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.

Good vs Evil: Jacob & “Locke”

It’s been a while since I did a Good vs. Evil post, and I’ve put this one off for a long time.  I mostly want to write this now because it seems like everyone is grasping at straws trying to figure out if we’ve been misled, maybe Jacob isn’t as nice as we like to believe.  I think it’s possible that people have lost some perspective about the issues.

And one disclaimer before I continue.  I feel very strongly we can discuss whether someone is good or evil.  I know many people dislike it when I debate these things, they wants more vagueness, they don’t want their favorite characters pigeon-holed.  But I like drawing lines in the sand.  I want there to be barriers between good and evil actions.  In the end of this show there will be two side, and I don’t think they will both be good and both be evil.  I’m pretty sure there will be villains and there will be heroes.

And another thing, I have to write this post about Jacob and “Locke”/Smokey because they are undoubtedly on opposite sides, if I write about one of them then it affects the other one.

606 – Sundown

Review:

This episode was called Sundown, I was expecting a Sun and Jin episode and I was hoping that by the end of the episode Sun would be shot down in at least one of the two timelines.  I was way off.  This was bound to happen since I don’t watch any commercials for the upcoming episodes.

This episode was about Sayid instead of Sun.  And guess who’s back?  Nadia!!  If this was season three I would be excited.  But after Sayid and Nadia got their Happily ever after (almost) I stopped caring about her.  This flashback really just dragged on for me.  It kinda set up a Jin and Sun episode, but it’s not like that’s getting me too excited.

On the Island things were more fun.  Sayid was playing an assassin for both sides.  For a short time I actually liked him again, but then he went back to the mindless killing machine so I can go back to ignoring him.  If there’s anything that I can be excited about it’s the fact that we’ll probably never have another Sayid-centric episode every again.  Huzzah!

I have to mention this somewhere, this is probably the best place.  The scene with Sayid, Claire and Kate walking through the ruined Temple with Claire’s lullaby playing off tune in the background was unique in a weird way.  That was very un-Lost-like.

But it sounds like I really hated this episode, that’s not quite true.  I really liked the Kate and Claire reunion and the last six minutes were pure energy.  This episode set up some great groups, and I’m really looking forward to the next episode.  Half of this episode was bad, another third was pretty good and a tenth of it was great then there were some commercials  I think that leaves us with about a 4.5/10.0

Foreign Theories: Top 10 Lost Villains

This isn’t a theory, but it’s still quite good.  The Ack Attack is always a good site, this list just proves that.  I highly recommend you check out her site if you haven’t already.

This is her list of the Top Ten Villains on Lost.  I dare you to try to guess her list before you go there.  I got it wrong simple because I forgot that her number one villain was actually a villain, also I forgot about Smokey.  This is why I don’t do top ten lists, I tend to omit important things.

Good vs. Evil – Ben Linus

214-ben-01

Last week I wrote about Charles Widmore, discussing wheat we know about him so far and whether he’s good or evil.  This week I want to talk about his nemesis, Benjamin Linus.  I really suggest you check out Widmore’s page, it’s quite relevant to what I’m talking about today.

I’m going to go through Ben’s actions, as we’ve seen them, and judge him based on what we know.  There’s still a lot that we don’t know about the character but I think we have enough to make an informed decision.

Good vs. Evil – Charles Widmore

405-whidmore-01

I intended to talk about both Ben and Widmore but I had a surprising amount to say about Widmore so we’ll leave it at that.

I enjoy arguing for the “other side”.  When I see people assuming one thing I like to argue the other side, not because I believe it, just to add to the discussion.  I tend to think that most people believe that Widmore is evil.  We’re obviously meant to question that assumption all the time.  But in general we see these him do more “evil” acts rather than “good” acts.  Let’s try to look at the big picture though.

413 – There’s No Place Like Home (part 2)

island-disappearing-01413-oceanic-6-raft413-desmond-penny-01

Review:

A recap of this episode would be insanely long, and if you read the last one then you’ll know that it won’t really make sense anyways.  The problem I have with analyzing this episode is that I already did that.. for a month.  I referred readers to my coverage last time and I’ll do it again.  Go here if you want to see all that I said about this episode back in June.  (Note:  I wrote all that jazz way back in June, so I may have changed my mind about a lot of those ideas.  Just don’t hold me to any of the crazy things I said back then.)

