Awesome episode!!!!

The best part was that there was no Jack/Kate/Sawyer!!!!!!

Would have liked to have seen more of Locke, Sayid, Sun, Jin, and Vincent. I miss Vincent, where has he been?????

Indeed. I've missed the old gang. I was immensely relieved when we saw a bunch of them in the first five minutes... but then the rest of the episode went mostly to Desmond. Still, excluding Jack, Kate and Sawyer (after they've dominated nearly all the episodes preceding this one) was a good choice. Gives Sawyer and Kate some quality time on a canoe, and Jack some time to settle in Othersville.

Speaking of people we didn't see... Nikki and Paolo's absence was pretty glaring, considering they were part of the expedition. Not that anyone missed them!

I'm fairly certain Vincent will be back. Whether or not he'll get that flashback, though, that's the real question.

By the way, a Charlie fan lamented Desmond's declaration at the end of last night's episode. But personally, I think Desmond's statement that Charlie is destined to die is the best thing that could have ever happened to his character... because I think it means that keeping him alive will become a key part in our survivors' attempts to change their fates.

I suspect that last night episode took place around the same time that Jack was enticed to operate on Ben.

As for Charlie, just because he is destined to die, doesn't mean he is the next person to die. For all we know he outlives the other Oceanic 815 survivers, gets rescued, brought back to civiliation and gets mobbed to death by Drive Shaft fans.

The latter is played by Jason Isaacs, who's so good at playing villains like Lucius Malfoy and Tavington in "The Patriot". Great show, well worth a Netflix rental.

Back on topic. I echo the rest of you in that it's great to be back on the beach. Much as I love this show, I was really surprised at how much pain I felt for Desmond. Anybody who's ever suffered a broken heart like that can relate, I suppose.

There's something that's been bothering me for a while. When Sayid, Jin, and Sun went to go get Jack, Sawyer, Kate, and Hurley... last I saw of them, Sun had just shot someone. Then, there were scenes at the Others' facility of them bringing back the woman who Sun shot. But what happened to Sun and friends?? Next thing I knew, they were back at the beach. Did the Others completely leave them alone? How come there's no story, or even a brief explanation, of how they got from Point A (Sun shooting that woman) to Point B (back on the beach)?

Did I miss a scene?

Glen from Lostpedia
"Sun, Jin, and Sayid set a trap at the Pala Ferry, and Sun was confronted by Colleen, who told Sun that the Others are not the enemy, and that Sun is not a killer. Nevertheless, Sun shot Colleen, mortally wounding her, and then fell out of the sailboat and into the ocean when Tom fired two shots at her. Jin carried Sun back to shore, and the Others sailed away in their stolen boat. ("The Glass Ballerina")

After they returned to camp, Sun took care of Aaron when Claire went to swim in the ocean. However, when Claire did not come back, Desmond ran to the water and rescued her, moments before she drowned to death. ("Flashes Before Your Eyes") "

Last week highlights said this week's episode will answer three burning questions of the series.

If I had to guess:

1) What Jack's tatoos say
2) What happen to the people taken from the tail section
3) What Ethan truely did

By the way saw Ryan on KITV 10pm News after Lost.

In the latest official podcast, Lindeloff and Cuse both rolled their eyes at the "three big answers" pitch that ABC put together for this episode. Whatever the answers were, they weren't what the show's creators were focused on.

Anyway. Tonight's episode. Jen and I again detail our thoughts on our blog. Not the strongest episode this season, that's for sure. Jack's a "lonely leader" (is the larger plan finding a successor for Ben?), Jack and Juliet are getting friendly, Kate loves Jack and Sawyer knows, and Alex and Karl are star-crossed lovers. The Others have a legal system of some kind (and capital punishment), and they find Alcatraz as dreadful as our survivors do.

But compared to last week's episode, a bit flat. And next week's episode will reportedly be a rare foray into some "lighter moments" -- which could either work great (like the occasional funny X-Files episode), or be a disaster.

It was neat to finally see the Thailand set (Fort Street) on screen. And the digitally inserted islands crowding Rabbit Island on the Waimanalo horizon!

The whole "Jack's tattoo" thing didn't hang together. So this Achara woman is some sort of native psychic tattooist? Right. And she's supposed to be Thai... but she tattoos Jack with magical Chinese characters? I suppose I could do the fanboy thing and create a complicated retcon to explain that she's part of a supernatural overseas Chinese community in Thailand, etc etc, but it's not worth my time. I'm just disappointed that the writers didn't even bother to keep their Asian cultures straight. If they wanted a mystic Chinese tattoo story, then they should have just set the whole thing in China. Hong Kong would have worked. Why in the world did they decide to use Phuket, other than that it's a place lots of Americans would know?

