Hrm, that could explain the "lists"

the more and more I am convinced Egyptian mythology plays a big part in this Island
Tunisia (where the donkey wheel takes you) is also vaguely in the neighborhood of Egypt. Maybe ancient inhabitants of the Island transported themselves to Tunisia via the donkey wheel, and eventually made their way to Egypt, where they helped shape Egyptian mythology.
In ancient times, Egypt had contact with the people of Tunisia (though it wasn't called that at the time), and (according to Wikipedia) there were a couple pharaohs from the region, as well as contingents in the Egyptian army and priests in the Egyptian religion.

Just saw on Lostpedia that in "Jeremy Bentham", when Locke goes to visit Hurley, the picture Hurley was painting was this:

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

The kids and I watched it again this morning. It struck me that perhaps Sawyer, if he had taken the sub ride to the mainland, could have made it to his childhood home and stopped his mother from getting conned and changing his own history. I know Daniel says it can't be done but if it were me I'd certainly want to try. Course I don't remember what year that all happened.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

Gave it an above average. Aside from the constant "three years ago" "three years from now" crap, I thought it was a really good episode. Sawyer was pretty clever throughout, finally putting his con-artist past to good use. Not only that, but this is one of the few times when someone bothered to remember what's been going on on the island and used it to their advantage!

I didn't really think they could come up with a decent reason for the lost in time crew to end up as dharma goons, but they did it. We got some more insight in to the dharma people, a view of the statue, and some mysterious stuff from richard. I wonder how he deals with the new info from sawyer? Seeing Charlotte as a child was kind of predictable.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

I dunno if this is an original idea, but it occurred to me that The Incident is going to be when the time-travelers use the Orchid/Swan to return to the present, which will make the Swan go screwy, and probably also create the infertility problem (since Amy gave birth fine in 1977).

I like that idea.

I'm hoping though that the baby issues are due to Ben (and Others) releasing the gas and causing the issue. Being obsessed with reversing that condition he helped cause would humanize him a bit and reveal a vulnerability.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

I had the same thought as Mr Light, based around Faraday.

Although a few people ave said they thought the mumbling was Charlotte related, I'm hoping there's something more to it.

Thats where I think the story conflict could become interesting for Faraday.

He's the guy that really knows about time travel and believes or knows that he has a set path laid out for him. But then... he could begin to lose faith in that, or open his mind to the idea of choosing to try change that path. Even if Lost doesn't go too over the edge with time travel conflict and stays within the idea that time can't be changed they could still get into the idea of Faraday entertaining the idea of changing it for the greater good. But then choosing not to do it.

Or it could be that he chooses to try and change the past and ends up being responsible for something bad happening that had always happened. Say, for example, the childbirth issue.

That's a stretch... but it'd be an interesting concept for Faraday.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

The Swan orientation film was made in 1980, according to Lostpedia (as I don't have the DVDs handy to recall). So it's extremely likely that our favourite DHARMA infiltrators and Oceanic survivors back in 1977 are linked to the cause of the Incident. I wonder even if it has something to do with the old Frozen Donkey Wheel (and related to the beginning of "Because You Left"), as its powers appeared very similar to the Discharge at the end of season 2.

Speaking of 1977, I wonder if during the DHARMA years we'll see "Jim" make a Star Wars-related quip and have some of the DHARMA employees give him a strange few looks...

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

Hmm that's interesting... Sawyer's group arrive at Dharma in 1974... 3 years later the Oceanic Five arrive... 3 years later the Incident Video is made... coincidence? Maybe what they do in 1977 jumps them forward to 1980 where the disaster happens before they jump to present day, or their actions in 1977 actually have the disastrous consequences surface in 1980 because of the time dilation. It'd be kinda funny if Chang thinks the place is gonna blow when the Losties use the time travel in 1977 but then nothing happens... only for it to happen 3 years later!

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

It's possible the Incident actually occurs in 1977 itself, allowing the DHARMA Initiative three years to either build the Swan from scratch or adapt it with a computer and button and clock etc. in time for the Orientation film to be made in 1980.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

Well if that statue is supposed to be the goddess of fertility, maybe it's destruction is what leads to women not being able to give birth.

The timelines don't match up though. The statue looks like it was long gone before Dharma got there, and in last weeks episode the baby was able to be born just fine.

I think it is something that happened because of Dharma, maybe their experiments on the island caused it, or the gassing by Ben and the Others.
