Lost Rewatch: Week 25 (and Doc Jensen)

Lost fans, the Lost Rewatch is back this week after taking a short break for Thanksgiving. Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday. Before continuing with a look back at season 5, I have some good news for Lost fans ... Doc Jensen is back! Well, he technically never left, but he's once again posting weekly columns about Lost at Check out his first post about the upcoming season, where he previews season 6 and talks about the move to Tuesday nights, or this week's article on the Groundhog Day Conspiracy. Now onto this week in the Rewatch:

316 (Zap2It Recap)
  • GulfCoastOffense's original recap. LongLiveLocke's original recap.
  • Episode shows how the members of the Oceanic 6 returned to the island.
  • We are introduced to the Lamp Post, off island DHARMA station, but all we know is that its the station that DHARMA used to locate the island and that it was created by someone clever. How did DHARMA originally learn about the island? Who is the clever person who created the Lamp Post (Faraday?)?
  • To get back, the group had to recreate as much of the original flight as possible. Why was this a requirement?
  • A few more questions: What else does the island need Desmond for? Who else knows about the Lamp Post? Why did Jack, Hurley and Kate appear in the 1970s?
The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham (Zap2It Recap)
  • GulfCoastOffense's original recap. LongLiveLocke's original recap.
  • This episode shows what happened to Locke after he turned the donkey wheel and tried to persuade everyone to come back.
  • It's safe to assume (or is it?) that this is the first time that we see "Man in Black" posing as Locke. (Unless he started posing as Locke sooner, as some fans have speculated).
  • How long has Widmore been monitoring the exit point in Tunisia and why wasn't he monitoring it when Ben was dropped there? When did Locke tell Jack that Ben was off the island?
  • Walt tells Locke about his dream, seeing Locke on the beach in a suit and people surrounding him who want to hurt him. Did Walt just describe episode 1 of next season?
  • We still aren't sure who the good guys really are. Ben keeps telling everyone that they are the good guys, but everything Widmore says and does seems to also be for the good. Who can really be trusted?
LaFleur (Zap2It Recap)
  • GulfCoastOffense's original recap. LongLiveLocke's original recap.
  • This episode shows what happened once the island stopped jumping and the group adapting to living in 1970s DHARMA.
  • Horace is now with Amy. When we originally met Horace it was implied that he and Olivia were together. So where is Olivia now?
  • In the 1970s, DHARMA brought all the pregnant women off island to deliver, but Juliette is successful in delivering Amy's baby. Sawyer assumes that the child birth issue hasn't started yet, but why do they bring the women off island then? When does the child birth issue start?
  • A few more questions: When was the statue constructed and who built it? How is Richard able to get by the sonic fence? Why does he need Amy's husband's body to prove the truce is still on? (Does it have something to do with dead bodies coming back to life on the island?)
