So many people asked where my Lost post was this week, I thought I'd go ahead and throw one together. The main reason I didn't do one this week wasn't the bloggy break, it was...well, there wasn't much to say after this particular episode. I thought it was disappointing, in terms of moving forward in the plot. Here are some random observations; y'all jump in with some better ones.
John Locke becomes more duplicitous every episode. I want so much to like him, and yet the burden he placed on Sawyer this episode was just horrible. Locke has lost my trust. (And yes, I realize that's a very stupid thing to say about a CHARACTER IN A TV SHOW.)
Surely y'all caught all the Biblical imagery in this one. Locke "carrying his cross" by having his Dad on his back (Chilihead pointed that one out to me); being a "slave" to your transgressions (Sawyer committing murder in the slave ship!); even the old slave chains were used as the weapon...the list goes on. Redemption, redemption...I've said it a million times, but I'll say it again: this show is all about redemption.
I'm just sure that Kate is pregnant. And I also predict that Sawyer, who has now gone back to his bad-boy roots by killing a man, will probably not exactly be a Cliff Huxtable kind of dad.
I'm dying to know what secret Juliet and Jack are keeping from Kate (remember when Juliet said, "I think we should tell her"?). What could it be?
And why, oh why, did Kate tell Jack about the phone and the parachute rescuer RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF JULIET? Really, sometimes I think these people will never learn.
Last thing--I just read a rumor about the next three characters to die. If it's true (I don't know anything about this person's sources), two of the three are very, very shocking. Click here if you want to see, but it's a big-time spoiler.
Weigh in, Losties.
