In the end, didn't someone end up calling Emma a "woman of faith"?

Hat Trick episode...

Jefferson's house number is 316, which was the Ajira flight to Guam that led the losties back to the island.

Of course, the white rabbit reference.

Phuket shout out--scene of the stupidest half an episode ever, the gripping tale of Jack's tattoos. And was that an Oceanic plane Pinocchio saw when he emerged from the tree?

I went back and paused to take a look at the plane. It has a round logo on the tail, looks like a solid circle with lettering in the middle. It looks too different from the Oceanic logo, so maybe just the airplane was a shout out. ???

I was thinking the plane in general was a shout out to Lost. Especially in the way it was viewed. Its similar to Jack viewing it at the end. It would have been too funny to see that plane split in two as how the Others saw it though.

Apollo bars and 8:15 appear again...I feel like there was something else but need to rewatch with shout-outs in mind. I wonder if the purple smoke is named Berry (that is only mildly funny, even if you've seen the clip it refers to).

We're putting together a Lost summer rewatch in the Lost section of the Sci fi & Action forum. If you're interested in participating, this link should go right to the thread.

The mystery man was introduced in the same way as Desmond. Listening to music, and the musics sudden ending, was similar to Hurley in the first five or so episodes of season 1.

And a promotional pic shows Gold playing chess. There may be spoilers in this image, here it is, but probably foreshadowing.

Season 1: Focus on Emma, and Storybrooke and characters with amnesia (like Season 1 of "Lost")Season 2: Characters regain memories, and Emma tries to get them back home (like Season 3 of "Lost")Season 3: Characters get back to Enchanted Forest, but realize it was a mistake, and they want to get back to Storybrooke (like Season 4 of "Lost")Season 4: Characters return to Storybrooke, and fight the final battle (like Season 5-6 of "Lost")


Lmfao, this breakdown made my day.

Last night have had the most Lost shout outs since the pilot.
Tallahassee where Sawyer and Anthony Cooper, also con men, spent some time and the title of the best episode of the series (imo): The Man from Tallahassee.
Neal Cassady was the model for Dean Moriarty (alias used by Ben in Tunisia) in On the Road.
Portland is where Ben was born and where Mittelos Labs was set up.
Phuket is where Jack got those stupid tattoos in the worst episode of the series.
And, of course, Jorge Garcia.

Oh yes, and don't forget the Apollo bar!

What we really needed was "You All Everybody" playing on the store's speakers while Neal and Emma were "shopping".

Would it be too big a stretch to say Emma's keychain resembled the logo for the Swan Station?

When Neil's last name was revealed, it seemed like a callback to Cassidy, Sawyer's partner in crime who ended up being the mother of his baby.

Is it just me or is anyone else getting annoyed with the insane amount of Lost shoutouts? They worked on Lost. We get it. Move on. It's a new show.

I suppose, technically, the very fact that her last name is "Swan" is callback to Swan Station.

Is it just me or is anyone else getting annoyed with the insane amount of Lost shoutouts? They worked on Lost. We get it. Move on. It's a new show.


Eh, it's harmless enough. My husband and I were late to Lost, but spent months last year watching it on Netflix streaming at a rate of three episodes a night - but even given our enthusiasm for the series and our recent viewing, when we first saw Apollo candy bars in the Hansel and Gretel episodes, we couldn't place them until I looked it up on Wikipedia.

I would guess that there are plenty of us who will say "Yay, it's Claire! Yay, it's Hurly!" but need forums like this to point out details that most of us would miss. 8:15 on the clock tower? Swan Station? Lana was one of the guards that kicked poor Charlie's sorry ass on Looking Glass? Oh...yeah. Now I remember.

As long as Jack doesn't show up as a guest star, I'll be happy. If they can get Sawyer or Desmond, or even Sayid to show up, I'll be ecstatic. Other than that, I say let the writers have their fun.

I knew that Jorge Garcia was in this episode, he was my fave Lost character.

When Emma stole the VW Beetle, I thought it would have been funny to have the radio play "Shambala" as a shout out to Hurley starting the VW Bus from "Tricia Tanaka is Dead" episode of Lost. That was one of my faves. Hurley starts the VW bus

When Regina's soldier tells her that without King George's forces they can't beat Snow and Charming she replied, "Don't tell me what I can or cannot do." Not quite a direct Locke quote but close enough.

The idea that the curse and Storybrooke offer all of the FTL refugess a second chance reminds me a lot of Locke's descriptions of the Island as a second chance, chance to start over, tabula rasa, etc.

I got that, too! Maybe it's why I'm shipping Frankenwolf so hard, because it reminded me of those odd island pairings (like a Shannon/Sayid type both trying to start over). I like that the conversation was between people who are literally from different worlds who were stranded together at random (Whale is 'stranded' in a way that Ruby isn't, since she's at least got a bunch of people in Storybrooke she knows from her past life). And also because this fresh start is happening similarly in a bubble where for the most part people don't come in or out. Love.

When Ruby offered Belle the book, I immediately thought Lost, not only because of the title Mysterious Island but because bringing people--especially incarcerated people--food and a book happened repeatedly on Craphole.

BUT I completely missed Expose on the TV and Ajira Airlines. I blame it on the horrible, horrible muddy sound on the show--I have to use closed captioning to catch a lot of the dialogue but usually do it on the second watch. Turning up the volume doesn't help because the sound is grabled, not too low. It's the same with Revenge.

This isn't a Lost shout-out, but Snow and Charming trying to figure out the family tree kind of reminded me of Ginny's past life as Margene on Big Love, and Adeleen explaining to one of her offspring: "OK, here's how it goes; it's complicated, so try to follow along. I'm 32nd of 56 children, and when I married Roman I became my own step-grandma, because my father married Roman's daughter, Baylene. [conversation continues off screen] So, little Josie, that makes you my step-grandma, and I'm your stepmom. And when I had Alby he became my great-uncle and I became his great-great-grandmother. Which of course makes me my own grandmother."

This latest episode reminded me of "Stranger in a Strange Land"... Phuket, man looking for redemption, a newly introduced female character no one cares about.

So we have a fail safe now as well as Emma + Neal in the wormhole mimicking Sawyer and Juliet.

 

We have our "not penny's boat" people with Tamara + Red head guy.

Ah! I finally figured out which Lost couple Belle and Gold remind me off: Sun and Jin.  Nobody could really figure out why Sun loved Jin, but he turned out to be not such a bad guy in the end.

 

I hope Rumbelle has a slightly happier ending, because Sun and Jin's final moments had me absolutely sobbing, and there I didn't even really care about the characters.

The drink Gold pours for Belle is from a bottle of MacCutcheon 60-year old whisky - the fictional brand Charles Widmore first used to school Desmond on the reasons he wasn't worthy of marrying Penny, and a recurring motif through a large part of the series

 

We've seen it in Once before - Emma poured Mary Margaret a shot in "The Shephard" (in which Widmore/Alan Dale was a guest star, of course).  It must be a little cheaper in Storybrooke than in Lost land, because Sayid paid $120 for a single shot in a bar in Season 5.
