I still think that they are setting up Jack as the next Jacob, because it would be a natural logical evolution of the growth of Jack's character. Of course, when does anything on LOST follow logic?
So Jack is wondering who has been appearing as his father. And it's Smokey! Does that mean Smokey was also the Michael that appeared to Hurley? Or is Hurley different because he can talk to dead people.
Why does it have to be all of them? Why? Why, Man In Black?
Everyone is going to the hospital at the same time. How convenient. Jack can fix *everyone* at once!
The fact that Sun said "It's him" (in English!) could mean that Sideways Sun and PlaneCrash Sun are having collisions as well. Which could "explain" why PlaneCrash Sun can only speak English.
If just talking to the Man In Black gets you on his side, well, what else are you supposed to do?
Sawyer! Haven't you learned that telling Hurley a plan, and then saying "keep this a secret", is a guaranteed way to make sure everyone knows?
"Everyone back together again" - I have a feeling this will eventually happen in the Sideways timeline too. Especially now that Sawyer and Miles are looking for Sayid.
Smokey Locke doesn't play these "you have until nightfall" games, because he knows he can take anyone. Anyone!
Sideways Claire! Haven't seen her in a while. Sideways Desmond, get away from Sideways Claire! Don't be mean to her, she's pregnant! Who is the lawyer he's going to see? Ilana! That's a surprise. And what's up with the "looking for you" thing?
Sawyer is setting his "plan" into motion. "Sayid's a zombie, and Claire's nuts". Great summary from Sawyer.
I thought the well was waaaay deeper than that. I'm surprised Desmond survived the head-first plunge into shallow water. Can Desmond convince Sayid to not kill him?
Sideways Sayid has to go, because he killed a few people. I bet it's Sawyer at the door. Actually, it's Miles. Sawyer caught him way too easily.
Claire has abandonment issues. Letting Claire follow you sounds like a bad idea. Jack needed a little better planning than that. Of course Sayid didn't kill Desmond.
Is that Desmond's old sailboat?
Wow, this episode is moving pretty fast!
Sideways Jack and David - maybe we'll learn who Mom is. I bet it's Juliet. Ilana is like *everyone's* lawyer! Oh, Jack was looking for Claire. And of course the phone call was the hospital, and only Jack can deal with Locke and/or Sun. It's tough being the only spinal surgeon in the only hospital in the entire area.
Jack jumping off the boat echoes when Sawyer jumped out of the helicopter. But it's sure a long way back to the island, I'll say that!
Baby is fine. Yay! But I doubt that everything is "really" over for Sidways Sun and Jin.
Sideways Jack's son David is *really* like a mini-Jack. I don't think that leaving David to prowl around the hospital by himself is going to work so well.
Aw. The Jin-Sun moment is finally here. Very touching. I'm really glad the sonic fence wasn't on.
But getting hauled away at gunpoint is what you get for trusting Charles Widmore.
Funny how Smokey saves only Jack. So Jack must be "The Last Recruit". But did Widmore's people really believe bombs could kill SmokeyLocke? And where's Sayid? Or Desmond?
Summary: Things are moving very fast now. I was surprised by Jack leaving the boat, but it makes sense if he feels like he has a role to play and I'm thinking that role could include becoming the new Jacob. But could Jack keep Smokey at bay? I'm intrigued by the actions in the Sideways that are bringing all the LOSTies to the same place (much as the LOSTies are going to the same place in the PlaneCrash timeline). Somehow all of them being in the same place (in two different timelines) is going to be a key to how the story resolves itself. I have my theories, but I'll keep them to myself for now. Next week: LOSTies in jail on Hydra Island, and it looks like SmokeyLocke makes his way over to Hydra Island and wreaks havoc? Or perhaps Widmore's people come to main island, expecting Smokey to be blowed up, and he's not. Never a good thing.
