Jin OTOH, CAN speak English in the Sideways Flash, which is why he has the ability on the Island.
Smokey is contained on the Island by water. He can't just turn into the Smoke Monster and travel at will. He's restricted to "human" form.
There was a scene where Sun looked into a mirror and was appalled at the image (of what, we don't know).
Now we know how Mikhail lost his eye.
Keamy's not dead.
And finally, Desmond was the person captured and brought back to the island by Widmore. This is particularly interesting because it appears that Desmond never went to the Island in the Sideways flash, so his importance has yet to be revealed.
I thought it was an excellent episode.
I distinctly remember Sun being the one who learned English in the first 3 seasons via flashbacks
