"Some Like It Hoth" Discussion

[Listen to this episode!] [Subscribe to the MP3 feed via iTunes]

the JoshMeister, Congested, and fellow LOST fans discuss Season 5 Episode 13, "Some Like It Hoth", and take a look at what we might see in episode 14, "The Variable".

Rehashing with Congested:
  • Discussion about Bram and Ilana having their own faction
    • DHARMA reconstituted, per Pierre Chang in the Comic-Con 2008 video
    • Another faction of The Others? Or the same group?

  • Congested: In Empire Strikes Back, Luke talks to dead Obi-Wan (he notes a similarity with LOST)
Season 5 Episode 13 "Some Like It Hoth" (Miles-centric) notes:
  • Flashback
    • Miles had his ability to hear dead people's thoughts as a child

  • 1977
    • They do have video surveillance tapes after all
      • Sawyer orders Miles to erase the security tapes
      • Yet again, they have this conversation over the radio, so anyone could be listening in
    • Horace tells Miles that Radzinsky is in Grid 3-3-4, which Miles says is Hostile territory
    • Horace orders Miles to go there and make an exchange with Radzinsky
    • The item turns out to be a body bag, and Radzinsky whistles and two men bring out a dead body and put it in the bag
    • Miles: "What happened to him?"
    • Radzinsky: "He had an accident... he fell into a ditch."
    • Miles notices a bullet hole in the dead man's head
    • After Radzinsky leaves, Miles asks the dead man, "Okay, so what really happened?"

  • Flashback
    • Miles goes to see his mom, who is dying
    • Miles asks him mom how he has his power
    • His mom tells him that his dad has been dead a long time
    • Miles asks where his body is, and she says "somewhere you can never go"
      • Dr. Pierre Chang must be Miles' father!

  • 1977
    • In the very next scene, Horace orders Miles to take the body to Dr. Chang at The Orchid

    • Roger sees that Ben is gone and panics, saying he's going to security

    • Name's Alvarez
    • Digging hole, thinking about Andrea
    • The man was shot in head
    • Hurley finds out that Miles can talk to dead people
    • Hurley to Miles: "Don't worry, dude. Youre secret's safe with me. You wanna know why? Cause I can talk with them, too."

  • Flashback
    • Mr. Gray hires Miles to talk to his dead son, Miles says he can't do it given the circumstances (something about the body being scattered around a large area) but he fakes it anyway for the money

    • Naomi Doritt introduces herself to Miles

  • 1977
    • Hurley: "You're just jealous my powers are better than yours."

    • Miles: "That douche is my dad."
      • How did he know that Pierre Chang is his father? (We find out later.)

  • Flashback
    • Naomi takes Miles to the body of Felix

    • Felix was on his way to deliver something to a guy named Widmore, papers, photos, pictures of empty graves, a purchase order for an old airplane
      • That's what Tom showed Michael!
      • This confirms that Widmore sent the plane to the bottom ocean with the dead bodies
    • Naomi: "My employer is willing to pay you $1.6 million"
      • This must be why Miles asked Ben for $3.2 million (as confirmed on the latest Official LOST Podcast)

  • 1977
    • Miles says his third day in DHARMAville, his mother was in line behind him

    • Jack takes Roger's shift, Roger shows up and is mad at him
    • "I should go to Horace, report her [Kate]. What do you think?"

    • Pierre Chang pushes open a gate covered in foliage
    • Hurley and Miles see workers hammering the numbers (4 8 15 16 23 42) into the Swan hatch lid, and one worker calls it a serial number
      • Hurley: "They're building our hatch. The one that crashed our plane."

  • Flashback
    • Bram kidnaps Miles
      • He's the same guy who's on Ilana's side after the Ajira crash
    • Bram: "He have to try our best to talk you out of working for Charles Widmore"
    • Bram: "Do you know what lies in the shadow of the statue? Then you're not ready to go to the Island."
    • Bram: "You're playing for the wrong team."
    • Miles: "Oh yeah? What team are you on?"
    • Bram: "The one that's going to win."
      • Who does Bram work for? Ben? DHARMA? Someone else? He definitely doesn't work for Charles Widmore.

