This week’s episode of “Lost” was entitled “The Last Recruit” and it centered on the merging of both Jack and Pseudo-Locke’s camps. Magic happened last night when two major events took place after months and months of waiting. Jack finally met up with his sister Claire after assuming she was dead and Jin and Sun found each other after being apart for years. Also, everybody tried to make a run for it by going to Widmore’s island but as you can tell from the above photo that didn’t work out so well…

Title of this Week’s Episode: “The Last Recruit” Season 6: Episode 13
Alliances were forged and broken as Pseudo-Locke and Jack’s camps merged. Sawyer had a top secret plan to grab his friends and use Charles Widmore’s sub to get off the island. Unfortunately, Jack didn’t want to play ball and decided to (literally) jump ship because he had a bad feeling about leaving. Pseudo-Locke ordered Sayid to kill Desmond, while Widmore’s henchmen threatened to kill everyone in the camp if their “package” wasn’t returned safely.
- Jack/Claire: Finally, the brother and sister reconnected and had a short but strange reunion. It was great to see them interact with each other as siblings instead of castaways, unfortunately their happy reunion was cut short when Jack realized she was insane and decided to keep his distance.
- Sawyer: As usual Sawyer brought the comedy last night with his witty dialogue. This time his victim of choice wasn’t the typical Hurley it was Frank. During the entire episode he kept referring to him as “Pilot,” “Pilot Guy,” “Chesty”, and at one point “the guy who looks like someone out of a Burt Reynolds’ movie. Classic.
- Sun/Jin Reunion: Another pair that finally met up after years apart were husband and wife Jin and Sun. When they locked eyes while approaching Charles’ island you couldn’t help but tear up, especially when Sun spoke for the first time in days.
- Desmond in the Well: Poor Desmond was still in the well awaiting his fate after Pseudo-Locke sent Sayid to kill him. After they met up, we don’t know if Sayid actually pulled the trigger because it was never shown. I’m going to take a wild guess and say he’s still alive. In the world of “Lost,” if I didn’t see it, it didn’t happen.
- Sayid: What the hell is his point anymore? Seeing him walk around like a zombie is really starting to get annoying. In the words of Sawyer, he’s gone over to the dark side but instead of still have somewhat of a personality, he’s become bland and one note. He’s not interesting to watch at all.
“The Last Recruit” was one of the more entertaining episode’s that we’ve had this season. The flash sideaways were kept to a minimum and the majority of the action took place in real time on the island. With only 4 episodes to go, they’re really starting to wrap things up. Next week’s “The Candidate” sounds like the beginning of the end and I think we’re all ready for it.
