‘Lost’ Season Two Recap: Ep. 5

“…And Found”

Sun is devastated when she notices that she’s lost her wedding ring. She and some of the other survivors search the camp, but when they can’t find it, Sun ends up in tears, ripping apart her garden, until we realize that it’s clearly not about the ring anymore–it’s about the fact that she believes she has lost Jin. Locke tells her that in order to find something, sometimes you have to stop looking.

In a flashback, we learn that Sun’s parents have set her up with a matchmaker to find an appropriate husband–and it’s not Jin. He’s on a very different path, trying to make his way out of his station in life as that of a lowly fisherman’s son. But after a series of near misses, in which their paths continue to cross, fate eventually brings them together–just as fate leads Sun to find her wedding ring, buried with the message bottle. And as she slips it on her finger, she registers a renewed hope that she and Jin will someday find each other again.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the island, Jin is anxious to get back to his wife. The Tailies decide that they’ll trek across the island to rejoin the survivors. In preparation, they separate to gather food. But Michael is not leaving without Walt. He knows his son is nearby with the “Others” and so takes off into the jungle. Ana Lucia steps in and orders the group to move out immediately–before Michael gets caught and tells “them” where they are.

Jin wants to go after Michael, while Sawyer tries to stop him. Jin is insistent, however, to the point where he comes to blows with Mr. Eko, who changes his mind once he sees Jin’s determination and loyalty, even offering to help him find Michael. Ana Lucia refuses to wait for them and moves out with the rest of the group, with an ailing Sawyer in tow. The infection, which is now obviously taking hold, is slowing him down.

As Jin and Eko tracked down Michael, the two bond a bit. They come across the body of a fellow Tailie whom Eko says was killed by the Others. And at the mention of their name, they seem to come out of nowhere. Eko and Jin hide behind some bushes as the Others march by silently in a line–the last a child, dragging a teddy bear. Is it Walt?

When Jin and Eko finally find Michael, he refuses to return without his son. Jin tries to convince him by reassuring him that he and Walt will be together again soon. Michael reluctantly agrees and they head out to catch up with the group, and hopefully, reunite with their loved ones.
