LOST 6X11 (Happily Ever After)

Time for my thoughts on this week's episode. There are numerous sites that do recaps so I'm not going to necessarily do that, but I am going to share my thoughts on what happened.

The icon paintings in my LOST posts for this season were painted by Scott Erickson of The Transpire Project for Chris Seay's book The Gospel According to LOST.


Season 6, Episode 11 - Happily Ever After
~I didn't get to watch on Tuesday night when this episode aired because I was at a work retreat. I was actually kind of thankful when I watched it Wednesday afternoon because there were several times I had to rewind & watch again to catch everything that was happening.
~Love, love, love that this was a Desmond centric episode. He's one of my favorites!
~It was so strange to grasp that it has only been days since Ben shot Desmond. The timeline is sometimes hard to deal with since we get new info only every 7 days & life on the island is continuing without the gaps we're having.
~I wonder how Penny & little Charlie are dealing with Desmond being gone. Does Penny know Desmond is with her dad? Did Charles tell Penny why Desmond needed to come with him?
~Am I right in thinking that we didn't know Widmore had a son? He didn't have a son in the original timeline did he? I was thoroughly confused with that whole part of the conversation. But evidently he was talking about Daniel.
~So strange to see Desmond & Charles working together in the flash sideways. Didn't expect that one.
~Did anyone else panic when Charlie forced the car into the water? I for a few moments thought we were going to have to watch Charlie die again! I think if you were to ask Russ & Damaris, they would tell you that I was screaming at the tv.
~The flashes Desmond was seeing in the flash sideways were almost heartbreaking. Seeing Penny, Charlie, the island, etc. & knowing Desmond had no clue just really got to me.
~I knew as soon as Charles said Desmond had to go talk to his wife that it was going to be Eloise. I was shocked by her reaction though. Guess she is a different person with Charles than she is with others (no pun intended).
~And then, seeing Daniel playing the piano & then coming to talk to Desmond. Priceless!!!! And of course Daniel remembers everything. He has to guide Desmond back to his constant!
~Tears in my eyes as Desmond & Penny finally meet at the stadium. Love, love, love their relationship.
~I'm sure most of us agree that Desmond joining Not John's group with Sayid is all part of the plan to stop Not John, save the island, save the world. I can't wait to see how he does it though!
~And what will he show the passengers of Oceanic 815? Things get more interesting every single episode!
~That's all for this week. Can't wait for the next new episode! I'd love to hear your thoughts & theories on anything I've written about or something you think I might have missed.

There's my thoughts for what it's worth. Tune in next week for LOST 6X12 "Everybody Loves Hugo".


  1. You mentioned that you didn't know that Farraday was Widmore's son, but we learned that last season. There was a scene where Widmore is talking to Eloise and (fuzzy on details here) she makes some comment about sending her son off to be killed (not in so many words) and he says "he's my son, too." (I'm probably remembering that all wrong.) But we did know from last season that Daniel was his son. It was the episode where young Eloise shoots Daniel, I believe.

    You also seemed somewhat surprised that Eloise was Widmore's wife? Was that just for the flash sideways? We learned of their relationship in the 1950s.

    I just realized if any non-LOST-lovers read my comments they would be completely... well, lost! LOL

    I'm completely curious about how Eloise (and presumably Widmore) know about both the flash-sideways life and the island life. And when Eloise told Desmond that searching for Penny was a "violation"... makes me really curious. There's still so much to learn and only a few episodes!

  2. @Paula - I guess that Widmore being Daniel's dad just slipped my mind. I am fuzzily remembering the scene you're talking about from last year.

    Yes, I was just surprised that Eloise & Widmore were married in the flash sideways. I remember their relationship on the island. Just didn't think they'd be together still in the flash sideways.

    I'm so curious too about Eloise knowing about the island in the sideways. Does that mean she was on the island & then left & has nothing to do with the island now or is she just knowing this stuff like Daniel is? I can't wait for tonight's episode!!!! :-)
