LOST SPOILERS ALERT
MAN IN BLACK: Do you wanna know what he was thinking while you, choked the life outta him Benjamin? What the last thought that ran through his head was? “I don’t understand“. Isn’t that just the saddest thing you ever heard? But it’s fitting in a way, because when John first came to the island, he was a very sad man. A victim, shouting at the world for being told what he couldn’t do, even though they were right. He was weak, and pathetic, and irreparably broken.
I was trying to get rid of a headache a few days back and watched an old episode of NCIS. The episode was entitled “Enigma” and it starred Terry O’Quinn (who plays John Locke in Lost) as a Colonel who thought the country was out to get him. He ends up being diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic who repeats over and over…guess what?
RYAN: (WHISPERS) I don’t understand…I don’t understand… I don’t understand… I don’t understand…
Two broken people thinking there is a huge conspiracy going on, both of whom utter “I don’t understand” as their character’s last breath…and both played by the same actor!
Cool, huh? Sneaky LOST.
