Lost Again: Season 3, Episodes 1-4

By on Sep 10, 2010 in Recaps | 0 comments

I’m on a quest to re-watch every episode of Lost, one per day. As I polish off each DVD, I’ll post my thoughts on the episodes contained therein. “A Tale of Two Cities” SYNOPSIS: We see a woman hosting a book club in what looks like a suburban community—but then the ground shakes and a plane falls from the sky, and only then do we realize that this is the Others’ community. The man we know as Henry sends Ethan and Goodwin to the fuselage crash site and to the tail, respectively. Back in the present, Jack wakes up in some sort of glass cell. The book club lady appears on the other side of the glass and introduces herself as Juliet. She has food, but Jack refuses to eat. He finally seems to relent but attacks Juliet when she enters the cell and uses her to secure his escape, and Henry lets him go. When Jack tries exiting through a door, however, water rushes in and he...

2010 Emmys: My Recap

Now that a whole week has passed since the airing of the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards, let’s pretend like I’m live-blogging the affair! But really, I’m just reviewing the tapes. Here are my thoughts about the events of the night, laid out on a (commercial-free) timeframe. 00:00:06 Jimmy Fallon and various television stars form a ragtag glee club and perform a rousing rendition of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run.” Where else can you see Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Tina Fey, Kate Gosselin, Jon Hamm, Betty White, Jane Lynch, Jorge Garcia, Nina Dobrev, Joel McHale, Randy Jackson, and Tim Gunn in one skit—and one that happens to be hilarious? It’s a TV junkie’s dream! 00:09:03 The comedy montage features such priceless moments as the “moon landing,” Mitchell vs. the pigeon, and “two things flaming at...

I’m on a quest to re-watch every episode of Lost, one per day. As I polish off each DVD, I’ll post my thoughts on the episodes contained therein. (Even if it’s a couple days late!) “?” SYNOPSIS: In a dream, Ana Lucia and Yemi tell Eko that John Locke needs his help. Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and Locke arrive at the Swan to find Michael stumbling out of it. The group finds the bodies of Ana and Libby inside. Ana’s dead, but Libby suddenly coughs up blood. Eko and Locke go off to track “Henry,” but Eko’s real motive is finding the question mark (a buzzword from his dream), and he demands that Locke take him there. Locke gives him his version of the blast door map with the question mark in the middle. The two of them happen upon the Nigerian drug plane and camp there for the night. Meanwhile, Jack realizes he can do nothing to save Libby and sends...

I’m on a quest to re-watch every episode of Lost, one per day. As I polish off each DVD, I’ll post my thoughts on the episodes contained therein. (Even if it’s a couple days late!) “Lockdown” SYNOPSIS: Sayid, Charlie, and Ana Lucia find Jennifer Gale’s grave and then Henry Gale’s balloon. In the Swan, blast doors come down around the living area, trapping Locke. He manages to stop one door from descending fully, and he asks Henry to help him stabilize it so that Locke can enter the Numbers. But the door suddenly drops as Locke tries to slide under it, crushing his leg. Henry then has to navigate through the air ducts to get to the computer. From Locke’s point of view, we hear the countdown reach zero, and then black lights illuminate the living area, revealing some sort of map drawn on the blast door. But before long, the blast doors recede, and...

I’m on a quest to re-watch every episode of Lost, one per day. As I polish off each DVD, I’ll post my thoughts on the episodes contained therein. “The Long Con” SYNOPSIS: Jack and Locke agree to both know the armory’s lock combination and to always consult each other when they want to use it. Locke also tells Jack that Sawyer is hoarding pills, and Jack retrieves them despite Sawyer’s threats. Someone attacks Sun as she works in her garden, and Sawyer and Kate find her unconscious. Ana Lucia suggest that the Others have returned, but Sawyer suggests to Kate that maybe Ana herself did it to scare people into joining the army she’s building with Jack, and Kate relays the same accusation to Jack. Then Kate begins to think that Ana did it to get the guns. She sends Sawyer to the Swan to warn Locke, and Sawyer gets Locke to hide the guns. Jack arrives at the...

I’m on a quest to re-watch every episode of Lost, one per day. As I polish off each DVD, I’ll post my thoughts on the episodes contained therein. “What Kate Did” SYNOPSIS: Jack is tending to a feverish Sawyer when Sawyer mutters that he loves Kate. Kate later watches over him so that Jack can attend Shannon’s funeral, at which Sayid says a few eloquent words. Sawyer suddenly wakes and grabs Kate, yelling, “Why did you kill me?” Kate bolts, leaving Sawyer on the floor and no one to enter the Numbers into the computer. Jack and Locke arrive at the Swan just in time to reset the clock. Jack finds Kate in the jungle, and Kate has a meltdown, kisses him, looks crazy, and runs off. She returns to the Swan and pours her heart out to Sawyer as he sleeps. Then Sawyer regains consciousness, and Kate seems well again. Meanwhile, Eko gives Locke a missing part of the...
