"LOST": "KIDNAPPING A CHILD"

I was reading this article about the girl who had been kidnapped at 11 and found, 18 years later. And it made me think of the numerous child kidnappings that have occurred on "LOST":


*Ben Linus' kidnapping of Alex Rousseau, Danielle's infant daughter. Ben had kidnapped Alex when she was an infant, against Charles Widmore's orders. He pretended to be her father for sixteen years. Eventually, mother and daughter were finally able to reunite. But they were never able to enjoy their reunion, due to them both being killed by Charles Widmore's hired thugs within a few days.


*Walt Lloyd's kidnapping by Tom Friendly, at Ben's orders. We all know the circumstances that resulted from that particular kidnapping. Walt's father, Michael Dawson, disappeared for a while to search for Walt. Once he found the Others, he made a deal with them to free Ben, who had become the Losties' prisoner. In order to free Ben, he murdered Ana-Lucia Cortez and accidentally killed Libby. Then he made a deal with the Others to lead Jack Shephard, Kate Austen, James Ford and Hugo Reyes to their camp....

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.10) "The 23rd Psalm"

During its six years on the air, "LOST" managed to earn five Emmy nominations for Writing in a Drama Series. The series earned its second writing nomination for its Season Two episode called (2.10) "The 23rd Psalm".

Written by showrunners Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, and directed by Matt Earl Beesley; "The 23rd Psalm" is the first "LOST" episode to explore the backstory of Tail Section survivor, Mr. Eko. The episode began several decades earlier, when guerilla fighters arrived at a small Nigerian village. The guerilla fighters are there to recruit young boys for their army. They try to force one of the boys to shoot an old boy. When the boy hesitates, his older brother takes the gun and commits the deed. The older brother, the future Mr. Eko, is forced to join the guerilla fighters. Over two decades later, Eko (now a warlord) meets with drug dealers who needs to get their heroin out of the country. Eko offers to buy the drugs at a low price and get them out of Nigeria. The drug runners' leader agrees to the deal. But after he makes a commit about Eko's soul, the latter kills them all...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.09) "What Kate Did"

Kate Austen has to be one of the most divisive characters on the ABC series, "LOST". The character has generated some very extreme reactions from the show's fans. The latter have either loved her or hated her. I had harbored a good deal of dislike toward Kate, myself for a long period. However, my dislike stemmed from the writers' handling of her character and a good number of the fans' attitude toward the mistakes and crimes she had committed. A good example of this attitude could be found in the general reaction to the Season Two episode called (2.09) "What Kate Did".

This episode followed up on the disastrous first meeting between the remaining Tail Section survivors and the Fuselage survivors in episodes (2.06) "Abandoned" and (2.08) "Collision". Ana-Lucia Cortez and her fellow Tailies finally made it to the Fuselage camp, but with tragedy in their wake. Ana-Lucia had accidentally shot and killed Shannon Rutherford, after mistaking the younger woman for the Others, following the disappearance of stewardess Cindy Chandler. James "Sawyer" Ford; who had been badly wounded by...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.07) "The Other 48 Days"

I cannot deny that "LOST" will always be one of my top twenty (20) favorite television series of all time. Nor can I deny that despite my feelings about it, the writing had been flawed on many occasions. If there is an episode that truly reflected my positive feelings about the series, it is the Season Two episode called (2.07) "The Other 48 Days".

This episode is probably my TOP favorite one in the entire series. Before "The Other 48 Days" aired, I had been watching "LOST" for at least a little over a month. In fact, (2.02) "Adrift" was the very first episode I had ever watch. Although I did watch most of the episodes that aired between "Adrift" and "The Other 48 Days", I found it difficult to feel the series' magic. I was about to give up on the series for good when "The Other 48 Days" aired in late November 2005. Not only did I enjoy the episode, I became a permanent fan of the series.

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.94) "Everybody Hates Hugo"

Unless I am mistaken, Season Two of "LOST" is not very popular with the show's fans. This season expanded on the Hatch (DHARMA Swan Station) subplot that was touched upon in the second half of Season One. This season introduced a tiresome running joke surrounding the Michael Dawson character. And it also featured the introduction of the survivors from Oceanic 815's Tail Section, which included the unpopular character, Ana-Lucia Cortez. In some way, the fourth episode - (2.04) "Everybody Hates Hugo" - seemed to be some kind of manifestation of Season Two.

Aside from the joke regarding Michael Dawson, "Everybody Hates Hugo" touched upon most of the topics I brought up in the previous paragraph. In the previous episode, (2.03) "Orientation", the survivors of Michael's raft (Michael, James "Sawyer" Ford and Jin Kwon) were captured by a mysterious group of people upon their return to the Island. "Everybody Hates Hugo" focused on their incarceration inside a deep pit. Before Sawyer could finish plotting their escape, the mysterious group revealed to be survivors from Oceanic 815's Tail...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (1.01-1.02) "The Pilot"

The pilot episode of some of my favorite television series have rarely impressed me . . . if not at all. There are a few exceptions to the rule. And one of those exceptions happened to the be pilot episode for ABC-TV's "LOST".

Created by J.J. Abrams, Jeffrey Leiber and Damon Lindelof, "LOST" aired on television for six seasons, between 2004 and 2010. As many fans know, "LOST" told about the survivors of a commercial passenger plane crash on a mysterious South Pacific island, while flying between Sydney and Los Angeles. While television viewers got to know these survivors during their time on the island, but also through flashbacks revealing their past. The series' first episode aired in two parts on September 22, 2004.

(1.01) "Pilot (Part 1)" introduced the series' leading character, a spinal surgeon named Dr. Jack Shephard, who wakes up in the middle of the jungle following the crash of Oceanic Airlines Flight 815. He stumbles onto the beach and finds the chaos left behind from Oceanic 815's crash. As everyone knows, the plane broke into three pieces before crashing on the...

"A DEADLY CHOICE"

One of the most emotionally devastating episodes that aired on ABC's "LOST" (2004-2010) turned out to be the Season Six episode, (6.14) "The Candidate". The episode marked a final turning point in the saga's main narrative. More importantly, it featured the deaths of three main characters who had been with the series since the beginning.

The fact that three long-standing characters met their deaths made "The Candidate" a topic of great debate by "LOST" fans. The fact that the three characters happened to be non-Western - Jin and Sun Kwon, along with Sayid Jarrah - added fuel to the episode's controversial nature. But the main controversy that emerged from "The Candidate" centered around a choice made by Jin Kwon. It was a choice that affected (off screen) his and Sun's young daughter back in South Korea, Ji-Yeon.

The end of the previous episode, (6.13) "The Last Recruit" saw the Kwons and other Losties prisoners of billionaire and former Other Charles Widmore on Hydra Island. Widmore called himself protecting the castaways from the Smoke Monster, now assuming the form of the late John Locke....

