Yeah, I can’t help it. I have to say tonight’s episode of "Lost" jumped the shark. They just went all retarded. Why?
…well, check after the link. There’s spoilers, not that it matters I guess.
So, this "Jacob" that Ben took Locke to was… an empty chair. In an empty room. And Ben stood talking. To. The. Chair.
There’s two possibilities.
1) Ben is basically Norman Bates.
2) The Others are controlled/led by an invisible man with (apparently) telekinetic powers.
And of course since this is "Lost", it has to be Number Two. Why? Because that’s what they do. That’s the strong implication from the voice Locke briefly heard to the crazy telekinetic-like shaking of the room. That is what they do on this show.
Forget that Number One would actually be more believable, creepy, and interesting: the Others are led by an invisible man.
"Lost" is officially retarded.
…I don’t think I can sit through three more years of this. I really don’t.
