Clue #144 - Rachel Blake's Finale


We've got Rachel Blake's final video up in YouTube and we've cut out all the Orientation & Mittlewerk parts that most of us have already seen a hundred times. This video was originally posted on abc.com and we were instructed to go there by Rachel Blake at the end of DJ Dan's live broadcast (see Clue #143). Enjoy...and stick around for our final podcast summing up the Lost Experience. :)

Predictable? Perhaps.

Even so, IMO, any other outcome (like, she WASN'T who we thought she was) on that front would have been disappointing.

What is being whispered when Rachel and Alvar are talking, right after he says he's the one who gave Mittelverk everything he needed to do his dastardly deeds. I have listened about 6 times now...and it seems to me that he's saying..."Shhh...they're trying to...they're trying to..." the whole time that the camera goes haywire during their conversation.

Anyone else got any ideas?

The Podcast had funny parts and more Announcer Johney screwups and one-liners. Rachel sounded as if next door, and LHorse007 ruled the airwaves for the night. He was [u][b]Not ShutDown.[/b][/u]

All and all it was a sorry ending to the game. Like firworks... it was a rush of fire and goodness (Phase 1) an explosion of color and light (Phase 2) and then it faded and fell to the ground as burning embers of nothingness.

I did however like the connections made and friends aquired, while playing and haveing a great time on-line and at real world events.
This has been an EXPERIENCE and a pleasure to do it all with all of us involved. I have learned new things and better ways to solve the puzzles of everyday life. I am sad it has come to an end but look forward to seeing you all agin when the show starts up on the 4th, and firing up the blog and boards once again.

Heres to The LOST Community blog, message board, and chatroom. You've all been great.
In 10 days the fun begins again. :D

Well said, Ded...I agree with you about the ending, and also about the summer of connections through this awesome blog (Thanks so much David, Dan, and William!) and through the message board...a big thanks to DedJezter for being an amazing mb moderator and for all of you for making the message board so successful! :):)

And of course, after we have made such great connections, we couldn't possibly just let them drop after Game was over....so, along with this blog's new LOST Community Blog, we will once again have a companion message board! :) I will be posting more on that on the current message board within the next few days.

I just gotta say thanks to everyone who made this so enjoyable. Even if we saw the ending coming, that's alright. TLE was about telling a story, the same as the show Lost is. Sure, there are mysteries and debates and all that, but in the end it's about a story. TLE was a great story, with great moments, both well told and well thought out. Every story has its holes, but I think we all enjoyed it nevertheless. Thanks again.

Guys, any chance of getting a transcript of this last video?

9/25/2006 05:14:00 AM  
Blogger Dark Angel said...

Hi, The only real inportant stuff was the last five minutes. Rachel comes on Air but doesn't tell us anything we didn't already know (although she does mention Matt the Pale and say he should get out more!). She does indicate though that she is not really sure about who are the good guys anymore . We get a call from a guy called James who has an illegal monitoring staion listening into government broadcasts. He patches in encrypted radio chatter that he has picked up which is comming form a raid on the Hanso Foundation. We hear what we think is Mittleverk being gunned down but it is a imposter. A taped message then comes on, Mittleverk says his work is too valuble and he is elsewhere and he advises the police/special forces or whoever they are to get out of the building, we hear "Oh my God is wired" and then an explosion. DJ Dan advises us to go to ABC.COm and that's it.

There seemed to be a real problems with the phone lines but this might have been people hanging up as a protest. DJ Lena managed to get on and tell Dan that he was speaking Bull and wagging the dog - SHUTDOWN...

That's about it - most of it was more amusing that essential.

Superdifey-
I thought the podcast was largely disappointing. There were audio issues, DJDan sounded like he was talking from inside of a tunnel. Jonny's & Tonya's voices were strangely not and very loud. Also, the call-in phone lines did not work part of the time. TeamLena got thru and was shutdown. LHorse also got thru, but was not shutdown.

Rachel finally called-in (her audio sounded strange too) and really didn't tell us anything that we didn't already know. She did admit that she doesn't know geography. And she said that she broke up the video in so many pieces to protect people because others had died. She wanted to get people watching and talking. That's what the Apollo bars were for too.

The last 4 to 5 minutes is where it got interesting. Tonya made DJDan interrupt Rachel with a caller. It was someone claiming that one of his hobbies was listening to all kinds of signals(corporate, police, military...) He was listening to an encoded highly secure government frequency, but didn't know if it was police or what. It sounded like a police scanner. They had Mittlewerk under survelience, followed him to the elevator and south corridor. It was a decoy. Mittlewerk then came on and said that he couldn't have his work compromised. There was an explosion, presumably he blew up the Hanso Foundation.

