    This is definitely what happened. You can see it foreshadowed by how Ben is looking (with anger) at the way Karl has his arm around Alex's waist, just before he gives them the map. He's definitely expecting both Karl and Russeau to be killed. I'm sure Alex is perfectly safe. I'm quite confident that the killers were the Others. Now Ben has Alex exactly where he wants her: "safe" with the Others, and no Karl or Russeau. If his dealings with Juliette are any indication, he doesn't seem to much care whether they hate him as long as he can get them to do what he wants.

    Sawyer - short part this week, but great acting in it.. "THAT Michael??"

    "Why are you on this boat?" "I'm here to die".. Made more sense 2nd time through.

    When Michael is speeding the car into the dock/crate-thing, his odometer is 1675.8 (two of the numbers in there - 16 and 8). I've noticed that in all of the flashbacks, the numbers are pretty much everywhere, and in the flash forwards the numbers are never shown (un-interesting numbers are used for license plates, etc). So, if some event happens on the island that fixes the valenzetti equations or something, that probably happens sometime after he hits the dock.
    (He's going like 65 mph, btw)

    Michael's mother says "So until you can explain to me where you were for over two months, and what happened, you gave up your rights"... Why WOULDN'T he tell his mother the story at that point? At that point, he hadn't promised to not say anything, had he?

    "More work to do".. that's at least the 3rd time we've heard that.

    There are a lot of files in Lost..

    Thailand was where the bodies came from.. Isn't that where Jack went?

    Coordinates are enough to find the island.. (sounds obvious, but we actually didn't know that until now)

    Miles: 80% of the people on this boat are lying about something.

    When he chucked the phone, and it floated, I half expected him to panic about it being visible/floating.

    I'd thought that Naomi's helicopter crashed - that they maybe had two choppers.. There's only one there on the boat. Frank argued with her saying he'd been piloting forever and that HE should be able to go first and she argued no.. (so it's not like he piloted and she jumped..).. So what's up with that?

    Hey.. wait a second.. Michael asked Tom "so, you can just *leave*??".. That might make sense for like Bernard to ask, but Michael JUST LEFT.. (he took a boat on the heading Ben told him, and somehow got off). How does Michael's question to Tom make sense, given that it's Michael asking it? That almost seems to hint that it was particularly *difficult* for Michael to leave (despite the fact that this episode seems to want to dismiss the details of Michael and Walt getting back to civilization, at least for now).

    Too tired to finish thread, and I don't want to lose this post, so I'm posting it without removing any smeeks. Note to self: in this thread, made it to post #121, and in my rewatch, to 0:45. :)

    I can't believe how often this comes up! They were NOT subliminal messages. DirecTV, Dish, and cable companies, are allowed to replace some of the network commercials with their own. What happens is, in order to make sure that they don't put advertising over the program material, they make their commercials about 1 second shorter than the actual break. What you see is the end of the "overlayed" commercial, than about 1 second or less of the original commercial, then the program restarts. I asked TNT about this once when my local cable company started putting stupid ads on their channel, and they said it was part of the agreement and perfectly legal.
    I know the timeline probably does not work out very well, but I think Ben was telling the truth, and without the sub, travel to the island and from it is very difficult. His wanting Locke to blow the sub was pretty emphatic, and he had a bit riding on the Others not being able to leave anymore. I strongly feel that the writers will claim that Tom returned to the island by the sub just prior to Locke destroying it. They can always blame the temporal compression effect if necesssary.

    The actor who plays Walt could not be shown because he has grown--a lot! They could not have the scenes of the two of them on the boat leaving the island, being found, and making their way back to NY because Walt just would not look like Walt. They simply could not do it, so they left those scenes out. No real mystery. The show is fiction, but they *DO* have to deal with reality when making it.

    First, this was a prime-time first run network broadcast. No one messes with that. Second, this was not the only ABC show with these commercials. And third, according to this, these were "flash teases" for the relaunch of The Mole, and were very intentional.

    But they watched Michael leave the island without a submarine. Maybe I'm thinking of it in terms of the sub having been the last boat of any type vs. a submarine being the only kind of boat that would work. I'm thinking they would have at least said "don't you have another boat like Michael used?" or something like that.

    Watched this ep for a 2nd time last night. I could clearly hear the firing of a rifle coming out of my rear speakers before the bullets impacted through my front speakers. It was definitely a rifle, sounded exactly like the one used in the movie Sniper with Tom Berenger.

    A blooper? Shouldn't we hear the sound of a gun after the bullets impact?

    i don't think I've seen anyone mention the possibility that the "sniper rifle" could have been the smoke monster. There was definitely some creepy sound design in the woods prior and during the shootings, and it's been a long time since the monster has appeared. I know ep8 wasn't the designed finale for the first half, but kind of hard to believe they would completely leave out such a huge part of the Lost mythos on what should be considered a semi-important episode in the entire rundown.

    I think the monster appeared recently to Julia as Harper.

    Ben was definitely in his secret room at the barracks. But it just occurred to me that because of when they left the barracks (day 82) it had to be the earlier gap when Tom was in NY. Between days 74 and 80. It's a tight turn-around for Michael getting into the accident and out of the hospital, etc., but with the latter one, it gives him a lot more time to get to Fiji considering that Naomi parachutes onto the island on day 87.

    My take on that was that Frank wanted to be on the island first, and that Frank did a flyover on the island with Naomi and she jumped out when he *thought* he was going to crash, however he saved the chopper, (much like the later mission) and headed back to the freighter and the mission continued.

    I'm the first to admit I'm reading items into this that were not presented to us, but those are the gaps my logic filled in.