Over five years ago, (4.10) "Something Nice Back Home", a Season Four episode of "LOST" aired for the first time and I wrote a review of the episode. After a new, recent viewing, I decided to write another article on the episode:


"LOST" RETROSPECT: (4.10) "Something Nice Back Home"

I am beginning to wonder if (4.10) "Something Nice Back Home", a Season Four episode from "LOST", might be one of the most misunderstood episodes of the series. When I recently viewed it for a second time in four years, I came to a realization that I may have misunderstood it.

"Something Nice Back Home" is basically a Jack Shephard episode that featured three main subplots - two of them about the very intense Dr. Shephard. One of them centered on James "Sawyer" Ford, Claire Littleton and Miles Straume's efforts to reach the Oceanic 815 survivors' beach camp, after surviving the near massacre at the Others' compound by mercenary Martin Keamy and his merry band of killers. The second subplot was about Dr. Juliet Burke's efforts to save Jack's life after he had been struck down by appendicitis. And the final subplot...

SAWYER'S RANT IN "LOST" (2.16) "The Long Con"

In the Season Two episode of "LOST" called (2.16) "The Long Con", Jack ransacked Sawyer's tent for some painkillers that the latter had previously taken.In response to Jack's action, Sawyer decided to pull a con job on the castaways, in order to secure control of their guns. When Sawyer finally revealed his con job to the castaways, he said the following:

"That's right, Jack. He's as stupid as you are. You were so busy worrying about each other you never even saw me coming, did you? How about you listen up because I'm only going to say this once. You took my stuff. While I was off trying to get us help -- get us rescued -- you found my stash and you took it, divvied it up -- my shaving cream, my batteries, even my beer."

Now, I understood why Sawyer was upset at Jack for going into his tent and taking that bottle of pills. Jack had no business going into his tent without permission. But his rant about the castaways dividing up his stash after he left the island on Michael's raft in Season One's (1.23-1.24) "Exodus" struck me as infantile.

Below is an article I had written about the Season Five episode of "LOST" (2004-2010) called (5.09) "Namaste":


"LOST" RETROSPECT: (5.09) Namaste"

"Namaste" is a term used commonly on the Indian subcontinent that is used as a greeting and a parting valediction between individuals. I suppose that this word might be the proper title for this ninth episode from Season Five from ABC's "LOST". (5.09) "Namaste" served as a crossroad for the series' fifth season. It served as a closure for some of the season's story arcs and a beginning for others.

The episode opened where the sixth episode, (5.06) "316" ended, with former castaways Dr. Jack Shephard, Kate Austen and Hugo "Hurley" Reyes disappearing from Ajira Flight 316 (destination - Guam) and reappearing on the Island. Following their harrowing reappearance, they are spotted by one their former castaways, who had remained on the island, Jin-Soo Kwon. The season's eighth episode, (5.08) "La Fleur", revealed that Jin; along with James "Sawyer" Ford ("Jim La Fleur"), Dr. Juliet Burke, Miles Straume, and Daniel Faraday; had ceased their time skipping...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (3.18) "D.O.C."

The treatment of "LOST" characters Jin and Sun Kwon has generated a great deal of emotion and some disappointment for the fans of the series. I can understand why. The series' portrayal of the South Korean couple - especially during the last three seasons - has been pretty shaky. But once in a while, viewers were able to see an outstanding episode that featured the Kwons. And one of them happened to be the Season Three episode, (3.18) "D.O.C.".

Back in the Season Two episode, (2.16) "The Whole Truth", Sun-Hwa Kwon discovered that she was pregnant. Although initially happy by the news, Sun found herself wondering over the identity of the unborn baby's father. At the time of "The Whole Truth", she had been on the island for two months. The episode's flashbacks revealed her discovery that husband Jin-Soo Kwon was sterile and she was secretly learning English from a former suitor named Jae Lee. Audiences eventually learned in the Season Three episode, (3.02) "The Glass Ballerina" of her affair with Jae. When fellow castaway Kate Austen informed Sun about the doomed fates of pregnant women on...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (4.01) "The Beginning of the End"

Looking back on six seasons of "LOST", it occurred to me that my opinion of the series' season premieres have been decidedly mixed. I have enjoyed at least two of them. I have found two of them mildly entertaining. And the last two have struck me as somewhat unmemorable.

The Season Four season premiere, (4.01) "The Beginning of the End", served as a follow-up to the superb Season Three finale, (3.22-3.23) "Through the Looking Glass". In that episode, the Oceanic 815 castaways had managed to contact a freighter called the Kahana that recently appeared offshore the island. Its first passenger, one Naomi Dorrit, was killed by castaway John Locke in an effort to prevent her from making that contact. His actions proved to be in vain, thanks to the determination of castaways' leader Jack Shephard and the efforts of Charlie Pace, who died after switching off a device that blocked the island's communication transmissions inside an old underwater station. The finale also featured the Others' failure to kidnap some of the female castaways for fertility tests. Their failure ended in...

No, this is not fan fiction. I was recently asked if Lost would find a whole new fan-base in light of a a heavily promoted re-run currently showing on G4. The question seemed easy enough. It's a simple yes or no answer, right? Well, not quite.
As with everything to do with Lost, there are no simple answers - and most answers simply lead to more questions anyway. I've been in the TV / Media industry long enough to know how cyclical these things are. The fact it's on G4 means it's being exposed to a new younger (mostly male) audience.

But Lost - by its nature - has a couple of very major roadblocks when it comes to finding new fans.

The first is a requirement for dedication. Proper, all-consuming, diligent dedication. Casual viewing will simply not suffice. The second is intelligence. I don't mean a high IQ. I mean the ability to think well beyond what's presented to us on the screen and connect (often invisible) dots and transcending the seemingly esoteric nature of the writing. Anyone just watching and not going above and beyond (be that online, reading books, researching etc) will very quickly become lost and I'd be...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (1.23-1.24) "Exodus"

If one was to ask me what was my favorite season finale of "LOST", I would be prone to answer Season Three's (3.22-3.23) "Through the Looking Glass". But my second choice - and a very close one at that - would have definitely been the Season One finale, (1.23-1.25) "Exodus".

Although I do not consider it to be my favorite "LOST" finale, I can honestly say that I found it to be the most emotional . . . at least for me. Many would say that the series finale, (1.17-1.18) "The End". Mind you, "The End" had its share of emotional moments. But there were many aspects of it that I found very irritating. I found some flaws in the script for "Exodus". But I felt those flaws were overshadowed by some great writing by screenwriters/producers Damon Lindehof and Carlton Cuse.

I might as well begin with what I consider to be the episode's flaws. The Season One finale featured flashbacks that revealed the castaways' experiences during their last hours in Sydney, Australia, before boarding Oceanic Flight 815. Mind you, I did not have any trouble with most of the flashbacks. Some of...

4. Why did Michael Dawson confess his murder of Ana-Lucia Cortez and accidental killing of Libby to his ten year-old son, Walt Lloyd, following their departure from the island?

