It's interesting to read that some people give the ep a 7 and didn't like it, and other's give at an 8 and love it
I guess we all have our interpretation of the ratings!
I gave it a 7 -- I thought it was very good, much better than I expected it to be. And Jate was done very well in the ep (just adults acting like real adults for a change -- thank you, PTB!)
Evie and MF did an amazing job, they are so beautiful and natural together (and I'm not a jater or skater, just to let you know
), and I liked filling in some of the gaps on our way to TTLG. Now, I think finding out who's in the coffin will really seal the deal as to why Jack is going off the deep end.
Juliet was back to her awesome self -- this is the Juliet I loved last season, and her way of bringing Jate together was very well done! Kudos, writers!
I love crazy-Hurley, he's doing a great job with the role, and that scene was super-creepy!
I didn't dig the CS apparition as much -- a little too obvious, without really achieving anything except to act as another "gotcha-ghost" moment, which is becoming a little too much of a frequent plot device this season
I was also a bit let down when the writers had us for just a moment thinking that Kate's phone conversation had to do with work for Ben -- that would have been awesome, until she immediately went back to the -- "well, I think I also love Sawyer too" phase, which I think has to remain in the show till the end or else the triangle is over.
And absolutely loved bad-*ss Jin
Very cool for him to get to call the shots, not to mention the foreshadowing of how Sun may be able to get off the island! Can't wait for next week!
