What's This???

courtesy of TV Guide:

Mark Pellegrino, whom Dexter fans for certain will remember as Rita's hate-to-hate-him druggie/abusive husband, has been cast on ABC's Lost, sources confirm for TVGuide.com. Pellegrino will likely make his first appearance in the two-hour Season 5 finale, airing May 13. His casting was first reported by EW's Ausiello.

Who is Pellegrino playing? "Officially," our source tells us, he is billed on the call sheet as "Man No. 1." That is obviously meant to be as generic as "Sexy Stewardess" - but perhaps more can be read into it, if one were (ahem) inclined. Ask yourself: Who is the BMOC in Lost-land?

Character name aside, Hawaii-based eyewitnesses tell the Dark UFO fansite that Pellegrino thus far has filmed a scene in which he is on hand for Locke's crippling fall from a window. The speculation is that Man No. 1 will also have a Zelig-like presence at other formative events in each castaway's pre-island life.

Who in Lost lore would be so omnipresent? Are you thinking what we're thinking?

3 Theories. 1 Mystery

Courtesy of EW

Say What?

Courtesy of EW:
An ABC insider confirms that Lost will begin filming a wedding ceremony later today that is slated to air during the show's two-hour finale on May 13. Who's getting hitched? Here are a pair of clues: Actors of Asian-American descent are being sought to play extras, and the wedding will take place on the mainland, not the island. That pretty much rules out Jack/Kate or Sawyer/Juliet. "One theory is that it's a flashback to Sun and Jin's wedding," whispers a Lost insider. "But the wild rumor is that Sun and Jin's daughter will marry Aaron in the future."

Wednesday TV

Lots to watch tonight. Survivor, although touted as new, is not really new. It's the usual clip show they tend to broadcast during each season, especially when the show conflicts with Thanksgiving or, in this case, March Madness.

American Idol is on from 8 to 10 and LOST airs at 9pm. The Tivo will certainly be getting a workout this evening!

Some LOST scoop from my 'secret source':
1. When the plane first starts to descend down to the island you briefly hear the numbers come in over the radio. It's probably the same recording that Hurley's friend from the first mental hospital and I think Roussou's group heard it too. (Then Roussou put her own message over it which ran for 16 years before Jack turned it off). If Jack turned Roussou's broadcast off then someone must have put the original numbers broadcast back on?

2. Amy & Horace's son is Ethan. That means Ethan was spared from the Purge since we see him still alive in Season 1 when he was "planted" in with the Oceanic Flight Crashers. But why? How? Perhaps he was off the island at the time of the Purge in the early 90s. Or if the theory floating around that Amy had an affair with a hostile turns out to be true than Ethan would be half DI and half Hostile and he could have been spared for those reasons.

3. Where are Sun and Frank? We know the two are in 2007 but if the numbers being played as the Ajira plane crashes are the same numbers we hear Hurley calling out on Danielle's radio (as she encounters a shipwrecked Jin) than that must mean that the timeline that Sun and Lapidus are in must have been altered at least to the point where Danielle has never recorded over the numbers with her message, right? Either someone restarted the broadcast of the numbers (why?) after the helicopter left the Island, or the plane and everyone else landed before 1988, which is the year when Danielle changed the broadcast to her creepy message....which she herself turned off to contact the Freighter people in 2004. But if the plane landed before 1988, why are the Hydra and the cages abandoned? Dharma was still out and about until the Purge in 1992, supposedly, because Horace told John he had been dead for twelve years in 2004. I think it's just a continuity mistake, either the numbers being heard in the present time, or that Horace has been dead twelve years. It makes more sense for Dharma to have died out before 1988 when Danielle arrived on the Island, how did she not run into anyone there and how come Dharma did not go to the radio tower pertaining the changed message? Horace must have been dead for more than twelve years, and that was the continuity error. If the numbers being heard is a true indication of the time the plane landed, then Sun, Lapidus, Ben and the rest landed after Dharma was killed but before Danielle changed the message, and before the Others moved in. Or the numbers started broadcasting again somehow in the present time.

4. So Marvin Candle's real name is Chang. Pierre Chang.

5. Did anyone else catch that Hurley's and Jack's names were already on the recruit manifest before Juliet came in with the modified one? Why was that? Juliet took charge of the list so it would be assumed that all the lists were changed to include the 3 Losties but it seemed Juliet only made changes to one, the one which she came in and saved Kate with. Or was it that she did make changes to all of them but was thinking about leaving Kate off so that she wouldn't have anything to do with Sawyer but then had a change of heart.

6. Why did Sun not flash off the plane and into 1977 with the rest of the O6? Many theories exist...

First theory: Sun didn't flash because she has to turn the donkey wheel again, to bring them back to present time. Everyone has to play their role...

