TABULA RASA

Let's talk about LOST!  Tabula Rasa.

Claire and the survivors are on the beach going through luggage.

The Marshal tells Jack "Don't trust her. She's dangerous."
Jack- "Try not to move, man."
The Marshal keeps saying they/he have to find her, they/he have to bring her back.
Jack-"Every time I ask you who you have to bring back, you pass out on me again.  Since your fever is running pretty high, I'm guessing you have no idea who the hell you're talking about."
The Marshal, who now seems lucid, wants to know where his handcuffs are. He has Jack get something from his jacket pocket. It is a mug shot flyer. Again he tells Jack she's dangerous. Jack looks troubled.
Kate and the transceiver group trek back to the beach. Kate looks sad and troubled.
Boone comments that it's getting dark.
Sawyer -"Then pick up the pace."
Boone calls him a name {dick, I think}.
Sawyer-"A little louder."
Sayid suggests they make camp there. Sawyer doesn't want to stop so Sayid tells him to have a nice walk through the jungle in the dark.
Sawyer- "Ooooh. Afraid the tress are gonna get us?"
Sayid- "No. What is knocking down the trees will get you."
Maybe Sawyer should have the clip for the gun back. Kate tells him to put the gun back in his pants.
Kate confirms, "Sayid's right, you keep walking, you're not gonna make it to the beach."
Why, does she know something?
Kate-"Trust me."

Night:
Sayid uses a rock (to represent Australia) and a torch (to represent them/us) as visual aids,"This is Australia. This is us."
Sawyer-"Nice stick."
Sayid continues- "Two days ago we take off from Sydney.   We fly along the same north east route every commercial airliner bound for Los Angeles does."
Kate confirms the pilot says he lost communication with the ground six hours in; he turned around and headed for Fiji.   No one knew they changed course. The turbulence hit, "We know the rest."
Kate-"The pilot said we were 1,000 miles off course."
Charlie feels they'll find us, "They have satellites in space that can take pictures of your license plate."
Sayid- "If only we were all wearing license plates." Basic photography, point and shoot. Satellites can shoot, but must be told where to point.
Charlie- "Oh. Bullocks."
Sawyer-"Okay. Really enjoyed the puppet show. Fantastic...we're stuck in the middle of damn nowhere. How 'bout we talk about that other thing."
He refers to the transmission Abdul picked up on the radio with the French chick that said "They're all dead."  The 16 year loop. "Let's talk about that."
No one says anything about that.
Boone- "Well. We have to tell the others when they get back." But tell them what; they don't know what they heard after all Shannon's not a stupid translator.
Sayid suggests they don't say anything, "To relay what we heard, without fully understanding it, will cause a panic. If we tell them what we know, we take away their hope. And hope is a very dangerous thing to lose."
Kate-"So we lie."

Hurley asks Jack "Was it a dinosaur?"
Jack says it wasn't.
Hurley-"You say you didn't see it."
Jack- "I didn't."
They are busy making a tent to shelter the Marshal. Jack educates Hurley about knowing it wasn't a dinosaur because they are extinct.
Hurley-"Oh. Yeah."
Hurley asks what the Marshal's story is; he looks kind of...dying, and yellow.
Jack says he's not going to die.   His wound is infected; the antibiotics will fight it off.   If not, his body will shut down, one piece at a time. His abdomen goes rigid then..."
Hurley-" He looks like he's in pain."
Hurley picks up Kate's mug shot and wonders what she did; she looks pretty hard core.
Jack doesn't know; it's none of his business.

All of the transceiver group is sleeping except for Boone. He steals the clip from Sayid. Sayid wakes up.
Boone claims he's standing guard, "You heard what they said's out there."
Boone also took the gun from Sawyer.
Shannon is upset because Boone has never held a gun, doesn't believe in guns, "He goes on marches."
Boone-"I don't go on marches."
There's an argument about Sawyer's misuse of the word Aljazeera {the network}.
Shannon suggests Kate hold the gun. They all agree.
{Flash Whoosh}
...A rifle is pulled on "Kate" in Australia as she sleeps in Ray Mullens sheep pen. {Ray hold rifle in left hand. There are lockers on the back wall.}  She says she walked from the nearest town; 15 kilometers.
She tells Ray her name is Annie.
Ray feeds her bacon, eggs and coffee and he asks her why she's trespassing on his property. She says she's from Canada and she ran out of money. She graduated from college and wanted to see the world; Australia was tops on her list so she hoped a flight to Melbourne.    She doesn't know anybody "here", so she figured she'd walk for a while.
Ray states that "Melbourne's a hundred kilometers from here."
She likes walking and she likes farms too; knows how to work one. Ray's wife died 8 months earlier. {He still wears wedding ring} He offers her a fair wage and a place to stay if she helps with the chores. She agrees to the "Deal."
She wants to "Shake" on it, but Ray shows he has a prosthetic right arm. He's a lefty.
(Check out the arms!)
Hurley runs to tell Jack, who is still tending to the marshal, that they're back.

Sayid gathers the survivors around to recap the trek, "As you and the others know, I hiked up the mountain in an attempt to help the rescue team locate us. The transceiver failed to pick up a signal. We weren't able to send out a call for help."  They won't give up.  He has everyone gather up all their electronic equipment, he can boost the signal and try again.    It may take time so he gives instructions to ration remaining food and gather rain water.   He needs to organize three separate groups; each group should have a leader. 1 group for water. {He'll organize that}
Sayid asks, "Who's going to organize electronics?" {Why not Sayid? That's fucked up!}
Jack is relieved to see Kate.
Kate needs to tell him something. She tells them about the blocking signal preventing them from sending a signal.
Kate- "It was a distress call from a French woman. She said that the others were dead. That something had killed them all. She was alone on the Island. It's been playing for 16 years, Jack."
She felt she wanted to tell him.
Jack asks if there's anything else she wants to tell him.  Kate looks back at the tent housing the Marshal and asks how he is, "He wake up?"
Jack-"Just for a few seconds during the surgery."
He lies to Kate and says the Marshal didn't say anything.

