Let's Talk About Television: Lost 5x06 - 316

Ahhh, the solution to a long, mildly annoying day; Lost and a mug of tea. And away we go.


And again with the unexpected.

Well, it was sort of expected. I think we all knew this episode was coming SOMEday. But was anyone thinking it would already be here? I think I was getting an inkling last week, or the week before, when I realised things were going very fast, and this episode had to happen, or things had to Go Wrong.

Not a lot to say about the episode itself, it was pretty straightforward. For a change. ;)

At last we know about Christian's shoes. Why does Jack's questions always be kinda lame? What's the deal with his tattoo? What's with the shoes?

This episode was ok. It got things going where they needed to/had to go, and sets up a number of stories for the future. What did Kate do with Aaron? Who beat the holy hell out of Ben, and why? What happened to Sayid? Although I did enjoy the symmetry of another federal prisoner being transported. Sayid fulfilling a role Shannon once accused him of many years ago before the first flight.

I loved seeing Frank again, and it makes me wonder...is Desmond somewhere on that plane? That may be an answer to my Ben questions as well, I theorise.

I've got a sneaking suspicion we'll be dealing with everyone else's story - Kate's, Sayid's, Ben's, etc - before we really get back to the second crash. I'm not sure how I feel about that. On the one hand, I want to dive into what happens next (Jin! Working for Dharma! Is *everyone* stuck in the 1970s now, after the island stopped shifting?), but on the other hand, I don't want to leave those missing pieces hanging too long, either. At least next week, we get Locke's story.

A slightly lesser episode, but still I'm loving this season. Things are really coming together.

Thoughts of yours?
