What an awesome episode, with a great nod to Vonnegut!
6 March 2008 | by adog682See all my reviews

This season, and especially this episode, of Lost has blown me away in the same fashion as Season 1. It's fantastic!

I'm a huge fan of time travel, and have been since I was old enough to remember. I really appreciated this episode's nod to Kurt Vonnegut's idea of becoming "unstuck" from time was very well done. It captured everything I imagined about Billy Pilgrim in 'Slaughterhouse 5.' While the leaps were shorter with Desmond, it is still a powerful thing to see. My question is, now that Desmond has an anchor, will he stop jumping? And what about his memory? Thank you, Lost, for bringing this concept to life for me!

The ship isn't nearly as impressive as I thought it would be, but that is similar to how common the hatch was when they broke into it. I'm still curious about why the time disruption happened, but the plot twists of this episode were enough to both satisfy my curiosity and intrigue it on other levels. Hopefully tonight's episode will keep up the excitement. Desmond episodes are hard acts to follow, but, with the shortened season, I'm counting on more episodes like this and fewer slow ones.
