The 'Lost' Diary -- Across the Sea

5/12/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Welcome back to another edition of The "Lost" Diary.


For all you "Lost" Diary newbies, here's how it goes: I gather with a group of friends watching "Lost," writing what happens on the show as it happens, and throwing in my two cents along the way. Flying solo tonight. Let's roll ...

9:00 -- If I wasn't confused enough by the random pregnant woman who washed ashore, now I have Allison Janney -- easily one of my five favorite actresses --  helping her out. Can't "Lost" ever start off simple?

9:01 -- "The same way you got here … by accident" -- C.J. Cregg

9:02 -- Will Claudia give birth to Jacob, the MIB, or both? My money is on both.

9:03 -- "His name is Jacob." -- Claudia

9:04 -- Oh look, another baby is coming … CALLED IT!!!! Nice touch with the blankets.

9:05 -- OH DEAR LORD -- C.J. Cregg has gone mad. RIP Claudia.

9:08 -- Young MIB found a game on the beach and wants to play with Young Jacob -- who appears to be the random kid Not Locke kept seeing in the forest .

9:10 -- "You're … special." -- C.J. Cregg

9:11 -- "There is nowhere else. The island is all there is." -- C.J. Cregg

9:12 -- C.J. just told Young MIB he will never have to worry about being dead. Just a mother talking … or something else?

9:13 -- Young Jacob and Young MIB were chasing after a boar when they encountered a few other people … and went screaming back to their mommy.

9:14 -- "It's not time yet." -- C.J. Cregg

9:15 -- "I've made it so you can never hurt each other." -- C.J. Cregg

9:16 -- Dear Allison Janney, please stop blowing my mind. Thanks, Daniel.

9:17 -- "It will have to be one of you." -- C.J. Cregg

9:21 -- "Because it's against the rules." -- Young MIB

9:22 -- Young MIB is following Dead Claudia around the jungle, where she has told him C.J. Cregg is not his mother. Add that sentence to the growing list of completely ridiculous things I have written that somehow make total sense.

9:24 -- Young MIB wants to go across the sea, back "home." Keep wishing, kid.

9:25 -- "Whatever you have been told, you will never be able to leave this island." -- C.J. Cregg

9:26 -- "I needed you to stay good." -- C.J. Cregg

9:32 -- Jacob and MIB are playing their little game, talking about "the bad people" MIB now lives with.

9:33 -- "I found a way off the island." -- MIB

9:34 -- Interesting that Jacob and MIB have aged to this point … but apparently they won't for much longer.

9:35 -- C.J. Cregg has decided it's time to pay MIB a visit. I am guessing it won't end well for her.

9:36 -- MIB has been looking for the light for the past 30 years. He appears to have finally found it

9:37 -- "It's a wheel." -- MIB

9:38 -- I can't tell … is C.J. Cregg aging? Or has she stayed the same this whole time? Probably doesn't matter, just curious.

9:44 -- "Jacob … it's time." -- C.J. Cregg

9:45 -- "Just promise me, no matter what you do, you will never go down there." -- C.J. Cregg

9:46 -- "You will protect this place for as long as you can, and then you will find your replacement." -- C.J. Cregg

9:47 --  "Now, you and I, are the same." -- C.J. Cregg

9:48 -- MIB's well is no more … and look, there's black smoke off in the distance.

9:49 -- Whoa, C.J. Cregg kicks some ass, huh?

9:54 -- I have a feeling C.J. Cregg is about to become the first victim of the Black Smoke Monster.

9:55 -- Or a simple knife in the back will do.

:56 -- "Thank you." -- RIP C.J. Cregg.

9:57 -- In the tunnel of light you go, MIB.

9:58 -- And out comes the Black Smoke Monster.

9:59 -- "Who are they? Where did they come from?" -- Kate. And now we know …

10:00 -- "Our very own Adam and Eve." -- Locke

Ask and ye shall receive.I was talking with a few people this week about how "Lost" might end. Of course, none of us knows -- but we've all theorized that the last scene will be Jack and Locke on the beach (ala Jacob and MIB on the beach earlier this season). 

I am pretty sure my exact quote was this -- "I am fine with Jack being the new Jacob. But first I want to see how Jacob became Jacob in the first place."

Ask and ye shall receive. I think what I loved most about this episode was that I got the answers I was looking for … and yet now I have all those same questions all over again -- but this time about C.J. Cregg. Who is she? How did she get there? How did she get these powers?

But I don't think any of that matters. If you think "Lost" is ending without throwing a whole slew of unanswered questions at you, well then you just haven't been watching the same show I have.

I got my Jacob/MIB backstory and that's all I wanted. I would have liked to have seen more of Jacob and MIB on the island once they became who they were -- much like I would have liked to have seen more of Richard being Jacob's errand boy. But that's OK.

