The 'Lost' Diary -- The Package

3/31/2010 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LostWelcome back to another edition of The "Lost" Diary.

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 have quarantined myself tonight because I have an awful cough and cold. Sucks, but let's roll ...

9:01 -- We're watching the Not Locke crew gathered on the beach through some sort of surveillance video. Meanwhile Not Locke is trying to have a chit-chat with Jin.

9:02 -- Not Locke says the only way they can leave the island is if all the candidates go together. Here's to hoping -- again -- that this is the week they reunite Jin and Sun.

9:03 -- Jin and Sun are back at the airport and Jin won't be getting his $25,000 back from security. One time, the TSA guy took my iced tea and wouldn't give it back. This is like that ... just multiplied by like 25,000.

9:04 -- Oh no!!! Jin and Sun aren't married in the flash-sideways? Is there no God?

9:05 -- Sayid and I are going through the same thing right now. He feels like shit because he is possessed by some sort of dark spirit -- and I spent last weekend in Las Vegas. Roughly the same feeling.

9:06 -- I hate it when I am trying to talk to my friend about my other dead friend who is possessed by some sort of spirit that can change into a deadly smoke monster ... and then we all get hit by tranquilizer darts. Sucks.

9:09 -- "Unless Alpert's covered in bacon grease, I'm not sure Hurley can track anything." -- Miles

9:10 -- Sun's tomato garden -- ah, the memories.

9:11 -- Sun's not really into the whole "candidate" thing.

9:12 -- Ok, well Jin and Sun are not married ... but they still got a little something something going on.

9:13 -- Not Locke is chatting with Sun. Do you think he walked all the way across the island or do you think he took the Black Smoke Express?

9:14 -- Run Sun, Run.

9:19 -- Ok, so Sun is running away and Not Locke is going after her on foot. Seems like the perfect time to be able to turn into a black cloud of smoke.

9:20 -- Sun is trying to convince Jin to run away with her -- and shockingly this is taking some convincing.

9:21 -- Keemy is back again. I wish this guy would just die already.

9:22 -- Not Locke has returned to his camp to find everyone unconscious. He does not look happy.

9:23 -- Jin looks like he is being held in the room Karl was being held in back in the day. That's not fun. (He just flipped the switch -- yeah, same room).

9:24 -- Zoe wants Jin to help Team Widmore.

9:27 -- "No, cause that would be ridiculous." -- Sawyer

9:32 -- Keemy is happy with the watch and all ... but he really had his heart set on the $25,000. There is something about the sound of his voice that annoys the shit out of me.

9:34 -- Whoa, it's the crazy Russian guy, Mikhail. Man, the flash-sideways are a small world.

9:35 -- Keemy is willing to let Sun go to the bank to get the money. I thought he'd be a lot dumber about the whole thing.

9:36 -- "She hits her head ... and forgets English?" -- Miles. Yes, that seems to be what happened.

9:37 -- Not Locke has made his way to the other island and they are shooting at him -- but they have erected an anti-Smoke Monster fence.

9:38 -- "A wise man once said war is coming to this island. I think it just got here." -- Not Locke

9:41 -- Richard is back and he's taking charge.

9:42 -- Sun just gave a really impassioned speech ... that no one understood. But she stormed off at the end, so they got the point.

9:43 -- Uh oh. Not only does Sun not have the money ... but her dad is the one who closed the account. That's not good.

9:44 -- Uh oh part 2. That $25,000 was for Keemy to kill Jin. Luckily we all know how this ends, otherwise I might be a tad worried.

9:45 -- "Some people just aren't meant to be together." -- Keemy. Foreshadowing, anyone?

9:46 -- Widmore wants Zoe to retrieve "the package." Has to be Desmond, right?

9:47 -- Interesting choice of words from Widmore -- he says if Not Locke gets off the island, everyone they know and love would "cease to be." He didn't say "die." Interesting.

9:48 -- "It's a who." -- Widmore. Here we go.

9:54 -- Mikhail and Sun have returned to find everyone dead or at least close.

9:55 -- Mikhail and Jin are battling it out in the kitchen and I can't help but think that either Jin or Sun is going to die.

9:56 -- Sun's shot, but I think she'll be ok.