As Hurley and Jack are moving two plane seats, Hurley wants to know what Kate said; since they know about the mug shot, the cuffs and that guy keeps saying she's dangerous.
Jack tells him again, "I don't know anything." It's not his business, it's not his problem.
Hurley- "Yeah, you're right. We'll let Johnny Fever take care of her when he gets better."
Only he's not getting better, he needs stronger antibiotics.
The stuff Hurley gave him was for ear infections and foot fungus; apparently they went through everything. Jack asks about the luggage in the overhead compartments.  Hurley won't go in there with the dead bodies.    Hurley will keep an eye on...Jack will handle it.

Jack with a flashlight, looks for meds in the dark fuselage. Jack hears a noise.
"Boo." It's Sawyer trick or treating.
Jack calls it looting. He wants to know what's in Sawyers bag.
Sawyer has Booze, smokes and a couple of Playboy, "What's in yours?"
Jack-"Medicine."
Jack wonders if this what he does back home too, "Steal from the dead?"
Sawyer- "Brother. You gotta wake up... Rescue aint coming."
Sawyer feels Jack's wasting his time trying to save that guy. He also asks how many of those pills is he going to use to fix him up.
Sawyer says to Jack, "YOU'RE JUST NOT LOOKING AT THE BIG PICTURE, Doc. You're still in civilization." And he's in the wild.

On the beach Charlie uses the wheelchair to cart luggage. He helps Claire. Charlie comments about the wheelchair, "Well, look on the bright side. Whose ever this was is probably better off than we are."

Sun thinks she found Jin's bag.   Jin checks it but it's not his. He tells Sun she looks filthy, she needs to wash up. As she walks way he says "I love you." She forces a smile back.

Charlie asks Claire how the baby is and discovers there is no man in her life.   That's very modern of her. Claire makes a comment about those guys hiking up the mountain for nothing.

Hurley runs out of the tent carrying three empty water bottles, right into Kate. He nervously tells her he was going to get water. They haven't met before; Kate introduces herself. She was looking for Jack. Jack went to get medicine from the fuselage. Kate has a gun sticking out of her pants back waist band. This makes Hurley even more nervous. He pretty much runs away from her. {He looks back when he runs}



Rain hits the beach and everyone tries to take cover and gather rain water.
Kate enters the Marshal's tent.
As she leans over him {Apparently check if he's conscious} he appears to be out....{FLASH}.... Annie hides her wages in the pantry behind the wall in a tin can. {Pear jars dated 2003 and 2004} She's on the run again. Ray turns on the light and catches her. He would have held on to the money for her but she has trust issues.
Annie wrote Ray a note in place of saying goodbye.   She's been with Ray almost three months. Every time Ray asks her questions about herself she gets that look in her eye.
Ray convinces her to stay 1 more night; offers to drive her to the train station in the morning.
Ray-"I get it you. Everyone deserves a fresh start."……The marshal wakes up and chokes Kate. Jack breaks it up.
Jack asks Kate "What did you do?"
She was just checking him.
Jack gives the Marshal water and explains that he's not responding to antibiotics, he's bleeding internally, his fever is pushing 104 and his abdomen is ridged. Jack leaves to get him more water.

Outside the tent Kate asks Jack "What are you going to do about it?" {About him} She asks if he'll suffer and will it be quick.
Jack explains it won't be quick; it could take 2, 3 may be 4 days, and he'll feel it.    Kate wants Jack to put him out of his misery.
Jack admits he saw her mug shot.
Jack–"I am NOT A MURDERER."

{Flash}
Annie rides passenger in Ray's old red truck. If You've Got Leaving on Your Mind, by Patsy Cline plays on the radio. Rays cutely asks if they listen to Patsy Cline in Canada. She tells him they listen to Patsy Cline everywhere. He offers her a burger she declines saying she'll eat on the train. She notices Ray keeps checking the rear view mirror.   She asks what he's looking for.  She sees in the side view mirror a big black SUV approaching fast. She now realizes Ray "knows".    He admits to knowing for a couple of days. He saw her picture in the post office, "I guess they knew you were down under"   Ray needs the reward money, $23,000 to pay for the mortgage. She confesses her name's not Annie. {Ray still wears wedding ring} The Marshal pulls right next to Kate's side of the truck opens the window and does the ol pulls the make believe gun/trigger gesture at her………

Kate stands in the rain on the beach.
Walt plays with three white rocks and a plane part. {Makes a slide-like game} Michael and Walt talk about the bald guy Mr. Locke. Michael asks if Mr. Locke "got any kids?"
He didn't say.
Michael wants to know what he said.
Walt tells him "Some of its secret."
Michael-"Did he tell you not to tell me?"
No, he didn't. Michael pushes to know the secret.
Walt says that Mr. Locke said, "A miracle happened to him."
{BUT DOES NOT SAY WHAT THE MIRACLE WAS OR REVEAL ANYTHING!}
Michael tosses up miracle to the fact it's a miracle they all survived a plane crash. Michael wants Walt to stop hanging around with Locke but Walt feels that Locke's his friend.
Michael- "I'm your friend too."
Walt with attitude says, "If you were my friend you'd find Vincent."
Michael- "I haven't given up on your dog. I'm gonna do everything I can to find him."
Walt gets confrontational telling Michael he won't find the dog, he doesn't care about Vincent. Michael-"I'm gonna get your dog back.   As soon as it stops raining.  Listen to me. I'm gonna get your dog back."
And just like that THE RAIN STOPS.

Michael {Red leash} walks through the jungle talking to himself, mocking the coincidence about looking for Vincent "when it stops raining...I'm gonna find your dog. I'm just gonna go walking through the haunted damn jungle, looking for your..."
He hears something. "Vincent!?"
He hears grunts and growls. "Hey Vincent, that you, Buddy?" More growls. Michael runs away as if something is chasing him.   He runs until he comes upon Sun who is topless, washing up. Uncomfortable, he tries to explain to her in English that something was chasing him. He doesn't hear it now. He warns her she should probably head back. He picks up her top and hands it to her. {Why?} "I didn't see anything."
As he walks away he says again "If you're worried about it, I didn't see anything."
She looks back, watches him walk away.

