We now have 4 new visitors to The Island, and they haven’t come to rescue the Lostaways, the’ve come for Ben. Whether that means to kill him or help him, we don’t know. Meanwhile, Jack seems to have grown a spine and is actually taking charge… until he sees the chopper-- then he looks like he’ll fall back to being the stupid, trusting Jack that got them into so much trouble of the past few months.
Meanwhile, Locke is holding CS Lewis. Will he get more instructions from taller Waaaaaalt!? Some of us seem to think the Lewis is in cahoots with Ben. Maybe. Anyone want to bet that we won’t find out in this episode?
From the preview on Lostpedia for this episode:
** “The Economist” **: Locke’s hostage may be the key to getting off the island, so Sayid and Kate go in search of their fellow castaway in an attempt to negotiate a peaceful deal.
Some useful Café Society links are given below:
Here are some interesting external links:
The Lost Report: A very well written summary of the most current episode often containing interesting insights. I don’t think you’ll find spoilers.
The Tail Section: Excellent site for still frame photos of key scenes, along with some good analysis. But… beware of spoilers!
Sledgeweb’s Lost… Stuff: Pretty good site, but again beware of spoilers. I use it mainly for the Timeline section, which is an incredibly detailed breakdown of “how long since…?” for almost anything you can think of (pre- and post-plane crash).
Door Map from Episode 2.17. A nicely cleaned up version of the diagram Locke saw while pinned under the lockdown doors. No spoilers.
Lostpedia: The wikipedia of Lost information. Quite a comprehensive site, but beware of spoilers!
ThEmIsFiTiShErE: The Misfit offers his whacky commentary on “Lost”. Is he a nut-case or a clever insider? Careful, though, possible spoilers.
