A Hurley episode! Whee. One of my top 5 favorite characters, tied with number one with Charlie.
Also MICHAEL! HAI, long time no see. Interesting that the whispering is people who can't move on. Like purgatory or something? So that is one minor mystery solved sort of.
Libby and Hugo are soul mates. So sweet. I got a little teary when they kissed and he remembered. They are so awesome. So the secret is to kiss your soul mate in Sideways world and then you will remember Island world. Or have a near death experience which is no fun.
There were a lot of explosions. Ilana, didn't see that one coming. Shocking, but she was always a redshirt anyway. And the Black Rock, oh well. I'm sorry to see Richard gone. I hope the Island isn't done with anyone in his party yet. I'd like to see him back. I'm sure we will.
Desmond is looking very placid now. I wonder what he knows. Is he still experiencing Sideways world? Is that what inspired him to mow down substitute John? I'm guessing it was either to awaken his Island memories or he is pissed off that Locke threw him down a well. Who didn't see that Locke was about to push Desmond into the well? Did Desmond? Anyone with the crazy eyes who is suppose to be dead should never be allowed close enough to kill you. I think Desmond might know who Locke really is and that scares Locke. He looked a little afraid himself.
Locke also had a weird look in his eye when he said hello to Jack. And Jack looked so shocked. Did he really not believe that Locke was walking around?
The words are colliding and will merge soon, maybe? Desmond is pushing everyone towards the Island which is funny since he hated it so much in Island world.
Oooh, I almost forgot blonde kid and his freaking out of Locke. Desmond saw him too and the whole thing made Locke so angry. And his angry seemed to amuse the kid. I'm guessing Jacob? Or he is the original body of the MIB or ... something?
And Jack actually admitted that when he was in charge nothing ever went right so he is letting the others take the lead. Which is hard on him, but he is trying. Way to be smart for once, Jack.
Also next week's previews were awesome/creepy with the Gene Hackman/Chocolate Factory voiceover.
There's no earthly way of knowing / Which direction we are going / There's no knowing where we're rowing / Or which way the river's flowing / Is it raining? / Is it snowing? / Is a hurricane a-blowing? /
Not a speck of light is showing / So the danger must be growing / Are the fires of hell a-glowing? / Is the grisly reaper mowing? / Yes! The danger must be growing /
For the rowers keep on rowing / And they're certainly not showing / Any signs that they are slowing!