9:58 -- Jack is promising he'll get Jin and Sun off the island. I feel like a few times a season Jack promises to get people off the island.

9:59 -- "I don't like secrets." -- Not Locke. Well then you're on the wrong show, pal.

10:00 -- "Let's go, Mr. Hume." -- Random guy

So the question we're left with is -- why is Desmond so important? I have a few ideas.

But I'll start with a question -- why was Desmond on the island in the first place? His boat crashed during that race he was on, right? Right? Knowing what we know now, do you think that's true? And by true I mean ... is that all there is to it?

If Jacob "brought" the Black Rock to the island -- and Oceanic 815 -- what's to say he didn't "bring" Desmond? The question is why.

Desmond seems to be some sort of bridge between our two worlds -- the island and the flash-sideways. I am not sure how or why, but the fact that he wasn't on Oceanic 815 before and he is "now" always stood out like a sore thumb.

I don't know how it all comes together, but I think Desmond plays a huge role in bringing the two time lines together somehow.

Can't say I enjoyed the episode a ton. It kept me interested throughout, but as per usual lately the whole episode was telegraphed. You knew Jin would be fine and you knew the big reveal at the end was going to be The Package (and we all had a pretty good guess it was Desmond). "Lost" has been a little too predictable for my tastes this season.

I give this episode a C because I always love Jin and Sun. And how's this for a "Lost" fun fact, courtesy of Lostpedia: This is the first time since the Season 3 finale that all credited main cast members have appeared in an episode, a 27-episode gap.

like your insight about what widmore said
Interesting choice of words from Widmore -- he says if Not Locke gets off the island, everyone they know and love would "cease to be." He didn't say "die." Interesting.

I love Jin and Sun too but they are stretching these last episodes on nothing happening at all. I'm a bit disappointed.

Charlie was not an original cast member? From what I recall he was a part of the very first episode was he not?

First of I want to say I really enjoy reading your re-caps of new episodes. One question though, you said at the end this was the first time since the season 3 finale that we have seen all main cast members, what about Michael and his son Walt?

Desmond also the one who black out in the Island and be back in his regular life. So I think ur right he is a brigde.

I think it's interesting that Sun shared she was pregnant when Jin was carrying her away. Considering earlier in the show they showed two glasses of champagne.. not a very good way to start off the pregnancy.

I think the tie in with Desmond was that he was the only one that was able to travel through time and already play with the time lines. Remember Daniel Faraday?

Desmond is special b/z he can jump through time and see into the future. I have a feeling they are looking for additional pockets of electromagnetism (jin's map) so they can expose 'the package' to it again to jump start his powers like after he blew up the hatch. With his returned powers, Hiro, I mean Desmond, will defeat Essau once and for all.

Its cheesy but im sure in the end it will be revealed that Jacob brought Desmond to the island so that he could gain 'honor' in Papa Widmore's eyes.

Reason you don't like Keemy....he tries to sound like Christopher Walken

I still don't think Not Locke is actually the Smoke Monster in human form. Let's see Not Locke turn into smoke and then I'll believe it. He could have turned into smoke and captured Sun. Didn't. I think it serves his purpose as a pawn of the Smoke Monster/Man In Black to have everyone (including us) believe he is the Smoke Monster. They're setting us up for the big reveal that he's not the Smoke Monster. I have yet to figure out how he can take a knife to the chest and live... But Mikhail did similar things in the past too.

My theory from that episode.
Everyone is connected to the hospital in the flash-sideways.
Ok, we know that Ethan, Claire, Aaron, and Jack are at the hospital. From tonight's episode, we know that Jin and Sun are on their way there to get treatment for Sun after she got shot.
I can see Sawyer and Miles going there to investigate Sun's shooting.
Maybe Locke finally decides to go see Jack for that free consultation!
Sayid visits his brother (to tell him things have been taken care of).
Hurley works at the place Hurley owns. Maybe since Rose is dying of cancer she has some medical emergency and Hurley takes her there.

It just seems like they are all working their way to the hospital for some reason or another.

So all of them ending up at the hospital may make the timelines merge back into one through Desmond.
Remember what Faraday told Desmond. Something like, you’re the only person who can help us because, the rules... the rules don't apply to you. You're special. You're uniquely and miraculously special.

There you have it.
