I DO.

Let's talk about LOST! I Do.











The elevator doors open and out walks "Kate" carrying a red bag. She enters hotel room 752. {Song "Slowly".} The red bag contains a black box with her white bridal veil.
A cop knocks at the door. After a moment of role playing, her fiancé Kevin says he'll break the door down in two seconds. She lets him in; they're gonna get in on!
Kevin is a Miami police officer.













Kate wakes up in her cage to the sound of Sawyer throwing rocks at the lever and the recorded woman's voice saying "Warning" over and over.
She says "I thought you had to pull the lever.
He curtly replies, "I know how to get a damn fish biscuit."
Kate tells him go get her one.
Sawyer asks, "What? You trying to keep me productive?"

Juliet and Ben enter Jack's glass cell
Jack is looking at two X-rays. Ben looks hopeful.
Jack looking over file asks, "You took these blood tests? Made all the notations?"
Juliet nods yes. The X-rays are a week old.
Jack informs Ben, "The tumor on your spine is borderline inoperable. And at the rate it's growing that borderline goes away in about one week."
Ben-"Oh."
Jack asks if the O.R. they were in is fully equipped, i.e. anesthesia and sterile. Juliet says it is.
Jack tells Ben, "You need to be in surgery yesterday."
Ben says alright, whatever Jack needs is his. Ben is ready.
Jack laughs, he didn't tell Ben he would do the surgery, “I just wanted you to understand how you're gonna die. You think I believe you people? You think I trust you? That I'm gonna just do the surgery and hope that you let me go?" Ben looks surprised. Juliet wants Jack to calm down. Jack throws the file at Juliet only it's deflected by the glass cell. Ben is disappointed in Jack's decision. Jack tells Ben "Well Ben, at least you won't have to be disappointed for very long."

Kevin's badge.
"Kate” and Kevin are in bed. She tells him its bad luck to see the bride before the wedding. Kevin tells her it’s bad luck to see the bride in her dress before the wedding.
She had tried on her dress, "I had to hold my breath to get the claspy things to clasp."
They're getting married in 12hours.
Kevin tells her to "You might wanna get clasping.
“Kate” looks troubled, their getting together was fast. Kevin feels "This is right. I know it's real. I love you Monika. She loves Kevin.

Danny comes to get Kate from her cage for work.
Kate wonders "What about him?" referring to Sawyer.
Danny says "He's got the day off. {Danny's nose isn't bandaged!} Kate won't work without him. Sawyer tells her to work; the man wants to give him a day off.
Kate- "No Sawyer. We're a team. You break the rocks. I haul em." {WHAT? I thought it was the other way around? When did that change!!!}
Danny gets Sawyer out of his cage, "I wouldn't want to break up the team."
Desmond covers Eko's body.
Locke takes Eko's cross. Nikki asks what happened to him.
Locke-"Must have been an animal, maybe one of the bears." {So, did they not hear any monster noises or what? They ran out of the Pearl as if they heard it!}
They're not going to carry him back, they will bury him "here".
Desmond asks "Are we?"
Locke feels there's just been a few too many funerals lately, "Nobody needs to see him like this. I slip back to the beach, get a couple of shovels."
Sayid wants to go with him. Locke says no, he'll be back in an hour. {An hour? Can't be.} Sayid will go as it's not safe to go alone. They both take their backpacks.
Sayid asks Locke "What killed Eko?"
Locke shares with him, "The folks at the beach call it the monster. I don't really have a name for it. You don't believe in monsters." {He drinks from water bottle.}
Sayid- "I believe in what I can see. But obviously you have. So why don't you tell me what you think it is."
Locke says it might be what brought them there.
Sayid-"So you believe that this monster decided that Eko was meant to die."
Locke- "I believe Eko died for a reason. I just don't know what it is yet."
Sayid asks if that's why he lied; they aren't headed back towards the camp. Locke says they are, they just need to take a little detour first.

