Lost: Season Five arrived a while back and though I’ve not been sufficiently diligent in order to finish up before this coming Tuesday, I’ll be re-watching the season in anticipation of the launch of the sixth and final year of the show. I didn’t spring for the Blu-ray (I don’t have a player) or the Special Season Five Dharma Initiative Orientation Kit box set, so I’m relying solely on standard DVD. I did hear that the Blu-Ray has excellent special features, notably the Lost University Feature.
I intend to continue with the LOST Recaps until I get through Season 5 and will then do a LOST Recap for each Season Six episode in due course so as to retain order. I will, however, be posting Quick Hits reaction to the episodes as they come.
Lostpedia is the consummate source for all Lost information, but sadly they lack any concise episode summary to help with this. Rather than attempting to summarize episode plots in great detail, I’m going to simply link to Lostpedia’s summary and give my base thoughts, this time on Episode 5-06, 316. For other LOST Recaps, visit the dedicated page here.
The Sixth Episode of the Fifth Season, “316” is easily mistaken for plot filler. Yes, it largely is a confluence of events that gets us to where we need to go and sets up a handful of new questions like:
- What the heck happened to Ben and are Penny and Dez OK?
- How is Jin now on Team Dharma?
- What and who got Hugo on the plane?
- Who is that with Sayid and why is he being deported to Guam?
All valid in their own right and a topic for another day. The basic premise of the storyline is advancing getting the Oceanic Six (minus Aaron) back on the Island. We start with a typical Damon and Cuse headfake, with Jack waking up in the jungle. Except this time Hurley screams aren’t drowned out by a plane. Jack rescues Hugo and Kate from a lagoon and the trio realizes they’re back on the Island.
