We’d really like it if Lost were good tonight.
I mean, every good episode of Lost kind of seems like its own little coup de grace, considering the alternative (read: last week’s ep, “The Other Woman” or that Kate-centric ep a few weeks back where the only mildly interesting moment was one we’d guessed about fifteen minutes into the episode, the “Hi, Aaron” ending).
So why is tonight any different than the other weeks that fans sat down patiently, hoping for the best?
Glad you asked. Tonight marks a black man’s return. That’s right, fam. Michael (Harold Perrineau) is back! After a good four or five episodes with Harold’s name flashing across the opening credits with no payoff (not even a voice on the sat-com. We know Michael’s voice when we hear it.), dude is finally deigning to show his face.
Question is: How long before he gets killed?
C’mon, y’all. He’s crossed over to the dark side. And he’s dark. Something tells us the writers won’t be able to resist.
