Lost - "Maternity Leave"



Is M. Night Shyamalan writing the show? Because when I saw the outfits hanging in the locker and the theatrical glue, I immediately thought of The Village. I guess this raises questions about Dharma's real purpose there if they're putting on a show to distract from it. But why leave the clothes behind? And charging in there, assuming it was abandoned, not really the smartest idea, was it, ladies?

So Sawyer = not infected. No one is infected.

I want some of those happy drugs they were giving Claire.

And please, for the love of god, no more close-ups of Mira Furlan!!

Previews: I'm sorry, but Sun's line played out like a bad fanfic. Melodrama! Well, she won't be pregnant because I highly doubt they'll want to deal with two babies. Or she'll be pregnant and dramatically miscarry. Duh.

And Ana and Sayid teaming up? Just, no.

OK, now off to read everyone else's reactions.

Oh, crap. The Village! I was too hung up on how X Filesy this was.

Maybe that preview with Sun will be a bad dream. Ugh.

When they found the flashlights, I was like, "Wow, Scully and Mulder would have loved that," LOL.

Yeah, I'm hoping the Sun scenes won't play out as horribly as that preview made them look. They've been kind of hinting at a miscarriage or death of a child in Sun's past before. Maybe that will be part of her flashback. Is she up next for a flashback?

Perfect icon. ;D

I know, damn. Wish I could be that carefree while living in an underground bunker with my kidnappers on a deserted island O_o

Yeah. Ten to one they're faking us out again (Remember the Sawyer/Jack Death Match of season one? No? You don't? That's because it NEVER HAPPENED. Eff you, promo monkeys).

I liked Happy!DruggedOut!Claire. I'd like to see Jack on those drugs. Hee.

*and thus a fanfic bunny is born*

OMG, everyone gets the happy drugs! Orgy! LOL.

And oh yeah, damn promo monkeys. And would she suffer the embarrassment of asking Sawyer for a pregnancy test or just wait it out? I guess on this show, that would be a whole 'nother season before she knew. *sighs* I hate the timeline.

(And wait, have you seen "The Long Con?" ... rest is kind of spoilery, although if you saw this ep then... maybe not so much.)

And I kind of hate Sawyer still having a stash (besides the guns). The return of the Tired Sawyer Plot Device. :-/ Except I thought he stole the guns because he didn't have a stash anymore?!!

Looks like crap, doesn't she?

And I loved her so much as Delen.

I guess that's called "brave" when an actress lets herself look so crappy. She just really creeps me out. :-/

Awwwww, no love for Mira? Me sad.

Happy drugs. Yeah, that would have helped during this episode. Hee.

Women bounding into the hatch? NUTS

Sun preggo? LAME

and I miss your Sawyer header :(

But, loved the episode!

Hee. You've stumbled across the stash of happy drugs, haven't you? ;D I honestly kept expecting them to run into someone. There was kind of a lack of immediate danger in this ep.

And aww, no love for the new(ish) header? :-/ I thought it was time for a change. I'll probably change it up again fairly soon.

I don't think they'll make Sun pregnant. But I think they're going to make Sawyer feel guilty for what he and Charlie did to her, because if she was pregnant, she was pregnant when Charlie attacked her. So...

Sayid and Ana teaming up...weird. "You killed the woman I love. Let's solve the mysteries of this island together!" Yeah, right. I wouldn't want anything to do with her if I was Sayid. Or if I were me for that matter.

I think we're going to find out she's been pregnant the whole time (it's only been two months of island time) -- although I was just theorizing that's why she stayed with Jin and maybe that's overreaching, unless she's maybe three or four months pregnant. But yes, Charlie's attack could have ended up making her lose the baby. She's going to have to miscarry because she'd be pregnant for several seasons if she were going to stay pregnant. And that's just ridiculous!

Well, maybe this is where Ana gets pushed off a cliff. I'll be fast-forwarding through her scenes, definitely. And yay, she wasn't even in this ep. Hurrah!

On the podcast they were saying that they wanted to bring Sawyer back to his roots..of being a little darker and more kind of self-centered and willing to pull cons when he needed it.

