Tonight’s episode of Lost seemed tailor-made for my specific areas of expertise. I’ll go into that … now.
- Hurley the Bulldog
- The Muppet Show
- The many role reversals of James LaFleur
I guess it’s actually more like a shout-out to Josh Holloway (Sawyer) who grew up in Georgia and attended UGA for a while, but it’s cool for this UGA grad to see Hurley in a Dawgs hooded sweatshirt.
And check out the link in the bullet because Jorge Garcia (Hurley) actually responds in the comments.
I’d need to go back and check that the intro is the correct intro for 1977, but in the scene where Jin is watching the monitors in The Arrow station, the top left monitor is displaying the song & dance number at the beginning of The Muppet Show.
He’s now a thoughtful (non-brooding) reader to Jack’s (now) zen and former impulsiveness?
I also dug that Sawyer had the opportunity to torture Sayid to get information from a “hostile” (as he was tortured by Sayid in Season 1) he didn’t.
- When is the Ajira 316?
- Why is Sun NOT in 1977?
- What does it mean that the 1977 Losties know what will become of Ben & Ethan?
So, not 1977, and I’m pretty sure it’s the future but when?
Is it because she wasn’t pregnant or traveling with Ji Yeon? I’m open to theories.
Two of the creepiest moments tonight were when Amy told Juliet that she and Horace were probably going to name the baby Ethan and when Sayid learned that the boy who brought him his sandwich was Ben. (What a rotten sentence!)
Anyhow what does that particular shift in the power structure mean?
I’m still stuck in Austin in my mind so I don’t know if I’m thinking correctly about all the previously-agreed-upon narrative structures of all this time travel, but I’d really love to hear what others think about those little nuggets.
I’m missing tons of stuff and I’m doing this for the first (only?) time on a laptop.
Put me straight.
Until next week …
