Jensen’s Preview: What you should have read before watching on Wednesday evening. Still has great info.
Jensen’s Recap: A quote:
To be honest, I was surprised to see Locke resurrected so quickly. Whenever I envisioned his reanimation, I always saw it at the end of an episode — a big reveal, a swell of Michael Giacchino score, and then BONG!…title card. Nope. We got the Risen Locke right away, in a moment that belongs on a clip reel of Quasi-Mystical Pop Culture Characters Who Introduce Themselves With A Dramatic Removal Of An Oversized Hoody. (See: Obi Wan Kenobi; Gandalf; Spock in the original Star Trek movies.)
Tom on Life with Mrs. B from Facts of Life:
A recent episode of Life, my second favorite TV show, had Tom appear, again as a bad guy, biker dude. His mother, played by the lady from Facts of Life, got scammed, so he scammed the scammers. I still get chills thinking about Sawyer shooting him in cold blood.
“That’s for takin the boy off the raft.”
The weird sky behind Hurley at Santa Rosa Mental Facility
Did anyone else notice the Hawaiian skyline above Hurley’s Mental Facility behind the haze and occasional flashes of white? I don’t know if it was a hazy day or some remastering to hide the local background which may or may not be similar to Santa Rosa, CA. I doubt it is plot related, but I did notice it.
A good ep, but not a great one.
For some reason I didn’t enjoy this ep as much as I thought I would. Maybe my expectations were too high. I knew from the previews that Locke was alive on the island. There was some interesting background about Widmore and a shocking scene with Ben. We knew Locke would die, but we only thought we knew how. But overall, it was filler, part of the story that had to be told.
Most interesting quote from the ep:
Charles Widmore: ”There’s a war coming, John, and if you’re not back on the Island when that happens, the wrong side is going to win.”
