WHAT THE WHAT?!? The Variable

WHAT!!! That is all that I could say after the above logo appeared on my tv. WHAT??? I was all set to do my usual recap, but this woman just killed her son. Not only that, she knew that she was sending him to his death from the future and insisted that he go.
Craaazzzzy woman. You gets glimpses of her crazy in the beginning when she won't let Daniel play the piano. Lady, don't you know that if you got a kid who wants to play piano, you hold onto that for as long as you can? Then you force that child to practice when he/she would rather be doing anything (even cleaning her room).
Not that that happened to me. I wasn't forced to practice. That's why I took lessons for 9 years and know 1 song. I know my mother is just so proud.
I digress.
I just cannot get over this episode. I was taking notes and everything. Like there's gonna be a test.
The hubs told me this week that this was all heading to a way to prevent the plane crash, but they will have to decide if they want that, because they will never meet and become friends/lovers/friends again if the arrive safely. My son even chimed in and said that somehow the bomb would factor in. I will give them their proper credit. That is the way it looked like it was going. Until Ellie shot her grown son that she hadn't given birth to yet. Or had she? I don't remember another baby in Camp Other.
Ok. There was a glaring over site tonight. Did anyone else catch it?
What was that in Hurly's beard? A tiny little white speck or crumb. I couldn't pay attention to what they were saying in that scene for trying to understand how that could get past makeup.
Or was he eating and being sloppy? I may have missed that part. See, I couldn't even tell you what they were talking about.
My favorite line of the night from Sawyer: "Your an...other?" Sheer poetry, people.
Or the one where he refers to Daniel as H.G. Wells. Priceless.
I was so hoping that we could get away with not frightening a child. Daniel knows that his telling her won't work and will just scare her while intriguing grown Charlotte into coming and dying on the island. I had higher expectations from Daniel.
Apparently when they say "Gather what you can." they really mean "Form a militia, with all the guns you can find." And lo and behold they needed those guns at the Shootout at the VW Van.
So we find out that all of this is Desmond's fault. He failed to push the button and a plane fell out of the sky.
I just can't wait to find out what the instructions in Daniel's journal are. How in the world are they going to get back and like the Hubs says, are they sure they want to?
We shall see.
In case this doesn't make any sense at all (to you Losties that is) it is super late and I'm not firing on all pistons. I'll probably read this in the morning and it will look like this:

To you who don't watch, you're used to it.

Hi Jen! Like the blog makeover! Very slick. :)

Ok, so... did Eloise really know she was going to kill him? I think her sending Jack, Kate, et al back in time, and then Daniel seeing their photo, is what has him hopping a sub and seeking at the Others. I talked about this in my write-up, but I don't think she knew he was going to die when she sent him on the expedition with Widmore.

And I hope hope he isn't really dead... maybe they'll whisk him off for healing in the temple??

Oof. This episode was kind of overload... but I LOVE IT :P

Sarah Eliza @ devastateboredom said...

Hmmmm highly insightful point about Ethan... I will admit that that is a hick-up in my theory. ;P But I have to say, the writers have been known to just kind of slur over details before -- I think we bloggers think things through a lot more thoroughly then them sometimes. So we'll see!

Sarah Eliza @ devastateboredom said...

PS They should totally consult we bloggers before each episode... it would be spot-on then! ;)

I am holding out on the Island to heal my "twitchy" friend....gotta love Sawyer's nicknames, huh?

There is just no way a nosebleed will not occur if this all changes the Oceanic 815 crash, the Hatch and everything else we've invested in over these past years.....they can't do this to us~!?!?!?!?!

My recap is up.....feel free to pop over and leave your link!
