For its final season, LOST tells the story of Richard. We are taken back to 1867, in an episode that could have easily be extremely bad and beyond.
This episode is truly magnificent and is one of the best episodes of the entire series. It is the only episode that is having a complete different form from the others.
After so many utterly boring small stories on the island, of hikes, guns, hostages and more, it feels like a tremendous relieve to have a completely different story.
Even the music of this episode is different than usual.
Nestor Carbonell, the actor portraying Richard, is giving a performance of a lifetime, I truly believe that. Carbonell went fully at it and provided an extremely vulnerable performance.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
As Donald Trump would say, it's all about location, location, location. The final scene of this episode is taking place in one of the most beautiful location of the entire world. We have seen this valley a thousand times in the series, but never from that standpoint.
One of the best episodes of the series. I give it 10 out of 10.
