Shannon was killed by Ana-Lucia.... I so knew that chick was just up to no good. I just knew it! Sure it was an accident Shannon and Sayid heard whispering, Ana and the other tailies heard weird voices and then bam, one bullet, one gun and one dead survivor. Up until that point in the evening, I was really getting a bit jealous of Shan's island life. She's got Sayid, who built her a hut which he claims he does "for all the girls I meet on deserted islands" (if that's true, sign me up!) and professed his undying love for her. Sure she's got hallucinations of Walt (who, according to the local radio station that played his ramblings backwards, apparently said, "The Others are coming; they're close"). But considering that Shan had been hopping from place to place for some cash because her step mom aka Sabrina the middle-aged witch cut her off from her dad's cash, island life with a little crazy tossed in doesn't look all that bad. But the flashback did definitively tie Jack's future wife and Shannon's dad to the same accident. Not too much consolation in the face of a lost cast member. Yeah, and back to angry Ana, clearly she's mad that the Others took three people and then two weeks later another nine from their landing site, but she'd better have a real good reason for being that ticked off. And did Libby make it sound like maybe there were kids with the tailies who were abducted by the Others, too? Is there some sort of Peter Pan/Logan's Run/Lord of the Flies society going on? In other island news, Rose is creeped out by the hatch. Smart woman. Locke found out that Charlie has a secret heroin stash. Big trouble. Claire thinks other people know more about child-rearing and taking care of Aaron than she does. Yeah, that's probably true, but she was supposed to raise this kid for a reason. Oh, and Locke, if you get off that island before early January, I could so use that lesson in how to swaddle a baby. I'm going to try to refrain from asking just where you learned your parenting skills, though, because, well, you probably wouldn't tell me anyway. Angel Cohn
