Sorry folks, no video this week. I was just too busy to do one. That's actually for the better because it has given me time to think about the videos and they will be getting a makeover (content-wise).
So, "Lighthouse" wasn't very bright from a points perspective. It is the lowest scoring episode of the season so far but it still did better than Obama's state of the union address. (In case you are wondering, "What Kate Did" would still be ahead of "Lighthouse" without the double-points factor)
Things are starting to take shape for the Fantasy League and I believe this next episode will be critical in separating some pretenders from the contenders. Be sure to come back next week for all the juicy details! Until then, enjoy all the lovely content in store for you courtesy of 6.05, "Lighthouse."
NOTE: There were a number of point adjustments made this week. Any time we make adjustments retroactively, your score for the current week will look wrong. If your score looks wrong to you, check the Important Points Rulings section before emailing me about your "incorrect" score. Your cumulative scores are all correct.

POINT ADJUSTMENTS FOR 6.01/02 "LA X"
There was a little points hiccup in our database for "LA X" that resulted in Charlie Hume being credited with 40 points that were earned by Charlie Pace. This has been corrected. If Charlie Hume is on your team, your weekly score might look wrong. This is why.
POINT ADJUSTMENTS FOR 6.03 "WHAT KATE DID"
1) Claire didn't kill Justin. She only wounded him in 6.03, so we went back and adjusted that point tally.
2) Jin received a major injury. We couldn't see the end result until this week but we now know that it was a major injury.
If you have either Jin or Claire on your teams, your weekly total will look wrong because of these changes.
POINT ADJUSTMENTS FOR 6.04 "THE SUBSTITUTE"
1) Jacob gets Travels by Car points. In the quick snippet showing his encounter with Hurley in the cab, I forgot to give Jacob points for traveling in a car. If Jacob is on your team, your weekly score might appear off. This is why.
IMPORTANT POINT RULINGS FOR 6.05 "LIGHTHOUSE"
1) Jin passing out warrants an injury deduction. The thing is that he is not docked for passing out itself. That is a result of his current injury, which is already causing him pain. Jin loses 5 points because he falls over and flops to the ground after passing out.
2) Shannon's inhaler counts as a new thing. I had to break out the Season 1 DVDs to verify this. While Boone mentions that Shannon has an inhaler to Jack, we never actually see it. Thus, we are taking this scene to be Jack and Hurley's first time seeing Shannon's inhaler.
3) Each time Jacob appears to Hurley while at the Temple counts as a unique Temple visit. Had it been implied that Hurley continued to see Jacob the whole time, this would be different. But, it was implied that Jacob returned to Hurley after being confronted by Dogen.
4) Claire's skele-baby counts for points. It is a significant item within Claire's camp, as it shows the depths of her insanity.

Not only did we have 25 Fantasy Geniuses of the Week for "Lighthouse," but they all also had perfect picks! Granted, it's easier to snag a FGotW with perfect picks when only 4 of our 7 character groups are represented in the episode, but this is still an accomplishment!

Just a heads up, this section will likely be disappearing soon. I've decided to convert the LFL Update videos into something more along the lines of this section. That was always supposed to be the point of the videos- to sort of spoof or mirror an actual sports analysis show. Stay tuned for that. Until then...
The fifth hour of Lost is in the books and things are slowly taking shape. I'm not willing to write anyone else off just yet but that will be coming next week. This next episode is going to be crucial to those characters struggling to keep up with the herd.
Jack is really making this a footrace in Group 1. He's 55 points behind Kate now, which means one strong episode could see him take the lead. He's already got his flashback in the books and so does Kate. Now it comes down to longevity. Who has the endurance to make it to the end.
Sawyer is going to have a hard time working his way back up into the mix but I'm sure we'll get a Sawyer-centric episode somewhere along the line. If it's one of our remaining double-point episodes, then all bets could be off. Aligning himself with MIB doesn't strike me as the healthiest of choices but Sawyer's come through quite a bit.
Hurley is trucking along comfortably and a centric-episode will keep him right in the mix. Ben, on the other hand, is on the verge of being written off in my book. He's trailing Kate by over 500 points and trailing Sawyer by over 200. He all but needs to become the focus of the show for three straight weeks in order to do anything for you whatsoever. Ben is on notice. We'll see what happens after this next episode.
Jin finally managed to edge ahead of Sayid but both should have centric episodes looming. Jin typically shares his centric episodes with Sun, so that could hold him back a hair. This could also be bad news for Sun, who has half the points of Sayid and needs so screen time to keep herself in the discussion. If they continue to follow the Season 1 order for centric episodes, then Sun and Jin should be next. This would be good for Jin and okay for Sun (as any points boost she gets is kept in check by the gains of her husband) but it wouldn't necessarily close the door on Sayid's chances.
I can't help but feel that Miles' "That's it for me" line last week will be prophetic. I fear that he has run his course and will die before long. This is a shame, because he is an awesome character and also did very well last year.
MIB seems like he will be around for a while, so it's hard to judge him. His points are low but he's been climbing his way out of oblivion. If he doesn't kill anybody for a few weeks, he might find himself in the running after all.
Nothing changed this week for Group 3, as all of the characters took the episode off. Locke's lead is dubious though as I doubt he will be of much importance on the Island and will likely show up briefly now in the Alt, if at all. Those of you with Locke can continue to celebrate and smile but I think you'll be seeing your boy's lead whittled away piece by piece until you're sweating it out.
Bram is definitely still toast though.
Jacob is doing a good job at cutting Claire's lead. He now has just more than half her score. It looks like Claire will be a little more involved now though. Her gun-crazy sensibilities may play into Jacob's hands.
I still think that Frank is still in play. He just might be this year's come-from-behind stunner. As for the rest of Group 4, starting a run this late is almost a fool's errand.
This group is still wide open and will be for some time.
Smokey has the chance to work his way up to Cindy and Ethan because he'll be appearing quite regularly. The same cannot be said for most everyone else in this group. If Smokey can behave, then he might claw his way to a win.
Arzt is rocking the Alt but there is still plenty of time for other folk to make a few appearances, which is what it's going to take now to win this group. Time's a wasting folks!
