I think Jack was right and that bomb wouldn't have done anything if they didn't mess with it.

But damn. what to say...

I'm glad they reverted back to Vintage Sayid for a little while to give him his swan song, and he got a really awesome death scene! But very sad to see him go. But Jacks line to Hurley was way awesome. "There IS no Sayid!"

Sun and Jin was pretty sad for me. But it answered a few things from last week.. like.. I'm glad, in the end, he spoke to her in Korean. that was a gripe a few of us had after the last episode when they came back.. and now I can see that they were just saving it for this moment.

And poor Frank. He went out like a punk! he got knocked out and everybody just plain forgot to get him! hahaha. I wasn't sure he was dead at first, but since nobody dragged him up, he was gone. I knew the second that the plane was out of the picture he was in trouble.

But 4 major deaths, 3 of them super major all in one episode. Jebus!!

No, I agree, Sun and Jin's death was no where near as moving as Charlie's, but it reminded me of Charlie's drowning, but Des survived.

Can someone remind me of why Jack was on the sub, if he was not planning on leaving the island?

I also think the bomb would not have exploded if the wires were not tampered with, but then again, you would have had Jack leaving the island. ? ?? ? ??

Jack went on the sub because Kate got shot. He carried her in.

No way the bomb goes off if Sawyer's not a ****ing moron.

Also, no way I'm buying that Frank's dead until I see a body.

Franks been dead weight all season long, I don't know why they'd bring him back to be dead weight for even longer.

But with the Sub out of the picture, and the Planes status in limbo, where does that leave everybody who is left. . . Jack isn't going anywhere.. I know Kate and Sawyer want to leave, but I don't know if that's going to happen anymore.

But they did leave the plane unharmed, so that leaves the door open for an escape, yet.

No one's commented on Locke's injury yet. That had a pretty intense story behind it!

Dammit Lucas! We were having a very nice parallel reality free conversation here!

Well, it's not "bringing him back" if they never planned for him to die on the sub and are instead holding him in reserve.

Yeah, I thought all that was really well done. And it's nice seeing REAL Locke in those scenes. Because there really is a huge difference between that and Smokey.

I think he will still come around though, and I liked how Jack used the line ' I wish you'd believe me.' The flashes are coming together for Locke, but they aren't quite there. Perhaps when HE get reconnected, that could have some bad repercussions for Smokey.


Edit:
I guess, but they'd have to make a big scene of him returning. The only way he could have, is if he woke up from being knocked out when the door hit him, figured out what was going on without checking in with anybody else on the sub, and swam to the surface. It's easier this way, just letting him be dead. I like his character a lot, but i don't see him reappearing.

Don't forget, he has to fly the jet. They haven't spent all season talking about the jet to not have it ever take off. :drool:

Yeah, that's his only saving grace at the moment. But if he washes up on shore and says ' oh hey. .eerr... what happened?' I'm going to be pissed and wish he'd died.

You're ON, Lucas. One week of the avatar of the winner's choice! I win if Frank's alive, you win if he's dead. And I mean dead in the sub explosion and sinking we just saw, so no fair claiming victory if Locke eats Frank's head two weeks from now.

It's new, I was just saying as an example. Locke could eat Frank's head next week for all I know.

Sure Dex, whatever you'd like. But we're waiting until after our first one is resolved to cash it in. So I can make you use something for 2 consecutive weeks, ya know.

Lapidus ain't dead....yet. The LOST creators made damn sure we saw Sun & Jin floating lifelessly in the sub. They're dead. At this point in the game, when someone for sure dies, they're gonna make sure we know it. Since we haven't seen a dead Lapidus, he's gonna turn up again. Also, the plane is still there too, which means lapidus will be seen again.

So who's left??

Jack
Sawyer
Kate
Hurley

Richard Alpert
Ben
Miles

Lapidus

FLocke
Claire

Widmore
Zoe?
Widmore goons?

Desmond

I wish they spread that two and a half hour finale out another week!! Thats a long time to sit in front of the tv~!
Oh and Sawyer was a total tool in this episode.
