We see how Sun and Jin meet, thrilling stuff. We also get to see The Tailies in action, and a slight glimpse of The Others.
All in all this was a dull episode, I love The Tailies, but there just wasn’t enough of them to offset the boringness of a Sun and Jin flashback. 2.5/10
-The Others do a lot of democratic decision making. That’s a good sign for a group, especially one that has been through so much.
-Libby voluneers to go with Michael into the jungle. Likely she wanted to examine his obvious mental instability, unfortunately she got to see it first hand when he ran away into the forest to look for Walt.
-While with the Tailies, Sawyer thinks he’s still a prisoner, he wants to escape.
-Sawyer: “It’s every man for himself.”
-Kate tells Sun that she’s sad that she didn’t ge to say goodbye to Sawyer.
-Locke tells Sun that he’s not lost anymore, therefore he isn’t angry.
-Ana Lucia appears to be the same kind of leader as Jack, in that they’re anal and secretive. But the difference is that she delegates authority, she doesn’t try to do everything herself.
-Eko’s such a nice guy, he goes with Jin after Michael for no other reason than because he likes to help. Unfortunately this means that Ana Lucia’s anger problems go on unchecked while he’s gone, and poor Sawyer feels the brunt of her anger.
-I love it when Jin and Eko are travelling through the jungle, the two most lethal characters, physically. And also the two worst communicators.
-Jin wipes the floor with Ana Lucia and Bernard with his fishing skills.
-Ewww Jin found Goodwin’s dead body, that means he was left to rot there even after Juliet finds it. Surely she could have found a way to bury it or something. And what about his wife, was she so bitter that she didn’t care what happened to his corpse, actually that’s dumb question, she probably is that bitter.
-Why would Sun choose to wear white pants on the island? Dangerous.
-Sun has a rough time in her flashbacks. She falls for a guy she is matched with by her parents, but he is in love with someone else. Ironically it is the guy she ends up cheating on Jin with.
-Is there a chance that they were trying to hook up Libby and Michael? That really didn’t work out.
-You’ll notice that most of Michael’s outrageous behavior occured offscrean in this episode. I think they were trying to shield us, the viewer, from it.
Flashbacks (what we knew then):
Flashforwards (what we know now):
-We see The Others walking through the forest in this episode. All we see is their very dirty feet, and how stealthily they can travel around. The last person in the lines was obviously a child, because he/she was carrying a teddybear. I seriously doubt that was Walt, that’s what I thought before, but it makes no sense now. That scene mostly reminds me of Peter Pan, obviously the kid is the youngest who was always carrying his teddybear around with him. I don’t think this scene says much about The Others. They are very stealthy, but the dirt and rags are costumes.