Then they told us to go to abc.com to see the video. I thought it sounded like they left the Experience open-ended to possibly bring it back later.

Hope this satisfies you a little!

Blogger Shakey said...

Seriously wasted opportunity to have Rachel has Alvar's daughter. I know it's been said from the beginning that she is but this experience, after all, is inspired by LOST and the TV show is NO WAY that predictable, so this whole thing has fallen flat.

OK her education has been funded by the foundation and she's tracked it all back, but surely a nicer twist would've been Mittelwerk was her father. As he's trained and groomed to be Hanso's successor, Mittelwerk's "flexible" morality is first shown by an affair with Rachel's mother.

But it's done now and kinda crap.

I doubt this is finally over though - expect some PDFs or similar documents to be released during the US's mid-season break (why do you guys have that?) to wrap up this story. Would be nice to have a few loose ends tied up too - McIntyre and Darla were bumped off when they stood up to Mittelwerk, but what about Peter Thompson? In San Remo he was sounding pretty pissed off with Mittelwerk's megalomania - is he going to oppose? Will he also die for it?

Blogger Dark Angel said...

This is the latest post from the Speaker:

"The battle's done,
And we kind of won,
So we sound our victory cheer."

Okay - so the tape's been shown to the authorities AND the world. We ALL know where Alvar is and we ALL know that TWM escaped.

So...

NOW what?

Will Alvar be freed? Or has the Hanso Foundation just moved him to a more secret location?

What happened to TWM?

What's happened to the Hanso Foundation itself? Is it still running or did the authorities SHUT IT DOWN?

WILL Rachel go into witness protection?

Like Arsenio Hall, all these things make me go, "Hmmmmm..."

I think I need to think more.

Good night and until tomorrow.

Good morning everyone. Cant't believe I actually made it to work on time this morning.

Last night was fun, the panic over the feed not withstanding.

I'm a bit disappointed that our big finish was in the vein of "Luke I am your father" since we all knew that already. EVERYBODY knew it....GidgetGirl knew it, Malik knew it. I'm not sure we really found out anything...why was Alvar not a part of Rachel's life? why did he leave her mother? Why the mental health initiative? How/why did Rachel's mom die?

I didn't expect everything to be tied up in a nice little package, but I would have liked at least a moment of "Oh wow. Didn't see that coming".

I do hope that all the loose ends means there will be a sequel. Revenge of the ponytail?

I'll say it here on the new thread, instead of on the podcast thread, that I would like to thank EVERYONE (especially the Admins) for helping those of us who are not internet-savvy to limp through that ordeal last night and be able to experience it (with y'all) live. The chat (my first!) was a blast, and everyone was hilarious! Thanks also to everyone who is re-capping some things, since the connection was so bad. I pretty much missed the whole "ham radio, blowup adventure", all I heard was "kkkkkkkkkkkk....ponytail!....kkkkkkkkkkkkk". :-(

Yes, FYSB, I agree.....one fact about her father is not a big reveal. I wanted to know who her mother was, why the mental org was designed for her, etc. Why not talk about both parents? Rachel didn't wonder how they got together? Riiiiiight. Surely, (if they spoke at the normal speed of most humans) they could have fit that in. Ah well.

Here's to (not) DJ Dan, for shuttin' down the fans! :-( And a huge cheers to all Tee-Lekkers!

Darth Alvar chops off Blake Skywalker's hand and then comes to his senses and throws Emperor Middlewerk down a hatch. Then there will be a party on the island and all the little Joops will play a cute little song.

IMNSHO, Rachel's acting was not only terribly bad last night, but she was acting strangly aloof and rather stuck-up, during her conversation with Dan. As if she was doing him and the world a favor for calling in, when she had plenty of better things to do with her time, than to give him/us any information about herself or THF. I guess now that she knows she's the richest little girl in the world, she's gone all Paris Hilton. :-p

If Jamie's acting prowess is a result of the Alec Baldwin school of acting that she went to, I hope other actors stick with the Strasburg academy.

Hi Capcom,

Yes, I agree I was slightly suprise with Rachel's comments. It didn't strike me as someone who'd discovered one of the greatest threats to civilisation/ mankind, been shot at and chased around the globe.

I still get the feeling there was going to be more to this but either the sponsors pulled out or the fan interest was not enough, I don't know. I mean that whole Apollo Candy thing was a hell of an effort just to tell us about the next DJ Dan Podcast.

snort...Paris Hilton. very funny.

