Okay, wow! For those of you who thought last week's episode was slow, this week more than made up for it! Possibly my favorite episode of the season so far!
And so many great moments! So many great reveals! Even some answered questions!!!
How cute is Ji Yeon? We have all these Lostie babies now, it's just killing me. Sun seemed just a bit too eager to go find Jin, though. Did she already forget about her precious little one? And how funny was Ben getting all fed up with Jack and Sun? It would be nice if he would explain things instead of speaking in abstractions for once, though, huh? Is he really that surprised they all want to off him?
Jin didn't seem too freaked out about Rousseau..just sort of taking the time travel in stride. And Smokey came back, totally freaking me out. It appears that Smokey can sever limbs. And really does look like a monster. What really happened to Rousseau's crew? Possession? They survived going down in the hole...remember when Locke wanted to go? Jin saved Rousseau from their fate, or did he? Did he create her fate of loneliness on the island for so many years? And of course, we finally saw the temple and learned that Smokey guards it. You know, when Nadine first disappeared, I thought she had been kidnapped by the Others. ;) How cute was Sawyer's and Jin's reunion, though? ;)
The flashes started to come really quickly and even Sawyer was suffering from a nose bleed. Poor Charlotte....at least she gave us a major freaky reveal! She was a Dharma kid, and lied to her whole life about the island. And she met Daniel in that past life! And he tried to change her fate. Hmmmm...
Well, of course, we need to chat about one Mr. John Locke. We learned that Jacob (via Christian Shepherd) told us that Locke needed to move the island...and he didn't. He disobeyed. And somehow, that threw them all into some sort of strange flashing through time. The wheel of time came unhinged and sent them spinning through the time zones. But when Locke moved...well did he fix them in time? Like, uh, maybe back in the Dharma days? (going on the season opener and Charlotte's revelation) Why does everyone need to go back? This still doesn't make sense to me.
Will Sun go back? Or is it only going to be Jack? Are they going to make me go endless episodes without seeing Sayid? Does Desmond need to go back or is his story reaching a conclusion? Who were Charlotte's parents? Is that significant? Did anyone else watch the preview 14,000 times? Tell me all your thoughts!
