhaps these people have more control over the island than they realize.
If Vincent The Dog mysteriously disappears in Season 3, I'll be convinced he wasn't the real Vincent to begin with.
Vaccine this, vaccine that
So if Kelvin wasn't worried about the disease ... and the vaccine is just a placebo to keep the scare on ... why kidnap Claire and inject her fetus with it before trying to steal the baby?
