Advertisements I was soooooo happy when I realized it was the 24th today and a new LOST was on. And boy, did this not disappoint! Favorite part: Jack setting up Bernard as a spy on the boat people. Saw it coming a mile away... but tricky! I have to say, I'm really loving the flash-forward thing. I thought it might make things less suspenseful but it really doesn't: every time the island dynamic changes I find myself considering how this change might end up leading to the Oceanic 6 and the future we saw: for example when Sawyer took that group back to the beach. And the way Sayid asked Ben how he got off the island, it made me think maybe Sayid never gets back there at all. And if Widmore couldn't find the island when Ben was talking to him in his bedroom, then what happened to that ship? It had the island coordinates. My biggest "WTH?" today: why didn't Ben have a rifle trained on the mercenary who had a gun pointed at Alex? He could have said "she doesn't mean anything to me, and if you kill her you'll die next". Probably Alex would still have died but at least they would have gotten one and maybe two of the mercenary team in exchange.
