So now you're a fucking fire warden too huh

This was another episode (like The Economist) in which more happened in the off-island storyline than the on-island storyline, which I don’t necessarily dislike. What I do dislike is episodes that don’t feature either of the two most interesting storylines: Team Awesome solving mysteries on the freighter, and Locke’s continual loss of control over even his own pathetic, deluded spirit quest. Dude cracks me up. Anyway:

1. So, I guess Danielle is dead after all (and Carl but who cares). That’s a shame, because I’d heard she was supposed to have a flashback episode this season. Incidentally, it was quite surprising to see that the mercenaries even¬†bothered to bury them.
2. I still fucking hate Keamy and want to see him get shot in the face. Predicting it will be Sayid who eventually does the honours.
3. Hurley’s quiet confession that he’d been seeing Charlie, and subsequent dire warning, was very spooky, as was Jack seeing his father at the hospital. The cinematography in those night scenes was particularly good.
4. Bernard is becoming a more and more useful survivor, with his leet Morse Code/Novacane skills, which is nice to see. Even if it is only happening because the beach camp is running short of characters.
5. They’re being really slack on the discipline with the actor that plays Jin. Almost overnight, he suddenly has long hair and butch biceps.
6. Hilariously ironic: Sun saying to Jin “They’re not going to help us,” while she and Jin stand around doing jack shit, and Daniel and Charlotte gather medical supplies to save Jack’s life.
7. Jack forcing Kate to watch his surgery when she was so clearly uncomfortable with it was kinda jerky. So was the idea of staying conscious in the first place. God, but he is a stubborn dickhead.
8. I am a MAN with a heart of flint, but Aaron and his stuffed orca still made me “awwwwww.”

A good episode. Not as good as the previous one, due to the lack of the two best storylines, but the flashforward was interesting enough to make up for it.
