"Follow the Leader"
A not terribly satisfying episode, nor did I expect it to be (serving as pipe layer for the season finale next week).
Still, full of surprises:
--Eloise Hawking's ready willingness to help Jack complete Faraday's plan to set off the H-Bomb
--Richard Alpert's hand in almost everything, past and present
--Alpert's hobby: constructing ships in bottles [screen cap from DocArzt and Friends]: is this a hint that, as I have long suggested, the ageless one originally came to The Island on The Black Rock?
--Alpert's insistence to Sun that he had seen Sawyer, Hurley, Jin, et al die
--The sudden reappearance of Sayid (and another notch on his gun)
--The burial site of the bomb--beneath New Otherton
--Locke's final disclosure to Ben of his real motive in taking all the Others to Jacob: to kill Jacob.
