Lost Indeed
24 January 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In this sequel, Sayid is attacked in a motel and wounded by a dart; he kills the aggressors and Hurley brings him home. When Hurley's father seeks help for Sayid with Jack, he calls Ben and tells the location of Hurley. Kate escapes with Aaron and meets Sun in Los Angeles. Meanwhile the island is jumping through time and the survivors are in danger.

This episode is worse than "Because you Left", and it seems that in this season the camera will hide the face of the character, showing only hands or legs or the body, trying to give tension to the scene. The introduction of time traveling by the authors and consequently many paradoxes is not intriguing but messy. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

16 April 2013

Three years before, the Oceanic Six decides to lie to protect the group that was left in the island against the will of Hurley. Hurley brings Sayid, who is wounded, to his house and his father decides to take Sayid to Jake. In Los Angeles, Kate brings Aaron to meet Sun. In the island, the camping is attacked by the Others and Sawyer and Juliet are captured and rescued by Locke. Ben visits Hurley to invite him to go back to the island, but Hurley prefers to surrender to the police.

Now I am revisiting "Lost" on DVD and the confused plot does not resolve many mysteries of the previous seasons. But I have been watching several episodes per day and now is easier to not get so lost with the plot. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil) "The Lie"
