The Incident - Season 5, Episode 16 - Encore













For those of you who don't know, the season five finale airs tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC. All TLC veterans and newbies are invited to re-watch, re-ponder and re-comment right here!

In the meantime, here's some new promotional photos to get you started.

More characters can be seen over at the Lost Media Photo Gallery, which is always my best resource for Lost photos.

Most of the main characters are posed in front of a plain gray background, so here's a look at the photo backgrounds used.

UPDATE: A couple more photos added - thanks to Black Swan for the photo of Sawyer!

First for Season 6!

memphish said...

And dang it I didn't mark for email. Out of practice.

Sayid'sgirl said...

OK I guess I'll be second. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh and nice post Melissa.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Thanks, Sayid's Girl. :)

And best of all, no WV!

Is anybody planning to watch live on here tonight? I think I might try to for at least part of the show. Mr. Mel and I finished our re-watch except for The Incident this weekend.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'll be here. I may be one of the few. Next week we'll all be here. Can't wait.

Erich said...

I feel like I just woke up from a long winter's (and summer's, and fall's) nap. Must be Lost time again.

Not sure how much I'll be around the site, but then again I always say that and I just can't stay away. Lost speculation is like some wonderful wonderful drug, which reminds me: don't do drugs.

Viva la Lost!

Takes a Village said...

Nice photos Melissa.I plan to stop by; especially if we get the enhanced version tonight.
Say bye-bye Hiatus baby.

maven said...

Great job, Melissa! TAV: I don't think it's enhanced tonight...no mention in the ABC press release. Even though I'm here on the west coast I'll be chatting here on this occasion! :)

Lisa said...

I'm here. I'll stay up and watch it. I can't chat while watching though. No more lap top. I guess I should put that up on the list of things we need again. it's getting long !

Amy Lynn said...

*is here but doesn't know too many of you!*

I'm watching The Incident now, as when hubby gets home I don't think he'll want to watch it, since we've seen it three times.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi Amy Lynn.
Welcome.

maven said...

Hi, Amy Lynn...so happy to see you here! You'll get to know the group in no time!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey memphish someone at LostARGs just posted the site where you got your avi. There were some nice posters on that site.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Alright popup video.

maven said...

Let me know if there's anything mind-blowing!

Just Thinking said...

Hi all- watching too. Poor Nadia! The pop up did say it was Ishmail who killed her.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know that surprised me.

Just Thinking said...

and Illana is recovering from burns in a Russian hospital- was that clear before?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I don't think so. I knew she was in a Russian hospital, but didn't know she was recovering from burns from an accident.

ObFuSc8 said...

Thought I'd pop over here and say hi TLC...

It's hard to believe but I've been mostly at the ABC LOST boards until this hiatus. DCaaPB pulled me over to LOST ARGs and I found the community their so generous and welcoming and wanted to keep those connections going after this last hiatus.

So I guess this is it...the end of our final hiatus.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi Ob
Glad to see you.

Just Thinking said...

What does it mean that Jacob takes the time to put the bookmark back in his book before he goes to save John? Is that just Godly detachment or a lack of compassion?

Scoutpost said...

Hey everybody!!! Lost just started up here in AZ. I'm hyperventilating I'm so freakin' excited!

...and having anxiety attacks knowing this is the beginning of the end :(

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey Scoutpost!!

Scoutpost said...

Hey SG! And welcome Amy Lynn and Ob!! Don't be strangers.

Sayid'sgirl said...

JT
If Locke is destined to survive, I guess there isn't any hurry to get to him.
I still bounce back and forth on whether Jacob is good or bad.

This being the final season is exciting and sad at the same time.

ObFuSc8 said...

I missed that bit about Ishmail...hopefully the enhanced ep will be up tomorrow.

I always assumed Ilana was in Russia in that scene (since the nurse spoke to her in Russian). Not sure that it matter is her injuries are burns (you wouldn't really bandage burns like that anyway). And that looks more like a field hospital than an actual hospital.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Please tell me that's not our spammer.

Just Thinking said...

Hi Scoutpost- hope you don't mind if we comment ahead? I'm surprised how they are explaining Jack's motivations. He didn't tell Kate the whole "count to five" story because of his Dad issues. He told Sawyer he wanted to blow the bomb because he wanted Kate- not because it was fate, because that is what Sawyer would understand. Very interesting.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hi scoutpost, Sayid'sgirl, JT!

