Hope everyone is having a great Christmas so far. With a couple of days off it's time to start the semi-finals of the Location Cup.
All 4 remaining Locations are all on-island locations. There are 2 from Season 3 and 2 from Season 1. You can see today's matchup and progress so far below. Thanks again to Dharmageddon for the new photos for this round.
Room 23: The Cockpit, Hoffs/Drawlar Funeral Parlor, The "Leyland" Pub and Ana-Lucia’s Tiger Pit
The Main Beach Camp: The Four-Toed Statue, The Nigerian Village, The Fuselage Crash Site, Henry Gale's Balloon/Grave
Room 23 was a locked room in the Hydra station compound, in which Karl was kept as a detainee in the episode "Not in Portland". It is located in what appears to be a relatively small outside facility guarded by an ‘Other’ named Aldo. Karl was subjected to some kind of brainwashing experimentation, by being forced to watch a trippy video through neon blue goggles, and all accompanied by banging drum-and-bass music. He was also found to have been injected with an IV needle in his arm. The video itself contained various quick cuts of images and text, including glimpses of Gerald DeGroot and Alvar Hanso. We were also given a rather exciting glimpse of the text "God loves you as He loved Jacob"
The main beach camp was the island home to the survivors of the middle section of Oceanic flight 815. Sawyer has been known to refer to it as “Islandtown”. At first the camp was set up close to the plane wreckage, with our Losties seeking shelter beneath broken parts of the fuselage, and with some even sleeping on the open sand. Around day 22 the tide changed and started sweeping away the wreckage. Our Losties were thereafter forced to move up the beach to an area bordering the jungle foliage. There our Losties began to erect permanent shelters and huts. They were able to create a more confortable living space there. More recently the beach camp was set with explosives and blown to pieces in order to contest the attacking threat of the ‘Others’.
