Lost Recap Episode 4: "Eggtown"

Lost Rundown Episode 4: "Eggtown"

First and foremost, Phasekitty totally called the twist at the end of this episode in one of her comments last week. Nicely done, Phasekitty. Nicely done.

As a general rule, I think I've had enough of Kate's stories, of which we've now had nine. Last week's episode was so gripping with Sayid's flash forwards, and I found myself not caring too much about Kate's stuff. Well, except for the parts that involved a shirtless Sawyer. Know what I think Sawyer's nickname for Sawyer would be? "Dimples." Anyway, otherwise, it was a fairly interesting episode.

For an awesomely thorough recap of the goings-on in this week's episode of Lost, check out SweetPeasMom's post. To check out my thoughts on the show and to share your own in the comments,


  • Last things first: Aaron is the son that Kate has been referring to, ever since last season's finale when she told Jack in a flash-forward that she has to go because "he'll be wondering where I am." So does this mean that the Oceanic 6 consists of Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sayid, Aaron, and one more person? Or does Aaron not count as one of the six?
  • Last week Sawyer said to Kate, "Nothing awaits you back there but handcuffs," and sure enough, they cuff Kate soon after she enters the courtroom.
  • Locke: "If I was a dictator I would just shoot you and go about my day." Wow, way harsh. And that whole grenade-in-the-mouth bit was hardcore, too. Locke's losing it. He also claims to now be "responsible for the well-being of this island."
  • Awww, Hurley: "You just totally Scooby Dooed me, didn't ya?"
  • I gotta say I'm growing tired of the Kate-Jack-Sawyer love triangle. Of course Jack is going to say on the stand that he doesn't love her. That part is lame. And the whole piece with Kate and Sawyer in bed, quibbling about babies and Jack is just boring. Only thing we needed to know there is that Kate's not actually pregnant — or, at least that's what she says.
  • Man, I love Sawyer's goofy-looking reading glasses.
  • Also: I think it's funny that there's Dharma Initiative boxed wine.
  • Anyone else shiver a little when Sawyer said, "So just be woman enough to tell me you want to use me for somethin'"?
  • Little tidbit from Lostpedia about Xanadu, the movie Hurley puts on the TV at the place he shares with Sawyer: "While it is a clear reference to the cult movie of 1980, in which the main character crosses over into another dimension to be with his muse, it also refers to a famous poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, about a famous paradise built by Kubla Khan."
  • $3.2 million seems like such a random number to toss out there. But we know nothing in this show is random.
  • What's going on with that helicopter Sayid took with the helicopter guy? Still haven't landed in a day.
  • Now we know that Dan's memory is faulty, and his remembering two out of three cards is considered progress.
  • I'm curious to find out who this nanny woman is who greets Kate with such a warm welcome. Hmm?

Thoughts? Opinions? Theories? Discuss!

Just thinking, If Kate is trying to pass Aaron off as her son that she got pregnant with on the island, then he probably doesn't count as one of the Oceanic Six.

I think it would be easy for Kate to pass of Aaron as her son given the time difference. By the time she gets off the island, several years will have passed in "real time"- even if "island time" was a much shorter period of time- so for the world, if someone has been missing for several years, that's definately enough time to get pregnant and have a young son.

In season one, the psychic told Claire not to let anyone else raise her baby, so I wonder what is going to happen with that. It also makes me think that Claire didn't willingly give Aaron to Kate. So many questions!

I sort of think the Daniel thing with the cards can be one of few things: - Could be that he has/had psychic or other powers and that they have been altered or faded due to the Island. - Could be that he has lost his memory (as in why he doesn't know why he's crying about the 815 stuff on TV) and that he's trying to regain it (didn't we discover that the woman in the crying scene was a caregiver, and not a wife/GF?) - Could be that he has noticed he GAINED psychic or other powers while on the Island, and after the discovery they sort of stalled or are fading out.

I can't imagine NOT sleeping with Sawyer...

I'm pretty sure Kate wasn't pregnant when she was with Sawyer. I got the hint that she "didn't go all the way" with Sawyer that night because she was on her period. Then Sawyer was like well how about now, in the morning, and she still turned him down and was like, 'oh I know for sure I'm not pregnant' . That's usually a pretty sure sign a woman trapped on an island would have that she isn't pregnant besides HELLO why else wouldn't she sleep with Sawyer!!! P.S. welcome to the club jmast! I love stories like yours of people who have finally converted gave the show a chance and are now hooked. people who don't watch just don't understand what the hell us fans are so excited about and I think people who don't watch are missing out BIG TIME!!!

