Having seen some trailers for this episode on Sky One, I thought that this may be the episode that would break the pattern I felt Lost had fallen into. If it were to have followed the pattern, this should have been a fillerey episode; which, although good (as most Lost’s are) had no real point. Well, episode 6 did break the pattern – it was quite a good episode actually – but not as good as The Constant.
So, this episode was about Juliet and, it was a flash-back.
Another episode, another poke from the Lost producers / writers in an attempt to make you ask “Who is Ben’s man on the boat?” It is now feeling as though we won’t find out until the finale / mini-finale-cliffhanger episode (that’s number 8…) I’d like to think that it isn’t Michael, but as the season goes on, it does seem likely that it is going to be him [especially since Harold Perrineau’s name has shown up at the beginning of every episode so far this season [some silly contractual issue that is, in a way a spoiler]]. Though, with Lost, there is always a twist – perhaps it is too obvious for it to be him? Surely the majority of people are thinking that it is Michael.
Anyhoo… Widmore just got a little more interesting – How does he know about the island? And presumably Ben too. Did he know that Desmond would end up on the island, or is that another coincidence? [I’m inclined to think the latter]
The fact that Jacket / Jackilet / Jack & Juliet both saw the Psychiatrist woman in the jungle is pretty weird – was Ben really the one who sent this ‘message’?
The flashbacks in this episode didn’t seem to serve that big of a purpose except for the fact that Juliet is Ben’s…[?] Perhaps he will kill Jack at some point in the future… lol.
Lots more questions as usual, but I do hope some more get answered.
