I forgot to add this, so I'm doing so now. I linked this up at Rocks In My Dryer.
Did they just turn everything we have ever believed about Jacob and MIB on its ear?
Can we believe anything that comes out of Flocke’s mouth? If we can, then Jacob has been the one “touching” people’s lives, drawing them to the island and removing free will from the equation.
I told you. I said it last week. “The time for questions is over.” That’s BULL! They even had the gall to say it again this week. Darlton, I call you out. Consider yourselves slapped on the cheek with the glove. You sirs, lied to all of us.
(I got completely sidetracked. I started watching and tweeting the men’s figure skating. Did anyone catch this? Ohhhh. My. The costumes. They got more and more ridiculous as the night went on. And twitter got more and more funny. I am sooo gonna watch tomorrow night with my tweetdeck on #Olympics. And Ice Dancing. Can’t wait.)
Where was I? Questions. Well I got plenty.
We get an in depth look at Locke’s life without the plane crash. He really needs to get a new lift for his van. Helen is still in his life and I really like her.
Then we flash and become nauseated from Smokey's viewpoint. And what were the sounds Smoky made. It sounded like gears. Odd.
And then there’s all this other stuff with Richard and Flocke and Sawyer. Flocke is trying to convince them he’s the one to trust.
1. Who was the boy that Richard couldn’t see in the pool of light? Could he be Jacob, risen from the ashes like a phoenix? (SEE? QUESTIONS!!!)
2. Why can Sawyer see the boy?
3. Where are Kate’s & Claire’s names on the ceiling of the creepy cave with the scales?
We did get one answer. Sort of. The numbers. They correspond to our Losties.
4. But why those numbers?
5. Why is it taking so long to reunite Jin & Sun?
6. Did everyone love the Sienna commercial as much as I did? (Ok, that was not a real one, but I still wonder these things.)
Ha-ha. I just realized that while I’m re-watching and typing, I have a Sawyer face. The furrowed brow, you know the one. This show is bad for those brow lines. There. That’s my public service for the week.
I will say that I loved Locke’s funeral. Ben confessing to murder. Lapidus and his funny self. “Weirdest funeral I’ve ever been to.” Yup. That sums it up. And I cleaned up that quote, just so you know.
And I liked the fact that Teacher Ben enjoys a cuppa, being a gentleman and all.
The thing I want to know is have they been leading us to believe that Jacob was good all this time to have him be the manipulative chess-playing demi-god?
Or do we disregard everything Flocke told Sawyer in the cave?
Why is Sawyer the new protector of the island? From nothing?
With all that talk about Jacob influencing the Lostie’s lives, I did find it interesting that the inside joke was the white stone he tossed into the sea.
So there you have it. I still like what someone tweeted once. I don’t even remember who. “I never feel dumber than when I’m watching LOST.” My sentiments exactly, anonymous and random tweeter. My sentiments exactly.
