    Favorite line of the night was when Flocke told Jack "it's alright. You're with me now." Nice double meaning.

    Don't forget Richard and Ben off doing whatever they're doing.

    As for Sun's not speaking English on the island, I can't think that subplot we just saw wrapped up is all. That'd be kinda pathetic (which they even addressed by having Frank say "we're supposed to buy that??".

    I think sideways Sun slipped into island Sun a bit, which is why she lost the ability to speak English aloud.

    In the latest podcast, Damon Lindelof said it was really nice for Terry (O'Quinn) to suffer for his art like that. :)

    Richard still wants to destroy the plane. Last week Ben and Miles went with Richard and split from the candidate group.

    Of course that Alternate Jack would be the one to operate on Alternate Locke.
    I kick myself for not seeing that coming.

    So is Ilana going to be Kate's lawyer as well?

    And was it just me of was Desmond coming across as creepy when talking to Claire?
    I was surprised she actually went with him.

    Count me as one who doesn't think that Jack died on the beach. He was just knocked silly.

    Then why did they clearly show Jack in a daze and hearing muffled noises due to the proximity of the blast? No, he was definitely alive ... just concussed.

    Jack's explanation to Sawyer just before exiting the boat was almost verbatim the same as Locke's explanation to Jack in S01 about the Island and their purpose.

    FYP. :)

    Flocke is from another century predating aviation. He can't know everything about modern technology. Heck, I'm from the modern era, and I still think tape recorders and cell phones and televisions are like magic. ;)

    I loved Sawyer's quick comment to Kate: "Sayid's a zombie and Claire's nuts!" LOL!! :up: Cuse and Lindelof are making this the "zombie season" they've joked about for years. :up:

    I thought that was Desmond's ultimate goal when he did it. He's trying to get the band back together any way he can.

    She does seem to be the only side-world lawyer. :D

    Yeah, I kinda got that vibe as well. I think it was just that it was obvious he was trying to manipulate her. I thought he might have had Charlie up in an office somewhere.

    Yeah, they even showed a "Jack's-eye view" of him falling, and it never went dark. He was fully conscious the whole time.

    LOST episodes always go by fast, but I actually thought my DVR had skipped forward on its own when I noticed it was near the end. It had glitched at one point and I rewound to point to double check. It felt like it was a good ten minutes shorter than usual. Weird.

    Man, I hate the nerd patrol. Please kill them.

    I think it's going to be Jack and Sawyer.

    Could well be, although having a family law lawyer handle the case of an accused arsonist and murderer would be totally unrealistic.

    Which would completely shatter the carefully constructed naturalism of this show! :D

    I noticed that LAX Sun freaked out when she saw Locke. And not freaked out as in "Hey look it's my old buddy John Locke that I remember from the island". Freaked out as in "Hey look it's that evil guy, MIB." To me that puts a nail in the coffin (although maybe not the final nail) of the "sideways universe" theory. The events in LAX land must be happening *after* the events being shown on the island.

    Maybe Kate goes to another attorney at that same firm, but sneaks out trying to escape. She gets tracked down to the office where the other folks are and tries taking someone hostage.

    then why wouldn't she or Jin speak English?

    Fake Locke was pretty cold when he said that real John Locke was a Sucker, and the only one stupid enough to think they should be on the island. wow, tough talk about the dead guy.

    It really throws the whole beginning of the show off and I am sad. I don't know if I will be able to watch again the same way. We all had a little of Locke's innocence/belief/wonder in the Island.

    I wouldn't give up just yet. With both John AND Jack saying the same thing, it's bound to be the belief that's validated in the end. And that old MIB, he's a liar.

    By the way, totally off topic, but I think that when MiB struck down Jacob, Jacob became more powerful than you could possibly imagine. :)

    I wonder why Widmore backed out on his deal with Sawyer. One thing I won't miss when Lost ends is groups of miscellaneous Redshirts suddenly materializing out of nowhere pointing rifles at people.

    Desmond falls into a well with only a foot of water and survives?

    Oh, and loved Hurley's dumbfounded stare after Sawyer said "who the hell is Anakin?!"
