I was very happy with the opener. They fooled me again, with the same trick as last season. And I was looking for it.

Thing is, that new girl looks like Penny. So I thought it was her at first. Then the book club, the whole nine yards.

I was just starting to think, well, they aint trying to shock us with the opener this year, when I seen Eathan Rom in the background and about busted a gut, then then of course it's an Others housing project .

It was surburbia in the middle of the Island. It was fregin Desperate Housewives in the middle of the jungle. It was Leave it to Beaver in the middle of Apocalyspe Now.

I was so damn shocked when we saw Ben looking up in the sky. I'm thinking... "Why are you looking up when it was an earthquake." But, then they showed the plane, and I was like... "OMG, they are on the island" and sure enough, they were. I couldn't believe how HUGE that island was, when the camera panned back. And that damn little community. WOW!

So, now we do know that there is an underwater hatch, for sure. And there are sharks, and dolphins, in the aquarium. We know that the new chick has a bit of authority... if not a "co-leader" with Ben (Henry Gale will always be the first name I think of when I see him). We know that Sawyer and Kate are locked up in zoo cages, and that things, for them, are about to get worse. But how? And, from the previews, it looks like they rest of the survivors are going to hunt for their friends.

It was, overall, a GREAT season opener. I was very happy with it... and look forward to a lot more.

I felt really bad for how Kate was treated. Ben really threw her for a loop with his comments on the beach, at the table... about how she should enjoy this, because the next two weeks were going to be a nightmare (or something like that). Will they be running tests on them?

Ohhhhhhhhh, all that info on Jack. That HUGE folder that "the others" have. And I'm sure that they have something on each of the survivors. HOW did they get those folders, and all that info? Someone has done massive research on them.

Well it was just o.k. for me. I'm losing interest in Lost. Kate and Sawyer are the "lab rats" or "Pavlov's dogs" with the twisted zoo rewards in their cages. I look to see Jack be a hell of a lot stronger than they or we think he is. I also think that Ben's wife doesn't like him that well, and the addition of two hunky men will shake things up a whole lot.

A Tale of Two Cities

We're back...in the middle of a suburban home as a woman puts on a CD and prepares her house for guests. Who is this woman?And why is she upset? She sings along to cheer herself up as she prepares muffins for her book club meeting. During the meeting, just as a debate gets heated, the room starts shaking. Is it an earthquake? The book club members run outside to investigate -- and we see they are a part of a small community of houses. Everybody tracks the noises upwards to see a plane tear apart in mid-air. The fuselage falls in one direction while the tail section falls in another. A familiar face, Henry Gale (Ben), gives orders and we realize what we've just witnessed: the crash of Ocean Flight 815.

Don't let suburbia fool you -- this is the Others' home. We've been on the island all this time. Welcome to Season Three, folks. We're still LOST.

Jack awakes on a dark steel table in a room with Plexiglass dividing it and a harness hanging from the ceiling. He tries to get out but the room is secured and locked.

Somewhere outside, Sawyer awakes in a cage with a mysterious food dispenser. In a locker room, Kate awakes to find Mr. Friendly standing over her. He offers her a shower to freshen up and a new dress.

Jack is visited by the woman running the book club. She introduces herself as Juliet. She tries to reason with him but Jack stubbornly refuses, demanding to know where his friends are and what's going on. She offers him food if he cooperates in an attempt to gain his trust. But Jack isn't playing by her rules and lies when she asks him questions about himself.

In the past, Jack has trouble with his divorce. He can't let go of Sarah without knowing for whom she left him. He attempts one last reconciliation, but it fails when he demands the name of Sarah's new love. He even goes as far as cold-calling numbers from an old cell phone bill of hers, trying to identify the new man. Unfortunately, he discovers one of the numbers to be Christian's, his father. Jack immediately assumes the worst -- that the new man in Sarah's life is his father.

Sawyer works out the gizmos in his cage and gets a reward: a fish biscuit, water and grain. Mr.Friendly locks Kate in the nearby cage, mocking Sawyer on his way out. Sawyer throws the biscuit to Kate, and they reconnect over their meal.

