I liked how this was the first episode in a long time that actually seemed aware of how many different story threads the show is currently juggling, and tried to at least touch on all of them.
All I can say is, thank god for Henry Gale. I dig that guy more and more with each self-satisfied smirk.
Agreed and agreed.
I have been behind for the past month or two, so I finally got caught up over the past week. The Henry Gale character has made season 2. It's such a dynamic story, completely showcasing the boundaries of friend/enemy relationships on the show. And that you know he's bad, but still want to trust what he says. Goddamn, he is so well written.
Hurley's episode was sooo boring and really, as has been said, contrived. Bruce Davison was nice, but even he couldn't save it. Yesterday's was pretty good, though I'd always imagined that they had been a couple for a long, long time. They seem to have the "I've known you forever" kinda relationship. But whatever. It's all pretty good, I'm excited to see what they do with the map, Kate and Jack, etc. And the entire episode, I was wondering where Michael had been for 7 or however many episodes. That's gonna be awesome.
