"Not in Portland"

"Not in Portland" is now official! (I wasn't sure where to post that)

ABC released promotional photos of "Not in Portland", with a confirmation to the episode's title. [1] (click on "View Full Caption"). Obi-DanKenobi 07:02, 12 January 2007 (PST)

In the return episode, "Not in Portland," Jack is in command as the fate of Ben's life literally rests in his hands. Meanwhile, Kate and Sawyer find an ally in one of "The Others," and Juliet makes a shocking decision that could endanger her standing with her people.

Not in Portland has been confirmed for a couple days now...are we waiting for the guest list or something? Anyway, glad that's all been settled about the title! ShadowUltra 08:45, 14 January 2007 (PST)

PLease don't remove clue /easter egg column

Someone (captaininsano?) has removed the column for easter eggs, clues, etc. This was a large part of my reason for setting up this page. Without it, this page is the same content as existing pages. This page is meant to be a reference to find episodes based on these items.

I see that you wanted to switch to wiki formating rather than HTML. Fair enough -- but please don't remove content. --Tigerlily 11:33, 9 July 2006 (PDT)

Fine it is very simple to do--CaptainInsano

Thank you!!

Could you also please put back the word "plot" after "flashback" in header... and the return the removed content. There are already MANY page that say who the Flashback is about. The point here was to be able to distinquist one Jack flashback from another... now that their are so many episodes. --Tigerlily 11:44, 9 July 2006 (PDT)

  • I'm not understanding what you are meaning. Plot is after flashback.--CaptainInsano
  • Uh never mind you want it to be "flashback plot"--CaptainInsano

So what is the point of the Easter Egg column? --Señor Eko 09:15, 4 August 2006 (PDT)

Merge with Episode Guide

  • Merge I don't think this article has any new information. We already have an episode guide; if anyone feels that more information should be added, add it there! This article is redundant. --Phmall 20:53, 21 July 2006 (PDT)

    • ^ I agree. Delete if not worked on, otherwise merge. --SilvaStorm
  • Keep: While this information is redundant, it has been updated to the end of season 2. This could be revisted after the start of season 3 if nobody is keeping it updated.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 08:21, 18 August 2006 (PDT)
  • Keep Useful page. Well thought. It does not duplicate other pages. The episode guides are more fleshed out and scattered on the different seasons pages. It's useful to have the whole list on one page and see the whole picture at a glance, with short a few words in telegraphic style just to mention the main plot line, the main flashback line and the main related elements. Too bad that the original contributor got discouraged, but other contributors have continued the work and with the addition of season 3 and the reinsertion of the deleted elements in the last column, it serves as a practical portal that links to the main elements associated with the episode. Besides, I don't see how an article like this can be merged with a disambiguation page, as per the nomination. Well, it can, but a merge would mean that it is the disambiguation page, less complete, that disappears and the contents of this article, more complete, that practically would become the merged page. Cheers 08:06, 26 August 2006 (PDT)
  • Merge -- Keep this page, and entirely delete the s1 and s2 and s3 episode guide pages. I don't know why we had an episode list separated into multiple articles. This one is much nicer. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk 01:42, 12 September 2006 (PDT)

Redirect Portal:Episode Guide to here

Please vote whether you would like to redirect Portal:Episode Guide to this article.

  • Yes: It should be redirected. Right now, it takes a minimum of 3 clicks just to get to a specific episode page (for example, "Everybody Hates Hugo") from the front page.--Dagg 11:31, 16 December 2006 (PST)
  • Yes: --Marik7772003 11:49, 16 December 2006 (PST)
  • No, but: put this page on the main page instead. The portal does a nice job of going into more detail, and I think we should keep it; however, this page is more useful for quick navigation. If they really want the portal, they can click the All Portals link that's already there.-BearDog 10:46, 21 December 2006 (PST)
  • I guess this page has survived merge nominations before (see above). My question is the same as it always has been for many pages; what the heck is the difference between a portal and a list page? I think I asked this once when I first came on the site, and was told that a portal is "prettier"--I think Portal:Locations is a good example. But all the same, I think when there is a good portal, there shouldn't be a need for a list page which practically duplicates the same thing. On top of that, many of these pages also have category pages. Why create so much redundency, when it makes more work for us to keep all 3 page types updates congruently? --PandoraX 12:15, 21 December 2006 (PST)
    • If someone could just add {{Season3nav}}{{Season2nav}}{{Season1nav}} to the portal page, it would probably save about 94,300 clicks per year :). I just want to save us some clicks here :). I would add those links, etc, but the page is protected. --Dagg 15:27, 21 December 2006 (PST)
  • I agree, Dagg, but I think let's figure out if we want to do this merge first yet, because if we do merge this info into that page, it won't be necessary to have the nav bars on top at all. It seems pretty silly to me to have all this redundent info on both pages, so I am voting yes to the merge now. --PandoraX 09:03, 25 December 2006 (PST)

Decision Merged by consensus. Looks much better now... the other page wasn't much of a portal. --PandoraX 08:06, 1 January 2007 (PST)


Should we have all this rumor info on the episode page? We don't allow it on the other pages until we get confirmed sources... --PandoraX 05:57, 2 January 2007 (PST)

  • I agree. I was the one who changed it - before, it stated all of the rumoured information as factual, so I changed it to "Rumoured to be" instead. But yes, it should be removed. --   Lost Soul   talk  contribs  06:03, 2 January 2007 (PST)

Color scheme change proposal

The cover of the DVD for Season 3 was unveiled today along with those of several other ABC shows. It will be green. I propose changing the the color scheme of the Season 3 grid to green shades to match the DVD boxes, just like the Seasons 1 and 2 grid do, but keep the current red theme for the seson 4 grid. Anyone agree/disagree?--Jeff 14:49, 23 May 2007 (PDT)

I agree. I am the user who initially added the colors last year. The idea was indeed to match the season's boxes, as those colors become associated to the seasons and help identify them. At the time, the future color for season 3 was unknown and I chose the red temporarily because it was different from the others, until the color for season three became known. Now that we know what that color is, please go ahead and change it. That was the plan. As a bonus, you get to choose the temporary color for season 4. :) -- Cheers (talk) 21:37, 23 May 2007 (PDT)
Made the change. For whover is curious, the codes for the red box, if you wish for when season 4 begins, were bgcolor=#E26262 and background-color:#FBE9E9. --Jeff 16:39, 24 May 2007 (PDT)

Season 4 box change?

I have a suggestion, but just to get others opinons what do you think about this: For the boxes for Season 4, 5 and 6, the Flashback plot portion read "Flashback/Flashforward plot"? I don't see the need to alter Season three's box since there was onyl one flash forward and there is a foot note. Here's an example of what I was thinking:

# Episode Days
Flashforward plot
Island plot Related items/people
1 "The Beginning of the End" 93 Jack (plot).
Plot here. Rescue, the Others, Freighter
2 "Confirmed Dead" 95 Kate (plot).
Plot here. Rescue, the Others, Freighter

Thoughts? --Jeff 15:16, 12 June 2007 (PDT)

Maybe. But my suspicion is that "flash-forwards" will really be no different from "flashbacks": in "Through the Looking Glass, Part 1", it seems to me that the actual "flashbacks" are Jack's time on the island, whereas the "flash-forwards" are meant to be the present day. This would mean that the show's basic mechanisms haven't changed, just the relative time periods treated as the "present" and the "past". However, it strikes me that there are already several episodes that complicate or contradict the "flashback" system we're using: "The Other 48 Days", for example, really consists entirely of a single extended "flashback", yet it's treated as being two different things in the way we're handling it. My recommendation is that we either replace "Flashback plot" with "Off-Island plot" (to mirror the fact that we have "Island plot" for the main story, even though numerous flashbacks take place on the Island), or replace "Island plot" with "Main plot" or "Present time". Maybe "Side-plots" and "Main plots"? Another possibility is to consider simply merging the two into a single box and distinguish flashbacks from non-flashbacks within the text itself, though I don't currently see that as necessary.
By the way, why do we have a panel for "Related items/people"? Seems very strange to interject random names in an "add-on" box rather than simply noting their significance in the plot description. -Silence 23:34, 15 July 2007 (PDT)

Proposed revamp from scratch

The current episodes page is in really, really terrible shape. I propose that we rewrite it, making it as to-the-point and consistent as possible, and create a second page for a somewhat more expanded summary of each episode, with images included. If anyone agrees, do you think we should make the shorter list the main list, or the longer one? Maybe we should make the more pretty, in-depth one the "main" one (replacing Portal:Episodes), and provide a link to the "shorter" one at the top for people who want a more concise listing? -Silence 00:10, 16 July 2007 (PDT)

