The Lost Rewatch: 1x24 "Exodus, Part 2"

And here comes the end of season one. It's a two hour epic, and that's why it took me just a little bit longer to get it done than it would normally. Regardless, let's get started. In "Exodus, Part 2," with the dynamite retrieved, the team faces the task of bringing the volatile substance back across the Island to the Hatch. Meanwhile, Charlie and Sayid set off to rescue Aaron after Danielle kidnaps the child from Claire.

  • Hurley tells Arzt that "it's all in [his] head." Hurley will soon be thinking that it's all in his own head after receiving a visit from his imaginary friend Dave.
  • Locke mentions his love of games. This is a theme that's never been fully explored. Perhaps the entire games motif is actually a reference to Jacob and his nemesis, who are playing games with the survivors?
  • We see the Hurleybird, a giant flying creature that appears to call out Hurley's name. It's really creepy, but we don't know where it's from or why it's calling Hurley's name.
  • Locke stands still thinking that the monster won't attack him, but from the fear in his eyes when he actually see the monster, we can tell that this black smoke is not what he saw in "Walkabout."
  • The monster tries to drag Locke into a hole -- does this hole lead to the tunnels under the Temple wall? Was it trying to possess him like it did Montand and the others? And, if the monster is Mr. X like I think he is, is he trying to possess Locke now instead of waiting until he's dead?
  • Locke almost being pulled into the hole is reminiscent of the scene in "The Incident" with Juliet being dragged down the hole. Juliet pleads with Sawyer to let her go, like Locke does with Jack. The difference is, Jack doesn't let go.
  • Jin gives Michael a watch, which he'll later pawn off in order to get a gun that he can't even use to kill himself.
  • It appears that fate is trying to keep Hurley from boarding the plane, as opposed to fate making it possible for the other passengers to board. Does the Island not want Hurley?
  • Locke tells Jack that he believes in destiny, he just doesn't know it yet. And how true this the end of season five, Jack is spouting out that he's working as an agent of destiny.
  • Danielle says that she heard the Others coming for the boy. And strangely enough, she was right. This means that the whispers are caused by the Others, but how, if most of the Others are at the barracks or Hydra Island?
  • And then we meet Tom, the Other who leads the mission of taking Walt off the raft. Sawyer will later shoot him for this, killing him.
  • And then the hatch is's a long ladder, leading down into something that the audience can't see. But we all know what's down there now: a bunch of '70s electronics and an angry bloody Scotsman.
And that does it for "Exodus, Part 2." Look for the blog for the next episode, "Man of Science, Man of Faith," soon. You can discuss this episode in this forum thread, read others' posts about it at the rewatch hub, and edit the episode's article.
