Time for my thoughts on this week's episode. There are numerous sites that do recaps so I'm not going to do that, but I am going to share my thoughts on what happened.
*****SPOILER ALERT - IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED 5X05, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SPOILED!*****
Season 5, Episode 5 - This Place is Death
~So, last night I actually took 3 pages of notes while watching LOST. That helped me remember that random things I wanted to comment on today.
~Now how about little Ji Yeon. Is she not adorable!!! Question - will she have to go back to the island since she technically left the island with the Oceanic 6, albeit she was in her mom's tummy, but still, it would seem to me that she would have to go back too.
~Why is the radio tower repeating the numbers? I've also seen this morning that some think that it was Hurley's voice saying the numbers. Hmmm, what could that mean?
~Smokie - HE'S BACK!!!
~I thought the blonde French dude was going to have a major part in the goings on, but then his arm got ripped off, so we can only assume he was just another causality of the island.
~OK, how about the temple? Those were hieroglyphics on the side of it. Is it Egyptian???
~I was shocked to see Danielle kill all those with her. But that kind of explains why she pretty much went off the deep end in those 16 years she spent on the island.
~I loved the reunion between Jin & Sawyer.
~And it was absolutely hysterical watching Sawyer try to explain the time travel stuff to Jin.
~We know that Ben went to see Locke and that's how Ben knew about Jin, but why did Ben go to see Locke?
~I was surprised to see Sun come onto Ben & Jack's side so easily. I thought she would be the last holdout.
~How does Charlotte know Korean? Latin wouldn't surprise me, but Korean? And the Klingon comment was pretty funny!
~Was anyone else creeped out when Charlotte told Daniel, "This place is death!"
~Another favorite line, Ben to Sun - "If you're going to shot me, get on with it!"
~Oh, so what about the possibility of Charlotte being Ben's friend Annie? I think it might be possible.
~So who is Charlotte's mom & what happened that she left the Dharma Initiative and lied about it to Charlotte?
~And how could Daniel be the crazy old man when he is young now? Hmmm......
~Why in the world did Jin want Locke to lie to Sun? You would think that he would want her to know that he was really alive. This one confused me!
~And now we know that the time jumps originate from the well. Why was the well filled in? Was the Orchid station built there to cover it up? And how does Charlotte know about the well? Has she time jumped when she was on the island before?
~I still don't buy that Daniel is in love with Charlotte. I honestly think he is her father. It was sad to see him watch her die.
~Why did Christian want Locke to move the island? Why did Ben take over and move it for him?
~Another favorite line, Christian to Locke - "Since when did listening to him [Ben] get you anywhere worth a damn?"
~And then we see that Christian wanted Locke to be the sacrificial lamb.
~Why couldn't Christian physically help Locke? Maybe Christian is a figment of Locke's imagination that he conjured up to help him?
~Does Locke know that Jack is Christian's son? Christian obviously thinks so since he told Locke to say hello to Jack for him.
~And then we see Desmond! Woo-Hoo!
~And I was right in my theory that Mrs. Hawking is Daniel's mom.
~My final thought - what in the world does Mrs. Hawking mean when she tells Ben that the 4 of them will have to do for now? I thought all of them had to go back to the island. What are they fixing to do!!!!
~Next week's episode is called 316. I think that will be the flight number of the Arija Airlines flight that takes the O6 back to the island.
There's my thoughts for what it's worth. Tune in next week for my thought on 5X06 316.
