I absolutely loved this episode. Everything's been so 'heavy' (understandably) so far this season, we needed an episode like this! And the "you make your own luck" was an interesting contrast to the "you can't escape fate" message of Flashes Before Your Eyes.
And I saw lots of groundwork for future plot points... obviously the Kate/Sayid/Locke/Danielle rescue mission (and hope of finally a Danielle/Alex reunion?), but also hints of tension around the whole Sun kidnapping still to be resolved.
But mostly, I'm just thrilled to see an episode again with almost the whole ensemble, and some of the awesome banter that I've been missing lately. And LOVED Hurley trying to come back at Sawyer with a nickname!
This episode foams over the brim with awesomeness (see what I did there?)!
Best line ever!
And yes... I liked the nickname overload - it was almost as if Sawyer had to get it out of his system after having been away from them all for a few days. Also, I think after that key moment where Kate stopped calling him James and called him Sawyer again, it was sort of a demonstration of him putting the 'Sawyer' persona back on, when he'd let it slip a bit with Kate.
Hurley is a really hopeful and uplifting guy and the aspect of shaping your own well being was explained deeper.
Very different from last weeks episode. I know many may still be in the droughtful stage of being angry at Lost, but this episode was relieving on so many levels.
This episode brought a tonne of hope into my eyes. I was smiling the whole time.
Hurley's horny parents were funny. Seemed like a joke by the writers.
"Hey, wouldn't it be funny if they want to have 'fun' after 17 years?"
