I iz confus-ed!

Lost was a mind fuck as always...and Torchwood was bizarre.
Lost-
Okay, we all knew Michael was Ben's spy. That was leaked months ago! But the whole Jin "I've only been married for two months" while Sun was having their baby? The hell???!!! That was the strangest twist. And she thinks he's dead? $20 says he made a deal with Ben to get her off of the island...with the price of him being dead to her and pretty much everyone else.

Nice stuff on the boat tonight, too. They're all getting cabin fever! DON'T TRUST THE CAPTAIN. Yeah, Mike, whatever...and the boat belongs to Penny's dad!

One more episode, then a month long break before we get a couple more before the season is over.

Torchwood-
From Out of the Rain...bleah. The concept was pretty cool- the "Night Travelers" coming out of the film, but the execution wasn't that good. They spent more time on atmosphere than story, IMHO. The good stuff- just a little bit about Ianto. He's a movie buff and loved to go to the cinema with his dad! Aw. And a nice tidbit about Jack...he used to perform as "The Man Who Can't Die" in traveling shows 80 years ago. Ouch. Wish they'd touched on that a bit more.

Oh, yeah, Owen is still dead. :(

So you don't think Jin's dead? Yeah, that was a surprise with the flashback and flash-forward going on at the same time! And here I was so happy that both Jin and Sun had managed to get off the island together and they and their baby were going to be fine together!

I didn't know Michael being the spy was "leaked," but people had guessed it - especially since the actor's name was in the credits at the beginning of the season. Bo-ring.

Only one more episode and then a month long break? Gah! Why can't they be NORMAL? None of the TV shows I like are acting normal with their broadcasting! I mean, one week House had TWO new episodes in one week - one on a weird day and one on the regular day - and now it's been weeks and weeks since we had an episode. I guess it's because of the writers' strike still, but it's wonky!

Not reading...not reading...not reading.

Thank you for putting it behind a cut. I don't usually complain about spoilers, but seeing how it hasn't aired out here yet, and I'm wasting time reading LJ until it does...

I appreciate it. =]

That threw me as well, and then I realized what was going on when he got to the hospital and spoke to the Chinese ambassador (or his representative).

And she thinks he's dead? $20 says he made a deal with Ben to get her off of the island...with the price of him being dead to her and pretty much everyone else.

That's an interesting thought - I figured it was just that the Sun scenes were flashforwards, and the Jin scenes were flashbacks. It was only because they've never combined both into one episode that I was confused (again, until Jin got to the hospital and it wasn't Sun who was having the baby).

the the rest of the world, the 'oceanic six' are the only survivors of flight 815, so of course all the others would be 'dead'. the survivors probably had funerals for them and everything to keep up the illusion, because it would likely be Very Bad Indeed for the remaining losties if the island were to be discovered.

at the tombstone sun never said, 'i wish you were alive', she just said 'i miss you.' as i'm sure she does.

my guess: there was only room for so many people on whatever craft eventually left the island. so of course jin would want sun to go, even if it meant he had to stay; and of course claire would want baby aaron to have a chance at a normal life, even if she couldn't be there to see him living it.

Now I REALLY have a headache! I must have missed when Mike being the spy leaked, although I knew Penny's father was behind everything...he was the only person with enough money to do all this; I was sure either he or Penny were involved.

Now...Jin and Son...I am completely baffled by that. At least, I know that next week, they will explain what's happening.

My head is about to explode with trying to figure it out. This is the reason I quit watching Lost the first time.
