It always happens in movies and in TV shows. Someone finds a way to go back in time and then they inevitably change everything. They do one thing and it sets off a chain of events that leads to something terrible happening – it doesn’t matter if they think they’re doing a good thing that will change the world for the better – it WILL end up bad. I promise.
So I’m a little disappointed in Sayid, who on tonight’s Lost, made this same amateur time traveler mistake. I won’t go into any more detail about what exactly happened, in case some people missed it. I’m just going to say that all these people who travel back in time should watch Back to the Future beforehand (or at least listen to Daniel Faraday), because I’m pretty convinced that what happened tonight will end up having adverse effects.
That said, I still love Sayid.
