Because You Left
How much did you love that recap show?? I watched with my friend Lynn and we agreed it was the best recap show they have done so far. I loved how the co-creators provided insight on each character!
Then season five begins and we are being told this story in a very imaginative way. There is a great recap here! The time travel is enough to make my head spin. I love listening to Daniel Faraday explain it to Sawyer...that is how I need it broken down for me!! So basically the people on the island are stuck in this 'time loop' where they flash between the future and the past. I also love how this season opened in a very similar way as season two opened...with Desmond putting on the record on his turntable. I always enjoy the attention to detail:-)
John Locke is with The Others when the time travel begins. But where do the others go? I was so confused when Locke saw the plane crash. Didn't he dream that in season one?? Which account is correct...did he see it or dream it? Also....Richard, the man who never ages, gives Locke a compass....isn't that one of the items that he brought when he visits Locke as a child? Again...attention to detail...enough to make me crazy.
We see how Ben is trying to gather up the Oceanic Six to return to the island. Don't you think he is manipulating each and every one of them?? I think Ben is behind the lawyers visiting Kate and causing her to run. I think Ben knows what will lead each one of them back to the island.
We also find out that Desmond is somehow immune to the time travel or 'uniquely special'. I need to go read some message boards because I think Desmond and the lady at the end of the episode are somehow linked but I can not remember how. I just read this on who that woman was: Ms. Hawking! Now after Daniel's mention of his mother earlier tonight, it seems an awfully safe bet that she is the Faraday matron. However, Daniel said his mother was in Oxford. How did Ben get from LA to Oxford? If so, he has a way to travel there pretty fast (it was the same night that Hurley surrendered), which would lead to something many have speculated about - could there be DHARMA stations all over the planet? Regardless, Hawking is still my guess for the mother. Why else would she share so many of the same "interests" as Daniel? (source)
Also, Daniel Faraday and Desmond are connected too. Wasn't Desmond his "constant"? I have to go back and read my own blog:-)
Also, did Sun give you chills when she opened the door and said "Hello Kate"....oooo, something is creepy about her.
I had to laugh when Hurley was explaining to his mom what really happened on the island. Listening to someone try and explain the show just made me laugh.
So here are my questions:
1. Who is the lady with the white hair at the end?
2. Is John Locke dead?
3. I still am very curious...what happened to Claire?
4. Remind me what is with the nose bleeds? Why isn't Daniel helping Charlotte?
5. Who attacked them on the island?
I think this season is off to a great start! There is great LOST discussion going on at Rocks in my Dryer!
