I am so confused.
Last night we learned that Sawyer, Juliet, Ghostbuster dude Miles, brilliant dude Daniel and Jin are hanging with their homeys – aka Dharma Initiative people – in 1974.
But that confuses me, because Daniel caught a glimpse of a little redheaded girl who was obviously Red, aka Charlotte. Even if she was 3 years old there, that would make her in her late 30s now. Unless, of course, I’m not supposed to be thinking in 2009 terms. Didn’t the plane crash happen in 2005? Is 2005 the “present” to those on the island? What happened to the Oceanic 6? Did they lose a couple years when they returned to civilization?
Combine that confusion with all of that time skipping last night – “three years ago” versus “three years later” – and I’m thoroughly confused. It hurts my head to think about it. Ow.
I did like how Sawyer – excuse me – James LaFleur – is in charge of the compound’s security. That’s rich! And what is CTU’s Michelle Dessler doing working for Dharma? And why does that guy Horace look so familiar? Haven’t they already had some kind of run in with Horace (maybe as a corpse)?
And what was the reference to the hostile indigenous people? Since when are The Others indigenous to the island?
Most importantly, will Sawyer dump Juliet now that Kate has returned?
