Just the right bit of everything ( Spoilers )
7 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Just finished watching this episode, and it has the right bit of everything. Fast-paced excitement, action, romance, it also has it touching and crossroads moments. This episode serves as a great opening for the finale, we already know what to look for; the hydrogen bomb detonation by Jack with the help of Richards, the face-up between Jacob and Locke, and the sub with the love triangle between Kate, Sawyer and Juliette. If there is one thing I wanted in this episode, it would be to show the new survivors and what they plan for the island.

The shifting for Jack to become a man of destiny seemed very convincing. John Locke presuming his powers with confidence might have needed some ground work. He has this incredible confidence of what he is doing, while Ben moved to the back seat. There is a lot of dynamic of this season, things changing rapidly. While slow at first, now it is catching up; this episode has a lot going on in one hour and it makes you think about the finality till Wednesday!
