Let's Start With Doc Jensen's EW Article.
Also, JJ Started Today's discussion:
good morning everyone.
i will not have time to really participate much today, but want to get things started with some questions for everyone to kick around.
Has Sayid always worked for Benry? The master of lies and the master of detecting lies working together is brilliant... how long has it been like this? do all of the O'6 work for Benry or just Sayid. or maybe just Sayid and Kate? hmmm. And I'm sure the "Economist" is the creepy black dude.
What is up with Sayid being so weepy? from not wanting to torture anymore on the island he has become a killer off the island. another worse future for a Lostie post-island. he obviously is not happy with his new life, even though at first it seemed he was (on the golf course - how odd did that look!?!?!)
Why could Sayid not tell that Hurley was lying? to my knowledge this is the first time i can think of that Sayid was not able to detect a person lying. was it merely because it was Hurley and no one would have ever suspected Hurley to do all Benry on anyone?
Really liked the exchange of Locke, Ben, Sawyer, and Hurley at the location of Jacob's shack and Benry saying Locke needs to be told what to do... In season 1, Locke always said, "don't tell me what i can't do!" to everyone. now he has to be told what TO do or he is L O S T. interesting. There was some symbolism going on in this scene that i thought was too obvious, but if you haven't figured it out, i won't spell it out for you....
the time lag that Daniel found was very very interesting. it wasn't much, but if you think about it and do the math, i bet the time lag turns out to be a huge explanation of many things we have been theorizing about. especially Taller Ghost Walt. perhaps that little bit of time discrepancy added up over how many days the Losties have been on the island will pose a huge storyline development on how long they have really been there - creating part of the reason for the cover up!
Was pondering the idea of Sayid working for Benry and what that could mean. What if Michael also works for Benry, as does Sawyer and a few others... and ALL THIS TIME, they have been working for Benry, taking out Losties and "Others" on purpose that Benry knows are a threat or not on a LIST. what if Walt has always been Jacob from the start, his flashback a ruse, and Michael has been one of Benry's men all along, serving Jacob and manipulating the whole group, especially Locke. this could go many, many different ways... it may be nothing at all and i'm totally wrong. we shall see....
