I don't think anyone really expected that Jin was dead.

Lost has proven that no one is dead unless you see them decapitated and then you personally burn the corpse. Even then they might find a way to bring the person back to life.

How so? Those who have died so far have stayed dead. There's potential that Locke may return to life somehow, but I'm not so sure. Nobody actually believed Jin was dead, particularly since we didn't actually see him die in the first place.

And Hurley seeing ghosts doesn't count.

I think because of all the ghosts and flashbacks and time travel and a couple of returns from the dead (Locke, Keemee, that eyepatch dude), there's the illusion/feeling that people don't stay dead, but in general I'd agree Lost has been pretty consistent with dead people being dead.  And there's quite a few, major and minor characters:

First season brother and sister pair - both dead
agent chasing Kate - dead
Greg Grunberg - dead
Nikki and Paulo - dead
Charlie - dead
Ana Lucia - dead
Libby - dead
Eko -dead
Goodwin - dead
Ethan - dead
Arnst - very very dead
Keemee - dead (I think)
Eyepatch - dead (not confirmed, maybe he healed in the ocean)
Hot Others chicks that beat up Charlie - all dead

Today I was wondering what happens when they all return to the island. The island stops time warping. Charles Widmore won't be able to find them. They will be friends with the Others. No longer will they be focused on trying to get off the island or be rescued. What now? Hang out on the beach hoping the smoke monster doesn't appear?

My theory is that Widmore will be able to follow them somehow. In the end, they'll realize that the only way to stop all the pain and trouble (and potential future disaster) the Island is causing is to destroy the entire thing. I think season 6 will focus on a small-scale war upon the island, where the stakes are Widmore's time-space domination versus the Island's destruction.

At least they answered how the head, ageless "other" (forgot his name) knew where Locke was and visited him as a kid. I remember the test when he asked young Locke to choose an item, was one of the items in the test a compass? When young Locke chose the knife he failed the test, would he have passed the test if he chose the compass? I think this was last season. When Lost is finally over I'm gonna have to watch the whole thing front to end on DVD just to get everything I missed or forgot.

Yep. Richard was looking for him to take the compass.

Pretty cool episode!

Spoiler for Hiden:
Loved the way Sawyer was stuck holding the rope morphed into the ground after the time shift.

Sad to see the redhead die rather unceremoniously.  I kept thinking her plotline wasn't resolved yet, but I guess that was about it.  Aside from maybe seeing Daniel talk to her as a child.

I was a little confused about the second timeshift with Danielle.  She was still preggers but it seemed like a lot more time had supposedly past.  Maybe she just went nuts immediately after Jin vanished?

Yay!  Desmond's already in LA lol!  That sure didn't take long.  How much of the 70 hours is left?

The first guy into the temple made me think of Mustafa in Austin Powers. Seemed quite calm considering what happened after his team tried to give him a hand.

Otherwise I liked it.

What makes you so certain that was actually him? I vote he was either possessed by the smoke monster already, or he was dead and the monster manifested as him (an ability that has been documented earlier). If we assume that Danielle was correct and her people actually got "sick", it might mean that they were all possessed or manifestations eventually.

Given that she was still pregnant in the second flashback, it would appear all of this happened very quickly/soon after the initial event occured.  Were the 2 bodies that Jin saw 2 more of her crew (that she presumably shot)?

Yes, they were members of her crew. The murders happened some time after the monster attack, as the severed hand had deteriorated rather badly at the time. Considering she was 7 months pregnant at the time of the attack, I'd say there was probably a period of about 2-4 weeks between the events.

Best line of the episode once again goes to Miles:
Quote
Don't look at me. I'm from Encino.

Kind of annoying how knowing the future causes the future to happen. Obviously Daniel is going to go back in time to save Charlotte, driving her off the island which just causes her to want to come back where she will eventually die.

Ben is awesome. I love the way he plays all of them. Holding Jin's ring until they are back at the church. Telling Jack half truths about going to see Locke.   icon_lol

Loved loved loved last night's ep!

Best line of the night:

Jack: "what happens to the rest of the people on the plane?"

Ben: "who cares?!?"

I don't even know where to start.  Though I knew they were going to move things along to get people back to the island, this was far faster than I thought they'd go.  Clearly they've left a lot of dangling threads, as to how Hugo, Sayid, Ben, etc all end up on the plane, but these can be tied up pretty easily in an ep or 2.  I'm just glad we are back on the island.  I love the concept of the island *always* in motion in space/time, never occured to me but it certainly makes sense - if anything makes sense in the Lostverse.  Still don't know how they will tie the mystical stuff to the scientific, should be very a good ride.

