As a sling WAHM, it kills me how everyone on that island lugs that baby around in arms all the time looking so helpless when there has got to be a scarf or something on that island. And yeah, whatever happened to Charlie's "Bjorn"?

Yeah, I wondered about there being a pregnancy test on the plane. I don't know about anyone else, but every time I've taken a pregnancy test that thing has gotten peed on as soon as I could get out of the drugstore and into a bathroom. I don't usually travel with them.

About the flip-top dishsoap, the show is set at the present and those flip-tops have been around for several years, haven't they?

just remember that this show is written by MEN! Breastfeeding, engorgement, slings, etc...... Not what they want the show to be about.

so many things to comment on.

Eko, do we know for sure that he was on that plane? i think this has been questioned before. I think there is a chance he was asking for Gale's forgiveness for killing the 2 others because Eko could be part of the Others and Gale is one of the head guys with Dharma.

Plane Mobile, that thing was just freaky. What was that silver sun for???? We know of 2 planes that crashed, their flight and the drug runner's plane. There were 3 planes on that mobile, where it the third plane that crashed?

Gale is an other, he is playing them against themselves to make them weaker while he makes his "list".lol

Sun being pg is not a shock/surprise. It was foreshadowed the episode after Sun and Jin were reunited, though not enough time has passed from that to her being able to take a pg test. Plus i"m not sure there was alot of nookie going on between Sun and Jin after he found out she spoke English. Sun is just hoping that Sawyer has a pg test. She is SOOOOOOOO pg though.

I was expecting Sun to whip up some herbal concoction for Aaron too.

You'd think Danielle would give more information and not be hiding out in the woods. I still think there's something off about her.

Zeke, was that him without his costume talking to Ethan(so creepy having him back that actor will never be able to play a "good" person in any future work,lol). Yes he told Ethan that he was supposed to make a list, not bring her back to their hideout. I really wonder who "he" is.

Why did they not explore the rest of that bunker.

Hurley & what's her name getting together?

Jack, sure Roseola is a very common virus............perhaps in civilized countries not on a island that nobody knows about. This seemed a little farfetched to me. At least he didn't give the baby antibiotics. Personally I was thinking the baby got poison ivy or something like that somehow.lol

I don't think they ever showed Claire using the sling, only Charlie. She seemed put off by it.

The dude who plays Ethan is Tom Cruise's cousin
Well that explains the creepy eyes.lol

What were they injecting Claire with, what sedative were they giving her to make her so loopy and high. Why were they doing it and why do they want that baby so bad to convince her to just give it to them.

Where *is* their plane? I know they burned it but seriously that much metal would not have melted. Even if it did there should be a pile of metal somewhere. I know they took pieces of it here and there but there's a large chunk of plane, engines, etc that have disappeared.

I figured Claire just felt that finding the medicine for Aaron was a bigger priority then nursing him right at that time. And she didn't want to take him because she knew they wanted to take him from her. I can understand it. I don't think they were gone that long...maybe a few hours.
post #25 of 110
What country is Eko from? Maybe that explains the "chin pube" cutting...a way to atone for the sin of killing someone, or a Sampson reference...wasn't that the myth of not cutting hair?

I think Claire wasn't gone long either. But damn woman sling that baby already!

Locke is an idiot! Gale was the name in the Wizard of Oz, she was Dorothy Gale. hhhmmm balloon, Gale.....

WTH is Sawyer going to get a pg test? Not commonly found on a airplane as far as I know.

oh so many questions....
post #26 of 110
Henry was trying to manipulate Locke and it worked. Eko clearly thinks Henry is an Other so that's why he apologized to him for killing the two Others the first night after the crash.

I don't understand why Eko chopped off that part of his beard unless he grew it as some sort of atonement for killing the two Others? I don't know if it was said where Eko comes from but I thought it was Nigeria. Not sure where I got that idea from but I may have read it somewhere.

I think that teenage girl who saved Claire is Alex. She had the same dark hair and features as Rousseau. Interesting how she is "good" after spending all those years with the Others.

The theatrical glue, wig etc. seem to indicate the Others are trying to make it appear as though they have been living in the wild. When they go out of their clean Dharma bunkers they dress in rags, glue on fake beards, and dirty themselves up. Why? Is this all some grand psychological experiement?

