Temple: Sayid's body lays in repose on the woven rug. Lennon and two Templars (one in a turban, the other in a headband) approach Jack. Lennon asks if he's Shephard and says, "We need to speak to you, privately." Jack tells him to say whatever he needs to, there. Lennon says that while he's asking politely, he's not above having Jack dragged off. Jack hits his breaking point. He still doesn't cry though. Instead, he fights back. He starts with Headband, and then Turban joins in the fun. But soon Lennon and Hurley's eyes leave that action. Hurley yells, "Jack!" Lennon says, "Oh my God." When Jack looks to his left, he sees it too. It is Sayid, and he's sitting up. He blinks and looks at Jack. "What happened?" Fade to black. Bad robot.
Well, I tried to offer most of my commentary throughout the recap so it wouldn't matter if I punked out at the end, because I'm always so tired by the end -- and oh so ready to punk out -- like now, for instance. So, I'll just say one thing. One popular theory floating around is that Jacob has come to inhabit Sayid's body. I'm not sure that's what's going on. It almost seems too obvious. Of course I may just have PTSD. This show has me shell-shocked (in a good way), lost (in a good way) and confused (in a good way) and not so ready to predict its next steps, right here and now. I'll catch you after this week's episode: "What Kate Does" in which Kate's on the run and Jack may be endangering someone's life. How did they ever come up with that totally new twist?
Come on over to the forum and wait it out with us, and remember, when you get in a cab at LAX, lock the doors; you never know who'll try to hijack your ride.
