DarkUFO - Lost

Here is the Episode 5.08 - LaFleur recap from Erika Olson (aka "e") from LongLiveLocke.com.

As I mentioned at the end of my last entry, I'm heading out on vacation... so this post is going to be (relatively) short. Let me start by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed "LaFleur." The character interaction in this episode was some of the best we've seen all season. And how much did that Sawyer and Ageless Richard convo rock?

Almost as much as finally getting a look at the four-toed statue...


The hour began with what transpired above ground once Locke descended into the well but before he turned the FDW. Namely, Sawyer, Jin, Miles and Juliet stared up in wonder at the back of the four-toed statue -- which was much more than just a foot back in the day.

This opening scene is -- by far -- what's been buzzed about the most across the Lost community over the past 36 hours or so. Shortly after "LaFleur" ended, reader ML from Greece sent me a link to the Wikipedia entry for Anubis (also known as Inpu), the Egyptian God of mummification and the afterlife. Over the course of time, Anubis "became considered more the gatekeeper and ruler of the underworld, the "Guardian of the veil" (of "death"). Consequently, he was said to protect souls as they journeyed there, and thus be the patron of lost souls."

souls, get it?
