I thought it was a pretty good episode. The whole thing with Henry Gale saying the counter did nothing shook me a little. Like someone else said before, could he be doing this just because he has his own agenda as an other? Or is he actually telling the truth? I'm leaning with the own agenda as an other. He's just shown that he can't be trusted. He had us fooled into thinking he wasn't an other and now this, there's just a point where you gotta stop trusting that person.
I know some people could predict the Dave's not real, but I didn't see it coming until the doctor pulled the picture out. The train of thought behind it was pretty gnarly. What if this whole island experiment is actually in someone's head? It could technically make sense, that Hurley was actually the main character and he was just building it all in his head. However, that wouldn't explain the flashbacks of other characters so I could just be spewing out jibberish now.
I really liked the episode, it was really something else and Henry's little comment about God was puzzling and intruiging.
Overall I liked this episode very much. The humor was back. When a person's backstory is featured usually it's heavy and Hurley's was heavy but even he got a funny line with the going to the caves thing.Charlie was given the humorous line with the polar bear on skates with mangos and Sawyer was throwing out zingers left and right.It was good to have all the humor back. And the Sawyer/Hurley fight was hilarious. Jin even shined in that one.Loved the hatch stuff too. Too bad Henry is just a guest star -- his character really adds something to the show.Overall I thought it was a great episode.
I dug it. I did. Some of the guys over at the "hated it" thread are really, really down on it, and I guess I can see their point, but it worked for me. We had the humor and we had the mess-with-your-mind moments. I don't exactly know what we were supposed to come out of the episode with, but that's kind of what I liked about it.
Loved it. I had to watch the scene with Henry twice after he said that about God not seeing the island. Does this confirm the theories that the island is somehow cloaked? Sure seems to! Looks like a lot of people including myself were right about Libby...boy did she look out of it though, moreso than I expected...downright deranged, I'd say.
Jorge's acting was really good in this.
I loved it... I was definitely thinking that nothing muchn had happened about 2/3 of the way through, even though I was very entertained. But the last 10 minutes were great in terms of opening all sorts of new questions...
Dying to know more about Libby and "Henry" is killing me because you just don't know what to believe!
Is there something fishy going on at that hospital? 3 strong connections to the island in one place is a lot... I'd like to see more of the doctors to see if anyone looks familiar.
This episode, may have been one of the best, it had humor, suspense, mind twists, plot ACCELERATION! (WTF?), character development, suspense. Then it was followed up by what might be the best South Park ever, I thouroughly enjoyed last night. Especially Gale, letting us know that yes there is an organization, and that it coerces it's own participants through fear of death! Locke's broken leg! Hurly wasting food and being crazy! Bringing up the theory that it's all a dream! One of the best episodes, period.
