Decoding Truth Seeker 5314 20

Truth Seeker has posted to say that he has a copy of the transmission sent by Thomas.

He invites us to decode the signal, and I know that this is usually what we as a community are good at.

Let's have a go and if you decode it let us know in the comments or email us at

Update: TruthSeeker posted on December 29, 2010

Sorry for the radio silence, folks, I took a little heat for that last post. Apparently the Freedom of Information Act doesn't apply to classified satellite transmissions. Who knew? But bottom line, we were able to break the story first and have since decrypted a fragment of the message. Score another one for the little guys. We may not have the processing capabilities of the DoD, but we were able to confirm the following:

"PREPARATIONS ARE..." (in some kind of cool "code" font)

It's too soon to start guessing what the remainder of the message states, so our computers continue to run decryption algorithms, hoping to illuminate it ASAP. If anyone has any spare computing power that they could volunteer, please let me know. We've already burned through 4 server blades, an old 3.46 gHz processor, and two RAID arrays.

Happy Holidays to all!

TruthSeeker 5314 - Hot zone in South West Asia 5

Truth Seeker has posted a new article about an infrared satellite image of a mystery location in South West Asia.

This could be an island location or a mountain location, it isn't clear from the image.

The article dosen't mention what the site is, but the title of the picture is "infrared-missile-site.jpg" so it appears that there are some big weapons on the site.

Can you identify the location or provide any insight into how it might be connected with events in The Event, if so let us know in the comments.

Episode 8 Screen Grabs

Update on The TruthSeeker Blog tonight

"Almost a year ago, our good friend and contributor Madeline gave me an anonymous ESN number to clone and monitor here at the Truth Cave.

I did some cell tower sweeps, and it looks like it's a broadcast message that went simultaneously to numerous cellphones. Unfortunately, it was sent by a spambot that rerouted it through several offshore anonymizers that lead back to a non-working number in Sierra Leone. I'm running a code breaker app on the text itself, hoping to glean some insight, but I could use our collective consciousness for this one."

Click Here to go to the TruthSeeker5314 blog post

Update - The number is more than likely just a date 11/2/1944 - The day that Sohpia's people crashed in Alaska.

Episode 8 - 'For the Good of the Country' 59

President Martinez decides to personally interrogate Michael Buchanan about his involvement in the assassination attempt. Michael inadvertently reveals incriminating evidence about someone deep inside the President's staff. Meanwhile, Sean and Leila scramble to stay ahead of the covert ops that are trying to silence them and what they know.

NBC Announces 3 Month Gap to New Episodes

A short while ago the official news came in from NBC that The Event will take an extended break until the 28th of February 2011.

There are a couple of episodes still to come, but December, January, and most of Feburary will be The Event free zones.

Will this be a major problem for The Event as it has just got going or will it give everyone time to breath and catch up after the holiday period ?

Only time and a decent re-launch in February will tell.

Whatever happens join us later tonight to discuss the new episode, it looks like it's going to be an explosive one.

Fringe Promoting The Event ?

In what I am sure is pure coincidence, the Glyphs code in the recent Fringe episode Amber 31422 spelled out EVENT.

Will we see a Fringe / The Event crossover?

Will we see Agent Dunham take on Sophia ?

Will we see Walter square up to Dempsey ?

The answers to those questions are nearly 100% certain to be no, but we can always speculate :-)

If you want to find out more about the Glyph code and more about Fringe in general, head on over to for more information.

Little Black Book 26

TruthSeeker5314 has posted that a page from Madeline's transmission has been decoded. It's a list of women's names and a list of "codes". What do you think?

Little Black Book

Update - From the comments about the list there are some patterns emerging.

Firstly there are 13 names and 13 codes, and then there are the same number of blue names and blue codes.

The list to the right has just taken the black / blue names and matched them with the codes in the order they appear in the list, this may not be the right pairings, but it may be a start.

SG_Tess pointed out in the comments that there is some writing on the other side of the page.

A quick enhancement shows there are words there, but not all of them are clear.

Also, Simon’s past is illuminated, and his allegiances are tested.

Anyone who watched 24, where several of The Event's producers and writers came from, knows that if there can be a mole, there WILL be a mole. There's always a mole.

The Event UK Premiere 22nd of October 11

Only 1 day to go to the UK premiere of the new US show The Event. Don't forget it is a double bill with the first two episodes showing on Friday night.

The Channel 4 website has a handy countdown so you know when it is on, as well as some cast interviews and previews.

Still not sure you want to watch, then read Jo Garfein's (Jopinonated) spoiler free review of the first episode.

The Radio Times for this week has a few segments talking about the pilot, but it's probably best if you don't read Alison Graham's column, it isn't very complimentary, just read the episode description below as it is the Pick of the Day for Friday.

Remember for UK viewers, click here for articles on this site suitable for UK viewers who are watching at a UK pace.

Message to UK Viewers from Nick Wauters

We used Twitter (@Event_Community) to contact Mr Wauters (@NickWauters) who is the creator and head writer of the show, when we heard that the UK was showing The Event, and this is what he sent back to us.

Mr Wauters was born and raised in Belgium before moving to the US to attend a college in Ohio and then moving to Los Angeles as a production Assistant.

Clue, Coincidence or Clumsy ?

While you wait for the next episode of The Event tonight consider these two photo comparisons.

First is a picture of the two files that we know exist on Sophia, in a later file she is listed as detainee number 42, but the earlier file from 1944 details her as detainee number 70.

Then we have a comparison from the start of episode 3 where the RV driver crashes into the FBI car containing Sean Walker.

The RV driver seems to have a change clothes before driving and after he is crashed -

Then we have the crash itself in Episode 3, if you look at the end of episode 2 the RV is nowhere to be seen, but in episode 3 it is just a couple of seconds away from the point that the car turns. (click for a larger version)

Are the differences clues, is it just a coincidence or is it just plain Clumsy ?

Pilot episode Screen Grabs

Episode 1 - I Havent Told You Everything 136

Welcome to The Event Community episode posts.

These posts will be made just before each episode airs and can be used to discuss the episode as it is airing, and afterwards to discuss anything that happens, and your theories about what will happen.

Before you start discussing I just want to make a gentle reminder about the spoiler rules. Please remember that this is a spoiler free site.

The description from NBC of The Event is below, let's see if it lives up to the hype, and remember where you first discussed this show.

The Event is an emotional, high-octane conspiracy thriller that follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter, "The Class"), an everyman who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his would-be fiancée Leila (Sarah Roemer, "Disturbia"), and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history.

Sean's quest will send ripples through the lives of an eclectic band of strangers, including newly elected U.S. President Elias Martinez (Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood, "In Treatment"); Sophia Maguire (Emmy Award nominee Laura Innes, "ER"), who is the leader of a mysterious group of detainees; and Leila's shadowy father (Scott Patterson, "Gilmore Girls"). Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind.

The NBCTheEvent Twitter feed posted a message to say there will be a Q&A with Nick Wauters after the East Coast showing. You can use #theevent to submit questions and go to to see a twitter feed of all the questions and answers.

If you submit a question and get an answer let us know in the comments.
