Off the Island
Hmm, Christian, as usual, is a mystery. Once he showed up the Afterlife started to break apart. I guess once he appeared Jack had flashed and there was no mystery left. So Christian, who is apparently more aware than anyone else, stopped pretending that it was real and lifted the veil. I guess he never flashed… I don’t know how to explain this guy.
-I’ve never laughed at Christian’s name. I got the weirdness of it, but it didn’t really hit me until Kate found it hilarious.
-The sets in this episode were very confusing. I didn’t see the difference between the Concert area and the Church area until my second watch.
-When Christian appeared it was one of the biggest WTF moments. Partway through this episode I wasn’t sure if they were even going to be able to pull off a twist like that. But they did, and my hat is off to them.
-I’m glad Jacob wasn’t involved with the Afterlife. That would have been too easy.
I’m also glad no one else did it. It looked like it was going to be Desmond, but that would have been weird. It also would have been odd if Locke had done it or Jack had suddenly understood everything.
It’s better that they left Christian fill that role.
