The episode starts with a flashback of Sawyer remembering how his father killed Sawyer’s mother before committing suicide.

LOST Rewatch: Hearts and Minds

This episode starts with a close-up of an eye – this time Boone’s. Boone is unhappy with the relationship that is developing between Sayid and Shannon. This episode focuses on the hatch – which seems impossible to open. Locke says that Michelangelo’s father had failed to recognize the divinity in his son. Michelangelo stared at [Read More...]

LOST Rewatch: Homecoming

Claire returns but doesn’t remember anything after getting on the plane. Ethan finds Charlie and threatens to kill one person every night until he brings Claire to him. And so they set traps and post sentries. But someone named Scott Jackson is killed, even so. In flashbacks, Charlie copes with the apparent death of Driveshaft [Read More...]

LOST Rewatch: Special

This episode starts with another eye close-up, as Michael is looking for Walt. Walt is learning to throw a knife from John Locke – and after missing frequently, when asked to picture it in his mind’s eye first, the knife is right on target. I’m pretty sure this is supposed to remind viewers of Star [Read More...]

In this episode, Sawyer makes reference to Jack trying to “buy his way into heaven” by trying to patch Sawyer up, after the attempt to torture information out of him had resulted in a knife fight in which he was injured badly.

LOST Rewatch: Confidence Man

I have loved this episode since the first time I saw it. It takes a character like Sawyer who has been trying hard to be unlikable, and digs into his background. When Sawyer sees the kid who reminds him of himself, he walks away from a deal. The letter is a wonderful touch, as it [Read More...]

LOST Rewatch: House of the Rising Sun

This episode starts with an eye – Sun’s. We begin to learn about the backstory of Sun and Jin. And we have the revelation that Sun learned English and almost left Jin right before their flight.

The episode begins with the iconic eye, but it is Jack’s eye in a flashback.

LOST Rewatch: Walkabout

This episode began poignantly with a close-up of John Locke’s eye, mirroring the start of the pilot, and hinting at the comparisons and contrasts between the two Johns that would characterize much of the series.
