So in approximately thirty minutes I will begin composing a five page paper that I hope to have completed in 3-4 hours time. I’m confident that if I really focus, I can do this. After this time I will then begin the tumultuous task of outlining the eight page paper that is due Friday, that I haven’t begun at all! Basically, I have to do this. I will not be able to sleep until I do. Simple as that. So if I breathe green fire at you tomorrow, it’s not me, it’s the Amp talking.
On to more interesting things….
My first thought in this episode, “Holy Shit! Ben is Harry Potter!!” With the glasses and everything. The producers were definitely playing on some fan fodder there. Even in the beginning of the episode I thought to myself, Ben is such an egomaniac! By the end of the episode I was like, “Oh my God! Ben’s fucking nutters!” He gassed his people. He holocausted his entire world! Who can do that?? How could he stay in the van while his father was dying?!?! What a sick fuck!! I’m glad we are finally getting some clear connections though. I also love that Ben’s been proven a liar to the viewers. Born on the island my ass. And Locke was especially kick ass in this episode – beating the hell out of eye patch guy and whatnot.
Back to our Losties. I hate Jack. Nay, loathe him. I like Juliet way more that Jack and his jears. I love Sayid. Love, love, love, love, love, love, love him. Kate thinks he’s going to die. I hope she is undeniably incorrect. (Apparently the actor hates the show. eh.) Though speaking of dying, it seems as though Ben would have the newly dubbed bad ass die. And all because he heard Jacob. So, it makes you wonder, can Ben not hear Jacob? I mean, why did he not hear what he said to Locke?? If he can see and speak to him? Though, as this episode shows, Ben will do pretty much anything. Crazy git.
As for Richard. Uhm…what? You’ve been hotty mchotterson for the last twenty years? Something just isn’t right about that. Also, I’m eagerly awaiting the return of Ben’s mother.
Now I’m off to the world of academia, energy drinks and baggy eyes.
