Yeah, well, bygones.

I dunno, ya'll. Lost didn't really do it for me last night. I mean it was scary as hell--I kept getting up to check and make sure the doors were locked. But at the end it just left me feeling... well, nothing really. I think I'm still miffed that Charlie's back story is so ordinary. Everyone else has all these great secrets and mysteries and Charlie... threw up on a copier. Nice.

Also, last night's episode was just one tired television cliche after another in the interest of preventing the plot from moving forward even a little bit. Listen, J.J., I've watched years of crappy TV and I've been bitchslapped by the best crappy TV writers around so don't be thinking you're gonna pull that tired shit on me. Amnesia? Puleez. One of the characters flying into a rage and killing the only person with any answers? Been there done that. Bored now. Do better.

The only really good part was when Lucy said her dad was "buying some paper company in Slough." The Office! Shout! Out!

Yeah, I was a little disappointed in his backstory but now we know that the whole "taking care of you" thing is not new. I had to fast forward through the sales meeting scene because I couldn't take it. From that perspective, the puking was funny!

I do kind of like that we're still left in the dark about Ethan. Are there others? Will they find where he came from? Will they try? It's pretty interesting to me. And Charlie/Claire are way too adorable.

Me neither. I used the opportunity to get up and check that the door was locked one more time.

I like the mystery, I just wish they wouldn't use such cliched devices to maintain it. Charlie shooting Ethan like that was so movie-of-the-week.

Ironically, I forgot to deadbolt the door and hang the chain last night. I think that was a sign that I was calm with Ethan being dead. Every previous episode with Ethan I had nightmares afterwards!

Yeah, cliches suck. The amnesia, and all the characters, etc but I still was suprised to see Charlie killing him. I don't know how I didn't expect that! :)

I had all kinds of Scary!Ethan in the jungle dreams last night. Apparently my subconscious is not satisfied that he's dead.

Which is understandable! Knowing JJ, it was probably an island hallucination for everyone - because they wished it so!
