It's all crazy backwards. It looks like they are doing flashforwards now instead of flashbacks. From what we saw today this was before we see Jack at the end of season 3.  I really want to know what he meant by the Oceanic 6. Does that mean only 6 people make it out?  They wouldn't kill off that many people, would they? Or did the majority of people just end up staying?

Questions abound. And who the heck was the guy in the parachute? Do we know him  because I didn't recognize him.

1. we DON'T know the parachute man...he's new. he's the guy who's been on the sat phone.

2. YES...it's all flash-forwards now.  The producers said that at the halfway point of the series (which was the finale of season 3...an episode that had BOTH flash forwards AND flashbacks...) they were going to stop doing flashbacks and do flash forwards.

3. i missed the reference to the "oceanic 6."  though i do believe that some people do leave, some people do stay.  obviously, we know that jack, hurley, and kate left; we know that kate is happy to be back, but that jack is not and that hurley has been driven insane by it (i think, insane with guilt because he knows the other passengers are still on the island and still alive, but it's a secret they've agreed to keep...like when jack asked him point blank, and when he lied about knowing analucia or having any idea what happened to her). whoever was in the coffin at the end of season 3 came back, too. 

4. who do you guys think is in the coffin? there are soooo many people it could have been, if you consider that nobody came to the funeral, and the number of characters on the show who have no family or friends...locke, sawyer, ben...  someone i know suggested that maybe it was michael, while walt maybe stayed on the island.  my official guess is ben, because of how hateful kate's voice was when she said, "why would i want to go to THAT funeral?"

5. when kate says "he'll wonder where i am."  at the end of season 3...did she find a new guy, or is she with sawyer?

6. i think john locke clearly stays because he has always had a special connection to the island.  i think bernard and rose (the older couple with the black lady and the white man) are going to stay, because rose is another person who experienced ridiculous healing from the island (she had some inoperable, incurable disease which disappeared on the island).  i think sun is going to want to go, because she's pregnant and may die if she stays to try to deliver...and i think claire and the baby are going to leave (because desmond saw it happen in one of his visions).

my guess about the nature of the island is that it's kind of like a hub, a port, a window between alternate realities.  so if jack, kate, hurley, etc. get on one helicopter and fly home, they won't come back to the same reality, the same version of the world, as the people who get on the next helicopter.

The Oceanic 6 reference was mentioned while Hurley was being rescued. He kept shouting he was one of the Oceanic 6.  Later the detective asks him if he was trying to play off his celebrity by using that line (something like that).

Ben has also always been my guess for the coffin. If it was Juliet her sister would have at least gone. I don't think Locke would ever leave the island, although if he did it still remains to be seen how many people would show up. Right now Ben is the only "bad guy" that would actually have no one show up.

I think it's too early to try and predict how it's going to play out. The flashforward from the end of season 3 showed Kate being normal, not (yet) being driven by the need to go back. Where as we already saw Hurley broken down, and later we see Jack obssesed. 

Oh my other question is, who is the "lawyer" from Oceanic? He looks very familiar, my friend who watched it with me agreed, but neither of us could figure out where from. Have we seen him before?

As for Bernard and Rose I always had the feeling she would leave. she was cured, but because of the others, the monster and everything else it was hard for her to settle down. (by the way we still have to find out who the original others are)

"Jacob" (who, you remember, is just a long-haired doppleganger for John Locke) was not actually seen on this episode, however, Hurley did see his shack while he was stumbling, lost, through the jungle.  Hurley saw the guy inside and it scared him, so he convinced himself it wasn't really there, only to look up and be found by the actual John Locke.

Random thoughts in no particular order...

1) The guy who visits Hurley in the hospital is listed (IMDB for teh win!) as Lance Reddick, a "That Guy" who's done The Wire, Oz, some Law and Order, etc. etc.

2) Interesting to see Jack growing some spine -- he did actually pull the trigger on Locke, which he traditionally hadn't been able to do.

3) Also interesting to see the transition from Jack being haunted by the need to go back as of the Season 3 finale, to the Season 4 premiere where he's the one trying to convince Hurley there's no need/point to doing so. Though in terms of timeline (thank you, Jack's beard), clearly S4 is meant to be a shorter flash-forward than S3 finale. The other thing this clicks in my brain is that clearly the alliances in the present aren't done shifting, as Hurley was in Locke's crew at the end of S4-Ep1.

4) I forget the exact line, but there was at least one line where Hurley clearly implied some of the Oceanic's stayed behind. So they're not necessarily all dead.

5) Why wouldn't Hurley at least acknowledge that he met Ana Lucia? TOTALLY UNFOUNDED THEORY -- Michael may be one of the ones who came back, but there's some reason they don't want to open the can of worms re: Ana Lucia's murder, so they have to pretend they don't know her to avoid the questions.

