    Re: the truce breaking. It looks like Amy and Paul snuck off the reservation for a romantic picnic, and thus intruded on the Natives' territory. The pair of Natives came across them and were going to kill them both for trespassing. .... What is the show "about" now? It's about the "war" coming, either between Ben and Widmore for control of the Island, or the Others and the present-day Dharma for control of the Island, or a new yet unseen party. Wasn't there a ComicCon thing about Dharma recruiting new employees to retake the Island in 2008 or something?

    I thought Horace's line about "Jim" not being "DHARMA material" tied in neatly with this year's ARG aboout recruiting new DHARMA members.

    Lots of the Dharma stations are beyond the sonic fence. I think she was just having a picnic.

    ^^ Maybe they're allowed to travel along the roads but not leave the roads. There's also the subway to consider!

    Above Average.

    The high-light was the few seconds with the statue, I was excited about that before everyone got ripped away. :mad: The scene between Sawyer and Richard was great too, and it was nice seeing more Dharma stuff. I just really hope they don't go back to the Jack/Kate/Sawyer/Juliet love quadrangle.

    Poor Juliet, she is everyone's second choice. :(

    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?

    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.

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

    THREE YEARS with Dharma? :rommie: 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. :p

    I'm loving this show more than ever now that they've dropped the flashback structure.
    The statue has pointed ears! It's a Dominion invasion! :eek:

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

    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 ;)

    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?

    Arrgh...so clear now...the island is a Goa'uld mothership that got off course and crashed in the Pacific. :rommie:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
