Do we need spoiler tags in this thread? As long as its just your own theories and not actual spoilers (from spoiler sites etc) about upcoming episodes? It will get real tiring real quick to try to read this thread.

The first scene with the drill operator...did he have like a seizure or something?  Do you think this relates to Faraday's assumption that you can't change anything, "it" wont let you?  So, if they find (and presumably wreck) the "big lever room", that would mess with the space-time line, and so instead the drill melted and the operator was injured?  Or is that room actually physically protected with a barrier of some kind?

Oh, and this also means that the "big lever room" wasn't installed by the Dharma Initiative like all the other bunkers and things were.  So who put it there?  And when?

This is my first time putting one of my theories out there so be gentle :).

Seems plausible to me.

I think it's pretty obvious that the old woman from the end of the second episode is either Faraday's mother or someone who was working with him - she was doing the same sort of calculations that Faraday was trying to get started on to figure out when / where jumps were going to occur (or maybe even when the whole matrix was going to collapse for good and leave no more opening to return).

Pretty good episodes... though it was a little hard to jump back in because I don't remember half of what's happened, they did a good job of jumping right into the action instead of spending a whole episode doing jack shit, which is what most shows usually do. The first episode in particular was really well written, I was surprised when the 45 minutes were up because I got so involved I had no idea the episode was about to end. :)

I'm not sure who she is in the larger sense, but that's the woman who sold Desmond the ring for Penny a long time ago.

That was the old time-travel-expert lady that Desmond met in his time-travelling flashbacks.

Yes, Susan said so while we were watching too. She's much better at remembering faces than I am.

Seriously, we'll be watching some random show like House and she'll look at the guest star and go "I know that guy...", 5 seconds will pass, and then she'll say, "Oh yeah, he was in an episode of North of 60... the one where the crooks were robbing a bunch of shops in town." And she's NEVER WRONG. Most useless mutant power ever. ;)

I was very pleased.  Not at all the let-down I had feared.  I don't have any theories.  I prefer just to sit back and enjoy the ride, though I enjoy reading everyone else's theories.  My fiance is full of them.

I might be a little late for this, but they seem to be implying that John Locke is only mostly dead.

He's feeling quite better!  He'll be walking by morning!

Turns out I have a business dinner tonight, so I'll be missing Lost.  Anyone know if they re-air the episodes any other time in the next week?  I know I can watch it online, but I want to watch it on my big screen if at all possible.

I believe they re-air the previous episode right before the new one.  So you're safe.
