Yes, I know how you feel. It's like it would be easier to watch if I knew how many total seasons there will be. (my guess is 6, btw)
... and some polar bears again would be good too.
I think that the Others freed the polars bears - but why? They must have been done "experimenting" on them. Now are they experimenting on Kate and Sawyer? Is it a test for Kate and Sawyer? Remember Walt told Michael for that brief moment in the hut with Ms. Kleough (whom we haven't seen yet) that the Others made him take tests.
And even though Michael sometimes annoys me, I want to know what's happening with the boat.
I'm not sure we'll hear or see anything of Michael and Walt anymore. A friend told me he heard/read somewhere that Harld Perrineau's (Michael) contract wasn't renewed by ABC... but that's through the grapevine so I don't know. It's very possible the Others set Michael up to steer the boat into a "trap" or something. Another test?
Questions I want answered:
Why is Juliet sooo ANNOYING?
Yeah, what is UP with Juliet? She bugs the heck outta me. Her lips are weird. Oops, that was mean. Oh well, I don't care. I think she wants to hook up with Jack to spite Ben/Henry (because obviously they had a deeper relationship and broke up or something)
Why the same song in both S2 and S3 premiers?
It was not the same song. In 2.1, we have Mama Cass Elliot's "Make Your Own Kind of Music" and in 3.1 it's "Downtown" by Petula Clark. Same genre, same decade, though. If I hadn't watched my S.2 DVDs right before the S.3 premiere I would have thought they were the same song.
What's with Libby being at the asylum?
What's with Libby choosing god awful dye colors for her hair (until the blonde at least)? Maybe she has a split personality? Chronologically, Libby was at the asylum at least up to one year before the plane crash (mouse brown hair). In the time between being in the asylum and the crash, Libby dyed her hair orange-red, her husband (David) died, and she met Desmond. Then she dyed her hair blonde and was in the crash=island. Why was Libby in Australia? Was she following Hurley? Because in S.2's Hurley flashback ("Dave" episode), Libby skirts the issue when Hurley asks if he knows her from somewhere. Speaking of which, her husband's name is David and Hurley's imaginary friend is Dave. Did Libby have an imaginary husband? Weird. Connected? Don't know.
Wasn't it Libby who answered the phone when (I'm blanking on the name, but the sailor guy) called home? What's with that?
Desmond is his name, from Scotland. I don't remember Desmond calling home ever... but in the last episode of S.3, when the (Portuguese? Russian?) guys called a woman saying they may have found another magnetic anomoly it was not Libby: it was Desmond's ex-girlfriend Penny, who has been spending lots of money to locate him for the past three years. I would love to see how Desmond ended up in the military prison (where he wrote Penny tons of letters, but her father never delivered them, so Penny thought she was abandoned by Desmond), and what makes Desmond and Penny's love so strong that she would search for him like this for years.
Things I used to know but have forgotten:
Why were Sun and Jin going to the US?
Sun was accompanying Jin on a business trip. He was delivering watches to her father's business associates in Sydney and Los Angeles. Jin secretly planned to run away and stay in the US when they arrived in LA to get away from her father's grisly business, while Sun was secretly planning on leaving her marriage to Jin in Sydney, since it had gone so sour.
This last episode was pretty good for me because Syed and Sun are two of my favorite characters, and the kiss was a good scene too. I want to know more about the Dharma group, oh, and the book they were talking about in the S3 premier -- was it some particular book?
Oh MAN that kiss was HOT. But of course it was... it was Sawyer! Mmmmm. I sort of think Kate's kiss with Jack at the end of S.2 was more passionate, however, since she wasn't bribed into it: she felt it, wanted it, and went for it.
The book at the Others book club was a Stephen King book... couldn't catch the title, though. I thought the book club's conversation was sort of a joke the show's writers were making - about mysteries and predictability, etc. It translated to the writing of the show, too sort of. I'm sorry, I can't remember exactly what they said.
Why would the Others stay on the island if they have the means to leave? How would they have been born there, if it is true they lived their whole lives on the island? They seem a little old to be offspring of the original Dharma Initiative people (the DeGroots). Dharma started in the late 70s, so offspring of the original people would be in their mid-late twenties, not thirties and forties like the Others we've met (Ethan, Goodwin, Juliet, Ben, Tom, Ms. Kleough). Only Alex (Danielle's daughter) looks under 25 to me.
I want to know why they abduct people - especially kids. Kate and Sawyer must be "good" people, since those are the only people the Others seem to want. I hope this season gets better, because I do enjoy the show and I know I'm not any sort of fiction writer, so I feel like I can't complain that I could do better. (PS - sorry about my spelling tonight!)
