Some Lost spec (very belated)

So I've been too disappointed in this season to get involved in any hardcore spec so far. But now a few things occur to me that have probably already been discussed to death.

- Why was the hatch outfitted with so many guns?
To defend themselves against polar bears? And how interesting it is that *everyone* on the island has come with their own gun stash. Just makes for better drama so I can't say I disapprove. ;-D

- Did I miss what happened to Kelvin's partner? It was a two-man job, right? Kelvin died but what about his partner before that?

- Shoot, I forget whose spec this was now (corellianjedi maybe?) but was Danielle's hijacking of the signal what prevented Kelvin's replacement from showing up? Because no one heard the call? Or did the institute just dissolve?

- Is anyone ever coming? Because at one point someone knew about the island's existence and how to get there and back, to set up the hatch. But after 25 years, the institute's existence seems shaky at best. I guess I'm wondering is the abandonment of the experiment intentional or accidental? Or is the experiment still going on, with new participants?

- And lastly (a bit of fangirling). So far Walt has appeared to Shannon and Jin appeared to Hurley in a dream. Why can't Sawyer appear to Jack! Ok, we got that in a bit of fanfic by holycitygirl, but still ...! Or he could appear to Kate! Why can't the people left behind be wondering and worrying about the fate of the raft or are they too in denial, you think? I guess this week may change that.

Note: I'm *not* spoiled for this week beyond vague rumblings so I'd appreciate keeping it that way. Thanks!

I'd love to see Sawyer appear in either Jack or Kate's dream or halucination or anything, for that matter (though it'd prolly be more dramtic with Jack).

My theory is that the Dahrma peeps will only show up once the button's not being pushed anymore.

I'd love to see someone hallucinating Sawyer! Besides us fangirls, LOL!

Ah, so you think Dharma is still monitoring it? Veddy interesting! I got the idea it was completely abandoned and no one in the real world knows about them ... except how do you explain the food shipments?

Sawyer *needs* to appear to Jack in a dream. If only to make fun of him for pushing that dumb button over and over. Sawyer is totally the skeptical side of Jack's brain. Oooh, bunny.

I know! Great bunny! It's already been done (somewhat) though which made me a little sad, LOL!

But there can't be enough new J/S can there? Damn, we have to work extra hard to get them together in new canon!

I doubt anyone is coming, but that's just me. I don't thnk it's because the institute is crumbling, I think it's because no one was supposed to come after Kelvin.

So do you think that they're still being monitored? Or were they ever? Because Desmond had eggs and all, that indicates regular food shipments. Is rescue just around the corner, potentially? LOL.

And you have the perfect icon for it too! ;-D

You know, I was just thinking (in my search for the perfect icon to use) that Jack is all knee-deep in island mysteries and Sawyer is still dealing with things that are almost regular TV drama. Apart from the whispering (and the polar bear), Sawyer's storylines have been all character-driven and could be happening on *any* desert island. Maybe that's *another* reason I love him so much.

You know what hit me last night? The bottle they used for the messages...where did that come from? Don't they usually use the small bottles or splits of champagne or whatever on planes?

Or maybe it was in someone's luggage...just struck me as odd.

I also don't remember if Desmond said that he was the only one to survive...?

I thought of that too. I think someone had a wine bottle in their luggage as gift. Australian wines are quite nice. ;-D Lord knows I've written Sawyer swigging on a fullsize bottle of whiskey so I fanwanked the packing of teh big booze. ;-D

I guess I should go back and watch the eps or read a transcript!

Marshall's guns for the plane, the gun locker for Desmond, the rifle stash for Danielee...yeesh, you're right. That is one gun-happy island we got there.

Maybe Dharma's just a front for the NRA?

Bwaha! ;-D I'm surprised that only Sawyer and Ethan have been shot so far. (Well, apart from Danielle's crew, presumably.)

Is anyone ever coming?

Well, I read that JJ or someone said that the show was after called "Lost", not "Island", and that it therefore is very likely that they can get off, but still be lost.

Maybe Dharma was some kind of anti-goverment organization or something, so nobody but the people in it really knew what they were doing, so when everyone were eaten by polarbears it just.. died?

Interesting. I always thought if they got off the island, that would be the end of the show.

I was under the impression that Dharma was no longer around, so that the experiment and the people on the island had just been abandoned. The other option is that the experiment is still going and it's being monitored in some way which is much more sinister. Either way - not a happy fun, fun organization!

And see this has been a problem for me since Claire disappeared last year. It seemed like only Charlie and Boone were actively looking for her or gave a damn. Everyone else was too busy angsting or in Locke's case giving people the runaround. Grrrr!
I can't watch this year. I...I just can't. I'm keeping up through you guys and televisionwithoutpity.com but I can't put myself through it. Especially with Veronica Mars being on at the same time.
Meh.
