I am going to describe this episode in one word-HOLY S**T. What an awesome episode, I can not wait for next weeks finale, it looks awesome. I'm sad Ecko died, I guess the DUI-arrest curse hit again.

I was suprised that Eko died. I wonder if he had been sorry for what he had done and asked forgivness, would he have still been alive? Did the cloud form into his a copy of his brother to test him? What is the curse on the tail people that they all die? I think that is sloppy writing personally. Introduce new characters only to kill them off immediately. Just doesn't make sense to me.

I thought that Juliette was testing Jack with the flash cards. They want to see if he will stoop to murdering someone. I'll be interested in seeing what happens.
Since I believe that the next episode is the last one until Feburary, I'm predicting that the last scene will be with Ben on the operating table and then we hear the heart monitor go flat line. That is how this 7 episode mini arc will end, so as to keep us in suspense until the shows start again.

Wow! Didn't expect Eko to die. At least he died at peace with himself apparently. And we finally got to see "the monster" attack. Really, really freaky huh? So Eko told Locke that they're next huh? Eeek!

Will Jack cure or kill Ben? As much as he despises him, will his ethics prevent him from going to the point of killing him or has the island and his experiences changed him.

From the previews, next week looks to be interesting for Kate and Sawyer. I'm thinking that we'll get Kate flashbacks next week, since we've already had Sawyer's and Jack's. I can't wait.

And is next week the last one of the mini-arc until February or do we get one more after? I can't remember if it's supposed to be 6 or 7.

Wow, when "smokey" gets mad, watch out! Poor Eko, I really liked him and think there was more he could have done. That whole scene talking to his "brother" was sure creepy. Can smokey change shape? Was smokey also Hurley's "Dave"? Or Jack's dad? Or Kate's horse?

Who the heck is Eye-Patch Dude?

I also think Juliette was testing Jack. I know the actress who plays Juliette signed a contract for the entire season, but I'm not sure how many episodes Ben is signed for.

So So mad that Eko died, and who the hell were those two other people who went to the hatch with Locke? I could give a rat's ass about them, you can't just drop new people in without a decent introduction. I wonder how long it will be before Bernard bites it and all the tailies are dead.

It does seem to be an alarming trend that the Lost producers killed off everyone from the tailsection. So much for shifting focus to new characters as others get killed off! So sad to see Mr. Eko go! He was one of the most fascinating characters out there! I thought this seemed to come out of no where though, since it appeared that he had become more priestlike the last time we saw him, before the hatch imploded.

Smokey was Yemi all along! Does that mean it's appeared as Boone and Yemi to Locke as well? Are all the hallucinations "the monster?" And how about Locke seeing a bright light? I thought it was a bit clicheed to have the white guy see the light, while the black guy sees darkness, but what are you gonna do? Perhaps that's why Locke was surprised to see it in smoke form in Exodus.

It'll be interesting to see if Jack goes through with it. I doubt it, since the hypocratic oath states he must do no harm. I think if Juliet is really serious about it, she'll have to kill Ben herself. Ben's scheme was also interesting. Further proof that he's a very manipulating person. Nikki and Paulo seemed to be thoroughly unnecessary in going to the Pearl. The others could easily have figured out about the computer feeds. Locke saw the video before and he would have caught it. If they don't develop those two soon, I won't care about them. At least the tailies were all interesting (why did they kill them all???)

Overall, I give it ***

I felt bad for Ben. He seemes to be genuinely scared about the tumor he has.
I also think that Ben believes what he is doing is right. He said that he grew up on the island, so he doesn't really know any other life. He has been raised to be the way he is, IMO.

We'll see what Jack decides to do, I still can't decide if Juliet is good or not. It will be interesting to see how TBTB decide to work that out. I kind of hope Ben doesn't die though.


Ugh...why do they have to have a break until February??? WHY do my favorite shows like to do that? First Stargate...and now Lost? geez...As of next week I will have nothing to watch... :(

Heart stopping episode. Poor Eko. :( And "we're next?" OMG!

About black guy/black cloud, white guy/white light, I don't think the writers were thinking about that. I think that they wanted to show that Eko's past, his fearlessness before evil, because he looks upon it as an equal, made him react to the (what I suspect is a) hallucinogen, seeing it as a dark cloud. Whereas Locke, who is always being manipulated by people because he tends to see the good in folks, would have reacted to the (supposed, by me) hallucinogen in the naive, cliche, fundamentalist manner.

I'm glad the writers are finally bringing in other survivors. It fits with what Locke was saying; that Jack kept things to himself, but the new, improved leadership of the survivors will have a more open policy. The teacher that got blowed up commented to Hurley on how left out the other survivors felt way back in early season two, so it's consistent.