6) Re: the coffin... the one other bad guy I could think of (beyond Ben) that no one else would go see would be Michael, but that would of course require Walt being out of the picture. I'd say Locke, being something of a loner, could take a turn that direction, but I'd be hard-pressed to think he'd ever leave the island.

Nah, they have confirmed that they will be doing some of both (flash-backs and -forwards) all throughout this season.

I don't think he lied to get out of jail time, my guess would be the survivors are trying to protect the island. If their story got out, everyone would flock to the island to see its powers.

Speaking of Charlie, what's with Charlie appearing to Hurley? Is it insanity, or something like what happened on the Island with Jacks dad, and the other times?

I don't think we know yet. I'm assuming something similar happens to Jack that causes him to want to go back. Charlie says "they need you". The apperance of Jack's dad and Locke & Sawyer's father I always credited to the island. Since Hurley was away from the island, this could be a hallucination caused by a guilty conscience, But then you have to ask, why could the other patient see Charlie also? Was he crazy (well, yes) or was Charlie a ghost?

Yeah they showed last week's episode as well

Patient: I'd watch out if I were you
Hurley: Why?
Patient: That guys keeps staring at you
Hurley: What guy?
Patient: *points* (we do not see him pointing at charlie, just pointing.)

The question we're stuck asking though, is did the patient actually see Charlie or was that just insane rambling?

Well that has to be the strangest episode in the history of Lost, and that's saying a lot.

A blackmailing ghostbuster

A polar bear in the middle of Tanzania with a Dharma collar on it.

This entire team of seemingly unrelated people.

The crashed plane that ISN'T Oceanic 815

I think the biggest shock was the polar bear. I don't know exactly what this means, but it seems Dharma may be older then previously thought. (the logo on the collar was from the Hydra station). This also suggests that perhaps the island and it's powers may have had a bigger influence.

That episode threw so many curveballs into the mix I can't even come up with a guess as to what is going on now.  And I really wish they would just shoot Ben. Information or no information I'm sick of him, I wish someone would just shoot him.

Well they mentioned that last season, that the people outside of the island found the crash wreckage. I can't remember who brought it up, but it was mentioned before? It might have been that girl who got the knife in the back.

DoctorZ is right, Naomi mentioned it last season. But there is an enourmous difference between "we found your plane, there were no survivors" and
"Someone reconstructed the crash of your plane at the bottom of the ocean, bodies and all"

Although the island is a little weird so when they entered the islands force field or whatever a copy of them could have been made.

It could be an alternate reality also, far too early to speculate on that. But, there is definately something wrong with the plane they found. The other pilot insisted that wasn't the pilot from Oceanic 815.  Combined with that man who Naomi was working for, I'm leaning more to a cover up of some sort to stop people from finding the island. (although the location they show for the 'plane' made no sense)


Also as a teaser for next week, another person from the Oceanic 6 will be revealed.

I think he means, The Others. Not the other survivors, because The Others don't wanna be rescued.

That's true, just on numbers, there should still be some Others left. The raiding party that attacked the beach was 10 guys, so presumably there are more than that. Most specifically, Richard was never dispensed with one way or the other (as far as I remember), though the actor (Nestor Carbonell) went off to do Cane on CBS.

They're not important but it would have taken two lines from Ben, or a shot of them settling in their new location.  Yes they aren't important but you can't forget about them after three seasons of kidnapping, death and torture.  Unless of course their new location has some sort of importance. That's the problem with this show, even the smallest details may mean something important later.

And off the island. Which means he may be the one who died at the end of Season 3. We have to remember that we don't know how far into the future the end of season three jumps. So we have Hurley, Sayid, Kate and Jack as the Oceanic 6 now. We still have two more. (Ben doesn't count because he wasn't on the flight)

I wonder if the bracelet Naomi (and the girl from Berlin) wear had any meaning to Sayid before the island, or if it's a result of something that happens later.

To Ben's own admission, he's using Sayid to keep others safe, other then that there is no way Sayid would take orders from Ben.

It's a little late, but what about when Jack said, "Why don't you go get my Dad down here? If I'm drunker then him, I'll leave." Is that just because he was drunk, or is his dad somehow alive after the Island?

Oh yeah, I forgot about that comment.  He might have been drunk and it was a comment made more to through the audience off? Or maybe Jack is seeing his father the same way Hurley saw Charlie?  I wouldn't suspect his father is alive again. He didn't die on the island, I don't see why his father would be brought back to life. If anything that might make it stranger because in the real world they know he is already dead. So if he came back alive that would seriously raise questions and they'd want to find out why a dead man is alive. And then the whole world would go searching for the island.

Well did you guys watch the Lost Missing pieces on the official site? In the final one they showed it was right before Jack wakes up in the first episode and his father is seen. He tells Vincent to "Go wake up my son. He has work to do." And then he says "So it begins."