5. Why did Tom Friendly claim that no one was able to leave the island, following the explosion of the Swan Station, despite the fact that he, Michael and Walt were able to do so?

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (1.17) ". . . In Translation"

Before I commence upon this article, I should reveal that the "LOST" Season One episode, (1.17) ". . . In Translation" is one of my all time favorites from the series. I will try to be as biased as possible regarding the episode, but do not expect me to succeed.

To understand ". . . In Translation", one has to watch the previous episode, (1.06) "The House of the Rising Sun". The flashbacks in that episode revealed the backstory of the marriage between Jin-Soo Kwon and Sun-Hwa Kwon (née Paik) before they had ended up stranded on the island via Oceanic Flight 815. Told from Sun's point of view, the flashbacks revealed that Jin had to take a job working for Mr. Paik, Sun's father, for her hand in marriage. The couple became increasingly estranged, as Jin began spending more time doing his father-in-law's bidding than with his wife. One night, after they are married, Jin returned home covered in someone else's blood. Fearing that her husband might be a dangerous killer, Sun secretly plotted to leave Jin (hence the secret English lessons); but changed her mind while on route to Los Angeles, via...

"THE WRONG PROMISE"

While going over the LOSTTV-FORUM website, I had noticed a thread that asked members how they would have ended "LOST". After reading several other sites and articles about the series, I posted my answer.

There was one thing that I wish Cuse and Lindelof had not added into the script for (6.17)"The End". I wish they had not allowed Kate to promise Claire that she would help raise Aaron after reaching civilization.

I realize that Kate was trying to assure Claire that everything would be all right, once the latter was reunited with Aaron. But in the end, her promise to help raise Aaron struck me as the wrong one to make. Why? It was not possible for her to do so.

When she had departed Los Angeles on the Ajira Flight 316 in (5.06) "316", Kate had broken the parole imposed upon her in (4.04) "Eggtown". Her ten-year parole. I would not be surprised if the moment she returned to civilization after the plane's departure from the Island, chances are Kate ended up in prison for breaking her parole. That would have left Carole Littleton to help daughter Claire raise Aaron.

"THE DECONSTRUCTION OF DR. JACK SHEPHARD"

I have a confession to make. I must be one of the few viewers of television’s "LOST" who does not dislike the series' lead character, Dr. Jack Shephard. Before anyone makes the assumption that he is a favorite character of mine, let me make one thing clear. He is not. But for some strange reason, I do not dislike Jack.

For the past three or four seasons, many "LOST" fans have ranted consistently against Jack’s faults. Mind you, he is not the only flawed character in the series. In fact, most of the major charactes seemed to possess some very serious flaws. Jack Shephard seemed to be one of very few characters that has drawn a considerable amount of ire from the fans. I do not know why he has been specifically targeted by these fans. But I cannot help but wonder if the combination of Jack’s role as the series' lead character and his flawed personality has set fans against him.

Now, someone might claim that my last remark sounds ridiculous. As I had earlier pointed out, most of the major characters are also seriously flawed or have committed some serious crimes. Extremely...

Josh Randall as Nathan in 'The Other 48 Days'
For some time now, we've just accepted that Nathan (season 2, episode 7 Tailie from 'The Other 48 Days') is Canadian and that Ana Lucia merely had 'the wrong guy'.
I'm asking the question... Who is Nathan really?
On several re-watches of the episode, I started to realize there was a lot more going on than I originally thought.

One thing that's important to remember is LOST's Canada deception!

It's well known that EVERY other reference to Canada or being Canadian on LOST (and there are many), is indicative of deception.

It stands to reason that Nathan may not actually be Canadian at all, or if he is (making him the only true Canadian in the entire series), then he was being deceptive in some other way.

The Canada deception was used quite effectively in Season 1 - so much so that when he first says that's where he's from, we became instantly suspicious.

This does not mean he wasn't on the plane. There is little evidence either way. But one question that comes to mind is, is he 'Widmore's victim'? (The man that is seen in the video that Ben shows Locke later on).

(2.07) "The Other 48 Hours" is the 31st episode of "LOST" that aired on November 16, 2005. This episode featured the Tail Section passengers of Oceanic Air Flight 815 and the story of their first forty-eight (48) days on the island. A controversy popped out from nowhere in this episode and it featured a fellow survivor named Nathan, whose death led to a barrage of criticism aimed at another character – Ana-Lucia Cortez, portrayed by Michelle Rodriguez.


"LOST": The Death of Nathan

The previous episode, (2.06) "Abandoned" ended with the kidnapping of one of the Tail Section survivors, stewardess Cindy Chandler (Kimberly Joseph) and Ana-Lucia’s accidental shooting of one of the regular Fuselage survivors, Shannon Rutherford (Maggie Grace). ”The Other 48 Days” unfolded the events experienced by the Tailies that led Ana-Lucia to pull the trigger in such haste. And one of those events included the death of a Canadian-born passenger named Nathan (Josh Randall) at the hands of the Others’ spy, Goodwin Stanhope (Brett Cullen), The ironic thing about Nathan’s death is that when this episode had first aired, many of the...

While looking back at some of the articles I have written about "LOST" and its characters, I discovered that I have written several articles that were either about the character, Kate Austen, or in which she featured heavily. One would think that she is such a compelling character. But I do not think so. I suspect that my problem with Kate was that I found her to be one of the most badly written characters on this show and in the history of television . . . and she was the female lead. And I find that disturbing. My past dislike of the character (which I eventually overcame) went up a notch after I had watched the Season 5 Kate-centric episode, (5.11) "Whatever Happened, Happened".


"LOST" - (5.11) "Whatever Happened, Happened" (Or . . . The Emergence of Saint Kate)

This episode of "LOST" - "Whatever Happened, Happened" was not well written. It really was. I felt as if I had watched the emergence of a character called "Saint Kate", instead of an interesting episode about the reasons behind a woman's choices. But there were no reasons given for Kate's sudden desire to save Ben's life. Instead, the episode had her in...

I was 7 when I realized what I was capable of. The dreariness of standing alone in that room was blaring down on me. I searched my mind for a way to get out of this. This was a timeout. It was so humiliating. In games timeouts were supposed to be a break, a chance to catch your breath and relax, but how was this a break? I had to stand against the wall alone and my legs were starting to feel rubbery. In my opinion this was cruel and unusual punishment, especially because every 5 seconds one of the kids in my classroom would "go to the bathroom". What they really were doing was peeking through the window of Mrs. Daniel's room and sticking their tongues out at me. Then they would take a moment to look at me like a bug under a magnifying glass and move on snickering as they walked. What did I do to deserve this? I threw a cicada on Mrs. Belleven's "brand new, sophisticated, white blouse" as she called it. But the thing was, I didn't really throw it. I had out a book about cicadas at recess ( I prefer to read than fall of the broken monkeybars ) and I was in the middle of learning about how they camoflauge themselves when I was so rudely interrupted by a high pitched screech.

