Episode Recap: The Last Recruit

 Welcome to another week of LOST recapping!  Hope you all had a great week. :)  As always, I'm sharing my thoughts on the show and I want to hear from you so chime in in the comments!
  • Locke Monster confessed to both Jack and Claire that he was using their father's body back when they first got to the island.
  • Locke Monster's comments about the original Locke being a sucker just made me sad.  I hope that this doesn't turn out to be the truth about the original Locke. 
  • Claire to Jack: "You decided the moment you let him talk to you.  Like it or not, you're with him now." What is the significance of letting Locke Monster talk to you?  That seems to be a huge theme but I'm not sure why.
  • Widmore's people can bomb Locke Monster's people?  If that is the case, they should be able to get rid of Locke Monster, don't you think?
  • Hurley's comment about people being brought back from the "dark side" - you know, "like Anakin" - was great!
  • Kate is basically blackmailing Sawyer in the alternate timeline regarding his trip to Australia.
  • Ilana is Desmond's lawyer. Ha!
  • I loved Desmond's comment to Sayid: "What are you going to tell this woman that you did to get her back?"  I'm REALLY hoping this is the key to bringing Sayid back to the "light" side ...
  • Is Claire coming back to her senses because of Kate's speech?  Funny, I thought it would take more than that.
  • Claire and Jack meet in the alternate timeline (after Desmond worked some of his magic) but Jack is called away to emergency surgery - I'm guessing this will be for Locke (I was right about that).  It looks like the alternate timeline is parallleling the island timeline - Claire and Jack, Sun and Jin, etc.  Did you notice that as well?
  • Why don't I think that Sawyer's escape plan will work?
  • And now Sawyer wants to throw Jack off the boat because Jack isn't sure about leaving the island ... and there goes Jack!
  • Jin & Sun are at the hospital and their baby is going to be okay - yay!
  • Jack and his son are bonding.  This is good, but I'm thinking something is going to go wrong.
  • Back on the island Jin and Sun are FINALLY reunited - YAY!!!!!!!! (oh, and Sun can speak again too)
  • Looks like Widmore doublecrossed Sawyer - go figure.
  • Widmore bombed Locke Monster but it's Jack who is injured.  I'm having flashbacks to the original plane crash, what about you?
  • Locke Monster to Sawyer: "It's ok, you're with me now."
Is it just me or did the preview for next week look like the preview for a horror movie?  Why is that?


  1. It did kind of look like a horror movie preview. True that!

    I got out of bed and bounced up and down when Jen and Sun embraced.

  2. PS
    I was SO happy when Jack said maybe Smokey doesn't want them to leave and leaving doesn't feel right. Yah Jack!

  3. I'm wondering if Sun can speak again because her sideflash self acknowledges an alternate life. No idea if that's even a viable possibility, but with what we've seen so far, it seems to make sense.

    My recap/thoughts are up here:

  4. so happy for Jin and Sun but I can't help feeling it's gonna end badly for all of them. I think Jack is gonna be the only "candidate" that survives that's why John the smoke monster wants him so bad. I don't know that's just my guess this week. Last week I thought it was gonna be Hurley!
