I really liked this episode. There was plenty of good stuff packed into the hour. Love the look on Sayid's face when he realized Henry was in fact an other. Loved Locke defying Jack. Love the Sawyer/Hurley interaction. The back story on Sayid wasn't spine-tingling, but told us a little more what started the torture thang. Love the Dharma clock red hieroglyphics - very cool! Good writing, good performances.
I really appreciated the emotional complexity of this episode, as well as the (few) answers that we did get. I think that Henry was actually telling the truth; if not all of it, then most of it. I also think I'm the only person on the Fuselage who thinks that.
It was great to see Sayid--I was going to say grow, but really horribly regress as a character, a pattern with Sawyer, Charlie, and even perhaps Locke. I'm looking forward to this...er...relationship with Henry evolve, and I liked seeing Danielle too, crazy as ever.
This may be my favorite ep; either that or a close second to Collision.
There were things I liked about it. The flashbacks were exciting ...although we knew that Sayid was a torturer its interesting to see 'how' he learned. The connection with Kate's dad was good.
Did anyone catch at the end when he said he felt 'nothing' when he beat that man? Referring to Chaarlie not being repentant for shooting Ethan perhaps? I didn't quite catch Charlie's emotions there at the end..does he remember? Was he showing fear?
There were things I didn't like but that goes in the other thread.
I have so many thoughts running through my head, I don't even know where to begin!
Same here! I thought the actor who played the 'other' was awesome! Has anyone seen him in anything else?? He was very convincing as a 'what did I do?' nice guy (even though I suspected he was an other from the start) hehe
