Alex/Adam I’m still your cuddle toy. – Alex/Adam Sammie immediately reads that Alex/Adam's profile pic looks like it's straight out of an ad, or a commercial. You have two Adams, with the addition of Bill – so, there's definitely a fake, or a catfish. Real Adam vs. Catfish Adam. People are on to Alex.

The switch from the '90s to the 2000s was like the switch from the '70s to the '80s. Science to emotion. 1984. That's the tonal shift that goes through all of Lost - science to faith and spirituality. From the science of the Vietnam War, back to ancient Egypt, Sumer and Mesopotamia. In 1984, the … Continue reading LOST. Season 1. The Re-watch!
