LOST “What Kate Does” Review


So tonight’s new episode of LOST “What Kate Does” once again added more to our confusion. You would think that with only a few episodes left they would start giving us some clues as to what is going on, right? Turns out… not really. I have a feeling they might pack a lot of the answers in the last few episodes.

We did however learn a few things tonight, so let’s talk about it.

First up, the Sayid story. Last week ended with Sayid miraculously coming back from the dead, and the theories went wild. This week, we learned that Sayid is infected by some sort of darkness that will change who he is once it gets to his heart. And so what do the Others do? They try to kill him (what else?). Oh and how do they know what’s going to happen to him? The same thing happened to Claire, say what?

So now I’m confused. What is this darkness they are talking about? And what does it change people into? Although, I have to say that I don’t think that Jacob took over Sayid like some people think, because if it was him, then why would the Others want to kill him? Especially since they seem so horrified that he was dead in the first place. But I could be wrong, with the Others you can never be sure.

Of course they ended the episode before we could find out more. Damn them for showing us Claire and then take it away from us.

Apart from that, tonight’s episode also had some emotional moments with Sawyer longing for Juliet (yes I admit there might have been tears). But I will say this, this probably killed any hope of Kate and him getting together for now, because that would just be wrong.

Speaking of Kate, she had a great storyline in “What Kate Does” but mostly in the no plane crash story. How genius is it that Kate and Claire are fated to meet and have sort of a bonding experience whether the plane crashes or not. I have a feeling that their story together is not over and we’re going to see more (at least I hope so).

This episode also set up Jin’s story and how he’s probably going to be looking for Sun, and hopefully get reunited with her. I mean she left their daughter behind, they better get reunited, right?

On a final note, I have to mention It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia‘s Rob McElhenney who guest starred in the episode as Aldo. It was so much fun seeing him as a douche, although it’s too bad we won’t be seeing more of him, seeing how his character is dead and all.

And so, we have to wait another week to find out more about what Lost is really all about. I have to say though, every episode goes by so fast it’s so frustrating, I want more.

But now it’s time to share your thoughts on tonight’s episode. What or who do you think is infecting Sayid? What about Claire, do you really think something took her over? What do you think of the no plane crash story?
