Your spoilers:

Spoiler:

Episode 4.03: The Economist (Sayid-centric)
Airdate: February 14, 2008

* new 02/12 - A secret room that may reveal a thing or two about Ben Linus. An understated piece of jewelry that is bound to reappear. An off island alliance that is going to stun and shock you. Source: DocArzt's Lost Blog
* new 02/12 - The previews promised another Oceanic Six reveal next week, but we will also learn about another major main character who's out in the world in the future, who doesn't fall under that banner. Source: Kristin on E!Online
* 02/06 - In the Island's big game of capture the flag, Kate gets tagged out by the other team and sent to "jail." Lucky for her, she's in good with the jailer... Source: Kristin on E!Online
* 02/03 - Naveen Andrews reveals: By the time you get to Episode 3, the [group's] split is kind of clearly defined. Source: TV Guide Online
* 01/28 - Locke's hostage may be the key to getting off the island, so Sayid and Kate go in search of their fellow castaway in an attempt to negotiate a peaceful deal. Guest starring are Ken Leung as Miles, Jeremy Davies as Daniel Faraday, Rebecca Mader as Charlotte, Jeff Fahey as Frank Lapidus, Mira Furlan as Danielle Rousseau, Marsha Thomason as Naomi, Armando Pucci as Italian man and Thekla Reuten as Elsa. Source: ABC
* 01/02 - [Episode 3] features a great ending and shooting and episode. Source: Lost Spoilers
* 10/29 - Carlos, a journalist, reveals: The 1st page of what I read was the production sheet, call sheet or something named like that - I can't remember precisely the right term. In this page, you can find the episode's number and name - in this case, #403 - The Economist, but of course it can be a provisory title. [...] That's where I also got Ken Leugn's character name (Miles) and the information confirming that Jeremy Davies will play Faraday, and Rebecca Mader, Charlotte. That's where I also got the name Elsa, Sayid's girlfriend in his flashforward... The next pages were scripts for episode's scenes. And that's the most important information I could find there: "The Economist" will have Sayid as a main character, and will show his after-island life. We'll be in Germany, and his girlfriend is called Elsa. [...] She seemed very intrigued about Sayid's kinda secret job. He refuses to talk about it, even to her... On the island, there will be a scene in which some losties will go to "Othersville" and will notice some noises. Kate (not Juliet!) will realize that the noise is coming from a house - pointed in the script as Juliet's house, and she'll go and check it. Then, she notices that the sound is coming from the closet; and finally finds Hurley stuck inside. Locke and Sayid are disagreeing about the best way to discover more about the "new visitors": while Sayid wants to go to the ship with Charlotte and appears that she'll get a boat to get back to their HQ, Locke prefers to trust in Ben, who said that he's got a spy on the boat. [...] Freckles will want to go to somewhere - not mentioned on the excerpt I read - but Sawyer, even not wanting her to go, won't stop her; but will also show her his disappointment... Source: Lost Spoilers
* 09/26 - It appears that episode 2 or 3 is going to be Sayid centric: I was in downtown Honolulu today (Saturday 9/22) and they were filming Lost. It was suppose to be in Germany. They had snow (shaved ice) all over the road. Some of the security said it was a Jack scene. It was not, it was Sayid. There was no dialog I could hear, just Naveen crossing the street several times. Source: Hawaii Lost Yahoo Group
* 09/11 - Dante: 40s, Italian businessman, knows the fun of a little competition, affable, friendly but with a secret. Must have an authentic Italian accent / speak some Italian. Source: Lost Spoilers

I'm a little disappointed that we haven't seen anything about Sun and Jin.

Was there any speculation on the identity of the person in the picture on the wall of the house that that "ghosthunter" visited last week?

Some debate surrounded the possibility of it being young Eko.

Huh? Wasn't that a picture of the grandmother's dead kid (presumably killed in some sort of drug-related incident)? Where'd all this Eko crap speculation come from?

I swear, people see mysteries where there are none with this show.

Seriously guys, how in the hell can it be Eko?

As far as is apparent, Miles was in the US. Not only that, but the kid was DEAD. Eko only recently died, as a man.

It makes no sense for it to be Eko.

LOL - Agreed. Can a kid just be a kid and have no relation to anything or anybody on the show...

Maybe if it was a major plot point, but it was just a simple flashback to show what Miles does for a living.

This is Lost. Nothing makes sense unless otherwise told.

What does he do for a living? Talk to dead people?

There are discrepancies regarding time on this show. Of course, it's not like they pointed that out by actually changing the pictures/frames on the wall .....

If you lived in Canada, you'd be only 90 minutes away.

Just for those not watching. The repeat of last week's show is the pop-up video version. I like the idea of doing it this way.

Let me be the first to say, that was fucking nuts.

and second, when Matt Damon retires the role, Sayid for Jason Bourne.

And the "island is in a different time than the rest of the world" theory is officially confirmed...

Maybe it's me, but I am not moved by the flash-forward storyline in tonight's episode. It just rings false in many ways.
