I should start off apologizing for last night's depressing post. Honestly, I don't know what got into me. It's like even thinking about drinking a bottle of wine tricked my mind into thinking that I already drank one and then all mayhem broke loose.
But yeah, it was so bad that I spent the better half of the night crying (for no apparent reason) and then thinking up ultra-cynical future posts, with titles such as: "Love is an Illusion", "Are We Ever Happy?" and "Lies We Tell Ourselves."
Then I woke up this morning and thought "what the fuck was I going on about?" Sure, I'm not exactly bounding about with a smile on my face, but it's nothing like last night. Or was that because I did one of those things that when you wake up, you can't remember what you were upset about, until later on in the day when you have had more time to think about it? Or maybe it's just PMS.
Time will tell.
On to Lost!
Last nights episode was one of the best I have seen in a LONG time. I don't know how they did it, but they managed to pack so much info and turning points into one hour (not even, with commercials). Here are the highlights:
*Sun is an adulturess whore. Yes, she had an ongoing affair with that bald dude and yes, it seems like the baby is probably his.
*Sun's daddy walked in on them NEKKID.
*Jin was asked to take a hit out on the bald guy, without knowing why. Oh, but Sun's daddy knows and he's the one who told Jin to kill him "because of family honor."
*Jin couldn't do it at the last minute but then bald guy took matters into his own hands and jumped out of a high rise window. So, in the end, bald guy dead on Jin's car, Sun feels ashamed about being a whore and Jin has no clue.
*Sayid and Jin hatch a stupid plan which places them on the beach with guns and Sun alone in the boat. Guess who comes aboard the boat? The Others. And guess who finds Sun with a gun in her hand? Some Other chick. And what does the Other chick say:
"We are not the enemy Sun. Put down the gun. I know you Sun (insert Korean last name here). I know all about you, and I know you aren't a killer."
And what does Sun do? Shoots the chick right in the chest! Whoooo go Sun! Being pregnant sure changes a person.
*Oh right and then Sun is found out and she jumps off the boat and swims to Jin and it's all good. And poor Jin, has no clue. STILL. What's he gonna say when the baby comes out bald and Korean? Oh. wait.
*Ah and in the most sensational point of the night, Sawyer risked getting tazered at the slave labour camp by kissing Kate. She tastes like strawberries and he tastes like fish biscuits. And of course, he got tazered. But not before he got hold of an AK-47 and threatened to blow everyone away. But then that Juliet chick threatened to kill Kate so he had no choice but give up. Which is when he got tazered.
*Danielle's daughter (Alex) wants her dress back from Kate.
*Henry Gale is really Ben Linus or something and he has been living on the island all his life. They do have contact with the outside world, and the Others ARE able to leave the island and so he was able to tell Jack that George W Bush has since been re-elected and that the Boston Red Sox won the World Series. Which Jack did not believe until Ben showed it to him on the TV. That was probably the most poignant moment of the show. Jack realizing that if he does as Ben asks (when the time is right, he says) Jack will be able to go home. And of course, proof that the Others can in fact leave. So why the hell are they still there?
On a final note, the preview for next week reveals another hell of episode. Not only will we find out what the hell happened to Eko, Locke and every other person (remember them?) on the island, BUT it appears that the hatch blast blew off Desmond's pants. So YAY for Nekkid Desmond!
Tune in next week.