Kate throws wood on the fire. Sawyer is putting rocks into the wheelbarrow. They hear "Compound Breached" over and over on the PA.
Danny-"Where is she? Someone's on the grid. He commands Kate and Sawyer on the ground and if Sawyer moves, shoot him.
Danny over the radio says- "Yeah. They're here. Did the doctor get out again?...You sure?...Well does he know?...How the hell did she get over here?"
Alex is sling shot-ing her way through the work site! She yells at Kate and Sawyer to "Get up! GO!"
Danny holds a gun to Alex asks what she's doing. They're in a face off.
Danny- "You know you're not supposed to be here."
Alex is pissed, "What did you do to him Danny? I want to talk to Ben. Danny gives the OK sign and tells her that’s a “great idea” as she gets grabbed from behind. Danny wants her out of there. As Alex is getting carried away she tells Kate, "Listen. Whatever they say, don't believe them. They're gonna kill your boyfriend... Just like they killed mine."

Kate is chopping rocks, as is Sawyer. She looks at him. Danny is talking to Juliet.
Danny-"I don't understand. It's supposed to be two weeks."
Juliet-"Our schedules been moved up."
Danny- "Is that an order?
Juliet- "It's coming from him."
Danny feels "That's stupid."
Juliet tells him "It’s not my call. It’s the way it is."

Juliet walks over to Kate, she would like for her to put the hood over her head and go with her. Kate isn't going to put a hood over her head because Juliet said please.
Juliet- "No. I think you're going to put a hood over your head because the man standing behind me, the one who's burning a hole in my back. That man is going to kill Sawyer. But if you put this on, and you come with me, There's something that you can do for us that will save his life."
Kate puts the hood over her head.





Monika is dressed in a wedding gown looking into a mirror. {Red curtains} Her future mother in law comes in to see her. There are a lot of excited policemen out there so she's asked them not to shoot their guns in the air when you say "I do". Suzanne gives her a necklace. {Looks like a locket with something engraved} Suzanne's mother gave it to her on her wedding day, "She told me someday I'd give it to my daughter. But, since I had four boys…here."
Monika puts it on, "It's perfect."



In the church the two are about to be wed. The preacher tells the congregation Kevin's been coming to the church since he's little.
The Preacher- "When I first met you Monika, I was struck by your honesty and devotion to Kevin. And when I asked him what he loved most about you, he said 'Because what you see is what you get.'

The couple exchange rings and vow the vows... The preacher pronounces them husband and wife. They kiss. She seems happy. {Note the red decoration on the preachers outfit. Gee, ANY ORCHIDS IN THE CHURCH OR ON CORSAGES?! I'm just asking.}




Hooded Kate with Juliet walks down the hallway to Jack's glass cell. {Files that Jack threw are still on the floor.}
Jack looks at Kate. WOW! Such emotion! They go to each other and try to touch each other, only they are separated by the glass.
Juliet gives the two some privacy.
Jack asks Kate if she's Okay where are they keeping her and about Sawyer {Again note the fantastic way this is shot. The reflections (2) of their faces look like a hologram.}
Jack says he's great.
Kate tells him they are being kept outside in a cage and they are making them work on something, "I don't know what it is, but it's big." They're hauling rocks, etc. {Jack looks up. Possibly to see is anyone is watching/camera.}
Concerned Jack asks "Did they hurt you?"
Kate starts to cry. Jack assures her it's gonna be alright.
Crying Kate tells him "You have to do it. This thing that they told you to do...this operation. {Jack looks up again at camera.}
Kate continues, "She said, if you do it, they would..."
Jack wants to know what did they do to her and what did they offer her to get her to ask him.
Kate-"Nothing. They're gonna kill Sawyer."
Kate says that if he does it and does it soon, "they'll let us go."
Jack is surprised and asks, "And you believe them?"
Kate- "I have to."
Jack ends their meeting!
We then see the monitor room. They have been watched the whole time by Ben. Kate is still pleading with Jack; you can hear this via the monitor.
Ben tells Juliet to "Get her out of there."

