ANNOUNCEMENTS & THE COST OF LIVING - SEASON 3, EPISODE 5


ANNOUNCEMENT #1 - SPOILERS (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY):

Because there has been dispute over the definition of spoilers and much discussion about whether or not spoilers should be included in this blog, we have come up with the following clear and "final" standards that we now ask all of our commenters to try their best to adhere to as they post their thoughts on this blog. If you see commenters deviating from these standards, please patiently guide them to or remind them of the contents of this post.

LET IT BE KNOWN...
Comments containing content that this community has defined as "spoiler" material is highly discouraged on this blog. Please be very sensitive and thoughtful when posting in the comments not to include or allude to information about not-yet-aired episodes that fits the following description of spoilers.

  1. Contents of the US promo that airs immediately after an episode of Lost ARE NOT spoilers.
  2. Contents of subsequent US promos and/or Canadian promos ARE spoilers.
  3. Personal speculations on what might happen (based solely on past episodes) ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT spoilers.
  4. Contents of The Official Lost Podcast that mention already-aired actors/directors/plotlines/flashbacks/etc ARE NOT spoilers.
  5. Contents of The Official Lost Podcast that mention not-yet-aired actors/directors/plotlines/flashbacks/etc ARE spoilers.
  6. Contents of the ABC.com, AOL, and any other "Sneak Peek" scenes (often available on YouTube) ARE spoilers.
  7. Contents of non-ABC publications or podcasts (i.e. Kristin at eonline, Ask Ausiello at TV Guide, "Doc" Jensen at ew.com, LostCasts.com, etc) that mention not-yet-aired actors/directors/plotlines/flashback plans/etc ARE spoilers.
  8. Contents of The Lost Experience and inferences built off that content ARE NOT spoilers.
ANNOUNCEMENT #2 - ADMINISTRATION:
I would like to proudly welcome a new addition to The Lost Community administrative team. In addition to David (Administrator), Thrasher76, and Belly0fDesire, we have added Dennis to our team of blog administrators. Dennis will help us steer conversations towards the positive, answer administrative questions, delete any comments containing profanity or flaming,and edit the frontpage content in the case of typos or other errors.

Flapping in...

Dennis said...

Second!

Cam794 said...

third! w00t w00t!

Cam794 said...

hey congrats dennis!

Administrator said...

Okay guys, I worked hard on this all day. Tried to incorporate all opinions and positions. Tried to be as detailed and thorough as possible without going psycho. I gotta head out now but will check in again later tonight. Hope everyone is cool with the "definitions" and "standards" we've laid out. Hope it helps us feel free to stop having this discussion and to focus on the FUN STUFF!

Can't wait for the episode!

*poof*

LifeObstacle said...

Way to go admins! Spoilers are obviously a complex and touchy subject, or else we wouldn't need such a long definition. I hope that everyone, even if they disagree with the definition, will abide by our new community rule.

blueheron13 said...

Dennis,

Congrats on your promotion!

Two questions about the spoiler guidelines:

1. Why are there question marks after guidelines 4 and 5?

2. Based on the comments at the end of the previous post, I am wondering: Should we or should we not post comments that inform others when new info is available at a spoiler site (like EW.com)? Obviously, we shouldn't discuss anything from a spoiler site, but what about mentioning that something new is out there? Is that OK or not good?

capcom said...

Great work Admins, thanks for all your efforts. Congrats Dennis! Have fun.

Administrator said...

blueheron13,

1. refresh the page. The question marks should be gone. Copy & Paste error.

2. I think commenters should feel free to say something like this, "Hey, new spoiler info posted at spoilerfix.com. If you like spoilers, check it out but REMEMBER NOT TO DISCUSS IT IN THIS FORUM." I think you have to SHOUT the last part in all caps. Also, IMHO, if someone advertises spoiler info here, they should take personal responsibility for making sure nobody brings that up on the blog.

Okay *poof* for real.

capcom said...

I don't think that we have ever had problems with referencing sites with future episode or spoiler info, those are fun if one likes to see them. I do sometimes.

