Lost Season Premiere
Caution: you are about to enter a spoiler zone.
I have to say that the season premiere of Lost lived up to the hype in my book! Yes, it was confusing and left us with more questions then answers, but that is what we knew it was going to do. But, I loved the answers we did get.
Where did the Polar Bears come from?
I have been a big believer in the theory that the Lost island was some where in the arctic. This could still be the case, but the cage where "the others" are keeping Sawyer is explained as a bear cage. This could be where the Polar Bears came from. Of course, if it only took them two hours to figure out the test to get treats, why couldn't the one trying to eat Walt in the first season work out how to get to him?
What is Henry Gale's real name?
Well, at the end of the episode he is called Ben.
Where were "The Others" when the plane crashed and did they have something to do with it?
That was a strange twist. "The Others" live in a makeshift Mayberry where housewives bake muffins and have book clubs. Of course, they throw a punch better then they bake and their books (Stephen King's Carrie) are not on the Oprah list.
We're also told that Ben/Henry wouldn't like that the reading group was reading that particular novel. Thinking back, on that moment, after the scenes with Jack and Juliet made me think that Ben and the Juliet (one of the then new Others) don't see eye to eye on many things.
How do "the others" know so much about the Lost girls and boys?
They have dossiers on each of them. This brought a thousand questions to my mind. The top one being: Do they know that Jack and Claire are brother and sister (unless that episode was misdirection) and if so, will they tell them?
Am I missing anything here? I need to watch it again.
Did you see the picture at the top of this post. Magiclamp.org grabbed it from ABC's website .
Who's the girl? I hate waiting a week!
