New characters. Births. Deaths. Time travel. Dharma Merlot. Beards (or lack thereof).
All can be found in tonight’s episode, “La Fleur,” but what people should really want to talk about is ….
Yeah, the rest of the episode was pretty good. But… THE STATUE!
It’s about time we got a Sawyer episode and this was a doozy. Sawyer – LOST’s Mr. Worf. Sawyer – con man again. Sawyer – creator of pithy sayings. Sawyer – romantic? A+ to Sawyer for using his knowledge of the Black Rock as a cover story. Although, Sawyer says “he didn’t go for it.” really? Having SEX IN A POLAR BEAR CAGE seemed like “going for it” to me.
Our next important question – How did Amy have the baby? And WHO IS THE BABY? Since this is Lost and there are seemingly no MacGuffins, it must be something right? Early Internet speculation is leaning toward Ethan. At least we know it’s not Ben or Locke. And, show of hands, who went “Uh oh” when they saw a pregnant Dharma chick on the island?
If you’re Juliet, do you really hide your doctoring skills for three years, before emerging from underneath one of the VW buses to deliver the Mystery Baby? I was expecting Juliet to ask for 2004 medical supplies and have the 1974 doctor look at her blindly. As a Juliet > Kate viewer, it was also nice to see Juliet all cleaned up for once (although there’s a lot to be said for dirty jungle Juliet in her skimpy tank top).
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you can never have too much Richard Alpert. He takes everything in stride and never seems to get flustered. Maybe that’s what happens when you are hundreds of years old.
Many great lines tonight. Two of the best – “Thanks anyway, Plato.” and “You are not Dharma people.”
Thumbs up to Jin’s improved English. Won’t Sun be surprised next episode (not next week, hope you caught that) with his mad skills? And will the Jin/Sun reunion bring viewers to tears the way that Desmond/Penelope did last year?
Faraday + Young Charlotte = Creepy to no end.
There was one person noticeably absent from the Dharma compound in this week’s episode. Young Ben Linus. Expect to see him sooner rather than later, I’m guessing.
The ankh necklace is a great plot point that we likely will be seeing again.
Was the “circle cam” a sly wink to That ’70s Show, given that everyone was now in the 1970s?
Next week, as mentioned above, no show. Guess even Jacob can’t fight the first AMERICAN IDOL results show. In two weeks, a reunion that everyone probably did not want to happen.