Second Theory: It will play into what Locke did off-island. He visited Jack/Kate/Hurley/Sayid, all of whom went back to 1977. He didn't visit Sun or Frank, and he didn't visit Ben, Ben visited him (and according to Christian, Ben was never supposed to turn the wheel and leave in the first place). How they'll play that off? I have no idea, but it fits.

Third Theory: Maybe Ben couldn't return to 1977 since he was on the Island presently in that time period (as a kid). Could Sun be on the island in 1977 as a kid (and we have not seen her yet)? Maybe she is related to the Dharma intro video guy - Pierre Chang/Marvin Candle's. Could it be possible Sun was the Asian baby in the crib at the beginning of the season? Pierre Chang's daughter perhaps (Although most think Miles was Dr Changs baby.) and this is why she was transported back in time because there is a Sun already there in 1977. Same for Ben. Sun's father's corporation/business has some relation to the Hanso Foundation so it could be some other situation that had her back on the island in the late '70s.

Fourth theory: Sun was not taken back to 1977 with Jack, Kate and the rest of the O6 because she was not the same as when she left. (Not with Child).

Fifth Theory: Remember that Locke said that they "weren't supposed to leave". We know that Juliette, Miles, Sawyer etc. were always "supposed" to go back in time because they've impacted events (such as Ethan being born) which we know happened in 2004. If Sawyer doesn't kill the 2 Others holding Amy, it's very likely that she would have been killed or taken prisoner and never hooked up with Horace and Ethan wouldn't have been born. (Sure she could have escaped or been released or in a million other ways found her way back to the Dharma camp and resumed the time line - but based on what we have been shown it appears that they were preparing to take her captive and presumably killed to provide the justice Richard stated was needed.)

Had Sun remained on the island she would have died from the pregnancy and wouldn't have been with the group we now see in 1977. By having her remain in 2007 it seems that the universe is correcting itself and in contrast to Sawyer's encounter with the Others, it's preventing Sun from altering a past she was never intended to be a part of.

7. Random thought: The "adam n eve" skeletons are Bernard and Rose.

8. Sayid's purpose is to either kill Ben "not gonna happen" or save/help Ben in the expulsion of the other Darma people

9. A theory about how the show will move on to season six. Our survivors will obviously not be in the past for long. As we know (or think) Ben tricked Widmore in turning the frozen donkey wheel sometime in the past. I believe sometime this season, Young Ben tricks Widmore in turning the wheel. This will be known as the 'incident' that was described one of the old dharma videos (can not remember which, maybe the swan) because something will happen the 'dharmas' cannot explain. During this time, our survivors will end up back in the same time as Sun, Locke, and others. This should set up a showdown or give another story with the survivors all together for season 6. In the meantime, the incident will allow young Ben to blossom into the character we know him as today because 'the Others' will be without a leader for some time.

10. Could JACOB be an acronym for specific people who have special powers (and possibly become/are leaders)
J- John (maybe even james and/or jack)
A- Aaron
C- Claire/Christian
O- unsure of this one...
B- Ben

The Latest Lost Scoops

Enjoy.... my little Losties....

Episode 5.09: Namaste
Airdate: March 18, 2009

Ben and Sun return with Frank but things go differently for them. Christian Shepard shows the other O6 and Jin dressed in Dharma suits in an old 1970s photo. Amy is Ethan's mother (My source assumes that Amy is Amelia who we saw in the book club in the Season 3 Premiere). Jin and Sawyer see the first half of the Oceanic 6. The reaction is emotional. Source: Lost Spoilers

When some old friends drop in unannounced, Sawyer is forced to further perpetuate his lie in order to protect them.

Will Lost's Juliet Find Herself Betrayed by Sawyer?

Duggar Videos on TLC.com

I know if I'm patient a new episode of 18 Kids and Counting will be on in just an hour, but I've been watching these Duggar videos on TLC.com and wanted to share some thoughts.

Let's start with Baby 18. Nothing particularly fascinating except that cousin Amy says "You have no idea what kind of family you're getting involved in," which is the same thing she said on the actual episode. Was this some sort of rehearsal? Also, in the episode she happily says baby Jordyn is "fearfully and wonderfully made." Check out the wall words behind her in this video - wonder where she picked up that phrase?

Next up, the hilariously edited Dating vs. Courtship. Oh my gosh, thank you TLC editors! Especially hilarious moments include:
0:15 - Josh: "Our relationship was courtship, not dating." Cut to Anna giving a look like "What the heck are you talking about?!"
0:58 - Josh and Anna share a giant pickle while Josh narrates that "the emotions are there but... I love her so much that I would not step over that line" (i.e. the "no kissing before marriage" line).
1:12 - It totally looks like Josh is going in for a kiss!
1:20 - Sounds like Anna didn't get the birds and the bees talk until a couple weeks before she got married?! At age 20?! She thinks it's important to wait until you need that information to get it because a lot of people get it too soon and regret their choices. (I can just imagine their conversation: "He's going to put what, where?! I'm glad I didn't know about this sooner, I wouldn't have accepted his proposal!")
1:58 - Producer: "Did you Google or YouTube 'how to kiss?'" Anna: "No! ...They have it on there?"
And the horrible Pa Kellar throughout. "Ohhh, I'm in love!"

