Lost is one of my favorite shows. I would have watched it anyway. So here this here is a bonus. Here come the spoilers.
To get off of the island, you need to go on a very specific trajectory. Even if it means flying directly into a thunderhead. Which Sayid and Desmond just did. When things went south, Desmondâ€™s mind flashed into the future. Or the past. Then back. Then he didnâ€™t know who Sayid was.
This flying helicopter (oh yeah, they were on a helicopter) left the island a day ago. But really theyâ€™re only 20 minutes out. Time is really messed up on the island. Or better than ever.
Surprisingly, there is an actual boat the helicopter got to it. It seems like a time wall fried Desmondâ€™s brain, which happens to everyone now and again. He is on the boat saying he doesnâ€™t know Sayid. And now heâ€™s in a military campy. Heâ€™s jumping through time more than Billy Pilgrim.
Now Desmond is in a sick bay with someone suffering the same way he has. You see, some people get a little messed up when coming from and going to the island. I blame Einstein. Or Stephen Hawking. Desmond thinks itâ€™s 1996.
Some mathy guy on the island figured Desmond is going into the past on his flashes. He gave him orders to get on a train and find him. In the past. Also, the doctor in the sick bay flipped an alarm and it took about 10 minutes for anyone to respond on the small boat. I mean, Iâ€™m lazy. But thatâ€™s really lazy.
Mathy guy seems a little Charlie Manson in the past. In the past, as an Oxford professor, he is trying to send rats through time to run races. Or run away from Rat Race. Either is a noble pursuit.
Penny, Hanso, the Black Rock. Weâ€™re getting a lot of mythology in our episode today. I forgot about most of these things. Except for Penny. Desmond wonâ€™t shut up about her.
Desmond needs a constant in his lives if he doesnâ€™t want to have a brain aneurysm. He is broken up with Penny in the past, but needs her number so he can call her in the future. Thatâ€™ll fix his brain up proper. Penny knows about the island and she has been searching for Desmond. Then they had a sweet and darling conversation before the phone batteries went dead.
A pretty good episode by my account. A lot of information about time and mysteries on the island. Hooray for Lost.