"LOST" - MUSINGS ON SEASON FOUR AND THE FINALE

ABC’s megahit series, "LOST" is considered among the best television series on the air during this past decade. The magazine, "Entertainment Weekly" considers it to be the fifth best series in television history. I have to admit that it is one of the most original series I had ever seen. But after watching its Season Four finale – (4.12-4.13)"There’s No Place Like Home (Parts 2 and 3)" for the third time, I cannot help but wonder if the series’ reputation might be a little exaggerated.

To put it bluntly, ”"here’s No Place Like Home (Parts 2 and 3)" left me with mixed feelings. Mind you, it had its virtues. One of the best moments during that two hour broadcast was watching Yunjin Kim’s performance as the complex Korean wife who may or may not have witnessed the death of her husband, portrayed by the equally talented Daniel Dae Kim. Her performance was fantastic, whether she was expressing Sun Kwon’s horror and grief over witnessing her husband being blown up, while trying to escape a freighter that had been set up to explode. Whether he is dead or not, will be...

Ever since Oceanic Flight 815 survivor Sayid Jarrah tried to murder young Ben Linus in (5.10) "He's Our You", and fellow survivor Jack Shephard refused to operate on the 14 year-old to save his life in (5.11) "Whatever Happened, Happened", I have heard comments that compared Ben to Adolf Hitler. I have also heard comments that compared Ben’s younger self to a "young Hitler". Many people have claimed that it was Ben who had ordered the deaths of the Dharma Initiative members on December 19, 1992. However, I have my doubts.


"WHO ORDERED THE PURGE OF THE DHARMA INITIATIVE?"

According to the series, Ben has offered contradicting facts on whether he had ordered the Purge of the Dharma Initiative or not. In (3.23) “Through the Looking Glass”, he had claimed to Jack that he was responsible for the Purge:

"Not so long ago, Jack. I made a decision that took the lives of over forty people in a single day"

"LOST" - (5.08) "LaFleur" Review

Below is an article I had written about my opinion and observations of the latest episode of "LOST" - (5.08) "LaFleur". The entire episode is set in both 1974 and 1977.

Many fans of ”LOST” have claimed that its Season Five has been the series’ best since the first season. I have to be honest. I do not think I can agree with that sentiment. At least not for Season Five’s first five episodes. I have mixed feelings for it, just as I had for Seasons Two to Four. But there are elements of the fifth season that I have enjoyed so far. And many of those elements had a lot to do with the story arcs surrounding the island castaways left behind when the Oceanic Six departed the island at the end of Season Four.

”LaFleur”, the eighth episode of Season Five, picked up where (5.05) “This Place Is Death” left off – when John Locke turned the Frozen Donkey Wheel from ”(4.13) “There’s No Place Like Home, Part II” and vanished from the island and into the future. Following Locke’s departure, Sawyer, Juliet, Jin, Miles and Daniel are relieved to discover that they no longer have to...

I wrote this article after viewing the Season Two episode, (2.09) "What Kate Did" some three years ago:


"LOST": A Tale of Two Fathers

Back in Season Two, "LOST" aired an episode called (2.09) "What Kate Did". The episode revealed the crime that led castaway Kate Austen (Evangeline Lilly) to being a fugitive for three years - she had murdered her father, Wayne Jensen (James Horan), and used his death to collect insurance for her mother, Diane (Beth Broderick). The episode also revealed Kate's reason for her act of murder. She had just learned that Wayne - a man she had presumed to be her stepfather - was actually her father.

Kate had made it perfectly clear that she disliked Wayne Jensen. She held him responsible for her mother's break-up with Sam Austen, the man she had longed believed was her father. She certainly disliked the fact that he was an alcoholic who physically abused Diane. And she found his habit of occasionally leering at her disgusting and beneath contempt. Many believed that Kate had been a victim of sexual abuse. And that Wayne had been the perputrator. But "What Kate Did" hinted that Wayne...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (1.12) "Whatever the Case May Be"

I had never meant to write an article on (1.12) "Whatever the Case May Be", the Season One episode of ABC’s ”LOST”. Honestly. But after I recently re-watched the episode, I realized that I had to say or write something about it.

”Whatever the Case May Be” happened to be the second episode that featured Kate Austen as a main character. While frolicking in what looked like a spring, Kate and fellow castaway James “Sawyer” Ford came across another chunk of Oceanic Airlines 815’s fuselage section and several dead passengers. Kate also discovered a silver Halliburton case that she asked Sawyer to retrieve for her. The case belonged to the recently dead U.S. Marshal Edward Mars, who had been escorting Kate back to United States soil in order for her to face criminal charges. Being Kate, she decided to tell Sawyer that he could keep the case . . . before making several attempts to get her hands on it by theft. The case not only contained Marshal Mars’ firearms and some money, but also a sentimental object that meant very much to Kate.

To all who may find John Locke's character traits interesting and want to know more about his character, this might be a helpful thing to read.

Today in social studies I leaned about famous thinkers during the Renassaince Period of Enlightment, and believe it or not, there was one named John Locke.

The John Locke in the Renassaince believed that everyone should have basic natural rights, like freedom. He was a very religious guy and believed that we should have religious tolerance.

The John Locke in LOST is similar to this and probably named after him. We all know that in the 1st and 2nd season of LOST, he was a pretty calm and philosophal guy. In season 5, we see even more of this.

A lot of LOST is based upon religion. It is very likely of him to be some sort of great philosopher on the show, just like in real life.

p.s. I have been watching LOST on Netflix and I just finished Season 5 as of 5/13/11, so forgive me for not knowing what he is going to be like in Season 6. It's just a theory for anyone whose curious.

"LOST": "The Island Guru"

There have been countless number of character essays and theories posted by ”LOST” fans about Island Destiny Man – John Locke (Terry O’Quinn). Quite frankly, I have only read a small number of those articles. But recently, I have been watching some of the series’ episodes from Seasons One and Two. After viewing some of them, I have grown aware of a certain trait of Locke’s that I find annoying.

When John Locke’s back story was first introduced in the episode, (1.04) “Walkabout”, viewers discovered that he had been a wheelchair bound employee of a box company in Tustin, California. Viewers eventually discovered that Locke was the illegitimate son of the fifteen year-old Emily Locke and a con artist named Anthony Cooper. Locke spent most of his childhood and a great deal of his adult years longing to be a man of action and someone special. He spent those years honing his skills as a hunter and gathering a great deal of knowledge on so many subjects.

The eighth episode of "LOST"'s Season Four, (4.08) "Meet Kevin Johnson", featured the backstory of one of the original Flight 815 passengers, Michael Dawson. Back in Season Two, he had left the survivors' camp to search for his missing son, Walt, who had been kidnapped by a group of mysterious people called the Others. Desperate to get his son back, Michael left the Losties' camp and conducted his own search. Unfortunately, he ended up captured. The Others gave him a choice - either help them capture four of the castaways and find a way to release their captured leader, Ben Linus, or never see Walt again. Michael chose to cooperate.

