LOST 3.01: The Others have a gazebo
- The Others live in a cute little idyllic small town community on the island.
- The Others have a book club.
- There are at least two Dharma stations controlled by the others, The Hydra and The Monkey(?).
- Ben (fake Henry) is the leader of this group.
- Jack is a butt-bag.
- The Others have access to outside resources such as new technology (CD players) and personal information.
- The Others now have blood samples from at least five survivors.
- Juliet doesn't really like Ben and does little things to piss him off like choosing a book for the book club that he wouldn't like.
- The fake bearded Other named Tom is gay. How do I know this? He said Kate is not his type. Even I admit that Kate is smoking hot. I can't believe any straight man would not want her. Thus I assert that he is gay.
- Do they have a file on all of the survivors?
- Why do The Others stay there?
- Is the Others village part of the Utopian social something described in the Swan orientation film?
- Do they leave frequently or are they supplied? Who is supplying them?
- What do they want with Jack, Kate, and Sawyer?
- Why is it just the next two weeks that will be difficult for them?
- What did the Dharma group do with the dolphins and sharks in the Hyrda station?
- Are they really underwater?
- Did Jack's dad and his wife have an affair or were they just helping each other through difficult times?
Jack's in the cell pulling on that stupid chain like that's going to get him somewhere. Sawyer is focused on getting some stupid cracker from his cage, and Kate won't even talk to anyone practically.
Did it ever occur to any of them to say, "Hey, where are we?" "You know this was all an accident, is there any way we can go home?" "Can you tell me what's going on exactly? I'm uncertain as to why we even have a conflict."
But no Jack, just keep pulling on that chain and not eating. That's what's going to get you somewhere.
The thing about all our main characters is no one really wants to go home. Jack's life is crappy, Kate's going to jail, and Sawyer doesn't really have anything either. They all seem to just be in some basic instictual mode of wanting to be free.
