LOST Spoilers - DarkUFO

Here are some spoilers from EW.1. The first line in the episode is ''Hello,'' and it is uttered by one of the most menacing and mysterious characters in the Lost verse.
2. If you want to get a head start on the homework you'll be doing after watching the episode, investigate the following: Edmund Burke, A Clockwork Orange, and A Brief History of Time.
3. For the second straight episode, there is a fleeting yet conspicuous reference to the name ''Jacob.'' This time, the context is decidedly religious.
4. According to recent statements by the producers, and per the timeline that's been suggested in the show, the events that are currently transpiring in Lost are taking place in late November 2004, possibly very early December 2004. At the end of ''Not In Portland,'' a character reveals the exact amount of time that he/she has been on the island. When you do the math, you will get an Estimated Date that comes suspiciously close to the exact date of an infamous, real-world catastrophe. Coincidence?

Here are my guesses
1) Ethan
2) Here are some links.Edmund Burke, A Clockwork Orange, and A Brief History of Time.
3) Jacob in the bible was Bens father
4) Confirmation of the Tsunami? Here are links to disasters in Nov 04 and Dec 04

UPDATE: Looks like the Tsunami idea is a no-go after looking at the following follow on the the EW Site.
A reader named ''pablopk'' reminds us of the following:

Here's one upon which to chew. The events of the island took place in the fall of 2004. The Indian Ocean tsunami occurred in the early winter of 2004. While we have long presumed that the castaways are on one of the many small islands that pepper the Pacific Ocean, is it possible that they are more off-course than we suspect? Could that historical event recur within this fictive context?

Dear pablopk: This seems to be the fashionable speculation of the moment. Recently, the producers have said that something BIG is going to happen this year that will help further establish a historical or perhaps geographical context for Lost. The tsunami of 2004 seems to be a likely candidate, although I can tell you that that catastrophe isn't the ''infamous, real-world catastrophe'' I spoke of in my ''Not In Portland'' teases. But here's a question to debate. Lost certainly explores a great many deep, meaningful themes — but does it have enough weight to use something as tragic as the tsunami as a plot point? Or would doing so actually underscore and enhance the relevancy of the show?

We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
