Aw. That's sweet. And it's awfully nice that she's standing up for, and he's recognizing, her independence. But this is an island where people are captured, mauled, eaten and killed on a regular basis. So not to put too fine a point on it, but are you fucking stupid? Sun herself was kidnapped (albeit falsely, not that anybody knows that part) just a few days ago! JESUS. You know, if it's me and my pregnant wife on this island, I'm not letting her out of my sight. And if she wants to get all Virginia Woolf garden-of-one's-own on me, that's just tough shit. I'll sleep on the couch if we ever get home. God-damn, you people. IT'S CALLED THE BUDDY SYSTEM.
And just when you're thinking that Sun wants to be alone for some other deceptive reason, like Jae shows up on the island or something, it doesn't happen. She just puts her hands on her stomach and smiles.
Henry's in the armoury, reading, when Jack comes in. Jack asks how the book is. He doesn't ask for an excerpt, but Henry gives him one: "'Men reject their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and honour those whom they have slain.' So what's the difference between a martyr and a prophet?" And you're thinking, "Well, a prophet is alive," but Jack says, "Either way, it sounds like you end up dead." Was Jack listening in on Henry's conversation with Ana? Anyway, Jack came in to invite Henry out for some breakfast.
Locke's getting out bowls and pouring himself some Dharma cereal. Which -- I mean, wasn't Hurley's whole stupid deal that they should just eat all the food in a big culinary orgy so that no one can whine about the rationing? And here they've got food for themselves down in the hatch (Locke actually says "the pantry's full of food")? Can somebody explain this to me? Oh, and then the writers get all cutesy with Henry asking all kinds of questions -- "What's the computer for?" "Where'd you guys get cereal?" -- that Jack and Locke can't really answer, so Henry makes fun of them. "You guys don't know much, huh? I'd be asking all kinds of questions about all this stuff down here. You guys don't even seem that curious." I don't think we can claim it's shout-out territory, since TWoP's far from the only outlet bitching about this sort of thing. I'm just surprised how many people seem satisfied just that the problem's been acknowledged here. We know they're not curious. How about making them curious?
