Storyline

In the aftermath of the killing of Shannon, Ana Lucia takes the pistol from Sayid and ties him to a tree. Completely deranged, she threatens the whole group, and later she releases Michael demanding guns and ammunition for Sayid. Mr. Eko takes the unconscious Sawyer back to Jack at the hatch bunker, who tries to save him with Kate's help. Meanwhile, Ana Lucia recalls her past in the police force... in the months after she was shot by a scum thief. In the mist of all this, the other survivors, Jin, Bernard, and Libby, decide to leave Ana Lucia behind and move to meet the other group for a joyful reunion. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Aftermath
14 September 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

I am no Analucia fan, or more specifically I am not a fan of Michelle Rodriguez's performance in the role, but "Collision" is, regardless of my position on the actress playing her, an outstanding character piece, and one of the best episodes of the first half of season two. Leonard Dick and Javier Grillo-Marxuach's script is intelligent and well-structured in that they reveal the layers of Analucia's character slowly and carefully. I do think there's still some problems with Michelle Rodriguez's performance, but I do tend to think of her earlier work while criticizing her in the role, as she does succeed somewhat at showing more humanity here.

The episode is helped by tasteful direction from Stephen Williams, not always a director who gets the most out of an episode, but when not faced with directing action (at which he is rather poor) he is capable of crafting a visually strong episode and does so here, and the cast are also excellent here, particularly Naveen Andrews. The episode is a fine way to bring the tail-enders and the fuselage folk together, and none of it feels contrived or fake. I have problems with scenes like the final one here, especially given how sappy the music is, but it works okay I suppose.

"Collision" deals largely with the aftermath of Shannon's death, but while it easily could have gone for an action movie approach it instead goes for a character-based episode. There is an eventual understanding between Analucia and Sayid that is almost unexpectedly poignant, and the flashbacks are well-structured and if not consistently entertaining then certainly worth it for the final reveal, which really does succeed in making Analucia a more sympathetic character. Excellent episode.

8.5/10