Monika is wearing the locket while shopping for groceries. She takes a call from Kevin on her cell.
It's taco night; she'll be home soon.
In the rain Monika runs to a pay phone {PALMETTO Telesis. Read research of this, below.} She drops a coin in the phone, sets up an egg timer and calls Agent Mars who has been looking for her. It's the Feast of the Ascension.
Mars is tracking her call. She admits to him she doesn't want to run anymore.
Mars wonders, "What's his name? Does he know who you are?"
Monika-"Edward, please. I know you don't want to spend the rest of your life chasing me."
She really loves this guy. Edward tells her if she can stay put, settle down, then he'll stop chasing her. Then silence.
Mars follows up with, "But you and I both know that's not gonna happen."
The alarm on the timer goes off and she hangs up.

The hood is removed from Kate's head and she's returned to her cage. {She opens her eyes and they have to adjust to the light.} Juliet asks if she really cares about Sawyer.
Kate- "Where is he?"
Juliet only says,"I'm sorry you weren't able to help us, Kate."
Danny is returning Sawyer to his cage. Danny hits Sawyer. Juliet doesn't approve.
Danny-"Right. Sorry Jules."
Danny tells Sawyer if he "has anything to say to his girl, he best says it tonight."
Kate has tear running down her face; she really feels for Sawyer.

Locke is speaking at Eko's funeral in the jungle. He tells of when the hatch exploded {Imploded!Damn it!!} his prayer stick fell out of a tree right on top of me. So Sayid and I went out to get it, because it didn't feel right to bury you without it. I'd like to think you died for a reason, Mr. Eko. Just hope it's not too long before we find out what the heck it might be. Rest in peace, Mr. Eko. And thank you for helping me find my..." {Paulo shirt has birds on it.}

Locke pounds the into the ground with a rock to use as a grave marker. He notes Further INSTRUCTIONS from Eko on it: 'Lift up your eyes and look North. John 3:05.

Kate in her cage tells Sawyer "I saw Jack."   She also tells him they want him to do surgery on Ben.
Sawyer asks, "Who the hell's Ben?"
Kate-"Henry, the guy who brought us in." {'Brought in', not brought here? WTF?} She goes on to tell him he's sick and if Jack does the surgery, they'll let them go.
Sawyer-"And you and me are what, bait?"
Kate-"Something like that."
Sawyer feels the Doc ain't dumb enough to do it
Kate-"I told him he had to."    This upsets Sawyer! He wants to know why; that was stupid!
Kate-"To save your life."
Sawyer-"My life don't need saving."
She insists he's gonna die; Pickett is just waiting for his chance. Kate starts to climb out of the cage and tells Sawyer not to pretend like he doesn’t care.
Sawyer wants her to stay put, "Get down Freckles. We've already been through this."
Kate-"Shut up, James."
She breaks open the lock on his cage and tells him if you don't want Jack to save your life, then save your own. They're getting out of there. {Did Jack save his life last time?}
Sawyer tells her to stop!
Kate tells him to "GO! RUN!"
Sawyer feels, "You're out of your cage. Why don't you run, Kate? Cause me, I aint' runnin, because there ain't no place to go."
He confesses to her that they ain't on "our island"; they're on another island, like Alcatraz, a couple of miles off shore. "So unless you're a mermaid or you got a boat there ain't no point."
He was never going to tell her this because he wanted her believe they had a damn chance.
Kate passionately kisses him, yet she doesn't know why. That turns into some hot island lovin! {Even though he's filthy, unshaven and most likely smells terrible, that man is hot! Can I get an AMEN, ladies?}

In her Miami kitchen Monika serves Kevin two pieces of French toast; drinking her coffee. Kevin tells her to look under her placemat.   To her surprise there are two Oceanic plane tickets to Costa Rica. This is the honeymoon he's promised her for six months. Kevin wants her to get her passport ready. She looks troubled but she tells him she loves him so much.   Then we see Kevin leave for work.  As Kevin heads to his black and white patrol car, Monika stands in the doorway watching. She waves goodbye. We see her face/thoughts change.

Kate and Sawyer are in his cage sharing a tender moment.
He asks, "The day Blockhead was beating on me, you said 'I love you' that was just to get him to stop, right?"
Kate doesn't answer, she kisses him.
He says he loves her too.

