Lost Discussion Thursday

OK, it's really Friday. So sue me.

Did you do your homework and watch the clip I assigned last week? Let's discuss, shall we? I liked the ending a lot, where the filmmakers seemingly got caught eavesdropping on the "meeting". I thought that led to an authentic feeling. But what did you all think of the hints in the clip. I feel like we all have a bit of a better understanding of the Hanso Foundation and the history of the experiments on the island. Plus it gives more of a complete picture of the different experiments and what failed. I liked that this was 'leaked' before the new season starts.

If you haven't had the time or energy to watch last season's DVDs in time for the Season 3 opening next week, take a look at this site, which has some great spoilers, hints, mysteries solved, etc. It's a fun site.

In case you've forgotten, here's a summary of the Season 2 finale, "Live Together, Die Alone," which took place after 65 days on the island:

  • Desmond reappears, drifting back to the island on the sailboat that Libby had given him in a flashback. "Why'd you come back?" Jack asks. "Do you think I did it on purpose?" Desmond replies.
  • Desmond declares, "We're stuck in a bloody snow globe. There's no escape!"
  • Locke and Eko argue about the validity of the hatch and its omnipresent button. "You're a slave to that, just like I was," Locke says. "It's not real; we're only puppets."
  • Kate thinks the Others are disguising themselves to make the castaways "think they're hillbillies," when they might be far more sophisticated.
  • Michael admits he is leading Kate, Sawyer, Hurley and Jack into a trap so the Others will return Walt.
  • Sayid, Jin and Sun sail to the other side of the island and discover a statue with only four toes.
  • Shot with paralyzing darts, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley and Jack are captured.
  • Desmond believes that he and the electromagnetic field of the hatch crashed Oceanic Flight 815.
  • With Desmond's help, Locke blocks Eko from the hatch and lets the clock count down to prove that it was all a nightmarish psychological experiment. Eko gets dynamite from Charlie and tries to blow open the doors, without success. The hatch explodes like a mild atomic bomb, turning the sky a deep violet.
  • Henry Gale appears to be a leader of the Others. When Michael asks, "Who are you people?" Henry claims, "We're the good guys."
  • Henry releases Hurley and tells him, "Your job is to tell the rest of your people that they can never come here." Then he instructs one of his assistants to put hoods over the heads of Jack, Kate and Sawyer.
  • The Others give Walt back to Michael and send them off into the horizon in a boat, supposably back to the real world.
  • Charlie and Claire kiss and make up after a season of bad behavior from Charlie.
This site has complete transcripts of the episodes if you haven't had time to watch every one, or if you need some prep work before next week.

This site had a lot of interesting information, like who is Alvar Hanso's daughter. It also has this post, which gives you plenty of reading on the meaning of the numbers....

Here's a fun QUIZ you can take to find out what a dedicated Lostie you are. What was your score?

Here's a teaser for you. Boone is coming back. I'm not sure if it's just in flashbacks, or how he appears, but he's in the cast for the upcoming season. What do you think they'll do with his already dead character?

My comments: I don't believe that Michael and Walt will ever escape from the island. I think that they'll have a lovely tour of the island's circumference and will end up at the Lostie beach, where they'll be treated as outcasts. Especially by Hurley. I don't think I would want to be on his bad side.

I think the numbers will end up being something fairly benign, especially if they do equal the julian date for March 1948 as the speculation on the 'net seems to believe.

I think the rivalry between Sawyer and Jack will escalate as they try to escape with Kate from the Other's hideaway. Plus, I am guessing that they'll learn enough info about the Others to confuse us even more. As old mysteries end up being solved, new mysteries will start to appear.

I can't wait for the new season. In the meantime I've been watching Heros, which I like a lot. I think it could be an interesting as Lost. And I love the Japanese transporter guy. Man, is he adorable or what?

What are your theories for the next season? Anything you need to get off your chest before we start with the updates and commentaries?
