Lost in Thought

Time travel ain't easy

I just watched the first 2 episodes of LOST season 5, and here are my initial thoughts:

I really want to believe that Ben has good intentions, no matter how much of a bastard he can be. I am not so sure that this is the case after tonight. After manipulating Sayid into being his personal assassin, he probably didn’t expect him to go along with his new plan to go back to the island. That’s why I think that those were his men in the safe-house and they were supposed to be drugged and transported back silently.  He really seems to have alterior motives behind going back. He is clearly hiding something from them, as could be seen when he pulled out a package from the heating vent while Jack was in the bathroom. Also, what is with the butcher shop now? How many people does he have off the island?

Speaking of Ben’s friends, the lady from Desmond’s strange journeys through time is back and is almost certainly Daniel’s mom. He tells Desmond back at the past hatch to find his mother and explain everything to her. I had always assumed that she was with the Others, but that may not have always been the case. If it were, why didn’t she know that her son had teamed up with Whidmore in trying to take control of the island? Granted, he wasn’t quite sure of what he was getting into. Or was he? Time travel hurts my head.

Is Sun now the enemy as well? She makes pals with Whidmore, and the next thing you know Kate’s maternity rights are being questioned and Sun just happens to be in town at the same time. She tells Kate that she doesn’t blame her for Jin’s “death” (I am not convinced), but the tone of her voice is cold, cold , cold. Her comment abut Aaron and her child playing together was also a little suspicious.

I am so happy that they killed Neil off quickly. I hate it when an extra becomes a main character. They are always whiny and annoying. K-Fed and his blond girlfriend were the worst, their ghastly deaths were not even enough to have made their existence worthwhile.

Hurley is either a genious or a complete and utter failure after turning himself in. Can Ben’s power really extend far enough to get him out of prison? Then again, after watching Prison Break, that doesn’t seem like such a difficult task anymore. Also, I hope that is the last time we see Anna Lucia. I want to eat a Hot Pocket now.

I read that the writers gave away some spoilers at the San Diego comic con, and the one the interested me the most was that Richard was going to be seen barefoot with only 4 toes. This sheds some light on the statue from a few seasons ago, but raises a lot of new questions too. Are the original Others some sort of race that existed before man? The wheel had been around for ages, and they are all immortal. This might be totally off base, but I really hope that this isn’t going to take some sort of religious spin.

Locke/Bentham is totally alive, isn’t he?

What do you suckers think?! I would love to keep a weekly discussion going in my comments with you guys.

PS: What a lame post headline, pun definitely intended dude! bwahahahahahahaha!

    Woops. Haven’t seen those yet. Fuck. Hah. I got like a paragraph into it before realizing I was reading things I haven’t seen yet. Damn.

    Oh. Here’s a link to real life Cthulhu http://www.pinktentacle.com/tag/jellyfish Haha.

    Damn, you remember small details from past episodes! I think Season 5 started off really good so far. You’re right about Hugo. After watching Fringe, he could easily break out from a prison, haha. I have to watch the new episode of Fringe too!

    So, even with the whole time travel thing, there is no chance for Charlie to come back!?!?

    I want to eat a hot pocket too.

    Good analysis. It hadn’t occurred to me that the safehouse was a set-up. Now that you mention it, if they were Whitmore’s men they would have had real guns.

    Also, I’m sure that Locke is dead but will be resurrected somehow when they haul his corpse back to the island.

    I want to know how everyone has managed to survive on the island for the past three years with all the timeshifting. Seems like every time they leap someone ends up getting shot or maimed.

    Ben is only interested in what’s good for Ben. I think Hurley screwed up by getting arrested; everyone needs to get back to the island regardless of if they do it Ben’s way or not. Plus he was warned to stay away from the Police.

    Sun could be trying to use Kate to bait Ben out into the open. Glenn pointed out to me that Sun is a chronic lier, so anything she says can’t be taken at face value. I mean, it was Whitmore’s men that really killed Jin. She could also be trying to use Whitemore to kill Ben before she backstabs him, making this a true Korean revenge drama.

    I’m more interested in what Daniel was doing in the caves back in the 70’s. Was he planning on blowing up the energy source with that gas canister?
