Unrelated mostly, but I had the WEIRDEST dream last night.

Involved me being in some bizarre-o version of Lost, where we weren't exactly on the Island, but not in the normal world either. Other people I knew form college were there, I was in some Eastern European city at one point. It was EXTREMELY disjointed and I don't remember many of the specifics, as these things often go. But at one point I think I was sitting around with some of the survivors in some house, and we were getting ready to watch Lost...yeah...and Kate kept crawling into my lap to cuddle with me, which made Jack really upset. And while I didn't mind the affection (I think we kissed once or twice...but that's getting a little too imtimate ), I was distracted with some metal nail or something I got stuck deep in my thumb. Someone told me I should ask Jack to help remove it, but he was so upset by the Kate thing that I didn't want to ask him. However, we were in a bar or something at one point, and he was all teary-eyed and edgy like he always was, and I talked to him about how I didn't want her to be with me since I know you two love each other and all that jazz and how you two belong together and blah blah blah.

Then I was back in this weird European/New York hybrid city place walking back from somewhere (I think I tried to sneak into someone's apartment...) when I came across my friend Derek, who desperately wanted me to play frogger with him. But I found myself in some diner eventually (this all took place at night, and I may or may not have been with Kate and Jack at this point) where Desmond, Ben, Penny and some other person from the show were all sitting in a booth. I walk up, Ben shoots Penny in the head, and Desmond blows Ben's head clean off in the diner. I get really upset because I guess all those characters I love so much are dead and their storyline came to an end.

That was the end. But the whole intimate thing with Kate and Jack was really intricate, and felt more real than most dreams. So strange. Guess that's what happens when you get so deeply invested in characters over 4 seasons of a tv show. And it was bizarre because I've never been particularly attracted to Kate on the show, at least not since the 1st season or so. But hey, I wasn't complaining.

Awesome episode!

I must have missed something somewhere - what's the deal with Desmond vs. Ben? Was it in the preview for next week's episode? 'Cause my channel didn't show that. Going to look for it now...

It seemed like they had a commercial break every 2 minutes, which kinda got annoying after a while.

Otherwise it was fantastic. Sad to see Alex die, though. Ben's look of shock when the dude actually killed her was awesome!

Sawyer is the unsung hero of the whole crew.
I'd make out with him.

You weren't watching this episode with Muldfield and his brother by any chance, were you?

Right, this flash forward seemed to be the most recent, and the date was October 25, 2005. That is over a year after the plane crashed on the island. Through last night, they've only been on the island for 97 days through four seasons. So that means we get through an entire year or so in the remaining episodes of this season?

Doesn't make sense, unless the flash forwards continue to get closer and closer to present day, which I guess could happen.

Of course, we know there is some sort of time thing going on here as well, so maybe that plays a part.

I guess we'll find out soon enough.
I think that throughout the rest of this season (that's 5 more episodes?), we'll only see a few more days pass on the island, that island time will pass on the series as it always has, pretty close to around one day per episode or whatever. But the flashforwards haven't established any sort of time pattern other than the fact that they're moving in reverse chronological order. So, with the one last night being just over a year after the crash, the next one may be 9 months after, the one after that 5 months after, the one after that could be 2 months, etc, until they meet.

I have no idea how they'll go next season, if they'll flash back or forward or do away with the concept entirely (doubtful, imo).

You're right! By a couple of months, at least.

See my sig.

Events on this show are so hard to keep track of.

that both Desmond and Ben are very much aware of and have interacted with the Whitmore character

so there is the link

Ben and Whitmore are, as far as we can tell now, the two "heads" of rival factions vying for control of the island...to put it very generically. In the last scene of this episode Ben said he was going to kill Whitmore's daughter, Penny, to avenge Alex's death....you know, Penny, Desmond's now-reunited love...thus the Ben vs. Desmond conflict.

Solid episode. A few moments of dreadful, dreadful dialogue and unintentional hamminess, but I had fun. Good stuff. I'm looking forward to seeing how this season wraps up...and pretty upset about waiting, like, another 8 months to see anything new. Fucking ridiculous, that.

Thanks.

I should have used my brain. I obviously knew about this, but thought there was another aspect that I had missed in the show.

Gotta love how my brain just goes on vacation when I watch this show.

I'm waiting for the next season of "Lost" to merge with "Alias."
