Uniquely, Miraculously: Cultural Bridges in LOST 6.11 by Pearson MooreLOST Theories, Recaps/Reviews, Season 6 View Comments
Tonight we witnessed unopposable force.
I am not speaking of Desmond’s ability to endure a magnetic field of several million Gauss, or his ease of movement from one spacetime to another. I do not refer to the virtually infinite energy locked in the Island’s depths or in the Monster’s smokey cloud. The force I speak of has nothing to do with personal triumph over adversity, nor does it concern the victory of good over evil.
It is stronger than any physical force. It is more powerful than love. Can a mother forget the child at her breast, lose compassion for the infant she has borne? Yet even if love be abandoned, this remains: Humanity will overcome any obstacle. Tonight we witnessed the unopposable power of human civilisation.

Henry Ian Cusick Talks Love, Fear and Moving SidewaysCast and Crew of Lost, Interviews, Season 6 View Comments
Here’s another interview with HIC, via TV Watch:
It seems up to Desmond to open the eyes of the other Oceanic 815 passengers about the two worlds, the way Charlie [Dominic Monaghan] did for him.
Totally. I think anyone who doubted the Sideways, or thought they were just filler — now you fundamentally know that the Sideways world is so important to the outcome of the Island world. They say we’re driven by two emotions, love and fear, and Desmond is so driven now by love, which is the one we all want to be driven by. What’s interesting, as you’ll see later on this season, is that some people will do good things for love and some will do bad.
In the episode, Desmond starts off angry, and even violent, but by the end, he’s determined to stay and help his father-in-law, whom he previously couldn’t stand.
I actually had a little bit of a problem with that. I had to speak to [executive producers] Carlton [Cuse] and Damon [Lindelof] because I didn’t get it. They said, ‘Think enlightened.’ But I needed something else so they explained to me that Desmond, now having had a glimpse of the Sideways world, is crystal clear on what he has to do.
Why do you think he’s become such a fan favorite?
He’s a pretty average guy who’s been put in these incredible circumstances, and he just tries to do his best. I think audiences get that and relate to that.
You’re currently shooting the finale. What can you reveal about it?
I don’t think anyone has a complete script. Security is tight and [producers] are keeping the final chapter under wraps. The whole last act is missing! And you definitely need the missing pages because, even up to what I’ve read, it’s still not resolved.

Make Your Own Kind Of Music: “Happily Ever After” Recap & Analysis by Chris KirkmanLOST Theories, Recaps/Reviews, Season 6 View Comments
Nobody can tell ya,
There’s only one song worth singing,
They may try and sell ya,
‘Cause it hangs them up to see someone like you …
But you’ve gotta make your own kind of music,
Sing your own special song,
Make your own kind of music,
Even if nobody else sings along …
This week, on Lost: We open on an eye, of course. Desmond’s eye. He’s groggy. Zoe’s there, and she explains that he’s coming out of sedation, and that they had to move him from the hospital. Desmond wants to know where he’s been moved, and he also wants to see Penny. A familiar voice informs Des that won’t be possible, and the plucky Scot looks up to see ol’ Chuck Widmore. The look on Desmond’s face and the sigh of disgust say that he’s not glad to see his bastardly father-in-law.
Desmond is understandably perturbed, and Widmore urges everyone to leave so he can take care of things. Chuck reminds Des that he was shot by Ben. Desmond just wants to see Penny, and Chuck tells him that his wife and son are perfectly safe. Chuck apologizes for taking Des away so quickly, but he had to do it this way because there’s no way Des would come with him if he hadn’t. Come where? asks Des.
“I brought you back to the Island. I can’t imagine how you must be feeling, but if you’ll give me a chance to explain …”