The Marshal is suffering; he's yelling/crying out in pain.  Everyone hears  him.

Charlie sits by Locke who is whittling a dog whistle. {Because he's Walt's REAL friend}
Charlie tells him he used some tribal flutes once in a recording session. He's in a band.
Locke doesn't acknowledge him.

Anxious Shannon tells Boone she wishes he {the Marshal} would just die already.

Sayid offers assistance to Jack.
He whispers to Jack, "The others are getting upset. They want to know what's going on inside the tent."
Jack- "I'm trying to save his life."
Sayid- "Rumor has it, you can't." {WTF?! Who started this rumor? Who would know Jack can't?}

Night:
The Marshal still yells out, suffering in agony.  Kate, about to light a fire, discovers no matches. Sawyer, on cue, offers her a light. {He has a lighter.} He came by to thank her for taking that gun away from him. She says she didn't take it away from him.
Sawyer-"It's stickin' out of your denims, aint it?"
He's glad he's not the one with the gun right now. With the poor boy screaming all night, he knows what's got to be done, "The only one that can do it, it the one with that gun."
He tells her not to act so surprised, "I heard you tell the hero the same thing…. Hell, there's only one bullet left. It'd be damn near poetic."
Jack is still tending to the dying Marshal. The marshal wants Jack to listen to him, "No matter what she does, no matter how she makes you feel, don't trust a word that she says. She will do anything to get away."
Jack asks what she did.
The Marshal doesn't say what it was; he wants to talk to her, alone. Jack doesn't respond.
The Marshal notes, "She got to you too."
Outside Kate just stares at the marshal's tent....
{FLASH}...The Marshal gives her the make believe gun/trigger gesture. Ray sees another car headed for them. The Marshal drops back behind them. Once clear from the passing car, the chase is on. Kate spins the truck out causing it to rollover and down a hill. She saves Ray from the fiery crash, pulling his prosthetic arm from his shirt. The marshal apprehends Kate. At the top of the road, a truck honks by and Ray wakes up. The Marshal pulls a gun on Kate.
Kate talks with the Marshal in his tent. He wonders what the favor was she was going to ask him for when they were on the plane... {FLASH}...Kate and the Marshal on the plane during the turbulence. {Again watch the marshals face with the turbulence.} She has one favor to ask. The plane starts its break up, etc.
Kate wanted to be sure Ray Mullen got his 23 grand; Yeah,  the guy who ratted her out.
The Marshal-"You really are one of a kind."
He goes on to say she would have got away if she didn't save him.
Kate- "In case you didn't notice, I did get away."
Marshal- "You don't look free to me….Kate, I'm gonna die, right?"

Hurley asks Jack "Where's the fugitive?"
Jack informs him "In the tent. What's she gonna do, she's 120lbs soaking wet".
Hurley reveals that she has a gun. Concerned Jack runs toward the tent to make sure Kate wasn't going to kill the Marshal. He's relieved to see Kate walk out of the tent. A shot rings out! It's Sawyer who leaves the tent having done the deed. He shot the Marshal in the chest; trying to hit his heart but it doesn't kill him.
Sawyer tells Jack the Marshal wanted it, "Hell, he asked me."

Inside the tent Jack tells Sawyer he perforated his lung, it will take the Marshal hours bleed out. Sawyer missed shooting him in the heart; He only had one bullet. Jack kicks Sawyer out.
Sawyer tries to smoke but his cigarette won't light.
After a minute we don't hear anything coming from the Marshal. Jack walks out of the tent with blood on his hands. Jack is upset, he doesn't say a word.

Daylight on the beach:
Locke sits on the beach facing the jungle. He blows into the whistle he made four times. He hears something. It's Vincent! {Collar on. Blue dog tag}
Locke walks through the wreckage to where Michael and Walt are sleeping in the sun.
Locke wakes up Michael, "Shhh. I found your sons dog. Vincent. I tethered him to a tree just over there."
Locke tells him he knows Walt lost his mom so he thought it would be best Michael should be the one to bring his dog back to him. {Wink.}

Jack sits on the beach looking out to the water.
Kate joins him; she wants to confess what she did and why he was after her.
Jack -"I don't wanna know. It doesn't matter, Kate, who we were, what we did before this, before the crash. It doesn't really...Three days ago we all died. We should all be able to start over."
Okay. {WTF? Is he giving up on rescue already?}

Hurley dumps sand out of his sneaker while listening to Wash Away on the CD player. The survivors are going about their new lives on the beach.
Jin wipes his hands, checks on sleeping Sun; tenderly touches/moves her hair.
Boone gives Shannon a fixed pair of sunglasses.
Sayid tosses fruit to Sawyer.
Charlie puts new tape on his fingers. {Permanent marker}
Claire sits and talks to her tummy.
Michael brings Vincent back to Walt. Walt is very happy.
Locke sits very quietly watching....watching them! Then...as the last note rings out on Wash Away into the LOST music, and that last note rings out, listen to the sounds very carefully. {With headphones if necessary} As the camera pans around from behind Locke to the front of Locke... Monster sounds.... Interesting, huh?! Hmmmmmmmm. Yeah!

Thing to note...Questions to ask...
  • Kate says she's from Canada. What is Kate's role, really? Dangerous, how? Where's page 1 of her mug shot flyer? She's cunning and clever. Is she capable of crashing a plane to get away?
  • Kate/Annie likes orange shirts. Lol
  • The Dahli Lama wears orange. (And red)

  • The passenger and driver seats in Rays truck are opposite from the way they are the States.
  • Down. Under. Slide down.
  • In the wild"...as opposed to being in cages or domesticated? 
  • Parts of the body will shut down one at a time.
  • Walk. Walking.
  • Michael seems troubled regarding Walt and Mr. Locke.
  • Michael and Sun. I think they have a connection.

