LOST: The Whole Truth

"Of course if I was one of them - these people that you seem to think are your enemies - what would I do? There’d be no balloon. So I’d draw a map to a real secluded place, like a cave or some underbrush, good place for a trap. An ambush. And when your friends got there a bunch of my people would be waiting for them. And then they’d use them to trade for me. I guess it’s a good thing I’m not one of them, huh? You guys got any milk?

This is my favourite episode ending in the whole show (and that’s seriously saying something). It’s such a subtle way to deliver an unexpected cliffhanger. Here we have Henry Gale, mousy little harmless and chatty Henry Gale, sitting down to his “reward for good behaviour” breakfast with Jack and Locke. And whaddaya know, he lets slip that he drew up a map for Ana Lucia so that she could go out and prove or disprove his alibi once and for all, only she didn’t bother to tell Jack and Locke that. Hmm. It sure would be too bad if Ana Lucia and company went traipsing off into the jungle and got caught by The Others, wouldn’t it? All of a sudden, Henry Gale just became terrifying. Bruised and battered Henry Gale just became dangerous. And all he had to do was muse nonchalantly about ambushes and hostage situations whilst munching on dry breakfast cereal. Fucking brilliant.
