Storyline

The deranged Michael locks Jack and Locke in the ammunition storage room and leaves the shelter to go looking for Walt. Sawyer joins to Jack and Locke in an expedition to find Michael, but Jack asks Kate to stay with the computer at the hatch. While hiking in the jungle, Jack remembers the death of a patient, his comforting of the patient's daughter Gabriela, and how Sarah left him because work was always taking him away from the house, and her. The group is surrounded by "The Others" where their emissary, known as "Mr. Friendly" tells them that they must return to their beach camp without their guns, otherwise Kate, whom the others now have captive, will be executed before them. Meanwhile at the hatch, Hurley and Charlie pass the time playing old records, while Sun argues with Jin about wanting to help out Jack and the rest of the search party.

A suspenseful hunt
14 February 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

When 'Lost' was in its prime, it was must-watch television. Remember first watching it, found it remarkably easy to get into, was hooked from the start and was on Season 3 by the end of one week. The general consensus is that the final season is a disappointment and cannot disagree.

"The Hunting Party" is not quite one of my favourite Season 2 episodes, in a strong season with several high quality episodes. Quality is still high though and it is a hunting party that is a lot of fun and very suspenseful. The Others have a real creepiness and provide a tense, sinister and somewhat cool (like with the torches) conflict, especially Tom.

Jack's flashback avoids being soap operatic and gives further interest into his past and what happened for him to get to where he became. The hatch hugely entertains and intrigues.

My only real complaint is that there are cliff-hangers on 'Lost' that have more impact and go somewhere more.

Visually, 'Lost' continues to be stylish, atmospheric and beautiful in "The Hunting Party", as always making the most of the island setting. The music is as always chilling and understated, the writing is tight and smart and the direction is skilled throughout.

Overall, fun and suspenseful. 9/10 Bethany Cox
