LOST Thoughts: Season 6, Episode 2 "What Kate Does"  
I bet this episode focuses on Kate. Kate and Clay-uh. You think??

Dogen sure likes that thing on the chain around his neck. Ankh, perhaps?

Gotta like these appearances of Arzt. Smart move by the taxi driver to run away. I'm assuming that's not the last we'll see of Claire and Kate together.

I'm not too sure that Sawyer knows where he's going, but it's away from here. Will he end up joining the side of Man-In-Locke? Quite possible. There's a lot of different sides here at this point.

It's important that Sawyer gets back here safely, because he's on that list that was in the ankh, because he's one of the people that Jacob touched. At least, that's my theory. The problem with that theory is it doesn't explain why they keep Miles around because they didn't say Miles's name.

I'm guessing they're doing some sort of magic/torture to make sure that Sayid isn't actually a dead person reanimated by the ManInBlack and thus somehow connected to (or possessed by) the Man In Black. But they lied about the result. Hmmm…

Pretty good job by Kate to find Claire. She's quite a tracker, she is.

Aldo is the Frogurt of the Others.

Sayid was seeming a little wimpy - is that a clue it's not really Sayid? Old Sayid would have kicked the butt of everyone in that room. Twice.

The "infection" is probably something to do with the ManInBlack, and with the non-clear water in the temple.

So the LOSTies are all getting divided, and not sure who to trust or what to do.

Is the couple going to be anyone special? No. There surely had to be some sort of twist with the adoption. Apparently in this timeline, Kate will help Claire deliver the baby as well.

Othertown! Good to see it *not* at the bottom of the ocean. I wonder what was in the shoebox. Oh, a wedding ring.

It's Ethan Rom! Doctor Goodspeed? Really? How in the heck is he off the island? Oh wait, the island was evacuated, then the bomb blew, and so the Goodspeed mom (and Ethan) couldn't return.

So there was poison in the pill. Despite what Jacob's list said, he was going to kill Sayid? Or perhaps try to kill the "infection" in Sayid.

This is like a first season episode - questions are popping up left and right. I'm not too sure how much I'm liking that aspect. It's time to start answering some things.

That is one morose Sawyer.

Sayid is "claimed", I assume by the ManInBlack. And by "sister" I assume they mean Claire.

And speaking of Claire!

Well, the twist at the ending was certainly fun but I had the sense that something was coming involving Claire. Actually, I thought she was the one who grabbed Jin. So she's the new Rousseau - setting traps, shooting people with old rifles, etc.

OK, fun twist at the end. But I felt a little let down by this episode. It seemed like old-school first-couple-seasons LOST: cryptic conversations, slow-moving plot, incomplete revelations, and a big end reveal/twist. But I want more than that now. More! Time to speed it up gents - only 13 episodes left!

Huh. I guess I'm in the minority on this ep. Aside from focusing on Kate, I really enjoyed a lot of it. I totally love that Sickness (I'm guessing that's what they were talking about) is back. And I love the twist with Claire and everything with Ethan. (Good call on him being evacuated, BTW. I didn't consider that...)

Actually, overall I liked the episode. But I'm in the mode where I'm saying "folks, its season 6, let's see some threads start drawing together towards a solution. Also, let's see some evolution to the characters where they don't let open questions hang as much." The lack of logical followup is always something that's driven me crazy about LOST...
