Recap: "Jughead"

So who or what is "Jughead" then? By the end of the hour, we've found out, but it's perhaps the least fulfilling of the many revelations of this fast-paced episode, which contained far fewer "flashes" than the previous episode. Desmond begins his quest to find Daniel Faraday's mother - whatever her name is - and in the process learns more about her time-hopping physicist son, and the company he keeps.


Poor, crazed Desmond is running around a fishing village looking for Efren Salonga, who turns out to be a doctor, and in short order, he delivers Des and Penny's bouncing baby boy! Newborn babies always look too big on TV - for obvious reasons, I guess. (Aside: A banner in this scene reads "MABUHAY," which is Tagalog for "Welcome," so I used my sophisticated detective skills to surmise that DesPen are in the Philippines.)

We flash-forward approximately two years to Des having a tender moment with his boy on the deck of the boat, telling him about "a very special island, I left it a long time ago, never thought I'd see it again... it's called Great Britain." Heh. Yes, Desmond has decided to take Daniel's subconscious advice and go find Mama Faraday in Oxford, England, evil father-in-law be damned. "Everyone on that island is in danger, and I'm the only one that can help them," he tells Pen nobly.

Penny is all, "Fine. Whatever. But I am not funding a second rescue mission - we just dismantled the Antarctic research station and sent those Portuguese guys home," or something to that effect — "so promise me that you'll never go back to that island again." "Why in God's name would I want to go back there?" he foreshadows.
