Do..You..Want...To...Play...A...Game?


Paul (4We8) had a great idea on the AICN TB - to list the 5 questions you would ask Darlton if you had their complete attention (like say, with a power drill or knives or saws...think plastic wrap and Dexter Morgan). I have decided to play Paul's game and have posted my five questions at AICN. Here's my little contribution to the game. YOU are Darlton (Damon or Carlton, short or tall, your pick). Answer my questions as if you really knew the answers. I ask you to seriously close your eyes and channel your inner Darlton, draw on what you know and what you suspect and that idea right on the edge of your sub-conscious and let it go. Hit the COMMENTS button here at the bottom and have a go at it. I am really eager to read your answers. Who knows - we might solve the whole darn thing?

#1. Since Desmond's Human Form traveled through time (came back naked a tip of the hat to Terminator), who (list if more than one) is currently in charge of maintaining and using the time travel tech.
#2. Explain the science or psudeo-science behind the island's ability to remain COMPLETELY hidde
#3. Give me the complete backstory on Richard Alpert.
#4. Smokie: How it was created, who created it, what was it created for, what is it doing NOW!
#5.Exactly what elements of the endgame storyarc (Dharma, hatches, timetravel, time dilation and constants, etc...)did you have in mind as you proceeded through season 1.

Once again, answer the questions, or as many as you care to, in the comments section below. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

That is an excellent question. We actually thought about him saying "your clothes, give them to me, now" but had to scrap it because it was against character. Who is in charge? I think it's safe to say it's a combination of people, but to say there's some kind of central control? That's kind of a god question isn't it? I think we swore off answering those a while back so we can still travel to certain places.

#2. Explain the science or psudeo-science behind the island's ability to remain COMPLETELY hidde

Oh, well if I did that I'd have to kill you. But what I can tell you is that none of the theories are true (even if close) and that the way it hides is not necessarily technological.

#3. Give me the complete backstory on Richard Alpert.

His new name is Ram Dass. That's pretty much all we know so far. He is an enigma wrapped in a mystery, wrapped in a smock getting his eye makeup done.

#4. Smokie: How it was created, who created it, what was it created for, what is it doing NOW!

Shouldn't that have qualified as questions 4, 5, 6 and 7? Slick. Those answers will or will not be revealed by the end of this season, if that's frustrating enough for you. I can tell you that the people you've met on the island so far are scared of smokie, and they've built a security system to keep him out of certain areas. You have not yet met the people responsible for the "building" of smokie. Well, maybe one of them.

#5.Exactly what elements of the endgame storyarc (Dharma, hatches, timetravel, time dilation and constants, etc...)did you have in mind as you proceeded through season 1.

One.

Oh, you asked which, not how many. One of them for sure. The rest of us came to us in simultaneous fever dream after a shared dish of Indian food. We've been catching up ever since.

Darlton, I'm afraid I'm still going to have to cut you into small pieces, as the Dark Avenger calls...and when he calls...well I'm still listening. I'll do the small one first - he'll scream alot, but it will be over quicker.

I have to say...if I wasn't a fan before, I am now. Sis, would you hand me those 2 slides...

5. How did Jack get in the bamboo field, so far away from the rest of the crash?

4. Who are Adam and Eve?

3. Will we see a flashback episode of Penny searching for the Island?

2. Who was the musician who made the password in the Looking Glass? Why is it relevant to Charlie?

1. Had Jack let Locke go down the hole in the S1 finale rather than pull him back out, would he have died?

NO BIG REVEAL HERE -MANY PEOPLE WERE THROWN FROM THE PLANE (BERNARD). THOUGH THE ENTITY THAT IS NOW CHRISTIAN WANTED HIS SON SAFE AND I THINK HE MADE CERTAIN HELANDED SAFELY
4. Who are Adam and Eve?
ISN'T IT OBVIOUS? ONE LIGHT, ONE DARK. IT IS CLAIRE AND SAWYER LEFT BEHIND TO REBUILD THE ISLAND

3. Will we see a flashback episode of Penny searching for the Island?
ABSOLUTELY YES. IT WILL BE PENNY VS DAD FOR CONTROL OF THEIR PRECIOUS ISLAND ALL PENNY WANTS IS DES AND CHUCKLES CAN HAVE THE LANDFILL. SINCE YOU DIDN'T ASK WHY, I WON'T ANSWER - BUT CHUCK WANTS DES AWAY FROM HER SO BAD HE'D WILLING TO LOSE THE ISLAND TO MAKE SURE IT HAPPENS

2. Who was the musician who made the password in the Looking Glass? Why is it relevant to Charlie?
CHARLIE WAS THE MUSICIAN WHO PROGRAMMED THE LOOKING GLASS. WRAP YOUR TIME/WARPED MIN AROUND THAT ONE...BUT HAVE A CONSTANT!

1. Had Jack let Locke go down the hole in the S1 finale rather than pull him back out, would he have died?

NO. BECAUSE, LIKE EKO EARLIER, HE HAD NO FEAR OF SMOKIE AND IT SEEMS TO FEED ON FEAR, I THINK OLE' SMOKIE WOULD HAVE FLASHED OVER JOHN LOCKE'S BRAIN AND IT BORED IT TO DEATH SO HE SHAT HIM BACK OUT TO HIS FRIENDS.

Now, Let me the Fuck Go!!!

He fell out of an airplane.

4. Who are Adam and Eve?

A couple who came to the island long before our story began.

3. Will we see a flashback episode of Penny searching for the Island?

Since a freighter owned by Penny's father is currently anchored near the island, don't you think she might know where it is by now? She might come to the island in Season five to see if anyone but the oceanic six are still alive but I'm not sure you'd say she was "searching".

2. Who was the musician who made the password in the Looking Glass? Why is it relevant to Charlie?

Brian Wilson wrote "Good Vibrations" - another recovered drug addict.

1. Had Jack let Locke go down the hole in the S1 finale rather than pull him back out, would he have died?

Either that or had a wonderous adventure in Wonderland. Nah, probably died.
