Episode 5x14 / Daniel's reaction to the Plane crash
« on: April 30, 2009, 04:15:53 AM »
Okay... we saw this scene what now seems like 100 years ago, but Daniel's reaction to seeing the plane (supposedly flight #815) on the bottom of the ocean is still strange.  I get the feeling (which contradicts what I saw tonight) that Daniel has a moment similar to Desmond's where he all of a sudden knows something and has an emotional response without understanding why (like it is part of a memory).

Also, on a smaller note, why does Daniel initially hide from Dr. Chang if he is going to turn around and immediately start talking to him?  He has the big canister on his shoulder to hide his face as he passes Chang, he barely says anything to the guy Chang was talking to, and turns around to have a face-to-face with Chang.  Odd.

Episode 5x10 / Where are Darryl and Darryl?
« on: March 26, 2009, 03:22:16 AM »
I know this probably doesn't warrant it's own topic, but when I heard Oldham (actor William Sanderson) talk, I was, "DUDE... that's Larry from "Newhart"... surely they'll cameo Darryl and Darryl!"

Episode 5x07 / Walt was foreshadowing
« on: February 27, 2009, 10:23:58 PM »
I tried to glance at the other topics, but didn't see this addressed...

I don't remember the exact quote, but Walt told Locke that he had been dreaming about him.  Walt said something about seeing him on the island, surrounded by people who were angry / yelling / attacking (something along those lines) Locke.

I might be wrong, but I think Locke's "Hey, I've been on this island before and I just came back to life after that guy killed me" explanation is going to be hard for the new "survivors" to accept and Walt was foreshadowing some issues he is about to face.  Thoughts?

Episode 5x06 / Reactions...
« on: February 21, 2009, 04:15:57 AM »
I apologize, but I have to vent for a moment.  Is it me or did the writers really drop the ball on a couple of reactions?  The first one (off the top of my head) was Jack's reaction to Kate when she told him to never ask about Aaron again... could he understand that?  I was thinking, "Hell no I can't understand that.  Whatcha talkin' 'bout, Willis?"  I get that an argument can be made that he's so into Kate that he is willing tom completely walk away from Aaron... but seriously, this is his nephew.  It really doesn't jive with me in terms of his character.

The other scene that annoyed me was the lack of reaction to Ben's appearance at the plane.  He looks like someone took him out to the woodshed and not a single person makes a comment about it.  There wasn't a "Rough night?" or a "So I see Sun met you outside" or anything.  I can't think of a single instance where someone gets the hell beaten out of them, comes up with their arm in a sling, AFTER seeing everyone the day before, and no one even says "boo"!  Whew... I think I can sleep now.  Thanks!

Why Boone, Libby, and Charlie?  What specifically about them made Jack, et al, call them out as Survivors?

I know someone will want to say Charlie is because he spoke with Penny, but she's in on the secret!

Episode 4x10 / Why DID Jack get sick?

Rose brought up a great question... why did Jack get sick? (Goes back to the debate regarding why Ben got sick.)

Episode 4x10 / Why pretending to still be under anestethic?
« on: May 02, 2008, 04:08:51 AM »
After the surgery, when Kate comes in to talk with Juliet, the scene ends with Kate leaving and Juliet saying to Jack something along the lines of, "I know you're awake."  What was up with that?  Other than to provide information to viewers, I can't think of a reason why Jack would feel the need to pretend he was asleep through all of that.

Episode 4x10 / Bernard... the jack of all trades (no pun intended)
« on: May 02, 2008, 03:56:48 AM »
The man can shoot a gun, he can do morse code off the top of his head, and can provide basic medical needs.  Who needs Jack or Locke?

So John Locke comes flying out of the jungle in time to put a knife in Naomi's back (that is strange enough as it is... why not warn her first like he did Jack?).  Ben, seeing Locke for the first time since putting a bullet in his chest and leaving him to die in a pit of bones, doesn't look shocked, doesn't react, nothing.  He only says, "Listen to him Jack" (at which point, Rousseau drops the People's Elbow on him... that was a cheer-worthy moment!)

Did Ben EXPECT to see John come back?

Episode 3x16 / Sayid's Contradiction
« on: April 14, 2007, 12:34:21 AM »
At the beginning of the episode, Sayid basically threatens Juliet if she doesn't tell him everything she knows ("You'll kill me if I do"... "What do you think I am going to do to you if you don't?")  Then, back at the beach, when Sawyer suggests that Sayid tortures her to get answers, Sayid says that he doesn't do that anymore.  THEN, Sayid runs off with Sawyer (of all people) to confront her (and basically threaten her again).  Am I missing something here?

Is it possible that the Losties really are playing Juliet as much as she is playing them?

Episode 3x16 / Kate and Juliet being "dragged" into the jungle
« on: April 13, 2007, 08:17:57 PM »
Maybe I am a little slow on this one, but one thing that has bothered me is that Juliet told Kate the she dragged Kate out and then handcuffed herself to Kate.  When they were walking back to Othersville, Kate was following the path supposedly left by being dragged out there.  If Kate is good enough to follow this path, wouldn't she have noticed that there was only one person being dragged the entire way?  Sure, you might be able to drag people "single file" (ie, similar to how Sand People march to hide their numbers... sorry, Star Wars reference), but you wouldn't be able to hide it over a long distance.
