So it begins...

Last night Lost returned in full force. We got a few answers and of course we got more questions. All in all though, it looks like the shortened season 4 (unless the strike ends soon) will provide plenty of action.

The best scenes of the entire episode were the ones with Jacob's shack. I had no idea that we'd see Jacob again this soon. While still providing plenty of mystery, they threw us another curveball with what looks to be Jack's dad, Cristian Shepard, sitting in the rocking chair of the shack. So is he Jacob? Can Jacob take different forms? Can the shack move locations? The other big mystery about the shack is the eye that pops up in the window. Initially, I thought it was Locke's, but now I'm not so sure.

Seeing Charlie again interacting with Hurley was great. He said that he is dead, so how can Hurley talk with him. Is Hurley just imagining him? But the other patient saw him as well. As usual with this show, everything you see just raises more questions.

Now, rescue has arrived on the island...or has it. From previews, it doesn't look like Naomi's people are there to rescue anyone. I guess will just have to wait and see where that goes. We do know that Jack, Kate and Hurley get off the island. Hurley said he is one of the Oceanic 6, so we can assume that six people make it off. But who are the other three and what happens to everyone else. It seems that Jack and Hurley were told not to talk about the island or the ones left behind because in both their flashforwards they talk about not lying or telling what they know.

Man, this show is awesome!
