Lost just keeps getting better.

I'm not going to spend that much time philosophizing on lost since I'm honestly not that smart.
Instead i will post a few things that other people have said. I did not get virtually any of these things that people saw a) since I'm not that smart and b) since I was 1/2 asleep when I watched the episode on Tuesday due to my lack of sleep last week.
Without further ado:

Anyone else think that Ben's "promise to an old friend" and "loose end to tie up" was killing Penny?

The final chapter of Ulysses is named "Penelope"....

I DO NOT want to say this, but...... if Penny was killed by Ben and Desmond takes off for the island to get revenge, it could explain why baby Charlie is adopted by Simon and Megan Pace.

Sorry, but it does now seem like a possibility. Argh.

Obviously something bad happened to Kate that we didn't see when they were talking to Mrs. Hawking. And she said things needed to be as close to the original crash as possible - Sayid was in handcuffs, just like Kate had been. And she didn't seem super happy about sleeping with Jack - was she maybe getting pregnant for the flight since the original flight carried an unborn blood relative of Jack's?

Wow, that was a lot of comments to read. If there's anybody still out there, here's another 2¢ worth...

Grandad...wait for it...is JACOB!!!

Christian, his son, "speaks for" Jacob. Clair, his granddaughter, is very comfortable in Jacob's cabin with her father. Everything in the show somehow is tied to Jack, his grandson. Aaron, his great-grandson, is speculated to be somehow vital to the island. Grandad was trying to escape from the old folks home conveniently close to the "window" timeframe, and was traveling with a suitcase containing a pair of his son's shoes. Whenever Jacob was "shown" in the cabin, he was ghostlike - could it be that he was in LA (linked to the island by the lamppost) trying to communicate to those on the island to "help me" get back??

Grandad is Jacob...

Great Episode!! I’m starting to see a “Daddy’s shoes” theme I hadn’t noticed before. In previous episodes we see Ben removing his drunken father’s shoes in a flashback. We see Kate removing her drunken father’s shoes in a flashback. Both dads killed at the hands of their child. Now Jack is taking his Daddy’s shoes to him. I always thought it was strange that Christian was wearing white shoes with his navy suit, but I figured the white shoes were symbolic. When God met Moses through a burning bush, He told him to take off his shoes because He was standing on holy ground--a practice that was continued when entering the temple in ancient Jerusalem. And the white shoes seemed a sharp contrast to the man in red shoes – that Eloise pointed out to Desmond, who was marked for death in “Flashes before Your Eyes”. She used the man with red shoes as an illustration that the universe self-corrects. Maybe returning Christian shoes is the whole reason to go back to the island - I mean, who can endure eternity with that kind of fashion faux pas?

People have noted that anytime Locke is headed somewhere important, his legs get wounded again. It happened last week when he fell down the well, and a few weeks before when he got shot. It seems there's destiny involved there, or perhaps the island is "course correcting" itself for healing him.

On that note, did anyone notice in last night's episode that anytime Jack was about to take a drink, he was interrupted? Maybe it's the Island's way of making sure he does what he needs to do - instead of turning into another Christian Shepherd.

The name of the Butcher shop, "Simon's" where Ben was keeping Locke in the coffin really got me thinking this week. In the Bible Simon (called Peter by Jesus) is said to be the first of the 12 Apostles chosen by Jesus. (He was also the first Pope). Perhaps if Jack is meant to be the 'doubting Thomas', then Ben is the 'Simon Peter'.
It looked like someone was there when Locke died and it kind of looked like Ben. Simon Peter witnessed the Transfiguration of Christ. He also was the apostle that denied Christ 3 times. Simon Peter claimed that he would have died for Christ and even cut off the ear of a man during Jesus' initial arrest. Ben also seemed to want to take John Locke's place. Turning the donkey wheel for him thinking it was the right thing to do. Like Ben's attempt to gather the O6 together following Locke's death, Simon Peter was said to have strengthened his breathren after the death of Christ. It is believed that the other apostles were almost under his orders in a way, that they followed what he said. Simon Peter was the first person to enter Christ's tomb after he rose from the dead and is believed to be the first person to see Christ risen.
On a cooky side note, I loved meeting Jack's grandpa Ray. When I was trying to find out if there was any Ray Shephard connection this morning I found a British artist named Ray Sheppard who did a painting of.....polar bears! :O)

I don't think Aaron is with Claire's mom. I think Kate left him with Sawyer's old girlfriend who has his daughter. That way no one could find him. It also explains why Kate wouldn't tell Jack about it. Because she never told Jack about what Sawyer whispered to her in the helicopter.

I don't know if anyone's posted this before but the woman sitting at the bar with Jack was in the episode Abandoned in 2005 ... don't know the significance but it's Lost so there must be some!

Also, Some good LOST info can be found at Doc Jensen's weekly column on ew.com


He does a daily recap before the episode of things to look out for, then does another one the day after discussing theories and reviewing what happened. It's always worth a read.
