Below is not SPOILER but Speculation:

A lot of chatter is that Sayid really is dead and that now the spirit of
Jacob is going to inhabit his body.

Who know's where this development is leading, but here's some interesting observation:
-Sayid shoots Ben back when Ben's a child.
-James and Kate take Ben to Richard who takes the child into the Temple to be healed. It can be assumed that the springs were used. Richard referred to a "loss of innocence" for Ben.
-Ben's dad shoots Sayid.
-In order for Sayid to be saved, he too has to be taken to the Temple.

The previous two seasons took Sayid's character into darker territory as we learned of his "partnership" with Ben and eventually his attempt to prevent future events with young Ben's murder. I think this latest twist may once again intertwine the two character arcs into the finale.

Tuesday can't come soon enough.

Doesn't help that Monday's like a black hole for quality programming.

holy shit, no comments about this week's episode yet?

good shit all around, I'm still digging Sawyer's character arc, too bad it's heartbreaking...

Claire is the new Rosseau?

and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia invaded the island!

I didn't think this week was all that great. The Claire reveal was telegraphed. The only thing I really liked was Sawyer's arc and the hint that everyone was "brought" to the island.

Yeah, I dug that they brought Mac's character back just to kick the shit out of him a couple more times. Fucking hilarious. They should've just named his character 'Red Shirt' or something.

Can't wait 'till next week. I fucking love Locke episodes.

I didn't really get any "Oohs" and "Ahh" when watching this episode. Revealing Clair was no surprise since the episode really centered around her and Kate. However, I finally sense one of my theories is right, the things we saw in S1, S2 on the Island are going to happen off the Island in the Flash Sideways.
Anyways, next week's episode looks a lot better and will probably reveal even more. Gosh, is it Tuesday yet???

So ...


All of those 'hallucinations' on the island weren't, necessarily, Smokey this whole time? Apparently, even the smoke monster's subject to them. Weird.

Fuckin' hell. Best episode of the season, so far. Can't wait to watch it again.

Finally, the shit hits the fan.

Awesome episode. Almost flawless in narrative and character development.


SPOILERS!

- the best thing I think that came out of it was now we are getting a better glimpse as to how "parallel" reality will have a building story arc involving all of the characters. We've seen "cameos" like Jack walking by Sayid at the hospital or Hurley getting Locke a job, but when Sayid discovers Jin it really got me excited to see how things will play out.

- when you look at the current point in the story from the perspective of looking at the overall story, I still think there is intentional ambiguity as to who/what is good or evil. I'm still not sold that Jacob is a good guy and Smokey is evil. It appears that way, obviously, based on the context we are given; but a future reveal could easily flip it on its head.

- in an earlier post I highlighted the parallels between Sayid and Ben, and now in this past episode it is even greater. Both Ben and Sayid has been "manipulated" by Smokey to kill his enemies. Ben was convinced to do it out of retribution, Sayid was convinced out of reward.

- Did Jacob's interaction with Sayid in L.A. knowingly lead to Nadia's death? If Jacob wasn't there maybe Sayid could have saved her or maybe been killed along with her. Did Jacob know this would lead to him being more vulnerable to Smokey's temptation? Maybe that's why Jacob insisted Hurley get Sayid to the temple and have him resurected, because Jacob wants Smokey to kill off the followers at the temple; and he needed Sayid to allow it to happen.

The writers must use a dart board full of ideas to put this together.
What a mess.

Washington Post.

Creators of 'Lost' say they won't tie up all those loose ends
By Lisa de Moraes
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Many of the questions posed during the run of "Lost" that have been keeping you up at night are never going to be answered on the show but will instead be tossed on the compost heap like an old turnip, because, the writers say, they have run out of time.

And if you're expecting they will nonetheless come through with some kind of post-finale TV special, online chat, tweet -- anything! -- to answer their rabid fans' lingering head-scratchers, you need to think again. They have no intention of discussing the show after the finale airs on May 23, co-creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse blithely informed nearly 2,000 "Lost" fans attending the annual TV festival of the Paley Center for Media (formerly Museum of Television and Radio, formerly Museum of Broadcasting) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Now, you'd think that might have irked some of those nearly 2,000 fans who had coughed up $25 to $75 and then stood in line -- some for more than two hours -- in the on-again, off-again rain Saturday night in order to spend slightly less than two hours in the company of the writers, and a smattering of actors, from the prime-time soap.

You'd be wrong. It only inflamed their passion:

"Now that we're [preparing] the finale, we're not at all having the experience of 'Oh, my God, we forgot to do this!' " Lindelof told the capacity crowd at the Saban Theater.

"We're big fans of the show 'Top Chef,' " he explained. "Those guys all run through Whole Foods and they have to pull all of this stuff down -- they have to get stuff they might not use in the dish. When they get to the kitchen, they have to decide whether or not they're going to use it. Our process is kind of the same."

"There's a lot of little questions that unfortunately we just don't have time to answer in the amount of time that we have left," co-creator Cuse told the uber-fans.

What with trying to keep all the intertwining story lines straight, it's probably slipped his mind that the "time we lave left" was determined years ago by Cuse and Lindelof themselves, which would seem to suggest that running out of time was something they had, um, planned.

Back in May of 2007, ABC and the creative team behind the weedy tangle of a series announced the show would end in the spring of 2010. Nearly three years later, at the Paleyfest, Cuse said of any unresolved plot issues: "Ultimately, the way we look at it is that if the characters don't care about that question, then we as storytellers don't care about that question."

Of course, what the characters do and do not care about is decided upon by . . . well, Cuse and Lindelof, come to think of it. Because the characters are, you know, not real people.

These fine points seemed lost on the glassy-eyed fans who were madly tweeting every second of the big event. For example: Damon just spoiled that Santa isn't real, and there are kids in the audience. Uh-oh.

But those of us who have been able to resist the show's insidious ability to suck your brain out through your ear -- by shouting out nursery rhymes and performing other non-rhythmic tricks -- were sore as gumboils when panelists said we're out of luck if we're waiting to find out who exactly was the economist Sayid shot on the golf course. Apparently they heard from Sayid -- he couldn't care less.

"We feel like the show should stand on its own," Cuse said. "We're actually not going to comment on the show after the finale. We want everybody to basically be able to continue the dialogue. . . . We don't think it's really appropriate for us to say, 'Oh, here is the official definition for what we meant by any particular moment on the show.' "

Let's recap, shall we? The show's creators say it's not appropriate for the show's creators to give the "official definition" of what they, the show's creators, meant by any particular moment on the show they created.

Okey-dokey.

I'm enjoying the new season, quite a bit... not as crazy or fucked up as the last few, but that's fine. I'm invested enough in these characters to see this through all the way... glad to see some actual redemption for Ben finally!

I bet the entire season ends with Rose and Bernard looking off into the sunset... hell, or being the keepers of the Island/Jacob's replacements.

I just commented to a friend that we haven't seen Bernard or Rose on the island for a while and that Rose's "We're retired" comment was a good coda for their characters. I've been convinced for some time that the series would end with Jack and Locke sitting on the beach and looking off into the sunset as the island's new caretakers, but I kind of like your idea better, RB.
