wasnt there a LOST thread before? or was that on the old forum? has it really been THAT long? D:
anyway, thoughts? i'll just copy and paste what i posted on another forum...
First of all, awesome. Not sure where this whole alternate timeline thing is going but it's pretty obvious the Jack from the crashless 815 knows something's amiss. I wonder if he's the only one or if other characters will start getting weird feelings too. I loved the Boone/Locke interaction, so cool how the dialogue reflected their on-island relationship. and it was fun to see the comic relief characters like Arzt and Frogurt, albeit slightly corny. also, the fact that Christian's coffin wasn't on the plane made me wonder if it was ever on the plane. And was Desmond really on the plane or was Jack imagining it?
As for the main timeline, the shit has most definitely hit the fan. sawyer was SO pissed, though I wouldn't blame Jack as much as he does. It was Faraday's idea to begin with, not Jack's, he was just doing what he thought was right. It's not like Jack himself wrapped those chains around Juliet. And I'm saying this as someone who doesn't particularly like Jack at all. But it was sad to see Juliet die properly. When she got pulled down that hole in the S5 finale I was actually reacting physically and out loud, all like "no no no!" and covering my mouth, it's rare that a TV show would make me react in such a way.
Evil Locke/smoke monster... I knew it. It was obvious from the s5 finale that this fake Locke/Jacob's beach buddy was indeed smokie, but it was still cool to have proper confirmation. And he is SO creepy. I just hope he doesn't do anything worse to Richard.
And the temple... I have to say all the hippies with guns was kinda funny. But they seem to know their shit, and I can't wait to see how it all plays out.
