Thank God the Lost that we know and love is finally back. There's a lot to think about after this excellent episode.
Where to begin?
- The Others are not Dharma. In fact, they wiped out Dharma and took over their stations. It seems that the Others are more the direct decendents of the same folks who made the Four Toed Foot Statue... but this begs the question - if our theory about the Others not being able to make babies is true - how is this possible? Is this infertility a recent occurence due to centuries of inbreeding?
- Solid flashback. Even if it didn't contain some huge reveal about Sayid or the Island, it was intense, well-done, and fit with the theme of the episode. Very nice.
- Hello and Goodbye Ms. Klugh. It's kinda funny - the writers said that the actress who played Ms. Klugh had such a busy schedule that they weren't able to get her back for earlier episodes this season. They finally get her back... and immediately kill her. Now she can get back to whatever other projects she was working on.
- Speaking of which, although the Others seem to adhere to an eye for an eye mentality with crime, they are also willing to die to protect their secrets. We saw it on Alcatraz, and now we saw it with Ms. Klugh. What's this huge secret?
- John Locke once again hoses our Survivors. He's acting weird, spending all his time inside the Flame Station playing chess on a computer, and then indirectly leads to it blowing up... just like he led to the Swan Station blowing up. I'm telling you, John Locke wants to become an Other and stay on the Island forever.
