Is it just me, or do Jack and Kate become more unlikeable every episode where they are spotlighted?
Let’s talk about them and some swerves from “The Little Prince” after the jump. There will be SPOILERS, so if you don’t want to know what happened tonight or you live some place where they don’t show the episode Wednesday night, read at your own peril. Thanks.
I have to admit up front, this episode did not do much for me, despite all the “surprises” pulled out at the end of the episode.
I think we all knew Jin was still alive, but I didn’t think we’d see him this soon. His being rescued by Rousseau and her crew in the late 1980s (87?88?) was a nice surprise. Maybe it’s me, but I always got the impression she had been on the island for a long time (i.e., longer than 17 years than the message indicated). It’s hard to imagine the baby-faced pregnant young scientist turning into the Jungle Warrior Rousseau of Season One.
It appears that if you’re got a lot of time logged on the island, you get the nosebleed. Does that add fuel to the fire that Charlotte and Miles may have been born or raised on the island? And Juliet’s been there a while, working for the Others in their fertility clinic. Is Faraday exempt because he met his constant?
“Sun’s Got a Gun.” Prediction: She takes a shot at Ben and hits Kate or Hurley.
So, the Grey’s Anatomy/Private Private team-up is called “a crossover event?” Let’s hope it’s received better than SECRET INVASION or FINAL CRISIS?
On first glance, that bottle of ketchup Aaron had looked like a bottle of pills. Count me as one of the people who finally thought we might get an explanation of what’s wrong with the kid.
The appearance of Claire’s mother wasn’t much of a surprise, but her lack of involvement in the DNA testing was a nice left turn. And the lawyer working for Ben was seemingly predicted by many folks on the net.
I assume “weepy Sawyer” stirred the loins of many of the female (and some male) viewers out there. I admit that I didn’t remember that Kate was the one that delivered Claire’s baby. Maybe her ending up with Aaron isn’t so wrong after all.
Sadly, the Hatch light flashback did not lead to a cameo from Boone. Too bad.
To whom do the outriggers belong? An Indian airline? More castaways?
How did episode co-writer BKV not have Sawyer make a Hawaii Five-0 reference in those boats?
Nitpick: What items do or do not accompany the time jumpers when the bright light hits? When they jumped during the boat chase, I expected them to find themselves in the middle of the ocean with no boat?
When they came on-shore, anyone else expecting them to find the four-toed statue?
Where’s Vincent? Inquiring minds want to know.
Is Jin in the same time as Locke and the others?
Next Week: Locke goes down the rabbit hole?
