Episode 6 of the Final Season of LOST

SPOILER ALERT!!!! This blog contains information about LOST.  Not only that, but I am gonna spoil my own post and inform you that there is a killer video tribute at the end.

When I went to start last night’s episode I noticed Said was spelled Sayid in the cable guide description.  Fine.  I was using the spelling a college friend uses, but it’s their show so I am going to honor their wishes by adding another letter in there.  I’m not counting this on my ignorance tally.  It’s pretty high already.

The movie poster for the Ballad of Sayid has him fighting a dragon on top of a mountain.

This week we’re given a nice break from all the meaningful activity on the island.  Sure, we could talk about the fact that Sawyer already left.  We could talk about how Jack and Hurley are with Jacob and that Jack is clearly the frontrunner in Bachelorette: Maiden Voyage.  Perhaps we could discuss Jin’s current status since when we last saw him he was severely wounded with Claire.  Or maybe, just maybe, we could spend 50 minutes learning Sayid is a bad person.  We’re going with the last one.  Not my choice.  I only suggested it because I was running out of other ideas.  But, as mentioned above, not my show.  So on to the Ballad of Sayid…

Overall What is Happening

This week’s episode was a great example of why dominoes are so awesome but also don’t seem worth the trouble.  The last ten minutes are nothing but action with the Sad Day Monster going into Raincloud Mode and bustin’ skulls.  There was adventure, murders (one sad, one not), and intrigue.  The problem is it took 350 minutes (including ads) to get to this 10.  It’s like setting up dominoes.  You spend all that time and energy setting something up, you push the first one and then 10 minutes later your hours of work are over.  Just remember to record it so you can put it on Youtube.

The island makes sense this week.  Sad Day Monster gets to the temple, uses Claire and Sayid to deliver his message then delivers on his promises to beat the bag out of everyone.  That’s how you get stuff done.

I think I covered this already, but Sayid is a bad person.  We get to learn this on land and… well… land since I guess the island is land.  In Snoozeville and on the island is more accurate. We learn this through his repeated thirst for blood and get to see him turn into a killing machine.

More Detailed Episode Recap

In civilization, Sayid takes a cab to his bro’s house (Omar).  Because he loves awkwardness and hates the bonds of marriage, he brings his sister-in-law (Nadia) flowers.  Everyone is enjoying a nice family dinner when Sayid’s niece and nephew misbehave, nag him for presents, and are excused from dinner so they can get their presents from Sayid’s stuff in the next room.  While at dinner, Omar gets a phone call and declares dinner is over.  Seems a little unfair that he gets to make those decrees, but it’s his house.  Nadia and Sayid talk about some letters she sent him.  Impeccably timed, the kids finally return with boomerangs.  I don’t know why it took them so long to find those, but it did.  And while they were snooping they found a picture of Nadia in Sayid’s bag.  Between the kid’s rudeness in going through someone else’s things, Omar’s dictating meals, and Nadia and Sayid trying to get freaky, I think we can safely say this is a broken home.

That night Omar sneaks up on Sayid while he is sleeping on a couch despite the fact that the house is pretty well sized and they probably have three unoccupied bedrooms.  Omar took out some loans from some dude and now that dude is demanding a monthly fee even though Omar has paid them back.  Sigh.  C’mon, Omar.  You’re better than that.  Omar asks Sayid to go rough up the guy Omar borrowed from.  OK, maybe Omar isn’t better than that.  Sayid says no thanks, he is not that man anymore.  Now he is just the kind of man who tries to sleep with his sister-in-law.

Sayid's niece and nephew also found this in his suitcase.

Sayid walks the kids to the bus stop so he can get the inside scoop on their mom and whether she is interested. They say “for sure”. Meanwhile, Omar gets beaten up by the loan sharks.  Or Sayid’s goons.  We’re not sure yet.  Sayid goes to pick fights with the loan sharks until Nadia pleads that he doesn’t.  She asks him to stay at home and wait for the kids.  They just left for school so he should have a solid 6 hours of alone time to go find these guys.  He doesn’t though.  Instead he takes his rage out on the various vases they have in their home and then blames the kids for it.

Sayid is gluing one of the vases together when Nadia gets home.  She says that Omar is out of surgery and awake.  A perfect time to leave someone alone at the hospital with nothing to do.  We learn that Nadia is all about Sayid’s vibe and Sayid pushed her away to his brother (probably a fetish).  He says it’s because he doesn’t deserve her.  His brother, the guy who borrows money from thugs and tells her when to stop eating, however, does deserve her.