Jack's father has already appeared to him before, which could be the black smoke monster or a a ghost or some such but why would he already be on the island when they crash and why would he know that his son has "work to do". I think that maybe he is alive and is far more involved in the events on the island than we thought.

That would bother me for some reason. Seeing ghosts is one thing. Having people (appear?) on the island is another (Sawyer / John's dad). But bringing someone who was dead back to life, who died off the island.  That just seems.. I don't know. I mean they would have done an autopsy to confirm cause of death. This isn't some grey area where we don't know if he died or not like happens on the island.  Although with the Polar Bears in the desert the island might have more influence over the rest of the world then we thought.

The other problem I see is that Claire and Jack would probably find out they are siblings.  That story always struck me as one of those things where they are connected before the island, but will never know it.

Claire died, so they pretended Erin was Kates child so that they could take care of it.

It's actually Aaron  :P

Claire died

That's specualtion, Hurley and Jack have said they need to go back to the island. Ben says he is keeping their friends safe (which we presume is why Sayid is helping him). What happened to the others is unknown, but I find it unlikely they kill off 40+ people.

One scenario I do see happening is for some reason or other they can't take everyone. To get Aaron off the island Claire gives the baby to Kate.

Maybe Aaron is with Kate when the oppertunity to go home arises and only she and the other Oceanic 6 get home.

It's too early to say but I wouldn't blame Kate just yet. She might be the reason Aaron is off the island.

On the flip side Jack seemed resentful of Aaron. At first this leads us all to believe it's Sawyers baby. But since we know it's Claires we have to ask why. It could be that Kate did steal Aaron maybe to lighten her sentence. Maybe Claire does die. Or it might be because the Oceanic 6 somehow abandoned the survivors and Aaron is just a bitter reminder to Jack about what they did.

I doubt Kate stole Aaron -- otherwise, I can't see Jack being willing to come to her defense in the trial -- but I don't see any scenario where Claire would voluntarily leave her baby with someone else, which almost draws the inevitable conclusion that she dies at some point. Maybe the writers will come up with something, but I'd be hard-pressed to figure what that is.

The other wrinkle in all of that is we don't know in the flash-forward if it was ever revealed that Jack's dad fathered Claire. Though that would seem to make him more likely to be willing to see a child that turns out to be a blood relative (even if an illegitimate one).

But if Claire died why would Jack be so resentful of Aaron? 

In my mind I can picture something like this, Claire is sick and Kate is looking after him.  She and the other Oceanic 6 are down by the beach or something a Helicopter comes says they came to rescue them but they have to leave now, a storm is coming. Something anywhere along there.

Or maybe for some reason or other the people on the freighter demand to bring the Oceanic 6. Claire in a desperate attempt to keep Aaron safe gives the baby to Kate. (maybe things get really dangerous on the island). Of course I don't see Jack agreeing to just leave like that, obviously I'm missing things, but these are general ideas I'm playing with.

I don't think Jack resents Aaron per se. I suspect it's more of a guilt thing... maybe Claire got hurt, he was the only doctor around, and failed to save her. That would make Aaron a constant reminder of his failure... which, we know by now he takes this stuff personally. ;)

That was one of the best episodes of Lost... well, ever. I swear, if the entire show was just Desmond it would still be amazing.

It was ok. I'm not big on Juliet, so when the flashbacks are all about her i'm less then excited.

Micheal is probably the spy in exchange for his son's safety back the mainland. I think they were all pretending not to know each other. It was sad that Jin died and never saw his baby.

So now we know Michael's story. I feel sorry for the guy. He's stuck right in the middle of this conflict, without even the power to end his own life, completely confused and wanting nothing more than to be with his son. Sayid's reaction was perfect. I expected them to take the stupid approach of making some kind of alliance with him but instead they take him straight to the captain.

Also, I wonder who the shooter was at the end, or more importantly, which side they're from, the freighter or the Others. I'm guessing it was one of the Others which is why they didn't kill Alex. It was probably Ben's plan to kill off Carl and Rousseau (sp?) so his daughter would be under his control again. Sucks that two good characters got killed off though. Also, and I'm just throwing this out here, what if the shooter is Mikhail?

More likely of those two, though, would be Charlie. Mikhail got blown up, remember? Not even HE can survive a grenade in his own hand.

Personally, I think it's Charlotte and... the other guy. The schizo.

I'm of the opinion that Mikhail is still alive. The guy just plain doesn't die.

Mikhail's got to be alive... He can't die at all.

And 16 years on the island to die like that, disappointing.

At least he died off the island, if indeed, he did die. Cause technically, he died in the ocean.

You're assuming she did in fact die. We've seen a variety of people go to the brink of death and come back. For all we know she could be stunned.

Although later on in the season, they discovered their bones.. So i would have to say that Rousseau is dead.
