The official Lost *Season 3* thread. (This thread WILL contain spoilers!) - Page 2

I know I saw Stephen King on the book when they were outside, but didn't it look like a different book from the one she was holding inside? Or was I just imagining that?

Did anyone else think the kid that helped Sawyer escape was a mole? I think he was planted there by the Others. They might have roughed him up after he and Sawyer were caught but I think in the end he goes back to one of those nice houses.
Yes, Kate's wrists were just from the handcuffs -- remember Henry Gale asked her to tighten them? I am assuming that somewhere between breakfast and the cage they dragged her or she fought or struggled, making the cuffs cut into her wrists.

And my first thought with that other kid was that he was one of them. It was too suspicious that he wouldn't talk to Sawyer at first, and then bolted and opened his cage after asking all those questions. Probably testing Sawyer. Maybe the same thing for Jack. It's funny that Kate was treated so differently -- given the luxe treatment at the outset. Actually, now that I think about it the (initial) treatment of all three was on a continuum -- Kate's was like a vacation, Sawyer was in a cage with a fish bit and some pellets and a slurp of water from a hose, and Jack was in the middle with a decent but not luxurious grilled cheese and some water. That says a lot about the characters, doesn't it?

Re: the songs, they were actually different songs. Juliet's was "Downtown" by Petula Clark; the one that Desmond played in the opener of Season 2 was "Make Your Own Kind of Music" by Mama Cass. They are very similar though.

Also, did any one catch the bit where Juliet said something about having been Dharma Initiative "leftovers" ? Actually Jack asked her, and then she said "That was a long time ago." Interesting.

We taped it (of course) and in the immortal words of Locke, "We're gonna need to watch that again."

I just went to the HansoAir site, and my guess is that it's a fan site. It's not as polished as an official site should be -- there are some grammatical mistakes and spelling errors in the copy. Also, the Google ads point to it being an individual fan, rather than ABC or anyone officially involved in Lost. JMTCW, but there ya go.

I also watched seasons one and two on dvd, and really couldn't believe all the commercials. Are there usually that many?

I agree that Juliet is doing the good cop bit of the gcop/bcop routine, but why does she look so familiar? Have we seen her before? I was interested in her file on Jack, how did they get all that info?

I also thought that the other caged guy was a plant, a little experience designed to show Sawyer that escape was futile, and the others definitely have the upper hand.

I thought we had too many Jack flashbacks, and not enough current stuff. Okay, haven't checked out any of the websites, but now I have to wait a whole week for the next commercial laden experience? I should have waited to get into Lost until after the whole 7 seasons were done .

Have we forgoten that Juliet was distraught over something at the openning of the show? Did we have a hint what that was about(other than being couped up on a tropical island with a bunch of wack jobs )

I also thought that Downtown was the same song that Desmond was listening to. But Juliette was upset when she was hearing the song. She looked like she was trying to hold it together and not cry.

She was on ER. She was the psych doctor that had a relationship with Carrie.

It was very anti-clamatic.
Thanks, I have been trying to figure out why Juliet looked so familiar.

That other guy in the cage was definitly a plant. Where else would he have come from? Some other plane crash in the middle of nowhere??? he was too clean to have been living in that cage for a long time.

I got the feeling from Juliette last night that she's been there for many many years and for some reason they can't leave, YET they're obviously involved with people from the outside world or wherelse would they get the informtion on Jack(and presumably the rest of the survivors), CD's, and the other modern conveniences they have. That was a very thick file they had on Jack.

Was there really a point in putting Kate in handcuffs? There were enough other guys around to stop her, and Henry seems to be strong enough he could have stopped her too. It seemed to me more of a thing to bring her spirits down. She escaped from jail in the plane crash and now they put her back in there.

The "earthquake" was the same thing(releasing the magnetic field) that caused the plane to crash when that guy who was with Desmond left.

If they had a file that thick on Jack, did they(Dharma) purposely release the magentic field to bring the plane down becuase they knew those people were on the plane? The people in the house seemed to react to the quake part as if it's happened many times before.

In the previews they seem surprised that "they" have a boat. It's Sayid, Jin and Sun right??? but also Sayid goes back to the survivors and says he thinks they've been captured. So they obviously make it back to shore before they're attacked on the boat. I do wonder though, do the Others know about Desmond since that's where they(the Survivors) got the boat from right? Maybe I"m confused.

Was Juliette part of the French chick's group? I'm going completely by the French name here. She said "it was a long time ago", 16 years is a very long time. Were they captured and then "treated" with something to become part of Dharma/Henry Gale's creepy group?

There were two sets of lines that were interesting. Sarah said to Jack, "It's not about who he is (meaning, her new man), it's about who you're not."

And Juliet said to Jack, "It's not about who we were; it's about who we are."

I think the similarity of those lines, and that they were both said to Jack, is no coincidence.

I KNOW!! We timed it -- every 7 minutes there was a commercial (apparently a 1 hour TV show is now only 42 minutes long...hummm : )

We have realllllly bad reception b/c we have rabbit ears, and only get a few channels, but it was hard to watch and figure out the details last night. For most of the show we thought that Julliet was Jack's ex wife! There must be some sort of connection there -- like when Jack's talking about his dad dying in Australia, and she says she's sorry, and he says "...yeah, I'll bet you are" -- why??? That totally made me think they knew eachother.

I wasn't as impressed as last season's opener, but it still makes the plot thicker, which is always good!
post #34 of 694
I thought the show was fantastic--worth the wait!

observations:

Jack is vulnerable to pretty blond ladies; Juliette was chosen to handle him on purpose.

The Other had a plan in place to deal with Losties before the plane crashed. I think the plane was crashed on purpose.

Stephen King is not your usual fare for book clubs; it must have been chosen so that the majority of us viewers would know the plot--if only we knew what novel it was.

The Others know a lot about psychological torture (and testing) and human and animal behaviour.

I wonder where they kept Michael? Were is Walt being kept?

Why did the Others pretend to be barbaric and primative in past episodes? How would that help their cause?

Sawyer was quite the gentleman when he gave Kate the fish biscuit. Yum!
post #35 of 694
speaking of the french lady (danielle) why doesnt she know that the others are livign so well...shes been on the island 16 years.. and why did she kill her crew..b/c they were infected but that whole infection hing went out the window when desmond discovered his old partner was lieing.... :
post #36 of 694
Great episode........it only thickened the plot which is one of the reasons I love LOST so much! I've watched LOST from the first episode and I'm still hooked. The dwellings that the Others lived in per the beginning of the show look nothing like the thatched hut type dwelllings where Michael and Walt were being held.

So many questions!!!

No Desmond was listening to a Mama Cass song... hang on... "Make Your Own Kind of Music"

I thought it was great! But I love not having everything explained and trying to figure it all out.

ITA with whoever said this episode rocked in the beginning but bot dull after that. That first scene rocked my world (is that sad? ) but the rest of it seriously could have moved faster. And the whole thing about Jack and his wife? Eh. And when he asked, "Is she happy?" - too cliche, IMO.

My husband has been following the ARG this summer so I know the basics of what went on with that, and I've been afraid that this season would get too Hanso-y and less Lost-y. (Technical terms, you know.) Hoping it stays a great show!

I agree. I'd hoped for more mysteries at least this episode. or maybe just more Desmond. :