But some posters forget the spoiler guidelines and think that just because a site is mentioned, that the information is open for free discussion before the ep has aired, just so that they can be the first to post the info. Not kosher. :-)

That is the main spoiler problem that we've had this season.

blueheron13 said...

Thanks for the clarification. I am so looking forward to dropping the spoiler subject.

Dennis said...

Cam794, blueheron13, Capcom said...

Congrats on your promotion!

Thanks everyone. I really love this blog, and I'm glad I can help out in any way.

Cam794 said...

..............:********( i liked spoilers.........dam

Totengraber said...

Hey Y'all,

Happy Lost Day!

Nice avitars Dennis and Cam. One time I 8 a Bear!

Dig Y'all Later

LifeObstacle said...

So, without getting all spoilery, what does everyone expect to see in a few hours?

I hope we find out what the Others want with Jack, and I don't think they just want his doctor skills. I really believe they want him to be part of their group for the long run.

SunBruise said...

Hi everyone! Just got home and decided to see how everyone is. Man, only 2 hours left for me, can't wait!

SunBruise said...

One thing im going to have to be careful about is that im in Canada so when I watch it, I get the canadian promo so it's going to be a little hard to remember that not everyone has seen it.

blueheron13 said...

I think the Others will want Jack for his surgical skills, but I still can't guess why they would want Sawyer. I really don't think they need a con man. As Ben said, the Others view themselves as superior at conning. Maybe there is something in Sawyer's blood that they need? And he needs to be able to donate it willingly? Hmmm. I'm not sure that even makes sense now that I type it.

Cam794 said...

LifeObstacle- i think Mr.Eyepatch is Radzinsky it could be a past video not a live feed.

With Jack i think they just brought him there to help Benry with his tumor.

And dam hmm is the survivor death a spoiler well if it is REALLY SRY but i think Eko (since it is his flashback) or Sayid i dont kno y for sayid i just have a feeling

LifeObstacle said...

Sunbruise, Canada gets the episodes on the same day, right?

What about our UK friends - are they not able to participate at all because the schedule is different?

SunBruise said...

I think they will use Jacks surgical skills, Sawyer to con one of the castaways since the Others can't and Kate to make Jack and Sawyer to what they want since they both care for her.

Cam794 said...

sunbruise do you have a link for the canadian promo eh? lol.....eh

Cam794 said...

LifeObstacle-the uk wont see it fopr another 2 weeks according to lostpedia

SunBruise said...
This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.
SunBruise said...

Lifeobstacle- Yeah, canada's is on the same day but its on one hour before the US.

LifeObstacle said...

Sunbruise, I think the others could con the losties. Once you con Sawyer you can con anyone.

Saywer is the type of guy that you'd want to keep close to you. He's the dangerous one. Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer, right?

But also, I think Locke is more dangerous than anyone thinks. The others should have snapped him up too.

SunBruise said...

Well i mean I know the Others can do it but it would be easier for Sawyer since he know them, like what they did with Micheal.

Thrasher76 said...

Congrats Dennis!! Welcome aboard!! If i did not work so much, I know I did before, I could do more and add more. I have ZERO access to a PC at work and and I have a ton to get accomplished. Moving closer to work in 2 weeks, and getting married in a month!!! But I still read up and add when and where I can. Enjoy the episode tonight all!!

Shameless plug: Many have asked that I create a myspace page through out the experience, well, I finally broke down and made one. Don't get all excited it is heavily Transformer realated, mainly because I did not know what else to make it, but when I do it will be more about me.

My page is at Thrasher76.

SunBruise said...

And I honestly think Locke is the most danerous person on the island, but he doesnt really show it. Eko is pretty danerous to though.

Thrasher76 said...

Errr, sorry it has been awhile since I posted html here....try it here, Thrasher76

Thrasher76 said...

I give up!!

maven said...

Big congrats to Dennis! You deserve it!

Thanks to David for spelling everything out in detail. Hopefully, this has been put to rest finally!

Looking forward, as usual, to tonight's episode. Keep hoping more and more answers will be given....LOL! See everyone who's left after the westcoast feed.

LifeObstacle said...

