Remixed Version Of This Episode To Air Before Finale
« on: May 20, 2008, 06:48:07 PM »
I'm just listening to the latest official podcast.

They said that there's going to be an expanded version of the press conference, with more questions and answers.

I'm not a big fan of stuff like this. While the pop-up things they did on re-airing were sometimes informative and useful, when you air two different versions of an episode, then which one is considered "canon" ? Which one gets included on the DVD? Both? A mix of the two?

Extended versions (with scenes that were cut for time put back in) don't bother me as much, because none of the original content was edited. But if you have to take other content out and basically air a totally different cut of the show, that bothers me.

That being said, I'll be very curious to hear what additional info they put in to the press conference.

I would have liked more questions about the 2 that died from the press. wouldn't that normally be a topic? Wouldn't the families of the two want to talk to the 06 about them?

I know this couldn't be part of the repeat /extended press conference,  since that would be telling us too much.That is too big of a reveal to have on a extended repeat.  and it wouldn't be fair to the people who don't watch the repeats with the pop ups.

So I'm thinking whatever extended footage they are going to show us isn't going to be that big a deal.  :(

This is probably being discussed elsewhere, but they say a lot of amazing things here....

We'll hear about the O2 in the extended press conference.

Jack was saved by the Island when he was about to jump off the bridge.

Ben and Widmore can't kill each other because the Island won't let them.

A fan suggested that the fact that Tunisia and the Island are antipodal (exactly opposite each other on the Earth) is the reason you can teleport there. And they said yup.

We'll see the finished Orchid video.

They sounded as serious as they ever get when they revealed all that.

I didn't see this topic anywhere else. Could you tell me where I can read this? Is it a podcast? I can't believe they are going to talk about the 02! This is in the rerun?!
Am I the only one that finds this strange?

I guess that explains the "rules" between Widmore and Ben.  Since we can't kill each other, we agree to not go after each others friends and family as that would get out of control and wouldn't solve anything.  Once Ben's daughter was killed, Ben hired Sayid to rev up the hit machine.  I'm looking forward to the episode where they figure out they can't kill each other.  Ben throws a knife at Widmore and it bounces off his belt buckle.  Widmore throws Ben out a window, just as a passing mattress truck rolls underneath.  Ben blows up the building Widmore is in, but only just after a magical dragon flies in the window and grabs Widmore and flies him to Narnia...the possibilities are endless.

And as far as teleporting goes, I wouldn't want to be the first one to teleport after moving the island...the opposite side of the Earth after the move might be an ocean, a volcano, or even New Jersey.  The odd thing is that I now have to wonder if Ben teleports off before or after they move the island.  Since the Polar Bear is in Tunisia, I have to assume that Ben teleports before they move the island as that is where he ends up (probably with Keamy's bullet in his arm).  If he teleports after they move the island, he would have theoretically ended up somewhere else.

I agree that we may well see Ben teleport just before the Island moves. Not sure who's going to injure his arm, could be any of our Losties in the neighborhood as easily as Keamy.

Actually, the repeat episode that they said was going to be different, hasn't come on yet.
It's the "no place like home " episode with the press conference, and that is to come on right before the season finale. three hours of lost on Thursday! So your good! You didn't miss it. ;D

OMG I am so excited!!!  I can't wait!

Thanks for all the great info everyone!

I wonder why Jack is so important to the Island that it would potentially sacrifice another human life in order to save him??

I get Tunisia and Ben vs. Widmore..very cool stuff.
