Lost: The Other 48 Days (s2ep07)
Posted November 17, 2005 at 08:37:26 AM by Bean in the Lost category
Last night's Lost was like all of season one crammed into a single episode, but focussed on the survivors of the tail section of Oceanic Flight 815. We got to see the crash, the minutes immediately following, and the then bit's a pieces of the day's leading up to the point that they met Jin, Sayer, and Mike. Here's a few highlights:
Well, we now know for sure that the big black guy who called himself "Mr. Echo" WAS on the plane and not just some crazy island native or something. He was wearing normal clothes and acting like the rest of the Tailies until he ran into the "others" and ended up killing some of them in self-defense. Then he took of his shirt, grabbed a big stick, and put on war paint. Now, he's a bad-ass jungle guide.
Goodwin and the Others
Just like the original Losties with Ethan Rom, the Tailies had a mole. Goodwin (they guy we see with a stake through his torso in previous ep's) is one of the Others. Ana takes him out, but not until the Tailies are picked off for a good 40 days or so. Before she impales him, they have a pretty interesting conversation where we hear Goodwin say that only the "good" Tailies were taken, the kids are fine, and that the others aren't "attacking" them, but making them better off. We also get a glimpse of how organized the Others are when Ana kills one of them and find him with a detailed list of all of the Tailies that were taken.
They've been airing a special lost Lost scene on GMA lately. To save you the trouble of watching it, I'll tell you what it is: A large crate washed up on the Tailies beach and they all gathered around to open it. Turns out it was a shipment of Austrailian boomerangs! Guess that's where all those hockey-stick-looking weapons came from - boomerangs tied to sticks.
We see that the Tailies use the radio they found in their hatch a few seconds every day. They were the ones talking back when Boone used the radio in the drug plane to call for help.
And finally, we find out that it was, indeed, Ana Lucia that shot Shannon. There was a lot of speculation that it may have been someone else due to the tricky camera angles from the previous episode, but the end of this one clearly shows the shooting scene is as simple as we first thought. Everyone was hearing voices, then the two groups met and Ana shot Shannon. Now Sayid is pissed (as was evident in the previews for next week).

I read a weekly collumn on tvguide.com and this week it was devoted solely to Lost. He interviewed the exec producers, and the transcript is here http://www.tvguide.com/news/askausiello/. The most interesting part was that they said we should be paying attentio to Eko's stick. Don't know what it means, but sounds interesting!

You see him carving something into the handle after the first group of tailies is taken. I'm guessing it's like a tally of how many people are gone or something like that.

Not sure about the stick, but I'll keep an eye out.
