Lost: The Substitute- Preview

I have a feeling that tonight’s episode will be the best episode of season six so far. It is Locke-centric – I feel that should be enough proof. I was over at a friend’s house and when he was setting his recording for this episode, I saw the list of actors in the synopsis and I was surprised to see one name. I won’t ruin who it was, but they have had much aur time on Lost and didn’t expect to see them again.

The title (The Substitute) may refer to the 1996 film of the same. I read a summary of the film on wiki and the only connection between the two I could see was that the both involve people going undercover to attack someone. The title likely also refer to the idea that Locke’s dead body was used as a “proxy” or substitute for Christian Shepherd’s dead body on Ajira 316. Or that Locke’s body is now a substitute body for the Man-In-Black. Maybe we will find out that Christian Shepherd was also a substitute body for the Man-In-Black, just a crazy theory.

Well, we will find out in a matter of hours just what this episode is about.

Check back late tonight or early tomorrow to read my recap of “The Substitute” (The Lost episode, not the film from 1996).

Fringe: The Bishop Revival

I liked the documentary style at beginning of this episode, that was kind of a cool touch. I guess we did learn quite a bit about the Bishop family in this episode. Like that Walter’s father was a spy for the allies in Germany and that some German dude he worked with lived for more than a hundred years for some reason. I think Walter probably knows that that man was super old, he said something about it earlier in the episode. I thought the scene with the German guy in the restaurant was a little silly especially when the woman asks him if he put bubbling cinnamon in his tea and he’s like “Yay, somzing like zat.”

Walter finds out who was releasing the toxins by a molecular seahorse like the one in the promos. I wonder if this was done by the writers just to male it seem that they had planned on this happening.

And I was kind of surprised that Walter killed a man in this episode. He did not show a sign of regret and he was not punished.

Next week looks awesome! This episode will be the winter finale, so obviously it will deal with parallel dimensions again, and parallel dimensions are fun! (For me at least, because I am a nerd.) It’s called Jacksonville.