Tabula Rasa is a Great episode! We have our Lostie's arriving on the "Island" and are able to leave behind "everything", getting a clean slate.
More to it, I think so. What do you think?
For example, Jack may have added something very interesting to his CLEAN SLATE....ironic isn't it?
You'll hear the Lostie's say things like..."In a former life I was..." or "In the real world I did..."
Pay attention to things like that.

The story gets told to us through metaphors, word play, using subliminal  and  lesser simpler situations to make us "real into" what the bigger picture really is.  Our clues will come from not only what we are seeing in the scene, but VERY much from the dialogue.    The words and phrases that are used are huge clues.  So many things are right in front of our eyes. So don't just look at the show, really see what's there. Look deeper!

A "Clean slate", a "New beginning", a "New life", "Start over" and a "Do-Over". I point this out because of my thoughts of the survivors doing just that, re-living things over.

Love to all who are "LOST"™

DISCLAIMER: I never claim to know everything about the show and my thoughts by no means make me right! Things I share here are my views and/or opinions. I don't claim to catch every single detail either. I hate spoilers! I stand clear of reading certain sites, as to not take me off my own research. The one thing I don't need to do here is rehash all of the obvious clues from an episode, we all know what they are. Good! I'll only note things that I know come up as clues in bold.

PILOT part 2

Let's talk about LOST!     Pilot. Part 2

Jack, Charlie and Kate walk through the jungle from their monster eats the pilot trek. Charlie keeps asking Jack if he’s getting anything on the transceiver; Jack's not getting anything. Charlie reminds him that before the pilot was ripped from the cockpit he did say that no one will find them unless they get that transceiver working.
Still nothing.
Kate wonders Charlie what he was doing in the bathroom. Charlie informs her he was getting sick “My one tangible contribution to the trek.”
Kate is happy that Charlie came.
Charlie- “Every trek needs a coward.”
Kate- “You’re not a coward.”
Charlie stops; you can see his mind start to “think”.

{Flash}
Charlie is in the plane. He sits nervously in his seat tapping his DS ring on the arm of his aisle {isle} seat. He has headphones around his neck. Stewardess Cindy asks him if he’s alright. Charlie says he’s good. She offers him water but he declines the offer. Cindy, noticing his behavior, seems troubled by it so she tells the other stewardess. Charlie gets out of his seat and rushes to the bathroom in the front of the plane. He passes by Jack, Rose and Locke. He tries the doors to two lavatories but they are locked. Then literally walks right through Boone and Shannon’s row moving on ahead to first class. Cindy tries to get Charlie to get back to his seat. The plane takes a bit of a dive; the fasten seatbelt signs light up. Cindy, wanting Charlie back in his seat, announces this order from the Captain. Charlie goes into the lav and locks himself in. He removes his right size 8 black and white vans sneaker and takes out stashed heroin.


A male stewardess bangs on the door asking if he’s alright; they want him to open the door. Charlie uses a bit of the drug. Charlie touches and looks deep into the mirror. He’s high. He purposefully drops the rest of the heroin in the toilet. The stewardesses are still banging on the door for him. As Charlie’s about to flush away the drugs…turbulence! Charlie flies upward! He gets out of the bathroom and avoids getting hit with a rolling beverage cart and makes it to an empty window seat. He belts himself in and puts on mask.

Shannon sunbathes in an orange bikini among the wreckage. {As if nothing is wrong.} Boone tells her they are going through bags sorting clothes. He sees that Shannon found her bag. Shannon doesn’t want to give them a hand, “You’re wasting your time. They’re coming.”
Claire, with a cut on her chin asks Shannon if that’s her boyfriend. Shannon reveals it’s her brother Boone “Gods friggin gift to humanity.”
Pregnant Claire shares, “I used to have a stomach.”
Shannon looks at her and asks, “Do you know what it is?”
Claire-“Not yet.” She hasn’t felt the baby move since yesterday. Shannon doesn’t acknowledge her concern.

Sun watches Jin collect food from the water. Michael comes from behind “Aaaa. Excused me…Uh, Hey…Have you seen my boy?”
Sun replies in Korean. Jin watches Michael with Sun and he demands she button up the top of her sweater. Michael realizes Jin is controlling says he’s sorry and walks away calling out for “Walt.”

Walt holding a red leash is in the jungle calling out for Vincent; only he’s not yelling the name, he’s loudly whispering it, “Come here boy.”
No Vincent.
Walt finds a pair of handcuffs on the ground. Michael finds Walt and is upset, “What did I tell you after everything that’s happened?”   Walt explains he thought that maybe Vincent would be around. But Michael told Walt to stay on the beach. Michael insists Walt listen to him, “I mean what I say.”
Michael takes the newly discovered handcuffs from Walt; his eyes search for something in the jungle. They walk off.

Sayid and Sawyer are in a fist fight on the beach. Jack breaks it up; Michael helps separate them. Apparently Sawyer accuses Sayid of crashing the plane, “If the shoe fits, Buddy!”

Michael presents the cuffs that his kid found in the jungle to Jack. Sawyer tells us that “This guy was sitting in the back row of business class the whole flight, never got up. Hands folded underneath the blanket.”
Sayid thanks him for observing his behavior. Sawyer also mentions that he saw them pull him out of line before they boarded.
Kate yells for them to stop, “We found the transceiver but it’s not working. Can anybody help?” { and just like that the fight is over.}
Sayid may be able to help. Sawyer makes a big deal about trusting this guy. Hurley suggests they treat each other with a little respect.
Sawyer tells “Lardo” to shut up. Jack tells Sawyer to give it a break.
Sawyer-‘Whatever you say Doc. You’re the hero.”
Boone asks Jack if there were any survivors at the cockpit.

Sayid announces the transceiver is duel band military spec; chances are the battery is good but the radio is dead.
Kate asks “Can you fix it?”
Sayid-“I need some time.”
Rose tells Jack he should take a look at the man with the shrapnel.

