I time traveled.
The smoke monster got me.
I got lost in the jungle.
I was out looking for Jin.
The Others got me.
I died. Then I came back to life.
It wasn’t me. It was the smoke monster PRETENDING to be me.
I was busy deciding between Sawyer and Jack.
OK. So, there’s no excuse for me missing my Lost column last week. But not to worry! I’m back!
Here’s what went down this week, in a dirty baseball:
In Plane Dimension, Nadia is married to Sayid’s brother, who got mixed up with some organized crime guys (including Widmore’s mercenary Martin Keamy!) over a debt. They fuck up Sayid’s brother and kidnap Sayid, who – despite his will to become a “better man” – kills Keamy and escapes. But not before finding Jin(!) tied up in a freezer. On the island, per Locke/Smoke Monster, Claire goes to the temple, where John Lennon and crew put her in a Silence of the Lambs-esque hole. Kate tries to rescue her. Dogen and Sayid have a badass fight, and at the last minute, Dogen decides to ban him. Then he changes his mind, and asks Sayid to kill L/SM. Instead L/SM sends Sayid back to everyone at the temple with a message: Jacob’s dead. Leave the temple by sundown, or you’re dead. Frank, Sun, and Ilana make it to the temple. Sayid kills Dogen and John Lennon and Smoke Monster comes in and fucks shit up. Then L/SM gathers out front with his new recruits, and Kate’s like, “WTF?”
Here’s what we learn:
