LOST Season 5 Episode 2 SPOILERS!

Great episode again, with a classic Anna Lucia cameo.
Who knows where the show's going?
As long as the series doesn't turn into Prison Break I'll be happy anyway.
Who is the new character skulking around her basement?
Did I miss a major revelation when she turned round.
She wasn't Desmond's old woman was she?

It did look as though we were supposed to know who she was but I have no idea. Two very strong episodes.

I know most people love to moan and bitch about this show but I have to say the last season and this one so far have really stepped up a gear and brought us something very special. The only downside of it is you just know there will never be any explanation for all of this.

And Jim for Neighbors has gone all gangster rapper as he is upset that Sun disrespected him had to laugh at that.

The white haired woman is from the Desmond time travel episodes I think. Not certain but doesnt he meet her in the pub, or after being in the pub watching thr game of football where he knows what will happen. Pretty sure she meets up with Desmond and warns him about the dangers of time travel or something.

That seems to ring a bell now that you mention it. This will be one of those shows that will reward on a second viewing the whole way through.

Yep she is from the Desmond episodes and so with the reveal about Desmond at the end of the first episode there are signs that this is starting to fall into place.

Was it the basement of a church that she was skulking about in, with her "hi-tech" computers and massive pendulums? Might be how she knows Desmond's monks (picture on the desk), obviously something religious about her.

I hope the time travel malarkey means they can bring Shannon back from the dead!

How do you think they're going to get Hurley out?!

The swings of the pendulum was marking something on a map on the floor. Probably the location of the island.

Think this link might come in handy going forward.

Gotta love the red-shirt moment ... "We can't even make Fire.....YOWCHHH!!"

Island stuff still remains nuttier than a Snickers bar although the Anna Lucia moment back in the "real" world was another WTF moment.

Ben is still fantastic. Even when he's being good, you so just cant trust him as far as you can throw Hurley.

Vastly entertaining but I hope they calm the craziness down a notch.

There's a good interview with the actor who plays Ben on the Lostpedia.

Yeah you could tell he was going to get whacked in some way as soon as he stood up prominently and started ranting ... red-shirt-tastic.

Same with Said playing tranquilised and then getting up with the frying pan - nicely done, but could see it coming

One thing I'm not sure about yet ... given that Richard and Locke were on separate timelines and met / "unmet" a couple of times, even though they were right next to each other and talking ... does that mean which timeline you're on depends upon which "group" you're in and more likely when you actually arrived on the island ... now if that's true how come Juliet, Charlotte, Daniel, Miles etc all stayed together with Sawyer and the rest of the Losties? Especially Daniel who we saw had been on the island much earlier (when they were building stuff), so how come he (and perhaps Miles etc) weren't coming and going out of sync with the plane Losties?

"I believe you. I don't understand you, but I believe you"

The whole story so far of Lost sounded so delightfully stupid when recounted by Hurley to his mum.

Just a marvellous comedy episode - Cheech Marin on top form too. So pleased this is back and really enjoying the complexities of the plot weaving in and out of previous episodes. They really have planned this well (so far), and i'm especially pleased that they've maintained the "you can't change history as it will course correct itself" concept which will stop ludicrous Back To The Future/Heroes style paradoxes.

Certainly all the Slaughterhouse 5-esque time jumping puts Desmond's previous "flashes" into context a bit better, and Mama Caffee from Brotherhood (presumably she's Faraday''s mum?) popping up again just blew my tiny mind a little bit.

I love Lost.

Aye, it was great. Like at the start of one season of Friends where Joey was doing the recap, but he had no idea of what had happened.

How does that work with Desmond not remembering Daniel then, from either Oxford or when he met him in the hatch? We know Daniel remembered it as he had 'Desmond Hume is my constant' in his journal.

Good call. Never even considered that she could be who Daniel wanted Desmond to contact. If he meets her, will he look at her all large-eyed and go 'Aaah nooo yooo', like he did with Charlie? But then, if he does meet ther then that means he'll contact Ben, who wants to kill Penny.

Exactly....

Well i just presumed that Desmond's mind had blocked it out in one way or another - he had a rather strange few years remember, being washed up on an island and all. And it makes sense that Daniel was the only person that could get Desmond to answer the hatch door and talk to him as he was the only one who had (in some way) met Desmond before, maintaining the (now slightly bendy) time thread...

Oh, and surely I can't be the only one thinking that the soldiers that Juliet and Sawyer met may be part of the team from Rousseau's boat?

And how does Locke randomly killing people not effect the space/time continueum?

They had Dharma uniforms on, so who who knows.

This is still the greatest ******* television show ever.
