Did You Know?


Hurley is flying next to his guitar. It is extremely improbable that an airline would let him take such a big piece of luggage on board. It'd have to go to the cargo bay. However, it is stated in the episode previous (Lafleur) that Hurley had purchased 78 additional seats. Perhaps he used one of those tickets for his guitar. See more »

When Kate asked Jack: "So ... What are we supposed to do now?"
21 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Namaste is another episode of LOST, that's why it is very good, and no one can deny that. But really: What are we waiting to happen next? Is the show become just answers to the questions that appeared during the later seasons? Do the writers since the idea of "We have to go back" trying to stretch in the LOST existence?

In Namaste it is clarified that the story becomes nice to follow to know the answers of the Island's mysteries, and to know How would Jin and Sun back to each other?, and Who would marry who from the four lovers at the end?, but there is no main concentration, there is no main problem in the show anymore.

I felt the same as Kate when she asked jack: "So ... What are we supposed to do now?", and I am asking the writers the same question, "What are they and you supposed to do now?", I hope you don't answer me like Jack did to Kate by saying: "I'm not sure yet".
