Well, that happened.
My only thought for the moment: Mr. Irish seemed to be waking up and going about his morning routine when the hatch'splosion sent his record a'skippin'. But we know that the castaways blew the lid off in the middle of the night. From this, you can only assume that dude was getting up for his security shift, monitoring the whole island with his wacky Apple IIe-style computrons while everybody sleeps. Is he the one controlling the security system? What's the quarrantine/injections for? And why's dude keep calling Jack 'brother'?
And even though we knew Jack cured his (future) wife's legs, we didn't know how "miraculous" it was -- almost as miraculous as a certain islander's recovery. Makes you wonder why Jack doesn't believe
a little more than he does...
To be continued, obv.
