Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes (credit only)


When he is confronted by a vengeful Sun, Ben promises to offer her proof that Jin is alive and on the island in exchange for her not to kill him, while Kate is angry at Jack for trying to persuade her to return to the island. Back on the island, Jin teams up with the young pregnant Danielle Rouseau and her team in 1988 where they have an encounter with the "black smoke" monster, while Locke, Charlotte, Faraday, Miles, Juliet, and Sawyer later meet up with Jin where Locke tries to lead them to the Dharma Orchid station where he hopes to turn the underground wheel to move the island in the hopes of stopping the time jumps they are going through while Charlotte's physical condition worsens with each time jump.

13 February 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Like in season four, also here in season 5 episode 5 is my favourite (until now). I really liked this one. It had everything a LOST episode needs, and what were some people arguing was missing in the last episode.

I don't want to tell anything of what is happening here, because I don't want anybody to read spoilers. You have to see it. In my opinion one of the best episodes of LOST. So all I can say is "YES".

I will have a really hard time waiting for the next episode next week (okay it will not be that hard, because I started watching again LOST from season one)
