SPOILER ALERT! Yesterday’s photoset from Mike, depicting an unfamiliar beach camp set built near Camp Erdman on the North Shore, prompted many fans to scour them for clues. Today, Jennie from Denver passes along her own photos from the same spot, one of which reveals a tantalizing link.
The last image in the set affords a good look at a couple of key props. First is an orange life preserver, like those used on boats, suggesting we’re looking at the aftermath of a shipwreck, not a plane crash. The second is a case or box bearing the word “BESIXDOUZE.”
46610 Besixdouze (1993 TQ1) is an asteroid belonging to the asteroid belt. It was discovered by Kin Endate and Kazuo Watanabe on October 15, 1993. The name of the asteroid is a reference to The Little Prince, who lived on an asteroid named B612. The name Bésixdouze is the concatenation of B, six and douze, French for “B six twelve”. Also, 46610 is the decimal equivalent of the hexadecimal number B612.
Spoilerhounds will recognize “The Little Prince” immediately as the title of the upcoming fourth episode of Season 5. And the fact that it’s a French name makes it impossible to not link the name to Danielle Rousseau‘s character. Doc Arzt has confirmed that “Besixdouze” as the name of Rosseau’s boat. But it doesn’t mean that Mira Furlan will neccessarily appear. Listeners of “The Transmission” know only of the pending debut of a “young Danielle Rousseau.”
Special thanks to Jennie from Denver for allowing me to publish her photos!
