An ok episode this time. Moving the story forward quite a bit. In the flash sideways the losties are getting together to get ready for some sort of event that will show what the purpose of that story line is. I didnâ€™t care too much for it this time. Desmond is acting a bit odd in these and out of character. Never thought of him as a manipulative second hand Jacob.
We did get the answer to the â€˜was MIL also the appearance of Christian Sheppardâ€™ question. In a rather straightforward manner. Of course we already knew that and the answer to â€˜whyâ€™ was rather blunt â€˜well you needed water !â€™. At this point in time the answers to the question will either be â€˜well duhâ€™ or theyâ€™ll be totally out of leftfield and be unsatisfying.
Sun and Jin finally got together ! But they didnâ€™t get much chance to enjoy the moment as Widmoreâ€™s gang jumped on them on the beach. Jack returning to Man in Locke was interesting. The bombshells trying to kill (?) MIL were a bit silly. I seriously doubt you can kill him that way.
S: Sayid ainâ€™t invited, heâ€™s gone over to the dark side.
H: Yeah, but you can always bring people back from the dark side. I mean Anakin..
S: Who the hell is Anakin ?
What is the deal with Sayid ? He seems indeed gone over very far to the dark side and is quite zombielike, but I am sure he didnâ€™t kill Desmond, so somehow there is still something human inside him.
Nice topic over on the Whatâ€™s Alan Watching blog: What answers would you like from the last few episodes of LOST ?
