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 http://nbc.co/cs 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.

Well it's the first episode so I'm definitely going to get the First ! post in :-)

Hope you all enjoy the pilot, it looks like it will go somewhere.

SG_Tess said...

LOL Good for you Zort! :)
Thanks for the post. See everyone here in a few hours!

maven said...

Yeah for Zort! Well-deserved!

As usual, I'll be 3 hours behind most of you! I know....whine, whine, whine!

Zort70 said...

I can whine louder having to download the episode tomorrow and probably watching it Thursday !

bigdog said...

Look forward to stopping in here tomorrow. maybe just maybe this can help fill the void left by the show that introduced me to many of you.

Zort70 said...

A quick warning, apologies if anyone posts later on and there comment doesn't show up, Blogger have introduced a mandatory spam filter and it isn't perfect yet !

If your comment doesn't show up try and rephrase it and it should appear.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I almost forgot it was on tonight. Yippeee !

Zort70 said...

I've just been looking at Twitter for #TheEvent and there are a lot of tweets tonight !

maven said...

I know, Zort! I'm following a lot of The Event bandwagon sites and almost every tweet is #TheEvent! They're showing the pilot in Times Square tonight at 7pm EST.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

can these be watched the next day on line ? I'm feeling really sick right now and am in need of bed. if so, I'll catch up on it tomorrow. I hope NBC is like ABC with it on line.

Black Swan said...

I'm here! I'm going into this TOTALLY SPOILER FREE, LOL.. I know nothing about this show except for what I've seen in the promos and what I've read on the front page of this blog.

Awww, Lisa, I'm sorry you're feeling sick. I would imagine they'll have it up on the network site tomorrow, but I really don't know.

Thanks for setting up this blog, Zort.

Feels weird to be erasing season 6 Lost out of my dvr. :(

Melissa_Lossa said...

Anybody watching live?

Zort - if you ever need me to throw up an episode post here, just let me know!

Black Swan said...

Hi Mel.. watching now!

Black Swan said...

suspicious character in plane

reminded me of Charlie, LOL

Black Swan said...

Oh, that's John Ritter's son, isn't it?

maven said...

Have fun everyone...see ya in 3 hrs!

Black Swan said...

Hi Maven. It's really thrilling so far. ttyl

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hi, maven! *wave*

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hey, Black Swan - how've you been?

I'm coming into this totally blind - haven't had a chance to keep up the last couple of weeks/months.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Yeah, guy on plane with gun is John Ritter's son.

Black Swan said...

I've been good, Mel, thanks. I'm also going into this totally blind. Gosh, it still seems unreal that John Ritter is gone. His son does remind me of him.

So far so good on this show, IMO

SG_Tess said...

Hi Mel and Black Swan!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Yeah, I like it so far. I feel like drunk island couple is up to something, don't you?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hi, Sayid's Girl! Or shall I call you Teresa now? ;)

Black Swan said...

Hi SG!! (waving) Do I call you Tess now?

Definitely, Mel..

MadAriad said...

Oh my! It's the LOST Event fans! Glad to see you all here - looking forward to this new show!

Black Swan said...

Hi MadAriad! Nice to see you!

SG_Tess said...

You guys can call me anything you want (yes anything lol) all the above apply. I just thought it was time to get away from my Lost name. Agree with the drunk couple too.
Hi MadAriad!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hi, MadAriad! Aw, this is the best reunion! I missed everyone. :)

SG_Tess said...

This episode is like sewing a tapestry together. ;)

SG_Tess said...

Whoa!

Black Swan said...

LOL, Tess..

that guy is fake! the pilot!

Black Swan said...

I get the feeling the cast on this show may be shivering in their boots if they'll be on the next week.. looks like they may have no problems killing ppl off

SG_Tess said...

Yep fake or from another reality/universe/dimension.
Your know how much I love that time travel stuff.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Was the pilot Layla's dad? Or someone we haven't met yet?

Black Swan said...

unless you want to be used as a live bomb...

Black Swan said...

Yes, Mel.. it LOOKED LIKE Layla's Dad..

Black Swan said...

oh that really is Layla's dad?
omg!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Well THAT was unexpected.