I think the Others moved from that Dharma bunker (which seemed to have a medical symbol in it btw) because they thought Claire would lead her group there. They didn't think that she would suppress her memories.

I thought Eko going to talk to that guy was like going to a confessional. Small room, stranger. Like he is really trying to be a good Catholic now, and also take on his brother's identity.
post #28 of 110
Why did they go to all the trouble of moving out of the bunker,if it was just to prevent Claire from finding them there? Why didn't they just kill her? They intended to before, and they certainly have the ability/ power to do so.

Maybe there really are less of the Others. We're assuming that there are a lot of them b/c of the fire lighting thing, but what if that was run on gas or something? They obviously have access to power. Or maybe it was left there for a reason. Don't be scared of us, we're fake. Or be scared, we can be anyone. Some kind of message or something.

I also think there may not be that many of the Others on the island but I believe they know how to get off and on the island. For example, take the small boat they used when they attacked Jin, Michael, Walt, and Sawyer on the open ocean. That was a modern boat. It sure wasn't a rickety wooden canoe! That boat was most likely powered by diesel. Where do they get diesel on a remote island? I know there's bio-diesel available but I doubt that's what they're using. They must have some diesel stored somewhere on the island but they must also have a way of getting more diesel, if needed. I find it hard to believe they don’t leave the island. With that boat and maybe other boats they may have a way of getting off the island and coming back with what they need to keep their charade going.

My two fav Lost sites. These both have really great info and you can connect things from current episodes to past episodes. On the second link if you go to the connections page its pretty interesting! Also check out the profiles
Thank goodness some folks have plenty of free time on their hands!

Ethan is so freaky- I can barely stand watching him!!!! *shudder*

I was about to die when Claire left her baby! I kept thinking, "Nooooo! He needs to nurse!!!!!"

Sawyer is tooo dang yummy. Hold me back LOL! I'd love to take those new glasses off him and give him a reason to leave 'em off for a while (did I just say that out loud?

Sorry - long post ahead.

Rosseau - I also think that the dark haired girl who saved Claire is Rosseau's Alex. Rosseau made a comment, "we were with them for a month." Did she mean the others. Were they now going to kill Claire because Rosseau had escaped after they let her live post - baby?

Eko - I think he confessed to Gale becaus he knows Gale is an Other. He may have even seen his face the night he was dragged into the forest. Interesting that he was confessing to two killings & he had two chin piggies to cut off & offer.

Gale - definitely an Other. He told Locke he heard his conversation because the walls were thin. When Sayid was beating the snot out of him the sounds were muffled during the shot outside the door. Gale is lying.

Locke - that was too easy of a hit for Gale. Locke should know better. Granted he has resented Jack's presumed decision maker role.

Claire - yeah, the boob thing bothered me too. Obviously none of the writers has EVER breastfed.

Others- they REALLY like children. They took the two from the tail, Alex, Walt & now trying for Aaron. Can they not have their own? Ethan kept talking about Claire getting sick if she went back to her group & how he hoped it wouldn't happen. Maybe the quarentine warinings in the hatch are meant to keep people IN. Didn't Desmond also inject himself with something? Could it also be 'vaccine'. Check this out - the Dharma symbol last night was the first one that had a medical symbol on it.

Sun - thank God somebody may be getting pregnant. I've always wondered how so many good looking people can be on a tropical island & not be looking for a little 'human comfort'. Just never seemed plausible that there weren't pregnancies. Maybe Sawyer has a HUGEEEEE stash of Trojans

Thanks for bearing with me!

You're right, the sounds were muffled during the torturing, I'd forgotten about that.

If the Others are scientists and not something else, maybe they don't want to include children in their "experiment". Since people die and all.

I think she means her group that were on the boat with her that crashed into the island.

Engorged breasts or no, I don't think I'd be strapping on my baby while I went to look for the sadistic people who kidnapped me and held me hostage.

I agree with that, but I think that she should've been better prepared. It was a very real possibility that she may not have come back. But she waltzed into the jungle with just one other woman and left her baby w/what seemed like no food while it was sick. But, I'm glad she didn't bring the baby with her, that's what I thought she would do at first and I was just about to yell at the TV.
