Sun is a Liar
By Lakshmi Kalimireddi

Season 3, Episode 2

In the opening scene, a very young Sun breaks a glass ballerina and blames the maid, who in turn is fired by her father. So begin the lies.

Fast forward to 2004, when Sun’s father catches her cheating on her husband with her English teacher! Without an explanation, Sun’s dad order Jin to kill Sun’s lover.

Sun knows her teacher is toast. Jin goes to kick some ass, but wusses out and instead tells him to peace out of the country. Is it me or did Jin just get hotter? But wait, just as Jin's leaving the scene, plop goes the body of the mister mistress, right on Jin's car. Suicide of shame.

Back on the island, Sun, Sayid and Jin sail over to the dock where The Others brought the kidnapped three. Sun lies to Jin about the fact that Sayid is trying to lure the others into a trap with a mini-bonfire. Unfortunately, it turns out Jin DOES know some English.

The men get the guns and tell Sun to hide in the boat like a little girl. But because The Others want the boat, they bypass the guys and land portside. Sun, finding a gun, shoots a female Other. As The Others take the wheel, Sun falls off the boat and Jin brings her to shore.

Sawyer and Kate are pulled out of the cages and put to work chopping rocks. While Kate's at work, Alex reappears behind the bushes to ask her about the boy in the cage Sawyer met. We also learn Kate's dress is actually Alex's.

So what's going on here? Was the boy Alex's beau? Why was he in a cage? Why'd they give Kate the dress? Why'd they give her Alex's dress? Does it have to do with why the boy was in the cage?

After being told repeatedly that Sawyer was not allowed to speak to Kate, he decides to pucker up and plant a big one on her. Having the hots for Kate wasn't his only motive. Turns out he wanted to get his butt whooped so he could get a feel for which of The Others was strong, weak, fast, slow, etc. As he's explaining his escape plan, guess who's sitting in front of a security monitor with a bucket of popcorn and twirling his evil mustache? Yes, Ben, minus the popcorn and mustache. I have to mention, before Sawyer was stunned silly, he was very action hero hot.

Finally, to assure Jack that The Others do in fact know how to get off the island and they do have control, Ben tells Jack what happened since Flight 815 crashed. Of course the most unbelievable event would be the Red Sox's pennant win. I would have laughed too, Jack.
