Not much to say about this week’s episode, which was decent but a bit filler-y for my tastes. My favorite Sawyer episodes are the ones that con the audience (i.e., me), so I was a wee bit disappointed that Recon was so straightforward. On the other hand — Miles and James are cops now! Charlotte and James totally bone in the alter-verse! I really dug Evangeline Lilly’s acting for once! Un-Locke may or may not have a crazy mommy! And Widmore’s doing… well, actually, I have no idea what he’s doing. But, still: Widmore! In other words, in a not-totally-spectacular episode, a lot of fun moments shone through.
Now onto the questions!
Question 1: Like the B-story in last week’s episode, Recon‘s alt-plot seemed like a pilot to a spin-off series. Which of the following Lost spin-offs would you most like to watch on a regular basis? Hangin’ With Dr. Linus? Straume & Twang (my name for USA’s new quirky cop show, starring Miles Straume & James Ford)? The Good Shephard (a new Everwood-type show about a big-city doctor with daddy issues who learns about faith and family after moving to Provo, Utah)? [Insert your own punny Kate- or Locke-based show here]?
Question 2: So, are we going to talk Un-Locke’s word for it on his mommy issues or what? Is he talking about real-Locke’s crazy mom, or is he talking about someone else? Tawaret, mayhaps?
Speaking of crazy mommies…
Question 3: What are we thinking about Claire now? Is she crazy-evil or just crazy-crazy? Did the “infection” make her go nutso, or did the supposed Aaron-napping do it? And can she ever turn back to the light side?
Question 4: Who’s Sawyer?
See you next week.
