About Down the Hatch … LOST: Down the Hatch is a full-tilt spoiler-filled rewatch of LOST. Bloody Good, "Monday, October 02, 2006 ABC Television Network Press Release – Entertainment – LOST (10/18)", "Ratings: Lost almost dethroned, NBC skids", https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Further_Instructions&oldid=997879510, Articles with dead external links from June 2018, Pages containing links to subscription-only content, Television episode articles with short description for single episodes, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 2 January 2021, at 18:03. [9] Nikki and Paulo's original introduction onto the show was deleted for time from the final cut of the episode. Every week, Josh and Mike break down an episode of LOST with the benefit of knowing the series’ full trajectory, using the following structure as a guide: In “Through the Looking Glass,” Jack Shephard puts it all on the line to save the survivors of Oceanic 815. So in the end the numbers had to do with fate, and were a nice little numerology motif for the showrunners to play with (and a mathematical mystery for fans to agonize over). And if he did does this mean that the other people in the hatch have powers after the implosion. [4] Somerhalder, a former series regular, was credited as a guest actor to play his character Boone Carlyle in Locke's hallucinations,[3] as his character died during the first season. Lost: Down the Hatch | Season 3 Finale: “Through the Looking Glass” Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) had to go back, and now, here they are: “Through the Looking Glass,” the legendary season three finale of LOST. Razzle dazzle! That all sounds deep, sure, but I'm sure off-screen conflicts with the actors and the fact that Macolm David Kelley (the kid who played Walt) hit puberty were also major factors. is pretty ghastly when you think about it. They meet "the others". Such is what afflicted "Further Instructions." Emilie de Ravin, who plays Belle on Once Upon a Time, is also well-known for playing Claire on Lost, which is about a mysterious island where "magical" things happen.While in the hospital Bell is watching Expose on television, a fictional show that was featured in Lost. Eko appears to briefly awaken and tells Locke that he must rescue Jack, Kate and Sawyer. For much of season 6, many fans assumed (based on the opening to the season six premiere, "LA  X") that the bomb that Jack and Co. detonated in the 70s (the season 5 finale) resulted in the Island sinking and an alternate timeline being created, in which Oceanic 815 never crashed, and things were slightly different in the lives of the passengers. Lost left plenty of questions unanswered following its series finale in 2010, but an epilogue, "The New Man in Charge," picked up some of the slack. Prior to the third season, the producers of the show were often asked what the rest of the plane-crash survivors were doing because the show only focused on approximately fifteen of the survivors, and the characters of Nikki and Paulo were created in response. Whether it was exhausted by the bomb Juliet set off, or the the moment in season 3 when Locke lost his faith and refused to push the button ("Live Together, Die Alone") the energy was released, and The Swan was destroyed. This is the embodiment of "good" we're supposed to root for? Mass murder is never a good thing, so the fact that Jacob at least allowed the mass murder of the Dharma Initiative (it's his role as "protector," right?) I'm quite happy with "the island" type interventions when it's reasonable, for example Locke's fall, as it wasn't out of the realms of possibility the he could actually survive it. Maybe the implosion opened a portal into another dimension, and the energy just kept draining off into there, from that point on. These are just some of the lingering question Lost has left us with. We can assume it didn’t move through time because the number of days on and off the island since the crash were the same for the Oceanic 6. When told by the ghost of his brother Yemi to "Confess his sins," Eko refused, saying that he had no guilt to confess; in his life, he did what he had to do to survive. However, it is never said that Ben "controls" the smoke monster - the best word would be "summons." "Further Instructions" is the third episode of the third season of the American science fiction television series Lost. If you're asking this question, you weren't really paying attention to the show. An estimated 16.31 million Americans watched the episode upon its original broadcast. Still, many fans wondered why Walt, Michael and the "tailie" priest, Mr. Eko, didn't reunite with the other cast members at the purgatory all-faith church in the finale. As for the relevance of the statue to the Lost mythos: to me was evidence that the Island had been around for a long, long, time, and that people had been coming to it throughout history. [7], Kiele Sanchez and Rodrigo Santoro make their first appearances as Nikki and Paulo in this episode. I'll give you a hint: Dharma Initiative experiments. Yeah, I vaguely do too. However, Hurley responds, "What speech? Upon exiting the sweat lodge he sees a flash of a polar bear. Still, the series finale left audiences absolutely baffled.

[18] In the 18-49 demographic, Lost received a 6.5/16 ratings share, helping ABC place first for the night when compared to the other major networks. I’ve always assumed the energy in the hatch, and the energy at the MIB’s wheel were from the same source. Locke and Charlie track Eko, who Locke believes has been captured by a polar bear. After the hatch imploded, every thing lookes to be burnt to a crisp, but our belevoded characters are o.k. They pause at a large pit in the ground where the hatch imploded.

