Doubt it since Jack was at Kate's trial. Aaron would only be 8 or 9 months old in July/Aug 05, but he was clearly shown as around 2 years old with Kate.

But it just went on and on and on until finally people are all screaming "OH MY GOD, WHERE'S ZOE BELL?"

I know it's a SAG rule for everyone to have to be included in the credits, but they need to figure out a way around it, since the credits totally spoiled Michael's "surprise" appearance.
FWIW, Zoe Bell was Juliet's body double for the female fight scene at the Tempest. At least she got some work!

I guess I'd like to know why Sun's family (father esp) didn't show up for the birth. That seems very odd to me, considering her father probably was terribly upset when she went missing. I guess.... did her family even know she was on that flight?

I think this episode showed Hurley before he was back in the hospital.

The thing that really peaked my interest in the episode was that Jin was all of a sudden speaking and understanding English in such a short time. Remember all of these events have been over a week or so and his progression has been questionable.

In season one Hurley shows up on the TV as the lottery winner when Jin runs into the man's home to beat him up. In season two, Jin appears to Hurley in a dream, speaking perfect English next to the chicken suit. Then Jin suggests that Hurley is the one speaking Korean. Perhaps the Hurley/Jin/Sun future connection has been playing out all along?

My guess is that we're dealing with a situation one way or another where she has been disowned.

That's what I was just thinking too. Old man Paik probably figured out she was running away when going to the US. Or he's a partner with Widmore and can't see her because of that or something. Or he's dead. Who knows.

He did say that.

I thought Sayid introduced himself as one of the 06 right before he shot him. The guy certainly looked shocked.

Interesting point about Sayid. Someone's going to have to go back and check out that scene Just checked it out on ABC.com. About 4:45 minutes into The Economist Sayid reveals he is living off a settlement from a plane crash..."Oceanic Airlines flight 815. I am Sayid Jarrah, one of the Oceanic 6." At which point the guy seems spooked, takes his golf swing, wins the bet and gets shot by Sayid.

Could be if she is claiming the baby is someone other than Jin's. That would bring shame on the family name.

Something just seemed off about Jin's scenes so I figured the writers were doing the flashback/flashforward thing.

Thanks for the input guys!

*ahem*



Still, Lost is pretty damn good.

Clearly, I was thinking too hard.
That's what I was thinking, das.




Overall, a pretty good episode. I actually yelled at my TV when Juliet snitched on Sun.

Also, since when is Mr. Paik involved in this conspiracy now? Is everyone assuming this just because he's wealthy?

Also, nice to see Delroy Lindo back on TV.

I wanted to see a fistfight between her and the captain while she was strapped to the bow of the ship.

Okay, answering my own question then. A boatload of juicy info on the map he and Charlotte were looking at. The part that's hard to read says:

8 degrees N 33 degrees E

Follow the river
to the East end of
the Grotto - head
due East towards
the smaller mountain
range. Helipad found
just North of mountains.

At the top of the map it says:

possible door through Northern mountains with an arrow pointing up through two mountain ranges. Could this be where one travels to and from the island?

There is also a Dharma symbol (much like for the hatches) in the mountains. This is either another hatch or the Helipad.

It's just a guess...the reasoning for me being that at one point or another (maybe during that "game" they had a couple summers ago), it was sort of implied that Paik Industries worked with Hanso or Widmore, I think. And it would sort of be right up his alley, what with his mafia-type dealings and such.

That looks like the symbol for the Tempest, where they were last week, with the gas.

Yes, I thought that as well. The helipad is more likely on a flatter surface anyway. My guess is that Lapidus and the other guy from the freighter are meeting up with Charlotte and Dan here (at the helipad). They have to find that door so they can ultimately get the survivors back (Oceanic 6).

I'll post some of the more interesting screenshots to past the time! All taken from the easter eggs website.

Here a picture of the axe in the boat.

Satellite photos of the island in the captain's chambers.

I haven't seen this mentioned here, but EW's writer suggests that the Zoe Bell character killed herself because she was Naomi's lover. He says the inscribed bracelet Naomi wore was a gift from the Bell character. Can anyone confirm this?

I love reading these threads, but not because of the show. The fact that some people on here think they know everything about this show, but have been proven wrong time and time again makes me

Are those photos really as brown as they look like in the picture?

Damn, the more I watch this show... the less I really know for sure.

And do you guys think that the big media-fuss about the 'Oceanic Six' is because of Widmore successfully exploiting the island? Obviously this is a much bigger deal than just survivors from a plane crash (who I think would realistically be on and off Oprah and other shows for a month then you'd never hear of them again).
