LOST is Found Again in the Season 4 Premiere

LOST Season Premiere

For those of you who have been anxiously awaiting the season four premiere of LOST, let me tell you this…you will NOT be disappointed. I just finished watching the first two episodes of the new season and to say they rocked feels like a bit of an understatement – like it’s just not doing the episodes justice. Last May’s brilliant season three finale reinvented LOST and I’m happy to say that the season four premiere picks up where it left off, telling the stories of the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 and the “friends” they’ve met along the way, through flashbacks and flash forwards, each revealing one more piece to the giant puzzle that is LOST.

Claire, LOSTThere wasn’t one wasted moment in the first two hours of the new season. The momentum that marked the end of last season (“We Have to go Back!”) hasn’t faltered and the audience is put in another tailspin of action and adventure, the likes of which we haven’t seen in quite some time. The frenetic and enigmatic storytelling that redefined television during the show’s first season is back, and new and old fans alike will be swept away by the tales being told.

Any LOST fan can tell you that you really can’t trust anything you see, and such is the case with the events that transpire in these first two episodes. The writers are careful not to tell us anything too specific as they count on us, the viewers at home, to formulate our own theories to be debated on blogs, message boards, podcasts and the like. This storytelling device ensures that LOST is more than just another hour long show on TV – it’s a living and breathing entity getting its sustenance from the very audience it feeds. It’s this back and forth game that has captivated audience over the past three seasons.

Sawyer, LOSTThose of you hoping that these first few episodes will serve to answer your every question about life on and off the island will be disappointed. While there are more than a few important revelations, the first two episodes leave us with more questions than answers. But these new questions add yet another intriguing layer to the story. And with so many questions still left unanswered, what’s a few more to add to your list? With the series finale date marked on the calendar of the show’s creators Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse, it’s almost better to stop worrying about the destination and enjoy the journey while we still can.

Out of fear that someone from ABC will drag me away and lock me in a Dharma constructed hatch for the rest of my natural life, I’m not going to be giving away any big spoilers. Actually, according to the “rules” I can’t say much of anything about anything. But I can vaguely tease….

If you would rather not know ANYTHING about the season four premiere of LOST then you might want to stop reading right about….NOW!

Jack, LOSTFor those of you who just can’t wait, here are a few teasers about the first two episodes of LOST to get you stocked up for Thursday.

  • We learn that at least one other person leaves the island with Jack and Kate. This person is the main focus of the first episode of season 4 and through his or her flashbacks, we get a glimpse of what happened on the island in the moments after Jack called out to Naomi’s friends on the rescue team.
  • Tears will be shed (unless you have a cold, cold heart).
  • Sawyer and Jack are still hot as hell.
  • Longing glances and hugs are shared. But between whom?
  • Someone who makes it off the island finds himself or herself back in very familiar territory.
  • Speaking of familiar, don’t be surprised to see perhaps some familiar faces and/or connections to those we wouldn’t expect to see or hear about in the season premiere.
  • Animals play an important role in the second episode – how are they important? Damned if I know.
  • Claire still has perfect makeup and has clothes that fit her perfectly, despite the fact that she was wearing maternity clothes when the flight crashed. Perhaps one of the biggest mysteries of the island.

Excited yet? You should be. Make sure you set your TiVo’s for all of the events leading up to the season premiere on Thursday:

    I’m gonna miss Charlie and the Charlie/Claire relationship.:(

    I have a cold, cold heart. I bet I won’t cry.

    Of course, the downside of you seeing the first two eps is that you have to wait more than two weeks until you get to see the next one.
    I’m really eager to see it though. I had been of the mind that ABC should hold off on airing eps until the strike ends and the season is finished, but now I can hardly wait until Thursday. Although part of that is because of the strike: since there’s nothing else I want to watch this week until Thursday.
    Speaking of nothing much being on: does anyone know why NBC changed their minds about airing remaining Scrubs eps (which were at one time supposed to be begun last week), or when they will finally air them?

    I have a heart of stone. That said, I always just assumed that Claire’s perfectly-fitting (and super cute) clothes were ‘donated’ by someone who didn’t survive the plane crash . . .
    Woot! Hooray for Lost!

    Will the rule that you have to be incredibly hot to be allowed on the island be broken this season? Yeah, there’s at least one exception to this rule, but honestly, is part of the reason why no one from the outside world can find the island because there’s some kind of hottness rule? Is the island completely invisible to any boat/plane/raft carrying ugly people?

    woo hoo, kath! can’t wait!!!

    GMMR – it works out so well that you love so many of the shows I do. I can’t wait until tomorrow. As for Claire, I’d think she probably can wear all of Shannon’s old clothes, hahahaha. Or Libby’s. But what usually bothers me more is Kate’s ability to wear white so often and it’s so CLEAN. There must be some Dharma Bleach…or at least there was before the washer/dryer blew up.

    […] Of course I kid, and I’m really excited that you all get to see the premiere tonight. It’s fantastic…as is next week’s episode, which is perhaps even better than tonight’s. If you haven’t read my vaguely non-spoilerish thoughts on tonight’s premiere then by all means, read on…LOST is Found Again in the Season 4 Premiere. […]