Black Swan said...

I thought you were kidding about the parallel universe, Tess!

SG_Tess said...

Oh yeah!

Black Swan said...

A real Black Swan Event!!!

Black Swan said...

That hour really went by fast! I hope it stays this good!

SG_Tess said...

I didn't know anything ahead of time honest. It was just a guess based on the promos and stuff at NBC.com

Melissa_Lossa said...

Ha - I'm actually glad I haven't seen much leading up to tonight. That was a shock!

SG_Tess said...

Anyone watching H50? It's sstarting of with a bang.

Black Swan said...

Yeah, Hawaii 50 is amazing!

Melissa_Lossa said...

I'm DVRing H5O - gonna try it out.

Any other new shows everyone is trying out?

Black Swan said...

There's that new show, Chase, opposite H50. Looked interesting, but definitely gotta go with Hawaii 50, Mel. I miss seeing gorgeous Hawaii.

SG_Tess said...

DDK said in an intevieew that it was surreal filming on the exact same beach as he did in Lost.

Melissa_Lossa said...

All right, I'm out - see you next week!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Just from having watched The Event, with all the promos, I'm already sick of Chase. ;)

Black Swan said...

Love Kim Cattral (I think that's her)

Black Swan said...

Jin!!!!!

Black Swan said...

LOL, Ben's bunny. Gosh, I want to go to Hawaii

See you next week, Mel.

SG_Tess said...

Night Melissa.

LostIt said...

Wow! That was pretty awesome! A lot happened in an hour and they still left enough out to keep us wondering "What the heck is happening?"

I'll have to make sure I log in next week so I can watch it with you guys.

maven said...

Starting to watch! Love seeing all you guys here again! BW, Tess, Mel, MadAriad!

Love the "23" minutes earlier! LOL

maven said...

As usual, no one's left here! :(

I really loved that WOW moment!!!! "I haven't told you everything"!!!!


I had no idea that was coming!

SG_Tess said...

Hey maven
Just wanted to say hi before I go to bed. Hope you enjoy. I did. Night.

maven said...

Night, Tess.

That was definitely her father as the pilot. He was being forced to fly the plane and do this because his younger daughter was kidnapped.

ChrisL said...

Not reading any posts so as to be completely free of anything when I watch the pilot tonight. Excited!

Hiroki Tojo said...

Hello from Tokyo, so Losties have been moved on to here?
May I join?

SG_Tess said...

Hiroki Tojo
Hi! Of course, you're always welcome.

maven
yep you're right it was her dad. When I rewatched I realized I must have gotten distracted a missed a few seconds.

SG_Tess said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
SG_Tess said...

Lets try that again. lol Always remember when changing your thought correct your spelling properly too.

and missed....
I've got a new keyboard and it's driving me nuts. I can't decide if it's super sensitive or not sensitive enough. I get double spacing and missed letters and sometimes I have to hit the shift key just right to get it to capitalize.

Now for some hot tea to wake me up. :)

Scoutpost said...

Hey everybody! So glad to have a place to talk about The Event. I haven't watched it yet, but hope to later today. Will chime in when I do. Great to see all the gang's here!

maven said...

Welcome to Hiroki!! And good to you here, Scoutpost!

So I'm thinking the "people" who kidnapped the two Buchanan sisters might be a kind of resistance group from the 97 detainees? Or a group trying to stop the President from releasing them?

ib4uc said...

Hey LoCos... I mean Eventees? It's good to see everyone again.

Got to see most of the show. Sometimes I just wanna throw my phone out the window when it interrupts my TV time.

Loved it! Can't wait til next week.

ChrisL said...

WOW! I am convinced! That was great.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I just finally watched it and your right Chris, it was great ! Almost very Lost like as well. The disappearing airplane was a bit funny. I wonder where all the people went ! Looks good for sure.

LotteryTicket said...

First, hi everyone. Not sure how much I'll post here, just think I'll read and lurk a bit. I can't say that I loved the show, it was ok. I bit too choppy in the editing. I did take notes. Most were LOST-like pickups (habit), numbers, repeated lines, "my friend", colors, shapes, you know the stuff.

