Ooh! More Lost Hangman!

This drives some people completely batty, but since I'm never looking for spoilers, I just find it funny. Michael Ausiello, formerly of TV Guide, now EW, is the spoiler-man on the scene for Lost. But sometimes he just likes to play along with everyone, making the spoilerholics furious that he just won't spill outright.

In the most recent column about Lost, he was asked what would prompt the Oceanic 6 to return to the island? At the end of season 4, we see Ben telling Jack they must return, and it looks like they will. If that happens in season 5 (which I would assume it would, since we don't have a lot of time left to play around with), why would they? Ausiello has already heard the answer from the Lost peeps, and here is his response:

Ausiello: I'm told there are a whole host of reasons, not the least of which involves * ****** ****** ******* ** ****** *****. Or so I hear.

So what could the solution to the puzzle be?? 8 words, with respective numbers of letters in each word: 1, 6, 6, 7, 2, 6, 5.

A letter saying Bentham is insano Locke?
A pained Sawyer warning to forget hatch?
A Dharma spider infects or killed Locke?

Let's come up with the craziest solutions we can. And then create scenarios in which they are true. :)

A Saywer Juliet romance so upsets Linus.
Seeing how crazy he's gone before, and how he's manipulated feelings to get what he wants, maybe this whole thing is his way to win Juliet.

I Penny's father arrived at Jacob's cabin.
A cryptic telegram, received in the dead of night, motivates Ben to round up the crew to head back and save the island.

A memory proves Richard is Aaron's daddy.
Aaron is now a teenager with mystical powers, haunted by the memory of an ageless dark-haired man. Only he can persuade Kate to go back.

This has nothing to do with the LOST hangman, but I just wanted to tell you that I think your blog is awesome. I found it on accident last year when googling info about LOST and I come back to it several times a week for new postings. I was raised on the television, so I love that other people are just as obsessed with pop culture and trivial facts as I am.

You're one of the top people on my list of favorite Canadians along with Will Arnette and Perry Mason and the cast of Kids in the Hall.

Anonymous: Wow, you totally rocked that hangman. I love all of them. Way better than my feeble attempts!

Neonmoon: Ok, you just gave me my favourite comment ever! (See, you stroke my ego, I anoint you favourite comment ever.) Thank you! I can't believe I was just named in the same sentence as Will Arnett and Kids in the Hall. You've just made my month. ;)

Ooh, fun!
'Cause I'm a giant dork.
To wit:

2 cloned Lockes hunting an insane Sayid.
a crazed Hurley meeting an intact Libby.
a second Daniel Faraday in Goryeo Korea.
a Dharma worker perched on Frank's condo.
a zombie Cooper killing my lovely Penny.
1 mental spinal surgeon on lively Oprah.
a mother seeing Claire's in danger again.
a lethal Aussie psychic in Austen house.
R. Alpert coming through to kidnap Aaron.
a sleuth learns Widmore is boning Helen.
2 Others taping Desmond in shower naked.
a mellow Sawyer married to Juliet Burke.

But seriously, folks...

I'd be willing to bet that the notion of "2 recent allies seeking to kidnap Aaron" isn't far off the mark. Ben's the master manipulator, and the opportunity to use not only Jack's relatively newfound knowledge (and accompanying emotional guilt) regarding Claire's parentage but also Kate's relatively newfound responsibility (and accompanying emotional leverage) regarding Claire's offspring in one convenient scheme sounds perfectly tailored to him. Plus, it radically complicates Jack & Kate's relationship, which would be soooo very 'Lost,' don't you think?

PS - I won't tell you how long I spent coming up with my goofy first-comment list (as its mere existence should be embarrassment enough), but suffice to say that I missed dinner Friday night, so... thanks a lot, Nikki, for contributing so effectively to my ongoing diet.

I didn't hear about that person on Lost, mostly because I avoid spoilers and many of the people reading this site do, too. A lot of people will be disappointed to read that, so I've deleted your comment (sorry! You know I love comments from you!) and the one following it just to avoid any upset. I hope I'm not coming off as dictatorly... but I know I would have rather had the surprise on the show rather than be spoiled now.

I guess you don't want to know that Sawyer and Desmond both die in episode one, huh. Of course I'm kidding.

The Chapati Kid said...

Oops! sorry about that! I didn't realize it was a spoiler. I read about it on Perez Hilton, so I thought it was common knowledge. They didn't say where or how. My bad! I promise not to do it again. It may not even be true, since half the stuff you read on there is all bollocks anyway.
