What an amazing ending to Lost tonight! Dr. Jack laughing and playing football with Scary Bearded Other Man? WHAT IN THE WORLD? No more than a couple of days could've elapsed since Kate and Sawyer left him, right? And already he's been brainwashed? OR maybe he's learned that they're actually nice people. Ooooh, so help me, those writers better throw us a crumb on the brainwashed Jack storyline next week.
Now, Claire. Her character has always bugged me a little--she has such a chip on her shoulder. How many times has she said, "I'M NOT GOING TO LET MY BABY BE AROUND YOU!" on this show? But after her brilliant note-on-a-bird idea, she's redeemed herself in my eyes.
It appears that Desmond (brutha!) is basically following Charlie around keeping him alive (and if you have a two year old, you can relate to this situation.) IS IT really inevitable that our Charlie is done for?
Last thing: John Locke. You know, I know, everyone knows that this man holds the key to the mystery of the island. It's just a hunch I've had from the very first episode, and many at the message boards agree (yes, I'm dorky enough to visit the Lost message boards). His whole C-4 stealing stunt makes no sense. The bottom line is that John doesn't want to leave the island. I think that he is, in fact, sabotaging their quest for answers.
You fellow Losties out there, please chime in with your observations.
