    There are six more weeks with a two hour finale! Don't fret! :techman: I think there's also one recap show thrown in the mix.

    A recap special or a clip show episode? If it's the latter, I'll pass. Clip shows suck. TNG's "Shades of Gray," for example....

    You must have missed the SG-1 clip shows then. You wouldn't even know that what they were. :techman:

    Probably a recap. A true clip show would be out of character.

    The others told Juliet they were located in Portland before they dragged her to the island.

    Yeah, but they later said they weren't (and were never Dharma anyway).

    Does Sayid know about the island's healing abilities? If I were him, I would've unloaded the gun into Ben, then chopped him up into many pieces and spread him across the island, maybe feed some parts to the animals.

    Or blow his brains out. Zombie rule. :p I can only assume that Sayid was seriously not right in the head when he did this, either through the trauma of returning to the Island seeing Young Ben or the "truth serum" or a combination of the two, because I really felt that he was out of character in this episode.

    ^ Haven't they been doing that with characters they are going to kill off? And I agree, he was out of character.

    I hope they are not building up to killing Sayid off. Because if they are they need to use him a lot better before then He has been sadly and badly underused this season.

    I know it was slow and harked back to classic Lost and the ending was predictable but I kinda thought something might happen to cause Sayid to reconsider what he was going to do.

    Lil' Ben has to revive obviously and like others say it must fuel his obsession with the island,however, this whole thing makes you wonder how Ben didn't recognise Sawyer ed co after the crash as an adult. Memory tripping or is that what fuelled his interest in the crashed ones?

    Anyway a good episode, tho slow it filled in a few gaps about Sayid but sadly underwhelming fill ins. So I'll rate it an average. Would have helped to throw in a few reveals or curve balls amongst the other characters if not the Sayid storyline.

    Plus I missed the flashbacks but am seeing a lack of connections to other cast in the flashbacks. Use to be cool to see someone in thr background who belonged in another person's story. ...Sigh...

    Who's to say Ben didn't recognize them? That guy never reveals all his secrets at once. :)

    Plus, the episode where they said that was called "Not in Portland", IIRC.

    It's so rare that I get to vote/comment in the Lost forum because of spoilers. But since Sky is doing such a good job of keeping us up to date with US airings at the moment... I didn't enjoy this episode as much as the others this season. I was a bit bored by Kate and Jack being back on the island, and the distracted glances across the Dharmaville bored me, too. On the up side I'm still enjoying Jim Lafleur. I hope Sawyer stays like this. I love Sayid and Naveen Andrews a great deal but I didn't really enjoy Naveen's acting when he was drugged. It's the first time I've never bought it. So, I'm letting it pass. I can't believe that someone from the Dharma group didn't start pondering the stuff he'd been telling them. Unless that's the reason one or two amongst them were so adamant they kill him. And finally, to end on a trivial note. Sayid looked mighty hot coming down those stairs in Moscow. That is all. :lol:

    I thought the scene where he shot lil Ben was played so that we were supposed to regard Sayid as being almost completely out of it. Without the truth serum, he probably would have restrained his impulse to kill lil Ben.

    Seems to me the point of the entire episode was to set up the final scene as being in-character, that that was really his true character.

    I agree. It shows Sayid as someone who will make the hard choices and will do what needs to be done. Everyone else has seemed to forget that Ben is an evil, lying, bastard who tormented & tortured them when they first crashed on the island. Had his minions kidnap and kill the losties from the front and tail sections of the plane and then he continued to manipulate them even when they got off the Island, forcing them to go back.

    Sayid knew that killing Ben, young or old, was the right thing to do. And if killing Ben as a kid prevented all the bad stuff from happening in the future, then that is even better.

    it's like the age old question, if you could go back in time and kill Hitler before he rose to power, would you do it?

    Sayid would.
