I thought that Sun's expression(s) at the end were about nine million emotions playing across her face at once - kind of like the way Edie Falco does it on The Sopranos. Hard to tell just what
she might have been thinking. But I'd like to believe that she was telling Jin the truth, and that she never slept with anyone else, including Hot Bald English Teacher.
Henry Gale is the most interesting character on this show, now. We need him to have a whole episode just with himself, Desmond, and Danielle. Craphole Island Nirvana!
Sawyer complaining that there wasn't enough sex in "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" was priceless. Obviously, what he needs is Judy Blume's later book, "Forever." As a young girl, I was scarred for life by that scene where the girl names her boyfriend's penis "Ralph"...
Hooray for More Assertive Locke's return! He doesn't need to ask Jack if Ana-Lucia should interrogate the prisoner. He doesn't have to ask Jack if he can shave while Jack showers. He doesn't have to ask Jack for permission to look at Jack's penis. And in retaliation, Jack gets assertive, too: he decides he doesn't have to ask permission to take Henry out for a bowl of Dharma-Os (love it!).
As for what Charlie and Sayid were building, they had some very tall bamboo stalks there, and they had a framework going. The framework wasn't tight enough to be a holding area of any kind (a prison for Henry?), unless they were going to add to it. So I'm thinking fortress, or at least a suitable shelter. I don't think this has anything to do with Eko's church-building, which seems to be a solitary project.
As for Charlie knowing about Henry and not blabbing it all around, I really think he's turned into Darth Hoodie. I think that Claire's rejection has changed him, and that there will be many more surprising and uncharacteristic behaviors from him. Having a gun and not making a fuss about it (my impression was that it was a secret even from Sayid) is not very pre-Claire-dump Charlie. So, maybe this post-Claire-dump Charlie - the Charlie who is willing to faux-abduct Sun - can keep secrets. Secrets are knowledge, and knowledge is power. And I think right now he has a hunger for power that's even more compelling than his hunger for what Virgin Mary keeps where the sun doesn't shine.