The next day Sayid is minding his own business when some guy approaches him.  Sayid is reluctant to go with him, but then the guy threatens him in a foreign language and so he agrees.  We could have all saved some time if he just spoke the foreign language in the first place.  They get to a kitchen in a restaurant where a dude in a pinstriped suit is making eggs.  He is best described as what would happen if a used car salesman stereotype and Tony Robbins had a baby.  Being polite he offers Sayid some eggs and even offers to poach them (no easy task).  These two have an exchange where we find out Martin (egg guy) put Omar in the hospital.  They also talk about how Sayid is from Iraq.  Oh.

Sayid goes all ninja on the goons and kills them.  Then he stares down Martin who says the debt is forgiven.  Sayid says “no dice” and shoots him in the chest.  Finally someone uses some common sense and kills the head goon without hesitation.  Good work Sayid.  The one thing I would change is after shooting him you should have said “I’ll take those eggs now” and started eating the eggs Martin made. Or he could have said “Your eggs are just like you, a bit runny.”  That would have showed him.

Oh yeah, and Sayid finds Jin in a freezer tied up and not speaking English.  It’s never brought up again, so I am going to only acknowledge it happened and move on.

Back on the populated island, Sad Day Monster and Claire make it to the temple.  He promises Claire her son back if she goes to the temple for him since he can’t.

Sayid asks Toga what happened. They gave him a test to see if he was good or evil and it turns out he was evil.  They get into a fistfight that blatantly uses stuntmen.  It reminded me of something you would see in Cowboyland at an amusement park.  Case in point, Toga tries smashing Sayid with a heavy stone thing, Sayid defends himself with a broom.  But the broom snaps completely through which means if Toga had been trying to force the stone through, he would have succeeded.  Anyway, Toga’s baseball falls on the ground.  He remembers that it is the start of spring training and far be it from him to deprive anyone a full summer of baseball.  He decides to ban Sayid instead.

In the courtyard,  there’s a little chit chat about Sayid coming back to life and how 2 hours had passed since being drowned in the hot tub.  Everyone was surprised and it wasn’t Toga’s buddies who brought him back to life.  zzzzzzzzzz… huh? what? Oh, that’s over?  Good. Nodded off there.

Claire enters the temple and all the guys with guns point them at her.  Translator says “don’t shoot her”.  I don’t think they were planning on it, chief.  Claire gets all up in Toga’s grill.  They argue about leaving the temple and Toga will get killed if he does.  Toga, in non-english, instructs the translator to “Put her in the hole until he is ready for her.”  I don’t know about the language choice, Toga.  If I was talking to a dude who looked like Translator I would be careful about using the words “hole”, “put”, “in”, and “her” in the same sentence without using English.  Who knows what he heard.

Toga finds out that Jack and Hurley left the temple and tells Sayid to come inside with him.  Toga acts all buddy-buddy with Sayid and asks him to kill the Sad Day Monster because he is evil incarnate and won’t stop til everyone is dead.  The key is to stab Sad Day Monster in the chest before he speaks.  Sayid says he will do it, but only to prove there is still some good in him.  Interesting theory, Sayid.  If I wanted to prove I was a good person, I would volunteer to help the kids on the island learn to read.  But hey, if you want to prove you are a good person by stabbing someone in the chest, then to each his own.

Miles and I are celebrating our new friendship via high five.

Out in the jungle, Sayid runs into Kate (making another cameo).  She asks: “What’d I miss?”  I answer: “Not much. Just a couple episodes.  You should be able to get caught up pretty fast.” Kate gets back to the temple where she hangs with a dude named Miles.  He must feel pretty left out so far. They talk about Sawyer and some other stuff.  Then Miles tells Kate that he’s not sure what’s going on but “the blonde that had the baby is back.  She’s still hot.”  I don’t think I have ever related to a character more than I relate to Miles.

Sayid is out in the jungle now.  Sad Day Monster (as John) approaches him and says “What up, playa” and Sayid stabs him.  John stumbles a little but doesn’t die. Awk-ward.  John takes out the knife and we learn that Sayid epically failed at following instructions.  First, he let John talk before stabbing him.  Second, he missed his chest and got him in the spleen.  John is a classy dude and gives Sayid his knife back.  He also tells him that it was a setup and a roundabout way to kill Sayid.  If he goes and delivers a message for him, Sad Day Monster will give him prizes.  Sayid makes weird soap opera faces.

Sayid gets back to the temple to deliver the news that Jacob is dead and no one has to stay at the temple anymore.  There’s some talk about the temple and sundown.  I didn’t know Sad Day Monster was Jewish. It’s good he has religion in his life.  I honestly don’t know why people wouldn’t be excited about leaving the island and agree to it.

Kate beats up the Translator and talks to Claire.  Kate tells Claire she took her kid off the island and raised him.  Now she’s back on the island (?).  Claire has gone completely insane and says she isn’t the one who needs rescued.  That he’s coming and no one can stop him.

