I may be missing something, was the dead guy during Miles audition working for Widmore? So Widmore was behind the fake wreckage?

well as soon as Naomi mentioned widmore paying Miles 1.6mil i knew where they was going with that amount

they felt the need to reinforce it later on in the show

btw, i didn't recognize either of the writers names of this episode

Yipes, easy there. I said I may be missing something. I thought it was still up in the air between who it was.

This was kind of a let down if you ask me. It kept the story moving, but that seemed to be the entire purpose.

Actually, we didn't know for sure it was Widmore. It could have been Linus.

This episode confimed it was Widmore.

Whatever Happened, Happened.

Good call. Well, mostly.

What? No it didn't. It just said that dead dude was delivering a package with photos of dug-up graves and a purchase order for a plane. Nowhere did it say that Widmore was on the purchase order. Why would corpse have to deliver the purchase order to the guy who filled it out?

Likelier that Ben purchased the plane, corpse gets the evidence, tries to deliver it to Widmore, gets killed by Ben's men, Ben steals the package (and later uses it as 'evidence' to convince Locke that Widmore's men are evil) and body gets delivered to Miles.

Or, your way.

But we still don't have confirmation on anything.

TESB stuff and end reveal were good.

My favorite lines:
Her heart was in the right place.
Where was her head?

Isn't it weird how much Jack and Kate, moreso Jack, have taken a back seat the last few episodes? He's hardly done anything since getting back to the island.

Makes me think something big is going to happen with him to either close the season, or he'll have an important arc next season. It just seems like they're trying to get him off the viewer's minds and not shoving him down our throats, before throwing him back in our face.

Did anyone get a good look at the Egyptian references written on the chalkboard during the scene with Jack and Ben's dad? There were a bunch of them, before Jack erased the board.

Evangeline Lilly is hot and all but, I hate Kate! I wish she didn't come back to the island.

This is a very roundabout question and probably not good for the story, but why is sawyer and juliet so loyal to the dharma people. They are others and im sure richard would take them right in if they left dharma. I know its better for the story to have them switching sides later on but sawyer acts like he can not be exposed yet he has a fallback. and where was sayid when sawyer and kate went to the others. Whats he rooming the jungle?

There's more right after that, when it goes to a long shot. I paused it on my DVR.

Thanks for the screencaps. I thought I saw writing referring to "...god of..." something as well.

No, its a quote from a show. I want to say Sarah Silverman.

I wonder if Chang is using human corpses now as guinea pigs in his time travel experiments. Something is gonna happen soon to trigger this incident to occur (probably caused by one of the O6) and then Pierre will have to leave his happy home and perhaps stay in the Orchid station while his wife and kid leave the island.

But I wouldn't want to speculate...

Spoiler:
Ben kills Penny!

They're loyal because they have a good life there.

Enjoyable episode. It really seem like the O6 are the cause of the incident. And it's probably Super Kate being Dumb Kate.

I, personally, prefer to think of the title as:

Some Like I Thoth.

Thoth was, of course, one of the more powerful Egyptian gods. Chiefly, he was a force of balance, making sure that neither good nor evil became too powerful over one another.

Have we seen the dad that Miles gave the fake reading for? He looked familiar to me, was that story on before just told at a different angle or something?

I think Hurley, Charlie & Miles could spin-off into a sitcom.

Hurley: Dude.
Charlie: Brilliant!
Miles: You're an idiot.
