An early start for this discussion post tonight as I need to catch up on some sleep !

SG_Tess said...

Everyone involved with the show has been tweeting something shocking is going to happen tonight. I hope it lives up to the hype.

LotteryTicket said...

Thank Zort! You must be exhausted! We need you over at unforums as well! Get some rest. Will look for comments tomorrow.

Tess, yes "Face Off" brings to mind the movie by same name. Something tells me that the alien B O D Y S (hee hee) are maybe something else altogether.

But with this show, it's highly likely is just meaning standoff with government.

back in a couple of hours LT

Black Swan said...

Something shocking is gonna happen tonight?! I hope so!

SG_Tess said...

It's probably just what we've seen in the promo. :) Hi Black Swan

Black Swan said...

Has there been any talk about things they show in Dempsey's office at the NBC site?

Black Swan said...

I was thinking the same thing, SG. The thing I want to see is when Dempsey is finding more of the tablet-like artifacts in his dig in France.. wondering a lot about that.

Black Swan said...

'Tell me what you can use it for'.. ok, i get it now what we see in the promo

Black Swan said...

From now on, I'm not watching the promos. It takes all the suspense away.

SG_Tess said...

Yeah the promos are a litttle telling.
I'd like to know what Dempsey is digging for.

Black Swan said...

A little??!? LOL

"Whatever it is, he's spending a fortune to find it"


the dead sea scrolls? Is that guy saying amphora?

Oh,, Dempsey's mad that someone got into the chamber before him..
woah.. Dempsey has no mercy.

SG_Tess said...

Is the find from when the "aliens" were there before?

SG_Tess said...

Yes he said amphora.

Black Swan said...

I don't know, SG. Could be the find is from when they were here before. Dempsey seems to know more than the carbon-dating about how old those amphora are, doesn't he?

Simon is found out!

SG_Tess said...

I hope nothing happens to Simon he's my favorite character.

SG_Tess said...

I wonder if we know her superior?

SG_Tess said...

They're angels?

Black Swan said...

We're back to Lost, 'the others'..never to be trusted.

oh, cool.. the caves! Been waiting for this!

Guardian angels? Every civilization has had them. Not just a symbol according to Dempsey. 'They are very very real.' Oh, what's that triangle?? (on the wall and tattooed on Dempsey's arm). Hmmm, this is interesting.

Black Swan said...

I wonder if Dempsey's main work is to make things happen the way they are supposed to? If he's a guardian angel and he has the power to affect the future by manipulating the present? Maybe he's a good-guy saving our Earth?

Black Swan said...

I'm starting to worry about Thomas

SG_Tess said...

There was a triangle on the medicine bottle they were injecting the girls with too.

At least Thomas went out bravely and not the whimp the girl had turned him into.

Black Swan said...

That was actually pretty sad with Thomas and Sophia. Wonder where the portal takes them?

Black Swan said...

SG, that's interesting about the triangle also being on the med bottle.

Black Swan said...

I like Simon, too, SG. So you should be Simon'sGirl this time around, huh? LOL, still SG!

SG_Tess said...

lol I never thought of that.

Black Swan said...

:) (don't tell, but I'm still in love with Sawyer. ROFL!) I think I'll be always LOST! I liked that guy in Off the Map, too, but he's just not doing it for me personality-wise, LOL.

I think I'll research guardian angels.

SG_Tess said...

Maybe Dempsey is Sean's guardian angel, since he said their paths had crossed before. I think he helped Sean after he got off the cruise ship.

Black Swan said...

Yeah.. maybe, SG.

somebody over at http://www.theeventcast.net/ made a comment that it's not angels, it's Nephilim.. still looking into that.

Funny if this show could also turn into a science vs faith thing.

SG_Tess said...

Seems to be a popular suubject.

I listen to their podcast. They've talked about it maybe being angels or fallen angels back when Simon's lover asked if he was one and he said he was no angel.

Black Swan said...

It's a subject appropriate for modern times.

I just found their podcasts. Maybe I should start from the beginning, you think?

SG_Tess said...

I guess you can start any place. They're interesting and funny. Some of them have more content than others but I like them.

maven said...

Just finished watching....most of tonight's episode was pretty predictable until those buses blew up!

Dempsey continues to intrigue me...I want to know his story. He does seem to be the "Jacob" of this story...in charge of destinies? And something special is in those jars...written in the same Rune characters we've seen before.

Black Swan said...

Hi maven! I thought the last quarter of tonight's show was fantastic! I'm also very intrigued by Dempsey and I hope we get to find out more. This is from http://the-event.net/the-event-now-a-bubble-show

"NBC’s thriller series, The Event, has reached a significant milestone in its run. The show once hailed as “24 meets Lost” has had its ups and downs in the ratings since its premiere last September. NBC finally shelved the show for three months.

The Event returned earlier this month, minus the struggle in the ratings. There was no struggle. The ratings have been consistently slumping since The Event came back.

The conspiracy thriller had one big thing going for it, though: loyal fans. While the ratings would take a dive in the overnights, they would always jump back up when the DVR numbers came in about a week later. Many fans are recording the show. And, perhaps even more significantly, the majority of said fans fall into that coveted males 19-49 demographic.

What does all that add up to?

It means that The Event is now what they call a “bubble” show. In other words, the fate of the series could go either way: cancellation or renewal. A quick survey of reviews, blogs and internet posts shows a definite divided opinion on both the future and the merits of The Event.

Only time will tell."

Well well well, I've now watched the episode and it was very good !

Unfortunately Martinez seems to be a person that has no clue what to do in most situations !

I didn't see the buses being blown up, but it is an interesting twist, I wonder if we will see Thomas again later in another guise ? My guess would be at season end.

The guardian angel thing with Dempsey is also interesting this is obviously a story thread to be linked in with the aliens at some point, probably a kind of bigger picture thing.

Loads to look at and digest, and I think this is only one of a few episodes that I want to immediately go and watch again.

SG_Tess said...

Are we to assume Dempsey is a gaurdian angel because of the triangle tattoo? Or is he the gaurdian angel in the drawing?

SG_Tess said...

There's some more voicemails at Dempsey's desk nothing to exciting one is in French though so I have no idea what it says. Probably something about the dig. There's also a scroll in the safe with the rune writing on it.

Zort70 said...

Thanks Tess I'll take a look at those in a while. We may need our code breaking skils to decipher the rune writing.

I think that is what the show is implying about Dempsey, but whether he is a fallen guardien angel is another matter.

Zort70 said...

I've created a NEW POST for the Dempsey's office updates.

maven said...

I agree that they are implying that Dempsey is a guardian angel...possibly the big white one in that drawing because of the triangle tattoo. Is there a rune translator out there somewhere? LOL

Capcom said...

Great thoughts everyone! I've been lurking.

I like Simon too.

Maybe Dempsey is like an Observer. :o)

SG_Tess said...

Hi Capcom!
Nice to see/hear from you.

Capcom said...

Howdy, nice to see all you friends too. :-x
