#1: The Surreal of "Left Behind": One Question,,what was "real" about this episode? Nothing was. Like most of season 3 episodes,,this episode was an act of being surreal made plain to see by its obviousness. Time was again out of Kelter. The disconnected dialog seemed back in place with a vengeance. Locke not answering Kate's questions, Kate not answering Julies questions,,etc, gave this a episode a strange and Other Place feel to it. Smokie's reappearance definitely took this episode into the metaphorical. Perhaps the license plate on Kate's car was a clue to " where" this episode,, if not all of LOST is taking place: 40N DV8 is the license plate..I'm sure some will say it was DVB,,but for a mental strench,,just try it as DV8...Forty N Dee Vee Eight..its a tickle of the funny bone...Freudian Deviate.

The original surrealists saw " mans unhappiness" based in the Freudian psychology of that era. That man was " molded" or shaped by inner and outer " forces" and how man attempted to deal with these " forces" is Freudian and the Surrealist co-joined the perspective into their perspective. So,,Kate as free will,,left to contemplate by herself , what the heck was she doing,,is abandoned by Locke( faith) and handcuffed to Julie ( Trust) to work it out in the jungle. As their struggle deepened,,Smokie's ( conscienceless) presence approached. Kate went beyond,,rose to the surreal plain, by over coming her disappointment with how her mother defined LOVE and placed Trust in a Surreal LOVE of doing the rite thing with no strings attached,,no quid pro quo,,no good or bad,,and brought Jack back to awake,,helped him up after apologizing,,and Trusted a future based in knowing the Love.

Sawyer was brought to the same point but by different means. It will be interesting to see who's new perspective will stick and who's won't...or maybe both will adhere to the new hopeful future.

Anonymous Locke's hand 4 Apr 20 2007, 7:51 PM EDT by #1LostFan

Why was Locke's hand bandaged when he came in to see Kate? Did something happen in another episode that I missed? Because if not, maybe he bruised it while beating the hell out of his dad...

guess we'll have to wait for a Locke flashback to see.

Sawyer + Kate = Skate
Jack + Kate = Jate
Jack + Juliet = ?


Also, in keeping with literary references, how come no one has ever mentioned Juliet? I mean, Romeo and Juliet, two people betraying their own houses (Survivors and Others) with potentially disasterous results, etc. It's totally right on.

Oh, and remember when how Michael was Mercutio in the updated Romeo + Juliet? Good old times.

Anonymous Locke's hand and the monster (or monsters?) 0 Apr 11 2007, 9:35 AM EDT by Anonymous

Has anyone noticed Locke's bandaged hand? At the end of the Man from Talahassee episode, both his hands appear to be fine. Then when we see him next in Left Behind, he enters the room Kate is being held in and his right hand is completely bandaged up. I think they let him beat the crap out of his father. But I'm not sure that man he saw really IS his father. Remember Ecko's brother and Jack's dad on the island? Are these just hallucinations? -Maybe the monster (or another entity we are yet unaware of) is capable of manifesting itself to the people on the island? But is it to help or hurt?
Also wondering...If they let Locke beat his "dad" to DEATH?! Then will he or won't he suffer the same consequences as Juliet? And what EXACTLY to they want with Locke? I don't think it's just because he's not in a wheelchair anymore.