  • No, for the expanded list I was thinking something more like this:
# Image Title Days Flashback Airdate
01 Opening "Pilot, Part 1" 1-2 Jack remembers the crash of Oceanic Flight 815. 09/22/04
Survivors of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815 attend to the injured on the beach of a mysterious island. Jack, Kate and Charlie hike to the cockpit to find a transceiver, and are attacked by "the Monster".
02 1x02 Sawyer Close Up "Pilot, Part 2" 2-3 Kate and Charlie remember the crash of Oceanic Flight 815. 09/29/04
Sayid and Kate lead a group to higher ground and hear a mysterious distress signal. Jack and Hurley try to aid an injured man.
03 1X03 - KateIsland "Tabula Rasa" 3-5 Kate is apprehended in Australia. 10/06/04
Jack tries to save the Marshal, and Kate comes to terms with his death. Sawyer attempts to euthanize him.

-Silence 01:52, 16 July 2007 (PDT)

  • I dont mind it. Although I reckon the flashback listing should be placed in its own box on the side, near the airdate, and not lined up in a row with the title, days etc or have a line separating the summary and title, days etc. row.
  • Should the image display have an image of the flashback character of the episodes, or just random.
  • I decided to remove the airdate to give the Flashback more room and make the whole thing easier to parse at a glance. As for the images, they don't necessarily need to have the flashback character; they should just be whatever image best represents the episode in question, both by being easily recognizable and distinctive at a small size, and by encapsulating or providing a good sample of the contents of the episode in question. In most cases, these two goals are best accomplished with an image with the featured character, but in some cases I've picked other images: for episode 2 there weren't any clear "featured" characters, so I went with Shannon, who otherwise lacked an image in the first season and who is more important in this episode than any other; for episodes 5 and 16 I featured Christian Shephard and Ethan Rom rather than Jack, because Jack already had two other first-season images and because, frankly, they were more compelling pictures. I featured Kate's hand rather than her face for 12, because it looked better at a small size; and I picked Shannon and Boone rather than Sayid for 21 because they're really the focus of the episode. For 2x03, I showed the more interesting Swan logo rather than yet another picture of Locke; for "Dave" I so far have a picture of Libby, though I'm considering switching to one of Dave and/or Hurley if I find a really good one; for Rose and Bernard's episode I currently have a picture of Ben, just because it's such an amazing and compelling image even at that size; and for "?" I have the question mark timer rather than another Eko. All of those are open to revision, but I tried to find images on each episode's article that were both relevant and eye-catching at a small size. -Silence 10:03, 16 July 2007 (PDT)
  • Good ideas. I'd keep the Libby image, since well that would mean she never got any shots at all. But its looking good. I agree, removing airdates gives flashbacks more room, and it looks easier to read. For Tabula Rasa, I really loved the Kate/Jack scene in the rain, it was a powerful moment for the episode. So a image for that would be cool. But whatever happens is fine. I like the episode guide page now. Suggestions for season 3: For Glass Ballerina, I always found the Sun killing Colleen scene to be a highlight. A image of that would be cool. Juliet shooting Pickett should be the image for Not In Portland.
  • Yeah, the fact that she's in no other images was the main reason I used here there, though possible reasons not to use her there are spoiler concerns (of course, the text has even more spoilers; that's part of the point) and the fact that she'll doubtless appear in a later flashback episode in the next season or two (my guess is that her psychological breakdown will be explained in either Juliet or Richard Alpert's flashback, since it's been confirmed that she won't appear in any Losty flashbacks or get her own post-mortem one). But I suppose there's no reason not to use her pic at the very least until that happens.
  • As for s3, we shouldn't overuse shooting scenes, even if they are very dramatic. :) I already used gun-totin' scenes for "Homecoming" and "The Hunting Party", and avoided using nice-looking images of Sawyer and Ana-Lucia holding guns precisely because I didn't want to overuse any one type of action pose for this page. The more diverse scenes we represent, the better they'll hang together all on the same page and illustrate the show's diversity. I'd also say that although the scene was a highlight (maybe not as much as Jae Lee's death or him sleeping with Sun, though), the image of it is a little too dark and low-contrast to be very good at a small size. None of the images on The Glass Ballerina would be spectacular at a small size, in fact; right now I'm leaning on using the image of the ballerina. As for Juliet shooting Pickett, do we actually have any images of that? -Silence 03:55, 17 July 2007 (PDT)
  • Good point about spoilers, I suppose another image could be used. I understand with the shooting pics. I understand about the Sun shot, perhaps use a Sayid/Sun scene instead. I'd hate to see the otherville story in the first 7 eps be in every image. The image of the ballerina is a good choice too. I dont know if theres a pic of Juliet shooting Pickett, but if we dont use that, Juliet giving orders at the start of episode is a good shot too.
  • I see theres a colour bar on the season 1 guide, for a range of colours. Is that meant to be like that, or are you just experiementing the colours to see which one to use. I wonder what it would look like if the colour changes, like going blue, light blue, blue, light blue etc. The colours used for episode 14-18 look the best, I'd say.
  • Please do not worry about spoilers. Anyone who has ventured this far into the wiki should have already seen all the episodes of Lost and if they haven't they have been warned already. As for the new colour scheme. Please do not just try things like that on the main page. Use the talk page or even better (prefer this one) create a sandbox in your userspace and test there where visitors will not see the ongoing work. As for colour, i would recommend #80B4B4 for the first season. In order to make things identifiable to Lost fans we (along with many other sites) use the colours of the dvd colours for each respective season's dvds to represent material from that season. This doesn't cause too much confusion controversy and is an added bonus for the lost fans who know this colours well. slate grey/blue for season 1, orange for 2, and light green for 3. Thanks -Mr.Leaf 13:12, 18 July 2007 (PDT)
  • I agree, I think usind the dvd colours for each season is a great idea.

