Title: danielle at the black rock
Post by: HanginWithMrEko on May 03, 2007, 12:12:23 AM
what is this nut going to be doing with the dynamite?!?

Is it just coincidence she was there at that exact moment? I'd say no...

She needs the TNT to booby-trap her new home.

Danielle is kinda creepy.  I don't like the idea of her with unstable dynamite!!

i think she's an other, think about it, john knew her name, she knew his... they acted like they'd been living in the same camp for... i dont know... a week

This is a great topic.  I had almost forgotten that she was there with all of the other action going on.

But, I think the ultimate reason was to provide a witness for what happened.  Locke is going to be awol for awhile.  There needs to be a witness.  Sawyer will never tell anyone what happened.

They knew each other via the many trips they've been on together... One to the Black Rock to begin with w. Mr. Arzt and the one this season when they met up w/ Mikhail in Enter 77.

I think she is planning on blowing something up to get her daughter back.  The last time we saw Danielle, was the first time she saw Alex.

I agree.  She's going to blow up something that belongs to the others.  In fact... that reminds me of something, but I guess I should keep quiet.

Im agreeing, ive sweared from the beginning shes the other, thats why she didnt wanna bump into patchy or anyone, i swear shes an other!

Or maybe she's just setting some more booby-traps.  What else is there to blow up?  And...where is Alex?  We haven't seen her with Ben.  Why haven't we thought of it? Ben kept her boyfriend away because he didn't want her to die!!!

Rousseau and Locke are the TNT-team! :D
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: ButchFitz on May 03, 2007, 01:32:00 AM
either Rousseau knows what she's doing, or she's going to explode very soon.
Remember how careful the Lostie party was when they found the dynamite? Rousseau just grabbed a box of boomsticks and walked out like it was no big deal.

A Danielle Flashback sometime this century Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse

You think they would have given her some stability by now.  She's still the Crazy French lady....ohh my god that just reminded me of a movie with Richard Greico as Michael Corben and the French Teacher...haha

Hellz yeah good movie:  If looks could kill

Post by: this is some crazy stuff on May 03, 2007, 03:36:33 AM
I think she is setting some kind of trap up somewhere but i dont know where.

It is weird that we havent seen Alex with Ben and also havent seen her boyfriend in a long time.

Where did he go.

Maybe to Visit with Rose, Bernard, Michael, and Walt. ;D

Post by: DaddyBeast on May 03, 2007, 08:15:00 AM
Danielle knows where Alex is now, and she knows more about what is going on.  She must have some kind of plan, and my guess is we will see her in the finale.

Rousseau is not crazy,she is a mother who has had her baby stolen she now knows where she is at,Remember she has been on crap hole Island for 16 years,she knows alot more about it than our Losties.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: Maxor127 on May 03, 2007, 10:11:39 AM
She's still crazy... wouldn't it be funny and ironic if Alex got killed by one of her traps?

That's actually a pretty good reason for her to BE crazy ;) She thinks she's acting rationally when in reality, she's just kinda creepy ;D

I DONT THINK SHE'S AN OTHER

HOWEVER, I THOUGHT THAT WHOLE SCENE WAS FREAKIN WEIRD!!!! BIGTIME

I THINK SHE'S MAKING A MOVE FOR ALEX

Oh, if only we would find out more about Rousseau's background...

Spoiler
Danielle flashback promised for next season, iirc
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: matahari on May 03, 2007, 12:48:24 PM
Donde esta Alex? Did anyone notice the absence of Alex. Rousseau shows up looking for dynamite and Ben is seen clutching his photograph of Alex when the others are packing up. What is going down?
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: Ladybug on May 03, 2007, 01:59:14 PM
isn't she the one who showed the losties where the dynamite was in the first place?  i think she knows how "unstable" it is.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: CurtYanko on May 03, 2007, 02:19:27 PM
Certainly something is going to blow before the season ends!

One of the funniest scene's though with a mutually tacit don't-ask don't-tell aspect to it.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: Nancy Drew on May 03, 2007, 02:42:38 PM
I wish they would have shown in the flashback what happened to Danielle when the sub blew up.  She just disappeared after she saw Alex and this is the first we've seen of her since then. 

Also, I can't even imagine what she would be using the dynamite for.  Her traps have always been non-explosive, so I can't imagine that she is using it for those.  This just isn't her style of attack.  She is more the silent-sneaking-up-to-you type.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: DizzyIzzy on May 03, 2007, 02:52:26 PM
My thought was that she was going to blow up something and get her daughter back.  I don't think she's all that creepy (Ben is creepy to me).  I think I'd probably end up like her if I was on some mysterious island where people stole my daughter and I feared for my life 24 hours a day.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: WG?JIFFY on May 03, 2007, 03:18:02 PM
Do you all find her reaction to seeing the Others and Othersville strange?  She has been here for 16yrs and never seen the micro-fence or Othersville, or other people on the island(besides the losties)?  I would have walked around the whole island by now, but not her.  Then she sees a whole little village and hmm hadn't seen that before?  Just is all kinda suspicious.

