Lost Season 6: The Substitute (Episode 4)

Usually, when I watch LOST I know I’m going to write a recap about it. I have a don’t-forget-about-that eye going in. Last night about 20 minutes in I said, “Oh, I just remembered, I’m going to recap this tomorrow.” I think it’s because I have NO IDEA what is going on in this final season of Lost. Although I’ve been confused for the last few seasons, we’ve still had this sense of an obvious journey to a resolution (ie. getting off The Island). Now we’re introduced to two new story lines: new LA and the Locke-ness Monster’s (Doc Jensen‘s title, my fave!) mission. Am I the only one who feels a little out of sorts?

PRESENT DAY LOS ANGELES

JACK is staring out the window at a white cloud and is transfixed. He comes out of his daydreaming and looks around. He’s on a plane. A familiar looking stewardess walks down the aisle and offers him a drink on the house. Jack looks across the aisle to see ROSE. They feel a little turbulence and begin to talk about planes and how  they like to stay in the air. The turbulence increases and then…nothing. The pilot corrects his course and they are fine.

And at this point my heart is sinking. It worked. They did it. The Island never happened. And now we get to see what WOULD have happened (what DID happen?) to our beloved Losties.