I also thought she called him Eric. I'll have to watch it again to be sure, maybe with CC. I kind of think Kate was pregnant in that scene with Sawyer. She was testing him to see what his reaction would be. When it wasn't what she wanted, she left. Like someone else mentioned, people would know that Aaron wasn't her baby, because she would have had to be very pregnant when the plane crashed. And they wouldn't just let her keep him, yanno? I even doubt she'd be allowed to adopt him, given her past. Also, FYI...I accidentally discovered that they're replaying episodes on Saturdays. With the pop-up thing like they did on the recap. It's fun! :)

i have been trying to classify time off-island as "pre-beard", "beard", and "post-beard". do you think this episode is pre-beard or post-beard????

I just became a Lost fan, after Dexter (which I LOVE) finished it's second season and then the writers' strike me and my husband netflixed all 3 seasons of Lost, we finally caught up..ha. I can't tell you how much we love this show. I don't understand why a lot of people didn't like the 3rd season. I mean, it boggles my mind. This show is so good. Of course it will be frustrating because you don't get that many answers but then why would we bother watching the show anymore??

Here's my thinking regarding the Daniel/Cards scene. I'm pretty sure this is to do with time travel. I think the frieghters have been there before ( i'm thinkg of Charlotte's scene in the water. I got the impression this was not her maiden voyage to the island)..... Could also potentially have to do with the island's abilities to alter people's capabilities (a la Locke) or Maybe he was born with an ability (like Walt) lost it at some point, and is hoping the island will give it back to him. I sound like a nerd, but i love this show :)

Lost and I have a love hate relationship. right now, I'm getting tired of them adding new characters ad plot lines every episode, but I'll still watch it every week for sure. Also, Claire was talking to Kate about being a mother and Kate got this sad, far off look. But that was before they got off the island and Kate started caring for Aaron...right?

I think that Aaron has to be a tribute to Claire in some way. As people have already stated, everyone would know that Kate wasn't pregnant when apprehended so the ages would not match up and people would know he wasn't her biological child. I am thinking he is Sawyer's baby and thats why Jack doesn't want to see him.

PS: Even when Lost is "bad" it's pretty much better than everything else. "bad" episodes are only rated as such, because the show is held to a higher rating caliber!!!

The 3.2 backwards is 23, one of the mysterious group of numbers from the beginning of the season. I loved this episode with Kate. I think that something happens to Claire and Kate brings him back home. Jack probably finds out somehow that Claire was his sister and that's why he doesn't want to see Aaron. I loved it when Kate wasn't all wonderful with her mom. Her mom sold her out bigtime. She doesn't deserve to see her grandchild.

1.if kates mum said that she thought kate was dead for 4 years... nd the crash happened in september 2004 (im not sure wat yr but sumwhere round there)that would be it was flash foward into 2008.. meaning they not get off the island for a few more years... 2. i dont think claire died so kate took Aaron coz jack said he didnt want to look at the baby... jack nd claire are half brothers nd sisters... so that would be hes related to Aaron. 3. I AM SOO SICK OF PEOPLE SAYING JACK ND KATE TOGETHER IS BORING!! COZ ITS NOT!! I LOVE EM TOGETHER... <3 4. no offence but i dont find sawyer attractive in anyway. cant wait for da next ep!!!! luv LOST

kiddylind! "Sabrina's Aunt"! hahaha. I love it, because that's all I see too. I was also calling Kate's lawyer "the brother on Big Love" all night.

Ikandy, are you sure about that I watched it again and she said, "It all changed when I thought you were dead. My doctors have given me 6 months to live for the last 4 years".
kiddylnd kiddylnd 9 years
nice catch Ikandy! I totally blew over that part because Sabrina's Aunt bugs me as Kate's mom and I didn't pay too much attention to that scene. :)
Ikandy Ikandy 9 years
Did anyone else notice that Kates mom said to her trial that shes felt differently about her after she knew she was dead "for 4 years" which would put them in 2008.

Thank you! I was just about to say the same about the time frame. Why is everyone under the assumption that NO time has passed in these flash forwards? We don't really know how much or little time has passed. We can speculate that the season finale happens even further into the future than the current flashes, but that's based on Jack going crazy and growing the beard (mentions growing one to Hurley when he visits him). We can see in the current flashes that Jack is working on the crazy, but we still don't REALLY know for sure when this all is. Besides the fact that some folks are also assuming that they are all being saved this season and getting right home. Even a POW doesn't get home and settled all that quickly. These folks first off have to get to the freighter, then from the freighter get to dry land. Likely there they will go through some sort of paperwork processing (the old gotta bring 'em back from the dead issue as in Cast Away), as well as mental and physical evaluations. From there they would probably get to go home, wherever that may be. We gather they (O6) get some major cheese ($) as a settlement and that too takes time to get. So yes, seeing as how Kate already has a pretty nice house, is furnished and lived in and has a nice new VOLVO we have to wager that more than a few months time has passed between Island Life and Flash Forwards.

That's a great point, sarah100682. Also, think about how long it takes cases like that to go to a full trial. It's very feasible that it's been anywhere from 6 months to two years since they left the island.
