Oh, this episode was good. So good. Some people are disappointed in this season, but I think they are doing it right; the slow build. And there was much good in this one.

Like:

THE NUMBERS! I’m sorry, but really, the numbers!

We learn that each person is on the Island for a reason. Each one is a candidate. For…a Jacob replacement, maybe? Each person has a number. A certain person’s lottery numbers. A certain set of numbers that needed to be plugged into a computer. (PS…4 is Locke, 8 is Reyes, 15 is Ford, 16 is Jarrah, 23 is Shepherd, 42 is Kwon) (PPS. Which Kwon? And why doesn’t Kate have a number?)

And NotWalt (not to be confused with NotLocke. heh) runs through the jungle! and talks about the rules! What are the rules? Whose rules? Is this young Jacob? Aaron? Are Aaron and Jacob the same person?
And then there’s a black rock and a white rock on the scales. and NotLocke tosses the white rock into the water. AHA! I get it! Jacob is dead. Jacob was the white rock. The Smoke Monster/NotLocke is the black rock. THE BLACK ROCK. Interesting….

And BEN. Oh my god, you guys. Ben. Ben in LA teaches European History and he rants about coffee pots and wears vests and shakes hands with John Locke the substitute. AWESOME. and back on the island Ben gives eulogies…”John Locke was a believer. He was a man of faith. He was a much better man than I will ever be and I’m very sorry I murdered him.”

And, oh, Sawyer. I love how he growls and reluctantly follows NotLocke, even though he totally knows he’s not Locke, and says “I guess I should put on some pants.” LOVE. And then Sawyer almost dies on Jacob’s ladder and NotLocke saves his life and convinces him to choose what’s behind door #3.

    I loved this episode. So awesome. And I’m digging the alternate life with everyone so connected with each other. Creepy but good. I must admit though I kept expecting Locke in alt life to die since he was dead on the island. Don’t know why, just had it in my head the whole episode.
    And the kid running through the jungle pissing of smokey was cool. Did he mean he can’t kill Sawyer? Is it that he is not allowed to kill the candidates? And how interesting that Richard couldn’t see the kid but Sawyer did. Does that have something to do with the candidates as well? And Richard scared shitless was pretty cool.
    Good call on the black rock, I hadn’t put that together even though it’s so obvious! There are theories that smokey and Richard landed on the island with the Black Rock boat. I’m not necessarily convinced by that because when Jacob and smokey where sitting on the beach they saw a boat in the water and I assumed it was the Black Rock. Looks like maybe this black rock business is something to watch.
    This week’s episode looks like we get to see more of claire, hope it’s a good one!
