Not really spoilers - I mean, just speculation, but I'll put it behind an LJ-cut anyway.
(right now, watching wife-swap - *L*!!! The spoiled-rotten heiress who spends all her time at salons and shopping - literally, folks - $4,000/week - is crying after looking at the house - the very nice, clean normal house! *L* This is a woman who has 4 nannies and a housekeeper - for 3 kids! BTW - how can you wear all those clothes? Does she wear everything once and throw it away? Now the other mom is crying, reading how selfish the other woman is - crying for the kids! *L*! BTW - the other woman? Does a bus route and spends 6 hours a day chopping wood (actually operating a machine that splits wood), as well as taking complete care of the house and family! This is gonna be... interesting. *G* Edited to add: And it was! I was impressed with how strong both women were. I was surprised by how the wordly New Yorker ended up being the most deeply prejudiced and unwilling to change ideas, and the apparently deeply angry rural husband was the one who was most willing to show emotions and see things from a new angle at the end. The New Yorker husband ended up being a secret "controller" - sarcastic and passive-aggressive, controlling by belittling with little "jokes". *sigh* I never would have guessed it. *L*! He says she needed to be more open and talk about the issues - but he always walked away! I hope the woman who had to deal with his snarkiness realizes the failure to get it to work was not her problem. I wonder what talks the snarky husband and his wife will have... *G*)
Okay - back to LOST!
More than ever, I think there's something "different" about the space around the island. Still sticking with my "rift in space (and possibly time)" theory. The mystery sounds we keep hearing sound like the plane falling apart. I thought that earlier, and confirmed it this time, listening to the sounds when we see the ripping apart (while watching what happens to the prisoner and marshal) - they were exactly the same. Which is also supported by what one person says earlier in the program - that the sounds are strangely familiar. Then add in the movements, etc. which could be caused by strong air movements, like wind shear, which could have caused the plane crash. And this could "suck up" something like the polar bear, and deposit it elsewhere. BTW, the one thing that wasn't done well on the show was the polar bear, which actually didn't look real. *S*
