Dude, you might want to fasten your seatbelt.


Tonight’s episode of LOST was riveting.  We start on the plane and get to watch Frank deftly ground the aircraft, with minimal injury to his passengers (except the poor co-pilot). 

Have you ever noticed how two people never die the same way on this show?  The writers are trying to out-do CSI episodes…tonight we saw “death by tree branch.” 

I didn’t quite understand why the Oceanic Six disappeared off the plane, separate from everyone else.  Also, is the rest of the plane in 1977?  Somehow I doubt it since the Dharma folks didn’t notice any aircrafts crashing on the island.

Ben was even more deliciously creepy tonight than normal.  “I’m going back to our island...wanna come?”  And I just gotta say…Sun, you rock.  Way to go when you bashed Ben in the head.  Although I wouldn’t want to be you when he wakes up. 

So we found out that Amy’s baby is Ethan.  If you remember, Ethan helped recruit Juliet to come on the island. [By the way, you can go to Characters of Lost on Wikipedia and get refresher courses on everybody.]

My favorite line of the night (said to Jack) was, “Based on your aptitude tests, you’ll be doing janitorial work.”  Way to stick it to him, Sawyer!  The man-drama between these two was pretty intense tonight.  Jack is having a hard time not being the one in charge, but Sawyer is doing a good job of holding the reins.  I predict that Jack will soon start rebelling and going out on his own…in effect they are trading roles.

The whole scene between Sun, Frank, and Christian was just weird.  Since he told them they have a “long journey” to find Jin, I assume that he knows how to send them back in time to 1977.  We’ll see.  One thing’s for sure…I can’t wait to see a Jack/Christian reunion.

And, alas, my husband ACCIDENTLY TURNED OFF THE DVR for the last few minutes of tonight’s episode.  It stopped where an unidentified young boy was delivering food to Sayid.  Anyone care to fill me in on how it ended?

The little boy was Ben. It was the same boy that played him in the episode "The Man Behind the Curtain".

That was a great episode....

Yes, it was young Ben who brought Sayid food....he asked Sayid if he was a Hostile, and then Sayid asked him his name, when he said made Sayid concerned (but to my knowledge, Sayid doesn't know about the time warp stuff yet)

I did a little recap over in my world if you feel like popping over and leaving your link too!

I totally agree with your prediction that Jack and Sawyer are more or less going to switch roles... did you see the description of next week's episode? It says that one of the Losties "takes matters into their own hands" and I'm pointing fingers at Jack. :P

As for a Jack/Christian reunion, do you think Christian is really alive again like John? He has that weird eerie island connection thing going on, which makes me feel like he's just kind of undead... but I have no idea really.

Looking forward to clicking around your site! :)

Sayid also may have been concerned when he met Ben b/c Ben was one of the ones who helped wipe out the whole town... and now they are in the town!