In the end, Michael murdered one castaway - Ana-Lucia Cortez - to help Ben escape. He accidentally killed another - Libby. Then he led four other castaways - Jack Shephard (the leader), Sawyer aka James Ford, Kate Austen and Hurley Reyes - into a trap set by the Others. As the Others had promised, he finally got Walt back and left the island on a boat given to them. In Season Four, Michael's character returned to the series at the end of (4.07) "Ji Yeon". The following episode, "Meet Kevin Johnson" told in flashbacks of Michael's...

In the past, I have complained about the willingness of some "LOST" fans to make excuses or dismiss some of Kate Austen’s more serious mistakes and crimes. But after a debate on the "TELEVISION WITHOUT PITY" forum about the character of James “Sawyer” Ford, I now realize that Kate was not the only popular character that fans tend to defend. One other character has been defended just as much, or perhaps even more than Kate. And I am referring to one James “Sawyer” Ford.

I suppose it made sense that Sawyer’s profession happened to be a con artist. Several years following the deaths of his parents, he proved to be quite adept at deceiving and swindling a good number of people for his benefit. After surviving the crash of Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, it did not take long for the series to display Sawyer’s talent for deceiving his fellow castaways, several other inhabitants on the mysterious island, and more importantly, himself.

As a child, James had endured a traumatic tragedy after another confidence man had swindled money from his family. That tragedy soon followed when his father murdered his mother (who had an affair with the...

Hardcore Skater, honorary Jater, and lover of all things Sawyer - Give it up for Holly!
Congratulations Holly! You are the new Lost FOTM! How does it feel?
It feels awesome Lucy!

1. How long have you been watching Lost and what made you want to watch it and then continue to watch it?
I started watching Lost during the summer before Season 5. The thing that finally got me to watch it was the, in my opinion, epic 'You Found Me' promo! I saw the promo when I went to the movies one day, and I was just dying to watch Lost after that. The thing that kept me watching? The great characters, the intriguing storylines, the mystery!

2. Where does Lost rank on your list of favorite TV shows?
This is one thing I'm never good at - ranking my favorite shows! I can never quite decide what my #1 favorite show is, but I can tell you that Lost is most definitely in the Top 5, if not the Top 3!

3. What's you're favourite... and why?
[i]-season 3. I just think it was the best overall. I loved so many of the episodes, I loved the arcs in S3, I of course loved Sawyer & Kate ♥ and the ending was just amazing. Not only do they kill Charlie, which had me...

Lucy. Lucyfer. Jucy. Livelydebate. Livelylucy. Horny Jack lover.
Like you all know our lovely Lucy [or Jucy if you are 'one of us' xd] won August FOTM! Unfortunatelly it seems that previous FOTM winner disapeared or he didn't want to interview Lucy (well.. have to admit that Lucyfer is a bit scary..). Anyway Lucy had to get her price, so we decided that she would have some very special Interview. It took me a long time but here we are! There are two parts. Fist: Standard questions, which every FOTM is always asking about, and second: Special questions from almost all (the ones who respnded on my PM xd) previous FOTMs. I belive Jucy had a lot of fun answering some of the questions xD Too sexy Foxy art at the bottom and BAMF Jate banner were made by Nat [iLoveChair]!

WARNING! TOO MUCH 'JACK MOTHERFUNCKING SHEPHARD AKA TICK TICK BAMF I'M A LEGEND DA BOMB' MIGHT CAUSE HORNY ISSUES!

Part 1. Standard questions. (asked by marissa and sk91)

He does what's in his heart. He's a good man, maybe even a great one.
Six years ago today, the world of television was graced with the greatest, most complex character they have ever, and probably will ever come to know. On September 22, 2004 he literally fell from the sky and raised the bar to which I now judge all characters after him. Bow down to the man. He is our HERO. His name is JACK.

Whether you love him or hate him you can not deny the role he played in the show we have all come to love. Resented for being thought to be perfect, hated when he proved to be not. In the end he gave everything he had, even his life, in a sacrifice that saved everyone he ever loved or didn't.

His biggest faults were also his biggest strengths. His stubbornness, inability to let go, constant need to always do the right thing no matter the cost, and of course his desire to fix whatever was broken were ultimately the driving forces that rescued who needed to be rescued, and fulfilled the destinies of those who needed to be fulfilled.

9-Making only a 5-day gap before one of the most anticipated episode of all time,they should've left the hype build on.


8-Raising too many mysteries than they could handle.



7-The love triangle thing is just too silly to be true.



6-The submarine submerge CGI in "Follow the leader" is very horrible and unforgivable.



5-Getting drunkies to perform key roles


4-Not striking a balance between the importance of every character(Jack has had over 30 centric episodes,while Characters like Claire Had very few)



3-Allowing a Lost game this awful to be put on the streets to haunt Lost fanatics in their dreams.



2-The Epilogue is meaningless,useless and Worthless.

I`m definitely not one of those folks who saw some kind of commercial advertisement and were like "WOAH! I need to watch the whole thing ASAP!". It was totally different for me. On the other day, I saw a little part of the pilot episode which was airing on a polish tv. It was only the beginning, I guess... That moment when a plane was about to crash.. Or already crushed? Whatever. The point is, the only thought that came across my mind was something about "Another tragic series, really?" therefore...

First of, I'm sorry I'm like a month late with this interview. Second, congrats Eli! :)

1.Is Lost your favorite show? Why?
Definitely. By far. It’s just damn unique.The ideas,the quotes,it makes you think. No other show has affected me like that and I don’t think it ever will.

2. For you, why is Lost unique?
I'll repeat myself,but Lost makes you think .It's not like any other show,when you finish the episode you can actually spend a lot of time just thinking about it.It gives you questions about the most important things in an amazing way.

3. Now that Lost is over, what stage of grieve are you? And what are you doing to handle the end?
I think I’m not in denial anymore for the past few days and it does not feel good,I’m telling you.
I keep re-watching my favorite scenes over and over again and try to handle the thought that I won’t get any new episodes ever again. It’s quite depressing. :(

OK! So I'm posting this here because I wanted not only certain clubs' opinions, but the opinions of the Lost fans in general. As we know, Kate bounced back and forth between Jack and Sawyer throughout the series. At first I loathed her for it. Then looking back I thought, maybe she didn't feel like she was good enough for Jack and figured since Sawyer was similar to her in many ways (broken, tainted, shady past) she figured she was meant to be with someone like him, but never stopped loving or wanting Jack more [deep down]. I guess what I'm wondering is, if Sawyer hadn't jumped off the helicopter, would they have ended up together in the civilized world? I'd think yes, for a while - but it wouldn't have lasted. Their relationship never had stability. They were more passion than relationship. I think that if Skate did give it a go in the civilized world, Kate would have eventually bounced back to Jack - her love slave puppy dog (I love the guy but he really let her kick his heart around). Another thing I'm wondering about is, if Sawyer hadn't "sent Kate packing" after she went after him post Juliet's demise, would Skate have rekindled their love? After Sawyer's heartfelt monologue...

