Some thoughts on the season 6 premiere of LOST:

Man, what a great two hours. I was smiling ear to ear the whole time. Now, for thoughts and comments.

It tore me up to see Juliet die again and again – with Sawyer there. I like where those two wound up. However, just before she died, it seemed Juliet was slipping into the alternate reality where the flight landed. She told Sawyer, “perhaps we can get a cup of coffee” and “we’ll go dutch.” He thought she was delusional, but was she glimpsing the other reality. Her after death message of “it worked” sure makes it seem like it.

Just like the flash forwards, I think this alternate reality where 815 landed is more than a glimpse. What purpose it serves, I don’t know.

Hurley was awesome this episode. I like seeing him being sure of himself.

I was conflicted with Sayid’s death. I was shocked that he died, but wasn’t sure that he was dead. We’ve been told that the island can’t resurrect someone, but I wanted Sayid to come back – not content with following him in the alternate reality. The scene where Jack gives Sayid CPR reminded me of the scene with Kate and Jack trying to revive Charlie after Ethan hung him.

Anyway, when Sayid sits up, I was as surprised as Hurley. So, can the temple waters resurrect someone and Richard Alpert isn’t aware of that fact. I’d say no. I’m guessing the group at the temple is the group of others/hostiles/natives that Richard has always been a part of. So…what happened to Sayid. Is Sayid now Jacob – much the same way the Man in Black (MIB) is now Locke?

A few questions were answered – smoke monster and what happened with stewardess Cindy – but as any good episode of LOST – more questions were asked. It’s amazing how after 5 seasons, this show can still be show creative and entertaining. Can’t wait to see the rest and I’ll be sad to see it go.


On a trip through Knoxville this weekend, Jill and I spotted the above billboard, but couldn’t make out the spray painted message as we went by. Of course, a quick Google returns many results and they are quite interesting.

There’s a whole viral site located at and if you don’t have time to decipher the entire game/site, then read Oceanic Conspiracies for a breakdown of the happenings on the site.

Oceanic Conspiracies lists all of the “in game” websites and has summaries of all the videos, voicemail  and other content on the site.

According to an article in an Omaha newspaper, the billboards appear in cities that LOST fans think are connected to key characters on the show…

Fans of the show believe the billboards have been placed in the area where certain “Lost” characters are from. Kate Austen, who fled to Australia after killing her mom’s lover is played by Evangeline Lilly and in the show is said to be from Iowa. An American marshal captured Austen in Australia and was transporting her back to American before the plane crashed.

The site’s game is set to end on Jan. 31 when the first episode of Season 4 premieres. Here’s hoping that the viral content leads right into the premiere rather than falling flat like the viral game featuring “Rachel” did a few summers ago.

From Entertainment Weekly’s web-site

The new season of Lost begins Monday! Kinda. ABC has (quietly) announced that it will begin posting its Lost “mobisodes” (originally intended to debut with Verizon Wireless customers) on Monday, Nov. 12, at The series of two- to three-minute vignettes — collectively known as “Missing Pieces” — kicks off with “The Watch,” focusing on Matthew Fox’s character. The micro-stories aren’t deleted scenes — they’re newly-shot material that fits into the larger Lost saga; it’s up to the fans to figure out where they belong. A new Webisode will post each Monday.

That’s awesome news. With the WGA strike in effect, most shows have uncertain futures past December. Heroes is planning for a possible season (Volume II) finale on December 3 and LOST may not make it on the air in February as planned. With a shortened season of 16 episodes, producers Damon Lindelof and Carton Cuse want all 16 episodes to air together as planned, but have stated that it is ultimately ABC’s decision when and where LOST will air.
