What They Died For - Season 6, Episode15

Tonight, while Jack's group searches for Desmond, Locke comes up with a new plan.



Since there were no promotional photos to be found for tonight's episode, we're honoring our own Romeo and Juliet, Jin and Sun. Whatever they died for, it better be good.

Whoo hoo.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm here and ready to be amazed.

Scoutpost said...

Yea! Maven and I are here with you east coasters! Of course this is actually so early I'll have to get dinner on the table first....;) But excited to chime in with you guys.

@Capcom- brutal- I know! I saw a youtube video today where someone put to music all the LOST deaths. It was quite violent! Especially when you have it all in a 6minute clip!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey Scoutpost! Glad you'll be here too.

Black Swan said...

Hi! It's great to have scoutpost and maven here for the live showing (east coast)!!

Takes a Village said...

Welcome Ladies.
Romeo,Romeo;Wherefore art thou Romeo?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh man - I just teared up at the promo. It's going to be a rough night.

Scoutpost said...

It's great to be here, even though we can't actually see what's going on, we'll have to chime in based on what you guys comment on and on what we remember.

Black Swan said...

Scoutpost, so you won't be watching, just seeing our comments? LOL, that could be funny!

did I hear something about an enhanced Pilot?!? Is it this Sat?

maven said...

I'm here! I'm here! True, Scoutpost, hope I remember every detail and know what you guys are commenting on! (I know I missed some dialogue at UCLA...bad sound system).

TheOtherLisa said...

Woah... I didnt' even have the title before now... this is hopefully good! And again with the neck!

Black Swan said...

Jack opening his eye! wow, that blood on his neck is worse

Kat said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Scoutpost said...

@Black Swan- yeah I won't actually be able to see it again until 2 more hours. So we'll just be going on memory!

And yeah I think it is enhanced pilot on Saturday night

maven said...

I finally say...here we go!

maven said...

I'm afraid to say anything in fear that I'm remember something you haven't all seen yet!

Black Swan said...

whaaaa? Desmond calling for oceanic.. we've got your cargo

Kat said...

of course its des.

memphish said...

And the circle closes with Jack sewing up Kate.

TheOtherLisa said...

Wow... des, and now Jack stitching up Kate... wow.....

Black Swan said...

Locke did this .. we have to kill him, i know.. commercial

maven said...

Disguises his accent well!

maven said...

That does look very painful!

Black Swan said...

ok, so Des is there to help Jack connect and remember the Island, right?

TheOtherLisa said...

how funny... should someone be designated to narrate for you maven? I type dialog pretty fast.... ;-)

Black Swan said...

Yes, he does, maven. I had no idea who that was on the phone

TheOtherLisa said...

Sunday's gonna be a late night, eh?

Black Swan said...

whew, Sawyer's ok!! I was worried

maven said...

I think I just need to read you guys...since I know the whole episode this is tough!

Scoutpost said...

This is hilarious actually- I feel blind and deaf...took me a minute to remember when the heck Jack was stitching up Kate...but now I'm on board! lol

Capcom said...

Hey all, out of the gate!

TOL, does the white tulip have anything to do with Fringe?

maven said...

@Scoutpost: This is difficult!

Black Swan said...

When you look out to the sea, does that mean you're enlightened now? or 'reborn'?

Des is there to help Locke 'let it go'.. guess he's doing the same thing for Ben, huh? ouch.. letting go is painful

Capcom said...

Aw, poor Dr. Ben! But I know he's doing it for a reason. :-(

maven said...

And Ben gets beat up again! It's his destiny! LOL

Black Swan said...

the monster summoned Ben, not Ben summoning the monster.. hmmm

Capcom said...

Didn't Ben go back to bury Alex?

Heheh, Ben's got 20 sets of the same Docker outfits. X-D

TheOtherLisa said...

Woah.. that's a way to make Ben remember ya Des...
finally we see Ben, Myles and Alpert!

Oooohhhh... the monster was the one summoning Ben? How on earth is that gonna pan out?

Zoe and Widmore and Ben finally meet!!

