Regarding Tonight’s Episode: The Last Recruit (May 4th 2010)
If you have not seen this episode, do not read this, as it contains SPOILERS.
I’m skeptical as to how Jack and the gang were able to escape the sinking sub. If there was water pouring in at an increasing pressure, they would not be able to swim fast enough to get out. Isn’t that kinda why Charlie couldn’t swim out the busted window on the (pearl?) station? They might have been able to swim out if the water was pouring in while the sub was surfaced and somehow not sinking, but it doesn’t seem likely that they could have achieved it the way it was presented. Also, wouldn’t the explosion cause fire to fill the submarine since it’s pressurized and all the interior hatches were open?
What were the exact words that Sayid said to Jack before running away? It seemed like he knew Jack was necessarily the one to go to Desmond. I also got the impression he was telling Jack that he was the Candidate. Then again, I didn’t really hear what he said, so I may be way off.
How did MIB know so much about contemporary technology, such as the C4 and digital watch? How did he know how to make a time bomb out of it? Can we speculate that the smokey flash behavior means he can read people’s minds? Is this how he knows about so many things, or is it because he comes from the future? Maybe he has been shown what he needs to know in order for an end result to occur? Hopefully we find out in the < 3 hours of content remaining 😀
We know now that the ocean doesn’t magically kill him somehow. Maybe he can’t swim, though, and is just afraid to go into the water? It wasn’t exactly clear how deep that water under the dock was… Maybe there is no reason to think the water has anything to do with him being trapped. In any case, he clearly showed himself to be evil in tonight’s episode. His agenda is almost fully revealed, it would appear.
