Warning: This post may contain spoilers. If this week's
episode of Lost is sitting, unwatched, on your TiVo,
this would be a good time to scroll down to the next post.
If it's 9:00 on Wednesday night, you can bet Mr. ThirtyWhat and I are watchin' Lost. And last night, I was utterly disgusted. Now, I'm not saying I want Charlie dead ... but what I am saying is that I want some closure and a few answers ... not an entirely new, unknown character parachuting in.
Last Wednesday, they had me hook, line and sinker. I mean, the end of last week's episode was phenomenal. Benry telling Juliet he'd see her in a week? Oh yeah, I was so on board.
But an entire Desmond back story just to show us how he met Penny? Common ... the plot line was basically the answer to the running joke, "Why does Desmond call everyone 'Brutha'?" Because he was a brother? Um ... stretch much?
And furthermore, while I'm ranting ... Christianity is based on forgiveness. So I'm to believe that after the monastery caught Desmond nipping at the hootch one time that they fired him? I mean, sure ... they bottled some pricey Jesus juice ... but it wasn't Clos du Mesnil champagne.
On that same note ... last time we talked about Lost, one of the comments mentioned Ms. Hawking, the creepy jeweler who told Desmond that pressing the button was the only great thing he would ever do in his life.
Well, if you looked closely ... she made an appearance last night. This photoshopped nightmare could be seen on Brother Campbell's desk:
Neat? Yes ... but for the love of Sonic Cherry Cokes ... could we just get one mystery solved before we end this season? Oh, and one more thought ... why did Bernard have a Phil Collins tape ... and more importantly what the hell was he playing it on?