Jacob's seeming nonchalance may just come from him expecting Locke's fall and the subsequent events. Since he knew what was about to happen, he wasn't shocked or rushed.

Sayid'sgirl said...

JT
I'm sure Scoutpost doesn't mind. That's how we post here. We all hang out before the show starts on the east coast and talk. Then the west coasters leave and come back later to discuss. They ususally pop in and post their thoughts on what they're seeing at the moment from time to time. Then catch up on posts later.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ob
I agree. He was waiting for Locke to come out the window.

Sayid'sgirl said...

In my thinking the only "one" leader on the island at this time is Ben. Since Locke is dead.

maven said...

Hi, Ob...glad to see you here, too! Yes, us west coasters have to stay away from here until we're done!

maven said...

Wonder what Ilana was involved in to get those burns. Obviously, she healed up pretty good. Wonder who had something to do with that? LOL

lost2010 said...

Are we back in the swing? I can't believe I missed The Incident. Looking forward to watching with you guys next week. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi lost2010!
The old gang is slowly coming back.

maven said...

Hi, Lost2010! Seems just like yesterday we were all here....NOT!

Sayid'sgirl said...

LOL maven.

Sayid'sgirl said...

maven
Next week you'll be able to watch with us east coasters.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hi maven! I will be with you all in spirit in Hawaii.

It's hard to tell "when" that scene with Jacob and Ilana occurs.

This part with Sawyer and Juliet is still so sad no matter how many times I've watched.

Sayid'sgirl said...

That was fun. Can't wait til next week when we all can be amazed by season 6.

christopher said...

One more week!

maven said...

SG: Apparently, we're only seeing the first hour on the beach! :(

Scoutpost said...

No worries here about posting....like maven said, we stay away when needed. I've been watching and getting kids to bed (one started running a fever this evening-bummer!) so I haven't been able to see the pop ups. But hopefully my Tivo won't fail me and I'll get to catch up in a while. I'm so excited to be back here again!

maven- are you all packed?
I sooooo wish I could've gone with you all.

Sayid'sgirl said...

maven
That's too bad. I'm sure the first hour will be well worth the trip.
You'll be twice as anxious to see the second half. :)

Takes a Village said...

Everytime I watch The Incident,it gets better.
The last promo looked really good.
The Greek tapestry reveals were new to me.The pop-ups I think were helpful,especially for the fans that don't follow the blogs.
Tuesday at eight;Don't be late.

Just Thinking said...

Hope you have a great trip Maven.

Well- it's late here and boy that episode wears me out. So great though.

Night all- will go to dream of more to come.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi TAV
Yeah there were some things in the pop ups I hadn't considered.
Don't worry I'll be here on time. Heck I'll be here early. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Night JT.

maven said...

@Scoutpost: Packing tomorrow!

Yeah, us west coasters have to stay away from out computers once the show starts on the east coast...we've learned to live with it, but doesn't stop me from whining about it every week!

Sayid'sgirl said...

maven
Maybe we'll get a few more west coasters in here this year for you to and scoutpost to chat with.

Black Swan said...

Hey, all that are still here.. Isn't it fun to have LOST back on TV?!?!?!? I'm so glad tonight was an enhanced episode! Does anybody know if someone transcribes and posts these pop-ups?

Don't worry, Maven. You know I'm a night owl.

I'm still watching and taking notes on tonight's enhanced episode..

Two quick things I've noticed so far:

I find it interesting that Ilana is in the hospital because of burns and then we see that she torches Jacob's cabin with Frank saying something like isn't that dangerous?

I've been noticing about shoes in my rewatches and it seems to me they made it a point to show Jacob's shoes as he sat on the bench waiting for Locke to fall and then.. next scene, (F)Locke is leading the others towards the statue and they make it a point to show his shoes (and IMO, they look like the ones Jacob had on) hmmm..

SG, I'm with you. I still don't know who's the 'good guy' LOL!

Maven, I bet you are soooo ready for your trip!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey Black Swan!
You know I stay up way to late. Not as late as you though. lol

I'm not sure if Jacobs meeting with Ilana is in the present or the future. I thought maybe the future and her injuries are from fighting the war on the island.

Black Swan said...

Yeah, you're not as bad as me, Sayid'sgirl.. LOL!

