When it's a mural? Follow the image to the left to see a nicely cleaned version of our blacklight painting from last night's episode. By most guesses, it's a map of the island facilities drawn around the time of the "incident", which looks like it was pretty messy. Not that that's terribly surprising. The "I AM HERE" is interesting, especially compared to the "I AM SICK" which has been seen on the hatch's previous mural. Apparently on of the hatch's previous attendees had a lot of free time.
Last night completely illustrates what's still fun about Lost. I don't think the show will ever be as good as the first two or three episodes of Season One, but last night kept us fed with character interaction and plenty of mystery. Trying to guess Gale's alignment up until the end of the episode was great. When he slipped off the shelves and knocked himself out, I was pretty convinced I might have read Gale wrong. The Others have shown a decent amount of physical prowess in the past. Also, he honestly seemed to be in the dark about the machine ... but that could have been a ruse to see how much the survivors know about the hatch.
Still, whoever Gale camps with ... they don't want the counter to zero either it would seem. Gale was completely responsible for pushing the button. My guess is that Gale was going to infiltrate the camp and find out how much they knew and try to insure that the button was getting pushed.
But that still an odd order of business for a group which has insisted they could take the survivors whenever they wanted. Why do the Others, if they are such a force, resort to such guerrilla tactics?
Heheh. Just overheard a Lost convo across a couple of cubicles.
Anyway, great episode. Gale has been an excellent villain and it will be a shame to watch Sayid fillet him over hot coals.
Update: Duh, I could forget to mention the supply drop? Clearly DHARMA is more than just island at this point.
