Get LOST – Confirmed Dead

What an episode! Not much in the process of helping the story along so much as it is pulling back some of the shrouded mist around “the Island.” Other than that we have here a filler to what’s coming around the corner.

The word is out and the world knows that Oceanic 815 crashed and now knows “where:” South of Thailand. We loose our flash-forwards and instead receive flash bits of info of our new visitors. 4 oddballs assembled to apparently find Ben! And if that’s not weird enough: they apparently were contracted by Creepy McCreepster who visited Hurley at the mental institute from last week’s episode. Our Losties are in 2 camps now being led by Man-of-the Island-Locke and Man-getting-off-the-Island-Jack.

Our new visitors include:

  • I enjoy Dan. He’s real quirky and Johnny Depp-like. I hope they keep him around. I can’t tell if he’s a really good actor or a really bad one yet πŸ™‚ I mean sometimes he’s dead pan hilarious and I don’t know if he means to or not but I like it. His “light” comment is frighteningly interesting. I don’t know what that means.
  • I can’t stand Miles and hopes he gets knocked off soon. I mean seriously, a ghost buster who uses a mini-vac to rip people off?! Besides, we already have 1 wise guy name calling macho man with a chip on his shoulder and manages to piss everyone off but we all love that guy! This guy’s just annoying.
  • I am intrigued by Charlotte. Charlotte Staples Lewis. We are familiar with another CS Lewis from England who wrote a novel of transportation into another world full of redemption/salvation/oddities. Interesting but possibly coincidence?
    She or “they” obviously know a bit about the island as well. She seemed surprised and excited that Claire was able to conceive on the island. She or “they” are aware of Dharma.
  • Our new pilot who saw a cow.

On to our Losties:

  • Thank God for Sawyer! I mean for crying out loud why isn’t everyone else asking these questions!?!? Ironically, he seems the most aware of reality now that Jack’s blinded by escape and Locke’s blinded by the Island. I loved the Taller-ghost-Walt comment. He reminded me that I really do like Sawyer. And he really does like Kate πŸ™‚
  • Locke and Ben‘s look of surprise over Hurley’s encountering the cabin was neat. Obviously, we see the cabin is truly special if not spiritual in some way.
  • Kate and Jack really let me down. I mean for someone used to running from the law, it should have been obvious to Kate that these guys aren’t who they say they are, especially Dan! Then they both leave the crate of gas masks!!! Then Jack just lets Miles kind of do as he pleases! The end’s near Jack but not that close!!
  • WHERE THE HELL IS DESMOND?!?!

So that’s what I saw. What are your thoughts?!?! Here are Alex’s. Conspiracy theories and fun coming soon πŸ™‚

    Charlotte Staples Lewis = Clive Staples Lewis?

    I wonder what they’re getting at.

    @Scoots yeah I watched it 2x last night πŸ™‚ Couldn’t sleep.

    @worshipguitarist I don’t know if its over analyzing it or not (however you can’t really over analyze LOST) but it kind of makes sense. I was struck in the hour recap before the season premiere how often Ben’s narration said things about the Island like it’s opportunity for: redemption/salvation/new beginning/etc. for those who’ve found it.
