Man, I love Sayid episodes. Why oh why doesn't this amazing character get more screentime? Or prominent role in the story? Why do the people on the beach listen to the jackass doctor and the pretty girl and the bumbling bald guy and the scheming con man than they do to the perfectly logical former soldier?

Best episode of the season. And one odd little point: why didn't Sawyer recognize Nikki? Sure, it might've been a little in-joke about the new characters, but if Nikki/Paolo are supposed to have been there all along, there is no possible way hound dog Sawyer didn't notice the hot woman in the jean shorts for two months.



I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.

Umm...Sawyer's eyes went bad?

It seems that in any given episodes, one character's antics will frustrate you. Whether it's by not sharing information or just doing something stupid. This episode, it was Locke and his obsession with the computer chess game. I could understand why he was into it at the end-- to "unlock" the special video package. But earlier, you're supposed to watch over a violent prisoner.... instead you get up and decide to play a frickin' computer game! Arrrrghhh! Locke definitely lost some Cool Points with that.

I think that Sawyer's line was just meant to emphasize that Nikki and Paolo are making themselves known to the main 'clique'. (I actually had someone react the same way to me recently in a slightly similar situation.)

I'm still confused about whether or not Sayid tortured the woman. I don't expect to ever receive clarification on the point. I'm not sure whether I'd rather think Sayid didn't want to admit at first that he did torture her, or that Sayid would admit to things he did not do under duress.

The cat was awesome.

I should learn to stop watching the promos. Last week's promo showed the house exploding, so the C-4 wasn't terribly surprising, nor was Locke pressing 77. The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is that if the hostiles are in the process of taking over the station, you have to win a game of chess before being able to activate the self-destruct mechanism.

So no Sawyer nicknames for what, about 7 episodes or so?

I like that Sayid got the map. I like that they wrapped up Miss Klugh's appearances. (Allegedly, she was supposed to die as Pickett's wife, but they couldn't get the actress for those episodes. I guess it was easier to write her out when they had a chance than leave us wondering what happened to her.) I'm not sure how I feel about Locke... on the one hand, he's such a moron because he couldn't ignore the chess game to instead watch the prisoner. But then again, I know the feeling when you just HAVE to play the game and solve the puzzle or whatnot, so I can't blame him too much.

Rousseau's "I've survived this long by avoiding these situations" was both amusing and a good way to establish why she knows so little of parts of the island.

In the second season, Sawyer and Charlie worked out a plot to pretend to Kidnap Sun in order to get all the guns. Sawyer did this because his "stash" was taken while he was at see and on the other side of the island, where the tail section landed. It portrayed him as a very dark, scheming character.

Last night he was trying to win a game of table tennis in order to get his stuff back and didn't even succeed. If you want to talk about a character losing cool points, that could be it.

Locke has never been extremely bright when it comes to making big decisions anyways. He kind of just randomly does what the island tells him to do, but in this case he was probably just trying to prolong his stay on the island. Also wasn't he playing a lot of chess when the show first started?

The show could really use more Sayid. The way he and the Russian played each other at the begining was just classic.

Sayid based episodes & flashbacks are always great. His chracter is so much more than they have allowed it to be. You could easily spin a show off on him.

No real surprise that it was Miss Klugh in the basment - why else would she have been in the "previously on LOST" segment at the start of the show. My Russian is rusty so I have no idea what she and one eye patch guy were babbling about (alright, I really only know a couple of russian swear words but I didn''t hear any of them) - may need to do some searching to see what I can find on it.

Great tension between One Eye Patch Guy & Sayid - not quite sure why Sayid didn't just kill him after getting the map - it looks from the previews like we don't need to worry too much longer about that anyway.

2 episodes - No Jack - thank you

Perhaps Sawyer was speaking for all of us when he asked Nikki who the hell she was. It kills me to know that we are going to be subjected to a Nikki & Paulo Backstory episode in thenext few weeks

Locke just can't leave well enough alone - it was obvious (to him) that the island was "speaking" to him through the computer - I am just surprised that the numbers that needed to be pushed were not the same #'s that have pervaded the series from the beginning.

No nicknames is going to suck.....

I think Claire gets some airtime next week so that should bring Desmond back into the storyline - those 2 with Charlie made next week's TV Guide cover.

Is it next wednesday yet ?

Here is a site (lost.cubit.net) that has some comments translating some of the text that Mikhail was reading/writing, and the conversation between he and Klugh.

I like Sayid, but it just seemed like the backstory was trying to show us what a good guy he is, and how much regret he has for his role with the Republican Guard. We know these things, so I just don't feel it added anything.

If anyone's interested in a spoiler about something that has been speculated and expected (in these threads), click here (eonline.com) (down there somewhere).

Are Michael and Walt off the show now? They left on "Day 67" (according to various timelines), and I believe last night's episode was Day 74 or 75. Maybe they are holed up with Rose and Bernard.

...and I was just thinking - will Mikhail be branded now, as Libby was, because he shot Miss Klugh? Maybe Sayid, Kate, and Locke will say that he shot her in cold blood...

It was Juliet who was branded for shooting an other. They were going to execute her per their own rule but Jack negotiated to keep her alive. Thus, she got the brand.

I think that Locke was operating under the belief that by triggering the self-destruct mechanism of the communications hub, somehow a signal would be sent to the outside world, despite the Sonar and Satellite arrays being inoperable, bringing "help" in whatever form that may be.

I just don't think that Locke wants help.

I really hope ABC didn't give away Mikhail's fate like that in a preview.

I think you're right - for a couple reasons - he thinks he may lose his legs again and also, he wants to discover the mystery of the islanad in general - he doesn't want to be rescued and should it occur, he won't be going

I watched the show. I just didn't have much to say. I thought the episode was just good (as opposed to AWESOMELY GREAT like we've been getting), although I did enjoy Dwight's interaction with the bobblehead and the Jim's vacation sub-plot.
