I'm waffling back and forth on whether I liked or disliked this episode. It was a cool episode to see them get back to the island. But there was just too much that didn't gel for me.
What didn't gel:
-Sun deciding that she needs to get on the plane in case Jin is alive. She didn't seem to get any proof from Faraday's mom that Jin was alive and she's ready to leave her baby behind?
-And the even weirder one, Kate acting strangely calm that Aaron is suddenly gone. I'm sure it is something like Ben took Aaron back to the island and Kate will only see him again if she goes, too. But how would that happen?
-Ben's bloody face and injuries. He obviously got into it with someone, but who? Was it part of the Aaron kerfluffle? Or was he enacting his revenge on Penny? I sure hope that it is not the latter. It is ok that the island isn't done with Desmond yet, but please don't take Penny away to help make that happen!
What was cool:
-Hurley carrying the guitar case on the plane. Did he have to bring something of Charlie's on the plane the way Jack had to bring something of his dad's? Did Charlie convince Hurley that he had to go back (again)?
-Jack's grandfather being alive?! And doesn't he seem suspicious? LOL How convenient that he happened to have a bag packed. There seemed to be so much symbolism in this episode around those darn shoes.
Is it just me, or do you look forward to next week's episode like crazy after seeing the preview? ;) It was exciting to see Locke "alive" on the island talking to Sayid's female marshall. As usual, I'm stoked for next week!
