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

post #41 of 694
I watched last night, and the amount of commercials was infuriating. We recorded it, and watched it after it aired. I was fast forwarding through commercials every ten minutes...at least it seemed. I was disappointed that we did not learn, see, or get more, but that seems to be the way it goes.

When the plane crashed they didn't "release" the electromagnetic field. That was the day that Desmond followed Kelvin and saw that Kelvin had been working on Desmond's boat in an attempt to flee the island. They got into a fist-a-cuff and Kelvin fell on the rocks and cracked his head.

Next thing you saw was Desmond frantically entering the numbers with the alarm going off, and "system failure" repeating on the screen over and over again. Eventually the alarm stopped and the numbers went back to 108 for the new count down. He never used the magic key (the one that Kelvin showed him under ground to "make it all go away").

The shuddering earth quake on last nights episode was Desmond trying to get the system to accept the numbers. What ever this magnet is, I bet he caused some sort of a breech in it to cause the plane to get sucked out of the sky.

We do know that the electromagnetism still exists after that, which is evidence it wasn't "released", by the fact that Rose magically went into remission, and Locke could magically walk.

When the electromagnetism was "released" was last season when Desmond and Locke decided to see what happen if they didn't push the button. That's when Desmond realized what happened with the plane - he read a print out of all his input and found the "system failure" on the date the plane crashed (Sept 22, 04?). That's when he said "brotha, I think I crashed your plane", and escaped under ground to use his magic key that Kelvin left behind. We still don't know what happened. Did he use the key, or was what happened just the natural consequence for not pushing the button?

Michael and Walt were set free, remember? Michael requested the boat as a condition to infiltrating the Losties in order to free Benry so he could get Walt back. In the season finale him and Walt are seen leaving the dock in their crappy little boat with co-ordinates where they'll supposedly find rescue.

Benry! I was bummed to have to know his real name last night. Frankly, I think he'll always be Fenry to me

I completley agree there were too many commercials, and yes - there are always that many commercials. Fortunatley, we normally have to pause to get babes to bed, then we fast forward our DVR through commercials.

I was not nearly as impressed with last night show as I have been in the past, but here are my two cents worth regardless.

The beginning with muffins, and book club was very odd. It did seem like the "earth quake" was not unusual to any of them. As soon as it happened they all came out of thier houses looking up in the air - who looks up for an earthquake? Odd that we never saw the women who was "teaching" Walt and making him do all the testing, and negotiated with Michael. Maybe her "job" is testing, versus putting tooth picks in sandwiches.

I dont beleive this is where they were holding Walt, or even Michael for a short period of time. Remember, they were in the huts - which is where Jin, Sun and Syaid were at the end of last season - nobody was home.

Juliette was definatley chosen by "Ben" to work with Jack. And I hope he knows he is an experiment, but who knows with this show. WHat is up with the intercom?? The file she had on Jack was creepy, I love the show, but I do not like not knowing so many things.

The Hanso Foundation was the foundation that was funding the Dharma Initiative. remember there was even a commerical for the Hanso Foundation during the season 2 finale - something about employment opportunities. good tie in.

The cages chosen for each is very interesting, and i think the cuffs on Kate is to remind her of who is was before the crash - Zeek freaks me out. Cage guy was definaltey a plant.

I forgot all about the French chic - or is she part of all this. Seems strange the Others would just let her live - yet Ben aka Henry Gale would allow himself to be caugt in one of her traps - if they are so in control of the island. :

What do you think happened to Kate after her breakfast? That look on her face was like something incredibly awful happened to her between the time that she was eating with Benry (stealing that name) and the time she got to the cage. She looked defeated, and empty like she was about to breakdown. I immediately wondered if they raped her or something, but it seemed like a little too far for the story line to go.

yeah i doubt that.. they wouldnt do something like that on one of these shows i honestly think it was just the weirdness of the breakfast date and the 2 weeks shes facing.

I agree. I think they only had Kate handcuffed to psychologically torture her. If they have such a big Jack file, I'm sure they also have a Kate file.

