  • An episode giving us a look at some more of the Oceanic 6 as well as a glimpse at what they're doing in the future. There are some great cliffhangers and some very important storyline developments. One of the top 2 episodes this season.

    Almost all episodes of LOST are revealing, but this episode gives us a glimpse of what Sayid in the future. This future is very interesting in that it seems he has become a very deceptive and harmful person again. He seems to be hunting people down, methodically, and calling himself a headhunter. He seems to have a boss, calling the shots, but it is not completely clear who until the end of this episode. Unfortunately this leaves many new questions unanswered: who is he killing, why is he killing them, and what do they have in common. Also, one of his targets doesn't recognize him until he introduces himself, at which point the target becomes very worried. It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds; what the connections are between these people.