You make a really good point. We don't know if Jacob's meeting with Ilana is in the present, past or future. I guess I was looking at it as ironic that Ilana's in the hospital for burns (and yes, she sure healed up good) and then in the next step, we see her torching Jacob's cabin.. almost like wondering if this is something she does for him regularly.. torching things. idk

The way the writers have the episodes flow from one scene to the next can be either very telling or very misleading. LOL!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I just have a feeling a war or something happened on the island in the three years one group was in the '70s and the O6 was off island.
When Frank, Sun, Ben and MIB row over to the island it's a shambles. I don't believe Keamy did that. He was to busy running from Smokey. And I have a feeling to the Ilana has done things for Jacob before. Maybe part of it was to get Sayid to the island but I don't think that was the only think Jacob wanted help with.

maven said...

It's starting for me now. So cool to see it on the network live (even though I just saw it on my re-watch).

Funny how they note that Jacob is in command of the island.

Black Swan said...

Those are interesting ideas, SG.. hmmm. I guess I thought 3 years would make an abondoned camp look like that.. but the barracks looked even weirder, IMO. I think Jacob needed Ilana to bring dead Locke's body to Richard. Like they said, so he can see what he's up against.

Black Swan said...

Yeah, Maven.. it's great to have our LOST night back again, altho Wed will always seem like Lost nite to me.

I'm still watching the enhanced ep (on dvr) I keep pausing to take notes. LOL!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Black Swan
Probably, but I found Bram's wording interesting. He told Frank they were taking Locke's body to the cabin so they'll know who their up against not so he'll know what he's up against.
Of course I could just be splitting hairs again. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Black Swan
When you finish your notes let me know what they say at the begining about Jacob and the tapestry, please.
When I seen it was enhanced I started up my recorder but I only got from where MIB comes up to Jacob. Thanks.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Well my hubby will be home from work soon. So I'm going to have to go.

Black Swan said...

I'll get those to you, SG..

ObFuSc8 said...

Ilana speaks Latin (or at least we can infer that she does). She calls Richard Ricardus. Jacob actually goes to Ilana and asks for her help and she seems to recognize him, know him. While she got Sayid on A316, Ilana also seems to have gotten Bram and co. together and to the Island as well. She knows to look for Jacob's Cabin, recognizes what the piece of tapestry means and knows where the Statue is and how to get there. She seems to already know the Island.

How else would Ilana know all of that unless she's an Other from another time?

maven said...

Well, she sure seems to heal fast from those burns in the Russian hospital. But, if she has been on the island before and is working with Jacob...why wouldn't she know Richard?

Black Swan said...

That's right, ObFuSc8. She definitely seems to know the Island, taking charge and knows exactly what to do, what Jacob wants her to do and most likely asked when visiting her in the hospital. She could be older than dirt and just kept young by Jacob, like Richard says he is. She could be an other from an ancient time? LOL!

In the pop-ups it says that "The hieroglyphs on the column along with the statue of Tawaret, indicate that many different civilizations lived on the island over thousands of years"

They also say, "Jacob & MIB have a long history, the exact nature of their feud hasn't been revealed yet. the conversation took place over 100 yrs ago.. Jacob doesn't age"

Ilana didn't know Richard by sight, so if she had been to the Island before as it seems, it's been a lonnnng time, IMO.

ObFuSc8 said...

Yeah, but an Other from another time I mean either waaaaaaay back (even pre-Ricardus) or possibly the future.

Unless of course, there is a line of off Island Others where each succesive generation is brought up to learn all of Others 101 and Others knowledge is passed on.

Black Swan said...

I kind of like the idea of coming from the future, too.

Black Swan said...

@Sayid'sgirl: from my notes

Jacob is in command of the Island. He is weaving a tapestry which features and Egyptian Eye of Horus. The eye is surrounded by a sun disc representing the sun god Aten, a symbol of life and prosperity.

The opening scene takes place more than 140 years ago.. The ship in the distance is an early 1800's wooden sailing ship. Jacob & MIB have a long history, the exact nature of their feud hasn't been revealed yet. the conversation took place over 100 yrs ago.. Jacob doesn't age

The giant statue is a variation of Taweret, the Egyptian Goddess of protection, birth & fertility.

memphish said...

