In this episode we learn of Locke's inauspicious beginnings. Emily seems reasonably sane for a rebellious teen, I wonder how she loses her marbles and ends up at Santa Rosa? Perhaps Mommie Dearest gets wayward Emily a lobotomy to settle her down, as was popular back then. Think...Francis Farmer or a recently deceased Kennedy daughter. :-(
The Three Stooges are on their way to Jacob's house! This was so hilarious, and I half expected Ben to knock John's and Hurley's heads together or twist their noses like Moe would have. Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk!
Who wants to see a full-blown Keamy vs. Sayid smack-down after giving us a little tease of one in this episode?! Too bad Sayid is leaving the island.
Richard gets very ticked off at John's choice in the test. Is it because Johnny Rebel is not nearly ready to take orders as second in command to Jacob on the island? Perhaps Richard already sees the Loose-Cannon-Locke that we know so well.
Teen-aged John has serious Nerd Syndrome, and hates jocks while also wanting to be one. Maybe that's why he doesn't like Jack, because he represents the kind of pretty boy jock that John has always been jealous of. Too bad John doesn't realize that a guy can be popular and science-y.
TPTB want us to look forward to John coming face to face with Abaddon again for payback time. But why did Abaddon repeat the pep talk that the young therapist gave Locke back in the Tallahassee episode? Strange.
"It's clobberin' time!!!!!!" (I finally give in and reference the Fantastic Four like everyone else has)
Is Dez wimping out on responsibility again, or is he justified in not helping Sayid get back to the others on the island? I'm kind of disappointed in our brothuh here I think, it just felt lame to me. Let me know if I'm wrong.
Cue "The Ride of the Valkyries" for Sayid! I bet that he loves the smell of zodiak fuel in the morning. Godspeed, Sayid!