And as for the big twist, well, not really so big. And frankly I was a bit disturbed by the use of kidnapping children/murder of wife as leverage to hijack plane for supposed attack on either the President or Shopia so close to events of 911. Pretty insensitive.

Read somewhere that The Event is like mash up of Heroes/FlashForward/Lost. I think that's about right.

Well, I am glad that the scifi part of the show happened up front and didn't linger in political coverup storyline. Are we agreed that what made the plane jump in time/space is the event?

ChrisL said...

LT. Thank goodness for you and your note taking. We know that's going to come in very useful ;-)

You may have noticed, I quite like choppy editing!

Not sure that the plane jump is THE Event? Is it?

maven said...

I saw a promo saying that the plane "crash" was NOT The Event.

maven said...

There's a new video on The Truthseeker blog from a passenger on the plane. I made a post for it.

Just Thinking said...

Hi all- didn't get to watch until next day, so popping in now. Thanks for getting us going here Maven.

Not sure yet if I'll be pulled in, but the disappearing plane made me smile for some reason- I enjoyed that.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

me too JT, I actually laughed out loud. My bf keeps saying that he thinks it will be better than lost lol silly man.

maven said...

That was some WOW moment!

Remember, tomorrow is 9/22! 6 years ago another plane was important in a tv show!!

SG_Tess said...

Oh my I'm behind on comments. Thanks for the video link maven.
I noticed something a little disturbing on twitter but I don't know if I should post it here. It could be considered a spoiler. It's from 2 of the charater accounts. JBlovesMarla and Greg Kervin.

maven I know you follow some of them. Do you follow these two? If you have time you can check it out and decide if it should be posted here.

LT
I'm not sure what appeared to be a wormhole is the event. It could be though.

Last night I was talking about another reality universe or dimension. But I'm not sure any of those are the case. I said this based on the name of the show. Ever since I heard the name it made me think of event horizon. That's why I chose a black hole event horizon for my avi. However if any of these are part of the show or time travel I wouldn't be disappointed.

But I really don't think the main theme will be scifi. I think it will be the coverup. I wouldn't mind that either.

maven said...

Thanks, Tess. Yes, I follow the character's tweets. I'm not sure if this would be a spoiler or not...maybe Zort can decide for us! :)

And I agree with you about the cover-up. The VP, Gen. Whitman and Director Sterling were curiously absent from the Coral Gables press conference about to take place.

SG_Tess said...

Sounds like a good idea maven.
Do you think Simon was talking to the air force pilots when he said if you're going to do it you have to do it now. Or to whoever opened the wormhole?

ObFuSc8 said...

Hiya peeps!

Happy LOST 9.22 day to all of you LOSTies across the pond or otherwise in the future. I have a busy day tomorrow but hope I can join in for the H00t LOST Pilot RW.

I watched The Event last night but hadn't had time to post here until now. I'm intrigued enough to keep watching. I didn't mind the flashbacks and fragmented timeline I've seen some complaints about, but think the edits could have been better, smoother. The chirons telling us where in the timeline we were, while efficient weren't exactly elegant. I would have preferred more subtle indicators of the date (dialogue, news clips, magazines) but see that may have been difficult with number of flashbacks in the pilot ep.

I have been very careful not to compare The Event to LOST, but couldn't help myself at certain points -- like when "23 minutes earlier" popped up on the screen, and probably like all of you saw flashes of our beloved bloody rock god when the Avias Air flight attendant was asking Sean Walker to come out of the bathroom and sit down.

The score was lacking, but then we've been spoiled by the genius that is Giacchino.

They wove enough questions and suspense into the pilot ep to keep me watching, and I'm curious to see how/if next week's ep differs since their show runner came on board at Ep2.

I have a bunch of thoughts/theories about the episode rattling around my brain. This is already getting long, so I'll put them in the next comment.

ObFuSc8 said...

Maven and Tess -- I don't think of the character tweets as spoilers, but then it's kind of a gray area.

