Hurley Knows What’s Up

I need to start off by saying that I’m incredibly happy that Hurley brought up Back to the Future when talking to Miles about all the time travel confusion.  Who called it?  Oh that’s right, I did.


Hurley waiting to disappear, Back to the Future style.

Anyway, this episode was a little confusing for me.  As Katelyn brought up, how did Sayid manage to not kill Ben?  He looked pretty dead to me in that last episode.  And frankly, I refuse to believe that Sayid can fail to kill anyone.  It has to be some kind of crazy island trickery.

That said, I’m glad that a few questions were FINALLY answered during this episode, “Whatever happens, happens.”  We found out what Sawyer said to Kate right before he made that heroic leap out of the helicopter.  And we found out where Kate left Aaron when she decided to return to the island with the rest of her group.  Both of these were major questions of mine.  I obviously have many more, which I will elaborate on in a later post.

Another thing I’m glad about is that we’re seeing significantly less of Jack in most of these episodes.  It’s not that I dislike Jack (though he has been quite PMS-y lately), but he pretty much stole the show in the earlier seasons, and it’s about time that Sawyer got his time in the spotlight.

Now all we have to do is wonder what good ol’ Richard Alpert has up his sleeves and marvel in the badass-ness that is John Lock (oh, how I’ve missed him!)


Sayid Has Obviously Never Seen Back to the Future

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.
