Did You Know?


In Lost: Live Together, Die Alone (2006), Sayid wondered why the remaining foot of the large statue only has four toes. Although the question is never explicitly answered in the series, this episode provides a good look of the full statue (we only saw the back of it in Lost: LaFleur (2009)), revealing that it has the body of a human, and the face of an animal (hippopotamus). The implied reason for the statue having four toes on its feet is because it does not depict a human, but a human-animal hybrid (later revealed to be the Egyptian goddess Taweret). See more »


The first time we see inside Jacob's workroom, the flames from the fire are going backwards, indicating the video was time-reversed - perhaps to indicate that time doesn't work right in Jacob's presence. See more »

Best. Finale. Ever?
23 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I LOOOVE this episode. I was not expecting it to be as perfect as it is. That beginning! That ending! Just- - everything was perfect. Even the sweat stains. From that awesome beginning that is like any other Lost opening (premiere-wise) to that awesome skin-tingling cliffhanger ending, I've got nothing bad to say (except for the lack of sleep it caused, but it was worth it) about the Incident. This is definitely the best episode of the season. The face I had when L O S T banged onto the screen at the end of it was shock. Pure shock. And giddy. Oh, it was good. Deliciously good. The plot twist I did not see for 2000 miles coming.

Damon and Carlton know how to write their episodes of Lost. When it's all said and done next May, I will flood the house with my tears. Then I'll stop, and watch season 6 again. Then I'll cry and flood the house again.

Awesomely good. I will spare you from my rambling, now. See you in January!