I'm glad everyone enjoyed The Incident last night. I saw a little of it, but not all. I'm working on cleaning off stuff off the DVR, so once Hubby got home for a meeting we took on Human Target.

Transcript of the popups

I haven't looked through these yet, but it sounds like they are interesting. I really don't like watching the episodes with them though. They are very distracting. I think I read somewhere yesterday that they are planning to repeat episodes this season as well, so there may be more popups in our futures.

6 Days!

BTW Maven -- have a safe and wonderful trip!

memphish said...

I see our spammer is back. Is there anyway to keep Anonymous from posting without having to resort to WV?

memphish said...

It looks like blocking anonymous is an option ML. Maybe we could try that.

Just Thinking said...

memphish- over at Lost Args they closed the thread to anon posters when things got ugly between the Argies and the E be'ers- you had to be there :) So only registered bloggers could post.


Does anyone know who writes the pop ups?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good Morning All

Thanks Black Swan for the notes.

I believe that Ilana is an ancient other along with Jacob, MIB and Ricahrd. Of course I don't believe Richard is as old as the other 3, and Ilana may be younger than Jacob and MIB.

What I've been wondering is why did Ilana ask for Richard and not Jacob? Unless Jacob told her if you don't find me at the cabin go to the statue and ask for Ricardus.

Bram also seemed to know about the island and the statue. He also knew about Miles and his ability. He told Miles if he didn't know the answer to the question he wasn't ready to go to the island.

I don't think the meeting with Ilana and Jacob is way into the future just post "war that is coming" future. I'm probably way off but I don't get the feeling it's 2007. For all I konw it could be 1954 or 1974. :)

As far as Ilana's healing abilities we don't know how much time past between her meeting with Jacob and when she went to get Sayid.

Also were they suggesting that Christain is the one who disturbed the ash?

memphish said...

For some reason I've always thought Jacob meets Ilana after Chernobyl. There's no particular reason I think that other than it's been a touchstone in regards to the treatment of the Swan after the incident.

Sayid'sgirl said...

memphish and JT
Wow I didn't even see the posts you while I was writing my book post. lol

Yeah our spammer was back last night too but only made one post. Zort disabled anon posting at LostARGs when people started bashing each other anonymously.

JT I guess you could call them interns, the people who write the popups. They have some people in the office write them up but Damon and Carlton said they weren't canon. Although I think the get it mostly right.

memphish
How is Human Target? I've thnking about watching it. TV guide seem to say it was a silly comedy.
Thanks for the transcript.

maven
If you haven't left yet have a nice trip.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Man I need some caffine. There's alot of word omissions in that last post.
It should be ...posts you made
I've been think...
and last but not least :)
Tv Guide seems...

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hey, everyone - sorry I missed the spammers last night. We got a new entertainment center yesterday, and I watched The Incident while putting all of our DVDs away. Whew!

I have switched the comments to registered users only. If anyone has trouble commenting, or if you see a spam that I haven't deleted, please send me an e-mail at thelostcommunity@gmail.com. Thanks!

memphish said...

Human Target is okay. The action sequences are quite spectacular, but I haven't really connected with the characters yet 3 episodes into it. It's brainless and fun, though not as fun as Burn Notice, and it's something the Hubby and I can watch together. For now it's on our schedule.

24 on the other hand is off mine. I just don't like any character on that show and as a result I cannot ignore how incredibly contrived the plot is. The only part I've enjoyed this season is how much one of the bad guys looks like Lester from Chuck. There's too many other things on Mondays for me to worry any longer about whether or not Jack Bauer will save the day and survive, cause guess what it's 24, he will.

bigdog said...

lester from chuck..very funny i know exactly who your talking about.

human target - brainless/fun - perfect description but its not even in the league of burn notice.

the incident - i have long been a fan of sawyer, and i am not to macho to admit that the scene with Juliet at the end just gives me the warm and fuzzies.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Sawyer's sob after Juliet falls is just gut wrenching - almost as bad as Sun shrieking when they leave Jin behind on the freighter.

Here's a question I had forgotten about until last night - what is Frank a candidate for?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks memphish for the review.
Although since I'd have to record it and watch it later I'll probably pass on it.

I was going to watch 24 when it premiered but 9/11 happened and it got pushed back. I was watching so many shows that year that when it did come on I'd forgotten about it until it had been on for awhile and never got into it. I tried watching reruns on late night but couldn't follow it that way.

