LOST: Down the Hatch | Season 2, Episode 7: “The Other 48 Days”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) trek across time and space as they go back to the beginning with “The Other 48 Days.”

In their recap of season two’s seventh episode, Josh and Mike dive into the lives of Ana-Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez), Mr. Eko (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Libby (Cynthia Watros) and the rest, as they and the other “Tailies” struggle to survive on the opposite side of the island. Josh and Mike talk about the events of the Tailies’ journey as it compares to the events of the main 815ers. Plus, is this the worst ending in LOST history? Let’s discuss!

“The Other 48 Days” was directed by Eric Laneuville and written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. It originally aired on November 16, 2005.

About Down the Hatch …

LOST: Down the Hatch is a full-tilt spoiler-filled rewatch of LOST. Every week, Josh and Mike break down an episode of LOST with the benefit of knowing the series’ full trajectory, using the following structure as a guide:

  • We Go “Fourth” – Josh and Mike begin each podcast with a deep-dive into the story both in front of and behind the camera, and they do so with the assistance of…
  • 8 Sounds – The events of LOST pop right off the camera and straight into your ears with eight memorable moments replayed on the podcast, helping us guide through the story;
  • 15/16 Others – Josh and Mike answer questions and comments sent their way through the official e-mail address: downthehatch@postshowrecaps.com
  • 23 Points – Each week, Josh and Mike hand out points for the best and worst characters of the episode in question, in a foolhardy attempt to determine the most and least valuable players in the LOST pantheon.
  • 4.2 Stars – Josh and Mike will attempt to create an official Down the Hatch ranking of every episode of LOST, by rating them all on a scale from 0 – 4.2. Josh and Mike will offer their individual scores, listeners’ scores will be averaged as a third data point, then the three points will be combined for the podcast’s official score on each episode.

Each episode of Down the Hatch clocks in at no less than 108 minutes. If the podcast falls short of that runtime, Josh and Mike have triggered a crisis! Consequences may (and almost certainly will) ensue thanks to the Frozen Donkey Wheel.