Sayid opens up the transceiver. Hurley sits next to him and complains about the chain smoking redneck. Sayid comments some people have problems, referring to the redneck.
Hurley-“Some people have problems. Us...Him.”
Hurley thinks Sayid’s OK, “I like you.”
They shake hands and introduce themselves. Sayid admits to Hurley he knows how do to all the radio stuff, because he was a military communications officer.
Hurley-“You ever see battle?”
Sayid fought in the gulf war. Hurley’s got a buddy who fought over there; he was in the 104th Airborne.
Hurley-“ What were you? Air Force? Army?”
Sayid shares that he served in the Republican Guard.
Kate stands alone in the water washing herself. Sun gets her attention; she is trying to tell her something but only communicates in Korean. Sun points in a direction. Kate nods her head yes/Okay, as to tell her she understands.

Kate meets up with Sayid on the beach. The transceiver seems to be working except they’re not picking up a signal. Kate wonders why he wants to receive a signal when they need to send a signal.
Sayid explains “What you want to see here is little bars. The bars would show the radio’s getting reception.”
They need the bars.
Sayid-“We could broadcast blind. Hope that someone, maybe a ship somewhere picks up our distress call. But that would be a waste of the battery.” Which may not last too long. Sayid suggests they try getting a signal from higher ground.

Jack tends to the shrapnel guy (the marshal); he’s bleeding very badly. Kate {No scratches on face} watches and then asks how the guys doing. Jack was hoping he’d be at a hospital by now so he needs to think about removing the shrapnel; he needs to find antibiotics. Kate informs him she’s going on a hike as they need to get the fixed transceiver to send a signal.
Jack is upset, “Kate, you saw what that thing did to the pilot.”
She did.
Kate-“What makes you think we’re any safer here than we are in the jungle?”  Jack wants her to wait for him, but of course they can’t because Sayid said the battery won’t last. Jack concedes and tells Kate of she sees or hears anything “Run

Jin cuts up sea food and Sun helps. Jin is very particular on what he allows Sun to do; he actually slaps her hand as if she’s a child that’s done wrong. Without saying a word he takes the seafood tray from Sun and walks away. Sun rebelliously opens the top button on her sweater. Jin, speaking Korean, offers food to Hurley who is washing his plaid shirt in the water. Even though Hurley admits to starving, he refuses the food.

Walt is reading a comic book written in Spanish. The Flash and the Green Lantern- Faster Friends. Michael asks him if he reads Spanish. Walt says no; he found it. Michael offers Walt that when they get home he’ll get him another dog. Without saying a word Walt takes Vincent’s red leash, the comic book and storms away from Michael.

Charlie kneels down by a tree and pours out some of the heroin in his hand.

On the beach Jack asks Hurley for help; he needs him to look through the luggage for any kind of prescription medication especially drugs that end in “myocin” and “cillin“. {Those are antibiotics to you and me!}
Hurley {Wearing plaid shirt} asks “What’s this for?”

Charlie, who is wobbly, relaxes on the ground...high.

Shannon {Wearing yellow laced sneakers} is sitting and crying. She is looking at a man's dead body and tells Boone, “I think I was mean to him….He’s that guy from the gate. He wouldn’t let us have our seats in first class. He saved our lives.”
Boone tries to get her to come help clear some of the wreckage. He feels she’s being “worthless” just being over here sitting on her ass staring at bodies. She argues she’s just been through a trauma. Boone remarks they’ve all be through a trauma, but since the crash she’s been able to give herself a pedicure. They argue about him making fun of her.
Shannon-“Screw You! You do not have the slightest idea what I am thinking.”
He thinks he has a much better idea than she thinks he does.
Boone-“OK Shannon, then what are you thinking?"
Shannon catches a glimpse of Kate and Sayid getting their back packs. Shannon impulsively decides she’s going with them on the hike.
Boone- “No you’re not.”
Oh, yes she is!
Shannon approaches Kate and Sayid and tells them she wants to go. Boone interjects mentioning that this is what she does, her way of making really bad decisions that upset her family, “Which at the moment is me.”
Kate doesn’t think her going is such a good idea.
Shannon-“What, are you two years older than me? Please.”
Charlie puts himself right in the middle of the group; he’s going if she’s going. Kate says everyone can go but they’re leaving now.
Charlie, referring to Kate -“You couldn’t really tell from that, but she’s actually really nice.” {How does he know how nice she is?}







Sawyer literally sits in the middle of wreckage. {It looks almost cradle-like.} He’s smoking and reading a letter that appears to be torn out of a spiral notebook. {Watch him when he reads it.}

The transceiver group heads off through the jungle. Something has motivated Sawyer the complex guy, to join the group. This bunch literally climbs up steep mountains to reach higher ground.

Jack’s looking through suitcases for some sort of blade. He asks Michael how his son is.
Michael- “Walt? Yeah, I think he’ll be alright.”
Jack-“How old is he?”
Michael-“9. 10. 10. Walt’s more worried about his dog than anything. The dog was on the plane, so…Kids, you know.”
Jack- “Is it a lab?”  {It is a lab}
Jack saw him yesterday in the jungle. What? Where? Over there. {A friggin rhyme!} a couple of hundred yards in or so; he looked good. Jack finds a blade.

Walt with the dogs red leash, comes upon Locke who is setting up the backgammon game. {Was he waiting for Walt? In the middle of a game? What?}
Walt, asks from behind Locke if it’s like checkers. Locke tells him it’s a better game than checkers. He asks Walt if he plays checkers with his Pop.
Walt, still behind Locke answers,“ No. I live in Australia with my mom.”
Locke comments the boy has no accent. Walt shares they move a lot. He continues, “She got sick. She died a couple of weeks ago.
Locke-“You’re having a bad month.”
Walt-“I guess.” {As if it’s no big deal.} Walt comes around to sit opposite Locke.
Locke explains backgammon’s the oldest game in the world. Archeologist's found sets when they excavated the ruins of ancient Mesopotamia. 5,000 years old. That’s older than Jesus Christ. Walt inquires if they had dice and stuff. Indeed they did, although they were made from bones. Walt thinks that’s “Cool.”
Locke explains, “Two players. Two sides. One is light. One is dark. Walt. Do you wanna know a secret?” {Left hand holds light, right hand holds the dark and his red scar in the middle.}

Claire writes in her diary. {One earring, left ear.} Jin offers her food after all she needs to eat. She initially declines then takes a piece. She feels the baby move. She's very excited and wants Jin to feel it too. She forces him to touch her belly. Claire is happy “He’s” moving around. She thinks it’s a “he”.

