So, the final count on the Oceanic 6 - Jack, Kate, Hugo, Sayid, Aaron and Sun? Everyone in agreement?

I'm not counting Aaron... yet....

Did they confirm that the last of the Oceanic 6 were supposed to be confirmed by this week's episode.  If so, then I guess I'd have to agree.

I love this show.  The simultaneous flashback/flash-forward last night was brilliant.  And I'm sure that you all caught the date of death on Jin's tombstone?  9/22/2004 ... which is the day the plane crashed.

So in a way they are cheating here. Jin is alive but in hidding and assumed dead. I also don't count Aaron as an Oceanic 6 survivor. That means there is still one left. I have a feeling that these flash forwards are actually different realities that may or maynot have anything to do with what is happening on the island. I believe this because Hurrly keeps showing up in everyone's flash forward. For example, if he is back in the mental ward, how can he go to Korea to see Sun?

Not the way I saw it at all.  I figured the six were Jack, Kate, Hugo, Sayid, Sun, and either Aaron or one more survivor.  No idea what the heck is up with Jin - he obviously survives, but maybe has amnesia?  Weird.  Keep thinking back to Jack's testimony where he said 8 survived the crash, but there is an "Oceanic 6," which must mean that two people's bodies are recovered and appear to have survived the crash, but are obvously dead before the rescue.  What I want to see is how they are going to get around reports that all of the bodies from the plane crash were recovered, but 6-8 other (some live) bodies have shown up, so who are the 6-8 extra dead people?

How does how he "obviously" survive?

The way I saw it, he is either a) dead on the island or b) still alive on the island.  I think the date on the tombstone leaves his fate wide open...

Maybe he does die on the island, but they have to pretend he died in the crash, just like they are pretending everyone else died in the crash.  Or maybe he is alive on the island still... no straight answer on that yet IMHO.  Either way, Sun sure seemed sad without him.

So were they doing a flash forward with Sun and a flashback with Jin?  I'm so confused!  Also, we are supposed to know the the identity of all the Oceanic Six now...according to the preview they showed on 6 March.

If he is still on the island or dead, then they were doing a flash forward and flash back at the same time, which I don't think they've done before.  Not saying that can't be it, but I took the Jin/Sun scenes to both be set post rescue, which would mean that Jin is alive, but living a seperate life.  If that's the case, either Sun doesn't know he's still alive or she can't be with him for some reason, which would make her equally sad.  If they do know he's alive, seems kind of pointless to have them go to his grave. 

Obviously the writers have some plan to tie all this up, but I'm starting to get impatient to actually see it!

There were lots of clues that Jin was flashing back, not forward - his old style cell phone, the "year of the dragon" bit at the toy store (last year of the dragon was 2000), the fact he was working for Paik Industries, his goofy haircut.

Didn't Jin also say to the lady at the hospital when she asked about if he had children yet "No, I have only been married two months"  I took that remark as it was a flash back....but with this show - hell, you never know!!

So, onto next week....did the preview say that someone dies?  As in 'someone from the plane' dies or just someone in general dies??

Easy.  Sun's flashback happened before Hurley's.  He wasn't back in the mental institution yet.

My wife was confused by this too.  I thought it was pretty obvious that Jin's was a flash back and Sun's was a flash forward.  Of course the director wanted you to think they were both flash forwards but they were not. 

I agree, Hurly could have come to Korea before getting checked back into the institution.

BTW, congrats to whoever called the Michael thing way back.  Nice!

Yep. The preview said, the last of the Oceanic 6 will be revealed.

I think we have to give credit to the Michael thing to Tracy

Agreed, good call Tracy!

I bet Claire is somehow gonna die next week, and that's how Kate will end up with Aaron.

I would assume Claire has to die also for the baby to go to Kate but how does the baby get to Kate?  Does she get shot and Hurley goes and gets Jack for help and then she has Kate promise to take care of Aaron?  Is that why Hurley ends up with Jack and company when they leave the island?  I dunno....but this season is much better than last season, IMHO.
