Desmond Hume (credit only)


Kate discovers that someone knows the secret of Aaron's true parental lineage and she tries to stay one step ahead of the sinister lawyers hounding her. Sun (while assisting Kate) plots to kill Ben whom she blames for the death of Jin. Sayid tries to find out who is targeting him and is wary about trusting Jack and Ben, who plans to break Hurley out of jail. Back on the island, the dramatic shifts through time are placing the lives of the remaining island survivors in extreme peril. Charlotte is sick with a mystery illness forcing Locke, Juliet, Miles, Sawyer, and Faraday to hike to the Orchid Dharma Station to try find a way to offset the time hopping pattern. Elsewhere, Jin is revealed to have survived the freighter explosion, and washes up on the island where he is found... by a young Danielle Rousseau in 1988 who struggles to survive with her shipwrecked companions.

Lost = Science fiction
9 February 2009 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

After 3 and a half seasons of not knowing, this season is a full blown sci-fi show.. and i love it! A lot of people actually don't like the whole time-travelling-thing, but i think it works really well(way better than in heroes.. flamewar!!). i also love that the shows has gone to answering-mode. every episode gives you 4-5 answers to really big mysteries. you can't complain that the biggest mysteries stay unanswered for now.. we still got more than one season ahead.. and after all the episodes are so dense that i can't even think of anything more to put in there. awesome. hopefully we'll see rousseau's backstory through the next weeks! Btw.. loved how the title fooled me to think it was about aaron.