I'm just surprised that the writers would let it end like that, if they knew there would not be a sequel. It was live, they could have changed anything. I would think they would want to give a satisfying ending and make us go "wow". I hope ABC does more with this, otherwise, it seems they showed a lot of disdain for us by leaving every single end loose.

9/25/2006 09:24:00 AM  
Blogger Dark Angel said...

Hi FYSB,

I agree, I'm just worried that there was not enough people participating in the TLE and either the writers (Javi & Jordan I guess) became disheartened with it or the Execs at ABC pulled the funding.

9/25/2006 09:29:00 AM  
Blogger capcom said...

Right Dark Angel, it sure was. And I think that people would have gladly paid $1 a bar, to help pay for a better ending! :-) Heck, I would have sent in a dollar to ABC to help, since I couldn't get an Apollo bar.

And Rachel needs to get a refund from her acting coach. Here's what I would have told her in prep for the role, "Here's your motivation: you have been waiting for 4 months to call into this station and tell the biggest secret known to mankind! And you know that women can't keep secrets! You're like a jumpy horse bolting out of the gate (not a world-weary poor little rich girl blowing off the papparazzi). Now go gettem Rachel-baby, knock their socks off!"

Oh well, those who can't do (i.e., me), teach. :-)

I wonder if a bunch of us emailed Javi or ABC if it would make a difference. Not to complain, but to say how much we enjoyed it and how much more sprite we're drinking these days and could they pretty please throw us a bone with a "where are they now?" or soemthing?

Speaker seemed to hint that there might be more someday on his blog.

Because we're a culture of instant gratification, and we can't stand having one new episode on, followed by two weeks of reruns, then another new episode, then the next week we think there's going to be a new episode but it's another rerun....

Ryandrumz,
I think this is it.

I know a lot of people are disappointed but I try to put myself in the writers shoes. If you just think about the story of TLE from beginning to end (without all the confusion of the actual game) it's a pretty compelling tale with a fairly good cliff-hanger. Speaker summed it up on his post this morning...Now what?

The cardinal rule of ARGs is TINAG (This Is Not A Game). If we play by that rule (like DJ Dan kept telling us last night), what are we supposed to do. Mittlewerk just blew up some military operatives that were trying to capture him and he's still on the loose. Has Alvar been terminated by TWM now that Rachel posted his confession? What has and what will become of Rachel? Did she only have the courage to post her father's confession because she knew he was secure somehow?

Moreover, how will all of this play into the drama on the island with the survivors of flight 815?

Hi TheBookPolice,

I think Shakey was meaning why have a break at all. I am pretty sure Shakey is from the UK like me and here probably 98% of all programmes run straight through from the start of the series to the end. We also get far less (or sometimes no) commercials.

P.S. Dark Angel, insurance agents are important. They help people save up money (albeit via premiums) for rainy days or catastophies when they probably otherwise wouldn't have done so on their own. :-)

dark angel - Ah, but haven't you also learned that we're a consumer culture? ; ) Got to reconcile both demons.

While I'm cool with the German approach (and perhaps this is a European approach) of having a 15 minute block of commericials between programs, I doubt that American advertisers feel that they would get much return on it.

Admin/FYSB,

Last night MTP fired off a general note to ABC after the podcast. Maybe if they got email and snailmail, it would be noticed. I read somewhere that networks consider each complaint/kudos letter to equal approximately 2,000 viewers. Too bad they didn't seem to consider 2,000 X 35,000 for TLE, so maybe they don't think in those terms anymore. :-(

Hi Capcom

Oh I know, It's partly the old communist in me and also I work in liability claims which makes you pretty cynical, especially when everyone things you're the bad guys when we're not.

TheBookPolice - I used to live in the Netherlands and the long commercial breaks used to be really anoying. I guess I was spoiled by the commercial free BBC. Saying that Lost is shown on Channel 4 over here and there were loads of complaints over the number of commercials. We generally have a lot less here both in terms of number and duration.

Saying that we seems to be heading over to the US model over here to a degree, especially with the collosal number of digital channels we have, I don't get any of the subscription movie or sport channels but I have to have at least 300 channels, most of them dire!

Morning all on the morning after!

I had a feeling that more questions will be unanswered than answered last night. Typical for TPTB! Speaker is alluding to the possibility of more to come...maybe. I have to say I'm almost TLE'd out...tired of trying to figure out the why's...a little disappointed in the anticlimatic ending and just accepting it and moving on to the final TLEC Podcast,
Season 3 and The Lost Community.