Hi bigdog.

Amy Lynn said...

I like 24, even though, yes, it's very formulaic. You know what's going to happen roughly in 4 hour time periods. :) Still, Jack Bauer is badass.

Sayid'sgirl said...

melissa
I'm wondering that too. Apparently Miles might be a candidate too, since Bram asked him the question.
Maybe a candidate for war. Or re populating. :)

Takes a Village said...

Maven,enjoy your trip,and take lots of photos. ABC Lost has put the enhanced "The Incident" up on their site if anyone missed something.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks TAV. I was thinking they might. Glad they did.

bigdog said...

Hi, Sayid's Girl.

and safe travels Maven.

im glad the president got that whole speech thing worked out to not mess with our premier.

Frank is such an interesting character. not offense to the pilot from heroes but if big frank was flying he would have landed flight 815

memphish said...

Sayid's Girl - if you have On Demand from your cable or satellite provider you might check if it has Human Target. Mine doesn't, but yours might. My DVR has become so overloaded lately I'm glad for the things that do exist on On Demand like The Good Wife and the USA shows.

As for Frank being a candidate I'm going to guess it's to replace Richard as Island consigliere. I think Ilana held that position in the past and that she like Richard also doesn't age. Consider if the first of many harebrained theories I'll fling up here this season. :-)

memphish said...

I do have a TV recommendation though -- Caprica. You do not have to have watched Battlestar Galactica to understand anything that's going on, and unlike BSG it's not set in space, rather on an earth-like planet with technology that's more advanced than ours. (Which reminds me I want my robot maid like Rosie.)

Caprica's pilot aired last week and it looks like it's going to do the things I liked so much on BSG and in LOST in terms of exploring large themes like race, religion, terrorism, technology in a very interesting manner. I definitely give it two thumbs up.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Thanks for the info on Caprica, memphish - I have it on my DVR, but I haven't watched it yet.

memphish said...

I've watched the Pilot twice now -- once on DVD months ago and again this week. I think it's really good. And it features Colleen from LOST. Though she's much more likable than she was then.

maven said...

I enjoyed Caprica, too, Memphish. Adding it to my growing DVR list! :)

ib4uc said...

Hey Locos. Catching up on comments. I've been gone too long... it's good to be back!

Sayid'sgirl said...

memphish
My cable provider has On Demand. It's a pay service isn't it?
I've heard of Caprica but haven't seen anything about it. What network is it on? If it's HBO or one of the other pay channels I canceled those after my son moved out. I wasn't watching them that often and it saved me some money.

ib4uc nice to see you again! Welcome back.

memphish said...

Some On Demand services do cost money, but many are free. The menus would tell you which and most make you double confirm before buying. For example, on my On Demand I get CBS shows for free but NBC charges $.99.

Caprica is on SyFy and is created by the same people as Battlestar and shares some writers with BSG as well.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Something else I re-noticed last night - the Others live in tents in the jungle until Ben takes over, and they move to New Otherton. Then, as soon as Ben loses power, they move back to the tents, and are still there when FLocke and Ben return three years later. I wonder why?

Also, why do some of the buildings in the barracks appear to not have been used since the Purge? Specifically the "check-in" building - when Sun and Frank show up, the sign is hanging off of it, and photos of new recruits from the 70s are still hanging inside. Did the Others just ignore this building, or is there some kind of time change in affect there?

Amy Lynn said...

@Melissa, we know that SOME Others lived in New Otherton. There's no real evidence that Richard lived there, right?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hmmm... true, Amy!

Amy Lynn said...

Do we know of ANY Other who a) predated the purge AND/OR b) wasn't DI (like Ethan) who lived in New Otherton?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Not that I can think of - but I think that Eloise, Charles and Richard are the only pre-purge Others that we know by name. I'd be interested to know if there are other Dharma people who survived (like Ethan). Did they join the Hostiles ahead of time, or were there people the gas just missed who were given the chance to live if they agreed to obey Ben?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Melissa
I think Ben moved them in to Dharamaville after the purge. Maybe it made him feel superior or maybe because he knows the tunnels are under Dharmaville. I’m not sure. MIB as Locke asked him whose idea it was to move into Dharmaville and said it didn’t seem like something the island would want.
I think once Ben was no longer leader and John had disappeared they went back to the way they had always lived.

