Welcome to Lost-vivor — all the mystery and adventure of LOST with an added dash of Survivor-style competition! Please note that the section ahead contains spoilers for this week’s episode of LOST. Proceed at your own risk.
|Why She’s This Week’s Winner:
Process of elimination, basically. Sayid was unconscious the entire episode, Hurley allowed himself to be arrested for multiple homicides he didn’t commit, Juliet and Sawyer were captured by the Hostiles, Jack and Ben didn’t do anything interesting, and Locke didn’t show up until the very end. At least the Ghost of Ana Lucia has some decent advice to offer.
“Oh, yeah — Libby says ‘Hi.’”
|Why He’s This Week’s Loser:
It seems poor Neil was put on the Nikki/Paulo fast track. Instead of popping up and annoying audiences and castaways alike for half a season before meeting his grisly demise, Frogurt got all up in Bernard and Sawyer’s respective grills and then took a flaming arrow to the chest five minutes later. See you in another life, brotha.
I’m going to go with the whole flaming arrow thing. I guess it’s still better than being buried alive, though.
Confused by the new format? Check out the recap of “Because You Left” for more details.
“The Lie” wasn’t quite the WTF-laden thrill ride of “Because You Left,” but it was a strong episode nonetheless. I still find the events taking place on the Island more interesting than the Oceanic Six stuff, but Hurley’s story was quite a bit of fun. I had no idea the big guy loved Shih Tzus! I’m also rather intrigued by Ben’s off-island contacts — i.e. Jill the corpse-hiding butcher. Oh, and the reveal of Ms. Hawking, the creepy jewelry store clerk who confronted a time-hopping Desmond in Season Three’s “Flashes Before Your Eyes,” was pure awesomeness.
That’s it for “The Lie.” I’ll check back in the next couple of days with a quick recap of “Jughead,” and we should be back on schedule. Take care!
