LOST 1/11 2 hours: "Revelation" recap + new Eko-centric episode - Page 3

"Do you think his "friend" really pushed him away from the plane to save him or do you think it was greed. "


I was wondering why the friend pushed him away too? It didnt make sense to me, that he grabbed the priest/brother and pushed away Eko. Didnt Eko take a bullet, or was it his brother who got shot? Maybe he couldnt fly the plane so he needed the priest??

I didnt get the feeling the friend pushed him away to save him, i think that was just the result, at least concerning the plane crash. Maybe he was saved, from going bad (badder ) and became a priest after that incident.

I was wondering why Eko's pal pushed him out of the plane. There are a number of theories floating around. I think when Eko said he saved my life he just means it figuratively. Not that the guy actually thought he was saving Eko's life but that, in the end, that's what ended up happening. I think he did push Eko out of the plane simply for greed. Another theory I saw is that a drug runner might be wanting to torture someone who turned them into the military. We don't know that Eko's brother was actually shot dead, he may have just been wounded so Eko's pal wanted to be the one to finish him off...or whatever.

Yeah, no Sayid. But I didn't think he'd be in this episode with everything else going on. "Everyone" is talking about how they heard the drug runners say "sayid" and are thinking it's a connection but I doubt it. Sayid means master or sir in Arabic and would be a common word for drug runners to use to refer to their head guy. But on this show...who knows??

Great episode!! I just finished watching!!

I think the drug dealers will have something to do with Sayid somehow..Not saying he was a bad guy in it all but they are arabic os it's quite possible something coule come up..

I also don't think the guy was trying to save Eko's life..He was probably just doing it out of greed but it turns out he did save his life..

And the monster..What a trip!!

I guess I'm the only one that's disappointed that nothing is happening with Jack and Kate..I don't like Sawyer and Kate together..Bleh..

I don't think Michael is going crazy..I think someone is messing with him..The person typing who is supposed to be Walt hasn't given Michael any real reason to believe it's him..Just "Hey Dad!" Blah blah blah..I also read somewhere that the actor that plays Walt is having such a growth spurt that they're having a hard time using him much this season..Apparently it might compromise the timeline since they've supposedly only been on the island a couple of months! That will probably play into the storyline with how much Walt is around..

Can't wait until next week's episode!!

Did anyone see the last thing that "Walt" typed before Jack walked up? I thought it said "You need to..." when Michael asked him where he was.

Does anyone understand why the Arabs would have had herion in Nigeria? And needed to get it out? It didn't originate in Nigeria so why did it get their in the first place?

Next week's episode looks good, at least we don't have to wait 6 weeks!

I think all we saw of what "Walt" typed to Michael was "you need to com..."

Nigeria is a huge player in drug trafficking. Or used to be, not sure how much anymore.

The brother stood up and was yelling at the military to stop shooting(to try and save Eko). The brother was shot a few times in the chest. When Eko found him in the plane you could see 2 or 3 bullet holes in the clothes in the middle of his chest. IMO he died not long after getting shot, those bullets would have hit his lungs.

YUP.

okay I didn't realize the first guy (the one selling the drugs to Eko) was Arab. however wasn't the 2nd guy, the one Eko sent away Asian. Perhaps there is a connect to Sun's Dad who was into no-good deeds.

It has only been around 40-45days since they've been on the island. I could see the actor who plays walt as a problem, however it has also been so long since we've seen him would we notice unless he had a major change?

You are probably right. I didn't watch closely how many times or where he was shot. I just read that theory somewhere.

Good thought on a connection to Sun's father!

Supposedly it's been a MAJOR change..Like several years worth of growth..He's right at that age where boys typically shoot up if they're going to..I can't remember for the life of me but I think I read they may have to recast him eventually...

Nooooooo!

What is the attraction with "the others" to kids? They took the ones from the back section of the plane, they took Walt and they tried to take Claire before she had Aaron. Anybody know that that's about?

I really can't wait to hear what's going on with Michael "talking" to Walt on the computer. Weird.

Does anyone have a link to what Eko saw in the smoke? We didn't record last night.

I can't believe how much he had grown even from the first season. It was nuts.

Yes ... and isn't it interesting that the drug dealers, when they first came to Eko's village, were only interested in taking the children? Hmmmm ...

It can't be Walt on the computer. Look at the grammar! Not one kid on the planet types like that.

