Watercooler Talk: Lost in purgatory
This is a crack-pot theory, I know, but here is my evidence. Everybody on the island so far has unresolved issues. Exactly the same kind of issues that would trap you in purgatory. Which is why there are really no children survivors because kids don't have unresolved issues. Except that Walt kid and that's because he is a freaky kid. And remember last season when Boone died? It was right after he resolved the issues with his sister -- releasing him from purgatory. Plus, remember last night when Jack first met Desmond on the bleachers. The last thing that Desmond said to him was, "We'll meet up again in the after-life." Or something like that. And then what happens? They meet up again. Also, I think that's why Locke can walk on the island too. Cause wheelchairs aren't required in heaven or hell. I read that in the bible once. Alright, I'm lying about that part. I've never read the bible. I was fabricating evidence, but you get my drift.
And yes, I know that my theory is not fool-proof. Like I have no idea why that dog would be in purgatory because it is a well-known fact that all dogs go to heaven. I figure you gotta bite a lot of mailmen to be a dog and get stuck in purgatory. But who knows? We haven't seen many flashbacks for the dog yet. I'm sure that will come in season 3 when the writers are out of ideas. Also, I don't know why a baby would be born into purgatory either. That just doesn't make any sense. Nor can I explain why there is a polar bear in purgatory. I would think that if any bear would end up in purgatory, it would be that Masturbating Bear on Conan.
So that's my crack-pot theory. I also have a back-up theory too, in case this one doesn't work out. The second theory is pretty simple -- I think the writers are just making stuff up as they go along and they don't know what's happening either. That's my second theory. I think the writers on Lost are genius. And I think it would be even more super genius if somehow the writers managed to connect all of this craziness to the wacky broads on Wisteria Lane. That would be genius!
So, what do you think is going on?
