“Who Cares?” – A LOST Review

THAR BE SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

The quote in the title refers to probably Ben’s most deadpan lines ever.  When asked by Jack what will happen to the rest of the passengers on the plane ride to doomsville a.k.a. The Island, Ben utters, “Who cares?”

Last night’s episode, “316,” was the best of the season so far, and here’s a few reasons why:

  • The Oceanic 6 are now the Ajira 5 (maybe more, maybe less)… and they’re back on Oahu The Island.
  • Ms. Hawking (Dan Faraday’s Ma, ‘natch) explained a little miniscule bit about how the Dharma Initiative finds said other place.
  • Frank Lapidus is back!  I saw Jeff Fahey’s name in the credits, but I wouldn’t have expected him to be piloting Flight 316.  Been a big fan of the Lawnmower Man since his days as The Marshal.  Always happy to see him.
  • Loved the opening shot on Jack’s opening eye!  Of course, it’s an homage to the pilot episode/movie (and early seasons).
  • John Locke gave Jack an “I told you so” of sorts from beyond, via a letter he wrote before committing s-u-i-c-i-d-e?!
  • And the closing shot of Jin, driving Hurley’s pre-beat-up, pre-repair-job minibus (actually, it was Ben’s Dad’s van, a.k.a. Workman)… in the past?

Overall, it’s great when shows like this get back to basics – especially when this show gets back to basics (like halfway through Season 3 after the mess that was Season 2).

Now for the SILLY THEORIES portion of our show.

  • Who beat up Ben?  Answer: the missing 6th member of the Oceanic 6 – lil’ Aaron.
  • What did Sayid do to get arrested and brought aboard in the same fashion as KateHe shoplifted the pooty.
  • How did Hurley know about the flight?  Well, this is kind of serious, but I’d guess Charlie the Friendly Ghost.  I said “kinda.”
  • And finally, will Jeff Fahey and Matthew Fox unite to star in We Are the Marshal?  One can only dream.
