Are you happy? Some answers…wait no, those might have been lies. So I guess more questions.
What I Liked:
- Sayid is still the biggest badass on the island
- His flashback, while good, was kept short. I hope that is a sign for the future as we are running out of things to learn about these castaways.
- Sawyer asking Nikki, “Who the hell are you?”
- The introduction of Mikhail, the newest Other
- We learned more about the Others in this episode than in episodes featuring the Others
- The return and exit of Ms. Klugh
What I Didn’t Like:
- As much as I enjoyed Sawyer getting whooped by Hurley in ping-pong, considering how many episodes actually constitutes a week on this show, I don’t think I can go the rest of the season without a Sawyer nickname
- Nikki and Paulo were given lines. I know once we get their flashbacks I will be more interested in them but right now, they are the new Shannon and Boone.
- Since when is Locke an idiot? Didn’t he watch War Games? Talking computers are not to be messed with.
What We Learned:
- Sayid was a chef under the name Najeem in France where he was kidnapped by the family of one of the women he tortured
- There was a war between the Others/Hostiles and Dharma and it appears the Others won
- There is power cables running throughout the island
- The Flame station was for communications and they lost communications via satellite and sonar after the Hatch imploded.
- Hurley is a great ping-pong player due to his time spent in an institution
- Paulo likes to flag magazines
- It is likely that Kate’s horse came from the Flame Station or the Othersville.
- It sucks to be an African-American cast member
- Like most average Americans over the age of 40, Locke should not be trusted with a computer
- How much of Mikhail’s story is actually true in reference to what happened to the Dharma group?
- Was Danielle really just hiding out in the forest or was she up to something else?
- Why did Ms. Klugh tell Mikhail to shoot her?
- Since Locke entered 77 into the computer, is the Dharma Initiative now aware that their hatches have been compromised?
- What was the Dharma Initiative’s true purpose?
- How long have the Others been on the island?
- Is the cat Nadia the only animal that survived the explosion?
- Does Sayid now understand why Jack always hates going into the forest with Locke?
