Cards on the table early here, recap-readers: This episode confused the hell out of me.

Okay.

We begin at the well, after Locke has gone down and disappeared in a flash. At one timestop, we see Sawyer pulling the rope as it dead-ends into the ground. And the giant monolith is there. FLOOSH! The well is back but it's been filled in.

Down below, we see Locke standing up after his nasty fall (but where is Christian Shephard?? I'm so confused) and limping to the Giant Time Wheel. He jiggles the handle again, and all is well upstairs.

The Losties can 'feel' that they're okay -- meaning in a steady timestream -- because the headaches and nosebleeds are done.

Let's go back to the beach, shall we? Why? Well, it beats just standing there. Sawyer's goal is to await Locke's return, however long that takes. Props, btw, to Miles for snarking at James over the display of fine leadership skills.

On the trek back, they run into Daniel. He's lost his Charlotte in a slipstream of time and is bereft. He spends the rest of the ep babbling.

Marching through the jungle, they come upon a weird scene: Woman w/a bag over her head. Guy dead at her feet. Two other people taking her away.

Sawyer steps into the mess and the two would-be kidnappers are killed.

Woman is Amy, deadude is her husband. She tells the Losties that they must bury the bodies and take her husband, Paul, with them. They do.

And as they walk through the perimeter fence, all but Amy are zapped. She wore her earplugs. heh.

She's also pregnant. And we all know what that means on Craphole Isle.

Sawyer wakes up and is being tended to by Horace Goodspeed. The guy who delivered Ben Linus. The guy who build Jacob's cabin. Mathematician for Dharma.

Sawyer vamps with the truth, telling Horace that he and his peeps were lost at sea, that they're a scientific expediition looking for the Black Rock (trading ship we saw grounded a zillion episodes ago).

Horace says they're outta there on the next sub. Richard then pays a visit and is angry at Horace of the breakage of some apparent truce between the Hostiles and the Dharmies. Sawyer explains what really happened -- that the killing was accidental, or at least an action of self-defense -- and he freaks Richard out by knowing things about him that are out-of-time. Like the burial of the bomb, Jughead.

Richard is appeased and Horace agrees to let the Losties stay to wait for Locke.

We zip ahead three years (actually, the ep has been zipping back and forth along these three-year intervals for the whole hour). Sawyer has been accepted as LeFleur, his nom de plume, for quite some time now and has been given a job as security officer for Dharma. Jin, too. And Juliet is a mechanic (is there anything this gal can't do?).

Amy is in labor. She delivers a healthy (!!) baby boy. Everyone celebrates.

Sawyer has been living with Juliet for the three years of waiting. He professes to be completely over Kate when, ZING! the phone rings in the middle of the night. Sawyer takes off...

I don't think Amy was pregannt when they found her. SU thought so too and we rewound it to see. I like Sawyer better as Sawyer and not the nicey nice guy he appears to have become. Still sarcastic as ever at least. Where is Sayid? I didn't catch the part about the guy delivering Ben also. When SU saw Sayer and Juliette together he said oh yea he got the blinde too! So typical of my SU.

LOL'ed at Sawyer referring to Richard's "guyliner."

And thought it was cute that Daniel saw Charlotte as a child. But does that timeline match her story of being there before??

Thought this was funny, from the ew.com recap:
(BTW: How much was Juliet the ideal mate last night? She cooks! She cleans! She fixes cars and executes impromptu caesarean sections and covers your back in a gunfight and never, ever contradicts her hubby in public. Whattawoman!)
I totally missed the Richard eyeliner joke.

After really liking the past few episodes I did not like this one at all....... until that very last scene when Sawyer sees Kate.

My first thought was "Michelle's not dead". Sorry, you must be a 24 fan to get it. ;)

Very confusing ep. I don't do well when they zap back and forth.

I don't get the Horace delivers Ben thing, either. Someone 'splain to me. Yeah, Amy wasn't pregnant when Sawyer et all first found her. This part was in the 3 years ahead. Horace is the dad. He's upset because he found Paul's cross in the back of Amy's drawer. He thinks she can't love him because it's only been 3 years since Paul died. Hence, the Sawyer about Kate monologue. Anyone else expect to hear someone singing, "I'm My Own Grandpa"?

Horace and a woman, not Amy, came upon Ben's mom and dad while Mom was having Ben the baby in the woods in a Ben-centric episode a season or two ago. Ben's mom died during delivery and Horace then brought Ben and dad to the island.

In the 3 years ealier scenes it was aboiut 1974, and little Charlotte looked about 2 or 3, so it would make her about 38ish now. I guess her current time character coulod be 38ish, but I would have guessed younger.

Apparently, according to the ew.com recap, the timing isn't right for Charlotte. Sawyer said the were in New Otherton in 1974, which was when Daniel saw young Charlotte. Supposedly in a previous ep (last season?) Ben said Charlotte was born in 1979.

Here:

One other odd glitch, intentional or otherwise. Last season, we learned from Ben that Charlotte was born on July 2, 1979. But there she was, looking 3-4ish, skipping across the Dharma playfield and waving at scary man Faraday. What up? Is time changing? Or just the writers doing some of their ''course correcting'' due to the needs of their story?

I'm a little confused as well. But when they found the woman and dead guy Sawyer asked Faraday if they should interfer, and faraday said it didn't matter now because they were now in that time forever. I thought it meant that they were now stuck in that time and their being there would change everything anyway. :confused:

I loved the part when the two security guys had to wake up sawyer. I laughed out loud!

So maybe that wasn't little Charlotte. Daniel was just assuming it was her, wasn't he? Maybe Charlotte has an older sis or something??

wonder how long we'll have to wait for the answer to this little riddle...

I think it did, because remember how she had a memory of him telling her not to come back to the island or she will die? That was strange!

And I definitely like Sawyer better as himself, not LeFleur. I think that his romance with Juliet is sweet though :)

Was I the only one whose network had a problem where the Wheel of Fortune remained frozen on the screen for the first half of LOST? I had to watch it online last night.
