So, after last week‘s Lost episode, I guess the writers had to give our minds a break because not much happened this episode. Except for, OH YEAH, CHARLIE DISCOVERED AN INHABITED UNDERWATER HATCH! If I had been standing, I would have been jumping with joy. Instead I just cackled and kicked my legs on top of my husbands lap.
Really, wasn’t that great?! They had me all stoked that Charlie was going to die, then 2 girls in uniforms and automatic weapons come running for Charlie. Oh. I’m still cackling.
In other Lostie news, I STILL CANNOT STAND JACK. What is up with him coming to terms with his leadership role? He’s been acting like the stinkin’ king of the island for 3 seasons. And everyone continues to bow to mighty Jack and his fantastic ideas. Like the one where they get a crazy lady to carry dynamite. Or the one where he trusts Juliet. Or the one where he fixes Ben’s back. Or the one where he deserts them by hitching a ride on a submarine. Ugh. He turns my stomach. I won’t even talk about Juliet. Her smarmy little smiles will only do one thing–win her an Emmy, baby.
This episode did feel a little like a reunion though, didn’t it? When was the last time the main cast members were all together? Even Bernard & Rose. Which actually felt a little out of place.
My only other take-aways were:
1. Someone lied about the underwater hatch. Juliet said Ben told her it was not in use and flooded. Well, he lied to her or she lied to the Losties. And I’m leaning toward Juliet since she’s basically diabolical.
2. The girl Charlie saved was Sayid’s girlfriend. I wonder if these chance encounters mean something and we’ll find the connection OR are they just to make us crazy?
3. The underwater hatch is called “The Looking Glass” which is another allusion to Alice in Wonderland. We had the white rabbit make several cameos, and a few episodes named for Alice’s adventures. Maybe that’s what the island is–Wonderland.
So, what did you do when Charlie made it into the Looking Glass?