Locke would not have noticed the detail about there being other stations that they might have looked into because he was totally distracted by his feeling of helpless bitterness at discovering that he'd once again been played for the fool. I didn't notice the detail when he and Eko had first listened to the tapes, did you?

About Eye-Patch guy; well, now we know who the glass eye belongs to.... I wonder why it turned up in that chest in the otherwise cleaned out hatch the Tailies found?

As for the Jack/Julliette/Ben triangle, I don't know who to believe. But the teaser for next week makes it look like Jack has his own way of dealing with both of them.

Gawd, I love this show! :D

What was the point in developing the new "Tailie" characters if they kill all them off anyway!! Mr. Ecko was a great character he grew alot in a short time, too bad he died. Can't they kill some of the annoying characters for once? I wouldn't be surprised if they kill Bernard next.

I don't think they were thinking about the black guy/black cloud, white guy/white light either. What you're saying seems more logical.

My original thought was that Eko saw a black cloud because of the things he had done in the past, bad things by most people's standards, even if he did feel he had no choice. Locke on the other hand is an innocent for the most part, he has a certain naivete and tends to look at the world through rose colored glasses, even given the bad experiences he's had in life.

Also remember, the island healed Locke, so in his mind it was good. Eko has had nothing but bad experiences with the island so in his mind it's bad. So maybe people see what they expect to see.

Darn! I had accidently read on last week's Ask Aussiello (http://www.tvguide.com/News-Views/Columnists/Ask-Ausiello/default.aspx?columndate=25-Oct-2006) that someone would die in this episode, so that majorly spoiled it for me. I'm just glad it's Eko and not one of more important players. Before S3 began I had figured Eko, Sayid and Jin were probably among the next to die, so I can live with the death in this ep.

The episode itself wasn't that interesting. This wasn't the first Eko episode where the flashbacks just bored the heck out of me. What I didn't expect though was that Smokey would be the culprit, and also that TPTB would make it so obvious what Smokey was. I've been thinking Smokey would work that way; I just didn't expect that I was right. (When are we ever?)

But what I'm wondering now is how many Smokeys exist. We knew Smokey could be a good creature(?) or deadly violent. Maybe it's not because of its mood or the person it is checking out, but because there are several smoke entities. If Lost is really going for some more seasons, I guess that's one possibility to keep the stories interesting for a little while longer.

Nikki and Paolo - nuff said. I am surprised that I find the Others now much more appealing than them; at this moment I'd care more about Ben, Juliet or Pickett dying than those two. I hope N&P will be given something other to do than supply potty humor and pointing out the obvious. :mckay:

I would love to trust Juliet since I know Ben is great liar. :) I know Juliet will have her flashback soon (in the 7th ep), so there's hope that we'll finally know what to think of the whole situation. I'll give her two thirds of my trust; Ben will have the rest. (He was surprisingly straight forward in this episode, don't you think?)

Also, since TPTB love to use indicative names, I wondered this morning whether they are going for Jack:=Romeo. A tale of two cities and two families after all... Jack and Juliet seem to have a pretty good chemistry also, so I'm fine with that. Let's see what Ben will say to that, if he survives, that is.

Edit (doublepost):
I hope Charlie is going to finish Eko's church. That would finish that chapter of Eko's past and would also give Charlie some kind of arc in faith.

Its not their fault that the three main tailies were played by people who went on to be arrested for DUI.

This was a great ep, I don't see the point in the newbies who went with Locke, Desmond and Sayid, but I'm sure I read that *Spoilers regarding their futures on the show*they are only temporary, so maybe they are the next victims?

Jack killing Ben? I don't think so, in fact, If it wasnt for the scene at the funeral, I would be guessing that he had no tumor at all. The whole thing just has to be a test to see how far Jack will go in order to do the right thing in the long term, which the Others seem to believe they are doing.

Eko's death came as no big surprise seeing as some ******* spoiled it for me before I got to watch it :mad: (not on these forums) The cloud's attack was a bit of a puzzler, I'm dying to know what it is! :P

Overall, I give this a ***

Regarding this whole "Black Cloud, Black guy" thing - In the season 1 finale didn't they all see the smoke thing as black smoke when it tried to pull Locke into the ground?

Good to see the Monster back, anyway - it was one of my fav things about the first season.

I don't think they were thinking about the black guy/black cloud, white guy/white light either.Probably not... and that's kinda problematic, IMO. And where are all the black folk now?

Frankly, I didn't like this ep all that much. I understand they had to write off Eko somehow, but I thought they did it rather clunkily. Reminded me of Libby's death. (and this is coming from someone who didn't care for Eko all that much.)

btw, AAA was not arrested for DUI; he was arrested for driving without a licence, and the charges were subsequently dropped.

