Lost 1.10 "Raised by Another" (SPOILERS)

Taking a cue from the previous lost threads, and being as how there is an episode tonight, but no thread to talk about it in!

ABC’s teaser shows today’s episode as: “Jack, Kate and Charlie wonder if Claire’s disturbing nightmares might be coming true to threaten her life and the life of her unborn child, and a missing castaway returns with frightening news about what lies just beyond the mountains.”

So Sayid returns? And maybe something supernatural again (finally), haven’t had that in a few episodes (besides a hint of it last ep).

And of course, the Lost threads spoiler policy:

Just checking in. It’s been two weeks, dammit! I need to get Lost !

I’m wondering if we’ll get Claire’s backstory tonight, and maybe someone else’s. since she’s not a major character. I’m dying to know the backstory on Michael and Walt, and Hurley, too.

Is it 8:00 yet?

Soon man, soon. I think this’ll be Claire’s day based on the episode description.

So there I was, elbows-deep in turkey brine, thinking, “Damn, my life is missing something right about now…”

But now it’s another Wednesday and I can have my show back! I even finished at work 90 minutes early so I can watch in real time. Thanks, universe!

I second that!

cracks knuckles, stretches hamstrings


Ahem, sorry just getting warmed up. It’s been two weeks. My zombie theorizing is getting rusty – oo, did I mention my new theory that the power cable was hooked up to a nuclear sub full of radioactive mutants – aka the Voices the Whisper?


Did I mention I love this show?

Well, I do.

I love this show.

Oh, yeah, baby. The only new show this season that convinces me to put away the Firefly DVDs for an evening. :slight_smile:

So, it turns out Hugo Reyes (AKA Hurley) is the brains of the operation. Who knew?

We’re getting a lot of last names this episode.

Claire Littleton, Boone and Shannon Rutherford. Ethan still doesn’t have a last name.

Nor do Scott and Steve (who the hell are Scott and Steve)?

I got you beat. I kept missing chunks because of screaming babypants. Now we have one of those fancy video recorders that lets us pause live TV. No more missed plot developments ever.

What’s up with this psychic guy? Is he just a scummy baby-peddler?

he he, this is getting cool.

Oh come on!

The evil psycho is Canadian?

We’re not dangerous without beer and hockey sticks!

okay, why are Locke’s and Hurey’s shirts so clean and neatly pressed?

And why is the the evil guy Canadian, eh?

They do all seem rather neat and clean. And I know this is kinda mean, but wouldn’t you think they would all be losing weight by now? The big guy is still the same as he was the first episode.

Maybe this has all been explained before, I’m a Lost n00bie.

That was an awesome ending!

Could “Ethan” really be Alex, or is he too old for that?

He’s def. not canadian. I think he’s ____(forgot the name), the woman’s son, from last episode. He was born on the island (I guess), and acted like he was from the plane. According to Hugo (I wanted to say Hurley), one of em wasn’t on the plane, musta been him!

Double post, but forgot to add this:

Really gives new meaning to the Jack Handey quote: “I bet the main reason the police keep people away from a plane crash is the ydon’t want anybody walking in and lying down in the crash stuff, then, when somebody comes up, act like they just woke up and go, “What was THAT?!””

That was the best show ending so far! It was all suspenseful and stuff! And we found out who wasn’t on the plane! And … and … and … woo, I just have to catch my breath.

Ooh, loved the exchange between Hurley and Sawyer. Hurley didn’t bat an eye when he called him Stay Puft. :slight_smile:

Yes he does: Rom.

If Ethan was born on the island, Danielle has been there much longer than 16 years (like three times as long).

That was a shock, I must say.

No clue in the preview as to whose backstory we’ll get next week (if anybody’s).