  • I don't know what either of you are talking about. There is no test on this page. Using a color gradient is much more visually appealing than using just one flat color, and it makes it a lot easier to differentiate episodes, as well as drawing the eye in. Why would I have posted a color test on an article? And why would I need to have spent soooo many hours, inputting those different colors into each little box and testing and retesting and reretesting how they all look next to each other, if I was only planning to use one of those colors in the "final"? I probably used "preview" about fifty times before I saved it to let others comment on it, so I don't see what purpose would have been served by doing it in Userspace instead. I did deliberately use blue gradients in the first season, and I was planning to use a red-to-orange one in s2, and a yellow-to-green one in s3; more of our readers will appreciate a dynamic, "pretty" page than will care about an injoke, though the proposed color scheme would accomplish both to varying degrees. What about if I made the gradient's variation a bit less intense; say, rather than dipping into violets and so on later in the season, I have the gradient reverse itself halfway through the season and end up returning to the original color by the end? That'd have the same basic effect visually, but would allow us to more clearly and strongly emphasize a single color for each season, rather than a pure continuum. -Silence 21:39, 18 July 2007 (PDT)
  • I've altered the gradient so it is only behind the episode name, and the picture. The original which included the episode name and the amount of days on the island, was horrible on the eyes. This is why people like to do sandboxing first, so they can play around and gather opinion before making sweeping changes. Thats the culture here, whether you like that or not. You are doing a lot of things really well around here, but carte blanche changes are not how things are done around here. We normally enter dialogue about changes, and demo them first. -- Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  03:08, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • The article looked somewhat horrible before any recent changes were made, so there wasn't any "ideal version" to leave it as while waiting for feedback—and most of the feedback I'd gotten was positive, so there wasn't any reason to revert the whole thing yet, especially since that would make it much more difficult to get much-needed further feedback. The best way to get efficient progress and discussion made on articles is to announce a change on a Talk page, make it, and wait for responses, then make further changes based on the feedback received. I understand the value of userspace for sandbox experiments (though none of the changes I made were intended to be purely provisional or experimental, so I don't see the relevance here; they were genuine good-faith improvements, even if some of them needed, and still need, further fiddling with), but sometimes that can result in nothing getting done at all in the end, and it makes it a lot more difficult and time-consuming to get responses from other editors on what changes need to be made. Since any bad edit can always be reverted, and since we're a relatively small community, it makes perfect sense to make bold changes when necessary, then to step back and get others involved. That's usually very difficult to do on userspace.
  • But that isn't the way things are done around here, whatever your opinion on what is best, this way has developed and we're happy with sandboxing and talk pages to achieve the desired effect. I like what you've done but please, don't go carte blanche editing major pages without some discussion about it first. I shouldn't have to tell you this. As a wiki editor you'll also know that in a perfect situation you should also avoid overcomplicating pages with un needed tables.  Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  04:35, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • Alright, thanks for telling me. I wasn't aware that this site was so much more reliant on sandboxes than Wikipedia, and all other wikis I've been to, are; since it's so very easy to revert any unwanted changes, and since this site isn't particularly high-traffic and thus wouldn't suffer noticeably from working things out on articlespace, I'm used to the mantra of "be bold" being treated as common sense simply for the sake of expediency. But if this community is used to regularly commenting on userspace sandbox changes, I'll keep that in mind for future changes. I haven't heard any negative feedback from anyone else, however, for editing the articles directly; indeed, I've gotten a lot of positive feedback for the changes I've made in articlespace thus far, even when they've been very major and sudden, such as on Bloopers and continuity errors. But I'll keep your recommendations in mind.
