Maybe it's just because it had an unusually high Ben Linus/Everybody Else ratio, but last week's episode, "Dr. Linus,"
was (in my humble opinion) pretty awesome. To briefly recap: In the
Sideways Universe (also known as "Degrassi High: The Alternate
Timeline"), disgruntled history teacher Ben -- initially egged on by
Sideways Locke, no less -- tries to blackmail Principal Reynolds in
order to claw his way to the top, but aborts mission when it threatens
to ruin Alex's shot at getting into college. Meanwhile, back on the
Island, Ilana almost executes Ben for murdering Jacob but relents when
when Ben dazzles her with #LinusTears. Also, Richard Alpert and Jack
have a dynamite tete-a-tete in the Black Rock, where Richard claims
that Jacob "gave him a gift" by touching him, and that gift is
apparently some kind of immortality. And let's not forget the huggy
reunion back at the beach camp, as Smokey and non-Smokey teams continue to shape up.Some questions to ponder before we return to traverse the mystery-slick precipice of Lostness. Could Frank Lapidus be a Candidate?
