    The worst episode is clearly Across the Sea. Jo has already expressed her distaste for it in the past and it definitely wont be in the top 28. I disagree with it and think it is a unique and cool episode, with some obvious issues and problems but would put it maybe in the 80s-90s. After my recent rewatch I would actually put Theres No Place Like Home as the number 1 episode, there is so much in that episode that it is perhaps an underlooked one. Looking forward to the final part and the pilot watch!

  • SSEO

    Unbelievably tedious.

  • Brian Shea

    Across the Sun is clearly dead last as other commenters have said. Personally I think the episode doesn’t deserve to get that low (Adrift would be my pick for worst episode of all time), but it is a low placing episode and can’t be too surprised by it.

    This would be my quickly assembled ranking of the remaining episodes. On a rewatch now (start of season 3) and would probably shift some of these around a little bit if I could remember the details more. I tend to fight season 5 a bit overrated and consider it my least favorite season, so a number of its episodes go out early here.

    Last – Across the Sun

    28)Because You Left
    27)Lafleur
    26)Man of Science, Man of Faith
    25)Dead is Dead
    24)Orientation
    23)The Other 48 Days
    22)Jughead
    21)Greatest Hits
    20)Pilot
    19)The Variable
    18)The Candidate
    17)The Man From Tallahassee
    16)Ab Aeterno
    15)Flashes Before Your Eyes
    14)The Incident
    13)The Shapes of Things to Come
    12)Live Together, Die Alone
    11)Exodus
    10)There’s No Place Like Home
    9)The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham
    8)Numbers
    7)Deus Ex Machina
    6)The Brig
    5)The Man Behind the Curtain
    4)The End
    3)Walkabout
    2)The Constant
    1)Through the Looking Glass

  • Steve Flowers

    Disappointing that Jo is likely going to put Across the Sea as worst. I think it is at worst maybe somewhere in the 70s or 80s.

    Also – my thoughts on Expose: I recently re-watched the entire series and got to Expose with an open mind. I have decided on a re-watch that Expose is decent, and I like it for the reasons Josh stated. HOWEVER, I can’t stand the flashback portions of the episode. All the on-island stuff is fun, but everything from when they were in Australia with the guy they steal the diamonds from is super boring.

  • Noah Groves

    Petition to move Across the Sea into the 80’s/90’s! I am looking forward to hearing the rest of the panels opinion on one of the most divisive Lost episodes ever but I feel like most fans wouldn’t put it at the very bottom. Shame Jo wont be there to defend her decision as to why it will be where it will!