Boy, last night really was fun though! I think it was a microcasm of what TLE was all about for the whole summer! We were all having a party and anticipating the podcast when all hell broke loose and the stream went dead. We all pulled together and helped each other get through the chaos that was happening...between the IRC and Yahoo chats, people were really trying to help each other out. And when the podcast came back up and started...we all helped each other out again, giving help when helped was asked. I've never seen the chats so full, and it was a blast! Thanks to all who were there for continuing to make TLE a great experience.

Hey all. I have to agree that I was disappointed in the ending last night, but then I just take that as a "we are so smart" moment, since most of us had already figured out the ending. I'm hoping since they left it so ridiculously open ended that there will be another experience, because, even in its lamer moments, this game was a blast. Thanks to all of the admins that put this blog together. Thanks to the Dallas people who made the ABC event worth going to (when are we gonna have a Lost viewing party??) and thanks to everyone on this blog who put up with my dumb questions over the summer.

Thanks TLEC, thanks for giving me something to do. i gotta say this was one of the most awesomest things i 've ever been a part of. yeah sure the ending was predictable, (I called it 2 months ago) but the so called "experience" of the "Lst Experience" was the best part. personally i never went to a website looking for hacked flash files exposing the truth about a false foundation on a hour to hour basis. nor have i ever gone searching the web for a 2X3 inch square with a picture in it (Ha! glyph) ! I never thought this would end, but it has....i don't know what im going to do with my days....David, Thrash, Belly, MTP and all of those TLEC commenters....you guys (and ladies) are my heros.

FYSB, thanks for the mail link. I'll send one off today. Definitely keep it positive starting with a paragraph of compliments and kudos (they are more likely to keep reading :-), and then gently suggest that we need more answers than were given during the podcast.

I feel that even though the game is about the TV show mythology that is ongoing, there is no reason that we can't have some wrap-ups to the major events in TLE. Since the game was mostly a stand-alone event, so TPTB stated, it would be very statisfying to have some closure to more of the clues, mysteries, "facts", and hints that were thrown out. I don't think that's unreasonable, but that's just me.

I love our Lost community. And if that's all I get out of it, I think I'm still coming out ahead. Cheesy, I know, but I really feel like it's the people that were playing that made this game. Though ... I would've like to learn just a tad bit more. Sigh, oh well, what am I expecting from the people who do Lost??

Thank you David for setting up this blog, recognizing my skills and giving me an opportunity to serve and help others... I'm glad I could be here for them and I'm happy to come out of the ARG knowing I did a great job... Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet some of the stars and creators of the best television show in history... it was a surreal experience that, like the ARG, I will remember for the rest of my life... your podcasts were always enjoyable and I enjoyed being a part of them whenever you gave me the opportunity. You helped to make me a huge part of this ARG and I can't thank you enough for that.

Thank you to Speaker... you made the otherwise bland glyph hunts a memorable experience... everytime you had a hand in the deployment of a clue, we knew that we would not be disappointed... I enjoyed chatting with you and loved your video mail... you out-did yourself on every occasion...

FYSB... you were a good player throughout the ARG and then towards the end, out of nowhere you become a comedic genius! You were hilarious... thank you for giving us a reason to laugh when the ARG started to fizzle away...

Fenris... your DJ Dan mixes, your insight, intelligence and sense of humor made for a bleak day if I didn't see your face in the comments... Despite your not being able to make it to the glyph hunt, you've still made an impact in the ARG that will live on in our memories long after today...

MtP... tho I didn't always get along with you or agree with you... you really were a huge part of this game and it wouldn't have been the same without you...

Dennis... dude... I'm sure you know this, but... you're smart...

thebookpolice... sorry I called you "this kyle guy"... you were a really big part of the game and, at times gave insight and intelligence where there would otherwise be a void...

None of this would have been the same without all of you... you've all made the last 5 months an incredible experience I'll never forget... thank you everyone.

Until then, I look forward to the Grand Finale podcast and Season 3!

Oh no!.. i forgot a few...

Maven... I thought you were a guy at first, until we chatted in the research blog chat room... it was cool having someone in the same time zone to chat it up with... You did a superb job on that timeline, I was very impressed!

Rachel... you're pretty cute... if I wasn't already engaged to the most beautiful girl in the world, I might look you up... even tho it would mean that I would probably end up getting killed... on second thought, I don't think I'll be looking you up.. way too much drama for me... work on the all caps thing and your trust issues and maybe we'll see you next year :)

DJ Dan... dude, you're a nut... I don't know what else to say... geez, you're a nut... I'll miss your podcasts, and I'll probably even replay some of them sometimes...

