Collision.

Let's talk about LOST! Collision.

(Click the pics!)


Ana Lucia is at the firing range. She's a great shot and very intense. She removes her headphone type ear protection and eyeglass protection.

Ana is sitting "as the patient" in a psychologist office. She shares an update that the family with the screaming baby moved but she feels it’s too quiet now.   Ana drums her fingers on the armrest of her chair.
The psychologist asks if she and Danny are still trying work things out.    Ana feels there’s nothing to work out, “He left.”
When asked if she’s okay with that, Ana guesses she’s one of those people who are better off alone. The psychologist asks her how was the firing range and how did it feel to hold a gun again.
Ana- "Very good." {Like she's enjoying a piece of chocolate! Bitch!}


The psychologist/counselor-"All these steps count, Ana. You’ve come a long way since we met four months ago."
Ana inquires if “She say...when I can come back to work?"
The psychologist informs Ana, “She left the final determination up to me.”
Ana- “Right.”
He asks her if she thinks she’s ready.
Ana- “What do you think?”
He gives her back her badge and welcomes her back to the force.
{Flash Whoosh}
Ana Lucia is standing in the pouring rain, having just shot Shannon among the whispers. Sayid pulls out a gun and aggressively walks over to armed Ana.   Mr. Eko tackles Sayid. {Listen to the voices in the background!}
Libby is yelling, “Eko!” {What the hell is she yelling?} And we hear Michael say “He’s one of us!”
Jin says something.
Sayid and Eko fight; trying to get a gun.   Eko knocks Sayid out and Ana grabs a gun, “Don’t move! Nobody move!”
It stopped raining.
She holds the gun on all of them and wants Eko to see if unconscious Sayid has anything else on him.
Eko-“What?”
Ana-“He just had a gun to your neck, check to see if he has anything else on him.”
Michael wants her to put the gun down; she wants him to stop.
Michael asks if she’s crazy, “Don’t point that at me.” {He rocks when he says it!} Michael wonders what her problem is.
Ana demands he stop and fires the gun to scare them. Everyone is shocked!
Ana yells for them to get back, “Both of you!” {Michael and Jin}
Michael-“Are...Are you crazy?”
Libby keeps saying “Ana”, trying to break her focus.     Ana tells Eko they need to tie him up. But Eko is not tying him up.
Ana uses the “He tried to kill you” card, but Eko’s answer is “No.” {He tried to kill Ana!}
She demands that Libby tie him, using the vines from the stretcher.
Michael’s concerned “If they take that thing apart we won’t be...”
Bitch Ana tells him to shut up.     Libby informs Ana that Sawyer needs a Doctor or he’ll die.”
Ana points the gun at Libby and declares, “I know what I’m doing.” {Although I think that it's at this point Ana is realizing her role is falling apart.}
{Flash Whoosh}
Uniformed Officer Ana Lucia Cortez strolls down the hallway to the doorway of an office. {Room 315. Captain}   The Captain is Ana’s mother.
Her mother gives her a new assignment in "Evidence".
Ana-“You’re putting me behind a desk?”
But Ana wants patrol; in a car!   Her mother doesn’t care what she wants and reminds her she was in an officer involved shooting and says no.   All of a sudden Ana decides to speak in Spanish and wants to know if this decision was made because she's her mother or captain. {Why change language for one question?}
Mom- "Both."
Ana insists she needs to be back on the street.
Mom is worried that if she puts Ana back in a car “it will look like she pulled strings. You don’t want me to treat you like my daughter, don’t ask me for favors."
Ana requests a transfer. With that one sentence her annoyed mom takes the assignment paper and signs it, telling her she doesn’t get the transfer, "But I’ll give you the car...Happy?” {Apparently Ana needs to always be watched!}
Detective Raggs comes to the door and tells Ana “There’s a call for you in the bullpen, they say it’s real important.”
Mom blurts out they got Ana a cake, “Try and act surprised.” {Mom just ruined the surprise!}
{Flash Whoosh}
Jack is filling up a water bottle from the beach camp trough.
Rose feels it’s good to see him out of the hatch, “You can use more sunshine.”
He’ll take that under advisement. {That line is from the book Pet Semetary. Lol}
Rose offers him fruit, “It’s good for the constitution. At least that’s what they say.”
Jack takes a piece from the bowl and seems impressed with the taste of the fruit and asks her where she got them. She never answers the question. {Could there be some special fruit on the Island. Actually, let’s keep that in mind.}
A golf ball drops into the trough. Rose and Jack wonder where it fell from.

