    The fascinating stuff, you know...
    Personally, I'll need to rewatch the whole thing. I think I missed a ton of details, between having to take notes/key in my posts and having a splitting headache. (Damn weather.) I know I didn't notice any mention of any of the numbers, but I'll bet there were some.

    I'd just like to ask all the Americans here if they enjoyed their "special extended episode", ie: the extra 4 minutes of commercials.

    I get the feeling The Others only abduct "good people". So of our original 48, Walt was the only "good" person? And no - I'm not counting Claire until I find out for sure that Ethan was an Other.

    He said that the first night they took the strong ones, men. Does that mean the second time they were going after the "good" ones?

    If anybody wants to win a trip to Hawaii to meet the cast, tune in to The Tony Danza Show this week. He's been giving a hint every day and you can enter the contest online.
    Boots, I read somewhere recently that they DID get caught in a continuity mistake with Shannon's age. They apologized and admitted they made a mistake- I didn't catch THAT one, but someone on the FoRT did. So I guess the writers are human after all!

    Yes, but 'good' for what? Labor? Eating? Good for the Others doesn't necessarily mean 'good' for the ones taken.

    Re: A.L. and a possible child in her past: it doesn't have to be her own child but a younger brother or sister that she "promised to protect" (and couldn't) that is haunting her past. It may be why she's got such good self defence moves; she may have come from a tough area where she had to protect herself and others she loved.

    nilesgirl is right about the "Nathan is not a good person" thing that goodwin said- Yet another freakin question- how would those homicidal maniacs know who is "good" or "bad", and where the hell did they get their names to put on a list? And how did the answers to these questions become the most important thing in my life tonight! (gotta laugh at myself!)

    Goodwin said that Nathan wasn't a good person. (Which I first assumed meant he wasn't a good vs evil - person), but what if he was referring to a good specimen as in a scientific experiment? As in, Nathan didn't qualify for what we are looking for or need?

    That's kind of what I was thinking. Or maybe good enough to be "saved" by them. Didn't someone have a theory about the Others thinking they're saving the survivors from some sickness?

    ETA: Good point, xjeff99 regarding the Ana Lucia spoiler...someone she couldn't protect or keep her promise to perhaps!

    Hey, XJeff- regarding AL'S
    Click to see Spoiler:
    past cop experience- her control issues (no offense to any law officers out there), I have a brother in law who is Head DEA agent in Mt. Pleasant, SC, and my other brother in law is the head of the bomb squad in SC for the FBI- Great guys, and great fathers, but they are both in control of all they deal with at all times. I don't remember hearing about AL's past job, but if her history is law enforcement, that is why she is taking the leader role. It is the nature of a person in law enforcement. Also, something to think about, people in law enforcement are either all about helping people(my brother's in law both fall into that category) or they have a psychotic inferiority complex that drives them to dominate people with their perceived "power" because they were tormented in their past for being short, weak, unfit, different, etc. (my Brother in law in the FBI told me this about the motivation behind some local law enforcement officers he's dealt with.)
    So we have yet to see what AL's motivation is.

    little spoiler alert- Ask Ausiello ran an interview with Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. They answer some interesting questions.

    They answer why Shannon was picked to die and they have a good answer.
