Lost: Down the Hatch | Season 4 Episode 7: “Ji Yeon”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) will not rest until they get the panda bear.

In “Ji Yeon,” Jin and Sun step into the spotlight together for the final time (for a while at least), with a hybrid flashback/flashforward split across time. Does the trick work? Is it a trick at all? Josh and Mike go over the twist and also talk about the developments on the freighter. Did you know there’s a spy on the boat???

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 eight sound clips from each episode.

• The Others – Josh and Mike answer questions sent their way by listeners through the official e-mail address: [email protected]

• 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 rank every episode of LOST, by rating them all on a scale from 0 – 4.2. Josh and Mike offer their individual scores, listeners’ scores will be averaged as a third data point, then the three points combine as the podcast’s official score on each episode.
