That pilot being impaled is a reminder of the cost of getting the Oceanic Six back to the island. Hopefully it's for a good reason, otherwise they got a couple of people killed for nothing.
I wouldn't be surprised if they reveal he was a Widmore or Dharma guy.

Gave it an Average. An ok episode.

One of my favorite parts was how quickly that one survivor asked the right questions, like why are there buildings over there and an island a short ways away. Granted he's on the smaller island with the higher building density, but still. Similarly I liked Sawyers speech to Jack since he finally called him on a lot of his bullshit.

I thought the lil Ben thing at the end was super lame, I hope they go somewhere cool with that.

The rest was kind of uninteresting to me. Not really interested in the new love triangle... er square, or what's happening with Sun at the moment.


So Faraday is gone huh? Maybe he goes back to civilization and get's a sex change to BECOME his mother! If he were adopted he could get a plastic surgeon to make him look like a picture of his mom that he has in his wallet. Talk about crazy paradoxes.

Too bad they already showed the origin of the roger corpse in the van, otherwise they could have made one of the losties be the corpse.

I wonder if the flash didn't take Sun back because she's evil now.

After doing all that work to get rid of the background survivors, they've now added like ten more random ones.

I just read all the hubub about the mystery chick standing behind Sun in cabin scene, and I think it's a blooper. Although I didn't notice that the smoke monster enters the room in that scene in the background, which is pretty cool. But considering how it looks at normal brightness levels I think the woman is either a crewperson, or the reflection of a crewperson.

We finally meet Radzinsky! I already don't like this guy. I have a feeling that by the end of the season I'll be praying for him to become that stain on the ceiling of the Swan!
I grinned when I heard his name, and throughout I could see his death being less suicide and more Kelvin getting really bored of him

I don't know where this is going with Sayid and Young Ben. Sadly we didn't get any promos this week. I have a feeling that someone needs to brief Sayid on the rules of time travel though. Since I get the feeling he's going to attempt something rash.
Without Faraday's knowledge Sawyer has to keep control of the timeline. He may be more easily swayed to make changes. Though I can see Sayid using his image as a hostile to perhaps 'out' Ben as their recruit. He could easily manufacture a story and win favour by saying he opposed the breach of the treaty and their plans, which is why they had him in handcuffs... and now he's escaped to reveal all.

That looks too much like Claire to be a mistake. It's not a reflection and if someone was sitting in frame like that I'm sure someone would go all Christian Bale on them.

I have to admit, when I saw the light go on in the cabin I thought it might have been Faraday after travelling back to the future. I really didn't expect Christian to reveal himself to anyone else.

Overall... pretty good. It's nice to see Sawyer laying down the law and showing he's in control. I quite liked the Churchhill line and how he compared his management style to Jacks.

Lots of little moments with naming Ethan, seeing someone maybe figuring out that Jack and Kate aren't supposed to be there and everything everyones pointed out so far. Good stuff.

The Ben reveal was something I was waiting for, but the big thing for me was seeing Jack as 'Workman' as now he'll be working along side Roger, which is a name Hurley might recognise.

Interesting to see where it all goes now. And still very disturbing seeing no beard on Frank.

Re: Lost 5x09: "Namaste"

I was listening to a LOST podcast i listen to regularly (not official podcast) referred to this 'look' Ben gives Sayid back when they first met in S2. I think we got a connection.

So at this point in Ben's timeline he's arrived at the Island and met Alpert after chasing his dead mother, and was told he could join the Natives but he has to be patient.
I guess this explains why I struggle so much following this show. I don't recall that scene at all. I've seen other references to it, but I can't for the life of me remember any encounter of Ben with the Others.

Sawyer and Jin were the ones that brought him in. The other guy wasn't with them, so they could've told Sayid everything.
I'm pretty sure that other guy did get out of the van with them.

And oh, just WTF does "Namaste" mean anyway?

They have to be somewhere and it doesn't look like they're with the Dharma Initiative. Maybe the Ajira crash survivors will run into them in the present. That's my best guess right now.

I didn't notice who was with Sawyer and Sayid in when he was brought in.

Re: Lost 5x09: "Namaste"

Thanks. I didn't notice whether or not the other guy was with them.
He was because I was thinking as they were driving, Sawyer could bring him up to speed and then when they got out of the van I was "Oh I guess not" beause the other guy was there.

New age/hippy folk love to use that term(which I find annoying)

Namaste, Namaskar or Namaskaram (Sanskrit: नमस्ते [nʌmʌsˈteː] from external sandhi between namaḥ and te) is a common spoken greeting or salutation in the Indian subcontinent. Taken literally, it means "I bow to you". The word is derived from Sanskrit (namas): to bow, obeisance, reverential salutation, and (te): "to you".[1] Namaskar is considered a slightly more formal version than namaste but both express deep respect. It is commonly used in India and Nepal by Hindus, Jains and Buddhists, and many continue to use this outside the Indian subcontinent.

Re: Lost 5x09: "Namaste"

I bet that Sayid and Young Ben are going to spend a lot of time together in that jail cell. Sayid will be tempted to just grab him through the bars and snap his neck, but instead he'll attempt to sway Ben back to the light side and ultimately fail.

Re: Lost 5x09: "Namaste"

In Ben's only flashback episode, 3X20 "Man Behind the Curtain", after arriving on the Island as a boy, at night he sees his dead mother calling to him outside the Sonic Fence. He goes out there in the darkness and bumps into Richard Alpert dressed as a savage. He wants to join the Natives but Alpert says he'll have to be very patient for that. Cut to about 15 years later when Ben helps the Purge kill off Dharma.

I especially like the scene towards the end with Jack and Sawy...uh...I mean LaFleur. The tension was palatable and conveyed genuine ambivalence the characters have for eachother even more so now than before. And because I always like when Sawyer puts Dr Self-Righteous in check.
To clear something up, did you mean "palpable," as opposed to "palatable?"

As far as the connection between Lil' Ben and Sayid, I'm not entirely certain that Ben would have known about Sayid earlier in the series. The way that this season has shown time travel memory to work is that, upon finding something out, that memory, in essence, is decoupled from the timeline, and travels to the "present." So, if anything, when Ben finally comes to on the Hydra Island, he would instantly be aware that Sayid is in the past.
