Anyone watching? I think this season has been pretty exciting. Boy, last night's episode sure threw things in a tizzy! I hope Locke doesn't die. He's my favorite character.

OMG I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!! Me and my friends get together every Wednesday night, cook dinner and watch Lost. And sadly we didn't get to last night, which sucks cuz OH MY GOSH!! Ben scares me.........



I read an article a few days ago that said there's only 48 episodes (3 seasons) left.

You missed a good episode, Kyra.

I actually think the "three more seasons" announcement is a good thing. This should keep the writing more focused on driving toward the finale.

What's the deal with that Richard guy (the guy that recruited Juliet) not aging? Last night, in a flashback scene, he met Ben when Ben was maybe 12 or so and he had to be more than ten years his senior then. Now they look to be contemporaries.

Also, why does he wear eye makeup? :)

I didn't notice it last night, but they actually DID show Jacob for a split second. Until I saw this I thought he was always invisible to us. Take a look: http://losteastereggs.blogspot.com/2007/05/11-frames-of-jacob.html

WEIRD!!

I noticed Richard didn't age either...and he might wear a little eyeliner....maybe the island keeps him from aging...he was hostile, so he really is a native.


I wanna know why Jacob is invisible....and why he said "Help Me."....and Ben is totally evil!!

I watched the first eppisode and was surprised by how it didn't interst me. I tied to watch last night's episode and thought it was really stupid. It is very hard for me to care about tv charaters.

I will also admit to laughing when I watch that red-headed guy on Miami CSI.

I love this show. I think they are in purgatory. All of them have some to confess to. The children can't be born because they have not sinned. Ben let evil in from hell and Jake is Satan so he has to keep them under control or he is out (back to hell).

I wish I could make guesses like this at the Ball!!

Man, now I'm even more excited for next week!! Is next week the season finale or is that 2 weeks?

Yeah, I thought the purgatory thing for a while, too, but I'm now convinced it's not anything like that. Today I was thinking that Jacob's powers may have resulted from the original "incident" at the Swan station (the one that required them to enter the code into the computer to properly vent the magnetism or whatever). Maybe he was in the station and the incident gave him superhuman powers. Desmond, after all, can now see into the future after having been there for the final incident at the station.

I'm not sure if next week is the season finale or not.

I don't think so. I think that started this season. The finale last season was the Swan station getting destroyed.

Another unanswered question is Rousseau. Supposedly she's been on the island for 16 years. , yet she claims to have never seen the others (at least before the crash survivors arrived). She says she only knew about the others based on hearing whispers in the jungle and them allegedly kidnapping her infant daughter. Now, doesn't this seem a little odd considering all the activity that was going on on the island? There's definitely more to know about her story. It should be interesting to see what she's going to do with the dynamite she took from the Black Rock a couple weeks ago.

I don't know why I continue to watch this crappy show. It jumps the shark every single week yet there I am watching away.

Anyone notice that the same song played on the VW mini bus when Hurley and co started it as the day Ben killed his dad?

This show will end with Hurley waking up just as the plane is beginning to crash. The whole show is a Hurley dream.

That's soo funny that you mention jumping the shark! I just learned about that in my TV class like two weeks. I agree though, this show is terrible, but I'm so sucked in I can't stop watching it!!

I did notice about the VW bus too.

I think the creators have already admitted that the show wasn't going to be a dream. If it turns out to be, I will write a very angry letter to ABC.

My wife (who doesn't really watch) reminds me just about every week how bad an actor Matthew Fox, who plays Jack, is. I have to agree. He seems to have exactly one emotion he can work with.

One frustrating thing on the show is how everything is such a big secret for everybody. Everyone seems to intentionally hold back important information from the other characters.

knelson

Yeah, pretty wild! Some people are speculating that from here on out we'll see the characters back on the mainland presumably rescued and we'll need to piece together what happened based on their flashbacks to the island. Sounds possible to me!

Who do you think was in the coffin?