  • 1977
    • Hurley is writing The Empire Strikes Back "with a couple improvements" to sell to George Lucas

    • Phil, a DHARMA security guy, pulls out a tape and tells Sawyer he knows that Jim is the one who took Ben
    • Sawyer punches him in the face and tells Juliet to get some rope
      • TheMissingToe: "bad move on Sawyer's part - he's a smarter con man than that"

  • Flashback
    • Miles returns money to Mr. Gray and tells him that he didn't talk to his son

  • 1977
    • Miles sees Pierre Chang reading to his son
      • LeFransay: "so there's no danger in Old Miles approaching young Miles?"

    • Scientists from Ann Arbor are coming in on a sub
      • Could Gerald and Karen De Groot be on the sub?
        • Dan Faraday is on the sub!
          • How is that possible? He was on the Island when they first traveled back in time. When did he leave the Island?
            • Steve from The Smoke Hatch mentioned after we recorded the podcast that he left on the sub that Horace mentioned would be coming in 2 weeks
          • The scene from the first episode of the season must not have happened yet

  • Steve from The Smoke Hatch pointed out after the podcast that Ben would have had to raise Alex for 4 years if he took Alex in 1988 (the Purge took place in 1992):
    http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Pre-crash_timeline
    • The year of the Purge being 1992 is based on Horace's comment to Locke in a dream in the episode Cabin Fever that he's been dead for 12 years, and we saw him dead after the Purge: http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Cabin_Fever

  • Screenshots and Easter Eggs:
    • Heiroglyphics and information about ancient Egypt on the chalk board at the DHARMA school where Jack and Roger were cleaning
    • Screenshots of Bram in this episode and on the beach
SPOILERS:
  • Preview for the next episode:
    • Announcer: "Sides will be chosen"
    • Hurley and Jin standing next to each other
    • Sawyer: "This is our home. Come with us, Freckles."
    • "Some will run for cover. Some will stay and fight."
    • Radzinsky
    • Jack firing a gun
    • Announcer: "explosive 100th episode"
    • Daniel Faraday: "Any one of us could die, Jack."
  • From SpoilerFix (WARNING: don't click this link unless you want to risk being majorly spoiled!)
    • Episode 14: The Variable (Daniel Faraday-centric)
      • Congested thinks (and the latest Official LOST Podcast seems to confirm) that the title has reference to the episode The Constant
      • Josh points out that "the variable" could also have to do with the DHARMA Initiative's purpose of using the Numbers to predict and prevent the end of the world, as revealed in The LOST Experience, the first official LOST ARG, as I've mentioned previously (see Sri Lanka Video on Lostpedia)

"Dead Is Dead" Discussion

[Listen to this episode!] [Subscribe to the MP3 feed via iTunes]

the JoshMeister and fellow LOST fans discuss Season 5 Episode 12, "Dead Is Dead", and take a look at what we might see in episode 13, "Some Like It Hoth".

The Official LOST Podcast - Non-spoiler notes:
  • The fan-named shocking season finale scene is officially being dubbed "The Fork in the Outlet" (not a spoiler since it was named and voted on by fans)
Season 5 Episode 12 "Dead Is Dead" notes:
  • 1977
    • Charles Widmore: "You brought one of them to the temple."
    • Richard: "Jacob wanted it to be done. The Island chooses who it wants."

    • Charles to Ben: "You should be dead, Benjamin. But this island, it saved your life."

  • Present
    • Ben: "I knew it! I knew that this would happen."
      • TheMissingToe: "I don't thing Ben thought Locke would resurrect. He was using Locke to get everyone back and thought he could take his place again as leader and gain favor again with the island"
    • Ben: "I broke the rules, John. I came back to the island. I was going back to answer for what I'd done. I was going back to be judged."
    • John Locke: "By whom?"
    • Ben: "John, we don't even have a word for it. But I believe you call it the monster."
      • What the monster is: a judge

    • Ben tries to turn Caesar on John, says he didn't kill him and didn't see him on the plane, says maybe John was on the Island all the time and might be deranged

  • Flashback
    • "Shut up and stay here, Ethan"
    • Danielle Rousseau's tent on the beach
    • Ben steals Alex
    • Ben says he'll kill Danielle if she follows him
    • Ben: "If you want your child to live, every time you hear whispers, you run away."
      • Lostgeek108: "Why does he warn her about the whispers?"
        • Maybe just to get her to keep herself alive so he won't feel so bad about taking her daughter
        • TheMissingToe: "I think the whispers can hold a lot of answers to those on the island - if they follow them or something - and he wants her to stay completely away"
        • Guest 13: "always thought the whispers represented the monster and ben wants her to stay away from it to be safe"
      • Why did Ben steal Alex in the first place? Why not leave her with Danielle if he was going to let Danielle live?
        • TheMissingToe: "Perhaps this was Ben's big "test" with the hostiles and, like Locke was initially, he couldn't kill (at that point) - Plus the baby provides Ben with his first chance at undermining Charles in front of the hostiles - his long term plan being to become the leader"
    • Timeline hint: danno@large: "Danielle arrives on the Island before the purge: 1988. The purge occurs in 1992, according to lostpedia"
      • In or after 1992 because Ben is living amongst the Others - Ethan would have been about 15
        • How did Ethan become an Other?

