LOST: BACK ON TRACK



The last two episodes of LOST have been much improved. They have returned to the formula that made LOST a hit for the first two seasons. A mix of answers and new questions, no new characters suddenly appearing from nowhere and juicy flashbacks have me on the edge of my seat.

Click Read More for discussion that includes spoiler information from the last two weeks.
Last week found Kate and Juliet handcuffed together in the jungle, apparently abandoned there by the Others. After rescuing Jack and Sayid, and realizing that Locke had joined the Others, they began their journey back towards the camp. Kate flashbacks linked her to Sawyer through his jilted lover, Cassidy. It was an interesting episode and it is definitely setting the stage for further conflict between the survivors. Jack’s trust of Juliet is causing Kate and Sayid to question his judgment.

This week was amazing. An offhand remark from Juliet to Jack indicating that she handcuffed herself to Kate and dragged her into the jungle and lied to her about it calls Jack’s loyalties into question… at least for me. The twisted ending that showed us that Juliet is infiltrating the survivors’ camp to spy for Ben, and that they purposely made Claire sick (that they have implanted her with something that gives them that power!) was a great twist. But the question in my mind still remains: Does Jack know that Juliet is there for the Others? Is he protecting her for them? Does he have another agenda? And WHY?

I don’t know the answers, but I am loving the questions….

I used to watch lost but am terribly good at missing an episode and don't have multichannel so can't get the repeat ... desperate housewives I do normally catch ... my current favourite is ugy betty I think it is hilarious and unlike with lost I CAN actually follow the plot!!

(ALL the best TV over here is currently American. ALL of it.)

I'm really getting back into it too.

Love that Juliet. Not flashy but wholesome, real looking. I also like her wide closed mouth smile; kinda Mona Lisa like.

Ha. I should be her publicist.

Anyway, it's worth watching again.

A lot of things came clear over the last two weeks - especially the background stuff about Juliete, Ben and the situation with the 'others' (submarine, etc) ... I think Jack is not in on anything devious with Juliete - she is obviously getting info for Ben - in fact I think Jack's 'lust' for Juliete is clouding his judgement.

but, leftdog... what about when she commented to him that she dragged Kate into the jungle, handcuffed her and lied about it? Jack didn't even question that...

I'm loving LOST lately. Give me a conspiracy theory and I'm happy.
