  • Like the previous episode, this episode was interesting, but had better dialogues and interactions, and had the type of strange mysteries that is usual in Lost. Overall, another superb episode about Locke and his psychological State.

    9.0
    Plot Details/Objective -» Was a clever move making us wait to see what happened in 3 years to Sawyer and Co. This episode is highly focused in John Locke and his mission to bring back the Oceanic Six.

    What I Like/Disliked -» This is another episode that surprises me. Because the episode is nothing over the top and fast enough, it is just good interaction and reflections, with some surprises inside.

    Overall:

    Presentation -» (9/10). If you didn´t saw the trailer, than it is a great surprise and a intriguing one.

    Complication Phase -» (9/10). Locke mission was difficult, but what was more interesting was Locke dialogues with every characters.

    Climax -» (8/10). The writers already told us that Locke committed suicide, but they save a surprise about how that happened, which was nice.

    Cliffhanger/Ending -» (9/10). This is the type of ending that was well delivered because of the Storyline built and the Climax phase. Now things will be interesting.

    Time and Scenes Management -» (10/10). There aren´t a single interaction that seems to be forced to buy some time.

    Dialogues -» (10/10). Locke talks with everyone he needs. Was nice to know what happened to Ellen. Also the strange guy in the first episode appeared here and have nice talk with Locke too. Even Wildmore, Kate, Jack, Sayid, Walt and Hurley had good interactions with Locke.

    Action /Adventure -» (8/10). Wasn´t a episode for this, but had some shooting, accident and a murder.

    Drama/Emotions -» (9/10). Wasn´t perfect, but you have good emotions there. Locke psychological state was very interesting, even when he tried the suicide.

    Suspense/Tension -» Wasn't a episode for that.

    Mystery/Curiosity/Doubts/Hints -» (9/10). Walt dreams, how Locke is alive, what the two new survivors of the AJira flight objective, Why the pilot disappeared etc, the usual structure of Lost series.

    Surprise/Twists -» (9(10). Locke is alive, this is enough. But Ben delivered another surprise, even the appearance of that strange guy.

    Like the previous episode, this episode was interesting, but had better dialogues and interactions, and had the type of strange mysteries that is usual in Lost. Overall, another superb episode about Locke and his psychological State.
