Dr. Linus - Season 6, Episode 6


Oh, Ben... how do we love thee? You're sneaky, devious, you get some of the best one-liners and you're just downright adorable in a sweater vest.

We also love you for the description of tonight's episode:

Ben must deal with the consequences of a lie.


Ben? Lying?! Get outta town.

Oh, Lost - never change.

Almost time!

Amy Lynn said...

My mother taught me.

Ange said...

Enjoy!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi Ange.

maven said...

Enjoy the show everyone! Catch you all after it airs in PST!

Capcom said...

Aw, professor Ben with a kewpie haircut. :-) Tx for the new post ML, funny.

Oh, thanks Amy for the offer on the previous thread. Oh well, I had to go lie down on the heating pad, I guess I might as well wait and see the answer now. :o)

Ihlonewolfxx said...

Hey guys, as promised I'll be more active from here on out, Can't wait for tonights episode and thanks to all you guys who came to read my "Pulse of the Press" Blog over at InfinteHollywood.com. Promise I only plug it once tonight lol.

http://www.infinitehollywood.com/2010/03/pulse-of-press-spider-man-robocop-and.html

Sayid'sgirl said...

Well we know how the pop ups are but it said Kate and Sawyer have been recurited. Along with Claire and Sayid.

Ihlonewolfxx said...

Funny I feel I know some of you guys just from lurking here the last couple of years even though I rarely post. This THE DEFINITIVE Lost family lol.

Black Swan said...

present and accounted for!!!

Dedjezter said...

Hey folks... gearing up now.

Hey Amused, do you have cablevision? Were you almost as mad as I was... lol?

And Kate???

Ellen said...

Here!
xxoo

Black Swan said...

SG, I'm still iffy on Kate and Sawyer, but I noticed that in the pop-ups too

Capcom said...

What was that second part that the popups said about kate seeing Locke? I blinked and it was gone. Tx.

Black Swan said...

Poor Ben, still not appreciated

Kat said...

oh crap haha arzt again.. i hate that man

Capcom said...

Wow, it's the dude from Ghostbusters, etc.

Kat said...

and john....

Black Swan said...

sorry, Capcom, idk

Sayid'sgirl said...

Cool!

Ihlonewolfxx said...

Anyone else notice that the popups aren't always spot on correct? Sometimes their info is a little ..... off?

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol uh -oh

Black Swan said...

So, Miles can only pick up what's in their mind right before they died.. nothing more. I wonder if that's like Flocke knowing what the real Locke was feeling at his death.

Whoa.. this is getting weird ..

oh, oh... LOL, Miles!

Black Swan said...

So, Jacob says Ben killed him. hmmmm, must be the other Locke

Just Thinking said...

I'm surprised that Miles can read ashes- I thought he couldn't read for the father who lost his son because he was cremated.

Black Swan said...

ROFL.. you make friends easy, dontcha?

Black Swan said...

Roger workman?!?

Dedjezter said...

So Dharma still happened in the FS... hmmm

Capcom said...

Wow, this FS is freaky.

Black Swan said...

all it would take is one match...

Alex!

Sayid'sgirl said...

This is really interesting.

Dedjezter said...

What if the Kwon in question... is the child?

Kat said...

only 6 left.

Black Swan said...

Ilana's there to protect the candidates.. and not doing a real good job. Only 6, hmm, Hurley, Jack, Sawyer, Kate, Sayid, Sun/Jin?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Richard!!

Capcom said...

Yahoo, RA! Bout-time!

Black Swan said...

finally, Richard!

anybody catch that book title?

Sayid'sgirl said...

oooo It's getting good!

Black Swan said...

crazed look in Ilana's eyes!

Kat said...

oh man ben is going to die soon!? thats insane

Sayid'sgirl said...

Book looked like it said Choice or choices. Not sure.

I looked away at the last pop ups too capcom.

Capcom said...

Wow, Ben's FS is so interesting!

Black Swan said...

SG, i'll check it in my re-watch, thanks.

wonder who alex's mom is and who's the school nurse?

still talking about that 3.2 million.. ooo, 8 million in diamonds w/ nicki and paulo

Dedjezter said...

nice... ***** and ******'s diamonds... lol

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh. Snap.

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol Hurley

Ihlonewolfxx said...

diret\cted by Mario Van Peebles anybody carch that juicy tidbit of info? lol

Black Swan said...

