Lost, Vol II, Episode 3

Locke has gone round the bend. Had he stopped to think, he'd have realized that Desmond was pushing the damned button all by himself. There was no need to insist on sharing the load and demanding that Jack do it. How about that lowdown Hurley, realizing the final number was incorrect and halting his objections. And just where does Desmond think he's escaping to, anyway?

Treachery and madness everywhere.

(Yes, we did celebrate my niece's birthday, but they left before the show came on.)

Locke definitely knew only one person could do it. But he wanted to get Jack to push the button... to admit the minute shred of doubt he had that "nothing is going to happen." Make that "leap of faith," cross the line... I don't know if it was because Locke didn't want to be alone, wanted help, or if he thought he was helping Jack.

Who knows where Desmond is off to, but the arrival of Jack & Co. rocked his world. All this time he though there was no "there" out there, he had similar doubts that anything would happen, but he couldn't break away. Maybe he knew someplace to go but never had the nerve, or maybe as he said, he's just going as far as he can. All that mattered to me is that he didn't get offed, a la Ethan. Lots of folks felt pretty cheated when someone with answers got conveniently killed off, and I hated the prospect that they'd do it again. Of course, with the "Orientation" film, there are some answers independent of Desmond. A whole hatch full of clues to explore!

As for the zombie thing... there have been a few secret script pages hidden like that. One had Jack finding his twin. The other had the monster being revealed. None ever panned out. I think those are mostly fun writing exercises that they decide to share with fans, if only to watch us get excited!

I have GOT to get the season one DVDs. Soon I'll have time to watch as I'm currently obsessed with Alias. Aren't the both JJ Abrams shows? Is the man an evil, evil genius?

Yes indeed, they are both Abrams' inventions. You really need to get the first season DVD, if only to get much of the backstory for each character (although more is yet to be revealed).

I bought the DVDs today. Happy? Now I'm never going to see the sun again. ;-)
