Warning to spoilerphobes: This article will contain spoilers, and information from the recently released sneak peaks. You’ve been warned, so don’t throw a hissy.
Last week’s episode “Namaste” was chock full of…well…filler. There’s no doubt that it was a set up episode for all the big things to come. The most exciting part of last week? The preview for this week. I’m in no way bashing “Namaste,” it was a great episode that stayed on par with the so far amazing season five. I just have this feeling that when we look back on it and comparing it to the rest of the season, we’ll see it more as a filler/character episode than anything else.
But back to that preview! Did you see it?! Explosions, gunshots, and Sayid is gonna go BAMF on some one pretty soon! Let’s flash forward and take a look at some things I want to see in “He’s Our You:”
Sayid gets a taste of his own medicine…
Sayid has been riding the bad luck train for quite some time now. I’d call it karma. This is what happens when you torture people. You end up crashing on an island, have two girls you love killed, and then traveling back in time to that same island, only to have people think you’re an enemy. From the looks of the sneak peak, the bad karma isn’t over for Sayid. Looks like we’re in for our first dose of torture in a while. And let me tell you, just judging from his looks…that guy who’s going to do all those things Sayid used to do…that guy is messed up. You can just tell. He’s been doing this a damn long time, and it probably doesn’t even effect him anymore. And it may just be me, but I’m pretty sure I saw a look on his face when Sayid was resisting. A look that said: “Now this is gonna be fuuuuun.”
…and then turns into the BAMF he was back in season one!
The sneak peaks usually come pretty early in the episode. So what happens after Sayid gets his daily torture medicine? He goes nuts. I’m not talking crazy, I’m talking bad ass nuts. All those explosions in the promo? I’d put money on saying they’re because of Sayid. You want to know what else I think will be Sayid’s fault? There’s a feeling in my gut that just tells me Sayid will be the reason we see Harry Potter turn into Voldemort. We already know Little Ben has been in contact with Richard. He told Sayid that he could help him. My prediction? Little Ben is going to help Sayid. And once he’s done, Sayid will return the favor by trying to kill him. This will result in Little Ben’s view on life changing forever. How can he trust anyone if the one person he helped tried to kill him? He can’t. From now one, he’ll be looking out for Ben, and Ben only.
More Big Ben!
Speaking of Ben, let’s get more of his grown up self. How long are we going to have to wait for that Locke/Ben confrontation? Just give me…five minutes. One scene and I’ll be happy. Let’s just see Locke kick his ass, and then Ben come back with some smart ass remark. Those are the moments this show is made of!
More Jack/Sawyer showdowns.
Ok, I’ll admit it. As a Jack fan, that scene in “Namaste” hurt a little bit. But Sawyer was right, Jack’s made a lot of bad decisions in his time as leader. But, sorry Sawyer fans…Jack’s coming back. And right now, I believe the overall score is in favor of Jack. One verbal smackdown in Sawyer’s favor didn’t do much to change that.
Kate finally dies!
I couldn’t believe they’d release a sneak peak that showed Kate actually dying! …ok, I made that up. But how awesome would it be to just see her finally go? I cannot wait for the moment where Kate finds out about Sawyer and Juliet. She’ll be put into her place faster than she’d hop into bed with any guy who makes her feel good about herself. I can see the scene in my head already. Juliet and Kate standing there. Juliet coming right out with it…”Listen you little tramp, if you think you can come back here after three years and hope James has moved on, you’re wrong. And if you even try to screw up everything we’ve got going here, I’ll ****ing slit your throat.” It may not happen exactly like that…but it should.
Tonight’s episode is going to be awesome. That’s all there is to it. It’ll obviously be very Sayid centric. And it looks like we’re going back to our old flashback style of doing things. So what are you looking forward to tonight?