Depends if the season arc is about what happened between the Island and the flash-forward, or if the arc is about getting back. I am going to guess the former, with the getting-back arc only being the last few episodes of the series. The flash-forward was probably to lower the frustration level of people complaining about the high ratio of questions-raised versus answers-given.

For the coffin, Jack said neither friend nor family. If it was anyone on the island, I would've thought he said "friend". Ben wouldn't fit in either category, but why would Kate in particular show up? That's why I thought "Kate's mother". Then again, no one showing up at the funeral is kinda suspicious.

Unless it's someone he would consider a friend now, but subsequent events will change that friendship.

Interesting the aging thing cropped up again. A couple weeks ago in Ben's flashback we saw when he first met Richard. At the time Ben was a child and Richard was an adult, now they seem to be contemporaries. Last night Locke was Walt and Walt was clearly older than he was. My best guess is there's some kind of time rift occurring on the island and time is moving more slowly there. This would imply Ben left the island for a significant amount of time allowing him to "catch up" in age to Richard.

May 24th, 2007, 12:06 PM
Who was in the coffin? Maybe James "Sawyer."
He had no friends anywhere, island or mainland.

But the "flash-forward." Is that really a "flast-forward?" Jack scremed at the new Chief of Surgery to get his (Jack's) father down there and see who was drunker. He has the prescription from his dad at the drug store. That kinda led me to believe it was a pre-crash scene.

Could it be that he and Kate were just somehow connected beforehand, and that Jack has a long history of pulling people out of the wreckage?

They kept calling him a hero - could he be connected to the tv show Heroes? Different networks, yes, but hehe, wouldn't that be interesting?

I thought that too, but then remember when he was talking to Kate he was tallking about how he didn't want to be a hero and he didn't want to pull people from burning wreckage anymore. He also said that it was a mistake and that they should never have left and had to go back. And did you see when he was in his apartment he had all kinds of maps and stuff laying around. He's trying to get back to the island.

knelson
May 24th, 2007, 12:26 PM
Yes, it was definitely a "flash forward." I'm guessing not everyone made it off the island and that's why Jack wants to return. Before they revealed it was a flash forward I actually thought something was strange because Jack was using a Motorola RAZR, and it those wouldn't have been available before the crash.

I'm now second guessing my opinion that Walt was too old. Did anyone else think that? It could be just that the actor playing Walt shot up a little since we've last seen him. Anyway, at the time I thought it was a conscious decision to make him appear older.

Too bad about Charlie. You might question why he didn't just leave that room and seal the door behind him (or just swim out the porthole after the water completelt filled the room). I think he felt he had to die to fulfill Desmond's vision otherwise everyone else might not be rescued.

Kinda silly that Charlie knew how to make the keypad play "Good Vibrations" without ever having touched any of the keys previously, but I'll let that one slide! :)

Walt was young on the show, yes, but he is/was at an age where kids shoot up rapidly. He was taken almost two full seasons ago, so it seemed logical that he would be older & taller.

I get that Locke wasn't dead & that he would be saved by the island again, but his changing loyalty is starting to p**s me off.

As for Charlie & "Good Vibrations", she told him the beginning of the code, so he knew where to start. If you think of the key pad like a phone keyboard, it wouldn't be hard to follow through. The blonde gave him almost the whole thing, so he just had to follow through.

BTW- How many lives does Mikhail (the one-eyed guy) have anyway? Is he part cat or something?

knelson
May 24th, 2007, 02:23 PM
Something that just struck me. Locke wouldn't kill his dad--someone who certainly deserved to die if there is such a thing. He never killed Ben when he had the chance, and couldn't follow through with his threat to shoot Jack last night. However, he had no reservations whatsoever in throwing a knife at Naomi and presumably killing her.

He's been vibro-fenced, shot by desmondo, and grenaded. I don't think it is too far fetched for him coming back from the dead after the death by vibrofencing; and shooting someone, you can always miss. But if he comes back again after the grenade, something is up... he'll be like the cursed pirates from Pirates of the Carribbean.

