Every time I write an entry about the night’s episode of Lost, I like to try and work in the episode’s title cleverly in the headline. But because tonight’s episode of Lost, Ab Aeterno is a Latin phrase meaning something along the lines of “from the beginning of time,” I’ve got little to work with.
Hence, the titular line of this entry is more a description of what happened tonight. Although for Lost viewers, it was much more than a job interview. Not only did we get the backstory four years in the making, Ab Aeterno was chock full of Island mythology, the struggle between good and evil and possibly foreshadowing where the overall story is going.
