I could have sworn that Kojak was a yellow lab in the tv movie.Originally Posted by QbootsA few notes to fellow posters (I can't be bothered trying to use "quote" today ):
hepcat: I believe the creators first mapped out season one to last for 40 days, but ABC kept ordering more episodes as the season went on. I trust Locke when he says 44.
A belated Welcome to cricketeen! It has occurred to me also that it may have been Ethan that Desmond was waiting for.
CCL: are we sure Ethan was an "Other"? I see him more as a rogue, like Danielle. Ethan and Danielle both wanted the baby, "The Others" did not.
JR: have faith baby! I'm sure the writers know where they're going. They have the main story in mind, they just need to flesh out each episode as it comes. The writing process is just as time-consuming as the filming process, so they can't have an entire season scripted before they even start.
jette66: Danielle's changing of the broadcast couldn't have affected Desmond. She did that 16 years ago, long before he even got there.
myrosiedog: Kojak from The Stand was an auburn Irish Setter. But he may have been a Yellow Lab in the movie version. .
I agree the flashbacks were a bit lame this time. But I think that's only because Michael has a much more boring past that anyone else. He hasn't killed anyone or robbed any banks. I'm guessing they were just trying to get us to understand that he doesn't see Walt as some kind of albatross around his neck. He didn't give Walt up willingly, and he'll fight with every ounce of his strength to get him back.
