Lost Recap: "The Package"
What's interesting about this flashsideways is that we see how Jin is a completely different person. He is a much more likeable guy, similar to the Jin we've come to know, in contrast to the Jin we met at the very beginning of LOST. Once again, this seems to indicate that the flashsideways is a completely different world. It's not as if everything up until Flight 815 was the same as before, rather, their entire lives are different. In Jin's case, even his personality is totally different.
As far as the on-island storyline, we have now learned that Widmore wants to keep MIB on the island, which I suppose puts him on Team Jacob for the time being. It wouldn't surprise me if by the end of the season we have a lot more gray than black and white as far as characters being wholly good or wholly evil...maybe even Jacob and MIB.
Whatever the case may be, Widmore seems to think that Desmond is the key to keeping MIB on the island. This raises a number of questions which I'm sure will be addressed during Desmond's episode.
To close, I'll leave you with a recent tantalizing little tweet from LOST's executive producer Damon Lindelof: "In one week, the conversation is going to change."
