The Crook That Swindled Couples
8 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the asthma medicine of Shannon Rutherford finishes, she has a chronic respiratory attack. Her brother Boone Carlyle convinces the survivors that James "Sawyer" Ford has stolen her spare medication, and Sayid Jarrah tortures Sawyer trying to find the drugs. Sawyer discloses an innermost secret to Kate Austen.

In my opinion, "Confidence Man" is the second best episode of "Lost" up to this moment. The dark past of Sawyer is disclosed, when he swindled couples after seducing the wives. The misleading of his letter is a great shift in the story. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Confidence Man"

Note: On 19 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
