124 – Exodus (part 2)

Review:

Rousseau’s surprisingly well thought out and executed plan comes to a head in this episode when she steals Claire’s baby.  Claire has a slight flashback of attacking Rousseau.  Meanwhile Arzt makes himself useful by blowing up.  Sawyer, Jin and Michael waste a little bit of time on the raft by almost losing the rudder, but that’s about it.  The flashbacks are not terribly memorable, and there is little mythology involved.

This episode is very well paced and extremely exciting.  But like I said earlier nothing memorable really happens.  If I didn’t know that Smokey was about to appear I wouldn’t be so charitable.  I’ll give it a 8.0/10

109 – Solitary

Review:

I didn’t recall this episode being as good as it is.  Sayid’s stories really take a nosedive after this point, I think I lost respect for him after he fell in love with Shannon.  This episode sets up a lot of storylines.  It introduces Rousseau and tells her story.  It introduces Ethan, as a nice strange man.  Sayid also finds the wire on the beach that leads to The Looking Glass.  The Black Rock is also introduced briefly.  And Danielle tells Sayid there are Others on the island, and on a related note Sayid hears the voices for the first time.  That’s pretty dense for an episode when the secondary storyline involves setting up a golf course.  In all this was a surprisingly good episode, 8.0/10
