Definitely a "wow" episode of "Lost" last night. We actually got some answers - where Ben came from, how Dharma and the Others are related, and what Jack and Juliet are up to besides making moony eyes at each other. And did anyone else think last night was scary in a "Blair Witch Project" kind of way, but better?
"Help Me" - those were the two words that, as producers had teased, would change Locke's course on the island forever. And if by changing course they meant dying, then OK. But is he really dead, just as I was starting to like him? Or will Jacob/the island save him?
The scene in Jacob's cabin was pretty defining. At the office this morning there was talk of seeing a glimpse of Jacob just after Ben is thrown from the chair and we were forced to go online to check it out. Sure enough, he is there. Check your DVR if you don't believe me.
If the next two episodes are this good, I might be able to extend my loyalty to February '08, which is when the next season is slated to start.

UPDATE: Hey! I totally did not have the day off. I worked 12 hours today. Admittedly, 12 hours hanging in the sun in the southeast corner of the state, but it was on the clock.
