'Lost': My recap for 'The Candidate' is live

daniel-dae-kim-lost-s6-320-2.jpg"Broken." That's the best way to describe me now, " Lost" fans, and I'm sure many of you feel the same way. Even more so that usual, my full recap took up all of my energy, but the episode itself essentially sucked the air out of me before I had a chance to put finger to keyboard in the first place.

So go read my full take, comment there, answer the poll, and come back here with any burning questions you might/will have concerning this heartbreaking episode. Normally, I try to come up with some catchy, snazzy word to cyber-shout for inclusion for consideration, but I'm feeling like that would do this episode a disservice. It wasn't perfect, but was the episode that "Lost" needed to fully show the stakes, ramp up the danger, remind us why we care, and send us hurtling into the final few hours of the series.
