  • Complicated...

    Jack is worried about Sayid and Desmond because they haven't heard from the freighter yet even though they left a day ago so Daniel tries to explain something really strange to Jack. Desmond travels in time to 1996 and forgets who Sayid is and why he's on the island so he gets help from Daniel. Daniel tells him he needs a constant. Something that is powerful and means alot to him which he can be able to tell the difference of time with. I know it's complicated. So Desmond uses Penny as his constant. The scenes between Penny and Desmond are very intense. I liked them. At the end of the episode we discover that Daniel is also going through time and he needs Desmond to be his constant. Terrific episode. Favorite character from this episode : Penny !!! She's so pretty. Good stuff.
