    It can't hurt them if suddenly it never happened and they were never there.

    So, besides for the sick enjoyment of it, why beat up Sawyer to try and get info out of him instead of just getting Oldham the LSD guy that they used for Sayid?

    Better CGI than the freighter explosion, at any rate. But definitely GCI. Wanna bet the empty camp is where the "flashers" steal a catamaran from, and get shot at (from earlier this season)?

    That cracked me up too. What's even better is that even he got the answer right no one would have believed him by then.

    There better not be a timer on the nuclear weapon. If there is, it better have sweep hands. :) Seriously, blowing up a 40 year old nuc? That's been leaking all this time? Hey, good luck with that. Of course, Sayid tagged along so he can probably BUILD a timer and detonator out of palm fronds and a radio.

    And we had a Charlotte sighting!

    I thought it was worse than the freighter. The water didn't seem to splash enough.

    Yeah, very CGI, it even looked bad on my 32 inch in the bedroom. Still though, it got the point across I guess.

    I still am waiting for the answer to when crazy institutional man gets the numbers from the 1977 hatch cover and then somehow gets off the island and into the institution to tell 2004 (or whatever couple of years previous in his flashbacks) Hurley about the hatch serial numbers so that 2004 Hurley can win the lottery and buy a plane ticket and then crash on the island... and so on and so on....

    we already know some of that. He was working at a listening station somewhere and heard the numbers being broadcast from the island.

    Exactly. He (Lenny) and his partner heard the numbers being broadcast from the Island (from the radio tower before Danielle changed the transmission). They then returned home and encountered bad luck whenever they used the numbers. Lenny ended up in the mental institution and his partner from Australia died after winning some carnival competition (using the sum of the numbers).

    No worries, it wasn't much of a spoiler. What he saw and described could be said about 90% of all the episodes. It was real general, no details.

    I absolutely hated the CGI scene where the sub submerged. It looked like a cut scene from a bargain bin PC game. A toy sub in a bathtub would have looked better. Very disappointing. If they needed to save money they should have just done without that scene altogether.

    Just a guess, but Richard saw them all die because they detonate the bomb.

    Am I the only one thinking that the writers are really going to have to work overtime next season explaining all the little unexplained tidbits so I don't feel cheated at the end of this?

    That would insinuate that the plan didn't work and Richard is in fact immortal, otherwise he would have no recollection of them.

    And just how did Sawyer and Juliet go from being cut, bruised, bloody messes (at least Sawyer, but Juliet also took one on the mouth), to being free from any blemish whatsoever in the sub? Was that several days later? It seemed like it was mere minutes, maybe a few hours, after the "interrogation". Bad editing, or does the island heal that fast?

    Richard believes or thinks he saw them all die.

    Assuming he's telling the truth.

    No spoilers in this post at all. As someone who watches the previews every week, the one thing I've learned is that they are highly manipulative and misleading, with cuts and splices that make no sense. If the preview makers were doing previews for The Empire Strikes Back, they'd have Darth Vader say "I am your father" and then immediately cut to and make it look like he was talking to Yoda.

    A lot to digest here.
    How did Locke know the exact moment he needed to help his past self.
    How is he communing with the Island?

    What are the odds on Jack screwing things up?
    Kate, James, and Juliette aren't going to make it back to the Mainland.

    They were still cut and bruised when on the sub. I know this because I noticed the large welt/bruise on Juliet's mouth when they were being handcuffed to the table on the sub.

    I love a show that, when a character says he is going to kill someone, raises the following questions:

    1. Is he really going to kill him or was he just lying as part of a larger plan?

    2. If he is really going to kill him, is it to stop him or save him?

    3. Does he know who he is planning on killing?

    4. Are his reasons personal, or is he under orders from someone else?

    5. Who is that someone else, and is it someone we already know? (For that matter, is it someone he knows?)

    6. What lies in the shadow of the statue?
