A TALE OF TWO CITIES - SEASON 3, EPISODE 1









Here it is! The Lost Community's first official episode discussion thread has arrived. We would like to wish everyone a very happy "Lost Day". Have fun discussing the ins and outs of the most anticipated network premiere of the year. Keep an eye on this post, it will change as needed.

Concerning Spoilers: There has been much discussion and we wanted to let everyone know that we are entertaining ideas of how to handle advance information about upcoming episodes. We really hope that it will not be a major problem once the season gets rolling. However, we will be keeping a close watch on how things go from here and make changes as necessary. We don't want to rush into an unecessary decision so please be patient with us as we strive to do what's best for the community at large.

First! I always wanted to do that. Now I return you to your regularly scheduled program!

Administrator said...

I agree with Twinkles assessment of the spoiler situation and use of the word "unwieldy". Time will tell.

We don't want this blog to be spoiler city and we also don't want it to be home of the crazy moderators. Hopefully, we'll all be able to kindly and patiently contribute to the BUILDING OF A CULTURE that is generally respectful spoiler free.

Now that we'll soon have an episode to talk about, we may generally be less obsessed with spoilers...at least until the first 6 episodes are complete.

Twinkle said...

Repost from last thread:
Hey, everybody! Long time no post! I've been on a blog vacation. I used w00t today in an e-mail. Just one more way TLE has changed me. I missed you guys and GALS! ;-)

Thrasher: The two posts idea - Can I check that I have your idea straight? By spoilers you mean information like from spoilerfix.com, but not details and information about the episode itself, right? An episode's post will be marked with the episode number, name, and the air date of the country it aired in so those from another country or who haven't seen the episode yet know to enter at their own risk. When an episode that aired in the US airs in Aus, then it will get a new post with a new air date, right? Are you thinking of creating two posts for every episode so that one is spoiler free and one isn't? Or is it just two posts for this first episode?

Personally, I think anything about a future episode like the stuff that spoilerfix.com posts doesn't belong on TLC. There are other places to talk about that. Otherwise maybe a section of the message board would work? I haven't read above to see how many want to discuss spoilers, so no offense if I'm going against the general consensus. The admins could also choose to create a new post if TV guide or EW comes out with a Lost article that contains spoilers so people would know to go there if they wanted to discuss them. Otherwise I think two posts for every episode would become unwieldy.

Administrator said...

Sorry for the typos...I'm in an unfamiliar environment (I'm a guest in a very hot upstairs room at a stranger's house in Atlanta Georgia). I'll be in and out throughout the evening.

I've missed you guys and am glad to be back (intermittently until next week)

Twinkle said...

Oh, hi Admin! You already replied. Thanks! How was your first anniversary celebration!?

maven said...

Top Ten on LOST DAY! Yea!

Happy Anniversary again, Mr. and Mrs. Admin!

I have a feeling a great majority of us can self-police ourselves re spoilers...and it will be less and less of a problem as each episode airs.

Administrator said...

Maven,

Glad to know you agree. I think, TOGETHER, we'll all figure it out as we go along. We're all friends and can communicate in an understanding and respectful manner and find an appropriate balance. "Self-policing" is the way to go...I hope.

All,

Thanks for asking about and celebrating my anniversary with me! Alli & I had a blast at a really nice lakehouse. We played on Sea-Doos and a Jeep Wrangler and rested A LOT. It was great. I'm at a conference in Atlanta right now but I'm glad to be back online with my Lost community of friends!

kvonhard said...

So, to double check, information or ideas that come from articles, such as Doc Jensen the NY Times or some of the others that have been posted(as opposed to Spoilerfix)would be considered spoilers? I don't want to do anything untoward. Mostly a lurker, but a pretty big reader who enjoys sharing. :-)

Benito said...

Happy LOST Day everyone! Can't wait!

RyaNDrumZ said...

top 10!!!

maven said...

Kvonhard: I think the best way for us to handle this spoiler thing is to ask first if you're not sure whether or not it IS a spoiler. Links with an explanation to what you're linking to (contains possible spoilers, etc.) would be much better than actually quoting something or doing the "spoiler alert" thing that requires a lot of scrolling and maybe seeing or unintentional peeking. IMHO

maven said...

Hey, ryan! WE still have almost 5 1/2 hours left!

kvonhard said...

That makes sense. I enjoy reading the things like had been posted on the other board that talk about the application of the references and stuff. I also enjoy rehashing (or explain why I think they're wrong) articles theorizing about the mythology.

