Only one more episode to go this season.. Sad  
 
Ok, somewhere I read something about a force field on the island (speculation), and after last night am wondering if that could be the case... seemed the further out away from camp Locke got, the worse his legs got... like being at the camp is what caused him to no longer need the wheel chair....  
 
Also, speculation wise.. the fact that it ended with Locke sitting in the car pounding the steering wheel in frustration made me wonder if the accident that put him in the wheel chair has something to do with this, maybe an automobile accident because he's so upset...??  
 
All in all, a fairly decent episode.. and next week - the baby comes Cool Cool Cool
 
TV Trivia moment: Dad was Kevin Tighe from Adam-12 fame..

I can't believe that Boone died!  Don't get me wrong.... I knew that one of the main characters was going to die.  I just thought they'd throw a twist in and not take out the obvious character.  (Plus, I'm going to miss those beautiful blue eyes!)

Yes, Boone will be missed.  Maybe we'll see him next fall in a lead role somewhere in TV Land!
 
LOST needs to find themselves and pick it up a pace or three or it is going to start loosing viewers.  The two of us for two!
 
It became boring and slow.  We like stories that move a bit faster and stay with the story.  This one went back WAY too much.  I know, I know, so we would know their lives before the crash.  Now it's time to get with it with this show or others may loose interest also!
 
We'll give it a try next season for one or two shows, but will not stay with it if it drags as it has this past one.

My wife is with you Luci. She said she is bored with it and has stopped watching.
 
I still like it but I can see where you are coming from. You have to wonder how a pregnant woman escaped and made it back to them (maybe it will be filled in later but for now it is just a huge plot hole).
 
I liked Boone but I think he was probably the most expendable of the main characters.
 
I really expected Jack to tell his bride he could not go through with the wedding. Good to see him happy at one point in his life. Makes you wonder if this was before he ratted out his Dad and they fell apart or if it was after it and his Dad showed up. Personally I think it was before that whole mess.
 
Next week will be the last new episode for a loooong time. Hopefully they give us something to tide us over until it picks up again. Maybe they will make it a Summer series so we don't have to wait until the Fall.

'Lost' Writer Tells All ... or Not
(Thursday, April 07 06:02 PM)
By Kate O'Hare  
 
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) "What else can I tell you that I can't tell you?" says Javier Grillo-Marxuach, a writer/supervising producer on ABC's "Lost." "That should be the motto for all interviews about 'Lost.'"
 
For weeks, fans speculated on which of the hit castaway drama's large cast of characters - survivors of the doomed Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, which crashed on a deserted island -- would die, as hinted at by series creators J.J. Abrams ("Alias") and Damon Lindelof.
 
In the Wednesday, April 6 episode, the unlucky soul turned out to be rich-boy Boone (Ian Somerhalder), who succumbed to injuries sustained when the crashed light airplane he was exploring slipped off a cliff edge. Boone and fellow castaway Locke (Terry O'Quinn), a former paraplegic turned island mystic, found the plane, loaded with heroin-stuffed Virgin Mary statues, while following Locke's visions through the jungle.
   
In an e-mail on April 7, Grillo-Marxuach quips, "He's dead? I better start watching that show. We established Boone as Locke's mentee for the very specific story reason of showing Locke as a character who has the capacity to attract others to his peculiar vision of the island. When the time came to test that vision, killing Locke's newfound 'son' figure was a natural place to go. Now Locke is going to have to deal with the consequences of following his vision and how that brings him into a mano-a-mano conflict with Jack over leadership of the island."
 
Jack (Matthew Fox) is a surgeon who has become the survivors' unofficial leader. His fury over losing Boone, and his realization that Locke lied about how Boone was injured, sent him into the jungle declaring that he would talk to Locke about the "murder" of Boone.
 
This plot twist also means that Ian Somerhalder is out of a job on the hottest new show of the year -- although industry trades report he has signed a one-year talent holding deal with ABC and Touchstone Television for a possible series next year.
 
"It's a terrible thing," writes Grillo-Marxuach, "when you have to part ways with an actor you like, who brings his A-game to the show and has given you really fantastic performances. But when you are doing a show like 'Lost,' which demands that you constantly remind the audience of the life-or-death nature of the characters' predicament while crafting a long-term epic narrative, you sadly have to kill people from time to time.
 
