This episode of Lost was exciting, although I am sure some people will tell me they are not as interested anymore, but oh well.
Did Locke make some kind of psychotropic drug? If so, where did he get the ingredients? Boone comes back to the show as Locke’s spirit guide, and says lots of cryptic things.
Anyone else think it was kind of weird that my poll made a joke about Desmond coming from the future, and he was naked because he travelled through time like the Terminator? Well it appears that was not just some funny joke, but in fact was probably right. Desmond tells Hurley that Locke made a speech, and then later he does make the speech. Desmond is from the future.
Hopefully Locke will have Mr. Ekko healed up and ready to go battle The Others, which on a side note, anyone else think it is funny how the rest of the Losties have no clue about The Others, or anything that goes on around the island? You know what those people are good for? Dying. Or prolonged backstories…
Speaking of backstories, Locke’s was interesting. He lived on a hippy commune that grew lots of marijuana, and he had lots of guns. This does finally explain how he became all Rambo-esque. When does he become paralyzed and start working at a box company? Or lose his hair…
Charlie was cracking me up this episode, with all his smartass comments to Locke. Hopefully he will have a more interesting role this season, instead of crazy guy who tries to kidnap babies and debates using heroin everyday. I would like to see Ekko or Locke teach him to be a hunter or something.
I kept wondering when we would see the second polar bear. Since creepy Other dude told Sawyer that it took the bears two days to learn how to get the fish biscuit, I figured there must be another bear running around somewhere. Also, seems a bit weird that none of the Losties really explored the question, “why are there polar bears on a tropical island” after the first season. Granted, they have only been on the island for like fifty days, and survival is still the main thing, but come on, who wouldn’t think about it? I know I would.
The preview for next week shows Sawyer being tortured and possibly dying, and Kate being asked if she loves him. I think Ekko, Locke, and Sayid could devise a plan to save them, but they will have to work together.
