Lost Diaries: Episode 23 and 24

Exodus parts 1 and 2

"The French woman—Danielle Rousseau (guest star Mira Furlan)—shocks the survivors by showing up to the camp with a dire warning about "the Others" who are on the island, and the black smoke that precedes them. Meanwhile, Michael and Jin ready the raft for sailing. In flashbacks, we see the survivors final moments before they boarded their fateful flight."

YES! Jack and Sawyer's Goodbye? I can't believe it. What is the fire burning business on the other side of the island? Sayid has keen insight into Rousseau's actions. Poor Claire. I don't think she can take much more of all this. What a wonderful show.

Here are the things I wrote when I originally finshed the first season, back in May. I thought they'd be, you know, relevant:

this is out of order from the lost diaries but i had to do it.

we finished it yesterday. it's like 24 now, where i keep thinking about it all the time and obsessing.
these are the thoughts i had after the end.....

hurley gets a lot of good one-liners (sarcasm) a security system that eats people?

wtf are the moving shadows/clicking noises? SERIOUSLY?

locke is okay with being pulled into the black hole? jack and kate threw TNT into the hole; the island is gonna be pissed.....

a "Locke problem?" if we live through this? science vs. faith. surgeon vs. freaky marlon brando guy?

funny how shannon seemed so random and insignificant at the beginning. now she gets to bone with sayid and hear the whispers! that's big!

sawyer and jack's goodbye is probably my favorite moment of the whole show. LOVE THEM BOTH. LOTS.

WALT. brian the step dad didn't want to raise him/said THINGS HAPPEN with him? what kind of "special" is this kid? he also said not to open the hatch. he TOLD locke this and he opened it anyway. you'd think that Locke would be able to sense if what walt was telling him was important....

where is beatrix kiddo on this island? don't let ANYONE mess with the pregnant chick OR her baby. what could be worse? sayid understands. do not try to understand her, she's a woman who's lost her child (rousseau). crazy old french bat. i'm sure this happens frequently in iraq; the losing of children.

WHAT IS WITH THE DELIVERANCE DUDES IN THE BOAT?!?!?!?!?!?!!? seriously! people have a way of being a bit too loose with their kids on this show. GRIP THEM TIGHTLY. do not let others remove them from your clutches. CHRIST. i have 3 kids and i am already mentally working out how i could cling onto them in the event of kidnapping island hillbillies or random tsunamis: zizzy on back, bubby in front helping me hold beebins. bite attackers with sharp teeth if need be. kick and flail like ruth stupes running away from the abortion house.

my theory on this is that it is an isolation booth that everyone is hooked up to, separately. the gvt is doing experiments on them, OR ALIENS. what makes me think this are the polar bears. and the random boats and planes. AND the hatch.
i made matt get season 2 last night. i am sooooooo excited.
