EW stuff is up: Teaser (here); Review (here); Totally Lost (here).
NIEL started us off this week:
John Locke: So how did it go down there?
Ben: It let me live, I have a small favor to ask of you exalted one. Could we stop by my old house, I need a change of pants.
WOW, that was the best episode of the season last night, but it went by so fast. So what happened to the whole "If I take him he will not remember anything" or is it he just will not remember being shot by the crazy Iraqi terrorist in the jungle? And we see Ben shows his soft side, he won't kill Danille, the baby or Penny. But Caesar, yeah he had it coming acting all big and bad and he is the leader, blah blah. The smoke monster and the Anubis the four toed statue, Widmore was banished for sneaking off and having a child off island. And finally Locke is old Locke again and not a sniveling pansy.
Oh yeah, "what lies in the shadow of the statue" ?
KELLY responded with some good tidbits she found on Lostpedia:
....interesting translations of the hieroglyphics
Ben's secret door
Roughly translated, then, they appear to read "to summon protection...".
The boarding pass featured on ajirairways.com has hieroglyphs in semi-transparency in the corners and along the top and bottom which producer Damon Lindelof translated to mean "underworld".
