When last we left our lovable Losties, we found out the evil thing Kate did in her past, Sawyer finally woke up and continued his charmingly sarcastic ways without missing a beat, and then Kate made out with Jack during what can charitably be described as a nervous breakdown while being haunted by a big horse (I hate those). Eko and Locke then discovered the missing piece of the Hanso project orientation film where it warns against using the computer for anything but typing in the numbers, since it might trigger another “incident.” And the episode ended, of course, with Michael using the computer for something other than entering the numbers when Walt sent him an instant message through the computer screen. And you can tell that Walt is in trouble because he doesn’t type LOL, ROFL or even (*)(*) for boobies.
After a few weeks of nothing but individual character stories, I can tell you that this week we finally get back on track with the whole island mystery. We get to see Eko’s back story and we finally get a good long look at one of them big secrets we’ve been wondering about for over two years. Also, Michael wastes an entire vat of ranch dressing.