And Zeke..does he think that the costumes make him more scary..dude, they are living on an island for years and have killed people for basically no reason..they are scary enough..no make-up necessary.

I just want to know one thing, where in the hell or why in the hell would they have a pregnancy test..Desmond and I'm guessing the other person in that hatch were male.

In two weeks..a ton of Ana..and the saddest thing..they don't even know they are being manipulated by Mr. Gale.

they don't even know they are being manipulated by Mr. Gale.

Well, IMO, that's still up in the air, too. He could be completely manipulating them all, yes...or, he could simply be manipulating Locke in order to get in good with him and use him to escape. I'm still fairly convinced he's neither who he says is nor an Other. But if they turn the search for his balloon into the new raft, I'll be disappointed. That's kind of lame.

First, Sun preggers DOES equal bad fanfic. Blargh. Haven't we been dealing with that possiblility in fandom over a year now?

So Sawyer = not infected. No one is infected.

But how can you be so sure? Maybe Aaron got better because he'd had the injections prior to Claire escaping.
halfdutch
Mar. 2nd, 2006 05:15 pm (UTC)
Ugh. I know. Pregnancy plotlines are just annoying. As I was just saying, no way she can be pregant and stay pregnant because that would go on for several seasons, if they keep to this same snail's pace timeline.

If Aaron had been vaccinated against the infection, he wouldn't get it in the first place, though, I imagine. So it seems like it really wasn't *the* infection.

And as far as Sawyer being infected, I still just chalk up the frog incident to bad writing. I wouldn't be surprised if one of them *is* infected, I just wish they'd reveal it already. With the show's slow timeline and all these hiatuses, we're always so far ahead of them in guessing most plot points that the "oh no, one of them is secretly infected" storyline seems kind of old hat since there was so much rampant spec about it right after 'Solitary' and then nothing for months and months. Eh, the nature of a rabid fandom and a show with 300 subplots, I guess.

I kinda liked the episode *hides* I like the way that Claire's flashbacks weren't pre-island, like I thought they would be - cause there isn't much more of her story pre-island to tell I think. I have mixed feeling about the Sun thing, because, at least she's married and it's not just some wild "omg we're on an island, let's have monkey sex - oh crap preggers" thing, but I don't think it will be like the promos make it out to be.

It was the first time we didn't go off the island for the flashbacks and I did like that. She's just not that rich of a character to have more of a storyline, other than being Aaron's mom, though. :-/

And since they've already had faux incest and killed off Shannon right after she had sex, I don't think we'll be getting any more premarital nookie on the island. Thank god for fanfic! And they've kind of been hinting all along at some baby issue with Sun, only I took it to mean she couldn't have children or had a miscarriage in the past, not that she was likely pregnant now. Darn confusing timeline, LOL.

WORD!

You'd think Kate, of all people, who lowered herself/was lowered into another certain hatch and was forced at gun point by the inhabitant thereof might be a teensy weensy bit cautious about going into and exploring a hatch on this island, maybe? I was totally expecting someone to jump out for much of the underground exploration there.

Ethan was able to kidnap Claire pretty easily first time around, practically murdered Charlie, murdered Steve or Scott (bad me, forgot myself, sorry guy), yet wasn't able to take Claire back, and no other Others were either? WTF?

Still liked this ep, tho.

Mar. 2nd, 2006 09:24 pm (UTC)
I know! Everyone on the island has impaired short-term memory, apparently, LOL. Their story/continuity editor is really falling down on the job. They know their fans are smart and pore over every detail, so why not smarten things up a bit? And yeah, Ethan's abilities seem to change from ep to ep.

Oh well, we'd find something to nitpick anyway. If you ever go over to the TWOP boards, you'll still find newbies bitching about the lack of body hair on the women, etc. I think we can make some concessions that it's a TV show after all. ;-D

I would like to know what writers are smoking and where I can me some,because this sounded real bad.Sun asking Sawyer for pregnancy test-ridiculous at least!Just no.

It came off really badly, like Lifetime Movie bad! :-/ I'm guessing she's been pregnant this whole time.

And I'd like to know what the writers have been smoking this season!
