So, we've got eight months until the next season begins, which gives us lots of time for speculation! With the way this finale ended, anything can happen next season. Here is something that I posted on another forum earlier:
"I think not knowing Juliet's status is going to be much more difficult once the season starts. I think that we'll see what happened to everyone else, and therefore, we'll be wondering about Juliet while watching everyone else survive. We will most likely watch Sawyer grieve over his loss, which will be painful. :-(
I wonder how Sawyer is going to react. I hate to be even more of a downer, but I can see the following scenario happening: Sawyer commits suicide due to the pain over his loss. A short while later, Juliet returns (alive), realizes that Sawyer has died, and kills herself. This would further complement the inevitable parallel to Romeo and Juliet: Juliet appears to be dead, Romeo grieves and kills himself, Juliet awakens and grieves for Romeo before killing herself."
This is just one possible scenario- there are so many different variables to consider here. So, what are your theories about what is in store for Sawyer and Juliet?