Yes, Black Rock!!!

Kat said...

oh mann now alpert needs to die... after all of those years?

Dedjezter said...

Whoa... Richard... Whats the deal kid?

Sayid'sgirl said...

DIE!!??

Black Swan said...

whoa..... amazing!! I hate commercials!!

Capcom said...

Cruddyduds! What the heck is up with RA?!

Black Swan said...

He's releasing himself from the deal he made with Jacob? the deal to keep himself young?

Capcom said...

LOL Ded. :-D

Sayid'sgirl said...

I need commercials to catch up on the blog. lol

Just Thinking said...

The book was The Chosen.

Black Swan said...

Jacob and MIB both make deals, both manipulate

Kat said...

I HATE THAT MAN.

Black Swan said...

thanks, JT

Takes a Village said...

First real sideways connection mention by Roger.
Ben better say MIB kicked Jacob into fire before he died.
Good to see old friends again.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hi Locos!

Yup...he said DIE!

Wondering if the Nurse is Annie or Juliet (though I couldn't see either character doing that in the audiometry room, even in the FS)

Kat said...

stupid arzt. I also need the commertials

Dedjezter said...

I'm on a horse... flashback... lol

Sayid'sgirl said...

Is he really going to die?

Black Swan said...

just the idea of having power corrupts

Kat said...

what does FS stand for?

Kat said...

lol ded itll happen i have a feeling! i hope we get that commertial

Ihlonewolfxx said...

"The Chosen" was the name of that book btw, I'm a few minutes behind DVR and all lol

Sayid'sgirl said...

Really Jack? He still annoys me.

Capcom said...

Didn't Jack pay attentino, they can stop him by NOT doing anything, heheh. X-D

Just Thinking said...

Jack wants answers!

Capcom said...

Kat, 'FS' is shorthand for flash sideways. :-)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Kaat
FS is flash sideways

Black Swan said...

I want answers!! LOL!

ObFuSc8 said...

Sorry, FS= flash sideways. Thanks for answering Capcom.

Kat said...

thanks guys i dont know how i missed that official name decision haha

Black Swan said...

ROFL, just got that, capcom..

Just Thinking said...

Interesting that Jacob was hoping Ben would choose differently. That's the take I took on that scene at the time.

Capcom said...

Does Jack know that jacob touched him so he's not worried about dying?

Kat said...

Jack is an idiot. most of the time.

Black Swan said...

whoa... Jack = total faith

Capcom said...

Wow, just like Mike's gun!

Dedjezter said...

Jack suddenly has a sense of humor... didn't see that coming... lol

Sayid'sgirl said...

LOL

Capcom said...

lol2

Black Swan said...

LOL to the hundredth!!

Capcom said...

Get'im Dr.Ben!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ben hasn't changed much in the FS.

Black Swan said...

Get the feeling this is how Widmore got kicked off the Island? (like what Ben's doing to the principal)

Kat said...

jack did have total faith there..

Black Swan said...

Another test of Ben to save Alex or not

Capcom said...

Aw, wadda sleazeball. Poor Alex.

Capcom said...

Wow, awesome answer, Ilana! :-o

Sayid'sgirl said...

Awww That's the first time anyone wanted Ben.

Kat said...

yeah i liked that answer from ilana too!!

Just Thinking said...

I think you have it exactly SG. Wow.

Black Swan said...

surprised in a good way with Ilana.. smelling an Emmy for ME again.

ObFuSc8 said...

Jacob is dead, so what made the fuse on the dynamite go out? Sure the dynamite and fuses are pretty old but it looked good to go...

Capcom said...

Darn Emerson, makes me tear up every time he gets going. :'-(

Dedjezter said...

Don't worry Sayid'sgirl... she'll regret it.

Hurley is always the one to crack me up on this show.... but the delivery from Jack of "You want to try another stick" made me bust a gut.

Takes a Village said...

Ben making his choice.
Richard hasn't been back to The Black
Rock since he got there;"first time in all these years"

Capcom said...

Maybe it proves that alive or dead, Jacob's purposes or plans are still viable?

Sayid'sgirl said...

JT
I always thought Jacob wanted Ben to chose not to kill him too.

Amy Lynn said...

