Lost Recap: 05×05 This Place is Death

This Place is Death, Episode 5 of season 5 of Lost aired on Feb 11th in the US and it was a VERY good episode full of fangirl goodness. Picking up where we left off with Jin and Rousseau and Sun and the O6ers….

normal_5x05-death-009

Sun gets the gun and is ready to go all vigilante on Ben’s ass…..(although I wished she would just kill Jack…)
normal_5x05-death-016

Sun is allΒ  like: you killed my husband you bastard, now you must pay!

normal_5x05-death-019

Meanwhile Sayid is thinking: ay, the drama, what am I doing here?

normal_5x05-death-034

Ben says: are you on drugs woman? Jin is alive. And I can prove it.

normal_5x05-death-037

Craphole island: Jin is all, OMG when am I ? wtf is going on? He asks Rousseau what is the year….

normal_5x05-death-045

and she says: ha? it’s 1988 dude. Or… how do you say dude in French?

normal_5x05-death-053

The French people are picking up a transmission so they know that there is a radio tower somewhere on the island. Jin says he will take them there. Pause for reflexion. Has Jin ever been to the radio tower? I can’t quite recall….me thinks NOT. BOO. Bad writers.

normal_5x05-death-082

Anyways, they are trekking in the Jungle of Mystery (TM Sawyer) , when they realise one of them is missing. and they hear a sound…

normal_5x05-death-084

ooooooooooo. Jin knows exactly what is coming….

normal_5x05-death-105

SMOKEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

normal_5x05-death-114

Who drags one of the French folks (the annoying one that was doing my head in, thanks TPTB!)

normal_5x05-death-125

and takes him to the Temple (oooo, is that Teh Temple, the one that the Others wanted to go to? wicked) , then the guy is trapped inside and well, sort of loses an arm. ew.

normal_5x05-death-139

But he is still alive down there, and he asks for help (but I ain’t fooled. That can be smokey acting like him, we have seen that before right? ) but…

normal_5x05-death-146

The French haven’t and they want to go and rescue him and Jin is like, NO Danielle , you DON’T GO!

normal_5x05-death-154

But them swoooosh time shifts and Jin is left alone

normal_5x05-death-158

with the arm. again, ew!

normal_5x05-death-166

He walks back to the beach…..and there is a music box playing. (Lost nerds will recognise this as the music box that Rousseau got Sayid to fix way back on season 1…but I digress)

normal_5x05-death-172

Then he sees two of the French people dead. And I am all like, jeez. You know what? This is rather cool. And so convenient. The writers found a way to tell Rousseau’s story even though she died last season. I guess they heard the enraged screams of the fandom!

normal_5x05-death-182

He walks into Rousseau and her husband. She is pointing a gun at him saying that the monster has made him sick (is that the sickness she says years later, has killed her expedition?) hummmm. anyways, she is about to lower her gun when her husband tries to kill her with his. But his gun won’t shoot and she ends up shooting him. Poor Rousseau.

normal_5x05-death-189

Then she notices Jin nearby and is all like, you disappeared! and starts shooting at him and he runs…

normal_5x05-death-194

and then swooosh

normal_5x05-death-197

and Jin runs into Sawyer! and he is like:

normal_5x05-death-200

Sawyer?

normal_5x05-death-202

And Sawyer is like : JIN!!!!!!!!!And I am like: awwwwww

normal_5x05-death-203

Awwwwww……

normal_5x05-death-204

Awwwww……seriously…..

normal_5x05-death-207

Even Juliet is like: awwwwwww….

normal_5x05-death-208

Another one: awwww, look at his smile.

Ok. that’s enough.

normal_5x05-death-214

So he goes: where is Sun? oh-oh.

normal_5x05-death-215

So they are all trying to explain what is going on…and Jin asks Charlotte to translate…

normal_5x05-death-219

and they learn she speaks Korean too. He tells Locke he doesn’t want Sun to come back to the island.

normal_5x05-death-2391

In LA *yawn* Ben tells Sun he only needs half an hour to convince her that Jin is alive.

normal_5x05-death-247

Meanwhile, Kate says she isΒ  done with them biatches.
normal_5x05-death-254

And Sayid tells Jack that if he ever sees him or Ben again: ” it will be extremely unpleasant for all of us” hihihihi, gotta love Sayid.

normal_5x05-death-259

So it’s only Ben, Jack and Sun now. Way to go Ben and Jack. You two rock.

normal_5x05-death-265

Craphole island: they are going to the Orchid and then…

normal_5x05-death-277

Swooosh

normal_5x05-death-279

and it’s night. then swooosh

normal_5x05-death-281

again and it’s day. It’s happening faster now and

normal_5x05-death-288

Charlotte collapses

normal_5x05-death-282

But it’s painful to everybody….

normal_5x05-death-291

and Juliet bleeds….

normal_5x05-death-293

AND DEAR LORD SO DOES SAWYER.

DEFCON 1 DEFCON 1 HAHAHAHAHAHAA<<<< HYSTERICAL LAUGHTER.

