Time for my thoughts on this week's episode. There are numerous sites that do recaps so I'm not going to necessarily do that, but I am going to share my thoughts on what happened.
*****SPOILER ALERT - IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED 5X07, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SPOILED!*****
Season 5, Episode 7 - The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham
~OK, we know this first guy on the episode is from the Ajira Airways flight, but who the heck is he?
~And what time period are they in that no one is around in the others camp?
~I'm guessing that somehow when the Oceanic 6 disappeared off the plane to a time about 30 years in the past, the plane and it's passengers ended up in the present.
~And we knew Locke was alive, but what was up with the hooded thing on his head. Reminds me of seeing Mrs. Hawkings in an earlier episode when she was wearing a hood
~Who do you think the woman was who took one of the longboats with Frank? Maybe Sun? But why wasn't she in the past with the other O6ers?
~How come if Whitmore had cameras in the Tunisian desert, he didn't see Ben end up there?
~From the info we got from Whitmore, Ben sounds like more and more of a bad guy with no good in him.
~If Ben tricked Whitmore into leaving the island, how did he leave? the submarine? the donkey wheel?
~And what war is coming on the island?
~I was shocked to see Whitmore was the one helping John.
~I knew they would have to come up with a way to kill off Abaddon since the actor who plays him is a regular on JJ Abrahms new show on FOX called Fringe (awesome show by the way - it's like LOST meets X-Files).
~It was great to see Sayid doing something positive.
~My word has Walt grown. I saw an interview with the actor who plays him and he said he'd love to come back on as a regular. We'll see what happens.
~And that sneaky ol' Ben is spying on Locke. Shame on him!
~Cracked me up when Hurley realizes that Locke was really there.
~Saw a screenshot of the painting Hurley is doing and it's an Egyptian sphynx with camels and people all around it. Maybe the 4 toed statue is part of something Egyptian????
~Almost cried when Kate asks John about being in love and why it didn't work out. Because he was angry & obsessed & he still is according to Kate!
~So sad to see that John's love Helen had died. That was the beginning of the end for Locke I think.
~And then HOLY CRAP!!!!! Abaddon is shot & Locke is in a car accident!
~The meeting between John and Jack showed how bad off John really was. He was seriously having some issues.
~And then, time for John to die. OK, I knew Ben was involved, but I didn't expect him to murder John like he did. And it was hearing about Mrs. Hawkings that sent him off the deep end. What the crap was all that about?????
~Ben sets the scene to make it look like a suicide. Didn't he look evil while doing that????
~And then back to the island. Should we be surprised at all to find out that Ben didn't go back with the O6? Obviously he's not as special as he thinks he is!!!!
There's my thoughts for what it's worth. Tune in next week for my thought on 5X08 LaFleur.
