Plot Details/Objective - » (8/10). Every season of Lost, new characters are introduced, but this time they decide to come with 4 new characters, and all of them seems that they will stay a little longer. Contrary to Nikki and Paulo, the Producers guaranteed a short sequence of flashbacks, connecting everyone of them to the Island somehow. And Ben have something to say too. The only problem is that our favorites survivors on TV don´t have nothing to do, so the writers complicated the 4 new character life´s and tied them with Jack/Locke tribe looking for them.
What I Like/Disliked -» Michael Emerson acting is pure gold. The new mysterious characters like Miles and Dan, which can uncover some of the mysteries of this Island. The ending was nice too.
Presentation -» (9/10). Another good presentation and I think everybody liked to see another point of view.
Complication Phase -» (8/10). Nothing too special, but was good enough to keep you interest.
Climax -» (7/10). Almost didn´t notice where the climax was, but was near the ending.
Cliffhanger/Ending -» (8/10). Better than the last weak episode, since things are more interesting now.
Flashbacks Sequences -» (9/10). First time this happens and I think that every one o single Scene introduced very well more intriguing mysteries.
Time and Scenes Management -» (8/10). Another Trek like the last episode, but overall things are Ok.
Dialogues -» (9/10). Some dialogues between some of the characters was very interesting, but Michael Emerson stole the moment.
Action /Adventure -» (7/10). Tracking the others new arrivers on the Island.
Drama/Emotions -» (5/10). Nothing here that could be powerfully emotional.
Suspense/Tension -» (7/10). You don´t Know what the news Arrivers want, so you don´t Know who is dangerous and if Jack/Locke are in danger.
Mystery/Curiosity/Doubts/Hints -» (10/10). The 5 flashbacks sequence introduce new mysteries, hints and doubts.
Surprise/Twists -» (8/10). The beginning of this episode Is about confirmation, but the end have a surprise too.
Thoughts Changer -» None. Nothing that could trick you or change you thoughts/opinion in something.
This episode continues to build the plot in a solid and sometime great ways, that make you interesting in what could happen. I don´t think that this episode is better than the season premiere, but it is almost very similar, only a little behind.
