  1. So do you all think the island actually has healing powers? How do you explain the fact that Shannon's asthma wasn't cured? Or Hurley's mental illness?

    I think shannon's asthma may have been a crutch. She acted like a spoiled kid, perhaps she created problems for herself too. Perhaps she didn't have asthma at all and that's why it didn't improve on the island.

    The magical healing powers of the island also explain why everyone doesn't have diarrhea. All that fruit and no Cottonelle, oy vey!

    Shannon didn't have any asthma attacks on the island, did she? Early on, she was having trouble breathing and they tortured Sawyer, but he didn't have an inhaler. After that, Shannon did not have any breathing problems, so I am not sure how someone could say that her asthma wasn't cured.

    As to Hurley, I am still in the hold out camp that the island Dave was brought on by the island, not the same as the institution Dave which was manifested by Hurley himself. And lest someone misinterpret what I am saying, yes I do think that Dave was Hurley's imaginary friend and not real.

    I am still waiting for Hulk to give me more info on the Dave thing from the podcast to see if I am completely off base or not.

    All that said, to be honest, I am not sure what the "healing power" really is, but I think we have seen 3 cases of it occuring and an acknowlegement from Rose and Locke (and thus the writers) in the last episode that it does exist. That said, the marshall still died as did others in the plane crash, so it doesn't appear to instantaneously heal traumatic wounds. I have a thought, what if the healing is only for conditions that would be considered as a body not working correctly, i.e. puts cancer cells into remission but doesn't heal internal injuries due to gunshot wounds?

    I thought she did when Boone died and Jack talked her thru it.
  2. The one that I can't put my finger on is the Jin pregnancy. I don't think it was Jin being infertile but rather Sun firing blanks. That's what I took the doctor's point being somehow. Maybe he managed to fire a live round after all?

    :confused:

    Jin is a boy and Sun is a girl.

    I think it was pretty clear that Jin was the one firing blanks while Sun's reproductive system was fine. Hence, my thought that she could've slept with another on the island and that got her pregnant.

    I always mix up their names for whatever reason. Anyway, I think Jin is the father. While she appeared to have some romantic feelings for her tutor/hotel heir, I just don't think she slept with him. I think she's surprised by her pregnancy, perhaps, because she thought she was infertile. Maybe she didn't get the doctor's gist like we did?

    I agree with you although I can't help but wonder about the pregnancy test. Most people don't carry one of these unless they have good reason. She knew there was one on the plane...

    What about Charlie? Was she unconscious when he abducted her? I can't remember.

    If she did sleep with someone else on the island (IMO I don't think she did) it would have been Michael.

    Who knows what was causing his infertility. Maybe his tighty-whiteys were too tight and now that he's only got 1 pair, the elastic is wearing out and his swimmers are improving.

    It's certainly possible that the guy could've shot 1 mark spitz amongst all the doggie-paddlers. Haven't you guys ever heard stories of couples being told they'll never have children and then they do? Doesn't seem that crazy.

  5. Why didnt Henry Gale escape when he had the chance?

    He didn't think that they would dig up the grave.

    The real question should be why didn't Locke use the vent himself instead of letting Henry out.

    :goodposting: That is a good question. Perhaps he didn't think of it. Stress makes us think less clearly.

    What took the former henry gale so long to get back to locke?

  6. What the hell happened to Michael? Haven't seen him in a while.

    He grabbed a gun and went after the others after that message to him on the computer. The group went looking for him and that's when the line was drawn.

    It's only been a couple days in island time, but I am surprised the writers will completely drop huge pieces out of the story for several episodes at a time:

    - Walt being taken

    - Desmond running off

    - The Taillies children being taken

    - The brunnett disappearing on the walk to the original camp

    - Michael disappearing

    Wouldn't each of these be a fairly signficant event leading to several rescue attempt or at least dominate discussions?

    The group doesn't seem to have a goal right now and I'd damn sure make it my goal to answer the above. No way would people be sitting around reading a book with these events happening.

    :goodposting:

    I agree with you. Your survival's at stake, wouldn't you think about protecting yourself and your own?

  7. I do not agree that because there has been manipulation that the illness is a made up story. Like I said above, I do actually believe Rousseau's back story, and if I believe her, then I have to believe that there is some sort of sickness. I also don't think Ethan had any reason to lie to Claire if Alex was correct and they were going to kill her after having the baby. If you believe Alex, why wouldn't you believe Ethan?

    But Ethan told Claire she could go back to the other survivors...

    Anyway, this really is just a difference in opinion not a discussion of proof (which obviously does not exist at this point either way), because we have not seen any illness so far and we have also not seen that Rousseau is lying either. There may be an illness and there may not, no one knows for certain.

    We dont know the truth about Rousseau's shipmates, but she did lie about the black smoke.

    I agree about the lack of evidence, but I guess I feel that Ive seen nothing to make me believe the sickness is real. The stuff Ethan was injecting in Claire seemed to put her in that "tipsy" state. Not to mention the fact that he seemed to be poking her randomly, not using an ultrasound to actually inject Aaron.

    Dr. Van Nostrand is, after all, a fake dermatologist. We should probably trust his opinion on this one.
  8. Interesting that Locke or anyone else has not wanted to see the other hatch, unless he was told the journey is too dangerous per the Tailies/Sawyer/Jin/Michael and that it was abandoned.

    :goodposting:

    Why hasn't there been any discussion about their hatch? I also wonder why there is so little exploration of these structures in general. You don't just dig a hole and throw a structure into it, there must've been some machinery, shouldn't there have been?

  9. Weren't the children abducted the first night?

    No, they came for them a few days later.

    One thing that doesn't seem right to me is if Ethan never came up with a list how did Zeke know eveyone's names when they met up in the jungle.

    Perhaps Walt told them? What's to say the others aren't monitoring the survivors?

    Ethan didn't produce a list but he may still have talked with Zeke about the key players.

  10. Did anyone get anything out of last nights episode? Was there some ground-laying stuff there that I'm missing?

    Apparently, Charlie has a history with drugs. That was a pretty big revelation.

    Thanx guys! :rolleyes:

    WTF kind of answers did you expect to such a dumb question?

    Easy Killer. Every week, people find things that I miss like "alex" with the captured kate. What makes this week any different?
