1) Hurley and Libby have fantastic chemistry! Interesting that she was in the nut house, too. However, I want this romance between them to be REAL. I don't want Libby to be playin' him. I like them together. I can't wait to see her backstory, too.
2) Loved lots of Sawyer! Hilarious fight between Sawyer and Hurley. Then again, these are two of my favorite characters.
3) Kate and Sawyer interacting. Kate smiling at Sawyer! Anything involving Kate/Sawyer together gets a thumbs up in my book. I want to see that relationship developed further. They have THE best chemistry on the show. So natural!
The Hurley story was cool, I have a friend who totally called that Dave wasn't real, because he had been studying the subject in a psychology class. Awesome reveal about why Hurley was in the mental institution.
The "Henry Gale" scenes had me riveted... such an awesome character. I totally said the same things he did about the flipping black tiles and sounds back when the counter reached zero in One of Them. Question is, is he really telling the truth about it? Or does he want the numbers to count down for some other reason.
Interesting things he had to say about Mr. Friendly. I suspected as much after we saw him without his beard and talking about another "him" in Claire's flashbacks.
I am becomening more and more disappointed with the way the series has developped into an "every episode for itself" kind of event. There is no continuity from one episode to the next. I am beginning to think that the authors are just baiting the viewers for time by creating filler-episodes. For example, whatever happened to the discovery of the other hatch that Kate and the French woman made; why is this last episode not dedicated to finding out who the imposter Henry Gale is?
well i have to say that I wouldn't normally agree with you... I think there's plenty of continuity, but theres no way they can leave us like this... I could understand "side stepping" some minor theory about character development, but this is gigantic! They can't put this one on the back burner...
I liked it a lot. I think Hurley has the best backstory out of everyone so far. Loved the Dave character as well. It was great to see Eko again, and the Henry/Sayid scene was pretty intense, Sayid is out of control. The Sawyer?Hurley fight was perfect. I'm also glad for all the communication between Hurley and his Doctor. Didn't like the part where Locke felt he had to "ask" Ana-L. to see Henry.
Yet another great episode that had me "OMG-ing" a lot. Dave had me going there for a bit. Not with how the island was fake but how Hurley's life was after he got out of the hospital. What an interesting character! Creepy, though. Oooooooooh, Libby. I can't wait to see her backstory!

About two-thirds of the way through, I was thinking, This is interesting and all, but nothing has really HAPPENED. We already knew Hurley was in the institution.
But then the idea that ALL of it was Hurley's imagination . . . Dave was right, that's actually more plausible than the idea that the weirdness is happening in "reality." That can't actually be the case--or can it? We're only on Season 2--if it is in fact all Hurley's psychosis, the writers will jerk us back and forth for years to come over what's "real."
Henry has to be the unluckiest spy in history! Sayid had ANOTHER surprise up his sleeve! Loved that! Or . . . in keeping with the theme of what's false/real, false/true . . . did Sayid forge the note? That would have taken real balls , , , but Sayid is now officially insane. Whose idea was it to let him have a gun?
Sayid's shooting Henry , . . the levels of irony here are amazing. Because Ana Lucia did to (for) Sayid exactly what Sayid did to (for) Shannon. Because Sayid did exactly what Charlie did, and for the same reason (distress over something terrible that happened to the woman he loved, on account of the Others). And of course because Ana Lucia killed Shannon and has now redeemed herself a little by saving Henry's life. Ana Lucia barking "Get him out of here" . . . she's gone from bossy dictator to sulking outcast and back to top dog here, where she's in her element, fast enough to make your head spin.
And Henry saying, "God can't see the island any more than anybody else can" . . . sent chills down my spine.
HATED Hurley and Libby's destructive rampage. (And they didn't even know about the new drop.) Do you know how much valuable fat that ranch dressing could have provided for 40-odd people? I was screaming at them when they did that. But of course, by the end of the episode, when we realized that Libby was (had been) crazy too, it made more sense.
And Charlie's "No, but I saw a polar bear on roller skates holding a mango" . . . priceless! I'm glad Charlie's gotten some of his sass back.