Johnny... you're way bigger than DJ Dan... you need to get out from under his wing and expand... JOHNNY FOR PRESIDENT!

oxillini: our first encounter was your proving me wrong in my d2o theory... i was a little put off by that, but had to admit that you were right... you're very intelligent and gave insight into things the rest of us were clueless about... we needed you multiple times thoughout this experience and you were always there for us... thank you for that... and you're right about the interns... from canadian islands to changing dates on newspaper articles to prematurely released rachel videos, if plot holes and unbelieveable excuses were what we wanted, the interns of the ARG never failed to deliver...

fastenyourseatbelts: :) I do remember that... and I'm glad I encouraged you to post more. It wouldn't have been the same without you... I have to admit, again, I thought you were a guy all the way until I saw your picture from David's Apollo bar post... heheh.. I guess I thought the majority of players were guys... oops :/

alvar: c'mon, dude... how 'bout a phone call or something... you left your daughter in the dark for all this time.. no wonder she has trust issues.

mittlewerk... really diggin' the pony tail, man... if i could still grow hair, I think I'd opt for that do...

Diggity: that was one of the memorable moments... staring at those webcams all day long...

I think I'm going to make up a flash animation of all the most memorable ARG moments...

sheesh... looks like blogger must know the ARG's over too

An Intern's Dream Interview

Job Interviewer:
Thank you for coming in today. How did you find out about the position?

Former intern:
I was posting some clues on Monster for this unpaid gig I was doing last summer and got distracted a piece of gum. So I ate it and then I made a necklace out of gum wrappers.

I wonder whatever happened to those clues?

Anyhoo, As I was admiring my gum wrapper necklace in the reflection of my computer screen, I saw all those job postings and thought, “wait just a minute! This job says must have attention to detail and organizational skills", so naturally, I applied.

Job Interviewer: Welcome aboard!

twinkle: GO LOSTIE GIRLS!!! I was so ignorant for thinking everyone was a guy... there's probably more lostie girls out there than guys...

that reminds me... noblelawyer! I'm so sorry I forgot you... your version of the serenity prayer is another one of the most memorable moments, and yes, you were another lostie girl that I mistakenly thought was a lostie boy... of course you were a big player... aside from the in-game characters, you were the only one I can think of that was maliciously emulated... that's kinda a tribute in it's own way, i guess...

thanks belly, i'd never realized i had put you off with my d2o comments. i was just excited to jump in where i finally had some knowledge and experience! ever wonder if tptb had a thread in the story going, but then looked on here and found out they'd be crucified for inaccuracies. a couple things come to mind as far as that is concerned. i was all excited we'd see some super cool ship from paik industries. turns out they just built a couple quarantine areas on a regular old container ship. trust me, i've been on some cool ships, that one was nothing to write home about.

Hey everyone! Well I see my first post this morning didn't make it- blogger acting up again? And such a shame as it was such a profound thought....well not really.

Despite all the frustrations with the ARG, I've decided to focus on the positive: phase 1 & 2, DJ Dan's first live podcast, Johnny (need I say more), and of course THIS COMMUNITY of people! It was such fun reading all the theories, joking around, competing in trivia, late nite chats. I hope to get to meet some of you someday-maybe some of the west coasters, I really would like to make it to Comic Con next year. (Or maybe if I'm ever back in the Metroplex visiting family I can hunt down some of you Dallas people.) I mean really...even though we complained a lot, what else would we have had to do to fill in the time this summer between Season 2 and 3- a whole summer of George Lopez?! When you look at it that way, this ARG was a great thing. And just in case TPTB are worried that it was a total marketing loss, it wasn't- my daughter is sick this morning and I went and bought some Sprite to help settle her stomach. So there. Anyway, looking forward to Season 3 with you guys! Thanks for the kind words Belly and Twinkle. This summer was definitely a defining experience in my life. Can't wait til the finale podcast...gotta find my microphone!

I can remember back to the day spongebob was being sent everywhere in NYC while the rest of us were watching the web cams and stalking that poor Lymon guy. Probably the funniest moment of the TLE. A bunch of TLEC'ers mugging a Lymon in Times Square. A classic not easilty forgotten!!

Ah..now that was a moment to remember! And then when I found out Spongebob was only 14, I thought "oh my gosh, he was wandering all over Times Square by himself!" (The over protective mother coming out). Glad you were ok Spongebob.