Black Swan said...

LOL, Ben's face seeing Widmore there

TheOtherLisa said...

No,no Fringe Capcom... it was just the ONLY white tulip that came up in my garden this year, thought it was an interesting shot amongst the rest!

Black Swan said...

LOL, capcom. No, he didn't bury Alex, but he did go to her body to say his last good-byes

memphish said...

Where is Ben's group in time? Before or after the beach scene?

Scoutpost said...

That was a great line about Ben being summoned, not the summoner

Dedjezter said...

I can't believe Desmond woke up Ben!

Melissa_Lossa said...

What's that, a secreter room?

I love you, Miles.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh my gosh I'm having all kinds of trouble my recording in the living room froze up which shuts down the tv. Had to go to the bed room. But didn't have a computer to blog. Got my phone then the tv started back up. Yay Thank goodness I make a backup recording. lol

LostIt said...

It took them a long time to get to the barracks, didn't it? I mean assuming that we're seeing it in chronological order.

TheOtherLisa said...

Des said he was there to help Locke "let it go"? I didn't catch that?

Kat said...

Oh man im so glad we got to see miles alpert and ben again!!!! finally. Im still sad about sun and jin though.

Black Swan said...

Yeah, scoutpost.. so, in looking back, it was Smokey trying to get rid of the freighter folk I guess?

Sayid'sgirl said...

So Des is trying to get them to let go. Let go of the FS or island?

maven said...

Ben always said Jacob summoned you...you didn't go to see him!

Amy Lynn said...

Secreter room :)

TheOtherLisa said...

Ok, so if that's true, was Smokey protecting the island? same as Jacob, but in a different way?

Black Swan said...

Sayid'sgirl, they have to let go their not-real life in the sideways? maybe?

Kat said...

Water... you doing here.

Black Swan said...

So, Jacob told Wid he shouldn't have done that with the freighter

LostIt said...

Why do they have to hide? Can't they turn on the sonic fence?

Capcom said...

Nice tulips TOL!

Tx, BS!

Kat said...

OMG DES IS ON FIREEEE

maven said...

He's the off-island Jacob!

Black Swan said...

So, Jacob burning his ashes will get him off the Island..

Capcom said...

Totally!

BTW (delayed), that must be some video, Scoutpost!

Sayid'sgirl said...

But I want Jacob to live. :) I know his time is done. :(

LostIt said...

So why did he show up as his younger self? And how did he physically take the ashes if he's a ghost?

Capcom said...

He'll just go into the light with Caroline. :o)

Capcom said...

I mean, Carolann. :->

Takes a Village said...

Desmond says...WAKE UP!

Kat said...

I agree with BS about letting go of the sideways world and remembering everything that actually happend

Dedjezter said...

SG & BS I am in agreement with you there... they have to let go of the fake to fix the real.

"Unfortunately no one can be told what the matrix is... you have to see it for yourself."

TheOtherLisa said...

oh...so widmore was once a bad guy till Jacob turned him around? so Ben and Wid end up on the same side via Jacob? now that's a test of trust...

ha! is this the school nurse who was inappropriate with the principal?

now Des and Jack both telling Locke to let go...and Des comes along to "the" precinct... and turns himself in??there's a method to this maddness... wow, and there it is... there THEY are! Wow! (how forgetful I can be!)

Aw man... Sawyer taking responsibility for their deaths... too sad...

The ashes "Because they're mine" (um, yours as in your dead body's?) So now, Jacob lives forever in the smoke (are we back to Rousseau's smoke?)

Thanks Cap, my spring garden was beautiful this year... now it looks crummy in the season switch!

maven said...

I think Jacob needed his ashes so he can truly die and let go.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Did he kill Richard?

maven said...

I thought so!

LostIt said...

Ben ratted them out. So I guess they'll make a get-away through the secreter room?

Black Swan said...

Doesn't look good for Richard, SG. (and he was walkin' along there lookin' so fine)

TOL, I know.. Sawyer feels so bad


yep Maven, truly die and let go.. his redemption

maven said...