Sorry Craig - it's like swimming some events. You have to stick with them a full season to fully appreciate them. Once, twice or even three times won't help with becoming familiar enough to want to continue with them. Try giving it an entire season, instead of a snapshot, before you make up your mind.

On the other hand, a 200 fly isn't for everyone...

Actually my husband got hooked just this February and now does not miss it. Lots of people like it and watch it. Trying to puzzle it out is half the fun. Each to his own on his likes and dislikes.

I think it was Ben in the coffin, because he lied to everyone, so he would be alone. Kate said she had to get back to "him" so that might mean she had to get back Sawyer. If she might have been pregnant on the island, than he would have wanted her with him when they got back. Of course, there is the question of Kate's federal charges....does she just get to walk away from that?

My wife doesn't watch the show either and doesn't get it. She wasn't really paying attention last night, but something happened and she asked me what was going on. I told her it wasn't worth trying to explain it to her! You can't just start watching and pick it up in a few minutes.

My mom was watching last night with me. She has been reading or playing sudoku during Lost all season, and at the end of every show, asks a "huh - what is going on question." Being a good son, I told her that she may want to prepare to get mad at me for refusing to answer her question because she hasn't paid attention all season. I tried to answer as best as possible, but she still didn't understand (would have helped to pay attention) and she got mad at me anyways...

I have a feeling we might not find out for another couple years, though!

From screencaps I've seen of the clipping Jack tore from the newspaper the person who died's name is Jo_ _antham (you can't make out the middle part of the name). Of course it could be anyone. It's possible it's someone we know and they changed their name for whatever reason once they got off the island.

Mswimming
May 25th, 2007, 02:04 PM
Remember, Sawyer's name is an alias taken from Locke's Dad. I don't think we know what his real name is. So if it's sawyer, we may not recognize the name if they use his real name in the clipping.


But yeah, why isn't Kate in jail? I can't imagine she is still on the run.

And who does she have to get back to. I don't think its sawyer. Kate was driving a rather nice car.

Who is the kid in the emergency room? Claire's baby grown up? aka Jack's nephew.

How the heck did Mikail survive a spear gun shot through the chest?

Why didn't charlie get out of the room and close the door behind him? Or try to swim out the port hole? I think he does. The last shot seemed like foreshadowing to me with the port hole in the background.

hmmm.

knelson
May 25th, 2007, 04:45 PM
I think Charlie feels it's his destiny to die and he won't even try to escape.

The kid in the hospital--I assume--is the kid Jack pulled from the car. Jack also pulled the mom from the car, but I doubt they have any connection with the 815 crash. Or maybe they do--everything seems to be connected one way or another on the show! However, it's doubtful it's Aaron (Claire's son). The paper Jack is reading is from April, 2007. The crash occurred in 2004, so Claire's son wouldn't be that old.

Mikhail is a tough SOB! Then again, so is Locke. Not only did he survive getting gut shot, he had the strength to tromp across the island to the radio tower and throw a knife at Naomi! How in the world did he know everyone was at the radio tower anyway? I'm speculating he, like Desmond, is getting premonitions. Probably something to do with them both being in the hatch when it was destroyed.

Hello Everyone,

You know when the show first came out I never wanted to watch it, but then a friend let me borrow season 1. So I started watching it with not much interest at first. Then I kept watching and I have to admit I grew more and more interested with each episode. You really have to follow it from the beginning to really be captured by it. I watched season two in a few days. I could not stop. Now I watch every episode. I sometimes wonder if they are just lost souls connected to the island because that is the symbolic place where they collide. What I mean is that in their lives they have all crossed each others paths either directly or indirectly. Did you notice that? So this island is the point of crossing. They are dealing with all their problems that pop up in the flash backs. The island helps them find that peace somehow. When they die they pass on to where they are supposed to go. I don't know if this is even close, but it is just an idea. I guess we will see eventually, huh?

murph
May 26th, 2007, 01:56 PM
About the flash forward - maybe by returning from the island their fate was somehow altered. It's as though the crash never occured and their lives turned out differently. Obviously though Jack and Kate know the crash occured.

