Lost, "In Translation" (heh, that's cute)

Aaaaand Shannon busts out the first bondage joke of the season. This episode was full of wondrous twists and surprises, leaving me loving this show more than ever, but the Saturday-night-rope come-on line made me laugh and laugh and laugh. Yes, Sayid/Shannon is a somewhat wrong pairing, but they're actually making it work; more power to 'em. Who would guess, Sayid and Shannon supplying not only the season's first bondage joke, but the season's first romantic on-island kiss? (You'll forgive me if I don't quite count the dare-you-to-kiss-my-bloodied-lip Kate/Sawyer thing as "romantic." Though, now that I mention it, THAT episode probably contained the season's first bondage joke.)

The Sun-and-Jin backstory was great. V. touching when he revisited his poor old gentle dad. And I was tempted to make an icon of Sun on the beach, in her Western Freedom Whore bikini, but figured everyone else was going to be sporting those icons tomorrow. Plus, I'm lazy, so I just snagged a Sayid one from somewhere on losticons. [EDIT: I made one anyway! I bet everyone else's won't say "Western Freedom Whore," even if they do use the same base.]

I totally did not see the Walt As Firebug thing coming! Yet another great twist. Question is, did he set the boat on fire via conventional means, or via his ~~eerie telekinetic powers~~?

And the final moment, with the music skipping and dying, and Hurley muttering, "Son of a bitch"--that just cemented my adoration for this show. I fall for the cute-'n'-absurd every time.

Go team!

P.S. Also made this, on a lark...

I absolutely love the P.S. icon. It made me choke on my morning's cereal

ROFL! I love that icon. :-) It's so fabulous. You are the coolest. :-)

The show was great! I agree with your wonderful review. *grin*

Regarding Walt:

Question is, did he set the boat on fire via conventional means, or via his ~~eerie telekinetic powers~~?

That is a very good question! They never did explain that, did they? There seems to be some freaky connection between Locke and Walt. When they both were like, "we love the island!" (loosely paraphrased, of course), I could feel my arms get all prickly with goosebumps.

HURLEY LOVE. I can't wait for next week's episode!

Hee - thankee. Well, all the rest of us love the island too, so it's just as well they can't leave for the time being. :)

Hurley is awesome. Must agree there.

That's a good point! We wouldn't have much of a show if they got off that island. ;-)

I'm fairly new to this show, but I'm loving it. Usually, I *never* see big plot twists coming, but I saw the one with Walt. Go me! Maybe I have a weird psychic connection with Locke and Walt! Okay, I'm in a weird mood today. =P

Good detective work, psychic. ;) It does make some sense, now that I think of the close-ups on Walt during the boat-burning scene...