Jack is sleeping in his cell and is awakened by static.He goes over to the communication box to try to hear what's coming out of it and communicate.
A voice says- "Try the door." {It sounds like Alex's voice to me.}
The door is open. Jack opens the door to the monitor room. {We don't see Sawyers cage yet.} He opens another closet door to find guns! He takes a gun. Jack turns and sees Kate in Sawyers arms in his cage on the monitor. Jack is surprised. All of a sudden Ben is there with Jack, he says - "If it helps, I was surprised too."
Jack turns pulls the gun on him. Ben doesn't even flinch!!! "If I were a betting man, I would have picked her and you. Well. I supposed this would be the proverbial nail in my coffin, wouldn't it?"
Jack tells him, "Tomorrow. Tomorrow morning. First thing. And everything I mentioned before. The instruments, anesthesia. Someone who can hold a damn clamp. I'll get it out. Your tumor. And I'll keep you alive. But I need your word. I need what you promised me before. I need to get the hell off this island."
Ben-"Done."

Daylight. 

Kate and Sawyer are sleeping in the cage.
Flash to Monika looking in to a mirror. She took a pregnancy test and its result is negative. She cries. Kevin is at a computer working; she brings him a drink. 
Kevin is "working on some IR's on that fugitive recovery out of Tampa. Being a cop is endless paperwork. He sips the drink.
Monika asks him,"What if I told you I was a fugitive? What if I told you I was on the run for blowing up my father, and it was only a matter of time before you found out?"

She tells him it's not a joke. Then tells him she almost had a baby. She feels she "can't 'DO THIS'…Taco night. I don't do Taco Night." 
Kevin calls her Monika and she reveals her name's not Monika. She loves Kevin but tells him she has to leave
Kevin tries to stand up and gets dizzy. She drugged him with a sedative because, "Otherwise they'd think you knew. People are going to be asking a lot of questions and I didn't want you to lose your job.
Kevin falls; passed out from her potion. She puts the locket in his left hand.


Juliet and Jack scrub for surgery. There are four X-rays up. {Camera light blinking.} Jack tells her it's a very tricky procedure and he needs her to do whatever he needs, right then and there, no questions asked. She understands as she’s always been good at following orders.
Tom is standing at the O.R. doors. The doctors head in.
Ben is prepped; face down on the table. There are two other people in the room. You can hear the monitor beep. Ben asks Jack if he gets nervous before surgery.
Jack says he used to, but not anymore. Three observers are watching through the glass observatory.
Ben- "Whatever happens, everything will be very different, won't it?"
Anxious Jack with a needle says, "No doubt about it."
Ben asks Juliet if Alex asked about him. Alex did not. They took her home last night and Juliet doesn't know where she is now.
Ben- “Well, see you on the other side. I'm ready"
Jack tells him to countdown from 20.
Ben- "20, 19, 18."
Pickett and the other Other leave the observation room.
Danny comments that "Ben put his life in the hands of one of them. Shephard wasn't even on Jacob's list."
Danny sees that Kate is in Sawyers cage. 

 It is raining. 
Fired up Danny says “You two should've run when you had the chance. Let's go, James."
Danny says he's coming with him and there's nothing she can do about it.

The monitor beeps in the O.R.. Jack makes a small incision in Ben's kidney sac. {Look at Tom's face! Love it!} The beeping gets faster and Ben’s blood pressure is dropping. Jack knocks out one doctor and informs the rest if he doesn't stitch it back up in the next hour Ben dies. 

Jack demands Tom bring his walkie-talkie in.

Sawyer tries to fight off Danny; has a gun to Danny. The other guy has a gun on Kate.
Danny tells him, "You let go, or I do her too."
Kate wants Sawyer to fight but Sawyer concedes.
Danny takes him out of his cage kneels him on the ground; he is going to shoot Sawyer. Kate still wants him to stand up and fight!
Defeated Sawyer wants her to close her eyes so she doesn't have to see. Vengeful Danny is doing this for “Colleen”.
Just in the nick of time Tom radios Danny; he's told to give the walkie to Kate or Jack will let Ben die.

Jack tells Kate they have about an hour head start before they come after them. Jack wants her to tell him the story he shared with her the day of the “crash” when she is safe.
Jack tells Kate, "If I don't get a call from you in the next hour, I'll something went wrong and he dies."
Kate doesn't want to go without him.
Jack says, "Kate, Damn it! Run!"




