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.

not only do they look in the mirror in flash sideways, BUT sinces season ONE, episdoe one, every episode has someone seeking or drinking water. i know that is werid. but WATER is a Huge part of each episode.

YEAH THEY ARE ALL THIRSTY. The reason Not Locke did not take Sun was because he cannot force a candidate to do anything.

One of the characters has psychophrenia or multiple personality disorder (I haven't figured out who yet). This explains the various personalities, some dying off, new ones emerging, more dominant personalities, etc. The black smoke killing people is when the afflicted character takes his/her medication. I could go on and on but I'm pretty sure that this is how the series will be explained in the end. Only six more episodes left!

I also noticed Locke/MIB has been offering his hand out to everyone. He wants people to take his hand. I think the only one to take it is Sawyer (he had to, his ladder broke when they were going to the cave off the cliff). Perhaps, like Jacob, if Locke/MIB touches you, something happens to you?

#35 Lame, lol. The was the movie IDENTITY with John Cusack. I'm telling you, it's backgammon.

Jacob and the MIB are playing. If MIB wins he gets off the island. That's why the the MIB is trying to get all the candidates off of the island. If he does, he wins.

Locke tells Walt it's the oldest game in the world, they found the game on "adam and eve", plus the whole "light, dark" contrast.

I'm so glad I found this a few weeks ago! I'm so confused by everything, and I have the hardest time remembering everything that's happened, so the comments are a huge help. Thanks to everyone :)

I love the hospital idea. Hadn't even realized it! And I totally thought the package was gonna be Ji Yeon.

Cmon Sayid! Pull through, buddy!

and backgammon! Yes!

Can't wait to see how Desmond pulls everything together,

I have a theory (and it's not bunnies). Desmond is Daniel's constant. Daniel's death caused the side-flash. Desmond has somehow replaced Daniel as the key to the island, as well as being his brother in law.
I miss Daniel.

J Ums...... I came back during last nights episode and reread your theory after Desmond and Charlie both ended up at the hospital. VERY interesting.

Where's the diary for last night's show? I give last night a B+
