I didn’t take notes on last night’s ep. Thought it was good, not great, but I’m glad the show is back on-air.
— who is Faraday’s mom? We think probably the white-haired lady
— why are Desmond and Locke “special”? Are they “constants” for island people (i.e. Alpert, Ethan)
— who was the baby in the opening montage? That *has* to be significant. I’m thinking there’s a Jin/Sun connection
— why does time keep changing? Is Ben still turning the wheel?
— why do they all have to be on the island to make it right? A Back-to-the-Future kind of thing?
— How did Locke get back to the island? Who joins which “team”? Is Ben good or Evil? When/how did the pilot (can’t remember his name… looks like Nick Nolte) die? Is Jin really dead? Is Locke really dead? Will he be “reanimated” once he returns to the island? These are probably the season-long questions…
–I have a crush on Faraday. Yes, Sawyer was shirtless for 2/3 of the night, but Faraday is cute to me.
–Hurley is still funny. I loved the “I need a cool code name” line and the exchange with the woman in the gas station. ‘No, I think you heart them.’ ahahah!
— It was good to see some old characters re-appear. Except Hurley’s dad. I hate his hair.
— I don’t understand why Juliet isn’t giving up more about what she knows of the island. It seems as if Faraday/Charlotte/Miles are now the “information keepers.”
— Speaking of Charlotte, it’s pretty clear that she’s dead a la Roger Workman. The bloody nose gave that away. Originally I thought it meant that they had moved to the future (after her real-life death), but that’s not the case. Has she been dead the whole time? Or does time travel somehow make her sick? And how did Roger Workman KNOW he was dead, yet she’s oblivious?
