LOST “Happily Ever After” Review


What did you think of tonight’s episode of Lost, “Happily Ever After”?

I thought it was classic. I always get chills from Eloise; that women bloody terrifies me. So this whole time I thought the parallel reality was happening unbeknownst to the people living in it. However, it seems that some folks are aware of the rift and reality is slowly unraveling for others. It also seems like love is the constant that is ‘awakening’ everyone (Charlie, Desmond, and Faraday). Btw, what did you all think of Faraday the musician? I thought he looked cute. What about successful Desmond? I thought it was cool how they rewrote the scotch scene with Desmond and Mr. Widmore, and this time Desmond was worthy of the good scotch.

Charlie creeped me out big time. He is obviously hell bent on drowning with Desmond around no matter what reality he’s in. Did you like how he went Vanilla Sky on poor Desmond with the car? Psycho! What was interesting with Desmond’s parallel reality, and what I haven’t seen with other characters (to the same degree) was all the similarities between realities. He’s given a button to push in both, he’s asked if he’s wearing any metal before being put through a machine, and of course the whole scene with Charlie and his hand.

Frightened though I was/am of Eloise, I wanted to hear more from her. She KNOWS exactly what’s been going on. She said a couple interesting things to Desmond that stuck with me. When he wanted to know more about what was going on, she said “You can’t because you’re not ready yet”. She also referred to him looking for answers as “a violation”. Something else that I thought was thought provoking was what Faraday (aka Daniel Widmore) said about Desmond’s idea of Penny, “She’s not an idea, she’s my half sister”. I took all this to mean that this reality isn’t real at all, and there is a way for them all to revert back to island reality. Does anyone else share these assumptions? If not, what are your theories?

Finally, I’d like to know what everyone thinks about Charles Widmore. Does he care about Desmond? Was he carelessly gambling with Desmond’s life, or is Desmond an essential piece of the puzzle to ‘fix’ things on the island? Lastly, is Desmond safe with Sayid?

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of tonight’s episode of Lost, “Happily Ever After”!
