Last night after nine months of waiting, we finally got to sit down and watch “Lost‘s” 6th and final season premiere entitled, “LA X.” The episode was broken up into two parts, giving us a two hour event and we loved every minute of it. We finally found out what happened when the bomb went off at the end of last season and the results were devastating. After all the waiting only two of my many questions were answered and they were regarding Locke’s true identity and Juliet’s fate.

The Players:

  • Director: Jack Bender (Part 1), Paul A. Edwards (Part 2)
  • Writers/Creators: Jeffrey Lieber, Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse (Part 1), JJ Abrams
  • Cast: Naveen Andrews, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, Josh Holloway, Jorge Garcia, Terry O’ Quinn, Nestor Carbonell, Michael Emerson, Daniel Dae Kim, Yunjin Kim, Ken Leung, Elizabeth Mitchell, Jeff Fahey

The Shows Plot:

“Lost” centers on the survivors of the ill fated Oceanic Flight 815 who crashed on a mysterious island. They fight the elements, the island’s mysteries, and each other while trying to survive in uncharted territory.

Title of this Week’s Episode: “LA X: Part 1 and 2” Season 6: Episode 1

The aftermath from Juliet’s detonation of the hydrogen bomb is revealed, which has spread the castaways across the island. Sawyer deals with Juliet’s fate, while Jack takes the blame for all the events that took place. Sayid’s life hangs in the balance, and “Locke’s” true identity is revealed.

The Good:

  • Juliet/Sawyer: The romance between these two blossomed overnight, but their relationship still came across as real. In the final scenes before Juliet’s death, you couldn’t help but get emotional. You can tell Sawyer really loved her, Kate who?
  • Jack/Sawyer Feud: At the end of last season it seemed like Jack and Sawyer’s dislike for each other mutated into a general respect, but now they’re back to being blood enemies. Sawyer blames Jack for everything that’s happened thus far and he wants him to pay. It’s just like the good old days!
  • Cameo City: In part one of the episode we saw Boone, Charlie, and Desmond all make appearances as passengers on the flight to LA. It was good to see the old cast again, especially Ian Somerhalder’s Boone. “The Vampire Diaries” don’t deserves those sparkling blue eyes.
  • Reintroduction of Characters: After such a long hiatus, everyone’s first scenes seemed to be monumental. Claire appeared out of nowhere in a taxi cab, Kate was randomly hanging in a tree, and Sawyer burst onto the screen by kicking Jack in the face. That’s how you make a first impression.
  • NBC Heroes Connection: Did anyone notice Greg Grunberg’s return as the pilot in the first episode, or the cab driver who Kate hijacked was played by David H. Lawrence who stars as the Puppet Master guy on “Heroes“? Grunberg is expected, but puppet guy through me for a loop.

The Bad:

  • Questions, Questions, Questions: There are so many new questions regarding this season that I don’t even know where to begin, but then again this is “Lost.”


In typical “Lost” fashion this episode was filled with surprises and a lot of tension filled moments. It looks like this season’s going to deal with more timelines and good versus evil will finally go head to head. Are you ready for it?

Rating: 9.5/10
