    Also, Locke would have been taking an awfully big chance with his own life, or with the life of anyone whom he'd send to check on Miles later. Then, again, he's been shown to be a tad homicidal, and Sawyer's latest nickname for him (Kurtz) may be quite appropriate.

    But, yeah, +1 for me.

    Later on in the episode Locke has blood on his hands and he says he just killed a chicken. That explains the "last two eggs", perhaps. Which would mean he had already made up his mind to kill the chicken when he brought Ben his breakfast. Either that, or he killed the chicken and kept the blood for later (weird, but Kurtz-like).

    Of course, "last two eggs" may have just meant the last two in the fridge, until he finds the hen house and gets more.

    Killing the chicken that lays the eggs...I see some symbolism here. He killed the chicken, but he's not killing Ben or Miles.

    I guess he already got all of the information he needed out of the chicken.

    Two things cracked us up.
    First was Locke telling Ben to read the book again, he might pick up something he missed.
    Thanks, writers, who know many of us watch the show twice.

    Second was, when Sawyer and Kate were talking in bed in the morning, Sawyer's hair kept flipping between bedhead and flat.

    Regarding the $3.2 million--the have mentioned a few times the importance of flying the helicopter on a bearing of 325 degrees. Are there other references to 32 or 32xxx anywhere else?

    Forgive me, because I just watched this ep this morning, and I've only read the first 50 posts. But when Locke opened the door where Ben was being held and when Kate shot the lock off, it was apparent the door hinged on the left. However, when Kate slammed the door shut after Miles talked to Ben, it hinged on the right.

    What lawyer would want to call a 2 year old child to a witness stand? Kates lawyer said "he" is your olny hope, and kate said "I will not use my son"

    Could she have more than one son? One that will come into play later?

    Not to the stand. Probably just to sit in the courtroom and cry over how he misses mommy so the jurors will feel sorry for her.

    I don't recall if they revealed the sex of the person whose funeral it was. Possible to be Claire?

    I think it's highly unlikely to be Claire. First, the clues we have so far (the newspaper article of which we could only read bits) imply it is a man. Second, based on Jack's condition I think the funeral is clearly the farthest in the future scene we've seen... and if Claire was alive all that time then why was Kate taking care of Aaron as her own son?

    Well at least it's pretty clear why Kate doesn't want to go back now. She doesn't want to lose Arron to Claire.

    For whatever reason, Ben has refused to share any information with the Losties, even on threat of death. I think the look was more because he had information that Ben is trying desperately to keep secret. Not necessarily that they are on the same side.

    Even though it's obviously Claire's Aaron, Kate could have changed his name. She could have called him anything once she took him off the Island, no?

    It's only the writers letting us know who it is that she kept the name.

    I don't understand why Kate would ever want to actual take Claire's child from her unless it was absolutely necessary (I mean, it wasn't as though she handled the thought of having a child so well from the get-go). After watching the episode, I personally thought that something must have happened to Claire on the way off the island (not necessarily death, but just anything that would stop her from being able to care for a child) and, seeing as she and Kate have occasionally been buddies and everything, gave her responsability for him.

    I find it HIGHLY unlike he's possessed just because that would be an almost rediculous twist in the show. We've had some ghosts, yes, and some weird monsters and everything, and perhaps a spirit in the form of Jacob or something, but I think the creators of the show have begun to realize that the more magic they throw in now, the more dissatisfied the majority of the audience becomes and down go the ratings.

    More likely than not, Jack just doesn't want to see him because he has some sort of guilt over losing Claire. Jack's like that pretty often after all-- he can't save someone and he gets pretty emotionally torn up. I could especially see this being true in Claire's case (everyone loves her, after all, Hurley said so earlier) and even more so if he found out they were related. Yikes, what a big ball of emotional crazies we would have there.

    ---
    EDIT:
    After thinking about it more and reading some of the posts here, I totally see why Kate wouldn't have wanted back on that island. If Claire (or fate or whatever) left Aaron in her charge, the last thing she'd want to do as a sane person would be to take him back there and she obviously couldn't just leave him behind if they headed back for good. Or if Jack's plan revolves around them only going back for awhile, Kate probably would still refuse at the thought of potentially abandoning Aaron if she were to die.

    Or something. Just throwing it out there. : )

    Yeah, but Courtroom Kate isn't wearing the same clothes that she had on for the last three months. :eek:

    You're assuming that 1) Kate and Sawyer had sex during a time that she was user-friendly for conception! ;) or 2) she doesn't have infertility problems of her own.

    Might be. I had started playing around with this but got side-tracked. [using just his name - no title] Thought I had something developing with "hear no truth", but that is NOT correct - 5 unmanageable letters remain. :(

    Oddly, he references both!? Jack does say in his first repsonse, "crashed on an island in the South Pacific"... then, in reponse to a different question he says "only 8 of us survived the crash - we landed in the water...". He is contradicting himself or was his first answer just a casual choice of words?

    ...and it would not be illogical for them to say "We crashed on an island"...

    I still don't buy that it's "obvious"....this could still even be Jack and Kate's baby. Both my wife and I have brown hair. Our now 24-year-old son has brown hair...but up until he was around five or six, his hair was blondish.
