Lost: Collision and What Kate Did (S02EP08/09)
Posted December 01, 2005 at 09:12:34 AM by Bean in the Lost category
The Shooting
2 weeks ago, we flashed back to the shooting and found out that it was, indeed, Ana Lucia that popped a cap in Shannon. In a panic, Ana tied up Sayid (who almost shot her in retaliation) and the Tailies hunkered down to figure out what to do. Sawyers condition was clearly getting worse, so Eko picked him up and carried him to the Losties camp. Eventually, everyone else went too, leaving Sayid and Ana to settle up. They confessed a few things to one another and both admitted to being "dead" inside, then Sayid was freed to go tend to Shannon's body.

We got a lot of Ana Lucia flashback in Collision. She is (or was) a cop. She was shot up real bad on a call and lost the baby she was carrying. Rather than arrest the guy who did it, she refused to press charges or ID him and took her own revenge by shooting him outside a bar. Now with Shannon's death, she's riddled with guilt because she knows she taken someone that someone else loved.

Eventually, the Tailies join the main camp and there is a reunion between Sun and Jin and also between Bernard and Rose. Sayid is devistated and falls apart at Shannon's funeral. Ana refuses to join the group for teh funeral, but she does abandon her plan to live in the jungle once she realizes that Jack is there. It's almost like a reality check for her I think, since she chatted with him pre-flight.

Eko is a great character. It's obvious (with his frequent biblical references) that he is in someway affiliated with the church. Locke shows him and Michael the Swan tape and then Eko comes forward with somehting: the missing splice. He found it hidden in a bible in the other hatch. Locke splices the tape back together, all the while talking about what kind of coincidence it is that Eko had the missing piece and everything. He was probing to see what Eko thought of it all, I think, since we know Locke is all about Fate on the island - and Eko replies that they shouldn't mistake Fate for coincidence (or somehting like that). I think these two will get along just fine.

Dr. Marvin Candle
This chump was the speaker in the tape. When they watch the tape, the missing piece says that if they fail to hit the button, or attempt to use the computer for anything else, another "incident" will happen. In the missing splice, Candle was much more stern than in the rest of it. And, in fact, there are some indications that the splice wasn't even supposed to go in that tape, or in that spot. Check out these two screen caps: original and splice. They are definately different.

Kate's Crime
Kate blew up her abusive stepdad, who it turns out, was really her dad. The guy whom she though was her dad didn't have the heart to tell her. Worst part is: her mom ratted on her. When she goes to her fake dad at the recruiters office, you can see Sayid on the TV in the background. Weird. Also, we see the marshall who ends up capturing her again. I guess he ends up chasing her for quite a while. Anyway, Kate has some crazy flashbacks when she's tending Sawyer and kinda faces her demons right as he wakes up. Then they see a big black horse in the jungle.

The Clifhanger
In the end, right after Eko and Locke watch the spliced film which tells them to not use the computer for communication no matter how tempting it is, Michael uses the computer for communication.
>: Hello?
Who is this?
>: Michael. Who is this?

And man oh man, the preview for next week was totally tits. Feel free to share any thoughts on the show. I left out a lot.

Having not seen this show, I feel confident in saying the grand finale will most likely involve them all actually being inside a giant "Cube" in which they'll have to identify prime numbers to escape from.
Bean (December 01, 2005 at 09:41:54 AM):
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: Cube was a horrible movie and Hypercube was 10x worrster.
Viviane (December 01, 2005 at 09:57:45 AM):
I thought Eko said "Don't mistake coincidence for fate" after Locke was trying to make a point of how all these events coming together has to be predestined in some way.

Anyway, I wish they would stop pushing the button. I think the whole project is all about the human psyche and how long you can get people to push a button to prevent something they don't even know.
Bean (December 01, 2005 at 10:04:56 AM):
Yeah, I may have the whole dialog between Eko and Locke backwards. At any rate, they were both "feeling eachother out" I think, and I'm looking forward to their interaction in the future.

Sorry, not sure how that repeat happened. I think my refresh button is whack.

i thought it was a pretty kugl episode. did you notice the timer was stopped after michael was dicking with it, and before he installed AIM on it?
Bean (December 01, 2005 at 11:18:40 AM):
It wasnt stopped. It was at 51 minutes... and the seconds don't start ticking until it get below 4 minutes.
Karyn (December 01, 2005 at 11:35:40 AM):
That episode was freaking jampacked. I didn't notice Sayid on the tv so thanks for that. Eko is definitely bringing the Biblical references up a notch on the show. I have a feeling that much more of this will start to be incorporated. I was yelling at Michael to stop with his IMing. I mean c' stupid could he be? There ain't no AOL access on the island. I also get the feeling Eko may not be around for long. And the whole Kate/Sawyer/Jack thing is gonna get outta control when Sawyer finds out Kate got all makey-outy with Jack in the jungle. But I'm sure Ana Lucia will be there to help Jack cope with the heart break he is doomed to face when Kate chooses Sawyer.
corbin (December 01, 2005 at 12:36:32 PM):
oh, didn't realize the seconds didn't count down.

kate needs to dyke out with AL
Stef (December 01, 2005 at 12:45:35 PM):
Cube was not horrible, but its sequel was. Oh, and yeah, all kinds of interesting things in the episode last night.
corbin (December 01, 2005 at 12:48:32 PM):
It may not have been horrible, but it was not good by any means imaginable
Finch (December 01, 2005 at 12:54:42 PM):
I can't wait until the prequel to Cube, "Square" comes out. That's gonna be one bitchin' movie.

bean, check this out, kinda funny
Bean (December 02, 2005 at 11:08:33 AM):
Libby and Ana got arrested for DD
Bean (December 02, 2005 at 11:28:36 AM):
And here's a few juicy tidbits:
Dr. Marvin Candle
If you change his last name to Khandle, his name is an anagram of Kelvin Dharma. There are a lot of name anagrams in this show, so it's not too far fetched (Ethan Rom=Other Man). Also, The doctor has a fake eye (you can see it in the video) - and there was a glass eye in the chest inside the Arrow station with the bible.

Somebody with more free time than I created a map of Lost stuff.
