Looks like SciFi is running Lost reruns in a 4 hour block on Monday nights. What's unusual is that they seem to be grouping them on a per character basis. Last week, I only came in partway through, but all 4 eps were Locke-centric. This coming Monday looks Jack-centric, & the following is Sun/Jin.

Among the selected episodes, they do show them chronoligically. It's an interesting way to review the backstories of the major players.

I enjoyed this although I didn't understand why they went with Further Instructions as opposed to Orientation. I think the tale of Helen is more important to Locke than time he got the commune busted. Plus, they completely skipped out on the actual hatch, going straight from "what's inside?" to "where'd it go?"

I look forward to the Claire marathon, where they have to repeat one of the episodes.

I'd almost forgotten about that commune episode. For me, there were a couple of things that jumped out:

1) How important it is to Locke to have a sense of belonging to a community. He's almost easier to think of as a loner, but this is a good reminder that that's not totally by choice. He *almost* crossed the line to protect that "family" -- & they weren't all that great as a family. That flows nicely into the lengths that he'll go now to protect "his people".

2) Locke couldn't kill the cop, nor could he kill his father. I still think there's something about the Island not wanting it's chosen one to capriciously kill innocents.

3) There's one scene where the u/c cop is asking Locke what they're planning on blowing up. They're talking about the greenhouse, & Locke points out that they have orchard duty. I had to laugh at greenhouse/orchard now that we have The Greenhouse / The Orchid. :-)

4) I still think there was more going on at the commune than just growing pot. For whatever that's worth ...

That would certainly leave out Ben and probably also Widmore.

It's funny now how long ago some of those early episodes now seem.

Interesting...what does that say about Naomi, then?

That's why I said "capriciously". Maybe the Island / Jacob didn't consider Naomi an innocent. Maybe that killing was deemed necessary for the Island's defence. And then there was that whole wierdness about Naomi being "not quite dead yet" for quite a while. That has always felt very different to me than a killing based on personal emotion (like the cop or Cooper would have been).

I'm still stuck on that point that, other than the Purge, we don't see Ben personally kill anybody. He certainly dispatches killers, & manipulates people into murder. (But there's always that intermediate level of their free will in between.)

And there's that exchange with Widmore. Widmore asks, "Did you come here to kill me?" Ben replies, "We both know I can't do that."

I certainly don't know what the rule is, but I'm just really sure there's something there.

Ben's actions led to the blowing up of the freighter and however many people that killed, be they people from the plane or people working for Widmore.

They could fill out her week with the Rose/Bernard ep and the Nikki/Paulo ep. Or, since Jack has roughly 78 episodes, they could add Claire's shows in with him during Shepherd Family Spotlight Week.



Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death!

Ben kills Keamy and I'm pretty sure he kills one of the two Bedouin when he arrives in Tunisia after turning the wheel. Although by the time those happen, it would seem Ben is out of favor with the island.

And didn't Locke also kill one of the guys with "Jones" and "Cunningham" last week, before he realized they were "his people."

Did anyone try to watch the alleged Jack marathon last night? Were they trying to pass off Star Trek as a flash forward?

That's why I said "interesting". Once I saw her with Matthew Abaddon, I deemed her up-to-something...