(since the previous winner didn't get back to me, I interviewed Nanda instead.)

1. To begin with, why and when did you get into Lost?

Well, I started very late (during s5-s6 hiatus). Originally I was going to start it when s3 was airing because I was in love with JJ Abrams (little did I know he had pretty much nothing to do with Lost). But a fake story made me angry with Lost, that it was responsible for JJ leaving Alias. So I started to hate the show even without watching it *hides*
Then I met Emily (Emm_xD) and the only thing she talked about was Lost, haha. Eventually that got to me and I started the best show ever.

2. Who is your absolute favourite character?

Juliet Head Bitch in Charge Burke. She is Juliet. And she is played by Elizabeth Mitchell. Don’t need to go farther.

He opened his eyes and immediately wished he hadn’t. The fierce yellow glare of the sun flooded his vision, stunning him. He blinked rapidly, his eyes quickly adjusting to the brightness. He squinted for a while at the sky, unable to think. Where was he?

His breath caught in his throat as he realized he wasn’t on the plane. He was lying on his back, outside, staring up at the sun. And his ears were ringing.

Without thinking, he sat up. A rush of blood to the head blurred his vision momentarily, but that wasn’t enough to block from his sight the carnage that he was surrounded by. He was on a beach, sitting right in the middle of a disaster scene.

There was fire and metal strewn throughout the sand. The ringing in his ears was gradually replaced with the chaotic sounds of people screaming, flames crackling, and a lone turbine roaring in its death throes –

NO.

The sound was unmistakable, but he couldn’t believe that he was hearing it. Hell, he couldn’t believe that he was sitting in the middle of a plane crash! He didn’t have time for irony, though. He knew, whether or not the turbine was the one he...

JOHN: Why?

JACK: Because I think you're a candidate.

I'm warning you,it's a SPOILER so if you don't wanna know what's gonna happen next,don't read it!


Kate and Claire renuite and she invites her to a concert that her newly met brother's son is performing at. Jack's running late but Claire is very excited to introduce Kate to her brother. Just as he is about to get there Claire goes into labour and they just miss each other by a few seconds. Charlie sees Claire leave. Kate helps Claire with the birth, Jack shows up just as Kate leaves to avoid the cops again, missing each other again. Remembering she forgot something she goes back to see Jack holding his nephew/her once son Aaron and all her memories suddenly flood back from SNBH. This is where the hospital scenes take place (I believe they where shot out of order to suit Elizabeth Mitchell's V schedule).

[Black screen with voiceover.]

CHANG: In a world of conflict and strife, there is but one fact we all can agree upon... everybody loves Hugo.

[Applause is heard as a picture of Hurley fills the screen.]

CHANG: Born to humble surroundings, Hugo Reyes has always been a beacon of light for all who cross his path.

[Photos of Hurley as a baby are shown.]

CHANG: Hugo's lifelong love affair with chicken led him to acquire and then expand the Mr. Cluck's chain into a worldwide phenomenon.

[Photos are shown of Mr. Cluck's stores in famous locations across the globe.]

CHANG: The exponential growth of Hugo's success was startling. But financial success wasn't the end. It was the beginning. Hugo and giving became synonymous.

[A video of Hurley shaking hands with volunteers in hard hats is played.]

CHANG: Parks, playgrounds, hospitals, the Mr. Cluck's House for Children... the philanthropy was unparalleled.

[Jack and Locke walk away. They arrive at a clearing. Locke sits down on a log. Jack remains standing, facing Locke.]

JACK: Look just like him.

LOCKE: Does it bother you?

JACK: No, what bothers me is I don't have any idea what the hell you are.

LOCKE: Sure you do.

[Jack kneels.]

JACK: Why John Locke?

LOCKE: Because he was stupid enough to believe that he'd been brought here for a reason. Because he pursued that belief until it got him killed. And because you were kind enough to bring his body back here in a nice wooden box.

I remember between seasons five and six, me and my older brother were making a lot of predictions. Right before the season premiere, I realized that I was going to be busy that night, and might not make it in time. My brother joked that he would watch it, then tell me a mix of real and fake spoilers to confuse and annoy me. One of his "spoilers" was that Sawyer would turn evil and join up with the smoke monster. We both laughed and waved that off. Now I look back on that moment and realize how startlingly close that prediction was. I wonder how accurate his other spontaneous predictions were...

1)How and when you started watching the show?

I watched the Pilot when it aired here, in the UK, and then bought the episodes that had aired in the US (I think up to episode 10) and watched them all in a night

2)Your favourite 1)character(and why)

Desmond. His story and his and Penny's romance has been great. His episodes are always epic.

2)season

Season 2 I think, it introduced us to DHARMA, more whispers, Desmond, The Swan and started to show a lot more of the Lost connections/seven degrees of separation thing,


3)quote

Either, Live Together, Die Alone or Penny's letter (if that counts)

4)episode

Gah, tough one. I think Through The Looking Glass, because of the "oh my god, they left The Island" shock.

5)friendship

Charlie & Hurley.

6)couple

Their dialogues in their break up scenes:

THE INCIDENT (Juliet & James)

JAMES: I need you to tell me where all this is coming from. I mean, one minute, you're leading the great sub escape, And now you're on board with blowing up the damn island? I got a right to know why you changed your mind.

JULIET: I changed my mind when I saw you look at her. Don't. don't.

JAMES: I don't care who I looked at. I'm with you.

JULIET: And you would stay with me forever if I let you, And that is why I will always love you.

JAMES:Youdon't--

JULIET: what we had, it was just for a little while. And just because we love each other, It doesn't mean that we're meant to be together.
I mean, maybe we were never supposed to be together.
So if Jack can make it that-- that none of you ever come here, then he should.

Interesting theory I found on lostpedia about Jacob's and the MIB conflict.


* Jacob and Esau were twins. In Genesis 25:23, God tells their mother Rebekah "Two nations are in your womb and two people from within you will be separated; one will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger." This verse gives clues to the rivalry betwen Jacob and MiB.
* The firstborn Esau by right was entitled to the family birthright but Jacob bartered for it when Esau was starving. Just as we see Jacob offer MiB some fish to eat in their conversation, the first conversation between Jacob and Esau found in Genesis finds Jacob cooking and offering Esau food.
* Jacob means "trickster" or "supplanter," which supports theories that neither character is all good or all bad.
* Rebekah loved Jacob more than Esau and helped him deceive his father. This could be MiB's motivation for his strong negative feelings about his mother. The deception required Jacob to appear to be Esau in order to receive his father Isaac's blessing, given by touch. Jacob physically touches those that he has selected. MiB is deceiving people by appearing to be...

Greetings!

In LA X we were introduced to two parallel time lines where in the first:flight 815 never crashes,they land in LA,and live happily ever after.
and in the second:They return to 2007 and there's some Jacob-MiB things going on.

