First off, let me say: cease and desist from reading this post if you are not caught up on Lost. I don't want to spoil you, so you've been warned! :)
I don't know if I can put together a recap in any kind of logical order, as 1. It was our first new Lost in..how long? Not sure if my brain is back to thinking at Lost-level, 2. I'm trying to get my house & packing in order for Blissdom which is just a DAY away pretty much, and 3. I have some type of wicked sinus infection that is working against me. Well anyway, here goes:
- Now we know that Juliet didn't really set off the bomb, it was just a time flash that moved them all forward in time. So how did Juliet (or Miles) get the idea that everything is "right"? I believe it, but that was extra confusing to me.
- I think the "new" plane sequence is really what happens after whatever on-island struggle is completed. I do think that what we're seeing is the end (or the beginning of the end) with everyone alive. That would make for some awesome sequel opportunity, no?
- If that last statement of mine is true, then I'm perfectly fine with Desmond being on the plane. He's on the plane just by 'chance' because he's not down in the hatch pushing a button. (Randomosity: how cheeseball were the graphics of the island underwater? Lost has cheaped us out on some underwater graphics before, I wonder why they can't seem to show them without making them cheesy) Anyway, the only thing that threw a wrench into my being at peace with Desmond on the place is that Jack never saw him leave. True, he might have slipped back up to a seat in first class, but the way they left his appearance mysterious is nagging at me. I also didn't like how he didn't recognize Jack at all. When Jack blows up the hatch, the first thing Desmond says is "You!" and recognizes him on sight. Hmm...
-What was the cut on Jack's neck? I don't know if a screencap is up yet, but it looked kind of like a dart hole (like The Other's crazy blow darts).
-When "Pilot Norris" landed the plane, it was weird to me. I kind of wanted to hear that it was Lapidus who flew 815 this time.
-I cannot claim original ownership of this, because I am just not that smart, but I read on a message board that Sayid coming to life was Jacob inhabiting his body. Duh, that seems so right on. Just the way Alpert was blown away by seeing Locke come back alive, the Templies (you heard it here first, lol) were shocked at Sayid's resurrection. I love it!
-Speaking of Templies I really liked the kick-ass Japanese guy. Just sayin'.
-I am so impressed with all the fans that "got" that Jacob's dark-haired nemesis really was the Smoke Monster. That scene was fascinating! Love when he says "I'm sorry you had to see me like that" =) Where do you think his "home" is? I want to say the Temple, but I don't know if it could be that "easy"?
I'm sure I could ramble on for way longer, but I'm going to go check more message boards. My favorite part of the night:
Jack saying "Nothing is irreversible" to Locke. It just blew me away. It was awesome to hear Jack have some faith again & the thought that he could possibly help Locke from being wheelchair bound in the (hopefully, future) real world was awesome.
I'd love-love-love to hear your comments! & leave me your link if you have a Lost post!
