There is almost never, if ever, an episode of Lost that I dislike. And I liked tonight's, although I felt it finished stronger than it started.
Dream or hallucination sequences are always a challenge to pull off, and I found myself feeling impatient during Locke's visit to his Spirit Lodge and his ensuing airport drifting. It was a very self-conscious sequence. But the episode gained momentum as it progressed, and I found myself riveted to see whether or not Locke would shoot Eddie. I honestly wasn't sure what he would do.
I did find myself more curious about how Locke met up and ended up with Mike and Jan (those were their names, right?) than what the camp was actually up to.
The epilogue provided plenty of food for thought going forward. So what about Desmond and his latest trick, huh?
