Follow the Yellow Brick Road.

Let's talk about LOST!

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME; Follow the yellow brick road.

THIS IS NOT MY USUAL DETAILED EPISODE POST! I WILL DETAIL THIS EPISODE. These are just preliminary notes and thoughts! Detailed notes will follow.

Eureka! This episode should have been called Further Instructions part 2.
Is John a farmer or a hunter?! Eko called John a hunter, but is he really a farmer? Let's recall the hallucination from the sweat lodge.
Boone tells John, "John someone in this airport's in serious danger, you are the only one who can save them". Who is he speaking about? Aaron? Jack? Here are a few other ties to that episode…
* John: Lives in a commune complete with a Green House and Sweat Lodge.
* John had Orchard duty.
* In Further Instructions, John inadvertently brings in the authorities to the farm/green house.
* Geronimo Jackson.
* Remember John is amenable for coercion.
* He was "chosen" in that episode, he is "chosen" on the "island".
* Eddie's important quote- "Your family has too many secrets".
* Ben instructs John to head NORTH. In Further Instructions Eko's stick instructs John to head North.
* RED notebook contained John's gun info. Red Folder contained the secondary protocol.
* We also have John's vision where he sees Jack getting scanned by Ben, etc.
* Hurley is behind the ticket counter entering the numbers!
* Desmond is in the Pilot uniform helping himself!

The other important tie to a previous episode is Tricia Tanaka Is Dead. Many Hurley and Mr. Reyes clues.
* Hurley and his Dad: Rabbit foot key chain.
* Hurley saved the car in T.T.I.D. Hurley's dad fixes the car.
* Hurley fired the (Trons) in Tricia Tanaka is Dead. Here he calls out for them in the house.
* Old Dharma food here- Old Dharma beer in T.T.I.D.
* Golden Jesus makes an appearance again.

There's so much more from those two episodes.

Things to note…Questions to ask…
* Jack is sleeping!
* 2 baby time line issues- Sun's 6 week or so conception gap w/Jin and Kate's lie/justification of being pregnant with Aaron.
* Sun buys Paik industries, I'm sure to find the island.
* Eko's church.
* Confirmation that Jin can speak and understand English.
* Trons. Transformers
* Cargo. The Oceanic 6 are called CARGO. "Bad Mojo."
* Claire's mom, although presumed to die, Isn't fucking dead! Imagine that!!
* Christian.
* Where's Lenny? Numbers.
* Santa Rosa.
* Michael tells Sun and Jin he and Walt got picked up by ship/boat taken to an {island} etc..
* How many islands are there? Or Ships/freighters?
* Shades of blues and greens.
* Coffee.  Press. Branding. Shock.
* Raft.
* The opening of the plane ramp/hatch reminds me of a scene from Close Encounters of The Third Kind.
* Triggers.
* Images are always tied to the "island". Sounds/whispers-"ISLAND".
* Déjà vu. Broken Record.
* Mrs. Shepherd is wearing her wedding ring.
* Tracks. Tracking.
* The Oceanic 6 don't look too happy to go home.
* 5 Parents. Oceanic 6
* Day 108
* Orchid. Temple. Church.
* Ben passes the baton to John.
* RF interference….
* There apparently is NO electromagnetic force field or "time issue" when using a zodiac raft/boat. Sayid didn't have to travel through and "bad weather" or anything. No Time delay!!
* Will we see Boone, Shannon, Eko and a few other "Dead" people soon? How about another bunch of familiar faces; Blasts from the Past!!!
* What's with you and getting off the island?" – Sawyer to Jack.

Vocabulary…and Research…
Membata: Indonesian for "doubt" or "uncertainty". I don't know. I like to think it's a dance I can do!
Pinto: Portuguese or Spanish for Baby chick.
Cargo: is a term used to denote goods or produce being transported generally for commercial gain.
Branding: Livestock branding, the marking of animals to indicate ownership.
Human branding is the process in which a mark, usually a symbol or ornamental pattern, is burned into the skin of a living person, with the intention that the resulting scar makes it permanent.

The people who live in the hills… A commune of people. Others. Is John one of them? Is Ben one of them? But please remember we learn on the "island" there are Others who don't leave tracks/footprints. Why? WTF? Can they fly? Ben didn't leave footprints in the desert. I'm just saying!!
Hello?!.... Real world…HA!  Do they ever really leave the "ISLAND"???
The oceanic 6… "Children" of the people involved. Who is the next in line to guard/watch the island? Or something even more valuable?

A really important line of dialog that jumps out at me is when Karen tells the Oceanic 6 about the Military facility-PRIVATE. "Your families are already here."  HERE. Yeah, she said HERE.

There's "no place" like home. The Wizard of Oz... Dreams...Thinking something is real when it isn't. Family... Blurred Reality! Dorothy thinks she leaves Kansas and goes to OZ, but in reality she NEVER left home. She NEVER went anywhere! It's the same thing with our cast of characters. They never go anywhere...they're always there. "No place."   Always home.
If we all only had a magic key!

Please go back and check out some very important thing I mention in two past episode clues blogs. They really pertain into this episode.

Love to all who are "LOST"™

I never claim to know everything about the show and my thoughts by no means make me right! Things I share here are my views and/or opinions. I don't claim to catch every single detail either. I hate spoilers! I stand clear of reading certain sites, as to not take me off my own research.