Re: Eko, anyone who can stop Smoky in his tracks is a force to be reckoned with.

SunBruise said...

One thing I still dont understand is how in season one in did Smokey rip up the pilot? Its just a cloud of black smoke right?

SunBruise said...

Oh man, I dont know if I can take it. I found a site that says that they know who is going to die, it is so tempting to read but I do nt what it spoiled!

Cam794 said...

yo thrasher add me!

LifeObstacle said...

Sunbruise: Don't do it! It's just a few hours! You can make it, we're here for you!

Cam794 said...

SUNBRUISE TELL ME PLEASE WAT IS THE URL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SunBruise said...

Im not going to look but dont say or give clues as to who it is if you choose to read it, the site is Humpys.net.

Totengraber said...

I hope it's Pablo or Nekki. There not suppose to be there!

Cam794 said...

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG


i can not beleive it and i wont until i see it with my own eyes man im mad at my self now......crap now im regreting that

LifeObstacle said...

Cam, I was burned by some of those last season. Take it with a grain of salt. Might not be right. (But if it is correct, I want to know, after the episode airs.)

Cam794 said...

Was the thing with Michale and Libby absolutly nowone knew about that right? cuz evry1 seemed REALLY surprised about it.

Cam794 said...

aweman im about to cry........:*(.............man

SunBruise said...

Please! stop talking about! I dont want to get ideas and theories based on your reactions!

blueheron13 said...

Well, I'm flapping on out of here. See you tomorrow. I'm sure everything I will want to say about the episode will already have been discussed for many hours!

ib4uc said...

Dennis,
Congrats! Not to be picky, but the main page is kinda messed up. I think the word "Announcement" isn't lined up correctly and it has pushed everything in the right hand column down.

Dennis said...

Cam794, ... Did you read what the Admin said?? PLEASE, DO NOT DISCUSS SPOILER LINKS IN THE COMMENTS!

Administrator said... I think commenters should feel free to say something like this, "Hey, new spoiler info posted at spoilerfix.com. If you like spoilers, check it out but REMEMBER NOT TO DISCUSS IT IN THIS FORUM." I think you have to SHOUT the last part in all caps. Also, IMHO, if someone advertises spoiler info here, they should take personal responsibility for making sure nobody brings that up on the blog.

Please delete any spoiler posts. Thanks.

Cam794 said...

ITS NOT A SPOILER!!!! i never said who was going to die!

LifeObstacle said...

Yay Dennis, that's like your first official admin job duties post!

SunBruise said...

Ya but based on your reactions, you can get some idea.

Dennis said...

ib4uc said...Congrats! Not to be picky, but the main page is kinda messed up. I think the word "Announcement" isn't lined up correctly and it has pushed everything in the right hand column down.

Thanks. I don't see a problem in Firefox, it only seems to be broken in Internet Explorer. I'll see what I can do...

Dennis said...

Reposted from the previous comments...


For everyone with bad spelling (myself included!)...

The newest version of FireFox 2.0, has built-in spell check. It automatically underlines misspelled words as you are typing your comments. You can right-click the misspelled words, and it will correct them for you.

If you don't already use Firefox (instead of Internet Explorer), you should check it out. It is more secure than IE, has less pop-ups, and more features (and doesn't break the front page :)

You can download it here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

ib4uc said...

dennis,
Thanks! I figured since you're one of the head honchos now, you could fix it.

SunBruise said...

Yay! Go firefox, thats what I use!

Cam794 said...

An hour and a half!!!!! for us USA'rs

and ok ok i wont say anymore about some persons death ;)

ib4uc said...

Question about firefox... I'm currently running Explorer and if I download firefox, will I be able to choose which one to use?

SunBruise said...

Only 35 minutes for me, :). And I bet that they will end the episode with the monitor of the eyepatch guy.

SunBruise said...

ib4uc- Yes you can.

Crossfade said...

Hey, all. Sorry i've been gone for so long. My internet's been done for about two weeks now. BTW, congrats Dennis! I know you'll do a great job here.

SunBruise said...

Last post of the day for me, I never have time to comment after the show so i'll see you all tomorrow! Bye!

ib4uc said...

