Yay! Lost is back!

Undoubtedly filmed in Death Valley

Some thoughts:

– Holy motherfuck, they totally shot Alex dead
– Ben waking up in the desert was one of the coolest scenes in the show’s history
– Ben opening up a can of whoopass on the two Bedouin, both of whom could probably take a shit that would weigh more than him, was also way cool
– Generally speaking, Ben is a great character and Michael Emerson is a great actor, this show would be nowhere near as good as it is without him
– It was nice to see some background extras in Locketonia; shame they got brutally gunned down seconds later
– I demand to know whether Danielle and Carl are dead or not
– The dramatic music leading up to Daniel admitting the freighters weren’t there to rescue them was hilarious, because WE ALREADY KNEW THAT DIPSHITS
– Widmore puzzlingly had an Australian accent in the final scene (which was also way awesome)
– Are the freighters lying about Ray? Or does the time difference mean that on the ship, he really is fine?

Overall this was a pretty solid return that advanced the story more than the usual episode. I’m as happy as a clam.
