The 'Lost' Diary -- What Kate Does

2/10/2010 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

LostDaniel from TMZ here, welcome back to another edition of The "Lost" Diary.

During football season, I often joke that there are only six days in the week -- since Sundays are essentially reserved entirely for football. "Lost" season is kind of the same way -- it's the only day I really care about and if anyone tries to make plans with me on the night "Lost" is on, I just sort of laugh. "Sorry. Can't. 'Lost' is on."

For all you "Lost" Diary newbies, here's how it goes: I gather with a group of friends watching "Lost," writing what happens on the show as it happens, and throwing in my two cents along the way. I caught whatever was going around the office, so I decided to quarantine myself tonight and watch alone. Sucks.

Let's roll ...

9:00 -- We're starting off this week in Other Other Land, with Lennon telling Mr. Miyagi that Sayid is still alive. I just Googled "Mr. Miyagi" to check the spelling -- did you know his first name was Kesuke? I bet you didn't.

9:01 -- Kate is stunned that Sayid was dead ... but now is fine. Why is she surprised? Has she not been watching the show the last six years?

9:02 -- Back in AlternateRealityVille, Kate is trying to flee LAX with Claire and the guy who played the Puppetmaster on "Heroes." Yes, I still watch "Heroes." No, I don't know why. Remember when people compared "Heroes" to "Lost"? How'd that turn out?

9:03 -- After the guy cabdriver runs out of the car, Kate kicks Claire to the curb -- but for some reason Claire doesn't want to leave her luggage behind.

9:04 -- The only thing in the history of "Lost" that has seemed more out of place than the part in Jack's hair was Nicki and Paulo. I can't take anything he says seriously.

9:05 -- Sawyer wants to leave Other Other Land, but Mr. Miyagi wants him to stay -- and apparently he wants him to stay so bad, he's willing to ask in English.

9:09 -- Whoa, it's Mac from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" again.

9:10 -- "I can be very convincing when I want to be." -- Kate. It's called "being hot."

9:11 -- Having a gun and being hot allows Kate to talk the mechanic into helping her out of her handcuffs.

9:12 -- Kate seems to have grabbed Claire's bag by mistake.

9:13 -- Mr. Miyagi has Sayid tied up and is blowing dirt on him. What are the odds he's performing some kind of "Do you have the soul of Jacob inside you?" test?

9:14 -- Sayid passed Mr. Miyagi's test. Is that a good thing?

9:15 -- Or not.

9:20 -- Kate goes to meet Claire and now they're about to embark on some sort of girl bonding road trip to Brentwood. Is riding the bus in Los Angeles so bad, Claire would rather hitch a ride from a fugitive who held her at gunpoint?

9:21 -- "I'm sorry, is this a press conference?" -- Mac

9:22 -- Kate just outsmarted Mac and his friend. I have a very low opinion of anyone who gets outsmarted by Kate.

9:23 -- Jack tells two guards to step aside. Add that to list of things I'd like to say one day and mean it.

9:24 -- Whenever Mr. Miyagi speaks English, it's like when SIlent Bob speaks in the Kevin Smith movies.

9:25 -- Mr. Miyagi is obviously Jewish -- he just laid the mother of all guilt trips on Jack. My grandmother would be proud. I expect Jack will give Sayid the pill ... and call Mr. Miyagi once a week, not just on holidays.

9:29 -- "No, I am not a zombie." -- Sayid

9:31 -- "Who do you care about, Kate?" -- Jin. Great question.

9:32 -- Thelma and Louise are on their way to Brentwood.

9:34 -- Of all the breakups in the world, being dumped by the people who were going to adopt your child has to be among the most painful and awkward.

9:35 -- Kate has tracked Sawyer back to his house in Dharmaville.

9:41 -- Kate rushes Claire to the hospital where her physician is ... Ethan. More alternate reality ramifications from the bomb, I presume?

9:42 -- Ethan is able to comfort Claire -- which is easy for the characters on the show, but everyone watching knows he is Mr. Creepy Von Freaksmeout, so that entire scene was waaaay scarier for the viewers.

9:43 -- Kate wants Sawyer to help her find Claire. This week is all about Kate and Claire and how they are bonded.

9:45 -- Shhhh, Sawyer is trying to cry.

9:46 -- Shhhh, now Kate is trying to cry.

9:47 -- Mr. Miyagi tells Jack his name is Dogen and he was brought to the island, just like everyone else.

9:48 -- "Poison." -- Dogen

9:53 -- Claire lies to the cops to help Kate. Girl power!

9:54 -- Now Claire is giving Kate her credit card. This is all just so weird.

9:55 -- Sawyer stares. Kate stares.

9:56 -- Dogen thinks Sayid is possessed.

9:57 -- "Because it happened to your sister." -- Dogen

9:58 -- Odds Jin finds Claire?

9:59 -- RIP Mac.

10:00 -- "Claire?" -- Jin. Oh man, she does not look good.

I have several different tests I use to judge an episode of "Lost." Let's use the "How would you recap the episode to someone who missed it?" test:

Claire's back and Sayid might be possessed.

That's it. Did I miss anything important?

I really don't have much to add here. Not much happened. Not much to analyze. Not much to break down. I give this episode a D -- and I think I am being kind there.

When you factor in how few episodes we have left, an episode like this makes for a huge disappointment.

I believe a D- is a little harsh. Their were a few revelations. Such as evil blackness which might possess Sayid, and we found out what happened with Claire, back on the mainland and the island. Their is still about 12 episodes to go and they have to spread the surprises to keep the audience interest, and of course the biggest revelations won't come until the last episodes anyway. I would say a C.

9:35 -- Kate (not Claire) has tracked Sawyer back to his house in Dharmaville

You gave it a "D"?????? You are being very generous. I just found your blog/article and have favorited it. Thanks! Maybe next week will be a better episode.

Newbie here. Good show...your show that is. I couldn't agree more, that episode was weak. Which will actually make it easier to get through the week.

Remind me, was Claire injured when she walked off that night in the jungle?

Anyone else notice that Sayid is mysteriously devoid of his usual accent?

I think you meant Kate tracked Sawyer back to his house @ the Dharma compound, not Claire.

This episode wasn't as fast pace like the first, but it kept me watching!!

I was disappointing at best. I've got a question, whats with the annoying subtitles on the reruns? I missed most of last year due to a dispute between Dish and the local ABC affiliate so I've been trying to catch up. I don't remember this from before.

@ lisa. Its a recap, so the ppl who missed the last episode can catch up before the new one they air @ 9 comes on.

"Remember when people compared "Heroes" to "Lost"? How'd that turn out?"
LOL. The best part of this entire commentary!

Nobody here thinks that Claire is possessed by Russo??

This episode SUCKED!! Come on guys, more menacing strangers at this point of the game? Give me a break!! One more episode and I'm out unless they get with it and I have watched from the beginning. They need to start connecting the dots not starting another storyline...

Wasn't the mechanic who cut Kate's handcuffs off the same guy that was originally in the hatch with Desmond? The one who tried to steal his boat. He was also in a scene with Sayid in Iraq.

Very interesting episode. Why did Aldo tell Justin (the two Others with Kate) to shut up when Jin mentions the 2nd plane Ajira and Rousseau. Justin says that "Rousseau has been dead for years"! Is the year on the island more than 2007? It seems that the timeline on the island is out of whack from supposedly 2007. If the Oceanic 6 got rescued in 2004 and came back 3 years later and ended up in the 1970's and then the hydrogen bomb sent them forward to 2004?
