Another poll questions for the record books!  The majority of the viewing audience believe that the Kwon-candidate is Jin, but Sun and Ji-Yeon were still in the running.  Make sure to vote in this week's new poll!

What a great episode!  The last 15 minutes rocked my socks off.  It looks like the war we've waited so long for has finally begun.  While the episode was exciting, we didn't get very many answers this week, but let's see what answers we got this week.

4. Flocke – As we know from Season 5, Episode 16 (The Incident) the Locke that returns to the island, is not the Locke that left the island. Commonly referred to as “Flocke” (fake + Locke = Flocke), he convinces Ben to kill Jacob, but not before Jacob recognizes Flocke as his nemesis. Who is this Flocke and how did he shift shape to look like John Locke? We know he doesn’t just take over Locke’s body, as Illana’s crew is hauling the body all over the island in search of Richard Alpert, so how exactly does he become John Locke? And does Jacob’s nemesis choose John Locke anyway? For how long has he been John Locke? Many fans postulate that Locke’s been Flocke since Ben shot him in Season 3, Episode 22 (Through the Looking Glass) , but we still don’t know for certain! Surely Flocke related mysteries will be resolved in Season 6.

So, Dogen was keeping Flocke out of the Temple.  Strange.

29. Why did the Others choose Cindy and the children? – Cindy was a flight attendant on Oceanic 815 and a survivor of the crash with the other Tailies. She went missing when the Tailies were journeying to the beach camp along with Zach and Emma. We later learn that they’ve been living with the Others and Cindy and Emma come to talk to Jack when he’s captured at the Hydra station in Season 3, Episode 9 (Stranger in a Strange Land). Jack asks Cindy why she’s with the Others. She tells him that they are there “to watch”. So why Cindy, Emma, and Zach out of all of the survivors? What’s Cindy’s connection to the Others and did it exist before the crash?

We saw Cindy and the kids again, but still no answers as to why they were chosen.

While my questions weren't answered, we did get to see a lot of Sayid, post-strange-water-bath.  For my total episode recap, click here.

I enjoyed this week's episode, but I wish we would have learned a bit more.  We've only got a few more episodes left for goodness sake!
