Jin and Sun get something to do
Big reveal tonight: Locke needs to bring all the candidates off the island. Guess he can't kill them and can't let them stay to replace Jacob, so taking them with him is the alternative.
I'm kind of liking Widmore, freaky as that is. Maybe it's the voice. Great voice. And the other big reveal of the night, that everything they know and love with "cease to be" if Smokey leaves the island - what's that mean? That the world ceases to be? Or that another timeline takes over? At least Widmore seems to pretty much know what he's up against and what he's supposed to do which makes a nice change.
Also: Jin is buff. Those arms... wow. Guy has been working out while he was in Dharma! And very cool to see old Radzinski (killer of Charlie) back, even though he had two eyes now (until the very end at least).
Very glad to see Desmond back. Now why the hell is he back though? Is he a candidate? Or just sufficiently time-jumping to be of use somehow?
Widmore's presence makes me really wonder. I initially thought he might be allied with Smokey, but now it seems that's not true. He used to be leader of the Others, then got booted... but obviously never gave up on finding the island again. So was he some kind of alternate plan Jacob had? Or did he end up making up his own plan when he was kicked off? And what role did Faraday and his mom play in all of this?
Finally: someone for the love of all that is holy get that DAMN HAIR off Claire's head. That thing bugs me more than Kate right now. Just get it off her. Pretend she has a hair cut, finds some conditioner, braids her hair... whatever. Just let that thing go. Release it into the wild.
