Finally, some good ol' Lost action.
Episode 12 - "Dead is Dead"
Zach says: This week returns to the current time, with Ben and Locke, and also the more traditional Lost storyline. This episode focuses on Ben, and how he came to be. It starts with him as a child, healing from his gun shot wound, where he is greeted by none other than Charles Widmore. You see what happens with them and how Charles gets booted from the island. Later on, Ben and Locke meet up with Sun on their journey to meet the monster, that black smoke creature. I don't want to spill out everything that happens, but it's pretty awesome, and most definitely more Lost-esque as opposed to the dramatic crap that has been brewing the last few weeks. Next week looks like it'll be good as well. Huzzah!
Zach's Score: 8.5/10
JDW says: Well, this week was certainly a return to form for Lost, with an episode full of suspense and mystery, and not pointless drama. The episode mainly deals with Locke and Ben returning to the island so that Ben may be "judged", but the flashbacks deal with Ben and Charles Widmore and their interactions throughout the years.
What can I say? Compared to previous weeks and their Dharma whining, this episode blows them away. Not only do we find out ... at least what we assume is the source of one of the island's biggest secrets, but we also find out that Ben may actually be human after all. If only the rest of the season was this good.
JDW's Score: 9/10
Overall Score: 8.8/10
