    To add to this, this part was a summary of what happened in the past (presented to viewers), just like how most (All?) episodes start with "Previously on LOST"; bits of past shows are replayed to remind folks parts of the show that happened previously that is now relevant to the story going forward.

    so... imho the question is - is Michael's gun his own gun when he does attempt to fire it...
    pawnshop gun:

    Tom's gun looks a lot like the final picture of the gun when Michael's in his Apartment again.

    I wish there was a better pic out there of the gun when the pawn shop guy is handing it to him. But I thought it was black. (no longer have the recording to go back to)

    Yes, interesting. Like the quote: "Every living person on this island will die.".

    It wasn't darts, as there were visible wounds. It seemed more like a silenced gun.

    But with Tom seemingly getting off the island AFTER the sub was blown up, I'm thinking Ben doesn't need to pretend to be an O6 since he can probably come and go as he pleases.


    Yeah, it really wasn't a "next on LOST" clip. It was a, "Now that we've learned all this..." kind of thing and quickly flashing summaries of what all has happened so far.

    I kinda got that feeling too. We know Ben didn't want her with Karl and he probably didn't want to share her with Russeau. And no one ever shot at her.

    I'd like to rewatch this episode and figure out if everything between when we first and last saw Tom in NY could have happened within 5 days.

    It would be interesting if we ever actually did see Tom in Tallahassee, which has to have been in the first gap, but I can't imagine why they'd revisit that story line in the first place.

    But I think this is the first time we've had any clue in the flash-forwards about when the fake 815 wreckage is discovered.

    I agree with Mike that they were definitely using a serious sniper weapon (technical term i believe ;) ), but not the same as the guns the freighter guys were using..which were mp5s as my husband pointed out to me. But i'm sure widmore has access to a vast array of weapons. Hard to pinpoint who the shooters are based on the weapon alone.

    I took it be a silenced sniper rifle.

    That's what I thought as well. That doesn't mean it wasn't a set up for two of the three of them. If it is true that all pregnant women on the island die then Alex would be a miracle child. We've been told nothing of Russeau's past but I thought she'd been there for all of Alex's life. Ben is her father, after all and Russeau crashed/landed/shipwrecked on the island before that. If all of that is true, Alex is definitely worth more alive than dead. If there is any legitimate research still going on, that is. Why did Russeau survive? How?

    What happened to the Hanso Foundation?

    I think you're misremembering. Danielle crashed on the island when she was about seven months pregnant. She then gave birth to Alex and the Others stole the baby. Alex was raised by Ben and believed that Ben was her father, but he has no biological ties to her. Alex is no more a miracle child than Aaron.

    He's definitely misremembering, but as far as her value as a hostage, all that really matters is that Ben cares about her as his daughter. Well, that's all assuming of course that the people shooting are really freighter people and not the Others themselves, and that Ben's intentions were really for them to get to safety.

    I thought the "Not Yet" gag on the bomb was cheesy and I don't know how I feel about "The Island" not letting Michael die. So the Island is a conscious entity now? And all powerful, too? How that mechanism works out will be interesting to see, that could be a big weakness in the overall story - for me, anyway.

    I also thought that the sniper(s) may have been Others rather than Freighties. But then again, maybe that was the errand Lapidus was running, delivering the sniper squad to the Island; it was the guy who was shooting clay pigeons off the side of the boat who told Frank not to be late at the beginning of last weeks episode.

    I want to be among the first to declare: I think Alex is pregnant (just a WAG).

    If Rousseau is really dead/dying, I hope the next episode is her flashback as she passes away; never addressing her back-story would be a big cop-out.

    I liked that Libby was carrying blankets in the hospital, just like she was when Michael shot her.

    Thought of another milestone related to the timeline - Naomi parachutes to the island on day 87. That could complicate things. Was Tom really still in NY when he called Michael?

    Locke's always referred to the Island as an entity. It could be argued that it's a character just like any other, as much as the Enterprise is a character in the original Star Trek.

    That said, I don't see the Island as an entity, that's a misinterpretation on the part of Locke & Tom (possibly all the Others if they feel the same way). I just think it's the universe correcting itself.

    Yeah, that is a potentially big issue for me too.

    I'm glad the writers strike ended. If not, that would be one terrible season finale. (and yes, I know no one planned it that way) I'm glad they get to finish it right with the next set of 5

    It appeared that he was, but I don't remember if there was anything definitive. Of course, that was before they left Fiji, which was at least a couple of days before the boat got in position to send Naomi. I'm thinking that none of the possible time scenarios really make sense here.

    Unless we connect it with the experiment on the bunny shown in the "Orchid" orientation video. ;)

    Maybe by "some of us can" he means "some of us can teleport <or something like that> away from the island" :eek:

    The next episode would have been the season finale.