Re: Growth
I saw the kid who plays Walt on a recent episode of LAW & ORDER: SVU. He's sprouting up. What will they do about it? When Michael finds his son, I think the producers will have aged Walt to an adult. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Maybe Charlie has been using the drugs all along? Did you see him singing in the beginning with Jin. He's high. Maybe. I felt really bad for him when Claire kicked him out. He's done everything but nurse that baby -- and we all know if he was able to nurse, he would. Maybe next season, Charlie will work on trying to win Claire's heart? Or maybe the Charlie/Claire "breakup" was orchestrated behind the scenes by Dom and Evangeline? Perhaps they want their real-life relationship to play out on LOST? It's happened before on TV shows.

I think it's soooo weird that the plane Eko was supposed to be on crashed on that island...then later the plane he is on crashes on the same island. Creepy.

Does anyone have a guess as to how much time had passed between the Nigerian plane crash and Oceanic crash? The one guy's body was still pretty meaty.

This was explained earlier this year. The adults that were taken are "good people", it seems that the kids would automatically have that same quality.

When they first came to the village they didn't actually take the kids did they? I though they just separated them or something like that. They didn't try taking either Eko or his brother until after Eko shot the priest.

You'd think the producers would have thought of what to do with a child actor with a growth spurt already.lol

I felt bad for Charlie too. I don't think he was high when singing to Jin(though Jin looked pretty irritated at him,lol). He seemed to snap out of it once Eko came. We haven't seen him come down from his high yet. You'd think if he kept going back and getting the statues that he would take them straight to his hiding spot instead of carrying one around in his pack. He can't use the heroin until he breaks the statue. Maybe he has a 2nd stash of broken ones?

I think Eko just meant he actually saved his life, not that it was a noble gesture or anything, but that the other guy's actions resulted in Eko still being alive. I think what happened is that Eko basically took over his brother's life, which it seems was the one he always wanted, to be a priest. I'm mbetting that after the army stopped shooting and had him sitting there, that he says he's his brother and they let him go about his business, he is "born again", he gets a second chance to make it all right again.

Mr Eko's story is certainly a good one. Certainly not one i expected. I took it that he shot the priest to keep his brother from doing it. Whether his brother would have been shot if he didn't go through with it, or Eko just wanted to protect his brother from such a horrid act, or both. I wished his brother wouldn't have been so angry with him.
Eko and Charlie's life have much in common and not just heroin and being catholic. They both had brothers they tried to save which brought them down in the process. I first thought Eko (i took it that his brother was dead by the time he was dragged on the plane only the partner didn't know it, but Eko suspected) decided to take on the role of priest not just to save his butt from the army, but to make up to his brother for inadvertanly getting him killled. But, when Charlie asked him again if he was a priest, he seemed to answer like he finally made the decision to be one after he got his brother back.
The greedy partner may have saved his life (only by chance), but his brother saved his sole. The greedy partner was probably a terrible navigator.
Was Eko on the oceanic flight looking for his brother and the plane?

I don't think they were the actual "Drug dealers", just military/rebel thugs. Nigeria is a large country with something like 27 completey separate ethnic groups and has a history rife with civil war/unrest (at least that's what I remember about it from my African Hist class in college). I got the impression that the thugs were regularly coming into the village/other villages to take youngsters to prep them for war. Not unheard of in wartorn areas. And the old guy (who Eko shot to save his brother from having to do it) was in the unfortunate postition of speaking out against the thugs and the village was being taught what happens to people who don't listen to them.


ETA: KIRSTIE! I just saw your sig! A D.D. in your future? Congrats!

Rebecca, thanks for correcting me on the drug dealers comment. Your post makes a lot of sense.

Another question: all along, a big selling point for this series has been statements by the writers (producers?) that there would not be anything supernatural on the show. Did they give that up at this point? If not, how in the world do they plan to continue the black smoke "monster" or "security system" or whatever it is without it being something supernatural? I can't imagine a credible scientific explanation for Eko's encounter with the smoke in last night's episode.

Isn't it interesting that the only two people to have seen the "black smoke monster" and lived are Locke and Eko? They are two similar individuals. Both have a strong sense of self. They're leaders. They don't scare easily. They aren't afraid of the island or its mysteries. They have a spiritual side. Both made sacrifices on behalf of a family member. Do you think the reason they lived after seeing the monster is because of who they are?

I missed a few eps from last season..Who HAS been killed by the "monster"? I can't remember..
