6.4 The Substitute
I finally got to watch this episode today. I love a Locke episode. In this case, a Locke/NotLocke episode. A lot more of the "chance" encounters of our Lostees off Island in the alternate universe.
I thought that alternate Locke would be happy and he was in the way that he was with Helen, but his bad luck with the van mechanism and his "douche" boss was in kind with the old Locke. I kind of wish he did call Jack and maybe he will somehow. I love him and Helen together and I hope we get to see them get married.
Hurley the CEO was cool even with the mutton chop sideburns. He's so lucky that Locke's van stops just short of scratching his hummer.
I want John Locke as my substitute teacher. Ben Linus too. I loved that bit. Change the filters, people!
On Island, Richard whose always been calm and in control, was freaking out and terrified. That freaks me out. I wish Sawyer went with him. I liked him trying to help but then running for his life.
Who was the kid? He looked a lot like Jacob to me. Who did he mean by him, when he said, "You know the rules, you can't kill him". Did he mean Sawyer? Richard? Jacob?
Ilana seems to know a lot, yet no one asks her a lot of questions, as usual. I almost cried when they buried John. It was so sad. No one had anything to say except for Ben. "He was a better man than I'll ever be, and I'm sorry I murdered him" I wonder if he meant that. Frank with the one-liners, "Weirdest funeral I've ever been to".
I liked how Sawyer, even drunk, knew it wasn't really Locke. I'd like to think that Sawyer, the slick conman that he is, won't be duped by NotLocke. He's gone for Mr. Ford when he's most vulnerable but I still think he's not that stupid. The whole scene with the ladder/cliff was nerve wracking. I hate scenes like that, make me nervous.
So Jacob had another secret crib in the cliff. I think NotLocke throwing the white rock was symbolic. He feel's he's defeated Jacob. We'll see. So the original List is shown.
The numbers are back in play. Kate Austen isn't on the ceiling? I saw Goodspeed up there!
Now NotLocke gives James 3 choices. It's obvious he wants him to pick # 3.
1) Just do nothing and watch from the sidelines
2) Take over Jacob's job as the Island protector from nothing.
3) Go home with NotLocke. Where's home?!
It seems for now that Sawyer's chosen going home.
I can't wait for more Locke and I really want to see how Desmond plays into all of this. What about Widmore....What was his convo with Sun about? Will we see Daniel again? I hope so, he was great!
I'm so glad I have just one day till the next episode!
