Lost: Every Man For Himself (S03EP04)
Posted October 26, 2006 at 08:54:21 AM by Bean in the Lost category
A quick summary. Please comment with your thoughts.
First of all, I'm pissed off that they are now showing that Desmond has the ability to see the future. This just may be the shark jump that I knew was inevitable. Up to this point, there were alway possible pseudo-scientific explinations for the things on the show. But now, well, nothign is off limits. Perhaps aliens and/or God will land on the island next and really mix things up!
After conning Sawyer to proove a point (I think), Ben shows him that they are actually on another, smaller island that is a few miles off shore from the main island. This is to keep him from trying to escape, I assume.
Coleen was shot by Sun a few eps back. In this show, she is rushed back to the Others Island (on a submarine, no less) for treatment. Juliet convinces Jack to help, but they are unable to save her. In passing, Jack sees some x-rays that turn out to be of Ben. He has a giant tumor on his spine and will die if he doesnt get it operated on. And it just so happens that Jack is a spinal surgeon.
Lost of other stuff happened, but I just dont have the time to post it all. Check out lost.cubit.net for some interesting discussion and some screen-cap invcestigations.

Here is a thought on Desmond. Time might be slowed down on the island. For whatever reason the button was pushed. Whatever happened to Desmond, he came out of the hatch and lived a week on the island but then it was all reset. So he already knows what happens because he has seen it. This theory is making less and less sense with every word I type.
At any rate. I think Time not being what it appears to be is the explanation. Not Desmond simply predicting the future.

I agree. I'm guessing that at some point Desmond will end up naked inside a time machine.

Also, did anyone else find the idea of the pacemaker causing Sawyer's heart to explode to be completely ridiculous? If pacemakers were so dangerous, why would anyone ever use one?
foo (October 26, 2006 at 03:48:11 PM):
ummm... I found that idea ridiculous. i thought if they artificially paced his heart too fast the way he would die would be from ventricular fibrillation. aka a heart attack. i confirmed this with the closest med student in the room. I guess ben said that for effect. it worked, i guess. I can't think of anything that would make a heart "explode"...
as for what Bean said about pseudo-scientific explanations, i have to agree that it is kinda weak that they are making him magical. although didn't we see something similar to this when john would talk to the island and such? isn't the "unexplained" stuff kinda make it cool?
interesting topics bean.
btw, i find sawure to be an a-hole. he is one of my least favorite characters. his hair also makes me mad. what a queer.
foo (October 26, 2006 at 03:49:01 PM):
sawyer, i meant. i also meant to spell any and all typos correctly.
Brad (October 26, 2006 at 04:44:18 PM):
You would like Sawyer if you had seen all the episodes and whatnot.
What Ben meant is that up until now anything that appeared supernatural could possibly have an explanation. It is hard to explain predicting the future.
bean (October 26, 2006 at 05:26:29 PM):
Right - for instance: Locke's "vision" of the polar bear and saving eko and all that crap could have been washed into his brainhole when he was out, after the hatch detonation.

Lost is trach!

I'm starting to wonder if the others and Benry aren't themselves part of some kind of psychological experiment in which someone else told/tells them what to do and how to react to certain situations...
