Lost – Season 5 – #1&2

22 01 2009

Well, last night certainly was eventful… I was joined in my Lost premiere viewing by some friends. Via Twitter. And WOW. When each season starts, everyone thinks it can’t be anywhere near as good as the last one. And then after the premiere, everyone’s minds are working overtime trying to figure out everything that the new season just threw at them.

And this season was NO different. From the beginning, we were unable to keep track of where the episodes were in the general Lost timeline. Characters past & present were thrown at us left & right. Present day, in the past, in the future? Where are we? Huh?faraday“Because You Left” was really, in my opinion, just a pre-cursor to episode 2, “The Lie.” “Because You Left” showed us Paul Chang dealing with an issue with “The Orchid” on the island… it showed Sayid nearly getting himself killed and ending up unconscious…  it showed us Locke near the “drug plane” & a run in with Etan. And it showed us the beach, where the survivors realize the burning freighter is no where to be found…

boatEpisode 2, “The Lie,”  is where things started happening. The “Oceanic 6” along with Desmond, Frank and Penny are seen discussing what to tell the world when they are found…

Meanwhile, back on the Island all kinds of crazy shit is going on… Charlotte is getting nosebleeds, apparently from the … Rose and Bernard are bickering… the survivors are bombarded by flaming arrows… (I swear, I had nothing to do with the death of “Neil” aka “Frogurt”)

And then, as if the sky opened up just for Chachi, we see Hurley driving an unconscious Sayid down the street. Hurley sees & hears a police car trying pull him over… and who is the officer? Why none other than Ana Lucia…

There were two parts of the show where my Tweets and I had questions. First, we see Ben talking to someone at a butcher shop. Apparently this is where Ben is going to store Locke’s corpse for the time being… Who is this woman? I’ve found out that she is “Jill.” She looks very familiar, but I’ve yet to find any evidence that the actress or the character have appeared before, even in flashbacks.

The last part is the end, where Ben is seen speaking to a white haired woman who warns him that he only has 70 hours to get the Oceanic 6 back to the island. This woman is “Ms. Hawking.” Ms. Hawking was previously seen way back in Season 3 as the jewelry store worker when Desmond goes to buy a ring for Penny.

Now,  please bookmark Lost… and Gone Forever for his instant reactions to the episodes last night. Also, go ahead and bookmark Lostpedia too, since it helped me figure out who Jill and Ms. Hawking were…

Finally, the best line from last night, which I can’t stop laughing when I see it… From dacheet, “Who throws a Hot Pocket?!”

All of you who aren’t on the Lost band-wagon, Drink the Kool-Aid, yo. It’s delicious and it goes with everything. We swear.

I had the best time last night with everyone! You’re way more perceptive than I am though – I can’t think too much about what is happening with all the whos and whys during the show. I’ll drive myself bat shit crazy.

Can’t wait until next Wednesday!
