Jumbo wrote:Excellent episode and bridges the last season and this season well. Also did a nice job of confirming the connection between the Smoke Monster and the Man in Black.I agree that Christian is the key to the connection between the two realities. The interesting issue is how much awareness the characters have of the other reality. Obviously Juliet had a connection, and Desmond is Desmond. Jack has a least a subconscious awareness of, if not the island specifically, a "greater purpose" - a faithfulness that he never had in his prior life.The most straightforward explanation to Sayid coming back to life is that he's being inhabited by Jacob, since dead is dead.FLocke's telling of Locke's last thought was awesome.The whole "dust to keep out Smokey" thing is a little weird. So far we've seen it around the cabin, so there was some reason to keep him out of there before the line was broken. But, the people at the Temple were awfully concerned about the Man in Black, but Smokey lives under the Temple. (His home?) Perhaps MiB wasn't permitted back in the Temple in corporeal form.I'm intrigued to see the connection develop between the two realities. If a "war is coming," perhaps it is over which reality ultimately wins out. If the characters in each reality can choose their destiny, then there might be two alignments of the castaways. Sayid, for one, would rather have 815 not crash.

The other guy obviously doesn't need Locke's body.EDIT:OK - I guess the difference is that Jacob is dead and the other guy isn't. Do you suppose the MIB/smokemonster guy can only look like someone (Locke) who is dead?

I think MiB can only appear as someone once they're dead. Yemi was dead, Alex was dead, and he didn't appear as Locke until he was dead. Christian is also dead, and my guess is the MiB is him as well. Remember, it was Christian who showed Locke how to turn the wheel, setting in motion Locke getting kicked off the island, leading to his death, and giving the MiB the opportunity to appear as him.

There didn't seem to be any real opposition to Locke's plan. Where's the other side? Didn't anybody want to keep the castaways from getting back to the island?I suppose that the simplest explanation is that the "Get Locke Off the Island, Have Him Die, And Bring Him Back" plan was originally MiB's, but Jacob knew of it and coopted certain elements, like giving Hurley the guitar and encouraging him to get on the plane. Ben's and Eloise's motives are pretty straightforward, but I want to see more of Widmore.And yes, the guy with the missing arm is a member of the French team. http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Montand

justmebd wrote:Good stuff Jimbo, let me address your two annoyancesKate Finding Claire: One theme of the show has been the way the characters have interacted and "found" each other. This is just a natural progression of that theme. If Kate decided to go back and look for Claire, the Island would make sure she found her.
The Others: This has been a glaring weakness of the show since the second season. The Other are as tough or as weak as the writers need them to be from week-to-week. I remember by the end of the third season Calling Sayeed the new Captain Kirk. Kirk always went down to the planet, lost his shirt and got a red shirt killed. Sayeed gets built up as a bad ass, goes into the jungle, gets his ass kicked and is disarmed before punching somebody and running away. It happened almost every third or fourth episode for two solid seasons, not to mention his kidnapping by Rousseau in Season One.

if the other timeline is based on a world without Jacob, that interests me.

- Was Keamy's Arab associate the guy who had Sayid tortured in his restaurant a few seasons ago? If so, nice touch.
