Monster mash

More Lost stuff. Remember the plane engine blowing up when a guy got sucked into it in the first episode? Well, some people think that the monster caused the engine to explode. Watch the blurry shape swoop into the engine on the slo-mo here:

By the way, the makers of Lost have confirmed that the character sucked into the engine was Gary Troup, author of Bad Twin, the manuscript that Sawyer was reading in one of the episodes in series 2. Are there more clues in the book, which was actually published?

I did not know that about the engine exploding. When first looking at the real-time explosion, I didn't see the monster at all and, although I saw it in the slow-mo version, wonder if it's really there.

This seems to be a widespread theory, and the image is certainly there in the episode. But is i actually meaningful?

I think the monster is certainly to be reckoned with, but I don't see how it would be significant that it appeared and made the engine blow up. Unless it is a security system (common conception) and deemed it necessary to destroy the plane so that the Losties wouldn't be able to somehow make a make-shift airplane (ala Professor in Gilligan's Island).

Click on the link for theories on the monster.

I find it interesting that maybe the monster is a natural defense mechanism of the island and judges whether someone is good or bad, and leaves them alone if it is not sure of their composure. Couple that with another theory that the Others use it to take the good Losties so that they might be able to go into parts of the island where experiments are being done so that they are not killed by the monster in the process.

Interesting stuff. There's certainly a lot of wild speculation.

I like the 2 different mosters theory. There is definitely a running theme of good vs evil, black and white, and twins (good twin vs bad twin?).

I don't know if I buy the two monsters theory because I think I buy more into people having differing perceptions of the same monster. I think I like that because I find it intriguing how one can look upon an issue and see it full of evil and another can look upon the very same issue and see it full of goodness.

There's definitely a lot of the "two sides" thing in Lost.

But now my brain hurts after seeing this week's episode...
