    On my way home tonight I was wondering who will be featured in tonight's episode. I figured it might be Jack with more than likey a flash forward and then I figured this season might be all flash forwards since mostly everyone has had their flashback episodes in the past.

    Tonight was a good surprise, it was a flash back of 4 different new people to the island plus a scene with someone off the island.

    Most of the flashbacks take place around the time they found the other Flight 815 underwater. One flashback notes that someone found a polar bear skeleton in a Tunsia desert, with a collar that has a Dharma logo on it.

    At least Locke asked about the black smoke monster. He didn't get an answer.

    So the big mystery is why or who wants Ben?

    We were very happy with this week's episode. I was kinda worried after the season premiere, but... hot damn, I'm fully on board for this ride. As usual, we've blogged our reaction.

    Talking Re: "Lost" - Season 4: Episode & Storyline Discussion

    Oh! And if you'll pardon the plug, I'm also happy (and pleasantly horrified) to announce that Jen and I have also resumed our "LOST" podcast, "The Transmission." It's "LOST" talk for your ears! Looks like we'll be blogging right after the episode, then after waiting a day to let things percolate, we'll sit down to chat and discuss reader/listener comments.

    I just posted our podcast for this week's episode, "Confirmed Dead." And, as I mentioned above, we liked it a lot. If you use iTunes to manage your music and/or podcasts, click here to subscribe!

    Yaaaay Ryan and Jen, I can't wait to give it a listen later.
    I'm disgusted and repulsed, and I can't look away.

    Tonight's episode had so many surprising twists and turns to rival even last week's one. Sayid working for Ben? Sheesh! Hurley tied up but not really? Some people leaving the island. The helicopter works.

    Looks like the capitol crowd scene may show up next week.... I think.

    Also caught Ryan and Jen's podcast this past week and spent 2 days catching up. And now also back on my iTunes.

    After tonight's episode the Oceanic Six so far includes:
    1. Jack
    2. Hurley
    3. Sayid

    Even though Kate was shown to be off the island at the end of last season, I doubt it that she is part of the Oceanic Six. For her to be in the famous spotlight from being rescued would sooner or later be caught by the US Marshals.

    As far as who was in the coffin from last season? Likey suspects would be of course Hurley or Sayid, or one of the remaining 3 Oceanic Six yet to be revealed. Or the four new guys (Frank, Dan, Miles or Charlotte) who are after Ben.

    Weird stuff:
    The difference in the times it took for the rocket payload to get to Dan's place measured on the ground and within the rocket itself.

    I guess Jacob's cabin comes and goes.

    In the flashforward Sayid is a hitman working for Ben. So I guess the people Sayid are killing are Ben's enemies on the outside world.

    Loved it. Jen and I blogged our reaction here. International intrigue, double-crossed double-crossers, romance, time discrepancies... what's not to love?

    Hurley disappointed me greatly. Tubby, you make me sad.

    I think Desmond is going to be the next to die The reaction from the freighter folks when he was pressing about Penny was telling. I think they were sent by her dad and the photo was so that they could make sure he couldn't blend in with either the "natives" or the 815ers. What I'm left with not understanding is why he's flying over there if he sees the future - maybe he can't see his own death, or maybe he can and is gonna leave Penny a message? argh... I'm kinda hoping Des, Sayid and Ben's "contact" are bada** enough to kick some freighter butt (but I gotta admit, I kinda dig the pilot and Daniel). Except, Ben's contact (or who I suspect is the contact) is someone that we all view (or at least I do) as a traitor, so I wonder what he says to Sayid...

    I'm not gonna touch the time difference issues. Im still wrapped around Sayid's hair.

    And Ben LIVES! Didn't see that coming, let alone that Sayid would agree to work for him to keep his "friends" safe. It sounds like everyone is keeping the same secret, but play different parts in the secret. Does this mean all of the freighter folks die? Miles I can see dying early on cuz he's a tard.

    I really wanted to see Nadia. I hope Ben didn't reference to her at the end

    I am thinking that maybe Ben's inside man on the boat might be Michael. As it stands Ben does not know that the helicopter is in working order.

    Up until tonight's episode I figured Kate wouldn't be back in the world as Kate but as someone else.

    Well it seems that I was wrong. The flash forward tells the story of Kate's legal issues after they have been rescued. During Kate's trial Jack relates the tale of the crash which is way different what we have been seeing for the last 4 seasons.

    And some how Kate is now taking care of Aaron. So did something happen to Claire? Or did Claire wanted Aaron to live in the outside world?

    Back on the island Miles seems to have his own agenda, he is willing to take money from Ben and tell his bosses that Ben is dead.

    Yes, and Jack's reluctance to see Aaron is curious too. Is Jack somehow going to be responsible for separating Aaron from Claire? At least now we know who Kate had to get back to the night she meets Jack outside of LAX in the flash forward from last season. Lots of interesting twists and turns tonight!
    No, I'm not the Larry Price, I just happen to have the same name.

    Couple of things (just beginning to check my usual list of LOST chats...):

    Forgot for a moment that Aaron is Jack's nephew, then remembered...

    Also, from the teaser for next week, if there is some kind of helicopter "incident," (crash or otherwise), at least we know Sayid survives from last week's episode.

    My wife and I blogged our thoughts in detail last night. Tonight we'll be recording our podcast. I definitely think Jack's reluctance to see Aaron relates to guilt over something that happened to Claire. But I think the turnaround we know is coming -- where he goes from "we're never going back" to "we have to go back" -- relates to his ultimate discovery of his relationship to her.

    At least, I hope so, 'cause I hate to think Claire is dead. Desmond did see her get on the helicopter, so...

    Anyone recognize the street and house we see Kate live in?

    One thing I can't figure out is why Kate's trial took place in California. The crimes she is accused of doing didn't take place there.

    And her plea agreement kind of makes her unwilling to go with Jack back to the island.

    ...ok, I'm dying to know... what's the street/area where Kate's house was?!?!? Looks waialae-iki'ish (is that a word? ) ..but can't place it.

    Damn this season is a rocking!!!

    Jack and Claire are half-siblings; their dad is Christian Shephard. You find this out in the S3 episode Par Avion.

    Just posted our latest podcast. One of the questions that comes up: What happened to the supposed wreckage of Oceanic 815 that was found in the trench? The discovery of the plane and bodies was international headline news. But in this latest episode, it looks like the official story is the plane crashed on an island in the South Pacific.

    If the survival of the Oceanic Six was such a big deal, a pretty huge conspiracy would have been revealed. We know Frank knew the pilot wasn't the pilot, and we know Charlotte in Tunisia didn't believe the news reports, and we had the Find815 ARG... so I hope they get to that this season.

    I didn't even think about that! Me thinks I should screw on my critical thinking cap tighter.

    It would be amusing if Kate really did get preggers with Sawyer's baby and decided to name him Aaron, in honor of Claire's Aaron.
    I'm disgusted and repulsed, and I can't look away.

    Jack did say that the plane landed in the water and then they swam to shore. How far away was the island from where the plane was found is another question.

    Watched Eggtown a second time this morning. Early on in the episode Jin was looking at a map and asking about Albuquerque. And I thought about Bugs Bunny and his famous line about taking not taking that left turn at Albuquerque.

    Albuquerque is also where Kate robbed that bank, and where Sawyer set up a bank account for his old girlfriend. "LOST" has a subset of North American cities that a lot of things and characters tend to converge.

    The hill in the background does look like the hill that is to the east of UH Manoa (would that be St. Louis Heights?).