Holy, crap, ME.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I may be proven wrong in the FS and Ben based on what just happened. But he's still an opportunist.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hmmm, I guess the same "force" that's still preventing Richard from dying?

Kat said...

wow i like FS ben.

Black Swan said...

choices, choices, if made with love it's the right choice .. still got a reprieve from detention duty thrown in

Sayid'sgirl said...

I don't know if I can take Ben being a good guy.

Dedjezter said...

You go Myles... ha ha ha

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol Miles has the diamonds

ObFuSc8 said...

WHOA...sub...WIDSY!

Black Swan said...

Wow, this is what I've been waiting for.. it feels like Lost again this season FINALLY!

OMG, submarine. Widmore!!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Widmore!!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Charles Widmore, WHAT?!

Capcom said...

Oh no, I'm scared for next week! :-O

Sayid'sgirl said...

Awesome episode! But no promo!?

Kat said...

wow i guess Widmore can get to the island now. and is going to distroy it maybe?

Capcom said...

Yeah, didn't we know that SOMEbuddy was gonna get those diamonds?! I didn't guess Miles tho! X-D

Amy Lynn said...

That was super. Promo looked good, too. I'd have more, but that was really emotional for me.

Just Thinking said...

Here's Amazon on The Chosen-"this exploration of fathers, sons, faith, loyalty, and, ultimately, the power of love."

Black Swan said...

Widmore told John Locke that if he didn't go back to the Island the wrong side would win.

I've gotta watch that again

Capcom said...

My station showed a shorty promo SG.

Capcom said...

Tx, JT!

Black Swan said...

Thanks Just Thinking.. I've always said I'd be ok with Lost as long as the end message was the power of love.

Takes a Village said...

Guess who's coming to dinner?
This time Ben didn't sacrifice Alex.
All we need now is that Jin/Sun reunion.

Kat said...

wow next week is going to be nuts!!!

Just Thinking said...

Didn't someone here say they were expecting Widmore- maybe 2costa?

Black Swan said...

Just saw in the pop-ups, this is the first time Kate has seen the resurrected Locke and she knows he's on the wrong side..

I thought for sure Sawyer would end up with those diamonds.. LOL!

Amy Lynn said...

JT, Jay and Jack spoiled that Widmore was gonna show up tonight, so it was just a matter of time.

Melissa_Lossa said...

So, is Widmore the person Jacob was leading to the island?

Is it possible that Des is with him?

Black Swan said...

I think it would be nice if Widmore can just have the Island back and then maybe everyone can be happy and be where they want.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm going to have to rewatch the end. I wasn't really looking at the tv but all I got was a few images of characters and words in between as always and Sawyer saying something like we're going to get off this island/rock. IDK

Dedjezter said...

Black Swan said "I thought for sure Sawyer would end up with those diamonds.. LOL!"

he still could... lol!

Capcom said...

Yes, it was quick and fairly ambiguous.

Capcom said...

Aha, thx Blacky for that last line of the popups!

Amy Lynn said...

I thought Nestor Carbonell really brought it tonight, too. The scene between him and Fox was excellent.

Capcom said...

I'd just like to say again (and most surely not for the last time) that I really enjoy watching the show with you all every week. :-x

Black Swan said...

Ded, yep, you are right about that.. LOL! It's not over 'til it's over.

My take without watching it again yet in the promo: Sawyer telling Kate, "You and me are gettin' the hell off this Island." or at least he's telling someone. In my mind Sawyer is still not totally believing Flocke and the pop-ups confirmed Kate isn't really following him either. idk

Melissa_Lossa said...

Yeah, I'm really feeling for Richard this season. Poor guy.

Black Swan said...

you're welcome, capcom. It just happened to be at the beginning of my dvr recording. And may I also say it's been a pleasure watching with everyone here and I'LL MISS IT!!!

Just Thinking said...

Richard is at least willing to go back with Jack to team Jacob though, and Ben is allowed back too. They did not come back due to any deals either.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yep it's been a pleasure for me too guys. Glad I found you all.

Takes a Village said...

I think the fuse went out because Jacob snuffed it out with his fingers.Hurley would have seen him if he wasn't about a mile away.

Amy Lynn said...

I'm beginning to think that Richard, Dogen, etc. all made deals with a man who called himself Jacob, but who was in fact MIB.

Black Swan said...

