When Jin Kwon is having a serious quarrel with his wife Sun Kwon, Michael Dawson defends her. Later, when Michael's raft is burnt and Jin has his arms injured by heat, Michael and Sawyer blame him for the incident. Sun speaks in English to defend her husband and he feels ashamed leaving her. Jin recalls how his love for Sun was destroyed by her father. The author of the attempt is disclosed in the end and is the bigger surprise of the story.

"In Translation" is a great episode of "Lost" where the obscure past of Jin in South Korea is disclosed, showing how violent Sun's father is. This episode shows also the beginning of the romance between Sayid Jarrah and Shannon Rutherford. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "In Translation"