Walking in single file in the jungle, Sawyer suggests they check the radio. Sayid doesn’t want to waste the batteries; he believes they wouldn’t get any reception. They argue. Sayid feels if he checks they may not have any juice left when we get to… All of a sudden there is LOUD NOISE and rustling in the tall grass. Something is coming toward them. Kate tells them to move. Shannon panics and says “I shouldn’t have come on this.” She screams, they run, all except Sawyer. He stands firm and fires 10 shots at a charging polar bear. They all gather around the big bear. Boone asks if that’s what killed the pilot. {He knows the monster killed the pilot???}
Charlie-“ No. No. That’s a tiny teeny version compared to that.” {So, what did Charlie see?} This polar bear is still breathing.

Hurley is helping Jack with the shrapnel guy. Jack will remove the metal from his chest but Jack has put the guy out.
Hurley- “How do you know he won’t wake up when you yank that thing out?”
Jack sterilizes the blade with a lighter.
Hurley talks to the guys “Hey guy, are you awake?”
Nothing.
Jack chuckles as Hurley mocks to try to wake the guy, “There’s a rescue plane, we’re saved, Yeah!!” {I love how the marshal’s legs are crossed! And there’s more unbroken little bottle of liquor. Lol!} They both confirm "he’s out" and unlikely that he’ll regain consciousness; but the pain might bring him around. Hurley needs to hold him down. Hurley lets Jack know he not so good around blood and he may faint. Jack tells him not to look. And indeed Hurley faints.

In the jungle, the group agrees it’s a polar bear. Polar bears don’t live this far south, but this one does. Kate asks Sawyer where did that come from.
Sawyer- “Probably bear village.”
She was talking about the gun not the bear. {She doesn't wonder where the bear came from?}
Sawyer tells them he got it off one of the bodies; a U.S. Marshal.
Kate asks how he knows that. {WOW! She asked Jack, how he “knew all that” too.} He took the gun, thought it may come in handy; he was right. The marshal had a clip on badge so he took that too.
Sayid states, “I know who you are. You’re the prisoner.”
He goes on assuming the cuffs were on Sawyer.
Sawyer- “Fine. I’m the criminal. You’re the terrorist. We can all play a part. Who do you wanna be?”
Kate snags the gun from Sawyers back waistband and asks if anybody knows how to use a gun.
Charlie- “I think you just pull the trigger.”
Kate wants to take it apart.Sayid gives her the instructions. Once apart she gives the bullets to Sayid and the empty gun to Sawyer.
Sawyer grabs her close “I know your type.”
He remembers girls like her but apparently not exactly like Kate. She walks away obviously troubled about something.

{Flash}
A stewardess asks Kate if she wants a refill. Kate is fine with what she has. Kate is sitting next to the marshal. The stewardess asks the marshal if he’d like a cocktail or soda. He wants black coffee.
The marshal chats, says Kate looks worried, “You gotta stay positive Kiddo. You know there’s always that off chance they’ll believe your story. I know I sure did.”
Cuffed Kate doesn’t care what he believes. He asks if she’s sure she doesn’t want anymore juice. They hit turbulence. The marshal smiles when the turbulence hits. Kate has one favor to ask the marshal. Instantly, a guy flies up, stuff starts falling, a case hits the marshal on the head. Kate can’t reach the mask! Kate takes his keys, un-cuffs herself then puts a mask on him and then herself. The tail section rips off from the mid section.

Sayid tells Kate “We should keep moving.”

As Jack works on the marshal he wakes up. Passed out Hurley lays on the ground. The marshal very strongly grabs Jack's shirt and whispers, "Where is she?" {Hmmm...Who?}

Sayid determines a good spot to try the radio. They’re up higher. He picks up a signal and is excited, “Bar. Hey! WE’VE GOT A BAR!”
He calls “Mayday” into the radio but gets feedback. He determines something else is already being transmitted but from where? He feels it's somewhere close, the signal is strong.
Charlie-“You mean on the island. That’s great!”
Boone- “Maybe its other survivors.”
Shannon- “From our plane? How would they even…
Sayid-“It could be a SAT phone, maybe a radio….”
He adjusts the frequency.
Sawyer-“There’s no transmission.”
Then all of a sudden they hear a transmission in French. Charlie’s excited to hear from the French! You can also hear a man’s voice repeating numbers-iterations (a counter) with it. The batteries are dying. They listen to the weird voice.
Shannon, who spent a year in Paris drinking not studying, barely speaks French translates....."It’s repeating…..She’s saying please. Please help me. Please come get me…..I’m alone now… Please someone come… The others, they’re dead…It killed them, It killed them all."
Boone {Stunned/stares} says to Shannon “That was good.”

Sayid says that French distress call/mayday, the loop has been running for 16 years and 5 months.
Sayid- “It’s been playing over and over for 16 years.”
Boone-“Someone else was stranded here?”
Charlie asks, “Guys...Where are we?”





Things to note…Questions to ask…
* It must have been pretty important for Charlie to stay in his seat. Cindy and two other stewardesses were pursuing Charlie as soon as he left his seat, all before the turbulence and the Pilot turning on the seatbelt sign and the plane going down. If Charlie was in the front of the plane near the cockpit, even when he gets to a seat, he still should be near the front. How far could he have crawled in those few moments? He still should be near the front section of the plane when it crashes. But Charlie ends up with the middle section survivors on the beach. To explore all options, did Charlie crawl all the way back to his seat (His original seat was an aisle seat) while the plane was going down or at least out of the very front of the plane? HA!
* Did the gate guy who wouldn’t give Shannon and Boone their seats in first class really save their lives, or was it part of the plan?
* Claire wears a black cord necklace with a symbol on it.
* Boone wears a black cord necklace with a symbol on it.
* Kate single handedly and instantly got the Sayid/Sawyer fight to stop just by the mention of the transceiver.
* Jumping ahead- The comic book belongs to Hurley, not Walt.
* Jumping ahead- Vincent the dog belongs to Brian, not Walt.
* Shoes. Pedicure. I.E. Foot/Feet.
* I sometimes feel like they are animals that were removed from the jungle/wild and placed in cages so they can be domesticated.
* I faint at the sight of blood in real life, yet I love horror movie. Go figure.
* Roles. Play a part.
* Sleep. Knocked Out. Unconscious….Awake.
* Does Kate know where they are? I’m just asking!

