The Reign of Ellen has great LOST reviews. Today she posted one word and received 17 comments! Comment #16 MUST be read! The anonymous poster did an incredible job. I’ll quote an exerpt which has SPOILERS from last night’s show:

[First she points out the name and city of the captive is an anagram (just like Ethan’s was):] HENRY GALE MINNESOTA = SEE AN OTHER MAN LYING

[then there is the connection to the balloon:] He’s so full of hot air.

[regarding the description of the balloon:] He was describing the dimensions of Steve Fossett’s balloon, Spirit of Freedom, which Fossett used to make his round-the-world solo flight, starting and ending in Australia.

Spirit of Freedom was sponsored by Bud Light. Budweiser’s mascot is
… a frog.

[Henry’s dead wife went to the U. of Minnesota:] The U. of Minnesota is in Minneapolis, a TWIN city. The school’s teams are called the Golden Gophers. Henry is a go-fer for The Others.

Let me throw in a couple of other tidbits. Henry Gale was Dorothy’s Uncle in The Wizard of Oz. The Wizard escaped in a hot air ballon. Oz is the nickname for Australia.

Credit should go to margalit who originally posted it as a comment on The Reign of Ellen.

I honestly would have never come up with that. It’s so good! In hindsight, there were soo many allusions to lying.
