Yup!!! and sayid closed her eyes pretty easily.  don't they....stay open otherwise?  i thought i read that in morgues they have to glue eyes shut.  and when i was in my cna class they told us that if we ever found a dead body part of preparing it for the family was to put moist cotton balls on the eyes if they wouldnt shut.  eh.

Offline this is some crazy stuff

Basically, she has been dead for less than a day now.  They are respecting her dead body by taking her back to the freighter and maybe back to the real world to give her a propper (barriel)sp???    Its pretty is to get i think

It is telling that Sayid is concerned about maintaining proper burial practices for a stranger who possibly is an enemy.  Burial at sea for a mercenary would have been appropriate. It suggests a contrivance by the writers to keep her around long enough for the spider venom to wear off.

It did remind me of how Sayid wanted Essam to have a proper burial.

Was Essam the friend Kelvin made Sayid torture in Iraq?

if she was in fact still alive (ie spider venom) her face would NOT have been BLUE

please re-watch, they did some good makeup on her, showing rigo has begun to set in


she's dead, just like christian, just like nikki and paulo, just like charlie

I just checked. On a 43" plasma.  To me, her complexion still looks normal.  According to:

     http://www.deathreference.com/Py-Se/Rigor-Mortis-and-Other-Postmortem-Changes.html

her complexion should be stained with a purple-red discoloration by now, and her skin sagging due to gravity.  I don't see either of those. And no flies buzzing about.

It's Lost, not CSI. I think there is a morbid factor they are just glossing over here. She looks pretty pale and the eyes look dead to me. While in real life it would be nastier, in movie-land, she's dead.

Let's not forget Miles "spoke" to her.

I would think that Naomi is dead due to the fact that Kate saw her knife wound and she basiclly bleed out from that.
Looking last night at her face it did appear to look similar to Nikki and Paulo.
Eyes kinda glazed over not moving, shoot she's just high.

Patchy and Locke survived substantial blood loss.

That's a good point. Tho we don't know how Miles' gift works yet, he did seem to indicate that Jack & Kate's version of events was accurate, from his 'read' of corpse Naomi. 

And maybe the writers will never utilize the spider gimmick again, for fear of reminding us about the Nikki/Paulo fiasco. I guess I'm hoping Naomi did come back to life, as that would shed some light on the Patchy dead-or-alive question.
