  2. Mr.Miner Says:

    gonna rewatch tonight…will post more thoughts

  3. Mr. Completely Says:

    re: names – of course Eloise Hawking

    Hawking mostly is famous for work on black holes and there was a lot of speculation that the hatch energy might be black hole related, but of course it turns out it’s EM…

    “hawking radiation” is how black holes dissipate over time due to quantum effects (if they are not being fed)

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    we’re going to rewatch too…might do an hour tonight and one this weekend…starting “Torchwood” with a friend on Friday, I’d rather not take anything else on right now but we’ve been having TV night with this guy for like 10 years, so….

    i am just gonna chime in late, i didn’t see this thread until today,

    One thing that stuck out to me as maybe important that kinda got lost in the mix.

    The big wooden symbol in the guitar case. the note stole your attention, but that symbol is the same as the necklace Horace had (as last i saw). that was from Amy (and Paul her hubby then). we have seen that necklace at least twice.

    Why that sticks out as important to me, is i noticed at some point last season, that that moment when Sawyer saved Amy, was the first time that they caused a paradox. They had interacted with folks before, early 50’s, but that was when they actually prevented a death, a death by the way that would have involved Ethan never being born. they directly changed what was happening in the past. They obv. did changed a lot more after that, but that seems relevent.

    But most obvious is that is a symbol that Horace respects, I don’t think we have seen the Others use it.. Horace was Dharma as were Paul and Amy but that symbol was very familiar with those folks at the temple.

    Another thing. When Juliet says “It worked”, i have always felt Juliet knew a lot more about things on the island than she let on. I think she has always known how things would work out ultimately. Not all the details, but she knew. As soon as she heard that jack had a bomb she turned around.

    I really like what Lycan notticed about the time synchs with Charlie, Claire, Lock Boone. Def right on about that Like Mrs Hawking told us long ago Destiny and Fate will always adjust.

    Great idea as always Miner. Keep up the good ideas..

    are we sure that Eloise was on the island in 1977?

  7. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Anyone recognize the woman at the temple who says she was on Oceanic 815 with Hurley, sayid and the rest that get captured?

    On 1st watch never realized that Kate swiped Jack’s pen from his jacket when the bumped coming out of airplane bathroom.

  8. Snigglebeach Says:

    @at pig

    Jack and Sayid were with eloise not 2-3 hours before they detonated the bomb. she had to be there.

  9. ThePigSong Says:

    oh okay, thanks Sniggle.

  10. ThePigSong Says:

    ah yes, I remember now. For some reason I was thinking that was during a different decade.

  11. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr C

    yep that is the stewardess from 815, Cindy

    We also saw her pay Jack a visit while Ben and co. had him caged up.

  12. Lycanthropist Says:


    yes me and wife have both also thought that Juliet knew way more than she let on.

    this is very prevelant in the Season 5 finale when they have the meet up with Bernard and Rose. She has her arms around the very place where the chains will pull her down into the dig site.

  13. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Lycan- were you responding to my question with the stewardess? I think you meant me. just making sure. I’ll have to check for her again. I missed it second time around.

    She’s the one that gives Jack the vodka, or from the original flight?

  14. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr. P

    yeah, my bad

    yeah she is the one that hooks it up for jack

    she was disappeared with the others right before Ana Lucia and the rest of the Tailies had their unfortuned meet up with Shannon.

    the next time we saw her was when Jack was in the cage

    and now here she is fully immersed with the Others, and not the book club muffin making Others, the real deal Others.

    I wonder what is so special about her and those children

  15. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Cool, thanks Lycan- you certainly have your Lost shit down, my friend. I re-watched last night, and missed her again.

    The Charlie scene has me perplexed. “I was supposed to die , man”. with the guitar case on his way off the plane. He’s knows somwthing i think.

  16. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr. P

    I think we will find that people coming close or crossing over the line of death may get glimpses of both realities

    See Juliet and her odd remarks to Sawyer as she passes

    I am sure Sayid will have some intriguing remarks to make next episode too

  17. Lycanthropist Says:

    i feel like a huge dork now though..

    I could comment on LOST all day…

  18. Mr. Palmer Says:

    We are all dorks, in a twisted, demented way. Or we wouldn’t be commenting on any of theis stuff Phish or Lost.

  19. Lycanthropist Says:

    ha yeh Mr. P

    But I am responsible for about half the comments on this thread 😉

  20. jay Says:

    nice catch with the pen swipe 🙂

  21. jay Says:

    I also think Juliet knows way more than she lets on.

  22. Mr. Completely Says:

    rewatched hour 1 last night…not much in the way of new insight but confirmed for me a lot of the things we’re talking about…gonna do hour 2 this weekend

  23. Mr.Miner Says:

    Lycan…bring it man, that’s what this is for…if nothing else to get others to read your ideas…the kids Zack and Emma were the 2 kids from the plane that the others took early on….the whole not being able to give birth on the island (I think) influenced them to take babies/kids (Rosseau, Jack, Emma…) to continue their people…?

  24. Lycanthropist Says:


    the need for children was a way for them to keep their society going.

    Ben got way off track with his obsession for healing and making it possible for pregnant women to give birth on the island.

    I cant imagine the amount of guilt and responsibility that he must have felt when women started dying in the same fashion as his mom.

    I think this is what makes Aaron so important. I don’t believe we are done with him or the other children yet.

  25. Mr.Miner Says:

    aaron is def stilla a factor…Claire is still pregnant in reality X…and notice Kate gets in the cab with her….I bet she still helps give birth somehow…
