308 – Flashes Before Your Eyes

308-desmond-mrs-hawkins-01

Review:

Here it is!  This is arguably the best mid-season episodes ever (it’s hard to compare the finales to the other episodes).  What makes this episode so wonderful is that it’s so blatantly sci-fi.  After this point there is no way that a viewer could ignore the unrealistic parts of this show.  Sure Smokey is mysterious and the sky turned purple, but when Desmond went back in time something changed.

Charles Whidmore also factors into the main storyline in this episode.  Now that we know how important he is (or could be) this episode has a higher significance.

This episode also starts off the “Charlie’s going to die” story.  This is a great and original way to kill a character.  Dominic Monaghan was probably one of the higher paid actors on the show (I’m assuming) and he has a relatively large career.  His character, on the other hand, was about to become a side character.  There was little left for him to do.  He was going to leave sooner or later, I’m glad that he was able to leave on his own terms and in a memorable but not upsetting way.

But back to this episode.  Desmond and Penny are dynamite.  It’s been said many times before but I’ll say it again, Those two have such good chemistry.  They look so good together and the characters are made for each other.  To watch Desmond go through that part of his life again was heartbreaking.

Great episode 10.0/10.0  (I have a very hard time not comparing this episode with The Constant, which I loved even more.  IN the end I could find nothing wrong with this episode so I’ll give it 10.)