Those 2 new people continue to bug me. They seem really out of place, and their sudden appearance as if from the ether didn't help matters.

Last night left me feeling like the writers don't have much of a plan. Last year we had all that Tailies stuff and now they're all gone without having had much of an impact. And now we've got everyone split up so we don't see most of the cast during most of the episodes... yet they add Barbie & Ken.

Eh. At least Juliet keeps me entertained. Here's hoping she doesn't succumb to the Subordinated to Love Interest/Relationship Angst Curse.

You really should be mad about the alarming trend that the Lost producers are kill off everyone who gets a DUI arrest in real life.

And one more thing:
I found the CTV (Canada) Promo for next weeks' episode on YouTube, which, in my opinion, is a little more spoilery than the ABC Promo.

Apparently AAA (not even trying to spell that name) didn't have a DUI, just some traffic violation. I haven't been this upset since they killed Libby, which apparently they only did because Ana Lucia was so unpopular that no one would care if she died.

Wow, another fantastic episode really. While it sucks Eko died, I'm not too torn about it. They used him about as much as they could. Interesting offer Juliet made to Jack, maybe Ben is finally going to get what he deserves. And talk about an eerie ending.

Great episode, loved seeing the monster in action for the first time. I hope the producers will explain what the hell this thing is in this season, though I doubt they will.

I think that Juliet is just making a power play and can´t be trusted. Add to this the fact that she clearly has a prior relationship with Ben that seems to have gone sour and you´ve got her real reason for wanting Ben dead.

Eco dying was surprising but it worked really well, sets the tone for the next episode really well and it make the monster and the jungle something to be feared again.

Eye-Patch and his hatch might be interesting too...

Regardless of how Juliette's treated everybody, nothing measures up to how Ben has treated the Losties. I was hoping that Ben would have been pushed off the cliff by Sawyer. And did anybody catch that refernence, that Juliette looks strikingly like Jack's exwife?

well tecnically we dont know for sure bernard is the last tail survivor. theres still all the ones who were captured. as for Cerebrus (black cloud,im not sure thats its actually name, but it seems likely.) i cant imagine what happend to it. according to the door drawing, it malfuncetioned somehow. it seemed to me almost like it was judging ecko. it went from guarding the island to becoming a judge of its inhabitants. the cloud kind of reminded me of the bee swarms youd seen in cartoons that could make one giant shape. the cloud formed a fist around ecko.

on the other hand it would seem it was the actor's choice, which of course I respect for that changes everything
still, major disappointment at his loss :(

also, am I the only one to think that black smoke thingie feeds on people's fears ? in his 2 previous encounters with the smoke Eko wasn't afraid of it and it didn't harm him - but the 3rd time he clearly displayed fear & the smoke attacked :tealcanime49:



PS. as for Juliet asking Jack to kill Ben...remember when Juliet held Kate at gunpoint ? she'd have pulled the trigger without hesitation, which means Juliet is the really evil one Jack should beware of, more than Ben (assuming this isn't some kind of concerted plan between Juliet & Ben to test Jack :mckay: )

technically it was eckos choice to leave, it was said at the beginning he wanted it to be a temporary role, it was just a matter of finding a good time to kill him off.

2nd i think you have it backwards for the last confrontation between ecko and ceberus. i dont think killed him because he was scared, he was scared because he knew he was gonna die, ceberus looked angry

2) smoke can't "look angry", it just looms over its target - or rather it always looks angry (though "threatening" would be more appropriate)
for example the 1st time Eko faced it it looked even bigger & more threatening yet Eko wasn't afraid and it didn't harm him. It looked equally dangerous the 2nd time he saw it
Eko may have been afraid because of his previous encounter with his brother-impostor, but for all we know it's his fear (arising from his feelings of guilt ?) that prompted the smoke to attack

Locke sees the white light off camera in the 4th episode of season 1, Walkabout. Mr. Eko sees the "darkness" in the tenth episode of season 2, called The 23rd Psalm.

Some of the map has been dismissed by fans, such as those things about dragons, which on the original map is written in Latin I believe.

Speculation anyone?

Morbo
November 7th, 2006, 05:48 PM
from the latest podcast...

they said the first time eko and the monster came face to face and it flashed all the images in the cloud, it was reading him.
then it came back and knew what it wanted of eko - a confession.

and for all the people pissed at eko's death, it was planned - he was on a year long contract, just like michelle rodriguez. but they didn't want to kill everyone off in the last few eps of season 2, so they asked him to stay a bit into season 3 to finish up his story.
i guess adawale said he wanted to be on the show but didn't want to commit to a long long term part.

so there ya go people. not for drunk driving.
