    timing between the island and the freighter:
    freighter sends payload, Daniel receives it some time later (half hour?). This shows that the island is x amount of time in the past of the freighter.

    the dead guy arrives on the beach before he's killed on the freighter. Here the island is x amount of time in the future compared to the freighter.

    People left the island on the helicopter but haven't arrived at the freighter yet. This also shows the island is x amount of time in the future of the freighter.

    I think...? I think the point is that the island is still unstable in time/space, though post-hatch explosion pre-donkey wheel, it's at it's most stable point.

    The conversations via the satellite phone show that the freighter and island are in the same time. It's travelling to and from the island that causes the time fluctuations. The radio(?) waves are evidently unaffected, but physical objects/people are.

    From Wiki page:

    The title of this episode baffled many fans. Carlton Cuse explained: Really, we could spend a lot of time talking about the titles that don't make sense, but the title "Eggtown" referred to the fact that Locke fixed a couple of eggs for Ben at the beginning of the episode, and then there's also the episode had a lot to do with Kate's pregnancy, and pregnancy involves eggs, and so that was the other kind of, sort of metaphoric significance of the title "Eggtown".

    Somehow after all this time I never realized how much I enjoy this episode. So far disc 2 of season 4 is my favorite disc of all the seasons.

    Yeah, Eggtown's not a great title.
    It does frustrate me that Locke can be manipulated so easily.
    Ben must have had his lawyer make some arrangement to get Kate on flight 316.
    I just thought Kate was sure she wasn't pregnant b/c she got her period. I'm guessing women on the island still get it since they can get pregnant on the island, just not conceive.
    The ending makes me tear up how Aaron calls Kate Mommy. It makes me feel so bad for Claire to be away from him & knowing she is going crazy b/c he's gone.

    Kate isnt pregnant!!! The episode involved kates FAKE pregnancy
    Slaughter is the best medicine.




    fooling us was more important to Darlton then keeping the character's actions consistent with the plot.

    I just rewatched this episode for the second time only, and it wasn't as bad as I remembered. I hate the back and forth of Kate between Sawyer and Jack, but I can see why Kate would stay at the Barracks to find out if the freighter people had knowledge of her past. Sawyer helping her to get Miles to Ben was nice. The flashforwards were also not as bad as I remembered... it was interesting to hear the "official" story of the Oceanic 6 for the first time from Jack at the trial.

    I just wish they showed Claire feeling more grief in this episode as a subplot.

    So had the Man in Black already taken over Locke....I am confused as to why Locke seperated with some of the other surviviors and went to live in the Barracks....

    The Flash-Forwards actually happened right....its after the Oceanic Six were rescued....Does it ever show how each person actually died?
