Okay - so I'll be the first to say it - Claire! You can't leave that baby - he needs to nurse now more than ever if he has a fever and feels poorly and what if you get captured or killed? I don't see a supply of wet nurses or formula available (or even cow's milk for that matter). Arrrrrggggghhhhhh.

Interesting episode - but again - it drives me crazy how the characters never talk to each other.

I couldn't see - what was Sawyer reading now?

And does anyone think Henry Gale is both telling the truth and is an other? I think maybe his balloon really did crash, his wife really fid die, but he is infected and is thus an "other". Or maybe not. Who knows!

So the Others work for/are Dharma and were pretending to be Hillbillies? Okay. That's so much better than a tribe of comical fishermen/Hillbillies running around the island.

Henry Gale... Totally Dharma/Other. I can't believe Locke is falling so easily from Henry's manipulation. What a fool. I guess Locke is an easy mark... and he has a missing kidney to show for it.

What else?

Oh, when Eko put the blade to this throat, I thought he was going to commit suicide. I was totally on the edge of my seat. Cutting of the chin pubes must be some sort of forgiveness thing?

And finally an episode that answers some frickin' questions!!!

Cher I hid my face in my shirt LOL! I was so sure he was going to slit his own throat!

Oh, and I was very pleased to see the baby healthy without some stupid vaccine. As soon as they first uttered the word "vaccine", my husband shot a "please-don't-go-into-a-lecture-on-the-evils-of-vaxs" my way.

And Sun might be pregnant?! With the rate this show goes, she'll be pregnant for like 8 more seasons. Nooo!!!!

I know! DH said it before I did, "Doesn't that baby need the nummies?!"

A very freaky episode!

Henry Gale is up to no good. Don't trust him, Locke!

So why did they abandon the medical facility? Because they thought Claire might remember where it was and come back (which I guess she did). But Zeke left his beard and his theatrical glue in there (wonder if he buys that online? ). Or does he have a supply elsewhere.

What did Zeke say to Ethan about you were supposed to make the list and then take them? Was that it or was there more?

As someone said, finally some answers! (That, of course, lead to more questions!)

Just have to jump in and say that I love my dh! Aaron's crying, sick, etc, and Erik goes, "Just give that baby the boob already!!!" Oh, I swooned.... LOL

Ethan creeps me out, but it was interesting to see what a white coat did for him.... And how about finding their "costumes"??? That was creepy!

zeke must have either (A) more costumes stashed someplace else or (B) abandoned the shelter after meeting Jack, et al b/c they asked him about Ethan.

Gale is so totally an other

I like how they don't mention feeding Aaron at all. : how can she NOT be engorged after that whole long trip. If I was sitting in that room holding that bootie I'd be leaking everywhere LOL

What was up with the plane mobile in the crib? They knew that the plane was gonna crash on the island.

Oh man. Oh man. I just could've kicked her when she left the baby. First off, it was sick and not eating (she told Jack it wasn't eating). All I can think is maybe the mama bear instinct plus some sort of infection from being engorged b/c baby wasn't eating... But still leaving the baby to go with just one other person to where the Others reside??? Stupid. :

I wonder who "he" is and why he's in charge. Zeke seemed kind of scared about it. And I wonder why Russo's dd isn't like them. What, just b/c she wasn't their baby or something?

This episode reinforced AND made me question my theory (that they're dead and in purgatory). I mean, dead people don't need costumes but Eko "confessing" and asking for forgiveness from Henry Gale made me think that he knows that they're dead. Stupid writers playing with my mind!

I think Henry is definitely an Other. I mean, he could just be smart on his own thinking about playing them against each other to get out. But, he seems kind of weird. And Locke is an idiot. Everyone knows that little trick and for him to fall for it just proves that I was right to hate him. : I'm waaaay to invested in this show!

Oh, and I could've cried for Russo when she didn't find her dd there. And when she was so happy that she wasn't like the Others, it gave her some sanity.

I was so happy for Rousseau that she did hear something good about her dd. It justified her actions and proved that she is who she says she is.

I wonder about the plane mobile. Since the Dharma Initiative is doing all of these experiments, it could easily be that they are jamming the frequencies and distrupting technology, thus causing the crashes of the ship, plane & balloon? I'm not sure about Gale, though. Something is just not right about him. While he didn't admit anything to Eko, he didn't deny anthing either.

What's up with the "chin pubes" lol? DH & I both said "omigod" when he pulled the knife. Also, how come Eko doesn't have a first name and goes by Mr. Eko. Seems too distant--formal.

If I had been Claire, I would have strapped that babe on and gone. DIdn't Charlie make a sling for her? THat would have taken care of the bf'ing. Also, I wondered if Sun maybe gave Aaron something from her garden since she is so familiar with herbal remedies.

Oh, and what are the chances that there was an EPT on the plane and it survived the crash? A little far-fetched? Anyone notice that the dish detergent had a flip top (too recent)?

The dude who plays Ethan is Tom Cruise's cousin.

Wasn't Dorothy's uncle named Henry Gale? (in Wizard of Oz)
