    The episode had a few decent things but I just dont know about this season. I mean who expected everything to be about hugo? Not that I dont like the guy but where were the writers on this the first five seasons? Kinda seams liKe they didnt know what to do and just started making shit up. Desmond obviously doesnt die I called him going in the well though. We will just have to wait and see.

  2. Lycanthropist Says:

    That was quite the episode..

    How cool was it to see Hurley tell someone ELSE that they aren’t crazy.

    Called the kiss of memories from a mile a way.

    And holy hell, Ilana got Arzt’ed!

  3. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    Really loving the acceleration towards the ending. Another good episode.

    So, Desmond – will he do something to the EM source of energy located under the well that will change things forever?

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    he isnt done with electromagnetism yet, thats for sure

    I’m really happy Ilana is off the show. Besides Faraday, the worst actor on the show, and really got on my nerves of late. You could see that dynamite explosion happening from a mile away with her, you could see the kiss or something jogging Hurley’s memory, but I never saw Desmond getting tossed down the well happening.

  6. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    Faraday is one of my favorite characters. I’ve always thought he did a good job portraying his part.

    Interesting to hear a different opinion on it.

  7. Mr. Palmer Says:

    The character transformations of Jack and Hurley are really fascinating. Jack now passive, Hurley a leader. Great episode. What is Desmond’s deal? He crushed Locke! That was sick.

  8. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    Could MiB/Locke have killed Desmond if he wanted to or is his power against him limited? Is he aware of what Desmond might do while down the well, or oblivious. Is he trying to put Desmond in the position? So many questions.

  9. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    yet another good episode. Good to see Libby back, even if we know that when the timelines merge Hugo is bound for some tragedy since she is already dead (this can’t end well for them, right?). Great cathartic moment when Michael asks Hugo to tell Libby he’s sorry.

    I like the role that Alt Desmond is playing in putting all of the pieces together. As soon as I saw Locke crossing the street I thought “holy crap. Desmond is going to run him down!” and then he did it. fuck yeah, Des. Worked well juxtaposed against the fact that Flocke had just pushed his other self down the well. I’m pretty sure he didn’t really kill Des just like Alt Timeline Locke isn’t dead yet either.

    I too am glad Ilana is gone. There was something about her character that never worked for me. It was all too clean with her being the protector and she never really had much to contribute. Definitely saw the explosion coming with her.

    So now I’m wondering what is going to happen with the Richard Group. What a weird combination of characters. Ben, Richard, and Miles? Should be interesting to see when they come back into the picture.

    Lots to chew on with this one and i haven’t even mentioned all of the Hurley as leader stuff!

  10. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    how many actual episodes/hours remain?

  11. Lycanthropist Says:

    5 episodes 6 hours

  12. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    and who’s the boy in the jungle?!?

    @auntie em
    it looks like there are four episodes, a recap, and then the two part finale judging from the lostpedia season 6 page (if that can be assumed to be correct)

  13. Lycanthropist Says:

    I think it was a different boy than the one we have already seen

    The first boy we saw had blonde hair…

    This boy had dark hair

  14. wilson8or Says:

    the Whispers NOT being man in Black threw me for a loop. I suppose it still could be him, since Michael basically told him exactly what the Man in Black wants: NOT to blow up the plane. And for the record, I’m about done with the parting shots of Locke smiling..

  15. wilson8or Says:

    That “new boy” was older, too

  16. Lycanthropist Says:

    yeh if LOST ends one more episode with a creepy smile on Locke’s face I am gonna be pissed..

    This is like the third one this season alone!

  18. wilson8or Says:

    I also think it’s kind of cool how they’re making Desmond the alt. universe’s Jacob; in that he’s visiting each of them and helping them realize they don’t belong there. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. We never saw if “Hume” was a candidate

  19. Carini's Dad Says:

    I think that boy in the jungle was a total red herring. Didn’t Smokey Locke say, “Just ignore him.” I think that’s just the writers having some fun.

  20. Lycanthropist Says:

    I think it was Smokey himself as a child.

    And the other boy was Jacob

    And we will find out about these boys in the inevitable Jacob-centric episode coming up

  21. cwc Says:

    Another great episode! Answered one big question about the whispers. But it still left a bit of confusion. Michaels said he is stuck there because of what he did. Didn’t his coming back to the island and blowing up the freighter redeem him? He couldn’t die until the island was done with him either. Then Christian showed up and said he could now blow himself up. But now he is still stuck? And these people that are stuck isn’t that some form of purgatory? The producers have said time and time again the island is not purgatory.

  22. posternutbag Says:

    Really enjoyed the Willy Wonka preview for next week.

  23. Lycanthropist Says:

    Its safe to say that ghosts being stuck is a common enough thread in any location to not have to label the island purgatory persay.

    Maybe the islands unique properties make ghosts more often..

    But I don’t think the island is a purgatory for the living for sure.

    I too wonder if there is any redemption ever for Michael.

    I also wonder about the motivations that drove Michael to his supposed “redeeming” act of blowing up the freighter.

    I think this just may be one of those plot holes that are too far removed from the main story to ever be fully explained. Michael was probably one of the few characters that we know that has died that we wouldn’t be TOO pissed about being damned to eternal whispering

  24. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    oh, and I love that they included a reference to “The Human Fund” as one of the philanthropic endeavors of Hurley.

  25. cwc Says:

    I agree it is not purgatory for the living. I guess this is how they got away with saying that all these years.
