Tonight’s episode proved a little too intense for Jenn, who had to turn away at the Pulp Fiction-esque syringe scene and who deemed the entire first half “too graphic”.
All in all an episode about Sawyer, but a few questions were answered and some events came into sharper focus.
Given my recent poor track record on these recaps, I’ll be brief (too late); brevity being the soul of wit, or some such thing.
- The Sub
8 – The pacemaker/sedated bunny
248 – Munson’s prison #
840 – Sawyer’s prison #
23C – The lockbox/PO Box of the money Munson embezzled
Did I miss any?
Ha, ha. Every man for himself.
Con Man screws Con Man to get out of prison, only to find himself conned in the present by a group of Con MEn who compare “their” island to Alcatraz.
Who wants to bet that Clementine in Albuquerque isn’t the daughter of James Ford?
I’m thinking that Sawyer falls into some of the same patterns as Locke. He really should know better, based on experience and general temperment, but he still keeps fucking up/getting screwed.
So, yeah, two islands. Didn’t see that one coming.
Any guesses as to whether it’s just those two or if there’s an entire damn archipelago?
Me? I think that the island chain looks like one of the numbers and/or a Dharma symbol from space, assuming you can see it.
Which begs the question: did the Swan hatch exploding cause the radio silence/lack of connectivity referred to by Mr. Friendly? Sure seems like it. Which begs another question: if the communications are down, did The Others download their Lostie data prior to the explosion and are they TiVo’ing those cartoons Jack was watching or do they have partial connectivity?
Jack, Sawyer and Kate must be awfully important to the plans of The Others to avoid a worse fate than a half-hearted beatdown of Sawyer by an already-injured man. Colleen is dead and it just seems to convenient.
Was Jack meant to see Benjamin’s (?) spinal x-ray?
Was Colleen meant to die? (I still think she and Benjamin had an affair.)
Did The Others know Kate would choose to stay captive.
I just have the sense that someone amongst The Others has a power similar to Desmond’s or communicates regularly with someone who does. Otherwise their moves and motivations seem almost too perfect, too scripted.
I mean, it was fun to see Benjamin con Sawyer, but it was a little off.
I’m guessing his newfound (?) abilities and the fact that Jack is gone, Eko is incapacitated and Locke is flaky make him a good candidate for a new leader of the Losties.
Plus, I think his power someone links him back to Penelope in some way, or at least provides an excuse for more of their story. I hope so.
The end of the Season 2 finale needs to be payed off soon. I want to know if Penelope can find her lover.
That’s all I wrote. Go to bed.
