What a bizarre feeling to turn off the TV after a Lost episode and actually feel a sense of closure. I could get used to this.
- Obviously, Juliet is still with Them. That's a not a huge surprise, is it? And my bet is on Sayid to get the truth out of her, soon. Hubs and I laughed when Jack barked at Sayid to back off, saying "she's under my protection." Yeah, like THAT'S going to stop our Sayid.
- Clearly, our boy Sawyer (or "James", but he shall forevermore be Sawyer to me) gets nicer and nicer every episode. I love it.
- Ben and Co. didn't know who was on the plane before it crashed (as evidenced by their efforts to drum up info on the passengers). This is important! It means they couldn't have possibly have "selected" those particular people. So Hurley's numbers, the strange way their lives all intersected...if someone choreographed the whole thing, it wasn't Ben and his crew.
- The whole pregnancy issue has me a little stumped. Didn't Rousseau give birth to Alex on the island? So Claire ISN'T the first woman to give birth successfully there. Yet we know that Rousseau didn't have access to the special serum, because Juliet hadn't invented it yet. Or maybe she had and we're back to that whole time-loop theory. What about our girl Sun? Oh, I hope she and her baby will be okay.
- Anyone else think that the submarine is a trick? I don't think that's how they got on and off the island. That's why they drugged Juliet, so they could "stage" the whole thing. And WHY WAS SHE HOARSE? That was a bizarre little detail to throw in: it must be significant.
- Somebody over at the ABC message boards suggested The Unified Field Theory as an explanation. You can go read it over in Wikipedia here. It makes not the slightest bit of sense to me, says the girl who had to take remedial science in college.