Thanks sunbruise. I'm so used to Explorer and never heard of firefox until about a month ago. I'm always kind of leary to download programs on my computer that I know nothing about. I will have to look into it -- it sounds like something I would check into.

1 1/2 hours 'til showtime!

Dennis said...

SunBruise said... And I bet that they will end the episode with the monitor of the eyepatch guy.

LOL! That would be awesome :)

Crossfade said...

Done=Down. I could use that Firefox spell checker.

Dennis said...

Welcome back, Crossfade!

How did you survive with no internet for so long???

ib4uc said...

dennis,
The front page looks fine now.

Crossfade said...

I almost didn't. By day three, I started getting cold sweats. Day seven, dizzy spells. And by day 12, I was having hallucinations of myself and Locke in a tent, eating a wierd silvery paste. Wierd stuff.

LifeObstacle said...

Dennis/Sunpatch, they would do that too. We've been spending days talking about it, so of course it's going to be right before the credits role. Darn them!

Cam794 said...

wait Inside the Experience is still up!!! and current wtf i thot it was just for TLE and thats it o cool i didnt know!

Administrator said...

ib4uc,
Did Dennis fix the problem? I've checked with 2 different browsers and on 2 different computers (Mac & PC) and don't see any problems. Sorry about that.

Cam,
Dennis is right. The issue isn't following the "letter of the law" but understanding and respecting the "spirit of the law". The idea is that you don't want to give away any sort of spoiler information in this forum. While you didn't share any specific information, your reaction to what you know may communicate more than you think. The more you freak out about who's going to die, the more we narrow down the list of people in our minds and the less fun we have watching the episode. Hope you understand.

Cam794 said...

hey crossfade wat do u think of my pic :) lol

Cam794 said...

ok admin I understand sorry if i spoiled anything for em :-/

Crossfade said...

I like it Cam: Very creative.

Cam794 said...

Crossfade said...

Thanks admin. I hated not being able to talk to you guys. I need my fix of the LoCo at least 3 times a week. I haven't been just completely absent of any LOST blog since the the beginning of TLE.

Dennis said...

Administrator said... Did Dennis fix the problem?

Yeah, I got it.

Cam794 said...

yea crossfade 1 time i was with out da net for like 2 months during TLE and i was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo lost (lol i said lost) when i came back

Cam794 said...

DJ DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!

ib4uc said...

crossfade... you need a fix only 3 time a week? Call me majorly addicted because I feel the need to check daily, if not hourly :)

Crossfade said...

ib4uc, its difficult for me to log on. Between High school, football practice, having to work a round the farm at home, church, homework, dsl problems, etc. I'm lucky to log on 3 times a week.

Administrator said...

Cam,
You're "I'm a Gold Digger" in myspace? I can't add you. You'll have to go to myspace.com/thelostexperienceclues and add me.

PastaKeith said...

Hey All... Looking forward to the after ep buzz, and sending my audio comment to the podcast. Enjoy the episode tonight!

By the way (NOT A SPOILER) I saw the goog at church last night, and HE was wearing an eyepatch. So... that's my guess about who eyepatch man is. (Not!)

SunBruise said...

Oh my god, this was a good episode, just got over for me.

Cam794 said...

(in nigerian accent) Hello John

Cam794 said...

sunbruise dont ruin anything even tho i already kno who dies

Cam794 said...

wtf wait now Julleit mite be lying but she mite be telling the truth.............hmmmmmmmmmmm so thismis rather confusing maybe she's with The Other Resistance like Alex...........

sean said...

all i can say is WOW.

Sayid'sgirl said...

So what on earth IS that smoke thing, weird.

kenshinfan65 said...

omg ahhhhhhhhhhhhh that was amazing
i know that one of my thearies was proven tho - the back smoke IS shape shifting to the surviveors memorries

sean said...

this just proves that no one on the cast of lost is EVER safe.

sean said...

and i guess the smoke can talk too.

kenshinfan65 said...

sayids girl - i think its nanites i got that idea from TLE game
any one else think so?

sean said...

maybe the smoke transfered into boone and yemi in the tent. it also probably burned the tent.

kenshinfan65 said...

sean - i dont think it was boone cus john did drugs to see him

Sayid'sgirl said...

