I abstained from the porn question because there was no Richard/Ben angstporn option! ;P

Ahhh. That is one option that would never have occurred to me! ;)

As a former Catholic religious-ish person, I saw a crap ton of religious references in this episode beyond the cross and the Bible (Such as Jacob dunking Richard three times like a baptism - or rebirth). It was pretty nifty. And I love watching Jacob/Esau duke it out. I have a feeling I'll be on pins and needles just waiting for someone to use Smokey's real name for the last seven episodes. I really expected to find out in Richard's episode.

I thought Richard would be younger, like we'd follow his childhood a little since that has always been a big Lost theme, before he was captured for the slave ship. I never really expected to see too much of his island life, but a lot of other people apparently did. I thought it would be strictly childhood-adult-Black Rock-very early island stuff. I wasn't too far off. And at least we know why his accent is so modern American now. Both Smokey and Jacob speak that way and those were his only companions for a long time.

Shoot, you know, the baptism angle did occur to me, but I forgot it by the time I got to the poll.

Smokey's real name is Esau, yes? Or am I missing something?

I was happy enough with Richard's story. I haven't read any fics that really filled it in in a more satisfying way so I wasn't disappointed like I was with, say, Jack in Thailand.

We call him Esau, but they've never said his name on the show. I think the fans chose it because it makes sense if you're taking Jacob's name from the Bible.'

And you're right, there were a lot of fantastic Thailand fics before the episode aired. I think I was hoping for something darker. Lots of card playing, hitting rock bottom, stumbling into a tattoo parlor. I thought about a few possibilities for Richard (New World, Egyptian). Spanish speaking Richard never occured to me, but I enjoyed it.

I didn't pick anything for the "hottest part" question because Richard speaking Spanish wasn't an option. :(

So now I kinda want fic where there was this ongoing Jacob/Richard thing going on and Richard tries to replace Jacob with Jack.

Dammit, sorry, m'dear. I meant to put that in! (The spanish speaking.)

So now I kinda want fic where there was this ongoing Jacob/Richard thing going on and Richard tries to replace Jacob with Jack.

I approve!
