LOST Recap 6x15: Across The Sea

LostLogo_ La mer… Last night’s episode of Lost was supposed to give us all some answers about the show’s central mysteries.  Did it?  Not really.  Instead, “Across The Sea” told us what kind of show Lost was. Spoilers!

Lost Recap: "The Candidate"

LOST-logoThis week on Lost: The broom of the season comes out and starts sweeping the decks clean. Smokey has schemes and knows how to build a bomb out of C-4 and a wristwatch, despite being a column of ancient angry smoke. In the alterniverse, nearly nothing happens. And Hurley cries, which makes the implausibilities of this episode completely worthwhile. Spoilers below.

LOMGST! Lost Recap(ish) - Happily Ever After

Lost Happily Ever After desmond hume charles widmore henry ian cusick alan dale Today my life unexpectedly became an explosion of unforeseen real-world roadblocks, keeping me from writing the proper recap we both deserve. And so, at the risk of disappointing y'all (sorries!), this week I'd like to open the floor up to everyone present and ask for your input about what the hell is going on with this show. Because, really, your guess is probably as good as mine at this point.

Help a brotha out, won't you?

LOMGST! Lost Recap - The Package

Lost episode the package ben linus sunPREVIOUSLY ON LOST: In a rare, genuinely dramatic moment in U.S. Customs history, a Customs agent at LAX confiscates the $25,000 Sun's father gave Jin for some shady cross-continent "business" dealings -- the details of which we're still not completely clear on (though we ARE clear on the fact that when I put "unnecessary quotes" around words I'm not just defying grammar, respected manuals of style, AND common sense, but also being "annoyingly sarcastic" on purpose, just to torment others) -- because the money was "undeclared." (Listen Customs dude, that money isn't just "undeclared" -- it's so off-the-grid it's, like, one laundering away from becoming INVISIBLE.) Hurley told Richard that, DUDE, your wife told me that you can't let Faux Locke get off the island or DUDE, we're all going to Hell and DUDE, I SEE DEAD PEOPLE. Faux Locke sent Sawyer on a recon mission to Hydra island, where he met Charles Widmore and in short order promised to deliver Faux Locke to Widmore provided Widmore gets the remaining Losties off the island (of course, true to form, Sawyer had already struck a similar deal with Faux Locke, so it'll be interesting to see if/how this little scheme of his doesn't backfire, go nuclear, and end in a mess of fiery rubble and bodies... uhh fingers crossed?). BOOM!

LOMGST! Lost Recap - Ab Aeterno

Lost-richard-jail PREVIOUSLY ON LOST: Richard Alpert is a mysterious dude who appears to wear some kind of permanent kohl eyeliner and never ages. The weirdness of this isn't lost on good old Ben Linus, who comments, in ominous tones, that Richard is an advisor to Jacob and that he has had that job for a "VERY. VERY. LONG. TIME." After Jacob gets stabbed by Ben and goes up like a lighter fluid doused s'more in the fire pit at Jacob's Giant Egyptian God-shaped lair, Richard gets muy triste -- or some other word for emo and bummed out that I don't know since I don't actually speak Spanish -- because he spent his whole life in service of Jacob and now Jacob's dead, and his (relentless, unending) life is a hollow lie. Richard then begs Jack to help him to commit suicide by... wait... for... it... DYNAMITE, and though I would never condone the taking of one's own life by self-explosion, even I have to admit that's pretty badass. BOOM!

LOMGST! Lost Recap - Recon

Lost-recon-sawyer_gunPREVIOUSLY ON LOST: Okay, so this is weird. This here episode didn't start with the usual "Previously on LOST" bit, and I can't recall when, if ever, that's happened before, but I'm just going to roll with it, because with a mere 9 episodes remaining until the finale, apparently the producers are all, Fuck all y'all if you don't know what's going on at this point... WHEE!!! Do you want to go faster? RAISE YOUR HANDS IF YOU WANT TO GO FASTER! And really, who am I to question their masochism wisdom? BOOM!

LOMGST! Lost Recap - Dr. Linus

LOST-dr_Linus-Ben  Previously on LOST: Once upon a time, on an island far, far away (OR IS IT?), Ben stabbed Jacob and Faux Locke pushed him into a giant, indoor firepit. Jack and Hurley found a lighthouse with space-time-continuum-bending mirrors encircled by a wooden ring with names and numbers written on it, several of the names being those of Losties, whose corresponding numbers match The Numbers (ie, 4 8 15 16 23 42). Jack, who is more than a little freaked out by this discovery, got all staring-out-at-the-vast-ocean-whilst-contemplating-life broody, while Hurley conversed with Dead Jacob about how "someone bad" is coming to the island. DUN DUN DUH! The smoke monster destroyed the temple and killed off a bunch of superfluous Other-Hun extras, and Ben ran into -- and got suitably creeped out by -- the newly-minted murderous Zombie Sayid. BOOM!