Charlie stands next to Hurley as they watch Kate putt.
Hurley-“Past the hanging tree, double or nothing.”
He feels there’s no way Kate’s hitting the ball that far.
Charlie-“Hurley, the woman’s on bloody steroids.” {Injections. Growth hormone.}
Kate remarks to Hurley that double’s 10, 000 bucks. Charlie feels that’s nothing to someone who’s worth 150 million dollars, “He’ll build you your own course if you’d like.”
Kate wonders what Charlie’s talking about, Hurley just tells her to ignore him; he’s an idiot.
Kate swings!
The boys seem impressed, but Jack, who is walking over, claims she hooked it. “Try keeping your left arm straight.”
Confident Kate asks, “You giving me tips?”
Jack-“Kate...I’m...I’m a Doctor.” {Now that’s fucking funny!}
Kate wonders if that means he can do better. Jack feels anyone can hit a ball, that’s not golf. “Golf is accuracy.”
Cocky and amused Kate suggests they play a few holes to see which one of them is more accurate. “Three holes, no handicap, we play for bragging rights.

In the jungle Eko gives weakening Sawyer some water.
Libby
is trying to talk Ana into getting to the Castaway’s camp.   She tells Ana that it was an accident, they will understand.
Ana-"I killed one of them."
Sayid is tied to a tree and is waking up.   Ana tells Libby, “If those two move, shout.”, and she walks over to tied up Sayid. He demands to be untied!
Eko picks up Sawyer and tells Ana he’s taking him back to his camp.
Ana begs him not to leave, “If that were you he’d let you die.”
Eko-“I’m not doing it for him I’m doing it for me.”   And literally carries Sawyer off.  
{So maybe at this point, Eko wants change his role or is trying to correct wrongs or even penance for past ‘sins’. Hmmm}


Ana sits in the passenger seat of a patrol car with her partner/Big Mike.  Mike asks if "that shrink gave you any good drugs?" {Reference to being in psychiatric care and taking drugs.}
Ana laughs-"Not that kind of shrink."
Ana missed mustached Big Mike.
Mike heard about her and Danny and offers to go kick his ass for her.  Ana declines the offer, feeling its better this way. {Ana likes 2 pens in her chest pocket.}
All of a sudden Ana is pissed she wonders what they’re doing in Westwood.
Mike-“Thought a change of scenery would be nice.   Nice safe neighborhood for your first day back.“
Ana realizes this was her/captain’s idea.
A call comes in over the radio about a domestic dispute. “809, please respond to a domestic disturbance call at 22 10 South Veteran.” {Ana wears the ring}
Ana-“This is 8 Adam-16.”
Big Mike says it’s not their call.
Radio-“Go ahead Adam-16.”
Ana-“We're just 3 blocks from away from that call on Veteran. We got it.”
Radio-“Copy that, 8 Adam-16.”
The siren goes on and they turn and take off.
Where are you going?! What are you doing?!”

A woman is yelling to her man while she holds a baby.  He/Travis takes the TV that he bought with his money.   She calls Travis a liar! The cops pull up.
Travis-“Do something useless, Shauna! Shut your trap!”
They are shouting over each other. Shauna wants him arrested for stealing her TV.
Travis-“She hit me. She hit me!
Big Mike-“Hey, enough, all of you! Both of you!”
The baby is stressed out and screaming.
Ana snaps, pulling her gun out “Put your hands where I can see them! Get down on the ground!”
Big Mike-“Officer Cortez!
Ana wants the lady to take the baby up stairs and demands Travis to the ground. Big Mike commands Ana Lucia to holster her weapon; he is down. {Big Mike’s rank = Police Officer III}
{Flash Whoosh}
Ana Lucia sits stressing and obviously lost.   Sayid is bound to the tree. Libby tries to convince Ana to let Sayid go.   Ana says no, as she fears he will go after her. 
Libby-“You don’t know that.”
Sounding awfully satanic Ana says, "I killed someone he loves."
Michael gets up and walks over to Sayid and Ana demands he sit down. Michael doesn’t give a shit about her, he is bringing Sayid water, “You gonna shoot me...Shoot me.”
Of course she doesn’t shoot Michael.
Ana-“Don’t even think of untying him.”
Sayid asks Michael "Who is that woman?"
Michael-"Her name is Ana Lucia. She was on the plane, tail section, they all were. We were bringing them back." {Bringing them back! Is he talking about from the other side of the island or bringing them back to the "Island" on the "plane"? Hmmm?}
Sayid-"Where is Walt?"
Michael-"They took him, the Others."
Sayid is confused, "What do you mean they took him?"
Michael-"The raft, the night we left."
Sayid realized something huge, struggles to get free but can’t. {But why the hell doesn't he say 'I saw Walt?'}
Michael-"Hey, we're going to get out of this, man.” {Ana is trying to keep control of things, to keep it together. Not just with the group, but the entire situation. We can see her losing her control.}

