Jeremy Paxman is doing the full Morris, about the spree shootings earlier today, so it seems like as good a time as any to escape into the brighter, sharper world of Lost.
Oh, yeah, I forgotâ€¦ Previously on Lost, three beloved characters got obliterated. One literally, and two disposed of at the bottom of the ocean, where their bodies wonâ€™t ever be retrieved. Sigh.
So, we start on Jackâ€™s eye â€“ this shot is a favourite convention of the show, and if somebody hasnâ€™t already compiled all of them together, somewhere, itâ€™s bound to happen soon enough.
So Jack saved Locke, and he thinks heâ€™s a candidate for a surgery that Jack is developing. John Locke doesnâ€™t want to be a candidate, though. He seems to recognise the phrase. Jack could do with having House MD on his side.
Jack wakes to Sayid telling him that theyâ€™re on Hydra island. Sayid even makes a joke. Actually, I reckon Sayid might be back on the turn again.
Jackâ€™s sweetest moment in ages was last episode, where he deferred to Hurley. Now he asks Hurleyâ€™s permission to go and talk to non-Locke. It is a lovely moment.
And now non-Locke admits what we had already worked out â€“ that he was the vision of Jackâ€™s father from way back in that first or second episode. He says it was because they needed to find water. And that makes a certain amount of logical sense, but itâ€™s difficult not to see that it was a pretty cruel choice to make on non-Lockeâ€™s part.
I am so far behind it is unreal. And you guys are all trying to talk about the finale and I have to go like LAH LAH LAH LAH with my hands over my ears, so here we go. Going to shimmy through.
So, like, Libby! I love Libby! Iâ€™m so glad theyâ€™re actually doing something with her character. I already know that Mr Sulman will have been thinking of me when he saw this episode, because Iâ€™ve been going on about her since, like, she died and that.
