LOST S4. I really enjoyed S4. This season brought out what is great about LOST: The mysteries of the island intertwined with the mysteries of the people. Who were the Oceanic 6? How did they get off the island and not the rest of the survivors? What happened to make Jack regret his decision to leave? Who died and was in the coffin?
Season 4 just flew by for me. The pace picked up, the action increased and the melodrama was kept to a minimum (no cages, yeah); although the love triangle became a love quadrangle (Kate Sawyer Jack Juliet) and a new triangle (Ben Juliet Goodwin). But I will never forget Sun mourning over Jin or the heartbreak on Kate’s face when Jack tells her she should stop caring about Aaron and then when Jack leaves under the addiction of drugs.
And seeing Hurley revert back to the mental institution, and a huge shocker – Sayid working as Ben’s assassin, Wow!
Last year we had Nikki and Paulo. This year made up for that detour Big time with perfect introduction of 4 new characters Daniel, Miles, Charlotte, and Frank all with their own ties to the island or flight 815.
It was a great season and watching the DVD’s brought it all back. I especially liked the gun segment and watching all the flashbacks in their proper order (even scenes from S3). Wow those were great scenes and great acting especially from Matthew Fox who tied it all together with his descent into maddness for his guilt of leaving the island. Who would have predicted that, not me.
Okay, now for a few questions. In the deleted scenes Claire asks Hurley if they are dead (after seeing a vision of her dead father). Is Claire really dead, I can’t tell? But how did she survive her house being blown up? How did Miles walk through a sonic fence? I thought he was a ghostbuster but not able to read sonic energy. How did Ben teleport himself to a location with his passports when he said that time travel off the island was unpredictable? Well, these are deleted scenes so maybe the writers decided not to follow these story threads.
Anyway can’t wait for Season 5. The writers are planning a new story telling device (different from flash forwards), so that will be really interesting. I hope they can get in all the episodes this season, and not be effected be a pending actors strike. Stay tuned to the All About Lost podcast for news about that. And feel free to leave any comments about your favorite parts of Season 4 and/or if you have an answer to any of the questions I posed.
