Lost - The Undersea World Of Charlie Pace

(Episode: Greatest Hits. Spoilers ahead.)

I'm guessing that the question of Charlie's survival won't be answered until next season, in the spirit of the Swan Hatch implosion cliffhanger. Pleeeeeease let us learn something about these two women and the Looking Glass station next week.

Ben told Juliet the hatch was flooded - either he was lying, or he was misinformed. (Or Juliet is lying to the Lostaways for some reason.) My bet is on Ben lying.

The flashbacks are a good way to wrap up Charlie's backstory in case they kill him off - and if not, they raise a couple of puzzle pieces. Sayid's friend Nadia was the mugging victim, and a child calls Desmond's name at the swimming pool scene.

The group wants Jack to be the leader, but he's still gotta learn how to consult people. Fortunately Sayid is there to impose his consultation.

Alex is most likely looking for Locke, and I'm betting she knows where to find him - that she knows about the DHARMA mass grave, and figures that Locke's suspicious non-return might mean that Ben decided to add a new occupant. I'm hoping he finds her next week, and that they both go to Jacob to look for answers. That's what I would do. But then again, I would have explored the freakin' island more thoroughly than these clowns.

There gonna milk this series for three more seasons, and promise a "shocking finale." I await with anticipation and dread.

Update: Here are the lyrics to "Wonderwall," the song that Charlie sings as a street musician in this episode and in Desmond's vision in Flashes Before Your Eyes. Note thr refrain:

I said maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all
You're my wonderwall
