Default "Lost" - Season 5: Episode & Storyline Discussion

This thread is being started to discuss "Lost Season 5".

The series returns to ABC TV on Wednesday, January 21, 2009.

Use this thread to discuss storylines and possible speculation for the upcoming episodes. Several promos for the new season are already rolling on ABC that may offer brief glimpses of what may be coming.

We'll let discussion of the episodes take place shortly after they air. "Lost" fans have several opportunities to catch the show if they did not watch it at air time. Among the options:

* Record to Your VCR
* Record to your Tivo or other DVR device
* Watch program stream on ABC.com website*
* Purchase episode from iTunes store

* assuming ABC continues flash based streaming.

As for episode spoilers, use the spoiler tag if you are posting the same day or before an episode airs in Hawaii.

I wonder who are the guys who were attacking James and Juliet at the end of the 2nd hour? They seemed more meaner than The Others.

It was kind of ironic about the character Neil who complains about no one can start a fire and then he gets nailed by a flaming arrow.

The island's time/space shifting apparently is having repercussions elsewhere in the world as well. I noticed that "Windward Auto Spa" was transplanted to Los Angeles!

The show used to go to great lengths to edit/camouflage things like that out of the background. Are they losing their touch?

This season looks like it'll be very interesting.

Default Re: "Lost" - Season 5: Episode & Storyline Discussion

I got into wondering about the following things:
  1. It seems that some form of time travel (or time shifting) might be the theme for the 5th season, Desmond experienced some sort of time travel since the 3rd season
  2. Under certain conditions this form of time travel can be fatal
  3. The disease that Danielle Rousseau claims that infected her team could be the fatal side effect of time traveling (FSETT)
  4. The injection that Desmond was giving himself during his intro in the second season could have been a temporary stop gap measure (or a non-workable solution) to combat the effects of the FSETT
  5. Was kind of interesting that when the time shifting occurred Locke got seperated from The Others but in the case of the Oceanic 815 and the freighter group, Juliet shifted with them too (as opposed to being left behind like The Others
  6. The group of guys that captured James and Juliet seemed to have a thing of cutting of hands. I wonder if this is the same group of people that chopped off Mavin Candle's hand.
  7. It used to be that previously dead characters could come back via flashbacks or as visions while under the influence of something but now they can come back during time shifts on the island or as visions to Hurley in the outside world.

My vote is Rousseau's crew, crazed with anger after the kidnaping of young Alex.

The actor that played Neil was in my college dorm! It's been fun spotting him in bit parts over the years. He's best known as the guy in the Aaron Burr "Got Milk?" commercial. He's gotten regular work playing a string of kinda goofy guys.

We noticed that Hurley was parked there too, but wasn't he also driving town-bound on Waialae when Ana-Lucia's cop car lit him up? Talk about time/space shifting!

I can't believe it's been two days since the season premiere and there's only been six posts! Are we losing fans, or just waiting for Ryan's recap?

Doh! According to Caryn Kunz' Lost blog, that was actually Kahuhipa Street in Kaneohe.

Well, not exactly...The driving scene was on Waialae Ave...I know all the landmarks that was being shown, but they then shot the scene on Kahuhipa St. where Anna Lucia goes up to Hurley .

Saw the bit where they went into the butcher shop...that was Aala Meat Market on Waiakamilo Rd between Meg's Drive-Inn and that 24/7 store that handles safety equipment...

Aha - I was right! Not bad for a mainland guy! (OK, with a little help from my wife But I was the one that froze the screen and spotted the H-1 sign in the background!) That was just down the street from Kim Chee II and Big City Diner, right?

I think this was the Mother of all Lost episodes. So many revelations and mysteries and romantic confessions! The introduction of 1950s H-bomb (Jughead) adds a new dimension.

Talk about being hit in the head with a frying pan for this episode (called Jughead).
  1. Penny and Desmond have a kid
  2. The island is in the South Pacific Ocean in the 1950's and was a H bomb test site in 1954 (the island could have been off the African Coast for brief period in the late 1990's or early 2000 to grab the Beachcraft while it crashed)
  3. The episode title of Jughead refers to the name of the H bomb in the epsiode that did not explode
  4. Daniel makes the suggestion of encasing the H bomb in concrete and bury the thing (I doubt it's the thing in the Swan station).
  5. No idea on the age of Richard Alpert but Juliet says he is very old.
  6. The guy from last week's episode who demands who Juliet and James are and orders Juliet's hand to be cut off before being stop, that was a young Charles Widmore.

On one hand I am kind of glad that Jin survived the freighter's bomb blast from last season and having him encounter Daneille's group when they first arrived on the island 16 years before the crash of Oceanic 815. On the other hand a couple of possible plot holes get generated from this, one is how come Daneille don't remember Jin 16 years later (unless this encounter in the past is really short) and secondly if Jin (and perhaps others from the freighter) is effected by the island's time warp thing how come the Oceanic 6 on the helicopter is not time traveling since they were between the freighter and the island when the islands started to move in time?

On one hand the reunion of Jin and James seem predictable in tonight's episode but it was nice.

I didn't think they spent enough time on the shipwrecked French crew, hopefully they might do more in future episodes. The new thing that got covered is that the smoke monster guards the temple. Is this temple different from the temple that Others went to at the end of season 3?

