Ooh, what a great episode! So many things to ponder.
Re: the "monster" - Did anyone see Matthew Fox on Ellen
the other day? Ellen asked about the monster and Matthew said they are staying away from the word "monster". Then when Sayid and Danielle heard the growl/groan/roar (whatever it was) and she said, "If we're lucky, it's just one of the bears." Sayid asked about the monster and Danielle replied, "There's no such thing as monsters."
So WHAT is it if it's not a monster? Hmmm...
Re: Who struck Sayid on the head when he was zoning in on the source of the transmission. Well, Danielle kept asking Sayid where Alex was. Then at the end we learn that Alex is her son. She never said she killed Alex. If Robert (her dead husband) fathered her child while there on the island, Alex would be at least 16 yrs old by now. Why would Danielle strike Sayid over the head like that and then never
mention it to him while she held him captive? You think it would have come up. Perhaps Alex did not want Sayid to find his mother. Maybe he thought Sayid was one of the "voices" and was trying to protect his mother.
A different theory on Alex and the "monster":
Okay, Danielle said they were scientist. What were they studying? What kind
of scientists? Could one of their experiments gone horribly wrong and the child they created grew to an enourmous size? Maybe that's why they don't want to use the word "monster".
But why would he kill the pilot in the very first episode? Hmm....
The last scene with Sayid in the jungle and hearing the voices all around him really FREAKED ME OUT!
- Charlie and Claire will have a island wedding w/ Jack officiating.
- Sun and Michael hook up. (kind of obvious though, huh?)
I'm not at all happy that I have to wait TWO WEEKS to see the show again. I need to start recording them!
