More importantly, the smoke monster made an appearance, and we learned that the Others'
So John Locke has apparently joined the Others now, that'll be fun to keep an eye on, but they will keep us in suspense a little while longer on that, until, I'm guessing, we find out the Sawyer from our Sawyer's past is none other than Locke's dad.
Speaking of Sawyer, that was some great stuff with him this week. My guess is he settles into his leader role nicely, probably just as Dr. Jack saunters back into camp. Amazingly, that's going to happen next week; no waiting for that. Maybe this means that the pointless episodes are over now.
The last little thing I'm liking is what's going on with Sun. After Charlie told her the truth, she has become completely angry with Sawyer. Remember earlier this season she killed one of the Others, but it was probably justified in her mind in part because of what she thought they had done to her. She has now found out they did nothing to her, and is therefore blaming Sawyer for turning her into a killer.
Until Next Time, hopefully the see-saw, Jekyll and Hyde, good one week bad the next, time is over and LOST can return to the strong show it once was and clearly is still capable of being.
