    If a doctor like Jack was that nosey in my personal business I would have called the cops and told him to back the F off.

    Hahahaha, yeah probably :)

    I haven't seen them mention that they are extending the finale. I will have to look for confirmation on that :)

    Wow what a crazy episode....when they were killing of Sun and Jin my wife keep saying "NO!! NO!!" LOL!

    What a crazy/fun ride it's been...I too have no idea where this is all leading but I'm soaking in every last drop of fun until the very end.

    I still don't understand why Widmore won't just take five minutes and honestly explain the situation to the losties. If his intentions are honorable (who knows) then there should be no problem being honest. But no, he'd rather lock them up and keep them in the dark.

    I still have no idea where this is going but I'm fairly certain that Desmond is the key.

    The craziest part of this episode to me was that Jack was able to push Fake Locke into the water.

    That says to me that the smoke powers may be useless against the "candidates". Could lead to some pretty cool Flocke/Jack/Sawyer fights.

    I don't know; pallet drop?:p

    But after Illana blew up, Richard asked Ben if the were any grenades or explosives at the barracks, and Ben said he thought there were. Makes me wonder why they didn't go for those first, instead of the crusty-old dynamite; but whatever.

    Maybe they didn't plant the C4 - because if they did, why hadn't they set it off? I just made the connection since that what they said they were going to do. But I bet that if Ben, Miles and Richard didn't set the explosives, they will be showing up there soon. I wonder what their purpose is...?

    Speaking of seemingly pointless, I'm feeling disappointed this morning about Jin, Sun and Lapidus. They strung out the Jin/Sun thin for this long just to kill them off like that? And I guess Lapidus was only there to make it look as if they were going to use the plane.

    On the positive side I got goosebumps when Jack told John " I wish you had believed me."

    I think you mean to add 30 minutes of commercials.
    Man the commercial breaks on LOST are almost as long as the show.

    Are we not on a DVR forum? Why is everyone so afraid of more commercial breaks. I say let your show build a lead time and then start watching. If they say they are adding extra material, I don't car if it is just one extra minute or if it is 20, any extra material is fine by me.

    Commericals? Guys, I thought was all have Tivos/DVRs?

    I delay things 20 minutes and start watching. But, the finale, I may just watch "live"

    Or what Shaunnick said :)

    Anyone planning on having a Lost finale party?

    "just get smokey in the water, i'll take care of the rest" - That was some plan.

    Wasn't the bomb beeping with every tick when they removed it from the backpack?

    Why didn't they send smokey in first when they were attacking the sub?

    Why did sayid suddenly stop being a zombie when the bomb was found ?

    "there's no way i'm going back in these cages."
    "What if we kill Kate? "
    "ok"

    Actually, there's no way anyone made it out that hole while water was rushing in. They would have had to wait until the sub hit bottom and was completely filled with water before it would have been possible to exit that way.

    I think he stopped being a zombie last episode when he saved Desmond. Although we didn't see exactly what happened, it was strongly projected that Sayid was redeemed then.

    HAHAHAH on that last part.. "ok..."

    As for the rest, I see where you're coming from. I'm ok with it because at this point, whatever, but the plans on both sides relied on a hell of a lot of faith. How did Sawyer know Locke wouldn't just storm the sub (which would have made more sense), and how did Locke know that Sawyer would just happen to ask him to stay in the back? And what was his plan if Jack hadn't thrown him in the water, since he was steps away from getting on the sub.

    I was also wondering what Jack was thinking because he's betraying the smoke monster, yet plans on staying on the island with it. Not to bright, but then I remembered that he can't kill them so it's all good.

    I thought based on Richard's demonstration that the candidates can't die at all, not just if it was at Locke's hands or not. But I guess they can kill each other. Anyone remember which of the original castaways were on the wall but crossed out? I'm still wondering why Kate is crossed out if she's not dead. Was she crossed out on the cave wall but not the lighthouse wheel?

    My head hurts.

    This is my dilemma right now. My friend is having people over to watch it but I don't think I want to go--this particular group doesn't know how to be quiet and unfortunately one of my biggest pet peeves is people talking non stop when I'm trying to watch something. And seeing as how I've waited six years to see this episode, I really just want to watch it on my nice flat screen/surround sound set up without worrying about people having a party around me.

    Is that lame? Anyone else on the same page?

    It seemed to me that since Jack believed that Flocke couldnt kill them (the candidates) and he already proved that he couldnt kill himself, he should have been the person mucking around with the bomb. Hell, he could have just started dismantling the thing right there.

    No way I'd want to go to one!...it's pretty much a given that if you have a bunch of folks sitting watching a show like this they will be chatting things up too much to enjoy it....I want to see it at home in peace and quiet then happily discuss it the next day.

    Again, Jack called it last night. If they had left it alone, the bomb would not have gone off. Like Jack said though, they can kill each other. The minute Sawyer tampered with the bomb he jeopardized everyone on the sub but himself. He can't kill himself because he is a candidate. Somehow fate would conspire to save Sawyer. And it did. Going forward the survivors will have to be weary not of the smoke monster (not directly, anyway) but of anyone else he might weasel into doing his dirty work, including the other candidates.

    This.

    I think Jack was being Doctorman and was helping Kate. Sawyer grabbed the bomb after Sayid looked at it and told him what needed to be done. Then he wouldn't give it up/or stop when Jack told him to.

    All of them on the beach crying for Sun and Jin was more powerful to me than the actual death scene of them. I felt like the end really is, finally, nearing. That's why I cried.

    It was annoying to me that Jack used his portable air to swim out with Sawyer, but Sawyer was passed out and didn't have an air device. I'm pretty sure people who are passed out still breathe. So Sawyer would have drowned.

    But there's been worse. I'll just chalk that one up to Sawyer not being able to kill himself. If they went through the trouble of even having portable air, they should have had enough for everybody who needed one to get out ;)
