"...one hair on his curly head..."? What does THAT mean?
+1 I got the feeling that something Ben knew allowed him to brashly taunt the Merc, "knowing" that his daughter was safe. And then *bang!* and that realization that someone had just double-crossed him tossed him over the edge.
Just an expression of love...
(of course, spell spoiler correctly)
Ha....I'd sure like to see a "curly head"...leave it to Sawyer to screw up a cliche...
The timeline confuses me too. Didn't the woman at the hotel tell Ben it was 1995? Maybe I heard it wrong?
Sayid has been looking for Nat since the 90s post Gulf War. 8 years fits.
It's 2005 not 1995.
Of course, as we saw in the Despond episode, one does not need to phsycally time travel, one can just time travel by switching bodies.
Again, I wonder if present Ben has the ability to switch body time travel like Desmond (but unlike Desmond can control it). The only reason I asked is because he asked the desk clerk the date, and the year.
Maybe he was asking the year solely for exposition purposes, so that the viewer would know. But why else?
I hope I'm wrong. While I generally like time travel fiction, I do not like it in Lost at all.
I think that LOST does the spacetme discontinuity thingy especially well.
Widmore can't even use ship's coordinates to get back to the Island because it is not in a constant/normal spacetime coordinate. It shifts.
My hubby said the exact same thing. He thought it was like God vs The Devil. Then I made a statement about why would god be sleeping with a bottle of scotch by his bed??? And he goes...who said he was the good one???
I don't know who the good guys are...that's what makes it so confusing!!! I'm so confused!!!
I meant 2005, but I didn't realize he was looking for her since the 90s.
BTW - according to Lostpedia, the flashforwards aren't going from latest to earliest. The timeline shows "Ji Yeon" as the earliest of them and this ep as the second.
Isn't is great?
That's a good point. I don't think they told us a date in Ji Yeon, but since she was pregnant, we can sort of figure it out.
Quote from Hurley.
"Australia is the key to the whole game"
I'm betting this means more to the show than to Risk.
OK, so what have we seen in Australia?
Claire & the psychic
Rose & Bernard & the faith healer (right?)
I have a poor memory for details, though ...
I think this was just meant to be humorous. If you read online board game forums, there are a lot of arguments among Risk players over whether Australia is the key to game or not.
In Risk, if you had Australia, yo almost always one as it was there was only one way to get in and try and defeat the enemy. I think there will be a parallel here with Lost "Game".
And I could see Widmore as the Captain of the Black Rock.
And I also thought Ben was very much "unstuck in time".
And I think those that time travel get sick. I think Jack was getting sick becuase he travelled, but didn't know it.
The producers have stated that Ayer's Rock has importance.
I was pretty sure what it looked like and called it to my wife during the episode, but since he preview "confirmed" it, I will spoiler my idea:
It appears that he has an appendicitis
Over all, another excellent episode.
According to Carlton Cuse
The flashforwards are going backwards chronologically. He says that eventually they'll catch up to the island "present" time until the word "flash" won't be used anymore.