"Boone's death serves a long-term dramatic purpose, and we are lucky to have had Ian Somerhalder bring that character to life and, ultimately, give him a memorable send-off that will continue to pay off through the length of the season."
 
In an interview conducted over lunch on March 30, Grillo-Marxuach admits that the passengers did indeed cross paths before getting on the plane, but he will "neither confirm nor deny" that the crash was not exactly accidental.
 
"But the fact that everybody met each other before is something we're really threading into it," he says. It's the eternal question posed by Echo & the Bunnymen, it's fate up against the will. But as long as people ask those questions, we're very happy over at 'Lost' labs. That's what I call it."
 
With his last series, "Jake 2.0," having been axed just before Abrams and Lindelof hired their writing staff, Grillo-Marxuach came in very early in the process in the spring of 2004. He says he and fellow writers Paul Dini, Jennifer Johnson and Christian Taylor, were sent off to start fleshing out the characters.
 
Grillo-Marxuach recalls, "Damon would come in and say, 'Draw three names out of a hat, and that's going to be your character for the next three weeks. You have to develop their backstory.' So we would go create something for the characters, bring it back to the room and workshop the ideas with Damon and J.J. A lot of the backstories actually developed out of those sessions.
 
"Jack's backstory pretty much survived intact from what we first talked about in there. Hurley's changed a little bit. Sawyer's is very similar. Sun and Jin were born out of an idea that J.J. pitched and we developed. So a lot of the long-running strands of the show were born during those six weeks."
 
On "Alias," many fans track Abrams' use of the number 47, which recurs in the episodes. On "Lost," it's a different equation.
 
The number to watch on 'Lost' is not 47, it's 23," Grillo-Marxuach says. "Oh, yeah, and we've got 815, but 23 is also a very important number in the mythology of 'Lost.'"
 
During the whirlwind casting, many things changed, including rock-star Charlie morphing from middle-aged to mid-20s when Dominic Monaghan was hired. Sometimes, though, casting didn't change the character. That's the case with Vincent, the golden Labrador retriever belonging to boy Walt (Malcolm David Kelley).
 
"The dog's a girl," says Grillo-Marxuach. "I think that's probably the best-kept secret of 'Lost.' Lassie was a boy, and we're following in the great tradition of canine transgendering in television."
 
While Lassie's long coat hid the fact that she was a he, it's a bit harder to conceal what a dog has -- or doesn't have -- if it has a short coat.
 
"Yes," Grillo-Marxuach says, "and yet somehow we've managed."  
 
Other mysteries include the polar bear from the pilot (explained, more or less, as a manifestation of Walt's powerful imagination), the unseen horror that tramps through the jungle, occasional appearances by the island's other human residents, and the buried hatch found by Locke, which appears lit from within.
 
"Everything is going to have a rational explanation and a sci-fi explanation," Grillo-Marxuach says, "until we decide to tell you exactly what that is. That's what's going to help us walk that tightrope for however many years the show has.
 
"The show will end when we tell you what the island is. On the day we say, 'The island is on the back of a cosmic turtle,' then you'll say, 'OK, done with that.'"

No way I'm getting bored... I'm totally obsessed, not only do I watch it, but I record it and watch it over and over looking for clues I missed the first time.. it's like this giant mystery that I'm determined to solve before they tell me what it is... one of the best shows on television, and the BEST for making you think!

Yep, I started recording them and replaying them about 5 weeks into it.. wish I had them all on video.  The whole show is like a giant puzzle - there are clues and messages in every little nuance of the show.  And now, there are starting to be links between the characters - like Locke working at Hurley's box factory, and Sawyer meeting Jack's dad before he died and talking about Jack.  There is some significance to the series of numbers, just no one seems to be able to figure that one out yet.  And even the writers and producers have said that there is hidden meaning in the names of all the characters... I LOVE it... and the whispers... if you listen, you can hear them in places - the ones Sayid heard in the woods.  Sawyer heard them also, and there were some in the Hurley/Lotto episode.  I am totally obsessed with this show.