The Translator has gone from creepy to incredibly annoying and is flipping out on Sayid for causing a panic.  Sayid goes into the temple where Toga is sitting by the hot tub contemplating if the Rays stand a chance in the AL East this year.  Sayid claims he stabbed the Sad Day Monster in the chest before it talked (both lies).  Sayid asks Toga why he didn’t just kill Sayid himself.  Toga doesn’t answer his question but instead goes into a story about when he was a businessman.  He got promoted.  He got drunk.  He picked up his son from baseball practice and got into a car wreck and his kid died.  He was very upset.  Jacob offered him a chance to save his son’s life if he came to the island but he could never see him again.  Since these are fictional characters and not real people I feel comfortable saying this:  We saw your son last week.  He turns out to be pretty creepy.  You’re not missing anything.  In fact, what happened might have been for the best.

Sayid, as bored with Toga’s story as I was, drowns him in the hot tub.  It’s cool though.  That’s the hot tub that brings people back to life. He should be back to being pretentious in no time.  At least I hope so.  I was really starting to like Toga.  Translator walks in and says “What have you done!”  I think it’s pretty clear. He drowned Toga.  Translator starts freaking out and yelling at Sayid.  Predictably, Sayid cuts Translator’s throat and pushes him in the hot tub.  That’s not a wound I think the hot tub can heal.  Also, stop throwing dead people in the hot tub, Sayid.

We finally have all our dominoes in place.  Sad Day Monster goes Raincloud Mode and starts killing everyone in the temple. Miles hides in a room and tries holding the door shut.  Miles, we are what I would now define as “best friends”, so don’t take this the wrong way.  But if a monster is made of gas, then holding the door closed will do nothing to prevent it from entering through the cracks in the door.  Turns out Team Jacob busts through the door instead, complete with Sea Captain.  They run and find a secret passage and escape the Sad Day Monster.

Meanwhile, Kate has associated herself with an insane woman (Claire) and a murderer (Sayid). They go outside where Sad Day Monster and some other dudes are waiting for them.  Finally their dance crew is complete.  They walk off into the jungle to practice their routine.

Thoughts I have

  • Is this show about a plane crash on a deserted island or not?
  • I mentioned Bachelorette: Maiden Voyage above.  I Googled it and hasn’t been done.  It should take place entirely on a cruise ship and have one of the major cruise lines be the title sponsor.  ABC needs to put me on the payroll.
  • We’re at the halfway point.  Take a breather.  Get a Gatorade. There are some orange slices and bananas over there.  Stretch it out, don’t want to pull a hammy.  Let’s recoup a bit before we finish this thing out.
  • I think I underscored how upset I am that Toga is dead and likely not coming back (even though he is face down in the hot tub of life).  I made a tribute slideshow to him below.  I’ll miss him.

    I actually enjoyed you referring to Sayid as “Said”…tis a sad day that you now know the truth.

    That was a very beautiful and moving tribue to “Toga”. I’m sure, were he still alive, he would have loved it. Although, I suppose if he were still alive you wouldn’t have made the tribute video. Of course, the dude’s fictional so that really couldn’t happen anyway. I think my brain just melted.

    Anyway, great review! Six stars out of five.

    I thought I’d mention for future reference that Nestor Carbonell (Richard) just has really dark eyelashes. There are interviews with him talking about how dark they are and how he doesn’t wear eyeliner. There’s a LOST bonus feature that zooms in on his eyelashes so you can see he doesn’t wear any. In fact, the makeup crew put concealer to lighten them.

    “Toga, in non-english, instructs the translator to “Put her in the hole until he is ready for her.” I don’t know about the language choice, Toga.

    I too was wondering why Sayid had to sleep on the couch in that big house! It looked like he was right near the front door, maybe with his background you always sleep with one eye open? He did about break his brother’s arm when he woke him. Am I the only one that noticed Toga’s baseball doesn’t bounce or roll like a regular baseball?? Poor Miles is just along for the ride, isn’t he? LOVED the video, yup you have to do it for all the peeps that die now…

    Too rich! A late-comer, I read the recaps from 1 to 5 and then tonight. The vid is GREAT! 5 made me laugh so hard I thought I might get sick… I am now an addict! I want more, More, MORE!! Keep it coming, PLEEEEEEEASE!!!

  50. The 5 recap was funnier, but this one is still appreciated. I didn’t find myself bursting into laughter here. Cleverness was noticed. I think what was missing was Jack slaps and Hurley jabs. Some of this recap was a little too accurate and missed that extreme sarcasm. Tacky is more, accurate is less.

