Tonight’s episode of LOST was unusual, simply because it released tension rather than simply creating it. Things that we knew were bound to happen, things that we wondered about, we finally got to see.
I won’t go into details, but those who have yet to see the episode may still wish to refrain from reading further until they’ve seen it.
Perhaps most interesting, given my own interests outside of LOST, was the reflection on Thomas the Apostle. The themes of doubt and faith, and of the need to take a leap of faith, returned to the foreground in this episode.
The only other detail I’ll mention relates to last week’s episode. The carpet cleaning company whose van Ben was driving was called Canton Rainier. That’s an anagram…for reincarnation.
