The story switches back to Team Smokie this week as his small army makes camp and prepares for their eventual freedom. Sawyer is tasked with a mission on Hydra Island while Claire sorts out her anger issues with Kate. "Recon" doesn't feature the mind blowing narrative twists of the last few weeks but it does give us a glimpse at Sawyer's true intentions and the Man in Black's plan for getting off the island. There is much needed setup in "Recon" as the pieces are moving into position and the final chapter of the story quickly approaches.
It was great to finally get a little back story on the Man in Black, even if it was vague. The not so subtle comparison of his relationship with his crazy mother and Claire's situation with Aaron will give fans plenty to speculate about over the course of the next week. I've never bought into the "Aaron is this or that person all-grown-up on the island" theories, but this comparison does remind us that Claire's son is important. Something that we've been led to believe ever since Claire's visit with a psychic way back in Season 1. It will be interesting to see if these similarities between Aaron and Smokie evolve into anything more.
