Last night’s episode of “Lost” entitled, “The Package” centered on Jin and Sun Kwon, but it also managed to rope in Sayid’s alternate storyline from a few episodes back, which was an interesting twist. Once again the island crossed lovers huffed and puffed through an entire 60 minutes because they are still unable to find each other. They’re in different camps, with different leaders, and they have different ideas as to what they want to do when it comes to the island. Out of everybody on the show I think they’re the most lost…

Title of this Week’s Episode: “The Package” Season 6: Episode 10
Sun and Jin desperately continue their search for one another and are approached by two men from opposing sides. We also see an alternate timeline that consists of the yet to be married pair being held captive by a familiar face leading to a crossover with another main character.
- Paik vs Kwon: In the beginning of the episode, I found it interesting how they emphasized Sun’s maiden name Paik when she was checking into the hotel. Just a scene or two prior there was a conversation about how “Kwon” was on the list of candidates but neither Jin nor Sun were specified. Maybe it’s Jin, since by blood Sun’s a Paik?
- The Comedic Moments: There were a lot of hilarious lines being tossed around during this episode and they came from the usual suspects. Sawyer asking Pseudo-Locke why he couldn’t turn into smoke and fly his ass over to the other island was classic. Also, Miles’ reaction to Sun being able to understand English but only speak in Korean was priceless. He asked, “Are we supposed to buy that? And Frank replied, “Asks the man who communes with the dead.” But the biggest laugh came from guest star Kevin Durand’s Martin Keamy, when he slammed Sun and Jin’s Korean conversation because it made him feel like he was in a Godzilla movie (which is Japanese by the way).
- Desmond’s Return: It’s great to see Henry Ian Cusick back as Desmond but what does he have to offer Widmore and why is he considered a special “package?” Where’s Penny?!
- Pseudo-Locke’s Camp: All the scenes featuring Pseudo-Locke, Kate, Sayid, and Claire led to nothing. We only learned that Kate is being used to get 3 other candidates off the island and after that she becomes a liability. Other than that piece of predictable information, we saw everyone get attacked with darts and Sawyer and Kate sulk in the shadows. How exciting…not.
- Sayid: This guy is really creeping me out. We understand that he’s turned evil from the inside out, but he’s literally a shell of his former self. He’s barely watchable because he’s written like a space case. Did you see how he stared at Desmond when he saw him in the water? Cusick definitely did all the reacting in that scene because Naveen Andrews no longer needs to show emotion with his character, which is sad.
There were huge portions of this episode that I didn’t care for and could have done without. Besides the little revelation about the difference between who was really a Kwon and who was a Paik, there weren’t any major clues given. Jin and Sun are now even further away from each other than before because he’s on an entirely new island with Mr. Widmore. They’re still apart and so are Jack and Claire. I need families reunited on this show stat!
