Meet Jim LaFleur

Lefleur saving mini-Ben

Completed: 5-8 LaFleur, 5-9 Namaste, 5-10 He’s Our You, 5-11 Whatever Happened, Happened. 6 episodes left to go, & 45 days till the Lost Season 6 premier. As you know, I don’t know anything that is to come and like the survivors I am completely lost.

WOW. My mind is still buzzing from these 4 episodes. I was trying to only watch 2 at a time but how the hell was I supposed to stop when this changes EVERYTHING. Cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria!! Recap: Sawyer, Juliet, Ghostbuster (Miles), Mr. Wizard (Daniel) & Jin are left in the 70s after Locke fixes the ice wheel. They kill a couple Others that were about to execute a Dharma lady (Ethan’s Mom!) and Sawyer goes all Bill Clinton and keeps the Dharma/Others truce alive by telling Peter Pan (Richard) that he is from the future and not a part of Dharma. The 5 then decide to live among the Dharma initiative until Locke brings the O6 back. The O6 of course don’t come back for 3 years and by that time Sawyer is known as LaFleur, the trusted head of security and live-in boyfriend of Juliet, who is playing a mechanic. A fully english speaking Jin finds the O3 (Jack, Kate & Hurley) and LaFleur comes up with a plan to have them work among the initiative. The plan gets more complicated when Sayid appears near a station where Radzinski (remember Dez & Army guy talked about him??) is designing the Swan. SawFleur takes him prisoner and offers him a way to live among the initiative as an Other defector but Sayid declines and is given LSD-truth-serum which makes him tells the initiative he is from the future and has been on the island before. We also get a good old fashion flashback and find out that after killing enough people, Other Ben terminated Sayid as hitman extraordinaire only to re-recruit him to spring Hurley free. After Sayid left the O6 arguing at the dock, he was seduced at captured by some hott bounty hunter (Boobie-Fett) who was hired by the family of the guy he killed on the golf course and uses AA Flight 316 to get him to said justice-seeking family. Now while in Dharma Jail, Sayid was getting frequent food visits from boy-Ben, who kept asking Sayid to take him to The Others. Sayid, now convince he was put back on the island to kill Other Ben as a boy,  uses this affection to break out of prison, shoot boy-Ben and escape. Even though they know who he will become, Kate, SawFleur & Juliet all try to convince Jack to save boy-Ben but Jack refuses. Juliet then covers for Kate & SawFleur as they bring him to the only people on the island that can help boy-Ben…The Others. On the way there we find out Kate & Cassidy (Sawyer’s baby’s mama) become close friends and Cassidy knows everything about the island. We also see Kate tell Prego’s (Claire) Mom the truth about everything and Kate leaves Aaron with her to go back to the island to find Prego. Once SawFleur & Kate find Peter Pan, he agrees to help boy-Ben but warns them that he will lose his innocence and will now always be an Other. Finally, back at the crash site, Sun goes off with Other Ben to find a boat to get back to the main island to find Jin. After Swoop (Frank) finds them, Sun knocks out Other Ben and the two paddle to the main island. Other Ben however, wakes up in a hospital bed with a headache and a very much alive John Locke standing over him. Locke welcomes him “to the living” and we are LOST-black screened.

As I said before this changes everything. Before I comment on things I have to comment about whether or not the future can be changed. If Miles & Mr. Wizard are correct and what happened, happened, then Other Ben could never have killed Sawyer, Kate or Jack while they were imprisoned by The Others. Time wouldn’t let him. If you CAN change the future then he was no doubt going out of his way to make sure they didn’t die (assuming he at least remembered Sawyer, Juliet & Miles). For the sake of this entry I’ll assume you can’t change the future. This must mean the island wanted the O6 back so badly because it HAD to happen for the events that already took place to again take place (damn time travel is hard to write about). It’s a serious mind fuck to think that Richard (and to some extent Other Ben) knew all about the Losties before Oceanic Flight 815 even crashed on the island. It also starts to explain the connections between the Losties. They were predestined to meet and be on that flight together because it had already happened before it happened. It’s amazing to think that these people had no idea how much they were steeped in the Dharma history when they first found the hatch and the other stations. They no doubt even caused the incident! (Full disclosure, I noticed the last episode is called The Incident). It’s going to take a complete series re-watch to really digest all the implications of this.

I need to compare the Dharma Losties’ 3 years with the off-island Losties’ 3 years. The Dharma Losties had a much better time of it and are much more likable than their off-island counterparts. SawFleur is the man! I didn’t think I could like Sawyer more than already I did but watching him finally become the leader he was always supposed to be was very cool. As I previously posted, I was already liking Juliet more and more, (I even dropped the Ice Princess nickname) and I love them as a couple. Kate on the other hand is damaged goods and keeps too many secrets; there’s no reason for SawFleur to worry about her. Even Miles is pretty cool now. As with any scene that involves Hurley, the time discussion scene was hilarious. A note on when they questioned why Other Ben recognize didn’t recognize Sayid when he tortured him in the hatch. At first I thought they were pretty stupid not to assume Other Ben was simply pretending not to recognize him, but we learn from Pan that boy-Ben won’t remember anything about getting shot. And then there’s Jack. I hate Jack. Hate. I loved when SawFleur gave him the business on how Jack never thought as a leader and how SawFleur is a man of thought. It’s an interesting inditement on doctors but I would imagine a conman would have to be much more of a strategic thinker than a surgeon. SawFleur however, could not stop Jack from making his usual enormous mistake. By not operating on boy-Ben, Jack created Other Ben. It’s Jack’s fault that boy-Ben was healed by The Others and he lost his innocence (whatever the hell that means). And lastly, I love how Juliet tore into Jack by telling him what I’ve been saying all along…they didn’t need saving! You only went back because you got conned by Other Ben & Locke.

Next up on Finally Lost…maybe Locke will slap around Other Ben. I’d also like to know why Sun was the only of the O6 to not white flash back in time.

p.s. While Ben lied about being born on the island, ironically Ethan had lived on the island his whole life. If mothers could once bear children on the island, then what changed? Maybe the gas? And why didn’t Other Ben give this data point to Juliet since she was trying to solve this problem??

p.s. 2 Did Rose & White Bernard die? Are we just supposed to assume everyone on 815 died? That’s kinda sad and I wished they would have gotten a screen death to confirm

ABOUT THIS BLOG

I have always had a difficult time waiting to find out the ending of my favorite movies, TV shows & books. My resume of obsession includes watching Season 1 of 24 in 3 days, watching Season 2 of 24 in 18 hours and reading each Harry Potter book in one sitting. Knowing that I would love and become obsessed with Lost, I decided to wait before the last season to begin watching it.

This blog will follow me as I watch 5 seasons (103 episodes) of Lost before the final season begins. Relive the experience through me and feel free to mock my terrible theories. Please do not post any spoilers!
