Last week's "The Shape of Things To Come" made season four for me. It was adventurous, intense, funny, sad, and revelatory. If the season were to stop now, I'd consider it a success. Don't get me wrong. I want this season to keep going (I, for one, still want to go back to Jacob's cabin and find out who is in that damn coffin), but this season now has that epic quality that the other seasons have.
First off, before I begin to recap and review the episode, let me just warn you that I am probably going to fail to mention some parts of "The Shape of Things To Come." It was just so jam-packed with hints and clues that it would probably take me three posts to cover everything (however, if there is anything you would like to discuss, please mention them below).
Okay, enough chit-chat. This episode started off with a bang. The freighter folk forced Alex at gunpoint to deactivate the sonic fence surrounding the barracks. Soon, the freighties unleashed hell on the Losties. All in all, it was one of the most action-packed few minutes in the Lost cannon. Houses exploded. Red-shirts died. Good stuff.
