Re: Lost: Season Three

Something exceedingly surreal happened when the moderator tried to move season-three posts from the general thread about Lost: the posts got smushed together into a big mass.

Here are highlights, pruned from the mass in the original order but still in a big smush, with no attempt to identify who posted what:

THE LOST POSTS


So, who all watched the season 3 premiere last night and what did they do to poor Kate that cut her arms up so bad???

Yep I saw it! I want to know what they did to Carl?!

No kidding. That was a real WTF moment

Loved the fish biscuit bit.
"Well, how many were there?"
lol!

Yeah that was a good bit. 'I see you've got yourself a fish biscuit!'

It was great. Really felt for Jack. Some reveals but nothing yet on who The Others really are. I think that will be explained soon. The opening scene with the plan crashing was great. Ben (Henry Gale) plays a very good creepy character. "The next 3 weeks are going to be very difficult".

And the new character, Juliette, must be the rumored new love interest for Jack. Nothing like the falling for your captors bit...But something about her motives...She is very strong to knock out Jack with one punch, even if it was unexpected. Also, seems like her and Ben have some sort of history by the way she looked at him and answered him, something about his authority maybe...

Gotta love Sawyer..."It took the bears only a couple of hours". "How many were there?"

I wondered about Juliette knocking out Jack with one punch also....either they do have some sort of super soldier serum, ala the Super-Ethan theories that were going around 1st season, or he was just weak from hunger and dehydration.

Hey, didnt I hear Ben call Ethan "Ethan"? I guess "Ethan Rom" wasnt an entirely ficticious name

Jack was weak from the drugs they had gave him and refusing to eat and drink, and almost drowning, being captured, losing his friends, and a couple of other things.

I'm curious which King book it was, only do to the fact that the guy in the book club described it as something like "religious tripe", which is curious.

There were some easy things to nitpick, like Jack not hiring a private investigator, lol. That would have answered who the other guy was in about a day and a half, lol.

But it was an enjoyable begining to the season.

I thought it was just the handcuffs--like she tried to get out of them and hurt herself. But the more I think about your question, the more I think they may have done something to her, because she looked way more shook up than I expected her to when Sawyer asked her how she (after they locked her in the cage). Being told the next few weeks will be really hard wouldn't normally make her look so unsettled.

Another thing I'm wondering: if she had named Jack first instead of naming Sawyer first when she was talking to the leader, would they have put her in proximity to Jack instead of Sawyer?

I'm looking forward to the mind games Jack and Sawyer and Kate will be subjected to . . .

You can knock somebody out with one punch if you hit them in the right place on their jawline. Karate-girl right here!

Well a lot of people think someone might have "ra_ed" Kate. Just a theory

Now that is a very good question -- which never occurred to me until you brought it up. Because "Henry" did seem very interested in the fact that she did name Sawyer first.

Interesting how much information they had on Jack. Just as it was interesting that they knew Sawyer's real name at the end of last season when they put him on the list.

I did notice that Kate was more traumatized than a breakfast with creepy Henry would seem to warrant, but I didn't make the connection that something must have happened to her that we haven't seen yet.

I really want to know where they got all that information on the survivors.

The book was definitely Carrie. The die-hards on the LOST forums have confirmed this via various screen-caps and good detective work. am wrong.

One other thing I read about is that the original DHARMA station they found with the 108 minute timer was called "Swan" - hence the Swan sign on the door.

There is a project called the Shadow-a-Swan-Project that uses the NOAA satellite to follow the migratory paths of swans.
http://www.uen.org/swan/
NOAA orbits the Earth every 108 minutes - just another thought!

I've not read 'Carrie'. Is it filled with religious themes?

When Ben said he had been on the island all of his life, I wondered if he meant he had been born there, or just that he had lived there as long as he could remember.

Or, of course, if he was just straight-out lying ...

I've been thinking about the Others' good guy and bad guy lists. I find it interesting that they want Jack to give up his desire to know the name of the man his wife hooked up with when she dumped him. Giving it up is a healthy thing for him to do. Of course, getting him to give it up might just be something they can use to break him, but that they wanted him to give it up might also mean that they view him as a good guy and want him to have a healthier attitude.

I guess Sun is on the bad guy list now, because she shot the female Other who told her that doing so would turn her into an enemy.

Funny that Jack laughed at the fact the Boston Red Sox won the World Series instead of when he said that Dubya has been re-elected...

Yes, Sun shooting (but we don't know if she's dead or not) that Other. Does anybody remember what Ben called her when she came down into the place where Jack is being held? I thought he called her "Honey". It seems she was not happy when she saw Juliette talking to Ben...some history there defenitely and some jealousy as well...Sun shooting her will have a huge impact I think and probably not a good one for the 3 captives. What was Sayid thinking or was he? I mean, he's a trained soldier and should of known they could not take the Others just the 3 of them without loosing either a life or the boat..or did he intend to loose the boat?

I've also been wondering about Michael and Walt. It sounds like the Others sent them back to the "real world." That strikes me as odd for two reasons: (1) Walt had some kind of power or tie to the island, so why would the Others send him away? (2) Michael became a bad guy when he killed two people, so why would they reward him by sending him away? (Or maybe they send bad people away?)

Am I unduly hung up on the business about the Other's distinguishing between bad guys and good guys? I can't even remember the episode in which this business came up--nor which of the Others mentioned to one of the crash survivors that the distinction is relevant. Does anyone remember?

I read an article somewhere -- don't remember where, and it's probably an old TV Guide long since sent off to recycling -- that said Michael and Walt would be back.

Yes, before Sun shot that Other, she said: "We are not the enemy Sun (and she even knew her last name). But if you shoot me, you will make us the enemy." But even when Ben was captive he never told anyone why they were not the bad guys. Or did he? Locke, which will feature prominently in this week's episode is the key here maybe. And remember Ben was coming to get Locke when he was captured by Rousseau.

TK, I mean that I'm trying to remember when the good-guy/bad-guy distinction (first?) came up in a previous season, not in the episode last week. Wasn't there a scene where a male Other told one of the plane-crash survivors about it, maybe right before that Other was killed by the survivor? The Other was trying to explain why some of the survivors had been taken or targeted for capture or something: the ones who were taken (or targeted or something) were deemed good guys by the Others.