I just don't want to upset or insult online. Ironically, I have no problems doing it in real life when people could physically beat me up. Go figure ...

kvonhard said...

unreltaed question: no way to turn off the word verification required for posting, huh?

LifeObstacle said...

Geez, I go for a coffee break, and look what happens!

I am starting to like twinkle's idea. Plus, if we had separate links for every post, then it might not feel like such a community. Instead you'd have those on spoilers and those on non-spoilers. Twinkle's idea would keep the community feel.

Sayid'sgirl said...

This is such a nice place. No one yells or screams or calls names. You all try to work things out together with consideration. It's great.

For some reason I'm having trouble posting,it keeps bringing me back to my post.

So if I postthis more than once I apologize.

Maybe it's the tornado warnings in my area. (20 miles away)I hope my tv doesn't go out durng Lost

Administrator said...

As the spoiler discussion continues...Will the message board provide a healthy outlet for those who are addicted to discussing spoilers?

I haven't looked at it a ton but does it (or could it) have a good place or method for discussing spoilers? If it does, problem solved. If someone posts something spoilerish - whoever catches it first can "self-police" and simply 1) direct them to the MB via a link 2) and ask them to repost and delete their comment.

Everyone has their own definition of "spoiler" we'll work on a universal one and post in in "Blog Commenting 101". This can also be shared with transgressors via a link.

Administrator said...

kvonhard,

word verification helps us prevent spammers. Get used to your tab key! :)

kvonhard said...

It's less the tabbing than the trying to coordinate random letters in my brain and finding them. I've done it wrong three times in four posts so far tonight.

Administrator said...

sayid's girl,

glad you enjoy the friendly culture developed here! Props to everyone who has been a part of it. I love it too!

Administrator said...

kvonhard,
typing class?
:)

Passafist said...

I posted this in the last thread but if anybody missed it....

In Reguards to the TLC PODCAST!!
Send me your short mp3 comments on this wednesday's episode of lost. Send the comments (or if you can't record mp3's, an e-mail which we may discuss) to passafistwastaken@gmail.com referring to anything about Wednesday's episode, or ongoing discussion in the comments. (I'm not going to set a time limit on audio files but if you can't say it in less than 5 minutes it's probably too much anyway)Please keep your comments PG- rated and I retain any rights to edit comments (for obscene content and to reduce any amount of redundancy)."

I'll be collecting comments until Saturday Morning. It's my hope that the podcast will edited and up on the tuesday before the next the episode. Make your post fun and interesting, cosider this more than just a run of the mill podcast, consider it a way for everybody in the TLC to get to know you. Don't forget to start your comments out with your name......

This is a big test! If this podcast is successful (meaning I get a bunch of comments, and it seems like everybody really is interested in continuing it) I'll probably continue to do it. If not no harm, no foul. WORD UP AND GOD BLESS!! NAMASTE!!

Thank YOu and Happy Watching Tonight

kvonhard said...

LOL .. more eye-hand coordination. I'm not good at video games either. :-)

Can. Not. Wait. 2 hr. 7 min. 54 sec according to my watch.

Administrator said...

I can't wait either...I've been so excited all day. Gotta take a break for dinner with my hosts. I'll be back asap.

Familia Alves Santos said...

Hi guys, just want to say hi! Unfortunately I can’t see the episode today, but tomorrow when it will be on the abc’s site I will have my chance.

Have I great time! Enjoy!

LifeObstacle said...

Kvonhard, at least you're not on the west coast. I'm still at work.

kvonhard said...

OK, I apologize. If I didn't have to get up in the morning, I'd be willing to hold off until you all got to see it. :-(

RyaNDrumZ said...

Hey Maven...I'm so jealous that the east-coasters get to see this and talk about it before we get a chance...I'M SO EXCITED!!!!

kvonhard said...

Well, for West Coasters, you can at least be happy that where you're watching from is warm and sunny during the day. That might make the waiting more pallitable?

LifeObstacle said...

I'm stuck in a basement without windows, so warm and sunny means nothing until the weekend.

LifeObstacle said...

It's almost like I'm stuck in a hatch.

Yeah, I know, bad joke.

kvonhard said...

I tried to find a bright side about being on the West Coast instead of the East Coast ...

FYSB said...

Hey Admin....Glad to see you're around!

Message board could work. It would be a way to create an outlet for those who want to discuss spoilers. They can get it out of their systems without leaving the community.

