610 – The Package

Review:

Yay!  A character that I like is back!  Poor Desmond is having a pretty rough life.  That’s what he gets for having a happy ending before the show ends.  I knew that was a bad idea.

Widmore and “Locke” have their fateful reunion.  It was surprisingly early, but that’s forgivable.  I’m sure we’ll see a lot more from these two.  (I’m also betting that Widmore will be dead sooner than we might expect.)

Meanwhile, on the beach, Richard finally realizes that he’s smart so he comes up with a plan.  He decides that they have to destroy the Ajira plane so that “Locke” can’t leave.  Of course their plan will change once Widmore gets involves.

It’s possible that this was the most entertaining Jin and Sun flash (be it -back, -forward or -sideways).  That’s not saying much though.  I was happy to see Mikhail again… heh heh heh.

I’d say a third of this episode was totally useless so I’ve give it a 6.5/10.0  that’s pretty good for a Kwon episode.

609 – Ab Aeterno

Review:

The first time I watched this episode I was half asleep and jet-lagged.  I managed to miss most of the extremely obvious Biblical connotations.  But when I wrote this post and watched it again it took me almost three hours to finish it.  I had to keep on pausing, rewinding and rewatching those crazy scenes with all my favorite characters.

I want to give a big high five to all the Lost community, for once we were almost completely right as a group about a backstory.  The Richard backstory has been on our minds for a long time, and looking back we guessed a lot of it right.  So kudos to you and me and all your friends for finally getting a theory right.

This episode was about Richard, but when you analyze the episode it was the Jacob/Smokey struggle that really stood out.  This episode clearly defined what’s been going on between those two for hundreds of years.  That conversation back in the Season 5 finale is now completely understood.

The Biblical parallels are extremely obvious and that shouldn’t shock anyone.  In stories with supernatural good vs. evil characters most people think first of the Genesis account and the subsequent struggles between God and the Devil.  Of course we’ve all been distracted by the Egyptian overtones, but looking back we should have seen their relative positions coming.

The first part of the episode dealt with Ilana a little.  She got a fake little flashback.  Then Jack had a little bit of fun, you can see how every time you see him he’s slowly transforming into a willing Candidate.  Then at the end of the episode we got a great scene with Hurley and Richard and a ghost.  I really believe that Hurley is becoming the prime Candidate.  He’s just too good at this stuff.

This episode was just terrific.  The only complaint I have is that the wine metaphor was really bad.  Besides that it was perfect.  You should no by now how much I love it when they depart from the regular Lost format.  10.0/10.0

Did anyone else get a little screwed with this episode?  It aired from 9:00-10:06.  My DVR couldn’t handle that, so I had to find alternate means of watching the final scenes.

I wonder what would happen if Lost continued to fall in ratings until the finale.  That would be interesting.  It might hurt Darlton’s reputation.

608 – Recon

Review:

10 second recap: Sawyer is a cop, he dates Charlotte, he’s still looking for Anthony Cooper, there’s a new girl name Zoe, Widmore is against “Locke”, Smokey had a bad mother, Sawyer isn’t on anyone’s side, Kate and Claire are BFFs.  I think that covers just about everything.

Sawyer gets a new name to add to his collection.  The flashsideways was pretty good, the reveal was suitably surprising so I was satisfied.  I enjoyed seeing Charlotte again, but I was mostly reminded how much I miss her.

We got some Kate and Charlie teases in this episode.  I think the writers might be overestimating how much we care about the other timeline.  I am a little curious, but I don’t foresee great things happening with Kate, and I don’t think Charlie’s going to be doing much of anything.

We finally get to find out which side Widmore is on.  That’s been annoying me for a long time now.

“Locke” was strangely forthcoming about his past.  Apparently he had a crazy mother, and that’s why he is the way he is.  Of course he still thinks that he’s right about everything, but at least he has someone else to blame when he does crazy things.

They’ve added a new character, Zoe.  It’s pretty late in the show for new people, but I’ll gladly welcome any female characters that they add to the show.  The male to female ratio on Lost has always been pretty off-balanced.

A pretty good episode.  The Sawyer parts weren’t extremely special, but they were OK.  I’m happy that he isn’t blindly following “Locke”.  I’m quite interested in the Widmore situation and the “Locke” backstory, so this episode was pretty fun for me.  All in all a pretty good episode.  7.5/10.0
