I fully expect this episode to get higher marks than the first hour, mainly because of the surprise ending, but to me it was a little worse. I hate using that term because this was still an incredible hour of television.
I did not like Ms. Hawking upon her arrival so I'm not a fan of her playing such a big part in the future of the Losties, but I am objective so I'll give her a chance.
But the Hurley stuff here was great. Cheech Marin is still entertaining as Hurley's father, even if the comedic icon makes you laugh at everything he says.
This episode gives me high hopes for Season 5. Let's just hope it does not disappoint.