I had a feeling that was a live feed in the pearl station. Desmond seemed interested in eye patch guy.

I honestly don't think that any one of them can be trusted I think they're all liars. I didn't at the begining of season but now I think I'm changing my mind.

sean said...

then the smoke probably was yemi though.
i dont know. im just thinking out loud.

but it explains all the hallucinations back to episode 1.
jack's father
dave
etc.

TheBookPolice said...

Remember the crossword Locke was doing way back in the beginning of Season 2? "Enkidu's friend"? Anyone know what happened to Enkidu in the Epic of Gilgamesh?

Well, if you saw tonight's episode, now you do.

Midnightstrider said...

So are we not allowed to talk about the episode at all on the comments now? I need a should to cry on!

LostinFrogurt said...

Wow, lots to talk about this episode! Going to be kind of hard with all of these spoiler rules!

Well, this episode was obviously about Eko and his sins coming back to haunt him.

I also think that -spoiler Mcspoilety spoil spoil spoiler- happened because he said -spoil spoiler- instead of repen--spoiler.

kenshinfan65 said...

yes deffenatly my thoughts, sean, them among other things

that "live feed" kinda looked like the swan to me any one else think so?

and when ben linus said "she looks like ur ex wife" whats up with that?

TheBookPolice said...

And our friend from the Pearl Station monitors might resemble a certain Utnapishtim. Hit the Wikipedia, y'all, and know that we've got our obscure literary reference for at least 50% of this season.

Cam794 said...

OMFG OMFG OMFG BEST EPISODE EVER!


R.I.P
MR. EKO

LostinFrogurt said...

OMGWTFBBQ CAM SPOILER ALERT!!!

kenshinfan65 said...

cam i love the new pic

sean said...

i dont mean to sound ignorant, but who was the eye-patch guy again? he looks familiar, i just cant place it.

Cam794 said...

frogurt:i thot it was the swan when the promo first came on

Cam794 said...

thanks kenshinfan!

kenshinfan65 said...

sean - i dont think we know yet but for some reason im thinking razinsky

Cam794 said...

yea my best gues for Mr.Eyepatch-Radzinsky or somwone weve never even met before and well he has a computer nad hes knows that someowni s watching but.......y did he turn off the camera?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh my gosh Sean you're right, it's been that smoke thing all this time. Wow.

Cam794 said...

its called The Monster

kenshinfan65 said...

cam - i dont think he wants them to know/realize where he is

sean said...

kenshinfan, we havent seen him before? okay. i thought we did.

Cam794 said...

wow but how can it pick up yhings its only smoke!

sean said...
This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.
LostinFrogurt said...

I believed that many things, such as mauled by bear Eko talking to Locke, were caused by the smoke or the monster. I've noticed that when Eko collapsed, the smoke escaped through his mouth and nose, as if until then, it had carried him to that spot. Also, when the huge smoke was gaining on him after he drank the water, I think it disappeared becasue Locke and the others were coming, not because Eko looked back.

sean said...

i guess it can morph into people, its not inconcievable that it could pick things up.

kenshinfan65 said...

cam - did u follow TLE?
one word, nanites. lol

Cam794 said...

OMG i almost forgot when Ben was talking to Jack I HEARD THE MONSTER IN THE HYDRA!!!!!!!!!!! did any1 else does this mean they have 2 of em? and im sure i heard it bcuz i asked my mom sittin rite nxt to me and she said she heard it to. so they either have 2 monsers or THERE ON THE SAME ISLAND!

sean said...

at least we "know" the smoke is nanites.

TLE wasnt a total waste.

oh2dc said...

Ok, so after watching this episode, I'm thinking the "smoke monster"/"security system"/whatever-you-want-to-call-it is working for/part of an as-yet-unseen group on this island, most likely made up of current/former DHARMA folks. This as-yet-unseen group, I belive, includes whoever left the cigarette burning the first time Locke and Ecko went to The Pearl in season2 and eyepatch guy who we've seen now.

