What I'm Watching: Lost

Lost: Season 4, Episode 7 “Ji Yeon” (B-)

Okay, so the episode itself sort of sucks, but whoa – they flashed both forward and back in the same episode! It was obvious that something was wrong when Jin seemed to be taking his time to get to the hospital and Sun waited to call him until she started going into labor, but it is such a novel idea and such an interesting one that should prove cool if ever used again on the show. Per last week’s advertisement, Sun is supposed to be #6, but does that mean Aaron is one of them? Or do Ben, or maybe Desmond or Juliet, count as one of the Oceanic Six, having somehow posed as people on the flight? Or maybe Michael, whose return is hardly a surprise. In his absence, I had forgotten how much Sayid hates him, since the last time they saw each other, Michael had just gotten everyone captured. I am unsure of the relationship between Desmond and Michael – I do not think they ever met, but next week’s episode, titled “Meet Kevin Johnson”, is sure to be awesome and hopefully provide some answers. It is an inventive way of filling in the gaps in the whole freighter story, like maybe why no one on the ship cared when one of their number just up and jumped off the ship with chains to weigh her down.
