Refreshing heavy format, strong installment, captivating and intense story
21 April 2010 | by igoatabaseSee all my reviews

If you're sometimes bored by the usual featured character episodes then you should definitely dig this installment. Indeed even if Lost's format allows the characters to grow on us I can't help missing some of them when they're not featured enough. But the stories are so captivating that it's more a pro than a con. However The Last Recruit proved that unifying all arcs wasn't a challenge the mind behind the show couldn't handle. From the direction to the writing it was one of the strongest episode. First as expected Jack and Black Locke's encounter was mesmerizing. Second Sawyer's plan developed further and it brought some tension to the story. Third many surprising events made it even more intense. I can't wait for an other Sundown, or Sunrise ! To sum things I really hope the upcoming episodes will have the same heavy format because I don't see the point of focusing on characters anymore. Making their arcs collide makes sense and should definitely lead to some dark sparkles and puzzling moments. Which side of the moon would you choose ?