  • As for tables, I'm not sure what you mean. Some articles benefit enormously from tables; others don't need tables at all. In general, tables are useful for helping better-organize and break up lengthy lists with more than one input field; they aren't as useful for short lists, and for text that should be in prose paragraphs. There's a time and a place for everything. But I don't see how that relates to this situation, since there was already a table on this article long before I made any edits here; it just wasn't quite as pretty. :) -Silence 05:21, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • By the way, the reason the episode name and "days" were a part of the gradient was because I was trying to respond to the criticism that the "flashback" and synopsis boxes didn't seem unified enough, being on separate lines and indents. Using one coloring scheme for the flashbacks and "present" events, and another color scheme for the other rest of the episode info, seemed the best way to kill two birds with one stone. But if you think it looks better this way, and don't see a need to further delineate the title and days boxes from the flashback and synopsis ones, then that's fine by me. Though I did think some of the color combinations with the blue/purple linked episode title with the gradients looked rather nice. :) Others should weigh in too on which version they prefer, or if they have another idea altogether. Meanwhile, I think I'll start work on season 3, since we seem to have come to a working compromise on most of the layout issues for now. -Silence 03:58, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • Actually, looking back and comparing the two versions, I think they looked quite nice. I worry that the current version looks a bit bland, less dynamic, because the lines are so uniform in coloration. But since your negative reaction ("horrid") is much stronger than my positive reaction ("pretty nice"), we can stick with your version while we wait to hear more opinions on it. -Silence 05:21, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • Ok, to make a more accurate critique, the problem was, the earlier version didn't flow down or across the page properly, and it does so much more now. You ended up with what looked like half columns of various colours, which tripped the site up somewhat. The colours and designs we try and use really are simple and clear so people can read them. Please try and remember those who are colour blind or may have difficulty reading coloured backgrounds  Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  08:02, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • In my opinion this new colouring scheme looks bad and doesn't fit the page. I think we would just be better off with set colours for each season as it looks better. And you comment, "since this site isn't particularly high-traffic and thus wouldn't suffer noticeably from working things out on articlespace". And what do you consider high traffic? -Mr.Leaf 15:09, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • What about this coloring scheme looks bad to you? I think it looks very nice; much more vibrant and accessible. And we are using set colors for all the information about each episode; we just have a tiny bit of gradient off to the side, to help frame the images and episode number on the left. It seems like a very good compromise to me, between 100% flat colors and 100% gradient. I'd consider this site "high-traffic" when it's during a Lost season, but right now, as you yourself noted, the vast majority of edits are done by a relatively small set of dedicated users. As compared to, say, Wikipedia, prominent articles get very few hits, and briefly having an in-development article in articlespace is no great tragedy. -Silence 15:32, 19 July 2007 (PDT)
  • It's very nice and it looks great. EXCALIBUR