 
I Do is a GREAT EPISODE!


Things to Note...Questions to ask.
* Who the hell is Jacob?
* Sawyer doesn't know "BEN"
* Locke 'will be back in an hour'.  Eko's death took place near the Pearl Station {and the assumed  'Question mark'}.   If I'm remembering correctly, it took Eko and Locke hours to get there in '?', they even had to camp out.  How is Locke going to take a detour, go back to the beach and return there in an hour?
* If the “monster” decides who "dies", what is the monster basing that decision on? What criteria is this monster basing judgment? Maybe some people are getting to close to discovering certain things and the 'monster' just removes them.  Maybe they have to be removed before someone discovers there are more than one of the same person running around!  OMG! Did I just fucking say that out loud? lol.   Or is it when they find what they're looking for as in themselves/peace/closure/forgiveness/let go of something/grow/enlightenment.
* If Kate is a wanted criminal why- OH- why would she hook up with a police officer. Is that reality? Come the fuck on!
* Danny's nose is healed.
* Taco night! Santa Rosa has taco night!
* Hood over head-Veil over head.
* Juliet gets called different versions of her name.
* Kate drugs Kevin. She has also drugged Jack and tried to make Jin sick, (helping Sun) but Michael got sick.
* If there really is more than one “Island” maybe there are many more hidden “islands” or Layers/Levels. Maybe 6, 9 or even 12 other islands. What would be on these other “islands”? Hmmm??!!!
* Orchids…..What do you think?
* Grid. Timer. Bug.
* Black and white.
* Role to play. Hologram type imagery. Fake.
* Passing through the veil.

 
Vocabulary and Research...
* Feast of the Ascension is commemorating when Jesus' body ascended to heaven in the presence of his apostles, forty days following his resurrection.
* BUG-
-Computer bug. A software bug is the common term used to describe an error, flaw, mistake, failure, or fault in a computer program or system that produces an incorrect or unexpected result, or causes it to behave in unintended ways. Most bugs arise from mistakes and errors made by people in either a program's source code or its design, and a few are caused by compliers producing incorrect code.
*Palmetto Bug bug found here in South Florida. They are Friggin disgusting and they make me scream if I see one! No Shit!! "Palmetto Bug", another name for the American cockroach.
This bug can travel quickly, often darting out of sight when someone enters a room, and can fit into small cracks and under doors despite its fairly large size. It is known to be very mobile, and it also has wings which allow it to be quite a capable flier. Females produce egg cases and carry them protruding from the tip of the abdomen for about 2 days.
* Palmetto is a 1998 film Harry Barber, who is serving time in prison after being framed in a corruption scandal .uncovered widespread corruption in the local government.

* Telesis was coined by the American sociologist Lester Frank Ward, often referred to as 'The Father of American Sociology', in the late 19th century. Telesis is the theory of planned social progress, where mankind, using the power of education and the scientific method, directs the evolution of human society.
* General anesthesia in its most general form can include: Ananlgesia: blocking the conscious sensation of pain.
-Hypnosis: produces unconsciousness without analgesia;
-Amnesia: preventing memory formation;
-Relaxation: preventing unwanted movement or muscle tone; Obtundation of reflexes, preventing exaggerated autonomic reflexes.

*When you have time read about Carl Linnaeus. The French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau sent him the message: "Tell him I know no greater man on earth."



I DO. Kate takes vows with Kevin. Did she exchange vows with Sawyer, Jack or the 'Island'? Maybe all of the above. I Do" is a vow...so who else made vows to whom and for what. Maybe we're just passing through the veil.

Love to all who are "LOST"™

Disclaimer: I never claim to know everything about the show and my thoughts by no means make me right! The things I share here are my views and/or opinions. I don't claim to catch every single detail either! You all know I hate spoilers! And I stand clear of reading certain sites as to not take me off my own course of research. The one thing I don't need to do here is rehash all of the obvious clues from an episode; we all know what they are. Understood? Let the fun begin! I'll only note things that I know come up as clues later, but need to be noted when they first show up and things I find that will be of importance.
