LOST: "The Other Woman"

The first blah episode of what's been, you have to admit, a kickass season. Disappointing to get a traditional, old-timey "flashback" episode after all these mind-bending flashforwards and that SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE stuck-in-time tribute last week.

Most of what happened, and what we learned, felt totally disposable, except: (a) that guy from SPANKING THE MONKEY and the creepy redhead with blue eyes are NOT planning to gas the island, (b) they're really working for grandpa Caleb from THE OC, and (c) Jack and Juliet kiss, which, I have to be honest, I can't remember if they’ve ever done before or not. Whatever. Feels like they had.

Anyway, a big chase without much payoff, unless you like seeing Juliet in lots of different outfits, then, great, this one's for you.
