The island has a mind of its own. Some have said this all along and other fans sort of frown upon idea. Is Smokey the spirit of the island? This could be possible. Ever since I heard of a volcano on the island I've pictured Smokey rising from the eruption and overtaking the island by force. This is a comical way of looking at it.
All smoke put aside, the thought of history repeating itself to accomplish something special doesn't seem to far off. These clues that point toward time may be clues that are pointing toward this possibility. The Hostiles seem not to be aging, or at least Richard Alpert hasn't aged. Are these people real or just apparitions of the island?
If they are Real: They are a cursed people that can't get old until they accomplish their goal.
If they aren't Real: This would just continue with the whole idea of island apparitions.
BLACK ROCK vs. COCKPIT
An entire ship versus the front end of a plane can hardly be compared, yet they can be. The question of what happened to the crew of the Black Rock still remains unanswered. If the Black Rock crashed on this island and had to deal with "Hostiles" of sorts and had an entire crew then what happened to them? This is extremely hard to compare seeing that we hardly have any information on the crew of the black rock at all, but picture it. The crew of the Black Rock having to fight for a way off the island, struggling day and night against the hostiles and the smoke monster. The people from the ship are here for a purpose, but they don't accomplish this purpose, therefore the island gets rid of them and brings another group of people to the island. I am looking forward to hearing what you think.

My FAVORITE scene from this episode was when Hurley looks at Jin's "food" with such disgust. This scene is, in my opinion, classic.
In every episode, the story progresses. Sometimes slower than we want and sometimes SUPER FAST! I am not going to be very harsh on the second part of the pilot, seeing that it was the second part of the PILOT and in reality the pilot part 1&2 are one episode. The storyline that was setup right away was the radio signal. Shannon, Sayid, Kate, Boone and Sawyer trek through the jungle to higher ground, in hope of getting a signal on the radio. IN RETRO we know that they wouldn't be getting any signal and that they would be struggling with that signal right up until the end of season 3.
AHH YES, the mysterious POLAR BEAR. Sawyer started to show his heroic side when he shot the bumbling bear and saved his "pals". The POLAR BEAR mystery still remains to this day. Yet, they have been referenced throughout the show. Eventually, Sawyer and Kate are kept in cages by the OTHERS. When Sawyer is successful in getting a "bear" biscuit from the contraption inside, Mr. Friendly informs him that the bears figured it out faster.
Finally, we get to the mystery that was FIRMLY ESTABLISHED and to this day hasn't been solved. We take full notice of this mystery when Charlie delivers a classic line, Guys, Where are we?
SO I ASK YOU.....GUYS WHERE ARE THEY?!?!

WHAT?!?! A DOG?!?!?! How did he get here? Vincent the dog was who we saw next. I still think that their is more to this dog then meets the eye. He was right at Jack's side just moments after the plane crash. He was in a cage, wasn't he? I would love to see his flashback.
(Note: This isn't the best retrospect review, but there is better to come...I promise....just maybe not this particular retro review. :) )
Desmond is in the hatch just after forgetting to push the button, which we think caused the crash. He had been out spying on the resident button pusher and then murdered him.
We can't forget that the Tailsection of the plane was also having their own struggles, but their is a whole episode devoted to that, so lets continue with the pilot.
Strangers in a Strange Land
Our crash survivors didn't know it then, but rescue wasn't coming and they didn't know that they would be in this strange land for longer then they hoped, at least some of them anyway. A land that has more mysteries than the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, or Boxcar Children could ever handle. The end of this episode shows a very dead, very bloody pilot hanging in a tree and then we cut to LOST.
So that is my retro review for this episode. I do apologize as I know it wasn't really much of any type of retro review, but I know there are many more episodes between now and the end of season 2, so I have a chance to redeem myself. Thanks for reading!
NAMASTE and GOOD LUCK!