I agree, last nights episode was great and it opens it up to tell the stories of how all of them came together on the plane in the end. Which will probably be told over the next 3-4 eps in my opinion. Next week it looks like they'll show Lockes story after he turned the wheel, I cant wait, Lost just gets better and better.

Pretty sure that Charlie convinced Hurley to ride the plane, and that it's Charlie's guitar (or a guitar like Charlie's) that he's lugging around. I'm also pretty sure that Kate's pregnant, making her sort of double as Claire's proxy. Frank was originally supposed to be piloting the original crash, so it's actually perfect for him to be piloting the second time around.

I was afraid they were going to spend the whole season getting the castaways back to the island, so I was very pleased that they did it so quickly. I'm also confident that the writers are in control of their story.

That was good, but this one was better:

Jack: "How can you read?"
Ben: "My mother taught me."

Who was the other guy in First Class that told Jack "sorry about your friend dying"? I know he looks familiar.

Kate is a cold bitch. She treats Jack like shit, fucks him, getting him all happy only to give him the cold shoulder again.

That line was great, but what makes it even better, or creepier I guess (and I had to read this online to remember) is that his mom died giving birth to him (which I completely forgot).

Didn't know who that guy was either...

Kate is a ho!  Notice she always gets horny when she is sad or pissed off (see sawyer sex scenes for reference).

Great show...great season so far. Glad they got rid of Aaron...dragging him around the island would have been no fun. Wonder what she did with him? Great note from Locke to Jack. Anyone know what painting that was over Kate's shoulder in Jack's apt? Great look on Jin's face, but how have the time jumps stopped/slowed down enough for Jin to have had time to get geared up like that? Did the plane really crash or were the returnees caught in a time jump?

I think the time jumping has stopped altogether after Locke turned the wheel, so the Losties are now stuck in the glory days of the Dharma Initiative, trying to find a way back.

Yea, I dont think the plane crashed, I think they just got time/space shifted. I somehow doubt they wanna deal with another plane crash, but I could be wrong. I like the proxy idea though, remember Kate having a deputy escorting her? Now Saiyd has a deputy escorting him. I wonder who the new guy on the plane with them was a proxy for? And the time jumping thing must have stopped for a while when the Dharma initiative was around since you see Daniel all over the place whenever they have flashes of that time.

Yet another amazing episode in the annals of Lost-dom.  Just when you think you have predicted a pattern or know where they are heading, they twist you around again.  I am now getting more and more anxious about how the show will end.  But mostly in the sense that I believe if they can deliver even a semi-satisfying conclusion, it will become (and remain) my all-time favorite television series.  On to the content:

Spoiler for Hiden:
WTF?  Ben saves Locke from killing himself but then kills him himself.  Although the scene seemed to be building that way, I still was surprised at how quickly it happened.  Was Ben just fishing for a name?  Or was the name of Hawking too controversial?  Since I believe she was the young girl in the past (with Widmore), it's plausible Ben assumed she was with Widmore and John was already "compromised".  Yet he makes no indication of animosity toward her in last week's episode.  Never trust Ben!  But then who do you trust?  Widmore?  Someone call Jack Bauer!

Surprised the plane actually did crash!  Hooray, more redshirts to kill!!

Locke resurrects!  We knew it would happen, but never guessed it would be this soon.  The question is "when" is he and will he continue to elude death/sacrifice since Ben killed him (as opposed to committing suicide).

And Ben made it back to the island?  I thought he could never come back?  Or is he just a renegade gone rogue so he can break all the rules?

Poor Haitian (yes I realize it's not the Haitian but that's what I call him).  Glad he got one more ep as he is too busy in Fringe now smile  At least they let Walt live in what I presume was his finale as well.

I agree, another good episode. Frankly I don't believe anything that the shows tells us about the characters. For all we know that is a tombstone with Helen's name, but no body. She could be alive and well. John was shown her grave so he would keep his focus on returning to the island.

That's twice that Ben has tried to kill John. I'm looking forward to their reunion when Ben wakes up.

"When" the plane crashed is going to be an interesting dilemma if they're at a different time then the new Others.

