Deep, I'm not being critical at all - everyone's entitled to view shows through their own perceptions and to have their own opinions - I'm just genuinely curious: why is is that Lost needs to have plausible explanations for everything for you not to be disappointed? Some of the best shows ever in the history of television have attributed events to the fantastical, why not Lost?

That's a fair point, shows like Twin Peaks or The Prisoner certainly left people wondering and/or confused upon their conclusion.

However, Lost certainly seems eager to bring things back to the real world, and not just geographically. From listening to the producers, it doesn't seem like they want people to be left simply with more questions.

I don't think that they'll leave people with more questions. I think they'll bring it back to real world as much as possible, but that some things will remain that they'll pretty much have to explain with magic, the supernatural, or science fiction. While I don't really buy, at this point, that the the people are magical, they obviously have something about them that has caused the island or one of the factions battling over the island to want them there. I think it's much easier to attribute any possible magic as being a property of the island, that maybe gets transferred to some of the people.

Funny you should mention Twin Peaks, that's one of the ones I had in mind. I'm currently rewatching it on DVD. I'm a couple of episodes into the second season. I haven't seen it since it originally aired.

So, what occurred to me is this: what if Jacob's "help me" plea to Locke is because Christian has done something to Jacob like trapping him, or something else that would prevent him from having power over the island and its inhabitants? In my scenario, Jacob is a good guy, probably the rightful ultimate power of the island, and Christian is the bad guy, inhibiting Jacob and taking over that power somehow, to exert his own (evil) will over the island, and Jacob needs help to be freed to take his power back.

I agree totally about Ben ...he seemed very defeated and unsettled in this episode...but I think he is not giving up so quickly and quietly////and on another note...he is absolutely awesome in this role...he always commands total attention when on the screen

I also find your theory about Jacob and Christian to be a very good one...Christian just seems totally evil to me ...it will be interesting to see who Jacob is..

amd obviously a lot of us are Twin Peaks fans here...hopefully Jacob will not be a "Bob" like character///that Bob gave me the damn CREEPS!

Well we've already seen what Ben's got going on in the flash-forwards, so he certainly hasn't given up for good.

Yeah. I meant something more immediate that that, though. When Ben said something to the effect of "you made him think it was his idea," to Locke about Hurley, I think that's what Ben's essentially doing to Locke right now, acting as if he's conceded power to Locke when he's actually manipulating him.

Season 3 doesn't start out very good, especially with the introductions of the new vacant & attractive cast members. But it picks up steam after the first 6 or 7 episodes.

I almost forgot, when Richard went in to test young John for his "special school," did anyone else think he was about to say "you're a wizard, Johnny!"

I think it's fitting. He's on Lost, not Heroes.

I am still on the Lilly kick. Maybe this is more of a biblical thing - John and Jesus - their mothers had the same name. Lostpedia has a biblical reference to the way John's mother told the nurse what to name him.

Still searching.

Love the Christian Sheppard idea by the way. Maybe he has Jacob trapped.

If you have iTunes you can get them of there for $1.99! All the seasons are avilable. I only have season 6 and 7 on DVD.
