I liked it and I didn't like it. Sun and Jin episodes usually put me to sleep. Sorry..but I find their story boring. However all that aside I did like a lot of the island stuff. I liked the hatch stuff and the 'balloonies' trek. I liked Charlie's snark and I liked Ana's apology. Ditto to almost everything pacejunkie mentioned.
If they put Sayid and Ana together as anything other than battle comrades I think I might be seriously ill. That does not set right with me at all.
to tell you the truth guys, i had pretty low expectations for this episode. i just thought comming from a mind blower like maternity leave, this would be sub par. But like every time i doubt lost it wacks me over the head with one great episode. this was VERY well written, like everyone said, people were askin questions, alot of humor, and a new island miriacle (yes i do believe suns pregnancey was a mirica.) And i loved charlie and Ana in this episode. oh and how can anyone forget the cunning son of a gun Henry Gale! that guy is totally in controle, other or not. and the got some milk ending had me laughing out loud. really great stuff though.
Quite a pleasant episode, with lots of knowing shout outs to the audience. It was very strong on showing how the characters are starting to relate to each other as a group of friends where you gossip about each other and know how someone is going to react to something. I did wonder why no one was curious as to how Charlie got a gun.
My favorite snarky line of Charlie's was when he infoirmed Ana of Sayid's lack of humor and then asked himself why he'd be expecting her to notice.
I enjoyed the return of Sun's dog and it was cool that Jae Lee was English tutor instead of lover. (They're still teasing us about the mystery woman in the US.) But how could Sun except a diagnosis of endemetriosis? If you had it that bad, you'd darn well know.
Loved Hurley and Sun acting mutually guilty sheaking off with their respective contraband. Apparently, though, Hurley didn't give away everything in the hatch's larders. Locke indicated that there was still tons of stuff in there.
And the pregnancy test was manufactured by Widmore--definitely a Dharma-Hanso holding company!
Yep, loved it! I don't enjoy the Sun/Jin backstories that much, but Jin really surprised me in the end. I didn't think he would believe Sun, and the fact that he accepted her word that she hadn't been with anyone else makes me like him a whole lot more.
It seemed like more of the characters were on screen than in the last few eps; it had more of an ensemble feel to it, like season 1 eps. I've missed that lately.
I wish there had been more of the balloon trek! And I loved Charlie taunting Ana (Sorry, Controversleigh! But I think he actually likes her. Really.) I've always found Ana tedious, but I really liked her in this episode. I think she's got potential.
I loved, loved, loved this ep. This ep was a shipper's dream. I love it when Jin is so sweet to Sun and when Sun stands up to Jin. I'm just so glad that they didn't create tension bewteen Sun and Jin. For once, they gave us a satisfying, feel-good episode with a strong male/female relationship.

LOL. Pace, we never agree on anything! Sayana has the best chemistry!
I absolutely LOVED this episode. It's one of my favorites of S2. This eppy was brilliantly written. I gotta say that I'm proud of Ana for apologizing to Sayid. I still don't like her, though. Anyway, enough of that. Charlie taunting her was the greatest thing and I couldn't stop laughing. The bum part was hilarious, too. Awwww, Jin and Sun. So cute. Henry is freaking me out. *shudders* I loved that last part!

Can someone explain to me though what Charlie's issue with Ana is? I mean seriously....he was like, horrible to her....making fun of her like he knows her....he has never spoken to her so how would he know if she has a sense of humor? Then hissing at her that she "murdered" someone....my God....that was so out of the blue....he's never even spoken to the girl....and he's a druggie loser who hurt physically and emotionally the two most loved, sweetest women on the island (Claire and Sun). He deserves a beating for sure, ANOTHER one I mean lol.....and preferable this time at the hands of Ana.
