Lost Season Three: "One of Us"

Wow, what an episode

What I Liked:

  • And the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama goes to Elizabeth Mitchell. If she’s not nominated, I will be offended. And so should you.
  • Now pretty much everyone is back on the beach sans Locke.
  • Answers! Tons of answers*.
  • I think I’m finally okay with Sawyer and Kate being together
  • Jin has become quite snarky
  • Lots of Other-y goodness: Ben, Richard Alpert, Ethan, Goodwin, Mikhail
  • Juliet putting Sayid and Sawyer in their place

What I Didn’t Like

  • Okay, this isn’t really the writers’ fault and is actually a testament to their work but damnit, I really wanted Juliet to be good now and I wanted Jack to be right.

What We Learned:

  • Juliet really likes the song, “Downtown”
  • Juliet was dropped off at a private airport (Herarat Aviation) to begin her work for Mittelos Bioscience. She thought she was only going to be working for six months
  • She gets tranquilized and taken to the island via submarine where she meets Ben.
  • She is supposed to trying to get the Others women pregnant but they keep dying.
  • Pregnancy is fatal to women on the island
  • Juliet wanted to go home after it appeared her experiments were not working but Ben told her that her sister Rachel had a relapse and her cancer returned*. If Juliet stayed, Jacob would cure Rachel
  • In season one, when Claire was having those crazy dreams, it was Ethan taking blood samples because they were testing the theory if it was then island killing the women*
  • Ethan and Juliet were trying to save Claire’s life*
  • When Hurley discovered Ethan was an Other, he went rogue and kidnapped Claire on his own*
  • Juliet was in a relationship with Goodwin, the Other that Ana Lucia killed
  • “Carrie” was the book they were discussing in the book club
  • After the plane crashed, Mikhail pulled files on everyone on the plane
  • Richard videotaped Rachel with her son, Julian, and Ben showed Juliet that they were okay
  • The Others implanted something in Claire to make her sick so Juliet can appear to be a hero.
  • Juliet is still secretly working with the Others. The whole gas/handcuff thing was a plan by Ben. They are going to reconnect in one week
  • Getting Juliet away from whatever perm product she was using in Miami was the best thing that ever happened to her

Questions

  • Who is Jacob?
  • Is Jacob on the island?
  • Did Rachel’s cancer really return?
  • Was everything Juliet said about Ethan and Claire true?
  • Why did the Others kidnap all the children?
  • Why did Ben get cancer?
  • Is Juliet going to turn on The Others?
  • Is Sun going to die?
  • Is the fact that all the pregnant women die the reason Ben doesn’t want Alex with Karl in case she gets knocked up?
  • Is Desmond going to see a flash of The Others’ plan?
  • Has Kate finally made her decision to be with Sawyer?
  • Is Jack ever going to stop trying to protect women who don’t need his protection?
  • How does Jack get pussy whipped by women he’s never slept with?
  • Or is this another Jack plan he’s keeping to himself?
  • What is going to happen in one week?

  1. my question is, if all pregnant women on the island die how is it that rousseau is still alive? is alex really her daughter? did she not conceive on the island like claire? doesn’t make sense.

    also, there was some discussion last week about how juliet was lying because she was seen wearing a gas mask when kate looked out the window right before she was gassed. the question now is will kate remembering seeing her out there amongst the others.

    great episode. now i’m curious as to who was smacking locke around in the previews for next week.

    oh and i can’t believe sayid went out like a chump. get those answers, homie!

  2. nope she had alex on the island. from the transcript of “Exodus, Part I”:

    DANIELLE: Our ship went aground on this island 16 years ago. There were 6 of us — my team, 6. At that time I was already 7 months pregnant. I delivered the infant myself. The baby and I were together for only 1 week when I saw black smoke — a pillar of black smoke 5 kilometers inland. That night they came — they came and took her — Alex. They took my baby. And now, they’re coming again. They’re coming for all of you.

    so it looks like juliet’s on island hypothesis may be true.
