LOST “316” Review (Season 5 Episode 6)

Lost

What did you think of tonight’s episode of LOST, “316”?

Shyte! Tonight’s show was good but first I need to get a few things off my chest. The last time I flew I got my lip gloss confiscated but yet Jack makes it through security with a corpse and Hurly buys 78 empty seats without arousing any suspicion? One thinks not. Also, Jack’s grandpa and Sawyer need to get their eyes examined because I spent the whole show trying to find a freckle on Kate’s face and came up empty handed. And come on, would Kate and Sun really leave their children behind to go back to the island? That is just ridonkulous.

Okay, now I feel better so let’s talk about the show. Do you think Eloise is really Faraday’s mom? Ben and Eloise never really confirm or deny the accusation when Desmond brought it up. What if Widmore sent him there as a trap, to banish him back to the island? Either way, I hope he and Penny made it far away after he left the church. One thing that got me worried is that Ben sees Desmond at the church. Do you think he went looking for Penny afterwards? He did vow to kill her after all, AND we see him later covered in blood…

So it looks like 5 of the oceanic six (plus Ben, a dead(ish) John Locke and Lapidus) may have made it back to the island. I loved Lapidus’s line, “We’re not going to Guam are we?” He reminded me of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Here’s a question though, does the plane actually crash? Also, do the other random passengers get transported to the island as well? Then we see Jin outfitted in Darma clothing. Did they go back in time? Maybe that’s how Locke is able to come back to life?

Before I close out for tonight, I wanted to bring up something my friend Sterling made me aware of. Apparently the show Fringe has some subtle references to Lost in it. From what I heard there are references to the numbers as well as to the characters. Has anyone else noticed this? Please share more info on this if you have some. Talk to you next week!
