Through the Looking Glass

There's a lot to like about the Season Finale that "wraps" up Season 3. It had a lot of "what the f*ck" moments that had me scratching my head the first time it aired on TV and it still delivers on DVD. Straight up, I have said before and I will say it again now, this episode has the single greatest 'twist / cliffhanger' that has ever been filmed. You will not find a better payoff on any other TV series, Movies or book. The entire episodes "flashback" has Jack at the end of his rope, looking to end it any way he can.

Now, if you are familiar with Lost, you know that half the episodes are anchored by flashbacks to tell half the story. In this one we are led to believe the same. They even throw in the name Christian Sheppard just in case anyone was getting suspecious of this particular flashback. I never caught on the first time around and when it's revealed at the end with the emergence of Kate meeting him at the airport, we came to realize that they, along with everyone else finally made it off the Island. But when we finally see why Jack is at the end of his rope, that he is actively trying to get back to the Island, it just left me....speechless. Greatest Twist ever!

The rest of the episode had a lot going for it as well. You have the confrontation with the 'Others' back at the camp, it has an awesome rescue moment for Hurley, it has Sawyer going 'Dirty Harry' on 'Nice Guy' Tom, it has a major beat down by Jack on Ben's face and then the topper of them all, it has Locke knifing down Naomi and threatening to kill Jack. Akso cool was the cameo by Walt at the pit to give Locke his pep talk and the reunion between Danielle and Alex.

Not to be outdone, Charlie goes out a winner and they did it in grand fashion, also leaving us with another cliffhanger: "Not Penny's Boat".

How Epic is this episode? I think it is / was their crown jewel for the entire series. It was their Mount Everest.
