Don’t Whizz on the Electric Fence

When I was in high school, my father had two dogs. To keep them in the yard, we got one of those invisible fence things. A neigobor wanted to get one for his dogs, but was curious as to how powerful it was. So after talking with my father, he took one of the dog’s collars, held the metal part in his hand and walked “through” the fence. He jumped, shouted, and said it was a big mistake.

With that in mind, I really don’t blame Locke for what he did tonight.

I thought tonight’s episode of Lost was really good–for many reasons, it reminded me of a season one episode- with most of the action taking place at the beach.

We got some weird information out of Patchy, that I’m sure after being twisted some way or another, is true. We got another bit of information linking two of the main characters. And most importantly, even though it was teased, we did not get Jackass Charlie (which is where I thought they were going with the whole Claire-Charlie conflict).

And to top it all off, I really, really liked the ending, with Claire’s note and the Quarterback Jack reveal.

Some other individual thoughts:

-They’ve been on the island 80 or so days. That puts them in mid-December. Am I wrong in thinking this season’s season finale will be a very special Lost Christmas episode?

-So Claire was involved in a (somewhat) fatal car accident. Is there a woman on this show who hasn’t killed someone else? Come to think of it, have any of the main characters NOT killed anyone else? Jin? Hurley? (kinda?) Waaaaaalt? Libby?

-If Claire keeps dropping her kid off with Sun and Jin that kid will know more Korean than it does English. Come to think of it, I’m really curious to see what that kid will sound like surrounded by Koreans, Americans, Austrailians, the English, a Scot and a Redneck.

-I think Desmond only told Charlie he was going to die so that he’d have someone to hang out with.

-It’s really appropriate to have a guy with one eye telling other people they’re flawed, don’t you think?

-When Christian was talking about “hope and guilt,” was he talking about Jack? Come to think of it, I have a feeling he’s still alive, and Jack and Claire are going to find out eventually. Or his body will be in a tree and Jack and Claire will find out that way.

Your thoughts?
