Irresistible Evangeline Lilly and Josh Holloway performance, intense Kate dual story, some disappointing temple elements but mirror connections and strange cliffhanger
10 February 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Even if this episode title revealed the featured character for once it didn't negatively affect the experience. In fact it made the anticipation even more intriguing because Kate is definitely my favorite female character. Evangeline Lilly is so beautiful and talented. Moreover Kate is not the stereotype of the murderer next door because we all know her story is that much more complex than that. And that's exactly what this episode was about, better understand who she is.

As expected the story was split like in LA X. The island and urban arcs developed further. The first one was not only about her but also a lot about Sayid and Sawyer. Josh Holloway gave by far his best performance and his emotional words and authentic acting could even turn a stone into a vivid gem. His con profile makes him so unpredictable that guessing his next move is always a pleasure for the mind. And like on a chessboard once the black island arc had developed for a few minutes the focus turned to the white urban arc featuring Kate and Claire. To tell the truth I never really liked Emilie de Ravin as Claire Littleton but I think she did a better job in this episode and her interaction with Kate was quite interesting. Moreover I'm sure some young or pregnant women relate to her so she's definitely a mandatory character.

However even if I found the acting really good at times and the dual story captivating I have to admit that there're still a few elements that bug me. For example I'm not really fond of the temple and don't think the Japanese guy is convincing. He reminds me too much of the Asian scientist who managed the Dharma Initiative. Therefore he's less believable. I also don't like the its sets because they're far too cheap and almost jar with the jungle. It should be more chaotic and wild, like the characters. It's specially disappointing considering the attention to some details like the caustic effect during the pool scenes, where Sayid was drowned. The different make-ups, specially on Matthew Fox and Lilly, also greatly contribute to make the two arcs believable. Both Kates are wild but the one on the island is definitely dirtier, and it only makes her more irresistible.

Last but not least let's not forget how some new elements are intriguing. They definitely opened new connections between the characters and left a few question marks on their way. What's the link between Sayid and Jack ? What's next for Claire and Swayer ? But in the end the cliffhanger definitely stole the screen because I had waited for it during the whole LA X episode and it never happened. Now they're getting at what this 6th and last season should be all about, the connection. The one that probably binds the variable and the constant. The one that links both worlds, the island to the rest. Do I see some smoke far away or is the monster already upon us ? If the events were occurring on Skull Island, King Kong would definitely be scared like a little and fragile monkey. But the problem with Lost is that watching it makes you dream of electric polar bears so I wouldn't be surprised to see John Locke turn into a giant ape, destroy the temple walls and escape with our gorgeous Kate in distress.

What Kate did. Why don't you find it out all by yourself ?