I had to wait weeks, WEEKS I tell you, to catch up with you lot on the other side of the pond and I'm damn sure that I'm going to post my thoughts now - even if they are nearly a month late. . . .

1) I think the guy in the coffin in John Locke - hence the neither 'friend nor family' comment and nobody turning up for the funeral.

2) Why did Jack refer to his father when in the hospital (in what I assume was the flash-forward)?

3) Why are so many of the British accents painfully bad?

4) Where did Mikhail get a hand grenade from anyway?

5) Why would Richard (the amazingly ageless mascara wearing Other) follow Ben as leader when he'd been there longer and is older?

6) Is John Locke really a 17th century philosopher?

7) Why were Paulo and Nikki killed off so quickly?

8) What are we going to do until February?

That is all.

1) I agree-Locke in the coffin. He's changed sides so many times I can see no one caring to show up.

2) Jack's dad was an alcoholic. Jack turned him in for operating while drunk. Jack was drunk in the scene & asking to operate. I think he was making a point that it was ok for dad, so it should be ok for him.

3) I think some of the accents are supposed to be Austrailian.

4) First, you have to explain why he's still alive. He's got more lives than a cat.

5) Better questions is WHERE does he get his mascara? Really, do you see any of the girls wearing that much make-up?

7) A better question is where the heck did they come from in the first place? Sawyer had the best line a few episodes after he got back to the beach, "Who the h**l are Paulo & Nicki?"

8) Well, on this forum we could start our own "Lost" storyline thread. Based on the strange twists in the Horror Story Thread, we could be budding writers for the show!

I think Ivor was talking about where Jack says something to the effect of "go ask my dad, upstairs" as if his dad were still alive, even though supposedly Jack retrieved his dad's body in Oz and that's why he was on the flight to begin with.

No, but Kate always has that hot sheen of sweat thing going! Really most of the Losties are doing a nice job with their personal hygeine. Maybe not quite up to Gilligan's Island standards, but good nonetheless ;)

Yes - sorry, that's what I meant. Maybe we'll find out that Jack's dad was not his biological father and that actually he was secretly fathered by the guy who pretended to be Locke's dad and Sawyer's nemesis who is now remarkably reincarnated after conning Mikhail out of his nine lives trick.

Or maybe Jack's dad himself has been reincarnated by the power of the island along with Hurley's girlfriend, Shannon, Paulo and Nikki.

Then again . . .

And though some of the accents are indeed meant to be Aussie a fair few of them are meant to be British, but come out sounding Aussie-ish.

Charlie, Desmond, Penny, Naomi etc. are all Brits and (obviously) their accents are spot on, but there are loads that are laughably bad.

Charlie's brother Liam, for example, does a bad British accent which is very annoying. Don't mind me though - it's just a pet hate.

On the subject of makeup - how do both Jack and Sawyer manage to have exactly the same amount of stubble all the time whilst never shaving? Is that the key to sleeping with Kate?

Bump for Season Four! Who watched it? I thought it was a little slow, actually. They didn't reveal a whole lot more. We do now know six people got off the island (Hurley's reference to the "Oceanic Six"). We know three of them: Kate, Jack and Hurley. Who are the other three?

Another thing that crossed my mind. Why isn't Kate in jail?

OH MAN! Soooooo good! I agree that it was a little and didnt' do much other than raise more questions.

I was wondering about the other 3 too...that's hard to say considering how many survivors there still are and quite a few are important characters.

My thing I wanna know is what is going on with Loche!? He's crazy. And I have a feeling that Hurley is going to be a really central part of things from now on.

I actually thought something was strange because Jack was using a Motorola RAZR, and it those wouldn't have been available before the crash.


Only it wasn't a RAZR but a KRZR; I have the same phone ;)

Sorry, didn't see this thread here until today. I've been watching this show pretty seriously for the past 2 seasons or so.... I have long flights (to/fr Germany) in mid-Feb, and I'm considering buying season 1 from iTunes to keep me occupied during them (but if I did, I probably wouldn't sleep either).