  • Present
    • Locke and Ben prepare to take a boat, Caesar comes over and Ben indicated that it was Locke's idea, and Caesar reaches for his shotgun to try to threaten Locke with it
    • Ben, who apparently had stolen the gun from Caesar, shoots Caesar in the chest and gives the gun to Locke, saying "Consider that my apology."
      • James721: "Ben had to kill Ceasar because Ceasar might have told Locke about their earlier conversation"

    • Sun and Lapidus' boat were there

    • Ben: "No, someone else hurt my arm."
      • Desmond, presumably
    • The only place Ben can summon the monster is from his old house
    • Locke theorizes that Ben really wants to be judged for "killing his daughter"

  • Flashback
    • Charles Widmore is the boss on the Island among The Others
    • He had given Ben orders to kill Rousseau and didn't tell Ben about the baby
    • Charles orders Ben to kill baby Alex, but Ben refuses

  • Present
    • Ghostly image passes Alex's room
    • Ben enters house, Sun and Frank Lapidus are there
    • Ben pretends not to know about her friends having been in the DHARMA Initiative
      • Surely he remembered; he lived among them, and the photo would have been there at the barracks ever since the Others took over
    • Sun: Christian "said if I ever wanted to see my husband again, I'd wait here for John Locke"
    • Frank goes back to the plane to try to fix the radio
    • Sun stays and wants John to help her find Jin
    • To supposedly summon the monster, Ben goes in secret passageway, crawls through tunnel, puts hand in murky water, it drains

  • Flashback
    • Charles had a daughter with an outsider, so he has to leave the Island on a sub - we don't know who's Penny's mother
    • Ben takes over Charles' leadership role
      • Why was Ben next in line?
    • TheMissingToe: "Was Widmore branded after his banishment judgment?" (like Juliet)

  • Present
    • Ben to Sun: "Dead is dead. You don't get to come back. So the fact that John Locke is walking around this island scares the living hell out of me."
    • Ben: "The thing that's about to come out of that jungle, I can't control" and then Locke walks out =)
    • Ben: "I don't know where it actually is"
    • Locke: "I do."

  • Flashback to 2007
    • Ben called Charles to gloat: "I'm going back to the Island today" and says he's going to kill Penny first.
    • Boat: "Our Mutual Friend"
      • Name of the book Desmond was planning to read before he died

  • Present
    • Ben and Locke's roles are reversed - John knows where he's going, Ben doesn't
    • It's the wall around our temple - half mile away
      • icebird: "so that means we technically haven't seen the Temple yet then I guess..."
    • Locke: "We're not going in your temple, Ben. We're going under it."
      • Interestingly, Locke says "your temple," speaking as an outsider rather than as one of The Others, even though he's supposed to be their leader now
    • How does Locke know where to find the monster?
      • TheMissingToe: "I think the island is pulling Locke where he needs to go - like Walt pulling the birds into the window"
      • Locke was once pulled partway into a Cerberus vent, but not the one by the temple
    • Ben to Sun: "If you ever get off the Island again, find Desmond Hume and tell him I was sorry."
    • Sun: "Sorry for what?"
    • Ben: "He'll know."

