Last night’s episode was Miles-Centric, and now that it is confirmed that Miles is Pierre Chang’s son, there is an obvious question. Was Miles born on the island and does that explain his "power"? We find out a little bit about Miles’ life before he came back to the island, but other than the visit from Naomi and then Bram, it was basically meaningless.
On the island it was pretty stupid especially with Kate messing everything up. Kate is way slicker than that, she has lied her way out of things her whole life and now she can’t lie to a drunk Roger (Uncle Rico)? And then Jack tries to intimidate him with what? Threatening to never act on TV again? Can Matthew Fox promise not to do anything after Lost? I would like that, because I cannot stand him or his character. Seriously, what actor with no good lead cinematic roles ever tell anyone he is not acting on TV again. Who does he think he is? I think Sayid on a shitload of LSD should come in slow motion and scalp Jack like Daniel Day Lewis in the Last of the Mohicans. One cool thing on the island is the slug-like construction of the Swan Station. The season finale is called The Incident, and we all know the incident was at Swan, and that is the reason the button is pushed ever 108 minutes. I was drinking some Peroni out of my Swan Dharma pint glass and wearing my Star Wars PJ’s last night watching Lost. Hurley’s Star Wars references were funny, but some were slightly incorrect, probably on purpose. This world would be great without Ewoks, Jar-Jar Binks and Matthew Fox.
The ending with Faraday back should be interesting, in two weeks (damn you Damon and Carlton, you promised no weeks off, what the shit?) the new episode seems to be Faraday-centric and we should learn about where he has been - possibly in Ann Arbor with DeGroots?
So in all seriousness, theories about last night mainly are about Bram and his crew. Who does Number 2 work for? We saw him last week surprise the hell out of us with Illana and ask, “What lies in the shadow of the statue?” This week off the island after Naomi (Number 10 on our hot ladies of lost list) asks him to work for Widmore, Bram abducts Miles, like Will Ferrell in Old School. “You tell anyone about this and I'll fucking kill you. I'm kidding, I'm kidding, we'll have him home by midnight.” So last week I assumed this was Widmore’s Kahana II. That is now obviously not true. Now it can be one of two groups. If this new group works for Ben, would he really have killed one of the main players, Caesar? I mean technically he would kill anyone, even his own daughter, but I just don't think they work for Ben. Maybe they are some type of group that is the remaining members of dharma and want to regain control and research on the island. Maybe they are not hostiles or Dharma and they are a group that wants to protect the original "purpose" of the island's powers.
