In Sideways World Sawyer is a policeman and Miles is his partner. Apropos, no? The two closest to being criminals in the Island timeline are tasked with preventing crime. Did you not fall on the floor laughing when he gave the go word "LaFleur"?!?!?
Didn't Charlotte look gorgeous? Seeing her all glammed up instead of spewing blood was a nice twist. Too bad she stumbled across his secret folder instead of a t-shirt. It was sweet he tried to make amends, but puppy dog eyes and a sad sunflower (and a six-pack) weren't quite enough to win Charlotte back.
Love that Sawyer the Cop still reads!! About bunnies!! And time travel!!
And that he eats watches Little House on the Prairie!! I didn't think I could love Sawyer more, but now I do.
Sawyer the Cop is still tortured by his past and is obsessed with finding Anthony Cooper. Nothing new there. Glad to see him tell Miles the truth, moments before the car they were sitting in was rear-ended. Sawyer, being the upstanding policeman he is, ran after the hoodie wearing car crasher, who turned out to be, of course, Fugitive Kate. Sweet.
Back on the Island, FLocke gathered his team around in front of Crazy Claire's nest and tried to reassure them he would answer any questions after they took advantage of the daylight. It seemed like a cross between a corporate team building exercise and a Kumbaya campfire moment.
FLocke sent Sawyer on a recon mission to Hydra Island after confessing he was the smoke thing. Why Sawyer you ask? Because he's the best liar FLocke ever met. And that's saying something isn't it?
Crazy Claire attacked Kate with a scary knife, while an amused Sayid looked on and offered no assistance. Oh Sayid, what has gotten into you? Oh yeah, EVIL. FLocke rescued Kate, scolded Crazy Claire (could someone please get her some bi-polar meds and a hairbrush pronto?), told Kate that in fact he was NOT a dead man, and explained to Kate the problem with crazy mothers causing their children to have, ahem, growing pains.
Like turning into evil smoke monsters wreaking havoc and leaving death and destruction in their path?
So...was FLocke warning Kate so she can keep Crazy Claire away from Aaron? We'll see.
Poor Kate, one minute Crazy Claire has you pinned down with a knife at your throat and the next she's sobbing in the jungle, begging for forgiveness and y'all are hugging it out. That falls in the Too Much category.
I didn't trust Zoe from the start, I'm glad Sawyer saw right through her as well. Will Sawyer keep his agreement with Charles Widmore? Will he keep his agreement with FLocke? Is he just playing one side against the other and ultimately looking out for #1? Will he really help Kate leave the island via the submarine?
I don't know. Yet. He is the best liar ever, you know.