Jack tosses a red tee to determine the starter of the match. Lucky Kate is first.
Happy Jack-“You know the lady's tee at my golf club back home is about 10 feet closer so if...”
Kate tells him to shut up; she swings. Jack calls her shot, nice.
Jack’s up; he swings and it goes right into the jungle. {Where it was supposed to go!} This amuses Kate but seems to trouble and confuse Jack. {Is he not really a Doctor?}
Jack uses the small stepping stones on the creek to get to his ball.
Kate-“We have more balls; you could always just take a drop.”
Jack’s got it. He moves the rocks away from the ball to prepare his shot. Kate sees something behind Jack and looks nervous.
Jack- “You may want to move. {see the look on her face} What?”
There is Eko carrying unconscious Sawyer.   Jack prepares to defend himself with the golf club.
Eko-“Where is the doctor?”







 Locke is in the Hatch working on a crossword puzzle in pencil.  
42 down: Enkidu's friend. Locke fills in Gilgamesh.


Jack and Kate hurry by with Sawyer.
Kate asks Jack,”Where are we headed?"
Jack directs her to the bathroom. “He's burning up. We've got to get him in the shower, bring his fever down.”
Jack has her go through the medical stash where there’s a bottle of Ofloxacin; little white pills. “Bring the alcohol and some gauze patches, and strip that bed and make sure it has clean sheets on it.”
Kate stares at Sawyer worried for him. Jack snaps her out of it.
Kate leaves and Jack tends to Sawyer's wound.
Locke wanders over and asks Jack what happened. The beeping on the countdown started. {Does he not hear it?}
Jack- “John, the button.”
Locke leaves to tend to the button.
Jack turns the shower on Sawyer.


Eko touches the Swan logo on the power box.  
The timer resets.
Locke steps forward, “Hello.”
Eko-“Hello.”

Ana is still pondering her next move. {If you listen very, very carefully you can hear Michael tell Jin in the background "You can sit tight, she aint gonna do nothing" Michael knows she's not going to do anything! And Jin understands English!}
Bernard asks, “What are we doing here” Their camp has to be close; he just wants to get back to his wife. All Ana cares about is how long she kept him alive out there. She wants them to cut her some slack. {Was it Ana's job to protect and keep Bernard safe?}
Libby wants to know what Ana's plan is.
Sayid- "She has no plan! She only has her guilt… and a gun."
Cocky Ana asks if he has supplies back at his camp.   He admits to having a couple of boxes (ammo).
Ana-“Alright, I want it...at least half. And I'll need a pack, a big one. A blanket, some medicine, clothes... jeans and socks {What is with the feet? LOL}...you getting all this?!”
Of course Michael doesn’t have to have her repeat it or write it down because he’s got it. If he brings all that stuff back to Ana, she’ll let his friend go. {Trade}
Michael doesn’t want to leave his friends, but Libby encourages him to go.   As their all talking in English, Jin responds to the situation, tells Michael to go {apparently he does understand English} Jin says something to Michael in Korean and he friggin understands him! {How long have I been saying they understand each other?}
Michael-“I’ll be back, man.”
Libby asks broken Ana what she’s doing, “You can’t live out here alone.”
Ana-“I’m already alone.”
Sayid observes Ana.


Ana and Big Mike park their squad car on a level 6 of a multi leveled parking garage of the station.
Mike’s going to sign them out.
Ana-“What? You talking to me now?”
Big Mike-“I just wanna go home A.L.” {Uh...American League? Lol}
Ana defends her earlier decision about ordering that guy to stop twice.
Big Mike-“So does that mean every time we run into some yo-yo with a TV in his hands, you're going to draw down?”
Raggs appears to inform Ana that they got her guy.

