Happy Lost Day!

Lost Media has a title up on their opening page that sounds spoilerish. . .I'm not sure if it really is since I didn't read the whole article. . .but just thought I'd let you guys know so you wouldn't be drive-by spoiled. However, if that is a spoiler, I am really really looking forward to tonight's episode.

memphish said...

Happy Lost Day! Enjoy since there won't be one next week.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Man, my fantasy league tanked last week! Probably because Hurley was my only character who actually showed up in the episode!

Next week actually works out perfectly for me - I have a work event I have to go to next Wednesday night. :)

I plunged over a thousand places in the LFL this week. I thought Having Abbadon I would get some positive points this week but I also have Ben who went on a killing spree.

Melissa_Lossa said...

memphish, thanks for the Ack Attack link! Best line:

Widmore: BENJAMIN?? If Benjamin were an ice cream flavor, he’d be Pralines and Dick!

*snort*

I'm really pleased that Locke more than broke even in the episode he died in. That was unexpected. I kept thinking his death episode would banish me to the bottom of the bottom. But I actually came up a few spots this time.

Go Locke!

lost2010 said...

If your spoiler tolerance will allow you to see the episode title, I recommend reading G-mans precap of the episode in the LFL standings post. It gave me a chuckle and did not leave me feeling remotely spoiled. The episode title is less revealing than "The Life and Times of Jeremy Bentham" but you could still get a hint from it I suppose if you're more perceptive than me (which is most everyone).

Ellen said...

Hi ya'll!
Happy Lost Day!!!!
I am really anxious to see tonight's episode...
I put a new poll up about what questions everyone would like to see answered during this season...
I hope you'll stop by! I'm testing a new poll application...

I've been thinking about the "war to come" mentioned by Widmore. If the war is between Ben and Widmore, how is the outcome influenced by Locke's presence on the Island? Would it be because he might actually have a conscience (sp?)
Also, I really think that there is so much more to the temple than we've ever been led to believe. I think it all boils down to the fact that whoever controls the Island, controls the outcome of the war because of what might possibly be IN the temple. What do you guys think?
xxoo

Ellen said...

email...:D
xxoo

Zort70 said...

I've said before, that I really hope the temple isn't some James Bond style, high tech, underground lair.

I'll be really upset if I've spent 4.5 seasons with a vast city of underground dwellers beneath the island.

Ellen said...

LOL! Zort! :D

Ellen said...

I wanted to say, I don't think is high tech - but ancient tech. Sort of along the same lines as the FDW (from what we could see of it anyway.) I also think that the ancient civilization that built these things were from Earth, not aliens!!! Essentially, I agree Zort, it would be a very big letdown (not to mention, very mundane) to have it end in aliens and dwellers from below!
xxoo

Capcom said...

Oh awesone Zort, I never thought of that!! Yeah, it's some kind of leftover missile silo of Hanso's and there are a bunch of nondescript jumpsuited technicians (or Morlocks) manning the controls in a cave, and there in the middle is the big giant super-bomb-missile (Jughead Jr.)! And Locke and some bikini-clad chick knock them all out one by one and dismantle the bomb. :-D

Capcom said...

What/where is Lost Media Lost1020? You mean the gallery site? I didn't see anything there. Tx.

maven said...

Happy Lost Day!

Here'sa very good article about Locke's character and Terry O' in the LA Times. Nothing spoilery.

Zort70 said...

See you all on Sunday, I'm going to find a boat on the beach and paddle round the island until I can see myself and then try and shoot my paddle.

Capcom said...

LOL! I bet your guess will be correct, what a mind-bender that would be! In Dan's notes: "Note to self, do not shoot at you." :-D

Ellen said...

*that's so funny! 'Do not shoot at you..'*
xxoo

lost2010 said...

capcom - I guess it's the homepage of lost-media before you get to the gallery page. And I think there may be some pics from tonight's episode at the top of the gallery page too. So, be careful.

Fenris said...

Happy Lost Day all. :)

Capcom said...

OK, thanks Lost2010, I've got the gallery page bookmarked, I'll backtrack the address and I'm gonna look! :-o

Hi Fenris!

lost2010
I only have one queston,why is Dan wearing a tiara? lol 8-)

So far I haven't seen the title of tonights episode. It it lasts it will be the first time this season. :)

memphish said...

