  • *** Spoiler-free *** Empathic Hurley, inspiring Jack, puzzling incident, captivating Desmond quest but love mumbo jumbo

    It's a bird ! It's a plane ! No, it's Hurley ! Everybody Hated Hugo in the fourth episode of season 2 but Lost's comic relief number one character quickly proved himself as a valuable asset. His lack of confidence reminds us that we all have issues but thanks to his friends he managed to become a better man, a greater man. Thanks to his ability he can talk to dead people like Jacob and in season 6 he became the archetype of the antileader. His profile is so refreshing because it dramatically contrasts with Jack and Locke. The first embraced faith in Follow the Leader and we all know what happened to the second. In this installment it was quite inspiring to see how much Jack has changed since Juliet died. I really enjoyed his few scenes with Hugo because they allowed these characters to grow on us even more. Moreover an incident coming from nowhere sliced the island arc once more so following all these leaders is definitely captivating. However the urban arc didn't convince me at all because I don't really dig the whole love mumbo jumbo introduced in Happily Ever After. But as expected the enlightenment of this episode was Desmond. He could only come back and become a recurring character. After Sayid captured him I couldn't help picturing them in a Celebrity Deathmatch episode. Desmond really acted like a happy zombie on the island. That's why I highly anticipated his inevitable encounter with Black Locke, the white dove against the darkness. As for Desmond of the city I was very intrigued by his new quest considering he asked his driver for the passengers list. Its development was even better than I hoped and should really puzzle you. As for the cliffhanger it was just mind blowing !