  • Flashback to 2007:
    • Ben shoots Desmond through a grocery bag that Desmond was holding
      • Did the bullet actually hit Desmond? It didn't look like it.
    • Ben planned to shoot Penny, but her daughter Charlie came out of the boat and Ben lowered his gun -- just in time for Desmond to tackle Ben and beat the heck out of him
      • Desmond drops Ben into the water and he begins sinking face-down, and this is the last we see of Ben from this flashback
      • Did Ben go back and kill Penny? Perhaps not -- he didn't kill Danielle because she had a daughter, so maybe Ben didn't kill Penny out of compassion because she had a son
        • james721: "Ben CANT kill a mommy because he was denied his own mother's life since birth"
        • TheMissingToe: "although Ben helped kill many mommies presumably during The Purge"
        • diesel929: "well according to roger ben killed his own mommy"
        • David_Alpert: "think Amy died in Purge? or IS she an Other? (cuz no other mommies)" -- that would explain why Ethan ended up among the Others

  • Present:
    • Survivor: "Ilana and three of the others found guns. They're in charge now."
    • Ilana: "What lies in the shadow of the statue?"
    • Frank doesn't know what she's talking about, so she knocks him out and tells another survivor: "Tie him up. He's coming with us."
      • Was Ilana referring to the four-toed statue? Does Ilana work for Widmore?
      • Lostgeek108: "To me Ben looked very surprised to see Sayid on the plane" -- Ben apparently didn't expect Sayid, but may have assumed the Island made it so Sayid would be there. Perhaps it was actually part of a plot by Widmore to get an agent on the Island. After all, Peter Avellino supposedly worked for Charles Widmore, so it would make sense that Ilana does, as well.
      • David_Alpert: "BEN LIES IN THE SHADOW OF THE STATUE. but its a slam from Widmore on his nemesis. Widmore basically saying Ben has the audacity to lie and claim he has a right to this island in the very shadow of the statue. "How dare you boy!""
      • XsavagistX (Karl): "Frank might know because maybe Alana or whatever is some plant and she didnt know who else were plants along with her"
    • TheMissingToe: "I'm guessing Ilana's mystery box holds equipment to contact Widmore or possibly eqiupment to help Widmore zero in on the island or a portal"
      • Screenshot of the box
      • TheMissingToe: "that big box on the beach they were moving"
      • diesel929: "the big silver one with bamboo shoots tied to it and latches on its side"
      • icebird: "oooh yeah. I completely forgot about that. She was being very protective of that huge metal box. Ben even asked if he could help with that Box before he told lies to Caeser"
      • TheMissingToe: "A great twist would be if the box contained some ancient items that Widmore collected from various auctions"
      • diesel929: "maybe it contains 3.2 million dollars" - the figure Miles asked Ben for
      • TheMissingToe: "ooh - how about some type of detanator for Jughead in the box?"
        • icebird: "I don't think Jughead is controlled by a detonator though. And even if it was, is he really going to detonate an island he wants to go back to?"
    • Ben to John: He had the choice to "either leave the Island or let my daughter die. All I had to do was walk out of the house and go with him. ... So you were right, John. I did kill Alex. And now I have to answer for that."
      • The "him" to which Ben was referring is Keamy

    • Ben falls down into a hole in the cave underneath the temple
    • Lots of hieroglyphics in the cave, one of Anubis talking to the smoke monster? Perhaps Anubis is consulting with the smoke monster to find out what kind of judgment the monster has made about someone
    • Smoke comes up out of vents, comes after Ben, apparently judges him and then goes back into the vents
    • "Alex" appears and says "I know you're planning to kill John Locke. If you try, I will hunt you down and kill you." Then something like "You will obey his every command. Say it! Say you'll follow him!"
    • Ben: "Yes, I'll follow him. I swear."
      • diesel929: "Ben is already working out a plan around that promise"
      • TheMissingToe: "The master is now the servant - I love it"

  • Lostgeek108: "If Penny, Desmond and little Charlie are all fine Do you think that any of them or all of them will return to the Island?"
    • David_Alpert: "Lostgeek - Des is on the way imo. how? no idea."
    • Desmond will want to go back for revenge, and possibly Penny will want to go with him because she doesn't want to be separated from Des again
    • icebird: "I'm sure all of them are going to be involved in the Island. They all seem important. And we'll probably find out why at the end of this season"
    • David_Alpert: "Penny said she would go anywhere with him, right? on the boat in [a] previous episode" -- Lostgeek108: "It was the episode where Desmond was looking for Faraday's mom in Oxford"

  • TheMissingToe: "It would be interesting to see if Miles can read Locke's thoughts like a dead person now"

  • Ben got back to the Island when Charles didn't think it was possible to go back. Maybe Charles will attempt to go back since Ben was successful. He certainly knows how to get in touch with Eloise Hawking because he gave her contact info to Desmond

  • TheMissingToe has a theory that "Smokey could kill as judgment as well as for course correction"

