Just as good as last weeks.

Interesting to the snowglobe isn't completely solid...

So, minutia experts ... have we ever seen parachute girl before, anywhere? I'm blank.

Parachute girl is new. Presumably, she's from the arctic station last seen in the season 2 finale. The copy of Catch-22 she had in her backpack was in Portugese, which would match her to the Brazillians in the station. So Penny must have sent her to find Desmond after they picked up the Swan's magnetic pulse.

I really liked this episode. I'm getting a feeling that they have a grand plan for Desmond and this time travelling plot. And that's a relief. Of course, the big Easter egg was the picture on the monk's desk of him and the jewelry store lady from Desmond's time travel flashback. Not quite sure what to make of that yet. But the parachute girl is a significant development in the show. And seeing Desmond, Charlie, Jin and Hurley take center stage is always a nice thing. I know it's been a tough task and an issue for a lot of fans, but I think by the end of the season we will find that all of the characters' screen time has been pretty well balanced. Well, maybe excluding Jack.

The only way today's episode is interesting is if saving Chahlie somehow caused Desmond's reality to shift so that the parachute girl is the "Penny" in this version of his life. Like if he held up the photo at the very end, instead of Penny, it was parachute girl standing next to him. That would have been great. Still could happen. It won't. But it could have.

I mean I realize that it's important to show that Desmond ALMOST let Chahlie die for the wrong girl, but still.

Come on. Show of hands. When they he the helmet off, how many of you said, "SANJAYA?!"

Anyway, let's face it - slow lingering shots of, E.L. getting dressed made this the single greatest episode of Lost ever. Bravo.

I'd make her a mix tape. For damn sure.

Here's my thing:

If he had let Charlie die, still found the parachuter and it still wasn't Penny it would have been a great episode. The LOST Deadpoolers would have had a stroke. Nobodies safe! Leave up to Charlie to take his foot off the Land Mine.

I don't think the parachuter would've been Penny anyway, let's face it, if you're the head of your daddy's mammoth Organization you send the cannon fodder out to find your long lost boyfriend and not yourself.

TV Guide's resident Mr. Cool Ausellio spilled how many deaths we can expect before the end of the season. It's surprisingly high. If anyone wants to know the number, PM me. I obviously don't have names, and wouldn't want them either. What fun is that?

Are we watching the same show?

One hour wasted on answering two questions:
  • Why does Desmond call everyone "brother"?
  • What happens to AI castoffs the next day?
At this point do we really need to see that Desmond is a flawed person? Or that Kate's all like y'know so confused about Jack? (Sweetheart, being the island's cage fellatrix may have put the sterilized nail in that Prince Albert. Disinfect and move on.)

But if that wasn't bad enough, sweet Jesus, they introduce new characters. Desmond was ... engaged!

O Frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!


To spend half an episode on character that's already been dealt with two seasons ago is pretty strong evidence that the show is treading water.

Any bets on "Sanjaya" not being all that forthcoming with infomation next week?

That's not very romantic. Where's the sacrifice? Where's the consequences? Not true love, IMO.

Did they give any clue of Desmond's psycic powers back in season 2? I don't recall them mentioning it or even hinting at it. Seems almost made up for the sake of getting him involved in the story.

If you look back at Desmond's flashes, you see Penny facing him on the island. There's reason to believe he did change the future by helping Charlie.
