(Readers, assume a spoiler warning for this thread).


Okay, so what's going to happen next? I've just finished watching the second have of the pilot, and it looks like it's steadily warping into a Jurassic Park type thing. What do you guys think? Who's going to die next week? The cop with the shrapnel, the old mystic type guy, the dog?
At least they're not chasing the fat guy around, yelling "kill the pig!" Not yet.

I'm wondering if the dog will become stew at some point... How long can the on-board food last? I guess they could eat the bear... not the liver, though because it will kill you with vitamin A poisoning.

Unless the Korean guy gets more successful at selling sea urchin as a source of protein, can cannibalism be much farther away?

Regarding the Terry O'Quinn character... maybe his dog whistle was just rehearsal for making a monster whistle....

Yeah, that guy's like a more normal version of the Sling Blade character. Anyone who has seen The Stepfather, though, will find it hard not suspect O'Quinn's character will not turn out to be on the side of goodness and light. I'm still not sure about that monster on the island -- it feels like a writer inserting an element to "pay off" later, a little laughable -- but I guess it's supposed to be darkly funny. The plot thread with the dying and suffering bounty hunter sure was disturbing!

I'm definitely hooked...

I'm hoping for a bit of Shakespeare's Tempest, with the monster turning out to be a particularly vicious Caliban... I can't wait to meed Miranda...

Possibly... when he asked the boy if he wanted to know a secret, while holding the light and dark pieces, I thought he was going to say they were exactly the same. But we didn't get to hear the secret, of course.

Oh, you just know there's some abandoned research station they'll fight their way to in the next few weeks, why is why I'm all for the Jurassic Park idea.

Oh yeah: remember how that baby kicked? And how happy the mom was? Wait til she finds out her baby's gone mutant from whatever's in the sushi.

Who do you think will have sex first? The Korean couple? Maybe the neurotic sister and the loud guy who found the gun.

Probably the second. Or the snotty little rich girl type might have sex with the drug addict, just to annoy her brother.

I'd like to see the Korean female get with the fat squeamish guy, because they'd be nice together, and the loud guy with the cop, assuming he doesn't die first, because they deserve each other. But that won't happen :)

Actually, they DO get together in ep. 3 but then the cop dies. Loud guy gets incredibly quiet, for a change.... Didn't you see Ep. 3 yet? I've already seen it twice...

No, I'm kinda backed up on my Replay requests. I'm at least two episodes behind on Jack & Bobby, also.

Lost is the best TV show.

I'm now picturing the Korean woman with the African American guy (the one with the son). After last night, seems like there's some mutual affection.

Although, that actor, Harold Perrineau, he always seems to bite it in movies. Like The Bear. Maybe it's just "token black guy syndrome" - which is kind of like "unnamed ensign syndrome" on Star Trek. But maybe Lost's producers will be clever enough to play against this expectation.

On the other hand, I read a quote from one of the producers warning people not to get too attached to any of the characters. Said there'll be a high body count by the end! Eek.

If the series goes on long enough, maybe they'll all be wearing 1,000,000 Years BC style costumes.

Last night's revelations about Locke were fantastic. Lost is throwing more curveballs than the first season of 24 so far.

I just hope it's not some weird dream that Sydney Bristow is having (or one of the crash survivors) during one of those long periods of unconsciousness that she seems to be prone to.

The thing with Locke threw me a little bit.... I mean, it would REALLY have to be a miracle, wouldn't it? If he was in a wheelchair for that long, even if the spinal column damage was repaired, his leg muscles would have atrophied so he wouldn't be able to run around all of a sudden like when he went to help the doctor guy dig a survivor out from under that wreckage in Episode 1.

What do you think is in that letter that the "loud guy" is reading all the time? A "dear john" from his girlfriend? From his BOYfriend?

***SPOILER***

Yes, the physical therapists in the audience were all groaning (as was I) when Locke just stands up and starts running after being in a wheelchair for four years. I just liked the way the show's creators played with our expectations about who Locke was.

Loud guy? You mean the tough guy -- Sawyer? There's no telling.

Um, I may be going out on a limb here but I think you're supposed to suspend your disbelief a bit for this show. Obviously there are some fantastical elements (a giant monster on the island? Unless it's just a really tall basketball player who was stranded in a previous crash...) and the fact that he healed up after being on the island (in addition to some of the other weirdnesses) must be related to some sort of metaphysical or fantastical elements on the island. It's a bit Twilight Zone/X Files-ish... but I guess we're supposed to accept his miraculous healing as being due to the island's weird properties.

Either that or he just crash-landed in a really beneficial way!

But that might be a red herring! The show hasn't exactly abandoned realism all together yet... Maybe these survivors are all sims in someone's virtual reality computer game...

Hmmm... what about that "ghost" the doctor guy kept seeing at the edge of the woods? Any ideas?

Hah, I was thinking the same thing! But maybe that was because my g/f was playing the new Sims2 game at the same time we were watching the last episode.

> Hmmm... what about that "ghost" the doctor guy kept seeing at the edge of the woods? Any ideas?
> ---------------------------------

I wonder if he may be somebody from the proverbial "other side of the island" (or parallel universe)?

Or he could be a vision of somebody from his past, or a ghost of one of the plane crash survivors...

Either that, or he's just really freaking out from malnutrition.

Somebody said it was "Forbidden Planet" and that made a lot of sense, with a mysterious "power source" and all. Hehe.

The other theory I heard was that the creators of the show were going all Sixth Sense on our asses and that everybody was dead. The man in the suit is one of the actual survivors.

I don't buy it. I think Jack is just sleep-deprived.

Is Locke's name John? John Locke? Like, John Locke John Locke? What's up with that?
