Lost - "What Kate Does"

Well, the latest snowstorm (supposedly 12 to 18 inches) has started as I get this written up. Of course, as long as the power stays on, that makes things perfect for television watching. Not that I really need a reason, as you know. I was going to write up the latest American Idol Hollywood Week with Ellen DeGeneres starting her judge reign. But I don't have much to say about it. Eh.

Onto to tonight's show. I remain a tad lost. I'm glad I'm not doing in-depth review/recaps of the show anymore. True Lost geeks would rip me apart. Okay, here's my dilemma:

After last week, I thought that perhaps Sayid had been taken over by the dead/undead Jacob. I thought by him telling Hurley to take Sayid to the temple that the folks there were FoJ. That would be Friends of Jacob, natch. Hmmm ... so they try to save him, it doesn't seem to work, then it works. So this week they torture him, determine he failed (although they told him he passed), and try to poison him. What does it all mean? Jacob didn't enter his body, but someone else? We already know the Jacob's archenemy has taken over Locke's body.

Sawyer's actions seemed very typical Sawyer. I would have liked to have heard more from the black armed guy who escorted Jin and Kate as they went after Sawyer. So, Danielle has been dead for years and Kate knows the one "escort," or should know him.

The Kate/Claire alternate universe (whatever!) storyline was interesting. I'm sure they will meet up again. I'm really not sure what to say about it. Kate does have a way about her, though. She's right that she can be very convincing. Yet she never comes across as really evil.

Your thoughts on tonight's episode?

But do we really know that Locke is the man-in-black? All we really know for certain is that this Locke claims to be the smoke monster nothing has ever been said confirming "m-i-b" as "smoke m". Or did I miss something somewhere?

OMG, I can't believe you didn't have a million comments Jackie. I loved this episode, as confusing as it still was. The fact that Juliette's last words were "It worked" as a statement to Sawyer..how come no one is talking about this? It worked because we can see the alternate players get off the plane and now are watching their lives play out in 2007 vs their lives on the Island in 2004. Do I understand this correctly?

But then, why a I asking you guys... you're as confused as I am, right?

I believe that Sayid 'caught' the mib when he was shot and took it in with him to the Temple... now the powers to be in there know they have to get rid of him.

Seeing Claire again on the Island was weird. I wish she hadn't shot the tall black guy when saving Jin. I think he might have been a good guy to have around.

What's next?

I think that all of us are "lost" in one way or the other.

The fact that Kate went back for Claire shows that she is not as heartless as she lets people think.

I came on line last night, but no one was there. Since I didn't want to talk to myself I left.

I have thought ever since Kate gave Aaron away, she was meant to be his mother and it would come back to that.

Sayid must be infected with the black smoke, which has to be part of Jocab's nemesis. Claire and Christian must also be part of the same thing.

The guy in charge of the new Others, I think has been there for hundreds of years. He was probably on that ship Jacob and Bad guy was watching coming in on the shore.