I know many of us have speculated that Ben knew 815 was going to crash, but I'm finally connecting the dots that Ben wasn't surprised by 815 arriving because young Ben of the DI is going to know people from 815, right? And the more I think about it, I think Ben is the one who has been trying to change fate just like Desmond did repeatedly with Charlie. That's why the 815ers that are now part of the O6 and LBs were not on Jacob's list and weren't taken as part of "the good people." Ben was trying to change things by not protecting them and hoping they would all die on the Island after 815 crashed to prevent them from doing whatever it is they now have to go back and do in DI Days. Now whether or not Ben is doing this of his own choosing or because Jacob or someone else told him, I don't know. And maybe like Desmond Ben has finally concluded he can't prevent whatever is the equivalent of Charlie's death that he's been trying to prevent, thus he's now "helping" the O6 get back. Or maybe he is still trying to thwart things and that's why he killed Locke.

Happy Lost Day.
Those behind the scene photos were nice.
Congratulations to Detroit Blue Herons,and the new leader board for Lost Fantasy League.
Maven,you are moving on up.
Ellen,thanks for that poll.

Melissa_Lossa said...

capcom - I think that at some point, Lost Media split into two sites - Lost Media and the Lost Media Photo Gallery. If I recall, it had something to do with server space.

sayidsgirl - I don't know why he's wearing it. But I couldn't resist the picture, it makes me smile.

Capcom said...

Tx Melissa.

Re: tiaras, I just saw a pick in this month's Lost magazine where some of the girls are all wearing tairas and mugging around, but I didn't read the caption. Dan must have gotten his from that shoot?

Capcom said...

Heheh, I just got an email from Rebel about Primatech, I'd forgotten that I had signed up for that Heroes list so long ago!

Amused2bHere said...

Happy Lost Day, Locos!

Ben trying to change things...now "that's an interesting theory!"

maven said...

Capcom: LOL...I've been getting those emails all along and keep wondering why I just don't care!

Capcom said...

Yeah Maven, I have no idea what's going on in that story even though I watch it every week! I just like all the fun stuff they do all the time, and I appreciate the effort that TPTB put into it to make it funny and to look so good. But if I had to explain the story to someone, I'd be clueless. :-B

Twinkle said...

Hey, all! Happy Lost Pop-ups. They just confirmed that the Crashers are on the Hydra.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Yeah, and it was Ben's office that Ceasar was searching.

Okay, is it just me, or did they cut a whole scene out of this episode? Where Ilana asks Ceasar what he found, and he hands her the flashlight?

Twinkle said...

Yeah, I didn't see that either! They just confirmed that Widmore's motivation is to get to the island.

Twinkle said...

Widmore and John met for the first time in 1954. Calculate away!

Twinkle said...

Puts Widmore at 71 and the time he left the island around 1984, if what he said is true.

Penny could have lived for a long time on the island then before they left. Or she could have been conceived on one of Widmore's off island excursions.

memphish said...

If Widmore wants to get back to the Island he sure is going about it a strange way like not going on the Freighter or using Mrs. H's pendulum. I think Widmore's real purpose is not to get back to the Island, but rather not to get exiled from it in the first place. I think he's thinking the 815ers now back in DI Days are going to do something to stop him from being exiled. Maybe that's why he didn't want Locke to die. He wanted Locke to warn him not to believe Ben.

memphish said...

Hey Capcom and other LoCos of Science, check out this.

Twinkle said...

Oooh, it only says that Ben told Sayid that Nadia was murdered by Widmore. That could mean A) Nadia is still alive or B) Ben killed her himself. Also it confirmed that Sayid was killing Widmore's people.

Twinkle said...

Funny cat!

Micheal did die.

Walt says that the people on the island with Locke will want to hurt him. Does that mean Ilana and Caesar.

scoutpost said...

Well I stopped by this morning to say Happy LOST Day, but apparently the post didn't make it, so....

Happy LOST Day!

Guess the time is getting close for the east coasters.

Sayid'sgirl said...

This episode ran 6 minutes over. They'll have to cut a little out.
They cut something else out but I forget what it was. Something with Widmore.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I just noticed that Locke is wearing a name tag with Jeremy Bentham on it.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Do we actually ever see Locke tell any of the 06 (or Walt) that his name is Jeremy Bentham? How did they all know? He doesn't say it to Walt, but Walt definitely told Hurley that Jeremy Bentham came to see him.

Also, why has Abbadon only gone to visit Hurley? Why not the other O6ers?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah I was wondering that last week. Where did Abaddon need to get Hurley too and why?
Locke told Sayid his name and where he'd be staying. I guess were to assume he did the same with the others.

Melissa_Lossa said...

But we see his encounter with Walt from start to finish, and he never says it to him. *shrug*

Black Swan said...

hey, everybody! Happy Lost Day!

I like this!

I'm betting yes!

I came up quite a few points in the Fantasy League! But I'm still not that great (codysmom/ came up to 2421 from 3940)

True Melissa. hmmm
