QBoots, you've hit on exactly the two things that are bothering me, too. In one scene the tailies are at least a day's hike away from our side of the island, then in the next scene, they're already to Sayid and Shannon? We know Sayid and Shannon didn't get very far away from their side of the island because she tripped not too far away from Boone's grave.Originally Posted by Qboots
Even with all the spoilers about Shannon being the one to bite it, I didn't really believe it because it seems like a really odd dramatic choice - to kill off an entire storyline. I know people have said her contract wasn't continued, but until we hear Jack declare her dead, I'm not sure I buy it. The flight attendant from the tailies disappeared, so the producers could still say that she was the one who is "Lost" forever...especially if "Lost" doesn't mean "death" but "going over to the dark side".
And as for the timeline - we know that Sarah's recovery took a good long time (as Q mentions, I think she said at least two years in her wedding speech). So their marriage must have gone south awfully fast. Jack has said that he removed his ring and put it in a drawer - not really the action of a widower, so I assume that she didn't die from later complications, but that they broke up.
Ayiyiyiyiyiyi - looking forward to next week!! I also heard on the preview that it would be an extended show - I wonder if that means TWO WHOLE HOURS???
ETA - Just checked the ABC site and they still have Lost up for one hour next week. Also it really bothers me that the stepmother would refuse Shannon any help because all she ever does is lie around, she never does anything. She's EIGHTEEN for goodness sakes! Yes, she might be a spoiled brat, but at 18 she's teaching ballet lessons and has developed her craft enough to be accepted as an intern at a very prestigious dance company - that's no small shakes. What bee-yotch!
