Boo, boo and triple boo. What the hell are the producers thinking? We get the annoying newbies in exchange for that horrible character assassination. The episode was decent enough, some interesting happenings except for Benry's laughable lame "plan", it doesn't excuse that hatchet job though.

I thought it was Echo that had the Hatchet?
Well he's dead now anyway which I'm sure was part of the plan all along.
I'm still loving the seamless addition of the two new red shirts though.
Maybe we'll get one of their exciting back stories next week...

Someone on AIC called the red shirts "exposition girl" and "take a **** guy" which was fairly apt!
Suprising no one here has mentioned Nick Fury's apperance on the screen mind you..

There was a glass eye found by Libby back in S2 which must belong to Nick Fury, although I prefer the moniker of Hatch Patch which someone on TWP gave him. Someone there thought he looked like Ron Perlman, which would be all kinds of awesome if true.

The red shirts have only had about 4 lines all season and I already hate them.

Bimbo redshirt: "Maybe you should turn on the other TV's?". Locke: "Of course, how could we be so dumb" WTH?

Is it wrong of me to want them to both to get driving infractions?

Yeah, I can't believe the stupidity when faced by all those tv screens, that was pretty lame for the latest bimbo to suddenly work out the really cryptic message on the video. So it looks like we were all right when they appeared a few weeks back, all shiny white teeth. Speaking of which, I need to watch again, but how come that guy with the eye patch saw them? I thought the video feeds were one-way only? Or is that what Sayid was trying to fix?

Shame to see the big guy bite the dust, but at least we got to see the smoke monster thing again in all its wonderful cgi glory. Not sure about the flashback, I guess he deserved one before being killed as he was a popular character, but it didn't really do anything for me.

And so, is the hot blonde from the others on the level with Jack or is it all a game? Going from what we've seen (which Jack hasn't obviously) I'm guessing she might be telling the truth in so much as some of the others want rid of Ben.

What a pointless episode. Why the hell would they devote several episodes to the guys back story just to kill him off in a pointless twist to the story line. He was shaping up to be one of the best characters. I wonder if their will be an unexplained ressurection later on or if that is it for Eko.

There was about 5 minutes of story line progression here and the rest was a waste. There really is too much filler and not enough killer in LOST. How far has the story moved in the last 5 episodes? We've learnt not a lot and it has all been sloooowwweeeddd down for the Christmas break in scheduling. Next week and then nothing until feb. I bet the story line moves more in the two episodes after the Christmas break than it has in the first 5 if this season.

And sadly, does anybody really care anymore?

No point in ranting about what a bad turn the show took with this episode. Xenomorph already summed it up with a

Why has it taken a bad turn just because they killed a character off.
Surely it's better that way as no one is safe.
Yet again people jump to the conclusion that the makers just did it for the sake of doing it.I'm sure they have an idea where they are going with the plot and Eko's death I assume was part of it.
Don't watch it if you don't like it.Use the 40+ minutes to do something you do like.

does patch guy control the "security system" ? and is that why the big guy took his leave

I don't buy the blonde's "we don't like Benry" story they are really trying to screw Jack's mind just so he does it, can't see him killing Benry for what's happened tbh

Didn't it confirm that the smoke monster was impersonating the dead people (eko's brother at least) which explains Walt/Jacks Dad (possibly Dave ?) as well

The behaviour of the smoke monster was also much more aggressive - and fitted in with pilots death more

the only really irritating thing about this season for me, is the red shirts. I'm dreading the inevitable flashback for them, unless of course the female red shirt had a previous life as an underwear model.

sad that ekko's gone, as he was for me one of the most interesting characters in the show.

Great episode. Loving the situation Jack finds himself in. Is blondie making her move for the leadership of the others? Or is it all a test to see if Jack would kill them given the chance? I'm leaning towards a test, and being the nice honest doctor guy Jack is, there's little chance he will agree to it.

Can't believe Eko's dead. Gutted. It's like Oz all over again ;(

I'd put money on it that Benry was holding the video camera. They're messing with his head, just like Benry said they are trying to break him, build him up knock him down, thats how it works. Its exactly what has been happening with Sawyer and Kate.

Yes, I think Ben does know or will find out. But then what can he do? Have the guys ready to kill Jack if he dies in surgery? Maybe the twist is that the woman is genuine. Remember how Ben seemed hacked off about the book club back at the start of season 3, maybe they are fed up with him?
