Lost: Eggtown

Another flash-forward episode, this time centring on the lovely Kate with one heck of a sting in the tail. The quality level for this season continues to amaze me, even if this felt a little like a place holder episode for the real mindblowing stuff to come. Again, references abound. A Philip K. Dick novel (Valis) right up front. Then Daniel Faraday's mind reading card trick ("what do you remember?" asked Charlotte) seems to indicate there's some time travel/time rip stuff coming. And did we also find out the identity of one more member of the Oceanic 6, namely baby Aaron whose mere presence seems to be preventing Jack (the pre-bearded not yet wanting to go back to the island version) to get jiggy with it with Kate. Plus, when Jack took the stand as a character witness for Kate during her trial, he made reference to the cover story of what supposedlly happened to Oceanic 815 — ie. that it sank with only eight survivors — which means whoever we're dealing with has the resources to sink an airliner simply as a smoke screen. Think about that for a second... That's pretty bleedin' trippy, right. There's a pretty illuminating interview with Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse on ew.com (click the headline to link to it) in which they spill a few beans about the future direction of the show, including their decision to reveal who was in the coffin before the season's out.

I didn't read the interview yet, but i will, thanks for the links.
In the meantime, this episode was great, especially the end, when we learnt that Kate's baby is Aaron! that can mean so much things: Claire died, which will probably will be the case, but all the other died with her, and they really was 6 survivors... but, if it is the case, why did they made up this story about the rescue? The other solution is: some of them stayed on the island (i think about Sawyer) and don't want to be found... but then again it's not so simple!

i can't believe they released that crap. i refuse to listen to any commentary on the show BEFORE it happens. why would they release that?! if you don't let yourself get sucked into the show then don't watch. i've seen some blogs that have been like, "the final (boring) seasons of lost will plod along like usual". i get so angry when i see that crap. stop watching. stop spreading your shitty attitude about a TELEVISION SHOW and episodes that haven't even happend yet!

PLUS! it IS lost... they could be completely fucking with everyone with these big reveals...