LOMGST! Lost Recap - Sundown

Sundown-2 Previously on LOST: Once upon a time (which time, we're not quite sure, mind you), Greasy Others shot Sayid dead in Dharma Village. A short while later, Hun-like others -- including that dude from Deadwood -- try to revive him by holding him underwater in a giant, poopy jacuzzi. This bizarre resuscitation technique appears to fail... until later, when the presumed corpse of Sayid sits up, looks around, and is all, WTF? You guys totally drew on my face with a Sharpie while I was out, didn't you? No they didn't, but Fu Man Chu (aka Dogen, just roll with it) decides that while magic marker humiliation of Sayid may not be in order, divination by way of actual physical torturing of him is, and it is through this methodology that he determines that Sayid is "claimed" and has ookie dark creepies in him. Fu tries to poison bad cootified Sayid, but -- SURPRISE! -- is foiled by Jack being... well, Jack. A bit later on, in a CLASSIC Jack move, Jack goes to Sayid and tells him, Oh by the by, the Other-Huns tried to kill you because you have, like, creeping death or soul rot-gut or something... Pie? BOOM!

LOMGST! Lost You-Recap - Lighthouse

Lost-lighthouse-hurley-jackFriends, internet citizens, Lost fans, I will sadly not be able to recap Lost full and proper today due to a confluence of unfortunate, time-taxing circumstances... HOWEVER! There is MUCH to discuss, and I won't be able to sleep tonight if I don't get to WTF??? with y'all. SO.


February 17, 2010

LOMGST! Lost Recap - The Substitute

Lockesubstitute Previously on LOST: Bitter Sawyer is bitter. Bitter Sawyer is also guilty-feeling, self-flagellating Sawyer, and Kate is still all, "Look at me! I'M PRETTY TOO!" Faux Locke is creepy and (as Ben saw, up close and personal) the smoke monster, and God (and Jacob) only knows what else. Richard with the FABULOUS eyeliner recognizes Faux Locke as Jacob's nemesis, so Faux Locke promptly punches him in the throat and carries him off into the jungle, but not before admonishing everyone that he's VERY disappointed in all of them (Jeez, Dad, way to break up a party). Real Locke remains dead, though in Dimension #2 (D2) -- the one in which the plane never crashed -- he's very much alive, if still quite wheelchair-bound. But keep in mind that whatever you do, don't tell him what he can't... BOOM!

LOMGST! Lost Recap - What Kate Does

LostFinalSeasonPoster Previously on Lost: Once upon a time, Sawyer happily played house with Juliet in the Dharma village of the 1970s, until she got sucked down a electromagnetically charged shaft and died in Sawyer's arms (OR DID SHE? That's in Dimension #1, you'll recall). Sawyer is PISSED at Jack and blames him for Juliet's death (though isn't he really in love with Kate? Whatever, I can't keep track of all the romantic triangles and quadrangles and other odd geometric shapes at this point). Everyone gets captured by island Huns, who seem simultaneously sinister and helpful, as they bring Sayid back to life by holding him face down in a giant poopy jacuzzi, and then continue holding him down until they drown him, which doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but then again, really, how much of this show does? Unsurprisingly, an hour later, Officially Proclaimed Dead Sayid inexplicably sits up, looks around, and is all, Dude, WTF? BOOM!

MamaPop Exclusive Doc Jensen Interview!

Lost_the_incident Friends, Lost Fans, Geeks, the day we have long dreaded and anticipated in equal measure is now upon us. Yes, today is Lost Season Finale Day. And I don't know about you, but my excitement for tonight's culminating two-hour episode is definitely tempered by some very serious anxiety about what the hell I'm going to do on Wednesday nights starting next week. Should I pick up knitting? Portrait painting? cough Ship-in-a-bottle making cough? Sigh. Each time a season of Lost ends I'm reminded of how barren the televisual landscape is without the show, and just how awful it will be to see it end after next season. Oh the woe and the weeping, the tearing of clothes and wailing and gnashing of teeth... Let's hope there's a support group or something I can join, as I expect the Lost withdrawals to be formidable.

That said, tonight's ending thankfully foreshadows next season's beginning, and we still have a great big chunk of Lost ahead of us to look forward to [wipes sweat from brow]. And who better to help us navigate through the show's narrative and its complex machinations than Entertainment Weekly's Delphic-Oracle-Like Expert On All Things Lost, Jeff "Doc" Jensen? That's right, NO ONE. Which is why I'm beyond excited -- thrilled, quite honestly -- that Doc took time during what must be an incredibly busy week for him to answer our questions about tonight's finale, how he thinks the show will end, who he thinks that Jacob dude is, and more.

Full interview with Doc after the jump!
