5.11 Whatever Happened Happened (Kate)
That’s a blatant continuity error to move Ben’s gun shot from one side to the other. I don’t think it was done by accident. The moments Jin was unconscious, we don’t know if Jacob came to change things. I just hope it gets answered before the show finishes.
I don’t know why Sayid would try to change outcome of Ben by shooting him (i guess it was part of Sayid’s personality as we saw in a previous episode) had he not been that way it’s possible they could have nurtured him into a better person, since he was still young he would have been meek enough and might have change the way he could have turned out to be.
It’s possible that Roger changed the way he treated Ben after he had been shot, we don’t really see him acting like the S.O.B we knew him to be previous to this. So had Ben been fixed by Jack, Ben would have been a better person from the experience. Jack didn’t realize it was the islands doing, to send him back to fix this.
The time Sawyer whispered in Kate’s ear had to be longer than what we saw. I fail to realise how Sawyer could have given her that much detail about his daughter than he had time to. And when did Kate realise that Cassidy was the same Cassidy she knew back in a flashback.
I think Clementine is sitting on a whole heap of cash she doesn’t even know. Not only did Sawyer give her reward money from ratting in a guy at the prison, but the settlement money from Kate also added to that.
I don’t know if anyone else felt it, but I really wanted to see what would happen if Ben did die. Then the future would be changed. It just illustrates the role that the island plays in keeping him alive. Had it not been for Richard Alpert and the hostiles, Juliet, Sawyer, Kate & the Temple then there would be no way Ben would still be alive. Why is Ben so important? or is it the underlying theme, that whatever happened, happened, and that’s what’s keeping Ben alive. Had Jack fixed Ben, how would be he the killer and manipulator that he is. I thought the reason Kate feels for boy Ben is that she knows what it feels like to lose a son. It’s also ironic that Jack said he will let the island do everything, if it was up to the island Jack would be dead due to his appendicitis. Then he wouldn’t be back in the past with Dharma. So there’s an inconsistency in the story somewhere, or Jack just doesn’t get it.
Aaron is such a brave boy to be persuaded to stay with a person he’s never met before, in his grandmother.
I listened to the Transmissions Master Class 3 podcast and it was interesting to hear one of the costume designers to mention that the Others/Hostiles are actually a sophisticated bunch, and the ragged clothes is only an outfit. It was hard to look at Richard in a different light after those comments.
When Richard takes Ben to the temple to be healed. I don’t think he takes him there to see Jacob to heal him, rather he uses the Temple in either a ritual or a device that is in there to assist Ben. Richard walks into the Temple wall but it’s not actually the temple, is it?
5.12 Dead is Dead (Ben)
If Locke is smokey, then how did smokey get over to the Hydra Island. That’s why I think he’s the nemesis, and the same question begs, how did nemesis get to the other island.
They way Ben woke up in the infirmary with Locke starting down at him was definitely different between previous episodes.
I thought Ben lost his innocence, it doesn’t explain why Ben still is so soft on mothers and children, when he didn’t want to shoot Danielle.
It’s funny seeing Ben & Locke trying to take dominance over each other. And it’s the same thing Ben & Charles are demonstrating to Richard in the flashback.
When Widmore get’s banished and it was revealed that he was seeing a woman off island. Why is this not Eloise? I guess she left not much later after she shot her son, and then probably continued seeing Widmore.
It’s weird we keep seeing the same corner of the temple wall as we have seen in previous episodes. I didn’t think they were that cheap with the budget.
I wonder who would be in charge of the world? is it the island, or the two Jacob and Nemesis? or even someone above them? It seems the island hasn’t a need for Ben anymore, but the island still won’t let Ben die. Which leads me to believe Nemesis needs Ben to kill Jacob still, so he’s the one keeping Ben alive, even though he’d been banished.
I have a feeling Ilana knows that Jacob is going to be killed and therefore going to take the form that his Nemesis takes. Which is the reason they need Lapidus, so that Jacob can use his body. The same way Locke’s is being used.
Another reason why the smoke monster seems to appear when John isn’t there is because maybe the smoke monster can’t be where Nemesis or Jacob is.
Think the real judgement came when Alex pulled Ben aside and asked him to follow John’s every word. If he had denied this, then he would have died. The same thing happened to Eko, he didn’t show remorse over his killings, so Yemi (Smokey) killed him.
If Smokey was the servant of whoever John is now, then I wonder why John didn’t show any emotion to the monster letting Ben live. I would have expected John to smirk, as if he knew ‘of course it let you live’, ‘it’s all part of my plan’.
5.13 Some Like it Hoth (Miles)
I’m sure it’s the radiation leak from Jughead that lead to Mile’s mom being sick in the future, and possibly giving Mile’s the ability to interrogate the dead.
How is it that they are able to build all these stations and not be detected by the hostiles. That fence around the swan wasn’t going to insulate sound or anything.
I’m not sure how Miles was able to talk to the dead grandson in season 4, when he requires the body of the dead present. I don’t think Hurley’s powers are better, Hurley can only talk to the dead that he knows, where Miles can talk to just about any dead people.
Mile’s got the hard end the bargain, he won’t ever get his $1.6Million.
This guy Alverez ends up in the Dharma ditch where Locke tried to kill himself didn’t he? There was a skeleton with a hole in its head, then what is it doing in the Orchid?