DISCLAIMER...I never claim to know everything about the show and my thoughts by no means make me right! Things I share here are my views and/or opinions. I don't claim to catch every single detail either. I hate spoilers! I stand clear of reading certain sites, as to not take me off my own research. The one thing I don't need to do here is rehash all of the obvious clues from an episode, we all know what they are. Good! I'll only note things that I know come up as clues in bold.

PILOT. part 1

PILOT. Part 1


Eye... {PAY attention to eye colors} Jack lays on his back in the middle of the bamboo jungle. He wakes up. The view is of Jack's perspective looking up toward the unbroken bamboo trees above him. Two scratches on right cheek bone, two on left cheek. He looks to his left and sees a dog; Vincent, collar on, all happy as can be. Vincent runs off. We don't really hear any background noises. Jack stands up and realizes he's bleeding. He checks his right jacket pocket and pulls out an unbroken travel size bottle of liquor. Jack takes off running through the jungle. {OK, I'm gonna wake up in the middle of the jungle after falling from the sky, and I'm going to know which direction to run in to get to the 'beach', yet Jack heads right for the beach! Damn he's good.} On his way, Jack passes a white right tennis shoe in the tree. Little by little we hear the screams and yells of the survivors of the crash. {Could it be that they all were starting to 'wake up' at the same time?}
Jin yells for Sun. Michael yells out for Walt.
Jack kicks into rescue everyone mode. He saves Rose and a nearly eight months pregnant Claire and then Hurley. Locke and Jack remove a plane part off a guy trapped under it. Let's remember when Jack's saving Rose, Boone tells him he's a licensed Life Guard. Boone runs around frantically asking people if they have a pen (So that a hole can be made in Rose's throat.) Boone does retrieve a handful of pens for Jack.
Jack searches for sewing kit in suitcases and finds one.

Jack leaves the crash site to stitch up his wounds.
Kate, alone rubbing her wrists comes upon Jack. She's wearing a white shirt. Kate helps Jack sew up his cut; after all she sewed a pair of drapes once. Jack tells Kate the story of his first solo procedure while in residency as a spinal surgeon. How he counted to 5 to deal with the fear, "How the terror was just so crazy, so real.... {As opposed to not real?} ... And I knew I had to deal with it." So he made a choice to let the fear in and take over, but only for 5 seconds. {Jack seems to tell this story almost trance-like and very emotional.} Kate says she would have run for the door. Jack notes she's not running now.

Sawyer is hanging out smoking...no real emotion, just kind of looks like, 'well island, here I am.' But note he lights a cigarette where there is fire, gas and fumes!
Hurley's in charge of the food.
Locke just sits looking out over the water.
Boone is trying to get a signal on his cell phone; it only beeps.

Sayid builds a fire and recruits Charlie to help make it a big fire.
Revived Rose kisses her wedding ring on a chain.

It's Night on the beach. Sayid wonders why "they" haven't come by now. Hooded Charlie asks "Who?"
Sayid- "Anyone."
{Why would Charlie ask who? Is he NOT expecting people to come?} {DS ring.} Charlie is writing the letters of the word FATE on four of his white taped left handed fingers.
Shannon paints her toes by firelight. Boone offers her a chocolate bar, after all they may be there for a while. Shannon reminds him the plane had a black box so they know exactly where they are and they're coming. She'll eat on the rescue boat.
Hurley delivers food to Claire; he gives her two trays of food.

Michael watches over Waaaaaalt.
Jin tells Sun in Korean she must not leave his sight, "You must follow me wherever I go." He tells her not to worry about the others,"We need to stay together."

Jack tends to a severely injured man who Kate was sitting next to on the plane. She asks if he's gonna live.
Jack uses a palm leaf as a visual aid to describe the plane at 40,000 feet, then hits an air pocket; he blacked out, etc..
Kate saw the whole thing. Jack says they need to figure out which way they came in, head to the cockpit and find a transceiver to send out a signal, "Help the rescue party find us."
Kate wonders, "How do you know all that? {Does he remember something?}
Jack admits he took a few flying lessons, "wasn't for me." {He's more the doctor role, than the pilot role anyway. But he technically piloted a plane!}
Kate mentions she saw smoke through the valley and if Jack's thinking of going there then she's going with him.
Jack-"I don't know your name."
She introduces herself, "I'm Kate."
MONSTER sounds! The trees move as if being knocked down, sounds of metal, gurgling, clicking, and an almost siren sound.
It's cute how when Walt hears the monster he turns to Michael and asks "Is that Vincent?" {Vincent? WTF?!}
You can see Rose calmly standing, looking in the direction of the sound.
No one freaks out; they listen but they aren't frightened enough to run and hide.
Charlie- "Terrific."

{Flash}
Jack is on the plane looking out the window that's on his left; he's having a drink. Cindy the stewardess comes over to him, "Shhh" sneaks him two bottles of vodka for his not so strong drink. Jack jokes about it breaking some critical FAA regulations. He downs his drink.
Charlie runs toward the 'front' of the plane to the bathroom.
Jack and Rose have conversation, about the turbulence; he tells her it's normal.
Locke sits behind Rose.
Rose mentions to Jack she has never been a very good flyer. Rose's very smart husband is bathroom. Jack tells her not to worry and that he'll keep her company until her husband returns, "It's gonna be over…"
The plane shakes badly, the masks come down, people are tossed around.

