LOST 6X16 (What They Died For)

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 16 - What They Died For
~Desmond is certainly doing his darnedest to get everyone in the flash sideways to remember to Island. Will they all be drawn to go there? What's the point in making them remember if they don't move forward on doing something about it?
~So beautiful to see Ben's reaction to finding out Richard buried Alex.
~Finally Jacob appears to Jack, Hurley, Sawyer, & Kate. It was interesting to hear the reason for his marking Kate's name out in the cave, but also that it didn't have to stay that way. It was her decision. "It's just a line of chalk."
~Ben appears to jump back to the evil side or does he just hate Widmore so much that he told Not John where to find him. Ben is certainly a character!
~Loved seeing Ben & Rousseau together in the flash sideways.
~What did Widmore tell Not John?!!!!? I'm dying to know. And again I ask, is Ben just hating Widmore so much that he's willing to kill him or has his evil self reemerged?
~Still not grasping why Widmore had to bring Desmond back. He said Desmond is a last resort. Hmm......
~Jacob's confession to the 4 & telling them he brought them there because they were all flawed & they needed the island - powerful! And you had to know Jack would be the one who would volunteer. That didn't surprise me at all!
~The power of Jack drinking the water & it giving him all the knowledge he needs was amazing to watch. The change in him was so visibly evident.
~Had to laugh when it was Ana Lucia who helped Desmond, Sayid, & Kate.
~Can't wait to see Desmond's role in all this & get some more answers. It will be an amazing finale for sure!
~That's all for this episode. Can you believe the end is 2 days away! 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 Sunday for LOST 6X17 "The End".


  1. Hey CC---we're debating over here. When Flocke got to the well, didn't he tell Ben someone didn't help Desmond out, that someone helped him (Flocke) out???

  2. @Amy - Here's what the Lost Wiki says (
    Locke leads Ben through the jungle. Ben asks why he bothers walking if he can be the smoke at any time and Locke says that he likes to feel his feet on the ground as it reminds him of when he was human. They arrive at the well and see it is empty. Locke says obviously Sayid didn't kill Desmond. Ben notices there is a rope hanging in the well. He says that someone helped Desmond out (of the well), but Locke says that, actually, someone helped him out. Ben asks what Widmore said to Locke. Locke tells him that he said Desmond was a fail safe; that if he killed the "beloved candidates" he was one final way for Jacob to be sure that he would never leave this place. Ben asks why Locke is happy that Desmond is still free. Locke says that when he finds Desmond he will get him to do the one thing he could never do himself: "Destroy the Island."
