This past Thursday saw the conclusion to the two-part season finale of NBC's stellar intellectual comedy, Community. Expanding on the premise of last season's paintball episode, this year's vision was much grander in scope.
Now we're getting somewhere. And it is somewhat fitting that Locke, whoever he is, is the one who stars in the episode where we finally see progress in this, the final season. As much as I didn't mind last week's episode, in hindsight we didn't really get anywhere. Perhaps inadvertently making up for this, tonight's episode was pretty great.
This episode did answer, at least it began to answer, a question that's been on my mind for quite a long while: What happened to Claire??? We also got a little more info on the strange Asian Dude (Dogan?), what's up with Sayid (but can we trust them?), and an emoting Sawyer (which is a really cool change in him that began to really happen last year).
The new and final season of Lost promised to answer many lingering questions, too many questions to list here, however the first episode probably left me with more questions. This confounding but brilliant series has thrown so many twists at us that at times it's hard to remember all the things we need to know this year. But they've sure gotten off to a typical start.
