Lost: Sundown

Brevity is the soul of with.

Not sure what that has to do with this blog post, except that it will be short.

A list:

  • Sundown
  • Nothing like a Western-themed “clear out the town by picking sides” episode.

  • Who is pulling the strings in 2004?
  • Sayid killing Keamy and then finding Jin?
    All the crazy connections still in play?
    When do we see Jacob? or the Man in Black? or Widmore? or the Dharma Initiative?
    What’s the thread in that reality holding everything together?
    The island?

  • What does Kate’s choice mean?
  • Not much of a choice but – and I can’t believe I’m doing this – I’ll quote Rush’s “Freewill”:

    You can choose a ready guide
    In some celestial voice.
    If you choose not to decide
    You still have made a choice
    You can choose from phantom fears
    And kindness that can kill;
    I will choose a path that’s clear-
    I will choose free will

    Knowing that major theme of the whole series is destiny vs. free will I’m curious to see how they (finally) make use of Kate, whom I believe has been mostly wasted as nothing more than a romantic foil to Jack & Sawyer.

  • Sad about Sayid
  • Whether or not Jacob represents good/God and the Man in Black represents evil (“evil incarnate”)/the Devil, it can’t be a good thing that Sayid so readily leapt back into his killing ways.

    Kudos, though, to Ben for the scene in the temple. Can’t wait to see how the whole Jacob’s Bodyguards storyline resolves. I’d like to see Jin & Sun get back together.

Baby nights are taking their toll. Feel free to comment.

Until next Tuesday.
