I told you it was Michael! I told you it was Michael!
Sorry, just had to get that out of the way.
So, there were lots of questions on tonight's episode, and (surprise!) no answers.
Obviously, Michael is on the boat. So where is Walt? Still a prisoner on the island? (Remember the scene a couple of episodes in which Ben indicated there was a child imprisoned that was causing the birds to fly into the building?)
I guess it's safe to guess that Michael is Ben's spy. But why? What is Ben doing to people to bend all these people to his will?
And what about the captain? Michael says not to trust him, but if Michael is working for Ben, we can't trust what Michael says, right? (Hang on, I need to go get an Advil.)
GOOD FOR SUN for giving ol' Juliet a whack. Just when I was starting to trust Juliet, she goes manipulative again. I don't think we can trust her. I know, supposedly she was doing it for Sun's protection, but that just doesn't add up to me. I don't think doctor/patient obligation is so strong that you'd step in to potentially ruin a marriage.
The whole is-Jin-dead-or-not thing is very confusing. I wonder if that was even Sun's hospital where he visited (remember, they said it was a boy). That doesn't make a lick of sense. I wonder if he's suffering the same kind of memory loss that Desmond suffered last week.
Let's re-cap the Oceanic Six:
- Baby Aaron
- Sun (I'm guessing her baby counts along with her?)
But we know that more people than this got off the island. Additionally, there is
- Desmond (assuming he actually makes it off the boat)
- Whoever Jack visited in the casket (I'm starting to wonder if it's father, "re-dying" back off the island.)
The teaser told us that someone is dying next week. Who do you think it is? I have a terrible hunch it's going to be Claire. Can you imagine her letting anything other than her own death separating her from baby Aaron? If I'm right, we'd better stock up on the Kleenex before next week.
UPDATED TO ADD: Here are a couple of interesting sneak peeks for next week.
Just for fun, here's a poll to see which character everyone loves the most. I accidentally left off Sun, and the poll won't let me go back and re-edit, so if she's your favorite, just vote Jin.