I'm glad we seem to want to move toward a spoiler free culture. I don't think you have to become CrazyModeratorGuy; I do believe it will be helpful, as we move toward consensus, to post some guidelines upfront as to what is/is not spoiler. (and will save you time monitoring the board) My concern around allowing spoilers -even as links - is that gives an opening for a spoiler discussion and that will drive people away.

I suspect that as the season continues, our community will grow signficantly, much as it did over the summer. It will save a lot of frustration if we are clear upfront. Then we can help the new people based on a single set of guidelines.

Now let's get to work on getting Joop a walk on role this season!

Twinkle said...

I just found out that my husband didn't have Lost set to record. Doh! So glad we caught that in time!

kvonhard said...

LOL LOL ... well, don't listen to them if they tell you that you'll die if you leave. :-)

Raechel said...

i'm so excited to finally see the hydro hatch! (did you watch the video podcast - it's on Damon's hat :-) )

Midnightstrider said...

Hey everyone!

1 hour and 35 minuites! *trembles* Come on, come on...

mountain girl said...

I'm so jealous of people on the east coast!!! We've still got 3.5 hours to go here on the left side of the country!

nycsky said...

this is what it must feel like for a junkie..... waiting for a drug dealer to show up....

Monday Lad said...

Don't fret mountain girl - by the time we waited for UK TV to catch up 30% of the population would have been wiped out!

As it is I reckon it'll be about 5.30am before some kind (if naughty) US fan uploads.

Arrrgh - tell you what! Can all you guys tivo it and then wait until we're ready in the UK? Then we'll watch it together on the W.W.sofa.

Just a thought....

;-)

Thrasher76 said...

Top 50 or something!!! WhooHoo!!!! Happy Lost Day!!! Only 1 and a half hours until showtime!!! Later gang!!

Peace & Namaste!!!

Monday Lad said...

Very thoughtful FYSB, thanks - but now you HAVE put that song in our heads!!!

...Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the....

Arrrrrrgh!

maven said...

Admin: I think the message board is a good idea! There threads are labelled very specifically.

I'm hoping that some of us old timers/regulars/anal retentive-types will speak up when someone "accidentally" posts a spoiler and gently askthem to delete it or direct them to the message board. We don't want to alienate anybody and we do want to keep this the great community it is. The consensus is "spoiler-free zone" at TLC, and we'll all help make sure that continues.

There are pluses and minuses to whereever you live...but it's definitely a minus here on the westcoast today being 3 hours behind you eastcoasters in seeing LOST tonite! (It's even worse for UK and AUS!)

Caboose192 said...

Top 50 in the first Episode post of what will hopefully become an incredibly succesful blog!

Hmmm...Not as catchy as "First!" :/

Kylelane said...

Hi oh favored Lost posse!

I too have taken a blog vacation as I've tried to get other life affairs in order so as to have more time to Lost-obsess during the season. Ah it's a beuatiful thing.

Just wanted to say hi and I'm psyched. Hope you all are top-chuck!

FYSB said...

Really MondayLad? I had NO idea that would happen....


mwahahaha

kvonhard said...

I agree that the idea of a spoiler-free zone is good. It's easier to put them where interested folk can access them but to keep them away from people who don't like them.

Ange said...

One Hour and counting. The message board is a great idea for spoilers, plus a great board in general...just saying. I avoid spoilers like the plague, so haven't really been able to get too into the comments here lately. Anyway...1 MORE HOUR!

kvonhard said...

I like Bones, but I think this will be the longest episode of it ever ... So, why is it that Lost seems to create a time continuum issue? When I'm waiting for the episode, it's like every minute is an hour and when I'm watching the episode, it's like the hour is just a minute!

Midnightstrider said...

The message board is a excellent idea! It allows only those of us who enjoying spoilers to be spoiled. Just one more hour! ^.^

Amused2bHere said...

Howdy all! Less than an hour until LOST...omg, first the Mets take game one of the division series and now this...how much excitement can a girl take?

Maven: I love what you said about gently reminding each other about spoilers and the message board. "Gently" is the key word, and a big part of why we loved TLEC, and it should be thus in TLC too.

Twinkle said...

DeDJeZTeR is one of the guys who ran the message board last time and I think he said he would attempt porting it over (or something) for TLC.

Ange, do you know? Anyway, just wanted to let him know we appreciate his work. Thanks, DeDJeZTeR!

kvonhard said...

