yes. We finally got some answers and Desmond is my favorite character.

Desmond is my favorite character as well. That was the best episode this season. The best I’ve seen in a while too, not including the finales & premiers.

It should be interesting…going forward. Always is.

Yeah I loved it. I’m going to have to watch it a couple times to fully comprehend it though. They definitely took the whole flash back / flash forward thing to a new level.

I really love the direction they’ve taken Desmond’s character. He embodies everything that was wonderful about the first season of LOST. The crazy sci-fi drama, a compelling story through a character who is the every-man (Jack has long since lost that element), and a bit of a love story. It was really fantastic. I’ve been on edge about this season so far (especially last week’s episode which I was not crazy about), and last night totally brought me back. Especially the idea of a flash forward occurring in the present. Brilliant. And time traveling outside of your body. Genius. So far, best episode this season.

Psst. Anyone notice the frequency desmond had to tell farady was 2.342 ....23, 42

bigwei's avatar

they also mentioned 2342 during the auction in desmond’s flashback. it was the item number or something. I don’t remember exactly.

theredjawa's avatar

The auction lot number of the Black Rock diary was 2342.

The best one by far. I’m glad they finally got on the boat. Its still hard to belive Sayid is with ben in the future.

Perchik's avatar

I do have a question, perhaps someone here can answer it. The guy who dies on the boat, I know he mentioned who he was…but I didnt catch it. Can anyone shed some light?

theredjawa's avatar

Mingowski I think. He was in charge of communications. He was the one that whenever the freight people called the boat they would say they were going to hang up if he answered.

Perchik's avatar

Right, but haven’t we ran across him before? Or is it just that I’ve seen that actor somewhere else?

theredjawa's avatar

he’s been in a lot of stuff but that was his first appearance on lost.

andrew's avatar

@perchik: He was the bad guy in hackers (where he was awful)

vanguardian's avatar

I believe this was the first mention of The Hanso Foundation, which built all the structures on the island for Dharma. Widmore Industries is an entity of Hanso.

andrew's avatar

When was Hanso mentioned?

vanguardian's avatar

The Hanso Foundation provided the black rock diary for auction.

andrew's avatar

Ah! And how do we know they built the structure for Dharma? (I missed that).

Widmore is Penny’s dad’s company, yes?

Perchik's avatar

In the training videos it said “Hanso Foundation” at the bottom, and he introduced himself as so and so from the Hanso fondation.

vanguardian's avatar

@perchik – right on

@andrew – The Hanso Foundation has a website (run by Lost, not a fansite) that said it built the structures for Dharma. The company profile listed Widmore Industries as one of its companies. Its all very interesting. Got to love it.
