Re: Lost 5x05: "This Place is Death"

I'm just seeing the Island map now... let's see... the Looking Glass should be close to the Swan, not high up on the eastern shore. I always thought the Hydra was off the northern shore, but apparently the Via Dominus game version shows it on the south for some reason.

The Pearl, smugglers plane, and radio tower should all be in the Dark Territory on the eastern side of the Island, close to the Swan.

I always thought the Flame should be south of the Barracks since they came across it first in S3, but apparently the on-screen cabling map does show it in that location.

EDIT: Also the tail section should have crashed on the northern most tip of the Island.

Re: Lost 5x05: "This Place is Death"

Excellent episode. I was very happy to see Cerebrus again and I hope we see him/her/it again soon because that thing just kicks so much ass.

Re Christian: I don't think that Christian is Jacob as when Locke saw him in the cabin Christian told him that Jacob was elsewhere. Also, when Hurley saw the cabin he saw Christian sitting inside and then another eye appeared at the window.

Reviewing the Lostpedia page on Rousseau: After killing her teammates, she goes to the Radio Tower and changes the signal. Three days after that she gives birth. A week after that the black smoke column appeared and the Others took Alex.

If I recall tonight's ep correctly wasn't there a black column on the day she killed Robert? If so is this a continuity error, or Rousseau lying/misremembering her past?

Also, Rousseau claimed the Others infected her teammates with the sickness in S1. And we didn't see her hearing the Whispers for the first time, either.
The black smoke column was just Rousseau's camp fire in this episode IMO, not the Others column of smoke.

A lot of us thought it looked like Desmond.

I don't know. I assume it was the same eye we saw of the man sitting in the chair in "The Man Behind the Curtain."

The biggest problem is The Looking Glass. It's like half way around the island in that map.

Yet Sayid came upon the cable in less than a day. Des and Charlie got there quickly too. And Hurley was there! It was way closer to the beach.

Also, The Pearl should be just north of The Swan.

The Orchid, The Flame are pretty much right if the beach camp can be assumed correct though.

Re: Lost 5x05: "This Place is Death"

wow, my wife and I had a different reaction, we found this ep kind of boring. First of all the O 6 stuff is lame because we all know they are going to go back, we are just waiting and watching them go through the motions. The eloise hawking reveal was not a big deal, we all figured that out a couple weeks ago.
And on the island, while it is neat to see that stuff with danielle, well, we already knew it all...it's like we heard about it, then we see it..ok, thanks, I guess.

The only interesting stuff for me was the locke scene with christian.

Anyone else notice the hieroglyphics on the temple? They looked like the same sort in the hatch when the counter ran down.

I was watching it in HD, but my PVR can't record the HD channels. So I started freaking out about how I couldn't pause it to get a better look

Then you're a jerk We just started learning stuff about her!

I realize Charlotte's not a fan-favourite but I'm fascinated by her. Then again, my favourite character is Juliet so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

When Locke goes back to the real world, will he be wheelchair-bound again?

I think so! But not for the reason he was previously wheelchair-bound before.

Now his leg is toast. And I think that'll be why.

The Emperor has no clothes.

Terrible episode. An hour of nonsense.

Charlotte was so bad (dialogue) that I started laughing during her death scene.