Ben has shifted sides again!

Melissa_Lossa said...

And.... I'm crying.

Black Swan said...

It's such a pleasure seeing Ben truthful

Scoutpost said...

RIP Richard....

Capcom said...

LOL Ded.

Kat said...

WOW this is nuts. but im enjoying it.

LostIt said...

So much for Ben being redeemed.

maven said...

I was shocked what when down in Ben's secret closet!

Dedjezter said...

Ka-Blam... oh snap!

Black Swan said...

!!!!!!!!!!!! Ben never ceases to amaze me, either!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I knew Ben wouldn't change for long.
Does the ashes make him visable?

TheOtherLisa said...

Yeah, this has got some twists.... and Ben is Ben, eh? out for himself till the end in island time....

now, I hope we don't get a story telling spoon feed by Jacob by the fire....

Dedjezter said...

We will not see this conversation... arrrgh

Scoutpost said...

and to think I bought the Ben Linus "trust me" tshirt right before I saw this episode!

TheOtherLisa said...

HA! Yeeeeeehhhaaaawwww!!! Kate is still in the running, in the final 4, in the circle! I knew it!

memphish said...

Yay! They gave Kate the voice of the audience. Way to go Kate and writers!

Dedjezter said...

lol Scout thats good.

Capcom said...

I bet we won't see it either. :-(

TheOtherLisa said...

Alperts end was pretty anti-climactic, eh? Guess if it wasn't we'd need 45 minutes added to the finale... nothin like killin em off quick.

Scoutpost said...

yeah but raise your hand if you want Kate in charge of the island...

Black Swan said...

Yeah, that makes Kate still a candidate..

I don't want any of them stuck there protecting the Island. What a crap job!

maven said...

Liked when they explain things to us crazy fans!

memphish said...

Now don't count Kate out. She's already stolen one baby as part of her resume.

LostIt said...

I'd like to see the converstion with Jacob. I want to see his interpretation of what we saw last week (adding in what he learned since then).

I'm very upset that Ben isn't really redeemed. That scene with Ilana was a high point in the season for me. Once a @#$@#$, always a #@#$Q@#, I guess.

Black Swan said...

TOL, no kidding! Rush to the deaths!

maven said...

Interesting that Jacob gives them a choice...or else he knows who will step up.

TheOtherLisa said...

Kate's less of a choice than Jack, or Sawyer---who were wililng participants in the triangle?? Never did get why she was so hated and the men got a pass...

Now Hurley... class unto himself.

Kat said...

I cant believe all this!!! Its happening. after 6 years.

memphish said...

BTW, that promo was excellent. I didn't look at any of them or vote ahead of time.

TheOtherLisa said...

Lostit--- I would have also liked to see Ben be redeemed....

Dedjezter said...

My hand drops to the floor, no no it goes through the floor... I want Hurley... who's with me?!?

\m/

Black Swan said...

Yeah, memphish.. the promo looked quite professional, too. Mine didn't have a chance.. LOL!

TheOtherLisa said...

Oh snap... the coincidence for fate comment!

Black Swan said...

mistaking coincidence for fate.. interesting covo there with Jack and Locke

Capcom said...

Oh boy, this is like a campfire spooky story! :-D

maven said...

They showed the winning fan promo tonight? That was won by my friend's friend's son!

Capcom said...

Wait, where have I heard that before?

Capcom said...

Oh yeah, Interview With A Vampire, by Lestat.

Dedjezter said...

I really don't want Jack to take Jacobs place... It won't ruin the show for me I just don't think he has what it takes.... Hurley does.

LostIt said...

*sigh of relief* I'm very glad they showed the conversation with Jacob. I would have been pissed if they left it out and left us guessing what was said.

Black Swan said...

Jack has known something big with him and the Island is there for a long time, now he knows what it is

Takes a Village said...

Wouldn't it have been nice if all the episodes were as good as tonight?

LostIt said...

I agree with you Ded. I was thinking Desmond was acting the most Jacobesque.

Capcom said...

