'We're Looking at a Different Sawyer'

Chris Seay weighs in on the meaning of Tuesday's episode of LOST, "Recon"

Chris Seay, author of The Gospel According to Lost, chimes in on the developments in Tuesday's episode of LOST. (SPOILERS AHEAD) He says "we didn't learn a great deal in this episode," other than some of Sawyer's flash-sideways story. "All of our characters so far have been more 'redemptive' in their flash-sideways narrative," Seay says. "Sawyer seems to be a good guy, except for this hatred for the true Sawyer, the man responsible for the death of his mother and father. His desire for revenge may be what ultimately undoes him." Seay adds that "the most exciting reveal" for him actually came just after the episode ended, when it was announced that next week's show will focus on Richard Alpert's back story.


Thanks, Chris, for your insightful and interesting commentaries. Our family watches Lost every week and we look forward to watching your analysis. Keep up the good work! Never thought about the possible "Richard"-"Joseph" connection.....interesting.....

Actually Chris, Nestor Carbonell (Richard Alpert) doesn't wear eyeliner. His eyelashes are just naturally very dark. It is possible however that the Lost writers will decide to use this in the show.
