Lost season 6 continued its march toward the series finale with The Package, the tenth episode of the final chapter. The latest installment of the hit drama focused on Sun and Jin Kwon, whose alternate reality differs in surprising ways from their Island reality. Here’s a moment by moment recap.
I was given the responsibility of monitoring the radio and ensuring our crypto was up to date. This actually was a little more interesting than it sounds. There were the usual calls to the central FOB letting them we were receiving sporadic small arms fire.
At precisely that same time, one deck below in the interpretive center, there is, in fact, something to see out there. A whole room of people lean into the window with their binoculars as a hired ล่ามญี่ปุ่น keeps people in the room posted. “There’s one going by the buoy,” he shouts. With swells of 20 feet or more, it has been a hard day to see whales, he said. On this day, he only sees six or seven. The next day, with calmer seas with only 12-foot swells, he will see 20 whales. But on this day the payoffs are few and far between as the giant curtain of waves steals the show.
As we expected, Kwangchow was a bustling city. Again, there were no hotel rooms available except our nice corner room with a porch, overlooking the huge garden. People from all over the world, with their pink badges flapping in the wind, visited the show from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. and from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. The jewelry section had discussion rooms similar to those we encountered in Beijing, but flooded with buyers and tons of merchandise. We met some old friends from the Company in Beijing and two soft-goods buyers from Phoenix, Arizona.
Far from most viewers’ minds that any problems ever exist with installation of any show, the group recounted dilemmas discovered with design construction flaws, lighting problems, and effects of airflow.
Chemists are located in all towns and cities all over Australia. The Australian chemist does not operate the “soda fountain” type of drug store found in the USA.
Instead of warehousing 1,000 copies of a book in a central repository (or 25 copies for an independent bookstore), a bookstore only keeps enough books to meet expected demand for the next short period. This may be only 10 or 20 books if expected demand is low or unknown. The bookstore company (e.g., Borders) uses POD technologies to produce additional books as needed. Using POD technologies, short runs of books can be produced very quickly. Even 1 book can be economically produced using POD.
So what does it all mean? Beats me. But one thing is becoming increasingly apparent: Faux Locke, maybe more aptly referred to as the devil, needs all six candidates to leave the Island for a good reason. He wants to reinfiltrate the outside world. So one of the six will need to make the ultimate sacrifice and opt to say on the Island indefinitely. Who’s it going to be? Jin and Sun want to get back to one another and to their daughter, so the Kwon candidate seems an unlikely selection. Sawyer? What does he really have to live for off the Island, anyway? Or maybe good old Jack. You never can be sure. Whether or not Kate is still a candidate is up in the air; Faux Locke tells Claire that she’s been crossed off the list, yet she still remained a possibility during the Lighthouse episode.
