Oh Yeah, I Totally Forgot to Mention Illana Getting Arzted!
So, I have a quick anecdote before I get to my posting. First, our internet at our apartment has been down so I wrote this post right after I saw the episode on Tuesday night in Word and I just now got the chance to go to a coffee shop to post. Sorry about the delay, but, the two hour rule was observed, just for your peace of mind.
Also, I had a crazy Lost dream last night. I never remember dreams, a lot of times I will try and piece them together in the shower in the morning to no success. But, sometimes, I will wake up from a dream in the middle of the night and really want to remember it in the morning so I will, half asleep, find something to write on and jot down a phrase that will hopefully jog my memory. It works maybe fifty percent of the time, the other fifty percent I just wake up with the words "Humanoid Dalmatian making out with Megan Fox" written on the back of one of my comic books and have serious doubts about my sanity. ANYWAY, I woke up this morning with the words "JJ Abrams' Grave" written on the front of a paper sack. I don't remember the dream at all except it involved Hurley and Desmond trying to find a tombstone and when they finally find it the camera spun around, while strings crescendo menacingly, to reveal the name J.J. Abrams etched in the stone and the dream went black and I woke up. Anyone have anything to explain this? Anyone?
Now, to the post.
First off, the opening montage was so damn funny. And, how adorable is baby Jorge Reyes?
Obviously I am super glad that the flash sideways tied into the "combining realities" action that started last week. I feel pretty confident that that will continue for the rest of the season and that makes me really happy. Desmond as a reality enlightening outlaw from the law (Eloise)? Yes please. HE HIT A GUY IN A WHEELCHAIR WITH HIS CAR! That was so crazy. After seeing him subtly manipulate Hugo into having his moment of realization I was completely taken by surprise when he reverted to the Charlie method on Locke. So, Awesome.
I guess the biggest questions regarding the LAX reality are, "how do they permanently flip the switch off on their faux-reality" and "is that even the right thing to do?" Regarding the latter, it seems that, so far, everyone who has had their moment of realization has found their previous existence preferable. But, what happens when we get to someone who doesn't have a girl to pine after? Also, I guess Hugo didn't remember Libby getting shot in his flashes because if he did, no way would he want to go back to that. I have no idea where they are going to go with this... help? Anyone?
Now, on the island. Hurley blew up the Black Rock... hahahahahahahahah. So funny, and kind of badass. In fact Hurley kind of turned into a badass this episode on the Island, walking right up to Esau and all. I think it's really interesting seeing "Locke" and Jack having essentially switched places from the first few seasons. i.e. Locke desperately trying to get off the Island and Jack going with the flow just trying to do whatever destiny has in store for him. And the line where Jack says something like, "I can never fix it." was really nicely done. That seems to have been his realization staring out into the ocean.
I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of stuff that happened, I thought it was a really great episode. I am so happy that I am pretty much completely enjoying Lost again.
P.S. I could only find a picture of a Humanoid Cheetah. (Not making out with Megan Fox... that we know of.)