Sean Walker's character is supposed to be an everyman, geek-boy next door that stumbles into all of this. But the character bios on the NBC site hint that something happened to his family when he was 10. I wonder if his parents were somehow connected (trying to uncover The Event or free Inostranka detainees)? He's an MIT trained computer programmer, but self proclaimed "former (mostly) reformed hacker". I'm sure his hacking skills will come in handy and wonder if he'd already hacked into files concerning The Event but didn't know it.

I did think it was a little odd that he left sick/hungover Leila alone when he was about to propose to her, but could see her telling him to go ahead with out her.

I figure that blue bag Sean shoved (or pulled out of) the garbage in the plane's bathroom had the gun already hidden in it - but who left it on the plane? I'm sure they'll fill in more of what happened between when Sean ran away from cruise ship security and ended up on Avias 514 in the next ep.

ObFuSc8 said...

Vicki Roberts seems overly flaky to me. One minute she's mysteriously drowning and then just a few hours later decides she wants Sean and Leila to go snorkeling with her the next day. How many people would want to get anywhere near an ocean when they have just nearly drown?

I don't think we should just dismiss this as poor character development. Vicki/Greg seemed to cozy up to Sean/Leila a little too quickly. I think Vicki is somehow involved with Leila's disappearance. I'm not sure what I think of Greg yet, but it would be a twist if he was there for another faction (a faction other than whoever Vicki is working with).

maven said...

Good observations, Ob. I agree that Vicki/Greg definitely seem connected somehow especially with the tweet on Greg's account today. That cast looked phony and they needed to get Sean away from Leila. Also how does someone get onto the ship and then suddenly they're not in the computer? You need to swipe your card that's also your key to get on board.

ObFuSc8 said...

Who is "TruthSeeker5314"? I'm not sure if that will matter, or if it will even turn out to be one of our main characters. I supposed they could just be an unknown conspiracy theorist, but the post on the blog "My position grants me access to highly sensitive information" makes me think it will be someone we've already seen, or will see within the next couple episodes.

My first thought was that "5314" indicated that it had to be someone who was connected to that room on the cruise ship -- Sean/Leila/Vicki/Greg/JB/Marla. But then the "5314" may just reference what happened in Room 5314/Leila's disappearance as what got the blogger to delve into the cover-up.

ObFuSc8 said...

Thanks maven!

Seems to me whoever orchestrated Leila's disappearance also wiped Sean/Leila booking out of the cruise ship's computer.

I don't think Vick and Greg are working together, though. While some of this is from the character's twitter feed, it seems like Vicki's the one who got them on the cruise and contributed to Greg's broken arm.

ObFuSc8 said...

maven said...

I'm skeptical of the truthseeker5314 blog since it's got NBC written all over it! LOL Not like our dear sweet Rachel Blake!

ObFuSc8 said...

I agree with what maven & Tess have already posted about the VP/Sterling/Whitman being so conspicuously absent just before the beginning of the press conference -- having left hours earlier.

The VP/Sterling/Whitman definitely knew about the assassination attempt, but were they involved in orchestrating it?

At this point, it seems most likely that these 3 were involved in setting up the assassination attempt. But then why would Simon Lee be trying to stop the plane? And what would it say that a US General, Director of National Intelligence and VP would be willing to have a sitting POTUS assassinated and murder hundreds of innocent people in the process? It is possible that there are more powerful figures that would do almost anything to prevent the release of the Inostranka prisoners/keep whatever The Event is a secret and the VP/Sterling/Whitman only knew what was going to happen and left choosing to save themselves and benefit from the consequences.

ObFuSc8 said...

maven -- I share your skepticism about the truthseeker blog, but then the Inostranka map page and official Wiki are all directly linked to the NBC page. I doubt the online/virtual component for The Event will be anything nearly as complex as TLE and I think NBC is trying to keep thing simple.

Tess -- I wondered the same thing as I watched Avias 514 disappear into the vortex/wormhole. I guess it could go either way, Simon is CIA but seems connected to Sophia/Inostranka.

Lotto -- I don't think Avias 514 disappearing into that vortex/wormhole (or being teleported away) is THE Event -- it's an event, a WTF moment, but not THE Event. Since they wouldn't kill off Sean Walker's character in the pilot ep (tee hee or have the plane crash on an Island) I think we'll see what happened to the plane (or at least the passengers) next week.

