Oh yeah, I guess I should say that if you don't want to know what happens in this episode, stop reading!
After last week's super action-packed episode, I should have known that none would compare for me. This just seemed like more of a filler episode. I know they have to fill us in on a bit, but I would have liked a bit more cool stuff and/or action. There were a few good moments, but I wasn't really feeling the 1970's without fun appearances by Pierre Chang or Ben and Roger Linus (Roger Linus is Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite ;) . Here are my little points from tonight:
-The Egyptian statue...very cool. Thanks for throwing that in there for us...I just wish we could have been in that timeline longer.
-Three years?! Ugh...I was hoping that our 'lefties' didn't have to go through three whole years like the O6. I guess the upside of that is Jin gets plenty of time to perfect his English.
-Where the heck is young Ben? This is obviously pre-purge, so I thought it would have been really rad to see him. Guess they are saving that? How will it work with "now" Ben coming back to the island on 316 still in this timeline?
-Women always deliver on the mainland? Why? There seemed to be no problem with Amy's little boy, so why did the women always go off island? Maybe there was just something special about this one...
-Does the Dharma Initiative love to serve milk or what? Sawyer's being interrogated and he's drinking milk. His 'people' are chatting out at the picnic table and drinking milk. Why not some Dharma brand beverages? ;)
-Daniel seeing little Charlotte...how sweet! You can't help but feel sorry for poor little Charlotte, but I'm sure she's not really dead anyway.
-Richard Alpert!! He makes my night. I just love seeing him, and my personal theory is that he's an angel. Yes, I know that it's complicated and I don't really have a very cohesive theory, but that's my theory and I'm sticking to it. The "hostiles" are angels guarding the Garden of Eden. Ok, feel free to think I'm a flake. Anyhoo, I LOVED Sawyer's line "Your buddy out there with the eyeliner"...that for me was the line of the night. (And by the way, I've looked it up, and Nestor Carbonell does not wear eyeliner. He is just blessed with an unusually dark lash line.)
-Richard not knowing anything about Sawyer yet. I love it!
-Sawyer and Juliet? Jeesh. But I think that this actually makes a good pair, because both Kate and Jack are so dysfunctional. Let these two troubled souls finally find a little relationship happiness. Did anyone else think that when Juliet was making dinner she looked a little pregnant? I know this is the peasant-toppy 70's, but her belly looked suspicious. I have to check her out in the previous scenes (like when she was under the van).
-But Sawyer's little speech about 3 years being plenty of time to forget someone...was he just being nice to Horace? Or could he really be over Kate? I sure hope he is!
