Remember last season's episode "The Constant"? The one where Desmond was shifting in time and had to find a constant, which was Penny? The epsiode that many thought was the best of last season, and maybe even the series?
We'll, as I was reading the TV guide, it completely escaped me that this may have something to do with "The Constant". But, in science, you always have a Variable and a Constant, so they are relate. And when I thought of this, I was excited that we would actually see Desmond again.
So, he almost died. But he didn't. I don't think The Island will let him die, but that's a story for another day. Eloise appeared to Penny, and we found out about the story of Daniel Faraday. When he was a child, his mother always pushed him in scienece. It was also revealed that Eloise was an Other, and that Widmore was Daniel's father. But wasn't until the end of the show that we found out why Eloise pushed him so much: she killed her son by accident. Another victim to The Island.
Meanwhile, back on The Island, we found out what happened in the opening scene of this season. Daniel also revealed to Dr. Chang that they time traveled to the 70s, but he was skeptic.
Sawyer's plan has gone completely downhill. Hey, he's a con, he should have known that all cons come out eventually. Anyway, Phil found out the truth, and he was thrown into a closet. Matters only get worse when Daniel, Jack, and Kate attack Dharma folks, and leave to go to the Other's camp to find Eloise. And as they were trying to go to the beach, they were caught. Oh crap. Now they'll never find Rose and Bernard, and the rest.
Now, before Daniel's untimely death, he revealed to everyone that he may be able to stop The Incident from ever happening. Not good. If I learned anything from Lost, it';s that you CANT change your destiny. The Oceanic 6 tried to, but they ended up coming back, albiet to the wrong place.
Next week, we can look forward to a Richard Alpert flashback. Yay!
Top 3 Questions I want Answered:
1). Are the Losties going to try to prevent The Incident?
2). What's going to happen to the Sawyer and the gang?
3). Who is Richard Alpert?
