Glad there's actually plane wreckage... now how did Jack, Kate, and Hurley get separated from it?
And Locke is alive / resurrected / whatevered now that they're BAAAAAAAACK on the Island. Not a surprise. But welcome.
ABC just broke its own rule about the length of acts by having, including the "Previously on" section be under 4m30s. They have this rule because the longest commercial pod they'll air is 4m30s, and they never want any section or the show to be shorter than a commercial pod. But, hey, this is Lost. "The rules" don't apply (and it's a silly rule, anyway... it's always bothered me that you can't do a 1 or 2 page teaser on an ABC show and cut to commercial when it feels right for the story).
So turning the frozen donkey wheel sends you to Tunisia all the time? Does Locke no longer have use of his legs (even if the bone is sticking out of one) because he's off-Island?
I want to say "OMG, the terrorists have Locke" but that would be a terribly inappropriate thing to say, right?
Okay, so the format is now on-Island opening with Ajira 316 people, then flashback for the 'splainy? It's kinda like the first season! Only with more answers instead of character pieces! And space-time file charts!
CHARLES WIDMORE! WAS A LEADER OF THE OTHERS! AND TURNED THE DONKEY WHEEL!
LOCKE ASKED CHARLES WIDMORE THE QUESTION "WHY?" AND CHARLES KIND OF SORT OF ACTUALLY GAVE AN ANSWER. MORE IMPORTANTLY, A CHARACTER ON THIS SHOW ASKED THE QUESTION "WHY?"!!!!
Did anyone else know this episode was 66 minutes long?
It's 1:40am, I'm shutting up (even though I'm certain there's going to be so much SQUEE) so Ican watch tonight and then get some sleep.
