Not a whole lot to recap here, eh? I mean, this episode was more about character development than true LOST lore, which is not necessarily a bad thing... it just leaves me devoid of LOADS of points to discuss. I guess after episodes like last week's, we can afford to chill for a bit.
Some interesting observations, in reading over the LostPedia rehash though:
- I wonder how much of the bribed psychic's babble was bull... I mean, did Hurley's pops make her come out with the "there is death surrounding you... and more to come" stuff? Why scare your kid like that if you are trying to help him; or was that just to help draw him in to the "cure"?
- What the hell is a VW Bus doing on the island? And is it a coincidence that it played the same song (on 8 track, no less) that Hurley played as a young boy?
- I noticed Hurley's pop's motorcycle was a YAMAHA, but it was missing letters, reading only as "AMAH". In doing my usual 2 second Google research, I find that there is a Hong Kong legend having to do with a wife waiting for her husband at an Amah Rock. Nice touch...
- What exactly was going on with the map that was in the VW Bus?
- What exactly did Desmond mean when he told Charlie that "it didn't work like that" in reference to telling him when he was going to die? Desmond can see the future, right? Does he think that Charlie would try and stop his own death, even though Desmond told him that Charlie would end up getting got some other way at some other time?
- What the hell has Vincent been doing on the island since Walt & Michael left?
So many questions, and no real answers...
I do like all of Sawyer's 'return to form' jokes at everyone, but his comment regarding Jin's English ("well, guess who's Hooked On Phonics") had me and the Mrs. DYING!
I am kind of relieved that Rousseau's journey is going to be coming to a head, because I do not like her and wish she would go away as quickly as possible. With Kate, Sayid and John on the Jack hunt, it looks like next week's ep will bring us back into island mysteriousness. Seeing "Patchy" really got me intrigued, b/c I've been wanting to know who dude was since last season.
Until next week... namaste.
