After watching the latest episode of LOST (don’t worry, no spoilers here), Mr C and I got into one of those conversations that goes something like – “Was Mr Widmore with Dharma? No, he wasn’t there then. Yes he was, he just was with the others instead. But I thought he was in the army. He had an army uniform. But it wasn’t his. When was that? Would he recognise Locke? Why doesn’t he know who Sawyer is?” I’m sure if you’re a LOST fan, you’ve experienced this kind of thing.
I said, in an off-hand sort of way, when we watch the series through again – which we will – we should make a timeline so we can figure out what happened when and who was where when it happened.
Of course, OF COURSE, the internet has already done this for me.
I’ve visited Lostpedia a couple of times before, mostly for information on some of the more obscure characters who reappear without warning and we’re supposed to remember who they are. Delving into the site a bit further, what did I find? The most awesome Timeline page ever.
Everything is on there, from when Richard Alpert was born, to the exact date Ben finds out he has a tumour. I could sit and read this thing for hours, and to figure it all out, I’m probably going to have to!
I can’t imagine the amount of work that has gone into this. It’s brilliant!
