To me, it seemed like last week was more of a finale than last night! I felt closure with Exodus part I, but I am certainly dying to know a hundred more things after part II!! So we got the best of both worlds with that sentimental episode last week, and the cliffhanger-ridden episode last night! I'm not at all disappointed, for those who are keeping score.
I had a fit when Arzt blew up...initially from being totally and completely shocked, and then from being shocked that I had been so totally and completely shocked!
When I saw the girl on the boat last night, I immediately thought THAT'S ALEX, followed by the feeling that the rest of the men with her must have been children of the island's previous generations of survivors, all grown up... all of them having been specially chosen by the 'island' for some sort of...I don't know...harvesting of their special abilities, either for creating a SUPERPOWER by joining them together, or for using them as a power source for the 'island'.
Last night was a freakin cornucopia of 'the numbers', wasn't it? I couldn't help but feel that the producers saw that wacky list someone posted awhile back and thought they'd give us a little more to chew on!
Also... up until last night, there was a consistent theme of "he/she wasn't supposed to be on that flight" but the whole Jin thing threw me off. It seems like he was going to stick to his original travel plans, and then disappear in California. Hurley stayed on-theme, by pushing so hard to get on the flight he seemed destined to miss. Charlie? Made the flight even though he was running late, but I think he was returning earlier than he originally expected because of Liam's refusal to sign up for the tour. Any others you can think of?