Exactly, I've been in and out of different communities and this is the only one I've consistently stayed on b/c people are so welcoming and smart.

Exciting part for me: I get to actually participate this time instead of lurk. I had no idea how to do TLE without following everyone and I get frustrated when I can't do things. So, I admit, I bandwagoned. I love that here I can talk to people about the theories, mythology and deeper meanings without people thinking I'm weird. :-)

Amused2bHere said...

Weird? welcome to the asylum, kvon. You'll fit right in.

Codysmom said...

Hey, everybody!!! Happy Lost Day! Less than an hour. Yipppeee!

Crossfade said...

Evening LoCo and happy Lost Day! Not long now...

Caboose192 said...

38 mins! 2,520 seconds! 144,020 milliseconds!

Little Alex FTS said...

isnt september 24th lost day? hahaha

tlcm said...

only 36 minutes to go......I'm so excited. I took today off work and took an extra nap (chemo wears you out).

I'm not sure what you mean by the message board; so please correct me if I drop a spoiler...

I watch "live together, die alone" last night and realized that libby's husband name was david. could he have been one of the people hurley's accident killed? perhaps that's why he saw "Dave" as his alternate personality. just a thought.

Dscottcool said...

Hey everybody, I'm Dan. I followed TLE for a while but never talked on the comments until now. Anyway.....

yeeee I'm excited!

psycho said...

wow you guys are fast

Amused2bHere said...

welcome Dan, from one former lurker to another.

psycho said...

former lurkers unite

Ange said...

Twinkle- HI THERE! Yes Lostgrrl and DeD have got the message board all set and running. It is linked right on TLC main page. It is all sparkley and pretty too. Plus all of TLE stuff is archived there. CHeck it out. The best part...no unanswered questions yet!

Administrator said...

Twinkle,
Lostgrrl and Dedjezter already have a new message board set up for TLC. I'll talk to them about getting something setup for spoilers asap.(if they don't already!)

BTW...
Welcome to amused2bhere, psycho, dscottcool, littlealexfts, caboose, kyle, lifeobstacle, monday...and everyone! Welcome all! Make new friends but keep the old...one is silver and the other is gold.

maven said...

Welcome to delurking, dan!

Gosh, I'm so envious of you east coasters! I'm signing off and letting you guys bask in your glory. Will be back on after west coast is done. Hopefully, some of the west coaster will be here talking (although I do want to watch The Nine, also). Have fun everyone!

Administrator said...

Don't worry Ange, we'll have plenty of unanswered questions after tonight! :)

sean said...

T-MINUS 24 minutes and counting!

Caboose192 said...

Hey, I've been here since TLEC!

Damnit...

Crossfade said...

Sorry mave, the wait must be terrible.

Ange said...

David- I don't mind unanswered questions, just as long as I am not sitting here at ten yelling, "WHAT DOES IT MEAN," over and over like the finale.:D...T minus 20 minutes!

sean said...

ok. ill sympathise with west coasters.

T-MINUS 3 hours and 21 minutes and counting...

wow. i cant imagine.

Dscottcool said...

thanks everybody! i feel like we haven't really been talking about... you know, LOST, yet. I'll start.

Anybody have any guesses as to how they'll shock us this year? You know there's going to be SOMETHING in the opener that makes people say "OH MY (divine being of choice)"

I'm gonna speculate that the others are different than we thought. Maybe they're *actually* good guys like Fake Henry Gale said... or maybe they're all former members of Guns N' Roses. Who knows. I'm excited no matter what, though.

Midnightstrider said...

Just out of curiosity, does anyone have plans to celebrate tonights episode? I bought 6 packs of Lost cards and a 4 pack of red bull on my way home today, just because I was so excited ;).

Crossfade said...

Midnightstrider: I plan to pop the top on an icy cold can of Sprite (I love Lymon) and much on some chips. Thats pretty much it.

sean said...

i dont have any big plans to celebrate. i know there are some people having lost parties. but im not planning anything special.

Crossfade said...

1st much=munch

sean said...

14 minutes.

tlcm said...

I'm nusring a french silk pie to indulge while watching

SunBruise said...

10 mins

sean said...

im recording tonights episode on VCR. i'll probably watch it one or two times tomorrow. then, a friend of mine is TiVo-ing it on his HDTV with surround sound. so by next week, il probably have memorized the episode.

11 minutes.

Amused2bHere said...

