  • Kevin

    The notion that last night marked the halfway point is inaccurate. There are 18 hours in the final season and last night was the 8th, so technically we’re 44.4% through the season. Even if you count by episodes, that was 7 out of 16.

    • whateverhappenedhappened

      Actually, it was 8/18.

        Yep, let’s rename this the UNofficial halfway there awards and do it all over again next week when we can include 609! Hooray!

        • Handsome Smitty

          There’s been 9 hours. Nine hours left.

          • dp2

            “LA X” 0 + 2 = 2
            “What Kate Does” 2 + 1 = 3
            “The Substitute” 2 + 1 = 4
            “Lighthouse” 2 + 1 = 5
            “Sundown” 2 + 1 = 6
            “Dr. Linus” 2 + 1 = 7
            “Recon” 2 + 1 = 8

            8 hours so far. 18 this season.
            18 – 8 = 10 hours left
            8 down.
            10 to go.

          • dp2

            erm…make that
            “LA X” 0 + 2 = 2
            “What Kate Does” 2 + 1 = 3
            “The Substitute” 3 + 1 = 4
            “Lighthouse” 4 + 1 = 5
            “Sundown” 5 + 1 = 6
            “Dr. Linus” 6 + 1 = 7
            “Recon” 7 + 1 = 8
            couldn’t see through all my smug

    • Bounty

      I wouldn’t get your hopes up about David being important. He’s going to go into the LOST Hall of Fame of characters who show up in flashbacks/forwards/sideways who seem important but have no relevance to the overall mythology of the show. Other first ballot Hall of Famers are Annie(Ben), Brother Campbell(Desmond) Theresa(Daniel), and Mr. Paik(Sun and Jin). They are there to add to the story of our main characters, but everybody wants to make more of them. If you think about it, none of them have been seen for more than a total of about 5 minutes, yet people spend hours theorizing about their importance. That’s what makes the writing of this show so great…but I wouldn’t bet on David even showing up again, let alone being important to the overall story.

      • Kevin

        Actually,

        I can say with all certainty that David will appear in 3 more episodes. I know the actor that plays him and he said that he is in 4 episodes total this season. He actually just got back from Hawaii a week and a half ago from shooting his most recent episode.

        • Rams

          Thanks for spoiling!

  • 1. Best New Character: Dogen
    2. Worst New Character: Zoe
    3. Best Bad Guy: Locke
    4. Best Emotional Moment: Sawyer/Juliet (LA X)
    5. Biggest WTF Moment: Widmore on the sub
    6. Best Character Story: Richard
    7. Worst Character Story: Kate and Locke
    8. Worst Episode So Far: What Kate Does (duh)
    9. Best Episode So Far: LA X

    I voted for the Sawyer/Juliet moment in LA X for best emotional moment, but seriously, his throwing the ring into the water with Kate in “What Kate Does” has to be up there, too, especially if Claire’s hugging Kate is.

      Jamie! The Substitute, your least favorite episode? (This is not a demeaning comment in anyway by the way man! I am not trying to be all high and mighty in anyway, I am just super interested as to why that is for you? As it stands, that seems to be most die hard fans favorite ep thus far. I would probably say it has been mine, although Doctor Linus certainly comes close as well)

  • BasiaK

    My votes for the “Doczys”:

    1. The Desmond Hume Award (Best New Character):
    – Dogen – that guy has screen presence.
    2. The Nikki and Paulo Award (Worst New Character)
    – Zoe – lackluster at best, so very meh
    3. The Benjamin Linus Award (Best Bad Guy)
    – Sayid –in league with the devil for sure (Sundown)
    4. The Christmas Eve Call Award (Best Emotional Moment)
    – Ben’s tearful explanation to Ilana (Dr. Linus) – MAN can that guy act!
    5. The “What’s in the Hatch?” Award (Biggest WTF Moment)
    – Other : Sayid’s “crazy” face when Ben saw him at the pool over Dogen and Lennon’s bodies – absolutely creepy and surprising. (Sundown)
    6. The John Locke Award (Best Character Story)
    – Ben seeking redemption and acceptance after killing Jacob – Give the man his Doczy
    7. The Ana Lucia Award (Worst Character Story)
    – Jin searching for Sun
    – Sun searching for Jin – a tie. Both characters have NOTHING going on yet. Maybe they asked for some time off? Because they sure aren’t on the show yet but for the occasional “hey, don’t forget I’m on here” facet time at the beginning and ending of episoded.
    8. The Stranger in a Strange Land Award (Worst Episode So Far)
    – What Kate Does – Her story line is done, done, done to me.
    9. The Constant Award (Best Episode So Far)
    – Sundown – Smokey on a murderous rage through the temple, Sayid goes nuts and evil. Deliciously gave me the creeps, I had to watch it online two more times.

    1. Best New Character: Dogen (Why did they have to kill him! I’m hoping Zoe will be cool, but I’ll bet she’s dead in two episodes.)

    2. Worst New Character: Lennon (Beyond lame, what was the point of this character?)

    3. Best Bad Guy: Un-Locke.

    4. Best Emotional Moment: Ben’s tearful explanation to Ilana (Dr. Linus)(That was a great scene. Finally made Ilana worth having around.)