Jack is again visited by Juliet. Beginning to get an idea of what kind of situation he's in, he decides to play by her rules. He sits with his back against the far wall so she can enter his "room" and bring him food. When she enters, Jack jumps her, threatening to cut her neck with a shard from a broken plate and demanding to be let go. Henry appears and tells Jack if he tries to leave through the door Jack's trying to open, they will all be killed. Jack throws open the door anyway, unleashing thousands of gallons of water. Henry escapes into a room before Juliet can make it. This forces her and Jack to work together. They fight their way into another room and hit an emergency button that begins to drain the water. Once safe, Juliet immediately punches Jack and knocks him out.

Flashback to the hospital where Jack overhears Christian on his cell phone. Thinking it's Sarah that Christian is talking to, Jack follows Christian. He bursts in on his AA meeting, confronts his father, loses control and physically attacks him. Jack is bailed out of jail by Sarah. Embarrassed about his behavior, Jack follows her outside trying to explain. Then Jack sees a man stands next to her car waiting. Jack asks if that's him. Sarah doesn't answer but tells Jack his father was so drunk when he called her that she barely understood him. Now Jack has something new to fix.

Jack wakes up back in his "room." Juliet is on the other side of the Plexiglass waiting for him. He intuits where they are: underwater in an aquarium. Juliet nods. It's another Dharma Initiative station: the Hydra.Juliet holds a folder thick with information on him.She explains that she knows a lot more about him than she previously let on. Broken by this revelation, Jack follows her orders so she may enter with food and crosses to the opposite side of the room.

As she steps into the hallway, Ben greets her with a congratulatory "Good work." She replies with a simple "Thank you."

I don't know if she is Ben's wife, but it looks as if they were together at some point. She seems bitter towards him.... like a woman scorned.

I don't understand why Sarah wouldn't tell Jack who the guy is? What's the big deal? There must be a REASON they're hiding it from us.

Kate still gets on my nerves.

and why does Jack look so....sickly?

Because he hasn't had any food or water yet in who knows how long. At least a day.

When the earthquake hit I thought, "Okay, that's the hatch going off from the end of season two. That must either be a HUGE earthquake to reach all the way from the island, or that is on the island." I didn't think about when Desmond didn't push the button the first time, and I didn't think that the Others had their own little suburbia on the island--I thought maybe they were in their own hatch.

I was right about the Others being Dharma!

I thought that it was a good episode, but I was hoping for more from the first episode of the season. I want to know what happened to Locke, Desmond, and Mr. Eko!

I never did read the book, but saw the movie.

I don't know why Sarah didn't tell Jack what the guys name was. But, it's possible, she just wanted to move on with her life, and Jack was hanging on to it, and trying to control it. In all actuality, Jack didn't NEED to know his name.

Do we know that the Others are truly Dharma people, or that they themselves were placed on this island, in a similar way, and have adapted over the years? That they were finally shown things, and have taken over running the place. Until we know, it could be anything. But, I think that we're supposed to find out the truth of them by the seasons end.

I think that they started out this way, because season one was about the front of the plane. Season two started out with the tail section of the plane peeps, and now, with the others. Next week, I believe that we will be seeing the gang from the plane (according to the previews) but you don't see Eko or Locke, or Desmond. They want to keep us in suspense. In all honesty, I kinda thought that it might start with Penny, since it ended with her getting that phone call from the guys.

I think I saw Locke in next week's preview, I could be wrong. But I didn't see Mr. Eko.

I wonder what the torturous two weeks is gonna be about for the three with the others. What are they gonna do?

In Dark Tower 7, Roland and crew take on a city built in the middle of nowhere. It's in the middle of a monster "chemical war zone" made desert.

Green trees, buildings, holodecks from Star Trek, fire station, etc. They got everything. They are a group of "breakers", trying to break the beam. There are 6 beams that intersect the Dark Tower and hold up all of creation. The town and the breakers use mental power to destroy the beam, and make it snap, resulting in the destruction of all known existence.

It's not the same thing of course, but seeing the town out there in the middle of the Island like that, made me think of it.

Yep, it was Carrie. About a teenage girl who can move things with her mind, and she goes to prom, they drop some pig blood on her for a joke, and she goes wild and kills them all.
