Lost Review 5.06 - '316' Part 2 - Featured

And of course in true Lost fashion, Ben has been badly beaten (yes, again. The guy gets hit more than Rocky Balboa) and tells Jack to pick up Locke's body where he puts the shoes on and has strange morbid last confrontation with him. Locke is lying dead in a coffin while Jack does the shoe swap and says to the body that wherever he is he'd be laughing from what Jack was doing. But he simply gives the letter back without reading it and closes the coffin saying 'Rest In Peace'.


The final act as it were of the episode comes about now at LAX as Jack is boarding himself and Locke's body to flight 316. He sees all the factors in common with 815 now. Sayid is in custody with a Federal Marshall (proxy for Kate being in custody), Kate arrives, Sun arrives, and they meet Hurley in the departure lounge. By the way, Hurley bringing a guitar I think definately has something to do with Charlie. I'm not too sure if it's going to be explained that well when we find out who told Hurley to be on the plane, but I thought it was a nice touch. Like Hurley is grasping at straws that even this guitar is a factor to help be the same as 815. Well, the plane takes off now and we are truly on our way back to the island. Jack tells Kate that he believes now but we're interupted by the fact that Frank is piloting the plane. Another connection to the island. What made me laugh was the fact that Frank didn't seem all that bothered when he realised who the passengers were and simply says "We're not going to Guam, are we Jack". Classic Frank.


Finally Jack opens the letter from Locke that seems to be destined to be read by him. It says 'Jack, I wished you had of believed me'. A message from the grave to Jack saying that if he hadn't of left the island, none of this would of been happening. A plane shimmer later and we're now at the beginning again and of course in the last minute of the show it was going to throw us something interesting. We have not found out yet where flight 316 'went down' in time, but we finish with a Dharma van pulling up to Jack, Kate and Hurley and a man steps out with a rifle.....this man is Jin.....wearing a brand new spiffy Dharma Initiative suit.


What this episode has also given us, is a few teasers of two new characters. The 'Federal Marshall' and the guy who was behind Jack in line for the flight. We know from a previous episode that Sawyer and the gang found water bottles from an Indian flight and then people started shooting at them in the water. So the questions are:-


- Were these two people shooting at our survivors during the time skip? I mean we know the woman is probably carrying a gun in the same way Kate's Marshall was.


- Do these people work for Widmore? And if so, is Sayid working with them? He left that Dock pretty angry and said to Jack 'If I see you again, it will not be pleasant'.


- Who told Hurley to go on that flight?


- When did that flight crash?


- And also the obvious one, how easy is it to get a job with the Dharma Initiative and does Jin enjoy it. (joke)


Well, I'll leave you there for now.


See y'all on the island next week...

One of the big questions I have is why and who beat up Ben so badly?
He said to Jack as he was leaving the church "I made a promise to an old friend of mine. Just a loose end that needs tying up".
Does this mean he made good on his promise to Windmore that he was going to kill his daughter?

ooops, sorry, thought I added that question! Yes for sure, a little back story is definately on the cards for where Ben went after the church and since he knows Desmond was in town, he's probably guessed Penny is as well. But yeah, who gave Ben the beating?!?

So many questions! Excellent review of all that happened - I think it was one of the best episodes this season, if not all of Lost as things actually happened and the story progressed, yet still plenty of mystery. I'm very curious about Ben - it had seemed when he threatened Widmore that he didn't know Widmore's daughter was Desmond's girlfriend/wife, but maybe in 3 years, we could imagine he's figured that out. I would almost say that Ben isn't awful enough to kill her, especially knowing about Desmond, but then Ben goes and says something like, "Does it matter?" when Jack asked what would happen to the other people on their plane when it crashed. But then, if Ben did go to kill Penny, did he succeed, (I'm going to assume not) but why or why not? Does Penny have body guards or incredible self-defense skills or what?

Yes, I've taken it for granted that Ben knows about Penny and Desmond. Over the course of the show he has been able to get backgrounds of everyone on flight 815 so I presumed naturally he was able to do the same for his arch-enemy's daughter and her life. Which revolves around Desmond. Not too sure if he's going to kill her right away as Ben loves to use people as weapons or bargaining chips so he may hold her hostage. Which gives a wonderful opening for Des to come in riding on a white horse to rescue Penny and win his honour back with her father....ooooh that sounds plausable!

We get a few answers and then we get lots more questions. That is lost, frustrating and brilliant at the same time.
I think Ben would have no problem killing Penny right away. All logic seems to disappear when it comes to Ben's so called daughter. Look what he did to the army dude in the orchid.
In all the choas of everything else, I forgot about Aaron. Did she give him to Claire's mother? Who knows. I am sure this will be on their large answer list.
Didn't pick up on it being one of Sayid's comrades. Interesting twist.
Can't wait until next week........

I loved that episode. Jack is such a great character.
I imagine we will be going back to the old flashback routine, showing what happened to each character in order to persuade them to go back to the island.
I wonder - did everyone on the plane get teleported to the island, or just certain characters?
I hope Frank is in it more, he's cool.

Also, I'm amazed that things have moved forward already - I can hardly imagine what's going to happen next on the island.

Seems to me that Ben killing Penny, or at least giving her a solid thrashing would be as good a reason as any to get Desmond back on the island. I don't know how he would do it, what with the flight having left, but if Ben hurt Penny, there's no reason to think that Desmond wouldn't try and give the same back to Ben.
