Storyline

In the aftermath of Alija Flight 316 crashing on the island, John Locke inexplicably appears, back from the dead, and tries to bring the survivors together, two of whom include the shady Ilana (who was with Sayid on the flight) as well as a fellow man, named Caesar, who try to make sense of what is going on. Locke flashes back to the time months earlier when he moved the island and was transported to the deserts of North Africa, and was found by Charles Widmore who asked Locke to convince the Oceanic 6 to return to the island.

"I remember dying"
26 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

It's amazing how this series keeps topping itself. I thought that the previous episode, "316", was the best of Season 5 so far, but "The Life And Death Of Jeremy Bentham" is arguably on an even higher league (we're talking "The Man From Tallahassee" league here). The mythology of LOST is getting thicker and thicker, and the lines between good & evil, life & death, past, present & future, are getting blurrier and blurrier. And yet the basic format of TLADOJB is rather simple: a series of one-on-one conversations between John Locke and a number of other characters, both new and old. Terry O'Quinn has always been one of the very best actors on the show, and here EVERYONE opposite him rises to his level. This episode is unusual, shocking and brilliant. ***1/2 out of 4.
