A Key Episode
1 February 2006 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

This episode is all about Ekko - the background of his arrival to the island. We find out that he is responsible and related to the Nigerian Drug Airplane that crashed on the Island. We are exposed to one of the island's secret creatures - a black smoke cloaked creature that approaches Ekko - but does not harm him. Which raises more questions as to why didn't it attack Ekko - what is so special about him? Overall this episode was very good. I have a problem with Jack's character - he just seems to get less screen time - compared to Season 1. Is it because of script or Matthew Fox's busy timetable? I liked the idea that the characters have to take shifts in the Hatch with the computer

  • it reminds me of my job - which is to sit next to a computer and do

nothing :) 8 Out of 10