Mr. Fixxitt gets to do the ultimate fix, of The Universe.

Kat said...

What have you heard from interview with a vampire Capcop?

Capcom said...

I wonder if it's significant that TPTB used Lestat's line?

LostIt said...

Where did Miles disappear to? Did he go into the secreter room? If he did, why didn't Widmore and Zoe go too? I assume he's someone that Flocke doesn't care about.

Capcom said...

It was that line, "I want to give you what I was never given....a choice." That's what Lestat said to Louis.

Black Swan said...

Really maven? Yeah they showed the winning video from the contest at abc.com. He must be a professional (or at least have access to some great tech)
It's a wonderful video

Dedjezter said...

Damn my AT&T plan... damn it to hell.... lol

Ginger said...

Hi all! Enjoying this episode soooo much! Don't want it to end :( Did they just say they are broadcasting a bunch of text messages during the Finale!? They better not be popping up at the bottom of the screen! During commercials OK, but not during the Finale!

Kat said...

HE doesnt even want it guys!!

maven said...

I just think Miles ran off into the jungle.

Capcom said...

Ruh-roh, the water!

Black Swan said...

don't drink it jack!

LostIt said...

Was it me or di Jack have a look on his face that looked like he all of a sudden knew something he didn't before after drinking from the cup?

maven said...

Why is it just the water this time?

Black Swan said...

I'm loving this episode!

maven said...

I loved it, too! Puts us on track for the finale!

TheOtherLisa said...

I'm betting all 4 of them stay... not just Jack (if we can't live together...we'll die alone!)

And this is crazy stuff.....they got Des!!! ;-)

Black Swan said...

I saw that, Lostit

Dedjezter said...

Awesome and snacktacular as usual.

Kat said...

that was amazing.

Dedjezter said...

No way man... Sawyer still wants off in a big way!

Black Swan said...

Locke's gonna destroy the Island! with the help of Desmond.

Sayid'sgirl said...

That was an awesome episode!

maven said...

Well, it was awesome to be here with you guys as you watch an episode! Now I can't wait to actually SEE it again with hubby (who has not seen it yet)!

Black Swan said...

Have fun re-watching with your hubby, maven!

TheOtherLisa said...

Well, then Des stays, and the 4 candidates move on... I just don't see them leaving Jack....

Ginger said...

That was awesome!!!!! Desmond is rocking the FS. Loved it!

Can someone confirm or deny what I thought I heard on that stupid Verizon commercial, please, thank you.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Oh, that was great. Except, what was up with that weird promo at the end?

Capcom said...

That was a good ep. Nice seeing Jacob being so honest. Sad to see Ben revert back to his post-temple-dunk ways again. I also felt that his "conversion" with Ilana was amazing.

As much as I didn't care for the FS and all it's forced coincidences, it was nice to see all the crazy people acting sane, e.g. Danielle. :-)

Ginger said...

Sorry, I mean about the text messages during the Finale.

TheOtherLisa said...

Just rereading.... Lostit, you are right... Myles is out there somewhere? or in there? or somewhere!

memphish said...

So 2 1/2 hours to go and I still don't know what the sideways world is. And yet I don't care. I just want it to survive. I think. Cause wouldn't Sayid and Kate be fugitives? Oh well, they could be fugitives together. Remember way back before Solitary when the triangle sort of included Sayid (Capt. Falafel per Sawyer).

maven said...

@Ginger: The text messages have something to do with the retrospective prior to the finale Sunday night. ABC will be showing some texts sent in about what Lost meant to people. Apparently only works with Verizon.

LostIt said...

I think seeing Widmore is what launched Ben back over to the dark side. It brought up all those feelings of anger about Alex and all he wanted was vengeance.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think Ben is like MIB he looks for a means to an end.
I never felt he was redeemed. JMO

maven said...

The one thing I didn't like about this episode is Ana Lucia taking the bribe money...my son is an LAPD cop!

TheOtherLisa said...

Does anyone else know what they died for?

Sorry... to protect the light? why so many people? why so many had to die? Not sure I have that answer despite the title...or am I just a little slow on the uptake?

