I love how this show comes up with new puzzles/questions piled on top of an already massive pile of questions. What did Rose really mean by "you can let go now Jack".
I think she simply meant that he could let go of her hand. As I remember it, it is the opposite of what happened when 815 crashed (Rose was scared and held Jack's hand).
Did Juliette really set off the bomb or was it just a flash coinciding with a jump through time?
I don't see how she didn't. She said she set it off (and it worked), and I don't see why they would skip back to the present for no reason (unless Jacob somehow brought them back). I also don't see how the alternate timeline came to be if she didn't set it off and change things as a result.
I didn't love the episode, but it was good. While some questions were answered, it opened up more questions about the smoke monster, the other Others, The Temple and what exactly happened when Juliet set off the bomb.
Does anybody notice that the real Locke looks slightly different than when Smokie imitates Locke?
I think that Jacob had set up Sayid to die before anybody even boarded the plane to return to the island. I'm sure that the note said something like "Make sure Sayid dies". It all seemed to coincidental that Jacob gave Hurley the guitar case, then told him to take it to the Temple. Now the question is, is that actually Sayid? I've always subscribed to the theory that "dead is dead", so I get the feeling that Jacob has taken over his body or something.
I wonder if we will see the Others show up off the island in the 2004 timeline? I get the feeling that Juliet and maybe some of the rest of them will show up in people's lives. I also get the feeling that Jack and Claire will realize that they are half-siblings.