With that in mind, was removing the "Related items/people" column from season 3 the best way to standardize the page? Wouldn't it be better to generate that information to include in seasons 1 and 2? I suspect that more information relating to an episode for the portal page is better than less. (See page history)--TechNic|talk|conts 09:55, 23 October 2007 (PDT)

seeing as some else made a new template for the other two seasons the third should be the same format as those, including layout, columns, and also images are needed for season three episodes--Connor401 13:00, 23 October 2007 (PDT)
Some one with advanced formatting knowledge and time to reformat the coloring and layout of the templates needs to do this for season 3 so that it is like the others--Connor401 13:00, 23 October 2007 (PDT)

Yes, that's a good point that season 3 should be reformatted to match 1 and 2. My feeling is that the information now deleted would have been better left up until that redesign came. That way the editor could include as much appropriate information about the episodes as they saw fit. Although I accept that the related items/people column wasn't great, it did contain some useful notes that could usefully be integrated into the main description paragraphs.--TechNic|talk|conts 19:50, 23 October 2007 (PDT)


someone needs to put images on the episodes for season 3 like the other seasons--Connor401 07:28, 13 October 2007 (PDT)


Last year we used to put the name of the flashback character in that portion of the grid on this page once the episode name was confirmed, even though flashbacks (or now flash forwards I suppose) are never confirmed by ABC or TPTB in advance, because, the flashbacks are usually leaked but other sources close to the show -- most often the actors themselves. I'd like to continue that policy this season as well if thats OK. Knowing WHOSE episode is coming up after all doesn't spoil the CONTENT of the episode. For instance, it's been widely talked about by the actors, especially Jorge Garcia, who's episode episode 4 is. Thoughts? --Jeff 10:15, 2 February 2008 (PST)

strange link under the season 4 heading "You can watch Season 4 online at Watch Lost Online." with a link to '' imo its spam, so i'm deleting it Fredcar 09:33, 20 February 2008 (PST)

Thanks for catching it. -- Graft   talk   contributions  14:01, 20 February 2008 (PST)

Days do not match Timeline

I'm not sure if I am understanding the Days information on this page, but I have assumed that they are supposed to reflect the days passed on the island in each episode. However, I have noticed that the first several episodes in season 1 do not match the Timeline page. Either the days need to be kept in sync with the Timeline, or they should be removed. I like them here, BTW.


Now that Season 3 is done, can someone fix the gradient so it fades the saem way seasons 1 and 2 do? --Jeff 13:38, 21 March 2008 (PDT)

Format for episode pages?

Is there an episode template or a style guide showing a standard format for layout of sections on episode pages? Specifically, should "Episode references" be a subheading under "Trivia" or a section heading of its own? Robert K S (talk) 19:22, 24 March 2008 (PDT)

Season 4 DVD Box

Seems the DVD Box of season 4 is blue, I noticed all other seasons' colors are similar to the color of the DVD Box, so I believe season 4 color should be blue instate of Seba5618 09:03, 30 April 2008 (PDT)

  • Ha, I was coming here for the same reason. Someone take note of the red color for the temp color for the season 5 box. I'd change the S4 box color but I don't know the right color # for that shade of blue. --Jeff 21:55, 23 May 2008 (PDT)

Missing Pieces

How about adding the webisodes to the list from Lost: Missing Pieces since they are mini episodes and a lot of new or casual viewers might not know of them not to mention in the interests of completion --Anfield Fox 09:35, 11 December 2008 (PST)

That might be a good idea. For now, I've made a section for them which links to the main article. -- Graft   talk   contributions  01:37, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Episode Count Fixed

With the revelation that 5x14 is going to be the 100th episode (according to the ABC press release), each of the two-hour finales needs to be split into two episodes. I fixed the Season Four finale (calling it episode "13, 14"), but I don't know how to fix the others. S1's finale should be "24, 25" -- S2's finale should be "23, 24" -- and S3's finale should be "22, 23". —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Marc604 (talkcontribs) .

  • Glad that issue is fixed, for a long time everyone was wondering how its counted, Lost is counted in hours, not episodes, all shows count 2-hour episodes as two episodes not one. I dont think we need to actually divide the season final pages into part 1 and 2, just like it has already been done. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lostbuffy23 (talkcontribs) .

Total Episode count bar

Since its confirmed that episode 14 of season 5 is the 100th episode, I think the episode guide page should note this, by placing a bar on the side for the total episode count now, as-well as season episode number. Anyone agree? Lostbuffy23 14:43, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I agree 100%. I'd do it myself, but I don't know how! Marc604 01:57, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Anyone is able to make the total episode count? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Roland2111 (talkcontribs) .

Off-Island Plot?

In the season 4 episode list, in the top there stands "Off-Island Plot", but "The Other Woman" is not "Off-Island". I think there should stand "flashes" like in Template:season4nav: I don't want to just edit it so: What do you think? -  Rasmus Ni  Talk  Contributions  17:21, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Recap #6x00

Can someone with more know-how than I add the clip show info before the season six premiere slot? Marc604 08:21, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

There you go. -- Graft   talk   contributions  08:39, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

Italicized Titles? What?

Some jughead has italicized the titles for many of the S6 episodes. And I can't figure out how to change them back. A simple "edit" won't do. Someone, please fix this. Marc604 06:00, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
