BEWARE! HERE THERE BE SPOILERS!
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk LOST!
Are you like me on Thursday nights? Does your mind go crazy, and it’s impossible for you to calm down and go to sleep, even an hour or two after the show? That’s how I am. This show is crazy. I can’t remember a TV show ever having this kind of effect on me.
I’ve decided to start doing this Thursday night post, so that all my Lostie friends can talk about the show all in one place, so we can see what each other is saying, instead of trying to follow e-mail threads. So leave your reactions, theories and favorite moments in the comments section and we’ll discuss. In the meantime, I’ll get us started with a few quick thoughts.
I thought this was the most shocking line of the night:
Kate - “No, you will not put my son on the stand!"
Say what?!?! Was that a goosebump inducing, jaw-dropping moment or what? But then came this line…
Little Boy – “Hi Mommy!”
Kate – “Hi Aaron.”
Wha…ha…hat? Wow! Well, it has to be Claire’s baby – because of his age, there is no way that he could be Kate’s son. The time frames just aren’t right. So is Aaron part of the Oceanic 6? If so, that means there’s only one person left to discover. It’s obvious why Claire would want him to get off the island at all costs. There’s no hope for him there. No friends, no life, no future. But why was she unable to go with him? They must have had to concoct a story about Claire dying in childbirth or something , to explain her absence from the survivors, and explain Aaron’s survival. Also, once this all was revealed, it made me appreciate the foreshadowing and irony of the moment between Kate and Claire towards the beginning of this episode, when she asks Kate to pick up Aaron and she said she’s never been good with kids.
Speaking of the Oceanic 6 – did you notice that during the trial they mentioned there were 8 survivors. Does that mean that 2 survivors died – according to their fabricated tale? Or were there really 8 survivors and the count includes non-Oceanic people like Ben and Juliet or Desmond? Or does it reference Michael and Walt? Speaking of which, I wonder when they are going to show up again?
I thought this was the most heartbreaking line of the night:
Lawyer – “Are you in love with Miss Austin?”
Jack – “No… not anymore.”
Well…I thought it was heartbreaking, until the scene later where he said he was lying. I don’t normally enjoy stories that involve love triangles, but I must admit the Jack-Kate-Sawyer thing has me hooked. I’ll be very interested to see if either one of them end up with her at the end of all of this.
And finally, here's my favorite line of the night:
Hurley – “You just totally Scooby-Doo-ed me didn’t you?”
