LOST Season 6: What Kate Does

Warning: Spoiler Alert !

Review:

This was a Kate-centric episode and unfortunately what Kate did was the least interesting part of the whole episode. Overall it was OK, not too great. Here are some of the highlights from the episode –

1.  Sayid was NOT reincarnated as Jacob, as popularly theorized by most. My gut feeling was right about that (As proof – read my previous post). Instead he was “infected”. Now that’s the part I liked ! Here’s more on the Infection –

  • The Infection was first introduced to us in Season 1 by Danielle Rousseau, when she suspected that Sayid was infected. She warns him to watch out for the “sickness” and look out for people who start behaving differently. Then we didn’t really hear about the sickness for a long time, until Season 5, when we were shown the sickness that infected Danielle’s crew. All the infected people had gone into the hole outside the temple prior to getting infected – all except Rousseau. Apparently, the MIB or the Smoke Monster had “possessed” them and changed them to somewhat evil. Else why would Rousseau’s boyfriend / husband try to kill her ?
  • Dogan told Jack that Claire had been infected. Now that was super interesting ! That actually proved another one of my theories – that Claire died in Season 4 in the bomb blast by Keamy’s men. By the time Sawyer got to her, her body had been “claimed” by the MIB – or she had been infected in other words. The same thing happened to Christian Shephard. Jack couldn’t find his body – and that would be explained if his body too had been claimed. Then, he came to get Claire in the same episode of Season 4 and she left with him. The duo then meet Locke in Jacob’s cabin, and she definitely seemed different. Recall her face when Locke asks – “How do I save the island?” – she looked a little evil. Maybe you wouldn’t call it evil, but she looked like she knew something was going on, something not good.

So Sayid is really dead. Claire is really dead. Christian is really dead. Their bodies have been possessed by MIB. Don’t ask me why. I have no clue.

2.  Kate and Claire are together again in context of Aaron. Kate was the one who delivered Aaron and ended up being the one who raised him in the island time-line. Now, in the no-crash time-line, we see Kate and Claire together again…along with Ethan ! That was a nice surprise. Ethan, too was involved with Claire’s baby in the island time-line. Now he was Claire’s doctor in the other time-line. This is another group of people interacting the same way they did on the island. Destiny, anyone ?

3.  The most boring part was when Kate ran away from the Others.2 to go to Sawyer. Lately, I like her character less and less. Why can’t she choose between Jack and Sawyer once and for all ? Moreover, it seemed like Sawyer wanted nothing to do with her anyway. After a teary conversation with Sawyer about Juliet, she packed her bags to go back, presumably to the Temple.

4.  Somewhere in the middle we were given hints about some other person (other than the Others and Rousseau) laying the traps in the jungle. And in the end, we were introduced to a new rifle-wielding and infected Claire. Awesome ! But remember – she is dead (according to me). Lets see how that theory pans out.

I will re-watch the episode to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Next week promises to be a much more interesting and eventful episode. Looking forward…
