Where the hell have you been? Do you know what time it is? I've been WORRIED SICK

1. In the reunion scene, it was touching to see Hurley introduce Sayid to his mother, since he had no family to greet. It was hilarious to see Jack completely fail to do the same for Kate.
2. YESSSSSS the Others are finally back after being sidelined all season.
3. Desmond certainly seems friendly with the freighter crew now. I guess they’re all a little spooked by their captain’s murder and need a burly, rugged Scotsman to take the lead. Also the boat’s pilot had a hilariously terrible Australian accent.
4. The explosives on the freighter are clearly triggered by the thing on Keamy’s arm. I’ve got a really bad feeling about Jin, Michael and Desmond now. I don’t care about Jin and Michael, especially since their deaths have been heavily foreshadowed, but Desmond is one of my favourite characters, and I want to see him get caught up in Ben’s plot to kill Penny.
5. Jin: “I told you I would get you off this island.” You didn’t do shit, Jin. Sayid and Daniel did.
6. Hey, I got a question for the press conference: how the fuck did the survivors supposedly end up in the Lesser Sunda Islands, considering that they’re about five thousand kilometres away from 815’s flight path? That’s like a plane disappearing enroute from New York to London, but finding the wreckage and survivors floating in the Gulf of Mexico. Even flying off-course for a couple of hours can’t explain it, since there’s no way it wouldn’t be picked up by air traffic observers in Australia and Indonesia. It’s basically an awful cover story and the fact that nobody questions it makes me assume it’s a fuck-up on the writer’s part. Way to go, writers.
7. Why would Jack’s family wait about seven months to hold Christian’s funeral?
8. So did Locke just walk out of the cabin all like “Seeya later Claire?” I guess that’s the kind of thing that idiot would do.
9. Throughout this entire season, the amount of crash survivors seems to have shrunk to less than 20, for both Jack and Locke’s group combined, including all main characters. What’s up with that?
