Lost Theory

Ok, I’m going to write the following text in white in order to avoid giving away any spoilers for those who haven’t seen last weeks episode of Lost.  Just highlight the text to see what’s there.

I’ve really been thinking since last week’s episode, and here is my theory as to what is going on.  If you remember the scene when Young Ben gave a book to Sayid, did you notice the title of the book?  A Separate Reality.  Now the producers either put that there as a red herring, or they really want us to start thinking about the possibility of an alternate reality having been created in some way.

I believe that a new reality was created when Sayid killed Young Ben.  We now have the reality that we have already seen throughout seasons 1-4 in which Ben is the leader of the Others.  The alternate reality that was created is one in which Ben is dead and Widmore is the leader.  I think we have seen a glimpse of this alternate reality in the scenes showing the aftermath of the Ajira 316 crash.  Sun’s experience in the Dharma processing house with Christian is an example of this. It may even be that the time period of the Ajira crash can be considered as a convergence of the two realities.

If this is the case, then I think the war that is coming up will be a war between Widmore and Ben, and it will determine which reality will become the “real” reality.

Just a theory.  It may or may not happen, but I think it is a good one!

What do you think?
