This Week In Lost - 2/18/09

Another episode, another hole to fill. This week the Oceanic Six finds their way back to the island, but how did they get there? Well, we won't tell you that, you have to actually watch the episode. But we will give you our thoughts...

Episode 6: "316"

JDW says: This just got really interesting. Well, to put it short, the episode starts with the Oceanic 6 magically appearing on the island. But, cut back 46 hours earlier, and that's when you learn just how they got there. Turns out they have to all get on a plan and hope for it to crash, pretty grim I'd say. Catch is they have to have the circumstances as close to the original flight as possible, thus making for some interesting, albeit at this point useless, parallels.

This episode was certainly interesting, I'l give it that much. But in the end it just felt like nothing really happened. I mean, I get it, they're back on the island, but when the episode starts and ends in the same place it doesn't really get me like other episodes would.
JDW's Score: 7/10

Zach says: Not too much happened this week. We see some of the Oceanic Six back on the island after their trip, and that's about it.The episode starts with the few back on the island, then shows how they got their. It is revealed that the Dharma Initiative had another secret chamber, the Lamp Post, that guided them to the island in the first place, and using that, the gang find their way back. That's about it.

Like most episodes, this one presents more questions then answers. For instance, how did Ben get beat up and how did the rest of the crew get to the plane? What happened to them and the others?
Zach's Score: 6.5/10

Overall Score: 6.8/10
