Ok, so tonight’s episode of Lost, He’s Our You, was really singular in its approach, which is odd for this season. As opposed to the multiple storylines/characters/narratives this episode was all about the duality of Sayid and Benjamin Linus.
Jumping right in tonight.
Did you notice?:
- A Separate Reality
- University of Michigan/Ann Arbor
The book Ben shares with Sayid. Check the link; it’s worth it.
I really want to the official fake Scotch whisky of Lost now.
The first reference to Michigan since the second season. Is an appearance by Gerald and/or Karen DeGroot imminent? Or maybe even Alvar Hanso?
Name of one of the boats in the harbor in L.A. in Sayid’s flashback.
What do we think of the following?:
- Does anyone feel sorry for Sayid or Ben?
Sayid and Ben both enter other camps as prisoners. Not to mention all the similarities in their fathers and the persistence (Murder for Sayid; Manipulation/lying for Ben) of their natures.
Sayid says that the next time he sees Ben there will be consequences and he makes good on his promise, despite the fact that it means – in his eyes – that he can’t change his ways.
Was Farraday wrong? Can the past/future be changed? Is the book a signal that there may be alternate realities and not just time travel?
Is he more than just the agent of this week’s title?
Why is he living in that tent?
Who was she really working for?
Why Guam if that dude was killed in the Seychelles?
What is her relation (if any) to Caesar?
So I don’t think Ben’s dead because I want to believe that the Rules laid out by Farraday are as close to Law as we’ve got. I’m not ready to give them up just yet.
That said, I also think we’ve got something more than time travel at work here. The “future” of the Ajira 316 crash seems different than the path our Lostaways were on, but then they all ended up in 1977 so who knows.
