Lost Throws Another Desmond Twist

Lost Season 4 PosterWill it ever end? Just when you thought those crazy writers have completely divulged Desmond Hume’s (Henry Ian Cusick) storyline, they just throw a sick, twisted wrench at you. Damn them.

This week, gave us a Sayid (Naveen Andrews) and Desmond update.  They left us hanging for a few episodes, having last seen them board a helicopter bound for freedom. That helicopter managed to escape a storm on the trip back to the boat.  Unfortunately, due to a slight change in bearing and the mass amount of radiation he was exposed to, Desmond’s consciousness reverted back to 1996 when he was in the military, shortly after leaving Penny. Thankfully for all of us on the edge of our couches, Faraday and Penny were able to save our Scottish friend from a brain aneurysm.

Not many secrets were revealed this episode, other than Faraday alluding to the fact that there is either a time difference or other strange occurrence happening on the island.  (Which of course, has already become crystal clear.)  The cliffhanger this episode was confusing, although it provided reason for Faraday’s decision to join the mysterious “rescue” team.

I want to see more flash forwards, J.J.!
