Previously, on Lost...


* Previously: "If you want to live, you need to come with me."
* Underwater. 'pulled the coordinates off this guy's map.'
* "It's... it's an airplane."
* Sunda Trench
* "Sam, why are you so upset?"
* Helicopter's in a bad way. One jumper, or, pushed. Gun!
* "I'm Daniel Farraday. I'm here to rescue you."
* Copter down. Lost his phone. Electrical storm, huh?
* (Zoe Bell and Jeff Fahey! Man.)
* So happy for the return of crazy Locke.
* Detour, cabin. "What did you say, Hugo?"

Sawyer: Mind telling me who you're taking your orders from, Colonel Kurtz?
Locke: I got them from Walt.

* Box. Gasmask! Man, he's a terrible liar.
* Rescue not primary objective. What the?!
* Locke told them that Ben shot him! Yay sharing information. Shot went through him, no kidney to hit! Awesome.
* Oh, hi Miles.
* Radio news report, all 324 passengers dead.
* Wait, Miles is a ghostbuster?!
* Heh. Naomi didn't have a sister.
* I'd like to thank Ben for proving he's still awesome.
* The light is strange? It doesn't scatter correctly? Uh, sure.
* Oh, hi Sayid. Nice timing.
* Tatooine Tunisia. Dig? Skeleton? ZOMG polar bear. With a Hydra Station collar! Wow.
* Daniel's tie is cracking me up, I note. Way to dress up for the rescue!
* Miles not-surprised reaction, hee.
* "Did you have him here on the island?" Way to blow your cover, lady.
* "See, there's your problem. We don't want to be found." -Locke
* Aquarium. Captain Ron? Hey, not the right pilot. "Because I was supposed to be flying Oceanic 815 that day."
* Flare!
* "What's wrong with you people?"
* "Sure, who are we to argue with Taller Ghost Walt?" -Sawyer
* Bullet-proof vest!
* Frank! Chopper!
* "So this is your team?" -Naomi
* 'high risk covert op in dangerous territory'
* "There were no survivors."
* "You weren't on that plane, were you?" -Frank
* "She's a native."
* "We're here for Benjamin Linus!" -Miles
* "What is the Monster?" -Locke
* "Her name is Charlottle Lewis." -Ben
* "These people are a threat... I know what they want."
* "I have a man on their boat." Again, with the awesome.

Neat little episode. The make-up of the 'rescue crew' is so weird: a ghostbuster, an anthropologist, the pilot who should have been flying, etc.

I totally fell asleep for the last fifteen minutes. I'll have to catch the ending on the DVR tonight.

Argh, I'm so hard, I still hate Ben, though I was amused at the bemused look on his face at Locke's, "What did you say Hurley?" Ben totally knows.

Am I bad a person for wanting Locke to get put in his place? "The storm's about to let up"
Me: "Ah, thank you your holiness. WOULD YOU SHUT UP??"
I don't even care if he's right. He's still an ass. Besides, Hurley would make a better "The One." In general, saviors who know and act like they are all-wise saviors are annoying. Saviors who are sort of stumbling around and doing their best are charming.

Note of, god-ferbid, logic. If Charlotte and crew are there to get Ben because he's in trouble - for, I dunno, killing off Darma? - it was pretty obvious that the people who had him tied up and beaten bloody weren't fond of him. How hard would it be to have started out with, "Ah, we're not after you all, we're after psycho-boy there."

I think that's one of the things about not sharing info that is so frustrating. It constantly leaves the doors open for wonder-Locke or all-knowing Ben to make what they know super-powerful.

Ok, rant off.

And I don't think Ben knew about Hurley's connection before! Discovery!

"Ah, we're not after you all, we're after psycho-boy there."

True. But again, the Rescue Crew seems, well, haphazard, and weird. Sometimes in a good way! (I can't decide which of them I like best, but Frank's top contender right now.)

The fashion police really are relentless when pursuing top offenders, it seems. Nice white sweater vest, Ben.
PMMJ: Saucy!cheetahmaster on February 8th, 2008 04:42 pm (UTC)
Oh, man. 70's Ben. Solid gold.
Alexdevolutionary on February 8th, 2008 05:45 pm (UTC)
Dude, that's not 70's Ben, that's a photo from Locke's Spirit Vision Quest.

How the shit did they get a *photo* of that?
PMMJ: TVcheetahmaster on February 8th, 2008 06:18 pm (UTC)
Um, I don't believe Locke's airport vision was set in the 70's, and I do believe Ben was in a uniform during it, because he was a security guard.
Alexdevolutionary on February 8th, 2008 06:27 pm (UTC)
Man, I could have sworn that the thing he's standing next to in that photo was a bag-x-ray machine.

In the list of names, put Jeremy Davies the actor who plays Daniel Faraday. He's best known to me as the correspondant type who goes along with the squad in "Saving Private Ryan". (he was also in "Twister" though in a much smaller role)

er, how does Zoe Bell connect to the show, though?

Something I have been mulling over was the condition of the pilot. He was pretty well abused, though the helicopter was looking pretty good. Very good. I keep wondering why he looks to be in such bad shape. We only came across him as he was climbing up the slope, so we do have some missing time for him. Ostensibly, this was to hide the fact that the helicopter was in one piece, but it does leave me wondering if there's more to the story in that time period.

Having been late in catching up, I'll add that I think it's neat that Hurley can make 'things' go away. Maybe the mental problems he's had are helping him see through things that aren't real? Dunno.

Good start to what'll be a sadly short season.

She was Charlotte, the anthropologist.

Maybe the mental problems he's had are helping him see through things that aren't real? Dunno.

Actually, I think it's letting him see things that others don't. When he saw the cabin, in addition to Locke, that was a big honkin' clue. That plus his magic numbers might mean he has the same connection that Locke does, or a different one.

Charlotte is listed as being played by Rebecca Mader.

hrm, as for seeing things others don't, I guess that is also true indeed. Someone else pointed out that he really did see someone in the chair. (plus the other person, who I didn't get a look at but someone else insisted was the Russian.)
PMMJ: TVcheetahmaster on February 10th, 2008 03:45 pm (UTC)

The worst part is, this is the second time I've mixed up Zoe Bell with someone else, so I checked ahead of time. And now, naturally, the site I checked has changed their tune. Sigh.

So I guess she was just in the credits, but not this episode. Funky.
Capncaptain_boots on February 10th, 2008 07:16 pm (UTC)
I've been caught by that too, mostly in Heroes. Jeremy Davies had me thinking at the end of the first episode that I knew who he was, but it was a really bad shot and couldn't figure it out until this episode.
Strange Detractor: kittenprofessorbooty on February 10th, 2008 03:35 am (UTC)
Also, Jeremy Davies played a similarly uh... "lost" character in Million Dollar Hotel, which was pretty good if you like ragtag bands of people who aren't right in the head.

allamericanboi has a theory -- Michael is Ben's man on the boat.

I think its an excellent theory.
Capncaptain_boots on February 9th, 2008 02:54 am (UTC)
It's an entirely excellent theory.

Ooh, fas-cin-a-ting.