But let’s get on with it.

Technically the most important things to happen in this episode are:

-The Oceanic 6 get away

-Ben moves the island

-and Locke is the man in the coffin

All great things, they’ll have a huge bearing on the rest of the show, and especially season 5.  But, to be completely honest the reason why I’ll give this episode a 10.0/10.0 is because Desmond got back with Penny.  I know that it would be just as good without that scene, but that’s the most significant thing in my mind

10.0/10.0

412 – There’s No Place Like Home (part 1)

412-oceanic-6-press-conference-01

Review:

(I spent a long time reviewing this episode and the next one after this season ended way back in June of 2008.  You can find all the coverage under the tag “season 4 finale“.)

This is the annual set-up episode for the finale.  This year things are much crazier (you could probably say that every year).  It’s hard to even list everything that happens in this episode.

Jack and Kate head into the jungle to follow the helicopter.  They meet Sawyer, Aaron and Miles.  Jack and Sawyer continue and Kate goes back with Aaron.  They meet Sayid who arrives on the beach with a little zodiac.  Daniel, Sun, Jin and Aaron go on the zodiac to the Freighter.  Kate turns around and goes with Sayid after Jack and Sawyer.  Meanwhile Ben, Locke and Hurley are racing to The Orchid station, trying to get there before Frank and Keamy.  Ben makes a pit-stop to contact Richard.  Keamy beats them to The Orchid.  Jack and Sawyer find Frank, then decide to chase after Locke and Hurley.  Kate and Sayid run into Richard and they all head in an unknown direction.  On the Freighter, Desmond, Jin Sun, Aaron and Michael discover a stash of wired explosives.  And in the very end Ben surrenders to Keamy.

Whew.  And that’s only what happened on the island.

Off the island we get some filler flashforwards (not in a bad way though).  We see the Oceanic 6 right after they were rescued.  We see their press-conference and see some of the foreshadowing for past and future flashforwards (whoa, that was a perplexing sentence!).  Hurley gets his old car back and is reminded of the curse of the numbers.  Sayid reunites with Nadia.  Jack finds out that Claire was his half-sister at Christian’s funeral.  That’s about it.  These flashforwards seemed to be mostly just to fill in some of the blank spots and they also showed some of the happiness and relief that the O6 felt soon after they were rescued.

This episode was incredibly paced.  It’s true that it’s just a set-up for the finale, but what a great setup it was.  9.0/10.0

411 – Cabin Fever

411-locke-christian-01

Review:

This episode is another one of those insanely mythologically driven episodes.  It’s mostly about Locke looking for Jacob’s Cabin but it also shows Locke’s life and some stuff on the Freighter.

On the Freighter we see Keamy prepare to carry out the Secondary Protocol.  He also kills the doctor and scares everyone else.  Sayid goes back to the island on the little Zodiac.  Desmond decides to stay on the Freighter.  Michael tries his best to save everyone on the island from Keamy.

In Locke’s flashback we see Richard stalking Locke, trying to recruit him, presumably to go to the island.  In the first instant Richard observes Locke as a baby.  In the second he tries to test him, Locke fails.  In the third test Richard invites him from afar and Locke is too stubborn to accept.  In the end it’s the opposing side (I assume) that gets to Locke.  Abbadon visits Locke and encourages him to go on a Walkabout, if that solves Locke’s problem then Locke would owe him one.  Scary stuff.

On the island Locke tries to track Jacob and his cabin.  Horace visits him in a vision and tells Locke that if he finds Horace he will find Jacob.  This leads Locke to the Dharma Ditch and a map to the Cabin.  Locke find it and is met with Christian.  Christian tells Locke to move the island and Claire smiles.

This episode has almost all of the power players in the show.  Locke, Ben, Richard, Abbadon, Christian, Jacob.  The only one missing is Charles Whidmore.  That makes this episode good.  Also the fact that it deals almost exclusively with the mythological side of the show makes it tops.

10.0/10.0
