Fate further intertwines our Oceanic 815 crew in the flash sideways, but the most memorable moments this week take place on the Island. Specifically, the iconic “bloodbath” that dwindles the number of our survivors down and forces us to say farewell to several main cast members (and not without some viewer backlash.) Ben and Kevin provide their own thoughts on that backlash and everything else going on as the end of the show draws close.

Unwillingly brought to the Island, Desmond is forced to be hit with yet another electromagnetic blast and his mind travels into our flash sideways where we see how his life with Widmore, Penny, Eloise, and others is very different than it is in the main timeleine. Speaking of different, we get a look into Hurley’s life as an entrepreneur and philanthropist who has no memory of Libby, although she certainly has memories of him, and the return of Michael.

The death of a character leads to criticism from Ben, a puzzling group split brings criticism from both hosts, and the answer of what the whispers are lead to a discussion on the pay off and if it was worthwhile.