ObFuSc8 said...

Something about what the POTUS said to the VP/Sterling/Whitman about the Inostranka detainees kept bugging me and I couldn't sleep,so I just RW that scene.
----------------------------------------
POTUS Martinez:
Now is the perfect time. It's not about the rights of the few. This is about HUMAN rights. Now these people may not be AMERICANS, but we are. Look what we have done to them. We've abused them, we've detained them illegally after all this time. That's not what this country is about, not anymore.

Later in the convo:
VP Jarvis:
Eli, what it comes down to is, we don't have enough information to feel safe enough to let them out.

Sterling:
Alright, fine. Let the public find out. Just, please Eli, don't let them out.
----------------------------------------

From the flashback to his visit to the Mt. Inostranka facility
POTUS Martinez:
I also want to see their living quarters and RESEARCH lab.
----------------------------------------

The Event Dossier from Comic Con refers to the detainees as "survivors that were apprehended". The Dossier later comments, "Even though we have suspected substantial differences" and "These recent developments are all unquestionable related to increased activity among the detainees."
----------------------------------------

So the Inostranka detainees:
-Are human
-Aren't American
-Are allowed research labs
-May have special "abilities"
-VP & Jarvis admit to not having enough info about detainees
-VP & Jarvis are fine with the public finding out about detainees, as long as they remain imprisoned.

I doubt the detainees are just a bunch of "foreign" scientists who know too much. And, the thing is, Sophia Maguire seems quite American in her accent and mannerisms. The look on Sophia's face when she saw Avias 514 disappear and said, "They saved us" reminded me of Ben when he thought the Island had brought about Locke's resurrection -- something Sophia never thought she'd see happen.

The detainees are "us" but at the same time not us, somehow different. Which leaves just a few possibilities:
-People that left Earth at some point, returning in 1944
-People that have lived in some inaccessible place on Earth (tee hee...like the Island)
-People from another dimension/ALT-verse/future

While the detainees may have unique abilities that are genetic in origin, they can't just be a group of people who manifested random mutations -- there would have to be SOME Americans within the group if that were the case.

If whoever created the vortex/wormhole that caused Arias 514 to disappear is linked to the detainees, why can't THEY just do the same for the detainees and get them out of Inostranka?

ObFuSc8 said...

I guess all we know is what the characters know, and it could turn out later that the detainees are humanoid (not human) and no one knew that at the time of the Dossier/above discussions.

Meh.

Happy 9.22 youalleverybody. Must sleep now.

ChrisL said...

Excellent comments/thoughts. Just like old times. Happy anniversary all.

Zort70 said...

Hurley : Dude did you see that video of a new TV show that washed up on the shore the other day ?

Ben : Yes, but that's nothing, I once made a whole island disappear.

Zort70 said...

Hi to all the familiar faces and any new faces :-)

Very interesting first episode, and the producers have said a lot of questions are answered in the second episode, so at the moment I'm still not sure what this is abut, but I'm ready to be led on a journey.

The original character tweets makes some sense now, although I'm not sure what they added.

Does anyone think the plane went to the past and all the people on it ended up at Mt Inostranka ?

Zort70 said...

I think the character tweets and Truthseeker blog are more like companion elements to give slightly more depth, rather than extra or hidden story.

SG_Tess said...

Good Morning
Zort
I agree with the tweets and the Truthseeker site. The tweets I think give little sneak peeks into the next episode and I wasn't sure if that would bother some of the people here.

I'll email you what I'm talking about.

Just Thinking said...

I wonder how Truthseeker could get a plane video as the plane has vanished?

Trying to sort the forces involved. There is the Prez-for outing the Event. The detainees- also trying to get freed. The CIA & govt forces- for containment. It may also be the CIA that did the killing, kidnapping and jamming of communications. Then, the "others" who created the portal.

More murky is who was messing with Sean and Leila, meaning what faction, and whose side is Simon on? When Sean was looking out the window- was he really hoping for Simon to catch up to the plane and stop it- rather than it getting away?

