    I just wanted to start the thread by saying something, otherwise there would be multiple threads.

    After last week's meh episode, this one was great. I love episodes that deal with the island mythology, with Ben, with Locke, and Hurley.

    Jack's tsoris, and the Kate/Jack/Sawyer love triange? meh.

    Now we know why Mr. Widmore will never find the island; why he doesn't know where it is. Because they moved it.

    Is Christian dead or alive? Is Claire Dead or alive? Aaron, obviously is not supposed to be raised on the island.

    The immortal guy is really immortal (or at least very old).

    Who is Lt. Daniels working for?

    Just way too much tgo process......

    So, the producers had said something along the line that at some point "flash back" or "flash forward" wouldn't mean anything. What if none of the flashes were what we think of as flashes. What if the whole time it has been travel events in the effort of the Island to save itself?

    I just think they meant that the flash forward would "catch up" with real time so there wouldn't be any more flashforwards.

    Maybe it is what they want us to think..........

    I guess we can sort of say Ben is no longer a "baddie". I think this solidifies that he was just the chosen one, until now. He was the custodian of Island trying to get it to move, to be saved, etc. Now it is John. I suppose the next one would be Aaron.

    You know, what makes this episode, and others, more special now is knowing that the writers know they are taking it to conclusion. I know that has been said before, but it means there will be payoff.

    When Hurley cut the bar in half and gave it to Ben, I almost thought Ben was going to say "I love you man"..... :)

    I need to watch again.........

    I'm just in awe of Michael Emerson's acting. The whole scene at the beginning. "I don't know, I was following him."
    Just awesome. It was all awesome.

    What could have Christian told Claire to make her so cool and relaxed and for the first time in the entire show, she is not saying, "Aaron, where's aaron?"

    I've been thinking the same for a few weeks, now.

    Great episode. Keamey is one mean so-and-so. And I thought Michael said (wrote) not to trust the captain, yet they did anyway.

    When little John was asked to pick things that belonged to him, why did he pick the knife, and why was that the wrong answer? At first I thought the kid just picked it because he wanted it; but now I'm thinking it could be something else.

    There was the same exact scene in another movie, Kundun, about the Dali Lama. When he was a young kid, the monks came to his village and put a bunch of items on the table and asked which one belongs to him (remember each Lama is the previous one reincarnated). He picked the right one though.

    Excellent episode and I can't wait till next week! I want to rewatch this one a couple times to try and get all the info.

    What's up with that orderly guy being the same guy that hired the crew (charlotte, miles, etc) that is there now? He's the same guy that comes to see hurley in one of the flashforwards too.

    I was thinking he might be Jacob. "Next time you see me you'll owe me" & "I'm more than an orderly."

    I've lost track of Claire...where was she supposed to be?

    As in, when we last left her, where was she?

    With the appearance of Matthew Abaddon in Locke's flashback, I'm starting to worry if Locke's being taken down a path that ultimately will end in evil. You know what they say: The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    Also, wow. My brain just melted.

    She was woken up by Christian and followed him in last week's or (was it the week before?) episode.

    She had such a strange grin in that cabin. Almost creepy.

    Thank you, THAT'S where I remembered it from! I knew I had seen it before, but didn't remember where.

    What a great episode. I have NO idea how Christian fits in to all this, but I love this mess. :)