NO. NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

normal_5x05-death-298

Then Charlotte is all doom and gloom and…
normal_5x05-death-300

she looks at Jin and tells him to not let Sun come back cause….

normal_5x05-death-303

This Place is Death (nice, writers – *highfive*)

normal_5x05-death-309

Back in LA, the Fab Trio is in the car and Ben is driving. The Sun asks Jack if he will let Sun kill Ben if he can’t prove that Jin is alive…

normal_5x05-death-310

And Jack is all rambo-like, I will kill him myself after what he did to Kate. I snort. How many times has Jack promised to kill someone and he has never done it? Note that he is really close to tears. That’s how you know that he is really pissed off.

normal_5x05-death-311

Then Ben stops the car and is all like: “What I’m doing is helping you. And if you had any idea what I’ve had to do to keep you safe, to keep your friends safe, you’d never stop thanking me.” hum-hum. Yeah right.But then he says:Β  “You wanna shoot me? Then shoot me! But let’s get on with it” HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Jack does NOTHING of course. Well done Ben! I luurves you. You sneaky rat you.

normal_5x05-death-320

Craphole Island: things are not looking good.

normal_5x05-death-334

The swooshing keeps happening at short intervals. So they decide to carry on to the Orchid leaving Charlotte behind with Faraday. Before they leave she tells them:” look for the well.You’ll find it at the well” and we are all like: ooookaaaay.

normal_5x05-death-353

They find the Orchid but just right then….

normal_5x05-death-355

Swooooosh

normal_5x05-death-357

and the Orchid is gone!

normal_5x05-death-366

But guess what: hey, there is…a well! (How did Charlotte know???)

normal_5x05-death-370

Locke decides to go down….

normal_5x05-death-375

Back to Faraday and Charlotte , it’s time for the truth which tells me: it’s time for Charlotte to die. Really. What else could it be?
normal_5x05-death-379

So, she tells Faraday that she had been in the island before. That she grew up there. With the Dharma Initiative. That she left really young with her mom and her father stayed behind (hummmm) and her mother told her the place didn’t exist and she spent her whole life trying to find it.

normal_5x05-death-380

Why are you telling me (us) this?

normal_5x05-death-385

Because she remembered something. There was this man, a man she feared. That kept telling her that she should leave and never come back to the island because if she did she would die. and that man, that man was YOU DANIEL…

normal_5x05-death-386

Faraday: what?! Ana: WHAT?! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee *dies*

normal_5x05-death-387

Back at the well Locke is ready to go

normal_5x05-death-390

and he gives one of his awesome smiles.

normal_5x05-death-393

Then Jin makes him promise that he will never bring Sun back.

normal_5x05-death-399

Locke promises…

normal_5x05-death-400

because Jin can be REALLY scary sometimes….

normal_5x05-death-408

Then he gives his wedding ring to Locke so that Locke can tell Sun that he is dead. awww. poor Jin.

normal_5x05-death-418

Then Sawyer is all like, thanks.

normal_5x05-death-419

Locke is all like, see you when I come back, James.

normal_5x05-death-435

He starts to go down but OMG swoooosh

normal_5x05-death-438

JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

normal_5x05-death-444

And the well is gone.

normal_5x05-death-450

And Sawyer is all desperate trying to get to him. and I am like…oh baby, come to mama.

normal_5x05-death-470

oh yes, Charlotte dies.

normal_5x05-death-474

And Locke has a freaking bone coming out of his leg. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

normal_5x05-death-475

He is down there and he is alone calling for help and help comes and it’s:

normal_5x05-death-478

Christian Shephard!!!!!!!!! The Walking Dead<<<< (see what I did here? Making it relevant to the Zombie Appreciation Week. I am a genius) , Jack’s father! I am all ooooooooooo,eeeeeeeeeeeeeee, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. ay. He is there to tell Locke to keep going , that he needs to go to LA, get his friends to come back.

normal_5x05-death-484

Locke says that Richard told him that he would have to die.

normal_5x05-death-490

and Christian says, well I guess that’s why they call is a Sacrifice John. I get goosebumps.

normal_5x05-death-497

Then Locke, all by himself, walks to the Wheel of Time

normal_5x05-death-501

and Christian says: say hello to my son from me. and Locke is all like, but who is your son?
normal_5x05-death-505

But by then he is turning the wheel and he is gone!

normal_5x05-death-511

Back in LA, Ben brought Jack and Sun to a church…

normal_5x05-death-512

and the proof that Jin is alive is his wedding ring!! OMG did Locke give Jin’s wedding ring to BEN? NO, I can’t believe it. But now Sun is ready to go back to the island with them.

normal_5x05-death-524

Then, OMG Desmond shows up; You know what this means right? Because the person …..

normal_5x05-death-536

that Ben has taken them to see is……

normal_5x05-death-541

Mrs Hawking!

normal_5x05-death-543

Who, as Thea and I predicted, IS Faraday’s mother! *highfives Thea*

normal_5x05-death-552

And she is like: I thought I said all of them? And Ben is like : that’s all I could get on short notice. and she is like, I suppose that will have to do for now…

oooooooooooooooooooooooooo

LOST.
