Ana Lucia's story
4 December 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Having taken one of its most dramatic turns two episodes ago, with the death of a main character at the hands of a fellow Oceanic 815 survivor, Lost keeps exploring the darker side of the human soul with a story centered around one of the new cast members: Michelle Rodriguez' tormented and violently inclined Ana Lucia Cortez.

Introduced in the Season One finale in Jack's airport flashback, she was subsequently established as one of the show's most bad-ass characters. Now, having shot and killed Shannon, she has to deal with a grieving Sayid, who tries to shoot her but is knocked unconscious through the combined effort of Ana Lucia and Eko. She decides to stay on her own in the jungle and keeps Sayid tied to a tree, while the rest of the group is sent to the main survivor camp. When told of the incident, Jack and Locke want to take action but are stopped by Eko. Additionally, Jack and Kate use equipment found in the hatch to cure Sawyer.

The flashbacks flesh out Ana Lucia's personality by revealing she used to be a cop. In the unspecified past shown here, she has recovered from being shot and tries to adjust to the stressful life on the force. When she's told the guy who shot her has been arrested and she has to identify him, she claims they have the wrong man, much to her mother's chagrin. However, things get pretty violent soon afterwards...

For the first time, the series focuses on someone who wasn't part of the original group of castaways, and it works pretty well: save for some clichéd dialogue between Ana Lucia and her mother, the character's arc is solid and serves two purposes, namely providing the necessary back-story to understand her more questionable actions and setting the foundations for further developments, not unlike Kate. Still, Maggie Grace's departure does leave a bit of a sour aftertaste, even if it allows Naveen Andrews to continue exploring the various facets of his role to compelling and harrowing effect. His last line to Rodriguez alone should have been enough to get him an Emmy.
