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 5X14, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SPOILED!*****
Season 5, Episode 14 - The Variable
~yep, confirmation that Eloise is Daniel's mom
~my heart broke for Penny as she & Charlie waited to find out if Desmond would make it
~a little confused about Daniel, so he was fine as a kid, but then was crazy and then was mostly ok when he was on the island, and then went crazy again during the time skipping stuff and now he's sane again, not sure I understand all that
~Daniel was sure a brilliant child, what made him go crazy? His mom pushing him so hard???
~doesn't look like Phil is going to make it, care to wager a bet on if Sawyer will kill him before they leave Dharmaville?
~what do yall think about Daniel telling Dr. Chang that Miles is his son? could that be the reason Dr. Chang sent Miles & his mom off the island?
~And then with Daniel graduating and getting the grant from Widmore, it couldn't have been coincidence, it appears Widmore has been watching him from afar all along.
~And how about Penny & Daniel, are they full brother & sister or is Penny's mom the woman that is referenced when Ben kicks Charles off the island thus making them half-siblings
~loved Sawyer's nickname for Daniel, Twitchy
~the Oceanic people are splitting up again, which side will end up being the good one?
~totally was creeped out by Daniel talking to young Charlotte, ugh!
~Daniel's line was brilliant "You have to understand Jack, this is our present, it's because I hadn't been shot yet, we can't be naïve, think that nothing can happen to us, any of us can die Jack"
~sounds like Daniel thought about his plan for a long time, does Jughead have a future role in an upcoming episode?
~pretty shocking to find out Widmore is Daniel's father
~so is Eloise playing both sides, working with Widmore & Ben both?
~And then young Eloise shooting Daniel! Did Eloise know this would happen when she told Daniel he had to go on the freighter to the island? How could a mom do this to her own son????
~Read an article today that Daniel is really dead. Will Jack & Kate be able to finish his plan?
~The more I see of Eloise & Widmore, the more I wonder if Ben is actually the good guy.
~next week - erasing the past, how about the cave they swim into with the Egyptian hieroglyphics in it? Looks really interesting. Can't wait for Follow the Leader next week. Who do you think the leader is?
There's my thoughts for what it's worth. Tune in next week for my thoughts on 5X15 Follow the Leader.
