I loved last night's episode. LOVED

Sorry, but my LJ cut is not working so SKIP FOR SPOILERS!!!

I loved seeing Sawyer as a cop - a sad and lonely person just as he was when he landed on the Island. I loved the relationship with Miles, and the rage at Anthony Cooper. I’m surprised – but maybe I shouldn’t be – to see that LAPD actually have sex with people in their sting ops. And I really think that Miles was inappropriate to run his partner’s credit card. But OK, I’ll accept that as part of the story. I’m not sure where they are going with Sawyer and Kate here. Am I supposed to accept that less than 48 hours after his girlfriend of 3 years dies Sawyer is already mooning over Kate? That seems to be a stretch but whatever, I am sure Josh Holloway will sell it to me and I’ll buy it. I had my doubts that I would accept Sawyer and Juliet as a couple, but I loved them together too. This whole episode was just about how F’ed up Sawyer is with any kind of intimacy.

Smokey is turning out to be a great character. He is mostly evil, but we are finding out that he is that way for a reason. His mother was crazy. He has been imprisoned for centuries. He is casual about killing and violence, but he is rational too. If he is a god or a demon then killing humans might be regrettable but necessary and not something to feel bad about. Or maybe it’s just his nature – like Sayid. He may be so far past normal standards of good and evil that it has really ceased to matter to him anymore. Humans are pawns to him and not important. He killed all of those Ajira people, he drove Claire insane, he killed everyone at the Temple too. He will kill anyone he doesn’t need and manipulate anyone he needs.

I think that he started working Ben a long time ago. I don’t really understand how he fooled Richard into thinking that he was Jacob and was talking to Ben directly. That’s a part of the story that we haven’t seen yet. But Smokey’s machinations began with the eviction of the true leader – Widmore – and his replacement with a flawed leader – Ben. Ben wasn’t selected in the way that leaders are usually selected. He ousted Widmore in a coup and became the leader, but he never had access to Jacob. This gave Smokey the means to manipulate the Others particularly once Ben moved a group out of the Temple and into the Barracks. Was Widmore aware that he was helping Smokey when he helped Locke? I was pretty sure he was on Smokey’s side for a long time, but after thinking about it more last night I think he’s always been Jacob’s man.

Claire made me sad last night. The scene with the freaky skull-baby was sad and yeah, I can see how easy it would be to go insane if you lost your baby. Kate just can’t let her raise Aaron now. It’s not going to work out. I hope she isn’t going to attack Kate again, but I think she will. She is too crazy and she will have to die

OK, who were those dead Ajira people? Didn't Hurley buy all the seats on the flight so no innocent people would get stuck on the island?

I don't think Sawyer is really into Kate. I think he feels sort of responsible for her, and also he wants her to back him up when the time comes to make their escape.

Hurley tried, but wasn't able to get all the seats. In one of the earlier eps, they show him freaking out at the Ajira gate when he sees that they sold tix to other passengers.

I def. think Smokey has been manipulating Ben. It was Smokey in Jacob's cabin the whole time, is my theory.

I like the alt timelines now. It's almost like, what are people's "true" natures had Jacob not intervened in their lives. Sawyer is still obsessed with vengeance and all dark and brooding and lonely, but he is (as demonstrated on the Island) ultimately a good caring guy (or tries to be).

I cannot wait till next week! Aaahh! Alpert backstory!!!

Wouldn't it be cool if Kate serves as some sort of a catalyst and through his relationship with her he grows as a person? I would love to see the Losties act in each others' lives in that way.
