Wow. My brain is tired after watching that. I’m really liking how they had to cram 8 episodes into 5 due to the strike. So action packed. Hopefully next season won’t be like molasses in comparison.
Again, as with my other Lost posts, if you have not seen the episode, stop reading NOW.
So Christian isn’t Jacob – but he’s his PR guy or something. And I did not expect to see Claire sitting there. (Oh, that rhymes!) Is Claire alive or dead? Or both? And how does Locke keep that info quiet?
Could you imagine that conversation with Ben and Hurley? “So, guys, um, there’s this guy Christian, and he’s wearing this, like, shirt buttoned to the top button – that was weird. But what was really weird was that Claire was sitting behind me. Without the baby. And she wasn’t even yelling “My baaabay!” or anything. So that was doubly weird. Oh, and he told me that we have to move the island. Yeah, that’s about it.” Ben and Hurley:
And what is up with Christian’s “island casual” look? “Oh, let’s see, I’m dead, I’m on a tropical island…I’m kissing this suit goodbye! Where can I get some island cazh around here?”
My guess is that Jacob (or whoever) used Christian’s body as kind of a shell. Why not use someone else as a shell? Maybe it had to be Christian in order to complete the plan, etc.
Oh, and what’s with Christian telling Locke, “We don’t have time for this.” Wasn’t Christian just sitting there for a while before he introduced himself? Wasn’t that concerned about time then, was he?
Abaddon is creepy. Especially when he looked right into the camera when they first showed his face. And now we know why Locke went on the walkabout. It was his destiny or something. So I guess Abaddon doesn’t age just like Richard Alpert doesn’t age?
And how creepy was that that Alpert was already there when Locke was a baby?
Poor Locke. Nobody cut him a break. Not even Alpert when Locke picked the knife. Alpert just gets up and leaves. So not nice of him.
I wonder if teenage Locke ever did go to Alpert’s camp? I’m guessing he didn’t. Was that part of destiny or did that mean that the Others had to try harder to get him to go to the island?
I’m guessing Mrs. Hawking (the time travel lady) and the monk (who had a photo of Mrs. Hawking and himself in his office) are somehow related to Abbadon and Alpert. They may be on opposing sides of destiny, maybe? Wow, that sounds way too esoteric.
So Locke is supposed to move the island. Okay, no problem. Move as in earthquake, or relocate the island?
Keamy is sooooo bad. (Bad in a bad way, not bad in a good way.) How evil can someone get? And what was that on his arm? It looked like a little radio. I thought it might be some type of gun, but didn’t the gun blast come from somewhere else? And now that the captain is dead, who’s going to steer the boat? The actor that plays Keamy is not only tall, but he is big. I bet when he is walking around Hawaii, people cross the street and run.
In the beginning of the episode, where the mother called her daughter “Emily”, I was going through my mental Rolodex of Lost characters. It took me a minute to figure out that it was Locke’s mother.
Anyone notice that in the previews for next week, Jack is wearing a suit when he is on the helicopter? Is that his suit from when he arrived on the island? Didn’t that get torn up? He had time to change into a suit? Wait a second…maybe Jack took Christian’s suit, since Christian’s wearing that nerdy buttoned-up shirt. “Hey, look, there’s my dead dad’s suit! Yeah, we’re about the same height…that should fit!” The mysteries of Lost keep continuing…