I got my chips, dip, drinks, husband, footstool, comfy chair, kid in bed already, phone set to ignore...I think I'm ready.

My guess for the shocker of tonight: the Others are revealed to be the descendants of the survivors of (not spoiler)










the Minnow! They live in a resort community that have live shows of the retired Globe Trotters every Wednesday. If this has been mentioned before, please forgive me.

kvonhard said...

LOL ... and they've got a professor who can make an atomic bomb from a coconut but can't get them off the island!

skick said...

This may have been discussed earlier, but can anyone tell me if there is ANY WAY at all to watch the Premiere on-line? iTunes doesn't have the 3rd season available yet, and ABC won't release it on-line until tomorrow. I don't have a TV and I'm twitching with the thought of having to wait until tomorrow...

Anyone?

psycho said...

yeah im going to drive home in my jeep compass talk on my verizon phone about the show to my friends while i watch, all while drinking a sprite and looking for a job on monster.com

Chelsea said...

omg they just showed the promo on ABC. Im so excited!

Crossfade said...

Time to watch. See y'all in about an hour.

sean said...

4 minutes.

Dscottcool said...

Sayid's the professor, desmond's the skipper, and hurley is gilligan!

tlcm said...

oh no, I just sat on my pie. no time to clean it up 4 minutes togo

sean said...

i actually wasnt watching ABC until now. i was watching the end of mr. and mrs. smith on HBO.

its over.

Dscottcool said...

anyway, time to get into my special LOST bunker with some icecream and water. Bye!

kvonhard said...

Claire's MaryAnn and Kate's Ginger!

Amused2bHere said...

have a great night, everyone


big HUGS

cya later!

sean said...

someone got kicked off dancing with the stars.

2 minutes left. see you all in an hour!

LostFanatic said...

2 minutes to go.... yyeeessss!!!!!! I'm like a little kid on christmas morning! Btw.. I too am a lurker from TLEC, but I hope to be much more active now in TLC. You guys are all awesome!

psycho said...

bye seeya sometime tomorrow, btw my jeep compass has a flat my phone is out my sprite has gone flat and monster has blocked me for some reason, oh well, my tv works at least

Chelsea said...

Alright guys, it's time!

seeya in an hour.

kvonhard said...

Hey LostFanatic! Enjoy the episode! See y'all in an hour ...

DeDJeZTeR said...

Shhhhhhhhhhh its starting... lol

LockeBox said...

OMFG! Everyone else watching?

LostFanatic said...

OMG!!!!!! What a start to the season!!!!!!!!! The first 5 minutes and I'm already gasping for breath! :-) I love this show!!!

LockeBox said...

Btw, great to be over here from TLEC everyone! Yay for season three, too!

megan said...

WOOOOW!! haha. the first 5 mins has me in shock, as well!! so excited guys!! <3

LockeBox said...

lostfanatic - you're not kidding. I thought it was an off-island flashback!

Passafist said...

THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES......





_____________SPOILER_______________





























FREAKIN AWESOME!











_______________END SPOILER_________




WORD!!!!

LostFanatic said...

me too... until they showed fake henry

noblelawyer said...

who was bookclub girl and why does she look so familiar - maybe I just recognize the actress but not from this show?

LockeBox said...

Jack walking into the glass wall - product placement for Windex? I've done that myself, too...

noblelawyer said...

sawyer defintely looks like he as athe worst conditions

LostFanatic said...

ah-ha! so that's juliette!

LockeBox said...

Book lady = Juliette, right? Does that make Not Henry Gale "Romeo"?

kvonhard said...

I laughed at Jack in the promo too ...

What if it's like that Sartre play, where each is in his/her own personal version of h*ll?

noblelawyer said...

have we heard her name before?
we haven't seen her on the show right? I just recognized her from ER right?

LockeBox said...

Btw, did anyone get a good look at the DHARMA symbol near Sawyer?

LockeBox said...

kvonhard - cool idea. If it is, I want Kate's hell: clean shower, towels, and products sounds like a good idea.

noblelawyer said...

i'm so excited I can't take it all in, but am redcording it and will watch it again right after

Passafist said...

Lockebox the Darhma Insignia looked like a monkey.....

kvonhard said...

Sartre play = No Exit. The first girl was in love with the guy, he was in love with the second girl and she was gay and in love with the first girl. If I remember the play correctly. They had to spend eternity together ... ?

