Lost: Eggtown

Posted by BenSpark on February 22, 2008

There will be spoilers. You have been warned.

Last night’s Lost episode was a Kate centric one full of flash forwards of her life after the island. Kate is one of the Oceanic 6 and which was revealed at the end of last year’s finale. However in this episode we learn the 5 person who was part of the Oceanic 6.

In Kate’s flash forwards we see her standing trial for the murder of her mother’s husband. The guy who was abusing her and her mother for years. Kate blew him up. And Kate’s mother was none to pleased. What? Come on the guy was scum good riddance. Kate did the world a favor. This however put Kate on the run and ended up causing the death of her good friend. She also had a failed marriage and had to constantly lie to people.

Well, the lies are still coming because as Jack testified in court we hear a very different story than what really happened on the island. For one thing Jack says that Kate saved everyone and gave them medical attention. No one seemed to ask Jack how a doctor wasn’t the one to administer all the first aid. But no matter, small detail.

Jack also says that only 8 people survived the crash, who were the other two (aside form the Oceanic 6) and what happened to them, are they dead or are they just two people who are remaining anonymous after the rescue. Who is still on the island? Who is dead? I want to know.

On the island Kate stirs up trouble in Team Locke. Kate uses Sawyer to distract Locke so that she can free Miles and get him to see Ben. She helps Miles get in to talk to Ben. This is one time that I have seen Ben actually shaken up a bit. The cocky attitude of Miles is growing on me a bit. When Ben says that Miles is trying to blackmail him Miles corrects him and says that what he is doing is actually extortion. Miles tells Be that for 3.2 million dollars he will tell the people that he works for that Ben is already dead. Ben starts doing his mind games and Miles shuts him down telling Ben not to even think about treating him like the survivors of Oceanic 815. Miles is actually informed.

This little field trip has consequences however as Locke points out to Miles. Locke takes a grenade and sticks it in Miles’ mouth, pulls the pin and tells him to enjoy his breakfast. Locke has turned into one crazy dude. He is trying to get information from Ben but cannot outwit Ben. He can no longer find the cabin of Jacob and he is being questioned by everyone.

It was very interesting to see how just being back in houses made changes to people. The houses are nice they aren’t decked out with designer faucets but they do have running water. The thing that was interesting was when John Locke goes to Claire’s house. He doesn’t knock he just busts in. While Claire has already assimilated with being back in a house John has not. He has gone completely native and will continue to spiral into his own madness till he gets more direction from the island.

Meanwhile on Team Jack the team at the beach is introduced to Charlotte and Daniel. For the most part the survivors are pretty happy to see them or at least aren’t trying to kill them right off. So that is saying something on this island. Jack and Co try and raise the ship all day long. No answer. So they get the emergency number and find out that the helicopter has not made it back to the ship. It obviously makes it at some point as Sayid is one of the Oceanic 6. Next week we learn the fate of the chopper.

Tonight we also learn the identity of one more member of the Oceanic 6. I called it very early on in the episode. The clues were all over the place. At the end of the show Kate gets off with 10 years probation. No jail time. She comes home to see her son. Her son looks to be about 4 or 5 but I can’t tell. And her son is Aaron. I saw it coming from very early in the show and it was reinforced when Kate and Claire were hanging laundry and Claire asked Kate to look after Aaron. Kate refused because she was “not good with kids”. Then in the trial Kate’s lawyer wanted to bring in her son. So I saw it coming. It makes things even more interesting. What happened to Claire? More questions.

Here is what TV Squad had to say.

    I called it too! I guess it was pretty obvious that it was Aaron..but I was still proud of myself. My girlfriend thought maybe it was Jack’s baby with her because of how Kate acted in the parking garage. I love Lost…so much…

    No idea. I haven’t seen this one drop much though. And what is funny is that I have subs on this blog than the one with the lower Alexa rank.
