LOST - Thirty Second Review - "This Place is Death"

Jackie's TV Blog, Lost

Oh, my. Lost has me suckered right in once again. Mind you, I don't have it all figured out, nor am I one of the fanatics watching the show analyzing every scene. I just don't have enough time in my life for all that! And, would it make the show more entertaining for me? I don't think so. I believe if I researched every tidbit of information out there, watching the show would become work ... not entertainment. I'm in it for the entertainment.

Here's my quick take on last night's episode:
  • Jin realizes the island is death and makes Locke promise not to bring Sun back (as she'll die). He gave Locke his wedding ring and told him to tell her he's dead.
  • The smoke monster attacked the French group, driving them wacky and/or killing them -- except for the pregnant Danielle Rousseau.
  • Jin was reunited in time and space with Sawyer, Locke, Juliet, and the newbies with them.
  • Locke was told by Jack's father (Christian) to complete the turn of the wheel Ben had started down underground -- that would fix the time warping.
  • Sayid and Kate took off and refused to go with Ben.
  • Sun, convinced by Ben (who used the wedding ring to prove Jin alive, not dead), went with Jack and Ben to a mysterious church where they met up with both Desmond and Eloise Hawking (who had wanted all six there).
  • Eloise is indeed Faraday's mother.
  • Charlotte died after making mysterious references to Faraday warning her she would back when she was a child and lived on the island.
  • Almost all of the time-traveling group have had bloody noses.
So ... Hurley, Kate, Sayid, and Aaron -- four of the six -- aren't there. I have a feeling that we'll see them join Jack and Sun soon enough. They've played up the "must be all of them" bit too much for anything else to happen. Hmmm. I still think Ben is a bad guy. I think Jack's being a dense guy. Probably the best "good guy" would be either Sayid or Hurley.

Once again, I'm including the "Lost Untangled" video here. These are hilarious!

Sorry I didn't post this yesterday. I had a brain fart & completely forgot!!!

Here's the Survivor Pool...

Bejamin "Coach" Wade - Terry in CA & Gayle

Carolina Eastwood - Laurie & Donna in AL
Debra "Debbie" Beebee - Becky & Petals

We were one short to make teams of two so I added my mom (barbwire). Since she was the first one out last time, I hope she does better this time since I put her with me. Everyone was added randomly except for Sydney (since someone mentioned she should have Sydney).

Have fun & may the best team win!

thanks for the post, Jackie. I usually don't get to watch Lost until a few days after it runs, but last night I saw it as it played instead of on tape.

I like the time travel because it is explaining storylines a little. Like with the French team. Although, Jin saved Danielle did she ever see Jin after the plane crash? Wouldn't she remember him?
and we saw the black monster was there to protect the 'temple'.

Ben wasn't supposed to turn the wheel, John was and that is the root cause of time warping? Maybe?

Much more gore this episode. I am enjoying the little pieces of info they give out and content to be told what it all means. Maybe I am just a lazy viewer. lol

Thanks Jackie.

Thanks for doing this Orkmommy. I hope Jerry makes it farther than Ace did last season, LOL. Nice being partnered with you Karen.

I'm a lazy viewer! I just don't think a lot about it after it goes off. I can't and read everything on the computer that I read!!

Jackie, when I saw that Lost Untangled come on last night I almost jumped online to send you an email or comment. They are hilarious!!

meb said... your angel, but how could you do that to cupid. LOL

Haven't watched Lost yet.. I had to resolve a conflict for taping the show and didn't notice it, so it didn't record. Gotta wait... I think it repeats next week.

Thanks for the post orkmommy.
