  • The survivors continue their trek to the Orchid as the island's time flashes become more violent than ever.

    This episode was nearly perfect. It was exciting, it gave us answers and left us with an extremely intriguing cliffhanger. It was sad to see Charlotte go, but her death was one of the best in Lost history.

    Where do I start?
    Seeing Rousseau and her team was awesome, and Smokey's back! And I must say I've really missed him. Seeing the events of Rousseau's time on the island unfold was amazing and gave us some very memorable moments.

    Charlotte's death again, was very well done.

    Locke meeting with Christian Shephard again was the highlight of the episode. It was revealed that Ben was not supposed to turn the wheel, and Locke was. John Locke's part within the story is becoming so epic, it is great.

    Seeing Sun, Jack and Ben meet up with Desmond was also really exciting. Is Penny safe? Will those four go back first? Where do they go from here? A truly memorable episode from start to finish. I love this season, I love this show.