At this point, in a war between Charles and Ben how can you choose a side? They both are a bit suspect.

plus the fact that the Oceanic 6 were said to have been back for 3 years.  I wonder how they're going to handle that since the people that stayed didn't seem to have 3 years pass.

My guess is it will be the impact of seeing each other will feel very different for the characters.  Kate hasn't seen Sawyer in 3 years, she's almost married Jack, lost her son, etc etc. - but has also been doing something for him all those years.  But for Sawyer, it was only a few days worth of his "real time" since he kissed her and thought he'd never see her again.  So the emotional impacts and dynamics should be extremely different.  She's moved on with her life and is seeing an ex flame; he is still in the moment and more relieved/surprised than anything else.  Same kind of dynamic for Sun/Jin, I'd think.

Now that you mentioned it, this essentially already happened last episode.  For the Oceanic, they hadn't seen Locke in about 2 years.  From Locke's perspective, he had just seen them on the island hours ago.  They really didn't play this off much at all, though you could imagine this is more of a nuance that the actor has to portray than something they can force into the script.   

Basically I think the actors are really going to have the bigger burden in pulling this off effectively, particularly Sun and Kate who need to convey a ton more of time passage (as well as moving on with their lives) in their performances.

Well, the people who stayed didnt have 3 years pass for them because they have been time shifting so everything is kinda screwy, the people who left have had a normal 3 years pass. But now that the Oceanic 6 are back on the Island everything will get synched up again (between people who left and stayed), at least thats what it looks like. I'm just not sure if the new downed plane is in the same time as Jack/hurely/kate are, I'm assuming they are but then I thought the plane wouldn't crash so who knows.

Season 4 is great, you can feel the writers really hitting their stride as they know exactly how many episodes they have to finish the show.  But... it does start to get more and more sci-fi oriented as well, and the plotlines are even more intricate and complex, so that may or may not be a turn off for your wife.  However there is at least one episode, The Constant (featuring Desmond), that is possibly one of the finest hours of network TV I've ever seen.  Incredibly romantic and well acted and needs to be watched!

I'm pretty sure the downed plane is in current time, Jack/Hurley/Kate are in the 70s, so Sun/Jin are still separated and Kate and Sawyer are still separated.

Yep- those were the kayaks we saw several episodes ago when Sawyer, Juliette, and Co. flashed forward briefly.  So they are definitely post-2004 while Jack, Kate, etc are in the 70s.

Not sure- S4 (and 5 so far) are awesome but the increasing complexity of the timeline as well as the sci-fi elements are really starting to distance my wife from the show.

plus the fact that the Oceanic 6 were said to have been back for 3 years.  I wonder how they're going to handle that since the people that stayed didn't seem to have 3 years pass.

Well, the people who stayed didnt have 3 years pass for them because they have been time shifting so everything is kinda screwy, the people who left have had a normal 3 years pass. But now that the Oceanic 6 are back on the Island everything will get synched up again (between people who left and stayed), at least thats what it looks like. I'm just not sure if the new downed plane is in the same time as Jack/hurely/kate are, I'm assuming they are but then I thought the plane wouldn't crash so who knows.

I'm pretty sure the downed plane is in current time, Jack/Hurley/Kate are in the 70s, so Sun/Jin are still separated and Kate and Sawyer are still separated.

Hmmm...didnt know the Kyaks where from the present, thought they might have been from another jump from the past. And Kate and Sawyer ARE in the same time (70's) so they could theortically be together. Boy, goes to show you how confusing it can get, at least for me.

The Losties camp was already in place when Sawyer and Co. found the kayaks so that made it sometime post 2004.

Thats right...I remember now when they first got to the camp when the kyaks were there, the camp was ransacked and Sawyer was pissed they had drank all the Dharma beer...

Okay, as I see it, either Locks turning of the wheel or the Oceanic 6's return stopped the uncontrolled time shifting (or both). Unfortunately the people that were left on the Island are now stuck in the 70's(where the time shifting stopped) and have been there for 3 years working with the Dharma people. The final scene is basically from shortly after the end of last episode where Kate/Jack/Hurely get caugt in the last Time shift and are now in the 70's with the other losties (so 3 years have past for the people who left the Island and the people on the Island who time shifted). Now the losties in the past will have to find a way to the present, I'm thinking they'll turn the wheel again, but who knows, its allittle convoluted at this point. As for the people and losties on the crashed plane, I have no clue whats gonna happen with them (though I hope Locke stops trusting Ben, who keeps on trying to kill him).
