Kate said it best. “Welcome to the wonderful world of not knowing what the hell is going on.”
What I Liked:
- I never get tired of talking about how much I love Elizabeth Mitchell’s Juliet. She’s like the female Ben
- Locke finally joining the Others (even if he’s faking).
- Hurley conning Sawyer into being the leader figure of the beach due to Jack, Kate, Sayid and Locke’s absence
- An actual decent Kate flashback
- The return of the smoke monster
- Kate vs. Juliet! In the rain! Then they fall in mud! It was like a horny nerd who is dying got his Make-A-Wish Foundation letter answered.
- Because there are no repeats, the story feels like it’s progressing quickly.
- The look on Kate’s face after Jack asked about Juliet while she was all crying and pouring her heart out. Consider him moved on.
What I Didn’t Like:
- It wasn’t a great episode per se but it was good
What We Learned:
- Kate (this time using the name “Lucy”) helped Cassidy (Sawyer’s con victim from “The Long Con”) avoid the cops when she was trying to con a guy into buying fake jewlery
- Cassidy helps Kate confront her mother to ask why she called the cops on her
- Cassidy was pregnant with Sawyer’s baby
- The Others and Locke left Othersville
- Juliet does not know what the smoke monster is
- The smoke monster can’t get back the sonic fence
- Was Juliet really left behind by the Others or is she playing another one of Ben’s games?
- If she was really left behind, why?
- Is Locke really with The Others?
- Why did Kate and Juliet wake up a full day ahead of Sayid and Jack?
- Did the smoke monster read Juliet like it did Eko?
- If so, does this mean her days are numbered?
- If the smoke monster isn’t a creation of The Others, then what did it come from?
- Is the sonic fence around Othersville more to keep people out or to keep the smoke monster out?
- Did you see how big Hurley’s shirts were? What would Hurley have done if his luggage was lost in the crash?