[13] The DVD also contained another deleted scene of Locke returning to the commune and seeing Mike and Jan getting arrested.[14]. This episode sits at just 8.1, making it one of the lowest-rated episodes of the entire show, let alone the lowest-rated Locke-centric episode. The procedure to reset the countdown timer was first described by Dr. Marvin Candle in the Swan Orientation Film. I'm not trying to look much deeper than that.

[11] They were instead introduced at the end of the episode when Locke makes a speech. This is one Lost mystery I don't really need answered. [3][15] The Bible verses seen on Mr. Eko's stick include Romans 6:12, which says "Do not obey the lusts of sin" and John 3:5, which says "Jesus answered, 'I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit'.

Some people are convinced the final image during the end credits of the Lost finale was the "clue" to the characters being dead the whole time.

The episode was written by showrunner Carlton Cuse and supervising producer Elizabeth Sarnoff and was directed by Stephen Williams. As described by Dr. Candle, the protocol was established after the incident - although he did not reveal exactly what happened. Is it justme or did Desmond read the future. A one-stop shop for all things video games. He is mute a… If so this season only has better things to come. Locke (mutely) apologizes for the day Boone died, and he accepts the apology, however, in a taunting and seemingly sarcastic manner. The numbers also showed up again and again throughout the show (Danielle's papers, on medicine Claire and Desmond take, on Mr. Eko's stick, etc...). The survivors of a plane crash are forced to work together in order to survive on a seemingly deserted tropical island. One friend of mine (and I'm sure of yours) watched the finale chanting "They better bring back Walt!" Locke takes a hallucinogenic drug and enters the lodge in order to "speak with the Island". Yea I heard they are wonderful conversationalists", a reference to Monaghan's work in The Lord of the Rings, in which he talks to trees. He struggles to his feet and looks up and is nearly hit on the head by Eko's stick falling from a tree. This is one Lost mystery I don't really need answered.

As an explanation, Locke announces to the survivors that he plans to rescue Jack, Kate, and Sawyer, as Desmond indicated to Hurley earlier. So if Richard instructed Ben to kill the Dharma members, doesn't that imply that Jacob instructed Richard to do so, much the same way Jacob's "mother" slaughtered the men on the Island when the Man In Black got to close to them? "[15] The Record gave a negative review, noting that "Unfortunately, 'Instructions' seemed devoid of everything that made 'The Glass Ballerina' hum. In the season six episode "The Substitute" Un-Locke takes Sawyer down to "Jacob's cave" on the cliff (where Jack ultimately killed MIB) and in that cave, Sawyer observes that Jacob's list of "candidates" for his replacement - our Losties - have numbers by their names. "Live Together, Die Alone" is the second season finale of the ABC television series Lost, consisting of the 23rd and 24th episodes of the second season.

John Locke wakes up in the jungle and sees a naked Desmond Hume (Henry Ian Cusick) run by, but Locke cannot speak. "[20] Andrew Dignan of Slant Magazine expressed relief in having Locke "back to the way we fondly remember him--as a wide-eyed, knife-wielding, face-smeared madman", but disliked his flashbacks, calling them a "largely under-developed affair". Desmond seems confused, and drops the whole matter. Though a podcast downplayed the Others' knowledge of the Swan, later events prove they knew of it. Then it panned up to show that this person was living in the hatch … Looking back from the series finale and the "Across The Sea" episode about Jacob's past, I can't help but wonder: did Jacob murder the Dharma Initiative? "[16] In a 2008 review, Ryan McGee of Zap2It gave the episode another negative review and considered it the weakest of the season's first three episodes. 1.

[3] Dignan was also pleased to have Hurley back at the camp and referred to him as "someone [who] will keep the show grounded", but concluded his review by unhappily noting the sudden emergence of Nikki and Paulo as "a colossal misjudgment on the producers' part" and "a dangerous precedent that bears keeping an eye on. This makes sense to the story, as Alex's death is the event that makes Ben turn to the MIB for a favor - a favor which he later repays in season 5 by killing Jacob for the MIB.

I feel the writers overplayed their hand a bit there then. When Ben returned, he brought the smoke monster with him, which murdered the team of Widmore's assassins. The episode certainly offers its fair share of excitement, but as with any typical Lost episode we are presented with more questions than answers". ("Orientation") Kelvin later described the incident as a leak although he may not have been aware of the particulars of what happened in 1977. Instead what we got was a time travel scenario where that one location, the 70s Swan station, seemed to "overlap" on its present-day self, while leaving the rest of the time stream unaffected (or something like that). They blame Locke for bringing Eddie, whom they have discovered is an undercover police officer. . The crumbling building is part of a larger legacy that is coming to an end and, even as D-day for the implosion approached, the property was not without controversy.