Black Swan said...

When Des was punching out Ben on his car (in the sideways), didn't Ben have a flash of the Island there?

Capcom said...

I think so too Lostit. I'd bet that Flocke mentioned Penny on purpose to make Ben's brain go !TILT!

I have expected Ben to say, "Why would I want this island now?!" when Flocke was bargaining with him. I mean seriously, what's to stay for now?

Capcom said...

There are bad cops everywhere, Maven. :-(

Black Swan said...

maven, maybe that's why Des said she wasn't going with them; that Ana wasn't 'ready' yet?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Blk Swan Yes Ben had a flash of the island.

TheOtherLisa said...

I was waiting for Sawyer or Myles to be the driver.

Dedjezter said...

BlackSwan- He did have a flash to the real world but his flash was from when Desmond kicked his ass on the docks in the off island times... so he may not be clued in yet.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Now I see what Jeff Jensen was meaning by funny parts. When been seen Des and ran up to him and said oh no you don't I cracked up. Also when I seen Des seemed to be ready to run down Locke again was slightly funny.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh Geez Ben not been. lol

memphish said...

This is the first episode this season I wish I could rewatch right now. But Hubby's got to catch up on 24. I think I'll save this and rewatch on Sunday before the finale. The idea of a clip show with fan texts scrolling by -- well, let's just say it's not really how I want to spend the last 2 hours leading up to the finale.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know it's crazy but I want them to somehow all come back to the island and be alive. I like the island story so much more than the FS or their real backstory.

Amy Lynn said...

Definitely a great episode. Didn't feel like S6 at all.

memphish said...

Good one AL. I agree in spite of the FS world.

I thought the Jack, David, Claire breakfast was adorable.

Hey, is that the same apartment Jack was living in just before he and Kate flew back to the Island on Ajira 316? It sure looked like it.

TheOtherLisa said...

SG- Like Jacob said, they were searching in the real world..... not happy..... so I could go with you, long live the Island and its 815ers (plus maybe a few others...seriously, where IS Myles? and we've still got to wrap up Faraday, have a concert, Rose and Bernard, find out who Jack's wife is... though we can surmise David is playing at "the" concert and Des is reuniting Kate and Jack....???)

maven said...

At Royce Hall there was a lot of laughing.

maven said...

I thought it was the same apartment, Memphish.

memphish said...

For some reason it really jumped out at me tonight Maven. I guess that was the first breakfast scene we'd gotten.

Takes a Village said...

This time we count backwards;5,4,3,2,1 Finale.
Good night all.

Capcom said...

LOL, the highest praise, it didn't seem like an S6 episode. X-D

Black Swan said...

g'nite, TAV!

TOL, Miles ran off in the jungle, I think

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know it's crazy but I want them to somehow all come back to the island and be alive. I like the island story so much more than the FS or their real backstory.

Not crazy at all Sayid'sgirl. I want them to face a future with their Island memories intact and their FB from previous seasons to be real, not erased by Jack's 'reset'. In other words, I want it to be our Losties we've known for over 5 years and to see them face the future with the enlightenments and growth they've experienced since 2004 (Island time, O6 time, Dharmaville time.. all acknowledged and better ppl because of all they've been through. To let the sideways be the real future of our Losties feels like a cheat to me, negating all the previous seasons of Lost (lol, like Hurley said at Comic-con). I'd rather TPTB leave us to our wild imagination to guess what their futures will be rather than to 'settle' on the sideways, IMO.

TheOtherLisa said...

Black Swan... I think I agree.

There's a whole bunch of people then, running in the desert from the temple.... they don't much matter, but really, if that's the end to Myles... hmmmm... its less climactic than poor Alpert.

Sayid'sgirl said...

TOL
I don't think they're happy in the FS either.
Miles ran off in the jungle. Who knows where he'll pop up again. lol

TheOtherLisa said...

Well, the last 2.5 hours has a big bill to fill, eh?
A gigantic concert, Jack going to the light, Ben killing a bunch of people (or not).... and Sawyer trying to round up the escapees..... hmmmmm... will try to keep hope alive!

