**spoilers begin immediately**
Oh, Losties!! Do you feel like the season has finally started?! The last scene with all the castaways reuniting on the beach, their beach, OUR BEACH was just a sigh of relief. I have felt very displaced during the last few episodes as the Losties casually pass each other in the jungle as if it were a High School hallway. Seeing a huge group of people talk (and one look quietly on) was just so Lost and it felt nice. It felt very Season 1.
On the other hand, I felt….weird when this episode was done. I think it’s because this episode was all about Ben. If you’ve been following my recaps for awhile you know I have refused to like Ben. The man is a poisonous liar and quite possibly the creepiest man in the world. But in this episode, I wanted to ::whisper:: hug him.
Let’s get to the recap so we can talk more coherently, ok?
