Hello Everyone and welcome to my blog. I have been obsessed with Lost for quite some time now and thought it was only appropriate to just start my very own blog about it instead of relying on others!

So, since it's late in the game I'll just do a quick recap of the episodes so far (which you can go click through on the archives.) My plan for this blog is to watch the episode, jot down the major themes I notice throughout, recap them here, and then add my theories, predictions, and connections these theories have to the past to help everyone remember anything important they may have forgotten. (Since I'm a huge nerd.)

Episode 4 -- Eggtown

Alright, a lot of people have been talking smack about this episode, but I think they are full of it. No, there were no jungle whispers or Locke induced explosions, or new hatch discoveries, but lets take a look at that HUGE information we were given! As always, I'll start with on the island, though I think the most important info definitely came in Kate's flashforward.

On the Island

1. Ben plays mind games with Locke, as per usual, telling him he's more lost than ever
2. Jin and Sun discuss their post island plans (foreshadowing?)
3. Locke makes it clear that he is not running a democracy.
4. Kate brakes Miles out to meet Ben, Miles asks for $3.2 million in exchange for telling his boss (who Ben apparently knows about) that he is dead.
5. Miles knows all about Kate and what she did before she got to the island.
6. Locke kicks Kate out
7. Daniel can't remember more than 3 playing cards
8. Locke sticks a live grenade in Miles' mouth

Ok - now for the big time!

Off the Island

1. Kate is charged with fraud, arson, assault and murder, to which she pleads not guilty.
2. She refuses to bring her son to testify about her character.
3. Jack comes to the stand and tells a CRAZY lie about what happened to the plane, on the island, etc... Only 8 people survived!? ... Kate helped all of them onto the shore and treated them!?
4. Kate interrupts and says she can't list to it anymore.
5. Jack says he doesn't love her anymore.
6. Kate's MOM is still alive and says she won't testify against Kate.
7. Kate accepts a plea deal that gives her 10 years of in-state probation, so she won't be leaving California for a while
8. Jack tells her afterwards that he didn't mean what he said (and still loves her), but he won't see the baby.
9. Kate says she's seen Jack tell his story so many times she thinks he's starting to believe it!
9. Kate goes home to her big house, goes up to her son's room, the son says, "Hi Mommy," and Kate says, "Hi Aaron." !!!

Alright. The made up story about 8 people surviving and Kate trying to save them all, is out-of-this-world! And, Kate has Aaron! Talk about a big deal episode. I find that these two things put together have begun to draw a picture of just what might have happened when the Oceanic 6 got off the island, and it doesn't feel good. I thought this episode had an overall feel of creepiness and foreboding. For Kate to have Aaron, something bad had to have happened, either at the hands of the Losties or the freighter people or any number of people we may not have met yet. Where is Claire? Why did they make up that story? Was it to cover up something dreadful or was it just so that Kate could get off the hook?

These findings also support the notion that there are still people on the island that may or may not be in danger. Why were they left behind?

I don't know, but I thought this was one of the most depressing episodes, despite all the huge information is provided us with.
