This episode, let me just say, is by far one of the best episodes of the series, possibly the best I've seen (I'm now about a third of the way through Season 6). It is just so well done on so many levels. The plot is great, the dialogue is well-written, the actors dynamic.
Most of all, though, is that ending scene. The moment when the audience realizes Locke is in a wheelchair, only to then walk again after the crash, is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in film, and has brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion. The music makes the moment heavenly.
Enough about that phenomenal episode, though (which I even have a copy of the Screenplay of!). As the holiday season draws closer, the question of solidarity to the spirit of this time is on all our minds. Although the pressures of the most commercial time in all of the year may be hard, the season is truly beautiful if these are looked beyond. Plus, who doesn't love presents?
Anyways, though, I'm going to get back to my online musings. Goodnight!
