....And were off!

Ok now, tell the truth. How many of you had to pick your jaws up off the floor?? That was the finest 3 to 4 minutes of Lost...EVER

How clever to yet again start the season with an eye shot only to pan back and discover newcomer Juliet playing CD's, burning muffins and entertaining a book club. After a few moments of playful banter (at the expense of someone named Ben) the walls shake violently and everyone remembers their earthquake survival skills training and heads for the doorway. At this point, I was truely saying WTF?? My bewilderment was instantly met with shock horror when out of one of the houses pops Henry Gale aka Ben! As everyone runs out of their tidy little houses with their manicured lawns, all eyes go to the sky. Why do they look like they are waiting for something? OMG! The plane! Our plane! Oceanic Flight815, breaking in half, in mid air over a little TOWN in the middle of the freaking island!!?? Ben immediatly puts our old friends Ethan and Goodwin to work, infiltrating the Losties and sarcastically asks Juliet if he's out of the book club.

The rest of the show drags from here. No just kidding! The show is Jack centric and we see a different side of jack we haven't seen before. A very insecure Jack starts his flashback by following his soon to be ex wife Sarah as she meets wtih someone...tring to find the man she is now involved with. He steals numbers off her cell phone to try and figure out who he is. At one point even believing his own father is having an affair with Sarah. Apparently Jack has issues with giving in to the fact that Sarah does not love ego driven Jack anymore. Jack awakens to find himself in a room of some sort that really is a cell with glass walls and a smiling Juliet on the other side. Juliet wants Jack to trust her and issue ladden Jack is having none of that. He attacks Juliet to try and escape only to find that he is underwater in the Hydra Hatch and there will be NO escaping any time soon. Juliet, who is armed with information on Jack and his whole life finally begins to wear Jack down and he finally lets go of Sarah and begins the process of trusting Juliet.

Kate awakens to a hot shower and a new dress compliments of Mr. Friendly (Tom) who tells an indignant Kate that she is not his type but HE is waiting. HE is Ben who has a lovely tent with food and a spectacular view of the ocean. As Kate is escorted to her seat, she is asked to put on the handcuffs and is told, in the second most jaw dropping scene of the night, that she was given the dress to feel pretty, the food and fork to feel civilized, and the view to feel comforted because the next 2 weeks are going to be very UNcomfortable! Yikes....somehow I get the feeling he really means it.

Sawyer awakens in a cage in what looks to be a zoo! He also has company in a cage across from his. This boy does not speak much but tries to warn Sawyer about hitting the food button. Sawyer being ,well, Sawyer just has to push the button again and gets the shock of his life, literally! It turns out the boy is pretty adept and picks the lock easily on he and Sawyers cages'. He tells Sawyer to go one way while he runs the other. Sawyer doesn't get far when out pops Juliet and nails him again! After being safely behind bars again...the boy is led to Sawyers cage and is made to apologize for getting him into trouble. Sawyer returns to monkey business trying to get the button to give him a treat and finally suceeds only to be told by Tom that the bears did it faster. :P Kate is eventually returned, to escapee artist's cell and Sawyer once again shows his soft side to Kate by throwing her the fish bisquit he won.

The show is off to a running start and looks in no hurry to slow down. Can't wait till next week!

Great re-cap!

I'm beginning to wonder if the others and the losties are part of the same experiment, conducted by Dharma.
I heard that Juliet's last name is deGroot? Has anyone heard this before?

The plane 'broke apart'. It did not come ripping out of the sky, vertically.

At the peacefull bookclub, there was no signs of a magnetic anomaly. I personally believe that Dez's lack of pushing the button did not make the plane crash.

No I think it did. The others are to far away to feel the effect.

AHHHHHHHHH!God damn it I still haven't seen it yet!I downloaded what i thought was the first episode or so it said turns out it wasn't and now I have been downloading the right one for the last two days cause I don't know how to configure the system to make it go faster,too technical for me gonna have to take it to a specialist to set it up correctly!!
Why must I suck so much :)

I am working on season II

Well there goes my memory theory.

Okay some observations that maybe some people saw. Did Juliet actually say something about Sara? Cuz I was thinking that all the other infor she could have gotten from Kate, and bluffed the rest.

Also, HOWCIME the losties have never gone exploring to this part of the island? Why hasn't the french lady found this place? She found that stupid boat...the black rock.
Also, is it me or does the who boy in the cage, letting out sawyer, seem like a setup? I mean maybe sawyer will feel that this dude is someone to trust and open to him, when really he's just trying to get info from sawyer.....what I have no idea?

Oh and by the way....HI ALL!!!!

Nice recap Nanny! And HEY Tom!!! Long time no see, miss ya!

Sawsee...my son came up with a great theory about the plane crashing. He thinks when Des did not press the button...it let down the cloaking device to allow the plane to enter the atmosphere. after the plane entered...Des hit the button...causing the cloaking device to come back on...but it caught the plane as it was passing thru and cut it in half. It makes as good as sense as anything I have heard, but again...this is just a theory.