Ecko told Locke the monster told him the rest of the Losties are next, but it had more or less left them alone for most of last season. Perhaps now that they've discovered Mr. Eyepatch the security system has been stepped up and turned to attack mode. Not quite sure what this all means. Thoughts?

And thanx for the shout-out on last week's podcast, admins :)

Cam794 said...

kenshinfan-yes i did but the producers (aka DL & CC) said that it wasnt but there probly lying

LostinFrogurt said...

I think that the smoke can't turn into humans. It can turn into other things such as the horse or the boar, but it can only possess humans, dead or alive.

sean said...

there is still the mystery of where yemi's body went.

Cam794 said...

but really did ANY ANYONE ELSE HEAR MR.SMOKEY IN THE HYDRA!

LostinFrogurt said...

No, I didn't hear it Cam.

Sean, maybe Yemi's body was missing because the smoke monster was possessing it?

Sayid'sgirl said...

kinshinfan65
The first time I saw Juliet I thought she looked a lot like Jack'sex.
I think they want him to feel comfotable with her,familiar that's why they chose her. They thought he would start to trust her because she'd start to remind him of his ex wife.
If you can believe Ben.

oh2dc said...

cam794, i don't remember hearing smokey in the hydra; i also noticed that the smokey/printer/whatever sound wasn't present when ecko was talking to his brother; i can't be sure i heard it just before that either, just after when he was attacked; anyone else notice this?

TheBookPolice said...

Radzinsky is the community favorite guess for the eye-patch man. But, as has been said already, we don't know for sure.

If he looks familiar, perhaps it's because (to me) he looked like Ron Perlman, of Hellboy and the Alien movies.

Cam794 said...

frogurt-yea maybe the Mr.Smokey went inside yemis body and took control but OMG wen the monster was like high up in the air before it grabbed eko DID YOU SEE HOW BIG IT WAS!!!! ITS FLIPPIN HUGE compared to the little glipse in The 23rd Pslam i think it can make it self bigger or maybe! it can split it self itno diffenrnt peices explaining the noise i head in the hydra and how small it is in some screens

Midnightstrider said...

I did not notice this at first, but my friend pointed out how, when Locke opened the box with the Pearl orentation film strip, there was a glass eye in the box with the film. Does this belong to Mr. Eyepatch?

What was with the whole Juliet-looking-like-Sarah thing? Did Ben think that would make Jack want to do the surgery more? Why does Juliet hate Ben so much that she wants him to die? Now that we've found out why Jacks there, why are Kate and Sawyer all caged up?

Ahh! So many questions!

sean said...

speaking of the hydra, we have to hope that benry doesnt find those que cards.

LostinFrogurt said...

sayid'sgirl, jacksex? lol

kenshinfan65 said...

i hate ben so much but i dont really like the others much either hmmmmmm idk i like the ones that r breaking away like alex and the guy in the cage *shrug*
but this patch guy
he does not want to be found out
he knows some thing
donno what yet....

oh2dc said...

on an unrelated note, wtf is with nikki and paulo?? can we just get rid of them? too many characters to keep track of already, and as far as i can tell they add nothing

Midnightstrider said...

Oh2dc - I agree! Paulo seems like kind of an idiot to me...

sean said...

nikki and paulo will probably be temporary characters like arzt.

hopefully, they wont have the same fate.

Cam794 said...

to me i call Alex and Julleit and who knows how many more The Other Resistance

LostinFrogurt said...

Think about it, cam. It doesn't require much education to know that gas can spread. It can be concentrated into a small space or thinned out into a larger one. That's probably how it works. But then again, maybe the omnster just resides outside of normal physics and logic.

kenshinfan65 said...

cam - can we say TOR for short? lol

minnesotawriter said...

Where can I torrent The Cost of Living???

oh2dc said...

sean, i hope you're right about them being temporary; perhaps they'll end up as sacrifices to mr. smokey

LostinFrogurt said...

Also, I think Eye-patch-man killed the camera because he noticed the blinking red light that goes on that is apparent in so many video sruveillance units.

