ABC’s marketing department promised us answers and boy did we get them! In fact, the big questions on every fans mind were finally answered. The connection between Darhma and the Others? Nope. The story behind that ancient foot? Not quite. The reason Locke’s in a wheelchair? Most definitely not! The big answer we finally received was, well, umm… What was the story behind Jack’s ‘mysterious’ tattoo.
Well after watching last night’s installment of LOST, I’m quite disappointed to report that ‘the story’ wasn’t nearly as interesting as it could have been and as far as this TV addict could see — had little to no relevance to what’s really happening on the island.
Yet again we got a Jack flashback, which essentially told us the same thing we’ve learned from every other Jack flashback since day one. Jack’s a leader, he likes to act as the saviour for helpless woman and he’s on some kind of journey of discovery. Talk about must see TV.
That said, with my new mantra of just ‘shut up and enjoy’ there were a few things that I really found interesting about the episode.
• The introduction of a new somewhat evil Other named Isabel. The island’s sheriff, second in command? Judge? Who knows. I’m sure we’ll find out three seasons from now.
• The fact that Karl has never heard of THE BRADY BUNCH. It could mean he was born on the island. Who in the world hasn’t heard of THE BRADY BUNCH?
• That not so surprising revelation (considering it was in the promos) that Cindy and the children are still alive and are ‘watchers’. What exactly are they watching? Definitly not THE BRADY BUNCH.
• The Dharma logo — or what looked like the Dharma logo — on the podium inside the meeting discussing Juliette’s verdict.