Many people ultimately figured that Jughead created two unconnected timelines.

but I think that Jughead Cannot change the future at all(See prooflink)
Then My theory is that after Detonating Jughead it prevented 815 from crashing,thus preventing the survivors from detonating it in the first place,creating the other Timeline.

and,both timelines will continue repeating over and over again,until someone does anything about it.

Thanks for Reading!

Out of the 324 people on board Oceanic Flight 815,there are 71 initial survivors (as well as one dog) spread across the three sections of the plane crash. The opening season featured 14 regular speaking roles, making it the second largest cast in a currently airing American prime time television show behind Desperate Housewives. While a large cast makes Lost more expensive to produce, the writers benefit from more flexibility in story decisions. According to series executive producer Bryan Burk, "You can have more interactions between characters and create more diverse characters, more back stories, more love triangles."
The initial season had 14 major roles getting star billing. Naveen Andrews portrayed former Iraqi Republican Guard Sayid Jarrah. Emilie de Ravin played the pregnant Australian Claire Littleton. Matthew Fox acted as the troubled surgeon and protagonist Jack Shephard. Jorge Garcia portrayed Hugo "Hurley" Reyes, an unlucky lottery winner. Maggie Grace played Shannon Rutherford, a former dance teacher. Josh Holloway acted as con man James "Sawyer" Ford. Yunjin Kim played Sun-Hwa Kwon, the daughter of a powerful Korean businessman and mobster, with Daniel Dae Kim...

Season 1 (2004–2005)
Season 1 featured 25 episodes that aired on Wednesdays at 8:00 pm in the United States beginning September 22, 2004. A plane crash strands the surviving passengers of Oceanic Flight 815 on a seemingly deserted tropical island, forcing the group of strangers to work together to stay alive. Their survival is threatened by mysterious entities including polar bears, an unseen creature that roams the jungle, and the island's malevolent inhabitants known as the "Others". They encounter a Frenchwoman named Danielle Rousseau who was shipwrecked on the island over 16 years earlier and find a mysterious metal hatch buried in the ground. An attempt is made to leave the island on a raft.

Season 2 (2005–2006)
Season 2 featured 24 episodes that aired on Wednesdays at 9:00 pm in the United States and Canada beginning September 21, 2005. Most of the story, which continues 45 days after the crash, focuses on the growing conflict between the survivors and the Others, with the continued theme of the clash between faith and science being important in certain episodes.

1. When and how did you get into LOST?
I’m actually a newbie fan! It was my mom’s favorite show and she thought that I would like it too so just this past summer, we rented all the DVDs and finished 5 seasons in one month and I was officially hooked!

2. Your favorite(and why):

a) Season
Season 1 for sure because it’s how it all got started! I loved the sense of mystery and getting to know the characters.

b) Episode
“Greatest Hits” definitely. It’s so sweet and emotional and I cry every time I watch it.

c) Character
Charlie Pace. I just love everything about Charlie. Hence why I married him. ;) I'm pretty much convinced that he is my soul-mate. ♥ He's a sweet, cute, British, funny, caring, thoughtful, musician, hero and bloody god God. He was my favorite character since I first watched The Pilot. I just thought he was so funny and adorable. As the seasons went on I just loved him more and more. I cried my eyes out when he died and I threatened to stop watching LOST. I love the way he treated Claire and Aaron even when she wasn't very nice to...

Yes. We know how you feel Desmond.
Please note; this article has no season 6 spoilers beyond the 2-hour premier. I'm just compiling this from what has already been addressed in previous seasons, and what that means for storyline's in season 6.


How time travel works on Lost
Its been a long discussed theme that 'whatever happened, happened' meaning that the time travel on Lost is presented as something that cannot be changed no matter what you do to try and stop it. This is called link which is time travel without creating a link. However, with every non-linear equation there is always a variable, and as Daniel Faraday put it 'we are the variable' .


What the hydrogen bomb did
Daniel explained to Jack and Kate how a little pebble won't change the flow of a waterstream, but how a a big boulder will do the trick. By detonating the Jughead at the Swan site it could possibly change the course of history. The result of this would be never to have needed to push a button...

Thank you very much, everyone who has voted for me! You, guys are great.

1. First, How did you got into Lost?
The very first scene of Lost that I saw was the one where Sayid, Sawyer & co encounter the polar bear in S1 Pilot. That was when the questions started to come to my mind. “Who are these people?” “ Are they ever going to get off that island?”... Ever since watching that scene I got addicted to Lost. When I started watching Lost, season 3 already aired on ABC, so I purchased s2 and s3 DVD's. It was funny how I managed to watch 2 full seasons in about 3 days...xD

2. Favourite (and why):
a) season:
Season One is my most favorite! Because it introduces all the great characters of the show who are the main reason of my endless love for LOST! To me season1 is a pure perfection. =]
My second favorite is season 3.
b) episode:
It is almost impossible for me to pick just one favorite episode! My most favorite eps are "Man of science, Man of Faith", "Walkabout", "Confidence Man", "I do", "Through the Looking glass", "Exodus" and "The Incident". But if I still have to pick one...

"On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” 18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near." - Matthew 26:17-30



The end is nearing and the promotional photos for Lost beign to surface, this time with more meaning full cast photos. Yet how fitting it is that it was this painting that has been recreated to a very Lost look.

The following is strictly theory and speculation made off of these photos, there will be NO SPOILERS.


Lets begin with this photo. First notice that unlike the last supper there are 14 people around Locke instead of the 12 that surround Jesus.

Secondly notice that Sawyer and Kate are next to each other, this could be nothing of course. Yet Sun is now standing behind Jin which also suggests that they are back together.

[Sun and Claire on the beach.]

SUN: It's been 4 days.

CLAIRE: You know, that's not that long. They said it could take up to 2 weeks to find a current. I mean, Michael knew what he was doing. I doubt anything...

[Sun notices that her wedding ring is gone. She starts frantically looking around and speaking in Korean.]

CLAIRE: What? What?

[Sun continues looking for her ring and speaking Korean.]

CLAIRE: Sun, what's wrong?

SUN: My wedding ring, it's gone.

[FLASHBACK to Sun putting a hair pin in her hair. Her mother enters.]

MRS. PAIK: [Subtitle: You're not planning on wearing that, are you?]

SUN: [Subtitle: What's wrong with this?]

[Mrs. Paik picks up a pair of pumps and takes them away.]

SUN: [Subtitle: Hey -- I like those shoes!]

MRS. PAIK: [Subtitle: I like them, too, but you're not going to wear these. He might be shorter than you... ]

[The apparent leader of the group, which Jin is calling the Others, knocks out Sawyer and Jin. Sawyer, Jin and Michael are dragged to a dug-out prison and dumped in.]

MICHAEL: Where's my boy? Where's my boy? Hey, what'd you do with my boy? Do you hear me? Come back here.

[The previous hatch scene replays again with Desmond holding a gun to Locke's head and firing a shot that almost hits Kate.]

