I realize most of you have given up on Lost, and think it sucks because we never get answers, only more questions. I still love the show and thought the premiere last night was pretty cool. Definitely gives me something to look forward to on Thursdays, stupid writer’s strike…
The season picks up where it ended. The group thinks they are about to be rescued. Desmond meets up with Sawyer, Bernard, Hurley, Sayid, and Juliet. He tells them that Charlie is dead and that his final message was that it was not Penny’s boat. Sawyer wants to use the walkie-talkie to warn Jack, but Sayid says no, that the boat will be monitoring their communications. As they argue, Hurley grabs the walkie and tosses it into the ocean. He says they have to hurry back.
During their brisk walk across the island, Hurley gets separated from the group and finds the creepy house of Jacob. As he approaches, someone pops up into the window and he runs away. He runs and still ends up in front of the house. He closes his eyes and when he reopens them the house is gone, but Locke is there. Locke takes Hurley back to the group, and says he will help stop Jack from making the wrong decision.
Once they are all reunited, Jack sees Locke and tackles him. He takes Locke’s gun and Locke says that Jack will not shoot him. Jack pulls the trigger only to find the gun to be empty.
Locke explains that the new group coming to the island is hostile and that they should all go to the Barracks, which the Others have abandoned. The people who join him are: Hurley, Claire and Aaron, Rousseau, Ben (who asks Jack if he can go with them since he is tied up and being led around by Rousseau, it was a funny moment), Alex, Karl, and Sawyer. As Sawyer walks away from the main group, Kate asks him what he is doing. He tells her that he is doing what he always does, survivin’. It is interesting to see the changed in Sawyer over the past few episodes.
Later, Kate and Jack sit at the front half of the plane, and the talk about how Jack was thinking about how it seems like so long ago since he, Kate, and Charlie came up here to find the pilot. They hear a helicopter and see a man parachute down. They meet the guy and as he takes off his helmet, he looks at Jack and says “Are you Jack?” I will have more on him in a bit.
The flashforward starts with Jack watching TV and pouring himself a drink, while the tv shows a police chase of a red camero. When the cops finally get the car stopped, the person gets out and it turns out to be Hurley. When they point their guns at him, he yells “I am one of the Oceanic Six.”
Later, as the cop interrogates him, he says that his partner, Ana Lucia was on the flight and asks if Hurley knew her. Hurley lies and says that he did not. When the cop leaves, the room fills up with water, and we see a diver with “They Need You” written on his hand. Hurley screams for help and the cops comes in asking if Hurley is trying to get sent to a mental institution. Hurley says yes.
At the nut-hut, Hurley plays Connect Four and someone tells him that he has a visitor. The man says he is from Oceanic Airlines and that he wants to put Hurley in a better facility. Hurley asks to see his business card and the man says he forgot them. He then asks about “them” which causes Hurley to freak out.
Outside of the crazy place, Hurley is told that someone is watching him. He looks over and sees Charlie. He starts to freak out and Charlie slaps him. Charlie tells Hurley that he did not tell him he was going to die because he did not want Hurley to try and stop him. He then says “They Need You” which again causes Hurley to freak out and he closes his eyes and does the whole, “you’re not there.” He counts to five, Charlie sighs and disappears.
In the last flashforward, Hurley is shooting baskets and Jack comes in. He tells Hurley he just wanted to check on him (he also mentions he is thinking of growing a beard), but Hurley does not trust him. Hurley knows that Jack is there to make sure Hurley does not tell. Hurley then says that he should have went with Jack, not Locke. Also, that they should go back to the island. Jack says no and leaves.
-Who are the Oceanic Six? We know that Jack, Kate, and Hurley are three of them.
-Apparently Hurley thinks his group made the wrong decision, and I wonder what could possibly happen…
-Did anyone watch Eli Stone and see the commercial for Oceanic Airlines? I went to the website and then the other one, which is a game you can play that gives you more information. I will post more about it as I do more with it. Anyways, funny thing is, on the flyoceanicair.com site, you can download a press release and it has a phone number, which I called and got the message of the lady who signed it. I think if you figure out the password, then you probably get more information…
Anyways, let me know what you though of the show.
