  • Exactly, who doesn't love Hurley ?

    Let's start with the good : for a long-time fan, witnessing Hurley and Libby finally having their date together was a great moment. Well, maybe not on the scale of 815 landing in LAX, but a great one anyway. The flash-sideways universe, continuing last week's trend, seems to make more and more sense, with Desmond, as always, as the wild card. But on the island, characters seem to be a little ... lost ( pun not intended ) . Locke doesn't seem to know what to do, neither does Richard, Jack doesn't care, everyone is wandering in the jungle or "waiting" (for the finale ?), as Locke phrases it. Ilana dies for no apparent reason ( "The island is done with her", what kind of lame excuse is that for writing a character out ? even Michael was blown up with more dignity and meaning ! ) All in all, I was very surprised to find the flash-sideways more enjoyable than the main story this week ! So a little letdown from the writers, despite the long overdue explanation of the Whispers, but the Hurley scenes prevent the episode from being plain bad.
