LOST Thoughts: Ab Aeterno

March 24, 2010

  • We don’t know his politics, but I’m gonna take a wild guess that Richard Alpert’s probably an Obamacare guy.
  • The doctor’s butler was great at fetching floor towels, but left a little to be desired in the “stopping boss killers” category.
  • Couldn’t Jacob have arranged for Ilana to be admitted to the Russian equivalent of Cedars-Sinai, instead of what looked more like a dilapidated Siberian Care Now?
  • What kind of priest rejects a confession? Oh, right..the kind who sells the confessor to a slave ship.
  • Watching the smoke monster interact with chained-up Alpert, I noticed a couple of major flashes when it was right up in his face. Then, Isabella shows up a short while later. It seems pretty clear those flashes were capturing Alpert’s thoughts, so the smoke monster could replicate the visage of Isabella – just like it did with Eko’s brother.
  • I’m no Physics major or anything, but how exactly does a huge ship go from hitting a giant beach statue to comfortably resting upright on the middle of an enormous island?
  • Is it possible that Jacob’s analogy comparing the island to a cork that keeps the evil wine trapped in a protective bottle might be a clue to why the flash sideways island rests at the bottom of the ocean?
  • There were a few moments during this episode where I thought maybe Jacob was the evil one. He was kind of a dick to Alpert at first.
  • I found it very interesting that the Man in Black gave Alpert the exact same instructions for killing Jacob that Dogen gave Sayid for killing The Locke-ness Monster.
  • If the whole chicken shack/temp agency mogul thing doesn’t end up working out, maybe Hurley can get a gig as a translator.

    I’m thinking Nestor Carbonell just had the best acting performance we have seen on Lost in years. Very well played.
