Episode 6x13 / Re: Confusion about Sayid

Who the hell's Anakin

why must you taunt me??

You caught that, did ya? haha. I'm kiddin'

You better be, or I'll reach through the internet and pull out your endocrine system. LOL

HAHA. What an odd system to try an remove from me. Just hearing the phrasing of that made me laugh.

I don't know how to go about tracking people locations using IP adresses and such but I was about to try and learn real quick,  It always amazes me how anyone over the age 5, and not female, has no idea what star wars is,

I think these posters know exactly what "Star Wars" is. I think they are just carrying on some sort of "personal inside conversation". Completely off topic I might add, but whatever.

Keep in mind, we don't know the full extent of what was discussed between Sayid and Desmond. Maybe it wasn't just a simple heart to heart, but something more profound.

We'll see, let's hope so...

Okay, I get that talking to Des turned things around with Sayid.  So now the question is if he was truly dead (and everyone who witnessed it testified that Sayid was, in fact, dead-dead) what force resurrected him? I thought everyone was on board with it being an evil entity, right? Thus his allegiance to Flock. So, for me, it was a bit too tidy and quick to reverse all that with a simple heart to heart with Des. But, I do love that it validates the belief that good can prevail over evil and free will lies within even zombies! The execution of that premise (in Sayid's case) just seemed a bit too rushed, convenient, and tied with a big white bow for Lost's usual high standards.

Desmond's 'Jacob-like' confidence when he delivered that line to Sayid was a foretelling of the scene in this episode. 

lostfan777, What "line" are you referring to? I need a memory jog!

Okay, I admit there are a lot of things to be confused about regarding Lost BUT Sayid's character mystifies me this season. It was my understanding he died and was resurrected (by whom I don't know) with a definite zombie turn toward the 'dark side' like Claire. Then he proceeds to follow Flock's every command, while acting completely strange towards the other Losties. Suddenly, he is on the sub and redeems himself by trying to save his friends and giving Jack the message he is the one who must get to Des. Didn't Dogen flat out say Sayid had the sickness within him and it was too late? What happened??

I think I'll just pretend that he was staring at his reflection in the laminated Spainish Johnny's menu.

:-) I'm in. Let's go with that!

Also if he kills all the players and Jacob has no replacement he gets to go free.

It was my understanding that MIB needed the Losties alive and well because he needs them to leave the island with him to successfully "uncork" his evil.

There seems to be a fine line between the kind of dead where you can be resurrected (Sayid and maybe Claire) and truly dead-dead. I guess that is my concern. I realize MIB needs them all to return w/ him to successfully leave the island. So, it seems logic would dictate that they would all have to possess their unaltered souls (no dark side allowed) in order for the "rules" to apply for evil being uncorked...

Episode 6x12 / So, is Jack dead and that's why he is now "with" MIB?
« on: April 21, 2010, 02:38:52 AM »
Having just watched this week's eppy, I was wondering if MIB is saying Jack is "with him" because he died in the explosion? This was an interesting episode, I'm just not sure exactly how it moved us forward. Sawyer offering Kate an apple was a nice twist. Anyway, I welcome your thoughts.

I realize that many posters noticed that (in every episode this season) there was some sort of mirror or reflection image involving a main character during his/her time sideways sequence. Did this episode have any? I don't remember seeing one.

Episode 6x11 / Re: Paleontology wing?
« on: April 14, 2010, 06:06:03 PM »
That seemed like a random thing that Hurley was creating a Paleontology wing at "Golden State University"(is that real?)  Plus, the dinosaur-shaped award. 

Seemed odd, and random-but-not-random.  Anything to that?  [I guess Charlotte is a Paleontogolist, though, and Miles said he knew Charlotte through his dad, who was giving the intro of Hurley.]

In addition to the Sideways TL connecting Miles/Charlotte/Dr. Chang, I think this may also be a "tip of the hat" to Regis Philbin. Since season 1 he has always theorized (during the host-chat segment) that there would eventually be dinosaurs roaming the island.

I think that, since John's return to the island, things are quite different between these three men. Locke oozes self assurance and determination. This leads me to think he may know more (for whatever reason) than either Richard or Ben. He is telling them exactly how things are going to be, rather than the other way around. He seems to be not only in control of things, but one step ahead of them. It's apparent they are a bit shaken by it.

Episode 5x07 / Re: Why didn't Ben want John to visit Mrs. Hawking?
« on: February 27, 2009, 12:24:19 PM »
Some really good points were made regarding this topic BUT...
are we all forgetting one key element. When Ben killed Abaddon bullets were flying everywhere into the car (which could easily have killed John) then, John drives off recklessly and gets into a major auto accident (again, Locke could easily have been killed). If Locke had sped up his own suicide by just a few minutes, Ben would have been too late. So if it was Ben's intention to pump John for information he took a HUGE risk in the way he went about it.

My guess is he didn't want Locke to tell about the mass murder of the dharma folks. She may think she's still dealing with the dharma folks.

Never thought of that Maui-Mudpup. It is a possibility. Good call. We must then assume Eloise's son (we think), Daniel, does not communicate much with his mom because isn't he one of the few islanders with a constant who can come and go?

What I can't buy is Ben's sudden flip-out when he learns John's plan to visit Mrs. Hawking. Why the change? Ben knows about Mrs. Hawking, Ben knows John needs to die. WHY try to save him? It changed nothing as far as I can see. Except for learning about the promise Locke mad to Jin, and the fact that Locke knew about Mrs. Hawking, Ben gained nothing by saving John for a few moments.
There's got to be something more we just don't know about. Some huge reason why John could never be allowed to meet Hawking personally. Which comes full circle to the fact that if he had just let John commit suicide he would never have to worry about him meeting Hawking in the first place!