SG_Tess said...

I;d like to know what happened to Sean in the7 day he found Leila missing and he boarded the plane with a gun. That's if he's te one who put it there. Also who were the people Sean was watching run through the terminal and were after him?

SG_Tess said...

Here's a link on the NBC site to the Twitter Q@A Nick Wauters and Steve Stark had after the show.

Q @ A

SG_Tess said...

lol how about Q & A.

maven said...

I agree, Tess...how did Sean know to get on that plane? What happened to him between the time Leila went missing and he got on that plane will hopefully be filled in.

I appreciate you summing up what we do know about the detainees, ObFuSc8. Are the Research Labs there for them to do research or for us to research them? If they are humans who had contact with aliens, wouldn't that be another show? Remember The 4400? Not quite 97, but still....


Six years ago today a plane crashed on an island and changed the survivors lives and those who watched them. We miss you LOST!!

MadAriad said...

So I'm really busy these days but I will be watching the show and lurking/posting when I can.... That ending left me with my mouth hanging open - I did not expect that!
I think the drunk couple is involved for sure. And I think Layla's dad knew something ahead of time.
Aliens, anyone?
Happy Lost day, by the way! Live together Die alone!

Zort70 said...

I see what you means about the tweets Tess, there is one that is definitely something I would call a mild spoiler.

SG_Tess said...

Morning All
There's a new post at the Truth Seeker blog.

maven said...

Thanks for the heads up, Tess! Not sure how much the Trustseeker is contributing yet. Seems to just look at things from a different perspective.

SG_Tess said...

Yeah not too much going on there yet. Hopefully it will pick up with bigger info.

maven said...

Can we still congratulate comment #108? Yea for Tess!!

SG_Tess said...

lol I was #108!?

maven said...

FYI: There's a lot of interviews, reviews and blogs saying we'll be getting a lot of answers in Epi 2...if you don't want to know what you'll find out stay away from them! They're not really spoilers, but they do spoil the fun of not knowing!! :)

Zort70 said...

It's going to be harder to say yea I got comment 5314 !

Zort70 said...

Wo hoo, Jason Ritter is now following the Event Community Twitter feed.

SG_Tess said...

There are pictures from Sean's camera on the Truth Seeker blog.

And woo hoo for Jason Ritter!!

maven said...

I was looking at the pics, Tess. #14 was the only one that that stood out for me. It's an off-angle picture of the water with a blurry "dot" on the water.

LostIt said...

Yeah, #14 wa odd. And #8 was a bit difficult to make out what it is.

LotteryTicket said...

15 total images (assuming posted in order from Sean's digital underwater camera?)
#1 daytime: Leila on beach hold phone (so she has photos too!)
#2 sunset
#3 daytime same beach
#4 daytime beach, what makes that kind of pattern in sand?
#5 Vicky and Sean snorkel? scuba? trip
#6 fish -underwater camera?
#7 fish - underwater shot
#8 underwater shot blurred, man and reflections
#9 same fish as 6 and 7 underwater
#10 - two swimmers, male, grey and red fins
#11 - ? Sean, blue trunks, thumbs up, with fish, blue snorkeling mask
#12, #13 - Sean (black mask) and Vicky (purple top) on boat,
#14 shot of water, black spot or oil
#15 daytime shot of beach

Reading emails recovered: Ky "seeyou in this life or he next" - thought of Nadia I suppose some of these would be possible future characters? Tony/Emily, Maggie/Jess, Steve/Kylie, Frank/Jake, the unidentified passenger next to Sean, air marshall, stewardess, and person who took video

The Event Wiki has Samantha Buchanan as being adopted? I read those scenes as grandchild, Leila as mom. hmmmmmm

SG_Tess said...

Nice rundown of the pictures Lotto. Numbers 8 and 14 are to blurry to tell what they are. I wonder if their important or not.
I've seen alot of people thinking Leila and Samantha were mother and daughter. I thought they sisters all along.