Selfishly, (and being a former teacher myself), it was fun seeing this episode with Ben as the teacher, underpaid, under appreciated, a bit of an idealist but still human with visions of grandeur.. Also nice that they are showing how important the people behind the kids are. I hope they show later that Alex becomes a great scientist and cures cancer or something.

Amy Lynn said...

@Black Swan... maybe FS Alex can cure the sickness? :)

Just Thinking said...

Amy Lynn- I said earlier that I was always hoping we would see Richard taking orders to commit the purge from MIB, and call him Jacob.

Takes a Village said...

The pleasure is all mine Loco's.
I can't believe all of those people who don't even watch this awesome show.

Amy Lynn said...

@JT, that would be a super scene, and I bet you're right.

Black Swan said...

LOL, TAV.. yeah!

Just Thinking said...
Richard is at least willing to go back with Jack to team Jacob though, and Ben is allowed back too. They did not come back due to any deals either.

Nice catch!

Love it, Amy Lynn!

Ihlonewolfxx said...

didn't we all already know that it was Widmore or Penny/Dez who was coming? And yeah Emerson is AWESOME! Wonder what he's gonna do next after Lost is over? He should get some great roles from the Lost Heat!

Sayid'sgirl said...

lonewolf
I think we assumed, but we didn't know. Unless you're talking about the credits. Which I don't read. :)

Capcom said...

I agree, I've always thought that sometimes the Others thought that they were talking to Jacob, but were really getting intercepted messages from MIB. Somehow. Maybe.

Yeah, or have the awesome Lost friends now too, TAV!

Just Thinking said...

Haven't kids been Ben's soft spot in all realities? Probably due to losing his mother- "sometimes I feel like a motherless child"- that's Ben. So fitting that his redemption would be in saving a child.

Black Swan said...

I feel like finally there's some hope here with the scene of Jack, Hurley, and Richard all coming around the corner to join the rest at the beach camp.. felt so good, felt like old times.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah, He chose to save Alex this time.

NewtonsGrubby said...

Sorry something happened to my IHLoneWolfxx acct.....grrr Anyway I saw Emerson on Kimmel and he claimed to have some great scenes coming up with Terry OQuinn, figured they'r be tonight but alas....

NewtonsGrubby said...

I was really hoping Sawyer was done with Kate.... (hate her) but the promo I saw had him smiling at her and saying " We're gonna get off this island for good..." Was really liking Sawyer and Juliet....

Just Thinking said...

Somehow I see Jack in the F/side catching up with Claire, and that leading him to Kate. Sawyer and Juliet going Dutch. I don't know that anyone is getting off the island though.

Amused2bHere said...

Dedjezter: I got FiOS, so the Cablevision vs ABC standoff didn't affect me. I'm glad to hear it only lasted a little while, but you know you would have been welcome to come on over and watch LOST with me and the family tonight ;-)

I was hoping that Miles would hear Nikki and Paulo. Did he say they were buried alive?

I'm glad Ben's FS showed him as a decent guy. Maybe not the Man in Charge that he was on the Island, but a decent fellow who takes care of his elderly sick dad, teaches for the love of it and really cares about the students. Ben didn't sacrifice Alex this time. I wonder how he got the Principal to agree to at least some of the terms...like no detention duty. I guess he finally got some respect, if not all that he was looking for. After all, he can always use those emails anyway after Alex goes off to Yale..hm?

Wow does this mean we've seen Ben's redemption? uh oh...

Anybody else jump up and cheer when you saw the periscope "I KNEW the sub wasn't destroyed!" ??
lol

Black Swan said...

Hi, Amused! I certainly did jump up and cheer seeing the sub thinking I KNEW it wasn't destroyed!! LOL.. and yeah, Ben seems redeemed now. Time will tell, LOL!

JT, kids are a soft spot for so many of them, really, and may prove to be involved in all their redemptions. Kate found her redemption in loving Aaron enough to do the right thing, Sawyer couldn't con those ppl when the little boy showed up and was in charge of Aaron when Claire disappeared, Jack was scared of being a father, but rose above it in his FS finally resolving his father issues with his own son, David, Hurley would give double airline dinners to Claire when she was pregnant, Jin gave Claire the fish that made Aaron active again after the crash, Sun and Claire had a lot in common and Sun would baby-sit Aaron all the time, Locke didn't want the son of Cooper's current con to get hurt. I think they will all finally get together in the end to help Claire. It seems to me Claire and Sayid are the only ones who really have the sickness right now? Sawyer is still weighing things that Flocke is showing him, but likes the idea of getting the hell of the Island so he's 'following' MIB right now. Kate will join that group of Smokey followers, but I think she's the one who will talk Sawyer into splitting off of that group. I'm not talking about some big Skate revival here, but I think Kate will convince him to think of his daughter, Clementine, and what kind of a person/dad a kid needs to look up to and what kind of Dad only thinks of himself? Hope Kate and Sawyer are the ones who come back to the beach camp next week!