Anyway, I was out of town on Thurs for work, got back to my hotel and just happened to see the last 5 min, which ruined it for me when I watched the dvr'd version at home over the weekend.

No, they do little recaps before each show that will usually be enough for that show.

However, to get the overall whole picture (and if you like the show), you'll probably want to go back and watch the earlier episodes at some point. If you have Netflix, you can get them through there...or like I said in an earlier post, they are all available on iTunes (you don't need an iPod to watch, you can watch from your computer, but an iPod makes it more convenient).

Fort,
I hooked my family after watching the 1st episode of season two. i was very lost (har har), but my family was too... so we went out and borrowed someone's season one and caught up in two weeks.
After that worked so well, we've ended up buying a season of certain shows for Christmas (different show per kid) and watching as a family, one or two episodes a week. its kind of a neat way to watch something together, on our own pace, esp when there's nothing on TV.
It may be a bit much for mini fort, but something to think about...

Those people really should have practiced parachuting a little more before getting to the island! :)

I thought last night's episode was quite thought-provoking. It sure looks like Oceanic is trying to cover-up what happened to flight 815. I think they planted a fake crash with dead people strapped inside in a place they knew it would be found. I think Oceanic is just a front with the real purpose being to criss-cross the Pacific in hopes of finding the island, and they succeeded. With the unfortunate side effect of the plane actually crashing on the island with survivors aboard...

It pissed me off last night that it was Locke in the coffin. He's my favorite character! I also don't understand why the Oceanic Six all seem to hate him so much. What did he do? OK, he stabbed Naomi, but in light of what happened subsequently with the freighter people it's pretty obvious he was correct in being wary of them. And he certainly isn't the only one with blood on their hands.

Season 4 wasn't as good as the first three. Plus, except for the Locke in the coffin ending, the finale tied too many things up in a neat bow and cut back on the cool mysterious vibe of the show.

And why was Locke in the coffin exactly? Last we saw him, he was alive in the Orchid. How did he get back home? Did I miss something? I guess that will be explained next season. The Oceanic 6 don't like him because he blew up the sub, is too mystical and he marched half of the survivors to the barracks where they were all slaughtered by nasty Widmore freighter people.

No. Keep in mind that's about three years after they left the island. There's still lots to fill in between them leaving and Locke's death.

I thoroughly enjoyed this past season, after almost ditching the show after a sorry season 3. I think there are about ten zillion ways the show can go next year, which hopefully will be well done. Jack has some work to do sobering up and toting Locke's smelly corpse back to the middle of the ocean to find the island.

This article seems to belie the "cheesiness" comment just a bit. http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2008-05-28-lost-time-space_N.htm

Still surprised that Locke was in the coffin, not Desmond. It's odd that Locke would end up in LA when he was so committed to the island.

Does any one think Claire, Michael and Jin are really dead? I remember a flash forward where Jin was saying he'd only been married for 2 months, so I'm assuming he's not dead.

Why did Christian only pop up this season?

Does anyone think Juliet is still an Other? She didn't seem very surprised to see the freighter blow up. And she wasn't too anxious to get off the island when she had the chance.

I wish Jack were a better actor. He doesn't do a very good addict imitation. Did he go off the deep end because he felt guilty about/responsible for the freighter disaster?

And what is Sun and Widmore's common interest?

I believe that episode contained flash backs and flash forwards.
If you recall, he spent the better part of the *flashes* getting that panda and getting to the hospital. We were led to believe throughout that episode that he was getting it for Sun, but only to find out a twist... it was for the parents of some business associate, which, I think, occurred before they left Korea, and that Jin was dead (or at least not there and not going to come by)when Sun was giving birth to their child.

Sun/Widmore... perhaps sun wants to get back to the island, perhaps to find Jin. Widmore wants to find it.

I'm most interested to find out what happened to the island.

