The “Jughead” episode is pretty high up on the scale of favorite Lost episodes. The island skipping through time has become a nice mechanism to reveal the island’s history. Charles Whidmore as a young soldier punk in the 50s! Once again, the island becomes the central character. Finally. And it totally made up for the 50 minutes of Penny throwing a huge wife fit all over Desmond’s shit about finding Faraday’s mom.
Favorite characters of this episode? Glad you asked. In list form:
Daniel Faraday – I want to talk in his low measured voice all day long. I need to disarm a bomb. Talking low and measured is how you do it. Do not underestimate this dark horse!
Young Charles Whidmore – He speaks Latin! All the Others speak Latin! How cool is that?
and of course, Juliet, who also speak Latin!
One thought on “Lost: Jughead (season 5, episode 2)”
I just blogged about this episode recently. The tim jumps are getting confusing for me.
Young Widmore reminded me a little bit of the hothead Percy from “The Green Mile”.
“Latin is a language, as dead as it can be.
It killed off all the Romans
And now it’s killing me”.
