Tonight's QTBA

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

I absolutely love Tuesdays and I am super pumped for tonight's episode of LOST.  This is what we know about Season 6, Episode 5 (highlight for answers): Lighthouse.  According to TV Guide, "Hurley tries to pursuade Jack to accompany him on an unspecified mission while Sawyer runs into an old friend".

A quick note about Season 6, Episode 3 (What Kate Does).  There was a bit of controversy about the ultrasound of Claire's baby that was taken in the hospital.  The date on the ultrasound was 10/22/2004 which led people to question the date of the new Oceanic 815 landing.  According to the LOST podcast with Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, the date was a prop error. The plane did in fact, land on 9/22/2004, which is also the day it originally crashed on the island. Good to know.

Okay, down to business. Knowing the little information we do about tonight's episode, these are the questions I'd like to see addressed tonight.

1. The numbers – First appearing in Episode 18 of Season 1 (Numbers), 4-8-15-16-23-42 have been part of LOST folklore from the very beginning. They help Hurley win the lottery, they must be typed into the hatch computer every 108 minutes or the world will end, they appear on Danielle’s map, they are the serial number on the door of The Swan, and they drive Leonard crazy, but what are their origins? With the Losties stuck in 1977, could Hurley actually be tied to the origin of the numbers that later drive him mad?

While we did get a few answers last week, I'm hoping for some more information on the LOST numbers.

2. Claire Littleton – Our favorite island mother has been missing since Season 4, Episode 10 (Something Nice Back Home). We know she saw her father, Christian Shephard, leaves Aaron behind, and wanders off in the jungle night with her dead dad but we don’t know why! What happened to Claire that could take her from doting mother to jungle wander? Why did she leave Aaron behind? We see her in Season 4, Episode 11 (Cabin Fever) seemingly relaxed and Aaron-free sitting in Jacob’s cabin with Christian, but again we receive no explanation of why she’s left her child behind. Let’s hope Season 6 gives us some Claire related clarity!

Claire's got to come back tonight, right?

11. What does it mean when Jacob touches you? - In Season 5, Episode 16 (The Incident), we see Jacob touch eight of our favorite Losties (Sawyer, Kate, Jack, Locke, Sayid, Hurley, Sun, and Jin) sometime during their life. He touches Sawyer, Kate, Jack, Locke, Sun and Jin before they travel to the island on 815 and touches Sayid and Hurley after they were rescued as part of the Oceanic Six. He also visits Illana in a Russian hospital and while we think he touched her, he was wearing gloves. When he touches John Locke after Locke falls eight stories, it appears that Jacob brings him back to life. What does this all mean? Will it have implications for the characters he touched in the future?

Again, a few answers, but I hope we dive a bit deeper into how Jacob's touch drove Jack, Sawyer, Sun, Jin, Hurley, Kate, Sayid, and Locke to the island.

14. Love quadrangle – Who ends up with who? – Don’t pretend you don’t want to know. Are you a Jate (Jack and Kate), a Skate (Sawyer and Kate), a Suliet (Sawyer and Juliet), or a Jacket (Jack and Juliet)? Whoever you’re rooting for, let’s hope this complex love story gets wrapped up in Season 6.

I'm hoping for a Sawyer/Jack showdown tonight.

30. Christian Shephard – We know he’s more than just Jack father, but what’s going on with Christian Shephard? When Jack saw visions of his father during Season 1, were they really visions or has something possessed Christian’s body? Why does Christian lure Claire into the jungle? Why does Christian appear in Jacob’s cabin?

Where's Christian's body?

If this week's episode is anything like last week's, we're in for another treat!
