I wonder if the rocks that Sawyer and Kate were loading was for the rebuilt temple....nah.

I'm sticking to Juliet's explanation:  "We're building a runway for the aliens."

Where are Richard and his peeps headed?

Who/what are they worshipping?

How?

Can anyone come?

What's in the temple?

Anyone?  Anyone?  Anyone? (Yes, I once had Mr. Bueller as a student ;).)

Think there might be a bunch of 4 toed statues for sale in the bookstore?  Hmmm??  Do ya?  Do ya?


Would love to know what you all think.

I think it has something to do with the beauty/power/worth/value of the island.  (I LOVE the fact the island has gone from a place that people want to get off --  a la Gilligan -- to a place people want to get back to or never leave.  Dorothy, we ain't in Kansas anymore.)

When Ben mentioned the temple, it definitely caught my ear right away. I'd be willing to bet that it does have to do with "Pinky", the four toed statue!

Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on May 25, 2007, 07:14:36 PM
I think the statue is a little too exposed to be the temple, especially with Naomi's group on the way.  The temple may shed more light on the statue, but I don't believe it is the statue itself.  Anyhow, I think the temple will be a well sheltered spot with lots to tell us about Old Island History.  Maybe the temple is the name of another hatch?  It would make sense that they need a place to regroup, resupply, and all that jazz.

Something I can't get out of my head is the fact that Olivia was teaching Ben's class about Volcanoes and we learned that one erupted a long time ago on the island.  I wonder if the volcano and the temple have anything to do with each other.

The temple is where they take Christians body to regenerate back to life, This way everyone wins.

The temple is one of the best parts of story going into season 4. I hope that they show us where the temple came from and not just show us what it is now.

Post by: leximan on May 30, 2007, 02:37:34 PM
I think the temple is a place in the dark territory where the "hostiles"(word the dharma people used) lived. Where Richard lived when he met young  Ben.
I believe Richard is native of the island and he has 4 toes...
Title: Re: the temple

Richard could have no toes and still be sexy as all get out!!!  :)

Ooooo, very good, I like that idea. I had heard that there was a rumored new set being built but I really like the idea of it being the 'main' set for the season (complete with flashbacks of a four toed race of pygmy giants!)

Did you just say pygmy giants?
Title: Re: the temple
Post by: laklost on May 31, 2007, 12:41:42 PM
Yes, I think he did.

But he's from the Balck Rock website and he knows a LOT, so maybe there is a giant amongst the PYGMIES or a pygmy amongst the GIANTS.

I want to be in on the casting call for that round. :P

What like Joe vs. The Volcano. Someone needs to be sacrificed into the volcano in order to appease the Island? Maybe a pregnant woman or someone willing to die for the Island.

I was reading the description of "The Fountainhead" that Sawyer was reading.  The architect the story is about design's a temple to the human spirit: Mallory agrees to sculpt a statue of the human spirit for the temple. Roark suggests Dominique for a model. For the next few months, Roark works with brilliant intensity. He designs a horizontal temple, scaled to human height. He wants it to bring the sky down to man and allow visitors to find strength.

Um.  I don't know!  I'd rather the temple end up being more of a hatch...but maybe it is more of a place that Richard's people identify with, so a more ancient part of the island.

Post by: LouE68 on January 14, 2008, 08:20:23 PM
I have a feeling its going to be a something that once was, with little explaination to add to the mystery, one of those things you never find out about. Just a meeting/hiding place now. But I could be wrong...
Title: Re: the temple
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on January 14, 2008, 08:59:20 PM
OK.  So I rewatched The Brig and Ben says to Locke that "we are going someplace new. well, someplace old, actually."  Which I'm assuming is the temple.  So.  I guess it's old, and probably is more along the lines of the columns that cooper was tied to like already mentioned.
Title: Re: the temple
Post by: jugdish on January 14, 2008, 09:44:14 PM
COuld it be related to the 4 toe statue??
Title: Re: the temple
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on January 14, 2008, 10:04:53 PM
I would think it must.  "Well, and old place, actually..."  That statue seemed old and crumbling.  It seemed to go along with the columns, though those were the only two old looking structures we've seen.  The temple is far away from the barracks, and Dharma may not have even known about it.  It could be that the temple is a special place, sort of like the native version of the barracks- another base camp/stronghold type of thing.

That's a good way to put it.  They have said from the begining that not everything will get an answer.  So some of the mystery will be for us to come up with on our own.........until I kidnap Carlton Cuse and make him my slave....!

maybe the entrance is actully where the 5th toe was.  maybe they blew it up so that no one could get in the hatch!  that's where the toe went!

hey, that's anothe connection to the number 5!!!

Latest Temple development: the map Ben gave to Rousseau/Alex/Carl shows the Temple somewhere in the island's interior, along a ridgeline, and not close to the coast.  I.e. it's not near the 4-toed statue.  However, it was odd that the symbol for the Temple, and the map's look & feel, was like that on the map Charlotte had of the Tempest.  Were these maps made during Dharma's heyday?  If so, that Widmore now seems to have been the man behind Dharma, it makes sense that he'd have access to Dharma-era maps like the one provided to Charlotte.

Question is, would Widmore have been able to get a mole onto the island, with access to communication? Or did he compromise one of Ben's people off-island, like Mr. Friendly, to acquire updates on Ben's doings on the island?  How else would he have known that taking the Tempest offline was such a high priority?

Okay perhaps we are beating this point into the ground.  We know that the Island belonged to Widmore at some point.  So if he was involved with Dharma and had been on the island etc.  then it would stand to reason that he would know about the tempest and have maps of the island, as noted.

Daniel and the other members of the team came well equipped so, there is no doubt that Widmore has intimate knowledge of what is on that island not necessarily have a mole.  If he had a mole then he might be able to get on the island.

I've been posting this in a few threads already, but here it goes again:

Widmore told Ben, "The island is mine, Benjamin.  It always was.  It will be again."  I think he was more than just involved with Dharma.  I think he goes back MUCH farther than that!

Lakie did this happen already?  With the season finale no one was at the temple it was the orchid they focused on.  So with that said the season done, Ben is banished from the island.

If at any time Widmore moved the island then it means that he can't go back to it.

I know that he said it will be his again, but there are pieces here that we are not aware of as to why he may or may not be able to go back.

An archaeological site would be awesome!

RE: Widmore's mole. It could be that Widmore does have an person, or shall I say entity to monitor the island and send reports - the smoke monster. Granted it appears Ben "controls" it, but what else seems to be all over the island, can scan people at whim and take a variety of shapes so it can be anything or even anyone?? Perhaps the control is not entire but Smokey protects the island so if someone is using him for that purpose he obeys.

the temple is still an amazing place I was there the other day (just joking) it would be nice if they did get to this already.  I mean Locke meets up with Richard at the end of last season and guess what if that is the Temple then we are in for major disappointment.

But we know better ;D
