The Return of the Leader
20 April 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Kate and Jack are captured by Charles Widmore but Eloise decides to listen to Jack and take them to the place where the hydrogen bomb is hidden. Jack, Sayid, Richard and Eloise swim beneath the camping and reach the bomb. Meanwhile Sawyer and Juliet are interrogated by the violent Radzinsky and Sawyer tells that they should stop drilling the Swan and leave the island. Hurley, Jin and Miles are found by Chang and they disclose that they are from the future. Locke, Richard, Sun and Ben go to the camp of The Others and Locke tells that he will meet Jacob and invite The Others to join him in his quest.

"Follow the Leader" is another confused episode of "Lost", with the return of the leader Locke that surprisingly wants to kill Jacob. Jack wants to explode the bomb to reset the lives of the passengers of the Oceanic flight as if each one of them had a perfect life before crashing on the island. It is very difficult to understand the motivation of these characters. My vote is six.
