Lost Is Best

We are now at the halfway point in the season of the best freaking show on television, and all I have to say is HOLY CRAP!

Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t watched last night’s episode yet, my advice to you is to stop reading now, as I’m about to prattle on like a little school girl over this week’s episode’s shenanigans.

So, now the Losties are trapped in 1977? Holy shit!

This big question now is: How the Hell do they get back to their correct time? Or do they?

We know that Lock is back on the island, and alive with the rest of the survivors of our SECOND plane crash, flight 316.

What we DON’T know yet is, are the flight 316ers and Lock ALSO in 1977, or in our time? It would appear that they are ALSO stuck in the past, since last week we heard that a female and another (presumably Sun and Frank Lapidus) had taken a boat and rowed away from the crash.

If the Losties are now working for Dharma, can they work to stop the genocide that Ben will perpetrate on them in the coming years? Or are they doomed to repeat history?

And, if they ARE now stuck in the past, where does that leave the REST of the Losties that didn’t make the trek through time? People like Bernie, his wife, and the rest of the folkks that we always see in the background but we never meet?

I know I’m babbling, but dammit this show is too good NOT to babble and theorize about the next morning.

If you aren’t watching Lost, then you are, I’m sad to say, a pee-pee head.

So c’mon fellow devotees…. Theories please!

I want to know where Rose & Benard are.

I think the Losties who just got back to the island last night (from current time) don't know they are now in 1977.

I am hoping they can stop Ben from killing all those people.

I am LOST obsessed!

I believe if you were on the island, you were moved through time with the flashes. Maybe everyone else just doesn't have any markers to let them know when they are.

Did you cry with Locke? Man, what an actor.

Slyde said...

cuz: rose! there you go... i couldnt remember her name..

Shania: But if thats true, why havent our bunch ever run into the rest of the losties? just seems kinda strange..

Michelle said...

Frig!!! I freaking missed last nights episode and didn't DVR it. FRIG!!!

So tell me Slyde do you and your co-workers stand around the water cooler discussing last nights shows?? Tell me you do please!!! I just like that visual!!!

As far as LOST goes, it rocks!!! Thats all i got!!

Slyde said...

michele: have no fear, missy. You can go to ABC.COM and watch last nights episode.

and yes, i do stand around the water cooler and BS.. im such a stereotype... :(

I am still not over the final episode of the Bachelor. Might be a few weeks before I can summon the courage to turn the TV back on. If I see Jason Mesnick or Diana Pappas one more time, I think I am going to blow my brains out.

Slyde said...

bruce: i cant believe that with you being as cynical as you are about tv that you would actually watch the bachelor. Im a reality tv whore and even I wouldnt go there...

Kaylen said...

And if that baby born last night is Ben -as my son seems to believe- then that means Sawyer killed Ben's dad??!! I just can't wrap my brain around this tmie travelling mess cause once you travel back in time you ruin the time-space continuium and the stuff that happened before can no longer happen!!! This show is so confusing!!!
And so awesome!!!

Cuz said...

I'm thinking the baby born last night was Ethan maybe?

Slyde said...

kaylen: the baby born last night CANT be Ben. We have seen in season 3 how Ben was born. His mother died in childbirth, and then he and his father moved to the island to work with darhma.

cuz: now THATS a possibility... i hadnt thought of ethan..

I think there are going to be all kinds of "doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past" scenarios going on. Maybe Locke will lead the Others against the Dharma Initiative who are now under the de facto leadership of Sawyer. Replacing Ben and Horace in that battle.

I'd also like to see if it really only took 2 weeks for Juliet to fall in love with Sawyer. That happened awfully quickly.

And, of course, I say that they truly never get off the island as it is some kind of limbo area for these souls. Something like that. Has to be a reason why folks don't get to leave. Permanently anyway. Do you really think we've seen the end of Desmond? Or Walt?

It is beyond me how so many people can be WRAPT up in such a load of crap! Call me names .. .I don't give a shit.. LOST is STUPID... I don't mind a bit of 'simply can't be possible' programmes, but that one is just totally unbelievable.... and weird.
All line up and shoot me now.
Each to their own OF COURSE... I'm not calling you all STUDID ... HELL NO! I just don't get that programme.

Holly Hall said...

OMG so finnally got the episode watched.

OMG

i am going to do a post on the magic that is Sawyer. oh yes, oh yes.

well, as for the baby is well, the mom has curly hair. but um. hmm

well

um.

i am not sure if they are going to repeat the past but seriously if Ben does in someway experience some horrible pain in some horrible bowel involving way, then no, i won't be satisified.

seriously, did you see how he just up and killed locke? Mr. Hall saw it coming, I was blindsided.

stupid ben. that's twice now. he is a PSYCHO.

ok

:)

Tamara said...

I'm not watching the show, but can I please NOT be a pee-pee head, seeing I couldn't watch it even if i wanted to (we're like a gazillion seasons behind you in South Africa)?

2abes said...

You're all gonna be real disappointed when they reveal that the hatch is of alien descent and Scully and Mulder show up to investigate and find a Crystal Skull.

Slyde said...

earl: i think it took longer than 2 weeks..

chris h: waaaay off base. have you watched the show? :)

holly: Ben was supposedly brought to the island when he was 10 or so.... putting him at around 40 now, i'd say he should be showing up to the island any day now.

tamara: as long as you watch it as soon as you can, your pee-pee status will be recsinded..

abes: THAT will never happen (although i wouldnt mind seeing scully in a loincloth)

Cuz said...

Juliet would not even need two weeks to fall for Sawyer. Just look at him, He is absolutley gorgeous. I am im love with Sawyer and want to live with him FOREVER on Lost island (yes, I know it's JUST a tv character or a TV show)! LOL

Ookami Snow said...

What is this Lost show that you keep talking about. Funny thing about me, I haven't watched the show, but I have read many articles with theories about what is going on in the show.

Chris H said...

I watched part of the first series... then when it started getting weird I stopped.
