I've always liked Mr. Ecko. Now I want to know if he really is a priest or just thinks he is, wants to be or whatever... Did he go to seminary after the plane took off? Turn his life around...

I have a few questions, though. Why would a drug smuggling plane that took off from Nigeria crash on the same island that an Australia to LA bound plane would crash on? Where was it going? Why are the smuggling cocaine? They don't grow cocaine in Africa, do they?

BTW, I missed the entire recap hour (no biggie-- I've seen them all) and the first 15-20 minutes of the new ep. So, if someone could recap the first few scenes for me, that'd be great. thanks.

I like Mr. Ecko, too. I mean, he can stop the creepy black smoke thing. I doubt he went to seminary and stuff. But I wouldn't be surprised if more flashbacks about his life show him repenting for his actions.

Weeeelllllll... if you're the older, bald guy (I forget his name), then clearly it's fate (and the island.... dun dun DUN!) that brought both the planes down on that specific island. I think they were smuggling the cocaine out in the first place b/c they didn't want it in Nigeria. Apparently they're not into that stuff there. (According to Wikipedia, it's illegal to even be seen with cocaine in Nigeria.) Most cocaine production is done in Central and South America. Anyway, I hope we learn more about Ecko's drug lord connections outside of Nigera (perhaps in Australia).

That was like the most awesome episode ever! I think at one point in the show, Locke decided that the bodies of the drug smugglers must have been on the island for like two to ten years or something, so that means that Ecko was still back in Nigeria for a long time before the plane took off. I wouldn't be suprised if he went to the seminary and everything. Remember we still have to see why he was in Austrailia in the first place. Anyway that was like the most awesome episide and lost is the coolest tv show. I am completely and hopelessly addicted.

mr. eko goes hard in the paint! Someone said something about them getting off the island the show would end. Not so, not if the inhabitants on the island are the last human beings on the planet. Imagine they finally get off the island to civilization only to find all the cities deserted. Also I loved when they watched the film from the dharma corp. that guy whose behind it all is a total robot. that man is not human Edited by PadreSantiago

It was an awesome episode, but wow, almost jumped the shark for me when Ecko was nose to nose with the nano-monster. They better get the 'concrete scientific explanation' to us quickly, or I will expect Peter and the Lost Boys to show up next...

You are right--we need to find out why Ecko was in Australia. Did he go to Seminary or not, cuz if not I am NOT happy with him impersonating a priest.

And geeze, Claire, take a chill pill. Like Charlie is gonna give Aaron drugs in his baby food? Sheesh.

I think he really is an ordained priest by the time he was on the island.

At the very end, when Charlie asks him if he was a priest, he says "yes."

When he was revealing the hidden clip of projector tape to Locke, he goes on this 5 minute explanation of a story in the Bible of Jewish king finding a book in the treasury.... hardly something a mere gangster would know.

His brother made it clear that it took more than a signature to make a priest.. I dont think he would insult his brother's memory by not becoming truly ordained when changing his life around.

You knew the ship was gonna sink in Titanic, but you watched it anyway.

Titanic was awful. There was only one good part in the whole movie. ;)

I think Lost would be better if it was a bunch of people trying to survive on (or get off of) an island, and there were no ooglie-booglies or monsters of INDIANS or ghosts and other assorted things that go bump in the night.

Yeah, and personally I would like to know WHO on the island is doing the eyebrow waxing, root coloring and bleaching of white clothing items. Ana Lucia surely has a genetic predisposition to a UNI-brow, and sheesh, she is plucked neatly for spending most of her time foraging for coconuts and gunning down 'others'... and they sure have had nice clean clothes all these 40 days--good grief, my CLEAN clothes packed in a suitcase for a four hour flight come out looking worse than most of the stuff they are wearing, even if they have been in a suitcase, it has been 40 plus days at least, ......

In case you missed last week's new episode, ABC is going to run it this week right before the new episode. Hopefully, I'll have my VCR running by then and I can tape it! :clap:

please let them kill off ana lucia and claire soon. They are the worst actors on the show and they stick out like a sore thumb.

Is it true if you slow down the speed, frame by frame, that the 'black smoke/nanobots' that Ecko stares down actually have images from his past life in them?

I didn't slow it down but i definately saw faces in the smoke cloud. To me it looked like Walt though. See they need people like walt to stabilize the nanomachines! They need the guidance of a powerful mind....i think that thing traps your soul or spirit maybe i don't know Edited by PadreSantiago

Anyone wonder why Jack didn't ask the Other guy more questions last night? Like "How the heck do we get off this island?"

i remember when locke and boon first found the plane and the dead priest locke said something about it being on the island a long time like more than 10 years. That's plenty of time for Mr. Eko to truly become a priest and leave behind all his gangster past. They don't give timeframes on this show but you can bet there will be another episode for mr eko that will fill in the gaps. Edited by PadreSantiago
