Let’s get this out of the way. I missed the original airing of 316 tonight and am playing catch-up like the little tomato in Mia Wallace’s joke. To get tonight’s column done in the most expeditious way possible, it’s another “real time diary.” I hear this week’s show is a doozy, so let’s get on with it.
00:01 – Hmmm. this looks familiar.
00:03 – Jack diving in headfirst to save someone without thinking or checking things out. How apropos.
00:04 – She does love lighting those candles.
00:05 – A Dharma station?
00:10 – “Is he telling the truth?” “Probably not.”
00:11 – Could the Lamp post be built over the Hellmouth?
00:12 – So who built the pendulum? Widmore? Faraday?
00:13 – “Desmond just pawn in game of life.”
00:20 – John Locke’s what?
00:21 – if the original flight resurrected Christian Shepherd, will this flight do the same for Locke?
00:23 – Ben discussing biblical literature. Odd.
00:24 – Ben tying up loose ends = trouble
00:26 – I admit I don’t remember this guy. I’m sure he’s been in an episode before.
00:29 – So, does Aaron need to go back too? Or not?
00:34 – Make-up sex?
00:35 – He’s not sure how she takes her coffee? How long have they been broken up?
00:37 – What has Ben done now?
00:39 – You probably should have read that note, Jack.
00:44 – Guess this guy will be important.
00:45 – I bet BKV took some ribbing over that product placement.
00:46 – Good old Hurley. Looking out for everyone.
00:47 – Charlie’s guitar maybe?
00:48 – “Who cares?” Ben is such an amazingly great heel.
00:49 – I’m surprised they are not in their original seats. Or are they?
00:51 – Lepidus?
00:52 – “we’re not going to Guam, are we?”
00:56 – Are you prepared to spend the day reading about the importance of Ulysses to the LOST mythos?
00:59 – So, was there a plane crash? Or just island mumbo jumbo? I guess we’ll see eventually. We saw wreckage from the crash, correct? Or just a water bottle?
1:02 – Jin? but when?
Is everyone now stuck in the 1970s? It would make for a great cross-over with LIFE ON MARS (preferably the British version. Who wouldn’t want to see Gene Hunt kick Ben’s ass?)
Next week: This is your death, John Locke.
