The Emergence of Parallel Realities

Chris Seay weighs in on the meaning of Tuesday's LOST episode, "Happily Ever After"


Chris Seay, author of The Gospel According to Lost, chimes in on the developments in Tuesday's episode of LOST, "Happily Ever After." (SPOILERS AHEAD) He notes that it's beginning to become more apparent that the flash-sideways characters are becoming aware of their counterparts on the island, and wonders how it will "change things" when the characters "figure out that connection. Will the two narratives weave into one? How will they utilize their off-island activities to change things on the island?" Seay goes on to say that such knowledge will "ultimately be part of what allows them to defeat the forces of evil, the Man in Black." Seay's new vlog:

Actually...a nonviolent action show would be pretty awesome. LOST becomes goofy when all the characters suddenly go into shooter-mode like they did during last season's finale. Characters like Charlie and Echo were intriguing specifically because they rejected violence as a means to an end (from what I remember). And interestingly enough, those two were the most overtly religious.

Jacob originally came across as a nonviolent sacrificial character during his death scene, except he changed that quality a little bit when he beat the pulp out of Richard Alpert recently (albeit in self-defense).
