Episode 5.13 "Some Like It Hoth" Recap

Previously on Lost: Juliet, Kate and Sawyer conspired to save Young Ben's life by taking him to the Hostiles while Miles and Hurley engaged in hilarious time travel speculation.

Tonight's episode of Lost pleases me not only because it's the first Miles-centric episode of the series, but because the title is a pun, and I love puns. It combines the brilliant Marilyn Monroe film with a Star Wars reference. Will Miles and Hurley dress up like women before taking shelter in the carcass of a tauntaun?

There's no previously on package, we just go straight into an Asian woman renting an apartment with her cute little son. The woman looks an awful lot like Dr. Chang's wife as seen in the opening scene from this season. And if you think I'm just being a racist and saying all Asian women look alike, she's played by the same actress, so sorry to spoil the big reveal, but as you probably guessed a long time ago, Miles is totally Dr. Chang's son.

She pays the landlord and tells him how her husband is out of the picture. Young Miles takes a tour of the dilapidated apartment complex. He hears something and walks into a room with a dead man. He screams until his mom shows up and Young Miles tells her the dead man is still talking to him. That one scene is infinitely better than the entire movie The Sixth Sense, but maybe I'm just saying that because I hate M. Night Shyamalan.

Back on the Island, Kate and Sawyer call up Miles and tell him to erase the tape of them taking Young Ben out to the Hostiles. He tries, but gets interrupted by Horace who has a super secret mission for Miles that's part of his Circle of Trust. Lamest secret society name ever. Horace asks him to take a bag out to Radzinsky in a remote location that's Hostile territory, literally.

Miles does and he learns the bag is actually a body bag for...well, a body. Radzinsky has two cronies drag out a dead body and tells Miles to take it back to Horace. He won't tell Miles what happened to him, but that's kind of a moot point since Miles can talk to dead people.
