Lost Review 3-21-07

This weeks episode: A+

LockeWow, is where I’d like to start on this week’s episode of Lost. Although the previous two weeks were very good episodes, this week took Lost back to the days of Season 1. The drama was heavy and well delivered and we got some good answers as well as some new questions and some incredible surprises!

This week’s episode dealt with Locke and the group infiltrating Othersville in an attempt to rescue Jack. The group waits until night fall to make their move and when they do Danielle suddenly disappears while Locke, Sayid, and Kate all move into the semi-city. Kate finds Jack playing the piano in a house but he does not greet her in a positive light. Kate seems confused until Jack states that “they’re watching me, you shouldn’t be here!” Before Kate can realize what’s going on, some Others bust into the room and take out Kate and capture Sayid as well.

Meanwhile, Locke invades Ben’s house and holds him hostage. The two exchange a lot of information and Ben inquires into Locke ability to heal while on the island. All the while we get a lot of Locke flashbacks that are very entertaining and really help to move his story along. Eventually Locke meets up with his dad again to find he’s a khan man (I think the man who khaned Sawyers family) and asks him to break off a wedding he’s planning with a wealthy woman. During a final confrontation between Locke and his dad, Locke is pushed out a window and plummets eight stories falling flat on his back! I never saw this coming and it was so great to finally find out how Locke ended up in a wheelchair. Great writing for this episode…I knew it would be good but wow, I’m still pumped over it.

There were a lot of other things going on in this episode too. The main focus was on Locke’s plot to blow up the Others submarine which Ben pleads with him not to do. In the end Locke accomplishes his task but is then captured and it is revealed that Ben wanted the sub to be blown to pieces so that Jack would not be able to leave the island.

I am thoroughly impressed with this week’s episode and with the direction this season has headed in. Yes there were two so so episodes this year but all the rest and especially the more recent episodes have been awesome true to Lost form. From what I’m reading and hearing the remainder of the season should be phenomenal and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen!

Can’t wait to see what happens next week! The preview looks awesome!
