Lost: The 23rd Psalm
(Spoiler warning: Don't look up)
OK, with that out of the way, let's talk tonight's Lost. Once again we're left with more questions than answers, though overall I'd say this was a good episode. Not great, but good. revelations about Eko, Charlie, the "monster" and ... Walt, maybe?
Actually, I take that back ... there's really not a whole lot revealed about the monster in this episode; that's
actually where there are more questions. Though I do have to say things are pointing toward the nanotech theory a lot
more now. The mist seemed to read Eko's mind, possibly drawing out what he fears (or doesn't fear). There were
definitely images related to Eko flashing in there, and I did my best to capture them (sorry they're not all that large
and a bit dark):
Eko's first encounter with the mist, as they just stare at each other.
Definitely a church, on the right. The steeple is very clear.
Possibly Eko's brother, on the left. There's clearly a priest outfit happening there.
Eko holding his dead brother at the plane?
This one wasn't so clear to me, but it was definitely one of the flashes.
This is another one I can't quite make out.
Definitely a person, probably a woman, dead center. Virgin Mary statue?
A plane crashing?
Not sure with this one.
Anyway, our very own Ryan will likely let you know what each of these really is in the Lost Podcast coming up tomorrow.
As far as the rest of the show, I'm thinking that's not Walt on the computer at all. Someone's luring Michael from the group, and the fact that he was asked if he was alone was a good indication of that. But where is it telling him to go?
Then of course there's Charlie, who surprisingly has been storing a LOT of those Mary statues. But why? Can someone who's seemingly kicked a nasty habit be able to restrain themselves from using when it's all right there for the taking, or has Charlie been using all this time?
What about the Nigerian plane? How could it have gotten out into the Pacific? Could it be a Bermuda-Triangle effect going on, some sort of dimensional weirdness? Or are the people on this island not where they think they are?
Let's hear your thoughts!