My wacky theory is that there was a war or something that happened to cause such destruction in the 3 years the Losties were in the ‘70s and the O6 were of the island. Another possibility could be smokey. I don’t think we were ever shown the “sign in” station other then during the ‘70s maybe it was a building that wasn’t used by Ben.

I think some of the DI joined Ben along with Ethan. Then Ben recruited people to the island. I’m not sure how “happy” the island was with that.

memphish said...

The Others appropriated the US Army tents in the 50s so appropriating housing isn't out of the usual for them. Why let it go to waste? I would guess they didn't go back to Dharmaville in 2005 because it would be too depressing what with the carnage and Alex's body. At that point I guess they reverted to yurts and caves.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm not sure how many of Ben's people that lived in Dharmaville were Others from Widmore's reign if any.
I think Richard and the rest of the Other's lived in the jungle.
Not sure why though.

Zort70 said...

Hi all, I've just seen the Radio Times (TV listings) for Friday in the UK.

It's all getting scarilly close.

Zort70 said...

Living in the tents and Dharmaville could be another instruction from Jacob.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi zort
Welcome back to this side of Lost blogging.
Will you be here after watching Friday then?

LotteryTicket said...

Hi all, not sure where to post. Watch YouTube released today: at the 3:34 mark LOST goes animated! and we are directed to watch "Dave"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9pKbJpE8AA

Zort70 said...

Where else would I be :-)

I'm kind of sad that my day job is just about over for now, but I'm also a little relieved.

Amy Lynn said...

@Sayid's girl... I think the ustream isn't working because several of the posts that say they were authored by LT are in fact, not. It's people having a good time.

ChrisL said...

Just been reading through all the great comments here and I see Amy has come over and then I see Zort hanging around so I figure, if it's OK with you guys, it's time for me to join in!

Amy Lynn said...

@Chris, I figure this place is a *safer* place to be this weekend, LostARGS may be full of stories of dramaaaaaaaaaaaaaa in Hawaii, LOL!

ChrisL said...

You may be right Amy ;-) Having just said Hi however, I'm going to sleep but hope to see you all tomorrow.

memphish said...

Everyone who might spoil over at LostARGs knows we have a no spoiler policy here right? I'm pretty scared about getting on the internet after the Beach event. Too many bloggers post spoilers in headlines. I don't really want to stay away for days, but I'm considering it.

Capcom said...

Hi LoCos! Great thoughts about last night's replay. I thought that the pop-ups were helpful in some spots, but leary of trusting them too much.

LOL Obfusc8 about the hospital, but if the Soviet Union was still in play, it might be a real one in a poor area.

I like Human Target so far, it's probably more "guy humor" but it's techy and the main guy is cool, he's from Fringe I believe.

Right about the spoilers Memphish, I hope that no one gets crazy here like elsewhere. If anyone asks before they post spoilers (hopefully!) they can be told about the rules the Dennis posted in the "Leave Your Comment" bar here below. For some reason newbies don't notice that it says "read the spoiler rules" there. Perhaps a notice can be displayed at the top of the front page stating no talking about the beach premier show until after it airs on TV.

maven said...

I believe most of the gang over at LostArgs are spoiler-phobic. But we can never say it enough: TLC is spoiler free! I'm sure Dennis or another Admin here will stress that in the Premiere Post. Hint, hint.

So happy more and more great people are showing up here from LostArgs. Zort: Welcome back to being a regular poster with no Admin anxiety!

Leaving tomorrow around 2pm pst (staying overnight at LAX). Flight is Fri. at 8:40AM and should arrive in Honolulu at 12:30pm. Staring at my luggage 1/2 packed...becoming more real that I'm really going to be there!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Zort
That did sound silly. I guess what I was trying to say was you won't be discussing until Friday.

Hi LT and ChrisL welcome over.
memphish as maven said the ARGers know we're spoiler free. But it wouldn't hurt to maybe post a reminder for anyone new who might drop in this season.

Capcom said...

And maybe even do that anonymous block, at least for the premier ep. Then there won't be any wise-@ss hit and run spoilsters blowing through for the fun of it.

Sayid'sgirl said...

capcom
I'm not sure but I think Melissa already blocked anonymous posting. Our spammer came back.
Someone coming here and spoiling us would stink. Especially after the great community we've had over the years.

Capcom said...