LockeBox said...

passafist - Thanks. I was thinking either that or a crab-type thing of some sort.

noblelawyer said...

so what kate's going ot get with fenry?!?!?!

noblelawyer said...

DAMN!!!!!!!

LockeBox said...

"the next two weeks..." dun dun dunnnn

LostFanatic said...

wow... i can' wait to find out what he meant by that!!!

Passafist said...

Hmmm... two weeks, at the rate this show goes that should land somwhere in between seasons 8 and 9

megan said...

geeeez. i am totally not liking the others right now! ugh.
i do like kate's dress, though.
i am also not liking sara! haha.

this is a great episode. i've been so excited for this season!! i played TLEC..but didn't really comment much..more of a silent player, i suppose. i finally decided to get a blogger because i love chatting about lost!! hope everyone's enjoying the show too! <3

LockeBox said...

LOL passafist.

Btw, anyone actually read A Tale of Two Cities? Care to shed some light on how you think the title fits the episode so far?

LockeBox said...

I think we're all having fun with that mix of elation and frustration that is the experience of watching Lost. Welcome to the community, Megan!

LockeBox said...

oh snap, Jack's dad

noblelawyer said...

well since Kate is the only one that some some nice treatment, and then warned that the next two week swould be hard, I figure kate may be having to go thro ugh the worst treatment

LostFanatic said...

I think jack's dad is having an affair with sara!

megan said...

thanks, lockebox! :]
yeah, i agree noble..she'll probably get the worst of it..especially with all the creepy men leering at her. ugh.

and jack's dad..wow. lol.
<33

LostFanatic said...

Anyone else think the camp there looks like it used to be a zoo for people?

LockeBox said...

That's odd. Although, I kind of liked the idea of Repo Jack.

LostFanatic said...

jeez, not another commerical! every 5 minutes, Grrrr....

megan said...

ummm..wow.
poor sawyer!

i'm really glad we're learning more about the others this season, because i've wondered what exactly made them think it was okay to..er..experiment on people lol.

LockeBox said...

loastfanatic - that's what I thought of, too. Or a type of experiment (particularly with Sawyer's levers) like The Pearl Orientation video made it look like The Swan's function was.

noblelawyer said...

first line of tale of two cities, as I recall
"it was the best of times, it was the worst of times."

megan said...

i agree lostfanatic!
it's realllly creepy.
i mean, the fact that the others had a community set up just to do this stuff..is in itself very creepy.

hmm.
i'm so interested to see how this ep ends haha.

noblelawyer said...

two guys that look alike, one good on bad
french revolution, the "bad" takes the place of the good, to save the "good" from the guilottine

LockeBox said...

We kind of lost this in the excitement of the first part of this episode, but anyone have any thoughts about the bandages on the captives? Do you think they injected something ("vaccine") or took something (blood sample)?

tlcm said...

This is great. I have no one in my family or co-workers to talk LOST with. I think the TLC is going to be a lot of fun.....

I thought that escape attempt was planted but then they make carl apologize.

LockeBox said...

noblelawyer - that's about as far as I got in the book, too.

LostFanatic said...

true lockebox... made me think of "maslo's heirarchy of needs" experimenations.

LockeBox said...

I think Sawyer's levers opened the other door.

LockeBox said...

Okay, I guess they gave them drugs.

LostFanatic said...

lockebox... i think they drew blood. didn't they do the same thing to michael when he was with the others?

LostFanatic said...

hahah. jack took down his pops. Love it!

LockeBox said...

The DHARMA symbol looks like an "Alien" facehugger!

LifeObstacle said...

My husband is out of town this week, and he just called me to tell me that I have to record the show and wait until Saturday to see it!!!!!!! (West coast, still over two hours to go...)

LockeBox said...

So, underwater hatch? Is that what we're thinking here?

megan said...

OMG!! underwater..whoa.
fenry is so creepy. :[

this juliet character is just irritating me lol.

LockeBox said...

Anyone who has American Express want to hook up TLC? ...I mean with the content - not your card number :)

megan said...

angry jack was great to watch. especially because he's always seemed so pulled together..it was nice to see him lose it haha.

noblelawyer said...

that is what i'm thinkin' but juliette sure gets around fast so must be near, maybe underneath where sawyer is

Kimber said...

haha, wish I had an American Express, :)

LostFanatic said...

yep underwater hatch... guess thats where the cable from the jungle went? :-) I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!

Ange said...

Kimber-You left chat too early...we are chattin at the commercials!

