Evil Manipulation
13 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

John Locke unsuccessfully tries to open the mysterious hatch in the woods with the support of Boone Carlyle. Meanwhile, he recalls his past,when he was approached by a weird old lady, who claimed to be his biological mother. After the DNA examination proving their bonds, he decides to look for his wealthy father, where a huge surprise waits for him. Locke and Boone find a crashed airplane on the top of a tree, and Boone has a serious accident.

"Deus Ex Machina" is an excellent episode, with a sordid tale of manipulation of human emotions. The dramatic story has a deep plot point that certainly will surprise the viewer. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Deus Ex Machina"

Note: On 22 March 2013, I saw this episode again.
