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 5X16, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SPOILED!*****
Season 5, Episode 16 - The Incident
~so much emotion and shocking stuff in this episode, I laughed, I cried, I was sick to my stomach, I was screaming, WOW! Amazing episode for sure!
~the blanket/wall hanging being woven in the opening scene obviously had Egyptian writing on it, what was the significance? I'm wondering if it's Jacob's rules for the island or something in that vein
~interesting talk about the loophole, we heard that word several times last night, hmmmm....
~was completely shocked and gasped outloud when we finally saw Jacob for the first time, made me want to watch again for Season 1 to see if Jacob was ever in any other episodes and we just never noticed
~wondering who the guy talking with Jacob was
~Russ & I discussed a couple of different theories about Jacob & this other guy, my first thought was God & Satan especially seeing them wearing white and black, better thought though is Jacob & Esau, especially once we see Jacob giving blessings to several of the O6
~random thought - wonder what time period the beginning clip was in after seeing the ship with sails, definitely not present time period
~laughed out loud when I saw Kate steal a New Kids on the Block lunchbox, you've got the right stuff, baby, you're the reason that I sing this song, lol, ok back to LOST
~found it interesting that Jacob made both Kate & Sawyer promise him something only for them to completely break those promises
~not sure what the deal with the Ajira passengers discussing Frank as the possible candidate was about, was hoping for some clarification but never got any last night
~literally screamed at the tv when Nadiya was hit by the car and died
~the shootout in Dharmaville was as violent as I remember the show being, that was a tad bit overwhelming for me
~love, love, loved that we got to see Vincent, Bernard, & Rose last night; I love that they retired off by themselves; such a beautiful couple
~Russ was asking me about the ashes around the cabin; if I remember correctly, the circle of ashes was complete when someone was inside the cabin (Jacob, Claire, Christian), but now that they are broken, no one is inside; any other insight on this one?
~wondering what happened to Iliana that she was wrapped in bandages in the hospital
~the scrap of cloth in the cabin was from the wall hanging in the beginning of the episode, correct?
~found the title of the book Jacob was reading, Flannery O'Connor's Everything that Rises Must Converge, very interesting in light of all we've seen happen in this show thus far
~it almost appeared that Jacob touching John after his father pushed him out the window brought John back to life, interesting!
~the blessing Jacob gives at Sun & Jin's wedding was one of the blessings I alluded to earlier
~how come if Jacob lives in the statue, he has always been in the cabin when we saw him before last night?
~I've seen the fight between Jack and Sawyer coming for awhile, they really have it in for each other
~what Juliette's parents said to her completely broke my heart, "Just because two people love each other doesn't mean they are supposed to be together"
~And then the discussion between Juliette and Sawyer, oh my gosh! "What we had was just for a little while" & "If I never meet you, I'll never have to lose you"
~Jacob and Hurley talking is another time when the blessing is mentioned, Jacob telling Hurley that he is not cursed, but blessed
~the O6 are back together to try to work things out, loved the live together, die alone line!
~And then all h-e-double hockey sticks breaks lose! The magnetic stuff beats the crap out of everyone!
~the scene between Sawyer & Juliette had me literally crying my eyes out both times I watched the episode; I think this is the only time we've seen Sawyer emotional like this; this completely reminded me of the was it Season 3 finale with Desmond & Penny professing their love over the telephone; priceless lines! "Where you think you're going blondie" "Get those chains off, hold on" "I've got you" "I can't" "I got you"
"Don't you leave me" "It's ok" "I love you" "You don't let go" "I love you James, I love you so much"
~finally we find out the answer to the "What is in the shadow of the statue" question; Richard speaks Latin and says "Ille qui nos omnis servabit." Translation: "He who will save us all." So who is going to save them?
~holy crap about the dead Locke! So is the alive Locke really Locke or is it someone impersonating Locke? This one has me completely baffled!
~the loophole is mentioned again when Ben & Locke go inside the statue to see Jacob
~Another great set of lines was Ben's speech "Oh, so now after all this time, you've decided to stop ignoring me, 35 years I lived on this island and all I ever heard was your name over and over, Richard would bring me your instructions, those slips of paper, those lists, and I never questioned anything, I did as I was told, but when I dare to ask to see you myself, I was told you have to wait, you have to be patient, but when he asked to see you, he gets marched straight up here as if he was Moses, so why him, hmmm, what about me that was so wrong with me, what about me"
~I didn't know if Ben would go through with it, but he did. Just stabbed Jacob and meant it!
~What the crap was the deal with John kicking Jacob into the fire? Completely LOST about this!
~then Juliette gives her life to explode the bomb, what an amazing ending to an amazing season!
~Next winter, destiny is found. Who's eye do you think it was in the flash at the end of the preview for season six? My first guess is Jack. Any thoughts?
~Well gang, it's been an amazing season. Thanks for coming along on this wild ride with me. See you in a little over 7 months!
There's my thoughts for what it's worth. Tune in through the next few months for new thoughts & clips on what's happened & what's to come, & next year for the final season of LOST.
