Episode 4x13-14 -- Shine On You Crazy Island

INTRO: Coming Back to Life

I know, I know, this an exceptionally late recap. I sincerely apologize for the delay and really appreciate everyone’s patience. After the finale aired, I was so excited I immediately started my writing and prepared to churn out one heck of an Essay for you all. Well, as if I too had now somehow lost favor with the Island, I suffered a sudden flare-up of sciatica, a VERY painful condition in the lower back. I am starting to think the Island has something against the lumbar spine. To make matters worse, 48 hours after my initial doctor’s visit, I fell victim to some type of sickness that ravaged every system of my body for more than 2 weeks. This dual-combo of body torture, Island-style, made things just a tad difficult for someone with Work to Do. Where is Taller Ghost Walt when you need him?

This is an exceptionally long recap as well. Seriously. I have tried to keep it as brief as possible but it is difficult not to have something to say about every part of the episode. I promise my next installment will be shorter, as I plan to do a focused, in-depth exploration of some of the Island’s mysteries up until season four.

Right now I am still not 100% back to my old self yet, but as the saying goes...

The Show Must Go On

It would seem that the Wheel has made another revolution, as we begin where we ended in the season 3 finale. What great mirroring once again; Kate drives off at the end of “Through the Looking Glass”, and then screeches to a halt and throws her car into reverse at the start of our season 4 finale. Evangeline Lilly’s acting was really spot on in this scene. When Kate tells Jack off in so many words, a lot of people thought it was one of Kate’s best “you go girl” moments.

However, I have sympathy for both of these characters now that we have seen the events that led up to this moment. Sure, Kate was burned by Jack to the point where she seems to despise him now, but Jack has not been taking being haunted by the Island very well either. I’ll let all the shippers out there debate the more intricate details of this scene as it pertains to their coupling. My main focus was Jeremy “John Locke” Bentham, who is confirmed as the mysterious man mentioned in the obituary that had Jack ready to take his own extended stay at the Coffin Motel. Locke had apparently visited both of our O6’ers, and as we slowly discover, it won’t be the last time his alias is mentioned, either.
