the flash sideways seem to be hammering home the point that even though all the people who died because of the plane crash are now ALIVE, everything is not better for most people. locke can't walk, claire has nowhere to go, charlie is in jail, kate is a
MEAN BOSS is back, but he was right to fire locke. he used company money to fund a personal trip to australia. bad locke!
my favorite part of the episode was the lack of kate's name on the cave wall (that, and the fact that sawyer is listening to search and destroy in the wreck of his old house). i take this to mean that kate is not important and therefore should be hit by a bus that is driven by juliet's ghost. finally, a return of the numbers. supplementary material to the show allegedly explains the number thing. will they ever do that ON THE SHOW?
ben got off the island safely, I wonder if anyone was actually killed in the nuclear blast? i am now remembering how richard said that ben would be different from then on, changed by being brought back to life, we now know by the magical pool of water. so did claire die, is that why she is now changed, and what about rousseau's people?
I am glad that they are not waiting until the last couple of episodes to explain things. I am finally getting excited about this season.
