Sayid! A cold blooded killer with a heart of gold. He's always been a fascinating character. I watched the episode on Tuesday with a new Lost-head...she just bought Season 1 and was about to delve into the world of Lost. Convinced that she would forget it all by the time she got to this episode, she watched it with my wife and I.
Much Jack this episode, entitled "Lighthouse". The flash sideways was devoted to Jack and the relationship with his son. Very good story in the sideways flash, with Jack's son seemingly running away and Jack, worried, looking for him everywhere. Jack eventually finds his son, playing piano wickedly at a sort of entrance exam into a high-end music school.
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.
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.
