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

I scanned some of the comment. Am I the only one that thinks Ben kills Locke when he "pays him a visit" because he realizes he is unwilling to recruit Jin to come back?
Also, does anyone think that the reason Ben is never afraid to die is because he's seen the future and knows when and how he dies? And that the reason he is so fast and loose with other peoples lives is because he knows that at some point in the future, they are dead, and he cannot make them die sooner or later?

I assumed it was, which makes you think, why would it allow them near it. Perhaps because of Richard? Possibility at least...
Or the same thing that happened to Danielle's team happened to the Others and they've been brainwashed/enlightened/smokemonstered.
Another good reason, that could explain why they are all crazy and want to protect the Island and are willing to kill for it, hrmmm, that would make a lot of sense

It could be but there are plenty of other structures (ruins) we've seen so there could be more than one temple.

I think he's confident about playing people. Like when he stopped the van and had the "outburst." He was playing them. I just finished watching again and he's definitely gaining more control over them again.

He's awesome!

Yeah, I posited this some time ago with regard to Ben. I was thinking specifically about the scene between him and Widmore from last season, where Widmore asks if he's come to kill him, and Ben says something like "We both know that's not possible". I was thinking that they both have some info from the future, which indicates that they're both alive at some point in the future, which means that nothing can be done to make them die before that point in the timeline.

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

nice ep.
hopefully fixing the wheel stops the time jumping for awhile.
watching so much trek, i kept flashing on the ep where Sisko gets stuck in time and watches his son age. and like Janeway, temporal stuff gives me a headache (but not a nosebleed).

i think a lot of fans will become more and more polarized as these stories wind up. ABC admits viewership is down, but luckily for us, the show is definitely going to see its full run - so score one for loyal fans. Too many good series dragged on way past their expiration date. Good to see a show that has a fully-realized plan.

I hope (and expect) to see many - if not most - characters again who we've seen bite the dust. The cosmic interconnectivity between all the myriad personalities is one of the joys of the show, imo - call it fate, predestination, karma - what goes around comes around (especially if you have to turn a wheel)

By the way, if there are Jeremy Davies fans out there, be sure to check him out in Million Dollar Hotel and CQ - he definitely takes interesting roles.

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

I don't think its a mystery how Locke dies; he hangs himself to convince the others to return. Remember when Jack-Beard reads the article of his death and is so visibly stricken? Locke killed himself to finally "get" to the O6. I'm sure we're going to get a very emotional sad-music scene of Locke getting up on the chair with the rope around his neck.

Poor.

Charlotte blurts out all of her backstory and then dies. Sorry, no way, not having that.

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

I agree the Charlotte angle was weak, although I have a feeling her story (and Miles') were messed up due to the strike last year. Oh, well. Now Charlotte has gone down into the depths of Libby. Hopefully we'll get more of both of their stories along the line.

I hope this is a bonus feature on the season 5 DVDs.

I see Charlotte more as Nikki and Paulo.

Ah, good. I wasn't the only person who thought that last night.

Charlotte and Miles were way more interesting and had a better intro than Nikki and Paulo ever dreamed of!

Faraday is almost Desmond-worth in interest though
