LOST – Some Like It Hoth

Thoughts about tonight’s episode:

First off, this theory about Miles being Pierre Chang’s son was right on the mark.

Why are does Chang and the rest of the Dharma leadership find it important to hide that body? Why act like it doesn’t exist? Just to prevent panic among the Dharma folks?

So, we saw the numbers being put on the hatch. The crew called it a serial number… was it only that? Is this whole number thing destined to be one of the mysteries of the show that will never be solved?

Speaking of mysteries: “Do you know what lies in the shadow of the statue?” is LOST’s “Save the cheerleader, Save the World”. My guess? The Others are protecting a portal to the afterlife.

So, what did you think about Mile’s brief kidnapping? Yeah, I know Ben was probably behind it. I’m not sure the story line has room for a fourth group of “Others” wanting their way on the island.

Fourth? Didn’t I mean third? Nope, Ben’s group, Charles’ group, and … Richard Alpert’s group. I think those are the three that are trying to get the power on the island. Ben and Charles might be at each other’s throats, but I think it’s Richard Alpert who is pulling the strings.

And the theory about who really put that plane in the ocean has been put to rest – the winner is: Charles Widmore. He paid to have graves dug up, and an old plane sunk in the ocean, just to cover things up so that no one would keep looking for that plane.

How random is that $1.6 million that Miles was offered to go to the island? Why $1.6 million? That $3.2 million figure that Miles wanted from Ben seems to only turn out to be double the number Charles offered. I’m a bit disappointed by that revelation.

Things are rapidly spinning out of control now that Sawyer hit Phil. That, combined with Roger’s suspicions of Kate are going to bring things to a head.

Oh, and if you didn’t realize it before then “Hoth” is the ice planet in Empire Strikes back.

Favorite parts:

Hurley writing “Empire Strikes Back” and the “Let’s face it, Ewoks suck, dude” line.

Lost “Special” next week, and all new LOST in two weeks!

  1. How do we know Widmore faked the plane? Did I miss something in the episode?

    It sure seems like there is a fourth faction out there. I’m not convinced Ben is behind them yet.

  2. I tend to think there is another group at work, although it is likely to upset some fans to introduce it this late in the game. I’m not sure they are “new” just not identified as different yet.

    I did not feel any grand new information was revealed. We already knew Miles could speak to the dead and it was not shocking that Pierre Chang was Miles’ dad… What I have been curious about for 3 episodes is where Dan was.

    And I thought ABC had promised new episodes through the whole season — no repeats and no interruptions. Have we expanded the definition to include clip shows “from a different perspective”?

  3. The reference to the plane and Widmore’s involvement happened when Miles talked to the corpse in the restaurant kitchen.

  4. Great, Dan is back. Now when do Rose and Bernard show up? This is going to bug me until it is explained.

  5. i believe that the group that keeps uttering “do you know what lies in the shadow of the statue?” actually is working for Ben. The crazy chick who seduced then took captive Sayid said that to him before she knocked him out and she said it to Locke. Then we see flashbacks of Miles in the van and the first thing dude says to him is “do you know what lies in the shadow of the statue?” the anwser could only be known by someone who’d been on the island like the others.

    I didnt know we needed confirmation that Widmore faked the plane that was “found”, we knew that because someone (cant remember) found the invoices for the dead bodies before Miles spoke to the dead dude.

    And yes we learned that Miles was Kharma initiative video dudes son in season opener…

    i Effin LOVE L-O-S-T!

  6. and YES ABC is whack for that because they did promise no interruptions…

    Hopefully this ‘new episonde’ will revela something instead of confuse us futher there arent enough episones left for that!