I give this episode a B+. I can't put it in the top tier of episodes, but I think it falls just below. It's definitely another episode that makes me feel comfortable about the end of "Lost" -- which is now just 3.5 hours away.

i'll put it in top shelf. fantastic acting from the brothers, fully engaged and so was i from beginning to end, edge of seat time. maybe most consistently best of the year. that's just me though, could be wrong, or maybe indicative of my slight disappointment so far...... regardless, why can't most tv be in this vein.....

I wish they spent only 20 minutes with this info about Jacob/MIB/Smokey. There are too many other questions the viewers have to not use a whole ep. to explain this. I am glad that we know the back story now. So, what are some other questions you all hope to have answered?

This is hands-down the best TV show ever. Well written, wonderfully directed, great ensemble cast and beautifully acted. Music is killer too. I hate, hate, hate to see this wild ride come to an end.......

WTF is MIB's name???? I was waiting with anticipation all evening to hear it and nothing. I'm so upset. I didn't like this episode too much. It gave me gas...no joking. I love the show, cast & writers, but this episode really annoyed me. Thank GOD we got to see Titus Welliver and his rugged goodlooks otherwise I'd really be pissed.

I think C.J Cregg was the black smoke monster, that is how she wiped out the entire village and the well. Also, is why she said going into the light was "worse than death"!

Seriously!?! This episode while mythos wise was good, bc everyone wanted to find out, didn't do SQUAT for the progression of the story. All it did was satisfy some of the mythos questions and left plenty more questions in the mean time.



At the end of the day we don't even know what "powers" MiB/Jacob/CJ Greg have. It's rather silly. I did not appreciate this episode as much as I thought I would. Nonetheless, I am LOST fan and will be faithful til then end.



One Serious Gripe tho: the marbles at the end of the episode DOES NOT MEAN the CC and DL KNEW what they were doing 6 plus years ago, if they did, then this episode would have ANSWERED questions and not created more.



I give this episode a F for story and an A for mythos

What powers did Cj Gregg have?
What powers does Jacob have?
Is MiB dead or is the "light" using MiB as a vessel?
How the heck did Jacob decide to pick the candidates?
What the hell is going on?
If they can't hurt each other why did Jacob beat the **** out MiB when they were kids? Looks like he hurt em to me!
The marbles? really? really? seriously? That's suppose to be the key factor in "us" knowing that DL and CC KNEW from the begining that this is how it was going to end? DUMB, I appreciate the two of you as GODS of writing BUT don't claim something that's not true. I call BS



That's like me saying I know that the sun is going to rise YESTERDAY, how can I prove it, well it rose didn't it? LAME



SO FRUSTRATING! LOVE LOST THO!

I wonder when and why Jacob decides to continue working on the "wheel" that MIB started. Why does he decide it's ok to leave the island and how does he know about the Wheel?

"but we've all theorized that the last scene will be Jack and Locke on the beach"



No way is it going to be Locke. Jack I get, but MIB aka Smokey and Locke don't work. There's one thing that Smokey wants: TO GET OFF THE ISLAND. Locke never wanted to leave the island. He left to bring people back. SAWYER on the other hand is just just like Smokey. He wants off -- My pick for last scene JACK & SAWYER. Don't forget Sawyer still wants to KILL Jack...

I loved the episode, but what it did was answer questions and as per usual leave more questions. For example,
how did CJ Gregg, get these "so-called" powers?
What are the powers?
how did Jacob get these powers"
is MiB dead even tho he is smokey?
Is he not dead?
Why did Cj Gregg kill the Early-Others?



Ok you get the idea, ALSO, the marbles at the end of the episode did not mean that Carlton Cruse and Damon Lindeloff KNEW that this was how they were going to end the series, come on. The flashback to episode 2 was cool though.



THEORY: CJ GREGG got her powers to protect the island from being a President Bartlet Chief of Staff, her and Danny Canonon went to the island to get away (If anyone remembers the West Wing series finale)



Ok so the next episodes SERIOUSLY need to tie everything together, I feel like it's actually giving me stress and anxiety vesting this much time into the show and still being like WTF?



Episode was a B-, with a star!

I have said this since this season started - and we all know that what we think usually does not happen - I still think Jack is the chosen one (I used to say Harley cause he can speak to Jacob, but I think he will live and drink from the pool/wine and stay forever like Richard) Jack found the rocks, now we have to find our dark, because Jack is the light. I don't think it will be dead Locke, I think MIB will smokey himself into maybe Sawyer. Kate won't die and stay with Jack, maybe give birth to the next set of twins and the whole thing will start over.



My daughter said that the woman who washed up and pregnant was Richards wife, Claudia - being that the island is neither dead or alive - so Richard is Jacob and MIB's father - which Jack will become the next set of twins father, if it's Kate who carries them or someone from Jacks alternate universe that washes up on shore and gives birth.



I think the cycle continues through the ages, as we'll maybe see that there were another set of twins going through the same thing.



Now where is Richard and Ben??? And they were the ones who rigged the plane with explosives to kill MIB, again - just a theory