DESMOND: Do you want him to die? Put it down.

JACK: Is this what you were talking about, Locke? Is this your destiny? All roads lead here.

[FLASHBACK]

[Locke is at an anger management group therapy-type meeting.]

FRANCINE: My mother stole again from me this week. Now, I don't even keep money in my purse anymore. I've been hiding it. But when she wants a drink -- she stole 30 dollars. I know it may not seem like a lot of money to some of you, but it's a lot to me. And I want it back.

[Locke sort of chuckles.]

[Scene opens black with a blip sound; eye opens; green cursor on computer screen; unknown man enters numbers and presses 'execute' button. He goes through a morning routine and injects himself with something from an Rx bottle that has the numbers on the label. He hears an explosion, gets weapons from a vault, turns the lights down, looks through a scope, adjusts mirrors so he can see the hatch area. Camera pans up to Jack and Locke looking down.]

[COMMERCIAL BREAK]

[Hurley & Kate standing near the hatch.]

HURLEY: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. 4, 8, we're dead, 15, doomed and dead, 16, 23, 42...

KATE: Hurley, you okay?

HURLEY: Huh? Yeah, awesome. I just have to pee. [as Kate moves forward to peek into the hatch] Great idea, dude, go look into the burning death hole.

[Kate, Jack, and Locke peering into the hatch.]

KATE: What is it?

JACK: It doesn't matter what it is. We blew the door so we could get everyone inside this thing so we could be safe. That plan is not going to work. We'll never get everyone down in time.

[FLASHBACK]

[We see a boy arrange some tools on the ground near a car up on blocks. He opens the hood, and we see a man, David, approach carrying a duffel bag.]

DAVID: You got that thing running yet, buddy?

YOUNG HURLEY: Naw, but I got your tools all set.

DAVID: Let's see if we can get this thing started, okay?

YOUNG HURLEY: I thought we needed a new carburetor?

DAVID: Well, maybe we don't. Come on, slide behind the wheel. Let's fire this up.

[They get in and he hands the keys to a reluctant Hurley.]

DAVID: What's the matter? Go ahead.

[Hurley closes his eyes and silently prays as he puts the key in the ignition. He turns the key, but it doesn't start.]

YOUNG HURLEY: It's stupid. Without a new carburetor it's not going to work.

DAVID: Having hope is never stupid. You've got to believe good things will happen and then they will. You understand what I'm saying? [Hurley nods] In this world, son, you've got to make your own luck. Alright, come on.

[Inland, Jack leads a group of survivors: Desmond, Charlie, Kate, Sawyer, Claire, Sayid, Juliet, Jin and Hurley]

CHARLIE: Anyone want to venture a guess as to what Jack's going to be showing us out here in the middle of nowhere?

HURLEY: I dunno. Stuff. Probably secret stuff.

CHARLIE: Why does everything have to be such a secret? How about some openness for a change?

[Desmond pauses]

HURLEY: We kept the parachute lady secret.

CHARLIE: Ah, that's different.

CLAIRE: Different how?

CHARLIE: Well, because we weren't out there playing football with them...

[Charlie notices Desmond has paused]

CHARLIE: What?

DESMOND: Nothing.

CHARLIE: Wait. You had one of your flashes again, didn't you?

First, I would like to thank you all of you guys for voting for me... I really love this spot and the people who are a part of it ♥


1. First of all, when and how did you get into lost?
Well, when I was in my senior year in high school I have a few of my friends all crazy about this new tv show that had aired, even my mom was watching it.... well they talked so much about LOST that I started being curious about it.... But I didn't had the time because of the exams I had in the end of the year, then with holidays and with the start of college I let it go.... But in the end of my 1st semester in college and with the start of my 1st round of exams (here we have "holidays" to study for exams) I was so tired of studying all morning and afternoon and I needed smth to get my head out of exams and I remember that tv show all my friends talked about and I decided that it was a great time to give it a try.... I gave and I start watching from the begining here on the internet... and it was love at first sight xP lol

Congratulations Maria!
Thank you soo much all guys for voting for me!:D

1. Standart Question: When and how did you get into Lost?
Well, I first saw Lost on greek tv.(when S4! was on American tv) It was a S1 episode. I loved it so much! So I found all the epidodes that America tv has shown and started watching them! I watched 3,5 whole seasons in a week!! Best week of my life! Lol:D

2. What's special about Lost?
Hmm so many things! Well, I think that the characters are really special and unique. Everyone is different and lovable!
I also love the destiny/fate part of the show!

3. Your favourite (and why?):
Season:I think S3. Because things start getting more complicated and interesting(others, etc) and we see strong relationships between the characters.
Episode:That's so hard!I'm gonna say the “Looking through the glass”.The only episode I cried while watching it.. The Incident was amazing too!

[Shot of Boone's eye. He's watching Shannon read. Sayid brings Shannon a box, as Boone looks on.]

SAYID: I brought you a present for helping me with the translations. I didn't have a chance to get it gift-wrapped, so -- [Shannon opens the box which contains purple flowery shoes]. I found these in the wreckage and I have no use for them personally.

SHANNON: They are actually my size. Well, half a size off, but, I swear this place is actually making my feel swell.

SAYID: Another mysterious force of the island revealed.

[They continue talking (though we can't hear) as the shot switches to Boone watching them. Hurley approaches.]

HURLEY: [off camera] Yo, Boone. Question for you, dude.

BOONE: Yeah.

HURLEY: You and Locke are going out hunting boar everyday, right?

BOONE: What about it?

HURLEY: That's cool, except, how come you're not coming back with any? We haven't had fresh pork on a plate in about a week, dude.

[Shot of Kate picking fruit on a tree, then climbing down. She hears a noise and stops. She continues walking, hears the sound again and picks up rock and throws it.]

SAWYER: [off camera in the jungle, then stumbling into the clearing] Ow. Son of a bitch. What the hell are you doing?

KATE: What the hell are you doing?

[Shot of Claire's eye opening. We hear a baby crying and see Claire looking around. She sits up and she isn't pregnant. She hears the baby cry, gets up and walks into the jungle to find the baby. We see Locke sitting at a table with a lamp, tarot cards, a table runner, and crystals. He's dealing the cards [but we can't see what they are]. We hear the sound of a sword being unsheathed. There is wind and motion in the trees.]

CLAIRE: What's happening?

LOCKE: You know what's happening.

CLAIRE: But I don't understand. Why --?

LOCKE: He was your responsibility but you gave him away, Claire. Everyone pays the price now.

[Locke looks up and has one black eye and one white eye. We hear the baby crying and see Claire running through the jungle. She sees a crib and goes to it. It has a mobile with Oceanic airplanes hanging from it. There is shaking and a sound of the what the airplane might have sounded like when it was crashing. The planes on the mobile start spinning around, at least one is broken. There are a bunch of blankets in the crib. Claire starts digging through them and comes to a pool of blood. Her hands are all...