The different ways they were held captive could be reflective of the characters' animalistic natures. Sawyer's captivity was clearly the most animal-like, and he has historically been the character who acts very much on instinct; Jack was sort of in the middle - his captivity was less animal-like but his behavior while in there was exactly like a caged animal. And Kate was treated almost in a way which seems to imply that there is hope for her to overcome whatever animal tendencies she has and to be a 'real lady'; however, whatever happened, she clearly showed her nature to be otherwise.

I wouldn't look up for an earth quake, but I would if I heard a jet-airbus flying at low altitude as it snaps in half.

WHat is up with the intercom??
If there is anything I have learned, it's that flash backs and "reality" seem related, either directly, or indirectly. Jack has issues with Daddy. We all know this - he saw him in the forest and followed him, which led him to the caves and his coffin. I think the intercom was just another extension of Jack not being cool with what went down with Daddy before he died. In the flash backs his dad was siding (at least that's probably how Jack took it) with his ex-wife, and repeatedly said to "let it go Jack".

Then in the aquarium, with the hallucinations and fatigue and dehydration (which Juliet attributed to the drugs they gave him) he ended up having more Daddy issues by hearing the "let it go" thing on the intercom. Last time he had Daddy issues was also when he was dehydrated, fatigued, and hungry. Remember they hadn't found fresh water, and he was spreading himself thin trying to save everyone.. voilà, he hallucinates his dad in the jungle! Incidentally enough his dad led him to fresh water. Do you think his dad might somehow get him out of this mess too?

I think part of Jacks character growth is coming to term with his father, who he is, what he did, and being Ok with that. After a giant issue of mistrust between the two of them (like drinking on the job and killing a patient, taking sides with his ex-wife) Daddy ends up redeeming himself on the island. Perhaps that's Jack's way of dealing, and getting one step closer to closure?

There were commercials all season long, and if you went to their website (made and owned by ABC), there are ways to crack into it and recieve easter eggs. Hubby and I always have our laptops handy so we can check it out when it comes on. There weren't any last night, which surprised us.

That's interesting, because one guy made a comment that "Ben wouldn't read the friggen thing in the bathroom", and then commented on all the science, numbers, and hocus pocus.

Carrie was scientific, was it?
post #56 of 694
I thought he meant science like sci-fi/horror genre of books and that they usually read more "deeper" books.

I love a good Lost discussion!

I liked the episode- very interesting, although it seems like a drop in the bucket of alllllll the different storylines I am anxious to know about- Sun's pregnancy, Sun, Jin, and Sayid to the rescue, what happens w/ Hurley going back to camp, etc

So what was the deal w/ sarah calling jack's dad- she was calling him to discuss Jack? And it seems like there is some big signifigance to jack knowing the man's name who sarah left him for- I was thinking it was his own dad, and how messed up that would be!

I was really confused between the blonde women- I thought Juliet was Penelope, and then she also looks like Sarah :

Strange how it seems like an abandoned zoo. With the contraptions in Sawy'ers cage it was clearly meant for experimentation. I think that all has something to do w/ the polar bear in the jungle. Totally think the guy in the cage across from sawyer was a plant- why else would they put them right near each other where they could plot and talk unless they wanted them to- they know sawyer is smart and would connive to get out.

I think pp is right, kate is distraught b/c they said the next 2 weeks will be very difficult and she's anticipating what might come, and miserable b/c of their captivity and being reminded that she's a criminal in handcuffs, and the weirdness of having to wear that dress and eat w/ henry gale.

I too thought the people didn't seem at all surprised by the plane crash or 'earthquake'- it seemed totally expected and planned- as soon as they saw it henry gale immediately gave orders to goodwin and ethan and asked for a 'list' right away. I think his capture was totally planned, too, so he could make contact with them and lead them to the others.

I wonder what kind of experimentation they are doing to do- it looks like they all got blood drawn. I was thinking their food was probably poisoned, too, and I'd be hesitant to eat it.

Oh where oh where is Chersolly? She always has the good spoilers.

Carrie is about a girl with telekinetic powers and her religious fanatic mother. Carrie is ostracized by her classmates, yadda, yadda, yadda, they dump pig blood on her, yadda, yadda, yadda, she takes revenge.

Telekinesis is the ability to influence or move things with your mind--"mind over matter" if you will.
post #60 of 694
I thought something happened to Kate, too. How would handcuffs mangle her wrists like that unless she'd been struggling?