A man sits quietly on the other side of a two way mirror.   Ana, her mother, Raggs, a black detective and a man sitting at the desk with the two video monitors, mics and equipment.
Capt-“His name is Jason McCormick. We picked him up on an assault on an elderly woman in Echo Park. His fingerprints matched a partial from your crime scene. We questioned him and he confessed. The D.A. is ready to file charges. All he needs is for you to I.D. him.”
Mom asks for privacy to talk to her stupid ass daughter.
She asks Ana, “Why are you doing this?
Ana-“ Because it's not him.
Captain-“He put 4 bullets into you… hollow points through your vest...he tried to kill you. You want a list of his priors? You want to put this guy back out on the street?”
Ana-“It's not him.”
{Flash Whoosh}
Ana walks over to Shannon’s body.

Eko is looking into the stocked armory. {Ping Pong table, paddles.}
Locke asks Eko "What happened? Out there, what happened?"
Eko-"It was an accident.”
Locke-“What kind of accident?”
Eko-“A girl what shot and killed."
Locke-“What did she look like?”
Eko-“She was tall...with blond hair...There was an Arab man...”
Locke realizes it was Shannon.
Locke says "You said there were 5 of you from the tail section?"
Eko-"4" {Not sure of number of people, even now!}
Locke-“4. Why didn't the rest of them come back with you? And Michael, Jin?”
Eko-“They cannot come back right now."
Locke-“Can you take me to them?”
Eko sees the guns and says no.

Jack works on Sawyer.
Concerned Kate asks why Sawyer’s shaking.
Jack explains he’s septic. “The infection's gotten into the blood stream. If the antibiotics don't bring the fever down he'll go into shock. Hold him up.”
Kate-“Okay, I've got him.”
Jack tries to get the pill and water into Sawyer mouth but he coughs it out. Kate will try to give it to him but Jack insists he’s got it.
Kate-“I can do it. {to Sawyer} Sawyer? Hey, you have to listen to me, okay? The only way that you are going to get better is if you take this pill. So I want you to swallow it, okay? Okay, here we go. {puts the pill in his mouth holds the water for him to drink} Now swallow, swallow. Good, good.”
Jack seemed a little uncomfortable with how tender she is with Sawyer. “Nice job. I never learned the whole whisper-in-the-ear thing in med school.”
Kate lovingly holds Sawyer.

Back in the jungle Bernard informs Ana, "I don't want to be a part of this, I know everything you've done for us. I know I wouldn't even be alive if it weren't for yo...but I'm going."
He picks up his stuff and big stick and heads off to see his wife.
Judging Libby will leave too. After all she doesn't think Ana "is the best judge of character. I was with you when you put Nathan in the pit."
Ana releases them; including Jin.
Jin looks over at Sayid for an indication of what to do and Sayid nods his “go ahead and leave” nod. Jin doesn’t really want to leave Sayid.
They all move on leaving Sayid the torturer alone with Ana Lucia.

Michael runs through the jungle {stopping for a moment to get his bearings and direction} and comes upon Sun in her garden. She is shocked to see him.
Out of breath Michael manages to tell her "It's alright. Jin is okay."
Sun wants to know where he is and what happened, but Michael {touching her} doesn't answer because he'll explain later; he needs to find Jack. {What is up with these two?!!!}

Jack is in the hatch interrogating silent Eko; He wants to know where they are.
Jack is fired up over Shannon's death and wants Eko to bring him back out there to the Tailies.
Locke-"This man isn't the problem. He brought Sawyer back."
Jack-"Half-dead with a bullet hole in his shoulder, John! {to Eko} Are you going to talk to me or are you just going to sit there?"
Eko calmly replies-"Anything I say will only make you angry. So, yes, I will sit here."
Sun calls out for Jack from the corridor. {That lava lamp is always on! lol}
Jack is relieved to see Michael and they hug. Michael informs Jack they have a problem. Jack gets all cocky as he walks by Eko!

