often leaves one aghast. The end-of-episode reveals have become a staple of the series, but I don't think I've ever audibly gasped like I did when Kate said the name “Aaron” at the end of “Egg Town.” The episode was entrancing enough itself – the whole Kate courtroom saga played out well, but that last scene was fantastic. Jack and Kate's final conversation of the episode, in the courtroom parking lot, made the possibility of Kate's child being Sawyer's completely plausible. The beauty of it was that Jack's words and actions worked perfectly both ways – whether it was Aaron or the child of Kate and Sawyer. It was a great piece of writing and, for me, the biggest shock of the season.