  • TheMissingToe: "one other thing - in the temple on one of the pillars, it looks like hieroglyphs for the Exodus"

  • Other Screenshots / Easter Eggs:
    • Ben's Judgment posted by AstroJones on Sledgeweb: "Unlike Eko, who felt no shame for his sins, Ben weeps at his mistake in causing Alex's death. Makes one wonder just what the Pilot's sins were for the killin' he got."
      • diesel929: "he needed to repent for hitting on Claire in the airport" =)
SPOILERS:
  • Preview for the next episode:
    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QUujxHlcoU
    • Hurley finds "a body bag back here with a body in it" in a DHARMA bus
    • Hurley says to Miles: "Just admit it. You can talk to dead people."
    • Announcer: "Everybody on the Island has a purpose and *his* purpose [Miles?] could hold the answers to all of their destinies."
    • Miles talks to the dead person
    • TheMissingToe: "I liked the foliage being pushed open into some secret hidden area"
    • Someone walks in front of a DHARMA vehicle pointing a gun at the driver and yelling "Stop right there!" - TheMissingToe and diesel929 think it's Radzinsky
    • TheMissingToe: "looks like some more Pierre Chang next week which always good"
  • From SpoilerFix:
    • The next episode's title is "Some Like It Hoth" and it will be Miles-centric
    • "Hoth" is an ice planet from the Star Wars universe:
      • TheMissingToe: "Since Hoth was the ice planet I wonder if this means opening up the freezing area around the Donkey Wheel"
      • David_Alpert: "Wiki says it was pelted with asteroids. Tricia Tanaka sequel? :)"

"Whatever Happened, Happened" Discussion

[Listen to this episode!] [Subscribe to the MP3 feed via iTunes]

the JoshMeister and fellow LOST fans discuss Season 5 Episode 11, "Whatever Happened, Happened", and take a look at what we might see in episode 12, "Dead Is Dead".

The Official LOST Podcast - Non-spoiler notes:
  • Damon hinted that we should be wondering whether Ilana was really working for the family of Peter Avelino to bring Sayid to justice, and whether it was really just a coincidence that they ended up on Ajira Flight 316. About Ilana's story, Carlton said "I think there might be some measure of truth to it, but it might not be the full story," and Damon agreed, "Right."
Season 5 Episode 11 "Whatever Happened, Happened" notes:
  • 1977
    • Kate meets Roger Linus
    • Jin takes Ben back to the Barracks for medical treatment

    • Sawyer finds out that Ben stole Roger's keys to let Sayid out

  • Flashback to 2004
    • Kate takes baby Aaron home and sings Catch a Falling Star to Him
    • She went to visit Cassidy and Clementine

  • 1977
    • Jack refuses to perform surgery even though Juliet doesn't think she can save Ben

    • Kate goes to donate blood

    • Hurley and Miles have a whole conversation about time travel theory
      • The best part is when Hurley asks why Ben didn't remember Sayid as the man who shot him in the past when Sayid was torturing him in 2004, and Miles says "Huh. Hadn't thought of that."
        • Perhaps the producers hadn't though of that, either. ;o) Or else they were just throwing that out there, acknowledging that fans would ask that question sooner or later anyway

    • Juliet suggests to Kate that they get The Others involved to save Ben's life
    • Kate leaves in a DHARMA van with Ben

  • Flashback to 2007
    • Kates leaves the pier with Aaron and says Jack and Ben are crazy
    • Aaron says he's thirsty, so Kate takes him to the store
    • Kate got a call from Jack, and when she went to answer it, she hung up and immediately realized that Aaron was gone
      • A woman who looks a bit like Claire or Carole Littleton was walking to the front of the store with Aaron, and claimed that she found Aaron walking around by himself and was about to have the store make an annoucement

  • 1977
    • Kate gets to the sonic fence, Sawyer shows up and says he's there to help
    • Ben: "Tell my dad I'm sorry"
    • Kate, not to stop her
      • What about the cameras near the sonic fence? Wouldn't someone see Sawyer helping Kate? Maybe Sawyer put Jin on camera duty

  • Flashback to 2007
    • Kate visits Cassidy again and tells what happened at the supermarket, and Cassidy says that Aaron didn't need Kate -- Kate needed Aaron because she lost Sawyer
      • baileybear: "Cassady seemed to have a bad attitude. Sawyer is stuck on a island after a plane crash & Cassady acts like he lives in another state & just ignored her"

  • 1977
    • We didn't need saving! We've been fine for three years. You came back for you.
    • I came back because I was supposed to.
    • Supposed to do what?
    • I don't know yet.
    • Well, you better figure it out.
      • Was Jack supposed to save Ben? Is that why he had to go back?

