Dude, You're Not a Zombie, Right? {LOST Thoughts}

Once again, I can't stop myself from posting about LOST. I don't know if this will be a set in stone weekly thing (y'all know how I am with commitments), but for now I think another list on LOST is in order. ***Beware of potential SPOILERS if you have not watched last night's episode yet (what in the world prevented you?!?!?)***

*As you can see, Hugo here has assumed the leadership position, so that's pretty great. (Miles to resurrected Sayid)

*Sawyer, the ultimate lone wolf, busting out of the temple. Scary Sawyer is still worrying me.

*Sayid, the torturer, being tortured. Ay, Yi, Yi!

*Kate going back to pick up Claire at the bus stop and then going with her to the adoptive mom that changed her mind. Poor Claire!

*Jack feeling responsible for everything and still trying to fix everything. Can you say control issues? But it was rather stand-up when he swallowed to pill to test the Japanese Other Other leader.

*You're not a zombie, right? (Hurley to Sayid)

*No, I am not a zombie. (Sayid to Hurley)

*Your private talks kinda freak me out 'cuz they usually leave me having to do something I don't quite understand. (Hurley)

*We'll be in the food court if you need us. (Miles)

*Kate watching Sawyer in his old Dharma house.

*Kate and Sawyer talking on the pier. How sweet was that? Sniff, Sniff.

*Um, hello...Ethan (!!!!)

*Things don't look so good for Sayid's future, since he has been claimed by The Darkness.

*Um, hello...The Darkness happened to Jack's sister too (?!?!?!?!) Did we know Jack had a sister?

*Gun wielding, mangy hair wearing, Island Claire. (Squeal!!)

After last week's two hour LOST extravaganza, plus the recap, I felt a bit robbed with only one hour last night. I know, I'm greedy. It's just too good though and one hour at a time with a week in between is hard to reconcile myself to.

I've made peace with the two realities/timelines and now think it's really cool to be able to see what's happening real-time on the island and how their destinies are playing out back in LA. What a treat!

Remember last week's premiere post when I mentioned Matthew Fox's ( AKA Blinky McBlinkerson) heavy reliance on blinking to convey extra emotion? And how that bugs me? Well, Scott totally noticed it last night, I've converted him. HA! To prove my point, in the scene where Jack drinks tea with the Japanese Other Other Leader, I counted like 11-15 blinks before he even took a sip, like, in less than 5 seconds. That, my friends, is too much. Yes, apparently I am a Blink Nazi.

Now, I'm curious, what were some of your favorite scenes or quotes from last night? Do you read recaps or visit LOST websites to untangle your brain after watching? Which ones are your favorites (from one LOST junkie to another)?

  1. Claire is Jack's half sister remember?! Randy forgot that too, which is funny because I'm usually the one who can't remember anything from week to week.

    I loved all these same quotes you wrote down, everything Hurley says is funny.

    I thought the same thing when I saw Ethan...what the?

    I don't know how the writers keep anything on this show straight, it all feels like a crazy drug trip or dream to me.

    Scary Sawyer is scaring me too. I'm glad he's mourning Julia, that's sweet, but I always loved him with Kate.

  2. I have no idea what is going on, so no helpful tips from me. In fact, Brian, who, prior to meeting me, has not ever watched Lost. That has quickly been remedied and he is now on Season 2. I might have to watch with him because I am absolutely CLUELESS!!! I might just give up until I can watch the entire series all at once.

    I think I told you last week, but the recaps on ew.com help me a lot!

    Jill, I watch the show with a bunch of friends and were talking about the fact that there is so much to keep straight and someone said that they have people whose only job is to keep a record of what happens with each character when, so that all references of the past in the show are accurate. It was mentioned that Ben had given two different birthdates on two different occasions, but no one knew whether that was a writers slip or intentional...

  3. That's right, I forgot about Claire and Jack being half-sies. Hmmm...so Island Claire is full of The Darkness?

    I checked out the ew.com site and liked their recaps, etc.--thanks.

    Watching it all on DVD is such a treat--no commercials and you don't have to wait a week between episodes.

  4. So what about the fact that Jack's Dad's body is missing in the new LAX timeline? Remember he was part of the island, and now his daughter (Claire) is on the dark side. Will Jack be converted? Naw, I don't think so. But really, is the body missing because it can't leave the island? And while I'm on the subject of Claire... com'on, who would ask the person who just held them at gunpoint when she was 8 months pregnant, and apparantly scared the "baby" out of her, to accompany her to meet the adoptive parents? I didn't buy it. And when the policemen came to the hospital to question Claire about the friend who signed in with her, do you really think the police would just take her word for it and not ask any of the nurses or other staff is she was still around?
    Picky things, I know, but I'm just sayin'.

  6. Rhonda: I know, what has happened to Christian??? Good question.

    Your thoughts abut Claire going with Kate were funny--I didn't think about it like that. I might not bond with a gun-toting girl that took over my cab either. I have realized though how much I've missed Claire--though Island Claire might be dangerous. And evil?
