Ladies and trolls...Lost is BACK!!:D:D:D:D


So theories on the aussie/brit/mysterious-people-of-poosibly-british-descent hand fetishists??

My bet, we're getting a glimpse of island life in the good old days of Chuckles Widmore:eek: If that's the case, I gotta say that I never thought I'd see the day when Ben looked like the benevolent leader:eek:


Also fire arrows? What the heck? Are the others running that low on ammo? But hey, at least Frogurt got his fire:D:D

Haha they introduced that character just to do that.
I think the lady that gave Desmond the ring that was helping Ben figure out where the Island was is Faraday's mother.

Best part was when Frogurt was killed in a very painful, fiery way. I've hated him since the webisode and I hated him even more in this episode. I howled with laughter.

Did they look like soldiers to any one else? It happened so quick but they looked like they were military to me. Maybe that's where the army knife that Anna Lucia found came from.

You are talking about those guys right...when Locke appeared and saved them by knifing that guy.


Speaking of knives....who puts knives in the dishwasher blade up? lol.

An assassin of cause.

That what I was thinking to. Through I think it be a bit to easy if that is true. Through I love the way she seem be using old fashion techniques combine 1970s computer. Through I am disappointed they reveal her so soon, it just did not seem like lost them showing her face right then. Just hearing her voice would of been better, at least it would keep fans guesting.

Who here thinks it was SUN that sent those lawyers to Kate place, knowing Kate would go on the run. Me thinks she knows Ben is after a reunion, which leads to the next question where is Wigmore (sp?) getting is info from.

Review: Lost 5.2: "The Lie" (http://entil2001.com/series/lost/season5/lost5-2.html)

Overall, this episode makes it very clear that the new format will work just fine, and that the writers know what they're doing. They managed to incorporate some character exploration into this episode, despite the many twists and turns, and that helps to calm any fears presented by the premiere.

I think it was Ben because he thought she'd change her mind about going back to the island if somebody was on to her.

(it's spelled Widmore) I'm about 95% sure he's been on the island before, but he's still got the book from the crew of the Black Rock he bought at the auction house when Desmond visited him. (I think the episode was 'The Constant')

that makes a lot of sense. kate seemed to be the only one that wanted to keep this new life, so threatening the 'reason' why she wanted it would be the only way to get her to leave (for the island).

i enjoyed the episode(s). i think these writers are some of the best on television right now. :)

I'm also of the mind that it was Ben. Possibly in cahoots with Claire's unsuspecting mother, since there would have to be some kind of kin to sue like that, I would think.

I also think Widmore has been to the Island before. Perhaps he is responsible for moving it once?

Also, what's up with the redhead getting nosebleeds a la Desmond? Is she special too? And why do the Losties get to jump and not the Others?

All I really want at this point is a 3 episode arc that explains everything ever about Richard! LOL

I liked the throw-back to Desmond's island intro, with the record playing and going through the routine of the day. It was good to see more of the Dharma video guy.

I think when the record skipped it was an allusion to our guys (the main cast) time travelling to his time. I bet we'll see more of that time period, now, including what Faraday was doing in that tunnel that led to the wheel room.

I don't know if there has to be a relative in order to sue or not but I don't think it matters because I'm not even sure the lawyers were real lawyers, just some of Ben's people he used to trick Kate.

That's what I thought when Faraday used the record skipping metaphor.

I hope we see more Dr. Candle. That shot of him on the elevator was smart (using "god angle" and ascending) Now we know he's more important than just the orientation film guy.

this was such a good ep, i really like where the writers are going with this i.e. time travel, it will finally answer a lot of questions about a number of things, like the 4 toe statue, the black rock, Roussseu and her past, and much more. and btw, the rifle that the guy had was an M1 Garand, it was used during WW2 by the americans, maybe that gives us a clue as to when they are right now. Also, those men aren't Dharma, there jumpsuits didn't have any isignias and they didn'y have that tan color most jumpsuits had.

That's what I was thinking too. He's very crafty and creative when it comes to bringing about what he wants to happen.

The guy giving orders was named Jones. That's all I saw on any of the uniforms. I have no idea what year they were in at that point, I'll just wait till next Wednesday.

The thing I love about this show, the thing I have always looked for in any TV series, is continuity. For so long people moaned and complained about all the questions and too many mysteries and blah blah blah. But everything is part of the puzzle, and as the pieces come together, the show is really taking off. I love seeing old characters, or elements we haven't seen in a while (e.g. the Virgin Mary plane, the Hatch) because those of us who have watched the show from the start are rewarded the most!

So Ben and Jack have 70 hours to get the crew together... this is gonna be a photo finish!

i wonder how will they get sayid to come with. Ben and Jack might drug him if he throws a hissy fit about not wanting to go back to the island.

That old lady seems to hold a higher rank than ben...i think she's one of the original inhabitants of the island like richard and co.

people firing arrows -> hostiles
people with guns -> dharma

So... who else thinks the numbers are the start of some kind of pattern used in predicting the island time-shifts?

At first I thought Ben hired the "lawyers" to ask Kate for a maternity test so she'd think she had to go back to the island to keep him safe but Sun just happening to show up while she's trying to figure out where to go doesn't feel like a coincidence. Maybe she's doing it to make Kate think Ben is doing it so when Ben approaches her she'll kill him.

Now I think I've given up on trying to predict what's going on with this damn show.