I just googled Lost blogs. It would take weeks to read that stuff!

As one mentioned, if they all go back to the island, there could be a Sawyer-Kate/Jack-Juliet hookup reunion. Quite a few posts point out that Bentham may not be Locke. (Very cool use of philosopher names on the show.) I saw one post speculating that perhaps Widmore is good and Ben is bad. (Why do we think Widmore is bad? Because Ben, the pathological liar, told us so.)

This is one of the best shows on TV, and it makes having a plasma TV worth the effort (true, I won't shell out $$ on an expensive swimsuit, but would on a tv). Anyway, the scenery is just amazing, but did anyone catch in one of the far-out shots you could almost see a town? Much of this was shot on-site in Hawaii.

I'm also amazed how they went out of their way to get the Korean language off to a T. I studied Korean while in the Army (it was my job), and not only did Son/Jin use it well, but they got the accent right for Jin's father (he was from a fishing village). If anyone remembers MASH, some of that was actually the language, but some was just jibberish.

I'm really going through withdrawl now, without Lost for another 7 months. At least we actually learned something this season, much of the past just seemed like a tease.

I thought tonight's episode was great. Much better and more intriguing than the first two. So here are some of my random thoughts/questions:

1. Who was the woman from tonight's episode holding Daniel at gunpoint that looked so familiar? Could it be Charlotte's mother? Charlotte was born on the island ... Looked a bit like Rousseau too.

2. Was the freighter "in the radius" of the first flash? If so, they could all be alive.

3. What really happened to Claire? She's definitely not dead.

4. Is Daniel telling the truth that you "can't change the past"? Or is he saying that to get people off his back? He seems to think Desmond can change the past?

5. Was Daniel on the ancient Black Ship that came to the island with Richard and others? He seems to know everything and was there during the Dharma Initiative.

6. Who's sending the lawyers to Kate's house? Anyone think it might be Sun?

7. What are the whispers on the island? Could it be the voices of the survivors traveling through time? And what is the damn smoke monster?

8. Are just the survivors traveling through time? Are the original inhabitants traveling too? If not, why not?

9. And why do they all HAVE to go back to the island?

10. What is this "constant" business? Some, but not all, have to have a constant to not become sick like Charlotte during time travel?

11. What was with the random appearance by Anna Lucia?

12. What is this "game" exactly that Widmore and Ben are playing? Widmore broke the "rules" by killing Ben's daughter.

13. Are we seeing any past or future selves of the survivors?

No way. He's playing a "game" with Ben. He just "broke the rules" by offing Ben's daughter and he knows Ben's deeply angry. He's so arrogant that I'm sure he think he can protect his daughter better than Desmond. Plus, he'll want to keep tabs on what Desmond is doing vis-a-vis the Island/time travelers, etc. If he really doesn't know where the Island has gone, he may think Desmond can help lead him back to it. Although since Sun is apparently going back, and she is in cahoots with Widmore, that's another avenue of information.

More interesting is the fact that Widmore was there in 1954 with the original inhabitants.

No, "future Ben" is fine. He was last shown getting knocked out by an oar wielding Sun (OK, fine other than being out cold currently).

I'm very confident that young Ben is not dead. Heck, remember a couple seasons ago when Michael crashed his car in New York after returning from the island? He hardly got a scratch. Also both Christian Shephard and John Locke have seemingly been resurrected by the island, so I think it's pretty safe to assume 1977 Ben will not be killed by Sayid's gunshot.

I thought it was pretty clever to leave it unresolved whether the bomb worked and have the two simultaneous timelines. The temple "others" add a new element of mystery to the plot.

I'm not sure Jacob is "good" either. Whenever he time traveled and appeared to one of the survivors, he never actually helped them.

Jakob actually did help Locke, when Locke was pushed out the window by his father aka Sawyer- the guy who Sawyer (james ford-ahhhh) is looking for- Jakob touched him, he was dead.
The forum theories is the smoke monster was Christian as well.
Maybe the temple contains a fountain of youth for richard.
