The final season of Lost starts Tuesday, Feb. 2. It's going to be on Tuesdays instead of Wednesdays this season, so mark your calenders!

Well, the premiere had one or two "HOLY CRAP!" moments, didn't it.

It's really fun to see Ben Linus be dumbstruck for a change and to have "John Locke" be supremely creepy.

I've had the "Lost Last Supper" picture as my Windows desktop background for a while, and it has a whole new meaning after watching that first episode!

Thoughts on whether or not the "alternate storyline" will continue throughout the season? My roommates theorized that it'll continue and eventually connect linearly at the very end.

Watching Lost again is like getting to see one of your close friends you haven't seen a while. What a welcome it is getting to see the cast doing its thing. And I agree Cinenaut, it's quite entertaining to see Locke and Ben change their positions.

Ideas on where "home" is for 'ole Smokey? Interesting to see the others at the temple. Richard seems to be in a lot of trouble, did he lead the others into a devotion of Jacob which Smokey didn't approve of?

Ah Lost time, the only time of the year when rampant schizo theorizing becomes acceptable communal entertainment.

Yeah, I think the other timeline will somehow merge with this one. One clue is Juliette talking about coffee as she died. They might start flipping back and forth between the timelines, like Desmond did in his own timeline when he became unstuck in time.

When Smokey Locke said he wanted to go home, I had a terrible idea that he was an extraterrestrial. I hope not! It would suck if the island turned out to be a spaceship or something silly like that.

Things just keep getting more interesting with this episode. It's funny how a lot of Lost fans hate Kate. She's kind of the Wesley Crusher of Lost.

Claire is the new Rousseau? Is she really "claimed?" Does that mean she died?

Finally caught up with all three hours of the new Lost and at first felt, well, lost. But I do think the alternate storyline will all merge in some cohesive way within a few episodes. Will be interesting to see what they do with it. Can't say I still have 100% faith in the writers to have this all cohere and conclude in satisfying fashion, but hoping I'm wrong and they are on top of things completely. I'm a bit sick of that damned temple, too.

Did anyone expect that Sayeed was really dead? I assumed he wasn't or if he was he'd come back due to some mystical mumbo jumbo but didn't expect it to happen that fast! ;-) But seriously, still greatly intrigued and really glad I know it's ending soon or I'd be more impatient with things.

Hurley had a few funny lines last night, too.

Speaking of Kate, here's a "Mythology-free Lost Review (Kate and Sawyer's anger)" from EW's Ken Tucker.

Last night we finally got to see Richard Alpert's flashback. What a great episode!













Is the smoke monster a genie?

Okay, I'm finally about to watch this one. I hadn't seen last week's til now because my channel 7 wasn't coming in last week I guess and my Tivo recorded the channel next door, and I once again got an hour of Seinfeld. Fun. So I watched it online.

Anyway, will report back!

I thought last week's episode featuring Richard was terrific; it was like watching a feature film in its scope and daring. Really crucial episode. This week's wasn't as strong but still building well to the final stand-off. I like how ambiguous it still is as far as who is really good and evil (though obviously it is now set up that the MiB is evil and Jacob is good, the protector. And Whidmore too?) Still, I worry it's all just going to end in a big fight of some kind and then who cares?

But it seems there will be some satisfying character resolution before it's all over.

Did anyone else get that annoying "V" countdown clock through the whole episode? I finally ended up watching it online the next day, to avoid that.

Isn't it just a manifestation from the Man in Black? He's a shapeshifter who can manifest himself as the smoke monster. No?

Great episode with Desmond I thought. Really starting to bring some key elements together. Some of it still feels like mumbo jumbo they came up with later in the story process to contrive a connection, but some of it feels like, "Oh, they did have a plan for these story arcs after all."

How are people feeling as it heads to its final few episodes?

I'm still confused by the Faraday/Whidmore family connections to it all...

Not to spoil the ending too much, but:







Bob Newhart really has wild dreams, doesn't he?

Hee hee, I made that same joke on Facebook. ;-)

Actually it ends with Penny waking up from a dream and finding Desmond in the shower.

I was just thinking of the island as a bottle and smokey as a genie trapped in that bottle. He's always tempting people with wishes, too.

I've seen comments from people who've recently watched the whole thing on DVD saying that it seems a lot less random if you sit down and go through a bunch of episodes at a time.

I'm feeling exhilarated as it goes into the final episodes, but I'm afraid I'm going to have a major case of "is that all there is?" at the end.

I can't keep the Faraday / Whidmore family tree straight, either. Of course, the fact that things are different in the flash sideways world probably doesn't help.

I loved the look on Desmond's face at the end of the last episode.

Bob Newhart, speaking into a phone...

Bob: It was an island. It looked a lot like Hawaii.

Bob: No, I don't think it was Hawaii, because it moved.

Bob: This fellow turned a frozen donkey wheel.

Bob: Donkey wheel, that's right, and then it was the seventies.

Bob: Everybody was wearing jumpsuits.

Bob: I know it sounds crazy. I haven't even told you about the rampaging smoke pillar.

Bob: Pillar of smoke. Pillar of smoke. It knocked over trees and killed people.

Bob: I haven't been smoking anything!

Bob: And to think I thought waking up with a different wife was strange.

Anyone else a little annoyed by those moments where they become close to telling you something and then promptly turn the other way? A few weeks ago it happened when Widmore was going to tell Sawyer why he was there and for what purpose. This week it happened when Richard was going on about "Jacob told me what the island is." And no one cared to have him continue and elaborate?!

Gah!!

How many more episodes do we have left in the season? I'm glad Desmond finally showed up, I feel like things have started to at least pick up momentum with his arrival. Especially, I'd say, the parallel storylines have gotten more interesting, with him seemingly consciously intervening.

Anyone thinking Jack's recent behavioral transformation might lead him to end up as a Jacob's successor? From someone who was constantly intervening to have his way to a more backseat mentality relying on faith in others?