In the armory Jack asks Michael if he remembers how to get out there. Michael thinks so. They get GUNS! Locke thinks they should stop and think about this.
Jack asks Michael if he remembers how to get out there and Michael thinks so. They arm up with a couple of guns. Locke thinks they should stop and think about this.
Jack-"Think about what, John? Shannon's dead. Sayid's being held at gunpoint. You want to sit and hope that situation resolves itself, be my guest. {gives Michael a gun} You know how to use this?"
Michael says yes.
Eko yells for them to "STOP! Please. What do you want?"
Jack-"Excuse me?"
Eko-"Peace? Revenge? Justice? And you are going out with all these guns? What do you want?"
Jack-"I want all of our people back here safely. Your friend murdered..."
Eko-"Ana Lucia made a mistake."
Jack asks what he just said.
Eko repeats, "Ana Lucia made a mistake." {WOW! Another fucking person Jack recognizes!}
Eko will take only Jack there, and no guns! Ha! Jack hands the rifle over to Locke.
Jack-"Let's go."

Ana plays with the clip of her gun as she questions Sayid. He doesn't answer right away but then shares he's from Iraq and he has no children. He's un-impressed with her questions and wonders if she's going to kill him; he knows that's what she's thinking about.
Ana-"Should I?"
Sayid- "Almost 40 days ago on this very island... I tied a man to a tree and tortured him. I tortured him as I've tortured many men. Men whose voices I still hear at the night. Should you kill me? Maybe you should. Maybe you were meant to." {Like it's scripted out!}
Gun toting Ana {w/scratches on her right upper cheek} decides to share, "I'm a cop. Well, I was a cop. One night my partner and I responded to a burglary call. We were the first ones there. I covered the front and he went around the back. I was there a minute... and then this kid comes right through the front door... I tell him to put his hands up... and he's says I'm making a mistake... that he's a student.... and he wants to show me his I.D. I believed him. I just...I let him reach. All I remember was a pop. {Not 4 of them?!}  By the time I hit the ground I thought I was dead. I feel dead."
Sayid-"What happened to him? The man who shot you."
{Flash Whoosh}
Angry Ana sits in a bar. {You can hear the dialogue of a game being played in the back ground, "Who's up next?" And a song plays, "I'm on the outside"}
Ana sees her target; a young man with a huge cross on his shirt w/1969.
She downs a shot and follows him outside."Hey...Jason."

The buzzed dude wonders, "I know you?"
Ana-"...I was pregnant."
She fires 6 bullets {2 sets of 3} in to the dude.
{Tiny Flash Whoosh} "What happened to him?" Sayid asks.
Ana-"Nothin. They never found him."
Ana frees Sayid and drops her weapons at his feet, "Go ahead. Pick it up. I deserve it."
Sayid looks into her eyes, "What good would it be to kill you, if we're both already dead?"
He picks up Shannon, holds her close and carries her back to camp. {I cried, it's very heartbreaking. After all, they fell in love very quickly!}
At the hatch, Kate tells shivering Sawyer, "You're gonna be okay, you're home." {Yes! Damn it, they are HOME!}

Michael and happy Vincent {Has collar/leash} reunite.
Charlie is strumming his guitar and sees Jin, Libby and Bernard. Everyone surrounds them.
Rose and Bernard reunite!
Sun, {wringing out laundry and has to do a double take to see him} reunites with Jin! {I'm a romantic, it is all so beautiful!}

Unarmed Eko and Jack come across Sayid carrying Shannon...followed by Ana. Jack and Ana just look at each other.




Collision is a Great episode!
Collision, crash, conflict. Could it be about all those things? Maybe. We could be seeing a collision of interests and the "crashing" together of both sides/people of the Island in the literal sense of the word.

