‘Lost’ Review: Season 5 Premiere

[IMG:L]Oh man, how do I do this without giving too much away?

Suffice to say, Lost has not lost its touch — the first episode packs a wallop. Whatever Ben did before he was so rudely booted off the island has pushed the island go into some sort of time-space pinwheel, in which it continually jumps around in time.

Good times should be had by those still remaining in island hell, including Sawyer, Juliet, Locke — and Daniel Faraday, leader of the remaining freighter people. Daniel apparently knows plenty about what’s happening, but, much to Sawyer’s chagrin, can’t really stop it.

Back on Planet Earth, Ben and Jack have to convince the rest of the gang to go back to the island, dragging Locke’s seemingly dead corpse along with them. Before Locke died, he must have known what was happening to the island because his proclamations that all on the island will die if Jack doesn’t make it back is enough to get a disheveled Jack on board (and does he shave the beard? You’ll have to watch).

It’s not going to be easy, though. Hurley and Sayid are now on the run, as is Kate and Aaron (reasons left to be discovered), while Sun gets in cahoots with Widmore to bring down Ben. Oh, Sun, you have no idea what you are doing, do you?

My main question after watching this first episode — well, I have more than a few, which is why I love the show so much — is how in hell are those on the mainland going to find the damn island if it keeps moving around in time? Seriously, they’ve hooked me once again.
