Lost Spoilers Blog: "The Cost of Living", Season 3 - Episode 5 of Lost

Usual Warning: If you want to remain in suspense until the broadcast, stop reading now...

These are the pre-broadcast spoilers for Season 3, Episode 5 of Lost on ABC TV in the USA. The Clues blog on this episode is here: Lost Clues Blog, and will be updated after the broadcast.

Ok, another brilliant Lost plan will be implemented by the beach Losties in order to rescue Jack, Sawyer and Kate. Yep, they will go after computer power to assist. So, it's time to go, and go hunting for a hatch computer. The computer has got to lead them to greater knowledge.

Back at the Other’s zoo, on the Other's other island, Jack keeps working his psychological warfare angle from the the fish tank. Another way of looking at his strategy is "turn Julliette" - in case Kate takes Sawyer. It is hard to determine who is playing whom.

The flashback will focus on Mr. Eko’s backstory. From Spoilerfix the episode features Nigerian woman named Amadi who is intuitive and strong and has a son, a violent warlord named Azi, and a sweet altar boy named Daniel.

The title of this episode says it all. – the cost of living. And they are not referring to economic statistics! This is the price you pay to stay alive, or else you die. Indeed, the big rumor this week is that one of our favorite characters dies. That’s right Mr. Eko. I have to tell you I am pretty skeptical about this rumor and my misdirection radar is beeping away on it. The “official” rumor leaked out through TV Guide - who usually gets it right when it comes to Lost - is:

“Next week, a major character (as in a series regular) whose name is not Sawyer will join Boone, Shannon, Ana Lucia and Libby in the big island in the sky. And you're not going to believe who it is. I won't believe it until I see it with my own eyes”

The whispered rumor connected to this PR hype is that it is Mr. Eko who dies. Unfortunately the readers of this 100% accurate blog :) should bet this is a spoiler and one of the most loved Losties is a goner.

To the contrary, the flashback for this episode will be Mr. Eko’s. Why spend all the production dollars on someone you are firing? Ok I’m on the fence on this one, leaning to a bye bye Eko. As I said before, here, I would not want any inaccurate spoilers , so I may pull this one. For now it stays. We’ll see.