Amused2bHere said...

ew I just had a creepy thought...what if Sawyer ends up with Cassidy, they have Clementine and Juliet is their ob-gyn...and that's why Juliet and Sawyer go dutch for coffee?

ew
ew
EW!!

Black Swan said...

Amused2bHere said...
I wonder how he got the Principal to agree to at least some of the terms...like no detention duty.

Ben very cleverly through that in while they were right in front of Alex.. LOL, great stuff there. I think what Ben finally got was some self-respect. Appreciation doesn't always have to come from outside sources. It's not easy, but the best peace is in knowing you do the right thing and outside appreciation isn't necessary, then. But it is nice to get once in a while.

Takes a Village said...

At first I thought FS Ben would say "Well I guess that means I'm out of the History Club".I'm glad that worked out for him too.

Black Swan said...

Amused, I hope you're happy now that my coffee is all over my keyboard... and NO I don't think that's gonna happen!

Black Swan said...

Good one, TAV. I hadn't thought of that. I actually thought tonight's ep was going to be really corny, but I loved it. The thing with Jack and Richard was really something, too!

Black Swan said...

oops, amused.. I meant Ben very cleverly THREW that in while they were right in front of Alex.

Takes a Village said...

I've got sheep to count.I know there will be plenty of new comments when the late shift arrives.Good night all.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Night TAV.

Amy Lynn said...

Interesting that so far, the people on Jacob/Ilana's side (Ben, Jack) are redeemed in the FS, those on MIB's side (Sayid, Kate?) not so much. Not sure what to make of Claire.

Just Thinking said...

Need to mull things in sleep too. Don't know what to make of Locke being the one to urge Ben to stage a coup. Maybe just the way to put Ben in the situation where he needs to choose?

Amused2bHere said...

...still hoping Locke takes Jack up on his "nothing's irreversible" statement.

Jack has made the full journey to faith. wow. And I thought we'd never see it!

LostIt said...

A few things really stood out for me in tonight's episode.

1. Jack is very much a man of faith now.

2. The power of grace brought Ben back from the edge of the darkside when Ilana said "I'll have you".

3. Ben chose Alex over power in the F/S.

4. Widmore! (I was really hoping Desmond would show up, though. Maybe he's with him?)

What a fantastic episode. What a different feeling it left me with compared to last week. Last week I felt despair after the destruction in the temple. This week I felt hope.

I was a little disappionted that we didn't get more detail about Richard's past, but what was hinted at is probably all we're going to get. Maybe the popup show next week will expand on those visual hints.

I do have one question though. How did Miles know about the diamonds? Did Nikki and Paolo tell him?

LostIt said...

I'm just now wathcing the popup Sundown episode. The popups make a point of discussing the book Dogen was reading. Dark River.

I wonder if that book is significant to the story line.

LostIt said...

I wonder if the reason Miles is on the island is so that he could be a post-mortem witness to Jacob's murder.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good Night All.
Looks like everyone's rewatching or just thinking about it. :)

Just Thinking said...

About Miles and the diamonds- he could find out just by walking over their graves couldn't he?

Amused2bHere said...

my guess is that Miles has been having "conversations" with the departed in the graveyard since they got there. he knows more than he's letting on! (I don't buy the "it doesn't work that way" nonsense.)

LostIt said...

I just noticed something while watching Sundown with closed captions turned on. I never knew all the lyrics to "Catch a falling star and when Claire was sitting in the pit and singing that song the lyrics came up in the captions.

"For love may come and tap you on the shoulder..."

Remind you of anyone?

LostIt said...

Dogen couldn't have been on the island for very long if his son is the same age as Jack's son David in the FS in 2004. I wonder how Jacob brought him there? Was it by sub before Locke blew it up? Was he on Oceanic 815?

maven said...