Oh no. :-o

One of the things that convinced me it was cool to come over here was that it appears that Melissa has blocked anonymous users. We learned over at Lostargs that that makes such a huge difference to the community.

Good Morning!

Capcom said...

G'day LoCos! Things are usually very polite over here, but with the bleed over from the ARG there might be some wild nosehairs here for a while until they get bored and go some place else where they get more of a reaction to their trolling.

ChrisL said...

@Capcom, I seriously hope there won't be much of that. It has been pretty calm over there other than on days of a print sale.

Capcom said...

Agree, Zort was able to calm the waters well at LostARGs, especially after the anons were omitted from the scene.

bigdog said...

i couldnt keep up with the Lost Arg this time. but it sounds like it got a little out of hand.

this is by far the nicest place to discuss LOST.

ChrisL said...

bigdog, I hear from many over at Lostargs what a great place this is and I'm looking forward to sharing S6 with you all. In defense of Lostargs though, the core community over there are some of the finest people I've had the pleasure of spending time with. J hope many will come over as I'm sure you'll enjoy their company too.

maven said...

Hope the two core groups of great Lost people merge!

bigdog said...

i believe that about Lostarg, i know the few times i did sneak a peek i recognized a lot of names from here.

LostARGs became a multicommunal group. It was one of the few places that was putting alot of time into the Lost Art project. We have memebers from Lostpedia, The ABC forums, STV and probably others along with some TLCers. They created the nice group of people it became. And they're all welcome here.

maven said...

Jorge posted a very funny video called "Answers". Very good, and I think they covered just about everything we'd like answers to! :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

That's too funny. Thanks for the link maven. I'm going to have to check Jorge's blog more often.

ChrisL said...

That's hilarious Maven. Aren't you supposed to be heading off somewhere btw?

Amy Lynn said...

@ChrisL, it's only Thursday morning in Hawaii. I don't think any of the festivities start till midday Friday.

maven said...

Leaving shortly for a LAX (not LA X) hotel to overnight for a early flight Friday AM. Land around 12:30PM. First event is dinner at 7PM. A lot of people did leave today and it's fun following their tweets as they travel to Hawaii!

ChrisL said...

lol Amy. I'm trying to keep on top of multiple time zones!

Travel safely Maven. Golden Arc around you as you fly.

I'm also looking forward to discussing the episodes here with the ARGers, it will be fun. Not much longer to wait.

maven said...

Up @ 5AM on our way to LA X & Hawaii!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

maven
Have a safe flight, and a nice time in Hawaii. Keep us posted.

Amy Lynn said...

Fly safe, maven! Don't mention 815 to the pilot!

Zort70 said...

Is it time to get excited yet ?

Sayid'sgirl said...

zort
Yes, yes, yes!

Is anyone going to watch the promo that's suppose to air during Desparate Housewives Sunday? It's suppose to have Season 6 footage.

Zort70 said...

If it is like the usual ABC Intern spoil the plot promo's, I'd watch with hands near my ears ready to stick my fingers in, just in case.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good point zort. I don't usually watch the show so I'm going to record it. Then I'm going to spend 2 days deciding if I'm going to watch it. :)

ChrisL said...

Sayid's girl, right now I don't think I can stop myself taking in anything and everything I can find.

Maven is on board and about to be joining those already on the ground in HI.

Nerderific has tweeted that Damon, Carlton, Eddy, Adam &Liz are all onboard his flight and en route.

Too exciting for them all.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Just seen an ABC Lost promo and the had the video running backwards in it. Sawyer going back into the helicopter the freighter un-exploding etc.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Sayid's Girl - that promo has one new shot from season 6 in it. If you visit This link to Dark UFO you can see a still of the shot - I've seen the promo a couple of times, and I've yet to catch this shot just by watching.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Melissa
Really. I didn't know that. I've probably seen it before but just didn't pay that close of attention. I watch ABC daytime so I see alot of ABC promos including Lost.

I'll have to take a peek at Darks. It's not too spoilery is it?

Melissa_Lossa said...

I wouldn't consider it too spoilery - it's a shot of a character that you already know appears in this season, so it doesn't really give anything away.

And speaking of spoilers, ask and ye shall receive - NEW POST!

BarbaraJay said...

Hi, locos! It's great seeing everyone here, along with some new lostarg friends. This is exciting, isn't it?
