All preposterous (sp?)!

Locke overdid the halluciogenic stuff and all is just part of his trip......or maybe Jack is taking a shower after dreaming all night as in Dallas.

Excellent ep! I dont know what all this nagging is about Ecko's back story. As someone already said, it served a purpose. Its unveiled more of the 'monsters' characteristics. We now know that it is trying to manipulate the islanders for some reason. Its a security system but what is it protecting/who do certain people pose as a threat?

Also nick fury in the hatch. Maybe benry knows he has cancer but it will not spread further/he will die from it because of the islands properties? Just a test of trust in the others?! I think that Ben MAY be the good guy in the others too and Juliette just wants him out for her own reaons.

About the Smoke, Rousseau called it the Security System in Season 1 and wasn't there a reference on the UV blast door map to a "catastrophic malfunction with the Cerberus system"? Cerberus being the 3 headed dog that guarded the gates to Hades, think the assumption was that Cerberus was the security system/smoke?
So if smoke = Cerberus, maybe it's now acting independently and not as Dharma intended. We've seen it knows about individuals' past (face to face with Ekko, there were flashes in the smoke that showed him as a boy, in Africa, etc). Either it gets the info from the same place the others were getting their info, or maybe it's the source of the others' info . Maybe it's got a bit of a God-complex, knowing the Losties have all done something bad in their past, it's giving them the opportunity to repent and in the case of Ekko, he refused and it killed him.

re. Benry's tumour, you find out a spinal surgeon falls from the sky, do you introduce yourself and ask for help, or do you wage psychological warfare on him and his fellow survivors until you break him and he operates willingly

Am I right in thinking that Bernard is the only tail-ender left alive? And even he's not been around for a while.

We don't know if the people the others took on the tallies 1st and second night are dead, I would assume not, as some were kids..

Plus the air-hostess they took who was travelling with ana lucia and co to the main people's camp.

If Ben and Jules are in league with each other, why did he get so annoyed at her for showing Jack the x-rays. He dissed her for that out of Jacks earshot didn't he?

Perhaps she messed up his personal agenda? They both seem to be playing each other whilst working together in some respects.

Anyway, she didn't show Jack the x-rays - he noticed them which may or may not have been intentional.

Go on, I'll be here in a few days when you get back But if it's there when Walt talks backwards, and when Jack's dad appears, I think it's safe to say they're smoke monster.

Is there any suggestion that The Others are injecting themself with the vaccine? Also, I assume the vaccine on the island is the same one being delivered to Eko's village in Nigeria? I can't remember the details on that one, I don't remember if the nature of that vaccine was ever discussed.

I just realised that Juliette must be telling the truth. If they were trying to test Jack, would Ben want Jack to kill him? What'd be the point in that?

Who is the "good man" of the two of them?

It's also pretty clear now that no matter how close you are to an imploding hatch, it's probably not going to kill you.
Locke's episode was just a clunky way for the writers to bring back good old hunter/mystical Locke from season 1, nothing more

If im to see a parallel between Eko's story and Jack's dilemma then I have to believe that Jack's dilemma is real and if I believe that,then for reasons I have stated above, the show really will have become absurd.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying the show but the standards do seem to have slipped so far this season with regards the story and the way characters are behaving, this 6 ep mini season just feels like a wasted opportunity but hopefully this weeks cliffhanger will blow me away and leave me wanting more.

Im worried it's Alias all over again... so by that estimate we have the end of this season until it falls apart.

The guy that killed lots of people and refused to repent in the end is a great man?

Season sucks so far...