Just finished! Widmore/Sub! Nice Ben! Love it!

Catching up now.

LostIt said...

Ben talking about Napoleon and how the loss of his power was so devastating to him was quite fitting when you consider how important power was to Ben on the island and how he felt about being exiled/losing his power.

LostIt said...

Locke in the FS seems to have the same confidence as Flocke. Could there be more to the word substitute than origianly thought? Does MIB take the real John Locke's place in the FS? The way he persuades Ben to go after the job as principal kinda sounded like Flocke convincing his recruits to go after what they want.

Amused2bHere said...

Lostit...perhaps there is more to the "substitute" than meets the eye, but my thought is that Locke in the FS has accepted his present condition, and is at peace with himself. This gives him a confidence that most people don't have, and i think that is what we are seeing here, not MIB in the FS. Confident people inspire confidence in others.

just mho

maven said...

Also feel like we're one big family here at TLC!

Just some quick thoughts:
Ben teaches about Napoleon on Elba island and how he wanted to keep his power. On our island there is a power struggle.

Ben's FS also has Alex in the middle of things. Alex's last name is Rousseau...so I gather Danielle is still around. It is nice to see Dr. Linus as a caring teacher, but he is still lusting for power (although to make things better). However, he does seem to know right from wrong and when Alex is in the cross hairs, chooses the right way to go. He must of somehow still blackmailed the Principal enough to keep his History Club.

Dr. Artz is still a no-it-all!

Didn't know that Miles could read Jacob's ashes. Thought he needed a body.

Interesting that Dharma was still a real thing in the FS and that Ben and Roger were there and left.

So Ilana protects the candidates...not doing a great job, is she? So there are only six left that she knows of...doesn't realize yet that Sayid is claimed.

I think we got enough of Richard's story. It does seem that he originally came on the Black Rock since he says he hasn't been back on it in years. And Jacob's touch gave him a "gift". What gift did Jacob's touch give our Losties? Richard calls Jacob's touch a curse.

Flocke offers Ben power (you can be in charge of the island when we leave). But Ben has finally learned that the island isn't the most important thing anymore. Alex taught him that, and Jacob didn't even care about her. So now we have a "nice" Ben.

The scene at the end with Jack, Hurley, Richard meeting up with the others on the beach was reminiscent of when Jin, Sawyer and Michael came back with the Tailies.

Widmore in the sub! Guess he's the one Jacob was talking about.

This is getting pretty darn great!

LostIt said...

maven, I didn't think about Danille until you mentioned her. Now you've got me thinking.

I wonder how Alex and Danielle got off the island? Maybe they were never there? I guess Alex wouldn't have been born yet when everyone evacuated for the incident (which I assume is when Ben and his father left the island in the FS).

But then again, Danielle was a French scientist. How did she get to the States and why isn't she earning enough money as a scientist to pay the rent? (Alex said her mother was working two jobs).

LostIt said...

Amused, you're probably right. It's just a vibe I got from rewatching that scene.

Scoutpost said...

Seriously, LOST writers are genius, this show is brilliant!

Michael Emerson did such a great job, had me all teary eyed...pls give him another Emmy. That FS was beautiful. Wonder what Flocke is gonna do when he learns Ben has gone back to Ilana's camp. Me thinky he's not going to be too happy. And it scared me to death when the ticka ticka sound came around while Ben was grave digging and then all of sudden Flocke was standing right behind him...I jumped. I'm a scardy cat.

Maybe Ben and Juliet will be together in the FS. He can bake her another ham and she can bring the rolls....:)

So now that the candidates are touched are they all not gonna age now like Richard? cool- I think?

re: the Kwon's...well Jacob did touch both of them, so are they both candidates?

Everytime they show Richard I just feel so bad for him, he's so lost and dissheveled...so un-Richard like. And, I guess we got our answer about Richard...he DID come over on the Black Rock. Who says they're not answering any questions?!!

I don't like the idea of Widmore coming back to the island.

I don't know who to root for...I just keep thinking all is not what it seems. The idea that Richard took orders from MIB, thinking he was Jacob (like Amy Lynn and JT were saying) really would blow my mind! Richard did seem to know who he was talking to though when Flocke came out of the statue, so you'd think he'd recognize the real Jacob...but who knows?

