Meet Miles

On tonight’s episode of Lost, we finally got a peek into the life of the not-so-lovable Miles.  Until now, we only know Miles as the snarky, sarcastic, money-hungry ghost whisperer, but tonight we got to see him as a snarky, sarcastic, money-hungry ghost whisperer with daddy issues.

No, but seriously – we did see a new side of Miles during this episode.  But I’m still not sure how I feel about him.  I’m all for sarcasm, but being rude to Hurley is simply not okay in my book.  I’m curious to learn more about his father, the mysterious “guy in all the videos.”  He’s involved in some weird Dharma happenings and I feel the need to get to the bottom of them (though I obviously can’t – since this is Lost, I’ll need to wait several seasons to find out anything).

What I do know is that his ghost communication skills will come in handy at a very crucial moment later in the show.  As with everyone on the island, he’s there for a reason, and I don’t believe that reason is to reunite with his father – it has to be more complicated than that.  Plus, this show has time-travel, moving islands, and characters coming back from the dead, so it obviously needs some conversations with the deceased (a la Haley Joel Osment).

I’m getting a little frustrated that all the characters are so separated this season, which means I have to go several episodes without running into favorites such as John Locke.  So I’m sure this will be the last we’ll see of Miles for quite a few episodes.  I’m thinking that next week will be filled with the adventures of Daniel Faraday – at least I hope so, he’s been gone for way too long.


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.

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!)