Sadly, though it was better than last ep, I had hoped for more in this ep. ---not sure "what"--- but maybe more of something... but perhaps we'll flush it out in the next few days....

Good night all.

LostIt said...

Isn't Myles going to the concert? Won't he recognize Kate?

Black Swan said...

The FS always seem like a bad 70's tv show to me.. LOL!

TOL, I know, there's a lot to cover in 2.5 hours! With this ep, the same as all these, the thing that's missing is MORE TIME. It always feels rushed to me and when the hour is over I can't believe it!
g'nite, TOL!

memphish said...

Here's the crazy thing. 2.5 hours to go and I don't know what I'm supposed to be rooting for.

Flocke's plan is to use Desmond to destroy the Island, right? So that should be the thing that creates the sideways world? A world that begins years before 2007? Huh?

Sideways Desmond is creating a showdown to get people to let go in the sideways world. But why? What will that get us?

Yeah. I'm not sure I should think about it too hard.

LostIt said...

BS, I hear you about the time. It hardly seemed like a whole hour went by. I was telling my husband that it seemed like it had only benn a half hour.

maven said...

I guess you all heard today that Sunday's finale will have 50 minutes of commercials...that's right...5 - 0!

Sayid'sgirl said...

lol Blk Swan you're right and I know I grew up in the '70s.

LostIt said...

Jacob didn't warn them about not going into the light, did he?

Sayid'sgirl said...

Lostit
No not yet. But he has 2.5 hours. :) I'm listening to a podcast and they think Ben is setting up MIB. That he's a master manipulator.
I'm not sure I buy it but maybe.

Black Swan said...

Wow, 50 commercials (LOL, Hawaii 5-0). I heard they're getting tons of money for a 30 second spot, too. Oh, I know, they want to get each of us loyal Lost fans a present with all that money, I bet.. ROFL!

I know Sayid'sgirl.. I'm no spring chicken either.. LOL!

And how can they end it all in 2004 (like in the sideways)? That's going backwards. idk

I'd like to see Des causing a big white-out flash at the concert and also causing a big white-out flash on the Island at the same time. All our Losties end up skinny-dipping in the ocean and here comes Penny's boat to save them all to go forward with their lives. LOL!

LostIt said...

I'm thinking that maybe Widmore told Flocke a lie about Desmond. Or at least not the whole truth. Why would Widmore tell Flocke anything real? to save Penny? If Widmore's successful using Des in whatever way he's supposed to use him, how will Flocke be able to do anything to anybody?

I think Wid told Flocke something that would lead him down the path of his own destruction.

Steve said...

Is the concert for David, or is it Drive Shaft?

Sayid'sgirl said...

That's about average for commercials. In 2.5 hours you'd probably get about 45 minutes worth anyway.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think it's a charity benefit. They're all playing at. That Eloise is hosting.

Capcom said...

Let's hope so Lostit, because it really ticked me off that Widmore whispered in front of us!!!!!

Man, RA really took a quick exit, that was rough.

Steve said...

oooh, good call.

Capcom said...

I wonder if there's any chance that Wid was smart enough to wear a kevlar vest?

Amy Lynn said...

Just catching up on comments now, since I've been dealing with getting tickets to this LOST comedy thing on Saturday for oh, NINETY minutes, LOL :)

I would like to see a Ben/Danielle romantic comedy spinoff, Please!@!!

Just Thinking said...

OK-jumping in before reading-noted 2 things-

Seems like Claire must have let Desmond out of the well.

Ben has a plan for the walkies- so I think he wanted to kill Widmore- but might be working another angle to get rid of Smokie.

Will hop back and read now-trying to finish party favors for Lost LA cook out!

Black Swan said...

JT, I was wondering where Claire was. LOL!

Just Thinking said...

Did anyone get a good look at the Thanksgiving picture on Jack's desk? Who was in that?

Amy Lynn said...

@JT, I think it was Christian, Jack and David.