In Caught On Camera, Jessa breaks a commandment when she says she didn't throw a bagel at the cameraman when they were at the animal park! Then when she's caught in her lie (they probably showed her the video), she goes, "Amy started it!"

Jim Bob Says Goodbye is actually pretty cute. The caption says "Jim Bob is usually the last Duggar ready to go - now we see why," so I thought it was going to be that he had to wait for Michelle to cook him breakfast and shave his neck, or he had to take time to Aqua Net his hair or something. But the real reason is very sweet. Also:
0:30 - Jim Bob asks Michelle where the new socks and undies are that he bought. I thought they only bought used?! (Oh and Michelle has no clue. But they're with the D batteries.)
1:25 - Michelle has scissors to cut off tags, and she pulls a size label off a shirt. Thrift stores don't use size labels like that! Again, what happened to "buy used and save the difference?"
1:40 - Jim Bob stiffly tells Michelle how he's going to miss her. "Take care of the baby, don't let her come out yet." JB continues his rehearsed speech for the camera while Hanny gets antsy.
And at the very end, see how Michelle's "Shhh" technique works on a noisy little boy.

And finally, I think my favorite of the bunch, Kids in Charge. This takes place during the episode that airs tonight, so maybe we'll see what they ended up getting to decorate the bathroom, which must have looked so horrible that all they can show is a shower curtain rod with towels over it. I liked seeing Jim Bob trust Jana with the money for the project - too bad, as a woman, she's not trusted to leave the house without a group of brothers with her. I liked seeing the kids at "school" (and hooray, it looks like they do get some non-Biblical education). Poor John-David, he'll probably never get his plane. And Jana's face at the very end looks exactly like Pam from The Office!

You've Summoned The Fail Whale!

Check This Out!

It took 34 years, but Chevy Chase, one of the original "not ready for primetime players," is finally ready. "Saturday Night Live" alum Chase has been tapped to co-star on the NBC comedy pilot "Community," marking his first potential full-time primetime series gig.

The Sony-produced "Community," which is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, is described as "Stripes" at a community college. It centers on Jeff (Joel McHale), a lawyer who is back in school after his college degree is deemed invalid.

Chase will play another student at the community college who has been married five times.

--I love Chevy Chase and I love Joel McHale. I am definitely going to check it out!

OMG a Famous Person Twittered Me!

After learning that Jake Shears (lead singer, Scissor Sisters) was on Twitter, I immediately began following him. I Tweeted that I was excited to learn he was on Twitter and that the Sisters were one of my all-time fave groups AND that I couldn't wait for a new album.

Tonight... he Twittered me (yes me! personally!!!!) and said the new album is "coming soon."

Between a famous person Twittering me and learning the Sisters are coming out with a new album soon, I think I might faint.

Wienermobile Cake

Seriously folks.... my birthday is in July and I believe this gives each of you plenty of time to practice before presenting me with my very own WIENERMOBILE CAKE!

Random Lost-ness

Courtesy of PopCandy:

We know the sub is scheduled to make a trip in two weeks and the time that they're in now is around the time that Ben Linus and his dad show up. I'm wondering if the sub brings a young Ben Linus with it.

So, safe to say Ben is a child on the island when JAMES LaFleur is in charge - that's why Ben calls him JAMES in present times.

The statue was holding an ankh in each hand.... How fascinating, since it has FERTILITY meanings as well as the connotations of everlasting life....keys to eternity, etc. Hm.

One other source I found had an interesting twist:
The Ankh... is also known as the Key of the Nile, representing the union of Isis and Osiris. It is said that this mystic union would initiate the annual flooding of the Nile, providing Egypt with her various means to survive. The meaning of the ankh as WOMB, thus fertility and reproduction, is well-illustrated in this particular legend.

Now we know why Alpert was so intent on recruiting Juliet...because she already had successfully delivered a surviving baby and mother.

Something is still not right about Juliet. She knows more than she lets on. When she and Sawyer started making out, I was like, "NOOOOOOO!!!" But when you think about it, maybe they're perfect for each other: the con and the con...

I agree. I think Juliette is aware that when you leave the island, you return to the off island present time. My guess here, but the world is not on the same loop as the island, so it wouldn't constantly be jumping along the time string. Off the island would have been early 2005 based on the timeline we were folowing prior to the island disconnecting from the time string.
