"Lost" is back and not a moment too soon! Welcome to the debut of "Lost" recaps at Megan's Minute. I've been anticipating the return of "Lost" since last year's stunning finale and after watching this premiere, I'm thrilled to say the show has still got game.
We open on a closeup shot of a pyramid of what looked to me like yellow squash. It's in front of a blue sky and ocean in the background. We're on the shot for about three seconds with no sound until a red sports car comes crashing through the pile of squash toward the camera. As the veggies tumble to the ground and the car screeches by, we see that the blue sky and ocean background were part of a picture on a delivery truck. We're not on the island. We're on the streets of LA and cop cars, sirens blaring, are chasing the sports car.
I was actually expecting our usual opening shot of a closeup of someone's eye, but this was a nice change up. Watching the episode a second time, I decided the pyramid wasn't of squash after all. Then I thought they might be mangoes but after checking this cool site, Tropical Fruit Photography, I decided they're not. I don't know what they are. See, already this show has me doing mental gymnastics. But I love it.
The car chase continues and we cut to someone getting dressed in a suit. It's Jack and on his television set is live "Breaking News" coverage of the car chase. Jack is drinking what looks like a vodka and orange juice. When the reporter on TV mentions the car being chased is a "vintage, 70's Camaro" Jack snaps to attention and says, "Damn it."
I watched this episode with my cousin and during the car chase, she kept saying, "It's Kate. It's Kate in the car." And I kept saying, "Shhhh." She couldn't tell what the pyramid was made of either.
The cops eventually corner the car and with drawn guns, order the driver out. The driver's door opens and who turns around with his hands up? Not Kate. Hurly.
Dude! I missed you.
In a useless panic, he tries to run. Since he hasn't lost any weight since he's been off the island, he doesn't get very far. As the cops handcuff him he yells out, "I'm one of the Oceanic Six! I'm one of the Oceanic Six!" Did I mention, this is a flash forward? Well, it is.
