All I got to say is I freaking called it. Time jumping, people. I called it weeks ago. This episode was AWESOME! Let's look back...............
- Thank you Lost Gods, for not killing my Desmond. Thanks to a Tivo malfunction, I missed the first 2 minutes but I came to see he had some kind of mid-air memory loss freak-out. I DON'T KNOW YOU, BROTHA! Okay, so let's see, Dezzie got blown up some by the hatch explosion and started seeing visions of the future and now he can jump through time. Sweet. Was he really jumping when he saw those visions or were they just visions? Does that mean that Hurley and Locke and Walt are also able to time jump? Methinks yes. That's how Walt can be on the island when he really isn't or why the cabin is sometimes there and sometimes not. They must be jumping somehow but they don't seem to suffer the same effects. Maybe it's because they all had their constant already. But who and what? Since they were all there when the button was stopped and the sky went purple, are they all full enough of radiation now to start having "experiences?" Who left the 3-toed statue? Is the island full of random things from random times because it makes you bop around? Polar bear carcass found on an archaeological dig in the present time and yet we just saw that polar bear alive on the island less than 6 months prior? Maybe the polar bear was like a giant Eloise and it died on that side of time.
-There really is a freighter and there really is an "off the island". And how about Sayid going all MacGuyver and jacking up that phone. He's really handy. BUT..who are they working for? Penelope's father? Hanso? How did Penelope know about the island? She only spoke to Charlie for a second before he was sucked to bits. Did she trace the call?
- That auction was VERY interesting, no? The Black Rock log being auctioned off by Hanso and Penny's father buying it? Are we going to finally get an explanation as to how that thing got in the middle of the island. Are we going to ever find out what Hanso is REALLY about and what the real deal is with the Dharma project? They kinda abandoned all that stuff but we still don't know anything major about what they were there to do.
My theory is that Ben can do this time jumping quite well and that's why he is so sought after. Ben must hold whatever powers these are and all these men are trying to get him and his secrets. This is all getting really massive and wacky and I hope that the producers don't' screw it up. I should be glad we got to see all this stuff because it rocked, but it also, as per usual, posed WAY more questions than it answered. Well played, Lost. I'm confused and my mind hurts.
