Storyline

In the aftermath of Juliet detonating the hydrogen bomb, Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Miles, Hurley and Jin find themselves still on the island in contemporary 2007 where they try to rescue Juliet in the remains of the Swan Station hatch, while Hurley has a meeting with the ghostly Jacob who tells them to take the severely wounded Sayid to a sanctuary temple. Meanwhile, Ben discovers that 'Locke' is not the same Locke who arrived and he wants to have a few words with the de facto leader Richard. In an alternate 2004, Flight 815 is shown landing at Los Angeles without incident where most of the group intermingle with the other passengers without knowledge of them ever meeting.

Goofs

In the bathroom at the airport, it appears that all the stall doors open inward, as they do in most bathrooms. However, the single stall Kate enters happens to have a door that swings outward. This appears to be simply so she can kick the door outward and ambush the marshal. See more »

Bomb unexpected side effects, fresh new character development and brain teasing questions but one disappointing story arc
7 February 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Note : This review covers parts 1 and 2 of LA X

The Final Chapter recap was so well done that I naively jumped right into LA X crosshair with the mind full of the past events. Of course I remembered that Juliet successfully detonated the bomb in The Incident but my memory of what happened to some other characters wasn't as fresh. The story took off right after the big white flash. Considering how the past episodes were twisted and the writers's imagination amazingly vivid I really didn't know what to expect. Of course the adventure involved our favorite characters from "gorgeous don't mess with me" Kate, "romantic con" Sawyer to "not so man of science" Jack without forgetting the mysterious Johns Locke.

But what really happened to them ? And what about the island ? Did they land in Los Angeles as first planned ? And who's really the man behind Jacob's death ? All I can tell is that if you enjoyed the past seasons for their unpredictable and surreal arcs you'll definitely not be disappointed by this two hours premiere. As previously you'll get answers but the new developments also arose many deep questions.

All the elements that make Lost so fascinating are back, from the mystical vibe to the character connections jungle. Last but not least even if it wasn't perfect I don't see how someone could be disappointed by it. We could ask for much more but I know the best is yet to come and it's going to be one hell of a season. In fact the most surprising thing about LA X was the character development. We just never saw the characters like that. Remember how Jack and John's profiles were switched in Follow the Leader ? Well you better lose the compass because it's apparently pointing two directions at the same time. But Daniel Faraday and Desmond Hume taught us that time is relative and not a constant so you'll have to watch it to understand what I'm talking about.
