Doc Jensen: 'Lost' recap: Well, Well, Well

A Hurley-centric episode sends us into an existential crisis -- which is nothing compared to where it sends Desmond and Sideways Locke
By Jeff Jensen Apr 14, 2010
Chaos reigns. That's the tagline from the controversial film Anti-Christ, the feel-bad love story of the decade, and it can just as easily be applied to last night's Lost, which left me feeling disturbed despite being a charming feel-good love story about Sideways Hurley's $100,000 date with Libby, the loony bin Pretty Woman. Taking its cue from those ''highly unstable'' sticks of Black Rock dynamite, ''Everybody Loves Hugo'' was another sweet-and-funny installment in the larger Hurley subgenre, but punctuated with momentous WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!? shocks, twists, and narrative anarchy. Ilana blew up. The Black Rock got obliterated. SatanaLocke threw Island Desmond down a well while Sideways Desmond ran down Fake Locke with his car, leaving everyone's favorite clone world substitute teacher a bloody, convulsing bag of bones. Immediately after watching the episode, my colleague Adam B. Vary stumbled into my office, rattled by Sideway Desmond's apparent demonic turn and even more rolled by Sideways Locke's life-threatening peril. I share his shakes. Sideways Locke! Our last remaining vestige of the late and equally fate-screwed John Locke! Why does cosmos hate this man? What remains of our beloved man of faith? Sleeping Beauty Hurley may have gotten a magical kiss of awakening from Princess Charming Libby... but all we got was Kiss' ''All Hell's Breaking Loose.''
