In recapping a show like Lost one must have a photographic memory, the ability to keep several story lines straight at once and pick up on small nuances and minor clues. I have none of these special skills. I do however have a Tivo. And this, my lostie friends is how we will be able to discuss Season 5’s premiere. I walked away from the show absolutely dumbfounded. I don’t know if I’m shocked, sad, excited or happy. I’m just dumbfounded. Too many things happened. In one way questions were answered. But at the same time, we’re still just barely scratching the surface of the unfathomable depths of the mysterious Lost. My husband just informed me that if I do a literal recap of the whole show, it will take you longer to read than if you just watched the episode. That may be true. So, I’ll try to be brief and hit the highlights. TRY is the keyword.
Enough talking, let’s get to the recapping, ok? I think it would be easiest to go in actual order of events. But since that is impossible, we’ll just stumble around till we hit it all, ok?