On the beach Jack stares at the water. The survivors talk about the sounds they heard.
Michael- "It didn't sound like an animal. Not exactly, I mean..."
Rose- "That sound that it made, I keep thinking that there was something really familiar about it."
Shannon- "Really? Where are you from?"
Rose-"The Bronx."
Charlie-"Might be monkeys. It's monkeys, right?"
Sawyer-"Sure it's monkeys. It's Monkey Island."
Hurley-"Technically, you know, we don't even know if we're on an island."
Sayid-"We're on an island."

Kate asks Jack if he's ready but Jack feels he can find it himself. She insists she'll go retrieve the transceiver from the cockpit with him but she's gonna need better shoes. Kate gets a pair off a dead body. Locke, who has a vertical cut above and below his right eye, smiles at her with an orange slice in his smile.

Michael tells a few of them that whatever they heard wasn't natural.
Charlie asks for sun block; Shannon has some.
Hurley says they should do something about the bodies; a word that Hurley miss-spells and Walt corrects.
Jack entrusts Boone to keep an eye on the wounded. They talk about the marshal and the other guy with the leg. Charlie will go on the trek too because he doesn't feel like standing still.

As Jack, Kate and Charlie leave for the cockpit we see Vincent just sitting there checking, watching them. Kate asks Charlie if they ever met anywhere before. Charlie reveals he's in the rock band Drive Shaft; he shows her the DS ring, 2nd tour of Finland.
Jack says they have to keep moving.
Locke sits on the beach looking out toward the open water. The skies look gloomy.

It's raining in the valley. Charlie asks if it's normal "the kind of day turning into night, you know, end of the world type weather?"

At the beach the survivors are seeking cover due to a big rain storm, all except Locke who sits there welcoming the rain. He's not running from anything, he's welcoming everything!

There are monster sounds and movement in the trees again.
Jack breaks open the cockpit door and they find the Pilot. Jack tells Kate a transceiver looks like a complicated walki talki.
The pilot wakes up; his right eye is swollen and his head is dizzy. It's probably a concussion.
Jack informs the pilot at least 48 of them survived. It's been 16 hours. The Pilot explains what happened before they crashed, that rescue wouldn't know where to look for them because six hours in the radio went out, "No one could see us." They turned back to land in Fiji. By the time they hit turbulence they were 1,000 miles off course, "They're looking for us in the wrong place."
The pilot reaches for the transceiver.
Jack realizing Charlie's not in sight asks where Charlie is.
The transceiver isn't working.
Kate looks for Charlie.
Charlie is in the bathroom.
Monster sounds! It's right outside the window! Kate seeks protection in Jack's arms. They see dark shadow outside the fogged up window. Jack tries to wipe the fog off the windshield to "see" the monster. Brave Kate also tries for a closer look. The pilot is not scared, he gets up to take a peek too. He puts the transceiver on the seat and pokes his head out of the window. BAM, he's pulled out the window; blood everywhere.
The plane falls. {Do you hear whispers?}
They run through the jungle! Charlie falls, almost too close to the monster and Jack goes back to get Charlie.
Kate hides in a Banyan tree, {Looks like a cage/ jail cell} looks up and uses the count to 5 method we just heard Jack share. She screams for Jack. {Only for Jack and not for Charlie.}

Hooded Charlie scares Kate; no Jack. {Where the hell is Jack?}
Charlie saw Jack; he pulled him up but they got separated. Charlie also starts to describe "…That Thing…" as he claws his hand… Kate asks him "Did you see it?"
Charlie says "No. It was right there. We were dead…. I was…and then Jack came back and he pulled me up. I don't know where he is." The rain stops.
Kate says they have to go back for him. Charlie's concerned as there is a "certain gargantuan quality about this thing."
Kate tells him, "Then don't come."

Charlie goes after her. Kate finds the pilots "wings" in a muddy puddle; the reflection in the watery mud shows his body is up in the tree. Jack steps out of the trees not surprised to see the pilot in the tree. Kate asks him if he saw it.
Jack says "No. It was right behind when I dove into the bushes."
Charlie asks how something like that happens.
We see the pilot's bloody body in the tree.


Things to Note...Questions To Ask…
A pretty basic review; so what do we have? Jack placed inland waking up, bottles in pocket not broken, etc.. Vincent. They DO NOT look like people that just fell from the sky! They look like they were placed there.
* Monster.
* Numbers to note- 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 16, 23
* Additional clue words: Pilot, Pen, Time, Watch, Guard, Needle, Alcohol, Patch, Black, Spine, Spinal fluid, Nerves, Sac, Membranes, Tissue.
* Charlie and Rose's husband were in the bathroom on the plane.
* Jack sits in row 23.
* New York.
* Pen
* Jack is NOT afraid of the monster, neither is the pilot. Did Jack see the monster? Where was Jack "hiding"?
* The flash shows us Charlie running to the bathroom toward the front of the plane. While he's in there the turbulence starts. Let's keep that in mind for part 2.


Vocabulary and Research…
* PILOT is an acronym, and stands for Programmed Instruction, Learning, Or Teaching.
* A pilot experiment is a precursor to a full-scale study used to check if all operational parameters are in check.
* A pilot study can refer to many types of experiments, but generally the goal of study is to replicate the full scale experiment, but only on a smaller scale.
* PILOT: is the title of a short story in science fiction author Stephen Baxter's Xeelee Sequence. 6th in the anthology Vacuum Diagrams.
* Pilot- Aviator, in aviation, an Aircraft pilot is someone who controls an aircraft. A Maritime pilot in shipping, someone who guides ships through the waters near a harbor or dangerous coastal waters. This is the original meaning.
* Pilot is the name of a pop rock group best known for their 1975 hit songs "Magic"
* Transceiver: a device that has both a transmitter and a receiver which are combined and share common circuitry or a single housing. If no circuitry is common between transmit and receive functions, the device is a transmitter-receiver. The term originated in the early 1920s. Technically, transceivers must combine a significant amount of the transmitter and receiver handling circuitry.



A great beginning to a wonderful story! Could there be a pilot responsible for delivering these people to this "Island" Or are they in the middle of an experiment?
