“Lost”: Episode 10, “The Package”


A wise man once said that war was coming to this island. I think it just got here.

It’s not a what, it’s a who.

Widmore hears a who? I found this to be a very satisfying episode, more so that last week’s journey back in time with Richard Alpert. We got great flash-sideways developments for Jin and Sun that brought some clarity to the earlier Sayid flash-sideways narrative. And we saw some serious movement to the epic clash of the island titans that we’ve been promised for ever so long.

And Mikhail! He was probably the last minor player I expected to see back in the narrative, not that I’m complaining. Thesp Andrew Divoff is so wonderfully menancing.
“The Package” was very deftly written by Paul Zbyszewski and Graham Roland in a way that infused every word with importance, even if the significance of every word isn’t entirely clear just yet. Director Paul Edwards kept the camera moving so much we felt the sense of urgency surrounding our characters.
