Some Quick Answers (And More Questions)
Hello all, long-time reader first-time blogger, Bennett. Seems like last night Evan got his wish on one and a half of his questions. Not a lot, but considering how much LOST has been giving us each episode, I anticipate more questions will be answered in the weeks to come.
As for Evan’s list – we know where Aaron is. It was almost sad when Roger asked Kate if she had any kids and she replied “No.” But then I saw her get all frantic and half-ass scared at the Supermarket and I felt very little for Freckles. Evidently, I felt about as much for her as she did for Aaron. She left him in a motel room to be picked up by his grandmother, who, if you ask me, always looks like she’s about to cry. And she’s nowhere near as hot as Claire (even dead Claire). I miss dead Claire.
Speaking of missing people, did Juliet tell us that the other doctor was “down in the Looking Glass with Faraday?” I’ve been wondering where that guy was ever since he stared wistfully at young Charlotte. But I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of him.
Meanwhile, Miles did a terrific job answering (most of) Hurley’s questions about time, and their place in it. Their conversation was one of the most informative and funny things about last night’s episode. I think he is much more relatable than Daniel and damn less moody.
Jack, though, was moody enough for all of them. I am not sure what to think about the sexual tension between him and Juliet in the bathroom, but she sure seemed hurt by his refusal to help. I also got the impression that she might still have feelings for him. This happens at the same time Sawyer is telling Kate that he wants to save Ben for Juliet.
On that topic, am I alone in thinking that if I got to that point and realized what kind of shit was going to go down because I gave the kid to Richard Alpert, I’d seriously consider just walking back to the van and letting little Ben die on the trip back to the barracks? Do you really want to save one kid THAT much? Do you really want to save THAT kid THAT much?
This interaction brings me to my last observation, which was the conversation between Alpert and the anonymous Other. When Alpert decided not to tell Ellie, and seemed unafraid of what Charles would do, I got sorta tingly. Not for the mascara, but for the info that they were still around on the island that late in the game. It’s the mid-’70s and Widmore and Eloise Hawking are still on the island. This would half-answer Evan’s inquiry on Widmore, or at least tell us that he hasn’t left yet and that, hopefully within the rest of this season, we’ll find out when/ why / how Charles and Ellie depart.
I’m sure Evan will have his take on the episode, and I definitely glossed over some things (Roger Workman sounding all Michael “That’s my kid!”) but I hope I hit the high notes. I will leave you all with what are, I hope, Aaron’s last words on the show: Juice Box.