Vocabulary and Research...
♦  In physics, the word collision is a brief event in which two or more bodies come together.   The collision of the particles result in an exchange and a change of direction or transformation of energy.
♦  Puzzle- a type of mental challenge.
- A puzzle is a problem/enigma that tests the ingenuity of the solver. One is intended to piece together objects (puzzle pieces) in a logical way in order to come up with the desired solution. Puzzles are often contrived as a form of entertainment. Solutions to puzzles may require recognizing patterns and creating a particular order. People with a high inductive reasoning aptitude may be better at solving these puzzles than others. Puzzles based on the process of inquiry and discovery to complete may be solved faster by those with good deduction skills.
-Types of puzzles: Chess, Knights Tour, 8 Queens, Rubik’s cube, picture puzzles, jig saw puzzle, word puzzles, anagrams, ciphers, crossword puzzle, connect the dots, spot the difference, Tangram, Tower of Hanoi, construction puzzles, stick puzzles, tiling puzzles, transport puzzles, disentanglement puzzles, lock puzzles, folding puzzles, combination puzzles, mechanical puzzles, tour puzzles- maze, puzzle video games like Tetris, riddles.
-A meta-puzzle: a puzzle which unites or incorporates elements of other puzzles. It is often found in puzzle hunts.
♦  Tabletop games; Board games, card games, dice games, miniature games, paper and pencil games, tile based games(Mahjong, dominoes), role playing games.
Terms to describe concepts applicable to basic game mechanics and attributes common to nearly all board games:
-Game board —the(usually quadrilateral) surface on which one plays a board game; the namesake of the board game. Most games use a standardized and unchanging board (Chess, Go, and backgammon all have such a board), but many games use a modular board whose component tiles or cards can assume varying layouts from one session to another, or even as the game is played.
- Game piece
(or counter or token or bit or mover or pawn)—a player's representative on the game board. Each player may control one or more game pieces. In some games that involve commanding multiple game pieces, such as chess, certain pieces have unique designations and capabilities within the parameters of the game; in others, such as Go, all pieces controlled by a player have the same essential capabilities. In some modern board games, such as Clue, there are other pieces that are not a player's representative, i.e. weapons. In some games, pieces may not represent or belong to a particular player.
Jump—to bypass one or more game pieces and/or spaces. Depending on the context, may also involve capturing or conquering an opponent's game piece. jumping
♦  Space (or square)—a physical unit of progress on a gameboard delimited by a distinct border. Alternately, a unique, atomic position on the board on which a game piece may be located while in play (in Go, for example, the pieces are placed on intersections of lines on the grid, not in the areas bounded by the grid lines as is seen in chess).
♦  Hex—in hexagon-based board games, this is the common term for a standard space on the board. This is most often used in war gaming, though some abstract strategy games such as Abalone use hexagonal layouts.
♦  Card—a piece of cardboard on which instructions are given
♦  Deck—a stack of cards
♦  Capture—a method in which one removes another players game piece from the board, for example: in checkers if you jump another player's piece, that piece is captured.
Parts, pieces, and tools used for playing tabletop games: Coins, stopwatch, clock, egg timer, counter, pawn/playing piece, dice, (gambling) chips, (Play money), game board, game box/container, marker/peg for keeping score/tally, miniature figures, pencil, pad of paper, playing cards, collectible cards, rules/manual, ruler/measuring device, score board or pad, tiles, modeling clay.
♦  A refereed game could also include various aids to play, including scenario packs and computer game aids.
♦  Role-playing games can include campaign settings and various supplementary manuals and notes.
♦  A live action role-playing game (LARP) is a form of role playing game where the participants physically act out their characters' actions. The players pursue goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world, while interacting with each other in character.




We will explore video games, video simulation/simulators, magic and tricks again soon!
I used the term "Puppet Master" with this episode as to show you there has to be someone orchestrating all these things.    I called them the "powers that be" but maybe "Puppet Master" or "Maestro" would be a better term from now on.
You’re going to get very sick of hearing me bring up that there’s a blurring of “Island”, "Flashes" and “Outside world” images, words, people, items and scenarios.   What does this mean in terms of what we are seeing?    Couldn't it be that’s it’s all part of the same adventure/journey.

It is possible that the Tailies know things about why they are there on the Island and what their roles/jobs are.    Maybe Ana doesn't want this role anymore.    If Ana's role was protector, we see that role start to fall apart.
Was there one "collision" in the Tailies/Ana's 48 days or many?

Ana wants to go back to the role/job of patrolling in the "outside world" but ends up a killer.   Did Ana get a new assignment on the "Island"?   Ana could be in charge of patrolling the "Island", guarding it and/or it's people of importance, but still ends up being a killer.
I believe at this point she is unable to change her role because she isn't "getting" what the objective of the lesson is; she is stuck.   Ana doesn't know where she's going!  I can't ignore she wants a "transfer".  What can that mean in the scheme of the game...she must want out of her current situation.

Sayid the torturer is a emotionally tortured man and Ana is an emotional tortured woman.  Will either of these people conquer their pain and move forward or will one of them quit?   Maybe by the time Ana shoots Shannon she realizes that she cannot "do this anymore", maybe she can't be a protector because she will always be a killer.
Maybe she's still lost.

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? Good. 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. It will get very exciting as we progress into the story.
