Yesterday we gave you our predictions
on the fate of LOST'
s Jack, Juliet, and Ben. Now in our second-half, we sift through the spoilers, previews, and listen to our hunches to bring you some possibilities regarding Kate, Sawyer, and Desmond.
If 'I do' showed us anything, it is that Kate has long been deprived the opportunity to love unconditionally; thanks to the island, that has all changed now. Or has it? While it appears for the time being that Dr. Jack is going to remain separated, the old adage that "absence makes the heart grow fonder" may be in full effect as the season rolls on. In the official LOST podcast
Cuse and Lindelof said that while she has made her choice, the triangle is not over. I predict that after an extended stay with the others, Dr. Jack will return to find he still occupies a spot in Kate's heart.
Aside from the love life, what about the 'big' thing she and Sawyer were uncovering? Now that we are leaving Alcatraz behind, we can assume we're not going to learn much about it until possibly next season (or not). I predict that the exposure to whatever that was is going to start having some effects on Kate and Sawyer.
Once back to the beach, Sawyer is going to experience a new public persona: Hero. His sacrifices, bravery, and just plain old heroics will earn him the respect of his peers. Expect him to start 'changing' himself, embracing being the good guy for a period of time. But don't expect it to last.
Sawyer, like Kate, posses that free spirit. He also has a very low-life self image. Sawyer is not a noble rogue, taming his grifter instincts is going to be a long process even with the love of Kate. If Dr. Jack does appear and make romantic ripples in the Kate-Jack ocean, expect Sawyer to do something that could mute his endearing qualities.
The latest 'LOST
Moments' clips stress Desmond's prescience, and the awareness of this ability amongst the other beachers; particularly Hurley. So far, we know Hurley asks Locke about it, Charlie calls Desmond a coward and Desmond beats the snot out of him, Desmond saves Claire from nearly drowning, and Desmond summons Charlie and Hurley for a mysterious meeting.
On the rumor-mill side of things, folks close to the shooting are saying that Desmond's flashback is quite warped, as if the events on the island intruded on his past. He now has memories of being able to see the future, even though that doesn't mate with his current time-line. Sounds a bit sci-fi.
That's it for the character segment of this program, be sure to return tomorrow for the ultimate predictions. What we expect will happen over the first six episodes when LOST
