Genuinely the most exciting episode so far. We met (re-met if you’ve seen the webisodes) the survivors of Flight 462, one of whom is badly burnt leaving only Alex left to care for him. They meet the main characters on a Lost-style beach, complete with fuselage and luggage.
Chris mercy kills a man with a broken back and Nick survives a zombie pit and discovers that the dead don’t go after you when you’re covered in guts. Back on the boat, Madison and Travis unglog a blocked pipe and everyone finds out about Strands jaunt to Mexico.
Things end on a mildly shocking moment too as Strand cuts the line that pulls Alex and Jake in a raft behind the yacht. Ooh things are gonna get tense.
Even before the beach showdown I thought it was a slightly better episode than usual. I wasn’t as bored as I thought I would be and I think it’s down to the young characters being on their own and exploring a bit. Yeah, solid. Best of the season so far.
