And I have to say, I’m actually TOTALLY cool with the alternate parallel universe thing, if that’s what it is. I think it’s way hipper than the time travel, which was just really annoying. I’m guessing that this way, since Juliet said, ‘It worked’, they have to come up with some awesomely cool way to get everybody to together AFTER they land so they all have to come back to the island. Clever. And much more satisfying than any freaky time loop theories.
I’m not sure what else to say about this season premiere. I did like that they poured ash stuff around to keep the black monster out—wasn’t the same stuff at Jacob’s cabin the first time we went there with Ben? So, cool, they’re not totally doing a Rimbaldi. That was what JJ Abrams did with Alias, a gimmick that he carried all the way through the series and never resolved. It was the most unsatisfying ending to a series I’ve ever seen, and on the special features, Abrams said, “What is Rimbaldi? Well, it doesn’t really matter who or what he was, it is how Rimbaldi effected each character that is important.”
Um HELLO, no, the audience tends to care to know what it is they’ve invested in, thanks, otherwise they get grumpy and stop watching your stupid show.
So with the revelation of the ash, I’m hopeful that we will not get Rimbaldied, and that indeed it will be revealed just what it is we’re invested in. Otherwise, I’m going to get really, really grumpy.
I probably won’t stop watching the stupid show, though. ‘Cause I’m lame like that.
A few questions I want to ask, though. Why did Locke/monster boy cut some of the cloth of the rug? And do we know that Richard was a slave from the Black Rock? Was that revealed sometime and I just missed it? And why is the stewardess with the temple folks? Haven’t we seen her with the “Others” in a previous season? The Bad Others, I mean, not the ones who are trying to protect our heroes. Did anybody else expect Sawyer to pull out the line, “Other other Others?” No? Just me? All righty then.
Favorite moment: When Hurley shouts, “DUUUUUDE!” when the temple guy smashes open that onyx. Awesome.