Ok ya'll don't start singing "Thanks for the memories" just yet. We still have a couple of months left. I have enough things to cry about after that episode, don't make me think about saying goodbye yet!

LostIt said...

What Flocke tells Ben sounds counter to what he told Sawyer. He told Sawyer that the island is just and island and doesn't need protecting. He told Ben that after he and his group leave someone needs to be in charge of the island. (I think this is why I thought FS Locke sounded like Flocke when he was telling Ben that he should be in charge of the school) Why would someone need to be in charge if it's just an island that doesn't need protecting?

I think this is a prime example of how MIB is using whatever people want as bait/temptation in order to recruit them.

Scoutpost said...

maven said...The scene at the end with Jack, Hurley, Richard meeting up with the others on the beach was reminiscent of when Jin, Sawyer and Michael came back with the Tailies.

It reminded me of the scene when Juliet first came to the camp along with Jack, Kate and Sayid.

maven said...

ABC: Please stop telling us how many episodes are left! We know!!!

Scoutpost: Michael Emerson was fantastic tonight. His scene with Ilana was so touching as he realizes that power is not everything and he has made the wrong choices.

Flocke obviously knows where the "other side" is on the beach. What is stopping him from wiping them out?

Black Swan said...

Amused2bHere said...

Lostit...perhaps there is more to the "substitute" than meets the eye, but my thought is that Locke in the FS has accepted his present condition, and is at peace with himself. This gives him a confidence that most people don't have, and i think that is what we are seeing here, not MIB in the FS. Confident people inspire confidence in others.just mho

I agree with you, Amused!

Hi Maven! Great observations as usual. you said..
Dr. Artz is still a no-it-all!
I would go one further and say he's the type of teacher who blames the students for not learning something rather than look to his own lousy teaching skills as being the problem.. LOL.

"So Ilana protects the candidates...not doing a great job, is she? "

I was thinking the same thing.

"Richard calls Jacob's touch a curse."
Yes, and I've always thought that he feels 'stuck' in this time 'gift' that he got from Jacob. I think he's the perfect example of 'be careful what you wish for' and who wants to live forever anyway? I think he may be wrong about not ever finding out about Jacob's plan, though. He may be seeing it being played out right in front of his eyes right now.

"This is getting pretty darn great!"
Yep!!

This is getting pretty darn great...I think I may be physically ill when this is all over.

BS, RE the "love tapping you on the shoulder" lyrics... I was taling about Jacob - His touch was a gift and he tapped Hurley on the shoulder and told him to get on the Ajira flight? Does Jacob represent love?

If so the violence of his followers didn't reflect that. They were pretty eager to kill our Losties before he found out they were candidates.

Thanks Black Swan! I'm not sure that Richard had any choice in the matter when Jacob touched him. Do you think Jacob told Richard that he can make him immortal in exchange for something (like reviving Dogen's son)? Do we think all our Losties are immortal now?

I felt really bad for Ben at the beach reunion. Everyone else was hugging and Ben was standing off to the side by himself looking a little dejected. For some reason all I could think of was the "farmer in the dell" song -"And the cheese stands alone..."

Black Swan said...

Lostit... Thanks, I see now what you mean with those lyrics. I'm not so sure love is represented by Jacob or not, but I think love (even of oneself) will be the key to the end of Lost. At least I hope so!

Hi scoutpost!

"So now that the candidates are touched are they all not gonna age now like Richard? cool- I think?"

I don't know, but it sounds more like he made a 'deal' with Richard, kind of like MIB was talking about making deals. To me, both Jacob and MIB are manipulators. It's up to them to find the truth inside themselves

"It reminded me of the scene when Juliet first came to the camp along with Jack, Kate and Sayid."
me too

"I don't like the idea of Widmore coming back to the island."
I think it's great and a big thing that needs to be resolved for Lost. I want to see Ben and Widmore end up on the same side and after tonight, I don't think it's impossible anymore.

True maybe Richard made a deal, but he definitely made it clear that Jacob gave him a "gift" when he touched Richard and we know who he touched of our Losties...so they had to receive whatever the "gift" was too. So then, what was the "gift"? I agree that both MIB and Jacob are manipulators. We just don't have the whole story yet.

I realize that Widmore needs to come to the island and that it will be good for the story...I just don't want any more of my fav Losties to get hurt! ;)