I think she is going to blow up the fence so she can go live in Othersville with electricity and plumbing.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: gjohnson on May 03, 2007, 03:26:38 PM
Unstable woman with unstable explosives... this ought to be good.

My guess is she's on her way to Othersville to take care of business.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: solost on May 03, 2007, 03:52:13 PM
I thought this was a funny scene.....She just happens by for a case of dynamite on her way home....RIGHT! She has seen her baby and wants her back and no one is going to stop her. I think she is going to strap it to Ben's butt and blow is BUG-EYES to hell and gone!!!!!
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: PrincessLeia on May 03, 2007, 03:55:13 PM
That was funny.  She's just the typical island mom out running errands. Don't forget to pick up the papayas, the long grass for net weaving, the dry-cleaning, & the case of dynamite before picking Alex up from soccer practice. ??? :-\ :)
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: Ailiu on May 03, 2007, 04:46:11 PM
I'm a little afraid to ask what Danielle is doing with TNT.  :D  Like a crazy person needs to be playing around with explosives!  The short anwser is that she wants to blow something up though. ;)


I thought she was uncomfortable about going to the Black Rock because it's in the area where her shipmates got sick.  ???  Maybe her first trip with the Losties allowed her to face her fears and she's not as concerned about going there now.  :-\


Some of the explanations here are funny!  :D  I'll be a bit disappointed when we learn what she was really doing with the TNT.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: firemanandlostfan on May 03, 2007, 05:26:39 PM
I havent seen this mentioned, anyone have any ideas why she would be at the Black Rock getting dynamite?  It seemed like she really didnt want to stick around and answer questions why she was getting it and Locke didnt want her around to ask questions about who was locked in the "Brig".  They both seemed like "um yeah im doing something wrong and dont wanna talk about it, ok see ya later"

what is this nut going to be doing with the dynamite?!?

She's not a "nut".  She's a very intelligent and crafty woman who probably knows a lot more than you are giving her credit for.  To dismiss her character as just a 'nut' who has no value really says something about your ability to understand the larger implications of the show.  Even if she is a little strange, you would be too if you had been marooned on craphole island by yourself for 16 years with only polar bears and smoke monsters to keep you company.

I think she is going to blow up the fence so she can go live in Othersville with electricity and plumbing.

That was my first thought, too.  But she already used the tree to hop over it.  She must be planning something big though if she is going to use all that dynamite... as in move a lot of people in at once, or move big things into othersville or out of it. 

It was interesting that Alex wasn't at the camp (correct me if I'm wrong) because since we have first seen her with the others, she has been in every other other episode.  We haven't seen her since she showed Locke the sub.  Maybe she was taken somewhere other than the camp, somewhere locked tight, and Danielle needs all that TNT to blast through to her.

I know.  I was just kidding around there.   :D

Besides I think we're all a little nutty. ;)  There's nothing wrong with that-- it makes life interesting.

As always, things are not shown just because...
What do you think was Rousseau's (can't spell that..) part in appearing for such a short period ?

My thoughts (on why was she shown) :


Comments ??? What is she up to ? and why nobody cares why she keeps disappearing ?
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: firemanandlostfan on May 04, 2007, 12:02:51 PM
she is planning on getting her daughter back was my thoughts, last we saw her she was hiding out watching Alex.  I think revenge is on her mind.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: this is some crazy stuff on May 04, 2007, 12:48:12 PM
I think she is planning something and she was shown there because ever since The Man from Tallahasee the viewers have been saying.  Wheres russou   now we say oh there she is.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: CurtYanko on May 04, 2007, 02:51:55 PM
I think is a way for the writers to put dynamite in play so yes, she is going to blow something up and it's not a stretch to think it is connected to Alex in some way.
Title: Re: danielle at the black rock
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on May 05, 2007, 12:30:29 PM
Yeah, I wouldn't pick up a case of dynamite by two hundred year old ropes.... maybe she stashed something in the case and there isn't any explosives at all! 
Maybe that's where she keeps all of her dharma notebooks...!

I almost wish this would have been the case!!  That would be great! 

Dharma Protocol if--the Flame station is blown up...
                        --the sub gets blown up...
                        --if you forget the fence shut down code...
