Once again, I can't stop myself from posting about LOST. I don't know if this will be a set in stone weekly thing (y'all know how I am with commitments), but for now I think another list on LOST is in order. ***Beware of potential SPOILERS if you have not watched last night's episode yet (what in the world prevented you?!?!?)***
*As you can see, Hugo here has assumed the leadership position, so that's pretty great. (Miles to resurrected Sayid)
*Sawyer, the ultimate lone wolf, busting out of the temple. Scary Sawyer is still worrying me.
*Sayid, the torturer, being tortured. Ay, Yi, Yi!
*Kate going back to pick up Claire at the bus stop and then going with her to the adoptive mom that changed her mind. Poor Claire!
*Jack feeling responsible for everything and still trying to fix everything. Can you say control issues? But it was rather stand-up when he swallowed to pill to test the Japanese Other Other leader.
*You're not a zombie, right? (Hurley to Sayid)
*No, I am not a zombie. (Sayid to Hurley)
*Your private talks kinda freak me out 'cuz they usually leave me having to do something I don't quite understand. (Hurley)
*We'll be in the food court if you need us. (Miles)
*Kate watching Sawyer in his old Dharma house.
*Kate and Sawyer talking on the pier. How sweet was that? Sniff, Sniff.
*Um, hello...Ethan (!!!!)
*Things don't look so good for Sayid's future, since he has been claimed by The Darkness.
*Um, hello...The Darkness happened to Jack's sister too (?!?!?!?!) Did we know Jack had a sister?
*Gun wielding, mangy hair wearing, Island Claire. (Squeal!!)
After last week's two hour LOST extravaganza, plus the recap, I felt a bit robbed with only one hour last night. I know, I'm greedy. It's just too good though and one hour at a time with a week in between is hard to reconcile myself to.
I've made peace with the two realities/timelines and now think it's really cool to be able to see what's happening real-time on the island and how their destinies are playing out back in LA. What a treat!
Remember last week's premiere post when I mentioned Matthew Fox's ( AKA Blinky McBlinkerson) heavy reliance on blinking to convey extra emotion? And how that bugs me? Well, Scott totally noticed it last night, I've converted him. HA! To prove my point, in the scene where Jack drinks tea with the Japanese Other Other Leader, I counted like 11-15 blinks before he even took a sip, like, in less than 5 seconds. That, my friends, is too much. Yes, apparently I am a Blink Nazi.
Now, I'm curious, what were some of your favorite scenes or quotes from last night? Do you read recaps or visit LOST websites to untangle your brain after watching? Which ones are your favorites (from one LOST junkie to another)?