Cam794 said...

kenshin yea we can call it TOR and frogurt well u never know ANYTHING can happen in lost as weve found out tonight RIP Mr.EKO

sean said...

oh2dc said...
sean, i hope you're right about them being temporary; perhaps they'll end up as sacrifices to mr. smokey

in lost, it never hurts to have expendable characters.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Alright lostinfogurt :)
I was just going to say sorry for the bad spelling and spacing. My cat jumped in my lap and I lost track. How's this Jack's ex better ;)

TheBookPolice said...

Reminder: the old episode threads can provide useful information. Bear in mind that Locke did not find the glass eye. The Tailies found that in the Arrow Station. The producers have said that the monster is NOT a nano-bot entity. They don't lie like that, so I think we can take that as gospel.

Where'd all the regulars from TLEC go?

Cam794 said...

but Y GET RID OF HIM he was my FAVORITE! y not like jjin or vincent OR AARON nowone that winey little thing waking all the lostaways in the night

oh2dc said...

cam, i'm also interested in how many others would be willing to rise up against ben; it seems like juliette is fairly well liked, from the attendance at her book club in ep 1 and in that she was able to bring in jack to help colleen w/o telling ben last episode;

at the same time, though, if a majority of the others were against ben's rule, why not just rise up against him by traditional means, or just wait for him to die or become incapacitated from the cancer... something tells me this is more scheming on juliette's part

Cam794 said...

thebookpolice-i was a regular and im still here im faithful in all my homies up in hea

Midnightstrider said...

sean said...

i was a TLE regular, and im still here.

TheBookPolice said...

kenshinfan65 - That's your call, but you're missing out on some good stuff. They are the ones that make the show, after all.

sean, cam794 - That's right, I remember you guys. The vibe is a little different over here, though.

I'm probably way off but I get the feeling eye patch guy is the one who was smoking cigarettes in the Peal Station last season.

kenshinfan65 said...

Cam794 said...

I don't know that they're the same guy, necessarily, but I believe they're definitely connected somehow; As I said earlier, I think they're the ones who are controling Mr. Smokey, thought i'm not sure to what ends.

and btw, where could cigarette man have gone when we first visited the pearl? it didn't seem that big, so there must be some sort of hidden passages somewhere? and how/why didn't the losties notice the still-burning cig (or did they?)

kenshinfan65 said...

cam - i dont think the bathroom was shone bc its not important it was just inthere for comical relif

Cam794 said...

o i found out somthin about a black/white connection Locke saw a WHITE light and Eko saw the BLACK smoke monster.also

After Eko's death, the only surviving member of the Tailies is Bernard, excluding those who went missing and are presumed to be captured by the Others or dead.
Eko is only the second person to be officially killed by the monster. The first being the pilot.

TheBookPolice said...

From LOSTpedia, the producers (see, kenshinfan?) have stated that the cigarette found by Locke and Eko in The Pearl Station was still burning when they arrived. Perhaps Ol' One Eye isn't in The Pearl when they see him on the monitor, but rather just that he's not far away. Considering that the eye was found in The Arrow, and there's one hypothetical hatch between The Pearl and The Arrow, perhaps he's in that one.

TheBookPolice said...

Re: black smoke/white light...If Locke saw white light, then what Eko saw were the people he felt responsible for killing (which is why his response to Locke is "that is not what I saw"). Everyone sees the black smoke.

kenshinfan - There is an overall story arc already in place for the show. When the producers have given us something in the past, it's because they want us to know it. I don't think they've "leaked" anything that wasn't already bound to happen. But it's your prerogative.

kenshinfan65 said...

i never said anything about that stuff lol
but think about the blast door map how the hatches were kinda connected but werent all the way
maybe when razinsky was making this map he didnt want anyone to belive the hatches were connected

Cam794 said...

at the start of "The Cost of Living" (after the flashback in the teaser) a shot of Mr Eko' CLOSED EYE was shown, as opposed to the open eye shots used in several episodes. his closed eye could have been the sighn of DEATH

kenshinfan65 said...

bookpoilce - what with you just because i say i dont take anything not set in stone to heart that gives u grounds to start attacking me? what did i do to u?