    • Sawyer asks Kate about Clementine
    • Sawyer says he's done a lot of growing up the last three years
    • The Others find Sawyer and Kate with Ben and say that they're violating the truce by having crossed the line, and Sawyer demands that they take him to Richard Alpert
      • Is Sayid with The Others? What would Sayid think if he knew they were going to help Ben?

  • Flashback to 2007
    • Kate goes alone to see Carole Littleton
    • She tells Carole the truth about Aaron, and says Claire is still alive on the Island but they couldn't find her
      • Uh-oh. Is Claire really still alive?
    • Kate says she's going back to the Island to find "your daughter" -- that is, Claire, Aaron's real mother

  • 1977
    • Richard Alpert finds Sawyer
    • Richard: "If I take him, he's not ever going to be the same again. He'll forget this ever happened, and his innocence will be gone. He will always be one of us. You still want me to take him?"
      • So it's all Jack's fault that Ben became evil? But Richard was already grooming Ben
      • Frediemac: "I think it's just like going down the hole and coming back out from the Smoke Monster the French guy experienced"
        • After all, Richard went to the temple - where Robert and the other French folks went down the hole
      • natlie_in_seattle: "alpet healing ben is like adam and eve eating from the tree of knowledge...a lost of innocent the gaining of all aspect of knowledge (good and evil)"
      • danzam: "Anubis brings ben abck to life"
    • An Other to Richard: "We shouldn't do this without asking Ellie. And when Charles finds out..."
      • Could Daniel Faraday be Charles and Ellie's kid? Assuming that Ellie is Eloise Hawking, that would mean Dan Faraday is Penny's brother, Desmond's brother-in-law, and baby Charlie's uncle
    • Apparently Ben doesn't get fixed by Jack
      • Perhaps after Ben is brought back to the DHARMA barracks after being fixed by The Others, Sawyer and Kate will claim that Jack fixed Ben to avoid the consequences of having worked with the "Hostiles." As mentioned in last week's blog post, that could explain why Ben wanted Jack there when Flight 815 crashed. After all, Jack "wasn't even on Jacob's list" according to Danny Pickett in Season 3 Episode 6, "I Do".
    • Richard takes Young Ben to the temple
  • Present day, on the Island
    • Ben wakes up to see John Locke
    • John: "Hello, Ben. Welcome back to the land of the living."
    • Ben looks surprised
    • John looks unhappy with Ben

  • James721: "where are all the children ? from the tail section"
    • back at the temple?
  • What's the origin of the Anubis statue and the temple, and the heiroglyphics?
    • James721: Egyptian culture formed on Island, figured out how to leave, settled in what we now call Egypt, or the Egyptians found the Island
      • James721 shared a link to "ancient Egyptian submarine? http://www.catchpenny.org/abydos.html" — a site claiming that some hieroglyphics show strong resemblance to helicopters, submarines, spacecrafts, and other modern or futuristic technologies. If true (or at least "true" in the context of the show), where did the ancient Egyptians get that knowledge? From aliens? Time travelers?
SPOILERS:
  • Preview for the next episode:
    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6PHAnVM5vE

POTENTIALLY MAJOR SPOILER:
  • From SpoilerFix (WARNING: don't click this link unless you want to risk being majorly spoiled!)
    • The next episode's title is "Dead is Dead" and it will supposedly be Kate-centric
    • Supporting evidence that Kate might die:
      • Frediemac: "I feel Kate has got a little redemption tonight" — main characters often have some kind of redemption and often have a flashback episode when they're going to die
      • Miles and Hurley had a conversation in this episode about how it's possible for the time travelers to die while they're in the past
      • Rumors have recently circulated on TV news sites that Evangeline Lilly might be leaving the show
    • Evidence that she won't die:
      • On Jimmy Kimmel Live about month ago, Evangeline Lilly (the actress who plays Kate) denied rumors that she was auditioning for other roles and said that she was very happy about being on LOST: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtUkP5Tu06g
      • On the April 6th Official LOST Podcast, the executive producers indicated that the storyline this week will have to do with Locke, Ben, and Penny Widmore, and they didn't hint at anything about Kate in this episode
