LOST Talk / Benjamin Linus: Prison Counselor
« on: April 24, 2007, 01:12:58 PM »
A friend of mine sent me this.  About 1/3 of the way in, you'll see a much younger Michael Emerson.  Sorry if this has already been posted or is in the wrong place.

Episode 3x16 / Has Juliet met Jacob?
« on: April 12, 2007, 01:30:04 AM »
Ben invokes Jacob when trying to convince Juliet to stay.  It seems a convincing argument to her.  Does she know who Jacob is?  Has she met him?  Is Jacob a doctor? Does this advance the Christian argument?

Episode 3x15 / Sawyer making nice
« on: April 05, 2007, 01:09:46 AM »
I get the point of what Hurley was doing, but here's what bothers me.  SAWYER IS A CON MAN.  Now, I know he's projecting this curmudgeonly, antisocial, "I'm only looking out for me, but I'll begrudgingly show affection for others because despite myself I want to be part of the team" demeanor, and maybe that's his true nature.  But, SAWYER IS A CON MAN.  What is it that con men do?  Oh, right, they get people to like and trust them.  But that's a huge chore for Sawyer, getting people to like and trust him.  He just doesn't have a clue how to do that.  Oh, wait, I forgot SAWYER IS A CON MAN. 

Not saying there's anything significant about this.  Just really bugged me.  Although it was endearing watching Sawyer be all awkward around Claire and really wanting to be part of the group.  He's not such a bad guy after all...DOH!!! HAVE I BEEN CONNED? :)

Episode 3x10 / Work Man?
« on: March 01, 2007, 01:50:51 PM »
That's an odd phrasing.  "Worker" or "workman" would be more appropriate for a job title.  I don't think I've ever heard of anyone being described as a "Work Man".  Did anyone else find this strange?

Episode 3x09 / Other Others debunked?
« on: February 22, 2007, 11:17:55 AM »
It has seemed to be a consensus that there was another group of "Others" on the island.  Has that been laid to rest now that we know Ben's group took Cindy and the children?   If so, how to explain the kidnappings and attacks on the Tailies the first night on the island?  Why would Ben send Goodwin to infiltrate and then send another group the same day to attack them?

Episode 3x08 / Where did the "flashback" end?
« on: February 15, 2007, 01:48:05 PM »
Or rather when?  I can't remember, but think it's crucial to understanding Des's experience.  After getting hit by the bat I'm pretty sure he popped back to right before turning the key.  Is this right or did he return to a post-failsafe island?

If it was pre-key turn, then I believe the flashback/time travel/do over was concocted by the island because he was hesitating.  There's precedence for this type of "island intervention" to get a character to do or go what/where it wants: Eko/Yemmi, Jack/Christian, Locke/Boone, etc.

If the island wanted the failsafe used, this would tie in nicely with theories about the Swan station being designed to rein in some natural force already on the island.

If Desmond's thing occurred between turning the key and waking up naked, then we're dealing with some sort of time travel, which would suck because it's sort of a cop-out.  I'd rather the whole series be some sort of Gilligan's Island dream sequence than to be based on time travel.  Time warping or displacement as a result of whatever power (magnetism? psychokinesis?) is driving the island would be okay, and I think there is something of that sort going on, but straight-up time travel?  No thanks.
