Well, Sayid's done and gone scrooooooowed things up now, hasn't he?
"A twelve-year old Ben Linus brought me a chicken salad sandwich. How do you think I am?"After half a season of reconfiguring its style every which-away, Lost returned to familiar roots tonight with a Sayid-centric "flashback" episode. Didn't make it any less of the thrill that we've come to expect lately. "He's Our You" was the payoff for last week's show, which a lot thought was a step-down from the recent intensity.
Leave it to Lost to crank it up again and break the needle right at the end of an episode.
It's always good to see William Sanderson in anything. But his role as the torturer might have been the creepiest character that I've ever seen him as. I thought it was one of the more inspired bits of Lost casting that we've seen (and that's saying plenty good). Also loved seeing the circumstances of Sayid's presence on Ajira 316 being revealed.
And did anyone else catch the DHARMA logo on Hurley's jumpsuit? Heh-heh... wouldn't it be nifty if an official Lost: Hurley's DHARMA Initiative Cookbook wound up on bookshelves? :-P
Excellent episode, as usual. Can't wait for next week's, titled "Whatever Happened, Happened".
(And the Internets will be burning up for the next seven days about whether he "lives or dies", no doubt...)
