Lost 4×12 There’s No Place Like Home: Part 1 episode review

The problem with telling a story backward is that even if like Lost Season 4 you haven’t given away the whole ending, you’ve given away enough that when you’re fleshing out the present day plot, it feels like Deja Vu all over again. Lost 4×12 There’s No Place Like Home: Part 1 finally gets us close to the actual rescue and shows the return of the Oceanic Six but where a season finale or its leadup is generally the part where the shocks and surprises are being delivered, Lost s4e12 There’s No Place Like Home Part 1 is low on surprises and high on rapidly spooling out plot.

It feels like we’ve already seen Lost 4×12 There’s No Place Like Home: Part 1 many times before and it’s not just because its basic elements like the losties splitting up in anticipation of an imminent threat, Jack going off on his own half-dead and Kate secretly following him have been done too many times. It’s because loosely speaking we all knew something like this was going to happen. We’ve already seen too many of the flash forwards and once the season tipped past the halfway mark, we’ve wound up rather short on surprises.

The biggest element of suspense has already been covered, we know who gets off the island. All that really remains is Kearney and with 3 men, it seems as if it should be simple enough for the Others or even the Losties to take them down. It’s a dead end for suspense and by the time Lost 4×12 There’s No Place Like Home: Part 1 closes for a two week hiatus, all we really know is that Locke is set to go inside the Orchid, yet another Dharma station to do neat things with the Casmir Effect and do something hopefully neat. Which is more than he or anyone else does in Lost 4×12 There’s No Place Like Home: Part 1.
