Lost review for October 11, 2006

This post is more than 2 years old.

This weeks episode focused on the Koreans, which is always a favorite of mine (I'm a bit biased). We finally found that Sun did indeed cheat on her husband. As far as I remember it was always implied, but tonight's episode made it clear.

Sun's father discovers the infidelity and asks Jun to murder the man Sun is cheating with. He doesn't tell him the real reason why - just asks Jun to kill him.

Jun is unable to go through with it though. In the end it doesn't matter - the man throws himself off his hotel balcony and falls to his death.

Back in the present, Sayid, Sun and Jun are piloting the sailboat around trying to trap the Others. However - the Others get them instead. Sun barely escapes the boat in time. (But not before shooting one of the Others - big surprise there.)

Sawyer and Freckles (I always forget her name) are forced to do manual labor, breaking up and moving stones. I couldn't see any real reason why for it - but Others are seen nearby looking at plans I think. Therefore I don't think it was simple make work, I think there was a purpose. Sawyer starts a fight to try to flesh out the skills of the Others. Some are trained, some are not. Sawyer says the blond woman (I forget her name, but she was the first Other we saw in the last episode) would have had no problems shooting Freckles, and that I believe. While I still think she may break away from the Others - she is definitely "hard" like Ben.

Speaking of Ben - he tries to make friendly with Jack back at the prison. Ben says the exact date and says he can get Jack home, as long as he helps. When Jack asks exactly what Ben would want, he doesn't say. To prove to Jack that he knows what is going on in the real world - Ben shows him video tape of the world series. Oh - and we also learn that Ben grew up on the island.

Next weeks show looks much better - we finally get an episode with Locke and Eco and I think the Monster.

Being a Yankees fan, it was great to see Jack laugh about the RedSox winning the world series.

Who was the woman looking for Carl?

Robert - I totally have no idea what you mean. Carl? Woman? What scene was that.

Ok.. When Kate was breaking the rocks, there was a point where a woman hiding in the bushes got her attention and asked her if there was another man in the cages with her and Jack..

When Kate said "no" she seemed upset and asked where "Carl" had gone... she said something about them not supposed to be using those cages? (I may be dreaming that last part?)

Then she asked Kate where she got the dress and said it was hers but Kate could keep it...

She was definately hiding from the "others"..

Ohhh! That is the daughter of the crazy French woman. Remember her now?

Carl was the boy with Sawyer in the cages last week. Remember Juliet (aka Blonde woman who would kill Kate) caught him after his and Sawyer's escape. Carl was gone with Kate was brought back to the cages so she was not lying to Alex when she stated that she had not seen Carl.

Ok.. I didnt recognize her....

I am perplexed at how the Otehrs know so much about everyone. They knew Sawyer's real name was James.

Also, when Ben was told about the sailboat, it looked as if he ws relieved, almost like he wants to get off the island.

To your first point - they have communication with the outside world - so obviously they did some research. Remember they had plants in the camps?

As for your second point - I don't agree. I thought he looked upset. Also - did you notice how the blond chick said, "All they would do is go aroundin circles". I don't think they were worried per se. Walt had to use _one_ exact heading to escape, so I'm thinking the space/time is warped around the island.

I am getting pretty interested in Juliet’s story arc. What is her deal? One minute she shows some empathy and tosses Sawyer the water, and the next she holds a gun to Kate. (Or was she just testing Sawyer?)

It was a fight - so she HAD to help. I still think she will turn... eventually. She looks like the kind of person who would hook up with Jack.

I enjoyed the episode, but then I seem to enjoy every episode. The only thing that I would say is that it was risky to have the joke about the Red Sox which will fall flat and have no meaning what so ever everywhere else in the world because only a rabid international sports fan would know about what a big deal it was for them to win that year and why Jack would not believe that they had won.

I also am intrigued by Juliette, can't figure her out - she's both tough and gentle. I'm interested to see what happens with her character.

Comment 13 by Raymond Camden posted on 10/13/2006 at 12:50 AM

Hey - I had no idea who won the WS myself. :) I watch football. And thanks everyone for saying Juliette. Maybe now I'll stop saying "the blond".

Comment 14 by Andy Jarrett posted on 10/17/2006 at 5:10 PM

What did everyone else think when Ben mentioned the date, do you believe he is telling the truth??? I still can't think if this is somehow set in the future and that was nothing but a ruse? It sounds far fetched but then I think of the "monster" and think anything is still possible.

Also why is Ben interested in the boat?? They had a boat (micheal left on it last season), surely if they have contact to the outside world someone could sail in?

Damn these questions! :o)

Comment 15 by Raymond Camden posted on 10/17/2006 at 5:13 PM

My feeling is that it is nearly impossible to escape the island (unless you go in ONE specific heading), but that Ben didn't want to leave anything to chance.

I always refer to her as "Freckles" too!