    5. Biggest WTF Moment: Honestly, there havn’t been any. Jacob’s candidats was interesting but not a WTF moment. This season is rather lacking in OMG moments.

    6. Best Character Story: Sawyer Doing anything he can to get off the island. (I love what Sawyer has become. He is the most interesting character on the show now that Desmond is gone. You can really tell which characters the writers are inspired by and which ones they can’t think of a story for (Kate, Sun, Jin, Miles).

    7. Worst Character Story: Sun looking for Jin (or in other words, Sun standing around, saying nothing and not looking for Jin. Why have they done this to Sun? She was hardcore for a few episodes and then they just forgot her)

    8. Worst Episode So Far: Sundown. (BORING!)

    9. Best Episode So Far: Dr. Linus (Made the flashforward moral story really work. My only complaint is no Rousseau!)

    3. Best Bad Guy: Flocke
    4. Best Emotional Moment – OTHER – Sawyer talks to Kate at the end of the dock
    5. Claire’s “Squirrel Baby” is revealed. Or – perhaps the entirety of the strangeness that is Jungle Claire
    6. Ben’s, definitely (although, I’d define Sawyer’s arc much differently, and might have voted for him had it been: Sawyer believes he is meant to be alone, but realizes he needs/wants other people)
    7. Sun searching for Jin – if only because it has killed all her dialogue!!! Yunjin Kim must be so f-ing frustrated at this point!
    8. They’ve all been good, but I’m not a big fan of Jack, so I’ll say “Lighthouse.”

    9. Best Episode So Far: Sundown

    This one isn’t an official entry, but thought it worth mentioning
    10. Best one-liner: Hurley to Jack after Jack lit a stick of dynamite and sat down to talk to Richard: “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting like, a mile away”

    • gusteaux

      For me, the best one liner so far is Sawyer telling UnLocke why he’s on the island: “…Because my plane crashed, my raft blew up and the helicopter I was riding on was one too heavy…”

      • Kate

        Oh that WAS a good one too.

        • Bounty

          I’ll throw my hat into the ring…Hurley to Jack earlier in Dr. Linus…”This is old school. You know… you and me trekking through the jungle, on our way to do something that we don’t quite understand. Good times.” Just a great line for so many reasons.

          • Bounty

            Pretty much sums up the relationship between the show and its fans this season, doesn’t it?

          • Bounty

            The more that I think about it, that line was probably earlier than Dr. Linus, it was probably in The Lighthouse or Sundown, either way, the point is the same.

          • Kate

            Ha! That’s a good one too. Hurley kills me. Good times.

          • Ament

            Lapidus – “Weirdest damn funeral I’ve ever been to.”

            That line actually made me laugh when he said it.

          • Jennifer

            For some reason “We’ll be in the food court” is my favorite. It doesn’t even make any sense but I found it absolutely hilarious.

    9. Best Episode So Far: LA X

  • I’m assuming you’re including double-length episodes (the premiere and the finale) as single episodes, since that would mean we’ve seen 8 out of 16 episodes.

    But we’re not really at the halfway point until after next week’s episode, since that will be the ninth hour out of 18 hours of LOST in Season 6.

    I think you should have gone with the latter and held these off for a week, since we’re not really at the halway point of the season.

    • dp2

      Even if you count them as one episode, we’re not halfway through. We’ve seen seven episodes, not eight.

      1. Feb 2 – LA X
      2. Feb 9 – What Kate Does
      3. Feb 16 – The Substitute
      4. Feb 23 – Lighthouse
      5. Mar 2 – Sundown
      6. Mar 9 – Dr Linus
      7. Mar 16 – Recon

      Hours: 8/18 hours
      Episodes: 7/16 episodes (or 8/18 if you split the two-hour ones)

    4. Ben’s tearful explanation to Ilana (Dr. Linus)
    5. Jacob’s list of candidates (The Substitute/Lighthouse)
    6. Jack on a mission to find out why he was being watched
    (I fully believe, even with Ben, Locke and Sawyer having great character arcs, ultimately Jack will be the one to embody what the writers are trying to say with the series. When all’s said and done, Ben, Locke, et al will be tools – albeit useful, entertaining tools – used to support the story that Jack embodies in his relationship to the island, to Jacob, his father and himself.
    7. Jin searching for Sun/Sun searching for Jin (tie)
    (this may turn into something wonderful, but until now it’s really a non-arc)
    8. What Kate Does
    9. Dr. Linus

    • Looking over the list, I think my favorite line of the season is Miles saying, “Uh oh…” to Ben after Ilana figured him out. That one cracked me up 🙂

    • greg dharma

      just to clarify: sideways Ben in Dr. Linus is the best character story; evil sayid is runner up.

      worst character story: kate’s fugitive run to LA was implausible, contrived, hackneyed, and not up to Lost standards.

      also the underwater island flyover gets a solid runner-up in the WTF category.

      for the record: didnt peek at the other answers before i posted.

  • greg dharma

    kinda interesting so many people wrote in the ben-ilana scene as most emotional, yet it wasnt initially considered…
