409 – The Shape of Things to Come

409-alex-keamy-01409-ben-03Review:

This episode is insano.  This only the second Ben episode and already his episodes are the best.  No one else has such informative flashbacks/forwards, and no one is in the middle of things like Ben.  It’s hard to believe that he is just a supporting character.

On to the episode.  This episode has completely different interpretations now that season 4 is done.  Ben’s flashback is suddenly logical and understandable.  Now that we know exactly what preceded this flashforward we can understand his actions.

As for the actions on the island…well there is too much to say.  Ben controlling Smokey, Alex dying, Claire “dying”, Sayid coming under Ben’s control, Daniel lying, Jack nearly “dying”, Ben conversing with Mr. Whidmore; it was so much insanity that it’s hard to keep track of it all.  I don’t want to go too deeply into it here (keep reading if you want to see me go too deeply into it) but I just want to say that this episode will likely be the basis for many more storylines in the future.

10.0/10.0

408 – Meet Kevin Johnson

408-rousseau-alex-karl-01Review:

I like the format of this episode, very little B-story, all Michael.  They did add a beginning and an end, but I believe that they were afterthoughts following the writers strike.

This episode was primarily about Michael and what happened to him after he left the island.  Surprisingly it wasn’t all rainbows and happiness.  He suffered just as much off the island as he did on it.  And for the second time he submitted to Ben.  All in all it was a good flashback.  It really reminded me of Three Minutes, the season 2 episode.  It seems like the writers like to tell Michael stories all at once rather than slowly revealing them.

But that wasn’t really what I cared about in this episode.  The craziest thing to happen in this episode had nothing to do with Michael, it was Rousseau and Karl getting shot.  That shocked me to my core.  I really didn’t see it coming and I am still surprised that it actually happened.  These deaths along with Alex’s death are what made season 3 shocking.

8.5/10.0

405 – The Constant

405-desmond-01405-penny-01

Review:

I cried the first time I watched this episode, and I cried again when I rewatched it this time.  This episode is glorious and a half.  It manages to mix intense and confusing sci-fi with a perfectly written love story.  Wow, I can’t tell you how much I love this episode.

And not only that but it includes all of my favorite characters.  Desmond was my first favorite character and his love story with Penny was my favorite storyline.  Then Daniel came along and I questioned my complete loyalty to Desmond.  Now that Desmond and Penny’s love story is mostly over Daniel is my favorite character but I still love them all.

I also love sci-fi themes and I love how these writers do it.  They insist on making it logical, which is reassuring and entertaining at the same time.  It’s all great fun.

I also found out a lot by rewatching this episode.  Like Locke’s possible fate, and the importance of nosebleeds.

If I could give it more than 10 I would.  10.0/10.0

season 4 finale: Ben’s freakout

This is a pretty minor post.  I don’t want to dwell too much on something like this, but I can’t ignore it, it was pretty significant.

When Ben killed Keamy it was pretty dramatic and intriguing.  That was the first time, I believe, that we get to see Ben lose control.  He literally freaked out.  Ben, up until this point, has hid emotions and only reavealed things when it furthered his goals.

A suprising thing, I think, was that before the goring of Keamy, when they were walking Ben throught the jungle Ben asked Keamy, “Did Charles Whidmore tell you to kill my daughteer?”  And it really sounded like a question.  Keamy didn’t asnwer but the truth is we don’t really know.  There’s a high chance Keamy just did it to anger Ben or out of stupidity.

Either way it was interesting to see Ben go crazy, but hopefully he gets control of himself before he does anything crazy like killing Penny.

Next week (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs) I’m posting some stuff about the island moving.  It’s moderately crazy stuff, I encourage everyone to come back and read about it.
