LOST ramblings

Posted: 5 June 2009 in geekery

Something that’s been bopping around my head for some time:

Richard Alpert is Anubis, the guardian of the afterlife.
Smokey McMonster is Ma’at, the judge of the dead.
Jacob is Osiris, lord of the gods.
his enemy is Set, who kills Osiris for his throne.

Someone we possibly have met is Isis, wife of Osiris who brings him back so he can sire Horus. (Ilana?)
Someone we possibly have met is Horus, or will become Horus, who is Osiris reborn. (Jack?)

Jacob resides beneath a statue of Tawaret, who is Set’s concubine who was once evil but changed her ways and now holds him back on a chain after he kills Osiris. Tawaret is also the guardian of pregnancy. Notice she’s not around anymore.

    The statue was gone in 1977, and the Dharma folks were still getting preggers and popping out kids. Besides, it was leaked a while ago the statue is supposed to be Anubus.
    Which would make Richard probably not Anubus. That makes sense, he has seen a lot, but he still seems really human. I think he’s more a liason for Jacob. Someone who can communicate between a god and a man. And my guess is Jacob simply like him and decided he could live forever. He’s just a priest who is good at his job.
    I am in love with Ilana being Isis. And if Jack is anything but dead I’m going to be sorely disappointed.

    Nope, JJA confirmed that the statue was Tawaret:


    I still think Richard is Anubis based primarily on the images from the temple of Anubis and the Smoke Monster. Richard tends to get people where they need to go, as Anubis did with the dead.

  3. Leigh says:

    Richard is awful easy to suprise and fool though. And I’m not sure about how Anubus interacted with Osiris and Set, but woudn’t he have realized that Locke didn’t just have a “purpose” but was a freaking God, if Richard was a one of those Gods himself?
    :sigh: JJ needs to stop screwing with people.
    Have you heard what they are doing with Juliet? I know the actress is doing “V” next, but I hear that they may be writing her in the way they did Nestor in Season 4.

    ok, i need to ask, what’s the “evidence” that lead you to come to Jack being Horus/Osiris 2.0? how did you come up with that?

    It just kind of makes sense. It’s either that or Sawyer. Someone to take over that position, someone who is a proven leader.