  51. Where are the comparisons to Gilligan’s Island? Is Locke the Skipper? Jack must be Gilligan? You know, if they some how managed to get the Lost crew to stumble upon the Gilligan’s Island crew, that would be money in the bank of LOL.

    “Miles tells Kate that he’s not sure what’s going on but “the blonde that had the baby is back. She’s still hot.” I don’t think I have ever related to a character more than I relate to Miles.”

    You and me both. Claire was always my favorite. I wondered for a while why Claire was never part of the Dr. Jack fan club, but with what we know now that was probably for the best. The island has vans, boats, and crashed planes, but it would probably still be pretty hard to find dueling banjos.

  53. Love the blog. I have watched from Day 1 of this stupid (great) series, and now I am just waiting for it to end…hopefully well. You are blessed…you are far less confused about this show than anyone who has watched it from the start.

    Sorry to burst your bubble…but your show idea has already happened. It was on FOX in 2001 and called “Love Cruise: The Maiden Voyage”. Surprizingly, it never made Season 2.

    This is great stuff. RIP “Toga” :) This show is inscrutable even for those of us who have seen every minute of it. Cant imagine trying to make heads or tails of it at this point, but its sure fun to read you try :)

    I do hope once this season is over, that you do watch the season 1-5 dvd for the joy of watching and understanding (as much as anyone can understand) one of the greatest shows ever made.

    Wait…ya left out the BEST SCENE!! The one where BEN comes upon Sayid in the “pool room”, and realizes that Sayid is now EVIL…and horrified Ben runs away like a sissy! (I know, the scene was only a few seconds long…maybe you sneezed and missed it.)

      Actually, a Ben scene wouldn’t necessarily register to our LOST newbie, as nothing so far in season 6 would indicate what a major player Ben is.

      I agree, it was a great scene!~!

    After I wathced the episode I couldn’t wait to get over here and read your take on it and I was not disappointed. In fact I nearly wet myself I was laughing so hard. Your witty commentary reminds me of the humor in James Lilek’s books.

    Just FYI, there are supposed to be 18 episodes in Season 6, now 12… so you’re really 1/3 of the way there.

    And I second the idea of working backward through the seasons. You could get a book deal out of it. (Hey, worked for “Julie & Julia”)

    I think after every death, you need to make a tribute video. Just some advice.

    “The last ten minutes are nothing but action with the Sad Day Monster going into Raincloud Mode and bustin’ skulls”

    I think I just laughed for a good five minutes there. Funny stuff.

    Also, I agree with someone’s previous comment – after this is over, you should watch the rest of the seasons, but go backwards (5, 4, 3, 2, 1) and continue your blog. More confusion for you – more laughs for us.

    Congrats, man. This thing is hilarious.

      “Season 6 of LOST is the only thing This Blog has going for it.” I was going to recommend a much better LOST Blog, but I’m afraid the folks over there would never forgive me for it!

      It would be equal to inviting Jeffrey Dahmer over to my Mom’s house for dinner!

    Totally epic succeed! You haven’t watched the shows and yet you pretty much get it. I’ve watched the shows and still don’t get it. If a show has to recap and put subtitles explaining what is going on in the previous episodes to explain things from the week before, one has to know that it’s confusing a whole lotta people. I think this is the only show in t.v. history that has to do this. I do like this show, but I’m glad it’s ending, it’s just not worth the confusion and the ‘huhs’ it brings on. I wish someone would count the # of times that after one actor says something SIGNIFICANT that they show the other actor just STARING at the profound utterance until they move on to the next scene. It could be a drinking game. I think, they think it’s acting, when it’s just annoying. When someone I know says something SIGNIFICANT to me, I usually have something to say. Like WTF, Are you Crazy, even a “Huh?????” I generally do not stare into their face looking for mystic symbols.

    Yep! Just . ‘Shows – to – go – ya’… Opinions are just like A$$holes… everybody has one!

    Mine is, this blog is about as funny as those TV commercials where they show you some poor foreign kid with a “Hairlip” and try to ‘Guilt-trip’ you into sending them buckets of cash that they can use to create even more commercials to ‘Guilt-trip’ even more suckers to send them even more money…

    LULZ? I don’t think so, Tim!

  78. Hilarious as usual! Some of my favorite quotes:

    “Between the kid’s rudeness in going through someone else’s things, Omar’s dictating meals, and Nadia and Sayid trying to get freaky, I think we can safely say this is a broken home. ”

    ” Sayid says no thanks, he is not that man anymore. Now he is just the kind of man who tries to sleep with his sister-in-law.”

It’s almost as funny when people post corrections. Thank You for your effort. If you did the seasons backwards-that would be appreciated. Thanks again for your Time and Effort, Bob
