no LOST posts on LJ? None?  
I got home late last night and watched LOST on tape while eating dinner, and was just too tired to do my real-time blogging and discussion.

Summary: I liked it, it was obvious they are getting the pieces in places for the finale. Including moving a couple pieces off the board, so to speak. (Incidentally, I called all the deaths a couple minutes beforehand). Some characters took turns that were a little bit surprising, while other turns were not so surprising.

The Sideways world was intriguing. The lines of the Sideways characters are drawing closer together.

The big mystery is how the big mysteries wrap up: what happens on the island, or even with the island? What happens with the Sideways timeline? And, at the core of both questions, what happens to our beloved characters?

5 days left. I know where *I'll* be all Sunday evening.

Aw shucks, I was looking forward to your real-time analysis.

Pretty good ep. They wrapped up a few things, but I was really disappointed in Widmore's *apparent* demise. Seemed too easy. I figure he must've been wearing a bulletproof vest. I sure hope so. We really needed more Widmore/Ben answers.

Re: recap
Well, maybe I'll watch the online tonight and do a real-time blog. I find it does raise my understanding of the show.

Widmore is dead. D-E-D. Richard, on the other hand, I'm holding out hope that he might be alive and make an appearance in the finale. Beaten and bruised, but alive.

I think Ben has something up his sleeve wrt Man In Black. Not that he's immune from settling a few old scores along the way...

Re: recap
I did a real-time blog anyway! See following post.

I posted! Although it was a little later this morning :)

I'm kind of glad Widmore and Zoe got wiped off the board to make room for the finale. And I thought Ben's turn was interesting, although I think he's back to trying to game UnLocke.

And Richard Alpert better still be alive!

I'm a bit bummed on Widmore, as I thought the character had more to offer the show and the mythology. But oh well.

I agree - I think Ben has something up his sleeve. Remember he has a backpack full of C4. He might be looking for some final redemption. Of course, he's not adverse to settling a few old scores.

I'm thinking Richard is alive too - though I knew something bad was going to happen to him by the way they laid out the scene...

Now I'll go check out your post!

Does Ben have the C4 or did Richard? I couldn't remember and I already deleted it. (Stoo-pid Dave!)

Actually, Miles has it.

Miles! He always gets the best lines. "Good luck with that" to Richard. And my new favorite, something I have to find occasion to use one day: "If you need me, I'll be running through the jungle."


Hm. Miles has the C4. Very interesting. Miles the reluctant hero, perhaps.
