    I'm not convinced that Desmond actually saw Charlie flip the switch or die by drowning. I think he might have seen something that simply made him want to convince Charlie to go down to the station - i.e, he just manipulated Charlie into going.

    For instance, Desmond might have seen *himself* go down there and face the killer Austin Powers chicks, and decided he'd rather Charlie face them. That might have been why he decided to let Charlie off the hook by going himself - he realized it was his own destiny and not Charlie's. (Which means that Desmond may end up down there to save Charlie after he wakes up - thus fulfilling the very vision that he already saw.)

    Alex: When did you get back?"

    Ben: "Just now."

    Alex: "Where's Locke?"

    Ben removes gun from pants, tosses it in the air, catches it, leans toward Alex with an "I'm REALLY pissed off" look says: "Here's your gun back."

    Alex: Distressed look on her face takes the gun with her bloody hand.

    This was a great scene :)

    I was hoping charlie would die, a helicopter would land and take claire and the baby away, but not have enough space for the other losties, or something.

    /I haven't liked charlie since day 1.

    What was Alex doing to that rabbit? That was pretty disturbing...

    Looks like Ben's lost it...

    Wouldn't the correct name be "Alice"?

    It would be nice to have closure with the Annie character as well though. Methinks that'll have to wait till next season.

    When did "Isaac" tell Ben that they should go to the survivor's beach and kidnap the Women and kill the men?

    I thought the same thing about The Abyss. From what the Laserdisc special features said, they never struck the sets so I suppose it would be possible to have used that thing again - assuming it did not rust completely away in the unfinished power plant they built it in.


    Anyway. Great episode. I can see Desmonds vision coming true. Obviously there is no water in the station now, but maybe Chralie is able to overpower them somehow and flip whatever switch Desmond was talking about. As a side effect (or maybe as a result of him getting free) , the station fills with water too quickly for him to get out or something. The note was pretty touching.

    I like Jack finally coming to terms with leading the group and the rest seem to want it as well, especially with the new glasnost policy in effect. Maybe they will actually start getting things done.

    Who was the woman that Charlie saved from being mugged? Was that Sayid's old girlfriend?

    They never even considered using the dynamite to blow up the antenna that was broadcasting the jamming signal. :rolleyes:

    The jamming signal is coming from the Looking Glass. The tower broadcasts Rousseau's distress signal, which can simply be shut down.

    Charlie just became the luckiest man alive. I mean he's down there in the bunker with two lonely good looking women...

    I have to agree...they have succeeded in creating an emotional investment in a character that not everyone likes. You could just feel his anxiety and hopelessness in knowing that he may be nearing the end of his life but is still willing to try his hardest to live on (or long enough) to save everyone else...

    I thought that cable was just a tether line.

    The last time Desmond got knocked out, he returned to the island from the "alternate reality." I wonder if Charlie's use of the oar on Desmond will have the opposite effect.

    No, we were right with you. I thought it was a pretty genuine reaction, though.

    if the cable is just a tether line, how do you scramble broadcast signals from underwater? not a very practical place for a job like that.

    On the other hand, if you believed that the island itself was crawling with Hostiles (which Dharma certainly seemed to), it would make sense to have a station off the island that was autonomous.)
