Notes from the Lost podcast, The Hunting Party

Wherein I practice the lost art of transcription

Michael goes off the deep end and we're teased with the possibility that he shoots the computer. Is Michael talking to Walt on the computer? Four possibilities:
  1. Yes, but least likely
  2. Yes, but Walt is controlled by The Others
  3. No, it's The Others pretending to be Walt
  4. No, Michael is insane and no one is on the computer

I was leaning towards #4, but think we'll find #2 or #3 to be the correct answer. Whatever the answer, Michael goes loco and the previews tease interaction with another group of island people.

Huh? Talking of last week's episode:
One of the things we wanted to do on that episode was answer the question about the plane.

No you didn't. You explained why the heroin was on the plane, why the passengers were wearing priest garments, but in no way did you explain how the plane got from Nigeria to an island in the South Pacific. Moving on...

About the monster and the flashes:
The thing that all the flashes had in common was they seemed to be moments from Mr. Eko's life. Some of which we might not have even seen yet. So I don't know what I would intuit by the way the monster was sort of the ethernet connection to his emotions. Was in some way downloading his fears and anxieties. And analyzing them. And then somehow able not to attack him based on the fact that Eko didn't seem particularly afraid of it. Which might explain why Locke was not savaged by the monster.

I would put a lot of credence to that speculation. The monster might be reacting to certain aspects of the character it's facing.

Tonight will explain why Jack is no longer married to Sara and what happened. We'll get some of it, not all.

More from the Q&A.
  • The Dharma iniative logo is on the shark
  • Dharma is an anacronym, not an anagram
  • will we learn more about survivors we haven't met?Maybe, to paraphrase their answer

Previously, in the Friends post, Pooh asked me to reveal how Lost would end. After tonight's episode I'll try to catalog some of the unanswered questions and try to devine a path towards the end. At the end of Season 1 I expected this season to be a leadership struggle between Jack and Locke and that hasn't happened.

I vote for #3 on the Walt/Not Walt controversy.

I must of missed the previous 4,815,162,341 mentions, because that makes no sense to me.

Sorry, Matrix reference. My way of saying that they're all dead and the show exists wholly in Haley Joel Osment's mind...
