Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

E.E.P. Emergency Escape Protocol. There's underground tunnels throughout the Island. I can only assume there's some kind of transportation and you don't have to walk the entire way. Remember the Escape Hatch in the Staff? Remember the cabling map with all the underground tunnels? Remember the submarine which appears in a land-locked lake? Remember the still-smoldering cigarette when they discover the Pearl? Remember how Ben and Juliet magically disappear from the Pearl?

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

another excellent - i knew it was inevitable that Jack & Kate would show up @the end...and I wasn't looking forward to it. I wouldve enjoyed maybe one more episode of Sawyer & Juliet's 70s love shack.

but the time paradox stuff is what i really dine on. Things will start to fall into place quickly. Questions answered without realizing they were questions (how charlotte learned Korean, why certain people ended up on Ben's "list"). Soon preteen Ben will arrive on the island and we'll learn what turned him into a traitor for the Purge (besides his unloving father). If he falls for Juliet as a teen and then recruits Juliet again on purpose...well, that could mess up most folks' senses.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

Above Average. Next week (or two) looks as Excellent as it gets.

THREE YEARS with Dharma? The mind boggles. Didn't anyone think, "hey lemme get on that sub so I can make some well timed investments in brand spanking new companies named 'Microsoft' and 'Apple'"? Sawyer and Juliet are models of loyalty. Then again, we didn't see what Miles and Faraday got up to.

Sawyer's first meeting (right?) with Richard Alpert was great. Now the Losties are the ones making eerie, cryptic statements and freaking people out.

I'm loving this show more than ever now that they've dropped the flashback structure.
WE FINALLY SEE THE STATUE AGAIN. Three ****ing years waiting for another Statue appearance. Thank yew. Can't wait to see a screen grab! And now we know it was frickin' huge, to see it that far away.
The statue has pointed ears! It's a Dominion invasion!

I love how we're all Juliet shippers around here.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

This episode wasn't very well pieced together. I liked it well enough, but there was just something missing. This was Mark Goldman's first career directing credit, so I'll cut him some slack... but he's no Jack Bender!

Actually I recall earlier threads where a lot of people hated Juliet, which boggled my mind, but then a bunch of Juliet fans rose up in response

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

I assume that Rose & Bernard are dead now? They were traveling in time along with Sawyer & Co. so that means that they should have ended up stuck in 1974 along with the other losties, but if in the last 3 years Sawyer & Jin haven't found them then it is most likley that they died at the River's edge along with the last of the other survivors.


Or, I guess, the Other's might have found them and taken them in. Bernard & Rose as "hostiles" anyone?

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

Here's a theory for you. Maybe Richard IS Anubis.
Arrgh...so clear now...the island is a Goa'uld mothership that got off course and crashed in the Pacific.

What is the show "about" now?
It's "about" the notion that there are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Or Horace. Anyway, peeps shouldn't mess because they'll just mess things up.

Ultimately, humans need to gain the maturity to Leave the Island Alone.

Or, I guess, the Other's might have found them and taken them in. Bernard & Rose as "hostiles" anyone?
Adam and Eve?

...or the fact that Charlotte's corpse went, uh, somewheres, makes her a prime candidate for Eve-hood. Daniel will be along shortly to join her. If she's centuries in the past, it will be "shortly" from her perspective.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

Does anyone know what year the Purge was in? Sometime in the 90's right?

Back view of Anubis statue that presides over king Tut's tomb. Compare that with a still of the statue from last night's episode. The statue is pretty clearly Egyptian, especially with all the talk about the temple and the egyptian heiroglyphics everywhere.

If that is the case, then I'll be pissed! They are the heart-and-soul of the show, imo.

Sawyer is awesome in this episode. He and Jack are much stronger characters when Kate isn't around.

Re: Lost 5x08: "LaFleur"

There's no way Rose and Bernard were killed off-screen. It's just a matter of actor availability, they can't get the two of them to stand around as background extras. So at some point later in the season we'll probably get a Rose/Bernard centric episode showing their time-displaced misadventures over the entire season.

From another board:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tawaret

Tarawet:

...Taweret became seen, very early in Egyptian history, as a deity of protection in pregnancy and childbirth. Pregnant women wore amulets with her name or likeness to protect their pregnancies. Her image could also be found on knives made from hippopotamus ivory, which would be used as wands in rituals to drive evil spirits away from mothers and children...

This is an amazing comparison
