This episode felt like seeing a compass pointing south instead of north.
7 May 2009 | by igoatabaseSee all my reviews

This time John and Ben were back and to tell the truth I really missed their arc. However It's really interesting to see that the writers keep developing the whole John and Jack relationship, man of faith versus man of science. But in some way the recent events managed to blur the lines between these two, making the story even more interesting. For example I specially enjoyed the scenes between Jack and Kate. In fact some of their dialogs astonished because I never expected specific words to ever come out from their mouth. I also really liked John's scenes and one of them should blow you away. In fact we already saw one of that type but involving other characters. But it doesn't make it less impressive. In other productions viewing a scene from different points is common but here time is involved, shifting anything further and preventing us from anticipating things. So most events are unpredictable, making the show even more fascinating. An other element I liked was the mystic side of some scenes, similar to the one with Ben in Dead is Dead. Last but not least do I have to tell about Juliet and Sawyer ? Seriously it's impossible not to care about these two. They're just the perfect match. Moreover I really appreciate the time spent to develop their relationship with Jack and Kate. Connections have never been so important. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if Kate and Juliet were actually twin sisters, just joking.

So it seems the Island will never stop to amaze us. Every time we think the characters know what they're doing, some radical event manages to switch polarities.
