A Moment of Greatness

I was pleasantly surprised with Lost this week.

At first I was thinking, "Oh great, an episode about Charlie. Bo-ring!" But it was actually very pleasant and reminded me some of the reasons he started as a great character on the show.

And so the show began to build as an elegy to the man from Manchester, ready to sacrifice his life for the survivors. Down he goes, ready to find the switch...

...and then, huh? Underwater babes with guns? Wicked!

That was a great ending. I'm definitely ready and excited for the finale. (Just don't kill off Bernard, please.)

Yeah, I was assuming he was dead from the get-go. Everything was pointing that way, and it would have been a natural ending for his storyline. Not that he's exactly safe right now either, though.

I was pretty slack-jawed for the last 10 minutes... from the argument with Desmond about who would actually jump in (no, Desmond, don't do it! This whole show is about you and Penny!) to the surprising babes with guns moment. Now I don't know what to think about whether Charlie lives or dies. I was so sure he was a goner, but I really like the way the episode turned out.

But beware - Bernard is totally on my deathwatch list for next week. I could be wrong, but I don't think he and Rose will both survive. Sadly, I think also Sayid or Sawyer might bite it, which would make me very very very upset.
