I'm fascinated that we're learning about a new era of the Island. In 1954 the US Army invaded the Island to test an H-Bomb and went to war with the Others. Great stuff! AND we met a young Charles Widmore (Other) and Faraday's mother when she was young.

How do I know this? In the pop-up info for the rerun of "The Lie", it said her name is ELOISE Hawking. What was the name of the British Other who guarded Faraday who he found so familiar? ELLIE. Fascinating.


You just blew my mind.
Verily. Good eyes, Mr Light!

Was anyone else reminded of Crystal Skull when we saw the H-Bomb in its little wooden tower? I kept expecting Faraday to jump off the tower and start running away yelling "WE NEED TO FIND A REFRIGERATOR QUICK!!!"

The actor who played Widmore was also in that film as the general who tells Indy not to play with refrigerators because they're death traps.

Definitely thought Crystal Skull with that nuke.

Re: Lost 5x03: "Jughead"

I don't really care one way or the other if Charlotte lives, I never gelled to her character. They never really gave her anything to do and she always gave off a sinister vibe. The first interesting thing they did with her was revealing she born on the Island in the S4 finale. I seem to recall reading awhile ago she wouldn't be a full cast member this year unlike Faraday and Miles but I guess that isn't true.

Oh man, that's right Alan Dale was that General in Crystal Skull! That's funny.

So this means the Others were the one obsessed with chopping people's hands off. How come they don't do that in the present era anymore?

Also, how the hell did the US Army stumble across the Island in the first place? If they're just using it for a nuke test doesn't that suggest that it's just another typical Island at this point and not cloaked? Does it become first cloaked because of this invasion? Is this why Widmore/Eloise must turn the donkey wheel? Remember when Dharma finds it in the 1970s it would have been 20 years after it was used, plenty of time to freeze over again. Or if the Island was cloaked in 1954, maybe they used the Black Rock Diary to find it?

Not sure, but I'm leaning towards no. When John asked Richard how to leave the island, Richard indicated that it was privileged information. If it's still tough to leave I'm guessing it's still tough to get there.

The army found it though, and I guess they would have had a way off.

I wonder if the EMP's from nuke tests in the Pacific interfered with the Island's cloak for a time.

Maybe. Although, the Others killed all the army guys. We didn't hear about any of them leaving. Which isn't to say they didn't of course. But maybe the army somehow found the island and got more than they bargained for when they got there.

Re: Lost 5x03: "Jughead"

Holy crap! The actress who plays Young Ellie Hawking was born in 1990! She's only 18?! I thought she was in her 20s or even early 30s. This would make Miss Hawking around 71 in 2007 in the Oceanic Six timeline. And Fionnula Flanagan is currently 67!

Re: Lost 5x03: "Jughead"

Oh yeah, are there ANY redshirt survivors of the Losties at this point? Did this episode literally kill every single non-main character? Holdasec, what happened to Rose and Bernard! Where was the last place we saw them? Maybe they have some other redshirts with them.

Re: Lost 5x03: "Jughead"

Hmm, Widmore is a former Other. Yet his orders to Keamy were to kill every single person on the Island after Ben was retrieved. He's willing to kill all his former people? To kill Alpert? To kill Jacob, if that's possible? He must have had a very unpleasant expulsion from them. Does he hate Ben just because he's the current leader of the Others, or because Ben personally exiled him? This seems unlikely since Ben didn't become the leader until 1992 with the Purge and obviously Widmore was off-Island way prior to that to father Penny and found his company. Of course, he might have just been working off-Island for the Others before that and then finally Ben didn't let him come back home. Then again, he keeps declaring its "his" Island... does he feel he should be the leader and not Ben? Did Ben beat him out in a struggle to be the leader?

I hope all the redshirts are dead. They really serve no purpose other than cannon fodder.
