Blogging "Lost" Continued II

I thought it was superb. The flashbacks seemed to be meaningless explorations of Jack's motivations and then, bang, the guy from the arena step-running episode turns out to be the guy in the underground facility...I think.

Interesting and promising decision to basically give viewers the answer to most of the first season's question about what the Island is, or appears to at least. The promise is that much more fleshing out of details and twisting and turning of the plot lies ahead for us to enjoy.

One question occurs. If I'm not mistaken, the Quarantine sign was inside the hatch, indicating that whatever is outside the underground bunker is being labeled as quarantined. That would make the underground guy a kind of monitor for whoever created this quarantine space for the unnamed "it" on the Island. Also, it appeared that the ladder visible at the top of the entry hatch did not extend all the way down when Kate fell. That would imply that there was some sort of elevator mechanism to bridge the gap between the bottom of the hole and the bottom of the ladder.

Here we go, off again down the rabbit hole that will make me really hate the repeats when ABC begins dropping them in as a way of "extending" the season. And, here's hoping that we end this season at a place none of us will have anticipated.
