    I must comment on the voice-over for the finale event. (There were absolutely no spoilers in the preview, BTW). My wife used a term she has never used for anything in the six seasons of "Lost" -- not even "Expose."

    "Lame"

    I have to agree. Sounded like a promo for Disney World.

    Well duh. That's obvious, right?

    :p

    Kidding, but I do think that's Widmore's plan.

    And where did they get wine from anyway? I want those answers!!! :p

    Was it some old stuff that turned to vinegar? Was it a fine 1970s Dharma private label wine? Washed up on shore wine?

    ...and they didn't have much more time to draw it out.

    I liked how they had Jack stitching Kate up in a scene that was eerily reminiscent of the pilot episode. Only in reverse. I almost expected her to bring up the story Jack told while she was stitching him.

    Since Jacob seemed fond of noting the candidate's similarity to himself, I thought it was curious that the candidate who took his place just happens to be the only one with a (half-)sibling that's perhaps a bit, er, annoyed with him on the island.

    It's not the near-death experience itself, it's that coupled with a realization about the other timeline. Locke had that realization as a result of what Ben said that Desmond said. He needs to "let go."

    As for the private plane crash, that is completely irrelevant, since it happened prior to Flight 815 landing from Sydney.
    If Smokey could kill Richard, he'd have been dead a long time ago. Also, if he were really dead, they wouldn't have left his death so ambiguous (getting flung in the air by Smokey, never seeing a body). I'm fairly certain Richard is still alive.
    Sun wasn't pregnant when she came to the Island. When they found the medical hatch, they determined that she became pregnant after the plane crash.
    Earlier this season in the sideways, Widmore tasked Desmond to recruit Charlie to play at a concert, because his wife (or was it Daniel?) had this idea about fusing classical music with rock. I'm guessing that this concert where they wanted Charlie to play, is the same concert that Miles' dad's museum is putting on, is the same concert Daniel is going to play at, is the same concert Jack's son is going to play at. All the Losties will wind up there somehow or other.
    But because Jacob never got a choice in becoming the protector of the Island, Jacob wanted them to have a choice, not have the Island choose them.
    Why wouldn't you still be able to watch the show the night before? Who cares if you don't get much sleep. You'll be spending most of the day in bed after the surgery anyway, right?
    Totally agree. The voice they used for that was totally out of place and made me not even pay attention to what was being said.

    I thought that concert was supposed to be that same day at Eloise's birthday party, when Desmond met Penny and Daniel in the sideways.

    A few quick and dirty bullet points:
    - Richard is definitely not dead. He can't die, remember AND you don't kill off a major character that quickly.
    - I like Jack as the protector of the island. I don't foresee any twist and I don't know why people think there is. Jack has been the leader from Day One and it is fitting it is him at the end. That said, I do predict that Jack's tenure will end because, well, it's the end. "It only ends once. Everything else is progress."
    - I agree with gchance that snap judgments are made far too quickly, especially with episodes. Was last week's episode weak in some places? Yes, but this week's validated it very well, which goes to show they DO know what they're doing. :) Jacob admitting he made a mistake wouldn't have had the same resonance if we hadn't seen it last week.
    - Is it Sunday already?

    Yeah, you're probably right. I don't remember the specifics. But wasn't that one some kind of benefit concert for the museum (it was being held on the grounds of the museum, right?) So it would seem odd for the museum to be putting on another concert so soon after the first. I don't really understand the chronology of the sideways. Has Kate been sitting in that jail cell for several days? Has Sayid? Why would they move someone to "county" after several days in a precinct lockup?

    The sideways timeline is all jacked up, considering how much has happened to Locke in the same time as what happened to Jin & Sun, such that they are being wheeled into the hospital at the same time.

    I think you're a bit delusional about the popularity of that show. Even at this forum, that skews heavily toward sci-fi, I'd guess that less than 20% of the active participants in the Lost threads have seen B5.

    Exactly. Supposedly, Keamy came to visit Jin the morning after the plane landed, and the shootout at the restaurant happened later that day. So Sun is being wheeled into the hospital the day after the plane landed. Meanwhile, Locke is also being wheeled into the hospital at the same time, but since the plane landed, he's lost his job, gotten a new job through Rose at Hurley's temp agency, begun substitute teaching at Ben's school, and encouraged Ben to engineer a coup against the principal.

    Sayid was apparently picked up by the police at the restaurant shootout the same day that Sun was shot and taken to the hospital. And he's sitting in the pokey with Kate, who, IIRC, said that it had been a week between when she met Sawyer at the airport, and when he then arrested her for running into his car.

    Was it just me or did it really happen that every single time the name "Locke" was spoken it was preceded by the word "if"?
    If so it was a great fan shoutout!

    Well, I, for one, don not consider the selfless act of giving your life for someone (in this case, to keep his wife from dying alone) the same as suicide. It just isn't.

    Also, do we know for a fact that he is dead? Queue Mikhail, riding a giant turtle, holding a tank of oxygen.

    But was Dogen a candidate? Dogen is not a Japanese first name, is it? So I assume it is a surname, which means he is *not* a candidate. If Dogen is his first name then he could be.