LockeBox said...

They must all be near each other since, yeah, otherwise, Juliet sure can move.

noblelawyer said...

i like jack more in this episode, than I have since season 1:1

kvonhard said...

All I remember from reading Tale of Two Cities was that Sydney Carton (the bad lookalike) was named Carton b/c he was trapped in a "box" within himself. In other words, his vices kept him emotionally stunted. Hmmm ... who could that be like?

LockeBox said...

lostfanatic - maybe. You know, I was rewatching season 1 before, and I always wondered what Sayid'd have found if he followed it the other way instead of into the jungle.

LockeBox said...

Da Bears

LostFanatic said...

the tale of two cities thing is very bad twin 'ish.

noblelawyer said...

ok. sawyers food just confirms what I have thought from the preview - that is orignally animal cage -and what zeke just said confirmed what another member said, that it was for th epolar bears

LockeBox said...

Jack's place is for the sharks then?

noblelawyer said...

so they are all at the animlal station

megan said...

lmaooo @ sawyer and his lil food jackpot. =D

why does jack get the special underwater hatch? they must have something different in store for him.

LockeBox said...

Do they have Facebook on The Island or something? How do they know all of this?

megan said...

lostfanatic..i was thinking the same thing about the whole "bad twin" thing. hmm.

noblelawyer said...

so the station has internet access

LostFanatic said...

WTF?!?!? How do hey have all that info?!?!?!

JoAnn said...

7 pm Pacific time here so I am waiting until after the show to read the comments. I'll be back at 10!

LockeBox said...

So, Not Henry Gale = Ben?

tlcm said...

did she say thank you red?

megan said...

i feel so bad for jack. i seriously got a little teary-eyed just then!
at least she wasn't sleeping with his dad, though.

and as for the end, WHAT? he's ben? lol. geez. this is so freaky!

LostFanatic said...

Whoa!!!!! Julia and Ben! We have real names! (or so it would seem)

kvonhard said...

I'm not even sure I know what to say ...

megan said...

wow..this is gonna be a great season! i'm so glad i got to share the premiere with you guys!! <33

Kimber said...

ben, brad or dad? What did she say?

LockeBox said...

Did he say Julia or Juliet? Because I'm pretty sure it was Juliet before, right? Or were they just using fake names in front of them?

LockeBox said...

Someone who taped it, use closed captioning on that last dialogue.

megan said...

i thought he said juliet...and i mean, ben was the guy she was yelling at in book club, soo..i guess that was him? although i didn't think so..lol. ughh. my brain is hurting!

Administrator said...

Her name is Juliet
Henry's name is Ben

kvonhard said...

Although, I definitely think the personal h*ll idea - with Lindeloff, Carlton and Cuse saying that their own personal search for spirituality falls square into the plot. The more I apply existentialism to the episode, it does make sense since so much of the show is about religion/spirituality. Locke = mysticism, Ecko = religion (Judeo/Christian), Jack = Logic over spirituality, Others = existentialism ...

sean said...

hanry gale=ben?
i dont know how to feel about that episode.
where's sayid, hurley, charlie, claire, locke, etc?

noblelawyer said...

i will miss the name fenry

Chelsea said...

He'll always be Fenry to me.

noblelawyer said...

remember, they said the first 6 episodes would focus on the captured 3

LockeBox said...

kvonhard - I like that, especially with the whole talk about the DI and how it doesn't matter who they were. Not just the loss - but the loss of meaning in - identity.

Although, as a side note, I did think it was interesting how in the very beginning of the episode, when Ben was sending Ethan and (I'm totally blanking on The Other that went to the Tailies), he used those names. So, Ethan's name was really Ethan Rom? That wasn't just a pseudonym he gave to Hurley?

sean said...

we still don't knw who mr. friendley is.
and a suburban community in the middle of the island? i hate to nitpick, but that seems a bit farfetched.

LostFanatic said...

LOL parlemer. I'm with you, he'll always be fenry

GhettoGumby said...

*cry* I wish this show was just a really long movie...I cant take the weekly installments anymore!

sean said...

at least we know
DI station 7 (at least i think its 7) is the hydra.

noblelawyer said...

o.k gotta go pack

LockeBox said...

I think we need to make "Fenry Forever" t-shirts a la "Save Joop".

sean said...

now we can call him BENRY!

Chelsea said...

sean - I agree. It had a bit too much of a Wisteria Lane feel.
