Tv Season Info

Some of the island's mysteries and dangers are revealed during the second season, which spans 23 days (Nov. 4-27, 2004) and opens with Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly) and Locke (Terry O'Quinn) venturing into the hatch for the first time. There they discover Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick), whose job is to key a numeric sequence into a computer every 108 minutes. They eventually learn that the reason for this task (later undertaken by Locke) is to prevent the release of damaging electromagnetic activity (which can cause plane crashes, for instance). They also learn that the hatch and other structures on the island were built in the 1970s by a scientific research group called the Dharma Initiative. The survivors make their first sustained contact with passengers from Flight 815's tail section, led by a paranoid former L.A. cop named Ana Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez) and including psychologist Libby (Cynthia Watros) and a Nigerian drug dealer named Mr. Eko (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). It's not a happy reunion: The Tailies capture Michael (Harold Perrineau), Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) and Sawyer (Josh Holloway) because Ana Lucia thinks they belong to a mysterious and hostile group of islanders who come to be known as the Others.The misunderstanding is cleared up, but not before someone has a fatal encounter with Ana Lucia. In other developments, Claire (Emilie de Ravin) recalls what happened to her when she was abducted by the Others; Sun (Yunjin Kim) learns she is pregnant, even though Jin was sterile off the island; and Libby and Hurley (Jorge Garcia) forge a sweet relationship. Michael is reunited with his kidnapped son Walt (Malcolm David Kelley), but at great cost after the survivors find a wounded man (Michael Emerson) who calls himself Henry Gale. He says he's a marooned balloonist from Minnesota, but the survivors suspect Other-wise.

Critic Reviews for Lost Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

It's fun to watch allegiances shift, and priorities and attractions change, and how the group modulates to whatever dramas have beset them.

A reminder that the best long-form storytelling requires not only patience but uninterrupted enjoyment.

Dec 18, 2018 | Full Review…

This second year is even better than the first, with the mysteries and intrigue stepping up several notches.

Dec 18, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

"Man of Science, Man of Faith" kicks starts the second season with a fantastic Jack episode that really exemplifies the struggles he has as a leader and savior for this group throughout the series.

Dec 18, 2018 | Rating: 9.3/10 | Full Review…

For a show the features polar bears in the jungle, the walking dead, malevolent trails of "living" black smoke and a landlocked slave ship, it's some kind of an accomplishment that anything can really throw you for a loop at this point.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The origins of Jack's savior complex make a strong framework for the episode, and a great reminder that Julie Bowen is a very capable dramatic actress.

Coming full circle, ironically for a show that constantly references film, film has started referencing the show - M:I-3, for one, but of course that was Abrams' handiwork; expect more.

Miraculously, the second season of the show stepped up to the Herculean task of making sense of the bombshells.

May 21, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Season Two wasn't quite as brilliant as Season One, but for the most part Lost avoids that second year slump so many new shows fall into and continued to deliver some of the best stories on television.

Jun 5, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I enjoyed Season Two, and really like a lot about how it ended.
