  • The Oceanic Six learn that they must return to the island to save their friends and find the way that they must do it.

    This episode did what "Lost" has often done best. Answer a few questions while bringing up about 20 new ones. It's the love and frustration that this show brings out in its many faithful and this episode was one of the biggest examples of that. An entire episode based off of the island, focused on the Oceanic Six and their associates, a story that left so many threads out that the questions just pile up. They may not be series-shaking questions (except maybe where Aaron is and whether Ben was bloody because he fulfilled his previous promise to Widmore, please no!) It's been a strong season for Lost, even with an entirely new format and set up. This episode easily continued that with its numerous twists and turns and from the looks of things, next week's episode may be just as good if not better. My only problem with the preview? Spoiler Warning Spoiler Warning SPOILER WARNING: Why oh why oh why did they have to spoil that JL has risen back from the dead? Thanks a bunch abc.
