POPTARTS WILL NOT STOP HIM HE IS RELENTLESS

1. Still adjusting to the new format of the show. Even after the flashforwards in Season 4 it’s incredibly weird to see the characters walking around the streets of LA instead of traipsing through the jungle.

2. Neil looks like a cross between Tim Roth and Steve Buscemi… man, Reservoir Dogs was a great movie. Also, Neil getting killed was funny.

3. I know that at this stage Jack has probably accepted that Ben will never, ever tell him anything – but Juliet is a different story. Now would really be a great time for Sawyer to sit her down and say, “Look, you say you’re on our side, and now we’re stuck together in a whole new bag of snakes, so would you mind telling me WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THIS ISLAND?!”

4. By far the most interesting thing that happened this episode was the fire-arrow attack (which presumably came from the Hostiles) and the British soldiers. I like the idea of Sawyer & co jumping back and forth to different periods of the island’s history and learning about it.

5. Speaking of which, it still feels like the character balance is a little off. There are too many people off-island, and all we have left on-island are Sawyer, Locke, Juliet (a fish firmly out of Season 3’s water), some extras and the Johnny come-latelies from the freighter, of whom Daniel is the only interesting one. Locke reuniting with the group at the end was a step in the right direction, but it still feels like they should have left one more main cast member behind on the island.

6. Didn’t Jack used to drive a much newer jeep?

7. “And we found some hatches and there was a button you had to push every 108 minutes or… well… I was never really clear on that…”

8. Hurley fleeing Ben and turning himself over to the cops was great, as was Ben standing in the doorway watching him get arrested. Had one of the police glanced over and pointed a flashlight at him, I’m sure he would have hissed like a cat and vanished into the darkness.

9. I only just realised that the old lady at the end was Desmond’s time-travel mentor, not the Others’ “judge” from Season 3 who told Jack about his tattoos. That’s odd.
