LOST Discussion Thursday-- He's Our You
Just what the f?
Now this was an episode that ended with a literal BANG! How unexpected was that? I was like, HUH? I thought I was confused before, but now? Just WTF?
Kate's face when she heard from Chef Hurley the Waffle King that Juliet and Sawyer were living together, and not as roommates was priceless. When Jack said he knew too, she had that betrayed Kate look that we haven't seen in a while. And how come nobody from the Dharma Losties has asked her what happened to Aaron?
Jack's agreement to let Sawyer have the upper hand is confusing the new Dharma Losties, which I found amusing. He's going to be another kind of Jack, and I'm looking forward to him being less of a prick and more of a cooperator. At least I hope he is more cooperative.
All of the Sayid flashbacks, especially those when he was tripping, were needed to understand how he could possibly shoot Young Ben. When he said that this is why he was on the island again, I didn't have an clue that he was going to shoot Ben. I thought he was going to take him to the 'hostiles' and dump him with Richard Alpert. But no.....
I think the fact that both Ben and Sayid had hardass fathers makes them able to understand each other, but in turn they both hate and resent the other. What a complex relationship they ended up having.
The whole Ilana scene with the boots was a bit too reminiscent of the other spy woman that Sayid got involved with in Germany. Clearly he does not have the best taste in women. I was surprised to find that Ilana was a bounty hunter and not a US Marshall. Can't wait till all the Losties end up in the same time period to see what Ilana has to say to Sayid about ending up on the island. Guam. I don't THINK so! I still can't decide just whom Ilana is working for. The possibilities are Ben, Widmore, or that she told the truth and was representing the golf course family.
Another great scent was when Sayid was being interrogated by Radzinsky, Sawyer, and Horace and Oldham and he was asked about the different Dharma stations. Sayid describing the Swan, which was the station Radzinsky was designing with the geodesic dome, totally freaked Radzinsky out because he's sure Sayid is a spy. He's a tad bit paranoid, this Radzinsky. Also very irritating.
When they're taking the vote to kill Sayid and Radzinsky threatens to "call Ann Arbor" if they don't vote to kill Sayid, I was cracking up. How lame was that threat? If you don't do what I want, I'm gonna tell on you? Very mature.
When all the Dharma's were together talking about killing Sayid, I got totally irritated with Amy (Michelle from 24) for being such a big wimp. "We have a bay-bee now Horace." Like that's going to matter once the war starts up.
Who lit the VW van on fire? I initially thought it was Ben, so that he could spring Sayid from the jail cell, but now I'm not so sure. And why was Jin out in the middle of the night driving around? What was he up to? Could he have set the van on fire?
Did you place that druggie guy Oldham (He's Our You)? He was on that Vermont Inn show with Bob Newhart where he played Darryl (not his other brother Darryl). Cracked me right up to see him on Lost. He was on Deadwood, too. Nice to see he's working. I've always liked his acting.
So, the big question is: Is Ben really dead? I think he's hurt, but alive. Because otherwise, it just doesn't make ANY sense at all! Stumble It! JBlog Me
