Let's jump right in, shall we? (*Spoilers ahead, if you haven't watched tonight's episode yet*)
First, I'd bet my bottom dollar that JULIET IS STILL LYING. She's playing nice-girl with our Losties, but I think she's still a double agent. She said the hatch was flooded and abandoned, but clearly this was not the case.
Second, in the category of Their Lives Are Intersecting Once Again, did you notice that the woman Charlie saved in the alley was Nadia, Sayid's girlfriend?
Along the same lines, I just saw some speculation at the message boards that maybe one of those girls in the underwater hatch was Annie. Remember Annie? Ben's childhood friend from last week?
I really, really, really want Charlie to be okay, even though I have a sinking feeling that the next episode will be his last. When he wrote that list to Claire, and number one was "The night I met you,"...well, that's more than this hormonal girl can take. Tears. Big ones.
And, this is a minor detail, but it proves how much motherhood has TAKEN OVER MY ENTIRE WAY OF THINKING, when Charlie left that ring in Aaron's crib, all I could think was, "Get that ring out of there! It's a choking hazard for that baby!"
I mentioned earlier this week that I've started listening to the ABC Lost podcast, featuring producers and actors from the show. It's fantastic, and here is some of what I learned this week hearing what they had to say--
- The producers want Libby to come back! I don't think they meant she would come back from the dead, but more as a back-story character to round out the mystery surrounding Hurley.
- They promise that a flashback from Rousseau is in the works! Now there's a story worth hearing...
- The producers promised, once again, in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, that the Island is not Purgatory. I was glad to hear that with my own ears.
Okay, folks--let's enjoy the next seven days. Seven days of anticipation for the Lost season finale, and then it's eight very, VERY long months of Lost-lessness. I can hardly bear it.
