TV Geek Out 151: Lost, "What They Died For"

TV Geek Out covers "What They Died For," the penultimate episode of Lost. In the Sideways world, Jack awakes to find another mysterious cut on his neck... Meanwhile, Ben catches Desmond in the school parking lot again and starts to give him a talking to, but is interrupted by Desmond's fist; this awesomely leads to him flashing to memories of his other life. As Ben is heading home later, Alex introduces him to her mother, Rousseau (who finally gets to look pretty!), and they invite him over for dinner. Across town, Desmond turns himself in to the police, and "reunites" with Sayid and Kate. During their transport to county jail, they're freed by Ana Lucia, and met by Hurley. Also, after talking to Ben, Locke finally gives in and tells Jack he can fix him. On the island, the survivors of the sub bombing mourn the loss of their friends, and on their way to find Desmond, they wind up having a vaguely informative fireside chat with Ghost Jacob. This leads to Jack volunteering to become the new Jacob and, after some ceremonial drinking of water, he is. We also finally rejoin the awkwardly awesome trio of Richard, Ben, and Miles as they reach Dharmaville, where they run into Widmore and Zoe in Ben's old house. Soon, though, Ben's put Widmore in the closet, Richard has been sent flying, and Miles has run off. Ben has a nice conversation with UnLocke on the porch and snitches on Widmore. UnLocke kills Zoe, and Ben shoots Widmore dead while he's whispering sweet answers into UnLocke's ear! Listen in as TV geeks Perry, Heather, and Dana discuss all this and Smokey's revelation to Ben that he wants to destroy the whole island here!
