I love the way the Lost writers smirk at us from behind the script. Remember a few weeks ago when Sawyer and Charlie (I think) were talking about the island and they were speculating as to what was wrong with it? “Maybe we’re in purgatory.” etc.? It was all the things we’ve been speculating for 3 seasons.
Last night’s episode was the same when Sayid said to Juliet, “I want to know everything!” That’s what I’m screaming! And Sayid is the first guy to actually ask a question. Last season they never asked questions. So, I’m glad to hear at least one!
Little did I know it was a multiple choice question. Here are the 3 answers I gathered last night:
A. Juliet is good. She has wanted nothing but to get back home to be with her sister and nephew. This is why Jack trusts her.
B. Juliet is bad. She is in cahoots with Ben. She is loyal to The Others.
C. Juliet is just selfish. She doesn’t care what she does or who she hurts, she just wants to get off the island. She’ll turn on the Losties or the Others.
I think I’m going with C. or B. or maybe A. I don’t know! What I do know is that the Lost writers love to show us only PART of what’s going on. So, I can’t help thinking all the soft-hearted scenes in Juliet’s backstory are missing something.
Other Lost moments of the night:
Kate & Sawyer’s hug! Way to be sweet Sawyer!
Jack saying, “She’s under my protection!” (puh-lease!)
Juliet revealing Sawyer & Sayid’s sins. (can we say “creeeepy”?)
Seeing the weird-patch-guy’s video screens & their ability to find out anything. (again with the creepy)
Well, I can’t believe it, we got some good stuff last night. I’m sure next week will be in morse code or something equally cryptic. *sigh* It’s good to be LOST!
