I looked at last night epi as a throw away episode. It added nothing to the ongoing story line. Now if Paulo and Nikki somehow survive being buried alive and get out of the grave, then it might mean something, but if they are really dead, then what was the purpose of the episode last night????
It was just one long flashback.
Paulo and Nikkie have never been major characters except when they went with Eko and Locke to find the hatch with the TVs.
As Sawyer said last night, Who the hell is Nikkie???
I don't know about this one. Deadly spiders, a diamond heist and randomly expendable "extras" being buried alive? I know that the ratings are down but, this seems kind of goofy to me. I was just starting to really dig it again.Hopefully they'll get back on track next week. Maybe it will all work out later but, for now....i'm pretty bummed.
WOW. Great episode. Locke's gone now. I wonder if the next time we see him he'll be like Marlon Brando's character in Apocalypse Now
Everytime they have a sh!tty episode, like last week's, they always come back with something solid. It just amazes me the layer upon layers of connections that they keep laying. I've gotta say that I'm surprised that they didn't take Jack, cause I was kinda thinking that he's gotta be on their "list". I guess not. Or he could be if Juliette is actually sent to be a spy, which I'm thinking she is. Sayid is rarely wrong and he doesn't trust her. I don't like that there's gonna be all the drama with the Juliette/Jack/Kate love triangle thing going on in the last episodes. What's a boy to do? 3 some Jack. 3 some
Other random thoughts......Sawyer's got a kid. I'm certain now that Dharma = Karma and that they are the equalizer in the world to a certain extent. That amongst many OTHER things. The smoke monster rules. And so does Kate. She can kick my ass anytime
yeah she's obviously lying and manipulating Jack. I mean she had the key on her the whole time with Kate. She's a liar, and I bet this is the deal she made with Ben to even things out for her earlier betrayal.

Sayid is the smartest one on the island, he is definately gonna hurt Juliette a little. I hate that lady, she is so smug and i was glad Kate kicker her ass, even though kate is a lying lamer herself. I am soooo hoping that next episode shows what locke is gonna do to tied-up daddy. Is it just another type of manifestation or do you guys think its his real dad? man oh man, any tall buildings on the island? sure would like to see some locke revenge.
I'm very intrigued about this "list" The Others have. Locke's on the list and I think Jack is too. They want both of them. Jack seems to like to play along though, and I don't think he has any intention of "joining" them, but Juliette is his weak spot. I think Juliette is definitely spying for them, and she's gonna use Jack and his clout, to make Kate and Sayid seem crazy for not trusting Juliette. They are a clever bunch, those bastards.

There's more to Juliette than we know so far. Remember how she took out Kate with the pool cue? How does a lab doc get super-human reflexes like that??
Smoke monster.... my guess is that has something to do with the original Dharma project members... maybe some sort of psychic gestalt gone crazy... when it hit that fence last night, anyone else get flashbacks of Forbidden Planet?
Remember Ben telling Locke that there's a box where, whatever you desire to be there it will be. Not sure if that's what that was or if they actually have his dad.
I believe that is exactly what it is. Love the new pic too Dan.
Thanks. I try my best to be on the cutting edge of all things cool and happenin'
Yes, and from what I've heard, the writers have the end written all ready. So they do know where they're going, they just don't want to get there too quickly. Which explains why we get so many "throw away" episodes. I'm guessing 2 or 3 more seasons after this one. I think they can do 3 more. Any more than that, and it may go downhill pretty fast.
Thanks, I thought I heard that the end was written. I just couldn't imagine them ending it this season. Plus I am HOOKED on the show. I don't like any interruptions for that hour. I usually let the answer machine pick up, etc. Glad to hear it won't end this year.