Not to say their wrong because I don't know how or where they get their information and they're probably are right but the official NBC wiki doesn't have any info on Samantha being adopted. Maybe ThetvEvent blog has an inside source or are smarter than me in searching for things.
More likely the latter. :)

It does make it interesting though since I think the Buchanan's are "Inostrankans". The conversation between
Simon and Sophia let us know she has people outside the facility and they're having doubts about something.

I think they're all kidnapped scientist forced to do experiments by the CIA. :)

K said...

Zort70 said...

Does anyone think the plane went to the past and all the people on it ended up at Mt Inostranka ?

---

That was my first thought. But then, if that's all they were, how would they know about an event that happened after they appear to have 'left the building'?

I really didn't mean to watch this. . .but I rather like Blair Underwood and maven said it was really good. . .sooooo,. . .thanks maven.

It really was good!

Just Thinking said...

It looks like there were three other guys Sean took pictures of while snorkeling. The two with red and gray fins, and the one in picture 11. I don't think that's Sean in 11 because his mask is blue and Sean's has red on it.

But since snorkeling was not Sean's idea, I don't know that it means anything-it doesn't seem like he had a meeting planned.

Just Thinking said...

Hmm- looking at the screencaps on the Event site it seems that Sean has blue fins, not gray or red, so yes, three other guys.

Just Thinking said...

And just one other thought. The picture 11 guy seems to be a friend- giving the thumbs up- and the other 2 seem to be running away so as not to have their pictures taken.

JT, I don't think Sean had planned to meet up with anybody either, but maybe Sean inadvertently captured a picture of something he wasn't supposed to know about?

Also, I think vicki was repsonsible for Leila not feeling well. I think she put soimething in Leila's drink and the snorkel trip was just to get Sean away from the cabin so they (whoever "they" is) could do whatever it is that happened to Leila.

I agree Lostit about Leila.

I wonder what they are trying to tell us, though, with the effort of putting up the snorkeling pictures and dressing people in the different colors? Seems they want us to know something more than just the trip with Vicki happened.

Is everyone ready for the second episode ?

Hopefully there is a little mystery left after all the promises to answer a lot of questions.

I am, I will be trying to force my self to stay up late enough to watch it tonight. If not, it will be first thing in the morning. So far I'm loving it !

Just Thinking said...

Yes- I'm in-though guess we will be scattered as to timing of seeing episodes.

I hope they tell us what those tracks on the beach in picture # 5 are. Soldiers marching? Some machine going back and forth?

I've been wondering if there is any significance in the differences of the evacuatiion of the President? The first one when he's being evacuated it's pretty much calm. The second time it's the same scene but the wind is blowing the ground is shaking and you have the high pitched sound. The President even gets wet from the fountain.

Or maybe it's just editing.

Zort70 said...

Tess, are you thinking that there multiple iterations of events ?

SG_Tess said...

I read we're suppose to find out where the plane went and who the "Inostrankans" are tonight. But we still have 13 months of back story to fill in after the President found out about them.
Plus the decades worth of story of why the facility was built and why they came to be there and what they've been doing.

Yeah it kind of seems like it. At least in that scene. The President pauses like something isn't quite right in both scenes.

Maybe one time they are saved and in another they're not. Or it could just simply be editing. Something just seems off to me. IDK

Ready for Episode 2!

@K: Nice to see I have some "power" to recommend watching this show! Hope it all pans out!

I think that we can all agree that Vicki and her "boyfriend" were in on the plan...getting Sean away from Leila for the kidnapping to happen.

Thanks, LT, for the synopsis of the pictures. #4 is strange in that it's not a pattern made by people hanging out on a beach.

We've learned from LOST that more answers lead to more questions! And I see Tess is already asking them! :)

SG_Tess said...

You know me I'm always full of questions but rarely any answers. Sometimes my questions lead others to answers. So it all works out in the end. :)

I noticed that pic wasn't on the site. Instead there's a pic of male swimmer in a similar pose. Which may or may not be Sean. The site say the pictures were found on a camera he left on he ship. Wouldn't the camera be in his backpack? He wasn't in the room alone. Also his ring should be in the safe.

Hey all. Looking forward to episode 2 although it will be tomorrow night for me :-(

Enjoy!

NBC has put up a interactive time line. Will probably be very helpful as things get more complicated.