Cam794 said...

maybe Mr.Eyepatch's hatch is The Flame?! hmmmmmmmmmmmm the producers did say the losties were going to find and explore The Flame is season 3

Kylelane said...

Ok, so we think eyepatch guy and cigaretter are connected, and they are not connected to the Benry others.

And also I've been feeling that there is something not...quite... human about the Benry others.

And we know there are two groups of others...

And there was that Wiz o' Oz reference last season...

So maybe the Benry others are like the "great and powerful Oz" - an apparition designed to generate awe and fear. And eyepatch represents a group that is like the man behind the curtain, pushing all the buttons.

So...is Juliette Glenda?

kenshinfan65 said...

yes!!!! omg i never thought of that
wow the flame lol i cant wait to see what the flame is all about and see more of the hydra

Cam794 said...

yea did every1 see the backround bhind Julleit during the que card sceen it was like a kitchen also i thot that cheese burger sceen was nice lol after being on an island for 71 days with out a cheese burger i think i would die also wen the losties had ben captive he said to locke "No cheese burgeres huh?"

kenshinfan65 said...

i just had a sickening thought
what if the survivers of flight 815 are only here to take us into a new group of ppl and then just have all 815 survivers die off
it makes me sad

Cam794 said...

http://www.lostpedia.com/images/c/c6/Mystery_Pirate.JPG heres the only limk to Mr.Eyepatch pic i could find can any1 enhance it?

kenshinfan65 said...

well i need sleep now
night all

Kylelane said...

bookpolice - you still around? could you enlighten me about the whole gilgamesh thing?

JGZ350 said...

Wow, was that vintage Lost or what?

Good evening all-

So many things to discuss regarding this episode, The Cost of Living, even the title is a bit forshadowing. I believe we have seen the flame and obiviously Mr. Patch is running the show there, btw, that's pure speculation on my part. Mr. Smokey can morph into a person now and talk, wow and it's extremely strong. Mr. Smokey was tossing Mr. Eko about rag doll style. I am so sad to see Mr. Eko cash in. Now I see why all the actors are like dying to read the next script to see if they buy it. I think nobody is safe on this crazy island, but that's what makes Lost so intense is that you never now who is going to cash in or what is going to happen.

Also, best line of the night goes to Locke, when he told Desmond - "Don't confuse coincidence with Fate" or something similiar to that. Remember that's what Mr. Eko told Locke when he was piecing the swan orientation film together in the swan.

That was a great episode and by far the best to date.

I'll see you in another life Mr. Eko. Too bad to see such a great character gone.

Kylelane said...

I'll miss Eko. He was such an intense character and yet so human.

Cam794 said...

Yes definatly the best lost to date..........hands down.......

Kylelane said...

Here's a thought for anyone still around - was Eko redeemed? Everyone else was. But he didn't go in for the confession. So...?

And that scene in the beginning as kids, when he was so afraid to go into confession. Why? Pure pride?

Cam794 said...

alright all im tired i need sleep after this riviting episode talk to you all in the a.m. night!

n.i.k. said...

thebookpolice:

I'm still around, but mostly lurking as things have stepped up considerably at my job + I'm preparing to move from Chicago to Portland, OR in December. Also, there's just so much *less* to talk about compared to TLE, or at least, what there *is* happens in one big burst each week, as opposed to the multiple instances we dealt with in the game.

Additionally, I feel very (ahem) lost so far this season. Things seem to point to the Others being either non-DHARMA or a mix of non-DHARMA and DHARMA folk, yet we've had nothing that strongly indicates either. And with Pirate Dude tonight, there's just **way** too much to speculate about and very **little** to help direct that speculation. I think I'll feel more motivated after I get to watch the mysterious mini-season as a whole, and even more so once we get what's supposed to be coming in the second half of the season. ;) It should be pretty clear by now that my primary interest is in the backstory and not the sordid little lives of the Losties. Come on, February!

I don't know, I still don't trust Juliet. What if Ben doesn't even have a tumor. Maybe Juliet faked the x-rays and it's all part of her evil plot to get rid of Ben and take over.
