Honestly, Three Minutes was a rather slow Lost episode in the vein of the bulk of this season. We didn’t learn too much, per se, but it sets up the two-hour season finale next week.
Buckle up, here are my thoughts:
- Eko’s purpose
- Last names
- 9 days supply of serum
- Alec/Alex Rousseau
Tonight was a huge night for Charlie. He lost a friend in Eko, he overcame a demon in the form of the Virgin Mary heroine and Claire trusted him enough to hold his hand and not judge him concerning the antidote.
Score one for Charlie (overall).
I’m really hopeful that Season 3 sees more development of Charlie. His character started out so broken and has been through so much turmoil just on the island, it’d be great to see more of him.
What did he see in the Pearl station of his Yemi visions that has him so sure about his purpose and the pushing of the numbers?
My opinion: he’s very susceptible to suggestion now that his 40-day repentance is over and Ana Lucia is dead. Eko is the new Locke and that scares me. Could he also be the new Michael, willing to compromise others for what he perceives as his own gain?
I don’t think he makes an appearance in the finale and I think we don’t see him until the mid-point of next season. I think he’s off to form some kind of alliance with Rousseau.
Why? She has the characteristics of both a scientist (her former job) and a zealot (her behavior/attitude toward the island). Locke is the same way. He started out as a faithful servant to the island’s will and now, given what he believes is objective evidence, he’s a skeptic.
Mark it down: Locke/Rousseau alliance in Season 3.
What was Libby’s last name? Was it Widmore?
Is Cortez (Ana Lucia) a clue?
Why the full, Christian names on the Others’ roster?
9 times 24 is 216, which is twice 108, the sum of the numbers. That shit is everywhere.
Interesting to note her close involvement in the dealings of the Others.
Why wasn’t Rousseau ever given a task like Michael’s in exchange for her child?
“They’re not who they say they are!”
“I love you!”
Perhaps more important than the first quote?

The compass is notched at 36 degree increments, or ten places about the circle. One occurs at both 108 and 216.
The woman silhouetted on the compass looks like the woman from the opening animation on the Hanso Foundation website.

And I’m spent.
Updates as I’m so inclined. Get some sleep and then back to thinking about Lost.
UPDATE: I fixed the D19FFTR731 code. I mistyped it earlier.
And all the commenters are right, Locke is in the finale, but I stand by my prediction that he and Rousseau are teaming up and that Locke spends some time alone in his quest for self-discovery.
Also, themouthpiece. You’ll figure it out.
