Storyline

Michael is drowning and Sawyer saves him, while Jin is missing. Michael recalls his fight against Susan for Walt in the justice and the reasons for Michael's desperate obsession for his son. They drift on a wreckage of the raft, with the menace of a shark. Michael blames Sawyer for the abduction of Walt and promises to bring his son back. Meanwhile, Kate releases herself from Desmond's captivity and escapes through a ventilation duct, while Locke tries asking Desmond questions about the underground facility they are in and about the use of the mysterious numbers. At the end, Michael and Sawyer reach the beach, and they see Jin escaping from "The Others". Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Tales from the Hatch
14 August 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Adrift", penned by Leonard Dick and Steven Maeda, is an episode a lot of fans dislike and for understandable reasons: there's a pretty perfunctory and average 'fill-in-the-blanks' flashback for Michael, a lot of Michael and Sawyer floating on the water, and a hatch storyline that doesn't further the story at all, merely giving us Locke and Kate's perspective of the events leading up to Jack saying "you" to Desmond at the end of "Man of Science, Man of Faith".

But I've always had a soft spot for the episode. It's never really boring, although it fails to bring anything new to the table with regard to Michael's character, and we get to see a lot more of the hatch than we did in the last episode, and I really do love that hatch (it's brilliantly designed whether you like its impact on the show's story lines or not). The direction by Stephen Williams (his second episode as director after "All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues") is very good, and the performances by everyone involved in the episode are quite good.

But of course what really makes the episode is the classic ending, which led to an endless frenzy of speculation amongst "Lost" fans on the internet and elsewhere, with Jin running out from the jungle to meet Sawyer and Michael and screaming UDDERS UDDERS UDDERS, cut to some ominous looking folk, THUD, LOST. Brilliant.

All in all a pretty solid episode which I feel is unfairly maligned by some.

8/10