'Cuz it's a place where lots of people worldwide go to "escape" their own lives? 'Cuz it conjures a similar parallel setting to the island Jack's currently on? Best guess: 'Cuz it could be shot cheap on the beach on the Windward side with the quick construction of a few bamboo huts and some post-production CGI islands in the background.

I agree though; the flashback story was kind of off to me. The Achara character was ill-conceived and poorly acted. But I may be biased; I am not a Bai Ling fan! I can't understand how she continues to get work when there are many better, and more attractive Asian actresses out there!

I don't think she is bad looking, but I agree there are many more attractive Asian actresses, but maybe Bai Ling just fit the odd, quirky role they needed to fill. Is it me or did Bai Ling get a boob job??

Bai Ling may be a B- or even C-list actress (or perhaps lower), but quirky and sorta-famous enough to get some attention/publicity for Lost, as already seen here on HT.
I strongly advise folks to watch the upcoming episodes carefully, as you just never know who you might see in either a speaking role or just a cameo; perhaps even in partial disguise. Some very very big stars have been on the set in the past couple of months.

I enjoyed this ep. Not a big fan of Bai Ling but it was a pleasant surprise to see her again....like, "Hey, you're still working!"

LikaNui, I'm taking your advice and will keep my eyes on Lost.

This episode was fun and we got more information on Hurley's background. The car was cool and the theme song "Shambala" by Three Dog Night is one of my favorites from the 1970s.

I was wondering when "Delenn" was going to return.....

Good episode.

Flashback stuff concerning Hurley. Seeing a Mr. Cluck store getting hit by a meteor. Cheech Marin as Hurley's long lost dad.

Back on the island, Kate and Sawyer make it back to the camp. Vincent finds something that leads Hurley to an overturned VW van.

Hurley grabs Jin to work on the VW van, then Sawyer joins in and then later Charlie joins in.

Then we have Sawyer teaching Jin English while the both of them drinking beer.

I am suprised that gas in the VW van was still there after all this time.

A fun episode. I liked it a lot. Any episode that brought us back to our old friends on the beach would've been good, but the fact that it was Hurley centric and showcased Jorge Garcia's comic talents was great. Cheech Marin was a nice touch, and he played Hurley's dad in a wonderfully understated way, again giving Jorge most of the spotlight.

Sure, there were no big answers revealed (except Danielle's much belated realization that Alex is still around, something we've known for months), no big pieces of the puzzle (save, perhaps, the map with a road with serious switchbacks), and more clever lines than you can count. But it was a fun ride, and the overriding theme of "hope" hopefully applies to where "LOST" goes from here.

As usual, Jen and I posted our take online.

From the last few episodes, there is a hint that something happened a few years that has trapped the people on the island. Say maybe around 2001 or so.

Juliet has been on the island since that time. Tom mentions something about the sky turning purple (doesn't say when). While it has been mention that Ethan was a surgeon, having Jack fall from the sky was a miracle for Ben. Desmond probally came on the island around that time. And last night's episode finding the VW van it may have crashed around that time frame.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Breechcraft also crashed during that time too.

mistakenly posted this in the Lost sightings thread...

anybody see last night's episode? i'm driving myself nuts trying to figure out which steep hillside was used to kickstart that van.

by the way, i think it's great that they used the classic beach VW wagon...it's so vintage Hawaii...

That was at Kualoa Ranch, back in the valley. Absolutely gorgeous area, eh?
Like others here, I really enjoyed last night's episode and I particularly agree with Ryan's comment about "the overriding theme of hope". Some of the recent episodes have been very dark, violent and negative, so last night was far more pleasant to watch. I also enjoyed seeing more of the original cast we all learned to like. Hopefully this will remain the focus of upcoming episodes.

i had this stupid grin on my face the whole time. the whole episode made me smile, from hurley's determination to his heartfelt hug to welcome sawyer back to sawyer's attempts to teach jin english and drinking beer together. it was all good.

EXCEPT that stupid part with the meteor hitting the restaurant...which i THINK was the dillingham popeyes in disguise, right? somebody back me up here...

Yes, it was the Popeye's Chicken on Dillingham, which played Mr. Cluck's the first time it was depicted last season. Of course, no chicken restaurants were harmed during the filming of that episode. Fictional Asian newsreporters and camerapeople, on the other hand...

There were too many funny lines to count. Roger Workman is already a fan favorite. I still give top prize to Jorge, though. "I UNDERSTAND!" to Jin, trying to communicate in English. And, of course, "No! NO! NO-O-O!" upon hearing that his mother has "needs."

by the way, i'm fairly sure that no one in the history of television reporting has actually yelled, "CUT!" as fake reporter Tricia Tanaka (aka Sung Hi Lee) did. besides that whole interview segment/meteor strike it was a great episode.
