Image Credit: Mario Perez/ABCLast week’s episode of Lost, “Ab Aeterno,” didn’t give us eternal abs, but it offered us the next best thing: Some answers about the age-defying wonder that is Richard Alpert, as well as those dueling deities, Jacob and The Man In Black. Of course, big downloads of Lost mythology require all sorts of analysis, which brings us to this week’s installment of Totally Lost. Your hosts—who go by the flimsy aliases “Jeff Jensen” and “Dan Snierson”—discuss the significance of wine and corks while examining the increasingly intriguing conflict between Jacob and MIB. You also will enjoy a nice glass of Titus “Johnny Cash” Welliver along with a few teasers for tonight’s episode, “The Package.” In lieu of a thank-you note, share your latest theories and ruminations with us below. Did the Richard Alpert story meet expectations? Was the wine/cork analogy to your liking? Are you any closer to figuring out the end game? (Follow @ewdocjensen and @dansnierson.)
