Cindy and the Kids
« on: February 21, 2007, 11:31:19 PM »
My guess is Cindy is NOT an Other.

What did Carl mean about the kids having a better life?

Agreed, Cindy seems just to have bought into the Others' way of life.  Not surprising, since she got to see that the Kids are OK.  

But Karl, he's been brainwashed, so he could mean anything.

Cindy also went from a dingy cave where ppl were dying to a good society where they took care of her...

You got to remember that when they took claire, she was buying into it too

For one what has gone on with the Beach and Hatch with people dying, fighting, lighting things on fire and what not is not exactly conducive with child   appropriate exaple.

Also they were flying ALONE to Cali from Sydney... Umm something tells me their real life back home was not exactly stable or normal.

Lets see, get killed/tortured or get a free house, with a back yard, and no taxes in a nice stable nuclear community with none of the evils that society has manifested in the real world.  If I was her I would have chosen door #2 AS WELL.

It is getting frustrating that we are just not told anything!! Just spit it out Cindy, now we won't see her again for 2 seasons.

"They're not ... it's complicated" is all we really needed.  It's clear what Cindy would need to explain to Jack in that situation.  the Others aren't what he thinks.  They're not evil or diabolical; they're misunderstood and complicated.  Exactly how they're complicated can be explained by anyone, but we're already getting a good sense.  Cindy can go away and never come back for all I care.

No one on this show ever asks the right questions at the right time. Instead we get comments like Jack's "I think I want to go back to my cage now" Why can't anyone sit down with these people and ask the million questions that could answer the who, what, when, where, why of these weird people on this island. One question I now have, is there a landscaper to ahndle all the grass cutting in those backyards?

Yes!  The worst, in my opinion, was when Jack had Friendly in the operating room alone with Ben bleeding out.  Maybe, just maybe, it's time to bring up some questions.  When he finally got around to asking one, it was too late.  Nobody seems to care about all the Dharma crap.

Jack's response was reasonable -  he was pissed off becuase he assumed they knew how Ana Lucia died, and were playing yet more mind games with him. If this wasn't network tv, I'm sure he would have said something stronger than "go watch something."

I liked the part where he listed all of the bad things the Others have done to the survivors. Of course, that could have been said 9 episodes ago...
