A few thoughts I had while watching this episode, all of which proved to be (more or less) true:



1. Daniel is Widmore's son. I had never entertained the idea before but it became pretty apparent with the interest he was taking in Daniel and the fact that Daniel's father has always been MIA, so that when he said Daniel is his son too, I'm sure most of us thought," Well, duh!" Was this a commonly held theory before this ep?

2. It also became abundantly clear that someone who "wasn't supposed to be there" was going to be killed off. Which does not, in any way, affect them being alive in the future, correct? Because there are essentially two of them now, like baby Miles and adult Miles, except that not everyone is happening to be in the same place (or yet born) as their past self. So Daniel is *not* dead, at least not future!Daniel, right?

And that's it...

But if I've learned anything from watching 24 (every season but this one), it's when you've got to flee for your life DO NOT take the time to pack anything. JUST GO. Eeeeee. Does this mean Sayid has to come save Sawyer? Or maybe Richard?

Good to see Jack doing *something* again besides mopping a floor and eating pancakes. Did they make a deal for Foxy to be half naked more often because Josh is now in a jumpsuit 24/7? ;)

I can't believe it's nearly the end of the season. I can't believe it's nearly the end of the SHOW.

Yeah, I think so. From the moment that they showed that his mother was on the island. Sometimes I hate when fandom gets things so quickly. *g*

Uh.... Daniel who is in 1977's future is not yet dead because he still has to grow up (so that he can become a physicist, get hired by Widmore to go on the freighter expedition and go to the island).

Or maybe Richard?
Ooooh, Richard saving Sawyer - I like that!

1) That was my commonly held theory...but I can't speak for anyone else.

Also, we seriously have seen more of half-naked Foxy this season than we have in the previous four, lol, which is sadly generally the highlight of the episodes for me.

well that Widmore was Daniel's FATHER (duh!) was a doubt of mine since we knew Widmore and Eloise were Others, and it became pretty much a certainty since so I was totally not surprised.

nah, as I see it, Dan died in his present (that happens to be 77) but that doesn't change his 'past' that is in 'regular' time.

we do see a lot of Jack skin lately, I agree. I know a couple fangirls really happy about that ;)

with his father being MIA and with Eloise and Widmore being on that island at around the time he would have been born, I had to guess he was his son, I was still a little--WHOA, when I heard him say it, but still, there was a hint he could be.

2. Daniel is dead, that's his present right now, it's almost like a record on a loop, his past is his past, but his present is in the 70's and dead.

3. NEVER PACK, seriously, it takes up too much time, it's like dialoging, --they always give away their motives or think they'll toy with who they have the gun on and what always happens, they get nailed before they can do anything.

Wah. I know!

I had the same thought! Of course Jack and Kate would be like, "Let's go get guns!" Poor Daniel.

*nods* Clearly, this is half-naked!Jack season! Not that I mind, given how often he was covered up before. I now think that either they or he himself didn't want to show his chest because it was too furry. Then it came "the Shave" (or wax, lol) and now he's naked all the time. ;)

Someone said Daniel could be Widmore's son when we saw Elios and Widmore together on the island. I didn't believe it, but this episode made it pretty obvious.
I am so, so sad that he died. future!Dan is still alive, but he's not going to do anything new - he did everything already (coming to the island, talking to Desmond, seeing Charlotte die). His story was maybe the most tragic of them all. *sighs*

Although, I was happy (again) with Jack, Sawyer and Juliet.

I totally missed half-naked Jack and I think I'm glad of it. Hairless Jack skeeves me out.

Ha, yeah. Packing is always a bad idea, absolutely!

I think Dan is dead. Stupid Lost.

I'm so sad to see Daniel go. He was so endearing.

it's when you've got to flee for your life DO NOT take the time to pack anything. JUST GO.

But when you've been living under a roof for three years with electricity and mac'n'cheese, it's hard to go back to a mango diet.

Good to see Jack doing *something* again besides mopping a floor and eating pancakes. Thank God action Jack is back. I think Daniel woke him up by explaining it all isn't predestined.

I know! And the first gander at his legs, which are quite nice! I only wish that contract had stipulated he had to grow his chest hair back.
