Season 4 plays one of its trump cards, surreal Twin Olivias, award-winning guest star and masterful strange writing
1 October 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Wow ! It's what you will keep saying all along because this second episode was nothing like the first and more reminiscent of… The freaking third season ! Remember its innovative red and blue format ? Well the writers on this show are so talented that they managed to enrich their winning formula with a new parameter. You better pay attention because it's a televisual experience that pushed the science-fiction barrier in a new direction. This time there were far much more interactions between Prime Olivia and Alternate Olivia. Again I couldn't help comparing the visual effects and editing to Ringer. It's definitely the last time I will because they don't play in the same league. The execution is so flawless and bold that you just forget that what you see… is impossible ! It's as mind blowing and puzzling as an optical illusion expect Anna Torv is far much more charming than M. C. Escher's work. Moreover her performance as Bolivia is delightful and beside a different persona she also injected some comic relief to the serious and fascinating topics covered during the investigation. As for the guest we had none other than John Pyper-Ferguson who had already impressed me as Tomas Vergis on Caprica. Defining his character as ambivalent is inexact but it's the closest term that can be found in the dictionary of our world. The actor's performance and dual writing are both award-winning. It was a contemporary take at Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Fringe style. They drilled a hole in Stevenson's brain, extracted the neurons that allowed him to write his wicked masterpiece and injected the genius substance to produce One Night in October. September, 30th 2011 ? The day the audience orbited its jaw around its TV. Still there were a few elements that deserved to be questioned. First the risky game played by both sides is what made this episode so excellent but even if Olivia warned Phillip Broyles about it multiple times I'm surprised they still haven't learned their lesson. Haven't they heard about the butterfly effect ? Second the "Where is Peter ?" game is far too anecdotic to be entertaining and the ending was predictable. In fact considering how well written the rest was I'm surprised they made such an easy mistake. Third… plot holes ? If Peter never existed, there shouldn't be a portal between the two universes. I read reviews and comments pointing them out but I don't think there're plot holes. The whole point of season 4 should be to explain why there's still amber in the other side for instance. Moreover we have to consider that in the pilot the Observers mentioned Peter was leaking. To sum things up, these are just captivating topics and very intriguing questions to talk about. Stay tuned Lost fans, the answers aren't coming.
