The Variable

Another good episode (even if it was chock full of more annoying children). Faraday's relation to Eloise and Widmore are confirmed (making him Penny's half brother, at least). Jack and Sawyer are back to there feudin', though Sawyer isn't quite as big of a dick about it any more. I kind of miss that. It seemd they're building up to "the accident", where Chang will lose his arm and probably lead to some Dharma folks leaving the Island (including, as Biz said, lil' Miles). It's getting tougher and tougher to figure out who's "good" and "bad", Eloise Hawking sent her son back to the Island, knowing she would kill him. The question of whether or not you can change the past to affect the future is still a bit up in the air. At this point, I'm leaning towards no, though I've read some good arguments otherwise. What do you all think? And of course, we lost our dear Faraday. Will it be for good? I think so. I'm not saying we won't see more of him...but I think he did indeed die as a result of getting shot. Any thoughts on that?

More Press: Evangeline Lilly & Matthew Fox

Not nearly as exciting as the previous clips, but there's more LOST stars on late-night tv. Looks like we're gearing up for a season finale....

Here you can watch Matthew Fox on Letterman last night. He says (prepare yourself) the finale will have a big cliffhanger. What a shocker.

And in a total snooze fest, Evangline Lilly compares working with Matthew Fox and Josh Holloway here. Jack-Kate-Sawyer-Yawn.

Jorge Garcia Is Awesome.

OMG, I was just telling a certain crumb of a friend that if I could meet any two actors from LOST it would be Michael Emerson (Ben) and Jorge Garcia (Hurley). We already saw Michael Emerson on Jimmy Fallon and today Jorge Garcia was on the Bonnie Hunt show! Who knew Bonnie Hunt had a talk show. Anyway, his interview is awesome. He says that since they don't film in LA, LOST has just become a "show that just me and my friends do out in the jungle".

You can watch the full clip here.

Ben's Your Parent of Choice

As much as Cody hates to admit it, Ben is a better parent then Kate. Well, at least that's what the readers of OPM have said. 55% (22) think Ben is a better parent. 45% (18) would rather have Kate lose you in a grocery store.

Thanks for voting!

Questions & Answers: Some Like It Hoth

I enjoyed this episode, but I'm a big fan of Miles. It was pretty much an Information episode, but I always like it when you get to see more of Dharma and the inner-workings.
I'm gonna guess that Dr. Chang made his wife and son leave the Island because he had gotten wind of the purge and wanted to save them. I'm assuming he didn't mention this to his wife, however.
Faraday is back! Who didn't love seeing his head pop out of that submarine? So, okay, Faraday has been in Ann Arbor... which means when he "took off" it was to go be a scientist. He's not with the Others, he didn't kill himself, etc etc.
So, Miles got a counter-offer to not go work for Widmore. And yeah, that guy in the van - Bram - was on flight 316 and is now holding a gun to Lapidus' head. He's the one who knows to ask "What lies in the shadow of the statue?". So, what do you think is in the shadow of the statue?
Also, anyone who doesn't like Hurley is a crumb.
Lastly, we now know that it's possible for you to exist twice in the same time. Miles and Baby Miles are both on the Island in 1977. "Maybe he'll let you hold baby you" was the best.
Important LOST news: there's no episode next week (it's a recap show, I guess) and then there's only FOUR episodes left. That's all we get.

Who would you want to call Mom or Dad?

The last two episodes have featured the parental stylings of both Ben and Kate. Ben and Kate have something in common: they like to steal other people's babies and raise them as their own. Amusing now, isn't it, that Ben harassed Kate with his "but he isn't your son" comment? So, who is the better "parent"?
Let's review some of the facts:
-Ben STEALS Alex, but saves her life by not killing her as Charles wanted
-Ben is a controlling father, wanting only the best for his child
-Ben let's Alex die, though he does seem to be remorseful and wants to seek revenge for her life (a true sign of fatherly love)
-Kate takes Aaron as her own only after Claire disappears
-Kate prefers to lie to everyone about being his mother, rather then find his true family
-Kate admits that she was pretty much using Aaron's love to deal with Sawyer leaving her
-Kate gives Aaron to his grandmother to go back to the Island (supposedly to find Claire)
So, who do you think is better at parenting? Let us know. You have a week!

Dead Is Dead.

Ugh. Comment. As of now, I'm not a fan of Dead is Dead.

Okay, now that I've had some time to think about it, I'm ready to take a sturdier stand on the epsode. Note the "as of now" in the original post...I know I'm easily swayed. Reading what you have to say in the comments certainly helps get my thoughts in order. DB eloquently said pretty much exactly what I was thinking. The concepts in last night's episode (and much of this season) are great. I'll agree with The Armeniac - seeing inside the temple, with all the glyphs and everything, was totally awesome. But the smoke monster playing back all of Ben's bad deeds (in full color, no less?) That part felt more like a Chick tract than LOST. Alex telling him he has to follow Locke now? I feel like that was too convenient. There goes that interesting dynamic of two men both trying to take the lead. That whole scene was so campy and melodramatic. However, I'll also agree with Meg, that the writers may in fact no what they're doing, and Dead is Dead might end up being less lame in hindsight, once we have a bigger picture. I can also see looking back, when all is said and done, and feeling like this episode is the one that jumped the shark.

LOST in Headlines

Questions & Answers: Whatever Happened, Happened

Okay, let's talk. The episode was ok. My main issue with it was that it was Kate-centric and man, do I hate Kate. You know what I also hate? Kate and Aaron. Blech. Who cares. There are so many other things I'd rather know then what happened to Aaron. Like where's Bernard and Rose? How will Walt fit in? What's Desmond doing? How is Sun gonna get to '77? What's Locke going to do? But noooooo. Kate and Aaron. And Kate, every mother loses a kid in a store. Once we lost Matthew at the Yuba-Sutter fair when he was 3. Turns out he was riding the carousel the whole time.

Anyway, Ben's not dead and if you're living in the past, you can't change the future. Also, Richard Alpert knew who Ben was already.

I thought the most interesting thing occurred when the rando Other said "Charles and Ellie might not be happy about this". In my house this led to a big discussion about how old Penny would be at that time. Was Penny born on the Island? Is Daniel Charles Widmore's son? Does that mean that Penny and Daniel are related? How does Ben get Charles off the island? Does Richard make Ben immortal? Is this why Ben and Charles can't kill each other? Because neither one can die?

And finally! Someone talks about time travel.

Thanks to Cody, for posting the placeholder.
