Nobody likes a bully.
- Johnny McKee
Great. Another episode, following the EXACT same plot. I really don’t understand. Lost was one of the best shows ever on television (next to 24, in my opinion)… so what happened to J.J. Abrams in the mean time? Did he go insane?
If you didn’t watch the episode, I can put all 44 minutes into a few sentences. Johnny McKee turns up, and he uses poison to kill people who bully him (just like he did before he was put in Alcatraz… gasp!). Hauser, Rebecca, and Doc track him down, eventually apprehending him. We also find out that Tommy Madsen, Rebecca’s grandfather, used to always be in the infirmary having blood drawn and having tests run on him. That’s it.
What this means: Apparently there’s something special about Tommy Madsen, and he probably has a lot to do with how the 63s ended up “making the jump” (as Hauser called it in a previous episode) into the present. Other than that, there’s really nothing new here, and nothing else has been revealed about what’s going on. I’m all for suspense, but if I don’t start getting some answers, I may well just stop watching the show. That being said, I’ll finish the series, out of respect for J.J. Abrams and the glimmer of hope that the end of the season will pull it all together.
But, in the mean time, I’m pretty irritated.
