Either Aaron IS an Oceanic Six member OR the writers screwed us in the promos.

I'm pretty sure it said 9/22/2004.

What I didn't like about Jin's flashback is that it was only used to try and trick the audience because there was no real character payoff about Jin, besides just getting more info on Jin being a glorified carrier for his boss. I knew there was something off about Jin because he was back to being a-hole Jin, and his cell phone was pretty clunky and old-looking.

It does have to make you wonder, especially since the cast members that have had run ins with the law have been killed off somehow.

Great, forever more weeks of hearing 'AARON IS ONE OF THE OCEANIC SIX!'.

I give them props for the flashback/flashforward thing. They are definitely having fun with that.

That was a mighty cheap swerve with the flash forward/back. Shame on you Lost writers.

It would just be too easy to have Jin die next week even if we think he's dead this week....

Wow. That was a great episode. Very emotional ending. I knew something like that was going to happen, but I was thinking/worrying it would be Sun.

I guess it really, really doesn't pay to get involved in a DUI or similar situation when you're a cast member of this show.

No, Jin's was not a flashforward. It was a pre-island flashback. He said he had only been married two months.

The writers are having a great time toying with us using the flashbacks/flashforwards. Letting us not know which is which at first is a great idea, and they're milking every possible storytelling opportunity out of that structure.

I guess Aaron actually is one of the Six, after all. Either that or Jin does make it off the island, but dies later (not likely).

Thats what I thought at first too, but consider what I wrote in last weeks thread about the writers mentioning Ana-Lucia a few times to build up Michael's Return. I wouldn't be surprised if Jin's flashback was really meant to reintroduce Paik and this business partner.

IMHO, it's gotta be Claire - she's not needed on the show anymore now that Charlie is dead, plus it's already been made clear that Kate will end up with Aaron. Jin is the only other viable option I can think of, but it just strikes me as unlikely that he'd be written out at this point.

These actors playing the freighter people don't last very long... Fisher Stevens and now Zoe Bell.

I've lost track, but if this is the case isn't this a perfect record of that happening on this show now?

If Jin is really still alive on the island why would Hurley say to Sun, "So...I guess we should like, go see him?" when only the two of them were present? And why would Sun speak to his tombstone? They'd both be in the know if any kind of cover-up like that was going on and he was still on the island, surely.

I thought it was kind of obvious that Jin wasn't rushing to the hospital to see Sun.

Sayid & Desmond were pretty smart for not letting on that they knew Michael. I wonder if we're in store for more "WALT! WALT!"

Who stole the panda? Another LOST mystery!

What TV show was Sun watching? I hate missing details, beause they're usually important.

Wait, this is how I interpreted this weeks episode:

Both Jin and Sun scenes were flashforwards. Jin and Sun both get off the island completing the Oceanic 6. However, something happens while back in the real world where Sun thinks Jin is dead and more than likely Jin thinks the same of Sun. Jin is married to someone else when he says "I've only been married for 2 months!"

I could be wrong but didn't anyone else think that?

I just think it would be too obvious....that's just me. Unless they kill someone else off next week, then it would be ok, but going by the tombstone....it said 9.22.2004, the day the plane crashed. That's my reason for thinking differently.
