Obviously, spoilers for Remnants.

Finally I see the episode! And the boy will attest that I figured out Sloane was going to kill Lindsey in the first half of the episode. Thank god Lindsey's dead! He was such an annoying character because he was an uncharming rat bastard (whereas I think Sark and Sloane are charming rat bastards), like the FBI snitch guy in S1 or like Umbridge in OotP.

I averted my eyes during the Sydney and Will sex. Still do not like Will. Wanted to slap Sydney when she said she hated Lauren, because I seem to have developed a very strong attachment to the character. I think it's because I don't like S/V and I felt bad for her because it was pretty obvious she had all the odds stacked against her no matter what. Besides, I'm a sucker for the cool heroine who hides her emotions (alpha female as opposed to alpha male?). Plus, the whole following the rules to a fault thing reminds me of me. And Sydney is so transparently good.

I did get all teary with the reunion though, and I love how Will pulled a gun on her.

Loved Jack slugging out Lindsey.

Really loved Jack telling off Vaughn for not making a clean break with Sydney, because that's what I've been yelling at the TV the entire time. I think Jack and I have the same relationship philosophy. And was wickedly amused by Vaughn, caught between Sydney and Jack. Tee. Serves him right.

Rambaldi is so still alive. I've been saying this since they found the 400 year old orchid (or however old). I think it would be funny if Sloane were Rambaldi the entire time, because really, how is Sloane not the mastermind of the world? Plus, he could look like anyone thanks to the doubling thing! Well, maybe. But I still think he's alive and roaming the earth.

No Lauren =(.

Have I mentioned how much I loved Jack telling off Vaughn?

Ok, I'm quite new to the fandom, and haven't seen very much of seasons two and three or understood what I have seen, but it was my impression that it was heavily implied during the first season that the descendant of Rambaldi to whom Sydney took the clock to be fixed, who was then killed by a sniper, was in fact Rambaldi himself.

Of course, they could conveniently forget that little bit and we could both turn out to be right.

I don't think it was Rambaldi...

...but a man that Rambaldi had given the gift of immortality (until that moment of course). Because if I recall correctly this man had existed at Rambaldi's time but was not, according to the documents they have from the time period, the same man. That could have been false information of course and that man could've been Rambaldi. Either way, I don't think the writers forgot. Unlike "The X-Files," from what I understand, J. J. Abrams has a pretty clear idea of the entire myth-arc of the series from the start and nothing has lead me to believe yet that he would have such a monumental thing happen (if that was Rambaldi) and then forget it. The fact that the man was a clockmaker and...[not sure how much you've seen...there are some vague spoilers to already aired eps of the third season, so skip if you don't want to be spoiled]

Sydney is now trying to rediscover lost time that seems to be involved somehow to the Rambaldi device makes the idea that they forgot that occurence even less likely.

You are absolutely correct. It was the original clockmaker, not Rambaldi himself. I accept my mistake and can provide only the excuse that I watched the episode in Rah's bedroom and may have had other things on my mind.

I've followed J. J. Abrams pretty closely for a while now and it seems that he has a very clear idea as to where the arc will end up, particularly the Rambaldi one. From the innuendo I've gathered from a variety of interviews, some things such as the events of Phase One probably weren't planned from the very beginning, but he planned well enough in advance of that episode that he once it happened, he knew exactly where he was going. In fact there were articles the week that Phase One aired where Abrams says (paraphrasing) "If you think that was huge, you won't believe what happens in the season finale! It is earth shattering!" Since the season was only just around half over at that point, the two year gap must have been well-planned in advance. I think all of this will become more clear when all the pieces of the puzzle are put together, because for the time being I have confidence in J. J. Abrams, based on his extremely insightful and forthcoming interviews.
