This is why I love Lost.

(Spoiler alerts for those not up to the exact current episode [us])

So this past week the oceanic six returned to the island. In doing so lost answered the main question it had going for it this season. That is, how do the oceanic six get back to the island? But in typical (frustrating, yet entertaining) lost fashion, they start all new questions. Questions like WHY did they go back to the island. Why in 36 hours did 3 of 6 go from definitively not going back, to turning up on a plane at the airport? Also what happened to Aaron???
But the main reason I like lost is its references. The title of this latest episode is 316. Well, ok 316 is the flight number of Ajira airways on its way to guam—the flight that the oceanic six (five), plus Ben and Locke are on. But look a little closer, draw some connections. John 3:16. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John Locke. And then Locke’s ‘suicide’ note (yea I don’t believe it was suicide…), “I wish you had believed me." This is GREAT writing!
Oh and everyone’s gotta love the guest appearance of Frank Lepidus. "We're not going to Guam, are we?"
