We are now a third of the way through Lost series 6, and because I was able to watch the most recent episode in Aberdeen as it was broadcast on Sky, I’m up to date with the new season for the first time.
That has allowed me to delve, free from the risk of spoilers, into the ever-helpful resource that is Lostpedia. Essentially a “Lost” wiki, Lostpedia contains a myriad of pages on the characters, events, places and even mythology of the show, providing the kind of detail that you can too often miss when simply watching episodes.
Series 6 hasn’t been exactly the most bewildering but it’s still been helpful to remind myself of a few facts and get my head straight about the compelling “parallel universe” basis of the series. It’s too early in the series to speculate how things might end, but there are so many options and possibilities, as Lostpedia outlines, and while we’ve had several mysteries explained there are still more to be cleared up.
Alas, like a briefly-passing portal in time, my ability to delve into Lostpedia will be… well, lost as of tomorrow, as the USA airs the next new episode, Lostpedia fills with new spoilers, and I have to wait for the next installment to arrive in the post from Justin.
I can’t wait. I wonder what I’ll do once Lost is over?