Seems likely that the four-toed foot ties in with the temple?

I wonder if Richard Alpert or Charles Widmore have a 4 toed foot (while the other foot has 6 toes)?

I am kind of wondering why does the smoke monster kill people who are away from the temple (Nadine from last night and the pilot from the 1st episode, as well as Eko) but yet didn't hurt the French team when they went down to get Montand or Montand for that matter after it got him down in the hole.

Also everytime there is a time shift there is the noise and light that comes that we the audience and the survivors see, but I am kind of wondering what the other people who are not moving thru time, what do they see when a time shift occurs?

Default Re: "Lost" - Season 5: Episode & Storyline Discussion

Interesting plot twist at the end of the episode where Jack, Kate and Hurley end up in a lagoon and someone in a Dharma van pulls up to them and it turns out that driver of that van is Jin.

I guess this means that everyone is somewhere in the past.

So the following questions that get generated in this epsiode are:
  1. So what happen to Sun, Sayid, Ben and Frank?
  2. The guy in the line behind Jack at the ticket counter, he looks familar as far as he has been on Lost before?
  3. What happen to Aaron?
  4. I take it the other passengers and the plane made it to where they supposed to go?
  5. Ben being hurt no doubt means that either Penny or Desmond didn't go down without a fight. So did any of the them survive the encounter with Ben?
  6. So how come Sayid was in handcuffs and why was he been taking to Guam of all places?
  7. What's with Hurley and the guitar case?

Helen - thanks for asking those questions! I too was wondering about Aaron - doesn't he need to go back to the island too? and who was he left with when both Sun and Kate go back? and what was the point of the muslim looking guy being in the 1st class section? is he there somewhere too? Sorry for calling him the "muslim guy" but i just saw him in a movie called "Traitor" where he played an al-queda like terrorist. and also, what happened to the person Sayeed was handcuffed to?

My, my - I do love this show!

This episode was really good. Not "best ever" like The Constant, but that's hard to top. It's like the round where the fighter is landing jab after jab, setting up some awesome uppercuts and vicious right hooks in later rounds.

And the writers paid homage to this beatdown by naming the episode "316." As in, "Austin 3:16 says I just whooped your ass."

If you had to diagram the chronology of Lost you'd likely end up with something that looked like Charlie Brown's attempts to use a fountain pen. Present characters' actions in the past affect events in the future, which is now the present. Confusing, yes. But, oh, so delicious.

So let's try to answer some of the questions that this ep raised.

  6. So how come Sayid was in handcuffs and why was he been taking to Guam of all places?
  7. What's with Hurley and the guitar case?
1. We have to assume that, much like the crash of 815, survivors are strewn over large distances.

2. That guy must be the Sayid proxy. Do we assume he was also an Iraqi soldier? (He certainly played one in "Three Kings." He was the guy who kept asking Mark Wahlberg "What's the deal with Michael Jackson, bro?") So either he's there through Ben's manipulations, or through the machinations of fate.

3. Ghost Claire did show up in L.A. and warn Kate to never bring Aaron back to the island. So you hope that Kate left Aaron with someone and didn't drown him in a tub. But then why the whole "don't ever ask me about Aaron" deal? Kate doesn't need to bring him back, since he wasn't one of the original seat holders. But as she might be the Claire proxy on the plane, she needed to be pregnant. Which is why she got all brown-chicken-brown-cow with Jack right before the flight.

4. If the other passengers were supposed to go to the island, then yes, they got where they were going to go. You have to believe that Lapidus was going back to the island too, which means eeeeeeverybody on that plane went along too. Man, that guy pulls off more miracle crash landings than Sully. Plus, remember that Sawyer & Co. found wreckage from an Ajira flight?

5. As the island isn't done with Desmond yet, according to Hawking, he's probably still alive. Penny? Her death would certainly draw Desmond back to the island to seek revenge against Ben.

6. Sayid=Kate proxy. But how? Why? Back to number 2.

7. Hurley=Charlie proxy.


We already know that we're getting the Locke episode next week. And I bet that we see Locke come back to life. Come on, Ben's van was "Canton-Rainier", which is an obvious anagram for "Bobby Ewing". And that island loves it some Locke, giving him a seemingly endless stream of hearts that help refill his Super Mario health meter. Apparently, next week, a bouncy star falls onto Locke's casket.

When this episode aired again last night I noticed that in the time jump where Danielle is killing off her team, Jin did not encounter any dead body with a missing arm. So another question gets generated is what happen to Montand?

Watching the 1st season finale episode playing on KGMB, the one where some of the 815 people encountering the ship Black Rock. I am kind of wondering if they would ever show how the ship managed to ended up so far inland?

Don't we see her talking to someone in the preview for the next episode?

Regarding proxy does there have to be a proxy for everyone on the original Oceanic plane? I mean is Sayid is there so does he need a proxy for himself. Clearly handcuffed Sayid is supposed to mirror Kate and the marshall. So is there a Hurley proxy and another Doctor that's a Jack proxy? Plus with Hurley's 75 empty seats there will be a lot less people on board.

Very interesting theory on Kate, it would be great to see how that plays out if true.

There wasn't any wreckage. Sawyer's group found a canoe with Ajira water bottles in them and it's the one that aired on February 4th.
