Seriously, this time travel stuff makes less and less sense each day.
Why on earth did Faraday think that he could change the past? Seems pretty simple that he can’t, or maybe I’m just slow. I like the theory “whatever happened, happened”. It doesn’t really go against free will, because they are still making choices, it’s just that the consequences of their choices are already known. Hmmm, somehow that made a lot more sense in my head than it did all written out like that….(I wonder if the LOST writers feel the same way?)
But I actually loved this episode, and although I did see the whole Charles Widmore’s a Daddy thing coming, I was not prepared for Eloise to put a slug in her own kid. I mean, you can’t blame her–she was just being a good soldier, after all—but to have to live her life knowing that her son was going to grow up to be killed by a younger version of herself? Puts mommy guilt on a whole new level.
And that was a different actress for Elly, wasn’t it? Or am I just not remembering properly?
And hopefully, they don’t really try to change things. I mean, how could they just erase what happened to them? Reminds me of the scene in Back to the Future when Michael J. Fox is getting erased as he plays the guitar, which Hurley oh so brilliantly referenced in an earlier episode. It’s freaky stuff, man.
Did you see the look on Juliet’s face when Sawyer called Kate “Freckles”? Daggers, baby. I almost wondered if Juliet told Kate the wrong code, just so she’d get fried on the fence. Wouldn’t put it past her, although Sawyer does seem to be having a good influence.
Let me just say, in conclusion, that Desmond and Penny are awesome. They’re like the shining beacon of hope in all the rest of the chaos. May they always be together. And I hope Desmond reads his son lots of bedtime stories. I can’t imagine a better voice to fall asleep to.
Your thoughts, fellow Losties?
