So, how many of you watched the season premiere of Lost last night? I thought it was a good episode but at the end – I felt kind of dumb. This is not an uncommon feeling for me after watching Lost. I love the show and it’s exciting and mysterious and, sometimes, just over my head.
I consider myself a reasnably intelligent person. Not the smartest smurf around but certainly not the dumbest either. So, As I’m watching last night, “Libby” (who apparently isn’t Libby anymore since Libby is DEAD) walks into the room where they’re holding Jack. Jack looks at her and doesn’t even acknowledge that she supposed to be DEAD! If you were in this situation – wouldn’t that be the first thing you addressed? Yes, you’re in some sort of holding cell. You already know this as you’re being held prisoner. So – rather than exchanging niceties – wouldn’t you say something like “How are you alive?!?!” or “How are you here” or “What really happened when you were shot” or, if nothing else, “What the crap?!?!” Did Jack say any of these – nope. And he’s a doctor – a man of exceptional intelligence.
So, most of the rest of the show I “got” but there were still parts that confused me a little:
Why did the kid in the other cage yell for Sawyer to run the other way?
Why were Kate’s wrists so messed up when she had only worn the handcuffs for what seemed to be a few hours at the most?
Why in the world did Jack think his dad was having an affair with his wife?
Why is Jack seperated from Sawyer and Kate?
Who else watched it? What did you think?
