We got another excellent episode this week, a lot happened so it’ll be tough to comment on all of it, but I’ll throw some thoughts out there.
Desmond episodes are always epic and Happily ever after was no exception. Lost awesomeness all around ! And it certainly made a lot of things more clear, even though we of course still don’t know exactly where we’re heading.
Desmond Hume is the key. He is the only one who is aware of the other timeline during the flash sideways and acknowledges how it is somehow fake. Like Faraday said (very nice appearance by him by the way, for some reason I really like his character), this is not what is supposed to happen. It’s like everybody picked a better ending for her/himself in the sideways timeline. The bomb set this timeline off, and now it’s up to Desmond to somehow correct it. And he is now a man with a plan, as he asked for the passenger list of flight 815.
At least this episode moved the story along, albeit just a little bit. I didn’t care much for the flashsideways, the story was very predictable. Although Jin was just the bodyguard in this timeline, but became a bit more than that to Jin along the way. Mikhail getting shot in the eye was a funny touch though.
